I like that "open with rox" button in MUT. That's the only thing I would miss with PMount. I have no preference other than that.

I've been using pmount lately instead of MUT and I agree, it's the 'open with ROX' button I miss.

I also find myself having to think twice whether 'red' or 'green' means 'mount' or 'unmount' (I realize that when a drive is mounted, details show up to the left).

However, MUT's use of 'mount' and 'unmount' can't be much clearer.

EDIT: I'm no graphics artist, but how about modifying the icons something like this

Yes, there is a problem with 'lock' in 2.13beta, but it will only show up if you don't already have /root/.xlockrc

If /root/.xlockrc is missing, the usual (for 2.13beta) problem of mrxvt vs. rxvt problem surfaces.

This is what happens in the lock script if I execute part of the offending line in mrxvt
Quote:
# rxvt -bg orange -g 36x1 -title "Create key (password)"
mrxvt: bad option "key"
mrxvt: bad option "(password)"
mrxvt: Use -h, -help or --help to get help
#

It's a good thing Barry is putting the rxvt binary back in Wink

PostPosted: Thu 28 Dec 2006, 16:19    Post_subject: Crash booting  

I have a P4 3GHz hyper threaded system. It has the onboard shared memory graphics adapter and I also have an ATI Catalyst on the PCI bus. If I boot with the ATI selected as the primary graphics adapter 2.13 crashes. If I switch back and set the embedded controller as default it boots, but I get the problem iof X not running and can't even get XVesa to run.

I modified pmount with a rox launcher and Barry downloaded my modified code. Not sure why he didn't include it since it seems to work good for me.

You can get it in this thread:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=12733&start=15

I know dougal's been modifying pmount too so maybe he'll include that feature.

Thanks, plinej, I missed that thread. I just tried it and it works great Smile

Yes, he has streamlined it. He sent me a copy to test - it is 30% faster on the eBox, where the difference is quite noticeable. He told me he has been quite busy, so he probably hasn't had time to post his version yet. Seems like merging his version with yours will make pmount a real winner Cool

EDIT: I've PM'ed Dougal, asking him if I can post his version for him. Then, if you like, you could perhaps merge the two versions. Maybe we can make it into 2.13 final Wink

Sounds good to me. I'll be more than happy to do that.

Just out of perverse and morbid curiosity, are unresolved 2.12 bug reports "carried over" to 2.13 for consideration and hopefully resolution? The reason I ask is this: while trying to use gcrontab in v2.12, I noted that clicking the help icon in the gui resulted in my browser to report " /usr/local/share/gcrontab/help/C/gcrontab-DOC.000.html cannot be found. Please check the location and try again." The link works in v2.01, so somewhere along the 2.01>2.12 path the link was broken.

I resorted to http://www.unixgeeks.org/security/newbie/unix/cron-1.html for the help needed, so save your links. heh.

The question of pre-existing bug resolution is what I'd like addressed and/or discussed.

Thanks.

plinej,
I somehow got the impression that you and Dougal are collaborating on
Pmount, so I was waiting for something new to be released.

alienjeff,
Okay, I'll checkout the missing Gcrontab help file.

No problem Barry, I'm sure dougal's improvements will be great. Once I see his revision I'll make sure everything works good for me and maybe throw in some of the improvements I already made.

A lot of people like MUT. As long as it is there on the menu, they are accommodated. IMHO we have to use as default what works and is known to work. In the case of the Rox update, it makes sense to change to Pmount as default desktop icon.


Sorry to sing a sour note about pmount, but besides the missing ROX button (which I use a lot), it also has an actual bug in handling USB flash drives, that MUT does not have:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=13267

See my last post for an updated description of the problem.

My opinion is this needs to be cleaned up before making pmount the default, as it causes no end of confusion.

The problem with the pup_213.sfs not being loaded from the hard drive is a SATA drive problem. If I boot with "puppy PMEDIA=satahd" boot option, then the pup_213.sfs file IS loaded from the hard drive. If I don't pass that option then it loads from the CD and sets PUPMODE=13.

Just tried booting 2.12 from the CD, same problem. I got this laptop a couple weeks ago and went straight to a frugal install of 2.12. Had the same kind of problem with PUPMODE=13, so I added PMEDIA=satahd to grub.

Here's my PUPSTATE file when booting 213B from CD:

PUPMODE=13
PDEV1='hdc'
DEV1FS='iso9660'
PUPSFS='pup_213.sfs'
PUPSAVE='ext3,sda4,/pup_save.2fs'
PMEDIA='idecd'
SATADRIVES='sda '
#these directories are unionfs layers in /initrd...
SAVE_LAYER='/pup_ro1'
PUP_LAYER='/pup_ro2'
ZDRV='ext3,sda4,/zdrv_213.sfs'

PaulBx1, have you tried plinej's modified version of pmount? (see 8 posts up in this thread).

He has added the ROX buttons Smile Works great.

There just remains the incorrect-description problem you mentioned.

Paul

Is the universal installer working?

I tried installing 2.13Beta on my laptop last night, and once I got through all the prompts, rebooted, I was presented with a question: where do I want grub to be installed?

Ok, that's odd, since I was already asked that. I installed grub, rebooted, and once I pointed grub at the correct install...nothing: no error messages, no hard drive activity just a black screen. Odd.

I will try it again tonight to see if I can replicate that.

Other than that, there may be an issue with ROX proper: some of the icon launchers did not work at all (setup for example) where the underlying apps worked fine from menu. Actually, anything related to ROX seemed sort of slow, whereas using the menus (or console) the whole system was blazing.

The system I used was:

Compaq Presario 2100US
1.5 ghz Celeron
512 RAM
40GB HD
64mb IGP Radeon

I will test it proper on my desktop.
