Subject description: for netbooks ca. 2008-10
 

eons2018.iso with BASH fixed for printing (yaaaay). EONS has an enUS version of FreeOfffice 6.97 with a separate user's manuals. Mp3 and mp4 conversions and editing are available. The current iso size is 149.5Mb, using about 445Mb in RAM.

Only the i915/945 video drivers are included in this spin, and the distro is 32-bit nonPAE. The kernel supplied is 3.4.82 (no longer suported).

MINI-EEE has been deprocated, just remove the office from /opt and the hidden /root/.softmaker files. Then right-click the two desktop icons to remove them.

Here is the link to eons-2018

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.

Regards

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.

PostPosted: Thu 20 Jul 2017, 17:16    Post subject: expat update  

A reminder that slackware has published an update to expat (XML parser/handler).
This update needs a symlink in usr/lib. Toss the old 1.6.2 version after installation, then make a symlink from 1.6.4 back to 1.6.2. This symlink fix is necessary.

The usr/doc files may be deleted, and root/.packages needs the new version moved to builtin_packages (the old one can be removed).

Regards
8Geee

PostPosted: Tue 25 Jul 2017, 19:08    Post subject: tcpdump repair  

As of today 25/07/17 there is a bugfix at slackware.
It seems that tcpdump's last patch (4.9.0) has a bug that allows a DoS.
The Patch has been fixed as tcpdump4.9.1.

This problem exists in all 4 of my spins, and needs to be serviced.

Upon D/L from Slackware
navigate to usr/sbin and delete tcpdump4.9.0
make a relative link (R-Click on tcpdump4.9.1) and rename the link to tcpdump4.9.0
Click OK (this is all necessary as theres two active tcpdumps)

You may remove the usr/doc files, and MOVE root/.packages/tcpdump4.9.1_files to the "builtin" folder.

Regards
8Geee

@sheldonisaac

Yes, FF27 is slowto start. ABE has to load (About 9.5Mb). Once started, its faster.
DEPMODE occurs during cd/dvd operation only. Once transferred to USB stick, the layered file system is faster. Placing your personal files in /mnt/home will also ease burdens on the system.
