I use createsfs - but you have to obtain all the dependencies (which can be pets, debs, txz or other sfs) yourself....

# createsfs - A script to create .sfs files from .pet/.sfs files

# Short Description:

@ watchdog

If you ever get an .sfs made up for this 'fix' I sure would appreciate a copy!

Ahem... I downloaded and printed out the file at the Github link peebee provided above but it was so darn pretty and colorful I hung it out on my flag-pole, didn't know what else to do with it Very Happy

I have built vlc-3.0.7.1_i386_19.04.sfs which I share:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PTyju6P_h1u6KI8tV6HW2E0ze_lqle-W/view?usp=sharing

I used an old trick. Put in /root a file .wgetrc with the following content:

Code:
dir_prefix = /mnt/home/Downloads


and install step by step your package by ppm: the install fails but download the deb packages in that dir. Then I used alien2puppy (a modded version). Delete /root/.wgetrc at the end.

upupdd 19.04 +13 frugal Grub4Dos install on i5 based Fujitsu S761 updated to +14 using the delta. md5sum of generated iso correct, update continues to have clean boot and system checks, good memory/SSD throughput, good video FPS, clean lidsuspend, and overall wonderfully frisky behavior. Mitigation continues unchanged, I haven't had time to go fishing for more current 2nd gen i5 microcode, I'm still early loading the 20190619 code with the following mitigation running the 5.2.10 kernel:

l1tf:Mitigation: PTE Inversion
mds:Mitigation: Clear CPU buffers; SMT vulnerable
meltdown:Mitigation: PTI
spec_store_bypass:Mitigation: Speculative Store Bypass disabled via prctl and seccomp
swapgs barriers and __user pointer sanitization
spectre_v2:Mitigation: Full generic retpoline, IBPB: conditional, IBRS_FW, STIBP: conditional, RSB filling

I have run both the stock kernel and peebees 64b 5.2.10 with good results. Running and posting from +14 with the 5.2.10 kernel now.

Cheers, and Thanks,

PostPosted: Tue 03 Sep 2019, 20:28    Post subject: Samsung Laptop - disappearing cursor
Subject description: after startup but mouse still working "OK"
 

G'day,

I have an odd start-up problem on my Samsung laptop with recent Ubuntu-derived 32-bit Pups (Disco, Bionic) but not with other Pups (Slacko, Buster, etc) nor with these Ubuntu Pups on my desktops.

Bionic/Disco starts up and the expected desktop displays with a cursor, but with or without movement, about 10 seconds later, the cursor disappears or becomes invisible.

Wiggling the mouse and desktop icons are affected by the passage of the now-invisible cursor.

Ctrl-Alt-backspace and then xwin at the prompt and Bionic/Disco restart, with a now permanent and normally working cursor.

How do I stop this odd start-up cursor disappearance in these particular Pups on just my Samsung laptop?

David S.

Sneeky peek..........

Looks like Ubuntu is providing all the necessary 32-bit components to build UPupEE

Hi peebee... wow, you are right on the trigger for new stuff!!!

Quick question about UPupEE-19.10-PR1... What kernel will it be using? I'm getting a kernel panic with this first download so I'm thinking it might be to new for my old hp dual-core and thus probably lots of other older boxes ?

Upup-Eoan/pre-release/upupee-19.10-PR1 downloaded and installed to:
Code:
System:    Host: puppypc25146 Kernel: 4.14.141-lxpup-32-pae i686 bits: 32 Desktop: JWM 2.3.7
           Distro: UPupEE 19.10
Machine:   Device: laptop System: FUJITSU product: LIFEBOOK S761 serial: R1Y00453
           Mobo: FUJITSU model: FJNB225 serial: N/A
           UEFI [Legacy]: FUJITSU // Phoenix v: Version 1.17 date: 03/14/2012
Battery    CMB1: charge: 72.4 Wh 100.0% condition: 72.4/72.4 Wh (100%)
CPU:       Dual core Intel Core i5-2520M (-HT-MCP-) speed/max: 910/3200 MHz
Graphics:  Card: Intel 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller
           Display Server: X.Org 1.20.5 drivers: modesetting (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) Resolution: 1366x768@60.00hz
           OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Sandybridge Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2 version: 3.3 Mesa 19.1.6
Network:   Card: Qualcomm Atheros AR9287 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) driver: ath9k
Drives:    HDD Total Size: NA (-)
Info:      Processes: 148 Uptime: 27 min Memory: 265.3/5894.9MB Client: Shell (bash) inxi: 2.3.40
both as a pristine grub4dos install to the experimental directory on my fat32 boot partition on the SSD, and using a very scrubbed upupdd savefile in that partition.

Both boot and run cleanly with 1% CPU use and 98MB memory use at idle (lxtask numbers). Nothing new seen in Dmesg failures or warnings and video FPS is exceptional.

Early loading of microcode fails with the stock kernel (32b 4.14.141) and mitigation on the 2nd gen i5 is:
Code:
l1tf:Mitigation: PTE Inversion
mds:Vulnerable: Clear CPU buffers attempted, no microcode; SMT vulnerable
meltdown:Vulnerable
spec_store_bypass:Vulnerable
swapgs barriers and __user pointer sanitization
spectre_v2:Mitigation: Full generic retpoline, STIBP: disabled, RSB filling

Memory and SDD throughput is good on this i5 based laptop, matching upupcc, upupdd and LxPupSc and LxPupSc64. Roughly double that in the BB series pups.

Running Sylpheed and SlimJet 23.0.11.0 RUN-AS-SPOT well under the scrubbed and 'updated' upupdd savefile. As usual, all profiles symlinked to my EXT2 data partition. That savefile also has my pcmanfm and trash integration as I have run in upupaa,bb,cc, and dd. Working well so far in this pup also.

So far, no reason not to run it as daily here. If the 32b non-mitigation bothers me I'll toss the current 64b kernel (5.2.14) at it.

Nothing multimedia tried yet other than a simple soundcheck...

Ohya, just did a mid-post lidsuspend. Flawless!

Thanks Exclamation

PostPosted: Sun 15 Sep 2019, 23:55    Post subject: Ermine excellent  

G'day peebee,

A manual frugal of the pre-release Eoan Ermine Pup has no problems with printing & scanning, networking, graphics (Gimp), and other applications running from an sfs of links back to a boot-mounted data partition that holds the full programs.

I guess you'll start a new thread for this Ermine-based Pup once Ermine is released.

Thanks again,

David S.
