I have xPud v0.9.2 on CD.

On setting PC to boot from CD in BIOS, I get the xPud splash screen.
After either pressing enter on English option, or waiting for the timer to count down I get the below error message, followed by a shell:
09 i686 cat 
Kernel command lin: noisapnp quiet
intial =/opt/media lang=en
kmap=us BOOT_image= /BOOT/xpud
Build date 26 Oct 2009 05:15:01pm
Xorg-Server 2:1.6.4-2Ubuntu4 (buildd@

Before reporting problems check http://wiki.x.org to make sure you have the latest version.
(==) Using config file "/etc/x11/xorg.conf"
(EE) No devices detected

Fatal Server error: no screens found
Please contactthe X-org Foundation Support @ http://wiki.x.org

Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information

ddx siggivingup: closing log

xinit: no such process (err no 3) server error
xauth: (argv):1: bad display name in "remove" command 
sh: no job control in this shell
On entering "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" at the shell, I get a "permission denied" or similar error.

Googling the "no screens found" error suggests on some forums people asking for the contents of the config file.

Permissions on log file (obtained using ls -l):
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root mar11 15:59

I've been able to change the permissions (using chmod) to:
-rw-r--rwx 1 root root mar11 15:59
However I'm still not able to view the log file.

PC Specs:
Mobo: Asus P5N-D (which has latest BIOS)
Intel Core2Duo E6850
4GB DDR2 Corsair
2 x Samsung 500GB HDDs
MSI GTX 560 Ti

Please advise on what I need to do to be able to get xPUD working again?
Thank you
