I agree that a fresh re-install is the best choice at this point.

Learning Finnish is not a trivial task, I grew up in Norway, next to Finland, and know it is not an easy language. My compliments!

The other Laptop I've been using has Windows in Finnish [!], and it's developed some sort of error.

Although I'm learning to speak Finnish, this kind of stuff is WAAAAY beyond my comprehension!!!

But! Hopefully, will get it going again when my girlfriend gets home from work.

SO, the answer is yes! I can use another machine!!

I was going to suggest starting again from scratch.

Would really appreciate it if you could point me at the best version for my laptop from the best download site!!

Many thanks again!

No, don't type that out, just knowing that it did not work is okay.

I don't think it is fair to expect you to solve this issue from the command line, if there was a hiccup during installation, this may only be one problem of many.

Do you have access to another computer where you can download and burn iso files?

On your phone? Wow!

It looks like there are files missing.

One more test: run command "vxconf", arrow down to "VESA", then press Enter and try "startx" again. That may give you a basic X server with a GUI that would simplify troubleshooting.

.. another nice trick with the Linux terminal is tab completion. Just for kicks, instead of typing the whole path, do:
grep '(EE)' /va and then press the Tab key, see what happens (if you see nothing, press Tab again, and it will show you what is available).
So for this example, it would be:
grep '(EE)' /va[Tab]/log/X[Tab]

Remember that Linux is case sensitive, "Xorg" is different from "xorg".

That is a nice machine, it will run Linux just great.  :)

Since the hardware should be compatible, I'm don't know why X is not running, something may have gone wrong during installation.

One way to filter out the noise is with the grep command. How about trying:
Code: [Select]
grep '(EE)' /var/log/Xorg.0.log
