Sorry, figured you already sent it off to Nathan. Your latest probepart2 & probedisk3 work very well for me and I'm amazed at how simple your probedisk3 script is. Very nice work indeed.

Hi,

A problem I posted about way back is still with us in the 20070426 iso, as follows:

I made a CF card with correctly booting Grafpup system. On shutdown I instructed it to 'save to partition' (that being hda).
On reboot the system no longer boots, the error information being:

Mounting none on graf_new failed: Invalid argument
<Something about graf_ro2 being overlapped>
Last few lines of ....:
DEV1PUP=yes
PUPSAVE=''
System then goes into infinite loop in atkbd.c

The old workaround was to use a save-file, I'll test that this still works now.
Simon.

Dougal,

Just tried the probedisk3 script on both my machines.

Your new script detects the multi-slot usb card reader as /dev/sda...sdd (which is great)
And on the other, VIA Sata machine, I get my Sata drive as /dev/sda and the CF IDE adaptor as /dev/hda. All correct!

And probepart2 worked ok for me first time round.

I too looked at the script, nice and elegant.

Is there a package I can use to view/print a .dwg file? I have just been emailed one and I found something on the irfanview site to download for windoze.

Well I went looking and there are actually very few options for viewing .dwg files in Linux. There is one that looks promising called Linux Drawing Viewer, which I saw on sourceforge. I might try and compile it tonight. The other option would be to install Wine and try a few of the freeware autocad viewers that are out there for Windows.

I'd like you to try something else too, Mike, to get Kino installed. Open gpkgtool and press the update button, which should grab the latest package list off the server and merge in the changes I've made since beta was released. You should be able to install packages normally then rather than having to download them with a browser.

What you did wrong with the new Kino package was that you just decompressed it in /root rather than installing it. The gunzip command would not have even exploded the package into a directory, so you should have a file "kino-1.0.tar" sitting around in /root unless you already deleted it.

So guys, in general, is the new probedisk ready for the iso? I'd love to see this resolved.

gamfa - the driver for that card has not been compiled yet, in fact it is one I haven't run across at all before. Until very recently it seems there was no support whatsoever for it under Linux. I did a search and did find a driver relased by the company, in source form, so I'll put it on my todo list. However, be prepared for a tough time getting it set up.

Thanks everybody,
Nathan

Thanks Nathan, Linux drawing viewer sounds good! Can't wait to try it.

Kino starts ok now but I can't capture with firewire. Got this in the terminal:

The program 'kino' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc'.
(Details: serial 5180 error_code 11 request_code 140 minor_code 19)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

All,

I've been trying to get all 3 of my CF cards to be bootable in my VIA 'server' machine (the one with Sata as described above in this thread). I have the following brands: Kingston, SanDisk, and PQI.

I'm still having problems doing this using the Puppy Installer, and I'm still not much closer to a solution. I have not had repeatable success formatting CF cards in FAT under Grafpup, I am unconvinced that mkdosfs actually works. So my reference formatting system is my Ixus camera.

The symptoms are usually like this:

When using a card formatted like this, the orange window part of the installer process notes the following:

Mount: Mounting /dev/... on /mnt/data failed: Invalid argument
/mnt/data is device /dev/root
extlinux: cannot open device /dev/root

- and the installer continues, copying files into -presumably- /dev/null and then stops. It takes a lot less time than usual - obviously /dev/null is faster than a CF card!

I am beginning to think that there is a subtlety about the Superfloppy mode, ie. referring to the card as /dev/sdc rather than /dev/sdc1, which is confusing either the Puppy Installer script.

Another issue:

I have also noticed that Pmount often describes CF cards as 'ext3' when in fact they are FAT16 (should say 'vfat' I guess). Also when they have no partition table, they seem to still be reported as ext3. Is there some decision-making in Pmount which 'falls through' to ext3 if the format cannot be determined?

This was mentioned in the past, but I don't remember what happened with it...

Note that there's a newer version of the installer, with a few fixes, so it might be best that Nathan modify it and post it here.

Concerning the mounting problem: you posted
Code:
Mounting /dev/... on /mnt/data failed:


Is that the exact quote? I mean, was there really no device where the "..." is?

No, it didn't say that, it's just that my notes were unintelligible!

I think it said /dev/sdc but since I couldn't read it, I didn't want to post it. sdc is the correct address for the CF card that I was using.

I'd like to try that updated installer, as you might imagine.... hope it can be posted.

Cheers,
Simon.

Nathan, I updated pawdioconverter to 0.8 which fixes a bug and adds some enhancements.

I'll post the grafpup version here.

It's missing OpenGL. I'll add that dependency to the entry in packages.txt, but for now install the package "xorg_OPENGL" and it should run.

Nathan
