The openchrome driver should handle this. It is included in Porteus.

Please post the output of: lspci -k

According to this link you should have a supported driver with only 2D capability.

Please create the file:
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-openchrome.conf

The contents of this fie should be:
Section "Device"
Identifier "My Device Name"
Driver "openchrome"
EndSection

If it fails to boot please post the output of the Xorg log file.
This is seriously outdated hardware. If this fails you may also test the Porteus Kiosk edition to see if it can support your setup.

Hi, I have created the file:
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-openchrome.conf

and just cut and past this inside:
Section "Device"
Identifier "My Device Name"
Driver "openchrome"
EndSection

and it is still fail.
When i watch to Xorg.0.log, I notice that openchrome have never been loaded.

More over, openchrome seem to not be on the porteus live distrib

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest# modprobe openchrome
modprobe: FATAL: Module openchrome not found.
Here is the Xorg.0.log http://dl.free.fr/tsImVHw2p



What about the sound and the alsamixer wich cannot be launched (only from the igel computer)?



I didn't understood what is the purpose of porteus kiosk? is it a light porteus working by the cloud?
