@anyone - I'm trying to enable the AMDGPU driver, but it's not working. Xorg log attached. My Graphics Card (Radeon 7770 - Southern Island) is supported but requires some changes.

You might try boot with kernel option
Code:
drm_kms_helper.edid_firmware=edid/1929x1080.bin

or 1280x1024
or 1024x768

Hope this helper will also help you Wink

Thanks for the suggestion, but still not working.

I've become less concerned about this since doing more reading on the topic. The open-source driver combined with newer versions of Mesa now appears just as capable, and is in some cases superior.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=amdgpu-new-1710&num=1

I've tried to compile Mesa 17.1.3 myself, however it's also meant needing to compile dependencies.

PostPosted: Wed 28 Jun 2017, 13:52    Post subject: Translation tool
Subject description: for English also now
 

About language

Fatdog has already several translations to en_GB
(English as it is spoken in Great Britain)
see: /usr/share/locale/en_GB/LC_MESSAGES.

Thus it was time to use our translation tool for English, too.

Note, it is never necessary to translate each msg in en
only the ones which differ from the msg in the sources
and
it is never necessary to translate each msg in en_GB
only the ones which differ from en translation.

Another note, default GNU tools create po files for English
with "translations" 100% identic to original msg.
MoManager does not have this behaviour.
Saves just the necessary minimum
that is when translation is different from original.

As the screeny suggest, developers now can use MoManager
to create the pot file, check all messages by ID,
search for terms, test a pseudo translation...

New momanager should be available via gslapt 24 hours later

PostPosted: Sat 29 Jul 2017, 15:14    Post subject: Mesa 17.2  

As I mention in a previous post above, video hardware acceleration support in Linux has been improving at an increasing pace in recent months. Mesa 17.2 is expected to release mid-August 2017.

Quote:
Mesa 17.2 is coming in as one of the largest updates ever to Mesa 3D, at least in terms of code delta.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Mesa-17.2-Code-Size

In tests, Linux Kernel 4.12 is being used however I cannot establish if it's a requirement to see the benefits of this new version of Mesa.

If there is a planned new build of Fatdog64, I would like to see this area updated. Currently compiling new versions of Mesa appears to require quite a number of other packages be upgraded first.

Subject description: Pmcputemp icon appears in tray at boot, but disappears later.
 

I have read all the pages of posts in 01micko's thread on the development of Pmcputemp, but have found nothing that relates to this bug. I suspect that thread is "cold" now, as the last post was in June 2016. So have decided to post the problem here.

I am a fan of Fd64 and think it is the greatest! I have been running Fd64-710 for about 3 months now. Previously, 702, 630, 600, etc. My sincere thanks and congratulations to Jamesbond, Kirk, et al. Initially, Pmcputemp behaved perfectly, present in the tray at boot and remaining there until shutdown. But about three weeks ago, it started disappearing from the tray. It always appears at boot, but now it disappears from the tray at irregular intervals. Sometimes a couple of minutes after boot, other times after half an hour, or more. I can get it back by going to: >usr>bin> and clicking on pmcputemp. It then reappears in the tray, but soon disappears again. I have used Gslapt to uninstall, then reinstall the app., but no change, the problem persists.

I updated the google-chrome browser recently and if my memory serves me correctly, this problem emerged soon after. So that event could possibly have something to do with this change of behaviour.

I realize that this is a minor issue, but if anyone has experienced this same problem, or can otherwise give advice, I will welcome their kind assistance.

@Yoliano I also had trouble running the pmcputemp.sh script in /etc/xdg/Startup.
Try placing a symlink in /etc/xdg/Startup pointing at the /usr/bin/pmcputemp binary. It works here without problems on Fatdog64-710.

Hi "Smokey", thanks for your quick response. Haven't had time yet to test your suggestion. As soon as I have done so, I will post the results for you.

Hasta pronto!

@smokey01

Tried your temperature app hack, and got it to come up and display a temperature. The number even changed, but afterward the monitor disappeared. No idea what is going on.
BTW: I hid the pmcputemp shell script in a subdirectory, in case that was causing the crash, and just used the link to the binary. Nope.

How very odd. I know at least one other person that's symlinking to the binary and it's working. It is working on my other machine as well. The other machine is Intel and this one is AMD.

PostPosted: Mon 07 Aug 2017, 06:56    Post subject: Problem with compile packages  

hi
I'am using fatdog as my every day distro about a year.
but recently , (as I learn more about Linux) I'm facing with problems with compile and MAKE packages.

for example , to install vim plugins, sometimes need compile them , but always I have some dependency missings in process of make.
also to install Emacs , same thing occurred . (and many other packages that is not in fatdog Repositories)
I have tried to get missing dependencies from anywhere (even slackware 14.2 Repositories) . but at the end, near always some conflicts or other problems occurred.

{ I am try use debian , its repositories have all dependencies , seems everything work, but I don't like migration to another distro because of some problems . until today, fatdog is far more than everything I need in pc and I don't like to loose it)

is I do something wrong?
is fatdog core is limit and not for compiling?
or even all because of slackware core?

thank you Wink

Hi borzeh,
There are plugin managers for Vim. Pathogen and Vundle are probably the two most widely used. What plugin do you need?

Hi and thank you very much for your reply

some plugins like (vimproc)
i see many plugins need compile just like vimproc.

To install vimproc
Code:

vimproc uses a pathogen compatible structure, so it can be managed with pathogen, however you must remember to compile after cloning the repo.

git clone https://github.com/Shougo/vimproc.vim.git ~/.vim/bundle/vimproc.vim
cd ~/.vim/bundle/vimproc.vim
make



-----

also my problem not exactly for editors and their plugins, but, trying to compile or install every package that is not in fatdog repositories.

Is it true that minimal distros like fatdog isnt good options to Compile packages?

vimproc installed for me. Do you have the fd64-devx-710.sfs loaded? That is if you are using Fatdog64-710, if you are using an older version of Fatdog load the devx.sfs for that version. It has all the files for compiling.
