X wont load, x weirdness
2 Attachment(s)
Hi all,

I have a weird problem with my nvidia 6600gt agp card on ubuntu.

I have a dual boot system:
windows xp
ubuntu 5.10

When i start my system from a poweroff state. X wont get started. It hangs while loading the nvidia stuff (see xorg.log below)

However when i start the system and boot into windows xp and reboot straight away. X will load and ubuntu runs just fine.

Now my question is, how can this be? And how can i solve this?

I have added my xorg.conf file as well as the xorg.log

Re: X wont load, x weirdness
What kind of motherboard are you using and which BIOS version?

Also, please generate and post a bug report.

You can attach the bug report to your post here.

I was asking for the motherboard BIOS version, not the AMI BIOS version.

It doesn't look like the bug report was generated while the problem was present.

BIOS 1017 was released a month ago. Could please try updating to it and see if this problem persists? If so, please generate a bug report while the problem is present.

Re: X wont load, x weirdness

Well i cant generate a bug report, because the entire system hangs and i have to force a hard reboot.

However, i upgraded my system with the 1017 version and all problems are gone. X starts all by itself with the help of windows.

Many thanks for your help,

Re: X wont load, x weirdness
For future reference, you can generate a bug report before starting X.
