Please help,

I have downloaded the latest live version of Toorox and the installation seems fine

until I try to login.


Login: OK


Password: When I try to enter the password (user) the cursor flashes but no letters are printed.

My Processor is AMD 64 Athlon X2.

Graphic Board: Nvidia Getforce 7600 GT

KeyBoard: Connected via PS/2.

Hi Martin,
Password: When I try to enter the password (user) the cursor flashes but no letters are printed.
When you type in the password, there is no screen output - it is hidden!
Just type in the password and hit the Enter key and you will see the successful login.
But your problem is another one - by default there is an autologin and the Desktop should be loaded automatically. I think the hardware detection for your VGA chip has failed. The correct driver for your chip is nv - so when you are in the Toorox boot menu, navigate to the correct resolution line for your display, hit the TAB key and attach the following cheatcode at the end:
xmodule=nv
Then hit Enter.
If you see the same text login:
try the cheatcode:
xmodule=vesa

Still can not login.

I have tried all the suggestions you put foreward.

One thing I have notice is when I xmodule= nv instead of getting the = sign it

is coming up with the ' sign.

In winxp I have no trouble.

Any ideas?

Regards.

When you see the login: then login as user:root pw:root
Now type in:
emerge nvidia-drivers
This will take a few minutes ... then type in:
mcedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
and go to Section "Device"
Change the line:
Driver "..."
into
Driver "nvidia"
Then hit F10 to save and exit.
Next:
eselect opengl set nvidia
and finally:
/etc/init.d/xdm restart

Greetings Joern

No it still does not work.

When I type in
emerge nvidia-drivers
after a few minutes I get:---

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "nvidia-driver" I think I will leave Toorox alone untill the next version. There still seems to be problem with this version. I have tried other O/S's and I do not get any problems. Regards Martin Stubbs.[code]"

hmm, did you really entered nvidia-drivers or nvidia-driver?
The full emerge command is:
emerge x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers

last try? ;) ok ...
