Hi everybody,

I'll try to relaunch this old thread…

Tried to install puppy 5.3.1 slacko today on my girl's Toshiba satellite 1805 with (wow!) 1GB of RAM.

As I expected it would fail when probing the xserver. As I have a working ubuntu (but: no hardware acceleration, that was broken sometimes around ubuntu 7), I mounted the hdd and copied the (known good, exept hardware acceleration) xorg.conf to puppy's /etc/X11. startx or xwin failed both.

I do attach ubuntu's the xorg.conf here - maybe somebody will find something:

Code:
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#

AFAIK the
Code:
option "nodcc"
is crucial on that machine.

As this thread has become very long: I coudnt really get clear where the most recent advice can be found. Could someone give me a hint? - NB.: Is it still valid for 5.3.1?

And another thing: ubuntu needed kernel parameters

Code:
i915.modeset=0 noapic


not to hang during the boot procedure. Looks as if this were not necessary for puppy.

BTW.: Tried puppy on a 160MB RAM PIII today - awesome!!!!

Greetings,

Wolf

Finally I ended up to use puppy "wary" - this works out of the box.
Attn.: Do not "upgrade" to Xorg 7.6, as offered by the system. That one did not work on my machine.

HTH,
Wolf
