Full Version: Xserver Cannot Start
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
krmilburn
I've just made my system dual boot for the first time (Windows XP/Red Hat 7.2) but I am having problems with my xserver, it cannot start.

I assume this is a problem with my graphics card - GeForce4 MX 440, it was not in the list provided when choosing my card but I was advised to select the generic GeForce2 card.

Below is the full error log I get when running:
$ startx &> out
$ more out

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks
Keith
