Kernel 4.2.5 is uploaded. It uses stemsee's config (same as in peebee's new 'current' LXpup).

It's in the ibiblio repo <-- http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/huge_kernels/

Kernel sources are at pet_packages-slacko6414.1 in the repo.

If you've done a frugal just download and extract it and run
Code:
change_kernels


I changed kernels on my HP desktop install.
It's working okay so far.

Thanks

PostPosted: Mon 09 Nov 2015, 02:02    Post subject: fw_drv missing in 6101 releases  

Tests 6101 both 32 & 64 bit. Same problems on AIO.
Now, touch ability is completely missing. And DVD Live boot does not pick up either the AIO's ethernet adapters (wired/wireless), merely "lo" on the AIO.

Further, I see that the fw_drv is missing with the current ISOs.

On the AMD desktop its motherboard wired adapter is found. Pristine to desktop shows: 32bit
Code:
# uname -a
Linux puppypc13955 3.14.55 #1 SMP Mon Oct 26 11:54:01 AEST 2015 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

And 64bit

And I am posting from it currently. All seems OK.

1.Did a 2nd manual frugal install to a usb-3.0 SSD on Gateway desktop.
2.Switched to kernel 4.2.5
3.Installed proprietary Nvidia driver.
4.Installed the usual apps with PPM + pets.

sh-4.2# uname -ra
Linux puppypc6629 4.2.5 #1 SMP Sun Nov 8 15:18:17 EST 2015 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
sh-4.2#


It's working well, no problems so far.

gc - Try your new machine with the new kernel.

Steps to make an iso.

Code:

# download
wget http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/huge_kernels/huge-4.2.5-slacko64.tar.bz2
md5sum huge_kernels/huge-4.2.5-slacko64.tar.bz2
# extract
tar xvf huge_kernels/huge-4.2.5-slacko64.tar.bz2
# rename and move
mkdir newiso
mv vmlinuz* newiso/vmlinuz
mv kernel*  newiso/zdrv_slacko64_6.1.0.1.sfs
# mount the iso
mkdir isomount
mount -t iso9660 /path/to/slacko64-6.1.0.1.iso  ./isomount -o ro
#get the id string
ID=$(tail -c32 isomount/vmlinuz)
# tack it onto the new files
echo -n $ID >> newiso/vmlinuz
echo -n $ID >> newiso/zdrv_slacko64_6.1.0.1.sfs
# copy old iso files to new
for i in $(ls isomount|egrep -v 'vmlinuz|zdrv');do cp -a  isomount/$i newiso/;done
# unmount
umount isomount
# make CD iso image
 mkisofs -D -R -o slacko64_6.1.0.1.new.iso  -b isolinux.bin -c boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table ./newiso/


EDIT:

were a couple of bugs above but fixed now as I actually did the process.

Delta is uploading for newer kernel (it is the same config that you report success for in peebee's thread).

Direct download <-- http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/test/slacko64/6101/slacko64-6.1.0.1.iso___slacko64_6.1.0.1.new.iso.delta

I used the delta to make the new iso and did a manual frugal install with that.
Tried it on my acer laptop with touchscreen but it didn't work, touching the screen would show a mouse pointer about 1 inch to the right and lower about the same.

I never did create a save file if that matters.

in Xorg.conf set the following

Code:
    Option "AutoAddDevices" "true"


This 'fixes' touch but breaks other stuff though, maybe even your keyboard!

Touch is a big mess becuase of Xorgwizard. It won't be fixed properly anytime soon unfortunately.

Any kernel should work the same anyway for most touch stuff.

@Billtoo
I did use that technique on 1st Slacko64. I didn't have any reported problems then. That does not mean that the current distro is problem-free when that edit is used.

I am not sure if the same setting is used in @TaZoC's Lighthouse or in Dry Falls Just-Lighthouse, but I have not have problems there, over the years of use.

@01Micko,
  • What would you advise for those of us who will be getting/using touch PCs as we go forward?

  • Or should there be have a thread for using and reporting any issues when running a touch version of Slacko64?
Willing to do whatever you feel is right to assist.

@gc

for touch just do the xorg hack until further notice.

Please test that delta.. you complained, you got. Plus I reckon the kernel is your issue, since it worked in peebee's distro.

2015 and terminal frustration?
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Home_and_End_keys_not_working
And really annoying default jwm keybindings:
Alt+Left/Right are used for back/forward navigation across nearly all browsers - its really annoying to switch desktops instead.

Am I the only one that uses a keyboard regularly?

Then there are the typical problems with my laptop.
* No right clickability on builtin touchpad (using flsynclient 2/3 finger click workaround + external mouse now)
* Intel sound always tries to use device 0 (hdmi?) instead of the actual audio, but I'll deal with that one whenever I download chrome/chromium so I can watch netflix - I don't need sound to code.

My findings after following kernel instructions. This is a pristine DVD boot results from the ISO built via instructions:
Code:
# uname -a

Swap:            0            0            0
And, the xerrs.log is attached. The GPT messages I understand, but the iptables???

No relief, yet.

BTW: On the ability to "see" all of my USBs, I added 8, and this kernel-version sees all on the AIO desktop.

A delta is up from 6.1.0.1 >> 6.1.3.1 to upgrade your iso image. Use the Xdelta prog in the menu.

6.1.3.1 - What an awesome distro Very Happy

Some first-run-notes:
- I activated the firewall (default options) via the connectwizard BERFORE I set up an internet connection, and it stopped all traffic. There should probably be a msg or similar to avoid this.
- The icon for the Figaros password manager is out of size.
- Will there be available a catalyst driver for Radeon HD 6550D (get correct resolution - now using vesa)?

Sigmund
The Zabuton icons are green
