PostPosted: Tue 12 Mar 2013, 16:38    Post_subject: Compiling problem  

Hi Mick

PhatSlacko doesn't include the Broadcom wl.ko wifi driver.

Tried to compile it but loading the Slacko5.5 devx with sfs-load-on-the-fly kills PhatSlacko stone dead....

Have checked all md5sums are correct, plus loading the devx in Slack5.5 is fine.

Loading via the bootmanager does seem to work and wl.ko is compiled but a modpost error occurs during compiling.

The delta file for k3.8,2 and the multi-kernel wl driver pets can be found:

Cheers
Peebee

There seems to be a problem with this distro's SAMBA.

I don't think it's time to panic just yet! I think if running live there is a minor bug that sets the share to /mnt/home, which doesn't yet exist. This can be easily rectified with samba simple management. Also, samba needs to be restarted after changing the hostname, this is what may have caused your problem.

peebee, I didn't have a problem loading the devx. Anyone else experience this?

Mick: Both Samba and devx loading look fine to me. Although I don't agree with having the Samba server turned ON by default.

Hi Mick

I think I know the answer.....

My usual method of compiling is to boot a pristine frugal install with no savefile and then load the devx and kernel souces with sfs load on the fly and then make - i.e all in ram.

I guess PhatSlacko with the adrv loaded may use a lot more ram and therefore the above method will not work - will test by having no adrv loaded....

[edit] - nope still crashes even without the adrv

Precise 5.4.93 with the k3.8.0 kernel behaved in exactly the same way:

Sorry if I've raised a red herring.

No problems peebee... if you want to compile in RAM use /tmp but if it was just to be faster, that is without installing then yes, RAM crash is the culprit.

You can also make and mount a RAM disk, Bruce B has the code in one of his stickies at the top of the forum, I forget off hand Embarassed

Yes, should be off. Next time I build an adrive I'll do that.

The 3.8.2 kernel has the same problem with the cifs module as appeared in one of BarryK's bleeding edge releases. - it cannot mount Samba-TNG shares unless the "sec=ntlm" option is used.

Unfortunately, there were several people who claimed that they could not mount their Windows shares either, and no variation of the above option helped.

Hmmm.. I just tried with network_roxapp to mount a vista share and a win7 share and it works fine, however, password protection seems it must be enabled, but this is true of slacko-5.5 as well, which would imply userspace rather than the kernel, in my case anyway. (neither, see below)

Actually, might be a bug in the roxapp (which I thought I fixed).

Code:
 mount.cifs //192.168.1.2/users cif-mount
Password:

Left password blank after turning off password protected sharing in vista.

No. This appears to be kernel-related. The users who reported a problem claimed that they could successfully connect with earlier kernels. However, other Puppy regulars had no problems with their Windows shares.

Some Googling reveals that there are issues with k3.8 and the cifs module. But "sec=ntlm" is the recommended solution.

Why this doesn't work for everyone is a mystery. It probably has something to do with how authentication is handled on the Windows host machine.

I had thought that SAMBA4 had a problem, initially. But, after further review, there is NO problem with SAMBA4 or its operations. The problem
as i have already shared is probably ENVIRONMENTAL (the LAN).

My LAN currently has a AP with built-in WiFi server built in. The WiFi feature is turned off, but DNSMASQ is part of its Linux fabrric.

Thus, when PCs enter the LAN, my 2 PhatSlacko have somehow found their way and became registered at the "Master" (See smbclient below)

Hope this phenomenon is understood. It seems a little odd that the SAMBA V4 is registering while the V3 of FATDOG is not getting same results.

Following is currently seen from PhatSlacko.
Code:
# smbclient -L localhost
Enter root's password:

Hey umair,

No benefit (until proven to be stable) except for the fun of experimenting! f2fs is a new Flash file system developed by Samsung for Nand flash devices such as USB sticks, SD cards, Solid State drives. It is in it's infancy so for stability I recommend tried and true methods.
HTH

Thnx for the info Mick Wink

Possibly related to my problems with the 3.8.x kernels.... some broken drivers in the 3.8.x kernels was reported in the Slackware changelog of March 12...

For this kernel update I decided to go with 3.7.10. Yeah, the 3.7 series
is EOL, but I've heard about some broken drivers in 3.8.x that make me
hesitate to push forward.

PostPosted: Fri 15 Mar 2013, 08:49    Post_subject: Desktop Icons Position not saved  

When using desksetup templates to save changes in which icons and in which position they appear, the changes on last in the current session. When I reboot my USB, the icons have reverted to their original positions.

I can run the desksetup app everytime I reboot, but that's not very efficient.

Would appreciate a fix.

Thanks
Thom

When I first booted up phatslacko it mounted my sd card and even allowed me to reformat it. However, when I rebooted and created a save file, it was gone and I have not found a way to make it reappear. This is the first puppy that recognized this slot at all.

Any clues on how to make if work would be appreciated.
