I'm trying to install Xubuntu 13.10 on a Compaq Presario SR1000 (I know, I know - it's a donation and all I've got right now):
There seems to be a problem loading X however. I get the boot menu, choose to install, then the graphical boot displays. After a while it flicks into a graphical display a couple of times - first showing a medium-grey background with a mouse pointer, then back to just a text cursor, then to a black background with a mouse cursor, then back to the text cursor indefinitely.
Going to the terminal and looking at /var/log/Xorg.0.log shows that there is a segmentation fault at address 0x0, and the server terminates with error. Looking at the boot log it says that "load fallback graphics devices" failed.
Any help in getting this going would be greatly appreciated. Is this a lame duck or can it be rescued?
