Debian Installation :: Boot - Apt-get Install Xorg Doesn't Work

Mar 25, 2010

I recently installed debian on my ibook G4, but when I start up the computer, it doesn't boot into Xorg. When I tried to start Xorg, it says that it is not installed. How would I install it, and how would I start it? When I do the apt-get install xorg, it doesn't work. Right now I'm running ubuntu on it, but I really want just plain debian, as I really dont need all of the bells and whistles that Ubuntu offers. I just need something to do schoolwork on (I'm a highschool sophmore), and I don't want to use OS X for that as I like linux better (specifically debian and ubuntu).

Debian Hardware :: Blank Screen At Boot Up After Xorg Install?

Nov 19, 2010

I just recently got a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop and have installed Debian on it. When I installed it, I did not install the 'Graphical desktop' packages...only the 'Standard system utilities'Everything has been fine, however when I installed Xorg (aptitude install xorg) and restarted my computer, my screen goes blank at bootup. I can see the grub menu, as well as the beginning bootup process, up until udev begins to load. I have a feeling it has something to do with KMS now being loaded but am not sure.

Fedora Hardware :: Prevent Fglrx Conflicting With Xorg But It Doesn't Seem To Work

Aug 4, 2011

I've been using Fedora 15 LXDE for a few weeks (its been great), and decided to install the ati proprietary drivers (I used the tutorial in one of the general strickies). As soon as I rebooted, I now get the following message:

Started SYSV: Late init script for live image... ATI external events daemon. into universal adresses I can type stuff using the cursor, but it doesn't do anything. I've tried adding 'runlevel 3' to the boot options in Grub to try and prevent fglrx conflicting with Xorg but it doesn't seem to work, unless I'm doing something wrong.

Ubuntu Installation :: Keyboard Doesn't Work After Boot ?

Apr 29, 2011

I have been working on this problem for a year now. It is becoming critical because I need to upgrade Linux. I really want Ubuntu.

Keyboard works fine at power on. I can edit BIOS options. I put in the CD or DVD, it starts fine. Keyboard works for selecting boot options. Once the installation begins however, no more keyboard...

This is true across every version and distribution of Linux I have come across- I have dozens of liveCDs -EXCEPT Linux Mint 8.

Laptop = Acer 5517

Running Linux Mint 8 & Windows 7

I have no USB Legacy Emulation BIOS option

I've tried this: [url]

Is it possible to import an xorg.conf file from Debian to Fedora and have it work? The reason for this is that I have an older monitor that only offers 800x600 as the maximum resolution.

Debian :: Installation Doesn't Work

Jun 2, 2010

I'm trying to install Debian 5.0x to my miniITX computer.


I had this setup running in a previous configuration. The only difference were the disks. I had a 120GB and a 1TB (/home). Because I need more space I swapped both disks for 2 x 2TB.

I tried a 64bit Debian 5.xx stable install. Everything goes fine until the first boot. After the POST and BIOS screen a cursor justs blinks and the computer does nothing. the computer doesn't start GRUB

Well I thought maybe a small error with downloading the DVD so I tried another debian but Testing now. There the setup hangs when it wants to make the file-systems. It says something like can't make ext4 filesystem. I also tried with ext3. So I manually tried to do fdisk and mkfs.ext4 (and mkfs.ext3) for both disks in the console during installation. fdisk works but when I try mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1 it says that some bin-file is missing? How's that possible on an installation disc? Never ever had that before?

Well after 15 attempts (meanwhile lost 2kg of fingernails)I tried another 32 bit DVD install of Debian 5.xx. It can make the filesystems again and install everything but when it has to boot for the first time it just doesn't. I don't even see GRUB.

Seems to me that the computer doesn't refer to the HD to boot. In the BIOS the BOOT order is just fine (the previous config with the old HD's just worked fine). Even when I put in the install DVD it skips the HD and boots from the DVD?

I really don't get it. The disks are both shown in the BIOS. Is this a hardware or software issue? I think that Linux or GRUB should be able to work with 2TB discs isn't it?

Debian :: Aptitude Doesn't Work After Installation

Feb 26, 2010

get a GUI working after installing Debian. Now, I have another set of problems so I decided to create a new thread. the first thing going wrong is that when I type aptitude update I get the following output:


I want to download the driver for mi wireless, get openoffice and a bunch of other things, but with this not working, I'm guessing there's not much I can do now... I have the driver of the wireless, which I downloaded before the installation of Debian, and that I now copied to my new Debian desktop, but I cannot open it... it is a tar.gz file. I'm currently connected through wired connection by the way.

Debian Hardware :: Keyboard Doesn't Work After Installation

Jul 5, 2011

I just installed Debian Testing (with Xfce) along side Win7 on my Dell XPS M1530 and now neither my keyboard nor my USB-mouse work at the login screen. Both worked perfectly during the installation and Grub as well recognizes my keyboard. The Numlock-LED can be switched on and off during the boot, but fails to work at the login screen.

