I just discovered a serious bug in the PAE iso affecting broadcom. I will be reuploading the PAE iso soon.

My apologies.

PostPosted: Sun 02 Dec 2012, 06:12    Post_subject: Wrong wl driver in pae version  

Ah - you've just noticed....

Hi Mick

The PAE version has the Broadcom wl driver from the k3.2.33-4g version installed rather than the k3.4.17-pae version......

see /lib/modules/3.2.33-4g

As a consequence it doesn't work Sad

Cheers
PeeBee

yeah peebee, bad one eh? All customers get a full refund.

The delta from 5.3.9.5 is already up, it had the bug too so the delta is 500k bigger. Lucky I caught it before it hit distrowatch.

Good work, 01micko.

Only 1 small quibble: if a USB drive is plugged it is not automounted and ROX-Filer window does not open. BK provided a bug fix for this in Woof:

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02835

Is this a bug or a feature? Wink

Hi Terryphi

Did you check the automount checkbox in eventmanager? The woof I used should have the fix but I didn't test it.

EDIT: yes it works, but an X restart is needed, see screen cap (right click a drive icon to get the eventmanager)

-----------------------------

The fixed PAE iso is up at both mirrors (GMT 1130)

I've created windows installers for the non-PAE versions. You can find them here.

The PAE version should be up in a few hours.

Yes I did and neither X restart or reboot worked. However, I am using an upgraded save file from Slacko 5.3 so that may be the explanation. No problem anyway I have fixed it by installing latest /usr/local/bin/drive_all.

PostPosted: Sun 02 Dec 2012, 13:51    Post_subject: Any possibility of upgrading if nvidia driver needed?  

Hi Puppy experts....

I would have liked to upgrade my Slacko 5.3.3 savefile on my desktop to the new 5.4 but I've run into a problem with the nvidia sfs....

I've tried every sequence I can think of to remove nvidia before upgrading the frugal install (a safe copy obviously) to 5.4 but in all cases x refuses to startup after the upgrade. xorgwizard choose strangely seems to say that nvidia is still present even though I've removed the sfs and changed to another driver before doing the upgrade.

I realise that I do need to change the version of the nvidia sfs to match the new kernel - this is what I have been trying to do - unsuccessfully Sad

Would be interested to hear from anybody else in this situation or any thoughts on how to upgrade nvidia systems successfully.

A pristine frugal install onto the desktop works fine so I can always start from scratch but I've made so many tweaks to get the 5.3.3 system working as I want I'd really like to upgrade the savefile if at all possible.

Cheers
peebee
