Commodore OS Vision tmp.X11-unix suspicious mode
I have been having trouble with getting the GNOME 2.32 to start after installation on the Commodore OS Vision. The problem is when i boot, the OS doesn't go into the GUI it goes into console. So i login in, in console and type "startx" but this error occurs:
/tmp.X11-unix has suspicious mode (not 1777) or is not a directory, aborting. giving up.
xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.
I have read these forums:
[ubuntu] stuck at login - after changing login screen - Ubuntu Forums
Starting in Terminal Mode
Both of which relate to my problem exactly, and gone through the steps, but the error still exists.
I know the OS is compatible with my comp, because i can run the live CD without any issues.
It should also be noted that the OS was perfectly fine in a virtual machine on the same computer, but not on the physical machine!
The set-up is exactly the same, filsystem type & partitioning. The only difference is Windows is in the first partition.
Also I've realized that the livecd will only boot up properly under the VESA graphics (Safe graphics mode) not the normal. If i use the normal mode on the liveCD, it has the same problem!
I'm really at a loss?? :S
