Maybe we need to load the sfs from the control panel and make a check on the 'permanent'.


Yeah, I hadn't ticked the box to make it persistent. In other puppies it automatically became persistent if loaded on the fly.

So many little, but subtle changes in Fatdog.

Sylvander my FD64-600b1 boots from grub to desktop in 10 seconds. It takes about 3 more sec to show the 10 drive icons.

It purges the nvouveau driver by listing it up on the blaklist, /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist,conf:
Code:
blacklist nouveau

It seems success for the first time, but the next boot, the nouveau revives. Why? Rolling Eyes

EDIT: the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist,conf is cleared after boot. Who and when?

You did better than me, I couldn't even get graphics to work after I tried. Had to delete the savefile and start again.

Did you get Recorder to work in FatDog?

OK, I know SFS incompatibility with the kernel, but this is the first time to see incompatible PET.

BTW, how to make pet on Fatdog64? The dir2pet does not work because of the bug in the petspec.

Right.
If i cannot get the desktop at boot, i type next 2 commands on console:
Code:
# rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# xwin


BTW, How to change the keyboard map on console?
The Keyboard localization on the control panel only effective with X.

Sylvander, as I get it they set it up that way.
Seamonkey and many other applications run under user Spot.
But the x or GUI desktop is root? As you know I am a true noob I only guess.
One get automatically logged in as root for X?

For to not be root you most likely need to create a user using root Smile
and then log into that user after boot? Am I right?

Yes.
But i think these recorders need more function, at least to specify the saving folder because the /usr/local/recorder folder is on the aufs and easily filled up under frugal installations.
Another impression, the icon on the buttons are better to be the same of the gtk stock icons, gtk-media-record, gtk-media stop, and etc. That is, red circle for record and white box for stop.

I thought of saving the file to /mnt/home but that's not foolproof either. It only ever makes one file. Each time you create a new recording it overwrites the old one. It took a little while to work out how to do that. Files need to be moved after each recording that's why I made the window pop up to make it easy to find.

I guess icons are a personal choice. They are easy to change. I like to keep things really simple but functional.

Feel free to make any changes you want.

Pretty hard to get simpler than this, Start and Stop, job done.

Cheers

I just used dir2pet and it worked. Maybe it was fixed in B1.

On Lupu 528 I use the Bacon Recorder. Easy to use.
Would that one be easy to make a FatDog64-bit compatible version of?

"at least to specify the saving folder because the /usr/local/recorder folder
is on the aufs and easily filled up under frugal installations. "

That is what Bacon Recorder have taken care of allowing that one place the
saved file on /home or /root or what to name it. Directly on the HardDisk

GUI to download LibreOffice version 0.17 is out and works fine with Fatdog64-600

Mick informed me this is not yet multiuser compatible, so I will hold it off uploading it to the pet repo. But it does work as long as you only use root.

Nooby is right. By default when you boot in Fatdog you auto-login and run as root, just like in any puppies.
If you want to run as non-root you need to specifically create a user and specify that you want to login as that user.

Perhaps the text is not obvious. I have changed "load permanently" to "load at every boot".

Right on target, Grant ! Smile The drive icons will only kick-in 3 seconds after the desktop is loaded, to ensure that X desktop is running and ready.

I need to test this, it shouldn't be the case. blacklist.conf should not be cleared at next boot.

EDIT: I just tested, it is not cleared. I did "echo blacklist pcspkr >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf" and reboot - after reboot I did "lsmod" and pcspkr was no longer loaded, as expected. Confused

600 supports both gzip compressed pets and xz compressed pets; but only creates xz compressed pets. If you want to create gzip-compressed pets you need to run dir2pet from other puppies; or otherwise you have to go through convoluted process of: dir2pet, followed by pet2txz; followed by tar -xJvf; followed by tar -czvf; follewed by tgz2pet.

Use the pkeys= boot parameter. You can specify anything which exist in /lib/keymaps
