On command line it asks for a password = there is none so I press Enter. My current guess is that X is freezing because mount prompts for input but can't get through X.

Change your script to
Code:
#!/bin/bash
mount.cifs //192.168.1.101/DadE /mnt/network/STUDY/DadE -o username=guest,guest

Mick, just a heads up in case it is a woof thing that may affect future versions of Slacko http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=574645#574645

I just wanted to thank micko01 for his incredible work and say that I am very impressed with slacko. Big Thumbs Up.

However on these boot issues with CD i cannot help muchin testing, because I don't use CD's anymore. Frugal installs to HD are so easy and fast. Is it too far fetched to say that most testers and developers don't burn loads of CD'S anymore? So there *might* be less testing in this area?

What I noticed is, that the step in the boot process where it says "Looking for Puppy files ..." seems to take more time now on my computer and there are red dots appearing. Was there a change somewhere? Can anyone point out (link?) what has been changed and where?

Thanks
emil

Dave,

It's ok, I have a custom /etc/fonts/, thanks to Iguleder.

Emil,

Thanks. As for CD, I boot all machines that I have access to with if they are equipped with a CD drive. A couple of older ones included. CD is not the issue.

In woof, Barry is doing a more thorough search for puppy files to make it more reliable at a cost of speed, this occurs in frugals and CD boots. I think there is a pfix parameter that can speed up frugal boots pointing to the save file location that you can add to your kernel line.
This change was introduced early this year, I would need to do some digging to get you a link.

Big Thumbs Up


Big claws up from me too.

For the fully baked, I am working on a new version of YAP for Slacko
- which of course will be of no use to anyone even partially sane (unless modified to spaghetti monster or Church of the Subgenius links etc)
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/BuddhistYAP

Yap is for setting up a laptop or computer as a virtual shrine.
I have started doing a 'wrathful practice' - which in traditional vajrayana is secret because it involves blood drinking monsters (or root users as some penguins would have it)
However in Yinyana, which is my style of Buddhism, we don't have any secrets worth repeating.

As soon as I have it running, will post.
Good karma is dedicated to Micko.
All problems are as usual the fault of official Puppy scapegoat (bugman)
OM YA HA HUM (translation: have a nice day)

Lobster,

As a member of the "League against cruelty to Bugman" you have been noted.

Any more and it's 10mins simmer and then seafood sauce. Laughing

Despite everything.

Otropogo,

found this:-

Quote:
The bad eip value is a hardware issue. It may be a NIC problem, or a pci add-on controller issue.

The kernel panics, as it is unable to detect or use the piece of hardware correctly using the base kernel modules. Most likely it is an issue with the kernel being able to set the pci address, or PNP is set in the bios.

Sometimes there is a conflict with another slot, especially in systems that share resources between slots. You used to see this a lot with pci slots next to isa slots, where the resources were shared. Or, a pci slot next to the agp slot. Moving the pci card to another slot might solve the issue, resolving the apparent conflict.


Maybe swapping a card about may help the issue. Confused

Other stuff I found said to unplug any USB device before booting and hotplug afterwards. inc. usb mouse!

Any thoughts on what I can check to see what's the matter with Slacko and my Netgear WN111v2? It's wierd that on this distro I'm getting performance not much quicker than dialup whereas on all of the versions of Lupu the performance has been close to that of XP. I suspect it's possibly something to do with the drivers or the newer kernel version.

I had been comparing it to Lupu 528, which was a little unfair as that version was optomised for i686+ systems but even Lupu 525 is considerably quicker online than Slacko. The good wireless performance had been the reason why I decided to use Puppy rather than one of the more mainstream distros.

Other than the disappointing wireless performance, Slacko has run well on the Pentium D machine and seems to be running well on the K6 once I installed the i486 version of FFMPEG. Even Sea Monkey is starting to grow on me.

There has definitely been a change in recent Puppies. Do you have any devices like printers turned on during bootup?

Also, please post your GRUB menu.lst entry. There may be ways to optimize it.

I am on a machine with 11 usb and card slots Shocked
my grub entry for slacko is

Code:
title slacko(on /dev/sda3)
  root (hd0,2)
  kernel /slacko/vmlinuz psubdir=slacko pfix=ram ro vga=normal
  initrd /slacko/initrd.gz


Cool emil
