Does anyone know how to make a wacom tablet driver
persistent i.e. stay loaded even after a reboot

How about the boot manager?
You need to rmmod the module before starting the boot manager.
It registers the module name at /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG.
Like:
ADDLIST=' wacom'

As the commandline shows urxvt also troubles without UTF-8

The utf8 issue is long persistent issue on Puppy/Woof.
See the posts on Wary:

They are not different format or encoding, but the issue of the name of locale.
Most of Puppy and woof use '.utf8' as the UTF-8 encoding, whereas most of Linux distributions use '.UTF-8'.
(Need to modify rc.country)

you could add Xorg_High to get max performance.


Aha! ...what does that mean? Edit an xorg.conf and put in...what?

I'm interested in installing this on my mom's old 256mb desktop but I only have 2 hours to do it, so I want to learn as much as I can first!

Needless to say, 5.2... even in a development stage... might still be the best choice. Smile

PostPosted: Wed 24 Nov 2010, 21:39    Post subject:  Won't boot from USB??!?!!!  

I found a critical (?) bug: won't boot from USB (or SD card). Sorry to interrupt all these technical discussions about UTF and whatever, and about size vs efficiency philosophy discussions, but really... netbooks have no CD drives. Puppy 4.x seemed to work.

I used the latest UNetBootin to place the Luci-238 ISO on my sd card. I went to my computer, stuck it in, and the Puppy image came up, it said "loading drivers to access disk drives" and all... then it searched folders for puppy files. Then subfolders. Then sub-subfolders. Then failed.

It's all right there on the SD Card! luci_238.sfs, right on the main sd card (not in a folder).

ok ttuuxxx..

you asked for it, you got it!

new2dir fix!

Ok, the problem wasn't make at all. I looked in /usr/bin/installwatch and couldn't see anything obvious. But the file /tmp/pkginstall.list was churning out rubbish...

Hmm... I notice we had a very old version of installwatch, from 2006/7. I searced for a lucid package, and installwatch turned up in the checkinstall package. I unpacked it and took a peek. I repackaged and hacked the installed watch script to be puppy compliant and ditched all the docs and checkinstall script, not in puppy.

The end result is a working new2dir

Yippee!

Now ttuuxx can compile us some skinny stuff!

Cheers!

This package replaces /usr/bin/installwatch and /usr/lib/installwatch.so

I haven't had that issue, though I don't use unetbootin, did all the files transfer correctly to the usb stick? Are you certain the main sfs didn't get corrupted? Check the size of it compared to on your CD. Have you successfully booted puppy before from said medium?

Before you say it's a bug you have to search every avenue. If you test these things and they test ok, then you still can't boot please get back to us. It could also be a unetbootin bug.
Cheers

Long persistent Puppy/Woof issue.
You can eject the live CD without savefile (pfix=ram).
But once you load the savefile, the live CD cannot eject.

Japanese versions and LupQ have modified inird so that we can eject the live CD anycase if the RAM is enough.

I've tried unetbootin and the Universal USB Installer from pendrivelinux (which specifically supports 5.1.1, which I assume this is similar to). Both produce the exact same error.

Yes, I've verified the files on the card to be identical to the corresponding files in the downloaded ISO (which I also re-downloaded just to make sure). I've also attempted to place all of the files onto the root of my C:\ drive in Windows -- it also fails, but with a new message ("failed to find boot partition").

What's going on? Is it the "SCSI" in the filename? Isn't that just the normal build with an extra feature? It won't boot...

Yes, verifying that 5.1.1 works fine... but the browser is HORRIBLE. gmail.com or www.gmail.com fail miserably, the scroll bar disappears randomly, and whatnot. What is this "Midori" nonsense as default? XD

Thank goodness I caught that before my MOM used the computer... *gulp*

Bye Bye XineDVD.

It crashed on me a couple of times, right out of X. We will just stay with our strengths.
I trust that it will still be available through Quickpet or PPM. It

Yes. The best version we can get. Speaking of which--would anyone like to try compiling Xine in luci-238, etc.?

midori is meant to be an internal browser for very limited purposes. When you start it from the menu there should be a warning message. There is a full version in the puppy Package Manager if you like midori Wink

The first tiem you click the browse icon on the desktop youa re asked to choose a real browser!

It is the matter of the developers who provide multiple window managers in their distribution.

LOL. That's the best one ever shinobar. I am still laughing.

But I do think Menu -> Desktop Settings -> WM Switcher will always say what window manager is running.
