" Great disappointment.
Install was ok (pfix=ram) but after having spent time to configure to
my liking, got the dreaded 'Session not saved' message again at shutdown."

Is that due to selecting Xorg..not Xvesa...
or the reverse.

Or anything to do with this?

ttuuxxx
it would appear the 460 is using the original puppy 431 kernel sources but with a different config file. Could you please confirm that sources are the "kernel_src-2.6.30.5-patched.sfs4.sfs" and provide the config file, so we can play with this too Very Happy

A familiar situation for me as well.
Just had several days of discussion and testing about this in the dpup482d4 thread.

Still running this daily and no real problems, on my test box anyway.Seems like a pretty solid base.

PostPosted: Thu 26 Nov 2009, 22:49    Post subject: What do you want in uPup?
Subject description: here's some of what i want can we work together?
 

This seems like a good place to ask--are there any people who want something similar to what i want in a uPup?

I want a uPup, first of all, because it has Glibc_2.9+ and other current software and will run the Iron browser as well as being compatible with almost all current software--everyone tests on Ubuntu!.

I would like a uPup that uses my graphics card well, not just vesa--using vesa on a large crt makes me want to throw up. This means I want all the xorg_servers/drivers plus glx and dri. It also means I want a solid compiling environment so I can make my own prorpietary drivers and other things. (i have done this and compiled the ati driver 9.10 on uPup with SitHeelSpeak's compiler).

It is also easy to add software from the ubuntu package repositories.

I don't care much about size since it is my Desktop operating system. I do like to be able to copy the whole enchilada into memory--I did that with MU's 500 MB New Year's puplet..

Hmm, that's all I can think of right now. I have made some progress about adding the graphics drivers and extensions back into uPup built with Woof. I have been using my own builds from Woof, and they are stable just fine. That may be the greatest thing of all about Woof--a personal build for everyone. But if there are others who would like to talk about what they want in uPup and how to get it, i am all ears. Or maybe it would just be a good thing to share our personal solutions and keep building private uPups. I posted a couple of anomalies in Woof under Bugs-> Woof 2009-1120.

A big thing really big, is Flash Player. Using Version 9 is not a long term solution, and in fact, Version 9 has some problems of its own going full screen on hulu.

Another big issue is X not starting. I think some of that is due to xorgwizard defaulting to the fbdev video driver rather than to vesa. I don't know why though or how to fix it.

<Add> I am thinking of making a uPup with all of xorg 7.4, with devx installed with SHS's glibc 4.4.1 and compile features, plus tidying up little things as I can. Would anyone be interested in such a thing? It would be about 300MB I am guessing.


Good news about Flash. Flash 10 is working in the prelim build of uPup with xorg full, devx and SHSD gcc 4.4.1. It even plays full screen videos in hulu.com. I should say this is with Namoroka/Firefox 3.6b5pre.

mavrothal, I can confirm that is the kernel sources file for the 2.6.30.5 kernel that is used by Woof 20091120, which is what ttuuxxx used to build "Puppy 4.60."

Here is another uPup built with the same version of Woof and the same kernel, but with more xorg_xservers (video drivers) and GLX and DRI enabled. [url] http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=49665
[/url] About half way down the page under Useful Links there is a link to the 2.6.30.5 kernel sources.
