Using GNOME2.X (default) and Fluxbox on ZorinOS4(upgraded from ubuntu10.10 to 11.04)
When I boot up everything goes fine right up until the splash screen. Once I get to that, Screen goes black for 3 seconds or so, Then the command line pops up, Asks me for LOGIN: and PASSWORD:, and after I enter that it starts fsck
then says something like:
/dev/sda5 mounted - sda5 mounted 22 times without check, Forcing check--
sda5 CLEAN Xnumberofblocks/Ynumberof blocks...
Error: cannot start Xserver
If needed I can reboot my machine and write the whole thing out and post it back.
sda5 shows it is filesystem, ext4, 25g ,mounted at /,Partition type Linux(0x83), partition flags: -
SO after it does a force check it brings me back to hevithan:$ ... I tried typing fluxbox
to run that instead of GNOME and it says Error: failed to launch. Xserver is running.
. So I reboot, and select: ubuntu-linux version(recovery mode). Look at the startup log it says what I already got in command: Failed to boot XServer is already running.
So I select Restart X and it works fine after that.
Things I have downloaded/installed recently:
*Used additional drivers
to enable propitiatory drivers.
*Simdock (Which I didn't like) so...
*A comic book reader (I forget the name but it was in the repos)
and a few upgrades to software/programs I already had.
So my questions are:
Why is X trying to start 2 times?
Why is it forcing FSCK every time?
Could anything I have downloaded changed my GRUB or Kernel info and confused the system?
is there anymore info needed?
Thanks for any help you guys can offer.
