Subject description: pP417 testing
 

___090720-25 pP417std testing___
.. following Flash's lead (somewhat)

1) Burniso2cd of pup4-417-k2.6.30.1.iso to RIDATA 1-4x CD-RW media on DVD-RW IDE1004 unit in P412bone1 (an initial for Xorg, a repeat for Xvesa - both burns 'pinkslipped' by Verify despite proper 4x burn, OK/casebutton-closetray procedure for 1st .. OK did a s/w close of tray on 2nd, just thought I'd try any variation in sequence/procedure to try for a greencard from Verify but sometimes it simply doesn't Neutral ). Both actually good.

2) boot 'Xorg' disc with pfix=ram for a peek ... Xorg is still a *mess* to get past for me on my usual machine (I think I guessed lucky .. Mileage May Vary). Leafpad seems a better choice for simple opener of text or at least in openwith (should I edit readmes?). Perhaps make bookmarks to local html like Roxhelps for Pupbrowser (all the wikientries in the world aren't going to help a conn that ain't) - of course one can always play with the url to navigate. Is freetype in? the fonts might be better (quibblequibble). Actually it's quite good for a final(?) alpha as far as a quick look goes in my limited testing. poweroff/nosave.

3) Xvesa (simpler, quicker re-X)
a) started uP476std,Xvesa - this is a fairly mature liveCD tester set up for my comfort and almost entirely stable. gdm-reported disc-size is approx. 237Mb total with 10 savedirs .. switch disc to the 'Xvesa' pP417 and save current session to this disc on poweroff. long-ish 1st "Burning data from previous CD to first track...", then after red "The media tray appears to be open"etc mssg a shorter 2nd burn & autoeject
b) coldboot, both upgrade savedirs then 417's sfs loaded - upgrade successful

4) Xorg
a&b) pretty much the same shutdown, save to switched disc upgrade procedure but used P421barebones,Xorg as the starting liveCD (gdm-reported disc-size approx. 136Mb total with 7 savedirs)

...5) general impressions of both upgrades
Some minor issues even though both successful. A re-install of leafpad may work best if one prefers it to NicoEdit for a simple textviewer/editor (zedit doesn't get 'broken'). SeaMonkey upgrades to 1116 but Medit stayed at earlier 92 version (seems to be fixed with a simple switch of /usr/bin/medit from a renamed click-mounted copy of the liveCD's pup4-417.sfs on thumbdrive). gpicview gets broken (no loss as I actually like gqview better). mtpaint (depending on original install) may have a lib symlink 'off' .. a re-sym seems to work oki. htop and consoles may behave or display differently from original setups. Puppy Package Manager (petget?.. ah, P417 oem path got changed in the upgrade) wasn't starting from menu or console for me in the P421bb-upgrade (depchecker only shows new installs there, uP476-upgrade shows all). gui for re-X may work once in a dozen tries for me - ctrl+alt+bs is getting to be a habit rather than to even try a button-click. the yaf-splash on left-clicking a mounted-status driveicon (rather than opening a roxfiler window for that drive) is an annoying two-step, imo. Pfind49 (with pfilesearch116) works well Smile

another dumb screenie link, 87k

dotpet compatibility might be iffy (I'm mostly guessing since no pupconn to update PPM and follow the new guidelines for repos & such) for local installs - fresh installs usually work, some even better than previously (like audacious132, as far as I can tell for the simple way I use it). Other simple wms like black and openbox (the newer 3.4.7.2-2 is nice for the menu updating, although I prefer a console fixmenus to the 'quiet' fixmenus from the ob-menu) seem fairly bulletproof. jwm-enhancements help the look (in both since I like the rounded corners, etc and don't use a separate colors file personally)

. . . addenda (htop) . . .
pP417std (out of uP476, upgrade) - htop will not start directly (from menu or wbar), the final -e htop seems to 'flicker' a console window .. works fine from a simple command in an open console
pP417std (out of P421barebones, upgrade) - htop launches as expected

Good news, multisession DVD using Xorriso should be fixed soon. Thomas has located the bug. I'll post an upgrade package when it becomes available.

pup4-417-k2.6.30.1
Frugal install on CF to IDE adapter
Armada 3500
PII 300mhz
320mb
Netgear WG111T usb wireless

Wifi working well again on the Armada, but no joy at all on a Dell 610 with same dongle (no WPA connection). The only thing I can think of is that the slower USB 1.1 port on the Armada helps, but that's just an ill-informed guess.

Main drive (internal CF) is still showing on desktop as a floppy.
Gparted lists it as a floppy drive too.

