Damn - pressed send by mistake ;)

I will try again:

Emphasis on the bit:  On the end of  the line starting append <blah>

so you SHOULD have this:

kernel vmlinuz
append root=/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part2 devfs=mount kbd-reset 
video=xbox:800x600,hoc=13,voc=9 xbox=hdd

Move Xebian install to g partition

Hi,

I'm quite happy with my xebian 1.0.0 install; however, there's a few things
I would like to do and was wondering if it is possible/easy to do...

 - I want to move the / (or as much of it) over to my g partition - how can
I do this? I have g formatted as ext3.
 -  I want to convert my loop thingy in my e partition to ext3 (I don't like
reiserfs)
 - I want to autologin into X so I don't have to my user and password - can
I do this through xdm?

Oh, why is there an account 'live' created on the default install? What's it
for?

Thanks,

Yee.

Freevo + XBox Remote

Hi guys,

So far over the weekend I have managed to setup my xbox with the latest 
release of Ed's Debian and a few other bits.
One of the main things I am interested in setting up is Freevo and getting 
use of the XBox's remote control.  Can someone point me in the right 
direction with a howto or something similar for this.  I have been looking 
through old posts and can only find bits of help, not a complete guide.
Some help would be appreciated,

Thanks,

Andy.

xpad + LIRC for 1.0.1/2.4.25 was Re: Freevo + XBox Remote

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/xbox-linux/lirc/README.lirc_xir?rev=1.1.1.1&view=auto

Note that setting this up is currently a painful process, even more 
painful than it has been before, due to the fact that 1.0.1 reports its 
kernel to be 2.4.25 while the cvs files result in a kernel 2.4.25-xbox.

Unless Ed releases a deb with the kernel headers of the 2.4.25 kernel 
1.0.1 is running, you need to
a) get a vanilla 2.4.25 kernel from a kernel mirror near you
b) get the 2.4.25-xbox files from xbox-linux cvs (see sf project page)
c) copy the files over the unpacked 2.4.25 tree
d) remove the -xbox from EXTRAVERSION in the main kernel Makefile
e) copy kernel.config to .config in the kernel tree
f) make oldconfig

then continue with making the modules (lirc and lirc_xir). The xpad 
contained in 1.0.1 should be 0.1.4 already.

good luck
Marko

Re: Move Xebian install to g partition

with xdm no, AFAIK. If you use gdm, you can, but I think there is an easier way. Just let linux start into
console mode, let it login automatically, and start X afterwards... :
create a script called /sbin/autologin with this content:

#!/bin/bash
exec 0</dev/$1 1>/dev/$1 2>&1
cat /etc/issue
shift
exec $*
# eof

then, go into you /etc/inittab and change the line 
1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty1
to something like
1:2345:respawn:/sbin/autologin tty1 login -f username

as I wrote: don't start xdm in your runlevel. Do this by either editing the runlevel-entry at /etc/inittab
or simply remove the S99xdm link (not shure about the number) from the runlevel-rc.d that you are using.

Then, simply add 'startx' to one of the .rc scripts.... like 
$home/.bash_profile
startx

cheers,
Hans

RE: Move Xebian install to g partition

Thanks for the email and the login script! :)

The auto login works fine; however, starting the x server doesn't want to
start. I've tried it in .profile, .bash_profile and .bashrc:

/usr/bin/X11/startx

Nothing's happening after bootup; I get my login prompt and that's it!

When I try typing startx manually through ssh (I don't have a keyboard
plugged in the machine), it complains that 

X: user not authorized to run the X server, aborting.
giving up.
xinit:  No such file or directory (errno 2):  unable to connect to X server
xinit:  No such process (errno 3):  Server error.

Help!

Yee.

Xebian X2VGA problem using Xromwell

Hi,

I have a problem booting Xebian 1.0.1 from the game partition using a X2VGA as 
output device.

It's an 1.0 PAL xbox running Evox as dashboard but setup in eeprom as NTSC, 
just to enable HD modes.

Xebian boots fine when using the Advanced Pack (RGB scart) output, but if I 
try to boot it with the X2VGA attached, there is no output (just the 3 lines 
from xbeboot), the fan goes suddenly louder and in just 3 or 4 seconds the 
system powers down.

kernel vmlinuz
initrd initrd
append init=/linuxrc root=/dev/ram0 kbd-reset xbox=fatx_e:/debian 
ramdisk_blocksize=4096 video=xbox:640x480,nomtrr,tv=VGA
xboxfb y

Append line is just too large so it may get wrapped.

Does anyone knows what the problem is?

Someone has it working with X2VGA?

RE: xebian 1.0.1 at 800x600

Hi David,

I rectify the mistake I made on the linuxboot.cfg file, however the
800x600 PAL output still has the same problem. I am attaching the
linuxboot.cfg

Hope you can help.

Thanks.

Albert
