View Full Version : [xubuntu] 10.04 won't boot

June 13th, 2010, 08:27 PM
Hi all,

yesterday i upgraded to the latest version, but after restart it froze on the splash screen, giving me a colourful collection of pixel-blocks full-screen...:mad:

Rebooted, chose recovery-mode and got this error-message:
(EE) open dev/Fb0: no such file or device
(EE)Radeon(0): [dr] RadeonDriGet version failed to open DRM

I am a total noob, and have installed Xubuntu as a sort of dual-boot backup on my winXP machine. So could you please help me out?

the dev/fb0 message is just telling you there's no floppy drive, and is not a problem. But the Radeon line is telling you it's having trouble with the Radeon graphics driver and that's what's causing the issue.

Do you have ATI Radeon graphics, or is it maybe trying to use the wrong driver?

It would help if you list what your computer is, what the exact graphics card is, and which version of xubuntu (ie Lucid 10.04, Karmic 9.10, etc) you're using.
