Thread: Fatal Server Error: No Screens Found

    Default Fatal Server Error: No Screens Found

    Hello guys

    i dont know what to do anymore, i did a lot how to's and searched this forum and google for the answer to my problems. I can't find help so now i'm writing here:

    Frist some information about my system:
    openSUSE 11.4
    2.6.37.6-0.7-desktop
    Samsung rv520
    i3 4x 2,1 GHZ
    geforce 520M
    4 GB RAM

    Driver 4 my graphics card: NVIDIA DRIVERS 285.05.09 Certified and i installed it in init 3, i just ran the file everything worked perfect (i have gcc, make, kernel-source installed), i did it manually because otherwise i could not get the geforce 520M working.

    Repos: I got them from here Paket Repositorys – openSUSE and i have this packages from nvidia installed:
    Code:
    nvidia-computeG02
    nvidia-gfxG02-kmp-desktop
    X11-video-nvidiaG02
    Well, then i have updated openSUSE with the package manager and since then i always get into the init 3 runlevel, no chance to init 5 with su.

    I already tried this:

    openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users of course nVidia Graphic Hardware drivers...
    [erledigt] fatal server error - no screens found - openSuSE Installation - openSUSE Linux - Forum - Hilfe - Anleitungen - Tutorials - openSUSE 11.4 - kostenlose Tipps & Tricks (Watch out german)
    I also deleted the # from the last line in this file: permissions.local - permissions in openSUSE - Gitorious - sry i lost the link to the thread, this is the only thing i can remember.

    and i wrote a new xorg config file with
    Code:
    nvidia-xconfig
    output was:
    Code:
    Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"."]Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".
    Backed up file ´/etc/X11/xorg.conf´ as ´/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup´
    New X configuration file written to ´/etc/X11/xorg.conf´
    I often read you should do something with that order:
    Code:
    sax2
    but i can not use it, the package sax2-tools is installed but the suse doesn't recognize it.

    In /etc/X11/xorg.conf in Section "Device" Driver saids "nvidia". I think thats correct?

    Maybe you need this information too:
    Code:
    startx
    delivers something like that:
    Code:
    ... 
    Current Operating System: Linux linux-qnyg.lan 2.6.37.6-0.7-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-07-21 02:17:24 +0200 i686
    ...

    (EE) No driver available.
    
    Fatal Server Error: No Screens Found
    
    Pleas consult the X.Org foundation support
    ...
    okay the nothing happens after a while these 3 lines came up:
    Code:
    xinit: giving up
    xinit: unable to connecto to X server: Connection refused
    xinit: server error
    I guess the package, kernel and driver are the same version so that shouldn't be a problem, should it?

    And yes i copied these outputs from my laptop with the keyboard from my pc, i don't know how i should get the laptop command line outputs in here. Please i need help!

    please tell us what happens if you boot from a known good (know by doing
    this: http://tinyurl.com/455hbml) openSUSE 11.4 Live CD and run from the
    live cd...

    or tell us, did you have a functional/usable system immediately after
    the first boot at the end of the install process?

    and, was that a clean, format and install of 11.4, or was it an
    "upgrade" laid over a pre-existing linux install...if so, what distro
    and version?

    you say you installed the nvidia driver by compiling at a init 3 command
    line....because otherwise "i could not get the geforce 520M working."
    hmmmm...i wonder what when wrong when (is?) you followed the
    instructions here: http://tinyurl.com/37v9y7m

    I had a system which was completely functional till i installed the first updates via the package manager. The oss install was a clean install over a shredded hdd without any other oss's on it, i used the 11.4 DVD to start it but my source was the internet (195.135.221.134/distribution/11.4/repo/oss). The dvd couldn't complete the install, it stuck at 25% without a move in 30 min, thats why i used the http method to install it. I guess the reason for my damaged dvd is that i didn't used the checksum I've never done this before - i thought that wouldn't be necessary.

    I read my post again - it was a little bit unintelligible. I mean i
    but only the
    xorg.conf file and xorg.conf.d directory in Linux.
    part. Why not the stuff above this part? Because before my little problem here, i didn't know this thread, i discovered the thread because i was searching a solution to my problems.

    Is there hope or should i download the dvd again witch the mb5 checksum and reinstall openSUSE? Of course, then, with the instructions of Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users...

    at this point, with the symptoms you describe it is hard to know exactly
    what is wrong in your system...it might be possible to fix it, but i
    sure can't do it from here..

    probably, the best course of action is to use a known good install disk
    (checked via http://tinyurl.com/455hbml) and start over...*if* you again
    have a full stall at 25% then there must be something about your
    hardware which is causing extreme problems with the install script..

    so, don't proceed on that path until you determine the reason for the stall!

    i'd suggest if you are going to try again, instead of the DVD download,
    burn and *self test* a Live CD version and run it from the CD,
    live...and, see how stuff works...if most things work ok, then boot from
    the CD again and select to install from it

    then, once installed, immediately right click and disable the packagekit
    updating applet in the system tray (it _is_ broken), and perform all
    software installs via YaST Online Update and Software Management..

    and, run for a while with the system as installed and then use the one
    click to install the video driver..

    you will find that you can edit for about ten minutes....but, it will be
    good to hear how it made out..

    i realize now i probably should have pointed you to the excellent

    Just a note.

    You can verify if the downloaded ISO image is bad before burning it; and if
    it is bad, there are procedures to repair it without downloading it in full
    again.

    The second step is, once you know the image is good, to burn and verify the
    DVD.

    Thumbs up Re: Fatal Server Error: No Screens Found

    @robin_listas I read your post too late, i bet repairing the "old" .iso file would have been a lot quicker than downloading it again...

    I downloaded the torrent file and did exactly this.

    Short version:
    Checked the Checksum of the .iso file. everything okay
    Burned it, checked with the burning program. everything okay
    Checked it with the dvd itself, here is what i got:
    Code:
    Error reading sector 1364530
    This DVD is broken.
    The DVD is a sony and i burned it with cdburnerxp.

    so, you know the iso itself is ok..
    hmmmm...did you get a perfect match with which, md5 or sha1?


    > Burned it, checked with the burning program


    burn as slow as possible, use good quality media...

    those make really attractive coasters..

    if you burn several in a row you kinda have to assume a hardware
    problem.....unfortunately the DVD burners i've had contact with in the
    last few years don't seem to last very long...some folks say to have
    two, one for all your reading and a different one used only for writing..

    Yes, use the new one for writing, and the old one for reading. It is
    possible, if you have the cables and space.

    I've been told that the lens get deformed in time; it heats and is made of
    plastic materials, not glass. I can not certify this assumption, but it
    seems reasonable.
