Full Version: VGA(0) error when starting X

(EE) VGA(0): virtual height (0) is too small for the hardware (min 1)


How can I go about fixing this? It also said something like:


(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration


If I fix the VGA(0) will teh screens problem go away? I'm lost. Didnt see it in the configuration file... Any suggestions besides an attempt to drown myself?



try running redhat-config-xfree86 again


see if you can correctly setup your monitor there, and the video card,


that is assuming you are running redhat 8/9/fedora





Err... yeah i'm using gentoo right now. Any way to configure it correctly? Should I import the configuration file from redhat?



Look for the entry 'virtual' in your xorg.conf (XF86Config-4)


SubSection "Display"
 Depth  24
 Modes  "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Virtual 1280 800


Somtimes the virtual screen size messes with X. Simply remove that line, hopefully X will start and you can play with the settings again.

Why do you assume him running Redhat/Fedora in the Gentoo forums? :)
