    Unhappy Problem with X server


    Hello! I am having trouble starting xwindow when booting (after loading all the modules). The screen goes black and nothing happens.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks! Regards.

    any errors?

    check out /var/log/Xorg.0.log and check for errors.

    Common one's are:
    missing screen = usually a refresh rate problem or bad pci id in device section of xorg.conf

    wrong paths to fonts.

    bad mouse, keyboard sections.
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
