gtk2-dev.tcz lists Xorg-7.6-dev.tcz as a dependency

Thanks - fixed now (and checked that Xorg-7.6-dev.tcz does not appear in any other dep files).

Juanito  Awesome work on Xorg  THANKS  8)


vesa=791 boot code forces frame buffer mode and Vesa drivers work great too

synaptics driver works great, as well as the other input drivers.


Only thing with the touchpad is, while operation is smooth with just the right balance of acceleration the features are basic.  eg double tapping and scrolling produces no input, so I guess extra features would require the full synaptics driver ?  At least the touch pad works better than it ever has

Thanks

just loaded up kvm-3.8.10-tinycore,  am wondering what is the purpose of having USR and USR_1  in the extention  ?

You might want to check you have the latest xf86-input-evdev - the latest one depends on mtdev and seems better with touchpads - if you already have that, then xf86-input-synaptics would be the way to go.

Whith the mixture of Xorg 7.6 & 7.7 dev dep's I wasn't doing so well.  Despite attempting to match the build dep lists posted on Xorg's development site (which didn't match tc) I always appeared to be one or two deps short or one which conflicted.  I built a few deps to assist but I think I need to set up the system as if preparing to build the full Xorg, that is where I'm at with it.     I think the last of the Xorg7.6 deps have been removed from my system, so am almost ready to have another stab at it.   

But don't wait for if you need this, in the meantime I'm not giving up on it
:)

Uploaded - it seems vesa would be used in preference?

Code: [Select]
[  1620.453] (==) Matched intel as autoconfigured driver 0
[  1620.453] (==) Matched intel as autoconfigured driver 1
[  1620.453] (==) Matched vesa as autoconfigured driver 2
[  1620.453] (==) Matched modesetting as autoconfigured driver 3
[  1620.453] (==) Matched fbdev as autoconfigured driver 4

If you have a black screen with a cross for the mouse pointer, this indicates Xorg is loaded and running.   Perhaps you need to load a windows manager like flwm_topside ?

Which version of Xorg is installed with this Alpha3? I thought this TC5.0 came with a windows manager? So just go into console and type tce-load -i flwm_topside.tcz"?

UPDATE: Actually when i try to load or install flwm_topside, it says that its already installed.

As the title says, tc-5.x is in alpha testing..

You need:

Code: [Select]
tce-load -i Xorg-7.7 flwm [or flwm_topside]
Edit: and please all check that you don't have Xorg-7.6* loaded

Thanks for the heads up,  Xorg-7.7-3d-dev  this (for it's monstrous dependency list) is what I've been using these last couple of days.    When I've finished cleaning my system I'll make another attempt and redo the nv driver.


am sending the leafpad tcz now,  but i've previously sent 22 firmware packages but only see a dozen or so uploaded,  takes a while to process huh?

Well, that Xorg-7.7 sure has alot of deps. but i just can't seem to get a higher resolution than 1440x1200 or whatever. Also i can't install or load the ATI drivers that come with xf86-video, but i remember that it is not supported yet with 7.7.

I know the deps for xorg7.7 sure looks a lot but most are very small.


firmware-radeon is pending the nod to upload to the repo, thereafter you'll need radeon drivers for your card

The ati driver is still pending for Xorg-7.7

By default Xorg will fall back to the vesa driver, you could try xf86-video-modesetting - check /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see what gets loaded/used.
