Install Xorg after Xvesa
« on: May 03, 2012, 12:55:35 PM »
Hello everybody,

I'm trying to install Core + Xorg + openbox on a ThinClient HP. After starting Coreplus and install it on the Hard-disk, I uninstall all the .tcz files not needed for what I want (fluxbox, hackedbox, wifi etc ...).
I was able to uninstall all I wanted except Xvesa.tcz :

* I modified the /etc/sysconfig/Xserver file to add Xorg instead Xvesa
* I added the /etc/sysconfig/Xserver file in the /opt/.filetool.lst
* After I uninstall xvesa

After booting, I have the message "failed in WaitforX".

Do you have an idea to only install Xorg witout xvesa ?

Thanks.

Rémy

Remove Xserver from .filetool.lst
remove Xvesa.tcz from onboot.lst
tce-load -iw Xorg-7.X ( where X is your choice of  4, 5, or 6 )
If it was already installed, make sure it is included in onboot.lst.

Thanks for your reply.

I already remove Xvesa.tcz from onboot.lst.
I didn't make "tce-load -iw Xorg-7.X" because I already the Xorg-7.X.tcz file and I add "Xorg-7.X-lib" on onboot.lst file.

If I remove Xserver from .filetool.lst, the system will consider "xvesa" because at the beginning I have "xvesa" on the Xserver file. No ?

You need Xorg-7.X.tcz in onboot.lst, not Xorg-7.X-lib.
Xorg will write the Xserver file. Do NOT include it in .filetool.lst.

I re-install all Core-plus with openbox to have a good base.

After, I remove xvesa.tcz from onboot.lst. I installed Xorg-7.6 with tce-load on prompt. After launch "startx" command, the screen is blocled with a blinking underscore !!!

What do you think ? A problem of driver/firmware ? As I installed Coreplus, I have in CDE all the firmware TCZ files.

Regards.

Most probably you need xf86-video-xxx.tcz installed where xxx is your video card name. Check repository.

It's a VIAChrome9 HC3 chipset. I don't find VIA driver package in the TCZ repo.

Do you think if the the X86-video-all package can help me ?

In an other post I read a guy who was able to solve the problem (VIAchrome) with Xf86-unichrome driver. I was not able to find this driver package in the repo.
If this package is not in the repo like a TCZ file, do you know how it's possible to include in Tinycore a Linux driver ?

Thanks.

Hi rmarion36
Depending on which version of Xorg you are running
The  Xorg-7.5.tcz  extension includes  /usr/local/lib/X11/modules/drivers/unichrome_drv.so
The  Xorg-7.6-3d.tcz  extension includes  usr/local/lib/X11/modules/dri/unichrome_dri.so

I tried XORG-7.6-3D without success.

But I found xf86-video-openchrome package. With this package, the screen tried 2 ou 3 times to find an adjustment. Without success (the screen stays black after the trials) but it's better !!! It's clearly a problem of driver.

As tinycore is launched by default in graphical mode, my Tinycore is now always blocked. Do you know if it's possible to stop the graphical mode launch and go to the prompt ?

I will try to install these different TCZ files by using tce-load and not by direct copy and by hand modification of onboot.lst !!!

Thanks.

Use the 'text' boot option.
Then you can use startx to test launch X.

Use Xorg-7.6 instead of Xorg-7.6-3.d.tcz which fails on many hardware.

I used Xorg-7.6 and Xorg-7.6-3D to have the unichrome driver.

As described, i also used Openchrome driver but without success.

I try to find in internet the right driver file to add it on my Tinycore.

Hi rmarion36
Did you set up an  xorg.conf  file? When you boot in text mode, and after startx fails, enter:
Code: [Select]
less /var/log/Xorg.0.logto check the log file for errors. Page Up/Down to navigate, q exits.

You may want to try some of the options from here http://linux.die.net/man/4/openchrome in your xorg.conf. I had a case, where the openchrome driver was trying to setup a CRT monitor instead of an LCD display (ActiveDevice option on that page). Forcing to LCD worked for me.
