Did you scrape'n install or just upgrade from 4.X to 5.X?1 person found this helpful
Try deleting this:
and if it fails, check the log message (the location will be on the screen).
# /sbin/telinit 3 # /bin/sleep 10 # /bin/cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf-save # /usr/bin/system-config-display # /usr/bin/startx
Thanks. I started to do what you suggested and it hit me when the main install screen came up, just before it attempting to start X, that I could just do the text installation. It's installing now and it will be interesting to see when that completes. I'll let you kinow.
Looks like I'm out of luck. Running /usr/bin/system-config-display blanks the screen and doesn't come back. It does not modify the xorg.conf. I tried to direct output from the above command but the file is empty.
However, in looking at /var/log/Xorg.setup.log I see things like this:
- intel: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:2:1) found
- Fatal Server Error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting
Since the works fine with RHEL 5 and OEL 4 I imagine that Oracle changed something in OEL 5 that affects this particular machine at least.
