Thread: OpenSuse 11 - xorg crashes after update

    Unhappy OpenSuse 11 - xorg crashes after update

    Hi, my problem is that recently after I installed security update to xorg provided by Suse Updater my x-windows cannot wake up.

    I tried to reinstall all x11 pattern but the same.
    It looks like error initializing runlevel 5 and I receive
    fatal error: no screens found.

    Any ideas?

    This may or may not work:
    At the boot screen thype the numeral 1 and press enter. That should get you into runlevel 1 console where you log in as root. Try these things one after the othe,m then next one aftyer the previous one fails:
    1. sax2
    2. startx
    3. sax2 -m 0=vesa
    4. sax2 -a
    5. sax2 -r

    I don't think run level 1 is at a sufficient level to run X without more commands (or am I wrong). Is it not better to try this from run level 3 ? i.e. instead of typing "1", type "3".

    There are also other sax2 options, that one can get from running:
    man sax2
    man sax2.man (1) - SuSE advanced X11 configuration, a complete module based X11 configurator - Linux Manual - Digipedia

    For example,
    sax2 -l
    will load a very low res (640x480 I think) X which can be useful for an initial setup if the higher resolutions are causing problems. With that loaded, one can used easier to follow GUI tools to sort one's graphical problems.

    and finally, if one has multiple graphic devices, then one may need to type "sax2 -m 1=vesa" instead. One can check out how their graphic devices are assigned by typing:
    sax2 -p

    I forgot to mention. After configuring with "sax2 somevalue", one must then exit root permissions (by typing "exit") and then type "startx" to test X window.

    Sometimes I take these commands for granted, and forget not everyone may know this.

    Hm...the same happened.
    I cannot cut+paste from console error text however it looks also like runlevel 5 initialization is a problem.
