Greetings all, Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.Yesterday I decided to install Arch on the old Toshiba Satellite Laptop (which I previously installed Bodhi on....Sorry Jeff). My plan was to make this my test bed for learning bash shell scripting. Install as always went great. Installed the latest build. Performed updates and then installed Xorg.
# pacman -S xorg-server xorg-xinit xorg-utils xorg-server-utils mesa
All seemed to go well. Once installation was complete I ran Xorg-configure which resulted in configuration failed. This is the output:
[root@ichase02 ~]# Xorg-configureX org X server 1.10.3Release Date: 2011-07-08X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.39-ARCH i686Current Operating System: Linux ichase02 2.6.39-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Saturday Jul 9 15:31:04 CEST 2011 i686Kernel command line: root=/dev/sda1 roBuild Date: 09 July 2011 07:57:07 amCurrent version of pixman: 0.22.0 [color="#FF0000"]Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org to make sure you have the latest version [/color]Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default settings, (++) from command line, (!!) informational(==) Log file: "/var/log/Xorg.O.log" Time Sunday July 10 09:37:33 2011[b]Missing output drivers, Configuration Failed[/b]
I went to the Xorg wiki to try to see about the current version number of pixman but did not see anything useful.Checked the Xorg log file but it stated the same thing as above.Also searched google and seen some things that empasized the "Configuration Failed" but most of those were people that were updating their Xorg.This laptop has onboard Nvidia video, yesterday I tried installing the Nvidia drivers but it conflicted with another file that I did not write down. So I am sure this is not a hard fix but something definitely changed with the latest version of Xorg because I have installed Arch enough times to know I have not run into this problem up to this point.Has anyone else run into this problem lately? Thanks in advance for any guidance and or advice. ;)All the best,Ian
