no user able after Xorg setup
  • ouioui November 2009

    I did reinstall my partition for the new Cooking version.

    After installing of Xorg (difficult, but it goes now with very good performance: maximal resolution of the laptop-screen, better than in vesa, and possibility to use alternate keyboard setting and to use Indian Devanagari keyboard and truetype; truetype copied from Debian from the 2d. PC) I only connect me as "root". good... it is not dramatic, all puppy linux users do so...

    but it is not proper and I would prefer to amend it and connect me as "me" and not always as "root".

    (I already did try to create an new user according to the informations in the handbook!)

    I know it is an old problem but I did not find an adequat discussion in the new forum or in the new wiki. can someone remember, what is to do?

    thank you!


    supplem. info:

    it seems that the xorg.conf created by Xorg -configure contains problematic stuffs. following xorg.conf goes now:
