Hello again.

Ok. I still can't boot it, I still get a sw.root error "44.something" during boot-up.

This is the entry in my menu.lst.
Code:
title Slaxxx-5.7.1-NO-pae
root (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/Slaxxx-5.7.1-NO-pae/lance/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=196508 root=/dev/ram0 pmedia=idehd pdev=sda1 psubdir=Slaxxx-5.7.1-NO-pae pupsfs=sda1:/Slaxxx-5.7.1-NO-pae/puppy_slacko_5.7.sfs max_loop=9 loglevel=2 pfix=nocopy,fsck
initrd (hd0,0)/Slaxxx-5.7.1-NO-pae/lance/initrd.gz
boot
This is where I put it: /mnt/sda1/Slaxxx-5.7.1-NO-pae
and this is the tree:
Code:
[/mnt/sda1/Slaxxx-5.7.1-NO-pae]>tree -fish
.
[172M]  ./devx_Slaxxx_5.7.1.sfs

1 directory, 12 files

To put it bluntly: is it me or is it you? Laughing

BFN.

Euh... Not funny. I did report on your "original" but you erased all those posts!!!!
"Give me a ring" when it's really ready for testing. I've got other things to do, you know.

PostPosted: Thu 28 Mar 2019, 15:33    Post subject: Slaxxx on C720  

Hi ttuuxxx,

Tried your slaxxx iso on an Acer C720.
Was under the assumption it would be based on Sailors 5.7.1 (kernel 3.18.117 or so).
But uname -r showed it was 3.4.xx

So it did not support audio on this platform. And it does not support the touchpad.

For the rest it looked familiar, booted right to desktop, and had a working FF66.0
WIFI worked, did not test bluetooth.

Too bad for the old kernel.

Maybe in the near future....?

PostPosted: Thu 28 Mar 2019, 22:01    Post subject: about support list  

This is an about:support listing that indicates 'important' changes from default I used in the alpha of this spin. Useable in FF66 also. I will opine that UO-lite and these configs makes it snappier, and less memory intensive./MHO

3/29/19 EDIT: The listing has had to be altered. There is a delayed breakage of Firefox that occurs when scanning for the browser update (this HAS to occur... used to be turned off)

After I remove the targz file, a new one will be placed here.

PostPosted: Sat 30 Mar 2019, 05:03    Post subject: tuxatomicpup ISO  

tuxatomicpup is being developed as a beta, and I have erased the link to the iso. It will be based on this alpha release. Glib-schemeas has been added but no 'ff' profile modifier. YouTube sound when streaming does not occur. It is advanced enough for Intel Atom users, but not recommended for others due to Meltdown/Spectre.

I added FreeOffice-697-enUS,and removed shares, servers, gimp, and evince (removing evince means that epdfview haas to be manually linked. ISO size is 208.4Mb, memory footprint will be about 670Mb when installed. Recommended is 1Gb partition size and 2Gb memory stick, with a 256Mb save file (512Mb if modifying this spin).

***update 4/19/19:CUPS has been patched using the 'old' EONS-17 symlinks ( I got one wrong, and printing failed). ***

Regards
8Geee

This alpha version so far has been working very well.
I changed the busted post to reserved in case i get inspired to make a TuxAtomicPup. I need to remove the servers and shares. But its rather small(by today's staandards) at 200Mb ISO as is.

Regards

General question...

I see these directories

/etc and /etc_1
/var and /var_1

What difference, if any, are there between the _1 version and the 'normal' version of these files?

What affects the choice if anything? would a symlink work?

is this a profile or glibc or gtk need?

Thanks
8Geee

Have to bump this as I'm having problems with the default CUPS 1.4.8. It prints test pages, but no files (text or PDF). Just stalls.

This bug has been solved... and old set of symlinks from the EONS 17 spin worked here.
This involves libpng 12 and 14, and libjpeg7. I had forgotton to alter one symlink.

I can now try to update CUPS to a more secure 2.2.11.

SOLVED (again)

Regards

As mentioned above, bugs with printing fixed, and the alpha spin has been modified to work with Atom CPU's. Possting from the complete remaster.

Yet to do
Update Cups to 2.2.11
update busybox to 1.30

One nitpik here, I noticed that when I got ducks-in-a-row, upon remaster the default settings (timezone and server-name page) was skipped. One has to correct at least the timezone using Menu --> Setup --> Quick Setup.

Regards
8Geee

PostPosted: Fri 13 Sep 2019, 12:54    Post subject: OpenSSL out of Support  

The BETA version reverted OpenSSL from 1.1.1 --> 1.1.0. The reversion has gone out of support as of Sept. 10, 2019 (final update)

Meanwhle, back at the alpha, the attempted update of OpenSSL 1.1.1b --> d superficially failed. I deliberately removed the Open ssl 1.0.0 file and installed symlink to 1.1 and up popped three errors in openssl version... NO glibc 2.16, 2.17, or 2.25 found. naturally, I will reinstall the file, and check again. But the originaal glibc2.15 is all thats installed.

Regards
8Geee
