Guest ddd3 Posted May 8, 2006 Report Share Posted May 8, 2006 I loaded Mandriva 2006 Free from the LXF cover disc, which I assumed would be the 32bit version, and it seemed to be really stable apart from Konqueror, which was easily overloaded. So pleased was I that when I saw that Mandriva were selling Official 2006 for half price I thought I'd do my bit for the company's finances and buy the 64 bit version. I just tried to install it. After downloading the packages and filling in the user and password details I got a message. "Cannot install Xorg package". The only option was to OK the message, at which point I was asked to choose a driver for X from a huge list of graphics cards. Mine (Voodoo 5) was preselected, so I clicked it and got the "Cannot install Xorg package" message again. So I tried to install again... and again... On the third try I elected to watch the details as they ran by, they were too fast to read, but there seemed to be several X11 - Xorg packages in there. When it failed again I did the old ctl/alt/del salute one more time and tried to read the messages that came up. There were a list of WARNINGs, but they vanished too fast for me to read, leaving just the following on the screen above the standard shutdown messages:- Gtk-WARNING **: Loading IM context type 'scim' failed at /usr/lib/libDrakX/mygtk2.pm line 432 . Entering step 'Configure X' The application 'runinstall2' lost it's communication to the display :0.0; most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed the application FreeFontPath:FPE "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts:unscaled" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing. Aaugh... What's gone wrong now? AMD 4200+ 64x2 Asus A8V motherboard 2 x 512Mb Corsair low latency RAM Voodoo5 graphics Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
