Post XServer_XFree86 failure after distro upgrade...


Hi guys,

Recently I have upgraded my distro from Woody to Sarge.

The process executed was: apt-get upgrade ; apt-get dist upgrade

After all that miticulous process finished, I also upgraded the GDM and GNOME.

Now after all that completed, I rebooted and I can't get the screen to work. It shows that is loading the X Window but then, it just goes like it is in "sleep mode" - (if u know what I mean).

I go to the console and everything is fine, I log in as user and root. So the problem, DEFINITELY, is the X Window.

I have here a few log messages that I am sure will make more sense to you guys (the gurus) than myself (rookie).

Because of the size of the 'XFree86' file, I had to remove a few sections so this thread could be posted.

I would really appreciate any info or ideas on how to go about this problem.

Thanks a lot"!

I had the same problem after installing a 2.6 kernel on testing and didnt find a solution. Try using a 2.4 kernel temporary .

It is failing on the mouse opening so my question is do you actually have a serial mouse connected to the machine? If not then your config file is not setup properly can we see the /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file you are using.

"The process executed was: apt-get upgrade ; apt-get dist upgrade"

Wrong.

after changing the sources.list to the version you want:

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

For problems with kernel 2.6.x
http://www.linuks.mine.nu/debian-faq-wiki/

see sections 2.6 and 2.7

Newbies should stay away from kernel 2.6.x, unless they are willing to do the required reading, Linux is not a bag of tricks.

This file does not match the output of the log file you posted in this section here if you were using the nvidia driver the Load "dri" & Load "GLcore"
options should never be there it will prevent the Xserver from starting. Did you allow X when upgraded
to replace you old config file with a newly generated one because this is what looks like happened.

EndSection
Now here when I have seen X put that "Generic Mouse" entry in my files it has caused X to fail on me.
You may want to comment/remove this both in this section and the Server Layout section at the bottom of the file.

Quote:
Section "Device"
Identifier "Generic Video Card"
Driver "vesa"
Option "UseFBDev" "true"
EndSection
Now here you are using the vesa framebuffer which again makes no sense from the log file you posted. If you have laready
complied the nvidia for the kernel you are running the you should change the Driver to use it and comment out/remove
the Option "UseFBDev" "true" line.

Quote:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
HorizSync 30-54
VertRefresh 50-85
Option "DPMS"
EndSection

Now here according to the log file you posted even though it is giving a warning it is saying that it used.

Code:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Monitor0: Using default hsync range of 30.00-70.00kHz
 (WW) NVIDIA(0): Monitor0: using default vrefresh range of 50.00-160.00Hz
So if those are the actual refresh rates for your monitor you can use them with any driver and should put them in the file.

Here you should be able to use a DefaultDepth of 24 your Geforce 4 should have more than enough memory on it for true colour at this resolution.

Thanks again....
Again you may want to comment out/remove the "Generic Mouse".




So a couple of questions in order to be able to craft a working config file if you cannot with the information I have provided. What is the make/model of the monitor
or are the refresh rates listed in the log file correct? Do you have a PS/2 mouse conneted? And is the nvidia driver already compiled for the kerenel you are running?

Hi,...You have no idea how much your helkp and time means to me. I just hope I can re-pay you someday......

Yes, you are indeed right. When upgraded, the system asked me if I wanted to replace the XServer.config file.

I also have the module for the NVidia graphics card compiled, the only thing is that, because I was fidling with the configuration prog, I chose various ones to see if it would work.

My monitor make is a Samsung (...I think......gosh can't even remember the damn make........) 17" inch.

Both mouse and keyboard are cordless usb, but I use them via PS/2 port with an adaptor. However, it never gave any trouble whatsoever before upgrading the distro.

What then would be the steps to follow? The ones you explained earlier are the ones to get it to work? Would that be enough or is there another set of steps to follow?

Thank you so much again,........

Well you could use dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86 and put the correct settings in when asked the questions.
You would use nv for the driver temporarily then you can edit the file later for nvidia when you get to the monitor refresh rates
use the 30-70 and 50-160 and you should have a working config. Or you can give this a try I think I have enough information from you to
get it right, the only parts I am worried about are the refresh rates if these are the proper ones it should work and the mouse you do not mention if it is a wheel mouse if it is not then change the Protocol to PS/2 from the ImPS/2. You would mv /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.original to get the old file out of the way then copy this to a new /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and restart the X server.

Excellent"! I shall give that a try,.......

Another thing,..........I also upgraded the Kernel to 2.6.4. Now as my luck does not permit me enjoy the happiness of having things running smoothly, I cannot load modules into the kernel (such as the sound driver or the USB-Mass Storage device driver) and I get an error that says: " QM_Modules not implemented " - Right then,...what the hell does that mean?

Thanks.........

Looks like there is something going on with module-init-tools so what version did you end up with after the upgrade from Woody if you still have it installed then you need to upgrade it to the version in Sarge here is what I have installed.

Code:
[HappyTux:/home/stephen]# apt-cache policy module-init-tools
module-init-tools:
  Installed: 3.1-pre5-1
  Candidate: 3.1-pre5-1
  Version Table:
     3.1-pre5-3 0
        600 http://ftp.de.debian.org unstable/main Packages
 *** 3.1-pre5-1 0
        990 http://ftp.de.debian.org testing/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
For the USB the module names have changed changed in the 2.6 kernels I'm not sure about all of them but the main controller module is uhci-hcd. For your sound you need to install alsa-utils and alsa-base then run alsaconf to have the sound setup for ALSA which is used in the 2.6 kernels.

Oh and you need to put this in your /etc/fstab and as root mkdir /sys to mount at boot the sysfs file system that is needed.

Code:
## Needed for kernel 2.6
none            /sys            sysfs   defaults                0       0
BTW did you install this kernel from the Debian archives the module-init-tools should have been automatically upgraded and you may want to upgrade again the version less than 2.7 have some security problems IIRC.

X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.6

According to what you posted at the beginning, you are using a kernel 2.6. What gives?

I will show you how to read the file properly again at the start he was using the 2.4.26 then switched to 2.6.

Code:
 Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.4 i686 [ELF]   <<<--- The system X was built on.    
 
 
 OS Kernel: Linux version 2.4.26 (root@server)     <<<--- Operating kernel running at time of log.

i'm not sure if you were able to resolve your problem (too much to read), but if you upgrade the kernel, you need to recompile the nvidia driver. just do

Code:
su -c "nvidia-installer --update"

hehe, either way my assesment was correct then, the problem is bad configuration for lack of knowledge and laziness in following the instructions correctly in the article, either 2.4 or 2.6.

Oh well.... good luck!
