X11 Problem In Ubuntu 6.10
I have a little problem when i start up ubuntu:
Every thing is normal untill after you see the loading bar with the ubuntu logo.
Then I get this error message:
Failed to start the X server (your graphical interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the X server output to diagnose the problem?
I then click yes, and from what shows up, the problem is:
Parse error on line 659 of section screen in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
"Modeline" is not a valid keyword in this section.
I have tried booting in safe mode, and i still cannot find a way to edit the xorg.conf file.
(No X server=No gedit=no: sudo cd /etc/X11, and gedit xorg.cong (to delete the Modeline cmd=I was messing around with it to get something to display correctly))
Any suggest a livecd that will be able to access my harddrive and be able to edit the xorg.conf file? (Damn small linux wont boot, for some reason)
