I'm running TC with Fluxbox and xvesa. CTRL-ALT-DEL and CTRL-ALT-BACSPACE is closing xvesa and returning me to terminal. Who is managing this and how can I disable it?

Hi mbertrand
Open your  ~/.xsession  file and add  -nozap  to the  Xvesa  startup command. Then restart X and see if that helped.

I had tried that and Xvesa does not load anymore.

/usr/local/bin/Xvesa -br -nozap -screen 1024x768x24 -dpi 96 -shadow -mouse /dev/input/mice,5 -nolisten tcp -I >/dev/null 2>&1 &.

By the way I have this after xvesa
export XPID=$!
waitforX || ! echo failed in waitforX || exit

So I get ' ! echo failed in waitforX'

Maybe you made a typo? Make a copy of the file, remove all lines except the xvesa line, remove everything after -I, and run it. That way you'll see any error messages.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I put in .xsession

/usr/local/bin/Xvesa -br -screen 1024x768x24 -dpi 96 -shadow -mouse /dev/input/mice,5 -nolisten tcp -nozap

and it does not start. Typing startx does nothing and no ouput. If i remove -nozap then it starts.
I'm running TC 5.4

Could be that old Xvesa does not support nozap? Is it listed in -help?

No it is not listed but why would we be using old Xvesa. It as never been updated. I see it is dated 2011.

V5.4 is very old and unsupported.  We are on V8.0 now.

Ok I haven't realized we where that old! But we can't update without big changes. So I guess there is no other way? xmodmap?

Hi mbertrand
It seems that from versions 4 through 8 the Tinycore repositories all have 2 versions of Xvesa available, except for TC5
which is the version you are running. One is the original Xvesa which was part of Tinycore base and the other is an updated
version. I would try grabbing one of the newer versions from one of the other repositories and renaming it to avoid any
conflicts. It has no dependencies. Just get the  .tcz  and  .tcz.md5.txt  files and rename them to  Xvesa-New, then place
them in your tce/optional directory. Change the  Xvesa  in your  onboot.lst  file to  Xvesa-New. Reboot and the new version
should be running.
