Topic: SOLVED: Trouble Starting X
I recently updated our PXE server from GParted 0.18.0-1-i686-pae to 0.25.0-3-AMD64.
Anyway, it seems to boot up fine, however right before the GUI would normally show up now I get:
Debian GNU/Linux strech/sid debian tty1 debian login: --noclear (automatic login)
Every once in a while the screen will flash black for a second (I think it is attempting to start X), but the GUI never loads. I've tried the i686-pae version as well with the same results. The old 0.18.0-1 seems to work fine. I've also tried manually entering settings and nothing seems to work correctly. It doesn't seem to be hardware related as I've tried an HP Probook 650 G1 and an HP DL385 G7 and the both have the issue.
My current pxelinux.cfg/default directory shows the new one as:
LABEL gparted MENU LABEL >Gparted 0.25.0-3-AMD64 kernel gparted/vmlinuz append initrd=/gparted/initrd.img boot=live config union=overlay noswap noprompt fetch=tftp://10.1.1.142/gparted/filesystem.squashfs
The old one is:
LABEL gparted-OLD MENU LABEL >Gparted 0.18.0-1-i686-pae kernel gparted/Old/vmlinuz append initrd=/gparted/Old/initrd.img boot=live config union=aufs noswap noprompt vga=788 fetch=tftp://10.1.1.142/gparted/Old/filesystem.squashfs
EDIT: I tried the live CD on the laptop and it seems to work fine.
EDIT2: Boot parameters have changed apparently. The ones here: http://gparted.org/livepxe.php work.
