PFILE=no ???

That is a series 1 Puppy boot code. We are onto Series 4 now!

If you don't want a save file then pfix=ram is the boot code.

Is there a way to stop asking the save file question?

Probably not unless the init file is changed - but I don't really know.

Yes, pfix=nox should work.

I noticed in your previous post you said PFIX=nox.

Change that to pfix=nox and I think it might work!
Certainly the init script for 4.2.1 is a bit inconsistent with regard to what bootcodes it will allow in UPPER CASE.

PostPosted: Fri 26 Feb 2010, 04:03    Post_subject: No FAT16 from GParted 0.4.5  

One more bug in Puppy 4.3.1's GParted (0.4.5): when formatting an SD flash memory card to FAT16, it actually gets formatted to FAT32 (as reported right after formatting). Most MP3 players don't read this format - and get stuck.

With GParted 0.3.3 from Puppy 3.01 the correct FAT16 format is obtained, with no problems at all.

PostPosted: Mon 01 Mar 2010, 10:36    Post_subject: PANZERKOPF's rc.sysinit fix for remastereing  

In my remastered 431 usb modem switch would hang as often as it didn't resulting in pupdial failing to find the switched device. I also noticed that "usb modules not found" type errors just before X started. Disableing the udev rule and running the switch command from the command line was always successful.

In this same thread at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=47563&start=180
PANZERKOPF describes the bug and offers a modified rc.sysinit described in item 3. I have remastered again, including this file, and switching with udev hasn't failed since.

Thanks PANZERKOPF

PostPosted: Wed 03 Mar 2010, 23:15    Post_subject: Supplemental dialup-modem-related packages
Sub_title: Delta for modem fix pack 4 to 5, mwave script fix, latest usb_modeswitch, re: rc.sysinit fixes.
 

1. I cleared up some "loose ends" in the modem_fix_pack 5 available on the previous page of this thread. Since they add little new functionality, most users do not need to replace it. But for inclusion in Barry's effort and any puplets that now contain the fix pack 4, I provide here a delta package to add the "-5" updates to it.

2. While checking modem-init scripts for the above-mentioned delta package, I discovered an error in the script for the mwave modems and have corrected it. The mwave package is kernel independent and can also be applied to 4.1.2 and 4.2.1 puppies. Hardly anyone will need the package, but it is here for replacement in the "official puppy".

3. The usb_modeswitch utility has been updated many times since the version (1.0.2) we have used for a long time.
EDIT: The new version, 1.1.1, is part of the new delta package mentioned in the "update" below. [Remainder of bullet no longer relevant - deleted.]

4. Panzerkopf has contributed here some improvements (for remastering and full installations) to the rc.sysinit script that starts puppy up. My pup_event_backend_modprobe fix package (on page 16 of this thread, too) also modifies rc.sysinit, but in a way that allows both fixes to co-exist. While panzerkopf replaces that file, my fix merely edits it in areas unaffected by his changes. However, the order of installation is crucial: If the modprobe fix is already installed, it must first be uninstalled; then panzerkopf's rc.sysinit.gz file should be downloaded/moved to the /etc/rc.d/ directory and clicked on to decompress it in place; then the latest modprobe fix package can be installed. (Re-download it to get the latest fix to it, if your original download of "-3" was number 29 or less.)

I think this completes my work on my "modem and serialization" effort -- until problems are reported. Please report any problems regarding modems or module loading. Thanks for everyone's help in verifying these packages.
Richard

UPDATE 4/9/10: Note that now only the mwave package is current. The "delta 4 to 5" is augmented by "delta 5 to 6" downloadable here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=408355#408355
The usb_modeswitch-1.1.0 package (previously available in this posting) is superseded by version 1.1.1, which is included in the new "delta 5 to 6" package. Therefore, I have removed the download for 1.1.0.

I'm uploading Quirky Puppy 008, which has rerwin's recent PETs 'pup_event_backend_modprobe_fix_to_p43x-3.pet' and 'modem_fix_pack_to_431-4.pet', as announced here on my blog:

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=01411

Not, the latest, so to test rewrin's scripts on Quirky, please install the upgrade PETs that rerwin has posted.

...however, I'm not sure if these upgrades will apply cleanly to Quirky, as some scripts in Quirky, like rc.sysinit, have changed considerably since 431. Myself or rerwin will have to look into this.

Note that a script like /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit is actually in Woof, so this affects all puppies that build from the latest Woof, such as playdayz' Upup.

I'll announce Quirky 008 on my blog as soon as it has finished uploading.

Thanks, Barry, for incorporating my modem and module-loading upgrade packages.

