Xorg and video driver for RPi4

Tue Oct 08, 2019 8:18 pm

Hello,

what is the video module for RPi 4?

I am trying to configure Xorg using

Code: Select all

Xorg :0 -configure
but the configuration fails.

I installed

Code: Select all

 
 xf86-video-fbdev
 xf86-video-fbturbo-git
 

the 1st works for RPi2 installation (on a RPi3 board).

Any ideas? The command

Code: Select all

$ lspci | grep VGA
is not helpful.

Which operating system are your running ?
Why do you want to reconfigure it ?

On Raspbian Buste I belive you dont have an "xorg.conf", its all autodetected.

Note this is in the Arch" forum, so references to what happens in Buster aren't going to be helpful....

Thanks, this helped me get xorg and with that gnome working.
I had to install xf86-video-fbdev to get xorg working, and to get gdm working I had to disable wayland and set xorg as the backend for it
I hope you in the meantime you managed to get yours started as well. Otherwise let me know, I might be able to help you.
