PostPosted: Mon 25 Jun 2012, 04:58    Post subject:  Slacko 5.3.3.2 alpha (shooting for 5.3.4)
Subject description: it continues...
 

Slacko is in the next cycle


This is alpha2 from the recent woof.

It has k3.2.22. It is from the LTS kernel branch which I intend to follow until it reaches EOL.

There are bugfixes and enhancements applied since 5.3.3 but that doesn't mean new bugs haven't been introduced, especially since it's the latest woof.

Download

Known issues
-pupcontrol is still the same, radky has offered to make a woof ready slacko update.. either that or FatDogs's control panel (I'll make a pet soon for that for comparison)
-pburn help
-arrgghhhh.. transmission segfaults, get a fresh copy from ibiblio
- Broadcom may be suspect, I can't test, my only broadcom works flawlessly with brcmsmac
-some things slightly broken for new kernel, nvidia drivers etc. Try shinobar's getnvidia, worked for me. Similar for radeon would be cool.

Maybe just me not used to Slacko?
I guess it does not mount the HD that
one do frugal install to automatically
because it gave some warning about
that partition being owned and it did not load it
by Rox. So I had to go to Pmount and try again.

Finally it did load. Maybe I am too stupid.

I tested SM I 'm using it now and Flash works.
I reused my old savfile. Maybe that makes the test
less of value? Have to run.

Just a quick run, live pfix=ram before I get some sleep. All basics... internet,sound and display all working and correct on initial boot. Other than a couple of missing icons in the menu.... Gnome MPlayer and PMirrorget ..... no problems have reared their ugly heads yet.

Thanks Mick. Smile
No obvious worries.
This morning I was in Slacko 5.3.3 and somehow I was getting no code being displayed in wiki or geany just showing tiny boxes for text or on websites were code was meant to be displayed - Nada, rein, nothing!

Weird. Some sort of font thing.

I installed Chromium and was OK. I think it may have been something to do with an installation of many fonts pet.

Anyway back to 5.3.3.1
I notice some new Jwm styles, very nice, I would recommend some more dark on light, such as gradient bluish as these are the easiest to see for most people. Also the sun and clouds wallpaper would make a great default. Cool Nice!

Does anyone have a later Transmission than 1.20
that supports magnets? The later Transmission in 5.3.3 slickpet did not work with magnets. To use Transmission libevent.lib (I think it is) is also needed.

Another thing in 5.3.3 Flash when downloaded tended to freeze about 3/4 into youtube vids. Does anyone know which Flash is working best?

Have updated wiki front page for now.

Screeny (under graphics) needs xwd is that being provided - there is a screensaver in Mtpaint - and I think you have a script that makes use of mtpaint screensaver?

Cool

Made a new Slacko-5.3.3.1-SCSI optical disk...
Booted it and updated the slackosave file from 533 to 533.1
Everything looks good.
GetFlashPlayer now works. when it didn't before. Very Happy
Used it to install FlashPlayer, which now works, but without sound->[trying to fix sound at the moment].
Fixed it! I had the power adapter unplugged from the mains. Embarassed
With a bit of adjustment in Retrovol mic and headphones are now both good and loud enough.
Hmmm...I'm seeing the icyos2 Puppy videos, but there's a Google advert superimposed.
I'll install some Firefox add-ons.

Upgraded my main Slackosave, a 512MB one originally created in Slacko 5.3.2.8. Once it had got to the desktop it showed the firewall as disabled and it couldn't see either of the machine's network devices. After a reboot, however, it seems to be working normally.

I see that mtPaint is still v3.40, v3.44.03 has been out for a while, you can get it from the forum thread here.

Hi 01micko,

Frugal: light testing with nothing new to report.

Multi-session CD/DVD: medium testing - when using the save icon there is a spurious error message on rebooting - (there was an easy fix which I (or Sylvander) can find if it might help).

General: all probably fine, though, unimportantly, I don't personally understand the new Mesa system and any interaction with Slickpet > Drivers.

My regards

Addendum: withdrawn as duplicated finding.

Looks good so far. I did install the new NVIDIA driver using the getnvidia pet and it works fine.

My usb wireless mouse receiver/transmitter is not recognized upon boot. It has to be removed and replaced and then is recognized. This has happened several times with pemasu's distributions with different kernels. I have no idea as to how the problem was solved.

Continuing to have fun with it.

Cheers, Very Happy
Jim

Subject description: more testing
 

More testing:
I added the slackware repos to ppm and updated them, closed and
reopened ppm.
Downloaded kdegames (which also downloads qt-470) and when that was
finished I needed to download one more lib (also in slackware repo)
and kdegames works great.
I thought I'd give pemasu's new vlc-201 a try so I installed his
ivtv-firmware-1.4.0-8.6.pet,vlc-2.0.1-deps-dpup.pet,and
vlc-2.0.1-dpup.pet.
It works great and supports the pvr card in this pc, thanks again
pemasu.

EDIT: Drat, vlc quit working, can't get it working again, thankfully it still works in exprimo and precise puppy.

Manual frugal install to hard drive.
Reboot with save file to hard drive.

menu->Graphics->Screeny Capture Windows and FullScreen:
Will not run
Get this error message.
# screeny
error: install xwd package for your distro
#

Desktop icon Switcher:
Silver-Marble
No icon examples shown. Just symbols with red X in center.

On first reboot after making a save file.
SFS-Load on-the-fly program pops up.
No explanation as to why or what it is for.
(new user would be lost and confused)

Setup icon on desktop->PupControl:
PupControl->Settings->PupControl Preferences
Many of the items do not have a default selection.
Because of this, items will not show in PupControl tabs until a program is selected for that item.
This is a long standing problem with PupControl. Some program needs to be initially set in preferences for each item to show in the tabs.
(something for the developer of the Puppy version to do. He knows what programs will be in it)

Grub4dos Bootloader has two entries:
menu->System
menu->System->System status and Config

menu->Utility->Icon Browser
This program runs, but does not seem to do anything. What is it suppose to do?

PostPosted: Mon 25 Jun 2012, 18:04    Post subject: Broadcom wl driver support  

I've compiled the Broadcom wl driver for the new kernel and have added it to my pet attached to:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=76495

Includes the rerwin logic to use the most appropriate Broadcom driver for the various chip versions.

Pristine frugal install onto my HP550 - all seems fine so far.....notice that the jwm tray settings (height & iconify) are not quite the same as 5.3.3......

Cheers
