[Solved] waitforX with Xorg7.7
« on: December 25, 2020, 11:49:59 AM »
Hi, I want to run jwm at boot.

My onboot.lst resides on my hdd in my laptop. And contains the following:
Code: [Select]
graphics-5.4.3-tinycore64.tcz
Xorg7.7.tcz
jwm.tcz
kmaps.tcz

I have installed tc64 with core2usb and therefore use syslinux bootloader. My bootcodes are
Code: [Select]
waitusb=10
tce=UUID=...
kmap=...

Some specs are Lenovo L450 Thinkpad, 4GB RAM, 64bit architecture, Intel HD graphics 5500 and legacy boot.

When I boot, everything works fine unless I get the message failed in waitforX. I end up in a high resolution command prompt and if I run startx jwm starts fine.
If I execute the first line of cat .xsession the screen turns black (backlights are on) and I have to hardreset.

I tried to boot with vga=791 and 795 respectively and the results were unchanged.

I neither want wbar nor aterm. I don't need those to work right?
Do you have any suggestions?

Adding xf86-video-intel should improve the experience. You're currently on the unaccelerated modesetting driver.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
