I have noticed problems on my old gear, particularly if the cd drive is worn, with loading of the 'zdrv'. I did a quick respin of 051 without the zdrv and the issues were solved, notably many drivers weren't loading including sound and network. Note this is not available for download but 052, due maybe next week will have this implemented. I'm hoping this will solve Tui's issue and perhaps net dropouts reported by aarf.

I also hope to have Barry's video upgrade script working so I need to get the right mesa package going. I'll also compile nvidia-96.43.19. Is anyone up to compiling the ATI fglrx driver?

I also hope to have my repo working in PPM using Iguleder's example. So any packages compiled in spup thet you make or know that work please send a link and it will go to the repo. If anyone wants to compile games all the SDL libs are in the repo listed on the first page of this thread.

I will also make sure that anyone can duplicate the exact iso with some woof instructions. I'm trying to keep things as simple as possible so don't expect any dramatic changes in spup. Woof should be able to search and download from the Brainwaves site (thanks Saturn Wink ) to make it easy.

Any suggestions, fire at will!

Cheers

Confused ???

That is weird... which driver Billtoo? (260 or 173?)

I did have problem installing 173 myself but got it going in the end with 'nvidia' in xorg.conf. I had zero problems with 260.

That's with the 260 driver.
Here are the results for the same computer on Wary 102:

Framerates are the same but it correctly reports the nvidia driver, you compiled the one in wary too didn't you?

Anyway, I have accelerated graphics in both wary 102 and spup 51 so that's okay Smile

Yes I did.

I wonder if report-video is bugging? I doubt it would though. But maybe it read one of the backup xorg.conf file, possible I guess. Just check your /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Cheers
EDIT
Well whaddyaknow? Laughing
Code:
Section "Device"
   Driver      "vesa" #card0driver
    Identifier     "Card0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "Unknown Vendor"
    BoardName      "Unknown Board"
EndSection


That's my xorg.conf.. so xorg is using the nvidia driver just that report-video is grepping for "#card0driver", that's why "vesa" is returned, it's really a bug in nvidia-xconfig. Well I might change the pinstall.sh and ditch nvidia-xconfig altogether.
Thanks Billtoo

Cheers

Hi,

I now have a full HD install. I have experimented and made some progress and I remain very well pleased.

A minor suggestion would be to consider accentuating the difference between an empty trash can and a full one (my eyesight is poor so I have added a bold red "F" to the full icon).

My regards

Sub_title: ati card
 

I booted the live cd pfix=ram and chose vesa at xorgwizard.
Wired network and sound were working.

After creating a save file and several reboots to load the devx and
kernel source sfs I exited to the prompt and ran the newest ati driver:
ati-driver-installer-10-10-x86.x86_64.run, when it finished I entered
"aticonfig --initial" and then xwin to get to the desktop.

Hot Dog! I have accelerated graphics on this pc, Nexuiz runs great.

Spup can't use wlan0 but the only linux that I've tried to be able to so far
is fatdog 510.

Report video gives incorrect information but who cares?, I have hardware
acceleration Smile

Here's something crazy I'm working on atm (army tomorrow and I'm full of adrenaline): Pslackthing Laughing

Took around 2 hours to write this. This insane tool is pretty much like Pdebthing (downloads packages with their dependencies) but for Slackware. It's written from scratch in Perl and Bash and its fully compatible with PPM in the way it handles repos and package lists.

All scripts are independent and have help messages and helpful comments ... very simple and modular.

This thing checks what distro you're running and if it's a spup, it will automatically use its repos and Slackware version. Otherwise, you'll need to supply DISTRO_SPECS and DISTRO_COMPAT_REPOS-slackware-$DISTRO_COMPAT_VERSION, put them in the Pslackthing directory. Take a look at "distroinfo" to see what I'm talking about Cool

You'll also need packages.txt, a list of packages you want it to download.

And if you wonder how to use it: make a package list in packages.txt, run 0setup to convert the Slackware repos to PPM format, then run 1download to download all the packages plus their dependencies.

Don't forget, dependencies resolution is not perfect because Slackware doesn't have meta-packages and the dependencies are third-party. So ... things like the whole X won't be downloaded. In other words, a package can depend on libX11 but NOT on the whole X because there's no package for the entire X.

Oh, one last note - there's no way to blacklist packages to prevent Pslackthing from downloading them and/or their dependencies ... but that's something that can be added in around 5 lines of code. I'm too lazy to do this and I don't find this useful at all.

And by the way, 01micko - you said that Slackware-style package building and management can be a revolution in spup. I think I could expand Pslackthing and make it integrate with Woof (for PPM and stuff) in order to make it able to produce a Puppy built from a true Slackware base (i.e no /usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons and stuff and no Puppy-specific packages except crucial packages like Bash 3.x) ... that's a very good direction for the future of Puppy (6.x) imho Idea

EDIT: bug-fix version at your service.

Thanks. Being in it a couple of days already. Auto-update did the job correctly, my SeaMonkey being installed outside the save file. Cool

Igu.

Although your contributions seem great it is my idea that you should try to calm yourself in front of the big day and nasty period.

Do not think computing settles the brain. Still time for a walk and fresh air, a swim ?

Wish you peace of mind.and that sooon all is over.

Sub_title: bootflash
 

Bootflash is broken, I booted the .51 cd and used bootflash to install to a sdhc card, it booted okay but none of the network modules were loaded.
I just finished using luci 245 to do the same thing and the sdhc install of .51 is working fine on my acer desktop.

Also, the install that I made on my hp with the ati card worked great for a while but sound disappeared at some point and running the Setup alsa Sound wizard couldn't bring it back, I think it's because the hp is only a few months old, anyhow it's back to the trusty acer desktop for me.
Fatdog 510 runs nice on the hp.

Hi Billtoo,

It is kind of a bug with bootflash and having a zdrv. The zdrv has all the kernel modules, and mustn't be getting copied.. you can copy it manually and it should fix that installation. Next version won't have a zdrv, all modules will be in the main sfs

Cheers

Sub_title: Screensaver
 

would it be possible to get a pet made of xscreensaver 5.12 with all the screeensavers (approx 200) to run in spup 051 including any dependencies?

I found an old copy 5.07 but it includes only part of the screensavers

regards

Hi all

Watched 2 hours of streamed flash video using seamonkey without a problem. (and newcastle won Razz) so no problems there.

The devx has handled most things I have thrown at it, a couple of errors that some libraries were not up to date, but overall very impressive.(I know that is dependent on woof)

anything else need testing/breaking?

Iguleder

Pslackthing is a marvellous piece of work!

Now, I notice it didn't cross check dependencies already installed.. a simple check of $HOME/.packages/woof-installed-packages would fix that, that way only the deps needed will be downloaded. I will then add my loop for unpacking and repacking as a pet or an sfs, also doing the splitting to DOC, DEV, NLS and this will be a complete tool for grabbing slack packages Smile

I know you will read this beacuse as soon as you wake you will want to know what's going on before you're shipped off to wherever for your army training. Wink

Cheers and all the best!
