I'm so new to to Linux it is silly. I'm reading everything I can get my hands on. I can't get X to work on my HP 712/80.
I've tried a XF86Config file from the list, but it bombed out.
I've tried a XF86Config-4 file from the list, but it bombed out too.
Every time I try to run xinit, I'm getting "can't open display".
From previous messages read, I figure I must have to use the framebuffer stuff...but HOW? I used the fbdev tag in the XF86Config file, and it seems to get a bit further, but still can't open the display.
I need some idiot guide steps in the right direction....Please be patient with me.
