No bootup messages but Xorg finally comes up
My PC boots fine but no booting text messages are seen during startup or shutdown [blank screen] although eventually the GUI starts fine and asks for a passwd etc. How can I get the bootup messages back?
I built a nice 20 GB Ubuntu CE (Christian Edition) [it is based on Ubuntu 7.04] and got it all configured just the way I wanted then...........
Next day it wouldn't boot at all, tryed lots of things. Gave up.
Decided to see if I could make it work in a second machine so took the HD out of the orig Dell GX150 box and put in a different Dell box (this a GX260]. Of course some of the hardware is different so............
Xorg didn't work at first, looked garish huge letter etc. Did Ctrl-ALt-F2 and logged into a text screen ran sudo Xorg -configure to have Xorg try to configure for the new video hardware. Next I copied the newly generated xorg.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and rebooted fine (into the above described state). System uses Grub.
BTW, Sound , internet, is all good. What about the text messages?
Thanks in advance.
