Subject: [gentoo-user] Is starting xdm enough to see something in X?
Date: Fri, 22 May 2009 18:26:48
1 Title sort of says it. I have an old machine that I'm setting up as a
2 Myth server. I didn't want X on the machine but I'm having trouble so
3 I emerged xdm and start it using /etc/init.d/xdm start. The drivers
4 get loaded but I get a black screen. No error message in the X log
5 file.
7 I haven't messed with X at this level before. What's the minimum test
8 of X that would display a terminal or something very basic?
10 Thanks,
11 Mark
