I don't do SW, surely everyone knows that? If you don't live in the UK, I would expect other contributors to make similar offers as many also have old real modems sitting on their shelves gathering dust.

PostPosted: Sat 15 Oct 2011, 11:59    Post subject: Problems with Video behavior  

I have a X2 with 2 DVD recorders.

When I insert a DVD disk in DVD player #2, an icon pops to the desktop for that player. When I'm ready to eject, I used to be able to right-click and select eject. This ONLY opens DVD #1. It does NOT eject the device its suppose to. This is obviously broken.

With all of the past FATDOGs, i could put a DVD disk in DVD #2 and i could start the player and click the DVD button and it would start the DVD Video in player #2. Now that doesn't happen. In fact, I cannot get the desktop player to behave for multimedia the way it used to.

Has there been a change in the philosophy of video players or DVD use in FATDOG that we should know or is there something wrong?

Further, to provide useful information to you, what would you want us to use to report back to you?

Having some interestingly different hardware behavior from 520-1 to 522
Thanks.

Jim,
The command to start vlc from command line is vlc.sh. It's right there in your screenshot, the Exec line, but yeah I agree it's a bit difficult to read because of the other characters.
Try to open the same file with xine.sh, if it can be opened by xine but not by vlc, the problem is mostly access rights (ie, spot cannot read the file). Give read permission to "Others" through ROX, and it should work.

cheers!


thanks, got it.

Jim,

You must of downloaded that pet a while ago. I originally tried to get vlc running as spot, but kept running into problems so I recompiled it to run as root. Download the pet again.


Kirk, yes old pet will get new one and try. thanks

Subject description: its ok
 

hello jamesbond

thank you for explaining to me the use of a usb modem with fatdog64.

its ok. the reason i wondered is where i live we have power outages

all the time. so if i use a laptop with a usb modem i can still connect

as long as the laptops battery is charged. besides the canopy i had

just did not connect and i got tired of calling for their assistance.

the only other option i had was go to the usb modem.

i use puppy mostly as a secure live cd.

wary 2 is nice so i will just use that.

thank you again.

timremy

Hi Kirk,

Don't know if you want this but I compiled Psync as 64bit.

Psync uses ntpdate which I recompiled in 64bit.

I tested it out and seems to work OK to sync the time.

Made myself an FD64 wallpaper, simple and unfussy.

Kirk, jamesbond: I took the liberty of using your logo from Fatdog's homepage and adding to it, i hope you don't mind.

It's here in two sizes if anyone else wants one...

I'm testing a Live media with 2 DVD recorders attach to system without a HDD. I have 3 items to share

One
Has anyone else noticed that ROXfiler is "scanning" every 2 seconds? This is not occurring on my 5.11 Fatdog. (See attaach pic)

Two
And, there is a new behavior of DVD use with desktop icon for DVD player.

My system boots its LIve media and assigns the boot drive as /dev/sr0.
In the past, I have put selected folders-files on tbe boot media, which also has the save-session files used at boot-time. The FATDOG 5.11 and earlier FATDOGs would start playback of video DVDs from the 2nd DVD (/dev/sr1), always. Should be obvious why the system was designed that way. ("because its not the boot DVD device")

Now, it does NOT work that way anymore. The system now INSISTs on using /dev/sr0 for playback of videos. This forces removal of the boot material.

Dont know what's changed, but is there any instructions someone can give to permanently set the system to use /dev/sr1 when there are 2 DVD drives in the system?

The system appears to be ejecting properly now, though.

Three
  1. I noticed that Barry is including 2 tools for reporting problems that were obtained from TaZOC; namely Report-Video-GLX and sys-info.
  2. JamesBond, last year, produced a tool for reporting.
  3. I have used a method of reporting to you in the past using a combo of video and Hardinfo.
I would like to use a tool that you feel is best for providing good information to you on the system layout and behavior. Since each of these methods provides and lays our information differently, I was wondering if it would make your effort easier, either in review or when helping, if we use a method that you prefer.

Which method would make your life easiest for us to use when reporting system behavior for FATDOG? If it doesn't make a difference, I'll continue reporting as I had in the past.

Thanks in advance.

Hi all

Love the new fatdog, everything works out of the box, nice to see Psip 1.2 included, (didnt even have to change the audio settings it just worked straight away Laughing )

A very good selection of libs in the devx, and the source code is included as well.

one fly in the ointment is the inclusion of the nouveau driver, but this was soon removed and replaced with the nVidia one. (thanks to catdude on psip talking me through it Laughing )

I have been busy pimping it up to how I want it Laughing Thanks to DaveS for the howto on the launchbars.

Heres a couple of screen shots

Thanks
Don

I accidentally deleted squashfs.ko from /lib while trying to remove unnecessary modules but I can still boot into fatdog64-521 desktop so do I need it because I saw during the loading boot up screen that it was looking for it?

If so, how do I get it back? I originally thought there was a backup file at /initrd but it's not there.
