dcerouter taking over
« on: June 11, 2008, 05:59:08 pm »
I've got an issue, and I'm fairly lost on what to do.

I'm using an ATI 2400xt video card, and after first install I followed the instructions in the wiki on how to update the ATI graphics drivers.  After that, I rebooted the router, ran the AV wizard again, bumped to UI2 from 1, and now after mce starts, it drops me back to the dcerouter logon after just a few seconds.  I have "/etc/init.d/kdm start" and it works, but again, only for a few seconds before dropping me back to the dcerouter logon. 

Anyone know what's going on?

Thanks in advance,

Sounds like your display drivers aren't configured properly.  You probably need to edit the xorg.conf file.

Well, I followed the directions and set the device from 'vesa' to 'fgrlx', is there anything else you think I'd need to change?

Yes I do, unless your satisfied with the status quo of course.  And before you ask, I don't have one of those cards myself, so I don't know what to exactly change either.  Try reading the rest of the page as well since it has some more general pointers on setting up a basic config file manually.
