Failing to start X with "no screens found"
« on: August 17, 2007, 03:17:26 pm »

i hav just finished installing VL,but at the end of auto-configuration of X-Window got some problems
it always shows a dialog named "Error Error" to let me to configure the xorg.conf,when i try to configure the screen.
So i just followed the instrunctions to configure it.But my Videocard(ATI Radeon X1300)can not been found in the list,and i just chose the "ati" drivers with "PCI:1:0:0".so finished the configuration.
But still it doesn't work,everytime when i startx,there is the fatal error of "no screens found"

anyone knows how to solve my promblem?

thanks a lot!!

Boot into VL, choosing "linux-tui" at the lilo prompt. Login as root. Run "vasm", then choose SUPER, XWINDOW, XCONF and reconfigure X, hoping it will pick up the right drivers this time around.
