anyone want to try e ? (enlightenment.. e-17 that is..)

see here (Please read thoroughly)

Dpup Issues
    Lua.. use the lucid version, debian's is severely broken, and documented
    d-bus.. reinstall dbus from Squeeze, seemed to work, (um dev is needed too)
    for uninitiated, lots of libs are needed (well not too many)....... the SVN download is Shocked Shocked Shocked HUGE!. Sorry, no package, if you have a spare couple of gig and a few hours (and a fast connection Wink ) try this, else don't!


Have fun...

Looks great Smile

The first 008 attempt failed, got a kernel panic even before the initramfs was loaded; I forgot the modules go to the main SFS so the kernel doesn't recognize my hard drive at all; now I'm recompiling the new dpup kernel with all ATA/SATA/CD/DVD/USB stuff compiled in, plus Aufs and Squashfs, modules are just a waste of space if they're loaded on all hardware Cool

The ISO is 129 MB, the kernel is much smaller than the Lupu one for some reason.

Problems, problems ... still no kernel Crying or Very sad

I tried the Lupu kernel .config and I still get a kernel panic. I have no idea what's wrong.

atm I'm compiling a kernel that uses Barry's 2.6.34.1 configuration, let's hope Barry knows better Laughing

Ummm ... we need to get the numlock thing working. Can anyone make a PET?


I use the debian numlockx package. See

http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/i386/numlockx/download

However, it does not turn the numlock LED on. This means that this LED becomes working in reverse mode Smile if you hit the NumLock button.
It is weird. This has been a known bug in Debian

Iguleder: How did you update initrd.gz /lib/modules to be in sync with your new kernel ?

gjuhasz: lol, that's even worse .... a working numlock without the light on is bad. Smile

pemasu: yes. I think the kernel panic happens on init and I think I found the cause now - the kernel was named 2.6.35.6-bfs-ck1-dpup-3, I removed the extra string, so it's just 2.6.35.6. I think the init scripts check the kernel version somewhere, I remember something ... maybe init fails because it cannot detect the kernel version properly. Idea

Largely, there are 4 things I want this kernel to have: CPU frequency scaling, Nouveau, Intel drivers with KMS and rfkill. For some reason Barry and playdayz (or 01micko) use a 250Hz frequency and the "performance" CPU frequency governor, which is an overkill to laptops, I switched to 300Hz (better responsiveness for multimedia) and "ondemand".

Iguleder: also was your 2.6.35.6 kernel source patched for squashfs ?
I couldnt find newer patched kernel source than 2.6.34 here: http://bkhome.org/sources/

PostPosted: Tue 28 Sep 2010, 13:29    Post subject: seamonkey -mail now works at dpup-006
Subject description: 2.0.8
 

006 > seamonkey mail and news is cleaning up my @aim account at the moment . was surprised it didn't asked for password at first setup.
The password was asked for after clicking GetMsgs
Now I want to change the kezboard to qwertz : works fine, had to delete en_US though at xkbconfigmanager but quirky 1.3 was messing the screen that came back switching to Contr+Alt+F2 and immediately back to F4
[EDIT]
Because there are three buttons for the keyboard at the MouseKeyboardWizard:
1.Choose keyboard layout for your country : Switchig from us to de now was blueing/reding the screen here, too; solution same as Quirky
2.Advanced Xorg keyboard configuration : Layout and Layout Variants did the trick
[/EDIT]
huh : 468 messages 21 mb

Numlock seems to work for generic pc keyboards. can switch it, showing green it's numbers and showing no light it's the direction keys.

So it's not NumLock anymore but NumPadOn Idea

Karl it doesn't ask for pass in initial setup indeed but once you want to connect to mail account it has option to remember password

Good news, got 2.6.35.6 compiled!

Now I'm doing another build, this time with BFS and some ck1 patches plus modifications. The kernel is very big but it's good Smile

Gonna test it on my netbook, it's supposed to fix the audio problems of all 2010 netbooks Very Happy

Does this mean that 008 will not need the additional xorg_high.pet file added for proper video acceleration?

The kernel has nothing to do with the Xorg_High thing. However, if we have KMS it should make things a little bit easier on Intel and nvidia hardware.

The KMS just makes everything happen in native resolution out-of-the-box, under normal conditions the console should be set to your native resolution. Once the kernel boots, you get your native resolution automatically detected.
