Nevermore, I will probably update chrome for the next version - I tested the latest a few weeks ago and it seemed ok. Would you mind testing the new version with a new save file? I want to know if anyone else besides dawnsboy is having a problem booting the celeron kernel on a 701. The only risk of corruption is to your save file - it shouldn't mess with your other filesystems.

Hokal, you can restrict it from searching for save files on your disk by adding 'pmedia=usbflash' to the syslinux.cfg - athough this may not work correctly yet with the new kernel, if that doesn't work - try 'pdev1=sdb1' instead.

The new kernel uses the EXT4 driver for all ext filesystems, that's why you see ext4 error messages.

Firefox also crashes unionfs - it's not just Chrome, I haven't tested seamonkey2 on it - I wonder what it's doing that causes the crash.

Flatmo, I'll see if I can find a better pdf viewer. Have you tried overclocking for youtube? Some 701s crash, but some can handle it just fine.

Chrome uses the same flashplayer as seamonkey, firefox, or any other browser - but I suppose I could try updating to flash 10.

To get skype to run, go to the skype website http://www.skype.com/download/skype/linux/choose/ and download the static build.

Decompress it, then click on the skype executable and you should be good to go.

'pmedia=usbflash' never worked for me. Will not find .2sf file.

Flatmo, Jemimah

try Foxit, I think it is much better / faster than epdf.

Thanks Jemimah. One of the old puppeee versions (2.4?) worked just fine for both youtube videos and viewing PDFs. It used a lot of power though. I'm yet to compare the use of battery in Beta 4.0. Love to have all the the function keys working.

Foxit reader solved my problems. Thanks hokal.

Jemimah: I installed Opera 9.64 as instructed here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=28317 Is not as fast as Chrome but it does not have problems showing youtube videos, and the pages in general look much better on the 701 screen.

Just tested youtube on my 701 and it was fine as long as I wasn't in Xvesa. It was flawless overclocked.

Foxit is too big to include by default; I have a strong preference for free (libre, open source) software as well. Do you have an example pdf that renders poorly?

Just a thought... is Puppeee programmed for the daylight saving time changes that went into effect in 2007?

Dawnsboy, that's really bizarre. My 701 boots right up with no complaints. Can you try booting with 'loglevel=7' and see if it tells you more? Also can you see if the Atom kernel works?


I've been at work all day. Just caught up with the thread. I failed to report in initial post that system stops when attempting to boot kernel. Message displayed is as follows:

This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU:

Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for you system

How much RAM do you have dawnsboy?

dougeeebear, I have no idea - is it daylight savings time again already? I'll look into it.

---

I finally got my 701SD - expect bug fixes soon! Gonna have to patch the kernel to fix the rfkill problem - my scripts were fine - the rfkill button actually does an rfkill whenever you press it now, I just didn't realize that was what's happening... ah well, easily fixed.

Thanks jemimah

I was going to report that Fn-F2 was still crashing the 701SD,

Another issue is that eee-control gui has a problem, it won't show with a gtk-dialog error.

Cheers
