I'm very new to Linux, so please go easy!
I created a Linux install on VMWare Workstation 8 in order to install a piece of software called OpenClinica. The program is Java based and depends on Apache Tomcat and PostgreSQL. (installation instructions are here: https://docs.openclinica.com/3.1/installation/installation-linux)
I followed the instructions up to 9.1.16 where I reboot the system. When the system starts up, the progress indicator goes all the way to the end and freezes. I try rebooting a couple of times but the same thing happens. So, I do some Googling and start the system in single user mode and pull out the log messages:
open /dev/fb0: no such device expected keysim, got XF86TouchPadOn: line 120 of inet expected keysim, got XF86TouchPadOff: line 121 of inet Failed to execute message bus daemon /bin/dbus-daemon: permission denied ... waiting for xserver to shutdown error setting MTTR (base = 0xD0000000, size = 0x02000000, type = 1) invalid argument (22) /usr/bin/startx: line 197: /usr/bin/xauth: permisison denied
I'm at a loss and unsure where to go next with this. If anyone coul point me in the right direction then it would be much appreciated
