Billtoo,

You really gotta start some sort of 'background-repo', maybe on your smokey01 acct, for all the great backgrounds you find and use. Seriously, you really do find the best ones (luv the two above for pyro on the 32gb sdhc card) Smile

Heck, I am still even looking for this one ever since I first saw it (not the dog one, haha) 3 years ago Laughing

I found that background that you like and posted it on smokey's site, it's named photowall19.jpg or close to that:

I didn't feel up to attempting a frugal install so I have a 32gb SDHC card
plugged into a usb card reader that is plugged into a usb 2.0 port in
the back of the computer.

I downloaded the latest Nvidia driver (Nov 2nd) installed the devx and
kernel source sfs's, then blacklisted the nouveau driver, rebooted and
and compiled the new driver.

Also added applications with pkgget.

Good so far,
Thanks.

This is the right place! Just nothing happening, for now anyway.

I have been working on Quirky, but another release of Easy is on the way.

Here it is, EasyOS 0.6.4!

Blog post:

http://bkhome.org/news/201712/easy-os-pyro64-064-released.html

This is a "Pyro", not an "Xerus", as it is built with packages that were compiled in OpenEmbedded.

It features the new QuickSamba, and mikeb's DropboxGUI.

First tried frugal install, but video signal shut off just before desktop appearance, so tried the easydd install to usb stick. At same point the video signal shut off. Computer was still responsive, though.
Connected via HDMI/DiplayPort.

Card: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] RS880 [Radeon HD 4200]

Booting from usb, there is a menu, choose to boot to commandline, then run "xorgwizard". Maybe try the modesetting driver.

that's unaccelerated video, but I don't know what else to suggest at this stage.

Ha ha, no, I take that advice back!

Thought I would test the xorgwizard myself, but it just outputted this:

"Sorry, the text-mode xorg wizard is disabled for this build of Puppy"

Hmm, will look into that.

OK, that message should not be happening. Workaround for now, at the commandline, run:

Code:
# mp /usr/sbin/xorgwizard-cli


and comment out lines 55 to 59.

Then you can run xorgwizard:

Code:
# xorgwizard


and choose the modesetting driver. I have intel video which works. To test, I chose modesetting driver, it is working also.

Subject description: qfix=nox
 

Thanks,
I put qfix=nox in the grub entry and when I got to the console prompt I decided to try xwin first. It came up fine with net connected, audio works, and full resolution 1920x1080. ThenI edited the xorgwizard-cli just in case I need it later. Have not rebooted yet. So, will try normal boot later.

You ran xwin, without running xorgwizard, and got the desktop?! That's odd, that it didn't start the desktop before.

xorgwizard has more wrong with it, needs some TLC. Will look into it.

Notice "share" icon on the desktop. I am keen for someone to try it.

eko audio editor

I was able to get a .bin file to run in Easy Linux with simple click...
http://semiletov.org/eko/dloads/eko-git.a5e9ad1-x86-64.bin

I found it on this Russian site

Review: Easy Linux 0.6.4, released Dec. 18, 2017

-pschedule worked however pclock wasn't installed

-I noticed that there is a window --- BootManager:Manage system services
I click on 'OK' button at bottom of window and the window doesn't close???

- ethernet and samba is running ---> I checked by running 'top'

Code:
dhcpcd  -I '' eth0
is running
But I can't make a samba server???
A connection can't be made by a second machine,
even though a second machine sees the pupshare.
I am using a firewall which I normally don't have on.

I am using
user:root
password:woofwoof

But it doesn't say that I have added this user when I type
Code:
smbpasswd -a root


__________________________________________

On the subject of firewall...

There is a confusing instruction on the quick samba window
which says that two boxes should be clicked but the
two names aren't mentioned. I assumed samba and smb-client???

I suspect it was started, but something was killing the vid signal during the normal boot process right at that stage.
