So my Hp dv6 laptop is having X Server issues upon booting - it crashes every time. I speculate it has to do with the graphics drivers I have but I don't really know. I did have to update my drivers in 14 to solve an overheating issue when I first installed LM; but I definitely don't remember the details as that was quite awhile ago.
Attached is the return from inxi -Fxz:
(sorry, I'm on a different computer - and typing would take ages; if this is too taboo I guess I'll type it all out as I need help that badly )
In short (I have the logs attached for full gory details):
(EE) 11: /usr/bin/X (0x7fa11f9dd000+0x478c1) [0x7fa11fa248c1]
(EE) Segmentation fault at address 0x70180
Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11 (Segmentation fault). Server aborting
That is the only error I'm aware of.
Things I have done to try to fix it:
[*] Edited GRUB boot parameters to include "nomodeset xforcevesa" (per Xenopeek's topic)
[*] Purged old xorg drivers
- Code: Select all
$ sudo apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-radeon
$ sudo reboot
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install fglrx-amdcccle-updates
$ sudo aticonfig --initial
$ sudo reboot
After both of those fix-attempts, X Server still crashes.
Please help LM Forums, you're my only hope.