Medit: don't know if this is a bug, but clicking 'save' on a new document does not prompt for a file name. The document is just saved as 'F%'

'Set global font size' does not work.
/usr/sbin/set-xftdpi should be:
Code:
#!/bin/sh

exec gins /usr/sbin/set-xftdpi.sh /usr/sbin/set-xftdpi.glade

Rebooting Ppup-417 after the first session with a just-made pup4save.2fs, AbiWord no longer starts from the desktop icon as on first run but does start from the terminal, as described by Ray MK; the un-antialised fonts (e.g. Times) do not appear in print, nor in print preview or the generated PDF. The terminal window shows error messages when going to print ("(abiword:21199): Gtk-WARNING **: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated", "** (abiword:21199): WARNING **: could not set the value of Settings.Document.Filter, node not found").

Setting up a printer and actual printing works fine (HP970CXi), will test with other printers.

Aqualung seems really nice, even shows song-related pic beautifully with click-to-enlarge - a pleasant surprise! Surprised

Having trouble with the PPM and also dir2pet. I made a simple pet (see http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=325608#325608)(that pet has been upgraded with one made in 4.1.2, original posted below) and when it came to the stage of the GUI coming up there was an error and the gui didn't show.
Code:
** ERROR **: gtkdialog: Error in line 16, near token '</default>': syntax error

aborting...
cat: /tmp/petspec_db_entry: No such file or directory


The package was created successfully and does work correctly in other puppies.

With the PPM a menu entry is not being created, this bug was also in the 476 PPM. The package must be reinstalled and even that won't work sometimes, even after a full reboot.

Hope this helps Smile

Edit: original pet attached. Will it show any clues?

after saved session to CD-RW, live-cd do not boot
Installed from, and trial to save session to CD-RW :
at end of save I have been asked to place a new CD or to blank the one installed.

It won't boot anymore.
(I tried this 2 times before writing this post - have completely blanked the cd before burning the iso again.)

Puppy built with 2.6.25.16 kernel and lots of modem drivers. Good for older computers and/or if you access Internet via a "winmodem".

lucent /ager modem on TP disconnects for time out .I am sure its not an ISP problem because few minuted later on 2.16 it works just fine.

Subject description: comment about sweep audio editor
 

Hi,
Sweep looks to be very attractive (simple, tiny, ...)
I had a look to the sweep users mailing list and subscribed to it...still awaiting confirmation for posting to it.
Seems to have very poor trafic.
http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=48F92C68.2050204%40free.fr&forum_name=sweep-users
Hop
Hope there is still a pilot in the cockpit...
Cheers
Charlie

EDIT
Yeh...! got subscription confirmation !
and did place a post in swee-users mailing list.
I could then see latest posts dating from january and march 2009.
Will see...

EDIT
about sweep mailing list
it is interesting to read not only the 'users post' but also the 'trackers' ones and attached comments (which in fact are the replies to the post).

Since I don't have any bug to report, how about a praise report ?
Wifi, audio, video all doing fine on AAO netbook strait out of the box. Cool
Need to play around with it longer though.

Hail BARRY ! Good job !

You got me howling at the moon with this one (k-2.6.30.1)

It installed nicely direct over USB key.
Trying a frugal install on my desktop doesn't seem to offer the frugal option choice...

Subject description: Slmodem package slmodem-2.9.11-20090222 candidate for a P 4.3.0 beta
 

While exploring the available modem-driver tarballs, I discovered that "slmodem" has recently been updated. For practice, I built it with puppy 4.1.7-k2.6.25.16 and found that only the slmodemd executable has changed. I built it with the "alsa" parameter and replaced it in the slmodem firmware tarball, which is attached.

It has gained about 300KB. The normal version of slmodemd is slightly smaller than the current version, but I concluded the "alsa" version is needed for our ALSA modems.

I tested it with all three types of SmartLink modems and was able to connect to the internet with each.


Thank you, Barry, for including my Linuxant modem package in the upcoming beta. Note that it also supports DGC USB modems. Testing the SmartLink modems in my PC with an HSF modem in it demonstrated that the HSF takes device major numbers that avoid the fixed numbers used by the SL PCI and USB modems when they are present; the HSF may use their numbers otherwise. If both an HSF and SL PCI modem are installed, the HSF will predominate. But if an HSF (PCI) and a SL USB modem are together, the USB modem is selected for use. Per design, a PupDial "probe-ERASE" and reboot are required whenever the modem configuration is changed, in order to re-detect one of the modems.
