Hmmmm....

getflash has been a PITA for the past few days.. but with Barry's find I managed to alter the current getflash prog and it seems to work ok. There is no ping to google, it just finds the url by parsing the flash webpage.. so if that webpage can be parsed then that's good enough to check connection! If not the loop stops.

Here it is, direct download of flashplayer.. take 3!

Firefox 9 Beta or Firefox 10 Aurora

Adobe Flash doesn't work

Perhaps, they are moving to HTML5 but I am not sure why. Can anyone check it out. Thanks

Well.. seems encryption is fixed in the latest woof... this was a major bug in my opinion so expect an update soon.

Posting from a heavy encrypted Slacko-save now.

Thats cool but I wonder if its that easy to replace flash by all websites. Firefox 9 is too early to be flash free.

I posted a temporary patch I made that works. It can be found under the Users section.
It is not needed with the latest Racy version.
But it works with Slacko if instructions in the post are followed.

It can be found here.

Xsane issue Threshold not available.
Having been done some testing for Peasyscan, I discovered an issue in Xsane lineart (binary) mode.

When selecting the scan mode panel, I don't have the threshold bar.
My device is epson2

I have it in Icepuppy 012 and when discussing with rsrcn51 he advised to use the libsane-epson2.so.xxx library files in /usr/lib/sane from Ice to slacko 5.3

I did so and I could use the threshold bar.

Code:
# ls -l libsane-epson2*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     24 2011-11-10 08:17 libsane-epson2.so -> libsane-epson2.so.1.0.20
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     24 2011-11-10 08:17 libsane-epson2.so.1 -> libsane-epson2.so.1.0.20
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 162780 2011-05-26 17:18 libsane-epson2.so.1.0.20
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 160800 2011-10-24 13:39 libsane-epson2.so.1.0.21org
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     24 2011-10-24 13:32 libsane-epson2.so.1org -> libsane-epson2.so.1.0.21
#
The library files ending in xxxxorg are the slacko 5.3 ones.
The others (which work) the ICE puppy 012 ones

I thought I just mention this for those who are using a epson2 backend.

To save me downloading ice puppy can you do me the favour of tarballing the libsane-epson2.so.1.0.20 file please? I can pet it up as a z_sane_hack and it will overwrite the slacko libs in woof.

TIA.
Micko,
I have been away a lot the WE.
I added a fake .gz extension to the file, just remove it after the download.

Hi, Slacko is great on DVD!
- Slacko on DVD-RW Multisession
- 2 Go slackosave.2fs file written on the DVD
- nvidia-285.05.09-k2.6.37.6-s.pet (from slickpet) managing two screens configured the TwinView way,
the laptop screen (native 1024 x 768) running 1280 x 800 mode, and LCD screen 1920 x 1080 via VGA.
- SFS-Load on-the-fly, all at once:
---devx_slacko_5.3.sfs
--- OpenOfc-3.3.0_en-US_sfs4.sfs,
--- lazarus-0.9.28.2-complete.sfs
OpenOffice and Lazarus run very fast and smoothly in ram (4 Go)
Very amazed to see lazarus compiling at first run with just a little config error message.
- Persistence of the integrity of the desktop after multiple reboots
- Persistence of the integrity of the desktop after multiple SFS files loaded
- BootFlash Puppy to USB and savesession-dvd scripts have run in a breeze
- wine-1.3.28-i486_v2.pet (from slickpet) is rock solid for my old and very trusted messagerie PocoMail, fax via PDF, Moffsoft FreeCalc a pretty calculator, and NoteTab Pro a programmable editor,
- Opera 11.52, FireFox 8.0 with FireBugs and Developper add-ons
HD just mounted and unmounted when needed for archiving.
So many thanks to 01micko and the staff,
to BK who "ads" Slacko in his blog,
and to Flash who argumented many times in the forum about running Puppy on DVD.

PostPosted: Mon 14 Nov 2011, 14:58    Post subject: Opera 11.52 fullscreen
Subject description: F11 does not exit fullscreen
 

Slacko 5.3 fresh frugal install.

Looks very impressive so far.....1 point to note.

Opera 11.52 full screen does not toggle correctly with F11. F11 gives fullscreen but there is no way to leave fullscreen.

This only occurs in JWM , with Openbox and Icewm it works perfectly.

@Scruffy: The same thing happened to me once in Chromium. JWM is overall unimpressive and I'd like to see something better as the default, although I've heard that it has gotten much more bug-free than it used to be a while ago.

@Developers and tony: See this thread for an aufs-related bug report.

For the next release I am sticking with JWM. Joe Wing has updated a lot recently and in the next testing verion I will release with the latest to see if those bugs are fixed.

Is this aufs bug apparent in Slacko? We use a later aufs than Lucid. To check your filesystem on pupmode=7 (using the whole stick) you would have to boot to another install somehow (either another stick or live cd) OR... if you add "pfix=fsck" to the kernel line in the sysconfig file at the root of the drive (or extlinux if you use ext2,3,4) you should be able to at least check the save filesytem every boot. (or add pfix=ram and check manually whenever you want). Note though, you wont be able to check the integrity of the drive itself using either of those methods.

Yes, I think I forgot to stress that I'm using Slacko 5.3. I don't know how often the corruption happens "spontaneously", i.e. not after a crash, and in which versions. Thanks for the pointers, I'll try it if I get in the situation again. By the way, I tried a google search with the error message that appears in /var/log/messages and every help request hit was about Puppy.
