I thought this error was fixed in 4.1.1. But I just upgraded to 4.1.2 and I'm getting this message when copying FROM root TO a mounted drive.

Quote:
'/mnt/home/misc/bookmarks12.8.08.html' already exists - overwrite? Yes
cp: preserving permissions for `/mnt/home/misc/bookmarks12.8.08.html': Operation not permitted
Failed to copy '/root/my-documents/bookmarks12.8.08.html'

Done
There was one error.

In Seamonkey, I am able to open "Preferences" once and when I close and reopen "Preferences" the second time, I am unable to. I must close Seamonkey first to be able to access "Preferences" again.

Also, in Seamonkey, how come the Privacy & Security tab is empty?

PostPosted: Tue 09 Dec 2008, 22:38    Post subject: Xorg works in 4.1.1, not in 4.1.2  

I just got the puppy 4.1.2 (non-retro) ISO from ibiblio, burned it to a CD, and booted from it--until Xorg failed to work, even after I manually gave it exactly the same configuration as I have with 4.1.1 (non-retro), where it works fine. Oddly, the X test on 4.1.2 worked fine too--but after I exited with Ctrl+Alt+Backspace and entered "xwin," I got the message saying "This script will run X Windows for you," but it didn't. All I got was the prompt again.Does anybody know what the problem might be? Xorg has always worked for me before, even on Puppy 1.0.7 (or whatever my 1.x version was) back in 2005. I'm now back to 4.1.1, and Xorg is behaving itself as it always has before.

I cannot duplicate your seamonkey bug - works fine for me

As for cp failing can you post the code you typed that is failing?

Video - try copying your xorg.conf from 4.1.1 to 4.1.2

Can you try the bug I posted before the Seamonkey one? Try mounting something and copying files onto it.

exProphecy, the 'copy bug' has been around since at least 4.1. The file(s) seem always to be correctly copied or moved even though Puppy reports that they weren't, so I haven't reported it.

Oh yea I noticed they were copied correctly but how come it says the message? It's more of a little nuisance than a real problem. Is there a way to fix it?

Also, it seems to not appear for me in 4.1.1. It appears for me in 4.1 and 4.1.2.

1.)
I clicked on several small *.pet files in rox.
They all installed, but jwm crashed at next restart.
After replaced the .jwmrc, jwm worked.
What happend? My guess would be that:
- All parallel petget processes calls for the fixmenus script.
- If unlucky (as me) some of processes called the fixmenus script NEARLY at the same time.
- The fixmenus scripts write a fresh .jwmrc, and if there are 2 (or more) writers, they would easy corrupt the strictly format in .jwmrc.

2.)
Petget still fails when trying to install a *.pet from a directory with spaces in directory-name.
I have reported this several times for the latest releases, so I guess it is not considered as a bug. Smile

In the Xvesa video wizard, for every resolution listed, there is 1 resolution for 16 bit color and two listed for 24 bit color.

I'm guessing this bug goes back a ways.

Puppy 4.1.2 RETRO.

Tried to do a hard drive full install. Universal installer refused, because it says Puppy 301 is installed on the chosen partition, and the partition is mounted and cannot be unmounted.

Puppy 301 was there, a long time ago, but the partition has been deleted by gparted, written all zeroes by Killdisk, new partion created and formatted. All this twice.

Rox shows an empty partition, Pmount and gparted both show the partition unmounted. Grub exists somewhere (MBR?), with a menu in a Debian partition. If I boot Debian, the Grub menu only shows Debian.

4.1.2 does not see the Broadcomm wireless card. 4.1.1 does detect it and loads the b43 module. HP Pavillion zv6000 that has had the wireless card work with versions 3.X.

This is from Barry at http://puppylinux.com/download/release-4.1.2.htm,
note the bit about copying to vfat filesystems. I have gotten into the
habit of putting a partition with ext2 or ext3 on my usbsticks to
get around such trouble. Windows using friends might find it a bit antisocial but it works for me.

Version 4.1.1
Heh heh, I'm still "leader" for this bugfix release. There are a few niggly things in 4.1 that I wanted to fix. I strictly avoided any changes from 4.1, only applied bugfixes that were really needed or highly desirable. These fixes include: mouse detection, touchpad tapping, loading extra SFS files, DVB USB firmware, old Network Wizard, GPRS messsage, desktop drive icon renaming, desktop drive icon realigning, check dependencies of installed PET packages, ALSA shutdown, ROX error message when copying from Linux to vfat filesystem, improved support for widescreen resolutions, remaster-CD improved, rxvt terminal pasting, and many network setup fixes especially for wireless (including ndiswrapper). Details on all of these fixes can be found by going to my blog, http://puppylinux.com/blog, and do a search for "(SP1)" in the title
.
