PostPosted: Wed 28 Sep 2011, 23:13    Post subject: Updated patch package for next instant update
Subject description: Superceded by patch-6 on next page of thread.

playdayz,
After holding off for addition of more fixes, I need to post my collection of fixes now to support the users reporting problems with sound and, particularly the intel HDA driver. The package includes the content of "patch-4', so replaces it (or can be installed on top of "-4" or after uninstalling "-4").

One of the fixes relates to the verification that a module is loaded. A module with a name that includes hyphens (-) may be erroneously deemed to be not present, which could disrupt the startup of sound cards, if there is a delay in the loading process. Anyone with a sound card problem should install this patch, to rule out this bug as a cause of failure of the sound function.

Another included fix is the adoption of Barry's fix to the rc.shutdown script, which he explains in his blog. Anyone experiencing hangs at shutdown with partitions mounted should install this package.

I will itemize the fixes later, but need to make this available to the users with sound issues.

About Lucid 5.2.8 , Great job for finally solving the "cannot boot from usb flash without harddisk". The latest Woof is really great.

I just want to report that it can work flawlessly for ALL COMPUTER THAT CAN BOOT FROM USB only if you format the usb flash using "bootflash USB installer" thus using the whole usb flash and fat32 format.

If you use "universal USB installer" or try to change the partition in any way, then the usb will either not boot at all or the old problem reappear or it will only work in a very few modern computer.

BTW, maybe it is better if this forum in sorted from the latest date first ??




When I went from Lucid 5.2 to 5.2.5 on my work computer with no hard drive, I was no longer able to boot from my flash drive. I tried using the update pet to fix it but was unsuccessful and did not spend more time on it. I just used a CD and my lupusave on my flashdrive.

With 5.2.8, I am able to boot from my flash drive again. I moved my files (including my lupusave), used the Universal Installer to update my flash drive, then moved the files back. My computer at work is an old Dell with 512 megs of RAM.

The offending code in my script is
Code:
if [ "`top -n 1 | grep Pupsave-backup`" ]; then
Why that would crash jwm is beyond me.

I'll upload a new pet complete with menu tomorrow. If you would like to use it, feel free.

I have recreated the problem on a different computer and I can tell you how to reproduce it. There is definitely a conflict with jwm and my script in 5.28. It takes my script to make it happen. Sad
It does not have to be 'installed' it just has to be run from a jwm menu.
Put the script in /root/my-applications/bin and a desktop file to run it in the usual place.
Fixmenus.
Run the script from the openbox menu.
Switch to jwm and run from the jwm menu. At this point my desktop will lock up.
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, xwin.
Use the WM switcher to change to openbox. If the taskbar hasn't vanished, reboot.
My openbox taskbar is gone.
Open pfbpanel from the menu and look at the 'Enter maximum width of taskbar' field. Mine is now set to 150. Change it to match your display width, click OK in the first tab. My taskbar is back.

Whatever causes jwm to lock up somehow borks the taskbar configuration in openbox.

I just had a thought while writing this. Unfortunately I don't have time to put it to the test until tonight.
I'll report back.

Could anyone tell me how to list all exported bash variables from the terminal? I wonder if one of my exported variables is clobbering an existing one.

Solution:
I then will compare the two savefiles to see what is different. It must be something in the two laptop configurations that caused the sound to go away or be blocked.

Any clue's as to where I should start looking?

-Bruce.

Basic workings of a save file. When you make a save file, it contains settings and configurations for the computer it was made on. Those setting are specific for that computer and used by Puppy when booted.
Those settings and configurations will not work on a different computer.
A separate save file is needed for each computer.

A USB flash drive will boot fresh on any computer, but when you make a save file, you have dedicated it to that computer.
To use on another computer.
Boot with option puppy pfix=ram
make a new save file for this computer.
Now when you boot Puppy you get option to choose which save file to use.

2-byte, I have thought some more overnight.

1. Boot fresh (pfix=ram) and *do not* change the resolution with the first run wizard, but Menu -> Shutdown ->. Exit to prompt and run 'xorgwizard'. Select the resolution you want there. Ah, better yet, boot pfix=ram *and* pfix=nox. Then you will stop at a prompt. Run xorgwizard and then xwin to start X.

2. If you still have the problem then it is not the resolution change, so step 2, boot like in #1 but do not change anything with first run wizard.

3. Boot like #2 and immediately install the Instant Update 001.

4. Try to use 3HD Version 2 Take 2. There are changes shinobar and rerwin made to the first run wizard. You might want to just do this first. If you like 5.1.1 then I hope you will really like 3HD.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=70736

More -> 2-byte, I see, the pet is your PupSave backup. I just ran it in 3HD and it worked--no problem. 3HD has a version of gtkdialog4--the next Instant Update to 5.2.8 will have gtkdialog4. I would like to include PupSave backup in that Instant Update and in the next version of 3HD--it seems very useful. As you say, the current version has no desktop entry but we can fix that easy enough when it is time for the update. Probably no updates until after Slacko is released. Thanks.

Add, question. The backup had the icon of a binary and no sfs extension. Could you explain how that works. Why not back it up with the sfs extension? I added an sfs extension but then I got a message that it was an sfs3 filesystem? Thanks again.

Hi nimbus, If I understand correctly, you can press g to make the gui ("transport") appear and disappear. You can also press f to go from full screen and back.

All seems to be okay now with my install of Pfind. No idea why I got that strange result before.

Thanks for your help as ever. What a great release 528 is !

The pet is here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=371325#371325 On some setups I have installed Xorg_High and Firefox from quickpet with no problem. Other than that nothing.

EDIT : Forgot to mention that the desktop file has been removed from that pet linked above.

Yes, on one setup with nothing installed, just reboots and restarts loses the openbox taskbar. Jwm menu issue is present in all other 528 frugal installs. FWIW Lupu511 has been running perfectly on this box since the day it was released.

1) After initial setup and using the firstrun wizard to set timezone and change res to 1440x900. No other changes. After two or three boots the openbox taskbar disappears and will not return. Switch to jwm via WM Switcher and taskbar appears. Switch back to openbox, no taskbar.

2) Install a simple pet by clicking the pet in rox (bash script with menu). Click the menu item in jwm, screen locks. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, xwin brings the system back. Sometimes the screen does not lock but the app does not run. top shows no process for it. The app runs fine from a desktop icon or clicking the script or the /usr/share/applications/ .desktop file. Switch back to openbox and the menu item works.

2-byte, We haven't seen either of these before, to my knowledge. The Instant Update shouldn't hurt, but it was not designed to fix either problem.

On #2, what is the pet you are installing? We test Lucid pets but don't test all pets of course. Does this happen with *any* pet?
On #1, It seems you are saying no other programs/pets have been installed??? Nothing else has been done, except reboots???

2 repeatable issues/bugs to report, lupu528 downloaded and installed 9-24-11.
Frugal install /sda1/lupu528/ on ext3, booting from grub.

1) After initial setup and using the firstrun wizard to set timezone and change res to 1440x900. No other changes. After two or three boots the openbox taskbar disappears and will not return. Switch to jwm via WM Switcher and taskbar appears. Switch back to openbox, no taskbar.

Switch back to openbox and the menu item works.

This repeated through 4 fresh frugal installs with or without Xorg-high. All md5sums are correct.

Does this need the instant update? I downloaded it from the link on the first post two days ago.
