Re: Ramdisk images are too large.

Okay so here is a log of mkinitramfs from a small ramdisk and a big ramdisk plus a diff between. I'm sure this is due to the config. But I checked it and the hooks were empty so it must be getting it from somewhere else or some other default. Copying module directory kernel/drivers/net (excluding ap...

Re: How to solve the login loop issue?

Okay I solved it. It was the .Xauthority file. It must have got ruined when Xorg failed to start on the later kernel. It was tied to root. Had to reset it to my account. I knew it had to be something simple. Since I could still log in as guest. And the desktop was fine. Which was bizarre since I had...

Re: How to solve the login loop issue?

Maybe you find a hint in the following thread. Thanks. I've read through it but nothing stands out. Apart from the render acceleration I can test off. Also, I've managed to break my Ubuntu 12.04 now. Right now it too is going into a login loop for some reason, loading up a guest session, then retur...

How to solve the login loop issue?

So. After the reminders I decided to upgrade my Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04. It gave me a warning about graphics since by then I would have replaced my 5450 with an R7 250 by then. So I cloned it first to test to avoid breaking my present install. And break it did. I never did get it back into a working s...

Re: Ramdisk images are too large.

Fantastic, you have found the difference between fhe small and big initial ramdisk. Do we need the /usr directory in the ramdisk? I think we do in the bigger one. It's hard to tell but the small files in the root are symlinks to places in /usr. In particular /lib links to /usr/lib. For whatever rea...

Re: Ramdisk images are too large.

Do you mean, that you have booted Fienix with the kernel 5.13 with a small ramdisk created from Ubuntu 12.04? If yes, then you are responsible for creating the next inital ramdisks now. :-D Yes! LOL. :-D I tested it tonight to make sure. Don't know how it's working fine for me. All I can say is tha...

Re: Ramdisk images are too large.

No, I haven't noticed it till now. I create the initial ramdisk on ubuntu MATE 16.04.7. They work with all Linux distributions on my X1000 and X5000. I've mostly used Ubuntu 12.04 standard and they've booted fine when I tested. All initial ramdisks for the X5000 have a size of 9.8MB and for the X10...

Re: Changing Graphics board from HD 5450 to R7 240

What settings should be used in VLC to get the optimal performance with R7 240? The settings for HD 5450 did not naturally work. I can't say exactly since I haven't used in that set up. But I suspect you may need set it for software rendering somehow. Which isn't the best configuration if it uses h...
