Delta downloaded and applied, md5sum correct. 23T frugal install on the 2nd gen i5 Fujitsu S761 referenced above updated to 24T.
No problems seen. I think this machine stays with me! I am running a slightly less obtrusive 'process on recovery' section in /etc/acpi/actions/suspend.sh using the following lines:
Code:
openbox --restart
sleep 4
flsynclient -s
Restarting openbox kills the spurious desktop notification and still leaves other processes/programs running. Buttons & touchpad ok with that after a suspend. WM specific at this point!
I haven't changed the delay I put in rc.local for boot. I'll double check the minimum on that later but don't really expect any change. Happy normal boot, happy run for now.

Thanks,

I have compiled the Nvidia driver successfully (needed both devx and kernel-sources loaded)....

What were you trying to compile??

You may also need some kernel headers loaded - try:
http://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-current/slackware/d/kernel-headers-4.9.38_smp-x86-1.txz or later version (changes quite frequently)...

I wanted to compile audacity 2.1.3 with ffmpeg support - and dependencies ...
Thanks for reply peebee ! Yeah , there were some headers missing , as I understood ... I shall try again with adding those headers from the link you mentioned .

Edit : Installing those kernel headers helped . Look here .

Delta downloaded and applied. md5sum of generated 25T iso correct. Continuing to use the 2nd gen i5 S761 referenced above. Frugal Grub4Dos install of 24 updated to 25. No issues noted. The new icons do have more visual punch Smile Glxgears FPS unchanged with the kernel bump, right around 9750 on this laptop. Now running Slimjet 15.0.3.0 from a common SFS (one of OscarTalks) on this LxPupSc, LxPupXenial, and X-Slacko 4.2 on this laptop.

Here is a candidate new kernel for the next version of LxPupSc....

https://sourceforge.net/projects/lxpup/files/Other/huge-kernels/huge-4.12.4-x86_64-lxpup.tar.bz2/download

This is a 64-bit kernel build based on the config BarryK used to build the 4.11.12 kernel in Quirky-Xerus-8.3

Using a 64-bit kernel when the rest of the system is 32-bit is "somewhat unusual" but initial testing seems to be successful - and in particular it resolves the crash situation when dvd's are inserted on some laptops.

There are implications:
- LxPupSc with this kernel will only run on 64-bit capable computers
- any kernel drivers will need to be compiled on another true 64-bit system (e.g. Slacko64) (confirmed with a build of ndiswrapper)
- compiling other apps may have to be done a true 32-bit system (not yet confirmed or disproved)

however alternative 32-bit kernels from earlier series (e.g. 4.4 and 4.9) will continue to be available if needed.

Anyway - if adventurous and interested please test and report any problems - thanks.

(the kernel has overlayfs support and works with gyro's init experiments to use overlayfs instead of aufs)

(it's also a bit smaller than the 32-bit builds Smile )

PostPosted: Wed 02 Aug 2017, 07:17    Post subject: LxPupSc-17.08.1T-k64  

LxPupSc-17.08.1T-k64 is a 32-bit woof-ce 'testing' branch build with a 64-bit kernel (therefore only compatible with 64-bit capable processors)

LxPupSc-17.08.1T-k64.iso {devx} - (devx does not include kernel sources or headers) {kernel 4.12.4-lxpup64 sources}
iso md5 = bf1a3087a0df7512923ccb622ecbe9ef

Delta from 17.07.1T is available

- kernel 4.12.4 64-bit (alternative 32-bit kernels 3.16.x 4.4.x & 4.9.x also available)
- Made from Slackware-14.2/current as of Fri Jul 28 20:29:47 UTC 2017
- BUILD_FROM_WOOF='testing;6e9bb39;2017-07-31 17:43:50 +0800'
- web browser in adrv is light-48.0
- firmware is in fdrv (updated)
- 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 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 31-jul-2017 with their md5sums are:

chromium-60.0.3112.78+pepper_26.0.0.137 :f527358a0d1ed00e31df173ac661f8e7
firefox-52.2.1esr :fb09f55f7de467f1e824768873bbb04b
palemoon-27.4.0 :69cc35db6b0ecf4c7f71f06da1f50e84
seamonkey-2.48 :05b91afef8b60bda21343a45da0aae49

Delta downloaded, applied, md5sum of generated iso correct. At this point I've already run the combo on my entire stable of intel machines. Since that the oldest, a core duo laptop, and the newest, a 3rd gen i5 laptop, have gone across the street to live so I'm down to core 2 duo laptops, Bay Trail desktops, and 2nd gen i5 laptops. Just updated one S761 i5 laptop with no hitches seen. glxgears FPS great at 9600, quickchecked datacd, audiocd, and dvd handling, all ok, sdcard reader ok, brightness buttons ok.

Delta downloaded & applied to 17.08.1 iso. md5sum of 17.08.21 iso generated correct. 17.08.1 install referenced 2 posts up updated to 17.08.21 with no problems. Video (great glxgears FPS at 10,500), sound, PWF connection, DVD and CD detection & autoplay, suspends, Fujitsu S761 SD card reader & brightness buttons all perfect. Now running Slimjet 15.0.4.0 (OscarTalks i686 SFS) with absolutely no problems noted. Looks good, more computers later...

Thanks,
