I reloaded the X window system from the CDROM to the system drive. I saw that XF86 has stubs and indicates it is working again? I know that X -configure tries to run my old XF86Config file. I am modestly familiar with XF86 system setup I will try to see if it is working. The information in my old system data is wrong and the whole system trips over it. once i know that is the problem I can try to address it. I will look to see if xf86 is working. but X -configure does not have a default I understand. It should have rewritten a Xorg.conf but it did not. it did delete it though. but then it picked up my XF86Config file and tried to excute that.

this is modestly insane. the problem with modprobe is it DOES NOT WORK AT THE COMMAND LINE. The other problem is my mouse is insane. non functional. it is plugged in and was working for 9.0 but I cant get gpm to see it at all.

ok I have worked on the problem some. I cant find the invoke script or program for XF86 xf86 or anything I could find. there are stubs loaded in the X data. so I need to know how to configure the system to see my openchrome_drv.ko I tried putting it in the kernal load file all it did was the tools could no longer see it. so my experiments really did not work I also have to fix the initscript problem too. it is clear that the init sequence has changed. and is not compatible. But I need to tell the system to use openchrome the builtin is OPENCHROM9HC. It would be nice to have a working configure executable or script. X -configure now just lists all the drivers but not openchrome anymore.

1. I need to configure my system by hand. it is really hozed for all kinds of reasons. I have too much data on the system to reformat and start over. I dont care about dead code. it is the scripts I must fix. X and Xorg both malfunction.

I need to edit various system files correctly. my man files are confused. I get references that dont have man pages. sigh. I know how to fix it.

I just need to get some tool working correctly I will try to boot my other system and see what state it is in but that is atick unless I boot from CDROM

I used the CDROM to boot my other system. Its the default configuration. X -configure will run without overt errors but the screen will freeze with a dead screen no graphics just a blank screen that does not respond. HARD REBOOT!!!

my dedicated system is still unhelpful and is broken. it never gets to this condition

Try to switch to XAA as acceleration method an disable everything in xorg.conf which has to do with acceleration. If this works you can play around with the settings. ;-)

Well I need a better description. in my xorg.conf I dont have ANY accelleration. I have lots of thangs that init mouse, keyboard, monitor and openchrome. but this is the stuff the system X-configure put in the xorg.conf.new. I need more information to debug this problem. it has piece and parts that are invovled and I dont know anything about them. it will not allow me to type xinit and only boots with the X -configure event.

Hint: man openchrome

xorg.conf
Code:
Section "Device"
        Option "AccelMethod" "XAA"
        Option "EnableAGPDMA" "false"
        Option "ExaNoComposite" "true"
        Option "NoAccel" "true"
        Option "NoAGPFor2D" "true"
        Option "NoXVDMA" "true"
        Option    "SWCursor"    "true"
        Driver    "openchrome"
EndSection
Of course "ExaNoComposite" will only have some effect if you choose "EXA" as "AccelMethod".

I will paste that into my xorg.conf. Any port in a storm. I will be back with the results, good, bad or indifferent.

the bad news is no matter what I do. the video freezes with a blank screen. just cant find any way to invoke fvwm or even something else. That is why I originally compile Xorg and openchrome. I get "openchrorm does not have openchromedata structure" as an error. so I dont know exactly what the real problem is so I cant address it.

Hm,
I have a Notebook with some VIA graphics and tried to compile Xorg-Server and I also got a blank screen. Using the package from my distro it works. So one thing you could do is to look at the Archlinux packages and how they compile stuff. Go to the Archlinux site (http://www.archlinux.org) search for the package, click on "View SVN Entries" and click on PKBUILD. There you can see the configure flags and the other stuff they use to compile the package.

that is hopeful. but I did replace the configuration from the cd. X -configure finds openchrome and the X -config /root/xorg.conf.new causes my system to freeze and reboot is the only option.

I reinstalled the whole system disk sequence and it still locks up.

my machine has been down for a while. damn near forever. but I have OPENCHROME and Xorg the problem seems to be that I never have the correct parts to go with the version of Xorg and/or OPENCHROME. it is not clear to me what has happened because i have had peculiar things happen to my windows system.

here is the Xorg.0.log

the bad news is that web page is locked and wants me to login with a password but does not allow my access. I really need help with the error which is apparently some set of other utilities that I dont have any information about

(EE) LoadModule: Module /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/openchromedrv.so does not have a openchromedrvModuleData data object.

I think I have chrome9HC and upgraded to slackware 13.0 and still no joy. I cannot delete the contents of my hd. it contains work that i have been working on for some years. so I got into this change of paragdim. I will compile any peices if I know that I will get an improvement. I really want to run X windows not KDE or any other.
