Re: Interesting error cycle
Ok, so I managed to get into the graphical interface now. I just had to do a battery pull and continue from there.
I go to the install... finally. let's see if this works! :D
English --> Canada --> USA Keyboard --> Select disk.... --> Resizing partition --> Going out to eat. Don't have the time to sit and wait... will update when back :D
All went well, it installed. Next I had to re-install the drivers for ATI, and to the apt-get check because I was missing some dependencies.
sudo apt-get install libqtgui4 was run, then...
I did apt-get update, then apt-get autoremove. This made things run nicely :D
Furthermore, running wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/at...x86.x86_64.run
Then sh ati-driver-installer-11-5-x86.x86_64.run
made it install the drivers, but it didnt work, so I had to build the .deb. This is done through:
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
run sudo aticonfig --initial
Upon reboot, I did apt-get check, then apt-get update and things were swell. It's now working fine... I still have one problem however... I CAN'T seem to get Visual Effects to work :S Any ideas would be appreciated. I will do more research as well and update in here to help anyone else with similar issues.
... Seriously... Ok, that was an easy fix. I didn't even have to blow my mind thinking too hard. I just checked to see if my compiz was updated, and it wasn't even installed. To enable visual effects just install compiz. Done.
Ok, now another problem. I just had to restart, and then BAM, visual effects gone, and I have a giant black X. I will have to google this... I can re-enable the visual effects... do I really want to do that each time?
Installing compiz and compiz add-ons made that problem work. Apparently backtrack doesnt come with compiz :P So, basically, my problems are solved, and I hope this helps you with yours. :D
