Not the better place to do a bug report, but Xorg won't run at all.

I got this error (copied it from a screenshot I made) message while trying to load xfce on both qemu and virtualbox with AMD ISO image of 3.5-beta1

Code: Select all
failed to set mtrr: invalid argument
(EE) config hal: couldn't initialize context: unknown error (null)
/usr/local/bin/startxfce4: X server already running on display :0
Shared object "libharfbuzz.so.0" not found, required by "libwnck-1.so.22"
xinit: connection to X server lost

Waiting for X server to shut down failed to unset mtrr: no such file or directory

xauth: (argv):1: bad display name "livecd:0" in "remove" command


Both md5 and sha256 sums were OK.

I find that xorg load vesa instead of vbox drivers.

It will not explain crash under qemu. I use "-vga std" with qemu :



Code: Select all
-vga type
           Select type of VGA card to emulate. Valid values for type are

           cirrus
               Cirrus Logic GD5446 Video card. All Windows versions starting
               from Windows 95 should recognize and use this graphic card. For
               optimal performances, use 16 bit color depth in the guest and
               the host OS.  (This one is the default)

           std Standard VGA card with Bochs VBE extensions.  If your guest OS
               supports the VESA 2.0 VBE extensions (e.g. Windows XP) and if
               you want to use high resolution modes (>= 1280x1024x16) then
               you should use this option.


So, I understand for virtualbox, but for qemu ?!

Just to say GhostBSD 3.5 XFCE is looking good, well done.

( I found a few minor problems, & have created a new topic for them.)

The video drivers for Qemu is probably missing too since I don't use qemu i will have to investigate.

It's a classical vesa driver. I can use cirrus instead of vesa. Will try again and report ;)

Guess what ? Same problem. With -vga cirrus or -vga std, Xorg doesn't want to run, with the same error message.

Grabbed another ISO, sha256sum and md5sum are ok. But Xorg doesn't want to run... At all :(

Why ?!

I think it the drivers is missing in it. I will have to verify that.
