1 Hi,
3 it seems the powerfail this moring while I was updateing my Linux box
4 has killed / screwed up something.
6 The effect:
7 Slim login manager starts and presents the login screen.
8 It is possible to login but openbox seems not to start -
9 I get the typical cross-cursor in the middle of the screen
10 (but the grey background is replaced by plain black)
11 The last entry in the slim.log is:
13 slim: waiting for X server to begin accepting connections.
14 slim: open_session: Unable to open session: Unable to get information
15 about the calling process
17 I resumed the interrupted update process, I did:
18 "emerge xf86-input-evdev xf86-input-keyboard xf86-input-mouse
19 nvidia-drivers"
20 I recompiled the X-server.
21 Nothing helps.
23 What can I try else to get X working again?
25 Thank you very much for any (quick;) help in advance!
26 Best regards,
27 mcc
