Ok big_bass Mr. Green

First impressions of Slaxer-pup 4.12. Nice!

I run an Asus A7S8X.... SiS chipset, (AMD 2100+ Athlon, 512DDR ram, shared with graphics, onboard Sata.... which in the verbose bootup was detected, though I've no Sata drives... Beem would like it!

Sound and network worked OOTB, both onboard, no probs with xorg, onboard 64M graphics.

Was a little slower to boot than a stock Puppy, extra things in the list to detect I expect, but none the less it looks and feels very crisp. Wink

I like it! Now to try on a slower box... (don't think the 486 is quite up to it live though Wink )

Cheers... Mick

Cool Hi big_bass

Well I'm back on my oldish IBM Aptiva... SiS chipset AMD k6 400MHz, 256sdram, 8M shared graphics, onboard sound and USB... all the onboard stuff was detected at bootup plus my 2 realtek ethernet cards. All worked too. Wink

Had some trouble with wireless, that's the only way this box connects. Using my netgearWG111V2 (realtek.. rtl8187) was a failure, but I blame the card. I can only get it to run sweetly on a fast box in any puppy, and then it needs tweaking, depends how far from the router I am... Rolling Eyes . It was detected at bootup but I couldn't raise it, even with "if config wlan0 up" command. So I plugged in my el cheapo TP-link wireless B-G adapter and it was not detected at bootup. I racked my brain and remembered it is a Ralink using rt37usb module. I loaded that and here I am in about 60seconds. Razz

So for me slaxer-pup is great.. now to try the lappy Twisted Evil

One thing I forgot to mention... for some reason this OS seems to play an mp3 file better than 4.2 and marginally better than spup using BK's woof kernel. This box is too slow to test flash. I need this kernel for my spup!!!!

The truth Smile

Many thanks.
I am using it on an AMD Athlon X2 dual processor - with the newer ISO you have posted.
I don't seem to have two processors running - what is the command line scriipt - that show this? (I ran top view from the menu)

Seems OK so far . . . Smile
I tried the 'flush memory' script you included but that did not seem to close the audio player used to test audio (worked)

I have been through the thread 3 times now.
I am trying hard to understand what you have done and why? Cool
It seems quite technical - the good news for those wondering it looks and feels like Puppy 4.12 Cool
The real question I have is how is this different to woof built spup?
Is it in the kernel and compression used?
You have started from Slackware with the configuration file rather than with Puppy?

Back again.

Lappy is an IBM Thinkpad R31, Celery 1066(P3 architcture), 512sdram, 8M Intel graphics, again, everything on board works OOTB! Even the Trackpoint stick thingy. Nice.

Ok, wireless. I have a Netgear WG511V2 pcmcia card on this one... crappy Marvell chipset unsupported by Linux... however it works a treat in all Puppies with ndiswrapper. This is where I hit a snag. Crying or Very sad . All seemed to be going ok when I got a fatal error.... no ndiswrapper module! Please load another module! Ah well, two outa three aint bad! And if I tried another adapter I know it would work Wink But I couldn't be bothered ATM (Sorry!)

Hope some of this helps... and if not, at least puts a smile on your dial knowing that three vastly different sets of HW work just fine OOTB with Slaxer_Pup Mr. Green

Does BK know what your up to? I'm sure he'd be interested.

Cheers

Mick

@Lobster

I think that what big_bass has done is used the slackware 12.2 kernel only, obviously with patches to get it to run live. I think all the packages are stock 4.1.2.

Spup from woof uses either a stock 4.1.2 kernel or Barry's woof kernel... sorry forget the number ATM and I'm not near a running spup box. Then many of the packages come from the Slackware 12.2 repo or the Slacky.eu repo and are stripped by woof's scripts.

So essentially, Slaxer_Pup is Slackware 12.2 in Puppy clothing and spup is woof in Slackware clothing. Sheep don't come into it. Does this make any sense at all??? Laughing Laughing Laughing

Cheers

Mick

hi micko,

if i interpret barry's actual notes on his 2.6.29.1-kernel right, ndiswrapper uses the fuse-modul. so ndiswrapper maybe needs a recompile agains the slaxer-kernel/slaxer-fuse-module.

just a thought.

Slaxer is Slackware with a Puppy front end
Spup is Puppy built from Slackware files

and the sheep are . . . eh . . . Embarassed
will have to read the thread again . . .

PostPosted: Tue 21 Apr 2009, 13:23    Post subject: Slaxer_Pup 4.12 back in action!!  

big_bass,

I also tried Slaxer_Pup on my own Dell Mini 9 (Inspiron 910) with an Atom SMP-capable processor. It is actually a single core chip that uses multi-threading, as I understand it. This is a finicky machine that does not like any official Puppy release since the Dingo-retro kernel... but I think this is a puppy thing since it does fine with past and current releases of Ubuntu, Anti-X, Mint, Slitaz, etc.

And the Live CD would not load past this point:

Code:
Loading kernel drivers needed to access disk drives...squashfs: version 3.4 (2008/08/26) Phillip Lougher
squashfs: LZMA support for slax.org by jro

                                                                       done
Searching for Puppy files in computer disk drives...kjournald starting.  Commit interval 5 seconds

sr0: scsi3mmc drive: 24x/24x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
_


In an attempt to bypass this problem, I loaded Slaxer_Pup onto a 2GB USB memory stick via a Windows version 319 of unetbootin. Other folks have successfully run the later official Puppy distro (k2.6.25.16) on their Mini 9s using this method (and version of unetbootin) on a USB drive. This was as far as that attempt loaded:

Code:

I would be more than willing to make another attempt with this netbook, if someone could give me directions to follow. Oh, and I tried typing "Puppy Pupdirectory" that was mentioned in a previous poster (this thread), but obviously am not seasoned enough in Linux to pursue the subtle Pupdirectory hint further.

thanks Loster, micko,Roy

for testing and reporting

here is a cheat
to get the info fast
I'll add more



Code:
#!/bin/sh
#quick info grabbing for testing
dmesg >/root/dmesg.txt&&gzip /root/dmesg.txt
cat /proc/cpuinfo>/root/cpuinfo.txt&&gzip /root/cpuinfo.txt
cp /tmp/bootkernel.log /root&& gzip /root/bootkernel.log
 
#only for xorg uncomment
#cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log>/root&&gzip /root/Xorg.0.log
#cat /tmp/xerrs.txt>/root&&gzip /root/xerrs.txt




Lobster this is what you were looking for
duo detection
see image see the number 2 highlighted


I will make an easy summary of what was done to make Slaxer_Pup
different

I think that's right aragon.... I read that too on BK's blog.

Worth trying, but no joy for the second sata HDD.
Also I didn't see something about my second cpu.
I am pretty sure the kernel I need is 2.6.29.1

With upup-015 (2.6.29.rc7) I have my second sata HDD.
Fortunately Barry announced that he had chosen the 2.6.29.1

I tried wow's unamed also, this one having 2.6.28.5, but this one don't pass the boot.. I get an error message I don't understand and didn't get an answer. But I know wow is very busy.
