I get this error message when trying the Virtualbox sfs:
Code:
# virtualbox
WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module
         available for the current kernel (3.8.7) or it failed to
         load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by

           sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

         You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.
Also, I understand that the latest version is 4.2.16.

Regards,
Jim

Click on the System tab after going into the control panel. Double click on the "SFS Manager". You need to download two SFSs;
fd64-devx_620.sfs and kernel-source-3.8.7.sfs. After loading them, open the terminal and type:
Code:
/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup

PostPosted: Sun 14 Jul 2013, 11:45    Post subject: bug mplayer-1.0rc4
Subject description: mencoder not working
 

Hello everyone, mencoder misses libraries for mencoder.
Only the 32 bit ones are installed. I downloaded the package to check the contents and used pet2tgz but could not unpack, I got an error.
I installed the 64 bit libraries from a former backed up install.

On fatdog 621:
ldd -v /usr/bin/mencoder shows libdv.so.4 not found, wrong ELF class

On former fatdog (520?)
libdv.so.4 and libdv.so.4.0.3 are in:
/usr/lib/
/usr/lib32/
/usr/lib64/

The ones in lib64 (and of course lib) are there and are 64 bit, on fatdog621 they are not there.

Is the mplayer-1.0rc4 in the repo broken or is my install Shocked

Anyway, it is solved

cheers

In fd64 v621, where (I assume somewhere in /etc) can I set the hardware clock as UTC? Haven't found either location or GUI to set that yet. Thanks

As an aside, I just remastered my modified system. This remaster script is the clearest most functional I've ever used Exclamation Exclamation In almost all of them until you've been through a time or two you wind up scratching your head and going woulda/shoulda/start over. Not here. All the choices you need when you need them and crystal clear explanations. Very Happy

I removed libdv when I removed Kino, I should have made libdv a pet package. It's part of the Kino pet package, so install that for now. The wrong ELF class means that you have a 32bit version of libdv installed, maybe the 32bit sfs?

Open the Control Panel and on the first tab use Fatdog64 Set System Time Zone.

The removed libs are collected in a package called "lives_support", available through the package manager.

Uh oh, this is currently only possible in "Fatdog-Next" (that is, next release of Fatdog). In 621 and all releases prior, hardware clock is assumed to run in localtime.

My workaround for now for 621 , invoke hwclock in a script in /root/Startup as follows. The rdate here only works here on my ethernet connection. Wireless is usually not up yet.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
hwclock --hctosys --utc
rdate -s tick.greyware.com

i like fatdog64 alot, but there is no wine pet for 621? i think that firefox should come preinstalled too and i would like it if i didn't have to type in fatdog waitdev=5 each time i boot it so the bootloader can find my savefile, perhaps these 3 things are mere considerations.

I assume you have a usb drive.

Wine can be installed by going into control panel, System, SFS Manager. The 32 bit slacko and the Wine 1.5.4.-i486 SFS's need to be downloaded and loaded. I load mine on every boot.

If you edit your extlinux.conf file, you should not have to type anything to load your savefile.

Code:
say Type "fatdog" with kernel parameters, or just press Enter for default boot.
default fatdog
timeout 5
prompt 5
label fatdog
kernel vmlinuz
initrd initrd
append waitdev=4


I prefer Firefox myself but it is easy enough to download the pet especially if you use the European or even Australian mirror instead of ibiblio. I don't know why ibiblio is so slow. Rolling Eyes


Edit: If your boot manager is syslinux, I believe you would have a syslinux.conf file. Mine just happens to be extlinux.

ibiblio is fast for me; it's the repo I normally choose to use.

Perhaps my ISP [Virgin] copies its files to their server.

Remember the problems I had with 610 and 611 that caused my computer to hang up when trying to reboot? They were supposedly due to kernel incompatibility, but I tried 610 again (for informative purposes, because I was having similar problems with 621).

The conclusion I came to is this: 610 does not hang up when rebooting, except when I install jack2 or programs which use jack.

621 does not hang up when installing jack or related applications, thankfully.

But it does hang up and block during rebooting if tuxkart-0.4.0.pet is installed.

The foo2xxx_fd600-2012.05.06.pet also does not work with 621.

Something for development consideration: An addition to PPM allowing the selection and use of a local directory which is housing FATDOG PETs; for example a folder named "/tmp/fatdog64-packages". This would accommodate the PPM's option where "Download Only" is used to capture PETs and you, subsequently, might want to install/re-install from that local folder via PPM.

Here to help
Should downloaded package path be an option for the PPM use too.png
 Description   "Download Only" at bottom-right allows PETs capture for latter installation-system needs. But, does not have a subsequent reference point in the PPM.
