I'm posting from a 120MHz Pentium I desktop, so I think we'll leave the sanity judgements out of the equation. Smiley

Strange graphics glitches are a common problem with laptops due to their unstandardised video modes. The "vga=" and framebuffer (eg. "fb800x600") boot commands (http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/cheat_codes.html) should, perhaps after some trial and error, provide a working configuration.

If you want to install DSL to the computer's HDD, the working graphics command can be added to the /boot/grub/menu.lst file, on the lines beginning with "kernel".

I know you think it's probably insane to try and use a 266 MHz and 76MB laptop in 2017, and I think the same, but insane or not, I wanna use it, for "making" something on that laptop is a project I do with my little bro. I get to teach him linux while I learn a thing or two at the same time.

First, I tried installing Slitaz linux, but it doesn't work. This laptop's graphics card uses the neomagic chipset. I tried Slitaz with Xorg, but no matter what I did Xorg didn't start. I'm not an expert in linux, I started using linux about 5 months ago, so I seek help.

After a few more tries I managed to get Slitaz 3.0 to load the display, but I got a very weird result which I couldn't fix. Now I tried with DSL and I got the same result. A display that looks like this:

Can you help me fix this? Thank you!

This thread isnt asking for someone with a spare compatible controller. You might be thinking of my wanted ad.

So, has anyone tried using an SPI display with a Pi?

I installed Nas4free several years ago.  I left it unplugged for about a year while in storage.  I tried starting the system up and it told me I had a boot sum error.  I remember the last time I had that i had to replace the on board battery.  I did that but now Im getting a disk boot failure I then thought it was a flashdrive that went bad so I went and bought a new drive and downloaded the software onto the drive.  Still giving me the same error.  Any thoughts?

I have that issue frequently. Force quit the app and open it again and it ought to work.

The iPhone app disabled Airplay, but you can play movies on your computer and mirror with Apple TV. 
But I'm looking forward for the ATV4 app.

But why would a thread that has a title that is in no way a CoC violation be shut down in the first place?

OK, that explains it.  I thought I was "not" seeing things.  I approved your post, assuming that you knew whereof you spake.  And, I do now see the option to change user name.
