Respawning too fast error after Redhat 7.1 install
Posted on 2001-08-14
I just installed Redhat 7.1 on my laptop. Here are the laptop specs:
Dell Latitude CPx
Video Card: ATI Technologies Inc. RAGE P/M Mobility AGP 2x
Monitor I'm using: ViewSonic GS771
NIC: Intel Pro/100 SR Mobile Combo Adapter
After the install I rebooted the computer and the screen flashes a few times and takes me to a loging prompt. After a few minutes I get this message,
INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes.
I figured this had something to do with my video card/monitor. I then tried changing monitors but that didn't help. I then tried going into Xconfigurator and changing video card/monitor settings, but that did not help.
I'm fairly new to Linux so if any of you have any ideas, please provide detailed steps for things I could try.
