Problem after latest magic update on Xorg

Post by kopibean » Mon Jan 31, 2005 3:35 am

Hi, I have ran magic yesterday to update the Xorg and now my xbox is behaving strangely. After magic completed compiling the xorg, it prompted the Xbvset to configure the screen setting which I gladly do so. However after the reboot, my xbox now only display the xvkbd virtual keyboard with the background totally black (no menu bar, icon,etc). I couldn't launch any terminal or any application from it now. I have putty in to the xbox and type "startx" which say the x server is running on display 0.

Anyone can help!! Thanks.

Do you get the GDM login screen?

No, I do not get the GDM login screen. The screen currently only display a black background with the virtual keyboard as the only visible window.

Previously while running xfree, I have configured (from the xfree setup icon) to autologin to my xbox on booting up. Is the problem due to auto-login ? anyway that I can rectify it? Thakns.

when you ran magic, what did you enter for all the options like
XServer, kde, Xfree, mplayer, Xkvbd

I have pro and during the Xorg update, I only installed XServer. So now I get a gentoox login with the keyboard and then once I login I get a black screen with the keyboard. which is fine with me cause I dont want to slow my xbox down :)

Hi, I did not get the option that you have mentioned. The only option that was prompted was xbvset to configure the screen resolution.

I am running Home 3.1 edition though. Any idea what may be the problem?

maybe.... just fix xfree if thats the windows manager ur using ..

magic fix xfree && magic

I havent done this, so you may need to search the forums on this one. The xfree could be Xfree (with a capital x) not so sure..

hope it helps,

Hi, I have tried "magix fix xfree && magic" in either Captial or lower case, but both doesnt work. I have browse through the gentoo portege catalog but couldnt find xfree portage there. Seem like it is no longer supported.

Is there any other way I can get back the original xbox setting and re-run the magic again?

Hi,

yes gentoo stopped support for XFree. But shallax still supports it as its preinstalled inside gentoox.

Actually this is an uninstall option.. "magic fix xfree"

If this doesnt work, just try running magic again.

Hi, I have tried the following command few times:

magic fix xfree && magic <- this doesnt work at all

magix fix kde && magic <- this tried to compile kde but it failed half way thru

magix fix xfce && magic <- this prompt u whether to update kde and xfce and I choose only update xfce. It tried to update xfce but it failed pretty quickly

after which when you tried to magic fix kde or magic fix xfce

Now my xbox is almost 'screwed', with the windows manager 'semi' kde. ie. It boot up with the dark grey screen kde style backaground, with virtual keyboard and nothing else.

Any expert care to lend a support to restore it to my original gentoox condition??? thanks a million

Hi, my xbox is still not working after several hours of compiling kde.

Here's the erorr msg when I tried to magic and install kde.

To follow up on my previous posting, when I tried to magic with xfce alone, this is the error msg that I received.

If this is not correct, press Ctrl-C within the next 5 seconds

After answering all questions this installer should be automated
so you can leave your xbox and come back to it once its finished!
