    Default IBM X30 boot/startup problems

    Well, my IBM X30 only boots with the boot option "nohotplug". Otherwise the boot hangs after the line "Module dependencies up to date (no new kernel modules found)"
    After booting, a "xconf" fails with sth . like "cannot run auto config", and "startx" ends with sth. like "Cannot open /dev/tty0 (no such file or directory)."
    Anybody an idea?

    PS: VGA compatible controller is Intel 82830 CGC

    Default Same Here

    Hello, I am a Linux noob to be true.......and I have the same problem.
    My X30 stalls during boot from cd and USB!
    If I boot with debug option the last line is
    "/sbin/modprobe -q parport_pc"

    Second problem: if I boot with the nohotplug option and after login I issue xonf I get the error saying "cannot run autoconfig". Why this.....?? I have also VGA compatible controller is Intel 82830 CGC. Is this connected with the nohotplug option? I don't think so.
    Xorgsetup doesn't work either ("cannot open /dev/tty0 - no such file or directoy), and with xorgconfig he asks me for information I really don't know (frequencies and stuff). Is there another way around. I really don't know what to do now!
    Please help me, I'd also want to enjoy the new bt3 (btw. bt2 runs normally)
    Thanks in advance!!!!

    I found out that it seems to be a problem with udev.
    nohotplug doens't start udev, and when you try to start udev with /etc/rc.d/rc.udev start after the nohotplug boot, it stalls...............
    Has somebody an idea (no there are no error messages.......)
    I know notting about that udev feature..............

    Default hi

    i found an issue for this problem in a forum , with my laptop it solves the pb

    - boot with nohotplug

    # ln -s -f /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/kernel/drivers/char/agp/ati-agp.ko /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/kernel/drivers/char/agp/intel-agp.ko
    (instead of "ati-agp.ko" choose the good one of course)
    # /sbin/udevd --daemon
    # /sbin/udevtrigger
    # flux

    excuse my english
