Usually you don't need to run xorgsetup, it should work out of the box. What happens if you just startx?

tuxbg 09-28-2012 10:03 AM

There's no problem with startx ,the problem is that error,i know that i don't need xorg.conf for kms

adamk75 09-28-2012 10:37 AM

If 'startx' works, what exactly are you trying to accomplish?


flank'er 09-28-2012 11:51 AM

well, I have slackware64-14.0RC5 but with kernel 3.5.4 and with internal video card ATI RS780L [Radeon HD 3000]. I don't have this problem.

adamk75 09-28-2012 11:56 AM

tuxbg, the problem is just with xorgsetup? So don't use xorgsetup. It's pretty useless anyway, especially for you as you say 'startx' works just fine.

Ok but is strange that i cant generate xorg.conf,anyway i'm very happy with that Slackware release,it's very stable,like usual.
To not write a new topic can SLackware boot "/" in ram i found this
