[SOLVED] Amilo L7320 won't start xorg

Good afternoon,
I have just installed Arch Linux 32 on my old Fujitsu Amilo L7320 to discover that xorg will not start. I have the required openchrome driver installed and yet I cannot do anything to get xorg to start.
Thanks in advance

How are you trying to start it?  Do you have a greeter installed, or are you trying to start it as a user using 'startx'.  If the former, your logs will be in /var/log/Xorg.0.jpg, if the latter it'll be in ~/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log.  Please copy out anything interesting (or the entire file if you're not sure) and post it here.

Thanks for your response.
I am starting xorg through startx in the command line. At the bottom of the log it says the following:
"Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration"
This seems to be the only error in the file, after this the server is terminated.
Edit:
There is another error several lines above. This error reads:
"CHROME(0): Unable to map the frame buffer."

I have fixed the issue! After finding this forum post (https://www.linuxquestions.org/question … 175664747/), I solved the problem by adding "iomem=relaxed" to my kernel parameters. Thanks for your help
