what about this part of the xorg error:

Code: [Select]
(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such device
shouldn't he enable the framebuffer by using a vga boot code?

Only if he wants to use fbdev instead of vesa or the native driver. (or have a pretty console)

EDIT: Found 915resolution patched including your chipset here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=32462


I have the same problem trying to setup the resolution of 1024x600.
I downloaded the pet file from the link an copied to /usr/sbin

But the output of 915resolution -l is the same.

Another question: I have to manually backup the two files in /opt/.filetool.lst or there is a better way?

Thanks
Marco

Try
Code: [Select]
/usr/sbin/915resolution 50 1024 600

Thanks! It works.
And works also

Code: [Select]
/usr/sbin/915resolution -l
but even if I boot with vga=577 (1024x600x16 mode $41+$200 -> 577 dec) I get a 800x600 resolution (I guess).

framebuffer

this is my boot command:

Code: [Select]
kernel /boot/bzImage quiet tinycore tce=sda3 text vga=577

and this the entry in /home/tc/.xsession

Code: [Select]
/usr/local/bin/Xfbdev -mouse /dev/input/mice,5 -nolisten tcp -I >/dev/null 2>&1&

Are you using TC 3.0 with KMS?

Xfbdev will use whatever resolution the framebuffer has, I think, but 915 resolution can set native resolution for Xvesa regardless of framebuffer.

I'm not sure to correctly understand your sentence and the thread you linked.
Are you saying I can't get my netbook work at 1024x600 in framebuffer?

Kernel Mode Setting

I am not sure what you do not understand.
Xfbdev will use whatever resolution of framebuffer as is before starting X.
Xvesa could be "tricked" into native resolution by using 915resolution.

The thread I linked discusses native resolution in framebuffer.
No, I am not saying you can't your netbook work at 1024x600 in framebuffer.
See the link to approaches of solutions in the linked thread.
Personally I have never used uvesafb (neither patched bootloader)

Best resolution I get with vga=ask is 800x600 (which makes images look distorted on framebuffer console)

Hey guys,

My steps to work with 1024 x 600:

  • Install xorg from tce repo
  • Edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf like below. Note: keyboard is pt, in my case, and gpu "geode", so modify xorg for your system.
  • Add new line with "etc/X11/xorg.conf" to file "/opt/filetool.lst"
  • Kill X, pressing with ctrl + alt + backspace or using logout "Exit to prompt"
  • Type "startx" and hit enter
  • Success! If fail, kill X again e edit xorg.conf until fine!
  • So modify the first line of "/home/tc/.xsession" to "/usr/local/bin/Xorg -nolisten tcp &"
  • Now you can reboot and system auto load 1024 x 600

OK, so... let's put a finishing point here:

Wich is more faster and less power and cpu consuption: Xvesa or Xorg (with appropriate drivers) on a netbook with Intel 945GME ?

I usually use my netbook to browse the web, programming for the web, watch some videos and image editing with gimp and inkscape. The hardware is:

video intel 945GME
2GB RAM
250GB HD (not SSD)
All intel chipsets and RTL8101E/RTL8102E for wireless card.

What will be better (like i said in the beginning) Xvesa or Xorg? (or Xfbdev?)

Thanks!

I use tc on a laptop with Intel 945 graphics and cannot see the difference between Xvesa and Xorg-7.5 in normal use, so I use Xvesa most of the time.

Hey, I found a better way than loading 915resolution! I use thinkpad e420 which has a resolution of 1366*768 but Xvesa couldn't display that way,and 915resolution said it couldn't determine my chipset type. So I installed xf86-video-all.tcz, graphics-3.0.3-tinycore.tcz and Xorg-7.6-3d.tcz. Note that you have to download only them instead of Onboot because system may halt during loading. Then modify your onboot.lst, put xf86-video-all.tcz on top and put the others after all the default items. Then it works!
