Post Re: MEPIS 10.9.90 beta #2 released - bug reports & feedback
@cookdav,
I'm guessing that your "nVidia NV34 (GeForce FX-500)" is actually a FX5200 which is the same card that I use {inxi -G reports my FX5200 card as a NV34}.

I'm able to use the FX5200 with M11 so know it can be done.

A couple of boot ideas

#1)
Use the Default_no_Xorg_preconfig boot option.
Press the Tab key and add nouveau.modeset=0 to the kernel options
This gets me to the KDM login and KDE4 desktop with the vesa driver having been auto-selected.
The display resolution and refresh aren't the best, but I can fix them later on with sgfxi after having installed to harddrive.

#2)
Use the NVIDIA_Xorg_config boot option.
Press the Tab key and change the drvr=nvidia to drvr=nv.
Again this gets me to to the KDM login and KDE4 desktop, but using the 'nv' driver instead of 'vesa'.
As with method #1, the display resolution and refresh still aren't the best (but imo better than vesa) and you can fix them later with sgfxi.

@kmathern:
Oops, a typo...I must have missed the '2' key...your guess is 100% correct...it's an FX-5200!

I tried both your suggestions...the 'nouveau' one looked the closest, but there's more
going on...it is indeed some 'startx' anomoly/problem. On that 'nouveau.modeset=0' one,
the flashing underscore char never re-appears, so it looked like it was gonna take, but
not quite...just get the blank screen raster and then nothing.

@richb:
Right on, Rich...that solved it! (Should have known...as I did see 'kdm' get launched, based
on one of the latter kernel-cmd lines, but for whatever reason, the 'kdm' isn't able to get
the xserver running, whereas the manual launch of startx from run-level-3 solves it!)

[The installer is now happily doing it's thing on the desktop-machine, as I write from the laptop.]

EDIT/update: The desktop-system installed fine and is now working! (I love M11/KDE4.5. Production-quality,
once you get past getting the Live-DVD to boot graphically, so you can do the install! :pint: )

Thanks for the help, guys!
:spinning:

Post Re: MEPIS 10.9.90 beta #2 released - bug reports & feedback
I've developed an issue with python since the last round of updates. CPU stays pegged at 50% on one core. The process isn't using much memory (9mb). Occurs immediately after logging in but does not happen every time.

Suggestions?

Edit: 32 bit Beta2

Sure enough does: hp-systray

HP hasn't burned me since my Windows days. Guess they had to make up for it where they could... :p

Post Re: MEPIS 10.9.90 beta #2 released - bug reports & feedback
Here I am again, late blooming. I have tried the live 32 bit disk on an old AMD slot A machine, will not boot.

Tried on a single core AMD 64 with a 21" CRT monitor, it booted up, #2 does not like my ATI card.

Tried on my Quad four AMD 64 with 28" digital monitor, it only would boot in the default mode, the rest went into lockup. #2 does not like the ATI card.

I now have #2 loaded on the Quad four in 32 bit mode. Things run slow and jerky.

I think the boot failure on the AMD slot A machine is because it doesn't support SSE instructions. See a similar thread here: viewtopic.php?p=258650#p258650

Yes that one is for a socket A CPU, mine is older than that one. This was a test more for the thread for "What should be the minimum stuff for M11 to run with" or something like that. I think richb is going crazy keeping up with these two threads. I am just reporting back, I have lots of older machines to try M11 on.
