Titel: Upgrade X.org to 7.1 crashes X  BeitragVerfasst am: 27.11.2006, 10:00 Uhr

Hi,

recently I tried to apt-get upgrade all my packages (it's a thing I do regularly, but it's been a while since my last one). This time upgrade would take X.org from 7.0 to 7.1, but after upgrade simply X doesn't work anymore. I can get this error message:

Code:
"could not open default font 'cursor'"


surfing the Web I could only find this, which doesn't help me enough since it's Gentoo-oriented and I don't know what's Debian for font-cursor-misc, nor if trouble's in there.

I could rollback the entire process from my images, but I'd like to be able to upgrade. Anybody got any idea?

TnX.

you have to reinstall your gfx driver after x upgrade.
the font error is not the reason for not booting.

I tried all of these:
  • upgrade, reinstall Nvidia driver and start X
  • upgrade and start X
  • only reinstall Nvidia driver
In the first two cases, X was not working; in the latter, it was. It sounds like driver is not the problem, but it's not enough to fix the entire scenario.

after installing nvidia, x should start by itself.
look in /var/log/xorg.0.log for more info on possible errors.

In fact it tries to start X, but fails. Tonight I'll have another try and have a look at /var/log/xorg.0.log for more info on possible errors as you suggested. Anyway, when it fails it gives me error message I reported, so I suppose trouble is related to a lack of something (perhaps a package regarding that font/cursor).

its rather a path issue, probably needs a symlink

I got it solved. I hadn't realised there's such a beautiful thing like fix-xorg7.sh, so by running it, hocus pocus, and voilà, X got OK once at last.
I had a look at the script, so I saw it basically does two things: edit xorg.conf to substitute font paths, and force reinstall of package xfonts-base. I suppose it's the former step that makes the trick, because some path has to be incorrect in previous release towards the last one. It's not a symlink issue, but it's a path one, good job!

Thank you devil for steady support, and thanks Kano & co. for making Linux better than itself Winken
