4MLinux on SiS741GX


Hi all,


I have installed 4MLinux on an thin client HP T5720.

In console mode alle work fine but when I execute "startx" the system
don't commute in graphic mode and return in console mode as the
command startx was execute.

The installed memory is 512 Mb so I think that is sufficient.

Is an driver problem ?


Many thanks for your support

Hi,

512 MB is enough to run Firefox, Chromium, ..., just everything in 4MLinux :-)
Only Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD dedicated video drivers are available out of the box.

VESA DRIVER:
Edit your lilo.conf:
Code:
mcedit /etc/lilo.conf
Replace "vga=normal" with (for example) "vga=ask".
Apply changes:
Code:
lilo
and reboot. See also:

Hi,

I have tried the solution proposed but:

1) vga=ask don't prompt for vga mode

2) may be that startx print on screen some error message but the repaint of screen is too fast for read the messages.

Is possible to prevent the repaint of screen after startx ?


Regards

OK. We can still try both vesa (simpler) and fbdev (more complicated) X.org drivers.

Let's try VESA first. Your /etc/gpu/gpu.config file looks as follows:
Code:
# Should GPU framebuffer be enabled during the boot time ?
GPU=yes

# Should 3D support be enabled in X Window System ?
X=no

# Should compiz-like Desktop effects be enabled ?
COMP=no
Replace GPU=yes with GPU=no:

Code:
# Should GPU framebuffer be enabled during the boot time ?
GPU=no

# Should 3D support be enabled in X Window System ?
X=no

# Should compiz-like Desktop effects be enabled ?
COMP=no
Reboot your machine and try startx again.
