RedHat on Toshiba Laptop 740CDT
Posted on 1998-01-14
Do you have any tips on configuring the Xwindows side (Xfree86 or MetroX) to work with the Toshiba Laptop 740CDT. I am using RedHat 4.2. Specifically, 1) What display/monitor should I select, 2) What pointing device should I select, 3) how should I configure the PCMCIA card? (3COM model 3C562D-TP, 33K modem + 10Base-T).
At this time, I have been selecting different configurations to see what will work and I still haven't hit it. When I type "startx" from the command line I get a blank screen (black). I have used the control + alt + backspace to try to get out of this (I am assuming that it is in Xwindows but can't display anything), but it doesn't do anything. I have to restart the system.
Any advice would greatly be appreciated.
