@Mikeslr:-

I did decide to go with ext2 in the finish; I also read the discussion thread about the flash filesytems (Tallboy, wasn't it?), and came to the conclusion that ext2 should be the best choice. Still won't have it, though.....

I can't help wondering if there's some kind of delay in the initialization process, which could be increased....merely to give the machine more time to find it. I've tried this same ext2 format on half-a-dozen of my SanDisks, and not one of them can 'find' the main .sfs file. These same sticks have all worked successfully with various distros before, so I can't believe that they've all packed up simultaneously...that's stretching the laws of coincidence a wee bit too far.

I suspect it could simply be down to the way that SanDisk have written their controller software for the sticks. I believe, as starhawk mentions, that there's something there that something else doesn't like.....whatever that may be.

(And no; my solitary TDK won't succeed with ext2 either.....still won't 'find' the sfs.)

I'm definitely one of your 'hardware' types....not a 'software' one!


Regards,

Mike. Smile

Just tried rcrsn51's method for doing a manual version of UNetbootin:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=413412#413412

Once again, no format was specified for the USB drive with gParted; I get the impression he was talking about a standard flash drive, as bought, with vfat (FAT32). Which brings me back to my problem I have, with my BIOS not even 'seeing' a vfat-formatted drive with the boot flag set....

So, I re-did it with ext2. No joy. Upon booting, the system appears to be looking for a CD. This, I guess, is because although isolinux.cfg has been renamed to syslinux.cfg, it still contains the isolinux files, for a CD boot. Make sense to anyone?

I can't help wondering if this has got anything to do with the fact that, when I upgraded to the X2 (and had to re-flash the BIOS to a newer version, to accomodate the 'new', dual-core layout), we did it from within Linux. Most folks, I get the impression, do this from within Windows (where of course FAT32, and indeed ntfs, are 'native' file-systems).

Does this make any sense to anybody? Because it still makes a mockery of the fact that I have a flash install of Tahrpup 6.03 which I've got set-up, just in case I ever need a standalone install, to perform some arcane, Linux-only 'repair job'(!).....and this boots perfectly, every time; and even loads its own savefile, from the stick, instead of the one from my sda1 install of Tahrpup.

I say that, 'cos I've just discovered that X-Slacko (this is 2.3.2, based on Slacko 5.7.0), instead of writing its save-folder to the same partition where it's installed (sda7), has, instead, gone and written it to sda2.....where my 'normal' install of Slacko 5.7.0 lives!

Why on earth has it gone and done that???

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Just had a thought. (Yah, the old grey cell is working overtime today..!) The re-named 'syslinux.cfg' still has pmedia=cd as the last item on its boot argument line. I'm going to change it to pmedia=usbflash, and see what happens.


Regards,

Mike. Confused

Nope. No change. Still looking for a CD. Hmm... What to try next?

I've uploaded a Caja-1.10.1 file manager .pet to the repo, it requires libunique which is also there. A few things in the right click context menu don't work but otherwise a decent file manager.

Is Caja a dual pane file manager? I think you know the need.

@gc -- Caja is like Thunar with at least one tiny nifty feature... I'm on the phone on hold, or I'd take the time to explain...

@rg -- cool! Thanks Very Happy

EDIT: OK, off the phone. Here's the scoop on Caja's nifty feature.

In Windblows, you sort a folder by modification date, and only that one folder is sorted that way. Move out of that folder, and wherever you are next, chances are pretty high that it isn't still sorting by modification date.

In Thunar, PCManFM, etc -- basically the major Linux file managers (ROX-Filer doesn't count, sorry) -- you sort by modification date and it applies that to every single thing ever until you change the sort method again.

Caja and its predecessor (the late Nautilus of GNOME2 fame) have the Windblows behavior... they sort one folder, only one folder, and they remember how it's sorted.

Yeah, I know, "who left the cap off the freakin toothpaste", right? But it gets on your nerves more than you'd suspect... at least, it does for me.

Yes, go to View > Extra Pane or use F3. Unfortunately, it doesn't hold that setting so has to be done every time.

That Caja dotPET needs one additional little thing -- a symlink from /usr/lib/libdconf.so.0.0.0 to /usr/lib/libdconf.so.1 Wink

Otherwise it doesn't work. Dies with an "I/O error" message.

EDIT: also, it seems to commit suicide when you unmount a drive. *ALL* instances are killed. (There's *got* to be a way to fix that. There's got to.)

It looks like I forgot the symlink, I'll fix that that and re-upload. Thanks

1.8.1 also crashes on unmount as does the caja in jejy69's mate sfs. Haven't figured out how to stop that.

Edit: Re-uploaded with symlink

Thanks Puppus Dogfellow for mirroring. What I lost from Carolina-linux.com was X-precise-1.0 > 2.3 and X-slacko-1.0 > 2.3. Ally has them all archived at https://archive.org so not a big deal.

no problem, rg66--been meaning to mirror one of your spins for a while now. (picked the pae version of the newer slacko spin because that's the one i'd personally install, i think.)

I've uploaded two bluetooth .pet's to the repo

http://smokey01.com/rg66/X-slacko/pet_packages-X-slacko/

bluetooth-1.0-xslacko is the full version with all needed packages included.

Alternatively, I think it's better to download all the packages separately from the repo so they show up as installed in PPM.

For bluetooth-1.1-xslacko

Download and install these packages:

blueman-r708
bluez-4.99
dbus-python-1.2.0
djvulibre-3.5.25-i686_slk600
gst-plugins-base-0.10.36
gstreamer-0.10.36
ilmbase-1.0.3
libvisual-0.4.0
notify-python-0.1.1
obex-data-server-0.4.6
obexfs-0.12
obexftp-0.23
openexr-1.7.1
openobex-1.5
pycairo-1.8.10
pygobject-2.28.6
pygtk-2.24.0
bluetooth-1.1-xslacko

For both versions:

Requires the devx to be loaded or python-2.7.5 from the slackware repo (PPM). A restart is needed so a save is also required.
