Racy boots to the setup wizard, keboard, country and timezone. Once all set then it displays the desktop at 1280x1024 which is the maximum this Dell monitor can manage.

In all Lupu's it boots to desktop but only at 800x600. I have to run xorgwizard to select 1280x1024 in Xorg.

In Fatdog it's able to boot 1280x1024.

I have attached a file which contains three log files.

Saluk-006-Xorg.0.log.old which is the log from the first boot when the desktop did not start.

Saluki-006-Xorg.0.log which is the Xorg log file after I have ctrl-alt-backpaced then ran xorgwizard and selected vesa at 1280x1024.

The third is the Racy-Xorg.0.log file.

Hope this give you the information you require to solve the problem.

For these types of problems it is helpful to mention whether or not it works in Racy since the only difference graphics-wise between racy and saluki is the kernel.

Remember that report-video always says vesa unless you create a real xorg.conf, so don't rely on that output.

Examining the /var/log/Xorg.0.log may tell you what the problem is.

USB install from 001 iso originally. Run on a Dell latitude D610 and a Fujitsu S6210, both Pentium M class laptops with Intel graphics. Haven't run it yet on the T60 with ATI vid.

Wireless fine under frisbee once /usr/share/gvfs/remote-volume-monitor created. Xarchiver 0.5.2 installed, also searchmonkey 0.8.1 and Opera 11.52. Remastered, THEN updated to 003 sucessfully keeping all settings and programs. Wow!

Sound fine, frisbee wireless fine (even with ASCII WEP key), Alps touchpad fine, Font rendering particularly in Opera just not as crisp as my old Boxpup412, even with anti-aliasing on and with or without hintslight option. Same Dejavu or Vera fonts. Who knows.

Video report from the Dell follows. Glxgears numbers reflect a known issue in the newer i915 series drivers. Even with Option "SwapbuffersWait" "false" in Xorg.conf, vblank_mode defaults to on. Still chasing that tail and getting the Save launcher off the desktop permanently. Until xfce goes singleclick (promised in 4.10) I use the menu and 4 or 5 launchers in the panel with none at all on the desktop. Panel autohides well. Transparency with opaque icons now works also with Xfce compositor on.

The drive access via the panel really has as much utility as the drives-on-desktop scheme. Could use a 'punchier' icon though. One that screams DRIVES.

Adding the following lines in /root/gtkrc.mine makes the background behind the desktop icon text transparent:

style "xfdesktop-icon-view" {
XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 0
}
widget_class "*XfdesktopIconView*" style "xfdesktop-icon-view"


VIDEO REPORT: Saluki, version 006

Chip description:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 03)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 03)

Driver used by Xorg:
intel

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

# vblank_mode=0 glxgears
ATTENTION: default value of option vblank_mode overridden by environment.
2677 frames in 5.0 seconds = 535.297 FPS
2686 frames in 5.0 seconds = 537.102 FPS
2677 frames in 5.0 seconds = 535.275 FPS
2676 frames in 5.0 seconds = 535.184 FPS
2668 frames in 5.0 seconds = 533.510 FPS

# glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
110 frames in 5.0 seconds = 21.883 FPS
84 frames in 5.0 seconds = 16.744 FPS
105 frames in 5.0 seconds = 20.930 FPS
91 frames in 5.0 seconds = 18.140 FPS
144 frames in 5.0 seconds = 28.704 FPS


I agree strongly with keeping the core minimal. Just enough to use the repository or get and install tar.gzs or sfs. Some form of Xarchiver or equivalent and a minimal browser either onboard or in the repo suggested.

Can you check lsmod on Saluki vs a working system?

So here is the module difference between racy and saluki.
Code:
19a21,22
> pwc
> shpchp
38,39d40
< snd_usb_audio
< snd_usbmidi_lib
42a44
> videodev


Videodev and pwc, I think are for webcams, so I doubt that's it. Baffling. I assume running the xorgwizard and choosing the correct driver didn't work. The xorg log from a run like that would be helpful. Does it use the nv driver in Racy?

The resolution is higher than it should be.

This is after I installed the proprietary Nvidia driver.

The video card is a Zotac Gforce GT 220, same as smokey01 has I think.
Different manufacturer maybe.

Damn, I hadn't tried running Xorg from the wizard and selecting xorg @ 1280X1024 as it displayed the following on the initial bootup:

Cannot Disply This Video Mode
Optimum resolution 1289X1024 60Hz

It does actually run if I select 1280X1024 from xorgwizard.

See attached.

Sorry about that, it lied to me and I believed it.

Hi Jemimah

been playing with 006 for the last 3 days and it all seems to work well.

loaded pets and sfs's and again seems good.
Opera-sfs, dillo-sfs and SoftMakerOffice-sfs all work fine.

Gatotray.pet works very well and seems happy in the tray.
evince, galculator and gmeasures all work as expected.
as does Viewnor.

Not so sure aboat Xarchive - might be me being dim -
I usually drag a file to desktop icon and it works -
I'll try file-roller or similar later.

anyway - nice puppy - 'specially xfce/thunar.

Very best regards - Ray

Thanks to both futwork and pacer106 for keeping me in wallpapers! It helps a great deal that I don't have to design them myself!

I've had a crack at updating the puppy universal installer. Since Saluki is for newish machines I removed a lot of the options geared toward ancient hardware and tried to make the whole experience a bit less confusing and verbose. I've also fixed a couple of bugs and renovated the bits that still ran in rxvt.

Test it out and let me know how it goes. The attached pet adds a menu entry for Puppy Universal Installer 2 (it does not update the install icon on the desktop).

Subject description: new frugal install pet.
 

I booted puppy pfix=ram from the live dvd.
I installed PUI-2.pet from a flash drive.
I ran the universal installer and did a frugal install.
I ran grub4dos and rebooted without saving to a file.
==================================================================
I booted the luki 006 frugal install.
The resolution was incorrect, should have been 1440x900, was 1280x1024.
Wired network automatically configured.
I installed some pets and it downloaded flash.
I rebooted and created a save file.
==================================================================
I loaded the devx and kernel source sfs files and rebooted.
==================================================================
I downloaded the nvidia driver for my card and installed it.
I setup xfce panel etc.

I think I used the new universal installer correctly, I usually do
manual frugal installs.
Anyway, this is working well.
