Xorg Problems - Via Chip with OpenChrome - After Update via Synaptic
After I've gone well with Debian Lenny on my Desktop Computer,
I decided to use it on my notebook, too.
It had run well for a few days, but after I updated via Synaptic I wasn't able to start the X anymore. (I'm not Sure but I think there was also an update (or more) for Xorg or XServer-Xorg or any of it's parts, but I dont know exactly.)
I'm not sure if this is the right subsection, if not I'm sorry.
System: Medion MD96389
Core: Intel Pentium Dual-Core Prozessor T0280
Grafik-Card: VIA Chrome9 HC
Screen: 15,4" TFT WXGA (Resolution: 1280x800)
OS: Debian-Lenny, installed via http://goodbye-microsoft.com/
Grafik-Driver: Openchrome, build the way:
When I logged in then, I get this error:
The second search for the error "no such process" hasn't been succesful, too. I just found some topics like "doesn't work when logged in as root, which isn't my case, nothing works, root, user acc.
I may should add:
I already tried this:
1. Backuped the Xorg.conf file and then reset it to default and config it again.
2. Removed all Xorg packages via aptitude remove xorg Xorg-Xserver and all others of X and then reinstalled them, reinstalled openchrome then 1. again
Tried to run startx with vesa, via, openchrome
And now my idees have come to an end.
I dont know very mutch about X or Linux. I know enought to deal with small problems but this seems to be a little bit more complex.
If your sources.list is correct, you don't have debian, you have ubuntu. If you have debian, there's binary packages in the repository that you could try. One is called 'xserver-xorg-video-openchrome'. I don't know much about it, and I don't know if it exists in ubuntu. In debian I think it only exists in lenny. You should probably go to an ubuntu forum. If on the other hand you wanted to install debian from scratch, I think there's a sticky on this site for doing exactly that. There's no way I know to change an already installed system from ubuntu to debian. Trying this would be very bad. I hope this helps. :)
I've Debian. I needed this sources to compile the openchrome driver. This FAQ I used is for Debian and Ubuntu and I found it in a Debian forum, since Ubuntu is based on Debian.
Also it worked.
And I dont need a guide for a debian install. I got it running on my Desktop PC and my Laptop, and the package you're proposing doesn't work.
I've read some books and other information about debian, so I got it running // got no problems on my pc, I only got a Problem with the via-chipset and the openchrome drivers...
Also: I know which OS I've.
No one knows anything?
Ok, then I'll make a new install.
