Yes, that is an extremely frustrating bug!

It is in the default Seamonkey in Fatdog 112 as well.

For some reason it is not routinely trapped in every Puppy release of Seamonkey.

I will have a look at Pizzagood's fix.

Seamonkey 2.0 is much better on many Web sites than the prior versions but is a little unstable now and then.

With storms now forming in the Atlantic access to this site
[url] http://media.myfoxtampabay.com/myfoxhurricane/[/url]
is really important and only Seamonkey 2.0 can handle it.

PostPosted: Tue 11 Aug 2009, 18:40    Post subject: ppa-422 testing
Subject description: updated
 

base ppa-422 kernel 2.6.29.6 liveCD

___update'090816
('fresh') - Applied pizzagood's shutdown.rc mod to enable a save/nosave dialogue for reboot/poweroff and it seems to work (but not quite as clean as multisession liveCD), some remnants remain in .2fs of pet installs/uninstalls (often with these, there are extra files and scripts in / dir). PPM doesn't seem to be entirely reliable for uninstalls (on either stick-fresh or multisession-upgrade), sometimes it simply deletes the *.files summary in .packages (so I generally save a copy externally for if a manual re-do is needed). Advantages (and disadvantages) to either method of saving sessions - the squash-incompatibility (clickmount/unmount fails, etc) seems more awkward to recover from on multisession (haven't tried the middle-way kernel yet). Likely will skip over the reloaded (pbr?) for ppa-422.. Trio's jwmthememaker works nicely.
endupdate______

liveCD multisession (upgrade of uP476 to P417 to ppa422)
.. is a bit problematical but seems to have mostly sorted over seven savedirs - Laughing the defaulttexteditor script seems to be a blank file now (which is oki as I generally like to choose editor by intent and Zedit opens when I don't care) .. pictureviewer, meh (imo) .. 'aftermarket/unofficial' jwm2-enhancements work well .. wm-compatibility the same as P417 (AfterStep, Blackbox, Openbox and Jwm-beta) .. htop still needs start from console (just a flicker on menu/wbar launch) but urxvt options display as expected on the upgrade.

liveCD (boot) and ppasave.2fs ('fresh')
.. actually seems easier to get things working properly with fresh installs rather than trying to troubleshoot the upgrade. Some fun with Kernel panic until I found that somehow (and yes, I deliberately entered *NO* when prompted to copy ppa-422.sfs to the zip100 .. Laughing not hardly any room for a savefile if that happened, eh?) a severely truncated (8192k) ppa-422.sfs was actually made (one would imagine a sanity check or something would have made that a non-issue, but stuff happens) ... so, possibly zip100 is not a good media choice for this pup (np, just not as expected having the unasked-for truncated copy messing with). Booted fine after I figured the issue out on the multisession-upgrade and copied the full sfs and 2fs to a thumbdrive. Htop starts fine from menu or wbar .. some oddnesses with urxvt and the -tr, shade and fade options (starts fully -tr including window decor with just -fg visible, rollup/down the window and it shifts the bg to I think the jwm active border color).

a few scattered observations/imo on the base
(a peek in pfix=ram mode) .. now I recall many of the simple things that are still not-so-good-imo (call it beta and get some fresh testers - a *simple* text viewer-and-or-'editor', please .. that script in /usr/bin is still not leafpad) .. medit is good, but smallish fonts suffer Neutral .. yah, it's a balance, but the menu looks better (if there's a lot of stuff in the 2nd tier, 16 still gives visual cues in compact form) .. pcd works fine, freememapp lifts off when jwm reloaded, pmount works but still? seems to have some issues with tabnames in that mode (mixed up optical/floppy/usb?) and the annoying yaf 2-step for driveicon-Roxwindow after the 1st easy .. plus it fails to eject CD on reboot/poweroff Sad so the system-halt instead of full-down poweroff is actually a good thing Smile

hmmz, seems Barry is on top of the clickmount (sfs or 2fs) umount=fail thing on his blog (see squash & loop stuff) .. oya, a 1st try upgrade of P412bone1 (retro kernel 2.6.21.7) to ppa-422 pretty much failed - some stuff oki but a lot more wrong than right even though it actually booted and displayed (xfburn scrub that disc)

Did you install dbus and dbusglib ? first and then Firefox?
That usually helps the stability, also was it a pet, or did you install it by yourself?

I'm npt using 4.3 right now, too busy on 2.14X&Dpup Smile buttt
Usually for ff3.5 series I extract the compiled mozilla release in /lib/firefox
forget about using /usr/lib/firefox
/lib/firefox works better it doesn't get paths crossed with seamonkey Smile I figured that one out 4 months back,lol slow learner, lol
anyhoot basically once thats extracted in /lib/firefox and you have have dbus and dbusglib installed then open the ff folder and highlite all the .so files in lib/firefox and system-link them in /lib should be about 15 or so.
then click on the firefox script and it should start right up.

I'm trying the full on compile Smile (the source is 45 meg.. but you can compile seamonkey, thunderbird, xulrunner, firefox) . Certainly a learning curve involved, I hope i got my ".mozconfig" file right!

If it fails I'll try your method.

Cheers, and I'll let you know how I go...

hmmmmm...

Well my compile of Firefox-3.5.2 did end up successful... but not with kernel 2.6.29.6.. or 2.6.29.4.... however it worked in 421 with kernel 2.6.15.16... Confused Confused Confused

I compiled it in 4.3beta1 k2.6.29.6 with (what I thought) conservative options in my '.mozconfig'. It ended up less than 10MB anyway so that is ok. "./Configure" went fine, took 5 min, "make" took 1hr 25 min! (athlon 1733MHz, 768MB ram Surprised )

Results:

Puppy 423 PPA beta1... failed completely at the "import" stage (as same as other builds), killed pupsave Sad

Spup (built from woof, a July build, k 2.6.29.4)... nothing..... from term ... nothing.... hung system, hard reboot ( Sad ) ... saved pupsave Smile

Puppy 421, k 2.6.25.16... worked perfectly,, Confused ... (Razz ... yes razbrilla!).. why? I have no idea.

Why can't firefox be used with these late model kernel Pups??? Maybe someone with more experience should compile..... I've compiled apps for awhile, but usually only for myself... Twisted Evil

Hey mic did you try my method? its a lot quicker, lol last time I tried ff3.5 on 4 series it ran ran nice, not 100& like 2.14X or Dpup but close. I think it was 416A that I tried it on.

I'll work something out when I switch from 2.14X but since this is a beta, I'm not overly worried about it just yet Smile
I have bigger fish to fry right now Smile

Hi Barry I just spent the weekend updating 2.14X Rox-Filer and the biggest part was the mimes, so if you wanted to update to ROX2.9 just compile and add this mime package plus Rename /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/OpenWith to /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/SendTo
and you should be good to go, Smile
ps this mime package is very small and very packed and will only work on 2.9 due to the name changes.

I have been posting issues and problems to :

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=45566

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=45502

Can someone tell me the correct thread to use so the appropriate
propeller heads can see it?

I don't mind testing but if the powers to be don't see the issues
then what is the point? Good day!

Thanks
