Hi
I've tried ub-dCore on 2 pcs:

2nd on a public library with an intel gpu:

xorg-all
Xprogs
alsa-modules-3.8.13-tinycore
alsa-utils

I'll look into this today.

Is this the same behavior you are seeing in regular dCore?  I have an intel video card on one pc, and with either xorg-all or xorg-vesa in both dCore's the mouse and keyboard freeze after startx and the desktop appears.  However, with a larger package set installed, all is well.  That seems to say there is a dependency needed.  I have kernel-all-3.8.13 loaded.

I have ad to hard reboot about 5 times now trying to isolate the missing dep for my intel box.  I will try the 3.8.10 kernel again because this did not happen until recently though if installing more packages fixes it, there is a missing startup script command or dep likely at issue.

I replaced the troublesome machine with a p3 one, but not after changing video cards made my HD ubuntu install not boot into x without freezing.  And also earlier when replacing an ATI card for the intel one, Ubuntu froze when booting into X.  It required the "X -configure" command to create an xorg.conf file to get it to work.

But as the latest build of Xvesa words with Debian, I am considering weaving it into the existing structure if it can be done cleanly and allow X desktops for those who otherwise have trouble with either dCore Debian/Ubuntu or their proper HD installs.

I am very interested in getting Xorg in dCore to at least work the same as in Debian/Ubuntu.  But with limited hardware to test and with all the situations that Xorg requires a bit of manual configuring, I have uploaded Xvesa as an available import.  Works here on my box, surely there are improvements to be had.  At least with the folks can have a usable graphic desktop on machines where Xorg is troublesome.  I have posted it's own thread for any discussion of Xvesa in dCore.

Hi  Jason,

Yesterday I prove ub-dCore and the first impression is fantastic, I want to continue because it was very simple to start with it, the next is configure it with the same configuration I have in dCore.

The steps was: in boot:
Quote
###ub-dcore50###
title ub-dcore Linux 5.x prueba
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /boot/uc5/vmlinuz quiet loglevel=3 nozswap tce=sda1/ubdc5 desktop=flwm_topside
    initrd /boot/uc5/ub-dCore.gz

create /mnt/sda1/ubdc5

create /mnt/sda1/ubdc5/sceboot.lst with:
Quote
Xprogs
xorg-all
flwm_topside
wbar

copy the above four sce's to /mnt/sda1/ubdc5/sce

and reboot

Then I loadsce from ubuntu firefox and xfe. All this was made in maxim 15 min. ¬°great!

In reference to my machine where the mouse and keyboard freeze on starting X, it was caused by backing up files in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d.  Removing them from my backup fixed the issue.
