Very good that you got there in the end!

it was reported earlier in this forum thread, that xorgwizard is broken, as 'ddcprobe' is missing.

I have compiled that in OE (it is in the 'xresprobe' package) and it will be in the next release.
I have also compiled nouveau and amd/ati xorg drivers.

So graphics support should become much better.

Have also fixed some bugs in the SNS.

I have an IBM thinkcentre desktop with an Intel chip.
I haven't been successful in getting to the desktop.
I installed pyro on 32gb stick. Good news ! Plop boot manager will start it to run.

Very close to the desktop . The mouse pointer forms and
the bottom launch bar briefly flashes on the screen.

However it automatically goes to your screen 'Try xorgwizard'

xorgwizard seems to work properly, since the log says it exited properly and I can see xorgwizard's screens properly.
but it won't launch the desktop.

I have seen a warning that a line of code won't run.

I haven't tried modesetting.

If it helps I included the xorg log file and X11 folder.

Is there any way of removing the top menus in mped text editor
since these are confusing?

By the way the special cut down version of nano text editor allows a menu and is only about 20k

./configure --enable-tiny

That is missing /usr/bin/ddcprobe.

Guess you can simply change
Code:
      Modes       "1280x1024"

to
Code:
      Modes       "1920x1080"

in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf
and restart X.

Or use attached ddcprobe
Click to uncompress and copy to /usr/bin
Then xorgwizard should offer 1920x1080 too.

Success!
Used the 4install-Quirky-to-partition script and the pyro64-0.2.usfs.xz file.
Superb script Barry!

Had to add the wifi file: /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8712u.bin
I used the rtl8712u.bin from slacko64-6.3.2-uefi.iso (zdrv_slacko64_6.3.2.sfs).

Did a 4install-Quirky-to-partition again.
Used the xorg.conf and xorg.conf.Intel_r_Eaglelake_Graphics_ChipX203H from my Xerus64-8.0.0 built to make it work.

To fix the 'galculator' problem, you can grab the 64-bit libquadmath.so from Slacko64-6.3.2.-uefi.iso at: puppy_slacko64_6.3.2.sfs /usr/lib64

Getting accelerated graphics with modesetting driver

My first attempts have resulted in:Direct Rendering Yes
Note the correction in my post as for adding file 20-gpudriver.conf please.

Next installation on another USB stick I have copied ddcprobe first of all, resulted in DIRCT RENDERING No

A miracle...

Repeated installation
changed resolution manually in xorg.conf
Got a running X system with DIRCT RENDERING No
Then copied ddcprobe and used xorgwizard again choosing modesetting.
It is Direct Rendering Yes

Thought I share this.....

EDIT
...and no changes made in xorg.conf for "glx" and "dri"
Code:
# This loads the GLX module (if present). xorg 7.4/5 need explicit disable to disable...
#    Disable    "glx" #LOADGLX

# This loads dri module (if present). 7.4 loads it by default, have to disable...
#    Load       "dri" #LOADDRI
#    Disable "dri"

Success!
Found an old ext2 formated usb stick with about 7.6 usable GBs left.
Did a 4install-Quirky-to-partition with the pyro64-0.2.usfs.xz file once more.
To make it boot I used Grub4dos from a Precise Puppy 5.7.1.iso cd.

Added 'ddcprobe' as advised by L18L.

EDIT: to a new file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-gpudriver.conf


OK, I will put that in!

Added 'ddcprobe' as advised by L18L

This gave the correct resolution of my monitor on xorgwizard list

however I still can't get to disktop

Typing in console
Code:
X


gives me warning about my xorg.conf file needing a fix for screen section
or device section

@don570, I did not find anything on the web ("no screens found" gpudriver) to solve your special problem with screen..

Thus only some "wild guesses" for you:
Quote:
I haven't tried modesetting.
Try it please:
Code:
echo ' Section "Device"
    Identifier "i915"
    Driver     "modesetting"
    Option     "SWCursor"       "ON"
 EndSection ' > /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-gpudriver.conf
(i915 should be your gpu)

You might change "modesetting" to "intel" or "i915" ?
________________

EDIT (May, 2Cool
No, Identifier has to stay "gma500_gfx"
or
no 20-gpudriver at all for intel i915 gpu
________________

maybe also append:
Code:
 drm_kms_helper.edid_firmware=edid/1920x1080.bin

to append line of syslinux.cfg

and/or add/change your modeline "1920x1080" in xorg.conf.

FYI: tail of my xorg.conf:
Code:
#everything past here is auto-generated by Puppy's Xorg Wizard...

Section "ServerLayout"
   Identifier "Default Layout"
   Screen "Screen0" 0 0
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
   Identifier   "Monitor0"
   VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
   ModelName    "Monitor Model"
   VertRefresh  59-76
   Option      "PreferredMode" "1920x1080"
EndSection

Section "Modes"
   Identifier "Modes0"
EndSection

Section "Device"
   Identifier  "card0"
   Driver      "modesetting" #card0driver
EndSection

Section "Screen"
   Identifier "Screen0"
   Device     "Card0"
   Monitor    "Monitor0"
   DefaultDepth 24
   Subsection "Display"
      Depth       24
      Modes       "1920x1080"
   EndSubsection
EndSection

#PuppyHardwareProfile=Intel_R_XX_Graphics_ChipsetLSL3230T


Best of luck Very Happy
