Hello PipzDex!

glad it is working well and passing that information on. I am using it myself on a Bionic64-v8 system.

First, thank you for this!!

Is this providing anything new, other than support for very new hardware?
Fixing any kernel bugs, maybe?
Providing some new feature?

What is reason for net.ifnames=0?

what it does is ensures that the network devices are counted starting with eth0 and wlan0.....instead of on Bionic where the ethernet device could be named much differently. I use it for testing so I know my Ethernet name and don't need to look it up. It is very optional and most people don't need to use it.

@ rockedge:-

Do I take it the 'kernel-modules-sfs' is in fact the 'z_drv'? Just want clarification on this point, please..... Smile

Yes. You rename it to zdrv_NAME-OF-PUPPYVERSION-NUMBER.sfs, consistent with the name of the zdrv.sfs being replaced; for example zdrv_xenialpup_7.5.sfs.

The real question is "Why isn't it produced with the name zdrv.sfs-kernel_version_number"? kernel_version_number being consistent with that shown by the vmlinuz of the package.

it would be great if this was an option in the kernel-kit but for use with other distros like WeeDog (firstrib) it keeps it self explantory what it is...I could see an option switch in the kernel-kit allowing an auto-renaming to fit the Puppy Linux scheme

the change_kernel tool names it for you otherwise

@ rockedge:-

Installed into UPupBB 32-bit. Running very smoothly so far.

One very tiny 'glitch' (?) I've noticed, towards the end of the BIOS stuff; immediately before Bionic boots, there's a new line mentioned, which I've not seen before:-

'No IRQ handler for vector (irq-1)'.

Don't have a clue what it means, though there's no degradation in performance. Just thought I'd better mention it, that's all.

Thanks! Very Happy

(Edit:- Apparently, it is kernel-related, but the general consensus of opinion seems to be that it doesn't affect overall functionality, and is nothing to be concerned about.....if this DuckDuckGo search page is anything to go by:-

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=No+IRQ+handler+for+vector+(irq-1)&t=h_&ia=web (Have to copy'n'paste that one; the forum software doesn't like the URL, I'm afraid.)

One guy on a Manjaro thread refers to it as a 'watchdog function'... (??!?)

Heaven above knows.)

Thank you rockedge for the 32 bit 5.0.1 kernel . It's the first time a 32 bit Pup works quite well on my NUC . I have both network and sound recognized and working on BionicPup 32 .
Pmcputemp doesn't find the temp sensors and also , I can not see them in Hardinfo . Good to see that PupSysInfo got them though .
Booted from a USB partition using Grub4Dos . I just used the main files and pfix=ram on the kernel line .

@ Gobbi:-

I don't think that's kernel-related; it's more to do with the way pmcputemp is coded.

Have a look at ozsouth's 're-worked' 0.63a packages for this:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1008276#1008276

.....and the following post. AMDs don't seem to be as 'vulnerable' to this quirk as Intels do. But those should, I think, fix it for you. They did for me when installing Puppy to a mate's old Dell desktop.

Make sure to uninstall pmcputemp first if you installed it yourself.
