What kind of card do you have? `lspci` etc. It appears to be using the vesa driver (?).

My laptop is a Dell clone.... and most of its parts are VIA, including the video card.. and rt2500 for wireless.
lspci -->
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. S3 Unichrome Pro VGA Adapter (rev 01)

Previously when i posted the Xorg.0.log, there is a line:
(!!) VIA Technologies does not support this driver in any way.

is there a relationship with this (!!) notice message?

what's the difference between the blag 70K and blaghead X?
now that xorg.conf is not been used anymore, what/where is the current X config file?

Would an easier way to get a blaghead system running be to install the latest development release of fedora 9 and then change to the blaghead repos, and then apt-get dist-upgrade?

Uh, maybe. i think that will have a few issues as well though. I mini install of 70k then dist-upgrading the installing the GUI you want best works ok now that we know which hoops to jump through. I was also thinking of doing "blag-desktop" and such packages so you could just install that and it would Require: things like gnome-session and such.

I made a qemu/kvm image of a base BLAGHEAD installation:

I restored the xorg.conf to /etc/X11/
I had moved it to a backup place because

The preferred way is to not have *any* /etc/X11/xorg.conf now. So just remove it. If you need special tweaks to sections, you can add just those parts (works for somethings).

I had posted some lines of my /var/log/Xorg.0.log , no answers about it.
So got back my xorg.conf and changed the: Driver "openchrome" for "vesa"

Code:

Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Videocard0"
   Driver      "vesa"
EndSection


Now my X environment does not freeze no more....

Don't know whether this is the correct solution for my blaghead box, but it works... so please if someone has suggestions, just go ahead...
by the way... what/where is the blaghead X config file, if the xorg.conf isn't being used... (well actually I'm using it ;) )

nice background jebba...

Yes, you can use vesa driver instead if the other isn't working. BLAGHEAD uses xorg.conf if it is present, if not, it generates it on the fly.

Ok, so it is clear to me now...
"on the fly" xorg.conf blaghead generated file doesn't set correct horiz and vert params for my laptop display and the openchrome driver does not seem supporting my VIA card.. so I'll keep using the common xorg.conf with "vesa" modification...

thanks..

Last night I decided to reinstall BLAGHEAD from scratch using the instructions found at:

https://wiki.blagblagblag.org/BLAGHEAD

All was going well until about a quarter of the way into the "apt-get dist-upgrade", when the screen turned black except for a fairly useless white cursor. Instead of power-cycling, as I had done once before, I ssh'ed into the box from my laptop and discovered that the dist-upgrade was still going strong. After about half an hour it had completed, which I confirmed by running "apt-get dist-upgrade" again and finding that there was nothing left to upgrade. The subsequent "apt-get update" failed due to a duplicate version of "avahi", which I promptly removed. After grabbing the newest kernel-libre, I rebooted, leaving me a freshly installed BLAGHEAD system.

Hi, new here.
I installed from the standard 70k disc, and I did receive some dependency problems, will be reinstalling with mini-iso, but I thought these might help development:

Yes, thanks much for the helpful bug report. I suggest subscribing to blag-noise mailing list, if you're not on it. It gives you info about package changes. I will go thru the below and add missing packages (which are likely to have been recently introduced). This list gets sent to the blag-noise list every couple days.

Have fun,

Why all the fc10? Does it have something to do with the fact that http://www.blagblagblag.org/pub/BLAG/linux/blaghead/en/os/i386/BLAG/Packages.blag/blag-package-config-apt-9-0blag.f9.noarch.rpm no longer exists and I used http://www.blagblagblag.org/pub/BLAG/linux/blaghead/en/os/i386/BLAG/RPMS.blag/blag-package-config-apt-9-0blag.f9.noarch.rpm instead??

All the fc10 cuz this is *SOFTWARE FROM THE FUTURE*


It looks like your `apt-get update` wasn't updated. Or if it was, then the repo was being regenerated right around when you ran it. Currently this is not done perfectly clean as it is possible for a file to be listed in the list but not be live on the server. My longer term plan is to move where all this is being processed over to the jojojojojojo server (as 90k is), but for now I'm just working on trying to get some ISOs out. It will happen eventually. Chalk it up to a blaghead quirk for now. ;)

I did many an apt-get update ... but maybe I was just unlucky with the timing. In any case BLAGHEAD boots - though I have to hit Cntl-C when it loops looking for /sbin/pidof.

I'll give it another go now.
