Problems with X server?
Morning fellow sparc
I have an Ultra 30
on which I have installed Debian via net install last month - no problems all
worked (except sound; parallel port but I knew of these
In a moment of
madness I installed Solaris 10 which was fine but not a great experience -
especially when I found that samba-client was not working and struggled to find
how to get it to work, (which is a PITA for me as all my personal files are on
an e-smith based file server).
Debian via net again but all was not well.
Install proceeded as
before and seemed OK.
Problem was logging
out of my KDE session - no X login prompt - black screen. All other consoles
were working and I could log in and 'startx' but not 'startkde'. According to
processes - no X was working.
Tried with Gnome
login - same problem
On the previous
install I had not had this problem - but did notice that on several occasions I
had working X login but no virtual consoles via Ctrl-Alt-Fx.
I tried deleting any
X related stuff in my /home - no cure.
scratch including formatting /home etc. - problem still
I should say that I
am not a linux expert by any means but I know that the entries I made on
this re-install have not altered from the first install which
Has anyone any
ideas? Has something been altered in the installed files?
Many thanks for
