PostPosted: Wed 28 Nov 2007, 19:05    Post subject: rxvt terminal running # probepart shows everything detected
Subject description: All USB files (drives, etc.) are detected, but not by alpha 2 Pmount
 

Dear Mr. BarryK,

You asked me to do the following: "Can you please open a rxvt terminal and run: # probepart ... let me know if that correctly detects everything."

I have done as you suggested and can report that yes, everything is detected by the Puppy alpha 2 OS and reported as such by probepart, including all the USB files (drives, etc.), but Pmount does not detect or mount any of the USB files (drives). Not in Puppy 3.01 Pmount and not in alpha 1 or alpha 2.

I have done this same rxvt terminal running probepart in Puppy 3.01, and yes, probepart reports that the OS recognizes all of the USB files, which Puppy MUT will mount all the time, but which Pmount will not mount all the time, or mount at all, depending. Depending on what is the obvious question that I cannot answer, unfortunately.

I hope this helps.

Hail Puppy!

Raman

In a Compaq PC with SATA (and firewire), that is easy to check. SATA drives are visible as sdaX, but as soon as you plug in a USB drive and refresh pmount, the SATA drives disappear (from the pmount window, that is).

Subject description: save file
 

Barry
thanks for that,
The fact that you have a 'contacts' desktop icon means that you have upgraded an existing pup_save file, which is expressly warned against in the release announcement on my blog. This early alpha is not ready for that, and your pup_save file is stuffed up.
Please read the instructions first.

I will do so and try again
Jim

When I ran ddcprobe from a console of Puppy Dingo 392 (on a multisession DVD+RW) the display instantly went black and the computer locked up. The power had to be turned off before it would restart. So as an experiment I ran ddcprobe from the console of a 3.01 multisession DVD. The screen went black for a second but then came back, and the console showed the results of ddcprobe.

Looking forward to the Xorg driver (as an add on)
At the moment the highest res that xvesa can manage on my present hardware is 800x600
The new lemon theme (default) is the best and most usable (readable on TFT at 800x500) of the ones provided. Maybe variants of that can be provided by those able to design themes? The others are of very poor quality with cramped or blurry font display on my hardware . . .

Just a question of altering colours in a text file . . .
Very Happy

MUT is a Tcl/Tk application and cannot be in Dingo. Whatever is wrong with Pmount can and will (most likely) be fixed.

Good.
Can you please post the result of running 'probepart', so I can see if there is anything strange about it. (Just drag to highlight the text, click middle mouse button to past selection)

Again, same test I gave to Raman, can you run 'probepart' and report that the partitions are all shown properly or not.

So does ddcprobe work fine without X running? -- is this a conflict between a running X and the ddcprobe on your video hardware?

Subject description: seems fault free
 

Barry
Decided to try installation to hard disk using a pentium 4 with 256 mem. Process went smoothly with hard ware detection fault free (not always the case with in this case a purpose built Dell ex bank office computer.)
Hardware detection was accurate, all peripherals up and working .Will endeavour to try cups with more printers
System was stable over extended test.
Positive response from fellow workers to desk top appearance.

Do you intend to have system recover to desktop after unplanned power off without using xwin?
thanks
Jim

Thank you jonyo for the link, but I know how to get there as I follow quite some time here already.

My remark was made to Barry, with the new persons in mind who don't know about the different websites.

But it's up to him to decide what he wants to do.
