PostPosted: Sun 15 Jul 2012, 02:50    Post subject: Not letting me make the choice to save  

I'm booting a vanilla slacko 5.33 frugal install off a usb stick. When I shut down, I'm not given the choice to save back to usb stick. Apparently it just saves without any input from me because changes do persist across a reboot. When I reboot I get an window that says x was not shut down properly and choices to ignore or go to the command line. Any ideas?

How did you do the install to USB stick?

That is normal operation after making the save file and rebooting.

When shutting down or rebooting slacko 5.3.3 after first boot it hangs at "Putty linux is shutting down..." and i have to use the powerbutton to power off.

This happens both when saving and not saving to usb, or even using a liveCD. When saving to usb the saved filesystem i ruined when trying to boot again.

I've tried both the 4g and highmem iso, but no difference.

Computer specs:
Processor: IntelCore i7-2670QM @ 2.20GHz
Memory: 8GB
Graphic: Gforce GTX 560M
Wifi: Atheros Ar9300 Driver: ath9k
USB: 2GB

Try this just to see if it has an affect.
Boot with the Slacko live CD.
Use boot option puppy acpi=off

Just did a full install of Slacko 533 on a brand-new i3 system with 8GB RAM, so I used the PAE kernel. Slickpet recommended the mesa driver and downloaded it but it simply won't install. Just a guess, the driver needs to be compiled in this kernel? I'm not sure my abilities are up to it. Volunteers?

Mesa is not kernel dependent.

I first learned of mesa not installing a couple of weeks ago. Unfortunately I haven't been able to upload to ibiblio for a couple of weeks, ok now though so I am re-uploading mesa. It's the same package but there must have been some corruption in the original upload. I just tested the package on a new install and it works.

Please try again soon, (wait a bit for the mirrors).

PostPosted: Sun 22 Jul 2012, 20:37    Post subject: WinTV card working in Slacko  

With a lot of help I've gotten GMPlayer to play live TV under Slacko. You need:
--supported TV tuner card (mine is Hauppauge WinTV1850)
--dotpet from http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Multimedia/Mplayer-1.0rc1/linuxtv-DVB-apps-1.1.1.pet
--Wouldn't hurt to read Paulski's post where I got most of this: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=36672
Install the .pet, then go to /root/my-applications and read the readmes. Open a terminal there, and depending on where you are and what hardware you have, scan your channels. In the US:
Code:
scan us-ATSC-center-frequencies-8VSB | tee channels.conf
. This will create channels.conf in the same directory; copy that to /root/.mplayer (note: this does not exist until GMPlayer has been run and shut down once). At this point (and after installing the .pet) I rebooted; don't know if it was necessary, but it didn't hurt anything. Open GMPlayer (desktop "play" icon), click file>TV>open digital TV. The >| and |< buttons change channels, or view>playlist and double-click the channel you want. Happy couch-potato-ing!
Edit: After hooking up to a good antenna and re-scanning, GMPlayer started crashing. I had too many channels! Opened channels.conf as text and pruned several lines (channels I didn't want), that fixed it. Does GMPlayer have a limit on size of playlist, around 35 or 40 items?

I like this new 5.3.3 but...

I had a hard time in 5.3.1 getting my bluetooth keyboard to work but I managed it.

Trying the same thing in 5.3.3, I can't do it- because when I type modprobe rfcomm it says:

"fatal: module rfcomm not found"

Same with l2cap.

I tried copying them from 5.3.1 to the appropriate folder, but then it tells me it's an invalid module format.

Do you have to recompile the kernel with those modules, or can you perhaps make a pet so we can install them?

Did you mean to leave them out, or was that by mistake?

Blueman tells me that bluez daemon isn't running, and while I have it installed, I don't know how to get it going. Typing hcidump gives me an "address family not supported by protocol" message.

I love slacko, but I'd really like to see better bt support.
I REALLY want to use my mini bt keyboard with this!

PostPosted: Mon 13 Aug 2012, 05:13    Post subject: USB Storage read-only  

Having used puppy as my live-cd/rescue-cd of choice for several years, I have just done my first frugal install of slacko on an old netbook.

Mostly things work fine - but I have just noticed that I am unable to mount any usb storage as read-write; whether through the desktop icons or through command-line all usb drives mount as read-only.

I have searched as far as time and bandwidth will allow, but I cannot find this mentioned anywhere else in the forums. Is this a common problem - have I made a stupid mistake somewhere?

Thanks, Richard.

More details, please? Just how old a netbook and what kind? I recall something in Barry's blog about kernel support for USB1.0 going away, is it that old? What filesystem(s) are on the drives? And is this peculiar to Slacko or will LuPu or some other Puppy do the same thing? Anytime Puppy thinks there might be something wacky with a drive (or interface to it ) it will only mount it read-only. If it is a FAT filesystem you can try:
Code:
mount /dev/xxx -t vfat -rw /mnt/xxx

Or ntfs if that's what it is. Good luck!

As far as searching goes, this helps:
