Hi all,

I am a primer user of red hat linux.
My computer was installed red hat linux 7.2 and I can use x-window.
After I changed my display card to G-force 4, I can't use x-window, the
graphical user interface again. So, how can I do ?? Thanks.

If you were switching your video card from a non-nvidia product to a NVidia product, you need to make sure you changed the driver that XFree86 loads upon startup. In your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file, look for your Video card's entry and change it to the module "nv". Or, you can just run your X configurator again to let it detect everything.
