xubuntu live works, install has no x
This is weird, i'm trying to install xubuntu 6.06 to a second pc. It's a somewhat older 500mhz celeron.
I checked the md5sum of the burnt cd.
When booting from the cd, x starts normally and works in the live cd and i am able to get into the gui.
When installing from the live-cd, the version installed to the harddisk is not able to start x.
First it gives an error while booting:
ACPI: Unable to locate RSDP
It continues booting and then is not able to start x
EE /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libxaa.so is an unrecognized module type
EE SAVAGE: failed to load module "xaa" (unknown module type, 6)
EE Screens(s) found, but none has a usable configuration
Hmmm, how can i solve this?
I tried to reconfigure x.org:
Could i use the setup from the live cd (which can start x) to setup x.org on the harddisk?
Or is that mumbo-jumbo? Any other ideas? thanks!
Try checking /var/log/Xorg.log maybe itll give you more of a clue why it doesnt like your configuration.
I checked your hint, thanks! (it is actually /var/log/Xorg.0.log , I think).
What I did:
Then I tried all the extra boot options i could come up with to disable acpi:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.15-23-386 root=/dev/hda1 ro quiet acpi=noacpi splash
noacpi, pci=noacpi, acpi=off
But still no x server.
Afterwards i did a complete reinstall (couple times actually) and it gave me the following error, for which i filed a bug report:
The cd checkes out, also the medium check from the first bootup menu says something like all checksums are ok.
I did have (an earlier) ubuntu installed to that machine before with another windowmanager.
If all else fails i'll try another distro for it.
/edit: installed xubuntu 6.06 to another celeron 733 MHz and this one runs like a charm :D
