Testing RC2 and RC2-SCSI-PAE:
TestI RC2 :
Good DD-Live -> azerty Fr-fr -> Nvidia nv -> pupsave -> shutdown
TestII RC2 (Nvidia driver):
Quickpet -> driver -> Nvidia > download : OK ... etc... -> but not installed
1) shutdown -> exit to prompt -> Xorgwizard : "command not found " ->
Test III :
reboot on the pupsave -> Menu -> Setup -> Xorg Video Wizard -> XorgWizard : OK... -> glxgears : OK
-------------------------------------
Tests RC2-SCSI-PAE :
CD-Live : OK -> pupsave (sda3) : OK -> reboot ..
Quickpet -> driver -> Nvidia -> download : OK but the red "failed to install "
Is it possible to get a link in order to use wget and download Nvidia driver ?
It seems to me that "275-28--K2.6.39.4s pet" is not a good driver for my card.
I tried it directly without any sucess
But Nvidia driver (RC2 Test II and III) is good. Is it the same "275-28--K2.6.39.4s pet" ?

Haha!

ok, thanks 8-bit, mavrothal.. I get it Wink .. Barry didn't Sad .. ah well!

I never did like the wrapper for yaf-splash. I was kind of the instigator for gtkdialog-splash in an early version of quickpet, using calls to gtkdialog with a temporary gtkrc, a technique I learned of Sigmund. Mave (forum member) ran with it and created gtkdialog-splash, for which Barry made a wrapper for the original yaf-splash, mainly because yaf-splash can't handle utf-8.. my original reason for using a custom splash. Oh well.. what goes around comes around Laughing

Thanks guys.

Yeah, must be something stupid I did... it's tricky (though it shouldn't be Rolling Eyes ) with 2 kernel versions with different driver versions.

Tasgarth, does your card need a later driver? The 275 for pae kernel is "certified', where others (at the time of compile) were not. I think I'll take no notice of proprietary "certification" in the future!

Simple solution, different kernel, same driver version. (latest Wink )

Confirmed nvidia-glx-sdl-285.05.09-slacko.sfs works both on Slacko-RC2 and on Slacko-RC2++.

Thank you shinobar!
edit...............................
Ignore the following, /sbin/pup_event_frontend_d works as it is.
The only change then is to replace /usr/bin/gtkdialog-splash with the one shinobar supplied a few posts up.
So again, ignore the rest of this post.

That got us part way, but the line that gets the pid of yaf-splash is still wrong.

So here are the changes in /sbin/pup_event_frontend_d.

change line 522 from "YAFPID=$!" without the quotes to " YAFPID=`pidof "yaf-splash"`" ,again without the end quotes.

That one line change and the use of the "gtkdialog-splash" file shinobar so kindly provided should take care of at least having that splash message disappear when the save is complete.

Hi 01micko

as posted in the rc1 thread, Alsawizard is not working! was fine in the beta's.



This has been confirmed by 4 people in puppy chat. Please check yourself.

Quite a biggy as some people need to run it to get sound.

cheers 666philb

Despite the helpful little panel that springs up warning about SiS chipset issues, neither 'Yes' + dedicated drivers nor 'No' produces an XOrg picture. VESA works, though. This continues to be the only variant, or any other distro including Slackcentral, that refuses to detect/work with the SiS Mirage chipset. There must be a simple answer somewhere? Sadly not my department to understand these matters.

Retrovol settings are half-cock: please turn everything ON by default. Notwithstanding, Woofwoof still doesn't work when I turn up the wick. I noticed that this stopped working on new Wary and reported it. Must be a Woof issue?

Confirm that ALSAWizard not working, vide supra.

Third time of asking: please can the localisation panel be cast with consistency: presently, we have US peripherals with Perth time. Is it asking too much to settle on GMT, even for an American developer! That does not make things easy for Brits if that causes mental strife for Yankies because we are on BST right now.

I did a manual frugal install to a 4gb flash drive which had been
formatted ext4,boot flag set, and grub4dos installed.
I installed devx + kernel source sfs + NVIDIA-Linux-x86-285.05.09.run

Sat 22 Oct 2011 Operating System: Slacko Puppy-5.2.97 Linux 2.6.39.4

X Server: Xorg Driver: nvidia
X.Org version: 1.9.5
dimensions: 1920x1080 pixels (524x292 millimeters)
depth of root window: 24 planes


AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1045T Processor

I had to choose vesa at a low resolution on first bootup but sound and
wired network were good.
RC2++ is working good so far.

EDIT:
I've been playing for a few hours with rc2++ and it's working well, I added wbar to it which I like.

Subject description: what is this?
 

I must admit that I haven't been keeping up on things.

Is this supposed to be a stable release or some sort ov "beta"?

EDIT:Thanks, Lobster, for the quick reply.

Thanks,
*one

Bring it on! Laughing

The faster it is released, the better it is for the following releases, which will iron out all those small annoying bugs Puppy had in all its .0 versions.

I'm doing some porting work at the moment with the long-term goal of porting Puppy to any architecture, maybe I could test this on Slacko.

I'm writing build scripts for all the "common" packages and all the applications/window manager/etc' are ready - it is possible to build my latest puplet's desktop from source, on top of any wooflet that has a kernel X, GTK, CUPS, etc' - just the basics.

Now I'm improving it, so all the PET packages Puppy depends on can be built too. I have about half of all the build scripts ready, the rest are so old (they originate in Puppy 2.x) you can't build them on today's Puppy - that's something I'll have to find a way around.

This way, we can take x86_64 or ARM packages from Slackware, Debian, etc', as we did so far, but instead of relying on the x86 PET packages, all of them can be built on top of that base automatically, which means ... we'll be able to port 5.3 to ... anything. Cool

So, it goes like this:
1) We take Slacko, the way it is.
2) We replace the string "i486" with "x86_64" Laughing
3) We build a 64-bit Slacko with 32-bit compatibility libraries
4) We build 64-bit versions of all the 32-bit packages in Slacko
5) We dump the 32-bit libraries
6) A 64-bit native Slacko64 Cool

We could also use a cross-compiler (or just build all those packages inside a 64-bit Slackware, then rebuild in Slacko).

Anyway, time for me to shut up.

Good job, 01micko - running Slacko on my NVIDIA machine and it works 100%.
