Slackware 12.0 default vesa xorg.conf - blank screen


Hello all, I've just installed Slackware 12.0 on my Toshiba 1805-s273. (Full install) I've been having problems with X as my xorg.conf settings (used in previous slackware versions) don't seem to work anymore. I've read a similar post to this and tried the solutions outlined within, but to no avail. What's confusing is that the Xorg log shows no errors. So I decided to try the vesa xorg.conf that is the default. I'm still getting blank screens. I don't even know where to start to try to troubleshoot this. So just to summarize, I'm using the default xorg.conf (VESA) that comes with Slack, no errors in the Xorg logs, and I'm getting blank screens (I have to cold shutdown to get back up). Where's the next place to look?... Thanks in advance for any help anyone could provide.

Oh, and one more thing (for what it's worth) i tried that mode 0666 for dri uncommented and commented with the same results.


Thanks again everyone.

One thing you can do is when it locks up is to hold CTRL+ALT then hit F1...see if this will let you see what's going with X...perhaps there is an error there that you're missing. You could also Ctrl-C it from here to end it. I would also wonder though if you've got some sort incorrect paramter in your xorg.conf file.

Please post here the output of lspci -v command (I don't find 1805-s23 model). Do you use framebuffer or vga = normal (/etc/lilo.conf)?

Sorry, the model is Toshiba Satellite 1805-s273. I use vga = normal in /etc/lilo.conf. What specific info did you need from lspci? I will try to post the output later. Thanks.

Read http://www.kurtwerks.com/linux/toshiba.html (see Section "Monitor"). It's for Toshiba Satellite 1805-S253. Maybe help you.

Thanks for the link, I tried the suggestions, but it still freezes. Any idea where I should be looking? As far as logs, etc. besides Xorg log?

If it is freezing I'd almost point the finger at something hardware related. Overheating, memory issues...

Well, I ruled out hardware problems because it works w/ old xorgs (old as in not modular x) from gentoo 2007.0 live cd and pclinuxos' latest offering as well. Does your Xorg logs end w/ the loading of a DDC module? As there are no errors in my Xorg log, maybe it's because the system locks before it can write out an error...

i just noticed that some of my old options in xorg.conf now kill my system... specifically:

Code:
#Option     "AGPFastWrite"  "true"      # [<bool>]
now locks my computer up. I found that the man radeon page has changed a bit to where they explicitly recommend against this option. It used to work fine in slack11

I don't know what card you have, but you might try a fresh xorgsetup to make a new xorg.conf, then (what I did)
Code:
 diff -u /etc/X11/xorg.conf myXorg.conf > somefile

I assume your using an intel i810 or i830 chipset as it is a bug in the x config that debian has patched but not slack yet, might take a look at xorg to see if they have a fix for u probaly

The card is a Trident Cyberblade card. In the past xorg has used the trident driver. Unfortunately there's not much (new) info using this card and the new xorg. I've read most of the articles that google's given me but, none of them cover the new modular xorg. What's got me stumped is that even the default xorg.conf that Pat provides doesn't even work and it's always worked for me, even in 11.0.

So far I've tried the "NoDDC" option, the "DPMS" option, the DRI mode 0666 option... with the same results. I'm going to re-install 11.0 and diff that xorg.conf w/ a 12.0 one... along the lines of what bioe007 suggested. In the mean time, if anyone can shed _any_ light or point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it. I appreciate everyone's help who has replied. Thank you.
