Xvesa is 32bit only, so if you don’t want to use Xorg-7.7, you need to use Xfbdev.

If you run the first line of .xsession from the console prompt you might get more info on why Xfbdev doesn’t start.

Awesome! Thank you!

Glad you like TinyCore, but my daily driver is Arch, but when it comes to Raspberry Pi it's picore :)

I would've considered Arch if only not system.d, well and because of Xorg of course. I love using X frame buffer on Tiny core - it's such a cool concept. If I didn't need to produce programming videos on YouTube I would've dropped GUI completely. For instance my minimalist setup is just a core + wifi firmware + python/pip and that's it.
What amazes me the most in Tiny core is that you can avoid touching the core and install your packages on top of it meanwhile having a bootable USB that stores both user data in home directory and newly installed packages.

Hey guys, my python script now seems to be working properly, I've managed to download the following packages in one run:
Code: [Select]
wifi.tcz
firmware-atheros.tcz
firmware-ipw2100.tcz
firmware-ipw2200.tcz
firmware-iwimax.tcz
firmware-iwl8000.tcz
firmware-iwl9000.tcz
firmware-iwlwifi.tcz
firmware-marvel.tcz
firmware-myri10ge.tcz
firmware-netxen.tcz
firmware-openfwwf.tcz
firmware-ralinkwifi.tcz
firmware-rtlwifi.tcz
firmware-ti-connectivity.tcz
firmware-ueagle-atm.tcz
firmware-vxge.tcz
firmware-zd1211.tcz
aterm.tcz
bzip2-lib.tcz
fltk-1.3.tcz
flwm_topside.tcz
freetype.tcz
glib2.tcz
graphite.tcz
harfbuzz.tcz
imlib2-bin.tcz
imlib2.tcz
libffi.tcz
libfontenc.tcz
libICE.tcz
libjpeg-turbo.tcz
libpng.tcz
libSM.tcz
libX11.tcz
libXau.tcz
libxcb.tcz
libXdmcp.tcz
libXext.tcz
libXfont.tcz
libXmu.tcz
libXt.tcz
pcre.tcz
wbar.tcz
Xorg-7.7.tcz
Xlibs.tcz
Xprogs.tcz
firefox_getLatest.tcz
guvcview.tcz
alsa.tcz
alsa-config.tcz
pulseaudio.tcz
mplayer-cli.tcz
recordmydesktop.tcz

After I've added following boot codes to CorePure64-current:
Code: [Select]
waitusb=5 tce=sdb home=sdb opt=sdb (and a few more)which has resulted in having a distro allowing me recording programming videos for youtube:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRiZL9A1byE

Later I've managed to run my custom webcam app in python (opencv) but in both cases - for guvcview and my own app
the recorded video is a bit laggy and I guess it's because of the recordmydesktop. Anyways I'm now trying to compile
SimpleScreenRecorder https://github.com/MaartenBaert/ssr and if it works I would probably try to make a tcz package out of it.

    [EDIT]:  Added code tags.  Rich

Hi cmk
Please use  Code Tags  when posting commands and responses seen in a terminal. To use  Code Tags  click on the  #  icon
above the reply box and paste your text between the  Code Tags  as shown in this example:

[   36.176536] pcm512x 1-004d: Failed to get supplies: -517
[   36.191753] pcm512x 1-004d: Failed to get supply 'AVDD': -517[/code]

It will appear like this in your post:
Code: [Select]
