Re: Getting Ubuntu 8.0.4 to work on the Mini 12 - 05-01-2009, 07:25 AM
Hi.. I'm a newbie to Ubuntu/Linux and have Dell Mini 12 with UNR on it. I've been trying to get full resolution and have not succeeded so far inspite of following the instructions by riff5000
Here's my problem... I got the xserver-xorg-video-psb package...
I check it for install and the Synaptic Package Manager marks xserver-org-* and ubuntu-netbook-remix packages for removal.
Ok.. so I proceed.. install psb and remove others..
Now 'restart X' is the next step. Not very sure what it means but I tried two things:
a) Switch user - it fails bcos it cannot start Xserver and says GDM is misconfigured (apparently it is)
b) Log off - it exits the desktop and shows the log screen and keeping waiting... thats it.. So I reboot and it says 'no resume image found' and takes me to command line login...
So, what am I doing wrong?
