I have installed arch 0.6 (ISO not base), but when I tried to launch XFCE (startX, startxfce,...etc.) the following error message occurs and stop me the desktop manager:
(EE) Virtual hight (0) is too small for the hardware.....
(EE) Screen found, but not......
Please, can you help me.
Thanks for this very nice distro.
Yes, it's a X error. When I launch XF86Config, I set "tnt riva" as card and I set 16 Mb of memory card.
The kernel is 2.6.3.
I think that I have done a mistake with the video card definition when I changed the XF86Config.
Can you post the Screen section of your XF86Config?

Yes, but I can't post today because this problem is in my home computer and at home I don't have any internet connection.
I will post all tomorrow in the afternoon.
The next week I will install arch 0.6 also in my notebook at office.
I think that all will go fine.
Ciao and thanks.
I had the same error/problem, it had to do with the color depth being too high. I could run any resolution, but only in 8-bit color. As soon as I installed the proper driver for the gfx-card, I could run in any color depth.

Excuse for the delay.
I am solved the problem. The problem is the video card set-up. After I have installed this well (RIVA TNT2) screen works fine.
I have another problem: I have the mouse only in USB port. Where I can find the device? /dev/tty00 doesn't exixt.
Another stupid question: under bash which are the commands to delete a file, to copy a file in other directory and so...?
Ciao to everybody.
I am very happy becacuse yesterday I solved the USB mouse problem (thanks to all forum users...) and I have my Arch 0.6 distro on the PC.
This week I try to install this wonderfull distro on my Gericom blackbuster laptop.
Ciao and thanks.
