Subject description: Can not change Hot Pup settings, solved!
 

I have encountered the same problem as Jcagle (13 April 12:57AM) with Hot Pup. When one attempts to change the settings using the Hot Pup entry under the Desktop settings, it fails and reports that old settings will be used. I tried to disable Hot Pup on a Classmate Dingo Beta frugal installation to save screen area. I was not able to using the Desktop menu entry. I change the permissions on the Hot Pup application to prevent it being executed. Crude, but it worked.

I have also try to change the Hot Pup settings on full installation on my desk computer. I got the same problem. Hot Pup is nice. I think most people do like it. However, it is not clear what is the source of the configuration problem. It appears (to me) that new file is not being written.

Silly me Rolling Eyes After one changes the settings and gets the error message, one just re-starts the x-server and the new settings are used. The problem is the error message is confusing people. If the message stated that one needed to re-start the x-server, this post would not be needed. Thanks again for Hot Pup!

To install seamonkey 1.1.9, it needs libstdc++.so.5.0.7

seamonkey 1.1.9 gets installed in /usr/local/seamonkey
But 1.1.8 is in /usr/lib/seamonkey-1.1.8 ?

Ack! I only just found out where Barry's blog is, and read where some people are having trouble saving sessions. I couldn't tell whether anyone besides me has had a problem with Dingo 4 beta on a multisession DVD.

For me, multisession Dingo 4 beta will save a session when it shuts down, but the next time it boots, SeaMonkey won't open at all. I get this error message:
Quote:
# seamonkey
/usr/lib/seamonkey-1.1.8/seamonkey-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I was wondering what /etc/foomatic is.
I type in shell : foomatic-gswrapper
I got
Code:
ERROR: /undefinedfilename in --.libfile--


Can you add x264 to ffmpeg ? (--enable-libx264)

Subject description: /var/log/Xorg.0.log for blured screen
 

Barry,

Will the simple addition of a driver get my acer m3600 displaying good graphics? Both xvesa and xorg look like there are vertical strips of blur on the screen. Xorg is worse. The /var/log/Xorg.0.log is attached.

BTW After booting the unadjusted live cd the xvesa wizard does not start automatically on my acer but does on my e370. I have no pupsave but with the acer I use pfix=ram boot parameter. The acer starts with 1440x900x16 and I bump it up to 1440x900x24. 301 started in a non-widescreen mode. So some improvement there.

Is there some way to stop the drive icons from appearing on the desktop?

*EDIT corrected above: It was 301 that started in a non-widescreen mode not Alpha7.

PostPosted: Tue 15 Apr 2008, 10:29    Post subject: dotPets in 3.98  

Barry and All: (with reference to my prior posts in this thread)
It appears that I can install just about anything from the repository into 3.01 with few if any problems, but not so for Puppy 4 Beta 1 3.98. OK, I expected some dependency issues, (and got them). I tried two PC's, each with full 3.98 installation OK. I am wondering where the problems are, missing libraries, symlinks or even the installer? I get the dependency list after install, and the menu items appear after restarting JWM, but nothing else.

Here's my laundry list so far:

100% OK on 3.01, but not 3.98(mostly dependencies issues)
xpaint-2.7.0-pet
openoffice_cutdown3-2.2.0.pet
qucs-0.0.13-i486.pet (from my website)
fldigi-1.34-i486.pet
qt-3.3.6.pet
slidedraw-20011026.pet
tkmines-2.15.1.pet
tuxcards-1.2.pet

OK on both:
qt-3.3.8.pet
fltk-1.1.7

Hmmm, with 3.98's shift to gtk2+ and away from the others, I am starting to think of Dingo as a new distro or at least a fork in Puppy Linux. Does anyone think a .sfs could be made to supply the missing libs to Dingo, until transitions to gtk2+ are made? Wink

73's to all

### Missing Reiserfs support files

Puppy has the Reiserfs file system drivers compiled into the kernel.

However, the following Reiserfs support files are missing from all the Puppy-400 test isos:

/sbin/debugreiserfs
/sbin/fsck.reiserfs
/sbin/mkfs.reiserfs
/sbin/mkreiserfs
/sbin/reiserfstune
/sbin/reiserfsck
/sbin/resize_reiserfs

Without these Gparted can neither display the used and unused parameters of Reiserfs file systems nor can it format drives as reiserfs.

### Missing ufs.ko driver; Reading and writing BSD file systems

Several people have requested BSD file system handling on the forum recently.

I myself use the following to access FreeBSD and OpenBSD file systems from using the ufs.ko driver which I restored myself:

mount -t ufs -o ro,ufstype=ufs2 /dev/hdxx /mnt/yyy

mount -t ufs -o ro,ufstype=44bsd /dev/hdxx /mnt/yyy

It would be very useful if the ufs.ko driver could be restored back into Puppy.

At present, the kernel ufs read/write setting is read only:

# CONFIG_UFS_FS_WRITE is not set

Could this be set to:

CONFIG_UFS_FS_WRITE=y

so that we have full ufs read and write access?

### XFS file system driver restored.

Adding the following bare minimum xfs file system support files would allow formatting and checking xfs drives:

/sbin/fsck.xfs
/sbin/mkfs.xfs

### Missing UDF file system driver

Restoring the udf.ko file system driver would give full access to read-only optical media, and optical media that are re-writable. This would be especially useful for DVD media.

