Question X giving ambiguous errors on Kernel - 2.6.17 / X - 6.8.1


I've searched these errors for some time now finding nothing but posts inquiring about them with no responses. In short I have updated / recompiled my kernel. Tried importing a working version of xorg.conf from booting slax (which autogenerated a working version of xorg.conf).

I would just like any info on these errors and to what they might entail. I assume its something with my network settings but i have no clue where to start.

First here is the output from X failing:
***********************START X OUTPUT*************************

Ok perhaps this post is too lengthy. Perhaps I should just point out the main errors I dont understand.

_XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
_XSERVTransOpen: transport open failed for inet6/blackdeath:0
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for inet6

Now if inet6 is referring to IP address 6 perhaps thats an option in my kernel I enabled and shouldn't have because everyone is currently using IP4 correct?

And error number 2

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting

You're right on the first set of "errors", inet6 refers to IPv6 (as opposed to IPv4) and if you didn't compile it in your kernel, Xorg (which was compiled with IPv6 support) will complain a little.

Important to note that these errors are NOT showstoppers - consider them warnings, not errors.

As for the second "error", that's just letting you know that whatever app you were running inside xinit has failed, typically a window manager or session manager.

Again, this "error" is NOT an X showstopper, since X hasn't actually failed on you, the app that xinit was running has failed.

- Piete.

Edit:

I've just been experimenting with dumping out of X and running programs that segfault (I can't seem to write any other variety in C!), and of course, signal 11 is not a "X is fine" response.

I don't know what a Signal 11, but I would suspect that you need to recompile your binary drivers (ati / nvidia) against your new kernel, or change the driver (again, ati/nvidia) in your xorg.conf.

Clearly, however, your xorg.conf file shows you using the vesa driver. Curious. For diagnosis I think we need to look at the log file, /var/log/Xorg.0.conf - that is assuming you are actually having problems running something like startx?

I am indeed having much trouble running startx. It craps out and dumps the above errors. Now first off let me say thank god you responded, I am very thankful for your response.

Ok. First things first. While I was waiting for someone to respond I was digging around in my kernel looking for IPv6 options. I found none. Now on this issue, if it's not a showstopper, I could care less. It doesnt bother me that I dont have IPv6 support as I dont think it is yet widely used.

Secondly, I dont know what xinit is all about, I am very new to linux and basically just trying to get slack to work with fluxbox as my graphical interface (I got used to it and refuse to use anything else).

Now I will say this regarding driver issues. I DID have X working about a week ago using the vesa driver. A friend of mine who knows much more than me told me that it is a horrible driver and I should use Nvidia's driver (seeing as how I have an Asus N6800 I should probably use decent drivers). Well, he installed the Nvidia driver for me (I would need some hand holding to get through it) and low and behold X stopped loading and gave me these errors. I thought the nvidia driver perhaps klobbered some important X files so I re-installed X.

This didn't do it so I updated my Kernel and here you have me. Still with the same issues, but perhaps now you will be able to diagnose the problem better with more info.

Now that log file you requested, I will go grab it and post it. Again thank you so much for helping. X is a bear to figure out when you are new.

Attempting to use links and copy via CLI..

Edit:

Well it didnt work so I ported the text file over to windows and instead of newlines I get little boxes because of the differences in the way linux / windows treat new lines. Before I always just manually deleted the "boxes" and put new lines in myself.. well this file is too long to do that and its too late for me to try to write a program to convert them. Tomorrow I will post the file but I can already tell you what you will probably want to know. From what I saw the only error came from this line:

(--) PCI:*(1:0:0) nVidia Corporation unknown chipset (0x0041) rev 161, Mem @ 0xe8000000/24, 0xc0000000/29, 0xe9000000/24

Again sorry for the time lag but my eyes are more grainy than the sand at the beach. Tomorrow I will post more for you. Please dont give up on me.

Ahh, I saw your post count and ... anyway, let's take a look at some of these issues, in the order they appear!

(Kudos for getting a working kernel up and running so quickly! So many have problems with this! Edit: This has given me a suggestion for a solution - read down for more!)

