Re: [vox-tech] REPOSTING Radeon 9600 pro + red hat 9 + gnome

I forced the rpm cause i was following a "How to" and they said i should
force it if it didnt install on the first try.

I took a look at those directories you said:

in the /var/log i found some XFree86 logs (all of them seemed to be the same
for me but with diferent names. and they did not have "error" on their file
I dont know how  can i send them to you cause i use windows xp to send
emails. (sorry i am still learning linux)

in the /etc/X11 directory i have found the following:

       "           .backup

thx for helping me out
