i am new here. i downloaded BT2final and burn it on CD(8xspeed).
i have a laptop(gericom blockbuster excellent, graphiccard: Intel(R) 82852/82855 GM/GME, 64MB, 1024x786, 16bit, 96dpi, 60hz)
after booting the login panel comes. Login: "root" , password: "toor". When i type "xconf" i receive an error:
Trying to autoconfig Xwindow System, please wait..
/usr/bin/xconf: line 58 4241 Segmention fault /usr/X11R6/bin/X -configure2>/dev/null
cannot run auto config. Try xorgsetup(menu) or xorgconfig(plaintext) command
when i type startx:
xauth: creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.4512
/usr/X11R6/bin/xinit: Connection refused(errno 111):unable to connect to Xserver
/usr/X11R6/bin/xinit: No such process(errno3): Server error
can anyone help me? sorry for my bad english
i thing it is not the burning. i burned Backtrack 1 (of the same CD, its a RW-CD). after burning i started it and everything was ok, no problems. But BT2 didnīt log in. other ideas?
Have you tried just typing startx and not even bothering with xconf ?
I saw in the HCL that someone with a similar laptop said that xconf messes things up.
The problem you are having is due to display settings, seems that BT is not able to recognize your display driver automatically, so you have to do it manully. And as the screen says try xorgsetup; which will give you a menu for the configuration or try xorgconfig which is a plain text. I have ran in such problem when using redhat & gentoo on one of my PC's.
Please, could you try it and post your feedback.
first i tried with xorgsetup. i picked the settings for my display. then saved the "xorg.conf" file, reboot, but nothing happened. how can i reboot the Xserver in console without rebooting the system??
then i tried with xorgsetup, but i didnīt understand, what to do there. I thing i had to write in the xorg.conf file manually. how should i do it??
Since you are using LiveCd, then rebooting the system will flush out your xconf file. as I remember you can restart the X-window server by pressing the following key combination:
Could you please try it after configuring your xconf file without rebooting the system.Code:Ctrl + Alt + Backspace
