Gparted won't start on some computers

Post by ajax » 14 Sep 2010, 21:50

SystemRescueCD (1.5.8) boots fine and the wizard starts the GUI/X11 environment. However, when Gparted is launched it briefly displays and then closes immediately. It behaves as if some kind of error is encountered that prevents it from running.

Any ideas?

Start gparted from the shell and check for a errormessage.

Its possible that there is a memory problem. If you have enough and find no other problem use memtest.

p.s. if X crashes try framebuffer at boot.
