PostPosted: Fri 11 Aug 2017, 05:27    Post subject: Firefox 55.0.3 for LxPupSc  

I have added firefox-55.0.3-lxsc.sfs to the LxPupSc browsers.....

Have got sound working - needed a sandbox setting (in about:config) added to allow access to alsa -
Code:
defaultPref("security.sandbox.content.write_path_whitelist", "/dev/snd/");

Includes specific to firefox libraries for gtk+3-3.22.19 and apulse-0.1.10

Tested on LxPupSc-17.08.22T - BBC iPlayer and YouTube video playing and file downloads all OK.

Ends up a smaller .sfs than firefox-52.3.0esr - 47MB as against 53MB.

21 updated to 22, then to 23 on the S761 referenced 3 posts up. md5sums all correct, savefile cleaned prior to each update. No hitches or glitches. All the tests run then were repeated and are fine. One of my users has been using 21 for a few days now on a Fujitsu S761 identical to mine. No complaints (once I got the wifi set up correctly Confused ) and the newer CUPS in these pups auto-detects their stinky Canon printer and connects/prints well. I do have a little script that quickly prunes the menu quite a bit for her in lieu of the XFCE Whiskermenu. I haven't yet gotten the older X-slacko or X-tahr to see that Canon yet on wireless laptops cause Canon uses a (to me) squirrely mac address search schema. It prints ok in all from a wired desktop there. Slimjet 15.0.3.0 and 15.0.4.0 from OscarTalks i686 SFS and the inbuilt Sylpheed used throughout.

Thanks,

Updated August 14: The 23 install on the S761 above was updated to the newer 23 with the 4.12.7 kernel. Everything remains solid there. I also moved that install to my NAS box to check it out there, an ethernet connected intel Bay Trail based desktop. In general I have been running X-Slacko 4.2 on my two Bay Trail boxes as it just works. LcPupSc 17.08.23 is also currently running with no problems on that hardware. It is samba sharing a drive partition and an elderly USB connected Epson CX5400 from that box. Peasyscan and iscan on that machine also see both the Epson CX5400 and the networked HP4500 All-In-Ones scanner functions. Runs 24/7 with roughly a 14 watt draw, not too bad for a desktop.

Can you please elaborate on how to do this. I manually installes Firefox-55.0.3 on tahr-6.0.6 32bit. I opened up about:config but did not see a defaultPref setting. Is yours a new setting to be added?

Watchdog has suggested this: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=965839#965839

I did it slightly differently with ff4lxpup.cfg in /usr/lib/firefox
and
local-settings.js in /usr/lib/firefox/defaults/pref

You can see the contents of these files if you download my firefox .sfs

PostPosted: Fri 01 Sep 2017, 17:46    Post subject: LxPupSc-17.09.1T-k64  

LxPupSc-17.09.1T-k64 is a 32-bit woof-ce 'testing' branch build with a 64-bit kernel (therefore only compatible with 64-bit capable processors)

LxPupSc-17.09.1T-k64.iso {devx} - (devx does not include kernel sources or headers) {kernel 4.12.10-lxpup64 sources}
iso md5 = 1bd8cb1af14302e74848d2a7eb3c1ae7

Delta from 17.08.1T is available

- kernel 4.12.10 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-14.2/current as of Wed Aug 30 22:34:34 UTC 2017
- BUILD_FROM_WOOF='testing;528129b;2017-08-30 23:00:49 +0100'
- 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 25-aug-2017 with their md5sums are:

chromium-60.0.3112.113+pepper_26.0.0.151 :25fb3ea8e083304ba32cc9ef2fea3db0
firefox-52.3.0esr :aad35e41e181ce09b89c01760b7fdc57
palemoon-27.4.2 :05fb210ebd4d3eef01d615430d516a69

Don't know - supports laptop suspend on lid closure - that what you mean?
Why not try it and see??

I mean if the lxpupsc kernel can suspend session to disk. It means all the contents of the ram went to the swap partition. And reload it back to ram if the computer is resume. This feature is applicable if the laptop is running out of battery. The suspend that you talked about was only sleep mode

I try acpitool but hibernate does not work

The DOTconfig file says:
# Power management and ACPI options
#
CONFIG_SUSPEND=y
CONFIG_SUSPEND_FREEZER=y
# CONFIG_HIBERNATION is not set

so I guess not....

LxPupSc-17.08.24T-k64 updated to LxPupSc-17.09.1T-k64 on a core 2 duo laptop (Fujitsu S6520) and a 2nd gen i3 laptop (Fujitsu S761). Both are frugal Grub4Dos installs to a fat32 boot partition on SSDs. Used the 17.08.1 to 17.09.1 delta, md5sum of iso generated correct. Ran the usual CD and DVD autoplay tests correctly. glxgears FPS excellent on both, sound, video, wireless connection with SNS and PWF ok, as is yassm 4.1 and redshift. I don't load the adrv as Slimjet 15.1.0.0 from SFS suits me fine at this time. Suspend to RAM is working both from session manager and lid. Haven't done the BayTrail desktop yet.

I do run a modified /etc/acpi/actions/suspend.sh file, kind of a work in progress. It's necessary on the i3 laptop in LxPupSc and on X-slacko 4.3 to get correct touchpad and button mappings on resume. The presuspend cleanup just gets the dialogs to display before suspend when using the session suspend tab in the LxPups and the Openbox case on recovery has worked flawlessly on all my hardware for the last 4 or 5 LxPups. I continue to work on the xfce case to try to get the Xfce4 pups to resume without a restartwm on the i3 so far without sucess. Many combinations of the XFCE4 session startups, xfdesktop.. tried. The only thing so far that works on all of the hardware is a restartwm. I don't use jwm but did do a brief check on slacko 6.9.9.9. I like to have the lidsuspend working on my stable of laptops as it's the carrot that gets the laptop shut after use. The laptop is a lot tougher closed than open. Think kids, coffee, dogs, cats and lots else. Alas, but suspend/recovery seems to remain quite hardware dependent.

The 3.16.x alternative kernel does seem to have hibernation configured if you want to try it....
