A great surprise!!!
September 05, 2009 06:46PM
I use im my computer 6 OS(Ubuntu 9.04, Big Linux 4.2 and Big Linux 5Alpha2, Mepis AntiX 8, Slitaz 2.0 and the Windows XP), and today I run the Elive Compiz by LiveCD and the surprise was so big(Good too), a beautifull, fast and strong system. Congratulations to the Elive's developers team. It's my next distro on my PC. Thank you!!! (Obrigado! - Rsrocha -Brasil)

The great surprise... is over!!!! Elive works well as LiveCD, but the installation on hard disk don't works!!! I made everything correct, when I choose Elive on grub, I have not acess to graphical session, just on line command. If I try use "startx" don't works too. How can I get a graphical mode??? What the correct xorg.conf??? My card (Graphics) is a Nvidia FX 5200.
The xorg.conf:

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Some ideas:
- Type lsmod|grep nvidia to be sure that the nvidia module is loaded. If not, load it with modprobe nvidia.
- Have a look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log. Maybe you will found some explanation of what went wrong when X was launched.
- Replace Driver "nvidia" by Driver "nv" in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Then type startx again.
- While in live mode, have a look to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and compare it to the one of your hard disk install.

The problem seems fixed for nvidia in 1.9.51, try it (yes, with compiz, but you need to enable it manually with the ecomorph module)
