I have an old Sidux/aptosid install where sgfxi has stopped working. I have an nVidia card with a Liquorix kernel 3.13-5. When I run smxi, and get to the graphics portion of the install, I get "error 242 This script requires Xorg 7.1 or greater". I have xorg installed, I have uninstalled xorg and reinstalled it but no luck. Any thoughts as to what I am missing? This issue started about 3 weeks ago.

Do not post the results of only one line, and do not post it as root user.

As regular user, post exactly what I asked for, which is why I asked for it:

:: Code ::
inxi -bx

As you can see, inxi agrees with sgfxi, there is no xorg installed.

I double checked this one, and inxi out of X shows the xorg version, which of course it has to, since it's asking xorg its version.

:: Code ::
X -version


will probably give you a missing program error, unless it doesn't, then post the output here, it's faintly possible that the syntax is off, but I doubt it.

My all-time favorite since I've never understood any X stuff.

Bearing in mind I have essentially the same system as the OP.

Inxi -bx or X -version gives me 1.15.0.

So how do we get to Xorg 7.1? Where is it looking?

My question for the OP is, what did you specifically mean
:: Quote ::

I have xorg installed, I have uninstalled xorg and reinstalled it

I have never had the xorg pkg. Lots of xserver-xorg though.

And finally, is everything working OK with the exception of the sgfxi error?

sgfxi and inxi do the same rough check, they ask for X -version, if that is null, they ask for Xorg -version, then it says, ok, no X or Xorg, so there is no usable display server installed.

On the bright side, this motivated me to update inxi's display server data in -G, it will in the near future offer better data:

Display Server: Xorg 1.15.1 (for example). This is to prepare it for things like wayland and maybe mir, though I'm reluctant to spend time on stuff I view as having no future.

For sgfxi, however, all it needs to know is that there is no X server installed or available, since there is no video driver made by nvidia/amd-fglrx that supports mir or wayland, so if X is missing, there is nothing further to do but exit.

I suggest the OP reinstall xorg via smxi. I'm guessing a corrupted install or something else.

Ran X -version. Got an error stating libGL.so.1 was not available. Using apt downloaded libGL1-nvidia-glx. That got enough of X working that smxi was able to fix the rest. Thanks for the help.
