I have not used "Dreamlinux4.0" .So i do not know the ins and outs of it
It is possible that when you added gnome you might have broken something .
However it is more likely that something is just not set up correctly .
Was there a "how to" that you fallowed ?
There was no how to guide, but Iǘe used Dreamlinux 3.1 and I was recently using Dreamlinux 3.5, and I intend to switch back to 3.5 in an hour or so after I back all my new data up. Dreamlinux 4.0 is still in beta, has been for a long time and I think I now understand why. Not only is there a problem with the cds/dvd mounting, but there was a separate problem with Openoffice 3.2 (installed the same way as on 3.5) not being usable after rebooting. And NOW I find I canīt get x to start for DL-4.0!
I tried everything. From rescue mode, I installed xserver-xorg-video-nouveau and even the core, which were never uninstalled! I just upgraded the nouveau driver. The screen said nouveau driver was no longer there, and that is why it could not startx. I donīt know what the deal is there, but I wish I had waited. If I could have upgraded 3.5 successfully I would have.
If it wasnīt for having Ubuntu on a dual boot system I would be completely screwed. I can access the other partitions from there and backup my files to my separate Media drive.
Thank you very much for trying to help. I guess I will have to wait till DL-4.0 is past the testing phase. Or find instructions for upgrading DL/debian without breaking it.
