Booted live cd
probe detected 1024x768 screen
sound = ok
auto connect to internet =ok
seamonkey-2.4 = ok
setup printer = ok

next
full install to ext4 partition
probe detected 1024x768 screen
sound = ok
auto connect to internet - did not work on boot of full install, however, did work on boot of live cd - strange
seamonkey-2.4 = ok
setup printer = ok

shutdown and rebooted = no problems on shutdown - reboot clean

added pets from my save partition and have not encountered any problems at this point.

Working great for me.

Java in SLACKO
I have already reported on QuickPET issue in its Menu.

Here's an issue with PPM to add JAVA to SLACKO. The problem is easy installation issues because of the dependency requirement.

It would be nice to know how I should proceed to install JAVA in Slacko. Here's what happened to JRE.

Just made a frugal install of B5 and have the following observations (hope some of it may help):

1. No need any more for acpi=force in Grub nor 01micko's acpi.pet to make a shutdown. Good news.

2. Installed Opera from slickpet but it isn't seen in the Change Browser Default menu selection.

3. And installing Browser-default from slickpet still suggests it's to be found other than where it is ie in Utility.

4. Trivial typo in slickpet
Quote:
Transmissiom
.

5. I understand the reason why 01Micko doesn't want to put dependancies in slickpet (chromium 15 is still there by the way) but when I tried to install Chromium 16.0.881-slacko instead from slickpet (or at DaveS's suggestion using Playdayz's version from the forum...but I think they are the same though) this time it doesn't tell me I need any dependancies but still won't run, despite appearing in the Default Browser list. From the cmd line it reports
Quote:
Illegal Instruction.

What is it missing??

6. And if some kind soul could look into why OOoLight.sfs (see http://download.ooolight.org/) isn't recognised in B5 but is in for example Puppy528 that would be really appreciated.

Many thanks

I left slacko running for a few hours, and when I returned:

"What is DGmod?" Does it come with something in SLACKO that I'm missing?

I welcome advice or assistance.

Thanks in advance

It's the new default jwm theme. It resembles what happens when your laptop video chip needs reseating.

Hi Mick,

KDE 4.5.5 desktop, installed with PPM, still works with Slacko, although many bugs ie plasma, Shutdown and Panel items don't work.

Shutdown problem is easily corrected by installing radky's PupShutdown, others are more difficult to correct. Hopefully, someone will develop a fully operational KDE 4.5.5 sfs after Slacko is final. However, not I since that's way above my skill level.

Cheers,
Jim

Thanks Jim.. actually I have KDE running nicely in my full install of one of the very early slacko alphas.. I use it for kernel compiling.

Cool

My file system is behaving erratically
At the moment I have saved a txt file in root, that is saving but not appearing.
There are other instances - this was not happening in B4
Shocked

The file was a system report from this excellent system reporting pet
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02503

Also from Barrys blog - New JWM could be tested . . .
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02507

The fishies are after me Wink

The fishes are giggling at me again Rolling Eyes

gcmartin,

I have jre 1.6.0.27 as an sfs which I load and it causes no problems. maybe that's the way to go. Can't be sure but I think it came from Barrys site.

The point being I have it in /mnt/home and that way whichever iso I'm using can load it.

Mick,

No real issues but I did notice a slight icon mouse 'focus' issue sometimes. i.e. click on icon on desktop and nothing happens unless I'm dead centre of icon.
