Hey. I've been away from my Amiga for a while but am now back. Discovered that Feinix had appeared and had to try immediately. The installation went fine but lightdm couldn't start. I used an xorg.conf from ubuntu 17. Then I came to login. network did not work. Had to delete dummy device and manually change the / etc / network / interfaces file. Then I could update. I have manually changed language and keybord and now have partly Danish language and Danish keyboard.
Im using kernel 5.1 rc3
Have a nice day

Hi SailorMH,

Could you please create a small FAT16 partition on your CF card and test it again?

@Musa
You’re back! Fantastic! Thanks a lot for testing Fienix and testing the kernel 5.1-rc3-3! :-)

Cheers,
Christian

Hi SailorMH,

Please post the output of dmesg if you run Fienix. Maybe there are some messages about your CF card in the dmesg output.

Thanks,
Christian

Hi Musa,

OK, I understand and the xorg.conf doesn’t work with your two graphics cards, does it?

Do you have hardware 3D acceleration with your Radeon HD6870?

Thanks,
Christian

My system boots on the Radeon 9200 and if the graphical system works it go over to hd 6870.
Yes I have hardware 3D acceleration with hd 6870. It came after I had installed all the updates. Mate tweak gave the opportunity to switch to the compiz windows manager.
