Hello Everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful day.


I just installed Oracle Linux 5.10 32 bit on a older windows pc that has 32 bit architecture. When I reboot it, it comes up and says "Failed to start the X Server (your graphical interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the X server output to diagnose the problem?


When ever it probes for the video card, its fails then reboots to this every time.


What do I need to do at this point?
