Unhappy X won't start: "Fatal server error: failed to initialize core devices" !


I've never used a Linux system before; now I'm experiencing dificulties installing Debian 3.0r0 using the 2.4 kernel. I intended to use the 2.4 kernel, because I have a Logitech USB-mouse (optical) and a SB Audigy soundcard. Since I read USB-support was better with the 2.4 kernel this seemed a logical choice.

However, when the X server is started the screen flickers a few times, after which it generates the following error-message:
"Fatal server error:
failed to initialize core devices"


I know very little about the Linux (yet ), therefore I'd like to ask someone to help me with this problem.

Below is the generated XFree86.0.log:

[code]
This is a pre-release version of XFree86, and is not supported in any
way. Bugs may be reported to XFree86@XFree86.Org and patches submitted

Comments:
  • I've already turned of the "kernel framebuffer" because that caused problems when I tried to run Debian 3.0 with the 2.2 kernel. The Xserver worked fine then, but nOt with kernel 2.4.
  • I was confused while installing using kernel 2.4, 'cause I was presented with a lot more optional modules except for the few in the "2.2 installation". I don't know exactly which modules I need. Maybe somewhere in the "module-selection"-section is the problem?? (I really don't know :P)

Tnx in advance-

Question "Nobody knows the troubles I've seen, nobody knows but.."

Does ANY1 know how to fix my problem?

(Maybe I should post my topic in another Forum ? )

Anybody? Or maybe a moderator?

I AM a NEWB you know...

From the log, the problem seem related to the mouse.

Check if you have this:

/dev/input/mice
/dev/gpmdata

Try to configure Xwindow again with another type of mouse (in your case you have selected a logitech ps/2?)

Also, if you are using gpm, stop it and see if this help.

Tnx

I'll try to post the config-file tomorrow (currently not working on my own machine)
Same goes for the gpmdata and mice links.. But tnx anyway!

As for now, this is my (additional)hardware-config:

- Radeon 64 DDR (one of the earlier models, so I guess no all-in-wonder)
- Iiyama Vision Master Pro 410HT
- Logitech Mouseman Optical (USB)
- SB Audigy (normal model)

I thought that only choosing gpm would enable the use of an USB-mouse, but is that so? .. What should I choose to enable USB-mouse support?
I believe I somewhere read about a certain config of gpm which when configged correctly "repeated" the mouse input so it could be used in the bash as well as in the desktop environments... Is that so? I'll try to look that up on debianhelp.org...

cya tomorrow

As far as I'm aware, gpm is only used in the text environment. If you're gonna be spending any time with no X running, then yeah, enable it. If, however, you're gonna be spending all your time in X (and I include virtual console sessions, such as Konsole, Eterm, Aterm, Xterm, etc, as being X), then I wouldn't run gpm... it can sometimes cause problems.

Okay, so if the only console-windows I would be actually working in would be the console-windows emulated by X (for example a 'bash' in Gnome); then enabling gpm would be useless? Well, in that case... I probably won't be needing it.

But your saying that using the command-line just after the startup (I don't know how this is called), without using 'startx', one can actually use the mouse If that's so, then w0w I must say I'm surprised..
Or did I misinterpret your remark?

Oh and, which mouse should I choose then in the install-menu? No gpm probably then, but which one is the Logitech Mouseman Optical USB? Does perhaps anybody use a similar mouse?

tnx again

Please check if you have support for usb devices in the kernel.

0_o I have found this in the Input Core Support section,
when you configure the kernel in version 2.4.18:

CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSEDEV:

Say Y here if you want your USB HID mouse (or ADB mouse handled by
the input layer) to be accessible as char devices 13:32+ -
/dev/input/mouseX and 13:63 - /dev/input/mice as an emulated ImPS/2
mouse. That way, all user space programs will be able to use your
mouse.

This is the same mouse protocol (ImPS/2) that is show in your logs,
so please check if you have this option compiled in the kernel.



I dont know if the configuration in Debian is the same, but
in my case, to select other mouse in Slackware 8.0, i use the program:

/usr/X11R6/bin/xf86config

the options are:

1. Microsoft compatible (2-button protocol)
2. Mouse Systems (3-button protocol)
3. Bus Mouse
4. PS/2 Mouse
5. Logitech Mouse (serial, old type, Logitech protocol)
6. Logitech MouseMan (Microsoft compatible)
7. MM Series
8. MM HitTablet
9. Microsoft IntelliMouse

So option 6 can be the correct.

Talking Back to w0rk!

I'm back from guiding firstyear university-students through the wild that is called Amsterdam-student-life. After that, I just had to visit the music festival "Lowlands".. PartY 0n!

Here are my (somewhat overdue ) findings after consulting your remarks:
[list=1][*]/dev/input/mice
This device is there in the input directory, but I can't 'cat' it or anything (how do I know it's working then?)
[*]/dev/gpmdata
I can't find this in the /dev directory
[*]/etc/X11/XF86Config-4
Here it comes:

Code:
### BEGIN DEBCONF SECTION
# XF86Config-4 (XFree86 server configuration file) generated by dexconf, the
# Debian X Configuration tool, using values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the XF86Config-4 manual page.
# (Type "man XF86Config-4" at the shell prompt.)
#
# If you want your changes to this file preserved by dexconf, only make changes
# before the "### BEGIN DEBCONF SECTION" line above, and/or after the
# "### END DEBCONF SECTION" line below.
#
# To change things within the debconf section, run the command:
#   dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
# as root.  Also see "How do I add custom sections to a dexconf-generated
# XF86Config or XF86Config-4 file?" in /usr/share/doc/xfree86-common/FAQ.gz.

Tnxs 4 your replies, although I did not quite understand zelgadis' remark about "char devices 13:32+ "...

Today, I had an enlightning conversation with a Linux-user in my study-soceity and he told me how to fix my mouse-/startx-problem.

Apparently, it was indeed the mouse that caused startx to fail; some of the required modules were not loaded.

This is how I fixed it:
[list=1][*]I 'modprobe'ed the following modules:
Code:
usb-uhci
Code:
hid
Code:
mousedev
[*]I added the names of the above modules to the list of modules in
Code:
/etc/modules
[*]A quick runthrough at the XF86Config-4:
Code:
'Configured Mouse'
              device:          /dev/input/mice
              protocol:       ImPS/2

              'Keyboard'
              XkbRules:         "xfree86"
              XkbModel:        "pc104"
              XkbLayout:       "us"
[*]Chanting some 0ccult mantr@s and performing ancient druid ceremonies.. lol[/list=1]

Well, after this and a short reboot ..the system started just fine!
Strangely enough I do not experience the weird "keyboard mistypes" (mentioned earlier) when in Gnome; my '|" just displays normally. Strange..

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Time for my next mission:
Quote:
To restore s0und.. with the creAtive s0undblaster Audigy! (oh.. and tiden' things a bit on the Gnome desktop: that footprint-thingy surely packs a lot of double links.. ;(
....and mount my Windows-partitions giving Linux acces to my MP3's, DivX's etc.

...and assign new functions to my logo keys on the kb..

..and optimize my kernel

.and..


.an..


a.


[color=orange red]Again; Thanks a lot for all your help! [/color]
