I googled many threads on my problem, but most of them are about proprietary drivers and black screen (although user can login blindly into tty*). My question isn't about that type of problem but the following:
I have Ubuntu 11.04, Ati Radeon HD2400 mobility video card with installed up-to-date proprietary drivers (fglrx) which works normal with Compiz.
ps aux|grep tty returns only one with X:
root 1083 5.1 7.1 296396 148148 tty7 Ss+ Oct18 54:08 /usr/bin/X :0 -nr -verbose -auth /var/run/gdm/auth-for-gdm-vTLeqW/database -nolisten tcp vt7
cat /etc/default/console-setup |egrep -v "^#"
VERBOSE_OUTPUT="no" ACTIVE_CONSOLES="/dev/tty[1-4]" CHARMAP="UTF-8" CODESET="Uni2" FONTFACE="Fixed" FONTSIZE="16" if [ -f /etc/default/keyboard ]; then . /etc/default/keyboard fi
And when I hit Ctrl+Alt+F1 am getting a blinking underscore cursor and nothing else.
I have no directory
/etc/event.d/ to search ttys in it.
Okay after a hint (to check /etc/init/tty*.conf) I realized that runlevel 3/5 didn't ran automatically:
echo $RUNLEVEL returns "" (nothing)
sudo init 5 bringed to me ctrl+alt+F* console login prompts.
But keybord works only on tty1.
ps aux|grep tty now returns one with X, and tty1:
root 1083 3.4 6.2 267172 128944 tty7 Ss+ Oct18 66:37 /usr/bin/X :0 -nr -verbose -auth /var/run/gdm/auth-for-gdm-vTLeqW/database -nolisten tcp vt7 root 2722 0.0 0.0 1872 580 tty1 Ss+ 16:40 0:00 /sbin/getty -8 38400 tty1
Second question is: Why runlevel 3/5 doesn't start automatically?
