I installed Redhat 5.2 on my computer but i am having problems with configuring X Windows.
during setup, when i was asked for what video card i have, but since my card is not listed, i chose the closest one which is S3 <something>.
but when i start X Windows, my desktop is larger than my monitor screen and the resolution is very low. so i tried XF86Setup but whenever i try to use the S3 server, I get a
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: can't connect: errno = 111
so i tried running XF86Setup again and did not change anything in the video card settings. this time it worked but the resolution is just in the 300<something> that everything is so large that i can't do any good thing with it.
I have an S3 Trio3D/2X 8Mb video card and a monitor that can handle up to 1024x768 resolution.
What can I do to fix this? Where can i download a video server that supports my card?
