Xorg 7.7-3d glitch
« on: October 16, 2019, 12:59:38 PM »
Hello I have 2009 Sony VAIO netbook VPC115WXG PCG-4T4P running at 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N280 with Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 and 1G RAM.

I installed Xorg.7.7-3d. It seems working because I deleted Xvesa. But I got this brief screen glitch everytime on start-up before going to GUI. How can I eliminate this? Is there a command to verify you are using Xorg like the loginctl but TC does not recognize this command?

Hi cute curtis
...  Is there a command to verify you are using Xorg ...
Sure. There's:
Code: [Select]
tc@E310:~/x$ ps aux | grep -i xorg
root      7781  0.0  0.4  62076 14512 tty2     Ssl+ 09:34   0:07 /usr/local/lib/xorg/Xorg -nolisten tcp
tc        9968  0.0  0.0   1708   324 pts/2    S+   16:39   0:00 grep -i xorg
tc@E310:~/x$
The first line shows Xorg is running and the command that was used to start it. The second line was the command you issued to search
for  Xorg.  If you only see the second line,  Xorg is not running.

Here's another:
Code: [Select]
tc@E310:~/x$ pgrep Xorg
7781
tc@E310:~/x$
If the command returns a number,  Xorg  is running.

That looks like some uncleared VRAM being shown. There is no way to remove that, I'm afraid. VRAM clearing is internal to the driver.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Your link was not removed. Neither of my browsers interpreted that link as an image so it wasn't visible on my machines. I removed
the  img  tags to make the link visible.

I understand. I'll tackle back my previous question, is there an equivalent command of loginctl in TC because it's not recognize or do I need a package extension for this to work?

If I understand correctly, loginctl is used to control the systemd login manager - tinycore does not use systemd, but the elogind extension does contain loginctl.

Are you saying that you'd like to know if you are running x or wayland?

No, I just want to know if I'm running Xorg or not using loginctl command.
