Configuring video adapters manually
To manually configure or modify your video adapter:
Run /usr/X11R6/bin/X -configure.
This command detects the video adapter and creates
a basic X11 server configuration file, named xorg.conf.new,
to load the appropriate video drivers for your hardware.
This file is created in the root directory.
To test that this configuration file works, run:
/usr/X11R6/bin/X -config /xorg.conf.new
Your screen should display a black and white grid pattern
and an X mouse cursor. To exit the test, press
If the test fails, run the Video Configuration Manager
to configure your video adapter.
If the test of the X11 server configuration file is
successful, use this command to put the new configuration
cp /xorg.conf.new /etc/xorg.conf
Run scologin start This starts the X server
If the X server is already running, run scologin stop first.
To modify your video configuration,
run the Video Configuration Manager.
