Updated broke my xserver

Postby t0psy » 21 Jul 2014 10:18

I updated today 21 \july via UM and after a reboot xserver does not start.

Half way through the update process I had to press "q" to make the process carry on.

I logged in at the prompt ans tried "startx"
and got:-
xinit: unable to connect to X server: connection refused
and a few other lines.

I tried re-configuring xorg which did nothing

I then tried re-installing xorg which met with unmet dependancies. (sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver.org)

I then tried as prompted (sudo apt-get -f install)
this installed some packages, reconfigured and restarted lots of services.

From here "startx" was good.
Sorry I don't know the package names it complained about with unmet dependancies.

I just came back from holidays. Do you still need help with this?
If so, did you check the UP 2014.07.15 opening post?
and this survival kit?

SolydXK needs you!
