Recordmydesktop works, it needs the devx loaded for python, Gtk-RecordMyDesktop-0.3.8-Lucid.pet and it needs libjack for sound libjack-0.0.23.pet

Note to Barry Kauler....

I don't know if this is significant but I found two gtkhash
pet packages made by tuuxx
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=711057642&t=32700
that cause recent puppies such as Racy and Slacko
to not install some pets properly.
...


ttuuxxx's gtkhash would not install for me with woof. I later discovered that his pet contains a .config/rox.sourceforge.net/SendTo folder that is not symlinked while, in recent puppies, that folder is symlinked to the .config/rox.sourceforge.net/OpenWith folder. This is what is causing the breaking of other Right-click options in Rox-Filer. I have been informed, by another forum member that the SendTo folder should not be a symlink. However, woof builds recent pups with this directory-structure.

PostPosted: Sat 10 Dec 2011, 20:39    Post subject: incomplete USB3 support, mystery filesystem error messages  

Following a private suggestion for solving my Puppy USB3 problems, I've just downloaded and tried Racy 5.2.2_k3.1 in LiveCD mode, primarily to test its native USB3 support.

It will recognized and mount devices on the USB3 expresscard port on my laptop without any error messages. However, when I copy files on the ntfs Goflex drive (whether on the USB3 port or on USB2), it pops up the following error message in red text:
Quote:

Operation not supported; failed to copy /mnt/sdxx/xxxx.jpg


In fact, the file is copied successfully, and can also be deleted again. However, this popup occurs every time on both of my PCs.

When I mount this drive on USB2 or USB3 using Slacko_5.29.6, there is no such error message.

In order for the USB3 devices to be recognized by Racy 5.2.2, they must be attached and powered up at bootup. And if removed and reattached after initial recognition, they aren't recognized again. There's no such problem with the USB2 port.

Subject description: compiling does not work
 

I have tried to compile claws-mail 3.7.10cvs112 but "make" fails:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=588483

The error message when compiling
http://pastebin.com/vDp3w9nH

When discussing this in the claws-mail irc channel, I got the hint that

when building, according to the pc file, i believe it expects to find gdkpixbuf.h here: /usr/include/gtk-2.0/include/gdkpixbuf.h
...what is true is that gdkpixbuf.h is not in the position that the pc file reports it to be


this is my gtk+-2.0.pc :
http://pastebin.com/6Xmci6Jh

Code:
# cat /usr/lib/pkgconfig/gtk+-2.0.pc
prefix=/usr
exec_prefix=${prefix}
libdir=${exec_prefix}/lib
includedir=${prefix}/include
target=x11

gtk_binary_version=2.10.0
gtk_host=i486-t2-linux-gnu

Name: GTK+
Description: GTK+ Graphical UI Library (${target} target)
Version: 2.20.1
Requires: gdk-${target}-2.0 atk cairo gio-2.0 pangoft2
Libs: -L${libdir} -lgtk-${target}-2.0
Cflags: -I${includedir}/gtk-2.0



Can this be a racy problem or is it something else?

That simply means the permissions were not maintainted - file permissions are lost when copying from ext2/ext3/etc to NTFS or FAT partitions... It is nothing to worry about in most cases...

nvidia-glx-sdl-290.10.sfs runs on Racy-522.
Seems stable and the gimp-2.7.x problem disappeared.

Right. But I think it is a woof bug.
The 'silent' option required in /bin/mount.
At line 52:

ntfs-3g $CMDPRMS -o umask=0,no_def_opts,silent 2>/tmp/ntfsmnterr${MYPID}.txt

Thanks for the explanation.

But perhaps I should add that the file copies that evoked the "operation unsupported copy failed" popup were all from the ntfs drive to itself, NOT from ext2/ext3 to ntfs. I was merely making a second copy on the original ntfs drive.

Thanks for your comment. On reviewing you url above, I noted the following comment.

Quote:
The ntfs-3g-2010.3.6-i386.pet, by ttuuxxx, solved the error message problem for me.


And I wonder whether this pet is usable in lupu 5.2.8, and if so, whether it will fix the intermittent problem I have in lupu of the ntfs file system refusing to mount except in read-only mode?

If so, this would allow me to use USB3 reasonably well in 5.2.8 with the USB3 pet installed.

The copy-error reported by otropogo also exists in the Racy-based Saluki. The error message is faulty, becuase the file does actually get copied over.
Shinobar's method of hacking /bin/mount has been confirmed to fix the problem. Thanks, Shinobar.
Attached is a pet with Shinobar's fix.

Thanks Tman, Shinobar.

Yes, the pet fixed the spurious copy error message.

PostPosted: Sun 11 Dec 2011, 17:15    Post subject: pmount options inactive, Intel boot problem  

Am unable to access the alternative format for the Pmount window via the preferences tab, so no unified window or MUT is available.

On my desktop machine, the Intel D865GLC with ATI X1550 video adapter, I'm also unable to boot reliably (rarely it does work) from the liveCD/2fs file without entering

Code:
puppy acpi=off


at the boot prompt

On the other hand, have you tried EudoraOSE yet? Still the choice of professionals!

I've been bashing on about it for some years now, but as with most things, folks are too busy ploughing their own furrow & co.
Things would get a whole lot better if someone from the IT fraternity could bend the ear of BK ! The SM suite is like a giant millstone. There are two essential essentials in an OS - a good reliable browser and an excellent email client. After that, it's all horses & courses.
