Thanks radky. Now I have a consistent way of triggering the bug. Laughing

An even more amusing way to reproduce this is like so...

Code:
# rox -p=
# rox -p=~/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin
# rox -p ~/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin
# rox -p=~/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin
# rox -p ~/Choices/ROX-Filer/PuppyPin


Last command restores the original... Laughing

So it seems the 'p=' syntax is a bug. I'll fix it in due course.

Thanks for making me think Wink .

Hmm... I don't think that reproduces the same thing exactly, but it's a start. Maybe rox -p= and rox -p are both broken Laughing

Going to try another build with an older 2016 woof-CE branch later (Slacko 6.9.6.4?) and see if that fixes it.

Wifi Issue.
Slacko 6.9.9.9 32bit K4.4.70

The save and using it seems to be at the base of this issue.

I notice when doing a boot up.
The info about loading the different SFS packages, main SFS, adrv, fdrv, zdrv, and the save.

Before the save is loaded a message comes up that it is loading kernel driver modules hid.

I think this is the one it is talking about:
lib/modules/4.4.70/kernel/drivers/hid/i2c-hid/i2c-hid.ko

Is this suppose to be happening and if so, is it the correct process just before the save loads?


Wifi issue success, MAYBE, well so far. Laughing
Seems to be working better.

Slacko 6.9.9.9 64bit K4.9.30
Frugal using a save.

It boots and loads the save just after the last sfs package loads.
Nothing is loaded before, like it does in the 32 bit Slacko.

It loads main sfs, adrv, fdrv, zdrv, save.

I never see this:

Could this be causing the save wifi issue in Slacko 32bit???????



With this being a very new computer. I am sure the newer kernel is a help Idea Exclamation

I have also found a github repo by lwfinger (noted linux wireless dev) that replaces (almost) the whole rtl* driver stack! See https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new

Anyone can build it themselves if they load devx and kernel_source from sfs-manager (in setup menu).

Code:
git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new
cd rtlwifi_new
make
make install

I will try this later today.
Got to go do stuff for now!!

Folks, I think bigpup is not only VERY helpful in general, but he is doing a fine job of trying to solve this!

It's pupmode 12, I make a folder, copy the kernel source sfs + devx sfs to it, then mount the iso and copy the contents to the folder, run grub4dos and that's it.
It has a savefile.

This is on the hard drive.

Doing the same thing on an SD card of Flash drive gives pupmode 13 and it doesn't work as well, some packages like kpat and kodi don't install properly with PPM (won't run).

Edit: Another thing unusal about the build is that the 32bit slacko was built from slacko64, when installing it does some sort of fix because of that, don't know if that makes a difference or not.

I found that ppm and packages install better for me in pupmode 13 with this (attached). I didn't try it with kpat or kodi though.

edit: The "ISANEXEC" "file --brief" part in PPM always takes forever for me (not liteally forever but always a very long time, many times in the range of 30-90 minutes, probably 9/10 of the entire time it is doing this, making it way slower than just clicking on sfs files or maybe even pet files). Would it be practical to have an option to disable ppm from doing this? (screenshot attached)

Re: Additional testing of the Rox pinboard bug in recent Woof-CE Pups

1 - With ROX-Filer, click-mount any sfs and choose 'view contents'
2 - Go to Nathan's wallpaper setter to change background
3 - At this point, Rox creates a second pinboard (/root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ROX-Filer/pb_Default)
4 - Clicking the desktop will alternate between the original pinboard and this new pb_Default pinboard
5 - Restarting X is required to reclaim the normal pinboard

EDIT:

Re: Fix for Rox pinboard bug

It seems the Rox pinboard bug in Woof-CE is due to a slight change in /usr/sbin/filemnt as of Nov 20, 2016.

https://github.com/puppylinux-woof-CE/woof-CE/commit/b221275e23f6fe79928fab26920bce4544679ea9

If I understand correctly the -n switch was added to the defaultfilemanager so a mounted file would open in a new window of the file manager.

This works well for PCManFM, in which case the -n switch opens the mounted file in a new window, but in ROX the -n switch opens a new instance of ROX for debugging the filer. The result is a double ROX pinboard.

Removing the -n switch from the following line in /usr/sbin/filemnt fixes the ROX pinboard bug (line 119 in slacko 6.9.9.9):
Code:
  defaultfilemanager -n "$MOUNTPOINT" &

Maybe /usr/sbin/filemnt could be adjusted such that the -n switch is not applied if ROX is running, but is applied if PCManFM is the file manager.

Thanks!

Subject description: Slacko-6999 k-4.4.70 Frugal
 

G'day,

I've just tried to read a fairly full data CD made on a Windows laptop (someone else's, Windows version unknown).
The CD would show as a desktop icon with slacko6999 but would not mount by clicking or with pmount.
Pburn's Disk-info-Tool said it was a blank CD.

Xenial Pup read and copied the files from the CD without problem, as did a Windows7 laptop.

I haven't tried with any earlier slacko but can if it is a problem others can confirm in slacko and not my DVD reader (old Sony model).

I downloaded and installed the 32 bit version to my Eeepc 901a. I have been trying to break it. I omitted the Adrv and installled Chromium 59 from the forum.

If using the 'Disc info' from the Tools menu in pBurn, there are 2 things that could fail when checking a CD. - Either cdrecord or mount. Please try these commands to see which one is making trouble:
Code:
cdrecord dev=/dev/cdrom -toc
Code:
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom -t auto
ls /mnt/cdrom

I did a new install to a 32gb SDHC card, installed fix_pupmode13.pet,
kpat and kodi installed and work fine.
I may be mistaken but I don't think they would have installed without
the pet.

# PUPMODE=13

# DEV1FS='ext4'

Sigh. I've had another episode in which the WiFi failed for no reason I can blame on the external network. (This is still with 32-bit Slacko 6.9.9.9 with the fix for dhcpd running on that beat-up D600.) I have had successful tests with this configuration both with and without a save file. The fix appears to have changed probabilities rather than eliminating the problem. It is still nondeterministic.

I would like someone with a machine that still has a working hard drive to try this. I'm becoming convinced the problem turns up intermittently when save files are on a USB flash drive. I also find I cannot always boot from a USB drive. This can be corrected by running a diagnostic in ROM which properly initializes the USB subsystem. After that it boot consistently.

When it fails it never uses a preexisting profile which worked on a previous boot. It doesn't even tell me it is "attempting to connect to 'whatevernet' " and that makes me wonder if it is missing the layer from the USB flash drive.

At the moment I don't have a comparable machine where I can test this suspicion without using USB.

I set up a USB install of slacko-6.9.9.9-k3.16-4G-PM-ABI.iso. I used ISObooter with a save folder on a separate ext4 partition. Any other setup is a waste of my time.

I set up PWF using a generic carl9170 adapter with auto-start. PWF uses the /root/Startup folder which sometimes has timing problems with recent Slackos involving the system tray. But that is a side issue and there is a simple work-around.

It worked each time, every time.

With all due respect, if your machine has this kind of basic hardware problem, your test reports cannot carry much weight.
