GUI not starting, Debian on Sun Ultra5
The system is a Sun Ultra 5, 384MB RAM, 40GB HD, 270MHz UltraSPARC.
The first time I installed Debian, I chose to install the desktop environment. Everything went perfectly smoothly from the net install, and then when it finished, the computer was rebooted. Upon reboot, Linux loaded normally, but once it tried to start the GUI, the screen went black, and I could not login.
So, I re-installed without the desktop environment option, which left out the GUI. I decided that I want to try out Xfce. So yesterday I;
#aptitude install xorg
#aptitude install xfce4
#update rc.d -f xfce remove
apt-get install rcconf
I unchecked X11 in rcconf. I also modified my xorg.conf file so there was a SubSection for a single resolution. Anyway, when I type startx, the screen goes black, just like it did before. I do notice that in the upper left there appears to be a white dash or underscore, but other than that, its black.
So any advice on how to get a GUI working is appreciated.
