(possibly also for other distributions).

This case occurs when we want to go to GUI mode (startx).

for some reason my first diagnosis leads directly to the VGA module, finally I try to play on the grub loader option until I can overcome this problem.

The following steps

time of entry in grub option, press tab to edit the grub loader option

note on the line "vga = 791 splash text"

edit to

Code:
"Text i915.modeset = 1"

then boot, by pressing ctrl + x

think we have entered the rootshell. (Root @ root: ~ #)

Here we need to xserver xorg.conf configuration file, because the default file is not there.

just run the command
Code:
"Xorg-configure"
then we copy the file you created earlier. copy to directory '/ etc/X11 / "


Code:
root @ root: ~ # cp / root / xorg.conf.new / etc/X11/xorg.conf
Next we edit first,

Code:
nano / etc/X11/xorg.conf

looking for driver "intel" that lies in the section "Device" then change it so vesa.

Code:
driver "vesa"
save (ctrl-x > y > enter).

here we should be able to enter the GUI mode.

try running startx


henceforth please install it.

btw, if there are more that can crash the installer problem, first try to connect to internet, I also crash the first time, it was necessary to adjust backtrack localtime. i think.

because the struggle has not stop here. (For my case, hopefully other friends who have fix).


ok, assuming the installation is finished. Please reboot to get into backtrack in our machine.

new problem arises, KDE will feel very heavy.


you must already know where the problem. for who do not know, here I share little else.

remember about the intel and vesa ? Now we return to intel.

If so, we need to install the vga driver.

Code:
apt-cache search intel | grep xorg
there have emerged three parts that we need to install.

xserver-xorg-video-intel
xserver-xorg-video-intel-dbg
xserver-xorg-video-i740
Just install it one by one.

#after installing the first one, we need to apt-get autoremove.

when it is completed and successfully install it, please reboot.


sorry for my very bad english. i'm from indonesia
