    problem with xfree86

    Hi everybody,

    While installing Redhat 9 i skiped Xconiguration(monitor,video card), Now I want to reconfigure them. I followed the following steps-
    #XFree86 -configure

    then system offer me to run the following command-

    #XFree86 -xf86config /root/xf86Config.new

    after giving the command only the mouse pointer appeared and nothing else.
    Anyone know the solution of this.
    Thanks
    Nazib

    hello,
    i just run Xconfigurator for RH9. It worked quite well for me. There is also xf86config.

    You may wish to get a more recent distro - that one is about 2 years old and the fedora releases are quite good.

    Agreed. Fedora Core 3 is the continuation of Red Hat. It's basically Red Hat Linux 12. The project website is at http://fedora.redhat.com/ . I'd recommend Fedora 3 over Red Hat 9 if it's at all possible.
