I try Puppy Linux 2.14 Revisited on a Live CD, multisession.

First boot, all went OK. Nice load, and set-up of network and xorg went Ok , withouth problem.

Then save all the stuf to CD, All process OK.

Second boot.
Start normal till reach this point:

Coping /pup_214R.sfs to tmpfs ....mounting on (/initrd)/pup_ro2....done

Mounting 20017-12-01-16-41 on /pup_rw .... failed

That must be a problem with the multisession code... I modified it but it never got tested. I'll have a look into it.



Hi Dougal,

This is just to remember you to not forget this multisession issue. Smile

Do you have and idea for when will release v2 of 2.14R (or another update name) ? I am a little anxius to use this distro Wink

i am curious how well does this version do a "full install" now?


I posted on this thread an updated installer that should get the full install fixed.

Quote:

also, is there .pet support? .pup? anything that needs to be known by someone used to 3.0* or even 2.16+?


Yes.

Quote:

also, there needs to be an updated iso for all the fixes that have happened so far.


Pakt has set the date for the first update to the 15th.

Quote:

one other thing, for future reference, is there a way to "update" each new version of 2.14R from a full install?


We will have "service packs" that can be used instead to apply the changes.


sweet. Around the 15th is about the time i will be able to test out this version so that works out perfect. as for "service packs", excellent idea. i assume these "service packs" will be a .pet with all packages that need updating within it with a script to install each so that the package manager will notice the updates?

cant wait to try it Smile

PostPosted: Sat 08 Dec 2007, 21:18    Post subject: Toshiba fix enhancement  

dougal, thanks for including the "dubious Toshiba HW" fix. However, one of the models that uses the MagicGraph video adapter has a screen size of 800x600, but does not indicate that in its ddcprobe output. (The larger-screen models appear to also support 800x600 but omit the "timing:" statement.)

In one of my early versions of the fix I added a line to append a "timing: 800x600..." statement to the ddcprobe.txt file, but only if one was not already present. That was because the Trident adapters do include that line, so no need to duplicate it.

I haven't forgotten, I thought you did...

It would help me if you could get me some more information:
- try booting with "pfix=debug" and see what kind of messages you get before it stops.
- maybe try mounting that cd and see what's on it -- maybe the saved foler has a bad name.

Ok, I'll add that.

I've got here a couple of little updates people might want to test.

- I've updated jwmconfig so it (hopefully) works ok with adding/removing etc. panel buttons. I've also added to it a dialog for modifying the clock format (but I need feedback on the offered formats -- any more suggestions?).

- I've updated the grubconfig script and the installer, so hopefully it would work ok with a frugal install (when grub isn't previously installed).

PostPosted: Mon 10 Dec 2007, 01:15    Post subject: multisession issue  

Hi Dougal,

I load Pup214R v1.00 with pfix=debug command.
The following message come:
"Could not find kernel image for pfix=debug"

After that, the normal installations messages comes,
and the installations stop after the message.

mounting 2007-12-10-01-13 on /pup_rw ......... failed

------------------------------
Mounting the CD we can see all the normal files and directorie:
boot.cat
boot.msg
f2
initrd.gz
isolinux.bin
isolinux.config
pup_214.sfs
zdrv_214.sfs
vmlinuz
2007-12-10-01-13 [directory]
inside directory:
sub-directories: dev-etc-lib-root-usr

The only strange thing is on this usr sub-directory:
inside usr I found the file X11R7/bin/X , this X is a red colour filename of a yellow triangle icon with an " ¡ " on it. (meaning missing item ?).

Ok , that was I found till now.

That's odd. I wonder what it means...

That's fine: it's the link created to Xorg when the xorgwizard was run.

I'll look at the init script and see what I can find.

I think that is actually wrong.
The "timing" lines list the modes supported by the screen and in the case of laptops it usually will be only the one, native, mode.
The part of ddcprobe output related to your adapter is the first part of ddcprobe output (that's why when you get only half the output and "edidfail" it means that it couldn't get to your screen).
What I did is make sure that Xmodes (which is normally created by Xvesa -listmodes) has got the 800x600 and 1024x768 modes, thus the user will be offered them, being told "ok with card, maybe NOT ok with screen".

It occured to me that maybe you tried "pfix=debug" and not "puppy pfix=debug" and maybe it has some effect...

If you get it working, look in the output for the line
Code:
PUPMODE=|13|


I think I found the problem and fixed it, but just to make sure...

Shame on me. !!!

You are absolutly right: I forget to put puppy on the sentence puppy pfix=debug

So,
with the puppy pfix=debug command I found:

PUPMODE is :12: [yes , 12 and not 13. I checked 3 times]
Coping /pup_214R.sfs to tmpfs ...done
/mnt/dev_save2007-12-10-01-13 No such file or directory
etc etc.
e2fsch 1.40.2 (12-Jul-2007)
ext2fs_check_if_mount No such file or directory
etc. etc.

Hope this info are good to you.
And sorry again for my mistake.

Oh, now that I think of it, it would actually be 12... So I think we're ok and it's fixed.

I have to say KUDOs to you on the desktop drive/dev icons and the mount/unmount that is part of them. Compared to Pmount and MUT, it just flat flys in mounting a drive or partition.
My question here is:
Will there be a pet of this addition that can be made available to users of other versions of puppy that would like to add it?
I have pup214r installed (full hard drive install) on an OLD Compaq notebook 133mhz, 1.2gig hard dirve, no eth0, no wifi, no CD drive.
But It is running in 32 megs physical ram!
Just thought you would like to know!

Do we actually need both:

Menu > setup > setup wizards > etc

and

Menu > setup> wizard wizard > etc

since the end result is essentially the same?

Also, Menu > system > Xpdq printer management

gets you to the Xpdq gui, but Printer > Add printer does not do anything. It only works if you come via a setup wizard. A bit of a downer if you try this approach first!
