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

Hi Alfkil,

Unfortunately you can't use hardware 3D acceleration with your graphics card. That means, some things work not so fast. Please prevent the libglamor module from loading.

Code: Select all

sudo mv /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libglamoregl.so /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libglamoregl.so.bak
Thanks,
Christian

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

Please mount the USB stick with another Linux system and rename the libglamoregl.so to libglamoregl.so.bak.

Where do I find this file? I don't see it in /lib, /usr/lib or the X1000 kernel module.

I am slowly giving up. Either my machine is about to die, or there are too many insecurities in the binaries. Just to boot the kernel only succeeds about every 3rd attempt. Driving me insane.

You can find this file in the directory /usr/lib/xorg/modules/.

@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:

Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it. I don't have so much patience as in the past, though, so I apologize up front for the obnoxiousness.

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?? I can almost always boot AmigaOS 4.1 without problems, although I get the occasional stall at the boot screen.

The CFE fail happens at the '__start()' line, when the Linux boot console is supposed to show up.

Do you boot Fienix with the following commands?

Code: Select all

setenv bootargs "root=/dev/<partition on the usb drive>  rootdelay=5"

Code: Select all

boot -elf -noints -z -fatfs usbdisk0:zImage-4.20
Have you seen any other error messages?

Which USB stick do you use?

Could you please test another USB stick?
