Has anybody else tried pnethood on Precise Beta 6 or 7?? It is very very slow to scan and connect compared with other recent puppies.

I can confirm that. I don't know what has changed in Pnethood, but you might want to look at YASSM. It's much faster.

I already knew about:config and about:buildconfig in mozilla products, but found about:memory which gives an idea of where your resources are going (displaying this page is an extra ~1mb), but there is still room for improvement, since the largest load is "anonymous":
Code:

343.76 MB (100.0%) -- vsize
├──291.57 MB (84.82%) -- anonymous
│  ├──291.47 MB (84.79%) -- anonymous, outside brk() [rwxp] [89]
It is supposedly better in the newer versions (this was from 2.6.x), but would make me consider 256Mb of RAM as insufficient unless swap was available.

Anyhow, thought it would be an interesting metric to look at in new releases when considering hardware recommendations.

Edit: tried out the new version and hacked nobus to be a stub replacement for dbus and dbus-glib that works with official builds and is only a 5kb pet and available sources are here:

nvidia-glx-304.43-k3.2.29.sfs is available.
http://shino.pos.to/party/bridge.cgi?puppy/precise/
Works on Puppy precise beta7.
Made by the getnvidia-0.7.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=72405

Usage:
1. Boot precise beta7 with boot parameter 'puppy pfix=nox'.
2. Run 'xorgwizard', choose 'vesa'.
3. 'xwin' to get graphical desktop.
4. Click the nvidia-glx-304.43-k3.2.29.sfs and choose 'Install'.
5. Skip the launcher 'Nvidia config'.
6. Run 'xorgwizard', choose 'probe'.

Subject description: xxxx.modeset=0
 

So how would n00Bs like me set the modeset line if having issues with the display? I realize the boot options splash for F2 and F3 can only cover a somewhat limited scenario. Would it be something like "puppy xxxx.modeset=0" or is it much more involved? I really have no idea if it would be feasible to edit xorg.conf with mp on an initial boot, presuming the tools are available and I have a legible display for visual feedback to work with.

Perhaps it's as shinobar says at the top of p43 - "It is hard to type such a boot option at boot." especially if you're typing 'in the dark' and kind of guessing if you're doing it correctly, in proper sequence and so forth.

Coming from racy 5.3 (the first pup I had to do a modeline in since there were offsets I needed to tweak to see almost all of the screen at my preferred 1024x768), modeset is now not totally unfamiliar to me as a working concept. But how to do it on an initial boot may be yet another learning experience.

Laughing just as my dialup dl of xdelta for beta7-pae is finally finishing, I see BK will be uploading the nonpae beta7 "targeting older hardware, including older video hardware" (joy Very Happy ) soon..

PostPosted: Sat 22 Sep 2012, 21:09    Post subject: DGCmodem, HSFmodem, HCFpcimodem drivers for k3.2.29  

Attached are modem drivers for testing on beta7 and later.

HCFpcimodem needs testing by someone who has such a modem, because I have no way to verify it works.

Barry,
I have added difference listings for the transition to compatibility with kernels 3.x, to remove the mystery as to what was done. Note that one of the hsf files (framewrk.h) has changed from the dell version to the linuxant version, which is why many changed statements are not bracketed by an if-else-endif structure.

I gave it a 256mb save file and I installed 3 sfs files,

It's working well so far.

Quick test live pfix=ram of the non-pae 5.3.95.1 version of Precise. Booted to a totally black desktop with the infamous "monitor out of range" message. Was able to use xorgwizard to get the desired 1366x768 resolution though.

5.3.95.1 non-pae version live pfix=ram on another old box (2008) with Nvidia graphics.

Booted to a totally gibberish, multicolored screen....... ctrl,alt/bksp led to the same gibberish screen. Hard poweroff. Booted pfix=ram,nox..... chose "nv" in xorgwizard and got...... the same totally gibberish display. Third try, pfix=nox chose "vesa" and at least it's working.
