I have a SIS 6326 (4M AGP) video card, an AXION CA 14-54 monitor and the grafic interface from Redhat 6.o do not work properly...
After I install the video card from Redhat's list, I choose Non interlaced SVGA monitor , run the tests and receive an error. I ignore it and when I type startx, the grafic interface starts, but don't see allmost anything...
If i run one terminal, type in something and close it, the window image of the terminal stays on screen...

Could u tell me what is the problem or where I could find some drivers for my monitor...?

Sesse,

Edit the /etc/X11/XF86Config file and go to the section:

 # Device configured by Xconfigurator

 Insert under the "BoardName" line:
 
 option "no_bitblt"
 option "no_imageblt"
 option "sw_cursor"

 Save the file and try startx.
 
Another line that can be added in the same place is:

 option "no_accel"

Conversely you could go to XFree86 (www.xfree86.org) and get the 4.0 version of the server package...
