I'll check into xorg tonight, though it is working fine here and I re-imported it yesterday.

Thanks Jason. It's entirely possible that something is wrong with my setup (always my first assumption), but it's interesting that theYinYeti is seeing a similar issue.

edit: What the hey. Re-imported xorg-all without changing anything else and re-booted. Got a desktop! Still had error messages during boot, tcWbarConf button on the Control Panel was dimmed, and wbar had 2 xterminal [sp?] icons, along with an "Import" icon and the usual TC ones. Will try playing with this and see what develops.

Sounds normal for this stage of rc.

Two X terms one is UXTerm - unicode the other is normal XTerm
tc-wbarconf is there will investigate why it is greyed on control panel. You can run from Xterm.
Many boot messages are displayed and  can be ignored.

Umm… I'll try and re-import xorg again, then. I'll do this on the real laptop this time, just in case it might help…
Have a nice day :)

No matter how many times I try, xorg-all is still a failure. But if I load-sce xorg-all and startx without rebooting, then xorg does start and work. That is, after I have run “chown root:root /tmp/.X*”.

As soon as I restart, I get that dreaded “can't run '/sbin/getty': No such file or directory” message :(
Even though I don’t see a clear relation between the message and the following “explanation”, do you think it could be because dCore is trying to auto-launch X11 upon auto-login, then X11 fails to start because of the permissions in /tmp/, then login tries again to auto-launch X11, and so on in a loop? What do you think?

And you, how do you handle this problem with permissions in /tmp/ when launching “startx”?

What is your permission on /tmp

Should be: drwxrwxrwt  root.staff  /tmp
No change. Same as Core native.

Sorry roberts, I used the wrong word. It's not a permissions issue, but rather a owner issue. /tmp is OK. It is /tmp/.X… (I don't remember the exact name) that is wrongly owned. It is owned by tc:staff whereas startx expect this directory to be  owned by root:root.
Just to leave no doubt, my dCore is completely unmodified. I took vmlinuz and dCore.gz from the ISO file, and put them on my USB pendrive. Then I just created an entry for them in my grub.cfg (Grub2).

dCore-install is now available. Use the typical import command to fetch.
dCore-install is a command line script to aid in installing dCore to pendives and frugal hard drive.
It it dervived from tc-install so operation is quite similiar. Tested zip, hdd, and frugal.
As with any installation program proceed with caution as specifying the wrong drive/partition can ruin your day.

This is a good idea, roberts! I will try this. Thank you.
