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 [url=http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=122257]Xenopeek's topic[/url])
[*] 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
Please help LM Forums, you're my only hope.
