So, I'm back to thinking it's not about the extra sfs files. I had the crash 3 more times with just a lupusave.2fs and no sfs files loaded (except of course the base lupu528.sfs).

I'm getting a little stressed trying to chase this down. Going to take a few days break from it, I'll check back in a few days after I've relaxed some.

Tom

P.S. Still has never crashed this way when clean booted without any save file created.

My sound worked fine for at least a few days of rebooting. But my sound just broke after the last reboot my computer and it seems like it is somehow related to these other problems. X did crash once so it might of been involved. My sound card is different then the other cards listed, so I included my full lspci. The only thing I've done, as far as I know, is install the following software and surf the web. This is my configuration, if you need any other information let me know. I tried running alsoconfig after my sound broke and included its output. If you need anything else let me know.

EDIT: I tried pfix=clean & pfix=purge but they didn't fix the problem. My usb sound adapter seems to work though.

PostPosted: Thu 01 Sep 2011, 03:52    Post_subject: The End  

OK, after a week of fighting it, I give up. I have no clue where the issue really is. It just crashed out totally without save file (for the last few days I've been running without save file because it improves stability, though that doesn't seem to be enough to stop whatever's happening. So for now, I'm just going back to getting things done in older puppy versions. At the moment I'm in MyWolfe0.28. Will also be running 4.21 and 4.31. Maybe I'll give wary a serious spin...

Sub_title: I have the same problem.
 

I have the same problem. I have same audio chip. Flash crashes randomly on all 3 browsers.

Had to do alsaconf to re-search sound card.

Network is now looking for a wlan. I uncheck wireless box as i am plugged in, and the setting doesn't take. So, eth and wlan bounces to getting ip and loosing it.

I am running lhp503g.

So, my questions is: could someone give me a link to a pet file for the latest nvidia driver for lighthouse puppy? They have 280.13 now, but the newest version I could find was 173...

Could someone give me a link to a pet file for the latest version of flash for lighthouse puppy?

Same thing, they have new stuff, and we can't upgrade because of compatability with puppy, unless someone posts uptodate pets.

hello
i have the same problem
I'm doing some compilations of VLC. And i thought it was a problem related to this but i've done some tests and i conclude it is not. Whatever i do, installing flash or not, sound disappears after some reboots. I do a savefile where my sound works and as soons as it disappear, i reload this savefile and work with it until sound crash, this is not very cosy. If you want, i can do some tests for you

Here's how I overcame the problem, only now, sessions are saved to a 3fs savefile stored on my ext2 formatted flash-drive- syslinux the bootloader. In other words, and I've been through several boots since, saves are no longer carried out while in X.

moijdikssekool, I speak of the Wink Xwindows GUI. The system executes that save after closing JWM/Openbox.

in fact you test sound before save? If it doesn't work, you don't save and loose modifiactions done since the last save, that'it? That's what i do, a bit boring

ok. And is there a possibility to reload the last pupsave without rebooting the PC?

That, I wouldn't suggest. I'd boot: pfix=ram and have a backup overwrite your main file from a live run. I keep a working spare on another partition and when needed, simply drag it in to overwrite the existing save.

OK, based on Semme's post, I duplicated his "fix" and am testing it. Been running for hours today, no crash. I'm going to run it for a few days this way to see what the results are.

For the purposes of this thread I supply a more clear description of what he did:
Code:

Menu->System->Puppy Event manager
   Save Session tab, set save interval to 0 (disable)
   Hit [OK] to close/finish 

   Delete the save icon from desktop to prevent accidentally hitting it.
   
   Reboot to ensure change is permanent, as it will not get saved anymore until reboot.


If this works, the crash appears to be a problem of the save going off when there is very little free ram (the situation that existed every time it previously crashed). If it crashes and doesn't break the save file, then the problem is different but this prevents it from getting forced out to save file. Either way, it will be a key piece of tracking down the actual problem.

Another post about alsa:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=71637

Running alsa wizard kills the sound and the sound icon. Booting from a pupsave, no sound. OK booting pfix=ram.

This is the sort of regression you get when piling large numbers of unnecessary changes into a bug fix revision. Sorry for the editorial comment. BTW I am running 5.2.6 on another machine and have seen no alsa problem with it. So, something between 5.2.6 and 5.2.8...

Well, I'm up to like 10 hours running without the crash that I could so reliably produce without semme's workaround with the session saves...

Maybe the thread should be renamed to "session save bug" Wink

I'm still going to give it a couple more days before I really decide that this has done it.
