I do remember that the nv driver and fullscreen and flashplayer were trouble before. What about using the nvidia drivers from Quickpet: Drivers?

yes, now using Nvidia driver (Nvidia-256.35_lupu500-k2.6.33.2.pet, GEForce 7600GT ) it's OK (Firefox or Iron)
Thanks,

Yeah but I can't get into flsynclient at all. Restart X doesn't make the error message stop.

# cat /usr/bin/synclient
#!/bin/sh
# synclient wrapper for Lucid Puppy 5.1
# 23 aug 2010 shinobar

There is a for loop :
Code:
TOUCHPAD=""
for T in Elantech Alps Synaptics; do
   grep -F -q "$T" /proc/bus/input/devices && TOUCHPAD="$T"
done
if [ "$TOUCHPAD" = "" ];then
  pidof flsynclient &>/dev/null && killall flsynclient
  errmsg $(gettext 'No Synaptics touchpad supported found.')
  exit
fi

This is what I get at (u)rxvt :
Code:
# for T in Elantech Alps Synaptics; do grep -F -q "$T" /proc/bus/input/devices; done
#

This is part of grep --help :
-F, --fixed-strings PATTERN is a set of newline-separated fixed string
-q, --quiet, --silent suppress all normal output

This is what I got then :
Code:
# for T in Elantech Alps Synaptics; do grep -F "$T" /proc/bus/input/devices; done
N: Name="AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint"

usr-bin-synclient is 60 lines short. Last lines :
Code:
pidof flsynclient &>/dev/null && killall flsynclient
MSG=$(printf "$(gettext '%s touchpad found.')" $TOUCHPAD)
MSG="$MSG $(gettext 'But you need to restart X-server to control it from synclient.')"
errmsg "$MSG"
exit

This is line 6 :
Code:
[ "$DISPLAY" != "" ] || exec synclient.bin "$@"

I dont know where the $DISPLAY gets created.
And I dont know, why this works here .... Shocked Very Happy Laughing Rolling Eyes

PostPosted: Mon 15 Nov 2010, 00:12    Post_subject: LiveCD  

Testing LIveCD for PUP237. Running on X2 with 2GB with 2LAN adapters. All works well, thus far.
  1. I booted with pfix=ram
  2. at desktop I set the time and numlock and exited to desktop
  3. I started QuickPET to install Nvidia driver "Lucid511_nvidia-260.19..."
  4. I went to Menu...Setup....Personalize Setting to rerun First...
  5. I selected nVidia icon now present, set my video
and have been running solidly all day.

Seems stable for the few selected things I do. Hope this helps other LiveCD users who have similar configurations.

PostPosted: Mon 15 Nov 2010, 03:50    Post_subject: RealAudio Files  

Testing Luci-237, pfix=ram, frugal.

I cannot play RealAudio ra files in gnome-mplayer. Neither by direct entry, nor by using the default browser plugin.

Test files:

http://www.lvbeethoven-music.com/Beethoven-Midi/_RealAudio/

The problem seems to be with gnome-mplayer 0.9.9.2. The problem occurs in every recent Puppy I checked (QNOP, Quirky, etc.) that uses that version. In contrast, version 0.9.6 used in LUPU 5.1.1 plays RealAudo files just fine.

GNOME-MPlayer is just a frontend, blame mplayer.

Did you try the Alsamixer? (Menu > Multimedia > Mediatools >)
There you can navigate to "MIC" using the keyboard arrow keys, then, using the "up-and-down-arrow-keys" adjust the volume.

Hope that helps

One note on luci-237 video, I was getting an average 250 frames in glxgears with luci-232, it has jumped to 270 frames, so yet another improvement! Very Happy

playdayz, I found a "flaw" in Woof: add "-libdrm-*-dbg" to xorg_base in the DISTRO_PKGS_SPECS. Some debugging symbols of various X drivers sneaked in the ISO. I'm working on a new experimental Puppy, I found more examples for unneeded packages and I can take a look at Luci's package list too.

Also, I have lots of templates for many packages, including xchat (with automatic connection to #puppylinux). I also PM'ed you the pcpufreq I use.

Indeed, a productive Puppy day Smile

Thanks tubeguy.
Will you do one more favor?
Gzip the '/var/log/Xorg.0.log' and '/etc/X11/xorg.conf', and send it me with PM. or attach on a post.

Yes, I get the same result. Smplayer will not play them either--confirming what iguleder said. They will play rm but not these ra's. However, Pmusic will play them. Audacious in the PPM will play them also and probably VLC. Real audio was very interesting--still for low bandwidth I do not think there is any better codec. Sorry, but that is about the best I can do right now.

What is your video card and what video driver are you using?
You should be able to get much better readings with the proper video driver setup.
I have an old Nvidia card with the proper Nvidia driver and get glxgears frame readings of above 5,000. With the proper setup, any video card should give glxgears frame readings of 1,200 or more.
