Slackware 13.37 freeze on X start


Hello, i'm on Slackware for three years, but not very deep.
Hardware - Compaq615, video - radeon hd 3200
After clean installation of 13.37 x64, proprietary ati driver, multilib. xfce.

All was o.k., video rendering was direct etc., etc.
then i rebooted, and system freeze at startx. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace not working, hard reset needed. I tried xorgconfig, Xorg -configure, aticinfig --initial, deleting /etc/X11/xorg.conf with no result at all. /var/log/Xorg.0.log
empty. When i do startx from root - all is o.k, writing from root now.

What am i doing wrong? Thank you.

I have the same laptop, 13.37 is working both 32 and 64 bit, radeon and fglrx drivers, so I doubt it is a incompatibility with the hardware. I find it rather strange that you have an empty log-file. Is there anything suspicious in the logs when you startx as root?

The GLX error suggests something is wrong with your installation of fglrx. Can you show us the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file from your working X session as root?

Sorry, but that xorg.conf file is not the one being used when you start X. Not sure there's much guidance I can give... Perhaps check to see if you have an xorg.conf in a directory other than /etc/X11/ ? Or check under /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d for other config files.

This is from normal user logon. I've just waited longer, then pressed power button and system shutted down itself. Black screen, Ctrl-F1/F2/../Fn - no reaction, Ctrl Break - No reaction.

I see you're not passing "nomodeset" to the kernel. Have you blacklisted the radeon driver?

You should be able to control-c and can, hopefully, pastebin the new Xorg.0.log file.

Does 'xinit /usr/bin/xterm' work now, btw?

works fine.
I don't know is it connected or no - but in xfce main panel disappeared and i cannot even open it's settings from Settings menu. In root mode, i mean. In normal user mode X couldn't start.

So, by all appearances, X is working fine but you might have some issues specific to xfce4? The stand alone window managers slackware ships with (such as fluxbox) work fine?

Hello NiPh,

I had a similar issue once with my hd5470 adapter. Which version of the fglrx-installer did you install?
My experience was that the prior 11 versions did not work correctly when the X-server went down. I also had X crashes sometimes and now I'm using the radeon-module instead of fglrx.

It's quite a shaman stuff, but xinit started X from my user perfectly, now working from it.
startxfluxbox didn't work, it writes smth like 'coudn't connect to x server at :0:0'

Well I have no idea what silliness startfluxbox is doing. It's probably trying to start fluxbox, assuming X is already running. Try 'xinit /usr/bin/startfluxbox' or add 'exec startfluxbox' to your ~/.xinitrc file and then run 'startx'.
