Subject description: lspci information
 

Here is the lspci information for your use. I have tested also Dougal's changes for 800 x 480 resolution with Puppy 2.14R 1.01 and had some success.

Lobster, would you mind doing a little test.

1. Boot Barebones Dingo alpha4 with "puppy pfix=ram" boot parameter, then
2. choose 'Xvesa' for the video (not Xorg).
3. Place the attached file (gunzip it first) at /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/
4. Exit from X, run 'xorgwizard'.

and put in there too

Find out if it works with the 'nv' driver. I mostly need to know if that driver will work as-is or whether it needs any other file. You can find out about this by examining the Xorg log file at:
/var/log/Xorg.0.log.


no such file created

Also, if 'nv' was successfully chosen, then /etc/X11/xorg.conf will have it, as per your previous post


when running xorgwizard no horizontal or vertical hz was set

Lobster,
Oops, sorry, I made a mistake in my instructions. You needed to have the 'xorg_xorg_base' and 'xorg_xorg_servers' packages also installed.

Well, I'll put the 'nv' driver into the 'xorg_xorg_servers' package, so you can test the next release of Dingo and find out if the nv driver works okay, without having to install anything extra.

Dougal has suggested that 'dmidecode' be used to identify the Classmate and the eeePC.

However, Intel have used a standard BIOS without any product or vendor information, so dmidecode does not return anything that can be used to identify it as a Classmate.

What about biosdecode? nothing from that either?

If thinking of adding another set of icons for Dingo Beta . . .
Warren has reminded me of the stylish and background independent
glass icons . . .

Lobster, excellent! I've been stingy, only putting in X servers that I have tested, now also the 'nv' driver. So, /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/drivers now has these (in the xorg_xorg_servers PET package):

i740, intel, neomagic, nv, sis, trident, vesa.

Anyone else want their Xorg server included for the next Dingo release?

Note, if Xorg cannot find a specific server for the video hardware, it falls back to 'vesa', but that lacks hardware-acceleration, meaning your display will be a bit sluggish -- which you might not notice on a fast CPU.

Dougal, no, I don't see anything from biosdecode that is helpful either.

Please add 'nsc' and 'amd' (if available) for the StarBox thin clients.

I think that vesa is sufficient for those of us "blessed" (!) with an ATi card that needs their propriety driver. But is there a solution to this screen resolution conundrum?

Before installing fglrx (via MU's 3DCC) all Puppies I have tried behave the same: the video probe detects that the correct resolution is 1440x900, it buils xorg.conf correctly but then displays at 1024x768!

Is this inevitable? Or is there something that might improve it?

The fact that things are bigger than they should be isn't as big an issue as the impact that the wrong aspect ratio has. I appreciate that until the correct driver is used that there'll be no acceleration, but looking right out of the box would be a real winner.

Okay, I've added 'nsc' and 'ati' and 'atimisc' -- I don't know what that last one is for, but it seems something to do with ati.

PostPosted: Tue 01 Jan 2008, 16:17    Post subject: help page that works with and without javascript  

In the help page I have converted all the selection items to link anchors so that when javascript is not available they can be seen. When js is avaialble then it converts the anchors into a selection control as the original help page had. It works in opera, seamonkey, netsurf, dillo, elinks.

Elinks is now much more advanced than elinks-0.11.1.pet. Could some kind soul make a pet please.

I don't know anything about video driver/needs really, but from your list of included drivers I might be lucky already! I'm hoping to download Dingo soon in order to test some software I'm developing.

The three pretty much ancient laptops my family use for everything (DVD playing, program development, whatever...) are:

Compaq Armada 110 with Trident Cyberblade il / AGP 2x
Dell Latitude CPx and CPt with NeoMagic 256ZX
IBM Thinkpad 240 with (I think) NeoMagic 128XD

So I guess the neomagic and trident Dingo inclusions should work?
