Hi Sage,

Here's one by Radky:

Had transferred the HDD with racy-110 from the P4 box to a k6 box :

Though the k6 has got only 1.045 GHz it runs faster than the P4 with 2.4 GHz .

racy kernel 3.0.7 runs fine !

One tiny issue : because i was lazy to adjust the boot parameters i did not boot with pfix=ram .
The video card had changed from
nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 440SE AGP 8x]
to
nVidia Corporation NV5M64 [RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro] (rev 15)

and xwin/xorgwizard[-automatic] did not move the nv_drv.so from
/usr/lib/x/drivers-alternate
to
/usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/drivers
for this .

I also have a black screen on the three consoles after Xorg started ,
and noticed fbcon is not compiled as module res. not put into the sfs .
Looking into /etc/modules/DOTconfig , i noticed that the framebufferdrivers [ nvidiafb , rivafb ] are configured as modules .

Is there a possibility to get these framebuffer drivers somewhere ?
It is not important , and rivafb might not work for me [ noticed a never ending loop loading rivafb configured with debugging [ useless 'cause not giving any values while spamming the screen ] ] .

Hi Barry

Racy seems to lack support for my Broadcom B43 wifi on my HP550 laptop which works in other Puppies.

/lib/firmware/b43 is missing - I copied it across from lupu528

the b43 driver is not being loaded - I had to put
modprobe b43
into /etc/rc.d/rc.local

with these 2 changes, my wifi works with sns through reboots and I am posting this from Racy.....

I saw similar problems with the lupu528-k3.0.4 puplet from wuxiandianzi so it may be a k3 problem

Cheers
peebee


b43.ko is supposed to load automatically. This also causes the firmware (at /lib/modules/all-firmware/b43.tar.gz) to install.

...unless b43.tar.gz has the wrong firmware? That is possible. If you run:

# modinfo b43

it will show what firmware is expected.

It may be that b43.tar.gz in Lupu got upgraded, and we will have to do the same.

@BarryK
The items you wanted tested have been done. Here are the results:

The newer Internet Connection Wizard and Hostname tools make changes appropriately. If anyone sets the hostname to "RACYRC-test1", for example (or any name following standards), all fields in the system reflect, correctly, the change.
Code:
# hostname
RACYRC-test1
# cat /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost RACYRC-test1
192.168.1.1 pc2
192.168.1.2 pc3
192.168.1.3 pc4
# cat /etc/hostname
RACYRC-test1#
# echo $HOSTNAME
RACYRC-test1
But, after desktop restart, the tools do not correctly reflect the system's hostname. (See attached). Might want to review the tools.

Hope this helps.


Thanks, fixed. I also fixed a bug, changed hostname in connectwizard was not being passed to hostname-set. Latest scripts attached.

Hi Barry

Thanks for your interest in my problem report.

I've run modinfo b43 as requested in both a pristine frugal install of racy-5.1.110 and also on spup-5.3 - the results are below.

I've also checked the versions of b43.tar.gz firmware in both racy and spup and they appear identical - lupu528 is also the same version - see screenies attached.

Cheers
peebee

Subject description: compaq desktop
 

Manual frugal install to compaq desktop pc.

Sun 6 Nov 2011 Operating System: Racy Puppy-5.1.110 Linux 3.0.7
0.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200] (rev 01)
oem: ATI RADEON 9200

X Server: Xorg Driver: radeon
X.Org version: 1.11.0
dimensions: 1280x1024 pixels (338x270 millimeters)
depth of root window: 24 planes


Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz
Core 0: 2800 1: 2800 MHz

Computer
Processor 2x Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz
Memory 1553MB (81MB used)

# glxgears
7682 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1536.393 FPS
7643 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1528.518 FPS
7657 frames in 5.0 seconds = 1531.336 FPS

Sound and wired network were good at first bootup.
I exited to the prompt and ran xorgwizard and chose the radeon driver.
The radeon driver is working well with this older ati card.

I added some stuff and changed the look a bit.
Racy Puppy-5.1.110 Linux 3.0.7 is the best one yet I think Smile

Yeah, that is extremely annoying. I used the <comboboxtext> tag in gtkdialog, as it supports the <default> tag, buy has that annoying pop-up-then-disappear "feature".

I have changed to the <combobox> tag, see attached, however it does not support the <default> tag, so I have to place the default item at the top of the drop-down list (and repeated again in the correct position) -- you will see what I mean if you try it!

Bogus thingy , that bothered me for one year , but now racy-110 gave me vesa instead of nv or nouveau at startup , so ran xorgwizard from the new firstrun-gui :


Thanks very much, I have put that fix into 'xorgwizard'.

PostPosted: Tue 08 Nov 2011, 20:17    Post subject: Iron Browser  

Since I haven't received a response on this... one way or the other, I'm sure it must have been overlooked back on PAGE-7 of this thread so I'll try just once more!
-------------------------------------------------------
I know you favor Seamonkey Browser and it's really a pretty good browser however, after trying them all, Iron (for clarity, speed and overall performance) and I for one would like to see a .pet available for Racy with Iron-14? I tried the Iron-14's for Slacko and Luci but they don't even fire up, at all...
-------------------------------------------------------
Can we get an Iron or Chromium Browser for Racy, or does someone know of one that will work from another distro?

"Thanks"

NEXT : JWMCONFIG !!

Thie jwmconfig has got several bugs , which I was observing for one year now ,
[ perhaps will open a thread in the Cutting Edge section , but my fixes may still contain bugs also ]

Shinobar attempted to fix the line numbering , but moving the panel buttons around , deleted two lines in .jwmrc-tray :

Code:

      <!-- Additional TaskList attribute: maxwidth -->


I have made some attempts to fix jwmconfig and one solution for the line numbering using wc -l could be :

this could be achieved by adding this code into /usr/local/jwmconfig2/panel-buttons :

I made an sfs file of vlc 1.1.12 and it works in this newest version

Not tested in anything other than this version of racy and it works on
my computers, hopefully yours too if you want it Smile

shinobar's sfs_load-1.2.9.pet can be used to load it on the fly or use
the bootmanager to load it.

The download link is:

Thanks for that. Right now I am uploading it to here (so it will be automatically found by Wary and Racy via the 'install' icon):

ecube wrote:
Partview (Free Space in Drives) shows a "Please wait ..." splash window during the processing of the All Drives option.

However, for Slacko 5.3 and Racy-51110 the splash window does not dissappear when the calculation is finished.

The problem is illustrated by the following script, which intended to start yaf-splash, and to kill its process after 3 seconds.
Code:
yaf-splash -font "8x16" -outline 0 -margin 4 -bg orange -placement center -text "Please wait, processing..." &
XPID=$!
echo "XPID=$XPID"
`sleep 3`
`kill $XPID`
PIDOF=`pidof yaf-splash`
echo "PIDOF=$PIDOF"

For Slacko 5.3 and Racy-51110 the output of the script is.

Code:
XPID=28255
./p11: line 8: 28255 Terminated              yaf-splash -font "8x16" -outline 0 -margin 4 -bg orange -placement center -text "Please wait, processing..."
PIDOF=28296


Thus, yaf-splash is still running with PID = 28296.

The yaf-splash option -font "8x16" seems to be the culprit.

I enclose updated versions of partview, where the -font option is removed from yaf-splash. The version Partview-2.2-Slacko.pet includes the stuff added by 01micko.


Thanks, partview 2.2 PET will be uploaded to the 'common' repo soon.
