Install 2or0's X-related packages (inside the afterall/packages directory).
You can try to run the things in 2nd-cfg.sh chunck by chunk. The script is basically helping users to install loads of things.
I don't use xdm or gdm; they just get in the way and block me from getting back to the console.


for getting back to the console, you can always do :

sudo chvt 1 (or chvt [123456] ) wink.gif

Oh yes, root. Just like when using other OSs on the Z. I am no paranoid. smile.gif
Frankly I haven't tried X in $USER yet.

i don't understand why that does not work with EABI ....

that's not credible

1 hour an a half later....

ok folks, i tried the best i can, i had to remove almost everything in order not to have package that you wouldn't have (...)

well do that :
apt-get install xdm
cd /usr/bin
mv X X.OLD
ln -s Xfbdev X
chmod 2755 Xfbdev

then, you can launch xdm, and log into X as $USER

j'ajoute a cela :

allez visiter :

/etc/X11/xdm/Xresources ligne 84 : Chooser*geometry: mettez une geometry qui tient sur l'ecran d'un zaurus (640x480)

/etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup --> xrandr -o right et si vous voulez ..... Esetroot ~/wallpaper.jpg

/etc/X11/xdm/Xservers ligne 35 : ajoutez a la fin, comme dans nos ~/.xserverrc -fp /usr/share..../misc

et d'autres trucs bien entendu... chacun configure son linux a sa sauce wink.gif
bonne soiree/journee !

jpmatrix : so ? no majors issues ?

ZDevil : i think we should add the adduser $USER and then the above trick to be able de launch X with a $USER in your 2-cfg.sh process for the Q18 and for other install.
maybe you should add it in the wiki.
my point is that it would be a shame if debian-zaurus based machines become the source of linux-virus, because their users only work in root instead of $USER. i won't develop this idea, you probably understand what i mean. Once shouldn't work in root.

gotcha! i've done all you wrote and X seems it want to be launched with my $USER but :
when i login with my $USER i'm always enforced to change my password ! do you know how to disable that??

yep : login in, and change password while loggin
then, exit properly
then relog

oh, and btw...you can "man 5 shadow" it explains how to configure it.... be sure the date is well fix (apt-get install ntpdate && /usr/sbin/ntpdate pool.ntp.org )
that should be fix

it works ! thanks ! i think my problem was date related as it kept asking me to change my password each time i login.
merci! wink.gif

ps: to have the right time, i had to run dpkg-reconfigure tzdata and choose Europe/Paris wink.gif
