Re: Xonotic does not start

Open up a shell and launch Xonotic from there. Post the output of Xonotic inside the terminal window. >My system is an AMD Athlon X3 and ATI integrated HD 4250 Hm, your graphic adapter might cause issues here. Xonotic is pretty demanding, although a GeForce 6600 was capable of running it. Unfortunat...

Re: Setting default resolution of TTY ?

Thanks for the hint ! I tried it and it seems that my settings are happily ignored during the boot process. Both consoles and the boot screen stay the standard 1024x768 after I specified 1920x1080 for both screens. I didn't check though wether the mode I selected is available or not. May be 1080p is...

Re: Setting default resolution of TTY ?

Well, from Debian I know that there is a special conf file under /etc/default/console-setup which lets you specify the font and font size used for the console. Under XTerm I usually crank up the font size to something bigger in order to make it better readable from a few meters away. A typical HTPC ...

Re: Setting default resolution of TTY ?

Thanks a lot ! I guess the font used in the TTY is a fixed one, right ?

Setting default resolution of TTY ?

Hi all, I have attached a PC to my 32" TV as HTPC. Everything is working fine so far beside some minor glitches. One thing though is quite disturbing: The default resolution of each TTY is different from my X resolution (1024x768 vs. 1920x1080). This makes my TV switch back and forth whenever I use ...

Any suggested approach for automated login to XFCE ?

Hi all, I just set up a HTPC using Sabayon x64 XFCE. Since the box servers for watching videos and playing games on my TV only, I would like to use an automated login to XFCE. I know there are various approaches to do so (use GDM or SLIM with auto login, use mingetty in your startup script and so on...

Re: Gnome 3 w/ Radeon

I don't see anything in the log. Nothing "failed." What exactly should I be looking for? Thoughts? Thanks. Brian Well, in the first place you should find out if the radeon drivers are installed at all. Then if the correct firmware is installed. Normally if the radeon xdrivers plus firmware are inst...

Re: Gnome 3 w/ Radeon

ADD ONE: Fedora 16 reports graphic: Gallium 0.4 on ATI RV515. Sabayon 7 reports Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe Well, the problem is somewhat obvious: FC16 runs the open source radeon driver with hardware acceleration while Sabayon 7 runs llvmpipe = software renderer. Check your xorg.log for any reports if...

Re: KVM configuration help

Hi there, not shure how libvirt is really involved with your case since it is only used to control the VM but not mandatory to launch kvm. Under Linux launching a VM can be as simple as qemu-kvm -m 2048 -hda yourhddfile.qcow2 -cdrom youriso.iso -boot d This would start a KVM machine with 2 GB RAM, a...

Re: Updated to Gnome 3 - where is my Shutdown button ?

Hi all, thanks for this lot of replies ! I guess next time I will rather "google" than posting here first. :alien: Searching for "gnome3 no power button" reveals an awful lot of postings :roll: Beside this minor glitch I somewhat like Gnome3. For the moment I have no bigger issues with it. Hopefully...