Chapter 1: Of X and pkgtools

I would recommend reading this post from start to finish - it's not a walkthrough, per se, more a collection of thoughts. I type from the top-down AND bottom-up, so there is no guarentee of a sensible order to the ideas that arrive =)

Quote:
Now on this issue, if it's [IPv6 in X] not a showstopper, I could care less.
Correct, this doesn't matter and will not cause any problems with your setup.

Quote:
Secondly, I dont know what xinit is all about
The long & short of it all is that when you type, say, startx, you run a script (actually, startx IS the script ... ), and inside this script your X server gets set up and executed - the actual command (not script) for starting an X server is xinit - man xinit to learn more about it (useful to know if you have dual monitor setups and wanna play games on one monitor - http://www.kaear.co.uk/projectdisp.asp?ID=62 is my solution for this).

Anyway, this isn't important in solving your problem, it's just interesting background material =)

Quote:

This is promising! However ...

Quote:
Well, he [my knowledgable friend] installed the Nvidia driver for me ... and low and behold X stopped loading and gave me these errors.
Ughrn. We will need to go through a lot of stages, debugging Woodsman-stylee! I need to point out that I *cannot* give you precise instructions on how to go about many of these stages, simply because I don't know what you've done to your install since it was installed! I'll try to cover all of the options, but post back if I've missed something.

Step one is to get X back to a sensible-ish state to run from.
* Remove the X packages by: removepkg x11*
* Make sure the directories are actually clean from any of your X-related config files. Most importantly, the following should be deleted (or backed up, if you've editted them):

/etc/X11/xorg.conf
/usr/X11R6/bin/start
/home/<user>/.xinitrc

* Reinstall X ...: installpkg <cdrom or ISO location>/slackware/x/x11*.tgz
* ... and check for .new files: find / -name *.new #(there should be none of these, but just in case!)
* Now we rerun the slackware scripts to set up X - and cross our fingers: xorgconfig
* If all is well, you *SHOULD* be back in the same position you were before your friend installed the nvidia drivers.

This concludes this chapter. My next posts contain chapters two and three, respectively

Chapter 2: Undesirable results

While I could be mean and let you suffer, to expedite any future correspondence, here are some ideas regarding your other problems:

copy/paste with CLI: use GPM (you can enable it on startup, if it's not already enabled by `chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm` as root) - this lets you use a mouse in CLI. You can select the usual way, then to paste, middle click! It has a sort of "paste buffer" that whatever is selected is in the buffer.

UNIX newlines in windows: wordpad (NOT notepad!) should be able to open them up sensibly. My preference is just to use a decent text editor - try something like EditPlus ( http://www.editplus.com/ ) or, for that truely cross-platform feel, jedit ( http://www.jedit.org/ ). I don't recommend the latter on slower machines.

Chapter 3: If you want something done right ...

Back up in chapter 1 I mentioned I had a new idea regarding the kernel.

I need you to check a few things for me, and then we'll go from there.

* Are you running the kernel you compiled? The minimum steps to make a new kernel are: `make menuconfig && make && make modules_install && make install`. You should be able to verify the kernel you're running by uname -a

On my (one of many!) machine, `uname -a` dumps the following: Linux misato 2.6.14.6 #2 PREEMPT Mon Jul 31 11:35:56 BST 2006 x86_64 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

I know this is the kernel I compiled, 'cause it's got the date I did it =D

Check the date & the version of the kernel you *think* you compiled, and the kernel that's actually running.

* In the kernel config, DO NOT enable the nvidia driver in the framebuffer section (do you know what i mean? We can do chapter 4 if not, not a problem)

* You need to check that /etc/X11/xorg.conf contains the line: Driver "vesa" (as opposed to Driver "nvidia")

* So, assuming all that works, we need to check lsmod for anomalies (like, perhaps, some framebuffer device has taken over your graphics card instead of allowing the X driver access - as above)

* Fiiiiinally we should try reinstalling the nvidia driver, and changing Driver "vesa" to Driver "nvidia".

