* Move kernel source to separate sfs file. Makes administration less problematic for us.
* Add brctl (bridge_utils-1.5)
* Add dhcpcd-3.2.3 added to /usr/local/bin
* Minimal f2fs support - ability to read/write f2fs formatted partition


Note about bluetooth support:
* Bluetooth support is disabled by default, you need to enable the bluetooth service first.
* You may need to get a firmware for your bluetooth devices to work.
* obexd isn't installed (available in the repo). So far only object push is supported,
object pull (that is, retrieving something from the bluetooth device) isn't supported
so that's why it is not included by default.


Fatdog64 just keeps getting fatter, and not mainly because of additions, but updated packages are always bigger. Seamonkey grew 2MB from 2.16 to 2.17. Hopefully things are getting better too.

The kernel sources have been separated into it's own sfs file named kernel-source-3.8.6 for this release. This makes it easier for us to update due to limitations in Fossil.

Xorg-server has been updated to 1.12.4, we started to just grab the latest version, but 1.12.4 is the latest version that is well supported by AMD/ATI. There is also a libvdpau with Mesa vdpau pet in the repo ( http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/pets/600/mesa-vdpau-9.1.1.pet ) Flash player will use this to provide smoother playback, but right now it's only for Nouveau, r300, and r600. I think the other cards will follow later this year.

If you use the new bluethooth support and need firmware, let us know what firmware you use so we can include it. Links to the firmware is appreciated.

There a new game in there too, kind of fun.


Make sure you use a new save file/save folder, especially if you installed a kernel module

Also, if you use a save folder make sure it's on a ext2/3/4 partition.

Just like with beta1 and beta2, it is a UEFI dual hybrid iso. Which adds 10MB to the size of the iso. You can dd the iso to a flash drive and boot on BIOS computers or UEFI computers with or without secure boot. See the FAQs for all the details.

PostPosted: Mon 08 Apr 2013, 10:30    Post subject: split initrd and LUKS
Subject description: base sfs and enlarging LUKS save file
 

Hello Jamesbond, encountered the following two issues in beta2, and is probably related to the bug I reported last week.

1-when I start the system sfs loader, the fd64-620.sfs is listed in available sfs files, but obviously it is already loaded. Not a problem, but a bit confusing.

2-I get an error when I try to enlarge the dmcript savefile, see pic.

Hopefully it is corrected in beta3, I did not test this in beta3.

Subject description: problem with builtin wireless adapter
 

I installed beta 3 to a SDHC card with the fatdog installer.

video-info-glx 1.5.3 Mon 8 Apr 2013 on Fatdog64 620 Linux 3.8.6 x86_64
0.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Device 68e0

product: PARK 01.00
X Server: Xorg Driver: radeon
X.Org version: 1.12.4
dimensions: 1600x900 pixels (423x238 millimeters)
depth of root window: 24 planes
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.4
OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD CEDAR
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 9.1.1
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU M 430 @ 2.27GHz

Network controller Atheros Communications Inc. AR928X Wireless Network Adapter
(PCI-Express) (rev 01)

The builtin wireless adapter won't work properly as it keeps
resetting and losing the connection.
I'm using my Linksys WUSB54GC 802.11g Adapter [ralink rt73] instead
and it's working fine.

Billtoo,

With your ath9k wireless can you try:

Code:
echo "options ath9k nohwcrypt=1" > /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf



And then reboot

OR

Code:
rmmod ath9k
modprobe ath9k


Then right click on Wpa_gui and select Restart Connection.

If it still fails can you post the output of dmesg?

No, not yet. What you mention will still happen in beta3, so don't bother to test it there Embarassed

Agree. I usually run with the big initrd so this isn't a problem, but you're right. I'll enhance load_sfs to ignore the system sfs.

You are right, resize savefile doesn't support encrypted savefile right now. I'll see what I can do about it.

cheers!

Thanks @Kirk & @JameBond

This continues to be a stellar distro. Its speed is uncanny and the functionality it offers is great. All systems since 2008 have enormously more than enough RAM to accommodate tiny FATDOG and the many additional services that deliver with it. For what we get in improvements and functionality, more than eclipses the minute growth you mention.

This system is GREAT!

No issues at the moment. Thanks

This system is incredible fast. I have a V52x FATDOG that has been a system used for several years. I rebooted it with beta3 and externally, I must say this is even faster.

System booted as Multisession DVD to allow save-session back to DVD media (same as all the years of FATDOG5.xx). Running pristine on desktop, I reset hostname and started swap via "swapon /dev/sda" command.
Enclosed as a reference, is a system report of RAM and Hardinfo. Note that the RAM use in extremely small allowing tremendous space for user applications and user files. .

Along with new functionality, this is "Just Incredible", again.

Thanks guys for testing. If you have a wireless card that uses ath9k please test what Billtoo did:

Code:
echo "options ath9k nohwcrypt=1" > /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf


And reboot. I'm considering making this the default.


If you have a Synaptics or Alps touchpad please test with the attached pet. After installing you'll have to rmmod psmouse and then modprobe psmouse. Or you can just reboot. This pet contains a psmouse.ko module that's been patched to support newer Alps touch pads. If you can test it, let me know if it breaks anything with your touch pad. If you have a newer Alps touchpad that "Adjust Touch Pad" in Control panel would error on this might fix it.

Just burnt to dvd-rw and booted, initial impressions are very good. Insanely fast and almost no resource usage - nice.

For some reason my normal process of a manual frugal install to an SDcard failed. Used grub4dos as normal, which normally works fine.
FD64 is setting root as hd0.0 - I think it needs to be set as hd1.0 (sdb1 SDcard). Not sure how to make that happen ?

Brain gone soft - root hd1.0 - in menu.lst should work - shouldn't it ?

Not the end of the world, as presumably, I can now install from dvd to SDcard (sdb1) using Fatdog installer.

PostPosted: Tue 09 Apr 2013, 18:55    Post subject: Access your LAN's NAS or resources  

MOUNT Error message
Code:
# mount //192.168.143.234/HDD_a /mnt/NAS2 -o username=yours,password=yours-too
mount error(38): Function not implemented
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g.man mount.cifs)
Anyone having problem accessing LAN resources from either your Linux/Apple?windows PCs where things worked properly with the older FATDOG releases, be aware:
With the current implementation of FATDOG, I find that it is REQUIRED to add "sec=ntlm"... at least for now. For example
Code:
mount //192.168.1.24/HDD_a /mnt/your-NAS -o sec=ntlm,username=yours,password=yours-too
           or
mount.cifs //192.168.1.24/HDD_a /mnt/your-NAS -o sec=ntlm,username=yours,password=yours-too

Yep, that's a bug the CIFS maintainers put into Linux-3.8. They don't call it a bug, but I do.
