OK, So I have been using full monty for over a year now and the old drive I installed it on is showing signs of failing I think as every now and then I get a boot fail and a message to manually run fsck. Time for a new drive i think. I figured, since I havent used half of the apps in full monty I would go back to just PCLos.
I downloaded the latest. Put it onto usb using unetbooting. When I boot though, it doesnt go straight to desktop, it goes to a login prompt. I tried login as guest and root, did the 'startx' and get an error saying something about no nvidia module. OK, so I guessed bad ISO, but just incase, I put it into my laptop (Dell, with intel graphics) and hey presto, it works. Good iso after all.
After some searching, I found out about XFdrake. tried it, found my graphics card. It said there was a driver avaiable. selected this option, and it said reboot, so I did. Trouble is, it wont reboot (or poweroff for that matter), it gets to a message 'no more processes running at this level'.
I have left it like this whilst making a coffee but it went no further. Hit the reset on my pc but to my dismay, I'm stuck back at the login prompt and when I try 'startx' I get the same old message about:
failed to load module 'dri' (invalid module, 0)
failed to load module 'nvidia' (module does not exist, 0)
No device detected
fatal server error:
No screen detected.
Apart from someone saying 'get another graphics card' (Difficult as this is an 8yr old agp system with an nvidia gforce fx5200), any suggestions guys??
