startx no screens found
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 18, 2010
hello you all
well I need some help from you guys
recently I tried to install vncserver over my dedicated server and after lots and lots of tries I have got to a stop since I don't know how to go further
so let me describe what I did
first of all my linux distro is CentOS
I have managed to install and run vncserver successfully (firewall is off on server) and added fluxbox to the vnc startup script
but seems I have some issues connecting with the IP and so on
tried to debug and see what exactly is wrong and got to thing that there is no issue with vnc as it's installed and runs correctly
so tried to open startx (X Window System - well at least I think that is is since I'm no expert in Linux/CentOS) and got a error that says
startx "no screens found" lfs 7.7

After building X and getting to the instructions to startx I get:
startx "no screens found" lfs 7.7 Page 3

You place xorg.conf to wrong dir - xorg-server just ignore it and use defaults:
[ 2043.173] (==) Using system config directory "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d"
In my system I see:
[ 5.066] (==) Using config file: "/etc/xorg.conf"]
But this not standard path - I build xorg-server with --sysconfdir=/etc. You can find all standard path in 'man xorg.conf'.
startx redhat 9.0 Fatal server error no screens found:
- date: September 8, 2003
attempting to upgrade a redhat 9.0 minimal install to include xwindows. (i believe that the problem is that there is no /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 or /etc/X11/XF86Config file. in the old days, i would just type xf86config and work from there but this command is not available).
i used the graphical install to update the system using the custom option without problem. after rebooting, i type startx and get the following error:

Startx Fatal server error, No screens found
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 26, 2004
I am new to BSD, in fact this is the first time i have ever tried it, i read up on it, liked the sounds of it and Replaced my nice Slackware installation with it.
I did the "Full Install" option and didnt really configure anything but the mouse and dhcp (wich didnt work cause i cant telenet).
Now im no where near advanced enough to start playing in black and white- i need a Gui for the time being.
But when i type in Startx i get fatal server error , no screens found.
Now i can not utelise this pc im using right now for much longer- i would appreciate a swift reply when you have the time - else i re-install slack and wonder what i might have missed out on.
[SOLVED] Installing nVidia drivers with Optimus support, startx gives error "no screens found"
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 2, 2013
Just spent most of the day seeing if I could figure this out on my own. I feel like I did reasonably well for a first attempt, but X will not start and I haven't been able to figure out how to fix it...so here we go!
I have a Dell XPS 17 laptop that has both Intel and nVidia graphics with Optimus. I spent some time reading the Slackware documentation, along with the instructions on SlackBuilds.org before attempting the procedure.
Here's a summary of what I did:
1) Install xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist package from /extra on the Slackware disc
2) Install nvidia-kernel from SlackBuilds
3) Install libvdpau from SlackBuilds
4) Install nvidia-driver with COMPAT32="yes" from SlackBuilds
5) Copy /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-nvidia.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
After doing this, everything seemed to be ok. I saw no errors during boot, and I also saw a message that the nvidia module had been loaded successfully. I saw no mention of nouveau anywhere, indicating it h

Can you post the content of the last lines of /var/log/XFree86.0.log (or Xorg.0.log, if it's x.org you're using)? I had the same problem with an nvidia card, but the problem probably hasn't actually got anything to do with a screen not found but with something else; the screen error message is just the result of a series of errors. In my case it was a set of two undefined symbols in the nvidia driver which led to the nvidia mdoule not getting loaded. In the log file it actually says something along the lines of 'I did find a screen, but there's no useful configuration'.
XF86free: fatal server error: no screens found
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 5, 2004
Hey everyone, I have recently intalled debian linux on a work machine. I had X working before, and the config file looks good to me. I was wondering if anyone could look it over to see if there is an error in it that I am missing.
It is giving me this error:
#> fatal server error:
#> no screens found
My Hardware: PS/2 scrool mouse, s3 virge video card, gateway vx900 monitor, us-en 104 key keyboard.
Here is my xf86config file:
FontPath "unix/:7100" # local font server
# if the local font server has problems, we can fall back on these
"Fatal server error: no screens found" after updating intel drivers (Intel GMA 3650)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 28, 2012
I've just bought the new netbook Asus 1025c and as soon as I got it out of the paper box I installed on it Slackware 13.37 (dual boot with W7Starter).I compiled the 3.3 kernel in order to get the support, even if experimental, for the Cedarview processor and especially for that GMA 3650 that is now ruining my patience!
Since the compiling of the new kernel I got problems with X because at the logout the screen became black (and the "TerminateServer=true" didn't work for me).
So I downloaded and built from scratch the latest stable release of Intel Linux Graphics (using ./compile -prefix=/usr because otherwise mesa, x86-intel would have been installed on /usr/local). I changed the xorg.conf putting intel as the driver and writing the resolution I achieve in Windows(1024x600). When I rebooted there was no problem until "startx" when appeared that ugly message. I've read some solutions regarding the also "infamous" GMA500 which seems to be the elder si
