uPup-4.3.2 Sub_title: Starting X faied on VirtualBox
I've downloaded Karmic Puppy upup-432.iso, then i tested it on Virtual Box using 256MB memory. But, X couldn't start and it back to console. Running 'xorgwizard' again and 'xwin' from console gave same result.
I don't know if the problem was on VirtualBox setting or upup-432 xinit.
hey didik, If X failed to start and you wound up back at a prompt then this might be worth a try.
At the prompt enter #e3 /etc/X11/xorg.conf which will start a text editor with the file that configures X.
Scroll down to the line Driver "fbdev" #card0driver (I think it will say "fbdev")
Change fbdev to vesa
And then CTRL-K X to Save and Exit
Back at the prompt enter #xwin to retart X
If the driver doesn't say fbdev it still might be worth while changing whatever it does say to vesa. Also you might try entering xorgwizard at the prompt and choosing the Xvesa driver instead of the Xorg driver
