Hi all - I have an
issue and I'm hoping someone knows the answer...
11.04 + xinit + new motherboad & cpu = problem
I have had X working
on my Ubuntu Server for quite a while previously, however I had to update the
motherboard & cpu and that are slightly newer and now I have an
On the old system I
ran "xinit" and on exit it dropped back to the command line
Now that the system
has been updated, "xinit" still runs fine, but when I exit, the display goes
blank and the console does not show... About all I can
do is to SSH in and reboot the server.
Only thing I see of note through SSH from another PC on the LAN is "ps -A"
before start xinit has "tty1 ... getty" and after exiting has "tty1 ... login"
and "tty1 ... bash". If I "sudo pkill login" I get back to "tty1 ... getty" but
the screen is still blank!
As an experiment I
tried to relaunch "xinit" from the blank screen [typing blind] and via SSH "ps
-A" I saw "tty1 ... xinit", etc, so it seems that the console was active, but
the display was somehow still incorrectly set. Unfortunately, even
though I'd re-started xinit, the screen remained blank - display mode seems
to have somehow stuck in limbo???
Would be great to
hear from anyone with ideas - Guessing something around the graphics mode that
remains after X closes or the console resolution?!
