View Full Version : [xubuntu] OEM install

October 22nd, 2009, 06:24 PM
Hi, all.

Installing Ubuntu 9.04.

I just tried the OEM install option on an old Dell Inspiron laptop. The install went fine and then I updated and needed to reboot (because the kernel was updated). When I rebooted, X-window system started but my desktop wouldn't come up; I was left with a blank desktop and my mouse cursor only -- waited for about twenty minutes and still no change.

Any recommendations?

I probably won't solve your problem, but I do think they will need more info from you.

What kind of video card do you have? post the contents of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Better chance of getting answers.
