#42 Xorg will not start...


I cant get the via-driver to work on my Acer Aspire 1362WLC.
I am submitting the xorg.conf and the Xorg.0.log-files so you can
check them.

    The logs you submitted are double gzipped :-(

    What I can tell from the log :
    It seems that X doesn't find a valid mode. Try with a more
    standard mode than 1280x800, I don't know the status of free
    modes for the K8M800
    Also the logs don't contain the unichrome driver version,
    which make me think it's an old version. Do you have more
    info on this ? In any case, first upgrade to the latest
    version of the driver.

    Some general information like which distro and which release
    would be nice too. And I think this discussion will be
    better suited to the unichrome-users mailing list than the
    bug tracker as it's unlikely to be a bug or at least not an
    unknow one :-)

    I found out that there was another via_drv-file that was loaded then that
    one that the CVS from the unichrome-project installed.
    Well... now there is another problem. There seams to be some linking-error
    when I try to run the new one. Something with "Unresolved symbol..." to
    some vgaHw-things.

    Sending the new log, but the error-messages isn't there, and I couldn't get
    them in any log, so I am writing them down by hand:
    /usr/X11R6/bin/X: relocation error: /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/via_drv.
    so: undefined symbol: vgaHWGetHWRec

    And then the usual error that the X-server didn't start.

    Btw: Using Xorg from CVS, and using Ubuntulinux as my dist.

    This is most likely a broken installation. vgaHW is loaded
    by the driver, so vgaHW probably isn't installed properly.

    As a second problem, the unichrome.sf.net driver doesn't
    support K8M800 currently due to lack of hardware.

    Will close for now. Reopen if the first problem persist on a
    new X install.
