No Screens?!


Ok. I am new to linux and am trying PHLAK. I just burned the image to a CD and started my comp in phlak. I come to a screen and waited for about 5 secs. and it starts to load. once its about eight tenths done it comes to a screen with a bunch of random text and then it says some error like. " Skipping /usr/X11r6/lib/modules/extensions/lib...(there more but i forget it)

(EE) R128(0): virtual hight (0) is too small for the hardware (min 128)

(EE) Screens found, but none are usable...
(skip some ligns)

Fatal server error:
no screens found

When reporting a problem bla bla bla

Could you please help me? THANKS!

This seems to be a problem with the /etc/X11/XFree86Config-4 or /etc/X11/xorg.conf (whichever it uses) not settings the display adapter properly. Is this installed, or a Live CD?

It's a live CD. I'm just trying it out becvause I don't wanna partision(SP?) my disk for no reason. I've tried knopix and it was too slow. I've heard that phlak is much faster.

What you must realise with Live CD's is everything is decompressed on the fly -- they're gonna be slow. Did you check the file(s) I referenced? Are you even able to boot to a command line (never used Phlak and don't know if it presents this option)?

I don't know if this counts as a command line but before it starts to boot into phlak you can type stuff it that will make it boot in diff ways (if you type "desktop=sneaky" it boots in a windows like skin) but befor it actualy gets to the desktop, (about 8/10 ways through loading) it goes into TONS of text and says there is an error. Could i check the actual disk in windows to see if theres a problem?

how would i check those files you said?
