Hello,
I booted a DELL Optiplex GX280 (/0G8310, BIOS A04 02/09/2005) with TCL + xorg76.
So far, everything is fine.
Only few errors (see the dmesg.txt) which can be partially seen at boot

....
[drm] initialized overlay support
[drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 128

How to stop this? (dont seems to distrurb really; is only not very clean).
If any Idea is proposed, it would be great.
In parallel, I will further search on the web for any solution.
AMD K6-IIIATZ 550MHz MB DFI K6xv3/+66
P4 HP DC7100 3GB 3GHz
Samsung NC10 boot from SD card port (via USB reader)
.. all TinyCore proofed

You should just ignore those, many screen manufacturers have such invalid EDID embedded in the screens. I don't think you can silence them with a parameter either.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
