Hi Dan, since you have kernel 4.19.0-5-amd64 installed it should be this:

Code:
apt install linux-headers-4.19.0-5-amd64 nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver


Quote:
# apt install linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's/[^-]*-[^-]*-//') nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver

-create xorg.conf by installing and running nvidia-xconfig.


Above only works when booted with latest kernel (4.19.0-6 at this time)
(upgrade-kernel can be used to create new kernel .squashfs + initrd + vmlinuz1)

Fred

On a DevuanDog install, I ran "upgrade-kernel". I dropped those new files into its "live" folder and rebooted. This got me k4.19.0-6.

I built both the Broadcom wl WiFi driver and the nvidia Xorg driver. Both loaded and worked correctly - no "exec format error".

I then upgraded a Stretch install to k4.19.0-6 using the DevuanDog files.

I installed the wl.ko wifi module and blacklist.conf file from DevuanDog into Stretch. The Broadcom WiFi worked!

I didn't try to pull the nvidia Xorg driver over from Devuan - that looked too complicated.

Thanks.

Bill

*** Updated mklive-beowulf ***

Download (and make executable) then run 'mklive-beowulf' script , e.g.
Code:
./mklive-beowulf -gui

(for use on 'Dog' based systems, see below for appimages, for use from a Puppy OS)

Web Page

Changes and fixes:
- Changed the GUI for editing packages to be installed (with tabs using yad notebook), more convenient IMO because of better overview and more space in the different sections. (see pics below)
- Removed the 'Kiosk' option from Desktop Choices (outdated)
(for a new prepared Kiosk ISO version, here: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=116976)

Appimages for to build DevuanDog Beowulf. For use on most modern Puppies (dependencies included), make executable before running:
32-bit appimage: mklive-beowulf32
64-bit appimage: mklive-beowulf64

Run e.g. from partition (Linux filesystem formatted, e.g. ext3 or ext4) with at least 3GB free space:
Code:
./mklive-beowulf32 -gui

And follow the instructions.

Fred

Built one with the new script.

Did Xfce version minus Firefox and Flashplayer choice this time. Seems to have built fine.

Just watched a few youtube videos on my portable firefox.

Will try to install my nvidia drivers later this week sometime.

PostPosted: Fri 18 Oct 2019, 19:38    Post subject: flashplayerchoice hangs  

I just built an iso using this script, and it seems that flashplayerchoice does not work. When I launch it, it just stays at the "Please wait, checking for updates" screen. launching from the terminal provides no output, and I don't know offhand where to find more. I am looking into it so I can provide more information, but this is the first/only setback I have had with what is otherwise my favourite daily driver. Thanks for all of the great work, and please don't take this as a complaint. Ultimately it is really minor.

Hi Diogenes08

Yes, that's right, thanks, probably it's because of a change at the adobe end, should be fixed now (modified the flashplayerchoice script), install the new version (1.0.6) with synaptic or apt (after reloading the package lists).
