What about the .cmd files???

Does *all* of /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod, go into the DEV???***


As far as I know just the .h files go to the dev.

Ha! I just did a Pfind and got 16000 hits for ".c".. all in /usr/src/linux/2.6.33.2/.. er yes, kernel src is loaded! Laughing

Only other .c files are in /usr/share/doc, usually as examples.

Hi Mick, thanks for the reply,

When you run ati-driver-installer-10-10-x86.x86_64.run and it auto-compiles Catalyst, you end up with 69 .c, .h, .o, and .cmd files under /lib/modules/fglrx, plus modules.order, modules.ofmap, and modules.ccwmap.

I'm wondering what to do with these. If they don't need to be in the regular Catalyst .pet, then I can split them off into a DEV and have the regular .pet be that much smaller. At least, that's my thinking.

Pity MU is so busy, he'd know for sure.
I reckon, once compiled, the .c and .o files are useless. The .h are the ones needed for compiling against. I don't know about the .cmd files I'm afraid.
The .h files could certainly go in a _DEV package, wouldn't be needed for everyday use I wouldn't think.

I'm still wrestling with compiz on my radeon 9200pro, not supported by catalyst 10.10.. did you know 10.11 is oot, within the last 24hrs?

Cheers

.cmd files are commonly used in Windows (as an alternative to .bat). I'm not sure why it's in a linux installer, though.

Installed Firefox 4.0b7 and Nvidia 260.19.12 driver.Everything looking good.

237 usage report

I am using this on a day to day basis
Every time I run the computer I have to run the
audio wizard. If I am trying to run a youtube/flash video, I have to run the wizard twice. The bottom right audio icon and the woof woof bark is very helpful.

The new ATI radeon graphic driver whilst allowing me to run compiz in KDE has effected flash. If I try and run full screen I get not a 'black screen of death' but a white one (never seen that before)
- in that situation press ctrl + alt + backspace
and type xwin jwm
at prompt (most will know this)

Before running the ATI driver, Seamonkey was very stable - now it has a tendency to crash.

If dragging .ASF video files into gnomeplayer
the video comes and disappears and I get audio only . . .

Being aware of the above I am able to use 237 very well
Thanks guys Smile

Found this info about mobility video card driver support at AMD web site. Basic statement, get the driver from the manufacturer of the computer.
Thanks for reply. I tried, but Gericom has an lousy support. Nothing for Linux. I also searched some other manufacturers without success til now.

My hope is increasing Smile If there is anything I can do or test, please let me know.

BTW and OT: I'm glad that Nantucket Clipper isn't completely forgotten. It was my first (and nearly only) attempt to learn a programming language.

Cheers

Finally, i got success with shared printer via samba.
My problem is the linux driver does not work.
But i realized the Windows client do not use the linux driver but of Windows. Idea

Updated SFS.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=60836
Easy to set up shared folder almost out-of-the-box.
Sharing printer is not so easy but as for the samba settings, the SFS has well prepared cofig file sample.

I recommend rcrsn51's Samba-TNG for PET.

Thanks cthisbear.
I recommend pup-431JPqs3, Japanese/English bilingual, suitable to gather information regarding Japan.
http://openlab.jp/puppylinux/download/quickset_puppy/
it is released last year, with direct desktop, autoconnect, easy to setup country settings... etc.

Enjoy akihabara!

PostPosted: Thu 18 Nov 2010, 09:51    Post subject: icons and program problems  

Hello, I am a senior member of puppy and are passed
from relise 4.3.1 to 5.1.1 and then the luci-237.
By doing this, I saw that the desktop is changed as follows:
Standard icons have disappeared (see the pic).
The program xplns does not start (see the pic)
icon in the icon tray bar of the opera program appears to work but is confused.(see the pic)
I'm sure that there is a simple solution, but I was not able to
find it.
Am looking forward to your help. Thanks in advance.

opera 10.63 downloaded from here
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/
and installed in luci237 does not have a borked icon. But installed in sid001 and puppy squeeze 009 the icon is "confused".

Subject description: legacy card
 

I have 237 installed to a 4gb flash drive.
This pc has an ATI Radeon X1600PRO PCIE graphics card installed in it.
I bought the card 3-5 years ago (can't remember) but it's considered a
"legacy" card by ATI as far as the commercial driver is concerned so
I'm using the Xorg_High-1.1-Lucid driver in quickpet.

# report-video
VIDEO REPORT: Lucid Puppy, version 237

Chip description:
oem: ATI ATOMBIOS
product: RV530 01.00

Driver used by Xorg:


Video mode used by Xorg:
Resolution: Depth:

...the above also recorded in /tmp/report-video
# glxgears
14904 frames in 5.0 seconds
14949 frames in 5.0 seconds
14913 frames in 5.0 seconds
14877 frames in 5.0 seconds
14962 frames in 5.0 seconds
#
So while the commercial driver is great for the newer ATI cards the
Xorg_High-1.1-Lucid driver works great for "legacy" cards.

Agreed. In my opinion, the easiest way to add a print server to a Samba file server is with P910nd. Then you don't have to use CUPS on the server side at all.

Yes.
And the Xorg_High driver might even be less troublesome for some newer cards (see Lobster's recent post).
