Thanks a lot for testing! Did you try "-z" and it didn’t work?
OK, thanks for the hint.
OK, thanks for the hint.
I tested it today. Both are working. I was able to boot with "-z" and without "-z".
You're right, I tested again with "-z" and that works. I suppose the first time, I made a syntax error elsewhere on the line ...
I wrote some instructions for installing Fienix 3.0-20200426 on a hard disk for the X5000 a month ago.

I created a tutorial video for the Fienix Open-Source Gaming series: Minetest Tutorial
Additionally, some games were recently updated to their most recent release including Blobwars, PRBoom+ and xmoto.
Please let me know if you run into any issues.

For anyone else using an unsupported graphics card (I have a 7750), I thought I would post how I was able to get Fienix working correctly.
1) Copy /usr/lib/fienix-gpu-bandage/xorg.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf (just to boot -- I did it from another distro I had installed)
2) Log in as root
3) In /usr/share/glib-2.0/org.mate.background.gschema.xml change the value of "background fade" from true to false
4) Run glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/
5) Log in as fienix
6) In the menu System/Preference/Personal/Startup Applications, turn off Redshift (I also turn off Blueman since my machine doesn't have a bluetooth card)
These changes are all related to the graphic card and not problems with Fienix, per se.
Hope this helps anyone else with an unsupported graphics card!

If you want to try out the new theme and tell me what you think, I packaged a "draft candidate" .deb that you can download here. After you install it, go to Control Center, Appearance, and select "Fienix Default".
Both this proposed theme and the current theme, called Materia, are "Material Design" compliant themes (Material Design is a design language - mostly flat, simple shapes, responsive interface, etc.), so they're somewhat similar, but feel free to let me know if you like Materia better, or if you have any other feedback!

Thanks to EXL, the developer of the open-source NXEngine, for committing changes so it builds on PowerPC. Both the engine and the game data (released by Studio Pixel as freeware) are in the repository. Just install the package "cavestory", and if you experience any issues please let me know!
