Got the 'disappearing CD icon' problem - right click overlaps underlying 'delete'. Problem discussed somewhere but don't remember solution. Suggested moving the position of the underlying pop-up?

I have the same problem. Such a small design oversight, but such a nuisance!

I'm still using an early Wary .... can't spare even 100MB download on my 3G plan at the moment Sad .... and I experience no other problems with mouse clicks in any other use. So the problem seems unique here.

It's a bit different with Wary 103. Depending on the detente of one's finger, either the options box pops up or a new panel appears at top of screen listing the contents of sr0.
Clearly BK is aware of the issue, maybe not quite there yet? Mouse characteristics are adjustable, of course, but playing with those consumes much time with uncertain results.

Running Live media RACY.

After running couple days I've been watching a desktop "save" button that I had never tried before. As there never was any apparent need. But for the first time, I decided to try it. I had expected to save to Live media my current session without have to reboot.
  1. Click "save"
  2. system dropped to a terminal session (F1) indicating automatic login in prompt
  3. Nothing???
  4. No messages, no physical indication of anything...nothing
.So I typed "xwin"; I'm back to desktop to report to you. I have attached a system report if you want some idea of what the system is seeing.

Question
Should save button have saved my session to its Live media?

Hope this helps

Barry.. can I request a .pet for Seamonkey 2.4.1 please? The reason is 'drastically improved memory usage' quoted from Mozilla site.
Clearly Racy requires a particular compile.

Subject description: petget under PUPMODE=13 freezes with some hardware and with some kernel
 

Petget freezes at installing any pets under PUPMODE=13(flash).
It freezes at line 230 in installpkg.sh:
Code:
busybox mount -t aufs -o remount,udba=reval unionfs / #remount with faster evaluation mode.

Ctrl + Alt + Backspace is only way to recover.
It seems hardware specific.
My 2 PCs freeze but another 1 PC is no problem.

No problem on Wary-51.103, but occurs on Racy 5.1.101.
Also occurs on Slacko alpha to RC, and on Dpup Exprim 5.X.8.
So, i suspect it depends on the hardware and the kernel.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=555328#555328

Besides, sfs_load does load and unload sfs on the fly with no problem.
Seems the option 'remount,udba=reval' may be the issue.

Temporally, i insert a code, 'PUPMODE=0', at line 89 in the /usr/local/petget/installpkg.sh to escape direct install to the pupsave.
Code:
#boot from flash: bypass tmpfs top layer, install direct to pup_save file...
DIRECTSAVEPATH=""
PUPMODE=0   # shinobar: never direct to pupsave
if [ $PUPMODE -eq 3 -o $PUPMODE -eq 7 -o $PUPMODE -eq 13 ];then


EDIT: Racy Puppy 5.1.110, kernel 3.0.7 with unionfs, has no problem.

Oh dear - cannot get tapping to work on FULL Wary 5.1.4.1 nor live Racy. Tapping works on live 5.1.103 but it won't install - gives the sda1 unmount(it is) and warysfs-w.h.y. message. Following the displayed advice doesn't work either. There is no 'saved' file but the PUI insists that there is one. This is an entirely new 'feature'.

No idea where these gtk images are located normally.
And hope it was not intended to leave them off.


GTK 2.24.x has less builtin icons. I have created gtk-harddisk.xpm in /usr/share/icons in Woof.

Alternatively, run "make install-dev" from the attr source

Though attr/xattr.h IS in /usr/include. Confused

But then I try to compile attr-2.4.43 just the same with

Now, I'm far from expert compiler but is it me or something is missing from devx?
Does Racy uses the standard T2 toolchain?


I have a very vague memory about this, that xattr.h had to be copied to somewhere. Sorry, can't be more specific than that. I also recall someone else, maybe kirk or technosaurus, commenting on that.

Another [ unproblematic ] occurrence is , that if

comma instead of a dot for floats !

There are quite some scripts , that use "cut -f X -d '.'" to format the output of the 'dc' command to be useable for the 'expr' command ; example from /tmp/xerrs.log :

expr: non-numeric argument
/usr/sbin/background_reshape: line 56: [: -ge: unary operator expected

could need a LANG=C to prevent this .

"grep 'dc ' /usr/sbin/* | grep 'cut'" in /usr/*/*[/*] and /etc/*/*
did not throw much and the scripts that show additionally have already LANG=C set . So background_reshape may be [ one of ] the last leftovers , that did not get updated for that until now .


Thanks, I have inserted "export LANG=C" into /usr/sbin/background_reshape.

I have only tested the 'save' icon in Wary (yesterday) and found just one problem, the progess message at top of screen did not go away. But, save did work. I fixed the message problem.

I will build another Racy in a day or two and test 'save' again.

shinobar,
Thanks for that report. Yesterday I was testing Wary with 2.6.32.45 kernel, booting off USB Flash stick, and when I installed a PET, it seemed to have installed ok, but when I examined the files, some of the files in the PET were not installed.

Or rather, they probably were, direct to a layer, but that 'remount,udba=reval' is not working anymore, it would seem.

Ok, I have bypassed that code in /usr/local/petget/installpkg.sh, for now anyway.

Hmmm, I might try unionfs again. They have just announced a new version. Unionfs used to do that re-evaluation of the layers very well -- I think an old version of installpkg.sh or petget has code for unionfs direct-write to a layer.

EDIT POST
I have reverted the bypass. I realised that installing in Wary is working -- the reason that I couldn't see some installed files was because there were already the same files "on top". That is, I had files at the pup-rw layer, whereas the PET wrote direct to the underlying pup_ro1 layer. That is a different problem, that will need to be looked into sometime.

So, I will leave the script as it was, as release of Wary is imminent. However, Slacko testers will need to confirm the problem for them, and might want the modified script. I will test with Racy soon.

Just printed a puppy_drake thread page from the
