Help with XFree86 configuration on RedHat7.3



Hi,

I’m installing RedHat 7.3 as a guest OS on my VMware. During installation for the mouse, I’ve selected “Generic 3 Button Mouse (PS/2)”. Installation was successful.

 

After rebooting I’ve got text console instead GNOME GUI I’ve expected.

 

I’ve changed default runlevel to 5 in /etc/inittab. No success, after reboot.

 

After running startx from the command line I’ve got the following error:

Parse error on line on line 242 of section InputDevice in file /etc/X11/XF86Config

(EE) Error parsing the config file

(EE) Error from xf86HandleConfigFile()

 

Fatal server error:

No screens found

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

After checking config file /etc/X11/XF86Config on line 242 I have:

            Device               “mouse”

 

I’ve run /usr/sbin/mouseconfig to play with the mouse (changed from Generic 3 Button -> Generic 2 Button and vice versa). Run startx and again experienced the same problem as above.

 

Please help.