Regarding my "delta" fix above: it only adds some PCI modem firmware tarballs and updates the modemprobe_erase script. It modifies only the new "modprobe_protect" script. So, I do not believe the package impacts Barry's modifications of rc.sysinit, rc.services, or MODULESCONFIG.
Richard

Now that I have checked the files in question, I see that two of my updates to MODULESCONFIG are not implemented as I intended. From a difference listing:
Code:
38c37
< PREFLIST=' rtl8180:r8180 rtl8187:r8187 rt2500usb:rt73usb orinoco_nortel:hostap_plx orinoco_plx:hostap_plx orinoco_tmd:hostap_plx orinoco_pci:hostap_pci bcm43xx:ssb prism54:p54pci cdc_acm:dgcusbdcp hsfpcibasic2:hcfpcihw hcfpcihw:hsfpcibasic2 hso:option tulip:dmfe '
---
> PREFLIST=' rtl8180:r8180 rtl8187:r8187 rt2500usb:rt73usb orinoco_nortel:hostap_plx orinoco_plx:hostap_plx orinoco_tmd:hostap_plx orinoco_pci:hostap_pci bcm43xx:ssb prism54:p54pci hsfpcibasic2:hcfpcihw hcfpcihw:hsfpcibasic2 option:hso tulip:dmfe hso:option '
42c41
< PREFUSBSTG=" usb_storage:cdc_acm|ti_usb_3410_5052|ipw|ipwireless|moto_modem|nozomi|option|sierra|hso "
---
> PREFUSBSTG=" usb_storage:cdc_acm|ti_usb_3410_5052|hso|ipw|ipwireless|moto_modem|nozomi|option|sierra "
The issue is with the preferences between the hso and option drivers. I have not been able to get the hso support to work, as it turns out to be more complex than I have been able to address. Therefore, the "option" driver should be used whenever there is a choice. So, in the first difference group, the element "option:hso" should be removed; in the second, the "|hso" element should be moved to the end of the string, so that "option" module is preferred.

Anyone with a USB wireless modem that can be supported by both drivers should make those edits to /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG.


There is an omission from MODULESCONFIG of updates to the PCI_OVERRIDES section. The first is my error in placing a comment inappropriately, that should go just before the line "PCI_OVERRIDES='":
Code:
#A module name of (none) prevents loading of any module for the hardware ID.
Also:
Code:
12d11
< (none) 0x0000127a 0x00004321 #Rockwell riptide modem not supported by driver
I assume this is omitted because quirky does not support PCI modems. But my fear is that it will get dropped if someone uses the file as a basis in another puplet. I hope these can be restored in the next quirky version, to avoid a potential problem later.

UPDATE: I have updated the original "modprobe" package with the comment correction just described. The download count is at "34", so subsequent downloads have the correction.

Sub_title: Dialog Box Bug Report
 

I originally thought this was a issue across a few versions, now I've discovered that it is *not* a problem in 4.12. So I'm posting this here...

There is a problem with dialog boxes opening up and going off the bottom of the screen with 16:xx format type monitors(recent laptops, wide screens,etc). I don't believe it effects standard 4:3 format monitors. IMHO,The problem centers around libGTK-2.14x. Puppy 4.12 with libGTK-2.12x has no problem. Upgrading 4.31 to libGTK-2.18x (and glib 2.22x) fixes it, but some people including Barry are having a annoying screen flash problem with that version. Barry, rolled back to 2.16x for Quirky. So I am looking for a libGTK-2.16x pet and the appropriate matching glib. Any available?

Here is a link to the thread.

It may be a different problem, but I have Puppy 4.1.1 and a standard 4:3 screen and xdialog windows are often placed off screen.

Beem, Yes, Actually I was the person who started that thread.

I still find it quite interesting that the problem happened *after* we went to GTK-2.14x

OverDrive

Update: OOPS, Beem, Sorry I just realized you had quoted disciple and was discussing with him....

FWIW, I think we got it fixed now using GTK-2.16x

PostPosted: Tue 06 Apr 2010, 16:38    Post_subject: Wireless modem support upgrade
Sub_title: Delta for modem fix pack 5 to 6, upgraded usb_modeswitch, ttyUSBx improvement
 

I have made further updates to the the modprobe-serialization fix and modem fix pack, downloadable from the previous page of this thread. Attached is a delta package for use if you have the previous fixes in this area. To complete the support for it, you should also uninstall and replace the pup_event_modprobe package with the (-4) version downloadable with this link: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=27883

My posting on page 16 of this thread contains the updated details.

As before, please notify me of any problems after installing the packages. The best way to tell me is by PM and an attachment of the diagnostic file you can create with the "pmodemdiag" command. please also post here of any success with the new version, since I cannot test whether it all works in the real world (no modem for testing). Thanks to all for your help in my getting this far with the wireless modem support.

UPDATE 4/7/10: Re-uploaded the delta package after the first 2 downloads (which should be re-done), to make the pinstall script executable so cleanup takes place.
