    GRUB should not have sda reference either.
    Funny that fdisk listed sda ... anyway glad your up and running.

    Hi again gunbladeiv. Get 'X' going?

    To add to your Crux ports, go here and find the ones you like. Some specialize. When you find the ones you might want, you will put its corresponding httpup or rsync info file into /etc/ports. Here's how mine looks as a reference:
    Code:
    contrib.rsync  drivers    ecarux.httpup  han.httpup  opt.rsync       xorg.rsync
    core.rsync     ea.httpup  gnome.rsync    kde.rsync   romster.httpup  yhafri.httpup
    When /etc/ports is set up, edit your /etc/prt-get.conf so it will know to use the ports you've selected. Here's an example of what your /etc/prt.conf will look like.
    Code:
    ###
    ### prt-get conf
    ###
    
    # note: the order matters: the package found first is used
    prtdir /usr/ports/core
    prtdir /usr/ports/contrib
    prtdir /usr/ports/opt
    prtdir /usr/ports/xorg
    prtdir /usr/ports/gnome
    prtdir /usr/ports/kde
    prtdir /usr/ports/ecarux
    prtdir /usr/ports/romster
    prtdir /usr/ports/yhafri
    prtdir /usr/ports/han
    
    # the following line enables the user maintained contrib collection
    #prtdir /usr/ports/contrib
    
    ### use mypackage form local directory
    # prtdir /home/packages/build:mypackage
    
    ### log options:
    # writelog enabled         # (enabled|disabled)
    # logmode  overwrite       # (append|overwrite)
    # rmlog_on_success yes     # (no|yes)
    logfile  /var/log/pkgbuild/%n.log
                               # path, %p=path to port dir, %n=port name
                               #       %v=version, %r=release
    
    ### use alternate cache file (default: /var/lib/pkg/prt-get.cache
    # cachefile /mnt/nfs/cache
    
    ### print README information:
    # readme verbose           # (verbose|compact|disabled)
    
    ### prefer higher versions in sysup / diff
    # preferhigher no      # (yes|no)
    
    ### use regexp search
    # useregex no        # (yes|no)
    
    ### run pre- and post-installs scripts; yes is equivalent to the
    ### --install-scripts option
    runscripts yes            # (no|yes)
    
    
    ### EXPERT SECTION ###
    
    ### alternative commands
    # makecommand      pkgmk
    # addcommand       pkgadd
    # removecommand    pkgrm
    # runscriptcommand sh
    Once that's done, update ports. As root:
    Code:
    ports -u
    This will take a little while. When it finishes updating ports, you will find the ports for each port and package in /usr/ports. Now you are ready to install packages. I highly recommend reading...
    Code:
    man prt-get
    ...to get familiar with the options for prt-get. To list all available packages, do:
    Code:
    prt-get -vv list
    To install for instance, samba, you would do:
    Code:
    prt-get depinst samba
    Hope this helps...

    Hi again gunbladeiv. Get 'X' going?
    X has not returning any error, but the looks is not gud as i can only startx on 8bit/4bit depth.

    To add to your Crux ports, go here and find the ones you like. Some specialize. When you find the ones you might want, you will put its corresponding httpup or rsync info file into /etc/ports.
    Thanks a lot. I have found the ports that i've been looking for!

    Hope this helps...
    Yeah, you did help me a lot dapper dan~!

    Post your /etc/X11/xorg.config and let's see if we can get it sorted. Better yet, start a new thread about this problem and post your xorg.conf. It shouldn't be hard to straighten out.
