Linux - a couple of minor setup annoyances...
This is Red Hat Linux 7.0 on a Dell Inspiron 7500 w/an ati rage pro mobility 8mb video card and a 3com pcmcia 10/100 nic. I tried what was recommended by someone with the defaultdepth (setting it to 16) and this is what I get:
ebc1558 (my computername) login: according to /var/run/gdm.pid, gdm was already running (743), but seems to have been murdered mysteriously."
This message appears, then the screen blips out a few times and it repeats with a different, higher number in parenthesis and it keeps doing that. In order to get back into Linux I have to boot with the Linux boot disk and run Lilo. What's weird is that when the GUI first displays the big red hat cloak and dagger looking guy and the words red hat appear beautifully, then one or two seconds later, when the login screen appears they both fade out. It's okay as it is right now, at least it works, right? I'd just like to know if there's anything else to try. This is a laptop. Dell Inspiron 7500 with a 3com 10/100 pcmcia nic.
I would like it if you could also tell me how to change the boot order so that pcmcia starts before my nic. When it starts it says it's initializing it and then it immediately says it's delaying it and it fails, although it ends up working just fine. I'm using dhcp and i'm being assigned an address and everything.
