Thanks Dan
that gui save option selector that pops up calling for a shutdown is just the feature I was hoping to find

PostPosted: Tue 25 Feb 2020, 21:48    Post subject: JWM tray calendar  

Here's igucal, the JWM tray calendar used with most puppies.
Compiled for BusterDog64. Thanks to Iguleder http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=62750&start=30&sid=5027fa3ce7fd1483d10f4dcc4088ee84

1. Install igucal in /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin

2. Edit /root/.jwmrc and change <Clock format="%H:%M">xclock</Clock>
to <Clock format="%H:%M">exec:igucal</Clock>

3. Save your changes and restart jwm. The calendar should pop up when you click on the tray time.

gsimplecal also works well and is available from the debian repos.

Hi Fred and others,

I find frugal installs useful for keeping dedicated installs for a specific application or usage.

I am not sure if BusterDog is my best choice for a wireguard install, but dogs in general have proved very useful for using apt to install .debs (versus a puppy with deb capabilities through PPM)

from the wireguard website https://www.wireguard.com/

Code:
# echo "deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ unstable main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/unstable.list
# printf 'Package: *\nPin: release a=unstable\nPin-Priority: 90\n' > /etc/apt/preferences.d/limit-unstable
# apt update
# apt install wireguard


returns output that ends.....

see the attachment for complete output.

your thoughts on what to do next would be appreciated, or a pointer if this has already been covered in another dog thread

thanks

Above suggests to me that you must also have the devx sfs for that kernel/distribution also loaded. i.e. needs a build environment since wants to build a new module. A devx provides a build/compiling environment and is also available for download along with the main distro iso. Once you've downloaded the devx squashedfilesystem you can load it by finding it in the filemanager and right-click on the sfs file to be provided with menu including option to load it (which you want to do).

Hello,

I've been trying to setup busterdog with mklive-buster64.
What packages should I put during running mklive-buster64 to get every possible firmware for Graphics cards and motherboards (the other hardware wifi etc so far I think it is covered by your extra firmware squashfs file).

I want the initial version to contain as much GPU/MB drivers as possible (even if size gets too big).
I've put StretchDog (made with) mklive to PCs ranging from P4 to i5 and in some cases I couldn't avoid running with nomodeset (usually for older P4s + in my i5 -as mentioned in another of my topics).


Thanks for all the good work.

There may be no solution to this. Debian has stopped supporting some old graphics cards.

Have you checked the Debian repo to see if a driver is still available?

Test of BusterDog from 2019-12-29
Tried both 32bit and 64bit versions
Ethernet interface is not recognised
Broadcom BCM 57788 - uses tg3 kernel module as driver and this is loaded.

I did the substitution to replace the 4.19 kernel with the 3.16.0-4 and the interface then works, but this is only available for 32bit?
By the way, I had to provide the file beowulf-i486.sgn in order for this to work (or perhaps could have renamed buster-i486.sgn?).

This interface has always been OK with lots of kernels in lots of Puppies tested. The only one I recall not working was Wary5 and I fixed it by recompiling the tg3 module and BarryK then put my build into Wary. Racy5 with the 3.x kernel was OK at that time.
Ethernet interface works OK in StretchDog64

Hi OscarTalks, thanks for testing.

I use Broadcom BCM5787M (also using tg3 kernel module) but cannot reproduce the problem.
In case you didn't try yet, "Restart Networks" from frisbee may help.
If not can you try k-4.19.0-8 from here ?
https://github.com/DebianDog/BusterDog/releases/tag/v0.2
It has changed initrd1.xz (more kernel modules loaded).

Fred

Code:
dmesg | grep -i firmware


If the tg3 firmware is missing, get firmware-misc-nonfree.

The dmesg | grep -i firmware command returns no output.
I do have the 99-firmware module loaded as a test but it doesn't seem to help.
The tigon tg3 firmware files appear to be there.

A little earlier, when I had k3.16 loaded to give me a connection, I tried running the upgrade kernel thing from the Menu. It produced a 4.19.0-8 kernel as expected, but when I tried booting with this kernel the interface was still not recognised.
Tried the 4.19.0-8 from the github link above - still no interface unfortunately.

The DpupStretch by Radky with a 4.19 kernel works OK, as does BarryK's EasyPup with an even later 5.4.20 kernel, so it seems to be something rather specific between this hardware and this batch of kernels.

Edit:-
Tried firmware-misc-nonfree but no change
In frisbee the Restart Networks button is greyed out because it is in the Wireless tab which is not operational.
There is the Refresh button in the Interfaces tab, but it does not fix it.

FWIW, I have a machine with the BCM57781 adapter and it works fine in k4.19.0-6-amd64.

Hi, I have been using busterdog to connect to the internet thru mullvad vpn using wireguard. The wireguard install makes for a quite large /changes.

The current install requires I build wireguard against the bullesye kernel which is installed using backports.

Another complication is frisbee needs to be replaced with a different utility on account of a conflict with openresolv, which is recommended to make dns work correctly to prevent leaks when using the vpn with debian. I now connect my laptop wireless with network-manager.

I have tried to build a busterdog with mklive-buster64 without frisbee, but it fails. (yes, I saw the note that says this is not recommended, and presume it is the cause for the failure)

As wireguard support will be included in the 5.6 kernel, I thought it might be worthwhile to use it any way I can until that kernel makes it way to stable. To that end, I would like to ask If there a way I can build a busterdog with network manager, (Ie without frisbee) or even better with the bullseye kernel with out using backports after the fact?

https://www.wireguard.com/install/

BTW, the backports install method has changed from the one mentioned a few post back, and busterdog also requires nftables run wireguard.

What exactly fails ? For me it builds ok when I specify network-manager-gnome (and gnome-keyring) instead of frisbee (or peasywifi) on the "Base install 2" section:
Code:
yad gtkdialog obshutdown pup-volume-monitor network-manager-gnome gnome-keyring ... ... ...


For installing the backports kernel (you may have seen, but mentioning just in case):
