    "Error: No suitable X-Server found for your card"

    Hi,

    I'm new to Linux alltogether, I'm trying to make the change from a Windows Background.

    I was pointed to Knoppix and the release that I currently have on Cd is Knoppix 3.2 21/03/2003 Beta.

    I have a new Dell Optiplex GX260 which is capable of loading knoppix. Eventially I wanto to be able to Dual-boot with Knoppix and windows 2000.

    I am able to load Knoppix on CD if I do the following commands.

    Knoppix testcd or knoppix failsafe.

    Once I try to run knoppix on its own, I get the following errors.



    Starting X11.....
    Retrying with Server XFree86 (vesa).
    Retrying with Server XFree86 (fbdev).
    Error: No Suitable X-Server found for your card.


    I have tried many cheat codes, but I always get the same message.
    Also I have tried to go into expert mode and edit XF86Config.

    None of these attempts were successful.

    Here are some of my settings when loading up:

    Video is ATI|Radeon RV200 QW [Radeon 7500], using XFree86 (radeon) Server
    Monitor is DELe000, H:30-80KHz, V:56-85Hz
    Using Modes "1024X768" "800X600" "640X480"


    If anyone can help me, it will be appreciated as i want to install Knoppix to my harddrive as soon as possible.

    Thanks
    Iss

    Try xmodule=radeon or xmodule=ati

    And I would also suggest posting the output of "sudo lspci -v" (only the part about your card) so Klaus Knopper cn add it to the autodetect scripts.

    Error: No suitable X-Server found for your card

    Hi guys,

    I tried both xmodule=radeon or xmodule=ati and they were both unsuccessful.

    Here are the results of the sudo lspci -v command:

    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon 7500 QW (prog-if 00 [VGA])
    Subsystem: ATI Technologies Inc: Unknown device 103a
    Flags: Stepping, 66Mhz, medium devsel, IRQ 16
    Memory at f0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=128M]
    I/O ports at ec00 [size=256]
    Memory at ff8f0000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)[size=64K]
    Expansion ROM at 80000000 [disabled][size=128k]
    Capabilities: [58] AGP version 2.0
    Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2


    Any Suggestions will be welcomed.

    Thanks,
    Iss

    Error: No suitable X-Server found for your card

    Hi guys,

    I have some more information, which should be helpful.

    Here are some errors that comeup when booting:



    1) Error: One processor only found.
    PCI: Device 00:1f.1 not available because of resource collisions.

    2) Autoconfiguring devices ____ insmod: insmod: a module named input already exists
    insmod: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-xfs/kernel/drivers/input/input.o failed
    insmod: insmod: insmod usbmouse failed
    ______________________ Done.

    Also I did some more testing with some more cheat codes
    and there were two parameters that brought back some
    results these were:

    1 - nofirewire - Knoppix booted successfully, but the problem was
    that my usb mouse didn't work, however my
    usb keyboard worked.

    2 - nousb - Knoppix booted successfully and both my usb mouse
    and usb keyboard worked.

    I hope this info will be of assistants.

    Thanks,
    Iss

    Sounds like IRQ conflicts to me.

    Now this is EXACTLY what I am referring to in my sig line. Thank you iss for taking the time to post what YOU did to resolve your problems. RIGHT ON! So many people have all the time in the world when they need something fixed on their system but it's funny how so many of them are just too busy to post back with results whether they be good OR bad. I'm sure that if any of you reading this have searched the forums you have encountered several dead-end posts. You thought you had something you could use only to get to an end that has no resolution. THAT SUCKS!

    boot: nosmp
