Hi Fogg_80,

You can’t boot SliTaz with the initial ramdisk slitaz25.gz. You need an uRamdisk for the X5000.

Code: Select all

mkimage -T ramdisk -C gzip -n 'SliTaz 25 uInitrd' -d slitaz25.gz uInitrd
Cheers,

Yes, that's strange. Maybe you have to use another device file for /dev/input/mice.
I try mouse0 and nothing news in that. I got mouse. :(
I will take a break and maybe try to make some room on my hd so I can try Suse
Thank for your help
Hi Musa,

I have the same problem but I was able to solve it today. My keyboard is connected to /dev/input/event3. I figured out the address with "cat /proc/bus/input/devices".

But the character special file /dev/input/event3 doesn't exist on SliTaz. I created it with the command "mknod /dev/input/event3 c 13 67" and after restarting of Xfbdev the keyboard works again.

Cheers,
Christian

in case I want to try with the X5000, what I need and what commands I have to give. Since I have problems with USB ports I tried to burn a cd with the kernel and the dtb inside and can read it without problems with "load scsi". Any suggestions ?

P.S. I have downloaded slitaz25 from your site.
Hi Fogg_80,

Please look in the following thread: SliTaz PPC Linux (X5000 thread).
