Hello all,

Here is a few bugs i found with Dingo Alpha 6.

- You can start/install .PUP files

- When unpacking files i get the error "wrapper exited with error all the time even though everything is unpacked perfectly.

- After some random bootups the screen is black. Then i need to "ctrl-backspace" and type xwin to start up X

Best regards,
Johan

I get this all the time (puppy300-retro frugal) when I save the .pup / .pet outside my pup_save (vfat). If I save inside my pup_save, no error messages.

Testing at the San Antonio Public Library. It took three 'scans' and 'choosing' the WIFI berfore the WIFI in this HP zv6000 laptop would stay on. I was then able to auto DHCP to get on line. Am using it now.

3.01, with no 'bug fixes' only takes one 'scan' and one auto DHCP to connect.

Will try at San Antonio Collage later.

I was having the same problem as lobster earlier until I downloaded the 2.6.23.12 version and everything is working better.

Subject description: mksquashfs produces sfs files not mountable in earlier Puppies
 

I don't know whether this is a "bug" or a "feature," but, I used

mksquashfs ./* trashedsystem.sfs

to make an archive of a trashed filesystem...while running tmxxine 'Vision' from live-CD..'Vision' uses kernel 2.6.24rc8...and...

..the resulting trashedsystem.sfs is not mountable by Puppy 2.17-1.

Nor mountable in Sabayon 1.1 PE, which uses a 2.6.23-something kernel. dmesg | tail did advise that I should update my kernel.

trashedsystem.sfs is mountable in 'Vision' --I presume it would also be mountable in Barry's "stock" 4-alpha-6 which has a 2.6.24 kernel, though haven't tried. I wonder if it is mountable in the earlier 4-alphas.

In /etc/ld.so.conf, there should be no /opt/qt4/lib and /opt/mozilla.org/lib
In /etc/mtab, what is /dev/root ?
Is it better to compile for i386 instead of i686 ?

libXss.so.1 is missing. (needed for new skype beta)

Sorry - I haven't had a chance to read through the thread, so there will likely be some duplication. Some of this is more FYI than expecting anyone to do anything about it.

Blurb
Dingo is awesome!
- It seems very solid/stable already.
- It looks truly abominable, but is great if I change the JWM, GTK, and icon themes to normal/standard/whatever the most traditional ones are called.
- It seems very much faster than Puppy 2. I am almost tempted to upgrade from my highly customised Grafpup 104 SmileSmileSmile Browsing (esp. sf.net) is particularly fast. I wonder why?
- I think a lot of the recent improvements are very much addressing real useability, especially for non-geeks, which is great.

More Useful observations/experience
- When I shutdown, it does not turn off my PC. Puppy always has before - is this intentional? Should I provide more information?

- It loads the drivers and everything properly for my soundcard (PCI with a fortemedia fm801 chip) properly, but never turns the sound on. I've checked volumes and muting etc. Grafpup 2 is the same. It works in Puppy 2.16. I've tried to find answers, but maybe someone can point me in the right direction.

- the alltray package is broken - try launching most GTK2 applications with it, and you will get a string of error messages. This is a pity, because it is very useful. I have the same problem with the version I compiled on Puppy 1 (when I say you mention it here). I posted a question to the alltray message group, but now I can't find that, and it needs a new maintainer.

- It has become very confusing with JWM having so many configuration files. I changed the focus mode with the jwm config tool, then edited one of the files manually, then changed the focus mode back with the jwm config tool, but it didn't actually do anything and I had to change it back manually. It also seems to ignore some settings, e.g. I added a line to include jwmrc-personal2, as I was lazy and it has some key bindings not in jwmrc-personal, but they won't work for some reason.
Also, what happened to the warning in .jwmrc to edit the other files instead?
Also, I thought somebody was rewriting the jwm configuration manager? Was I right about this? Barry seems to have rewritten just the theme selection or something, and some of the other (basic) functions are broken like they have been for a year or two. Maybe I should have a look at it... seems like something even I might be able to do. Also, I think a font option in the JWM theme selector would be good.

-Can I suggest having something other than MTPaint as the default action when clicking on a JPEG? People are much more likely to be viewing a JPEG than editing it, and MTPaint isn't great for this.

-What happened to Glipper?

-I have some very common network cards that used to have their driver (tulip) autodected by Puppy, but they haven't been for a number of versions now. Do we try to get everything autodetected (i.e. should I post more information), or not?

-Please can we have xev?

-I had a number of problems with Gnumeric, particularly graphs not being drawn. Hopefully these things will have been fixed in 1.8

-Do we have anything that points users to the easiest way to install dictionaries for Abiword? .pet packages even?

-If you open ChmSee (without opening a chm) it freezes or something and you have to kill it.

-Even if I set the user level thing in Xine to "master of the known universe" most of the tabs in the options dialogue say they are not available at this "user experience level". What does this mean?

