    CRUX 2.7... no GUI


    So I have an installation of CRUX 2.7.
    I have a working internet connection, and have even run prt-get sysup.
    I still can't get a GUI going.
    Here is the output of my /var/log/Xorg.0.log in .txt form.
    Code:

    I know that Dapper Dan got a CRUXBuntu kernel cracking, and seems to be working well... and I'm thinking about doing the same thing.
    But any help on this?

    Hi jayd512 - I'm probably not going to be much help as most systems I have are nvidia based rather than intel ... is your user in the video group ? does this help ?

    Jay, maybe a dumb question: Is xorg-xf86-video-intel showing as installed?

    Code:
    (EE) intel(0): No kernel modesetting driver detected
    Looking over Jonathan183's link I had a look at my kernel configuration. In kernel > Device Drivers > Graphics support > Direct Rendering Manager there is "Enable modesetting on intel by default" right under "i915 driver." I wonder if that needs to be set.

    The 'i915' is already built-in as a module.
    I can check on the xorg-xf86-video-intel

    My "Enable modesetting on intel by default" is separate from i915 and appeared as though it could be set as a module. Does it automatically get enabled when building in i915?

    a problematic release?

    When I last installed crux (4 or 5 years ago) the overall install went fine, but I do remember running into quite a lot of dependencies that kept me busy some time. Otherwise, no problems were encountered. I've still not gotten around to trying 2.7 yet but from all the comments that I've read on it so far, it seems to be more problematic than most of the previous releases. Would you guys agree that's an accurate statement?

    Hope you get that GUI going soon, jay!

    Thumbs up

    ozar, the only unanticipated problem I've run into is the deal with something changing in the kernel which turns detection of sda on and off or is needed for that to happen. I'm sure Linus could tell me but I just haven't had time to track it down. I started from defconfig and took a lot out which still left me with a fairly lean kernel that detects sda so I'm leaving it be.

    I think my problems were related to changes in the kernel not the version update. Perhaps there is a new way something happens that I'm not aware of with the old way being deprecated or radically changed. Once I got a base kernel working for me, the rest was a piece of cake except for pcmanfm which took some time to sort through. I've been running 2.7 for a week or so and am enjoying it a lot. One thing I've noticed is I don't run into as many compile problems as with earlier versions. Seems real fast and stable. I give it a thumbs up.

    I came across kernel mode setting while updating Debian to Squeeze. It only affects certain kernel video drivers - in Squeeze i915 and radeon. I have an old Intel chip which uses i810 so it doesn't affect me and probably won't on Crux either. All the same, I'm not going to upgrade until I have finished some urgent chapter edits that I'm currently doing for OpenOffice.org. If anyone is interested, here is the simplest account of KMS that I have come across.
