View Full Version : Monitor Driver

[WARNING]: Clueless with linux]
Ok, I got through the installation in text mode fine until it gets to the restart. So I can't boot fedora core 5 in graphical mode, and every time I try I get this screwed up screen. I'm assuming this is because it doesn't have the driver for my screen. So my question is how do I fix this so I can boot in graphical mode? It's on a notebook its a Toshiba Satellite a100/a105 .
Thank you very much in advance!!!

Search your display refresh rates and depth, then edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf values to match.
Also search monitor and video posts here, there are many posts with one that may be a match for your situation. I googled this up-

I logged into the root, then typed in "nano /etc/x11/xorg.conf"
It took me to a nearly blank screen with this at the top "GNU nano 1.3.8 File: /etc/x11/xorg.conf"
There are some options on the bottom of the screen as well. However I have no idea how to select these options. Other than that there is nothing on the screen. Any idea what I should do?

Should be nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf (the X in X11 is CAP)

Also, that stuff at the bottom ^X is control+X to exit...etc I think you can figure the rest.

Did you end up with a solution and if so can you can share with the community. It seems that the LCD monitors cause some unique problems.
