Understanding that some run Live media (CD/DVD), what is a good recommended approach for upgrading nvidia driver so that it carries over when the session is saved to media prior to reboot? I not so sure a SFS is a solution, is it?

Thanks in advance
Edit: Recommedned steps might be a better wording than recommended approach. Sorry.

Since you are approaching "final", just a couple of details mentioned before.
Here they are all together.
1) There is not really any need to restart X at the initial setup if the only thing changed is the timezone
2) The desktop icon fonts look really bad with Xvesa(w/o or w/mesa) at any size (image). Maybe try a more vesa-friendly default font?
3) Xorgvideowizard window does not scale with fonts (image)

Little things, but we not make an even better first impression Cool

Beyond that Slacko RC2 looks really-good on my Mac-VM, 6-year old (V4000) laptop and the XOs Very Happy

Mick,

Psync doesn't display the new DST info as zdump is left out of /usr/bin Sad

Originally Slacko was going to be released in 32 bit and 64 bit
64 bit was dropped . . . maybe after release we could have a 64 bit version . . .?

Slacko ARM is also a great idea
The Raspberry Pi people are trying to find an Alpha board for Puppy
. . . the actual Raspberry Pi boards will be out soon and already we have potential developers and testers getting the hardware.
This is an important step for Puppy - it makes us very mobile and assures us a future on tomorrows energy efficient processors.

Hi 01micko et al,

I am not sure if it should be possible to save two or more different sets of customized desktop icon layouts, but the picture below does show a minor inconsistency.

My regards

Hi Mick,
on Laptop with siliconmotion video:
same results on RC2 as on earlier RC;
running xorgwizard: upon "Silicon* enhancement" box, if answered <YES>, then xorgwizard stops and outputs to prompt without any comment nor message;
see also details here: running an xorgwizards earlier version (i.e. the one from 4.99.1 or wary 514) at that step drives to X working with the smi driver.

/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/siliconmotion_drv.so (109K) seems to be an earlier version than the one (119K) proposed for Xorg 1.7.5 in a previous post.

Cheers, Charlie

Tasgarth, does your card need a later driver? The 275 for pae kernel is "certified'...

No it is not necessary. The shinobar's sfs is good

Yes your Nvidia sfs is good for Rc2 SCSI-PAE. Perhaps a little slower but I'm not sure of this statement.
Thanks

Hi 01micko,

Frugal installation on an ext4 partition is working great including your nvidia-280-13-k2.6.37.6-s.pet, installed via slickpet. However, I installed shinobar’s excellent pupsave config-1.9.9.pet so that a 4fs save file is created and rebooted before installing any other software, also I had to install
hplip_scan-3.11.3.pet so that my scanner is recognized. All software including extras that I’ve added is working fine. The sound volume was a little low which is corrected by changing most Retrovol default settings to maximum.

Extra applications:
Bibletime_lucid-2.7.2a.sfs Bible study
devx_slacko_5.2.97.sfs
jre-1.6.0.27.sfs
LibreOffice-3.4.3_en-US.sfs Office Suite
pupsaveconfig-1.9.9 PupSave personal storage setup
nvidia-280.13-k2.6.37.6-s Configure NVIDIA X Server Settings
hplip_scan-3.11.3 HP scanner drivers
Acrobat_Reader-9.3.3-Lucid Adobe Acrobat Reader PDF application
BibleAnaayzerl-4.1.0 Bible study
edit_sfs-2.1 Edit .sfs files
eSword-9 e-Sword
expositor-a The Expositor's Bible
get_libreoffice-0.10 Get LibreOffice download and install LibreOffice
LHP_sys_info-0.6 LHP System Information & Video Report
Pet_Maker-2.1 Utility to make a PET & SFS
pulpit-c The Pulpit Commentary
PupApps-1.5.6 PupApps launcher
PupClockset-1.6.1 PupClockset manager
PupControl-1.7.5 PupControl panel
PupShutdown-1.7.4 PupShutdown manager
PupSnap-1.6.2 PupSnap screen capture
Startmount-0.5.5 Startmount Mount drives and programs at start
theWord-3.2.1 theWord
wine-1.3.30-i486_v1 Wine Windows Program Loader
pwidgets-2.3.7 Pwidgets tiny desktop apps
firefox-aurora-7.0.1-spup Firefox Aurora Web Browser

It’s so fast and stable that I’ve moved it to the top of my Menu.lst.

Cheers, Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

SlackoRC2++ (slacko-5.2.97-SCSI-PAE-HIGHMEM.iso)

System Info
Fresh frugal install (on NTFS partition)
AMD Athlon64 @2300 MHz, 1Gb RAM
GeForce 6600 @1900x1200 using nv driver, Xorgwizard autodetect working
Haven't got round to testing Nvidia blob yet though.

Audio
Sound is working well in DeaDBeef-0.51, Pmusic, and Flash (Youtube). Same problems with Mplayer as before (which I do not have in THD with the 2.6.37.6 kernel). Browsing the directories using Pmusic is a bit laggy (as previously).

Network / Wireless
My TP-Link TL-WN821Nv3 USB dongle was detected and is working, thanks to the Atheros in-kernel ath9k_htc driver, as well as the now apparently also included appropriate firmware (which is not present in the 2.6.37.6 kernel).

Software
Installed Firefox 7.01 (Aurora): works. DeaDBeef works. Also tested some portable Linux apps (from http://portablelinuxapps.org) which all worked flawlessly (e.g. Peazip 3.9, KeePassX 0.4.3).
E2fsck:ed two old .3fs files from other Puppies just for the hell of it, of course with no issues.

Looking forward to the final release!

  1. Boot Slacko off from the live CD. At this point of time, X can start up with 'nv' driver.
  2. Download nvidia-glx-sdl-285.05.09-slacko.sfs to the top level of the partition or a subdirectory, say '/slacko', where you want to save the session.
    http://shino.pos.to/party/bridge.cgi?puppy/opt/pup5/
  3. Right click the sfs and select sfs_load.
  4. Run xorgwizard. It may automatically take the nvidia driver.
  5. Reboot PC to save the session to the partition you predetermined. I recommend to change folder to say '/slacko'.


Another story, saving the session back to the live CD. Note that I have not tested this approach yet.
  1. Make a live CD with the nvidia-glx-sdl-285.05.09-slacko.sfs. You can do it editing the iso or remaster and burn it without finalization.
  2. Boot Slacko off from this CD.
  3. Load the nvidia-glx-sdl-285.05.09-slacko.sfs on the CD. You can copy the sfs to the hard disk or not.
  4. Reboot PC to save the session back to the CD.

other stuff I forget


You must have been tired.
the file scanpci is not to be found.
The closest I could come was a file in /root/.packages/builtin_files/scanpci that contains two lines of "/usr" and "/usr/bin".

opps.

manual frugal install to ext4 pfix=ram of RC++ without issue on this dual core p6100 hp. continues to auto-detect broadcom wifi driver on wlan0.

multi-sound card continues to appear not to work as it does not save the prior choice each time a movie is played.

continues to use the same name as iirc 4 other pups.

overall very fast and responsive.

Used slickpet to download Cloud and after a reboot I see an icon named Cloud on the desktop which on clicking gives me a set of icons for...dropbox, facebook, gmail etc.
But clicking on any of these app icons does nothing.
Does this work for anyone else?
Frugal install to a HDD.
