Congratulations on sticking with it, number77, and thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread, even if your contribution didn't seem to lead to a solution. Smile

I was curious about what would happen if .xinitrc wasn't found.

*nx convention is that /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc is run (system wide default choice). For other *nx's typically xorg includes twm, xclock, xterm such that you end up at a twm gui desktop ... which is usually a black screen with a x as a cursor. In Puppy that's been stripped out to make things leaner.

I wonder if it is as simple, as a bios setting, that would just turn off the dp3 port Idea

It has been proven again!

The bios is a strong maybe but number77 seemed to be unfamiliar with text based interfaces so I tried to stay in a gui environment as much as possible.

But this experience did motivate me to take precautions should I find myself being stuck without a gui. I installed midnight commander so I'll have an easier time moving around.

While I wouldn't recommend it to a beginner I do believe it's possible even for a beginner to learn how to move around and do some basic file manipulation. It also has a menu and, when run in a gui, can also be controlled with the mouse.
