I don't quite understand why, but after I made a couple of changes to my computer, the monitor will turn itself off whenever I go into the shell by pressing CTRL+ALT+F1/F2/F3...Also, the icons in vasmcc, gslapt, and a few other programs show as dashes and dots.
The changes I made were, I added a memory card of 256mb, and I changed the hostname...
The first thing that happened, I had gotten an error a few times about how Xfce wouldn't run correctly because of a hostname problem. Which it seemed to be true, there were quite a few problems. However, now I have it running, but there still seems to be a problem, and I'm not sure which is the culprit.
I've changed the hostname back to what it originally was. The only difference now is that I don't get the error message when loading Xfce.
Any ideas as to what is causing this problem?
Oh, I ought to explain why I changed the hostname in the first place.
I hooked up my old computer that, also, has VL5.9 on it in another room with a Belkin F5D7050 adapter, so I figured I could create a network and hook the two computers up. Well, I don't remember exactly what all I did, but I tried to connect to it, which nothing did work.
Which is the reason I renamed the hostname. On that computer I had it set up as the same hostname as this computer.
