i have just installed the latest version of Redhat Linux..I am also a complete newbie to Linux and most of the time i have no idea what is happening.. I have a 3DLABS Permedia 2 AGP graphics card and for the life of me i cant get X Windows to run.. I have used all possible configurations from the standard SVGA to other display drivers with nothing working..All that happens is that the monitor switches off which i suppose means that the graphics card isnt sending signals to the monitor anymore.. I read somewhere that some versions of RedHat dont have support for AGP graphics cards? Anyway, i would appreciate some help in this situation of mine as i have no idea what to do.
my system configuration is as follows:
AMDK62 300 CPU
5.1 GB Maxtor HD
3DLABS Permedia 2 8MB graphics card
SB 16 sound card
15" Videocom monitor
