    Hi When i run the Xfree86 I get the following error msg: =================================================== Module loader present (==) Log file
    Message 1 of 1 , Mar 22, 2000

      When i run the Xfree86 I get the following error msg:

      Module loader present
      (==) Log file "/var/log/XFree86.0.log", Time Wed Mar 22 11:09:09 2000
      (EE) Unable to locate/open configfile
      (EE) Error from xf86HandleConfigFile ()

      Fatal server error
      no screens found

      Also the Xfontserver seems to be "gone"... it doesn't load at the bootup
      anyways... when I try to configure it and try to run the xserver config thingy
      I see a cross and a "grey/blue/black" screen... thou my computer freeze...

      You have any ideas on this?!

      Can you please help me with this XFree86 4.0 installation problem

      I've installed my voodoo2 drivers and also tested that the whole thing
      works within the 3 alt. there is. (I installed the rpm's)
      So that one should be cool

      Now I try to configure XFree86 by typing # XFree86 -configure

      It now shows the following errormsgs
      You need to have Glide installed to run the glide driver for XFree86.
      Also, you need to tell XFree86 where the libglide2x.so file is placed
      by making a soft link in the /usr/X11R6/lib/modules directory that
      points to the libglide2x.so file. For example (if your libglide2x.so
      file is in the /usr/lib):

      # ln -s /usr/lib/libglide2x.so /usr/X11R6/lib/modules

      (II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/glide_drv.0
      (EE)Failed to load module "glide" (submodule could not be loaded, 2)
      No devices to configure. Configuration failed.

      I tried that ln -s /usr/lib/libglide2x.so /usr/X11R6/lib/modules syntax
      and it didn't give me any errormsg's or complaints and then I tried the
      # XFree86 -configure and it still gave me the same errormsg.

      You have any ideas on what can be wrong?!

      Please email me at soulreaper@... (when I don't have the time
      to monitor every list that I'm on (I get 100+ emails/day) I'm also on all
      the lists as "daily digest" so.