Grab the nvidia driver from: http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html (you want the Linux IA32 driver at the top). Download it, and then from console as root (so not in X) chmod +x the download, then run it. It's an interactive prompt and a really nice installer (nice in that it doesn't do anything unexpected and is no worse than the windows installers)

So, my guess is you now have far too much information, but I shouldn't need to reply for a little while yet Have a read, have a play, have another read and see what happens.

Good luck to you, and let us know how it goes!
- Piete.

This just means that it probed your nvidia card. Somewhere near the top of the log you will notice something like:

Code:
Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,
        (++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,
        (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
The only way to figure out what is wrong is to look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log. Maybe post the results from 'grep -n ^\(EE\) /var/log/Xorg.0.log' if the log is too large.

Alright before we start chapter 4 I must extend my gratitude to what you are doing for me. I'm very glad you took the time to help me thus far.

Sidenote: you need to tell me how I can put large amounts of text in those little scrolling boxes so my posts arent a mile long. On to the real show.

Chapter 3.5:

I had already re-installed X so that is done :check:

My output from uname -a was:
Linux blackdeath 2.6.17.13 #5 Wed Sep 20 19:51:59 CDT 2006 i686 unknown unknown GNU/Linux :check:

I DID have the nvidia checked in the framebuffer so I removed that, recompiled etc. (Now both of my monitors show output when booting up) Prior to this only my right monitor was showing output. :check:

My current xorg.conf file indeed is using "vesa" for the driver. :check:

And finally the contents of lsmod are as follows:
Module Size Used by
raw1394 22708 0
video1394 15060 0
ohci1394 27888 1 video1394
ieee1394 78644 3 raw1394,video1394,ohci1394
snd_intel8x0 25820 0
snd_ac97_codec 79904 1 snd_intel8x0
snd_ac97_bus 1856 1 snd_ac97_codec
8139too 19328 0

Now the only thing in this that I dont recognize is the last module entitled '8139too' but perhaps you will have some info on that. :uncheck?:

*********Additional thoughts / things I have tried************

Slax is a version of linux you can burn to a bootable cd. Using slax I can load, and boot into the cd's version of fluxbox, which works. However I even copied this exact xorg.conf file to my box and tried using it with no success.

I am curious if anything could be wrong with fluxbox since X must eventually load. (shot in the dark)

At this point I still am not getting X to run, It is still crapping out with the signal 11 business. In the following 2 posts I will post my current xorg.conf file and then the following will be my current Xorg.0.log file. Hopefully you will see something in one or the other that will put this problem to rest.

Again thank you for your time thus far and any other time you may put into solving this problem.

With regards to code scrolling, try wrapping the portion in [ code ] [ / code] tags, that should help.

Ok, on to the meat of the problem ...

Can't see anything wrong with the output of either the log or your xorg.conf. Now we need to try a different window manager and see what happens. Try xwmconfig and select something like KDE, Blackbox or XFCE. Next time you hit startx it should start whichever manager you selected. If you're *still* getting X problems after that, then I wonder if we've overlooked something as simple as an incomplete installation (ie: missing libraries from l/ ... ).

Or, now I look at the last line before X falls over:

Code:
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so
Comment out Load "glx" in xorg.conf ?

- Piete.

Edit: Experimenting with displaying [ code] as above.

Edit: About the odd module, that's a network card driver =)

It looks like X crashes right after loading glx... I think that the nvidia installer replaces the glx module. You may see that
/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so is a symlink to /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so.1.0.<version>.

What happens if you comment out the line 'Load "glx"' from the modules section of your xorg.conf file?

Edit: Jeez... I'm on a roll at being redundant.

Actually, yes, I think shotwellj has got it exactly right ... i've just checked my own extensions directory (dunno why i didn't think of this before!) and sure enough, libglx.so.1.0.<version> exists.

The answer, really, is to change Driver "vesa" to Driver "nvidia" in xorg.conf and reinstall the nvidia driver.

Redundancy is only a bad thing when it's spamming =)
