VGA(0) error when starting X


Recommended Posts

(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

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

 

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

 

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