hi guys,

I've tried everything I could think of and it keeps respawning: look at hints and tips, tried rolling back nvidia driver, and messed around with xorg.conf. So, I logged in as another user(startx) and it seems to be ok, except for screen size --too small inside fluxbox. I'm thinking its a setting for mythtv user but I'm not sure what.

upgrade from 5.27 to 5.5

not much to go on there...

Since you mention the "respawning" I assume the "it" of that sentence was video drivers and you mention nVidia so I presume you're thinking its the infamous c7: issue? what card do you have, what motherboard, etc; or make&model of a pre-built PC?

By "messed around with xorg.conf" I'm hoping you didn't do anything that you couldn't tell its mother :lol: What specifically did you do?

I'm more concerned about the screen changing size for different users, that's a problem with the laws of physics; you're not moving the set at relativistic velocities are you? Do you mean the screen resolution is HIGHER for your non-mythtv user?

OK, I'm sorry for picking on you when you're down, or specifically when your myth box is down; that would be a bit of a crisis in my house.

If X works for one user, but not another, it's pretty much NOT a driver issue. Given the limited info available I'd say yes, it's a settings problem for the mythtv user. Look for files in ~mythtv/.fluxbox. I'm not sure where the defaults for the files come from. Something you're starting is crashing. And seriously, if you could elaborate more on the symptoms, and the steps you're taken, it would be more likely for someone to help you figure out what's happening.

Good stuff

Yeah I guess your right, I was a little vague.

Its a nvidia mx4000 card in the agp slot A7n266-e motherboard and its the "c7" respawning issue.

I fixed the screen resolution through the xorg.conf (used tv example)

In my .fluxbox/apps file for the user it works is this
Code:
[startup] {xset -dpms s off}
[startup] {mythfrontend}
[startup] {launch_irx.sh}


for mythtv(not working) its this
Code:
#[startup] {xscreensaver}
[startup] {xset -dpms s off}
[startup] {xvattr -a XV_COLORKEY -v 0}
[startup] {nvidia-settings --load-config-only}
[startup] {gnome-volume-manager}
[startup] {/usr/bin/x11vnc -nap -wait 50 -passwd mythtv -display :0
-forever -o /var/log/x11vnc.log -bg}
[startup] {KnoppMyth-run}
[startup] {launch_irx.sh}
[app] (SDL_App)
  [Layer]       {2}
  [Deco]        {NONE}
[end]


Not sure where else to look

Thanks

The last lines repeat 10 plus times. But I'm running mythtv from my user account ok.
I think its still trying to restart x for mythtv in the background.

Well the problem is somewhat solved. I copied my .fluxbox from my personal account to mythtv account and now x starts fine. Not sure if the problem was in init or apps.


After saying this, I notice slight hard drive activity(light blinks every 5 secs). Tried to watch /var/log/ for increase in size to any log, but nothing was noticed. Any ideas whats going on?

Thanks
