Subject description: laptop clevo D400s ,sis650 graphics integrated graphics card
 

In a very old laptop (clevo D400s ,sis650 graphics integrated graphics card and year about 2004) I boot with a clean Jessie Dog 32 without any problems.

Both Stretch Dog 32 (from this topic) & a stretch dog 32( made with the debootstrap script) reach the time that startx is starting and then the laptop seems to go to sleep mode (powerlight blinking everything else powers down).

I suspect that it might be driver/firmware issue. Is there a way to get the same firmwares/drivers that are used in JessieDog32 to the Stretch 32 linuxes? How could I do that? I even tried nomodeset parameter but did not work.

Do you have any other idea?

Hi trister, maybe try to boot with the Jessie kernel (3.16)
Here's a "package" 32-bit (has newest Jessie kernel version included as squashfs)
https://fredx181.github.io/StretchDog/NoRepo/k-3.16.0-4-pae.tar.gz
From extracted folder "k-3.16.0-4-pae", copy the files to the Stretch "live" folder, the initrd1.xz and vmlinuz1 need to be replaced (better first make backup of originals, or rename)

I tested this on Stretch and works fine, btw, boots faster than the Stretch kernel for me.

Fred

Thanks fred.
I tried it but I got the same result. Laptop seems to goto sleep mode instead of starting desktop.

I think I'll just check which stretchdog32 squashfs run in this older laptop.Maybe I'll be lucky and will all run...

*** Updated "upgrade-kernel" ***

Made some changes, takes less time, it has also dependency "elinks" now, this for to check at https://fredx181.github.io/StretchDog/ for latest aufs and squashfs kernel modules I compiled, currently:
https://fredx181.github.io/StretchDog/aufs_squashfs-k4.9.0-8
Install :
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install upgrade-kernel


Also made slightly different script upgrade-kernel2, request from trister, see here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1007597#1007597
With that one the kernel install is not being part of the filesystem or changes (installs in chroot)
Just needs manual copying the created files to the "live" frugal install folder.
Perhaps this is better way to upgrade the kernel, any opinions ?

Another thing you can try is to boot with "live-boot", maybe that works.

Ran new upgrade-kernel and then remastered. All ran as expected.

After I do an-

apt-get update
apt-get install upgrade-kernel

I get-

root@live:~# uname -a
Linux live 4.9.0-3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.30-2+deb9u5 (2017-09-19) x86_64 GNU/Linux
root@live:~#

Am I using your latest 64bit kernel (in the 4.9.* series) or am I missing something here?

Did you run it after install ?
From Menu > System > Upgrade-kernel (frugal install only)
Then after reboot with changes saved you should see kernel 4.9.0-8 when running uname -a:

Thanks for your help fred.

I tried to boot with live-boot but I wasn't able. Don't know what to change this porteus boot option:

title porteus dogstretch_deblive32/ RAM
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /dogstretch_deblive32/live/initrd1.xz
kernel /dogstretch_deblive32/live/vmlinuz1 from=/dogstretch_deblive32
initrd /dogstretch_deblive32/live/initrd1.xz

That would be for live-boot (needs to have initrd.img in your live folder):
Code:
title dogstretch_deblive32/ live-boot
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /dogstretch_deblive32/live/initrd.img
kernel /dogstretch_deblive32/live/vmlinuz1 boot=live live-media-path=/dogstretch_deblive32/live union=aufs
initrd /dogstretch_deblive32/live/initrd.img


This is without persistence.
Needs some more for that, but let's first see if it makes a difference for you.

Fred

Tried it but it stop at a promptsaying (initramfs) : (if i remember it correctly)

Thanks again fred.

Also, another irrelevant question.
Is it possible in the EXIT: boot option to disable the save session message when shutting down (or at least make default the Do Not Save option) ?
I want to save the session only when I want (eg with save2flash).

Yes, Bob asked about that a while back (NoSave as default), needs some script editing, see here:

Hi trister - I think this might be what you're looking for? ;

Downloaded and had a try the "DevuanLive_ascii_jwm-amd64.iso", copied the live folder to my hda2 and boot with copy2ram option

Running smooth and stable. But found that hda1 and hda2 were automatically mounted at bootup ? is there any boot parameter that prevents such automatical mounting of hda1 and hda2 ?

Fatdog64, when running in ram, do not mount harddisk until desktop icon clicked by user.
