Subject description: for netbooks ca. 2008-10
 

In the course of the last week I've had some much needed time thanks to a near-blizzard and a snowstorm to consolidate and update the Slacko5.7 spins for the eeePC et al. There were a few stumbling blocks (one marked solved though not really). And of course once "finished" here's three more updates Razz As always, additional backgrounds in /root/my-applications/MyFiles.

I will be cosolidating the eee-spins to this new thread, with pointers from the recent threads. One can use the link to pick the spin you like.The base Slacko5.7 avoided the pratfalls, but will be done last, with its thread continuing. All initial spins are updated to Mar.10, 2017.

The three spins are;

EONS 2017B iwith new updates to openssl 1.0.2k, pcap, and tcpdump. All of these have been needed. EONS has the enUS version of FreeOfffice 6.97 added to the "mini-eee", with a separate user's manuals. Mp3 and mp4 conversions as below. *** Printing has been restored to EONS. ***

MINI-EEE the cute little pup for surfing and some banking. Youtube conversions to mp3 and or mp4 via avidemeux 2.5.5-s5 and MHWaveEdit.All updates included

EEE2017 the full version with all shares and servers intact from Slacko5.7. All updates included. *** The full eee version now resides with the updated SLacko5.7 located here. ***

Here is the link to the mini- eee and EONS.The md5sums and sha1sums are provided as txt files as noted. Note that the FO-6.97 manuals has its own sums.

enjoy and regards

Many of the older threads concerning these eeePC spins are being locked (no new posts). My appologies for cluttering up the board, but these older threads will fade into the background as newer and better things get released and updated.

There is a bug here, in that I inadvertantly uploaded the suums for the FULL FO697.
The correct sums are INSIDE eons.txt

Putting these spins through their respective paces for their purposes, I have found that the main eee-spin does not print to foomatic (xqx and zjs are already installed) printers such as hp printers. The mini version is designed as a surfing distro, so its not that important. But the EONS and eee versions should have printing capacity. And they don't.

To make a long and twisted Puppy-tale short, it turns out the bad-guy here is...
BASH.

BASH was upgraded as a result of the Shellshock bug in Oct. 2014 to the Slackware recommended 4.2.53. This broke the printing through CUPS/gutenprint. Gutenprint was removed thinking THAT had broken. The reload of it did not go through the remaster process. And thus no print on these spins.

Well, I got around to it, and hunted down the problem. The original Slacko5.7 by 01micko was fully updated via Slackware. There was NO update for BASH in the list this time around. All of these updates went smoothly, with only minor symlink patches. Annnnd, the printer works. Just remove the larger video drivers for the eeePC version, and that is fixed.

So both the main slacko5.7-2017 and the eee-2017 versions are fixed using the original BASH 4.1.0(2). The mini-eee version will stay with the Slackware invoked
4.2.53 BASH, but will not print (tantalizingly close, just a no transmit of data to printer, but CUPS finds and installs it)

That leaves EONS in a quandry, as it is inteended to be full-service in a small footprint. But no printing seems a waste. So I reverted it to BASH 4.1.0 and all is well.

BUT, one must operate behind a firewall at all times, and not use an unsecured wifi connection. Ethernet behind router is acceptable, but wifi is VERY DICEY.

Although this is a rather focused thread, your thoughts on this stuff is appreciated.

Regards
8Geee

I noticed your new signature says Slacko57-ff23. Did you find an annoyance with Firefox 27 and revert back to 23? Just curious.

PostPosted: Wed 15 Mar 2017, 20:05    Post subject: Printing fixed in EONS version  

As the subject indicates, BASH was reverted to allow EONS to function with printers.
The first post in the thread is now updated with mini-eee and EONS downloads.

The full eeePC version is now coupled with the updated version of Slacko5.7

There is an update to rxvt in the Slackware updates.
This can be ignored as Slacko5.7 is using Urxvt (unicode-rxvt).
All that is presently installed is a symlink from rxvt to urxvt, and thats all that is needed.

PostPosted: Mon 15 May 2017, 14:20    Post subject: EeePC 1018P  

Please excuse: I don't know exactly where to ask about this.

Yesterday I got an EeePC 1018P, and have put tahr 6.0.6 on it.

Could someone please advise as to whether that OS, or something else, would be good to use?

Please tell me what additional info I should supply.
At the moment, I can think of 250GB spinning disk, 2GB memory, 1.66GHz Atom N455 CPU.

Thank you,
Sheldon

Have you tried any one of my spins (Slacko5.7 type) on that netbook?

No, 8Geee, but I will now. I'm on my regular computer, and will try to use the netbook to get your mini-eee. I'll report back soon, I hope.

I was quite upset to find that the EeePC was very slow on the Internet.
I don't know why it's so slow.

It had some Ubuntu and WIndow 7 starter version when I got it, and I stupidly made it useless while trying to shrink partitions.
So I wiped the drive, and put on Tiny7 Windows and Puppy.

I don't recall whether it was slow before I messed it up.

--------------------------
UPDATE: I downloaded
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 140414976 May 21 17:07 /mnt/sda5/mini57-17b.iso
and now have

# ls -l /mnt/sda3/mini-eee/
total 136864
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1925689 Mar 12 17:20 initrd.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 134955040 Mar 12 17:20 puppy_slacko_5.7.sfs
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3109728 Mar 12 17:20 vmlinuz

Booted to desktop; kind-of slow at depmod?

Am in the ff27 now. It took a long time to appear, after I clicked the icon.
