Subject description: Booting from a CD

Hello, greetings from Central America.

- My CD Optical Device is ok, I have tested others distros of puppy without problems.
- MD5SUM Ok
- My BIOS is configured correctly, no security boot is on. CD boot sequence in 1st place.

-I´m a little new solving problems, my goal is run Xerus64-8.4 from a CD or USB, using the ISO file, and then use Puppy Installer to install the system in a EXT4 formated USB.

Some information about my PC:

Product Name: OptiPlex 740
BIOS Version: 2.2.5 Dell
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+
Total RAM: 2908 MB

Thanks, in advance.

Did you get that kernel panic when booting off a CD?

I just installed Quirky Xerus 8.4.1. I did a fresh manual frugal install of 8.4 and installed the sevice pack pet for 8.4.1. I rebooted. Xorgwizard seemed to come up; it guessed everything right automatically for my new laptop.

For wifi it behaves like all other Quirky's and Easy's on this machine: no connection on startup with SNS, saved profile does not seem to work and frisbee does not find anything at all. I installed the .pet rerwin recently (20180209) offered on the Easy thread and that fixes everything.

Otherwise everything I tried seems to run fine.
I have the impression the CPU temperature keeps low, around 30°C, where I usually have around 36°.


Thanks for the feedback. For everyone else, rerwin created a network-fix pet for latest EaasyOS, they can also be tested on latest Quirky 8.4.1, get it here:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=982596#982596

I forgot to mention that you also need to install the newer frisbee 1.4.7 if you want to use frisbee.

PostPosted: Thu 15 Feb 2018, 17:05    Post subject: NVME SSD Problem  

After doing some research I came across the fix for the NVME ssd problem. It's apparently a setting in the kernel, can you add it into your default set please as more and more notebooks are now using them.

Basically it's:-
Confirm that the NVMe Driver under Block is set to <M>
Go to Device Drivers -> Block Devices - > NVM Express block device
:and of course a driver is built.

There is also opensource test programs at:-
https://github.com/linux-nvme/nvme-cli

Full doc is:-
https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/ssdc/data-center-ssds/Intel_Linux_NVMe_Guide_330602-002.pdf

NVME Background worth reading can be found at:-
https://www.pcworld.com/article/2899351/everything-you-need-to-know-about-nvme.html

thanks
p.s. OpenRC still need you to write init scripts, Parabola Linux uses it, but there are scripts needed for just about everything.
p.p.s just noticed buildroot has a dumb init https://github.com/Yelp/dumb-init. See "Using a shell for pre-start hooks" in the readme.md. Would this do?

regards

Thanks for the info, I will enable that module next time that I compile the kernel.

Quoting from above link:

Quote:
However, BIOS support is largely lacking. Without an NVMe-aware BIOS, you can’t boot from an NVMe drive, though anyone with a x4 PCIe slot or M.2 connector can benefit from employing an NVMe drive as secondary storage.


...which is a shame! Though, I suppose that will change with time.

Na, the link is a bit out of date, it was just the best I've read on explaining about them.

Most of the laptops and tablets brands now have it available, you just need to either do your own configuration (for those that let you do that like it seems all the main ones) or ask them if it's an option for others.

Also, there are low power M.2 2280 cards from intel at almost the same price as others but <20% of the max power with little speed loss (battery saving) and a 5yr warrenty. Don't need a second 'special driver' either like with windows, the default kernel one works out of the basket.

Using Woof 20180211.tar.gz

merge2out AMD64, Ubuntu, Xerus, Woof-Code

.pet packages are not identified as such. See pop-up below:

Would you like to:
Create a new archive, or
Add to an existing archive?

Also, I see update certficates where system is trying to do something. Not sure where it's pulling the certificates from but please be sure they're not your personal ones. Not sure what it's doing....

Hope it helps..

The PETget Package Manager (PPM) was unable to install PETs.

Fixed, see this discussion thread:

ottod wrote:
Experienced Quirky user here. I'm unable to install langpack from pet-noarch. It offers only local source of install, no network. It is the same with any other package from this repo and the other pet-? repo (I forgot the name, not on Quirky right now). The ubuntu repos let me install anything from a network source. This was working on previous versions. I already refreshed all package sources.


Thanks for the feedback. This will be fixed in next release. See previous post -- and link to show how you can fix it immediately if you wish.

I made a manual frugal install from ISO file xerus64-8.4.1.iso to a hard drive.

Sound volume state is not preserved at reboot.

I made a patch that fix the problem.


Thanks, implemented.

It's ok, it is just creating symlinks in /etc/ssl/certs to certificates that are provided by the 'ca-certificates' DEB package.

This is required by the web browsers.

Thank you for your response. The .pet fix did not work for me. I believe it's a Rox Filler association issue. I can install pets via command line....just can't point and click. Also, pet packages do not have the normal .pet icon.

Thanks for any guidance...

If you right-click on a .pet file, choose "Properties", is it identified as type "application/pet"?

If not, the "shared-mime-info" package is broken.

This is the one in Xerus 8.4 and 8.5:

shared-mime-info-0.90|shared-mime-info|0.90||Personal;database|5345K|april|shared-mime-info-0.90.tar.bz2|+bash,+binutils,+bzip2,+coreutils,+diffutils,+findutils,+gawk,+gcc,+gettext,+glib,+glibc,+grep,+intltool,+libffi,+libxml,+make,+mktemp,+perl,+perl-xml-parser,+pkgconfig,+sed,+sysfiles,+tar,+xz,+zlib|The freedesktop.org shared MIME database|t2|april||

That is the one selected by the package list in file DISTRO_PKGS_SPECS-ubuntu-xenial

8.5: Very good, thanks!
Presently resurrecting even more 754 boards and a few 939s. Reason : they contain at least two SATA ports, at least one IDE port, FDD port, PS/2 k/b+mouse, serial and parallel ditto along with adequate USB2 ones. No point in junking excellent DVD drives, HDD s, k/b s, mice & co., most of which were better built than present market offerings.
Just one further request. Would like to activate the 6-channel audio on several ECS761 boards but the ADI 1888 chip isn't recognised. Maybe I read it is a clone/copy of a similar one? or perhaps adding it to the list isn't too difficult? Advice appreciated.
