xinit locks up when .xinitrc specified
Posted on 1998-12-07
I'm setting up XF86_SVGA on Redhat 5.2 and find that
"xinit" runs OK, as long as there is NO .xinitrc
If there IS an .xinitrc file in my home directory
(even if it is an empty file: 0 bytes in it),
when I start xinit my monitor says
"invalid sync frequency" and there is no
way out. Ctrl-Alt-Bsp and Ctrl-Alt-Del don't work, and
I have to reboot. AAAaaarrrgh.
How can I fix this?
I'm running a generic multisync monitor (works with
AcceleratedX) and a Diamond Stealth 3D 3000
which, according to SuperProbe, is S3 ViRGE/VX.
I used xf86config to set it up, and xf86config recommends
Less important, but if you have a hint I'd be grateful ...
How can I get ctrl-alt-del to work?
Many many thanks!
