Re: Questions

Hi Darald,

You mention that your main problem is an xorg / nvidia issue.
What flavor and version of linux are you running (sorry if I missed that earlier)

In many cases this type of issue is caused when a kernel update occurs.
A simple initial fix is to backup your xorg.conf file, then delete it.

After a reboot you should be up and running on a default xorg setup.
If this still doesn't work, and you have the proprietry nvidia drivers installed, uninstall them remove any xorg.conf and reboot.

Once you have X running again, using your normal package manager, or hardware driver installer if available, REMOVE the nvidia drivers.
Once you have applied the remove, you can reinstall them and things should be looking better.

If need be run nvidia-settings (or similar) and reconfigure your multiple monitors.
It may be possible to reuse your original xorg.conf, or not. Depending on what changes have occured during the upgrade.

If you have a debian based system (linux mint, ubuntu etc) contact me off list and I should be able to help more.

I've managed to really borc my main system so I am thinking that I would just do a reinstall. So I would redo the root partition and in the past I also did the var area as well.

Where are the files for LedgerSMB stored?

The files for LedgerSMB are usually in /usr/local/ledgersmb/ but can be installed anywhere else.

If PostgreSQL is up and running you should try to take a logical backup before you do anything.  You can do this by:

sudo postgres pg_dumpall > /tmp/mypgbackup.sql
cp /tmp/mypgbackup /home/myuser/

Then it should be relatively safe as long as you store the backup.

Database recovery can be a tricky thing from just files.  Having a logical backup is really nice if things go haywire.

When I use the command (on a root console (I think its called)) it tells me :

sudo: postgres: command not found

When I do a reboot or a halt it does say that postgres 9.3 is being halted in the shutdown sequence so I don't know what's the issue here.

My system problem seems to be somehow connected to xorg.conf and nvidia driver somethings. (It doesn't help that I'm running a 4 monitor system as it makes for a very non-standard setup file(s)!)

Thanks for the help!!
