Subject description: reports and bugs for Alpha 4 of Kennel
 


This is Barrys Woof build of
Upup using Woof Alpha 4 (Ubuntu packages used to build Puppy)
http://www.puppylinux.com/blog/?viewDetailed=00662

Reminder this is an Alpha build - test and experimental
For play time only
Don't use cutting edge technology if you are a new Pup
- who am I kidding - you ain't gonna listen
Be careful if you have important data on your HD Rolling Eyes

It is one of our potential Kennel (Puppy 5) breeds

Just to remind anyone trying this from CD?DVD
run puppy = pfix=ram during boot up to ensure you do not interfere with any existing save.sfs on the hard disk

I look forward to the Beta as this is very much an Alpha build
I love the black and gray default desktop that is loaded - a great option for Alphas - and I just like it anyways . . . Smile

The screen (even though I selected xorg) looks more like xvesa
- might it have jumped to that if xorg failed?
The screen is offset to the right slightly - my TFT monitor auto button does not fix it
so would have to shift about 10 pixels to the left manually
- see later for update

The Seamonkey window is not responding to the scroll wheel for moving down web pages.

I tried installing the Fullerscreen presentation program (comes with this build so no need to download) had to remember to press f11 to activate slideshow mode . . .

The package manager is much simpler in presentation and I tried installing kexi database from several locations without success

I did download the devx.sfs too - intending to look at Valide and Genie but this build is too early for me to use without extreme frustration, so did not try it.

Anyway just quick feedback before I try improving the screen display Smile

Be interested how our intrepid Puppy testers get on.
How are you faring?

Update
OK it was xorg but it jumped down a resolution.
pressing ctrl + alt + backspace and running 'xorgwizard'
I was able to select one resolution higher than my monitor could take and then the available safe options included safe 'your monitor can handle' options which I was able to select and use.
The TFT auto adjust button also worked - so now I have the resolution I am used to - Embarassed seems to have drifted to the right again and will not autocorrect.
This was a problem I think in DIngo? Was solved . . .

Xorg is very sluggish - I have a fast video card and it should be better . . .

Valide appears in the menu when adding devx but not Glade?
I also added a couple of standard Puppy sfs (OpenOffice and XaraLX)
- seem to be working fine . . .

Right gonna add the devx and then do another update to this thread. So far have preferred Dpup and Spup BUT the previous Upup did not even get to desktop on my system - so progress . . .

Thanks Barry Smile

Booted pfix=ram as advised.
Set up eth0.
Clicked on reboot, created save file.
On booting, I got:

Performing a switch-root to the layered file system...Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

9-year old m/c, Intel Celeron 600MHz 256MB ram.

Gerry, this probably means that upup-461.sfs isn't copied to /mnt/home. Astonishing as you seem to have been able to create a pupsave file.

For xsane to work a libgimpXX package has to be installed.
Type xsane in a console and you have the name. Use the PPM to get it.

In My case with an imbedded scanner in my Epson stylus PHOTO RX600 I couldn't have color scanning. Failure to create a cms profile or something like this.

A nice addition is the timezone configuration at first boot. Great.

Maybe it was mentioned.
But I have to push up the volume of front and surround each time after a boot.
Escape should save I think, but it doesn't.

Be'em- upup-461.sfs is there in /mnt/home/. I looked at permissions (using 412, of course). It had only owner r/w/e, whereas the 412 sfs has group/world read as well. So I changed 461 permissions to match, but still the same result.

If I want to add a printer I'll be asked for user name and password. 'root' and 'woofwoof' doesn't work. Does anybody know the right words?

Subject description: Another coaster
 

Hi

I burned the iso, booted up using pfix=ram.

Used the network wizard to connect. All OK.

But no Seamonkey browser.

Clicking icons don't work.

Console works but only get input output errors.

Couldn't even shut computer down, had to press reset.

Will try again on my laptop.

Big big dissapointment so far.

Regards Tony

@rhadon: Go here and get gray's cupsd.conf. Unzip it and copy it to /etc/cups.

Restart the CUPS daemon with: /etc/init.d/cups restart

This should eliminate the requests for passwords.

I know we're still very much alpha but I ran into this:

-No menu icons
-Play doesn't play
-tried to install Firefox & VLC with PPM, no success
-Pnethood doesn't find any shares on my network anymore
-Xorg is fine when booting from CD but refuses to run from USB-stick. I Can't even get Xvesa to run
