Slack box hangs at X login


For some reason, my slack box don't finish booting.
Code:
Loading ALSA kernel modules.
Loading ALSA mixer settings: /usr/sbin/alsactl restor
Loading OSS compatibility modules for ALSA.
Starting gpm: usr/sbin/gpm -m /dev/mouse -t ps2
gpm: oops() invoked from gpm.c(977)
/dev/mouse: Device or resource busy
Starting up X11 session manager...
After that, it clicks a few times, and comes back to this, with nothing. It just sits there.

I'm going to assume it is. You cannot run Mac OSX applications in linux. Period.

To help with your problem.

It looks like you set slack to boot into init 4 by default, but did not properly configure X11. Also, GPM is not starting up. To remedy this, boot into single user mode. (At lilo, pick your kernel and then type "single" after the kernel option)

Then from there login as "root"

then type

cd /etc/rc.d
chmod -x rc.gpm

then type xorgconfig and answer all the questions about your graphics hardware.

I belive i configured it right, seeming I was using it yesterday, then I got all my sound stuff configured.

I'll try the chmod stuff, hope that works.

Also, how do i pass a kernal option?
Code:
linux -single
?

When you are at lilo, just type the name of the kernel and then single

For example i would type

"Slackware2.6 single"

I believe at default you would just tyep "Linux single".

well, the monitor just keeps clicking still.

I'm going back into single, logging in as the normal me, and just going to run startx from there.

The monitor clicking is a sign of a bad /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and then say what Videocard, monitor, and if your Mouse is PS/2 or USB. Also, are there any other errors if you wait about 20 seconds after the screen starts clicking?

Xfce alerted me that (none) will make it not work properly, used as a host.

Well, I'm currently trying to go around in firefox, and it can't find no servers.

And here's the error...

Code:
XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processes) with 0 events remaining.
Thats what it's told me after commanding startx.

As I take a look at the log, i get
Code:
(WW) No core pointer registered
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Keyboard1" (type: KEYBOARD)
No core pointer

Fatal server error:
failed to initialize core devices

I just thought of something.

The day before this thing started acting up, i removed the PCMIA drivers.

Wich, in turn could cause the mouse to not work if plugged in, causing this.

Okay, how do I install?

1. change the /etc/inittab so it boots to the console until you get x working.

2. run mouseconfig as root and get your mouse working. is it a touchpad? usb mouse?

3. run xorgsetup and check /etc/X11/xorg.conf afterwards to make sure everything is right.

4. test x

5. change /etc/inittab back to what you had

Well, I tried, and slackware is still telling me that the mouse resource is busy. I just don't get it.

Another thing that I've just remembered is that this always seems to happen after I get my soundcard working. I get it working, get done with it, shut her down. Then the next morning I want to get on it, can't because of this.

IT REALLY GETS ANNOYING. I hate the fact that it's like I have a choice, will I take sound or graphics.

MORE EDIT: It's also a PS2 mouse.

FIXED: I fixed it by editing /etc/rc.d/rc.M so that the mouse goes first before ALSA. Seeming ALSA wants to mandate, and everything still works.
