Just recieved new CloudBook and already got X problems.
Starting CloudBook, Get to point of starting X and then it pops back to
'shell' and gives me a error message:
"Nohup: appending output to "Nohup.out" , then jumps back to startx and
then back to shell with error message, it just stays in that loop.
Until i do a ctrl-alt-del the first thing it shuts down is GDM , then
Then I go into 'recovery mode'.
There are no EE in Xorg.0.log. ( the 'vesafb' driver is what is being
use in this laptop)
It has a Via Tech CX700M2 Unichrome Pro II chipset, but there is no
Linux driver for it.
Checked out /var/log/messages :
Last entering in messages is : BlueTooth: RFCOMM ver. 1.8
Then about twenty lines that keep repeating:
oem kernel: eps: current Voltage= 812mv
eps: Current multiplier =8
Then, oem exiting on signal 15
There is no other way to reload OS on this laptop , but to pull hard
drive and put into another Laptop, reinstall OS and then put back into
the CloudBook. Then there goes the Warranty.
It will not support a External USB CD/DVD drive for booting off of.
I tryed to put a thumb drive in usb port and it prevents laptop from
booting, just locks up.
I would greatly appreicate any and all help, if I have to send it back
to Everex there will be about a three week turn around.
If I can't fix Cloudbook on my own