Ah! You're back, grndoor. I've been talking about you. You gave a method of booting Puppy from scsi drives on BK's blog some long time ago. It was before he changed his host, his design & co several times, so we don't have access to your words of wisdom any longer. Please can you repeat what you said and place it in the scsi thread started by norte3:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=9377
Many thanks. But we still need one of the experts to help, too.
Glad you raised the BSD issue. There is also the ZFS for Sun systems, notably a new Belenix release today.

You could make a symlink in the 1.1.9 structure which point to that line in the 1.1.8 one.

Ooh! Something I can help with! I know! I know! Pick me!

I'm guessing you probably googled it by now, but foomatic is part of the printer driver mechanism, based on my experience installing my HP printer.

puppy 398 on laptop dell inspiron 1526 bugs:

1)wireless doesn't work. Broadcom BCM 4311 (14e4:4311) wifi needs newer module.
Old deprecated module "bcm43xx" & "ieee80211..." could recognize and scan avalable signals,
but cannot connect WPA or OPEN mod.It should be replaced with"b43" & "mac80211" modules.
( on http://linuxwireless.org/ main page:<b43 and b43legacy Broadcom drivers which replace the older bcm43xx driver. bcm43xx is now deprecated and will be removed in future kernel releases.>),newer module needs newer 4 version firmware too.

ndiswrapper: has problem too, when quering about version, so it is no alternative for using wifi.
# ndiswrapper -v
modinfo: could not find module ndiswrapper
module version is too old!
utils version: '1.9', utils version needed by module: '0'
module details:
modinfo: could not find module ndiswrapper
You may need to upgrade driver and/or utils to latest versions available at
http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net

--------------------------
2) video is ATI Radeon X1270. Xvesa works fine (doen't have 1280x800, resolution but works with 1024x768)
Xorgwizard for Xorg recognize ok the resolution, it offers 2 choiceis: 1280x800 with 16 & 24 colours, properly modify 'xorg.conf' with these resolutions, but when X starts the real resolution is 1024x768 i presume (reported by 'hardinfo')
regardless that xorg.conf says 1280x800)

3) audio controler is: Sigmatel STAC9228Codec.Alsa wizard says it founds these cards:
- hda_intel 00:14.2 class 0403: 1002:4383
- hda_intel 01:0.52 class 0403: 1002:7919
The module "snd_hda_intel" is loaded but sound doesn'working ! (in other distros like ubuntu the same module works)

----------------------------
4) modem is Conexant HDA D330 MDC. it is softmodem wasn't recognized, although there is some driver on dell site:
http://linux.dell.com/wiki/index.php/Tech/Modems, & here: http://linux.dell.com/files/ubuntu/modem-drivers/hsf,
maybe it should be included?
-----------------------------
5)-external monitor, video, and firewire, memory card slot was not tested yet
-Battery aplet is working ok.
-Even it is no paralell port in ilaptop the parport_pc, parport modules were loaded.
touch pad works ok, even in paralell with external usb mouse.The 'wheel' function on touch pad is simulated too (good point), I missed only the simulation of 'finger touch' equal 'left buton press' which works in ubuntu and win. Can it be someway activated too?
-laptop kebboard works ok in paralel with usb keybard, but I couldn't manage to setup altenative language keyboard (I tried to se to romanian ro, with no luck even the control key seems to be working , it turn on/off the led)
I don't remember well, but wasn't created an 'kbd' little aplet for menu bar in the past? It should be included in dingo!
- Cups printing: I have an Brother HL-1430, laser usb printer,for which the www.linuxprinting.org says to use hl1250 ppd file, well I tried it in puppy dingo with the included hl1250 from menu, it comunicates and load the printer with data (printer led are flashing), but no paper no actual printing command comes out. In the past with older puppy I could use the printer but if I remember with an downloaded hl1250.ppd file, it was easy to install because the older "CUPS setup" had an option to load external PPD file not included in puppy.But in this "dingo CUPS setup" that option has dissapaired, so I don't know how to probe rapidly in an easy way with external downloaded PPD file! Why was that option disregarded?
-Omnivision/Creative laptop webcam OV2640 2.0 megpix (05a9:2640) wasn't recognized, it was no "uvcvideo" module from http://linux-uvc.berlios.de included in dingo.
-CD/DVD read-write seems ok
-mounting NTFS file system (created win vista home premium 32) for reading is ok but writing to
NTFS was denied with error message: <Error creating '/mnt/sda2/NewFile': Permission denied>
-scanner wasn't tested because my HP scanner has no linux module developt.

This happens to me all the time with my ATi card which nees the proprietory fglrx driver package installing before doing anything other than 1024x768 whatever xorg.conf says!

You can get a copy of the .pet package at http://files.filefront.com/ATI+fglrx+84pet/;9809066;/fileinfo.html and there's a thread about it at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=316461561&t=23995

Hope this helps.

NOT A BUG
I just wanted to report that universal installer usb stick comboformat option worked for me when I couldn't get the other methods to work. After installing to the stick I reformatted the large empty ext2 partition as fat16 so that I could use it easily on windows. It boots fine though on shut down the only place I was offered to put the save file was on the small boot partition (only 32MB). I haven't tried moving it to the other partition yet.

PostPosted: Wed 16 Apr 2008, 16:05    Post subject: "Overwrite?" Y (a zillion times)  

In Rox, when you copy a massive group of files and folders over a similar group of files, it asks you "overwrite?" for each and every single file that it's overwriting, even if you have "force" and "quiet" turned on. To the user, this means having to hit the Y key while holding down alt sometimes many thousands of times. It's so annoying it's almost funny (to look back on). I'm glad I installed XFCE and Thunar.
