Dpup Exprimo has 3 lines now. The generic kernel 2.6.39.4 version which is good for old hw.
Then there is 3.1.10 kernel version with core 2 and up optimization. Good for somewhat newer hardware.
And this thread with experimental kernel compiles. Usually I grab the latest kernel and test how it works.
All versions have user friendliness with many ways improved. I use laptop and that is why the laptop support has been also priority. I have extensive rox right click support and I improve it when I encounter the need or get report of missing property.
I have as large wireless driver support as kernel compile produces and updated firmwares for all kernel versions....which differ because of that what woof offers....for 3.X kernels Barry K has accepted my updates though. But I have used the most suitable firmware pool for the kernel version.
Also I have proprietary Broadcom wireless wl driver in all but this experimenta line preinstalled

But as usual. Download it - test it - like it - or forget it.........
You can have kennel of puppies as frugal installations. I encourage people to test different versions...

Hi,
Here tried install of sylpheed_portable-3.1.3-cryptofs0.6.0-bogofilter1.2.2-dpup.pet from exprimo pets repo.
Install dialog box told OK.
But I could not type a password in the last dialog box asking for it: not possible to enter any character in the fields.
Who else has tried sylpheed_portable ?


In fact it accepts the input...it just does not show anything. I have used it happily with that knowledgy. I got it working with imap4 configuration ok.
So....just type the same passwd to both boxes and it takes the input ok....lol
I did use Barry Kaulers created pet and if I remember right...I added some missing stuff from debian repo.
In this mixup the passwd box lost the masqueraded characters...when you type. But the app itself works ok.
You could call this invisible passwd box as extra security. Lol... Very Happy

PostPosted: Tue 03 Apr 2012, 15:59    Post subject: NFS  

re: NFS

Hi pemasu,
I've been trying to figure out the NFS differences between Puppy 528 series and the latest built puppies.
The Puppy 528's mount NFS very easily including your snowpuppy 005 which I loaded to see if any of your past flavors of puppy worked.
All the latest built puppies will not mount at all.
(Including wary, racy, slacko and saluki)
I have tried the latest builds with NFS common utilities but can not get them working.

I'm guessing its something to do with the way the kernel is built/configured.
Would it be easy to add whatever extra NFS configuration as part of a kernel build or can it be added as a module later?

Any informed comment will be most welcome

thanks

DC

NFS support is new territory for me.
I attached the pic how I have compiled the kernel for nfs support. If you see something missing...I will check what I can do. At least my next experimental kernel could have the modification.

But...It can be that the kernel has nfs support enough. It might be that the apps and libs needed to use might need update.

re:NFS

Hi pemasu,
thanks for the quick reply, I'm don't know what might be missing either

I've had a look at the nfs config in a frugal 525 puppy k2.6.33.2 the only obvious difference I can see is rpc options.

I'll post a pic tomorrow if it helps. ( can't remember how at the moment)
I've run out of time tonight

thanks again

DC

re: NFS

Hi pemasu,
I went back and loaded your earlier Polarpups
up to Polarpup 003 NFS works fine.
Polarpup 004 (and 005) fail with the same problem as later builds.

Maybe you know what changed about this time?

thanks

DC

EDIT. Polarpup-003 and 005 has the same kernel. Nfs section has been compiled the same way. Of course there has been changes in the build. Both have been created by using the latest woof at the build time so there has been some changes through the woof build. Otherwise...I really dont know. I dont have the woof platforms anymore which I used to build them. Due to the restricted hdd space. Now I have external 1 Tb usb hdd but I didnt have it at Polarpup time.

I have now created 5.X.3.2.14 with kernel 3.2.14. It has aufs3 and aufs3-util from latest commits. I have used latest woof2 and Barry K today uploaded the updated shared-mime-info and I was able to create woof build using it. It had some improvements for initrd.gz and internationalization.

This build has the improved PPM, probepart recognizes DVD movies and other DVD - udf formats much better, glib has been patched, all the recent fixes through my threads. This feels snappy...I compiled kernel with core 2 and up optimization. I dont know if full install has usb mouse detection ok, that is the next thing to test.

I will upload this soon. I just have to update one script and I am gonna woof build this once again. But this looks good.

PostPosted: Mon 09 Apr 2012, 09:09    Post subject: sfs_load-1.9.1  

mikeslr and jemimah report the the sfs_load hangs under recent 3.2.x kernels.
I confirmed and released sfs_load-1.9.1. Please test the new release if you've got trouble with the sfs_load.

Thanks Shinobar. I use Jemimah's patched version of sfs_load in 5.X.3.2.14. I have been in communication with Jemimah of sfs_load problem and kernel crash risk when loading-unloading several times. That and the solution lead to the post in sfs_load thread...and the tests in Saluki thread.
First we thought it was aufs3 version problem but it soon seemed not to be the case.

I havent managed to crash kernel or sfs_load in 5.X.3.2.14 with several google-chrome.sfs loading-unloading cycle. But good to have your updated version for next release and it is good update for other Dpup Exprimo versions. Recommendated update in fact. Thanks !!

Working great with my normal software (plus latest Nvidia 295.33) on my desktop with intel i7 processor. Very Happy Will test laptop later.

It appears to be the fastest yet. Very Happy

Thanks,
Jim
