X and Fluxbox :: Any good XFree86 tutorials?
Are there any good XFree86 tutorials that explain what to do after typing startx? I've learned recently how to get into XFree86 on Damn Small Linux, but I have no idea what to do once I'm in. Since things don't work the way I expect, I end up going back to Xvesa.
You have to modify/create two files - /home/dsl/.xserverrc and /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
The first is explained in the .info file and for the second, perhaps the easiest thing to do is google on "XF86Config-4" and the name of your graphics card/chip.
Once you've done the above, "startx" will work.
Yes, I have gone through the procedure involving /home/dsl/.xserverrc and /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 .
The problem comes AFTER I enter "startx". I get so confused that I have to control-alt-backspace to prompt and use xsetup.sh to get back into Xvesa.
If you've modified .xserverrc correctly and chosen/edited XF86Config-4 correctly for your system it should "just work" after typing "startx" and look exactly the same as the base dsl using Xvesa.
What graphics chip/card do you have? What XF86Config-4 are you using? You could also look in /var/log/XFree86.0.log (or something like that) for error messages that could give a clue as to the problem you're having.
