It's me! Me again

I couldn't with the login, so I decided to install Salix again, for the third time. After 12 hours I could edit "xorg.config" BUT! (It never ends part III)

But there' wasn't a xorg.conf archive. I read and discovered that I needed to create this archive. So, I found "xorg.conf-vesa" , edited it and then I copied and moved into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d renamed, though renamed as "50-synaptics.conf", I did several mistakes editing, but I wrote each line of this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/SiS

Then....startx....Now is moment for come back again our: BUT!

I got (EE)
Error: No CRT2 output selected or no bridge detected. Dual H$ (I cant' read the following words)
END OF MESSAGE
Error: First head encountered fatal error, aborting...
END OF MESSAGE
(I)UnloadModule: "sis"
(I)UnloadModule:"sis"
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration
(EE) Fatal server error:
(EE) no screens found (EE)



Before that I see (--) Chipset SIS630/730 found

One me more thing....I did the chroot process for the password because during the installation I could'n't add my user and pass because I received an error like "can't show window".

So, I have this problem with 50-synaptics.conf alias "xorg.conf" but (this is a good but) I can login as root and work.

Could you help me? Please....

Well...I'm searching on Internet and I've found this xorg.config file for SIS630. I'll give it a chance.

It says:
So basically here are the steps, but I dont know if each of this is required or not, I just know this is what I have, and it works:

1. In your kernel config, compile agpgart and agp for sis as a module.

2. Activate DRI support and select sis, as a module. (This seems to be required.)

3. Use Xorg!! (This also seems to be requirement.)

4. Copy the relevant parts from xorg.conf

But...I don't understand step 1. How I compile agpart and agp in the kernel?

agpgart and agp are already compiled in the kernel that comes with salix, so nothing to do there.

That's the good news of the day. I'm going to work with that xorg. config that I've found and then I'll post here.

Thanks gapan! See you later :lol:
