Hi Mick,

Another super distribution. Very Happy

Although your new Bibletime 2.9.2 works great, there is a minor problem with Bibletime in ppm. It cannot download since ppm cannot determine file size and aborts. Dependencies download and install fine.

Thanks again,
Jim

PostPosted: Tue 13 Aug 2013, 16:07    Post_subject: A LAN anomaly when Slacko56 awakens after sleep  

I have the same problem here with Slacko56 as well This occurs when Slacko56 is awakened after a cover-close sleep with its LAN wire connected on this particular PC.

I'm thinking it can be hardware related, but don't know how to test via Slacko to determine the real issue with this laptop. All LAN hardware is via its motherboard. And no problems on LAN-WAN use when system is booted/rebooted. Only surfaces when sleep-awakened.

Questions
  • Any ideas on commands that I can engage to zero-in on the problem?
  • Anyone else running a laptop and having any similar occurrence?
Thanks in advance for ideas

Edited adding a 2nd question

Hello Smile!

Slacko-5.6_non-PAE:
Graphics work from the start, firstrun/quicksetup reports intel driver is chosen.

Slacko-5.6_PAE:
Graphics don't work from the start (programme-icons are there, rest is black. Right-clicking DT renders menu icons repeatedly ...), exiting X and running xorgwizard, choosing modesetting driver has me sorted.

or ...

xorgwizard, choosing intel driver, accepting blindly (screen's just black), exiting X, editing xorg.conf and setting
Code:
option "DRI" "false"
option "shadow" "true"

also gets me sorted.


Brookdale's a bit of fun, eh?

Cheers Smile/

Great job 01micko.
Slacko 5.6 is quickly becoming my favorite version of Puppy.

Only issue I have is the 10.3.183.51 version of "Flash Player" that comes with Firefox. It does not like my hardware and gives me a lot of problems with video streaming.
Easy fix.
Use "GetFlash install Flashplayer" and download and install the latest version.
Problems gone. Very Happy
