Glad you like!

Cool about the guitar pedal too Smile , I had problems with it in Mandriva and earlier puppies, didn't try it with Slackware. This way though is just so easy.. Without tweaking anything, just setting basic params in Audacity, I got a smooth sound with no audible latency while recording. That may differ when I record with play-thru (over another track, playing whilst recording Wink ), but I'm hoping not. I know what I'll be doing over the coming weekend! I'm also hoping this little usb audio card that I have works too, it's grat for vox and live drums! Ohoh, Slaxer_Studio_Pup! Laughing

Can you post a higher res logo, if you have one, else I can fiddle with this one.

Cheers.

Mick

I finally compiled the nvida drivers and sent you a PM

Thanks Joe, I installed the two pet files you made for me, closed X to the prompt then ran
# nvidia-xconfig
# xwin
and got the nvidia driver with the correct 1680x1050 resolution on my panel Razz

In a teminal, I ran
# nvidia-settings
and got the Nvidia configuration menu showing the display details.

I've attached a screenshot with the Nvidia menu.

Nice work Joe Cool

excellent news Very Happy



nvidia -180.29 series for the 2.6.27.7 kernel


here are the nvidia pets if someone else needs them
follow the easy install instructions in the above post by pakt

install this first the kernel module
http://puppylinux.asia/tpp/big_bass/Slackware_Packages/nvidia-kernel-180.29_2.6.27.7-i486-1_SBo.pet

then this the binary driver
http://puppylinux.asia/tpp/big_bass/Slackware_Packages/nvidia-driver-180.29-i586-1_SBo.pet

back up plan just in case
make sure you save your xorg config first if something goes wrong *

Its clear so lets use it

Hej Joe,

Just a couple of questions.

- Does SlaxerPup have the 'huge.s' or the 'hugesmp.s' kernel? (I'm just curious Wink)

- Did you ever get SlaxerPup to boot from a USB stick?

Paul

Hi Paul,

I'm guessing it's the "hugesmp.s" kernel... smp support Wink

Hope that helps. Smile

Cheers.

using a SMP multi core kernel
thats the slackware default
as far as hardware detection goes ATM
I also added all the nvidia drivers

about the USB I will have another look at that today in the init

I have a frugal install to hard drive and a full install

but the USB is detected while booting
but what's not happening is the puppy detection of the sfs
and save file during boot up

the installer is writing to the the USB correctly

I found a better way to use the USB so that memory dosent
get filled up so I havent tried USB since then

but I still need to sort out why the sfs using USB isnt detected on boot up if you need to boot USB I'll work on it

Joe

I like Slaxer and have experimented with it off and on since you released it. However, I never could get Firefox to pass my three tests: javascript, full screen flash and smooth scrolling.
Now with the GTK core update and your nvidia drivers, I can finally pass all three tests. Yay for you!!! Nice work!!!!

How could I reduce or turn off some or all of the scrolling text messages at boot? I imagine you turned them on for debugging?

At the boot prompt you can add 'loglevel=1' to reduce text messages to minimum.

Hey Joe

I got SlaxerPup to boot from USB Razz

SlaxerPup has the USB driver modules in the kernel. Apparently there is a slight difference in how fast they run compared to separate modules - the built-in modules are a little slower* and don't find the USB drive before a search is made for the Puppy files.

EDIT: *No, probably the USB detection speed has changed because of the different kernel used in SlaxerPup.

I've added a 'sleep 3' in init and it now works. I tried different delays and 3 seconds was the the minimum delay that would work on my slowest PC, the eBox-2300 with its 200MHz Pentium-class CPU.

I've attached the modified initrd.gz. Just replace the initrd.gz on the USB stick with this one and it should boot now Cool
