Hello Fishy.

You wish was my command! You can pick up < transmission-2.94 >
-- the latest version as of this writing -- compiled for slacko-6999 at
http://augras.eu/puppy_linux/?dir=musher0/Slacko-700.
(Pls look at the bottom of the list.)

Important: this build might not work on other Pups.

The source code for this v.2.94 can be found on github.

The configuration formula I used is:
Quote:
./configure --enable-static=no --enable-cli -enable-nls --enable-lightweight --enable-daemon --with-gtk --prefix=/usr

Resulting Configuration:
Source code location: .
Compiler: g++
Build libtransmission: yes
* optimized for low-resource systems: yes
* µTP enabled: yes
* crypto library: openssl
Build Command-Line client: yes
Build GTK+ client: yes
* libappindicator for an Ubuntu-style tray: no
Build Daemon: yes
Build Mac client: no

This is a 32-bit version: I hope it'll fit the bill?
I've compiled it on slackster-700, a slacko-6999 derivative, which uses the
same devx for compiling.

Various --
-- This package is multilingual; the international locales have their own
pet archive if you need them.

-- I trimmed the desktop file down to a "version 1.0". The original had
multiple entries that confused my icewm menu. It probably would have
done the same on the menu of the jwm WM, so I took no chances. I have
attached a zip of the original desktop file, should you prefer that one, and
it plays nice with your menu.

-- Execs were stripped with the usual < strip --strip-unneeded >.

-- I've attached a screen capture.

-- If petget refuses to install this version, erase or rename the "index
card" named "transmission" at directory /var/packages/builtin_files, and
retry.

Seems to work fine over here. Keep me posted?

Sorry Norgo,

that link points to the general woof-CE github page, not to a proper CHANGES file.
Can you please provide an exact link? Thanks in advance.

In any case, did you use a proper Pmount in your build?

The one in micko's original build is broken. It does not show the optical drives
properly. I had to replace it with this one (pls find attached), from the xenial-7.0.6.
Unpack in /usr/sbin and make executable to be able to run it.

Will test your build when I have a minute. Sorry, that cannot be now.

@musher0

works as it should, can't detect a malfunction.
Icon at the desktop is present and pmount is showing the device too.
Mounting and unmounting works flawless too.
The only thing I detected is, the bargraph indicator doesn't show the size of medium.

I hope your optical drive is now working again.
So you need not to ask such difficult questions once again. Wink

You guys seem to be having fun!... Wink

I was forced off-line for three full days.

The screen of my portable gave up the ghost last Friday. I had to dust off my old Acer Aspire, and Videotron's cable modem did not like it.

I was lucky I had not thrown away that 11-year old Acer, come to think of it.

Back online half an hour ago. Phew.

TWYL.

PostPosted: Thu 07 Feb 2019, 18:57    Post subject: Lost mouse and keyboard after upgrade  

Hey Puppy Fans!

I have a heavily tweaked to my liking 32bit savefile that made the upgrades over the years from Slacko 5.6>5.7>6.3.2 with minimal effort needed.

But when I upgraded to 6.9.9.9, The keyboard and mouse stopped working.

I eventually figured out to switch over to USB KB/Mouse and unplug and replug them after the desktop appears to get a working Slacko. But I think that will become a hassle after a while.

The kb works fine at the slacko boot screen. So it appears something is biffed in X. I checked xorg.conf but found it to be pretty much empty with the exception of:

Code:
#PuppyHardwareProfile=armsystem


I tried replacing xorg.conf with a working version from a backup before the upgrade. But to my amazement, it gets replaced on the next boot

Any ideas or sugestions?

Best Regards

Overdrive

Sorry, but how do we know you are doing this correctly.
Give details on what you do.

What is Slacko installed on?
If USB flash drive or you have it running in pupmode 13.
Are you sure the replacement xorg.conf is getting saved in the save file?

In slacko 6.9.9.9, I compiled iotop-0.6 using the slackbuild script. The pet can be found at:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/3ci2gevbytjfm13/iotop-0.6-x86_64-1.pet?dl=0
I also bundled the source with a modified version of the slackbuld script
https://www.dropbox.com/s/7g2gx0mvlkfrsxy/iotop-0.6.tar.gz?dl=0

After installing, I get the following when trying to run the script:
Code:

# iotop
Could not run iotop as some of the requirements are not met:
- Linux >= 2.6.20 with
  - I/O accounting support (CONFIG_TASKSTATS, CONFIG_TASK_DELAY_ACCT, CONFIG_TASK_IO_ACCOUNTING

Apparently, these are kernal modules that I need to compile.
https://forum.qnap.com/viewtopic.php?t=27249

666philb has some instructions for doing this at:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=96178&start=1140

I'll give it a try.

Edit:
Code:

iotop can only run under a Linux 2.6.20 or later kernel built with the CONFIG_TASKSTATS, CONFIG_TASK_DELAY_ACCT, CONFIG_TASK_IO_ACCOUNTING and CONFIG_VM_EVENT_COUNTERS build config options on.

https://packages.debian.org/sid/iotop

Not sure if the above gives me any new information.

Edit 2 I round something suggesting that some of these might be boot paramaters:
Code:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="delayacct"

http://blog.brocktice.com/2012/05/23/delayacct-and-iotop-in-ubuntu-10-04-lucid-lynx/

Edit 3

I see there is a kernal config file located at /boot/config-4.9.30.
https://superuser.com/questions/610581/iotop-complains-config-task-delay-acct-not-enabled-in-kernel-only-for-specific
I wonder if I can manually edit this file, or if I have to compile something after macking changes.

Ok, I figured out what had happened.

6.9.9.9 upgrade did not delete these previous version files on my savefile.

/initrd/pup_rw/usr/sbin/xorgwizard and
/initrd/pup_rw/usr/sbin/xorgwizard-automatic

TBH, I don't even know how these files where put there in the first place. But it must have been from a previous upgrade or something.

Anyway, when I discovered these files were there and controlling xorg.conf, I deleted them and that forced the system to use the original 6.9.9.9 versions and everything now works correctly.

Thought I would post this info in case anyone else upgrades and runs into this.

Best Regards

Overdrive

dir2pet is behaving wierd on my system. Once the pet is built I get the following message:
Code:

If you look in libmpfr6-4.0.2-1-x86_64 you will see the new '.specs' file.
And in libmpfr6-4.0.2-1-x86_64/usr/share/applications/ the new '.desktop' file.
Directory libmpfr6-4.0.2-1-x86_64 is now configured correctly as a PET package
and in future you do not need to go through this script again.
You could manually edit the files if required, and create another
.pet package just by doing this:
# tar -c -f libmpfr6-4.0.2-1-x86_64.tar libmpfr6-4.0.2-1-x86_64/
# gzip --best libmpfr6-4.0.2-1-x86_64.tar
# tgz2pet libmpfr6-4.0.2-1-x86_64.tar.gz



However, this adds an extra layer to the folder structure which probably isn't back compatable and it messes up conversion tools in other linux distributions.

To create an archive with the top folder removed one can instead do the following:
Code:

cd libmpfr6-4.0.2-1-x86_64
tar -czvf libmpfr6-4.0.2-1-x86_64.pet `find . -wholename './*'`


The dir2pet code on github seems to have the same problem.
