Restored image: doesnt go into x, "no screens found"

I’m not exactly new to linux, but Im new to OpenSUSE and imaging so I need a little guidance.

I installed OpenSUSE, then created an image with PING (basically a bootable partimage disc) and restored the image

boot back into OpenSUSE and it takes me to the command line. i login and try startx and get “Fatal Server Error \ no screens found”

do i just need to reconfigure X or something? and…how do i do that from the CLI?

any pointers appreciated, thanks!

You run as root sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia (or fglrx? for ATI? I don’t really know because i don’t own an ATI card)

Next time i recommend You use System Rescue CD. It’s maintained all the time and does contain some great new features like fsarchiver.

ill remember fsarchiver next time. i kept searching for partition imaging and linux and only got partimage so i gave it a shot.

i forgot to mention my ancient system has a geforce 4400 so i used nv instead of nvidia to get it to work :slight_smile:


As root user init 3 and then sax2 -r -m 0=vesa then init 5 should get
you a GUI running.
