Video-Editing Apps that work in X-Slacko-1.1 non-pae


Hi rg66 & all,

Just thought I'd mention that what I said in the following post applies to X-slacko-1.1, at least the non-pae version. Don't know about other x-slackos.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=753063#753063.

You might want to consider mirroring Battleshooter's Openshot and Kdenlive SFSes on your site. Too many good apps are lost because of host problems or if their creators loose interest.

Just booted up the pae version. Screen resolution came up fine, 1680x1050, ati driver chosen on startup does ok. First oddity was with the initial setup dialog box. Clicking on the setup icon at the bottom results in no response. Opened control panel and package manager isn't in there. I found it in system, in the menu, but nowhere else.

Starting firefox, it comes up with a delay, then, if it's minimized it won't restore, just stays in the tray and requires a second opening of the browser that comes up at the homepage, though the history shows this thread that I minimized to get at the control panel again.. The o/s runs pretty fast, no real problems except the oddities I mentioned. Maybe it's just my machine. Specs are in my sig line.

Regards,
Ed

Bit of a nasty bug in X-Slacko 1.0 -- dunno if it's some weird interaction with my hardware (it's happened before) or not.

Any time I install a PET from the forum, or ANY package (happens with compatible Slackware TXZ's and with DEB's as well), a minute or two after I tell PetGet to install, the system 'soft freezes' -- mouse can move, but clicks don't register. If I do CTRL+ALT+BKSP it doesn't get to a # prompt, but freezes hard at the desktop instead -- and sometimes it doesn't even get that far!

Not a good thing.

Was this fixed in 1.1? If so I'll upgrade. I'm still putting that off Embarassed

@ EdD

I haven't had any of those things happen on any of the comps I've run X-slacko on, Maybe check the md5.

@ starhawk

Ya, that was fixed in 1.1. It was a file overwrite warning that was causing it.

Thanks for x-slacko! xfce is my favorite desktop/window mgr.


issue 1:

on X-Slacko 1.0, in uGet, on right-click a file, pick "Open containing folder".

nothing happens. Does not seem to work.


Issue 2:

in "Puppy boot configuration" app, click "Choose which extra sfs files to load at bootup."

nothing happens. Does not seem to work.


(Sorry, i could not find the X-Slacko 1.0 thread.)

Good spot, never noticed that before. It's a broken symlink in /usr/bin, create a symlink to /usr/bin/exo-open named xdg-open and it'll work.

You got it right, all X-slacko versions are under the same thread.

Just tried it and it's working here. Maybe try running from command line to see what error shows.

Type "bootmanager" (without quotes) in terminal.

Ok, you got me on that one. Looks like it's having issues with the variable EXECME at line 244. You could always try SFS load on the fly from menu > system, that should load them every boot as well.

PostPosted: Tue 11 Feb 2014, 21:32    Post subject: update to 1.1  

Curious?

Tryed to do an update from Xslacko-1.0 non-pae to Xslacko-1.1 non-pae. (I load all puppy's from the CD with a Savefile on my HDD) Used an X-Slacko-1.1.iso created with the delta.

Upon running the new 1.1
There was no indicators giving the usual puppy update features.

Does X-Slacko-1.1 just use the SFS and Savefile files from X-Slacko-1.0 but infact updates itself without giving any indication?

I can't find an SFS 1.1 file on my HDD only a Slacko 'Folder' that has a 'puppy_xslacko_5.6.sfs' file and a ''xslackosave-0_1.4fs' in it and an SFS 'zdrv_slacko_4.99.1.sfs' on /initrd/mnt/dev_save (sda1)

How can one tell if infact you have the update or not... looks just like it did before?
or....
does X-Slacko-1.1 require a 'fresh install'?

@sszindian

There's not much difference between 1.0 and 1.1, and since the SFS name is the same it won't ask to upgrade your savefile. I think for 1.2 I will change the SFS names from the stock slacko name to puppy_xslacko-1.2 etc.....
