Possible fix for JWM blackened icons in 24bit colour in Lupu. Please test. It is certainly possible that this could break something else.

Cheers

PostPosted: Wed 31 Mar 2010, 11:19    Post subject: xorg black screen of death  

Hi guys, having to use Xvesa at the moment as when I try to test Xorg, all I get is a black / blank screen.

Otherwise, things look good.

I think I had the same problem with Upup - which may be why I switched to Dpup - which I've been running very happily now for a few months.

I'm using a really old laptop mind, a Samsung X05. Which has an Intel Extreme Graphics 2 integrated graphics.

Any more information required? or anything I can do to help?

Regards, Jon

black screen

Look in the quirky13 thread in BUGS.
The issue is handled and solutions proposed.

Thanks for that pointer to here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=54021&start=30

Basically the same procedure in Lpup - had to search for the two driver files, as they're not in the same folders as the ones that Barry mentioned.
But am now using Xorg in Lpup, so yay.
Thanks again,
Jon.

Beem, but if one read the last post in that thread then it is not as easy as you say.

Actually, for those who report black screen with the 'intel' driver, or hang or whatever, you can manually set the 'i810' driver as default.

If you can get to the desktop with the 'vesa' driver, you will find the 'i810' driver here:

/usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/drivers-alternate

...copy 'i810_drv.so' to /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/drivers, and delete 'intel_drv.so'.

There is also another file that you will find in here:

/usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/drivers-alternate/i810

...you need to copy that out and replace the current one at /usr/X11R7/lib.

After that, if you exit to the prompt then run 'xorgwizard', it will use the 'i810' driver.

...if you are game to try that, let me know if it works!


Hi Barry, just to let you know that this does work - but on Lpup, haven't tried it on Quirky yet. The driver files aren't in the folders you mention in lpup but were easy enough to find. So far, so good.


so where are they. What exactly are one supposed to do?

Hi, sorry, could have been more helpful.

OK - so the file you want to get rid of, intel_drv.so, is in

/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/

I then copied i810_dri.so from
/usr/lib/dri/i810.so
to
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/

and renamed it i810_drv.so

That appears to be working for me - if I've done anything stupid, I'm sure people will help out. Very Happy

darwinev0lved thanks indeed.

I did dl the lupu002 again to another computer to see what did happen to that one but typically of me I even failed to boot it. Maybe the iso had errors.

I test again tomorrow.

I installed both puppy431std and AntiX8.5-prefinal and they both boot ed and worked very well so something was not done correctly when I sat up the lupu-002 subdirectory. Some glitch.

Edit

Then I saw lupu-003 and dl that one and made a subdir and extracted and changed the menu.lst and tried to boot it but failed that one too and booted puppy431std and that one booted as expected.

What am I doing wrong in code. Is lupu less tolerant to how the code looks?

Quote:
title puppy431

root (hd0,0)
kernel /puppy431/vmlinuz psubdir=puppy431

initrd /puppy431/initrd.gz


title Puppy Linux 4.3.1
kernel (hd0,0)/puppy431/vmlinuz PMEDIA=satahd PDEV1=sda1 psubdir=puppy431

initrd (hd0,0)/puppy431/initrd.gz



title lupu-003

root (hd0,0)

kernel /lupu-003/vmlinuz psubdir=lupu-003

initrd /lupu-003/initrd.gz


title antiX-M8.5-prefinal frugal ( rootfs=/dev/sda2 homefs=/dev/sda2 )
kernel (hd0,0)/antiX/vmlinuz fromhd=/dev/sda1 fromiso=/antiX-M8.5-prefinal.iso lang=us vga=791

initrd (hd0,0)/antiX/initrd.gz

boot


Both versions of code for puppy431 works but the pupu-002 or lupu-003 failed

is it the - that is forbidded or something?

Subject description: Bad delta file?
 

I downloaded the lupu delta file to convert the lupu-002.iso file to lupu-003.iso and it crashed with an error message of a bad checksum.
Both file checksums were correct as given from the forum.
So I guess I will have to download the complete lupu-003.iso file then.
This is the first time this has happened with using a delta file to update an iso or devx file.

So are we debugging/testing lupu2 or lupu3?
This is confusing!
Especially the part of the post that says:
Do Not Download.

Replaced my frugal install of 002 with 003 and a new fresh save file.Noticed that my wired dsl connection has been dropping at every reboot, using SNS. Planning to try other wizard at next reboot to see if there is a difference.

I've installed the following pets that work correctly......Htop, Opera 10.10 and Ttuuxxx's Pup-Shots screenshot utility.

I thought I'd give my install the Ubuntu look............ Smile
