[Solved] Failed to set up x on media director
« on: October 21, 2012, 05:16:15 pm »
Ok I've run out of ideas here. I'm trying to setup a new media director and getting the dreaded "Failed To Setup X". There is no xorg.conf in /etc/X11 but there is a xorg.conf.pluto.avwizard. I've tried creating my own xorg.conf and deleting all the xorgs. No go.

Hardware on the MD is ASRock A55M-HVS, AMD A6, ASUS GT218 GeForce 8400 GS. All of this I guessed as compatible. I have had success in the past with the 8400. For
Code: [Select]
lsmod | grep nvidia I get nothing.
Code: [Select]
cat /proc/driver shows no such file or directory. Tried to install driver but cannot kill X.

So now I'm stuck. I just want to know if it's a compatibility issue or me as my bag of tricks is quite limited.

One thing to note if I remove the video card and go with the onboard "even HDMI" it works fine just not good enough. Also will not start AVWizard with that.

Thanks

Ok this is solved.

The video driver was not being loaded. This is now working as of 26592. The card, as mentioned above is an "ASUS GT218 GeForce 8400 GS".
I liked it because it was fanless and cheap. Newegg like $29.00. The good news is it looks like HDMI audio is working too but not tested.

This is all due to L3mce efforts with much thanks!
