problems with X

Hello everyone,
I am pretty much a noob at linux and I just installed Suse 11 on an itanium64 host. I wasn’t able to install with gui and now I cannot startx or any other gui (kde, gnome, etc.). When I tried to install the OS I got an error saying that I couldn’t use gui because I didn’t have 96 mb of ram or some other issue.

System specs: Dell 3250, ia64, rage xl ati graphics card, 4 gigs ram.

I have tried running startx with a few parameters lately like “startx – -depth4” and 8 16 24 32
“startx – -fppbb 8” etc.

I have no idea what to do now and I can’t seem to find information anywhere else on this kind of issue anymore.

Here are some logs:

When I tried to install the OS I got an error saying that I couldn’t use gui because I didn’t have 96 mb of ram or some other issue.
If this a VM, what RAM has been assigned to it?

First try the failsafe boot. If that doesn’t work do this:
Boot to level 3
At the CLI login, login with username and pass
switch to su

then do

sax2 -r -m 0=vesa

reboot

This is not a VM install.

failsafe didn’t work and when I ran “sax2 -r -m 0=vesa” it aborted with this log:

It’s just your earlier xorg.conf file had vmware in there?

hmmm, I guess so. That shouldn’t really affect anything should it?

I’m trying to figure why xorg is configuring to vmware when you say it’s not virtual machine

i re-installed through vnc and was able to see a gui installation when I did this through vnc but after installation no gui is able to load.

Here are the new files:

Xorg.conf:

I am pretty much stumped. I’ve tried so many different things without any success really.

Have you actually been to ATI site to see what driver they offer - if any?

They don’t offer any support for IA64 (itanium 2) processors. Everything that I’ve seen over there says that it does not support ia64.

I hate Itanium so bad!

Is it worth looking at a card that will work (nvidia)?

I would rather try more on this than ordering a graphics card.

I think the main problem is that the mach64 chipset is no longer
supported/developed even the legacy drivers for it were a bit cr^p and it is
well beyond its best buy date.

IIRC they were a pig to get running on all OS`s not just Linux that is why
the developer probably threw in the towel when they went out of fashion.

a brand new cheap Nvidia can be got for less than $30 and that will do a lot
more than you could ever imagine than a mach64, you could even use the gpu
on those for video coding/decoding to take the heat off the cpu.

I would like to point out that nvidia isn’t the only solution. ATI cards will work perfectly fine as well.

I hate it when software says specifically intel or nvidia as a system requirement. That is bull and it feeds onto their evil monopoly (intel).

I realize my system is severely outdated… it is itanium 2 lol. Thank for the help.
