If depmod takes half a minute, it must be a very old computer. Lazyux requires a KMS-supported GPU, which means a not-too-old Intel GPU, a recent Radeon or a nVidia GPU supported by Nouveau.

And it cannot be a secure banking Puppy, because it isn't Puppy and because it doesn't support SSL/TLS at the moment.

EDIT: uploaded a new snapshot.

I was curious to try it out (at work), so fired up the iso on vitrualbox and wmware...

In both cases it boots ok, but when starting X it exits with a 'dev/fb0 not found' error. May it be because of tinyXserver?

Your GPU is unsupported. Which model is it?

Well, it's an AMD4300 (or something like that), but I assumed that the gpu was emulated by Vbox or VMWare. Maybe those are unsupported.

I will try at home on a intel GPU and see.

Thanks anyway

On my Intel GPU lappy (a Toshiba portege r600) I can't get it to boot. It fails to find the home partition, both on real hardware and on virtualbox.

Could it be because linux-libre does not include closed source firmwares?? Those HW producers should really take the open source philosophy more seriously!

I will keep my eyes on...

I've got four computers with Intel GPUs (the oldest being the Media Accelerator 3150 on an Eee PC) and it works fine with the i915 driver. I see your laptop comes with an ancient GS45 and I'm not sure whether the i915 driver supports it.

Generally, if KMS works on a major distro (e.g you get the native resolution before X starts) it should work. Also, /var/log/Xorg.0.log should say you're using i915_dri.