-If I boot up Puppy and open Xine, it crashes. If I open it again it crashes again. If I open a file with Xine, it works, and continues to work thereafter.

Probably the two things I miss most are not being able to get the graphical view of mounted partition usage from the memory indicator on the taskbar, and the old volume control in the taskbar Sad

----------------EDIT---------------------
This is the xine error message:
Code:
# xine

Hi,

I've got a fundimental boot problem that seems quite odd to me.
I've tried 3.95 and 3.96 with the same face value problem: can't find pup_396.sys at boot, and I'm dropped into the initial ram disk shell.

Ok, first thing I try is mounting the CD, it seems ok, all the files are on it.
Ok, so the next thing I try is iso checksum, which looks ok to me:
Code:
sh-3.00# md5sum /dev/hda
e19a7f96ece3df4938a1fb74ee92c08f  /dev/hda
sh-3.00# md5sum /mnt/hdd7/puppy-3.96-seamonkey-k2.6.24.iso
e19a7f96ece3df4938a1fb74ee92c08f  /mnt/hdd7/puppy-3.96-seamonkey-k2.6.24.iso

sh-3.00# wget ftp://ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/test/puppy-4.00-dingo-alpha6/puppy-3.96-seamonkey-k2.6.24.iso.md5.txt

Track 1: Data track, 85.01 MiB (89135104 bytes)
  ISO9660 file system
    Volume name "CDROM"
    Application "GENISOIMAGE ISO 9660/HFS FILESYSTEM CREATOR (C) 1993 E.YOUNGDALE (C) 1997-2006 J.PEARSON/J.SCHILLING (C) 2006-2007 CDRKIT TEAM"
    Data size 85.01 MiB (89135104 bytes, 43523 blocks of 2 KiB)
    El Torito boot record, catalog at 26
      Bootable non-emulated image, starts at 27, preloads 2 KiB
        ISOLINUX boot code


So I have a little look-see inside the initial ram disk shell.
I notice that I can't access any drives via ide drive nodes (e.g. hda) even though those node names are there, but the drives are accessible via the scsi node names, and the /dev/sr0 is my cdrom drive.

But I can't mount it. The mount command just fails no matter what I try.
I notice that the insmod command crashes with a Seg-Fault. and modprobe can't install the module (.ko.gz?) files.
disktype doesn't want to let me in on what my cdrom is, its output looks something like this:
Code:
# disktype /dev/sr0

--- /dev/sr0
Block device, size 85.01 MiB (89135104 bytes)
CD-ROM, 1 track, CDDB disk ID 02024401
Track 1: Data track, 85.01 MiB (89135104 bytes)
       can't read a sector x
       can't read a sector y

but guess_fstype does work.
Code:
# guess_fstype /dev/sr0
iso9660


So does anyone know whats going on? I'm a bit lost.

Has anyone else had this problem happen to them?

My hardware is an ASUS CD/DVD drive, with an AMD based motherboard, AMD cpu.
My IDE hard disk is accessable no probs from the initial ramdisk via /dev/sda.

I don't know if this is relevant or not, but I notice that Sabayon Gentoo puts my (1) scsi drive at the top of the chain, e.g. sda, and my 3 ATA drives as sdb sdc sdd. Dingo, by contrast, puts the scsi drive at the bottom as sdd. Perhaps this is causing confusion?

Hi SHS,

Its not the ordering of drives thats a problem. I have only 1 ide disk (sda) and 1 ide cdrom/dvd (sr0). There is a usb chip reader which gets drive nodes sdb-sde.
I am wondering if it is a bug/issue in the new linux kernel ide-as-scsi drivers?
It would be nice if someone else has this problem can let me know their motherboard ide driver filename and/or chipset.
Here is the computers pci list from elspci -l running from puppy 2.13.

Hi Jesse,

Can't help ya. Old MUT's guess_fstype works correctly where it should, and doesn't work where it shouldn't, on my Dingo.

disktype works right for me too--on /dev/sr0. No idea why it's seeing your sr0 CD/DVD as hda. Forgive it if this is an ignorant question, but, Is AMD mainboard + Intel ICH a common combination?

PMount and mount work correctly here too, even on the scsi drive.

insmod does segfault though.

PostPosted: Wed 20 Feb 2008, 01:59    Post subject: Chat in Dingo Alpha 6 - can't get it to work  

Hello All,

First, let me admit that this is the first time I've ever tried to chat.

I read the rel help page. I clicked on the chat icon. It finally started
continuously telling me GeoW was not registered. I couldn't find a
clue as to how to register.

After a while, I gave up and rebooted into Puppy 3.01.

Found the chat routine on the menu.

It just worked! beautiful - although I couldn't figure out how to enter
multiple chat forums.

I was hoping that the access would somehow carry over, but when I
rebooted to Dingo Alpha 6 I still couldn't chat.

I think it's a bug, but maybe I just don't know what I'm doing.

Any help would be appreciated,

GeoW