Fedora Installation :: Grub Boot Loader Doesn't Work For Core 12 And WinXP?

Jun 7, 2010

I have an HP Pavilion m7480n PC with Windows XP installed on the C-drive. I successfully installed FC 12 onto the spare USB drive. When I rebooted the PC all I got was a blinking underscore at the extreme upper left position of a totally black screen. After a bit of experimenting I found that if I hit the F1 key during the boot process, go into the BIOS setup, do nothing within the setup, and press ESC to get out of the setup then the PC will go back into the boot cycle a second time. During the second time however a small text message appears with words to the effect "Press any key to enter GRUB..." after which the GRUB splash screen comes up with the choice for FC 12 or "Other" (referring to Win XP). At that point I can boot into either one.

Debian Installation :: 5.0.3 'Lenny Missing Drivers \ Doesn't Work At All?

Feb 27, 2010

In reply to my last question about Wireless incompatibility in Debian 5.0.3 'Lenny', I found out it was because of missing drivers that I chose to ignore, despite the notifications.Now I've got this problem again, this time with different hardware and a different distribution of Debian (Debian Testing 'Squeeze' i386). As well as asking me to load up ipw2100-1.3.fw (of which I already have), it asks me to load tigon/tg3_tso5.bin. Loading the firmware is no problem. Finding and downloading nthe firmware is the problem here.I've searched through packacges and bug reports for a dowload link, but I've only come across a bundle with the driver I need, as well as a few unneeded extras. IT doesn't work at all.

Debian Multimedia :: Xorg Won't Work On An Old Laptop?

Apr 3, 2010

I've installed squeeze (kernel 2.6.32-3-686 now) on an old Amilo M-6100 laptop with a Silicon Motion graphic chip. I've installed Slim and LXDE but Xorg won't start properly. Apparently it doesn't recognize the screen and tries to apply a wrong resolution, no matter what I do. Also, if I try Xorg -configure, I get stuck with a black screen .

I tried to copy-paste data from a xorg.conf file from there: [URL], to no avail.

If you'd care to look at my log file: [URL]

OpenSUSE Install :: Xorg Don't Work After Kernel Update?

Jan 18, 2010

After upgrading kernel, system (AMD 780G)refuses to start in graphic mode. Computer services running fine, but there's nothing or some trash on screen when X started. And no way how to get out except restarting or shutting down from remote computer.

Reinstalling, unistalling ATI driver doesn't help. Also manipulations with xorg.conf (install, safe etc previous file versions)doesn't help.

Sax2 detects videocard correctly, but result is same regardless which resolution@Hz is specified.

In logfiles I just can find this

Installation :: Ubuntu Doesn't Boot After Install / Resolve This?

Jan 5, 2010

I'm trying to dual boot 9.10 with Vista on an HP Pavilion Slimline (AMD64). I've tried both booting from a disk and using Wubi, and neither has worked. Booting from the disk takes me through the screen where I can choose to try Ubuntu without installing, but after selecting that, the desktop didn't load, the screen just went to black.

I decided to try Wubi, and it went well enough. Everything in windows worked, and upon rebooting, it was able to finish checking the installation. After one more reboot, I selected Ubuntu from the Windows boot manager, and then the grub command prompt appears. I can't seem do anything after that except reboot.

I have no idea what's going on with this computer.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 On PS3 No Boot - Install CD Doesn't Load

Oct 14, 2010

has anybody tried 10.10 on their PS3 (FW 3.15)? I first ran an update from 10.04 (which was working fine, including ext4 FS), and upon rebooting after the update, all I had was a black screen after PetitBoot. I then tried to do a clean install with the 10.10 PPC+PS3 Alternate CD, but same black screen after selecting any type of install from CD in PetitBoot. I then installed the OtherOS that's on the 10.10 CD (KBoot); same black screen. Went back to PetitBoot and tried the PS3 desktop 10.10 CD; same problem. I was almost ready to give up and reinstall 10.04 when I thought of using the "linux-old" option in PetitBoot. This loaded the newly upgraded Ubuntu 10.10 on my HD, with the difference that it's using kernel 2.6.32 instead of 2.6.35. This works fine. So here's my question (at last ): was the PS3 port of 10.10 tested by anyone before being pushed as a release on, or is there an incompatibility with kernel 2.6.35 that was never noticed, except for here where it didn't seem to go anywhere: [URL]? If I'm the only one left on earth with firmware 3.15 and interested in Ubuntu on PS3 at this point.

Debian Hardware :: Fresh Jessie Install - Machine Doesn't Boot With PCIe WiFi

May 4, 2015

I recently finished a mini-itx machine and everything was working great with a fresh Jessie install. I put in a PCIe wifi card and now the computer won't boot. The power LED is on, the PSU fan is spinning, but I get no display output at all and I don't know how far into the boot process the thing even got. I removed the card and the machine boots fine again.

I only have one PCIe slot so it is my only option, I don't have another PCIe card to try, nor do I have another machine to test the wifi card in. The card is brand new, for what it's worth.

WiFi card: [URL] ....
