View Full Version : [ubuntu] X server fails to load

December 27th, 2008, 01:34 AM
When I try to boot into my 8.10 live cd, the program almost finishes booting then comes up with a message telling me x server failed to load. When I look at the troubleshooting screen it says it failed to create a failsafe file for the x server driver. Could this be due to a bad live cd? Or is it a hardware compatibility problem?
