Subject: rossa Xdisp bricked 

"bricked" is to mean that it has the functionality of a brick and can be tossed. But rossa seems to have just gotten some software config corruption. I spent a couple hours reinstalling SL7 today as per my previous elog notes and the X display seems to work as before.

i.e. it was fine with the default setup, except for the ole "X chrashes if the mouse goes to left side of screen". As before, I

  1. blacklisted the nouvaeu driver (which is used by default)
  2. download the NVIDIA driver as per the link
  3. run its installation from the no-X terminal

left side of screen is safe again

This time I installed SL7.6 and followed the K Thorne wiki. But its having trouble installing cds-root because it can't find root.frown
