Ubuntu: "There already appears to be an X server running on display :0."


Whenever Ubunbtu attempts to launch XServer i get this error:

"There already appears to be an X server running on display :0."

And it asks if it sould try restarting X or sugesting using a different console. If I tell it to restart, same error. What happeWhenever Ubunbtu attempts to launch XServer i get this error:

"There already appears to be an X server running on display :0."

And it asks if it sould try restarting X or sugesting using a different console. If I tell it to restart, same error. What happens is that a black X comes in the middle of the screen, and when I move the mouse it dies and I get the error.

I found a user with a similar error, except his was on a new install and was fixed by installing GDM. I have been running Ubuntu for a few days (after a clean install) when I got this error.

Before the error I has installed mail-notification, firefox-1.0 (from the Hoary reps, I changed back the sources list after), mozilla-mplayer, and the video codecs. MPlayer didnt work (I'm using a celeron processor) and xine died when I tried to view a quicktime movie in firefox. That about what I was doing the day and night before i started having the XServer problem.

I am able to kill the X server process and startx manually and it works ok, but returns me to the console on log-out from Gnome.

I have tried purging my recent installs. I have also re-installed gdm. Nothing has worked so far.

I have posted my XFree86 logs after this post.

Thanks for the help.

Thumbs up Upgraded GDM and Xserver

I fixed the problem by installing xserver-xorg, gdm and their dependencies from hoary.

Most people should use warty backports when possible. If using hoary is necessary, one should try pinning it.
