I have just installed VL an old Compaq M700. As a linux newbie I thought the installer was great, I just had to keep hitting next.
However, while booting I get the message "Failed to start the X server, It is likely that it is not setup correctly". During configuration I was offered a choice of two sets of drivers, I guess I picked the wrong one.
By using Ctrl, Alt F2 I can get into text mode. But what do I do next? How do I reconfigure X server so it completes the boot.
I found an earlier thread about a similar problem with a Thingpad, but it did not quite answer this questions
