Really enjoying your versions of puppy - thanks Ttuuxxx

Posting this from 214x9 running responsively on a PIII compaq deskpro with 128mb ram. Most of the machines at the Recycling Centre here are penium 4s now. Most using Puppy as an os with much success.

Subject description: 'fixed' boot cd that will not boot ?
 

I see Tux has a possible .pet fix for my boot problem listed at the start of this section. The boot from cd always has problem at the xvessa / xorg stage - unable to identify screen on samsung v25 laptop. I tried altering screen resolution to no avail. older puppies boot ok. How can I install a .pet to a cd that will not boot?. Help gratefully received.

An update here managed to get cd to boot. Problem was if first select xorg the system does not see the screen resolution and will not get passed this boot section, selecting xvessa in the same boot will not work either, but select xvessa at the first instance instead of xorg and it works fine.

Subject description: how to get OpenGL working on 4.31.1?
 

Hi,
on puppies 4.31.1 frugal
Installing the xorg_xorg_full_dri-7.3.1.pet (loaded from ibiblio) gives what follows:
Code:
# glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".

whereas OpenGL is working on pup4.30 final with k2.6.25.16 and is NOT working on pup4.30 final with k2.6.30.5.on the same machine EDITED:(same comment as the above given code).

Thanks for any help.
Cheers, Charlie

Something IS wrong with 4.3's xorg/kernel. nVidia drivers don't seem to work from the official installer.

A vanilla 4.3 with .25.16 works perfectly.

No kernel dri , agp and/or vid card modules for that kernel yet...the xorg drivers are only part of the opengl picture

thanks for replying mikeb!
I am not fluent english enough....please, what does mean "the xorg drivers are only part of the opengl picture" ?
Thanks in advance for your comprehension.
Cheers, Charlie

ps: gray has compiled NVIDIA drivers for k2.6.30.5 which include OpenGL (Googleearth works nice with it, but I have another application gCAD3D requiring OpenGL which does not even open)

Sorry was suggesting this may be the problem....
opengl consists of a kernel driver for the AGP bus, a kernel driver for the specific card and the AGP/3d interface, and a Xorg driver for the card for opengl and the opengl/dri driver for Xorg...so 4 separate parts that need to be correct for opengl to function. Hope that makes sense. If you havethe kernel drivers and its working it sounds like a problem with a specific program. running glxgears in a terminal should give a speed of several hundred fps or greater

thanks for the explanations!
then, are the existing xorg_xorg_full_dri-7.3.1.pet and other xorg_..._dri.pet compatible with the 2.6.30.5 kernel?

as now, direct rendering do not works;

I get a speed over 900FPS, seems correct.

I do not know what to do. I wonder how the time investment is to compile OpenGl for the new kernel, and if it is even really necessary - have no idea.

I posted the same question on 4.3final, gCAD3D, Nvidia, and 4.4 threads...waiting for an answer...

Thanks for any idea
Cheers Charlie

sounds ok though you have a fast machine. The output from running
glxinfo
should confirm or otherwise.

cannot say ......this new kernel may not have the dri drivers made yet.(for puppy)

Hey runt, any chance you made a pet of Enlightenment for 4.3?
