Re: StartX problem
Thank You for your responses. I have work around what you all have said ::
USING $ startx $(which xterm) -- :6 , I am getting the blank screen as said and using ctrl alt backspace i am able to return back to the command prompt.
Here is the output of 'lspci' attached with the email.
Note :: I am getting vertical strips when default system boots or when i try to start graphical interface...in any case it shows vertical strips.but it wont go ahead of that and stucks there itself without prompting for login screen.
1) Do you, or do you not have gdm installed?
Yes, i do have gdm and xdm installed.
2)Is gdm trying to start and then failing? YES
3) Are you then trying to run "startx"? After getting failure from gdm...i am killing all the processes related to gdm and then trying to start using startx.
4) Are you doing so as a normal user or as root (I believe root will fail on "startx" by default)? I have also tried to start using normal user but invain.
5)Are you getting any error messages that are not part of the log files you've included? No.. I am not getting any error message.
6)Have you tried the "vga" driver in XF86Config-4 instead of "vesa", or have you tried dropping the DefaultDepth from 24 to 16?
I have tried all the way.
I have tried with kernel version 2.6.8 default which is coming with debain-3.1r1 sarge. Again waiting for your responses..
Have a Nice time and Good day ahead..
