My NEC laptop doesn't like Xvesa drivers and the display is useless! Has anyone built a version with alternate fb support please? It should just be a substitute of the one driver for the other I think.

Many thanks

Thanks for the information. I followed the link and downloaded the file. Then at the boot I typed '6' ... and it booted through to a working Xwindows! Now I can begin to use this program!!

Come on, Bladehunter. Go easy on the guy. You remember when you were a noob?

And besides, he's Australian, so maybe he was just having trouble with the language. Wink

PS, Seems awfully convenient that Bladehunter changed his own "location" info just recently...

That's the spirit. At least Riccardo was considerate enough to let you know it worked. Smile That's better than someone who searches the forum and tries out your download, but never reports if it worked or not for him.

I must say that forum search engines haven't done me much good, because so many people either don't put anything in the subject line or say something useless, like "help." That's why I edit the subject line of the first post of Puppy forum threads to more accurately indicate the topic of the thread, to help people who are searching the forum, either looking for questions to answer or answers to their questions.
