General Support / Re: Cannot access tty1
« on: March 19, 2013, 06:35:05 AM »
I hit the same problem with the latest ISO.

I usually install my Nvidia drivers through synaptic first (if I don't, playonlinux will state that it can't find any opengl drivers), and then run SGFXI for the proper ones. But this time out, I lose tty. I had already run smxi and installed the latest Liquorix kernel, so it had to be the Nvidia install. First time this has happened in all of my Debian installs.

I tried to install a different Kernel, this time Siductions, hoping I could then get to a tty, but no-go.

I saw that endless loop chain one time too... It was because for some reason the install of Fluxbox did not have the correct rights on the directory and it could not write what was needed

Okay, so it wasn't just me  :D

Shortly thereafter, I added that second internal harddrive, so I just re-did my install, but used the most current ISO, which had FB on it. Saved a few steps.

This we have in common! ... I bet you are a musician too

A tone-deaf dabbler-wannabe.

But I've been known to have been a small press writer of strange, sometimes horrific fiction before (check out Bare Bone anthologies via Amazon). Currently I just make 3D artwork for my own fun. Carrara works fine via Wine, but it's time consuming.

Vastone -- my older box with the realtek driver was the only "problem" i had with install, but that was easily fixed by manually installing the nonfree driver and modprobing it. Had to do that with Siduction, too. A year ago, it was beyond me. Otherwise the installs have been easy. And you included most of everything I was used to using like geany and gdebi and ntfs-3g.

Sector11 -- well, SID's been awfully quiet and tame the last year or so. That's kinda scary  ???

When I first ran Sid, just about every other update seemed to break it; of course, I wasn't used to it yet either. But it never hurts to be safe with a back-up OS just in case. I have 2 HDD's, plus and external, so I've got plenty of room.

And I'm a Pisces -- I like lots of choices and sometimes I head for the extremes  :o

Never hurts to ask; I borked a previous VSIDO install before you included Fluxbox by adding it, but something went wrong and everytime I used it, I was thrown back to the login screen. An endless loop.

Sometimes it takes awhile to get to know these WM.

Thanks for looking into it, though.

How does one go about updating the menu?

I thought when I used Fluxbox on antiX it had an "update menu" script/link. That was my only time trying out Fluxbox, and I thought it was one of the features, as compared to Openbox's manual menu config.

Greetings from the shadows. I've been using VSIDO since the first release, but have just lurked about these forums, enjoying the OS and drinking in all of the wonderful conky scripts.

I've using Linux as my only OS of choice for a year and a half now, learning the ins and outs and trying to get all of my hardware to work :)  I began with Ubuntu/Xubuntu/Mint and the likes, tried Crunchbang and #! SID, toyed with Sabayon and others. Lots of distro-hopping as you can guess.

Currently I'm booting Manjaro and Debian Sid after building my first new box.

VSIDO was nearly perfect out of the box (it didn't like my original machines realtek driver, but it was an easy one to solve). In fact, I have 2 VSIDO installs, one Xfce and on set for Fluxbox as a backup for when the freeze is over ;)

Just wanted to say "hi" and let VastOne know that he did good   :)
