Re: Xwindow


How did you create the X server configuration file /etc/X11/XF86Config? The 
error message indicates there is something wrong with the configuration file 
and that is why the X server can not start.

I have had good success with the XF86Setup utility which comes with the 
xserver-vga16 package. If you try using it to create the XF86Config file does 
the problem go away?

For more information about XFree86 and the Tseng Chipsets see 
http://www.xfree86.org/3.3.1/tseng.html. Section '1. Supported chipsets' says 
that the SVGA server should work but there are some exceptions.
