Re: Linux X1000 newbie

I use exactly those command to boot Fienix. I am waiting for a CF card in the mail to see, if that improves the boot stability. I do see errors sometimes when loading the zimage. But it doesn't seem to influence the boot depandability if they appear or not. Is it true, that someone has succeeded boo...

Re: Linux X1000 newbie

Thanks. It works now. I was expecting some kind of install procedure, but I guess I just copy the content to a suitable ext4 partition. If only there was gparted included with the distro ;). One more question: The actual kernel boot from CFE fails almost 9 out of 10 times. Is that standard procedure...

Re: Linux X1000 newbie

@xeno74 Ok, I can max get the kernel to actually boot from CFE every third (1/3) times. That's outrageous! But anyway, I can boot up some initial graphic interface now, except that I am now faced with a login box, that cannot be circumvented. What should I guess for username and password?? :o :shock...

Re: Linux X1000 newbie

The problem is, I can't get the desktop environment to startup at all. Just black screen at the end of boot sequence.

Re: Linux X1000 newbie

I am pretty sure it is an R7 240 of some sort. Is that compliant?

Re: Linux X1000 newbie

Ok, I have managed to get the USB to a readable state. I can read the directory tree, and I have copied the kernel module. Not sure why 'dd' behavior was so strange. Apparently it just took a lot of time and multiple tries. I can now load and boot the kernel from CFE. Again it took multiple failed a...

Re: Linux X1000 newbie

So far I am stuck trying to get the image onto the usb. Somehow Ubuntu on my Mac Mini goes into pieces when I run the dd command. When getting explicit output, I can see, that it slows drastically down around 2.7 GiB. I have only once had it actually finish at 7.0 GiB, and still the partition came o...

Linux X1000 newbie

Hi all, I have decided to try and install Linux on my X1000 to give it some new life. I have so far failed miserably. From various threads in here I have downloaded kernels: 4.16 4.19 4.20 5.0 As far I can see, the 5.0 version doesn't come with a Ramdisk file. Is this intentional? Ok. So I am doing ...

Re: Various requests

Updated classes seems to have solved random crashes in BananaBar.

Now, another related request: What is the standard method (if any) of figuring out, what gfx chipset a certain screen/view is running on?
