The gnome-terminal.tcz extension also doesn't display the bad behaviour as aterm.  It has other bad points (and btw it is missing dependency libffi5.tcz, but even after providing that it won't launch from the icon on wbar.  I had to launch it using sudo, from aterm.)

gnome-terminal and vte-gtk3 recompiled and posted - thanks for reporting this

[juanito] my apologies, I modified this post rather than quoting it and can't get it back  :(

Juanito, thanks!  No, graphics-KERNEL was not loaded!  I have added it to onboot.lst, and it works, and there is no visual corruption now with aterm!

The performance seems good on this chip.

I tried the same on the older Atoms that I have.  Performance is not good on those, so I think I'll use xf86-video-intel on those, and the modesetting driver on this one.

Hi dspence
Instead of using  tt  tags please use  code  tags. This will still preserve spacing as it too uses a monotype font in addition to
adding scroll bars for longer printouts.

Rich: Sorry!  I'll try to remember to use code tags in future.

I tried rxvt, and it had the same problem as aterm.  I went back all the way to the Tiny Core 4 extension repository and got xterm.tcz, and it was mostly okay, so there's a chance I would have used that one.



pq5190362: Thanks for the info!  It looks like the modesetting driver is easier than that to get running, though.  Juanito's solution of not loading xf86-video-intel, but loading graphics-KERNEL, worked for me, without needing configuration files.

There is no "not loading xf86-video-intel BUT loading graphics-KERNEL".

The reason xf86-video-intel did not work very likely is due to you not having installed graphics-KERNEL.

So, since you have installed graphics-KERNEL now, you might also want to re-install xf86-video-intel and compare it with xf86-video-modesetting.

And, yes, not installing xf86-video-intel results in xf86-video-modesetting automatically loading since it is built into xorg-server. The configuration file allows you to have xf86-video-intel installed but forcing xf86-video-modesetting to load instead of xf86-video-intel (i.e. using xf86-video-modesetting without uninstalling xf86-video-intel).

pq5190362,

No, graphics-KERNEL is a dependency of xf86-video-intel.  It was there, it was just not loaded anymore after removing xf86-video-intel from onboot.lst.  I added it on its own, and now the modesetting driver works.

Then maybe graphics-KERNEL should be made a dependency of Xorg-7.7-3d or even xorg-server, since xf86-video-modesetting is built into xorg-server.

It is a relatively big file, and many Xorg users do not need to load it. Generally optional dependencies are listed in info files.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
