No, that is NOT what "no screens found" means.
"no screens found" means...
when initialization was done and the first X client was about to
launch, there's no display available to talk to.
It *usually* means all your modelines were out of spec (even the "default"
ones that X makes up for VESA compliance) or some other illegal combination
led to no screens being safe to use.
'Twas said there were a lot of (II) messages. Some of them may have been
details about the monitor? Deletion of bad modes should be (WW) messages.
But autodetected capabilities would be (II) ...
A glance at the attached config (to the message ahead of this one) doesn't
look out of the ordinary, but I don't have access to that model. So now
I'm curious about the actual messages.
startx 2> startx.damage.report
(okay, okay, usually folks use .X.err, or something like, but this would
be a friendlier attachment)
