Another Blackscreen problem
I recently installed BT4 beta via DVD image and the installation went perfectly well. I just ran into a few headaches that seem to have bothered me:
After the install, I rebooted my system and logged in via root/toor. However when i invoke startx all i get is a black screen. I am able to ctrl+alt+F1 back to the console but thats pretty much it.
My specs are as follows:
Dell 2707WFP (Widescreen Flat Panel)
Intel Core 2 Dup 2.66GHz / 10ggMHz / 4MB L2 / Dual core
nVidia GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB PCIe Card
2GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM Memory (2 DIMMS)
2x 160GB SATA 10K RPM
I read a lot of the other threads here and in other sites concerning the same problem and I am still stumped. I also read archangel.amael's guide to setting up xorgconfig for monitors to "see what you are doing" but whenever I invoke the xorgconfig command it says:
-bash: xorgconfig: command not found
I also looked into the xconf file and found it was empty (?) I saw a few other guides point to it as a case of fixing display issues when loading the KDE environment.
I know it has to be a graphics card
Any help on this issue would be much appreciated as I spent the last 6 and a half hours trying to figure it out. But I dont plan on giving up.
