I have noticed a strange problem with Xenialpup.
Immediately after a boot some applications take a long..... time to display, and the mouse seems frozen. Sometimes after they eventually appear, it's a blank window, but the buttons appear if you move the mouse over them.
I tried changing kernels to the Tahrpup 6.0.5 one that works fine, but this made no difference.

Looking at "dmesg", I find it ends with the following:
Code:
[drm] GPU HANG: ecode 7:0:0xbbaff7f8, in Xorg [6664], reason: Ring hung, action: reset
[drm:i915_set_reset_status [i915]] *ERROR* gpu hanging too fast, banning!
drm/i915: Resetting chip after gpu hang
On googling the error message I found the suggestion that with my hardware, the intel i915 video driver may need to use "UXA" acceleration method rather than "SNA", the default.

I also found the following suggestion as to how to do this.
Create an empty text file as "/etc/x11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf".
Edit this empty file and add the following content:
Code:
Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
   Driver      "intel"
   Option      "AccelMethod"  "uxa"
EndSection

It worked. Afer a reboot, the problem has gone away.
And no error messages at the end of "dmesg".

Making graphics drivers does not like me Rolling Eyes Twisted Evil Evil or Very Mad

Anyone make any Nvidia drivers for Xenialpup?

I need the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.39 driver.


I downloaded the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.39.run package from Nvidia web site.
I have loaded the devx and kernel sfs, but I keep getting errors when making the driver.

I was doing a backup with xenial 7.0.1, after installing the bugfix, of the main hd sda1 to sdb1:

Code:
cp -a /mnt/sda1/* /mnt/sdb1/


The command ended in error because during copy the sdb1 usb hd changed to sdc1 and then sdd1... I booted racy and:

Code:
cp -a -u /mnt/sda1/*  /mnt/sdb1/


was executed without errors. I think the util-linux has some bugs.

This is awesome.

Only complaint I have is that every time I reboot or restart X, I lose my wifi settings. I have to run Simple Network Setup all over again. (It saves my configuration, but won't load it, so I have to delete it.)

Other than that, it's perfect, thanks. Smile

I have now been trying a HP15-af154sa laptop and VLC works fine. The only problem is lack of support for the Broadcom BCM43142 WiFi card. I have asked about that in this Broadcom Thread.

Incidentally VLC and other stuff is also working perfectly with 32bit Tahrpup.

Hi just wondering when this will become an official puppy. Official means it will replace the tahtpup download option on puppylinux.com website.

Works! Posting from it now. Very Happy Feels smooth and fast. Good work 666philb!

Update: Palemoon started to get really laggy after about 40 minutes and slowed everything down to a crawl (100% CPU usage), not sure why as all I had open was a few Puppy Forum tabs. Right-clicking it and pressing Kill fixed it for now.


palemoon is not the best browser option. i have a version of the official firefox that will run on any os and needs no compiling. and it automatically updates too. i use this in all puppy os. adn make the corect links and .desktop files eetc and it works great. I cant remember where i got the firefox version from origionally sorry. but it works better. i am going to download xenialpup and try it out myself. will let you know who the official updated firefox works

The first thing i notice is that there is no Quickpet installed. quickpet was the place in Tahrpup you would apply the puppy updates, install sfs and other apps and handy things for puppy os. including many generic sfs files directly.

all other things you would get from the ubuntu apps after updating the ubuntu repositories. most things would run.

just missing quickpet.

same problems with Palemoon, but Palemoon is not guilty. The kernel is.
Let the mechanics check for it.
Install an older kernel solves the problems. Perhaps we should buy a new computer

Perhaps you should get a new attitude.

HiDeHo,

This is still Beta quality and is in bug fix and testing.

Quickpet is something, I am sure, will be in the finished final release version.

The finished, final release version of Xenialpup, is the one that needs to be shown on Distrowatch.
Not ready for that yet!

I have run a portable version of firefox i got from the firefox website.
1. get the 32 or 64 bit firefox for your language hereFirefox download
2. extract it to a file on the puppytlinux hdd/flash drive called firefox.
3. click the firefox exectuable in it and it will run on your puppy.

you will need to make a .desktop file for this so it will show in the puppy menu. i just took the existing one for palemoon and changed it to point to the firefox file and such. you will also need to get a firefox icon and point to that too.
