X Server problem during Install
Hey Guys, I'm attempting to install Ubuntu 6.10 as I'm writing this. Machine: AMD Athlon X2 3800+, ATI Radeon X800XL 256 GDDR3 PCI-e, 20.1inch wide LG LCD (I'm using the analog conection to my monitor). Installing on a new HD. Installing Ubuntu 6.10 Desktop Amd64, from a Live CD. It boots, gives me the install menu, i Choose "start or install ubuntu," or "install in safe graphics mode" (i tried both) After loading for a little bit, it gives me the following blue screen: "Failed to start the X server (your graphical interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the X server output to diagnose the problem?" I choose yes, it reads among other things: (==) using conig file: "/etc/x11/xorg/conf" (EE) no devices detected. Fatal server error: no screens found. I press ok, it asks me to view the detailed report. That reads: (my graphics card is detected properly) (xx) screen "default scren" (WW) the directory "/usr/share/x11/fonts/misc" does not exist a bunch of other warning with the same thing. Then it gives ma a whole readout of different ATI video cards, about 10 pages long, finally ending with (WW) ATI: PCI Mach64 in slot 2:0:0 could not be detected (WW) ATI: PCI Mach64 in slot 2:0:1 will not be enabled because it conflicts with another non-video PCI device. (EE) no devices detected. Fatal Server error: no screens found. Dinally when i press ok, it reads "The X server i now disabled. Restart GDM when it is configured correctly." When i press enter it just gives me a black screen. I tried installing the same version alternate CD, that actually went through the entire installation but once i tried to restart into my newly installed ubuntu OS, it gave me the same exact screen and messages. Now I should mention that i'm a noob to Linux and in no way know what i'm doing, but if anyone knows how I can deal with this, I would appreciate it.
