Xserver crashing on startup after running magic

Post by Zeto3987 » Fri Dec 12, 2003 4:13 pm

I installed Gentoox Home V3 using the ftp install method and everything was working fine. Then I ran magic for the first time and it compiled everything and then restarted. After that it asked me some questions because it installed a new kernel and I answered them but when it tried to start X it gave me this read out:

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

P.S. I do have the log file if anyone needs it.

Try deleting your XF86Config and download it again

Code: Select all

rm -rf /etc/X11/XF86Config
cd /etc/X11
wget http://gentoox.shallax.com/patch-files/XF86Config


Failing that you could try reinstalling Xfree by running
magic fix xfree && magic
If you keep an open mind, will your brain fall out?

Ok, hahah yes sorry about that, this is because I changed the xbvset patch to "displaytools". "magic fix displaytools && magic" should fix this. Actually, this is why it says "YOU MUST RUN XBVSET BEFORE REBOOTING" in big red letters - this will fix the problem, just run "xbvset".

downloading the xfree config means you wont have scrollwheel mouse support, only running xbvset will give you this ;P
