@Condobloke as you are aware I do not have windows myselfany clues ?
that's because old wizards need to sleep, I usually close down at 23-00 GMT and return between 05-30 & 07-00 GMTIt looks like Brickwizard hasn't been online for about a half hour,
After 3 years without updates and various problems now, my vote is to reinstall before more crashes/problems cause further grief and waste more time/energy. I think you're putting off the inevitable.As for reinstalling, yeah, I'm at least starting to come to terms with that reality, although it might take a few more crashes to really force me to act.
startx basically runs an Xserver (the graphical "driver") and a command which run on it, which is typically a window manager. By default the commands that are run are in ~/.xinitrc file in your home directory, or some generic system file otherwise.startsAm back now. Okay, I understand the arguments about reinstalling (although that's what I was hoping this update process would help me avoid). But right now that's a moot point, isn't it, considering its current condition? That is, right now the ONLY thing I care about is at least getting back to where I was and then going from there. So, along those lines, if there is one thing I should do now to attempt a recovery, what would it be? Will start a separate thread for this if you think it would be helpful, as now, unfortunately, I'm way beyond just dealing with freezes (in fact, it's almost like I miss the freezes now!).
PS. Would it be the StartX thing?
Okay, here's what happens. I was able to boot! That's the (very) good news. Now, the bad news is that this new version (clearly some updates DID take place) is a mess. The configuration is very awkward and it seems very buggy. I almost don't know where to begin in terms of the problems, but that's clearly the subject for a new thread, which will start shortly. In fact, one thing I will have to decide is whether to start a separate thread for each problem or try to knock if several in one..when you get to the terminal by ctrl+alt+F1 can you type inand see what happensCode:
