Problem saving straight 5.3.3 version to DVD. Said it requires a new or updated DVD! UpupPrecise 5.3.3.x has divination capacity since, at approx. the same time I was trying to save, pemasu was presenting version 5.3.3.1... Smile (hehe)

Back to serious: Will check if it is my DVD disk itself or some function in shutdown routine of PrecisePup that's involved.

BFN.


@pemasu & upup-precise kennel:

As it stands, there is no growisofs in upup precise... nowhere.

The problem is solved by downloading & installing growisofs from
http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/video/growisofs
just after you've specified your regional parameters, etc.
Click on shutdown, click on ''save to cd / dvd'', let the script do its stuff.
On reboot all will be ok, you will be able to boot upup-precise and save your work to cd / dvd.

Writing this from upup-precise entirely on DVD.

Proof: see the big plus sign in attached pic.

Regards.

PS. No libs are missing.

Another thing: the locales list in the parameter setting panel on first boot is incomplete.

The Earth on which Upup-Precise operates is missing three continents Laughing : North America, Central America and South America.

Luckily this alien knew his TZ by heart! Smile

time zone comes from tzdata package. It installs the timezone stuff to the /usr/share/timezone/*

Woof packages-templates...under glibc screws ubuntu new format of timezones. It means that it removes American continents. Not big deal some might think....but it disturbs the time zone selections and that is bad thing.

I will test how to fix the glibc packages-template.

EDIT. Got it. Just remove the previous content from zoneinfo template folder and add PLUSEXTRAFILES and PLUSEXTRADIRS into it.

I wonder how many other templates needs fixing.

Jim1911. I suppose you did remove the module first:
rmmod iwlwifi and loaded it: modprobe iwlwifi
and then run: dmesg
There is still that 4 version to test...if is possible to find that firmware.
And possiblity that the firmware version I found from rpm package is not suitable.

Also...could you check in dpup exprimo...what firmware version is loaded there. It would help a lot. If it is not too big trouble.

I've had some success by moving the iwlwifi firmware from /lib/modules/all-firmware/iwlwifi/lib/firmware/iwlwifi/ directly to /lib/firmware.

Test Precise-5.3.3.1-SCSI.iso

Type Install: UPGRADE to previous BK's Precise-5.2.52

Results: Everything updated just fine, all regular Puppy installed programs remained intact and those programs that didn't work properly in 5.2.25 now work as they should! The only 'self-installed' program that didn't work was 'Pwidgets' but that didn't work in 5.2.52 either?

The Mplayer with the new 3.3.2 kernel is just super, no more 'buffering' or stopping or fluttering of the videos tested from various sites that is so common on every other version of Puppy that I've tested to date!

To say the least, it's 'FAST'... I didn't think Puppy could get any faster than a few of the last recent versions I've tested... 'I was wrong... this Puppy really rocks for speed!!!'

Thanks for the explanation. Where does one find these "extra" files? Are they already in the "PrecisePup" and we have to put them in a different order?

Thanks in advance. BFN.

You just need to install tzdata package with PPM and you get full time zone data.

pemasu,

This may not be something to bring up, this far along in the process. Just an idea.
When Barry made Precise Puppy, it was my understanding that he did not try to do a complete build with Woof. Just did enough to test it out. So he left a lot out that a normal build would have.
If this is true.
Would it not be better to do a fresh complete build using Woof?
Start bug fixing that one.

Jim1911. From your dmesg, the relevant wireless information.
iwlwifi 0000:01:00.0: loaded firmware version 17.168.5.2 build 35905
[ 27.380075] wlan0: authenticate with e8:39:df:d8:99:f3 (try 1)
[ 27.382648] wlan0: authenticated
[ 27.382975] wlan0: associate with e8:39:df:d8:99:f3 (try 1)
[ 27.385160] wlan0: RX AssocResp from e8:39:df:d8:99:f3 (capab=0x431 status=0 aid=4)
[ 27.385168] wlan0: associated

So...the firmware in that puplet in use is...iwlwifi-6000g2b-5.ucode

I suggest you to replace the iwlwifi content from that working puplet. So that we can eliminate the problem by non-working firmaware. Well of course it could be demand of newer firmware...which is not even available yet. There is coming 3 new firmwares from intellilinuxwireless soon....

I suppose it is wireless you want to get working. You posted about r8169 also and that is ethernet nic card.

Just replace the folder content of: /lib/modules/all-firmware/iwlwifi/lib/firmware/iwlwifi

And if this does not help, move the iwlwifi folder under /lib/firmaware

It is possible that something with this new kernel is behind the behavior and so...it might be new Puppy or kernel behavior problem.

bigpup.
I do create all my builds by using woof. I dont remaster or unsqhuash existing main sfs files and replace stuff.

These builds are pure woof builds. Using latest woof version, and I have added all included stuff to the distro_specs file to be imported in to the build by woof processing.

So....this is woof build.

The reason I am doing this...is to add those things which Barry had left out...or better....he did quick building so that Precise Puppy boots the X and most stuff quickly tested seems to work.

Through forum posts I have added already a lot missing stuff.
