A working xorg.conf anyone?

Angstrom distro - I get a blank screen when X starts or using xdm from
another box.
Trying xorgconfig I still got "no screens found" - changed "vga" to
"omapfb". I have a 19" LCD screen using the DVI input.

Sid.

This is as far as it gets with the distro's xorg.conf

Xorg.0.log_beagle (8.69 KB)

Hi,
   Sorry, I can't interpret the log. However, I add below, the
xorg.conf that is currently used in my BB with Angstrom. Maybe, this
helps. The screen is 19" LCD dvi input, same as yours. I got no
problem in display.
   BTW, I'm trying to establish a remote connection to BB. I failed
yet. You mentioned about xdm from a remote box. How could you setup
the xdm server open for remote access?

Regards,

Caner

Your xorg.conf is exactly the same.

"X -query <IP_address_of_beagleboard> :1" should give a login screen for
the beagleboard on VT8, assuming VT7 is used for display :0.
In /etc/X11/Xaccess uncomment the lines
* CHOOSER BROADCAST #any indirect host can get a chooser

* #any host can get a login window

What I am seeing in Xorg.0.log is
        ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 2.0

That log shows X is working fine, I suspect you failed to see if the DVI port works at all in your current video setting.

OK, I shall check the specs for the monitor to see if it supports 6.
I am using the default xorg.conf and it doesn't report that it is unable
to use that resolution..
(--) omapfb(0): Virtual size is 640x480 (pitch 640)
The keyboard also defaults to "US" and I'd like to change it to "gb".

The LCD is set for 640x480 @ 59Hz

Hi,
   Maybe I should have carried this topic to a new thread.
   Sid, thanks for the solution. But I failed. Well, I tried "X -
query <IP_address_of_beagleboard> :1" at client side which is Ubuntu
9.04, it destroyed the current X session, and tried to start some kind
of new session, I couldn't figure it out since nothing but a black
screen appeared. I also checked /etc/X11/Xaccess file, couldn't find
it. In addition, I searched Xaccess in whole disk, still no result.
Angstrom is running on Beagleboard. Did you setup some additional
packages at serverside? And, I really got confused about X command.

With X on Linux, you have access to virtual screens (:0 :1 :2, etc.) on
which you can manage many machines, switching between them with
CTRL-ALT-Fkeys
It works like this ... you have your first session (Ubuntu) running on
VT7 (:0), it switched to VT8 (:1) to open a login screen from the
beagleboard which it obviously didn't get - hence the black screen on :1.
CTRL-ALT-F7 takes you back to your main Ubuntu session on :0 which is
still alive and well. CTRL-ALT-F8 would take you back to the failed
beagleboard login attempt.
As an example as to how I managed multiple Solaris partitions from a
Linux laptop, something that couldn't be done from Solaris or Windows, I
opened one session on :1, one on :2, one on :3 and one on :4,
CTRL-ALT-F7 from any session would take me to :0 (my main Linux
session), CTRL-ALT-F8 switches to :1, CTRL-ALT-F9 to :2, etc. to go to
any session I have running.

I am still having problems with X on the beagleboard and the result of
"X -query 192.168.10.176 :1" takes me to VT8 and the black screen which
eventually dies, but immediately CTRL-ALT-F7 takes me back to my main
session.
When it works, it gives you a beagleboard X session.

That log shows X is working fine, I suspect you failed to see if the DVI

Tried a new MMC card with
Angstrom-Beagleboard-demo-image-glibc-ipk-2009.X-stable-20090612--beagleboard.rootfs.tar.bz2
and modules-2.6.29-r37-beagleboard.tgz, an X login is OK, but not the
USB network dongle, so no network.

On the original card using unstable, I have to start X manually but the
screen comes up blank.
"Xorg -br -nolisten tcp :0 vt6&" or just "Xorg &"
The unstable branch was generated using the tool.
My_Beagle-66007649-image-beagleboard.tar.bz2

On other thing, the USB appears to go to sleep (hub lights go out) and
can only be awaken by a reboot.

Sid.
