PostPosted: Mon 01 Jan 2018, 11:44    Post subject: LxPupSc-18.01T-k64  

LxPupSc-18.01T-k64 is a 32-bit woof-ce 'testing' branch build with a 64-bit kernel (therefore only compatible with 64-bit capable processors)

LxPupSc-18.01T-k64.iso {devx} - (devx does not include kernel sources or headers) {kernel 4.14.10-lxpup64 sources}
iso md5 = 07b4f43b6bb7551360ddb5953e88a73e

Delta from 17.12T is available

- kernel 4.14.10 64-bit (alternative 32-bit kernels 3.16.x 4.4.x & 4.9.x also available - all need firmware in the fdrv)
- Made from Slackware-Current as of Fri Dec 29 23:09:14 UTC 2017
- BUILD_FROM_WOOF='testing;6ea03c27;2017-12-31 21:32:24 +0800'
- web browser in adrv is light-48.0
- firmware is in fdrv
- alternative fall-back xorg is in ydrv (no need to install unless needed)

**N.B. the 64-bit kernel means that any kernel drivers have to be built in a true 64-bit system - slacko64 with the LxPupSc kernel and it's own devx is suggested but use the kernel sources above

Woof-CE build repository is: http://smokey01.com/peebee/slackocurrent/

Chromium, Firefox, Palemoon and Seamonkey are in the repository and installable via Internet -> Get Web Browser

The versions of the browsers as of 28-dec-2017 with their md5sums are:
chromium_63.0.3239.108+pepper_28.0.0.126 RUN-AS-SPOT :a58a24daf43937360f2e166918654cbc
firefox-52.5.3esr :c4c2b10ff61e03216c48043ba406db5e
palemoon-27.6.2 :f9294cfb49756fd38e01dafea323118e
seamonkey-2.49.1 :699e87b4036359bfbd396fd837b33b30

firefox-57, iron, slimjet, vivaldi and min are also available

Updated 17.12 +8T to 18.01T on the i5 based Fujitsu S761 laptop (I'm up to 4 of them now). Used the delta, md5sums ok, uneventful boot, quickcheck of systems, SFS browser, video, etc. seem fine, CPU at idle 0 to 1%. en keyboard on this one & I've been using the lxde volume control instead of retrovol in the tray for a bit. It calls alsamixer and does what I need. Brightness and volume keys both working OOTB on these laptops, up arrow function is normal and PrtSc calls screenshot as it should. Obviously I'm in red and orange mode at the moment Wink I'll check a pristine later today.

Interim delta +1 to LxPupSc-18.01+1T-32pae.iso

- kernel 4.14.12 32-bit pae

- Slackware Current Wed Jan 3 05:45:43 UTC 2018 including dhcpcd-7.0.0

This interim delta sees a return to a 32-bit pae kernel....

The reason: my desktop pc kernel panics on boot with the 64-bit build of 4.14.11 (but my laptop doesn't!) - one of the changes from 4.14.10 to 4.14.11 must be responsible.....

The original reason to move to the 64-bit kernel was a system crash on some laptops when a dvd was inserted - this problem seems to have "gone away" with this new 32-bit build (@Marv and anybody else - grateful for your testing).

Just for a bit of extra spice Twisted Evil , the kernel config for the new 32-bit-pae kernel is based on BK's pyro32-0.6.1 32-bit build so testing reports are welcomed. It's also compiled with gcc-7 and is a bit smaller than previous kernels.

Slackware Current updates include:
:dhcpcd:
:e2fsprogs:
:nano:

Firefox-57.0.4 "This release contains security fixes and improvements, in particular a mitigation for a speculative execution side-channel attack ("Spectre")." is also available.

18.01 updated to 18.01 1T on my i5 based S761 laptop using the delta. md5sums all ok. Kaiser patches toggled and firstresults reported in the 'Slowdown' thread. Certainly OK on the i5. Kernel config has intel_pstate governor disabled which is good, schedutil governor not enabled, personally I like it but have found monitoring temps on the i5s I can pretty much just run performance when plugged in anyway. Sound, connection, video, suspend, all seem ok with one change wrt CD autoplay noted (checked because of the kernel change). Autoplay ie. starting the media handler automatically on disc insertion is no longer working. Swapping kernels.. It's not that. On a closer look the change I see occurred between 17.12.8 and 18.01 (I didn't run 17.12.9) and seems like a puppy eventmanager change. See the screenshots below. I haven't done much beyond a swap of /usr/sbin/eventmanager and that brings back the tickbox but not the function for me. A front_end change? Try autoplaying and see if it's just me. Only matters for my 'users' Smile I'm housebreaking the newest S761 rescue and will continue to use 1T there and on my main laptop.

Cheers,

edited once to add governor information. And again to note that swapping the 4.14.11 32b kernel into LxPupSc 17.12.+8T the autoplay function works correctly in that 17.12 +8T as it did with the stock 4.14.9 64b kernel.

Thanks @Marv - 18.01 did have a new woof-ce base and there have been changes to /usr/local/pup_event/pup_event_frontend_d ....
https://github.com/puppylinux-woof-CE/woof-CE/commit/6b81f8b1b9aadc38af63007606fa0f27ed39dad4

Might be worth trying the 17.12 version? (later - done - see next post)
Cheers

Yes - this ydrv (false .gz) reverts /usr/local/pup_event

and when the "Auto-launch" option is selected

auto-play functionality is restored

I've put a comment onto Github....

@peebee can I get your 4.14.11 32-bit kernel source code?

P.S: Can you take a look on slitaz? It uses lxde too. But the pcmanfm can detect mounted disk images. It has search file function. Also can browse and access ftp and smb (if im not wrong).

Can you figure how to make this pcmanfm functions work on lxpupsc?

You're faster than me.. or just awake. I just did the same swap.
Thanks,

Hi @mistfire

4.14.12 is already available....if you mean by "source code" the .config then this is in the .iso/zdrv in /etc/modules....

Unless I'm misunderstanding, all the pcmanfm functions you mention are active in LxPupSc....I use them all the time particularly sftp and smb!!!???

Cheers

+2 delta downloaded, applied, and tested on the Fujitsu S761 above, both as pristine frugal and update of stripped +1 savefile. md5sums correct, clean boots on both, autoplay of CD and DVD works correctly both on pristine with default settings and on my update. USB3 flashdrive shows up correctly on PCmanFM when hotplugged. Nice to see the 4.14.12 kernel. Maybe a few more eyeballs have seen the kpti patches.. I'll use LxPupSc +2 on the i5 as daily and push the 4.14.12 kernel to Artful and LxArtful. Current versions of those three pups are now installed on the i5 and core 2 duo laptops and the Bay Trail desktop with the 4.14.11 kernel with no issues. Samba not being used at this time. Posting from Light in the pristine install.

Thanks,

Indeed - same experience here - suspect this config option is only applicable to 64-bit???

Found at: https://www.debian.org/security/2018/dsa-4078
Quote:
This specific attack has been named Meltdown and is addressed in the Linux kernel for the Intel x86-64 architecture by a patch set named Kernel Page Table Isolation, enforcing a near complete separation of the kernel and userspace address maps and preventing the attack.
