If X tried to start and failed should produce a /var/log/Xorg.0.log file. Also the /initrd/tmp/dmesg.txt file could be informative and maybe the /initrd/tmp/bootinit.log file


@norgo had success with his testing branch iso so I burned the one from
my new woof-CE testing branch (yesterday afternoon) to a DVD and tried
it on a pc with intel graphics (X wouldn't start on my HP ATI Radeon)
and it works.
I'm booting from the DVD with a save file on the hard drive.

I'll try booting the DVD on the Gateway which has Nvidia graphics and
see how that goes.

EDIT: The DVD boots to the desktop on the Gateway but the resolution is wrong and the mouse is dead,ctrl-alt-backspace does nothing.

So recent commits have caused problems with Radeon and Nvidia graphics on my hardware.

Have built a slacko pup (32-bit, kernel 4.4, which is number 24 in the list during woof build)

It boots from CD and USB, all the way to desktop on a Dell Optiplex GX-something, which has on-board Intel gfx, and also boots to desktop on my main PC (with AMD radeon 7750 gfx) ..

Am using it now.. Works very nicely..

This is from the /etc/DISTRO_SPECS
Code:
BUILD_FROM_WOOF='testing;6e9bb39;2017-07-31 17:43:50 +0800'

For reference, the previous errors (now gone in 6e9bb39?) were "missing xorgwizard-automatic, line 113 of xwin" in one very recent build, and missing "FreeSans" font errors in a slightly older one... I had those errors on both machines mentioned above, and in a VM.

... Now some general observations..

1. Is the missing fonts message that prevented my desktop loading up (in previous builds) related to not including pTheme?

2. JWM is crap at working out 2 monitors, and moving them around is a real pain - compared to the drag and drop UI that Xfce provides.. Any way round this? Zarfy, maybe?

3. Does the Universal Pup Installer insist on overwriting the MBR of every drive/disk that uses GRUB? (or is it just me?)... Seems every time I try to use the Universal Installer, it insists I replace my MBR with mbr.bin (or other).. Can the Universal installer not work out I have a working GRUB, just leave the MBR?

4. IIRC, the Grub4DosConfig app doesn't backup the menu-adv.lst file, only the menu.lst file..

5. Where is the documentation about adding new petbuilds and pet packages to Woof? I want to create a new branch and make it build an Xfce pup (ideally... baby steps)..

6. I've noticed that none of the following keys works as they should in Urxvt: Crtl-Left, Ctrl-Right, Home key, End key ... Should this be fixed in /etc/profile, or ~/.bashrc? i'm pretty sure i've got a puppy bashrc with all these fixes in it somewhere if anyone would prefer them working in woof-built pups..

7. How does having an Fdrv and a Ydv affect the zdrv-cutter thing? .. It that still a thing? Can't find it in my newly woofed pup..

I did a fresh install of woof-CE testing branch then a new build:

Running from a 32gb SDHC card on Acer laptop.

Works good, thanks for the fix.

If Ctrl-Left and Ctrl-Right are the keys that switch you to a different virtual window I've always found that shortcut just annoying. I'll be playing a game and the desktop will randomly switch to a different one where my game isn't on instead of doing what it's suppose to inside the game. I think it was Tahrpup that had this issue, as I remember the "pink square" moving left and right when my screen disappeared. Might have been Alt-Left/Right though, haven't experienced the issue for a while now.
