Subject description: Two test request answers
 

G'day rcrsn51,

Quote:
@davids45:

Run "probepart". Does it see the disk as UDF?

Run "guess_fstype /dev/sr0". What does it see?


Here are the results of these two further terminal inputs with my non-Slacko-mounting CD.

Regards,
David S.

You are, as Oscar said, likely running into 64-bit sfs files on a 32-bit machine. The binaries will say amd64. Chrome is also 64-bit only, but you can use the stable branch of Vivaldi 1.9.818.50, which is available for 32-bit machines (i386). I'm running this now on that beat-up D600. It is painfully slow on such a slow machine, but that is what I'm trying to use to expose a nondeterministic timing problem.

Aside for others: At the moment the damn thing refuses to misbehave. None of the machines I wanted to try have been slower, or limited to 32-bit software. If this continues, I'd say you are unlikely to hear from people bothered by it, assuming the dhcpcd_drop_wait pet is applied. This fix seems time-dependent, but I believe the slow hardware which most often exposes the bug will disappear in a few years. I wouldn't bet my life on this software, but shouldn't have to.

For those who have been irritated by my approach I can only say I appreciate that they have stopped short of threatening violence, as did happen in the past when I worked to expose concurrency problems programmers had spent months or years making less likely without fixing. I found the problems, but upset quite a few people in the process. Ordinary sequential reasoning doesn't work well until you have narrowed the possibilities considerably, so my actions seem perverse and illogical. Until you've seen some real-life examples you would not believe the way concurrency multiplies the number of combinations of possible states and state transitions. Nobody can handle such overhelming complexity directly.

01micko,

I did some testing of my video problem, GPU hangs until set "XUA".
I notied that LxPupSc 17.06.22 does not have this probelm, so I tried using it's 4.11.5 kernel with slacko, but that did not fix the problem.
I then noticed that slacko has "X.Org 1.18.3, Open GL 3.0 Mesa 11.2.2."
Where as lxpupsc has "X.Org 1.19.3, Open GL 3.0 Mesa 17.1.2".
How can I upgrade this X stuff in slacko to see if that fixes the issue?

gyro


2 ways I can think of. 1)Try downloading all the necessary xorg/mesa/intel components from slackware -current and run them through the woof templates then construct a y-drive or 2)ask peebee. I do get the issue on my wife's macbook but I won't get a chance to play with that until Saturday. Since the 'uxa' thing seems to be the key for most I want to try and detect errors in the xorg/kernel logs and apply that fix before X starts or if not apply it and suggest an X re-start in a message window (possibly a terminal window or something that doesn't rely on too much 'tool-kit').

So there is a bug in probepart (and further up 'blkid').

Slipped the attached version into /sbin, making sure it is executable, and see if it makes a difference. Thanks for testing.

Hi,
Thank you for the explanation.
I think I have a processor capable of 64 bit instructions as described here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Samsung_N150
Should I run 32 bit of 64 bit slacko?
I am testing the 64 bit version with Palemoon and Libreoffice.

@gyro and @01micko

I can confirm gyro's observations.
I also played around intensively with Peebee's LxPupSc and tried to force a hang or freeze.
Result: absolutely impossible to force a hang or freeze.

In case of Slacko 700 I can confirm too that it is independent of kernel version.
If sna acceleration is used it happens independent of kernel version or 32 or 64 bit.

I'm using uxa acceleration since five weeks and had no hang or freeze anymore.

gyro, I'm very curious about your tests results with X.Org 1.19.3 and Mesa 17.1.2

I installed fix_pupmode13.pet and rebooted before adding anything with
PPM.

If you can run any 64-bit software, the problem is not 32-bit versus 64-bit. You might still stick with the stable branch of Opera, Vivaldi or Chrome.

If your machine is fast enough, and has enough RAM, you would probably do best with Google Chrome, which is well-maintained. As for what is going on with Opera 46, we will need more specific information to troubleshoot the problem, starting with the base description of your system from the Pupsysinfo or Hwinfo report. I can't reproduce problems with 64-bit software on the machine I'm using for testing slacko at the moment. With more information, someone else should be able to reproduce it.

Thanks Billtoo. 01micko is working on this in the "rationalise" branch so if you build with that you might not need the pet any more Smile

@gyro and norgo: Do you get the desktop freeze in LxPupSc if you switch to jwm in the desktop menu and restart the graphical server? Maybe having a slacko-current option in woof-CE would be a good idea? Though, updating often is kind of a pita... when I try devuan ascii builds it seems like debian team updates something every day... or maybe it's just because stretch is now out in the wild. Shocked Laughing

Does the 64bit Slacko you are testing have GTK+3 included? If not, try installing it via PPM.

@Sailor Enceladus
really a very good objection

I didn't try it under use of JWM, but now I'm very curious too.
That's why I tested this just right now and was able to force some hang's.

Subject description: slacko-6999 now mounts & reads CD
 

G'day 01micko,

I've downloaded, extracted and copied your probepart.gz file to /sbin (renaming the old file just-in-case).

I then inserted the troublesome CD and it was now mountable with an icon click, its files were readable, and the CD could be unmounted with another icon-click.

Thanks,
David S.

The Samsung N150 is a 64-bit NETBOOK. You will need to download the Intel 64bit version of this Slacko. 1Gb memory might not be enough, 2Gb is preferred on these newest Slacko's.

========================================================================

FWIW I D/L the 6996 32-bit NP k3.16.43 version and with A, z, and f sfs's ... holy cow 915Mb in RAM ... 32bit non-PAE ain't what it used to be. Exclamation To get this down to a netbook useful size involves LOTSA pruning. (Slacko5.7 EONS for Netbooks of the 2008-10 era is 444Mb RAM)

Thanks,
I have upgraded to 2gb of Ram, so that should not be a problem.
I will start with a new installation and try to generate Opera SFS again.
Alternatives: Use Firefox or try EONS.

I just switched my install of LxPupSc to use jwm, and was still unable to produce a freeze.
It usually happens with geany, very very very slow to come up, bits of the screen appear, moving mouse over makes buttons appear, and when it's closed a blank window remains where geany was.
But with LxPupSc 17.06.22 running jwm, I started and shutdown geany many times, no problems.
