Tasmod,

Did as you requested. Uninstalled and installed from your post. Same results. Same error messages. I'll be away from my computer until Wed. so I won't be able to try anything more until then.

Thanks,

Jeff

PostPosted: Mon 23 Aug 2010, 15:49    Post_subject: Cmake problems  

I'm trying to compile a program that uses cmake. Having installed 5.1 with the 5.1 devx, cmake gives an error Could not find CMAKE_ROOT. I tried installing the latest cmake, which then ran without error, but compile then gave an even more cryptic error Unknown pseudo-op: `.cfi_sections'. Looks like cmake is not the only thing that needs updating, but I can't see what.

Regards - Philip

Lupu's CUPS has two protocols for printing to a Windows shared printer. The first, "Windows Printer via SAMBA" is the Puppy standard and uses the smb: backend.

However, Barry has introduced an alternate method called "Windows Printer using smbclient" which uses the smbc: backend. This one is broken and requires the following patch:
Code:
ln -s /opt/samba/bin/smbclient /usr/bin/smbclient


Both methods work correctly after the patch.

rcrsn51 -- any chance that could impact PDF printing, or are you not seeing any problem with PDF printing?

The HP Laserjet P1006 printer w/the fooxxx drivers is directly connected to my Lucid 5.1_003 laptop.

No. But I just tried to print a PDF document in Lupu 510 and got a blank page.

I then dropped in CUPS 1.3.11 and got a printed page, but the fonts were all wrong.

So I tried it in my everyday Quirky and it printed correctly.

Arghh!

Well, guess I will have to do the same for now.

Are you aware of anyone chasing this bug?

I pointed PPM to the Ubuntu Lucid repository and installed the latest cmake and cmake-data. Cmake now works and I can compile and run my program. Looks like the cmake on the devx 5.1 needs updating.

PDF printing. Epdfview does not print ok, only blank page.
Jrb`s sfs linker and jrb`s adobe acrobat reader 8.0 sfs prints ok and is associatible to thunderbird.

From luci repo foxit reader didnt associate ok to my /mnt/home/thunderbird finnish version. It didnt open pdf at all. It opens and prints pdf if I save it first but that is too complicated for normal use with thunderbird.

CUPS 1.3.11 works fine for printing PDF in WARY 060.

Why would PDF printing have been broken when they moved to a newer version?

Are they not testing CUPS properly prior to releases?

As usual, this is not a CUPS problem - it's related to fonts.

If I create a PDF document using Lupu's own fonts, load it into epdfviewer and print it, it works fine.

If I load an external PDF document, it won't print. In the example I tried, the CUPS log showed an error message about invalid font - Helvetica. I think that the message is coming from Ghostscript. Lupu does not appear to have a Helvetica font anywhere.

The same document does print in Quirky, so it must be handling the missing font differently.

[Edit] I wonder if this is because Lupu's Ghostscript was compiled against a collection of fonts that does not match what Lupu actually contains.

I concur about PDF printing. Adding more fonts corrected the epdfview printing. I leased some fonts from windows and that was it.

This package helps if you think it is not too big, about 3 Mb and uncompressed almost 6 Mb.

I'm running Lucid Puppy 5.1 on two machines - the main family PC 'Merlin' which is a Pentium D 3.4GHz with 2GB RAM and Radeon X1650 Pro graphics and on my retro-gaming machine 'Zhaan' which has an AMD K6-2 500 CPU and has just been upgraded to 512MB of RAM.

Puppy works very nicely on Merlin, although I have found that it doesn't seem to remember the settings for the wireless network setup (Netgear WN111v2) between boots. I have to go into the wizard, reload the profile and then set up the StaticIP config again (although it does remember the DNS settings).

I can't really comment on Puppy's performance on Zhaan at the moment as that machine has an up-time measured in minutes due to a hardware fault. I suspect that the PSU is faulty and hopefully when the replacement arrives in the next day or two it'll fix it and I'll be able to comment further.

I'll upload HardInfo reports for both machines to my site when I get time (and in the case of Zhaan when it'll stay running long enough to generate one).

Regarding problems with NetSurf, I strongly suspect that the cause is that it doesn't currently have JavaScript support so anything that requires it won't actually work - this is probably the reason why the drop-down menus in CUPS don't do anything.

See http://www.netsurf-browser.org/documentation/info#JavaScript for the NetSurf team's reasoning why JavaScript isn't supported yet.

HTH.

I couldn't get this to work for me. Do you have a sample PDF document I could try?

[Edit] As a test, I installed the Ghostscript PET from the Quirky repo and CUPS 1.3.11. Now I can print an assortment of PDFs correctly. Read here.

Jades,

I had similar problems with network parameters not being remembered at reboot on two of the three machines I've installed Luci 51 on. Installing and running Pwireless2 fixed both. Thanks go to jemimah!

BTW, right on the intro page it tells you to install a full-featured browser. Netsurf just isn't enough for the big jobs.

Sub_title: e2fsck at startup and partition not unmounted properly
 

I seem to have a problem and I do NOT think it has to do with a failing hard drive.
I have Lucid Puppy 5.1 installed frugally on a 40 gig partition that was formatted to ext2.
When I boot it from the grub menu, a e2fsck is done on that partition and also on the lupusave.2fs file.
This really slows down the boot process.
Also, if I boot from the same version using a CD with a pfix=ram option, set locale, time zone, and the do a e2fsck of that partition without the -y option, I am told the partition was not unmounted cleanly.
Then when I boot from the hard drive, to Lucid 5.1, no e2fsck is done.
But on a reboot, the check takes place again.
Each time I check the partition with a CD boot, it says it was not unmounted cleanly.
I do not have this problem with Lighthouse pup or Puppy 431 SCSI.

So what the heck is going on?
This is getting downright frustrating.

I should mention in this that if you have built Lupu 5.1 with a built in file system check, that I wonder if it is trying to check a Mounted Partition.
I say this because I boot using Easy BCD on a SATA drive and it looks for grub and menu.lst on a second drive PATA type with Puppy versions on a 40 gig ext2 partition.
Since the PC is accessing the grub boot menu from that partition is it mounted even before the startup fsck is run?
