nuvolario/19:36
nuvolarilo nlsthzn 19:36
nuvolarii'm just around19:36
nuvolarinothing serious :P19:36
nlsthznnuvolari: hey... 19:36
nlsthznMaybe you have a clue...19:36
nlsthzngnome,from the login screen I get graphical glitch... looks like many desktops overlapping, fonts fuzzy... can't read anything... any idea what could cause something like this19:37
nlsthzn?19:37
nlsthznCan't get a tty's19:37
nlsthznonly get black screens when I switch19:38
nuvolari:o19:39
nuvolarisounds bad19:39
nuvolarinlsthzn: did it happen after an upgrade?19:40
nlsthznfresh install (but I have to confes it isn't Ubuntu :/)19:40
nuvolarinlsthzn: the only thing I can think of is that your Xorg config got messed up19:40
nuvolariah19:40
nuvolariwhich distro?19:40
nlsthznFrugalware19:40
* nuvolari se tong sleep19:41
nuvolarieh?19:41
nuvolariwhats that?19:41
nlsthznWas able to get it working easily in VBox...19:41
nlsthznwww.frugalware.org19:41
nuvolariooh19:42
nuvolarilooks pretty19:42
nuvolari:D19:43
nuvolarianyway,19:43
nlsthzn:) Yup, it does look nice... when you can see it properly...19:43
nlsthznI can't even get the kernel option text to bypass gdm ...19:44
nuvolarinlsthzn: to get back to the point. I had a similar experience a while ago where gnome got messed up, so I deleted my .cache and .config folder... which was a bit painful since I lost a lot of tweaked settings)19:44
nuvolaribut if you say it's a fresh install... i'm afraid I don't have any other quick-fix19:45
nuvolaridefinitely sounds like a borked default xorg config19:45
nlsthznhmmm... so I should be able to do that... without really being able to see the terminal :p19:46
nlsthznthey are under ~/my name right?19:46
nuvolarikbmonkey: frugalware seems nice!19:46
nuvolarinlsthzn: ya, ~/.config19:47
nuvolarinlsthzn: I think I just emptied them, not removed the actual folders19:47
nlsthznoh yes...19:47
nlsthznhmmm... so I shouldnt rm -r .cache19:47
nlsthzn?19:47
nuvolariwell, try19:47
nuvolarirm -rf ~/.cache/*19:48
nuvolariand config19:48
nuvolari~/.config/*19:49
nuvolarinlsthzn: hmm, but this is even before you log in eh?19:49
nlsthznyup19:49
nlsthznthis is from the log in manager19:49
nuvolariwhich by removing those, I don't think will solve anything19:49
nlsthznand I can't get a tty, they are all black screens19:49
nlsthznnope, that didn't do anything19:50
nuvolari:-/ not having a tty is a big fail19:50
nuvolariit's like having your throat removed19:50
nlsthznyup... and i am unable to get gdm not to log into gui automatically19:50
nlsthznnothing i send the kernel seems to work :p19:50
nuvolarihmm. for now... retreat to something like Arch :P19:51
nuvolarior try freeBSD :P19:51
nlsthzn:)19:51
nuvolariin fact, try anything that *do* have a terminal to tinker with :P (besides window's cmd) 19:52
nuvolarihehe, sorry nlsthzn, I'm not much of help tonight19:52
nlsthznnuvolari: thanks for trying... it is appreciated19:52
nlsthznI will do what the windows user in me is screaming for...19:52
nlsthznre-install :p19:53
nuvolarilol19:55
nuvolariwell, sometimes it works19:55
nuvolarido you have install options? like enabling/disabling stuff?19:56
nlsthznI can choose packages...19:56
nlsthznbut it is a minimum install... which worked...19:56
nlsthznthen I installed gnome ... this is when the sports started |:p19:56
nlsthznwill again install gnome 3, but edit so it doesn't start gui from boot...19:58
nlsthznnuvolari: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4znKHMJkeEw for a look at Frugalware20:13
nuvolarinlsthzn: maybe try openbox first20:19
nuvolarithen if it works, move up to gnome20:19
* nuvolari checks video20:19
nlsthznnuvolari: hehe... ok :)20:19
nuvolarithe guy singing in the video has throat issues. needs a strepsil20:22
nlsthznnuvolari: :p I will be sure to pass the message on to Jono20:22
nuvolarilol20:23
nuvolariwhich one is Jono's voice?20:23
nuvolariI don't like music where the singer's voice sounds like 50-grain sandpaper rubbed against a wall20:25
nuvolariso hopefully his voice is the 2nd voice :P20:25
nlsthznnuvolari: he does all vocals...20:26
nlsthznlots of videos of Severed Fifth on youtube... :)20:26
nlsthznme likes 'em20:26
nlsthznoh, and Frugalware looks good out of the box (when it works)20:26
nuvolari:P "Severed (fif)th[roat]"20:30
nuvolariok, I'll stop20:30
nuvolarigood thing that tastes differ20:31
