X server failed to start
After changing a monitor, my fedora 10 desktop fail to start into gui screen, it loads the loading bars then the screen goes black, when i enter into the command line and typed in startx any error messages:
(EE) intel 0 No valid modes
(EE) screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration
no screen found
xinit: No such file or directory (errno2) unable to connect to X Server
xinit: No such process (errno3) server error
and i also try system-config-display --reconfig
and got an error couldn't start X server on card 0
error, failed to start X server.
How would fix or repair this.
Not sure, but maybe you must modify /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
I would try the following :
This will create a new xorg.conf file in your home folder.
try to start X with this file :
X -config /home/username/xorg.conf.new
If this works out, replace the xorg.conf in /etc/X11/ with the xorg.conf.new.
Thanks. Worked for me
I have been grappling with a similar problem for a long time.
The usual recommendation is to use system-config-display, but all I got was
I was unable to terminate this session. I had to go to another virtual console and kill X.
I replaced /etc/X11/xorg.conf as explained.
Then, as an unprivileged user, I invoked my usual incantantation for levitating my windows environment (olvwm) - and it worked!
i have the same problem i got a black vnc screen when starting it
but when using
i am using centos 5.7 x64 xen
same problem here..
Do I get into the terminal mode when the X server error comes up? I tried doing this but when I type "service kdm stop" I get the message "kdm: unrecognized service" and the rest of the command doesn't work (Xorg:1 command not found etc)
When I type the "nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf" I get a black screen with some buttons at the bottom
Again thank you for your help!
