Re: [K12OSN] xserver error



Norbert,

First off,  'VESA' would be wrong.  You'd need 'vesa'  (LOWERCASE).

If that doesn't work, you could try the older XFree86 3.3.6 drivers.
To do that, you'd preface the name of the driver with 'XF86_'.

Probably a good choice would be:

   XSERVER = "XF86_SVGA"


If you continue getting the 'Parse error', it would be interesting to
see what is at line 60 of the XF86Config.1 file.  To do that,
try setting:

    SCREEN_01 = shell

THen, reboot the terminal.  You should get a bash prompt.  At that
point, type 'startx', and it should attempt to launch the Xserver.
It will likely fail and return you to the shell.

Then, you can go look at the file in /tmp.
