    Default Error : No screens found

    Hi guys,

    This is my first topic / post in this forum but I have learned alot by reading the forums. I already used backtrack two on my laptop with a ipw3945 network card installed, but now I'm stuck at backtrack three. If i want to startup backtrack three with 'startx' I get this error :

    Fatal server error :
    No screens found.

    Is there a explantion for it?
    I used the search, but I couldn't get an obvious answer.

    Regards,

    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    How did you get acces to the xconf files? When I'm booting from the live cd it says : permission denied?..

    probably it's because you tried to open it with

    Code:
    bt ~ # /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    but, you can't open a text-file like this.
    you have to open it with an editor like vi:

    Code:
    bt ~ # vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf
