Subject description: Scrolling xorgwizard error - how to stop it?
 

Hi. I installed lucid Puppy 5.2.8 to the hard drive on a Dell Latitude D600 laptop.
It worked fine a few boots and now it gives me a scrolling error message with about 20 lines repeated. The purple line says :
If X failed to start, type "xorgwizard" to setup X

How do I stop the scrolling so I can type xorgwizard?
I've tried ctrl-c, ctrl-F1 to ctrl-F12. Nothing stops the scrolling except ctrl-alt-del and that reboots. I can run puppy off the flash drive and it works fine. I tried reinstalling it several times but now every time I try to run from the hard drive, on bootup I get the xorgwizard error.

I installed Tahrpup 6.0 but that is too slow to view youtube videos. 5.2.8 runs fast enough to view youtube videos - this may have something to do with the different versions of Chromium.

I am not comfortable running off the flash drive because it's only a matter of time before I break off the flashdrive moving the laptop around.

what kind of install..

if frugal then pfix=fsck

if full boot live and fsck the install partition.

use ext3 rather than ext3 for either.

Tahr seems to have a lot running in the background but then lucid does too but it could be other factors..eg graphics driver...flash version.... older xorg likes your card more.... do you notice a cpu difference playing moovies?

Mikeb, thanks for the reply.

What does the line 'use ext3 rather than ext3 for either.' mean?

a typo...use ext3 rather than ext2 for full or frugal setups... less liklihood of corruption..I think I was suspecting a file had become corrupted cause the problem you describe.

Hope thats a bit clearer.


mike

ps i did it again Very Happy

Thanks Mike.

It was ext2. I formatted to ext3 and did a full install and it's working.

I was going to tell you to make sure you have Lucid 5.2.8.005.

You may want to try the newest version Lucid 5.2.8.7
