Test booting frugally on ntfs on internal hdd on Acer D250 10" Netbook.

Flash works on SeaMonkey but despite setting is 1024 x 768 it only show 1024 x 600 on the external screen that I use for my old eyes that don't like the 10" small text.

Same with viewnior it also only show 1024 x 600

all else works good. I tested both the uni and the not uni. Both loaded and booted and looked and behaved the same. I used the nosmp code in kernel line.

here is the pic to show how it looks with 1024 x 600 it leave a huge area unused.

Lupu 513 and 525 and 528 allow me to see the whole resolution 1024 x 768 while Wary Puppy and Slacko seems to have code that is different to Lucid Puppy so Wary and Slacko both only allowing 1024 x 600

fsck: fsck.ntfs: not found


Why are bug reports not being taken seriously ? I am repeating same things again and again. Will stop testing soon.


That is not a bug, Wary does not have such an application.

The 'fsck' utility looks for something named fsck.<fstype> which points to the actual program. However, there is nothing in Wary or any other Puppy that will check or repair an ntfs f.s.

Not that I know of anyway, that is compatible with the call mechanism via fsck. I could be wrong though.

Wary does however have 'ntfsfix', which is a very basic ntfs f.s. repair utility. It does not do a complete repair, only some simple things. It might make the f.s. bootable by Windows and then Windows will do a proper repair.

OK a websearch showed fsck.ntfs doesn't exist, too bad, maybe a link to ntfsfix can solve it ?
I was also refering to previous bugs, like flv not showing, csv, ntfs, keyboard language, menu.lst, hotmail, ext4, empty dirs, hosts.conf, /etc/groups, mouse scroll...

ntfsfix only flags the drive so windoze will run chkdsk next boot into windoze

ntfsck was under development by Anton Altaparmakov, but seems to have stalled?

http://old.nabble.com/Re%3A-Ntfsprogs---ntfsck-p22472855.html

I found ntfsprogs-2.0.0.tar.gz, which may contain ntfsck...but I haven't checked it

I don't know if you can include/update NTFS-3G with ntfsprogs for Wary

@linuxcbon

I hope that I can be of some assistance with most of the issues that you have raised. I did not address the file system issue as Aitch has responded to that. Please correct me if I have misunderstood any of your posts.

Quote:
flv not showing


Are you talking about video thumbnails in ROX?

I know that at one time ROX supported images for video file thumbnails in ROX Filer. I have used ROX as compiled for various linux systems over the years and do not recall ever using one that had that enabled by default.

As such that is not really a bug. It is more of a wish list item isn't it?

Quote:
csv in gnumeric


Gnumeric does open csv files. Also if you right click on a csv file in Rox Filer a context menu will pop up allowing the user to "set run action". Enter gnumeric prior to the "$@" and gnumeric will open csv files just by clicking on them. This has been a design feature of most puppies that I have ever used.

As such that is not really a bug. It is more of a wish list item (having file association preset) isn't it?

Also there is an application in the "Setup" menu called "default applications chooser".

Quote:
hotmail


You originally presented this as an XML PARSER error that appears when attempting to open messages downloaded from Hotmail with Seamonkey Mail.

First: So far I have not had any issues with hotmail in Seamonkey Mail.

But, I have seen that xml parser error before. This is not a Puppy Linux issue as it appears in Seamonkey 1.x and 2.x browsers when attempting to load various pages. It may be a problem in other linux browsers as well but I have not checked them. As I recall it is replicated on other linux systems.

Explanation: Many websites are optimized for Internet Explorer. Some of these pages are properly displayed with a current Firefox or Safari browser. However the "sites" are detecting the browsers useragent id.

When certain useragent id's are detected a browser upgrade window may appear prompting the user to upgrade the browser. This happens with Seamonkey 1.x when I attempt to log in at live.com.

NOTE:

I received that same xml parser error in Seamonkey as previously described in this post on certain sites. I found that if I used an useragentswitcher extension (installed by default on Seamonkey in Wary) and changed the useragent I could "spoof" the site causing it to properly render the page in Seamonkey.

Again, this does not appear to be a bug.

Quote:
grub not creating menu.1st on universal install


I have not tried the universal installer for Wary 5.14 as I downloaded the ISO from Lucid and manually setup a frugal install.

My experience with Puppy and the universal installer is that it will create a file called "newgrub.txt" and place it in /tmp. This can be used for the menu.1st. A dialogue box appears at the end of the process that informs the user of this fact.

Based on my experience I would say that again, this is not a bug. Rather more of a wish list item isn't it?

Quote:
mouse scroll


This is a design feature of the window manager JWM. Right clicking (or clicking the window icon on left side of title bar) on the title bar of any application will bring up a context menu. You will note that "shade" is an option. If the app window is shaded then "unshade" will be an option.

Again this is a design feature and not a bug.

Quote:
keyboard language


I know that changes in the layout of puppies that I have used so far cause X to restart. Perhaps it can be done the way you suggest.

But again this is not a bug is it?

Perhaps developers are not responding to your posts because they are busy tracking down and fixing bugs.

There is a thread in the forum about how to give effective but reports. Found here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=36872

Hope that helps.

Yes, most of what linuxcbon has posted are opinions about how things should be. They are not bugs. I have to prioritize everything, so such reports get put low on my agenda.

However...

Mime handling for csv is something that can be added to ROX-Filer. That is a feature request. Ok, I have done it -- the correct mime handling is now in Woof, so the file will display with appropriate icon and the 'defaultspreadsheet' will execute.

Thanks for that info about merged ntfs-3g and ntfsprogs:

http://www.tuxera.com/community/ntfs-3g-download/

No, ntfsprogs does not have ntfsck, only ntfsfix.

VIDEO REPORT: Wary Puppy, version 5.1.4

Chip description:
oem: NVidia
product: NV10 Reference Board Chip Rev A1

Driver used by Xorg:
nv

Video mode used by Xorg:
Resolution: Depth 24 Depth: "Display"

...the above also recorded in /tmp/report-video

The video upgrade wizard recommends the 71.86.14 driver but I need the 96.xx.xx.

Everything else works great! Thanks!
