Installed to small 2GB SD card, in mini USB reader. Loaded and running well on two older dual core systems.

Same problems as others observed with VLC. Is this the same workaround required as Quirky 8.1.6 with the package name hack? Didn't try that yet. Just tried installing MPV and SMPlayer and that works fine.

Also some problems with speaker volume control. Always have to fiddle with it on this laptop with analog on 2nd card, but couldn't make it work here. Alsamixer worked though, to raise level and unmute, just not tray speaker icon control. Video and Youtube worked fine.

Okay. I broke the Seamonkey in Container. It worked the first few times and then, nothing. I installed right-click tools; not sure if it created some sort of conflict. Not sure how to boot Seamonkey container without the Menu so she's a goner.... for now.



You can do it from a terminal:

Just in case it is still running:

# stop-container seamonkey

This will start the container and launch seamonkey:

# ec-chroot seamonkey

Also, it should be possible to run seamonkey, or any app, from within the "sh0" container.

Experienced a hard hang on 2nd laptop test system. Worked initially, but after installing a just a few things, hangs with black screen or frozen mouse pointer on black screen at late stage of bootup.

Only installed B43 firmware, configured networking, and installed MPV/SMPlayer and browsed and played some videos I think. Will go back later and see if I can reproduce.

For now, I was trying something else. Tested with a VirtualBox install onto VHD, and that went fine, fully functional. Then with a few things tested there, did a manual hard drive install on the laptop. Copied boot and work files into existing Windows and Quirky partitions respectively, edited BOOT_SPECS, and looks to be functioning fine.(much faster than the USB)

This time, tried the zvlc hack and that did get the VLC program to launch, but getting h.264 error when trying to play MP4 video. This workaround did work in Quirky 8.1.6.

PostPosted: Sun 19 Mar 2017, 15:30    Post subject: kernel config
Subject description: KMS EDID
 

Formerly my computer was running with video driver modesetting only.

drm can be enabled now but kernel needs to be configured for EDID.

Kernel configuration contains:
Code:
#
# Direct Rendering Manager
#
CONFIG_DRM=m
CONFIG_DRM_MIPI_DSI=y
CONFIG_DRM_KMS_HELPER=m
CONFIG_DRM_KMS_FB_HELPER=y
# CONFIG_DRM_LOAD_EDID_FIRMWARE is not set
CONFIG_DRM_TTM=m


Please set CONFIG_DRM_LOAD_EDID_FIRMWARE (m or y?)

More about my findings here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=944217#944217

Thank you

Very nice! I think this is going to be a keeper. My box isn't compatible with syslinux, but the following grub.cfg on sb2 booted right up. Posting from it now...
Code:
insmod png
background_image /menu.png
set timeout=10
menuentry "Easy-Linux" {
    linux /vmlinuz rw
    initrd /initrd.q
}

menuentry "   ---" { true; }

menuentry "Firmware configuration" {
    fwsetup
}
menuentry "Shutdown" {
    halt
}
menuentry "Reboot" {
    reboot
}

just in case others have grub2 installed.

thanks,
df

Hi BarryK:

The stop-container seamonkey did nothing (maybe wasn't running).
error can't unmount: /mnt/sdf2/containers/seamonkey/container: Invalid Argument

can't unmount /mnt/sdf2/containder/seamonkey/.ro0

The ec-chroot seamonkey did not work.

chroot: can't execute '/ec-run': no such file or directory.

BTW - The screenshot went to mnt/sdf2/home/media/images ... Pretty deep sub-directory. Found it but not very user friendly going that deep... in my opinion, of course. Couldn't attach the screenshot, either. Too big to attach on this board...

Anyway, thanks for all...

slavvo67

p.s. - Did you scrap the old firewall for security reasons or just a change of pace? - thanks...

Easy Linux 0.2

- bootup is much too slow and long.
Snapshot at bootup is not necessary ? and much too slow.

- vlc doesnt play videos (I prefer xine)
Code:
[000000000063b2f8] pulse audio output error: PulseAudio server connection failure: Connection refused
VLC could not decode the format "h264"


- aumix is not practical and doesn't work ok for my soundcard.

- # defaultchat
Code:
(gst-plugin-scanner:24758): GStreamer-WARNING **: Failed to load plugin '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gstreamer-1.0/libgstlibav.so': libnuma.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


- I dont have any cd or dvd player and run
# defaultcdplayer
takes forever to load and when closing it
Code:
sh: line 0: echo: write error: Broken pipe


- I download firefox official binary
When I run it
Code:
(firefox:5643): Gtk-WARNING **: Error loading theme icon 'dialog-warning' for stock: Icon 'dialog-warning' not present in theme ubuntu-mono-dark
(firefox:5960): GLib-GIO-WARNING **: Failed to execute child process "update-mime-database" (No such file or directory)


- some empty folders, what are they for ?
/usr/etc/
/usr/games/

- /var as symlink not a good idea. I prefer it a normal directory.

- Still waiting for the barebone version.

Thanks for reporting that, fixed. Same bug is in Quirky 8.1.6.

Thank you


Yesterday I compiled the 4.10.4 kernel, with the express purpose of enabling that option. However, from the description, is seems that it doesn't really do anything, only provides a fallback if special firmware is provided, and a kernel boot commandline option provided.

Also, it seems to only be required if the monitor is "broken" and the kernel is unable to read its edid.

Have I understood this correctly?

PostPosted: Fri 24 Mar 2017, 05:54    Post subject: devx loading problems  

tried to load it via the container instructions/scripts but it didn't. I followed what I thought were the instruction and checked multiple times.

Sorry but do you have a walkthrough of how and where as i'm use to just installing, or should I just unpack, dir2pet, and install it?

OH it took nearly forever to get loaded on a 64gig stick (all I had at the time free) but it did eventually install and convert the q.sfs across, but it's still slow starting. I think i'd rather just be able to install it in quirky format for a permanent set. On the other hand at least it loaded on the dell boxes that won't handle the normal .sfs's.
