TCE Q&A Forum / Problem in loading GLX
« Last post by nano on January 26, 2015, 09:46:21 PM »
Hi
I load Xorg-7.7-3d in onboot.lst and remove xvesa, I want to run opengl application, but when I run them give me: "Could not initialize GLX".
I load xdemos and run glxinfo it says "Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig". in Xorg.0.log this error loged:
Code: [Select]
[    15.704] (EE) AIGLX error: dlopen of /usr/local/lib/dri/i915_dri.so failed (/usr/local/lib/dri/i915_dri.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
[    15.704] (EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
[    15.704] (II) AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI capable
[    15.704] (EE) AIGLX error: dlopen of /usr/local/lib/dri/swrast_dri.so failed (/usr/local/lib/dri/swrast_dri.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
[    15.704] (EE) GLX: could not load software renderer
[    15.704] (II) GLX: no usable GL providers found for screen 0

what's the problem?

Another question, i remove xvesa from onboot.lst, but in Xor.0.log appears that xvesa loaded and then unloaded, why?
Code: [Select]
[    15.650] (II) UnloadModule: "vesa"
[    15.650] (II) Unloading vesa
[    15.650] (II) UnloadModule: "fbdev"
[    15.650] (II) Unloading fbdev
[    15.650] (II) UnloadSubModule: "fbdevhw"
[    15.650] (II) Unloading fbdevhw

Xorg.0.log is attached.

Agreed, it is Fluffilistic.

Amazing what can be accomplished with such a small footprint.

Thanks for the tips. Alt-T shortcut, didn't know that. I've already been using the quick copy/paste cheat - pretty slick just need to rename the file afterward (F2).

My netbook has good resolution (1024x576) vs the 800x600 desktop mentioned above, but Fluff still occasionally opens up folders at the bottom of the list view - are you using Xvesa?

Would be nice if Fluff had a compact or icon view, as i rarely need all the extra info (permissions, size, date) and it requires long directory lists and the output of often unnecessary data.

Just discovered Mike's Fluff page:
https://sites.google.com/site/lockmoorecoding/downloads/fluff

For newcomers like me who are slow at discovery, the Help button along the top of Fluff has lots of useful information, including keyboard shortcuts.

TCB Bugs / Re: tc-6 Apps browser Apps button inconsistency
« Last post by coreplayer2 on January 26, 2015, 09:20:13 PM »
Minor issue but just wanted to report inconsistent performance when pressing the Apps button in Apps browser.

Button width is wider than the word 'Apps' and pressing to the right of the word Apps does not activate the button. This appears inconsistent with the other buttons, such as Search or OnBoot, where the entire widths of these buttons can be clicked to activate.

Minor as mentioned, but the lack of response when attempting to click the right side of the Apps button makes the user think the system is unresponsive or that the button is locked-out.

Seems more intuitive to select on the word "Apps" rather than  the button..

Fluff file manager: Small install which is great but comes with limitations and bugs. Any hints would be great, otherwise might just use Rox. When browsing folders, Fluff often opens new folders at the bottom with files out of view, having to rescroll to the top - any fix? It does not appear Fluff is still being developed? I don't see any simple way to create new file, so i right-click to open terminal, touch newfile, close terminal and then can use editor - cumbersome?

First, Fluff is awesome
Second, Fluff is awesome :p

A resolution issue..?  I think you'll find that trying a higher resolution will resolve your issue as it did for me.

I don't see any simple way to create new file
Off the top of my head there are at least four methods to create new files
1. " Alt + T " will bring up a terminal in the current directory, then as you said earlier "touch newfile.txt" will create a new file

2.  select a previously created default newfile in the right window pane and select copy and paste buttons to create a newfile.txt(copy) in the current directory

3. open your editor of choice and select "New File" or " Ctrl + N " for example in l3afpad

4. Easiest method; open your editor of choice and select "Save As" to save the current newfile in the selected directory

I'm sure i could think of more ways to create a newfile, simply need to look a little harder..

Micro Core / Re: How to install Dosbox into Microcore for a Pseudo-vintage DOS machine?
« Last post by amgh on January 26, 2015, 08:10:20 PM »
@Juanito : I actually first ran tce-run, I didn't run tce-load...(oops)

@centralware : Thank you for the very detailed explanation!

Before I read the last post, I did the following :

- Downloaded the latest 6.x Core-current.iso (9MB+)
- Downloaded all the new files from the latest 6.x repo
- Used VMware in Windows 7 to install the core to my USB drive
- Used Kubuntu to copy the downloaded files from the 6.x repo into the USB drive's tce/optional directory

- Now I entered tce-load - i dosbox.tcz

The output was :

libogg.tcz: OK
libvorbis.tcz: OK
libasound.tcz: OK
libpng12.tcz: OK (Initially it said that this file not found, so I downloaded this file too)
sdl-sound.tcz: OK
libmad.tcz: OK
SDL.tcz: OK
dosbox.tcz: OK

Now, when I run tce-run dosbox.tcz, I get the following message :

Exit to error: Can't init SDL. No available video device

If I still can't get this to work from here, I'll try to follow your detailed instructions.



And about my laptop :

XMG A102 (Clevo W110er base)
Core i7 3632QM
4GB RAM
GT650m
intel HD4000
Centrino Advanced 6235 wifi/bluetooth

No optical drive (hence using vmware to install to USB)

Thanks for responses.

@curaga: Unfortunately no BIOS options regarding VRAM/graphics...very old/cheap motherboard. I will probably install a pci card this spring/summer after my Ubuntu 10.04 install is EOL. For now just using Xvesa on a 19" CRT @ 800x600. Very old school, kinda grows on you actually. Good enough for TC learning, forums and browsing. That was my impression regarding Xvesa and the touchpad, thanks for clarifying. Already getting used to work-arounds and keyboard shortcuts for efficiency. PM sent to Mike regarding Fluff, but i am doubtful as he has not been active on the forum since spring 2014. Too bad, with just a few tweaks and bug fixes it could be a great default file manager.

@core-user: Thanks for the mc recommendation but i previously trialed gnome commander and found it too complicated. Presently trialing xfe but always go back to simple Fluff. Got used to Rox when using Puppy and may download that today. TC really makes me realize how quickly software choices can bloat a system.

TCB Q&A Forum / Re: boot from ntfs
« Last post by gerald_clark on January 26, 2015, 05:58:51 PM »
Remove 'quiet' from the boot options.
Then add a 'pause' option.
The system will then pause for the enter key before running login.
This gives you a chance to use shift and arrow/PG keys to scroll through output.

TCE Talk / Re: No booting with fbdev
« Last post by wysiwyg on January 26, 2015, 04:47:47 PM »
Is there a reason why Xfbdev wouldn't be able to use the /dev/fb0 file?  I don't think there's a permissions issue...  Any logs that I can see that might provide a clue as to where the problem is occurring?  Could it be a driver issue?  I'm loading the firmware-radeon extension first in the onboot.lst file.
