for saluki wiki

compiling ati with oficial amd installer
1. wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/amd-driver-installer-12-3-x86.x86_64.run
2. Load SFS - Dev & kernel sources (tested with kernel 3.2.8 which is default)
3. Exit to promt
4. sh amd-driver-installer-12-3-x86.x86_64.run --keep

if compiling fails then
5. cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/
6. patch -p1 < /path/to/patch
7. ./make.sh
8. cd .. && ./make_install.sh
9. aticonfig --initial

xwin to load desktop. reboot not required


I have had no success compiling ATi drivers om 328 kernel. so i will try this when i have time. I have some questions before though Wink

on point 6 : can you put the patch file in the lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/ folder ?

on point 7: is that all you type : ./make.sh ?

on point 8 : same as 7, i am a linux noob but cd stands for change directory . to where ?

and finaly can you make a SFS or .pet file ? Smile

thanks for the guide, sorry for my noobness

Out of curiosity, why init.d/fuse is in /sbin? Confused
leftover? magic?...


No idea. Barry made the package that way. I'll fix it and see if anything breaks.


Isn't fuse something that is needed by ntfs 3g?

I do hope you haven't 'fixed' 020 so that you cannot frugal install on ntfs file systems!

I'm not a dev so I may be talking a load of rubbish - on the other hand I might not!

Hi,

Could comic book support (.cbz and .cbr files) be enable in Saluki.

Is some extra package necessary or only myme types?

José Pinto


They should open in evince. I doubt the mime types are there though.


These file types open with Evince OOTB, heres some sample files to test it with.

I'm assuming you did try the vitualbox sfs from the repo?

No, that's for running other OSes inside Puppy, and I am sure it's ok .
(works fine on puppeee, btw Wink ).

What I'm trying to do is running Saluki as a guest, ie inside another OS (at the moment I am using Win64, but could be anything else). The Guest Additions come with Virtualbox and are supposed to be installed in the guest OS, in order to enable such features as 3d acceleration, shared folders, mouse integration and so on. Without the GA the guest OS runs in a degraded mode and is much less useful/efficient/fun.

Ideally in order to install the GA you just run a script from the Virtualbox supplied iso,but I've seen that working only in Slackware (which is not even in the supported guest OS list, go figure). All the other distros I'm playing with (Mint, Salix, Arch) supply a package that installs the GA without having to jump thru hoops. Mint even figures out it's running in VB and notifies the user to install the GA package, which is a nice touch.

As for Puppy (which btw is a awesome guest system because of speed and small footprint) mileages vary, and you have to create a user, run the compile script and mess around with services and startup files. In some cases you have to do that without being able to use the mouse or see portions of the screen (depends on which puppy you are using, sometime you just get a black screen at first boot, sometimes vesa works fine but X doesn't and so on - the most frequent problem is mouse breakage).

At the moment I only managed to make the GA work reasonably well on the latest Wary, probably because of the older Xorg, with Saluki a close second (everything is fine but mouse integration, on the other hand screen resize works much better...).


Gotcha. I will add it to my request list.

There is a file firegl_public.c in a folder lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/, which needs patching.
script make.sh located in the same folder will compile the fglrx.ko module
(./make.sh or sh make.sh to run it)
Then go to the upper directory with command 'cd ..' and you should be in the lib/modules/fglrx/
make_install.sh script install module to the sys folder

Sorry, I can't create a sfs or pet ( I am not that good with puppy yet

Something important has changed between 19 & 20, vide supra.
Did the rm -f /tmp thing, but the FULL refuses to poweroff. It briefly returns to the boot CLI then loops back into desktop. None of the expedients mentioned above will cause it to exit - only a hard reset. What???

I've compiled the new midori against the new webkitgtk-1.8 and it looks promising.

Unfortunately 1.8 won't compile without a glib update - which means it's not backwards compatible.

I'm thinking to postpone the release to wait for xfce 4.10 and the new midori. I'm not keen on maintaining two repos.

I've purchased saluki-linux.com so stay tuned for more info about the new website.

i did it wooptitooo Smile thanks a bunch

if you have a Ati card, its a must to install these drivers. the defaults that loads in saluki gave me 250 frames per second, these gave me 5700 frames per second in glxgears. and now XBMC 11 is working properly. it was unusable with the default drivers.

The synergy docs are here: http://synergy2.sourceforge.net/running.html.

Once you figure out how to start it from the command line, just add a script to /root/Startup with the right command.

put the text in it : /usr/bin/synergyc --name Acer 192.168.1.7

it will not work though. what did i do wrong ?


edit : made it Smile

hade to put in

#!/bin/sh
and then make the file exec. just a reboot now to se if it works.

PostPosted: Mon 23 Apr 2012, 18:40    Post subject: automount network drives  

To everyone that now uses saluki on a daly basis and have several machines / NAS / home server. And want to automount local shares. I have tested this on 2 machines saluki 18 and saluki20 conecting to a windows7 share and a NAS shares.

Download the pet from this page : lameSMBxplorer-0.2.3a.pet

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=50901&start=105


open the lameSMBqmount and add shares. check the automount at startup box. it works Smile

Windows 7 shares needs a user with a password.


LameSMBqmount puts the mounted network shares in /mnt/network
I do not know how to intergrate this with thunar. I justed symlinked it to the desktop


have fun, I do Smile

You can test the new midori by installing these pets: http://smokey01.com/saluki/midori-4.5/

X should be restarted after installing the new glib.

I found that it won't download files with the left mouse button, small window opens and locks up, need to close window and use rightclick save as.

Edit: reinstalled Midori 0.4.4, still has the same problem, must be something else causing it Confused
