are you saying that the ones you provided in ReallSlickScreensavers work the cpu and gpu more than any other programs or Xsceensaver progam in general

Yes, definitely, although I guess I should have said the gpu, rather than including the cpu also. I have observed it in watching temperatures. They are doing a lot of heavy math to get the patterns. I am not saying they are dangerous or anything.

Frugal install Luci 254 on USB flash drive formated ext4.

I do not think this is a Luci issue, but I thought I would post just in case.
I just booted up from being shut off overnight.
Got to starting X and got all kinds of error messages about Rox pinboard and openbox. Too many to remember. Basically a blank desktop, no icons, or normal desktop.
Had Grub4dos boot menu and it had made a
1. normal boot entry
2. entry to boot pfix=ram
Used the pfix=ram entry and got to normal desktop for a fresh initial start. That entry gave me a very good emergency boot option.
Looked in /root/.config/roxfiler of the save file on the flash drive.
Compared it to what was in the roxfiler directory I was now using. A lot of stuff missing from the Roxfiler directory in the save file. copied over missing files and got Rox working ok.
Tried the same thing for Openbox, but not sure what needed to be corrected.
Did a new install on flash drive to get back to working Luci 254.
Not sure what caused this except,
"You must be smarter than the equipment you are operating".

PostPosted: Sun 13 Mar 2011, 22:51    Post subject: modem & "protect" updates ready for testing on Luci  

playdayz,
I have uploaded a corrected version of the modem and protected-modprobe package, after improving compatiblity with Luci 254 at: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=431074#431074
Please have some users try it out. To use it, though, be sure to reboot immediately after installing it.

The major changes over the past month or so are: (1) the upgrading of the usb_modeswitching to the latest (1.1.7) version and its replacement of my alternative wrapper script by the official script, with only a small puppy front end; and (2) the conversion of the modprobe.conf to several config files in /etc/modprobe.d, particularly puppy.conf. The config-file conversion impacted the alsa support, so please verify that your sound still works (mine does).

Although the package installs all of the modem firmware packages, they are now equipped to stay quiet if their driver modules are not installed. Previously, attempted loading of non-existent modules would result in a module-loading timeout. Please report any timeouts that would appear in /tmp/pup_event_backend_modprobe_protect.log, because they should not occur.

Thank you, all who can test this.
Richard

Nice vid Ivansampa Smile

cfischer69 reported a bug with a save to partition frugal install (pupmode = 6, also affecting pupmode = 7 ) that an sfs wouldn't download from quickpet. I can confirm the bug and the attachment should fix it.

The attachment also has code detecting shinobar's sfs_load. If you have sfs_load installed then it will automagically be loaded in a frugal install (pupmodes 6,7,12,13). It does not depend on sfs_load because sfs_load is still classed as experimental.
Cheers!

I was wondering if it can be put in the repo after making it work in Luci Razz

Did you use Openshot?

I have been trying to use the latest Openshot
To get some of the title effects, you need
the cutting edge beta of Blender . . .
http://www.blender.org/download/get-256-beta/
which we do not yet have for Lucid?

Rerwin's 3G modem fix seems necessary.

There is one issue, see http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=504230#504230

ADD: Just so you know, there are actually two systems operating to choose the video driver. First, to boot straight to the desktop is xorg's own system to select the driver. Alternatively, when using xorgwizard, that is Puppy's system.

Can you choose intel_drv in xorgwizard?


interesting, as I've had stability issues with Spup 56, with the same chip as rerwin. Spup uses a later version of Xorg than Lucid 5.2 does, which is what I've written it off to.

Playdayz - fascinating that there are two systems of setting up Xorg off the bat - should one be preferred over the other? or is the idea that if the "boot to desktop" doesn't work, one should then fall back to the puppy setup?

Thread hijack alert...sorry.

rerwin - I seem to have the same chip, the 82845G, in my 2002 era HP Pavilion desktop. While I haven't had a problem with Lucid, I have had difficulties with Spup which seems to use a later version of Xorg than Lucid 5.2.

Were you able to boot to desktop with the new version of Luci? Did you accept the initial setup? or have you had better luck running the Xorgwizard?
I've always been up in the air about which driver to choose there - intel, i740, or i810. The i810 driver seems to be suggested on some forums, but also seems to be getting phased out in many distros. Really, I'm just being lazy, and hoping you'll tell me what has worked for you...

To capture screenshot using gtk-recordmydesktop, Pitivi video editor: convert ogv avi / mpg and cut video. Imagination: video slideshow.
OpenShot is very easy to use and edit effects with blender but is not ideal for my use at this time.
Thanks! Very Happy

Hey Lobster, Sometimes we get lucky! It requires high performance graphics of course. It opened for me but I don't have a clue what to do with it Wink

cowboy, were *you* able to boot straight to the desktop without doing anything special? This is what is puzzling me, since I thought we had accommodated the 845 graphics chipset. Thanks.

Concerning the two systems, I think of it as a form of redundancy. First, we try to boot to the desktop, and succeed btw in almost all cases, using xorg's own resources. But, if it fails, *or* if someone wants to make customizations to the video, the traditional xorgwizard is available. It gives us two chances to get it right, imho.

Could you send or post the output of the command lspci? Open a terminal an enter
Code:
lspci >> test.txt
.

And then you can copy and paste from the file /root/test.txt into the message box. Thanks.

Hey Lobster, Sometimes we get lucky!


Lucky is good. Cool
To use in Openshot
Go to Title
and select 3D title - these rendering effects use Blender . . .
. . . am now rendering - hope the luck holds Smile

Many thanks Smile

Using Puppy Linux?
You Lucky Dawgs!
