video init script

Post by c172cpt » Wed Mar 18, 2009 9:37 pm

Please help, i have been working on this project for over a month now and i am stumped, i have fixed many errors leading up to this one that i cant figure out

on boot i have a tk-3350 from disklessworkstations.com that i want to use as a frontend device
when i boot i loads and brings up the splash screen then loads many modules, and the finally gives me the error "Something is very wrong in the 'video' init script"

here is the excerpt from messages:

Mar 18 16:19:01 (none) local0.info minimyth: configuring video ...
Mar 18 16:19:01 (none) local0.err minimyth: something is very wrong in the 'video' init script.
Mar 18 16:19:01 (none) local0.info minimyth: init failed. check '/var/log/messages' for further details.

any ideas?

In /etc/conf.d/minimyth, what is the value of MM_X_DRIVER and what is the value of MM_VIDEO_DECODER?

Also, what is the output of

Code: Select all

The video hardware has PCI ID 1023:8500, which requires the Xorg trident video driver. MiniMyth does not include this driver because this hardware does not include XvMC-VLD support and processors used with this hardware are generally too slow to decode SDTV MPEG2.
MM_X_DRIVER='auto'
Am I correct in assuming that you set this to auto in your minimyth.conf file? If so, then unset it as MM_X_DRIVER the value should be set to a Xorg video driver included in MiniMyth when set at all. Of course, this is for future reference as MiniMyth does not include a driver for your video hardware.
