Heads up, DPupBuster lovers!

DO NOT install the Bluefish Editor package from the PPM's Debian repos:
it fouls up Password Administration in Puppy, and you end up with a critical
PAM failure when you recycle X, after installing Bluefish.


You can't get back in and there's this blinking "PAM Failure" message mocking you
at the top left of the black screen.

Luckily I had archived my pupsave about half an hour earlier, and I was able to
counter the problem by unpacking the lzo file I had of my dpupbuster pupsave
from another Pup.

I noticed during PPM install that some blockid stuff was installed as a dependency
for Bluefish. Probably that's the cause of this bug?

I wanted to change editors because I do not like the way Geany has altered the
behavior of its side window: it's more static than it was in the Geany for the Stretch,
and I find it annoying.

I will try cudatext, then.

IHTH. BFN.

Hello, all.

I was looking for a version of MTpaint that had the view capacity, since BPB's
version does not appear to have it. I then realized that the ex-factory MTpaint for
DPupBuster was at v. 3.40. So I got v. 3.49.13 from github and compiled it
for and on DPB.

This is not your usual default unilingual compilation of MTpaint residing under
/usr/local. The attached is the internationalized version of MTpaint residing entirely
under /usr, as per Puppy custom.

Once run, if you go to Help -> About, it will say that it's v. 3.50. Please see
attached capture. Not a disappointment!

To re-assemble the three attached split files, open a console in the directory where
you downloaded them, open a console and type:
Code:
cat xa?-MTpaint-*.pet > MTpaint-3.49.13_2019-03-20_master.pet
Then double-click as usual on file MTpaint-3.49.13_2019-03-20_master.pet to
install it.

Enjoy.

~~~~~~~~~
P.S. -- I guess that dev Mark Tyler has dropped the viewing capacity altogether
in his MTpaint, since v. 3.50 does not react to
Code:
mtpaint -v some.jpg
any more that v. 3.40 does. Oh well.

There's qiv, luckily, that can be interfaced to use MTpaint as image editor.

BFN.

José ?

Which version of grub4dos is DPupBuster using? I looked and could not find
a file named grub4dos, or even a plain "grub" file.

I refreshed the mbr on sda1 with the grub from DPupBuster, and now I cannot
boot older Pups like DPup-4.87, and even Puduan-7 from SailorEnceladus.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
In the case of the older Pups, the Puppy looks on all partitions before telling
me something like "pup system files not found".
-- Could it be that I have too many partitions and I have to unmount some?

In the case of the Puduan-7, grub or the Puppy said it could not recognize
the type of compression of its initrd.gz.
-- This message is very puzzling, because I think the compression for initrd
is standard, the same across all Linuxes. (Please correct me if I'm wrong.)

However I burned a DVD of Puduan-7 and it boots fine.
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Is there a remedy to this? Booting those Pups from DVD is getting annoying,
specially because with the DVD type of boot, all Puppy system files have to be
at top level on a partition.

Also, this has never happened before with grubs from other Pups.

~~~~~~~~~~~~
Other infos on this subject:
-- In DPupBuster, grub4dosconfig says it's version 1.9.4 when I type
< grub4dosconfig --help >.

-- The latest Grub on the Grub web site is version 0.4.6a-2019-02-22.

-- When I try to compile it, it tells me:
Quote:
"checking for objcopy... objcopy
checking if C symbols get an underscore after compilation... no
checking whether objcopy works for absolute addresses... no
configure: error: GRUB requires a working absolute objcopy; upgrade your binutils"
~~~~~~~~~~~

I would very much like to keep the easy access I had to my older Pups.

I have attached my menu.lst file in case it could be the culprit.

Thank you in advance.

Subject description: Regression from changes made in November to rc.network
 

In mid November rerwin made changes to /etc/rc.d/rc.network which cut the connection time for wifi network from around 2 minutes to a few seconds. This fix appears to be lost, not being included in Dpup Buster. Wifi connection has regressed and is now back to around 2 minutes. There is currently no rc.network script, there are 3 scripts (rc.network_basic, rc.network_eth, rc.network_pwf_stop).

Hi Terry_H.

Care to post rerwin's script here, or an URL to it?

TIA.

Hi musherO,

See this post, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=952876#952876. Just above the links to the pets is this:

"The set of current packages that are part of the upgrade:
network_connect_update-20180930
simple_network_setup-2.1
network_wizard-2.0
frisbee-1.4.9 (unless omitted entirely) - from above link
pgprs-2.0.2 (unless omitted entirely) - from above link
quicksetup-20170612 (optional, to use the CRD option - not needed for xenialpup 7.5)"

I think these relate to Terry H's post.

Thanks for that info, mikeslr.

It will be up to josejp2424 to decide to include those scripts in >DPupBuster-7.9.0.2.
Although of course any user can install them if they need them.

BFN.

I no longer have the scripts which were provided to replace rc.network. Once tested, I believe the updated version became the default in woof-ce. All latest puppies, excepting buster establish wifi connection in a timely manner.

As the rc.network script no longer exists as it did when the change was made, I don't know how / whether it could be re-integrated.

I have revisited the slow wifi connection time as mentioned last week. The rc.network script has moved from /etc to /usr/local/simple_network_setup. I copied the script form bionicpup32 8. Wifi connection takes a few seconds.

It appears all the scripts in the above directory were dated Nov/10/2018, so predate the changes applied to WoofCE by rerwin's update.

PostPosted: Tue 30 Apr 2019, 01:14    Post subject: First run- Buster A-2 No Pae
Subject description: A couple of problems
 

G'day,

Set up the March edition of DPup Buster and just a few initial problems on my system:

1) Drive icons - cannot re-space to fit all ~30+ across screen bottom; decreasing the spacing to about 50 and the icons just bunch up/pile up after displaying the first couple. The default spacing of 64 gives two rows across the screen. I've had this drive-icons pile-up in other Pups solved so there is a fix somewhere.

2) CUPS: (screenshot) trying to add a driver for my Epson ink jet but the only driver options are for 'ancient' pin printers. Could not find where to replace these with the ink-jet printer driver.

I'd like a pdf viewer that could also paper-print a pdf (e.g. Evince, which is missing a file) but my first problem is to get my Epson printer working Very Happy .

Otherwise all my apps (loaded as an sfs) are running OK.

Thanks for the Pup.

David S.

Have this booting on my machine would like to see how it goes on others.

Basically the beautiful dpup buster 7.9.0.2 with kernel kernel 3.18.138 it has a basic save file to make it boot this kernel and contains the original kernel files if you wish to roll back to the series 4 kernel. I would like to know how this will boot on other machines. this method is the only one using the remaster process that would keep my changes of the new kernel.

I have trimmed the iso down as a thin version so there is no cups a useful buiding block for old machines that find series 4 kernels to be too demanding.
