Hi Jim..

Funny, I was just testing ntfs partitions and no problems here. Have you done a chkdsk lately?

Check your PM on another matter Wink

(and sorry, in the message it should have said "clucene")

PostPosted: Sun 29 Apr 2012, 11:26    Post subject: Dell C610 and sound again  

Hi folks,

Tried the latest .9 beta on the Dell C610 with Intel 8x0 sound. Clean manual frugal install. I heard the 2 barks on initial boot, but sound is gone on all subsequent reboots after a savefile is created. No errors, and the sound icon is present in the tray at 75%.

Also, strange (and unrelated) is that it took 2 full minutes between the time I clicked on Administrator on the yellow save config dialog till I got the "probing partitions" popup followed by the next dialog.

I'll test the latest beta on the Dell D430 and Panasonic Toughbook CF-T2 later

Anyone else tried downloading the older Flash Player from PPM?
Doesn't seem to be working for me.

Excellent, as usual, thanks!
Would be nice if it could detect native 1440x900, though. Both DaveS and I have had irritations over that. Perhaps modern NTSC monitor/TVs don't use that format, yet? Surely, they all come from the same source?! Might be a circuitry difference, ie apart from the bleeding obvious one?

I used the one from the Internet Menu - works OK.

Hello Sage,

I know the newer Flash Player is available from the menu, it's just that I am testing Slacko on a couple of machines including this one which is 10 years old and not the most powerful. Thought I would try the older Flash. The pop-up window even advises as such so if the links in PPM are not working I thought I should mention it. Might be something I am doing wrong though.

I have Lupu running on another 8 year old machine and that has been giving me occasional browser crashes when the more recent Flash is running hard in the page (eg. a media player and a chat window at the same time). SeaMonkey seems a bit more robust than Firefox under those conditions incidentally.

Worth trying anything where FlashPlayer & Adobe is concerned.
Probably the best guides were given by DaveS a week or two back. He provided a v.10 and a v.11 that worked with older & newer browsers, respectively. There was another correspondent about a week or two before that who recommended a v.9 FP which might be worth a try?

Hi Mick,

Sorry, I failed to mention that I used an existing 4fs save file on an ext4 partition created using pupsaveconfig in 5.3.3.2.8p and was unable to save edits to my menu.lst file on a ntfs partition. I do fsck on every boot.

EDIT: Tried it on an existing 4fs save file for 5.3.2.8.5. No problem saving to ntfs partition. Problem was apparently just a bad save file.

Another problem, I made a fresh frugal installation on an ext3 partition and on shutdown created a 4fs save file using your shutdown. It appeared to be created properly, however upon reboot there was no background image and all icons were triangles. Opening some programs, and some functions were missing. I could not post a picture because it said that there are no images. Next I deleted the 4fs safe file, rebooted and created a 3fs save file and rebooted again. I am posting with this one and it does not have the problems I saw with the 4fs save file. I will repeat the above and see if there is any difference on a new installation on an ext4 partition.

Re: saving to ntfs, no problem with the fresh installation.

Thanks for the program you sent by PM, I'm sure it's fine, and will test that now on this new installation.

Cheers,
Jim

Hi all

zekebaby,

Tha fact that sound works on firstboot and no errors afterward means that sound is still available to the system but there needs to be a manual setting set right in alsamixer or retrovol, it will be something like "front" or "rear" with the volume down or unchecked. Right click the retrovol icon and try some of the various settings and visit the retrovol thread for clues. I'm sure you'll get it to work, it's difficult to get 100% working sound with general settings.

Pupsaveconfig is available from Slickpet (I just fixed it, upload failed before Embarassed ). If you have problems with ext4 in Barry's version use it and report if there are still problems. I tested on old and new gear with ext4 saves, even encrypted and had no issues. The reason a save fails is a failed mount of the save. It should be covered in /etc/rc.d/rc.shutdown. I also tested inside of X and outside (the old method). Both worked.

My booboo with flash player in PPM. If you are feeling adventurous, delete the line in /root/.packages/Packages-puppy-slacko-official related to flash-player-10.2. Then run this in console.
Code:
rm /tmp/pet*
..that refreshes PPM. Flash-player from TerryPhi should then appear in PPM. It will be fixed in Final of course. Flash-player-11.2.202 should be ok, but one problem with PPM is that sometimes with common entries only show up one, I'll rename one or the other.

Subject description: Random wallpaper
 

Hi Mick,

I know it's late for a feature request but SFR posted the following code here which I have been using with a 120 second time interval in all pups with Nathan's wallpaper setter. I really like it:
Code:
#!/bin/bash

# Randomly changes the wallpaper at fixed time intervals

INTERVAL=10      # in seconds

while true; do
  sleep $INTERVAL
  WALLPAPER=`ls /usr/share/backgrounds | sort -R | head -1`
  set_bg "/usr/share/backgrounds/$WALLPAPER"
done

Adjust the time interval to your needs, save the script as "randomwallpaper" to /root/Startup and make it executable.
Now click on it.
To stop the script, open terminal and type:
Code:
killall randomwallpaper


Thanks,
Jim

Frugal installation on an ext4 partition on my laptop with a wifi internet connection. Everything appears to be working properly except that my wifi DefaultPrinter HP_Officejet_6500_E709n is not recognized. Ideas?

Thanks,
Jim

Still booting off the cd,save file on a flash drive.No problems at all.
Been testing the Firefox 12 pet and it appears to be working fine. No problem here accessing the NTFS partitions on this box....been listening to music stored on the internal NTFS partitioned hdd. Windows 7 does automatically keep the hdd defragmented which may be a factor.
Anyway,overall looking really good.

It might be interesting to see what hpliplite does.
