Re: X-server can not be started

>graphinfo: unable to open device file at /dev/crt

Try to fix this!
Red lights always on after reboot?
Check if the card sits properly!
Check for additional power (?)

Compare both C8000.

As long as the red lights still appear you will not get it to work.

You could also test another slot ...

Re: X-server can not be started

Ups - sorry, you're correct

Any differencies when you compare both ws inside? (After shutdown of course)

Re: X-server can not be started

But if you have 2 C8000 systems, you could easily swap the graphic cards between them and report about the results.

Hope this helps!

Re: X-server can not be started

I need the "good" C-8000 to run for the next hour.

Meanwhile I will check the inside of the bad one and will try to swap the cards later.

Re: X-server can not be started

Hi,

 

I rebooted the system but still, the same problem was there (including the LED lights).

graphinfo: unable to open device file at /dev/crt

> Red lights always on after reboot?
Yes
> Check if the card sits properly!
Sits properly (I even clean the place with compressor air)
>Check for additional power (?)
Not found


> You could also test another slot ...
see below

Now I open the machine and open the release card, then release the APG connectors screws from the rear panel (in order to swap between 2 graphic cards).

But I can't pull out the card from the slot and I don't want to use much power.

Is there any "trick" there ? Is there any user guide for that?

Re: X-server can not be started

OK, I found how to do it... :)

Well now, after I swaped between the cards no Orange lights on the both rear and fron panel.

But still, graphinfo gives " unable to open device file at /dev/crt

Also, the same basic problem of this thread is there: X-server can not started.

Re: X-server can not be started

Have you reconfigured the kernel from the link I gave you?

Re: X-server can not be started

I followed the instructions of this thread:

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/System-Administration/Getting-DLKM-is-not-initialized-in-dmesg/m-p/3616...

 

I attached the process results

I rebooted the system.

 

Still the same /dev/crt and dmesg problems.

 

I will try other solutions you offered.

Re: X-server can not be started

Hmmm - maybe it makes sense to uninstall CDE and re-install it again to get a kernel rebuild without error messages.

Do you have the os installation cds?
Also the latest SW- and HWE bundles?

Re: X-server can not be started

Hi,

 

I only have the OS and I have never installed some thing on my HP-UX.

Can you instruct me how to do it?

BTW,

 

I tried to change the Monitor and X Server definitions via SAM and it said that "No Graphics Device found on this system".

Re: X-server can not be started

Hmmm - what's about changing the disk?
Try to boot the c8000 with the hard drive of the working one.

If that works, it would be the simpliest to copy (dd command) the disk from the working one.

Then use 'setparms initial' to re-define network, hostname, ...
(The clone should be off-line before booting)

See 'man 'setparms' and read which informations you need when you run the command.
