PostPosted: Fri Jan 11, 2013 9:58 am    Post subject: startx and black screen with a _ Reply with quote

Hi guys,
First of all i want to apologize for my english, i'm not a native speaker.
Second of all i'm using a gentoo based distro right now, and i configured a stage3+portage with chroot on other partition, like i considered it was good and like i know till know. I found the handbook really usefull and i understand almost everything, it's great to found such a documentation.
So the problem with xorg, if i try to start, i got a black screen with a "_" and i can't do anything, like ctrl+alt+f1,2,3. I need to press my power button.
I have 2 video cards: Intel HD Graphics 3000 and GeForce GT 630M
arch=amd64
xorg-server-1.13.1.901
nvidia-drivers-310.19
gnome-3.6.2:2.0


This is my xorg.conf (it's the xorg.conf i currently use it, i copied it to gentoo)

But i checked emerge xf86-video-intel -pv and i see there's no intel installed, if i try to emerge it:

I don't know if they are related but udev failed to start when i boot into gentoo. I checked and it's installed:

[ebuild R ] virtual/udev-196
[ebuild R ] sys-fs/udev-196-r1
[ebuild R ] sys-fs/udev-init-scripts-19

Also:
Code:
eselect opengl list
Available OpenGL implementations:
  [1]   nvidia *
  [2]   xorg-x11


I found other posts here related to my problem but i can't find anything that could help me.
I don't know what i'm doing wrong and how to solve this issues.

check
Code:
lsmod|grep nouveau

and if there is a nouveau, add it to blacklist.conf in /etc/modprobe.d
Hope that helps

My bad. I was in a hurry and didn't read carefully enough to notice that even if you had nouveau compiled, you have much more problems. :-)
Please paste the output of
Code:
emerge --info

Your xorg log would be useful.
Also, not much can be said about the build failure without config.log, though chances are 'emerge --info' will show the problem.
Your kernel config might matter too.

Ignore the part with system name, it's from my currently distro.
I've made a mistake in my first post, i set the arch=~amd64, maybe that was wrong from the beginning, but i didn't know it's so dificult with all new drivers

Well, your compiling problem is most likely due to '-march=x86-64' being a bogus value.
Now, pastebin your kernel config.

I've used genkernel tool cause i spend 1 day looking at make menuconfig and i wasn't sure which features i should enable.

That's why i tried with my current xorg.conf, because it must be working without it.
This is the Xorg.0.log without xorg.conf

First,
Code:
[    29.724] (EE) Failed to load module "intel" (module does not exist, 0)

is that mistake? ...or you really didn't enable "intel" driver in kernel?
and show us the
Code:
emerge -pv xorg-drivers


Second,
Code:
[    29.481] (WW) Open ACPI failed (/var/run/acpid.socket) (No such file or directory)

install and run acpid
Code:
emerge acpid && rc-update add acpid default


Third,
Code:
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="amd64 ~amd64"
ACCEPT_LICENSE="* -@EULA"
CFLAGS="-march=x86-64 -O2 -pipe"

it's no so good, that
Code:

ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="amd64"
ACCEPT_LICENSE="-* @FREE"
CFLAGS="-march=native -O2 -pipe"

will be better.

Fourth,
Code:
* IMPORTANT: 6 news items need reading for repository 'gentoo'.
  * Use eselect news to read news items.

read the news for the end!

Fifth and the last
Code:
This is a pre-release version of the X server from The X.Org Foundation.
It is not supported in any way.

which means absolutely no warranty, so nobody cares 8)

Thanks for answer cord.
First of all, i said in the first post that i have some erros if i try to emerge xf86-video-intel.I don't know how to fix that. Second of all, i have errors with emerge acpid (http://pastebin.com/SfDrDVzp).I've modified my make.conf and i didn't see that message of X. I'll try to reinstall X, maybe i can put intel (cause i'm pretty sure i need that) or i will start over from stage3+portage (but now i'll use arch=amd64)

edit: it's a lost cause, i'll start over, maybe this time i'll do it correctly and maybe i'll put other DE.
thanks for all the help, admin please close this.

edit 1 day later: It was definitely my fault. I started over with -march=native and arch=amd64, be carreful what packages i've installed and everything is perfect now :) thanks for help

Irony?
I wanted to solve the problem but all that i heard was put emerge --info and other stuffs. You don't even read my first post when i said that i don't know how to install intel. Everything was a mess because of that arch=~amd64.
I start over today and now i have a working xfce4. I have some problems with broadcom because b43 is not working for me, so i need wl and there's a lot of stuff to do but i can't complain. My xorg is fine, i learn a lot of things from this mistake and i can tell other people never use experimental in make.conf only if they know what are doing. It's better with package.accept_keywords.

radubogdan,

Its not really irony. Your reinstall did not fix anything, it just gave you an opportunity to not make whatever mistake you made before, again.
As a result, a learning opportunity for you was lost. Its very difficult to mess up gentoo so badly it cannot be fixed.
Reinstalls are bad habit you learned from using other operating systems.

Your helpers were reading your posts and asking for the information that they needed to pin down your problem so it could be fixed.

Thank you for answer NeddySeagoon, i didn't want to be rude in previous posts. Sorry for that.
I've been using linux for 4 years (i don't say it's long time) but i wasted time with lmde. I fall in love with a gentoo based distro for 1 year and i assure you i never reinstall it.
Maybe you we're right and i shouldn't reinstall this time, but i learned a lot of things from my 2nd install and i don't regret it. I try to not use forum for posting my problems , i want to use it for learning new things. So far i found a great community here.

Hey. I thought I would bump this since I have a similar issue and am using the fglrx module.

I can switch between consoles (or are they shells?) using F# but it is very delayed and takes a few minutes for the switch to occur.

If I delete the xorg.conf gnome3.6 starts fine but is in fallback mode (obviously). I saw a console print stating something was "spawning too quickly" so perhaps that is where the delay of the F# switching is coming from.

Edit - Found this http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=80708

Not sure if I needed this patch or not. What I did was unmask x11-drivers/ati-drivers. I ended up with x11 1.13.1 and catalyst 13.3 beta 2. This combination worked for me.
