just installed virtualbox from the binaries package on their website. it requires devx but I must say it's getting easier. In older puppy versions you had to track down kernel headers. any way just downloaded the one from the bottom of the list marked all distributions on the amd64 side(~70MB). I know a pet package would be much better but ...

Many thanks to WillM, going to try ghasher just as soon as I finish this post.

PostPosted: Sat 24 Sep 2011, 22:22    Post subject: md5 sum  

thanks @WillM and @gcmartin, both check sums worked, although i have no idea how to add either of them to the right click menu despite a little searching - the search function on this BB forum won't let me do an enclose in quotes search and the AND function isn't exclusive, so i got hundreds of hundreds of posts/topics. i'll have to explore this phpBB's eccentricities a little more to hone in. the real problem, of course, is my incomplete knowledge of the organization of the Linux file system, et al. i'm workin' on it.

in the meantime setting up a VirtualBox has been set back by my swapping from a live CD which (seems to have run out of room and let all my additions/downloads perish in RAM on a reboot) to a pendrive. since my eventual goal is to have a minimal base OS host system and do most of my day-to-day computing chores in guests, the ever increasing size of the saved sessions is perplexing and eating up storage space. so i'm pulling back to learn how Puppy (and Bigdog64 or LIghthouse or ...) functions together. slowly, with interruptions.

more mind work than i anticipated but que sera sera...

regards, jon

Just tried ghasher, works great! also discovered phash while fooling around. how long has that been there? to think I've been typing md5sum at the Command Line all this time.

Oh by the way has anybody else noticed xterm adding "[C" (without quotes) to the end of the command when you use <alt-right arrow> for command line completion. Haven't noticed that before, kinda strange.

Anyway thanks guys for a great distro! Fatdog 64 is truly awesome! I've been using it since version 5.0.0 and have had no problems so far. Fatdog is definitely my favorite Operating System and it just keeps getting better. Please keep up the good work.

@jg.fw.tx glad we could help. And, have you noticed at the top of your browser screen "You have a message"?

Hope this helps

The steps you followed are similar to what was given me earlier this year by an undisclosed forum member.

Maybe you or he can open a new forum thread that provides PETs and SFSs for all 64bit users.

Then, we can begin discussions and share experiences that will be useful to all. Excepting tor the times when I on the net with my standalone 64bit system, it is largely sitting idle. This VB or VM effort allows me to begin putting that PCs resources to greater usefulness.

Looking forward....Help!

PostPosted: Sun 25 Sep 2011, 11:57    Post subject: opera pet  

Just want to report that while using opera (from Fatdog64 pet) and loading some Flash and/or Javascript-rich page (such as Gmail), processor usage suddenly climbed continuously. This happened both in Openbox and JWM.

Hope that there are Opera users here who can test, too. (One beauty of using Opera is that it keeps the root user, so I can save files in locations that I want.)

hello raffy

I installed Opera 11.51 from the Ubuntu 64 .deb, from the Opera website, and it seems to work normally, although I have not used it very much. I already had QT which came with VLC

The pet looks like version 11.0. Given the buggy tradition of Opera, I would suggest avoiding any .0 version!

Since flash can play video, it can cause high cpu load depending on the content.

OK, so it's now time to upgrade this Opera. Thanks for the quick reply. Smile

(PS - No, there was no large Flash video running, just small bits of ads, which should be within the powers of AMD Fusion E-350 to play normally.)

Subject description: Still not working
 

kirk

I tried your suggestion finally, (I was traveling in Germany)

Quote:
Quote:
a reboot still has non-mounted sdb1.


Click on /etc/rc.d/rc.local. It should look like this:

Code:
#this file called from rc.sysinit
#you can edit this file
#When firewall is installed, will append lines to this file...
#
# If you need to change the scaling governor from the default "ondemand" uncomment le lines below
#modeprobe cpufreq_performance
#ONLINECPUS=$(cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/online | sed "s/-/ /")
#CPUPATH=/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu
#for cpu in $(seq $ONLINECPUS); do
# CPUFREQ=${CPUPATH}${cpu}/cpufreq
# if [ -d $CPUFREQ ]; then
# echo "performance" > $CPUFREQ/scaling_governor
# fi
#done

mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/sdb1


The last line is the important one. Also make sure the folder /mnt/sdb1 exists.


the last line was not present. So I pasted it in and saved.
When I rebooted, X did not start. I tried at the back scree terminal xwin, but still no X. It was error 111.

Puppy is so cool, I popped in my USB key, booted to the frugal 528 installation I have on there, opened up sda4 on the SSD where fatpuppy resides, removed the line, and now it boots normally.

I also checked and mnt/sdb1 does exist.
On my 528 install I used startmount to automount sdb1 and start firefox-and this works fine. Is startmount available for fatpuppy. I didn't see it in the list of packages.

Thanks
-Jay

Subject description: alsa error
 

Now my sound is flaking out. It used to work.

I get this error when using Audacious

snd_pcm_hw_params_set_channels failed: Invalid argument.

When I go to the alsa mixer, the master channel is up, and the correct sound card is now selected (a Soundblaster Audigy 1).

Any ideas?

Thanks
Jay

Thought I'd report on Fatdog64_520:

Frugal manual install to ext4 USB flash drive. Booted to desktop successfully.

Initial boot (no save file): Wasn't able to use Frisbee to configure for WPA2 encryption for my wireless router, had to use Network Manager. Unable to disable tap-to-click for my touchpad (non-synaptic) with Adjust Touchpad, as expected.

Subsequent boot (with save file): Inserted SD-card into internal ENE card reader; card not mounted. Dmesg seems to detect ENE card reader, but not 2 Gb or 512 Mb cards which do work with Lucid Finlandia 5.28. Audio streaming from Shoutcast over Aurora browser working well.

So far, so good!

EDIT: Forgot to mention that HDD light stays on & HDD spins even though HDD not mounted. Not doing that under 5.28.

EDIT AGAIN: First install was saved to partition. Reinstalled as before but saved to file instead of partition. This time Frisbee connected properly, I may have messed up the first time I tried Frisbee. This time it asked me to set a root password, even though I chose to save unencrypted. We'll see...

That's for setting the root password. It has nothing to do with a encryption.

entropyfoe,

With the sound problem, sometimes it's easier to create a new save file than to figure out what got messed up.

The Puppy Linux dog icon popping up upon start up stating your network status drives me crazy. It's the Microsoft word paperclip all over again -.-

Also, How would I go about getting Wine to run on Fatdog?
