Re: X start-up failure!! [Solved]
The problem was solved last night! :)
The source of problem was the horizontal refresh rate
of monitor! The setup had chosen the refresh rate to
be in 40-and more range. As I had worked with Mandrake
and Slackware, I have these distro in my localhost.
So, mounted the root of those ones in /mnt/root, the
copied the XF86Config-4 file from /etc/X11/
(Slackware) into /etc/X11/ (Debian) :)
Nice working... Thanx for your recommandations :)
