x server keeps restarting on ubuntu 6.10


Hi ,

I installed Beryl on my Ubuntu 6.10 edgy. During the installation they asked me to make some changes on the x server xorg.conf and I made them. After the restart I cannot use graphical login. If I type a username and password at graphical login screen,it looks like starting, but doesn't start and restarts the x server. Evenafter converting the xorg.conf to previous state I cannot start my KDE. I can use all the terminals. What could be the problem ?

What were these changes?
What Session Manager do you use? KDM, GDM, XDM?

How do you launch them then? By using another WM or by typing startx?

Changes

I made all the changes that were listed here.

http://wiki.beryl-project.org/wiki/I...dgy_with_AIGLX


Session manager = KDM

I just used the normal startup of ubuntu which shows the graphical login screen (which comes automatically when I boot). I just said I can work in terminals
(Ctrl+Alt+F1) or (Ctrl+Alt+F2) ,etc.

What card do you have?

from the console (ctrl-alt-f1), stop kdm, start Xwindow and check the logs:
# /etc/init.d/kdm start
$ xinit /usr/bin/xterm -- :0
# tail /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Firstoff, I'd tried to install Beryl, too, and it didn't work with my graphics card.

Although the how-to you've mentioned does not contain the step backing up xorg.conf before editing it (d'uh!), gedit produce a backup file called xorg.conf~.
