Re: FC5 X can not started, it just black screen


I can't use system-config-display to reconfig the monitor.
after I followed http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=68681
, when I try to startX, X will freeze. luckily, when I delete the file
/etc/X11/xorg.conf, now it works!!!!

Thank you all, now my FC5 works ok with almost all the multimedia
plugins installed. only two problem:

1.How to play WMV format video in webpages;
2.The FC5 is not so fast as I would expected, I am running FC5 i386
(32bit on 64 bit arch)on athlon64 3000+ with 1G RAM.How can I fine
tuning it to run more fast? Although I can accept its speed.
