Did you decompress omni.ja from SM (the "faster seamonkey")?


Oh, well... I couldn't help it Rolling Eyes
So I did and it now SeaMonkey opens in 5sec! Is also 1MB smaller so I can upload the gzipped squashed file that is just under 300MB.
So I did Laughing (above). Third time is the charm Razz

Since I will not be committing this change (would be short lived), I'll put it here so I remember it. Other people may find it handy if they modify their sfs.
Code:
mv $SFSROOT/usr/lib/seamonkey-2.20/omni.ja $SFSROOT/usr/lib/seamonkey-2.20/omni.zip
mkdir -p $SFSROOT/usr/lib/seamonkey-2.20/omnidir
unzip -d $SFSROOT/usr/lib/seamonkey-2.20/omnidir $SFSROOT/usr/lib/seamonkey-2.20/omni.zip
rm -f $SFSROOT/usr/lib/seamonkey-2.20/omni.zip
(cd $SFSROOT/usr/lib/seamonkey-2.20/omnidir ; zip -0 -y -R ../omni '*')
rm -rf $SFSROOT/usr/lib/seamonkey-2.20/omnidir
mv $SFSROOT/usr/lib/seamonkey-2.20/omni.zip $SFSROOT/usr/lib/seamonkey-2.20/omni.ja


Where $SFSROOT is the directory that you expanded the sfs.
Or you can skip the $SFSROOT part and do it in your system that runs SeaMonkey-2.20 (will take ~32Mb in your save file).

PostPosted: Thu 03 Oct 2013, 04:28    Post subject: Fatdog-Arm for the XO-4  

This is the version "1.0" release of FatDog-ARM Linux for the OLPC XO-4 laptop. Laughing

Is based on fd-arm-a3 with additional modification for the specific hardware.

All functions of the laptop are supported including touch, screen rotation, gamekeys, video camera and power management.

At 290MB this build is a full development environment to build any applications that are not in the fd-arm repository yet (please upstream any applications you may build).

This build will not boot the XO-1.75 laptop that requires binaries with the VFPv3-d16 instruction-set

To run fd-arm_XO-4 download the fd-arm_xo4_1.0.tar.gz file from ibiblio or one if its (faster) mirrors,
extract the tarball at the root of any USB (thumb) drive or SDcard,
connect/insert it to your XO-4 and power up.

Using: Fatdog is a bit different than classic puppy as many/most tools including connection tools, are under Menu> Control panel.
fd-arm_xo4 is using (the bit wordy) Network-wizard for connection.
There is also wifi.sh cli tool for fast/transient connections

Known issues

- Visiting specific pages may result in web page and desktop image corruption.
This is a problem of the dove video driver exposed by the mozzila/firefox browsers (also present in OLPC builds).
A solution is to set Option "UseGPU" to "false" in xorg.conf. However this will result in decreased video performance and inability to use Adobe Flash.

- Network wizard may fail to save the settings the first time is run.
To solve this problem just run the network wizard again.

Please report other problem here, at the fd-arm-a3 thread or the fd-arm ticket tracking site.

Fixes/Solutions are accepted everywhere Wink

PostPosted: Mon 07 Oct 2013, 14:58    Post subject: install in internal SDcard  

Puppy and FatDog can install in the internal SDcard along side your official OLPC Fedora builds without affecting them.

The attached script will do just that!
Download it, un-gzip it and run it as root from the directory you have downloaded fd-arm_xo4_1.0.tar.gz into.
If you do not have downloaded fd-arm_xo4_1.0.tar.gz, do not wary, the script will do it for you Very Happy

To boot to fd-arm just reboot and hold the "O" gamekey while powering up.
install_fd_internally.sh.gz
Description  A script to download fd-arm_xo4_1.0 and install it along side the official OS
in the internal storage of the XO-4 laptop.

PostPosted: Fri 01 Nov 2013, 01:35    Post subject: fd-arm_xo4_1.1  

FatDog-ARM just had a bugfix update to a4 and "Fatdog-Arm for the XO-4" was updated to version 1.1.

