If you want to, you could see if the new nuke option would work for you. Use the boot parameters:

Code: Select all

nomodeset
xorg=vesa
bp=b9
This last one should open up a Bash shell right before we boot the system. Then try nuking the nouveau driver with these two commands:

Code: Select all

find /lib/modules/ -name nouveau.ko -delete
depmod
This will remove the nouveau module and rebuild the module dependency indexes so the system knows the module is not there any more.

If this works then the nouveau driver will not get loaded and you will get to X with the vesa driver. There should be a file created at /etc/X11/xorg.conf that tells X to load the vesa driver. If we don't create this file then you should still get to X but using the fbdev driver so the X resolution will be pegged to the resolution of the consoles, which actually might be okay/better than using vesa if you are booting UEFI.
Hi, not sure if I followed the post correctly but this did not work. Boot to usb - change the linux boot line to include the three items above, boot, get the normal start up options not a bash shell, just a normal tty root prompt. Typing the find command resulted in an error about the command appearing before the directory or visa versa - apologies forgot to take a photo.

Just as a note - this is not exclusive to antiX / MX - this is a nouveau issue where they have not done ANY work yet on any on the RTX nvidia range https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/FeatureMatrix/

After an upgrade, the alternativ-desktop-menu-entries are different. JWM exists multiple times, IceWM does not exist anymore.

I've noticed the same. No IceWM choices in Other Desktop menu. This is from a full dist-upgrade on a 19b2 install. But on my 19b3 LiveUSB the menu is normal.

Have tried newer kernels after having done the UEFI/Bios update in windows install Still no luck.

Removed the M2 and took tower to friends, he created a Flash drive to install windows 10 in a hard drive installed in this system, was very slow with Win10 installed. Did 2 bios upgrades, and decided to check and see if we could boot from newer kernels - Still not possible...

MX 18.3_64 Continuum May 26 2019 with Kernel 4.19.0.05-amd x86_64 runs fine on this motherboard & processor yet, Antix does have that Kernel to try with beta3 installed, but it does not boot beyond setting up battery as reported earlier. See attached image

Went from American Megatrends v: P1.10 date: 06/19/2018 to v: P2.00 date: 12/18/2018 and there is no change in Kernel abilities in this Motherboard, CPU booting ability.

Quad Core model: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G with Radeon Vega Graphics, has problem playing video.

Trying to watch a video, it plays then fades out (screen goes black) then plays again. Sound continues properly. the 5 second long video toggles video/black screen. This did not happen in AMD Ryzen 3 2200G with B2 the video played.

Same mkv video plays properly on Quad Core model: AMD Athlon II X4 630 - On system or from a flash drive.
Graphics: Device-1: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] RV670 [Radeon HD 3690/3850] driver: radeon v: kernel
Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.4 driver: ati,radeon unloaded: fbdev,modesetting,vesa resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz
OpenGL: renderer: AMD RV670 (DRM 2.49.0 / 4.9.189-antix.1-amd64-smp LLVM 7.0.1) v: 3.3 Mesa 18.3.6

Do I need to install AMD drivers for the Ryzen 3 2200G?

Quoting my own post: MKV will not play correctly in this system - MP4, AVI video play just fine.

Curious.

In MX I get the following results.

I have 2 external hdd drives in fstab
and several USB pen drives.
They are all mounted at boot, if plugged in.

If not plugged, I notice a quick warning that it didn't mount. If plugged in after boot, they get mounted automatically.

My netbook with MX and antiX-17.x did also.
It has ax19b2 at present but not at hand.

I think there are differences in mount handling between ax and MX. Maybe show your /etc/fstab to see what might have changed?
Might give a clue.

Not sure Im following. What is it exactly your point? I don't want it to be auto-mounted but have the option to if click on it, which it doesn't, instead I get that error message and have to manually mount it from terminal

Code: Select all

sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
I really dont mind that much doing this but it'd be nice being able to simply open spacefm, click on the usb device and voila! It gets mounted, unfortunately, it doesn't. It seems to me that it has something to do with nfts only since fat works just fine.
Without each other's help there ain't no hope for us :happy:

that's the fact that my usb hdd won't mount, instead I have to manually.
Sorry, my error. I misunderstood your intention.

@moltke,
Please post your /etc/fstab contents.

I use the defaults option on mine; but,
if you add noauto after defaults then it won't mount at boot but should when you click it in Spacefm.

Note: if using defaults, then will also need
to add after defaults:
owner - if you are owner
user - if you want to allow others to mount
