[SOLVED] xorgserver1.7.1 shows only blank screen after update from xorgserver1.6.3
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 5, 2010
Hello linuxquestions.org members,
my laptop is running Slackware64 13.0. Today I tried to update to X.org 7.5 (version 1.7.1) from version 1.6.3 shipped with Slackware. I downloaded the relevant source tarballs from www.x.org and compiled them with no errors. The compiled packages are:
My laptop has an NVIDIA graphics card and I'm using the proprietary driver from NVIDIA. Thus I reinstalled the driver after the update and tried to launch X.org with "startx". After a short while the NVIDIA logo appears for some hundred milliseconds and disappears then. But now the screen is blank and it is not possible to switch to another VT via Ctrl+Alt+Fx. But it is possible to login from another computer and restart everything, so that I conclude that the system does not hang.
It is even po
Blank Screen after Update 12.04 LTS
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 12, 2013
I just downloaded the latest updates to Xubuntu 12.04 LTS and I get a blank screen and the monitor goes into standby mode. The problem seems to be with the latest kernel update (184.108.40.206). I tried recovery mode and found no apparent problems and on selecting "resume", the system did start, but with the wrong screen resolution. However, on restarting the system, it went back to a blank screen and standby mode.
I have temporarily fixed the problem by reconfiguring Grub to default to booting the previous kernel (220.127.116.11) which works perfectly. I was wondering if anyone else has encountered problems with kernel version 18.104.22.168?
PS - I'm running the 64 bit version of Xubuntu and I'm using the Nouveau open source drivers on an Nvidia 7600 GPU.
Blank screen after resume from suspend
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 27, 2009
After I resume from suspend, my screen is black. "Ctrl, Alt and F1/7" etc. does nothing, and pressing the power button or "Ctrl, Alt and delete" does nothing. All the lights come back on and the hard drive spins back up, but there's nothing on the screen. I'm using Debian Lenny on an Acer TravelMate 290 laptop.
I'm using the Intel graphics driver 2.3.2. With other distributions that use newer graphics drivers, it seems that from version 2.6 suspend works without any problems.
Without running Debian testing (which uses version 2.9) or waiting for it to be released as stable, I want to be able to use suspend. I've tried every possible "quirk" with pm-suspend and none seem to help. Can anyone suggest something else to try?
EDIT: I just found out that if I hibernate and resume (which works fine) then suspend works fine afterwards... until I restart my laptop. Then I must hibernate again before suspend will work. How strange! Any ideas with this?

[SOLVED] Why does 'echo $shell' display blank screen?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 3, 2008
I am running intrepid (8.10) on a live CD, and the echo command is working strangely. If I type 'echo $shell' or certain other commands where text output should be displayed, nothing but a blank line is printed. Could the reason for this be that I am running from a disk, and not from a full installation?
[SOLVED] numactl H command shows only 1 node (instead of 4) after reboot.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 14, 2015
I'm working on a HP ProLiant DL580 G7 server. This server has CentOS 6.3 installed on it recently. While running some parameter comparisons between this and another server, I could see that the output of numactl --hardware showed me I had 4 nodes (as expected). This server has 4 Physical CPUs (10 cores each).

Graphics Resolution Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

Are you having these problems?
- Error- "Cannot display this grahics mode"
- GRUB_GXFMODE-auto results in Blank screen problems on Startup? (this includes purple or black screen, flashing cursor, stuck at splash screen...)
- No Grub Menu?

Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, basically and simplistically run in layers like this--> You have a Linux kernel running. On top of that layer, you have a terminal session- running to interact with other layers. On top of that, you have an GUI, XTerminal session, X-Wndows, XServer or also known as an XSession running to have a visually interactive session running. In each version of Ubuntu (and of distro's) an honest and earnest attempt is made to make each new
