I was going to try compiling an older cifs module for 5491, but I don't think that the kernel sources are posted anywhere.

Precise puppy 5.4.90 :
- users and groups are still wrong for many files.
- /home should exist for adding new users.
- scripts and files could be simpler and follow "standards", the distro to follow would be "arch linux". One example is /etc/group which should look like :
Code:
root:x:0:root
bin:x:1:root,bin,daemon
daemon:x:2:root,bin,daemon
sys:x:3:root,bin,adm
adm:x:4:root,adm,daemon
...

Another example : /usr/local/lib/X11 should be /usr/lib/X11

Precise Puppy 5.4.90 :
- Files bigger than 10Mb
Code:
# find / -size +10M
/usr/lib/libLLVM-3.0.so.1
/usr/lib/libicudata.so.48.1.1
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
/usr/lib/seamonkey-2.13.1/libxul.so

- Is LLVM needed ?
- Is ICU Data needed ?
- Is there a smaller replacement for seamonkey ?

My mistake. My Win7 shares work fine in YASSM, as does my NAS box. the problem is specific to my Samba-TNG server.

Maybe it's an smb1 vs smb2 issue.


I am running samba_full-3.6.1-s.sfs on my server if that is any help.....

and I have changed woofwoof to a specific password

Hi pemasu
Quote:

Ray MK. Yeah. Your broadcom BCM43225 would need wl or brcmsmac driver.

brcmsmac relies nowadays in bcma. So...when there is this:
CONFIG_BCMA is not set
and not this:
CONFIG_BCMA=m
CONFIG_BCMA_BLOCKIO=y
CONFIG_BCMA_HOST_PCI_POSSIBLE=y
CONFIG_BCMA_HOST_PCI=y

you wont see this selection as tickable option:
CONFIG_BRCMSMAC=m

and so the kernel wont have brcmsmac driver as module included.

So the 3.8 rc kernel does not have your needed brcmsmac driver and it has not the proprietary wl module either.


Thank you for your reply - at least I now know why, and hopefully it can be fixed soon.

Very best regards - Ray

Puppy is comprehensive, practical, lightweight and efficient. This is obviously the OS that I use daily.

But I'm missing an essential application for my life easier: an email notification (icon located in the taskbar).

I use six differents email addresses and I can not find a free application that allows me to notify the presence of emails on these six addresses.

Would it be possible to provide for Precise Puppy a lightweight application that allows to notify emails found on different addresses?

Cordially

I've downloaded and installed Precise 5.4.9.1. It looks good, but I cannot test it properly without the devx and the kernel sources (kernel-3.8.0-rc7-nopae-i586). I have not been able to find them in the usual places.

I can confirm that pnethood and YASSM fail to connect to a Puppy machine (running Slacko 5.3.2.7), but do connect to a Windows XP share.

What is wrong with the supplied Seamonkey's notifications (visual and/or audio)? You can easily configure multiple accounts as well. Admittedly SeaMonkey has to be running but it can just sit in the background if you are not browsing or emailing.

Hello BarryK,

Just a little comment/suggestion if I may.

I always feel that the little Seamonkey icon (of which there are several instances) in the menu does not match most of the other icons in terms of graphics quality.

There are some nicer icons with different ones for the different Seamonkey components in /usr/lib/seamonkey*/chrome/icons/default and although they are .png files I was wondering if it might be possible to make use of them.

If so I feel it would greatly improve the look of the menu out of the box.

JFYI - Puppy 5.4.91 is working exremely well on my 10yr old Acer laptop. Really nice.

Manual frugal to ext3 partition and booting via grub4dos.
Fast, very low resource usage and temperature.

Everything seems to be working just fine OOTB.
(posting from it now)

Hardinfo report JFYI - but from this end on this machine, all seems good. Luvly Puppy.

If you are using gmail you can do the following:

Direct all your email addresses to gmail.
Install gmailtray from the thread below. (thanks to tasmod)

Once you have configured both you will have a tray icon which will tell you when you have new emails.
It will take a bit of work but works for me.

PostPosted: Wed 13 Feb 2013, 12:15    Post subject: Drive icon issue with SD cards.  

I am curious as to why these are only ever displayed as USB icons rather than card icons.
Is this a hardware issue or a bug? - It seems to afflict Slacko as well as Precise.
It applies regardless of the theme being used. Here is an example:
Code:
sh-3.00# probedisk2
/dev/sda|drive|ATA SAMSUNG SSD 830
/dev/sdb|usbdrv|Generic Flash HS-CF
/dev/sdc|usbdrv|Generic Flash HS-MS/SD
/dev/sdd|usbdrv|Generic Flash HS-SM
/dev/sr0|optical|SONY DVD RW DW-G120A
sh-3.00# blkid
/dev/loop1: UUID="f50f62c8-576a-4489-9b81-b520b97e44d3" TYPE="ext3"
/dev/sda1: UUID="9AD88DCED88DA8D9" TYPE="ntfs"
/dev/sdc1: LABEL="SD-CARD" UUID="225A-B7FE" TYPE="vfat"
sh-3.00#

Nothing is wrong with Seamonkey, but with less powerful computers (that is the target of Puppy) Seamonkey is too resource intensive to be present in the background (it uses too much RAM).
I would find free application, lightweight and flexible, which can be viewed online my different email addresses, and then propose the deletion (to eliminate spam) or downloading (via Sylpheed, Seamonkey, & Co).

I confess, on my computer I sometimes run a virtual machine that includes my old installation (when I used Windows). It's a base XP that allows me to use my exotic devices : webcam, multifunction printers -function, etc.
This installation also includes one software that I had purchased in 2007 to view/sort my emails without needing to download them : Mail Washer http://www.mailwasher.net/
Will it ever be possible to benefit from a similar application on Linux?

Google does not need me to become the grand master of the web. I use the search engine, that is enough.
I prefer open source solutions ...
