    Question X server Problem

    Hello,

    I dont know wether i chose the right cathegory to poste this, but i hope so.

    I have a problem on my Suse 11.0 Machine. I updated yesterday 2 security updates. They needed a reboot. Now my X server wont start.

    While i start the system i dont get any graphical visualisation, but the bootloader. After pressing Alt + F10 i get some messages; some things seem normal to me, but then:

    Code:
    powernow-k8: Found 1 AMD Athlon 64Processor 3500+
    powernow-k8: Bios error - no PSB or ACPI _PSS objects
    powernow: This module only works with AMD k7 CPUs
    Jan 25 12:43:12 linux-drim kernel: nf_contrack version 0.5.0(16384buckets, 65536 max)
    Jan 25 12:43:18 linux-drim kernel powernow-k8:Bios error - no PSB or APCI _PSS objects
    Jan 25 12:43:20 localhost kdm [2887]: X server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly
    Jan 25 12:43:20 localhost kdm [2887]:Unable to fire uplocal display :0; dislabeling
    When i try to sart up X server manualy, i get only the message

    Code:
    Jan 25 12:43:20 localhost kdm [2887]: X server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly
    Jan 25 12:43:20 localhost kdm [2887]:Unable to fire uplocal display :0; dislabeling
    As im not very famiiar with the linux console i dont know what i can perhaps do.

    Thank you for any help

    'push*


    It would be already very helpful to have a way to get back the system i had before the crash.
    Can anyone explain how to do only with the console?

    What graphics?

    Was the update for the kernel?

    If so and you are using ATI or NVIDIA propriety drivers then you will
    need to re-install them again so they they match the running kernel.

    thanks for your answer

    No was simply a security update. Thats why i dont know what might went wrong.

    Im using Nvidia and the driver is installed and runs.

    Is there any posibility to set back the system to an earlier configuration?

    Try this.

    11.0 just issued a kernel update and you probably have the proprietary drivers for ati or nvidia.

    On the boot screen put 3 on the command line.

    login as root

    goto

    cd /etc/X11
    mv ./xorg.conf ./xorg.conf.bak1
    sax2 -a
    startx

    see if you get a desktop for root, if so a reboot and all should be well.

    after that you will need to re-install any proprietary drivers as before.

    just a thought but if

    sax2 -a

    doesn't help

    try again using

    sax2 -r -m 0=nv

    or possibly

    sax2 -r -m 0=vesa

    should at least get something running.
