Hi all,

I tried running paldo on the above mentioned laptop. Everything seemed to go fine, apart from stating gdm and the xserver. There was an error and gdm could not start. I was informed to edit xorg.conf. I did this and what I found was that the wrong device driver was being loaded for the laptop. Should have been ati. I fixed the problem and typed startx. A very basic window appeared. I logged out of this and typed gdm. But gdm was already running.

So here I am. How do you retart gdm?

Cheers

Hi,

you can restart gdm with

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
/etc/init.d/gdm restart


BTW: Can you please post the output of

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
lspci


so that we can fix the autodetection to choose the right video driver?

Hi,

Thanks for your quick help.

I'm typing this from the laptop

It seems to think "atimisc" should be the driver.

The issue should be fixed in the next Live CD build.
