Solaris 10 Installation Guide for IBM BladeCenter Servers

6245431: Xorg Server Fails to Start

Description: The Xorg server might fail to start under the following conditions:

Scenario #1: This problem occurs when the IBM BladeCenter server does not own the Keyboard Video Mouse (KVM). If a mouse is not attached when the Xorg server starts, and you attempt to plug in a mouse afterward, it is not recognized and is unusable.

Scenario #2: Regardless of whether the system owns the KVM, or whether a mouse is attached, if the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file does not exist when the Xorg server starts, Xorg fails to start.

Workaround: Download and apply the latest revision of patch 118966 or install at least the Solaris 10 6/06 OS.
