Subject description: No new package manager. Won't load the save file from USB
 

I downloaded and burned Akita 16 to CD and didn't see the new package manager. I did a frugal install on to a 32gb USB drive that had Akita 15 on it then did a save. It told me there was no save file on the reboot but was it was there under the Akita 16 folder when I opened rox filer. I deleted it and tried to create a new one and it gave me a kernel panic on the reboot. I can still open Akita 15 just fine. Any thoughts?

OK here is Akita b16 on kernel 2.6.32.28 Very Happy
I hope this works better for those with newer hardware Very Happy
I have been using Akita this way starting about b14 release Wink
However there are a few things to keep in mind
1. sfs files need to be converted to sfs4 format = no big deal just right click on the sfs and use converter Wink
2. You must use ext3 partition for your save file or Akita will not find the save file Very Happy
" I have been hacking on Akita's ext 4 support but i have chose to keep it until it is nicely polished " Wink
3. Some of the build scripts in the new package manager will not successfully compile = you may have to do it the old fashion way Laughing
3. deadbeef will not run properly Mad = you may have to get a new one Wink

ok so some of you may need an updated xorg use the attached pet Wink

Akita b16 kernel 2.6.32.28 :

Subject description: Hardware compatiblity
 

Thanks, Partsman. Your new kernel version works with my Asus M5A97 mobo and a AMD FX4100 CPU. I could never get connected online with the older kernel. Blazing fast with Qupzilla 1,3. Nicely done. I did have to install the latest flash.pet from the forum to get Youtube to work on it on both Qupzilla and FF17ESR. Couldn't get them to play with the standard flashplayer installer for some unfathomable reason.

I'm also running it from a 64gb USB 2.0 Flashdrive through my Tecra M5 laptop. Ethernet worked but not wifi as before with the older kernel. I can get wifi @ home but not at work with Akita 15. It's says the network is connected and configured but when I try to open a browser there's no connection via wifi. Very Happy

@ LoboGrande
I did notice that I had a harder time acquiring a dhcp address with akita B16
even on the original kernel Confused I thought It was just me Shocked
Maybe try a diff wifi tool Confused I don't know a lot about configuring wifi there are a lot of tricks in the forum but I am sure with a little work it can be made usable I did get mine to connect but took a little work Wink

Hello all Very Happy
There does seem to be a problem acquiring a dhcp address in Akita B16 Confused
This problem does seem to effect both kernel versions Confused
I didn't have this problem on B15 I am not sure what the cause is but I will try and find a cause Wink I have sent sc0ttman a pm regarding this also !

@ LoboGrande I apologize ! I had a little problem at first and thought it was just me ! But it does seem to be more than that ! But I am sure that it can be fixed easly enough Wink

I hope and the intention of the respin with newer kernel is to show that all
puppies never die ! Unless the developer and/or user allows it !
Sc0ttman has shown that older puppies can be upgraded and maintained Wink I also encourage everyone to read back through this entire thread it is quiet remarkable ! As it took some ingenuity from those
that were willing to help Sc0ttmans dream of a up to date puppy 4 lives !
I hope that those who take the time too look at Akita will come to appreciate it as I have as it is loaded with all the wonderful tools an documentation that this community has created in its lifetime Wink
Thanks again Sc0ttman and to all that helped and continue to help with Akita Very Happy

Subject description: Obtained dhcp
 

Partsman, I got on wifi with B-16-32.28 yesterday at work but not the main secure link but the open wifi link. Now, you B-16 won't log into the open either. Now B-15 won't go the secure link either.

I have no trouble getting to the secure link(WPA2) at work with Precise 5.7.1 on the same machine,

Ok Pwireless "classic version" seems to work for me ! even though in the past i have always used network wizard Confused
Anyone with wireless issues maybe give it a try until the other network tools could be fixed Wink
I tried all of the other network tools repeatedly with no avail but Pwireless "classic version" obtained a dhcp address on first try Wink

@ LoboGrande maybe you will have better luck with Pwireless "classic version" if you havent tried it already Very Happy

I also am happy to say that deadbeef and wish apps are working great ! Shocked
Sc0ttman you know I was beating my head against the wall over those couple of things Laughing All seems well in B16 as far as that goes Wink
Something is definitely different and I did my kernel upgrade the same as always Very Happy Makes me very happy Very Happy Shocked Very Happy

If anyone knows and would be kind enough to explain to me where I should
look :
Seems that all of the wireless network tools have the same problem trying to obtain a DHCP address ! I looked at Akita B15 and B16 at some of the network files but I was only comparing them against each other Confused
As I said before B15 i had no problems Wink
Any help here would be greatly appreciated Wink
Thank you in advance Wink

The networking problem exists with a wired connection too. SNS won't get a connection, but network-wizard will. Have to re-run the wizard after a reboot.
Not tried wifi yet. I had stopped using Akita 15 so much as wifi became less reliable (no obvious reason for this). Don't need wifi now as I got a pair of powerline adapters so I can use ethernet.

I had the same problem with the network (DHCP) connection, but when I copied the resolv.conf from another puppy the problem was solved.
Two lines added:
domain home.network
nameserver 10.0.0.2

One other thing...
I found that .pets won't install if there is no internet connection. I think it is the new package management system trying to be a bit too clever. It complains about there being no internet connection, then doesn't allow any other option. I only found this out because of the problem with the internet connection mentioned before.