To install download fd-arm_xo4_1.1.tar.gz from ibiblio or one of its faster mirrors
extract the tarball at the root of any USB (thumb) drive or SDcard with at least 400MB free space,
connect/insert it to your XO-4 and power up.

You can also install it in the internal SDcard alongside the official OLPC build by the attached "install_fd-1.1_internally.sh" script.
Just download it to your XO-4 extract it (gunzip) and run it as root (sudo).
To boot to fd-arm just reboot and hold the "O" gamekey while powering up.
Make sure that you have at least 650MB free space in your XO-4 (~300MB for the installation and ~300MB for the download - you can delete the downloaded tarball after you finish).
The script will not update fd-arm_xo4_1.0 if already installed in the internal SDcard.
install_fd-1.1_internally.sh.gz
Description  Download and run from an XO-4 to install fd-arm_xo4_1.1

Subject description: Admiration and thanks for OLPC XO Puppy
 

I downloaded OLPC XO Puppy Slacko, and once I had bought an 8-GB SD to put it on, and after initial fussing, it performed much better than I had hoped. It is one of the best pieces of free software I have ever used. Many thanks to all those who have helped to produce and present it.

When I bought an XO on the Buy-Two-Get-One in 2008, I also bought something similar on an SD for $50. It was decidedly inferior to what you have done. And it couldn't be duplicated -- not that I know anyone else who wants such a thing, but I believe in backups. Since then I have looked for some sort of backup, now and then, and I finally found a superior replacement for free.

I don't mean to suggest that Slacko is worth exactly $51 -- perhaps the XO is really worth nothing to me -- but it is a great piece of work.

Wow! I thought that _I_ was the last XO user Very Happy
Maybe I'll update the original XOpup when the Lucid update stabilizes, then Wink

Do not hesitate to report any problems/needed features on these pups.

I still sometimes use my xo, but I must admit I have not kept up with the recent xo pup builds. Maybe I will start again. Very Happy

Here is quirky running from a USB stick on the XO-1 Laughing
The good news is that it runs Rolling Eyes
The bad news is that is not any faster or lighter than other "XOpup" offerings. It is actually a bit slower.

The only thing that is really nice is that on the first generation touchpad (the "jumpy" one Twisted Evil ) I do not have any jumping events yet!

Unless there is an overwhelming demand ( Razz ) I do not think I'll be making a public offering

not used to this, my questions and comments went lost in the (mistaken) attchement-file comment. In short:
got Quirky working on eeePc701 but could not read the f2fs filesystem with the XO-1 installed puppy, and i'M overwheelmed with all the hard work so many and so few are doing. Hope i can contribute in the future when i know and understand more than the simple CLI rules

Could you explain what this means?
Which is the "XO-1 installed puppy"?
Original quirky will not run. You need to add an appropriate /boot/olpc.fth file* and replace the kernel (/boot/vmlinuz and /lib/modules/<kernel-version>) either with one from some recent "xopup" or with the original from a recent (13.x.x) OLPC build.
You will also need to compile the geode-2.11.15 video driver (older versions will not compile with this X version).
In either case will not boot (or read) from an f2fs filesystem because the kernels do not support it. You need an ext2/3/4 formatted USB stick.
BTW f2fs is clearly better than ext4 in SDcards but not so in USB sticks

* Here is a simple /boot/olpc.fth for booting from a USB stick
Code:
\ OLPC boot script
visible
boot u:\boot\vmlinuz console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0 fbcon=font:SUN12x22 no_console_suspend PDEV1=sda1 root=/dev/sda1 rootwait rw

Hi mavrothal,

I've been looking for a linux distribution with a recent kernel to try out a few things on my son's XO-1. Can I politely request that you post that new quirky build somewhere so that I can download and try it?

Once I start playing with it, I will probably have a few questions for you regarding which modifications you made to the "base" quirky distribution, but that will be for later.

Thanks!
