PostPosted: Fri 18 Sep 2009, 07:48    Post_subject: Puppy 4.3 Final -- bug reports and suggestions  

Issues I noticed:

4.3 standard:
petget doesn't run from the desktop icon.
When started from
/usr/local/petget/pkg_chooser.sh
only the Package Manager opens.

4.3 small:
Internet connection wizard/Internet by network doesn't recognize any network card. Standard version does!

Both:
icons.png are not displayed in Rox. None of them. (This is solved; thanks magerlab)
They are when using PCman.

Otherwise a very fine job. Thank you Barry and all involved.

I was getting some strange results on second booting
- been driving me up the wall (already half way up there)
(basically connection settings were not saving and when trying to reconnect my standard ethernet was not recognised - which would mean having to boot with Puppy pfix=ram every time)

So I changed to the smaller ISO
and then the previous kernel
- my last result on the second booting was a kernel panic
I think this may be due to not clearing the pup-350.sfs
of the previous runs . .
.Barry does mention this in the notes . . .

So if anyone is getting similar results
make sure you clear that pup-350.sfs or similar

I have gone back to the beta 3 for now
May test again later

gonna have a lie down
Thanks Barry - thanks everyone

Wot no 4.3 Wooflets yet? Wink

Sub_title: Doesn't work at any resolution
 

Frugal on a Dell PIV from around 2003, with the usual poor Intel video card: I can't get Xorg to work at all, and VESA only gives an impossibly low resolution. Other Puppies have givend no problem. I tried the boot command "vga=normal" with no results. Is this a function of the new kernel?

no dave its the modules, the intel modules are broken you might as well wait for the next release when they are updated, actually they have to be removed to fix it for others, they cause a memory leak.
this is a quote from Barry's blog Smile
"EDIT:
I had tested the ALSA Wizard very soon before releasing the final, so I thought hard, what changed before then and the final? ...ah, one thing, I put rerwin's 537 modem modules in. That's it, take them out and depmod-FULL works.

You will find them at /lib/modules/2.6.30.5/intelmodem

This bug does not affect pup-430-small.iso, only the full size pup-430.iso.
I'm going to rebuild and re-upload it, without the 537 modules. "

Sub_title: Probably due to my module renaming trickery
 

Sorry to hear that my trickery in renaming the various versions of the Intel537 driver has disrupted the full depmod. I will work toward another way to provide all of the versions. It will probably be more convoluted that the simple renaming, but I trust there is a way. I'll shoot for 4.3.1.

In the new locale selection screen during the bootup when no previous session is saved, there is something strange:

an-ES Spain

But that's not correct, the code for Spain should be es-ES... but when I try to select es-ES it appears as "Mexican, Spain". Actually the language is listed as Mexican for every Spanish-language country, which is kind of funny, but wrong Smile
It should be "Spanish, Spain", "Spanish, Mexico", "Spanish, Chile", and so on.

PostPosted: Fri 18 Sep 2009, 10:50    Post_subject: Locks up completely upon boot - randomly  

I'm running pup-430-small on a Dell Mini 10
I think my lockups have to do with the Intel GMA500 graphics chip.
I'm not sure. My monitor is never detected in xorg auto detect.
I enclosed the last /var/log/messages file from the last good boot.
I since rmmod the lib80211_crypt_tkip module, since it seemed to display a lot of errors.

I also included a picture I took with a camera of the onscreen messages, since I could find no way to copy them. They start and end like this:
[<c01197e0>] ? do_page_fault 0x0/0x240
[<c0556250>] ? unknown_boot_option 8x8/8x1e8

when you get the intel drivers working can you let me know, I already made a Firefox version of 4.3 without all the intel drivers and would like to repackage them and update the release.
thanks

PostPosted: Fri 18 Sep 2009, 11:39    Post_subject: network problems with 4.30 small
Sub_title: no connection on WPA/TKIP network
 

This does not appear to be a problem with getting the right module. When I use the network wizard I find it correctly identifies the wireless interface on my Dell 610 as the Intel 2915ABG card (ipw2200 module). It successfully scans and finds the encrypted network, with either the network wizard or Pwireless. Something weird is going on after that. It will accept the idea that the encryption is either WEP or WPA2, but refuses to believe I could be using WPA/TKIP.

This worked on 4.25, with occasional problems of interfaces moving between eth0 to eth1 depending on how they loaded. The wired network, which I'm using to post this, uses the tg3 module for a BCM5751.

Awesome, this is the first time I have had my laptop online using Linux since 2003 (Mandrake). After probing, Puppy 4.3 configured my conexant modem as SHSF0, and I accessed the internet by dialup. Then I left the computer unattended but still connected for about 5 hours, and the connection was still good when I returned. Nice work, rerwin.

When I played a downloaded FLV file with gxine, the audio was fine but there was no video, rather a blue square in the gxine window. I mention this because Puppy should work out of the box, and apparently something is not quite right. When I finally install Puppy 4.3 to hard drive, I will be hunting for the latest version of VLC. In fact, VLC would be a good candidate to be standard issue on Puppy, as a backup to media players.

Sub_title: Grub configuration and Universal installer disagree
 

This falls in the category of minor irritations which stump newcomers. Like many here, I've gotten used to editing menu.lst myself. Some things I do perplex people who watch me. One of them used his cellphone camera to capture screen shots so he could reproduce my actions.

The universal installer puts vmlinuz and initrd.gz at the root of the directory tree on the installation partition by default. Grub configuration assumes they are in /boot. There is typically no entry for initrd.gz in menu.lst.

Explaining the difference between grub partition numbering and arguments on the command line is a stumbling block for many newcomers which we can't easily remove. We don't want to introduce any more inconsistency in the wizards.
