    Can't startx (gdm/kdm dies) - XFree86 / Matrox G200


    I've tried googling for a similar problem, but couldn't come up with anything. So I thought I'd try here...

    I'm unable to startx on this machine with the attached config. However,
    I know the hardware works since Knoppix is able to boot up and run
    X with no issues. Included below are my XF86Config file and the log file.

    Hopefully someone more experienced than myself can quickly look at the config/log file and see what is wrong?


    My system is : Pentium II 450Mhz
    Matrox Millennium G200 (AGP / 8meg)
    Debian [testing]
    XFree86 Version 4.3.0.1

    Thanks,
    woolfie.

    If I read your log correctly, your kernel lacks frambuffer functionality. If that is true, you could recompile our kernel adding the VESA framebuffer functionality.

    Also, your monitor is a hell of a monitor, but you have to be aware that the video card might not be able to withstand the resolution/refresh rate that it asks.. try those settings

    1024 x 768
    Vertical (Hz) 60 - 140
    48 - 113

    1280 x 1024
    Vertical (Hz) 60 - 100
    Horizontal (KHz) 64 - 107

    also try to re-run the xorgconfig or Xconfigurator

    Whoa- Debian testing still uses XFree? I heard it used outdated software, but that they would still call XFree TESTING is so stupid it's funny...
    Also, next time leave out the commented sections (the lines beginning with #). It'll make it WAY shorted and easier to read.

    As for your problem, try this before loading X:
    Code:
    modprobe matroxfb_base
    and see what happens. If the module doesn't exist, run lsmod and look for any matrox related modules, and try loading them instead.
    Hopefully, you'll be able to load X afterwards, but if you can't, or there's no framebuffer modules, you'll need to recompile the kernel, or in your case, compile a newer version of the kernel since Debian is probably still using an outdated kernel.

    Read the criteria that goes into determining whether or not a specific software package will be labled as "stable," or even "testing" for that matter before you make assumptions.
