Tried pasting the second xorg.conf but it hung the machine! Will try the other one next.

Different hardware , different video chipset, different monitor.Has to generate on YOUR machine and equipment.

"Having major problems finding a version of Knoppix that'll work. Downloaded both DVD and CD versions and put them onto a usb drive and nothing happened. USB drive in perfect working order."

Sometimes you just need to burn a disk.

Never had any luck with usb knoppix, myself.


Been awhile, though , it may have been a hardware issue ( on a long dead computer )

This is my very small How-To:

  • Install UNetbootin in Package Manager
  • Have a USB device => 1GB with a fat32 partition on it.
  • Download KNOPPIX_V6.7.1CD-2011-09-14-EN.iso and use UNetbootin > Diskimage to write it to the already mounted USB device.
  • Restart your computer.

I can not make it any easier Grin

and when it didn't work ( and it didn't   ( those hardware issues ) ) , go burn a disk  Grin
Now days I just save a step...............

Finally got Knoppix working.

Can't seem to find xorg.conf when looking at /KNOPPIX/etc/X11

I'm looking at file manager and under KNOPPIX_FS and I can't get to /etc/X11 without the KNOPPIX bit.

OK I see it.

Before I do anything else, what's the procedure for restoring the original setting if I happen to make a mess of things?

That's very easy.
Remove the inserted /etx/X11/xorg.conf from Pardus and restart.
That's all that needs to be done Grin

I removed my dual-VGA card to keep things basic but when I found the xorg.conf, it says

xorg.conf: Error removing file: Permission denied

xorg.conf: Error removing file: Permission denied
You need root privileges to remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf
To do this go in Dophin to /etc/X11 and right-click xorg.conf > Root Actions > Delete > ...

This is the Monitor section from my pc....


# Monitor section auto-generated by KNOPPIX mkxorgconfig

Section "Monitor"
   Identifier   "Monitor0"
   ModelName    "Generic Monitor"
#   HorizSync    28.0 - 78.0 # Warning: This may fry very old Monitors
#   HorizSync    28.0 - 96.0 # Warning: This may fry old Monitors
#   VertRefresh  50.0 - 76.0 # Very conservative. May flicker.
#   VertRefresh  50.0 - 60.0 # Extreme conservative. Will flicker. TFT default.
       
   
   Option "MonitorLayout" "LVDS,AUTO"

EndSection
======================================================
I've removed the comments characters in the Monitor section

Section "Monitor"
   Identifier   "Monitor0"
   ModelName    "Generic Monitor"
        HorizSync    28.0 - 78.0
#   HorizSync    28.0 - 96.0 # Warning: This may fry old Monitors
   VertRefresh  50.0 - 76.0
#   VertRefresh  50.0 - 60.0 # Extreme conservative. Will flicker. TFT default.
       
   
   Option "MonitorLayout" "LVDS,AUTO"

EndSection


And I've added this section found elsewhere with the resolution that looks good when I'm using Windows:

Section "Screen"
   Identifier "Screen0"
   Device     "Card0"
   Monitor    "Monitor0"
   
   Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true"
   Option "DisableGLXRootClipping" "true"
   SubSection "Display"
                Viewport  0 0
                Depth     24
                Modes     "1024x960"
        EndSubSection
EndSection:

=====================================

Nothings changed but at least the thing still loads!

Lots of tweaking to be done.

Well you got that far , did the original ( knoppix generated ) xorg.conf get used at all ( your current one seems a little sparse )
