Suddenly I find that Skype and retrovol are broken. I think that the broken retrovol crashes Skype when it is opened.

Here is the result when retrovol is run from terminal:

# retrovol
retrovol: hcontrol.c:573: snd_hctl_load: Assertion `hctl->count == 0' failed.
Aborted

Using the Alsa Sound Wizard I can select the correct driver and configure it but at the sound test I see this error at terminal:

Amixer: Mixer attach default error: No such file or directory

Consequently there is no sound volume.

LATER: Oh, and the retrovol tray icon has disappeared. I think we need something more retro than retrovol that works reliably!

Hi,

I was initially very pleased with this lucid pup and spent a lot of time setting it up.

But suddenly I lost all sound. I have tried endlessly cycling between the Alsa wizard and Alsa mixer and several times succeeding in getting the sound back. Unfortunately the sound disappears again at shutdown.

Perhaps it is all down to my IBM T42 thinkpad

I am now going to wipe this Lupu 527 off my drives and wait until this or another pup comes along that is stable.

Regards Tony

If this is a frugal install of Puppy.
Run a file system check.
There is a chance the file system got corrupted.
Did you uninstall any audio programs before this happened?

Best news yet. RoW will rejoice. Always was the best but Qualcomm was ostrich-like. Mr Webster was the real culprit, though.
Almost as perverse as punters who insist on using Puppy with multi-core processors and Intel graphics! Not as if the world's best chip designers aren't 'local' to the plaintiffs.


No, the problem is internationalization of the dictionaries that must be used and the different ways the operating systems identify.

Anyway were offtopic here, keep an eye on the Eudora thread in coming months (say 6).

New maybe problem folks to check on, I think.

521rc. update a frugal install.

Our active interfaces (globe and screen) in the tray is playing up.

Well the data storage it displays is anyway, the month readings it's giving are badly out, showing last week's only rx and tx is six figures. Was very different before update.

Hopefully it's an update problem only, but this didn't happen with earlier updates.

While were here, is there anyway to have the reset to zero ocurr on a set day rather than the first of the month?

Otherwise the rc I find sound.

regards
scsijon

If you want to use a USB Wifi device *and* you want to boot Puppy from a USB disk with ext3 or ext4 filesystem, then you should

1. Install Puppy to the USB drive
2. Boot the USB Drive
3. *DO NOT* Set up networking but immediately shut down and create a save file.
4. Then reboot Puppy and set up networking. This way it will be persistent.

solved missing libraries reported above -
i installed ati-fglxrx-10.10-luicd.pet yesterday and did not work on my equipment - received segmentation fault when tried to run glxgears - i have ati-radeon mobility M6LY card and the one i installed was apparently for newer equipment

i checked all the libraries reported missing above and found they were associated with the newer ati card

sorry for false report - should have checked further before reporting

Playdayz - looking great, and downloading soon to check it out. (Though I am beginning to think you are in league with the CD manufacturers)

Question...

Does that apply only to the release candidate OR to Lucid in general (5.11+)? If broadly applicable, I might suggest that information be presented up front - now, if memory serves, a user is encouraged to setup their internet connection almost immediately. Most users (myself included) will probably do that before creating the first savefile. Thank your for your efforts on this release.

Quick manual upgrade from 521 to 522 on my main Linux box. Other than the jumbled up icons, everything appears to have upgraded fine. Same JWM, wallpaper and Pwidgets on desktop as before upgrade.

Nvidia driver still working..... Smile

# glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
8904 frames in 5.0 seconds
16128 frames in 5.0 seconds
14901 frames in 5.0 seconds
14219 frames in 5.0 seconds
Looking good........ Smile

That's what I thought too, so there is a message on the first run screen. I don't actually know how prevalent it is--I discovered it today, much to my delight Mad

Looking good playdays
