Runs very well on this hardware, ATI Radeon 3450 AMD 2.4MHz processor.

ATI card was recognised from live CD.

eth0 was auto-detected OK

"de" keyboard layout although selected with the XORG wizard was not saved to xorg.conf so had to be manually edited.

When setting up wlan0 using Jemimah's Pwireless2 message-box appears showing only "no interfaces detected". I then manually created the file /usr/local/Pwireless2/interface with the text contents "wlan0".
Pwireless2 then started OK from the command line and also from the setup menu - but no access points displayed.

At that point I fired up Dougal's Network wizard which then saw and connected the correct access point.

I also had this problem in Quirky 006. After installing Jemimah's program in Quirky 006 and starting Pwireless2 from the command line, Jemimah's program worked after a few repeat attempts.

Will have to play further with this. I reckon Jemimah's prog is actually OK - maybe needs a tweak on booting so that the interfaces file actually gets created, and a correct Pwireless2 profile gets detected.

This is one amazing version of Puppy despite the small bugs.

Just noticed, when the usb WLAN card is removed (Ralink using rt73usb module), the wlan Pwireless2 tray icon still shows green as if it was still connected. This should really be programmed so that the icon reverts to the (disconnected) red version.

Jemimah's program now also sees the wlan0 interface and access points.

Also just noticed, eth0 although auto-detected while booting from live cd was not up when re-booting from a frugal install pup_save file. This meant having to reconnect to eth0 using Dougal's wizard again. Connected OK after this.

PostPosted: Thu 04 Mar 2010, 08:01    Post subject: Keyboard layout important bugfix  

tronkel,
Thanks for bringing that to my attention. There's a typo in /usr/sbin/xorgwizard.

For everyone who has a non-US keyboard layout, please read this!

After Xorg desktop has loaded, open /usr/sbin/xorgwizard in Geany and look at line 64:

Code:
#read the console keymap (country layout), apply to xkb...
CONSKEYMAP="`cat /etc/keymap | cut -c 1-2`"
[ "$CONSKEYMAP" = "" ] && CONSKEYMAP="us"
case $CONSKEYMAP in
  az) XKEYMAP="fr" ;;     #azerty
  wa) XKEYMAP="fr" ;;     #wangbe
  dv) XKEYMAP="dvorak" ;; #dvorak
  cr) XKEYMAP="cz" ;;     #croat
  sl) XKEYMAP="si" ;;     #slovene v2.12 bugfix, changed from 'sk' to 'si' (sk is slovakia)
  sv) XKEYMAP="se" ;;     #sweden
  uk) XKEYMAP="gb" ;;     #united kingdom
  *)  XKEYMAP="$xCONSKEYMAP" ;;
esac


...that should be XKEYMAP="$CONSKEYMAP", not XKEYMAP="$xCONSKEYMAP" -- delete that "x" then save.

Exit from X, run 'xorgwizard', and then run 'xwin' to restart X, and all should be right.

whew what a relief Smile quirky has not only taken-off he has disappeared into a mist of grey dust.

pwireless2 as pointed out still need work on the intergration into connect wizard..
pgprs-connect still cant be found in the menu after the first setup i.e. menus are not refreshed after setup: this the last time will point that out.
pgprs-connect does connect from a terminal.

xdelta6-8 file works fine.

I have tested quirky008 on

1. Desktop: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E7500 @ 2.93GHz
Intel_r_Eaglelake_Graphics_ChipDELLE2210 1680x1050 resolution OK.
Printer: HP LaserJet P2014 (USB) OK, eth0 OK

2.Desktop: AMD Athlon 899 MHz
Printers: Okipage 14ex (LP1), Canon Pixma iP4600 (USB) both OK. wlan0

3. Laptop: Intel Pentium M processor 1.60GHz.
Quirky installed on a 4GB USB stick (no hard disk), wlan0

When setting up wlan0 ifor 2. and 3. I got the response
Pwireless2: Wireless interface not detected

Switching to Network Wizard the connection could be established without problems. I answered YES SET AS DEFAULT at the Network Connection Wizard window and rebooted the actual computer. Alas, no autoconnect. After reconnecting manually one or two times the old "NETWORK CONFIGURATION OF wlan0 SUCCESSFUL!" window appeared. Answering YES this time enabled autoconnect. The attached file contains the bootsysinit.log for the two cases.

I minor observation is that trying to change the number of Virtual Desktops was rejected on the two desktops, but was successful on the laptop.

There is nothing wrong with the PartView function, but it is my (strongly biased) opinion that the attached version is superior for slow computers with many disk partitions.

Hello Smile!

Just a small question.

How is the original third quirky idea (chroot inst. of switch_root) coming along?

aarf,
One important feature of this new integrated networking is there are no longer arbitrary menu entries for individual network connection tools.

If you chose GPRS as the default tool, then you should have /usr/local/bin/defaultconnect with this in it:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
exec rxvt -title "pgprs-connect PRESS CTRL+C TO DISCONNECT" -e pgprs-connect


When you click on the 'connect' icon on the desktop, 'defaultconnect' script will run immediately.

...that's the idea anyway, the actual implementation has some rough edges, as this is just the "first take" at doing it.

Computer fan loud and continued until I restart the computer. I suspect that the CPU usage is very high, may be a matter of fact I only just entered the X desktop.

Noticed today, new icon on the front page of Softpedia site; for new Nvidea drivers, for various hardware. Hope it is helpful. Quirky running great, but I have only used for about an hour or so. Invisible Man

Subject description: Dissapearance of /mnt/home in cd burning <SOLVED>
 

Even though my frugal boot partition was mounted by default, I found that in both PBurn and Burniso2cd, I was unable to select anything from /mnt/home or for that matter, mnt/[partition containing frugal install].
I also checked /mnt for the existence of /mnt/home using ROX and it did not exist there.
Also, I mounted another partition and upon unmounting it the /mnt/directory for it stayed.

A pupsave file must be created before /mnt/home is available to programs.
