Ubuntu not starting after installing Beryl | SOLVED

Main Question:
After installing Beryl on my newly installed Ubuntu 6.1 i got this screen, and it wont load any farther. What do i do ?

Extra info:

-I followed these instruction

-I'm using VMware 5 workstation on a windows machine with 2gb of ddr2 ram a RadeonX1950pro and an AMD Athlon 64 3800+ to. The virtual computer has 512mb of Ram and 10gb of HDD space.

-i installed Beryl on my first boot of this system if that matters.

Second question:
Before i installed Beryl i wanted to change the Screen Resolution to 1280 x 1024 but it didn't let me go up that high. How can i get it that high ?


I found the problem its vmware just for ppl that notice this same problem I'm gonna answer it here instead of just deleting the post:

Ubuntu does not boot anymore because the script that i used installs a lot of stuff including ATI drivers but the virtual machine does not know that its running on a ATI card it thinks its running on something called VMware SVGA II. All i had to do was follow the instructions on this page:
and it installed the drivers for me.

Second question answer: VMware only lets you go up that high.

Glad you found the solution, how about adding a SOLVED to the title?

Same problem, don't understand the solution :(

Hi, I am a newbie with the same problem as Mortiffer. I have a different setup but after I install beryl, Ubuntu stops booting and I get the same error as Mortiffer.

I also ran the same script as Mortiffer.

The problem appears to be identical.

I read the solution and I don't quite understand what to do. I already had VMTools installed before I installed beryl, is there something else to this I am missing?

I am running VMWare 6 for Vista Ultimate. My host machine is a 3.4 P4 Prescott with 1.5GB of RAM with a ATI 1600XT GT video card. The Guest Machine has 512MB of RAM and 8.0GB of HDD space.



beryl, ubuntu, vmware
