Hi All,

I've searched this problem up on google and these forums, but I have not found a solution to my particular problem.

Let me describe my hardware in more detail:

I have a Dell Inspirion 1545 (laptop). The builtin monitor broke, so I hooked it up via VGA and removed the laptop screen completely (that is, I unplugged it from the motherboard. I don't know if Gentoo still thinks there is a monitor there or not). I installed X, and enabled the AGP and KMS support in my kernel for my Intel Integrated Chipset.

Now, when I try to run startx, I get the error:

Fatal server error:
AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0

I'm not sure what this means, or why this is happening.

Here is the pastebin for my Xorg.0.log file:

I would greatly appreciate any help with this issue.[/url]

ericthecmh,

The only thing I can think of at the moment is to run X -configure in the console then identify the monitor and add Option "Ignore" "true" to the monitor section which should then completely ignore that monitor.

BillWho, thanks for your quick reply.

There is only one Monitor section created by X -configure, and I have further modified my xorg configurations.

40-monitor.conf:

Code:
Section "Device"
   Identifier "IBM ThinkVision"
   Option "Monitor-VGA-1" "Main"
   Screen 0
EndSection
Section "Monitor"
   Identifier "Main"
   Option "PreferredMode" "1280x1024"
EndSection


xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
   Identifier     "X.org Configured"
   Screen      0  "Monitor0" 0 0
   InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
   InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

However, I don't think the problem is there... the log file that is created when I run X is:

It seems the only error that is printed is the failed to set mode: Invalid argument. What does this means, why is it occurring, or how to fix it?

Thanks in advance,
Eric

Lets try going a bit more near unset state.
For the moment, lets remove that monitor conf snippet and check what full auto-detection will find.

Also, drop ServerLayout and InputDevice sections of your xorg log - they most likely do nothing anyway.

I was going to suggest the same as VoidMage. Your entry of Option "PreferredMode" "1280x1024" might be to high (for xorg that is)

The error in xorg.log is [ 50872.502] (EE) intel(0): failed to set mode: Invalid argument

It seems that the highest is mode 1024x768 for vga1

Thank you guys for your time. I really appreciate your responses.

I forgot to mention earlier, I tried removing all the configuration files (both the ones under /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d and the /etc/X11/xorg.conf), and running startx produced an error log showing that an error occurred at the same place (failed to set mode: invalid argument).

This is when there are no configuration files and when I ran X, it said something like "Using default configuration (30 lines) etc"

Thank you
Eric

Can you restart, startx then tail -n60 /var/log/Xorg.0.log with no xorg .conf and nothing under xorg.conf.d

Also what wm/de are you using and what's the contents of .xinitrc :?:

And also paste back xrandr -q

It has the same error. However, from the lines:

Code:

[133024.413] (II) intel(0): Output VGA1 using initial mode 1024x768


and

Code:
[133024.414] (II) intel(0): Allocated new frame buffer 1024x768 stride 4096, tiled


it seems to be choosing 1024x768 as the resolution.

Any ideas on what I should do now?

Thank you,
Eric

OOPS - yea it can't be done in console :oops:

Looking over the xorg.log it looks like it's all setup and ready to go including LVDS1 which I'm assuming is the broken one.

I would try to set the option "Ignore" "true" for that monitor then check for references to LVDS1.

I've never been exposed to trying to run the os on a system with a broken monitor, so I'm at a disadvantage here :?

No problem. I really appreciate your help and time.

When I ran X -configure no monitor section was created for the LVDS1, so I assumed it was automatically ignoring it. Should I create a Monitor section for it so that I can tell it to ignore that monitor manually?

Thanks,

Eric

I have exactly the same problem, a laptop without internal monitor and other monitor plugged in the VGA output.

And only way to run X is to write in boot command in grub "nomodeset" so will use VESA and X will work.
I tried this problem with, debian, centos, ubuntu, gentoo, mint, crunchbang and puppy linux.

the only one than can use intel driver and get X working is puppy linux, but without 3d accel, but puppy is using a 2.6 kernel.

some info:
