Carolite 1.1a - nice!
Couple of strange messages
:'writing data....' when requesting (closed) CD to eject.
:Xfburn refuses blank(ed) disc on my ancient Philips/HP/Others 4x4x32 E118405. Probably feature of this drive which has a long history of bad reviews.
Otherwise - like it.

I'm getting the same message with data dvd's, with movies I'm getting "ejecting media" which sounds normal. Will try in Carolina later to see if it's the same.

As before, please let me know if this works for you.


That works a lot better, though setting the homepage and history don't work.


Not sure why that is, but I think it's as good as it'll get with this method. Probably a fair trade-off for not breaking the locale entirely or having to force it to "C", especially if you're using a non-English locale.

I updated to 1.1 with the delta file. Now my desktop does not work.
What I mean is background and no icons. Not sure how to fix it.

Any ideas?

Did the md5 for the updated ISO check ok, if so have you tried to boot it without your existing save file.

It should work ok, nobody else has reported a problem updating to 1.1

The PAE ISO md5 is
Code:
1f462390488b9e5063d62e2f825616b4


The Non-PAE ISO md5 is
Code:
3b9a73016b20426eda4fbdb60d5d5bcc

Geoffrey:

Yes, the md5 matches.
And yes it works when I don't use my old file.
So your files are innocent.
However, my desktop was working until I updated.
I have inklings that my hardware is failing.
Is there a way to repair this desktop?
If so, I will move my savefile to another computer.

Pete, have you tried enabling the icons and selecting a wall paper in Control Panel > Desktop.

I updated one of my old 1.0 saves to 1.1 and it works fine.

I really can't suggest anything, maybe someone else had this problem and as been able to rectify it.

Just a suggestion:

I've found that if a desktop icon is incorrect (e.g. it points to a program that's no longer installed), sometimes none of the desktop icons show up. This has happened to me occasionally when adding/unloading SFS programs. It might be what's happened to you.

Moving any *.desktop files out of /root/Desktop/ and then moving them back in one at a time might reinstate your desktop icons and allow you to find the one that's causing problems.

Firefox was a problem for me at one point, I think. No icons on the desktop, then I deleted the Firefox.desktop file and the rest came back.

Subject description: Hotshots 2.0.0 Updated from beta
 

Added the latest Hotshots to repo, there isn't a great deal of difference from Hotshots 2.0.0b1.
The only gripe I have with it to date is the fact that when enlarging the text font in the editor, the preview tends to push the bottom of the gui off screen.
Quote:
Version 2.0.0
* Features:
- Autostart on linux
- Add Portuguese translation. Thanks to Vinícius "A. Jorge".
- Add German translation. Thanks to dbr.
- Change default location of translation file on linux ("/share/hotshots/locale" instead of "/share/locale")
- Change some icons (best visual consistency)
- Add launch editor action in systray menu
- Editor: ability to set background color for some item type (rectangle, ellipse, text)
- Editor: add a palette of last used of foreground/background color pair
- Editor: add last saved/loaded file
- Editor: add "bring to top/bottom" for selected elements
- Editor: add "autorepeat" on font size buttons
- Add MacOSX target
* Bugs:
- Editor: add margin to render pixmap (incorrect crop)
- Editor: correct layout problem on font preview
- Editor: correct focus problem on text item
- Editor: correct saved shadow state on some items
- Editor: correct invalid proposed name for "save as" function
- Editor: correct text cursor move with keyboard if text item is selected
- correct a problem with automatic naming of exported image

Actually it seems to be working fine for me: homepage, history, changing search engine, etc.

It's quite a nice browser, seems pretty quick.

PostPosted: Sun 15 Dec 2013, 20:00    Post subject: Ramboot for Carolina 1.1  

Just a note to anyone using my ramboot=1 mod for Carolina 1.0. You can do the same thing for Carolina 1.1 but there's a shortcut: you can re-use the 'init' script you made before as it's identical.

You'll still need to add mnt/tmpfs3 and rebuild the initrd.gz file but there's no need to re-do all the ramboot additions in the init script. Just copy your modified init script from 1.0 before rebuilding initrd.gz.

I just tried it again and it appears to work ok, may have been a result of me trying different configurations to get it working that that caused the problem.

It may be better to create a sfs with all the required files than extracting the deb every time, the lib files could be in a hidden directory, out of sight out of mind, I'll have a play and see what I can do and if all is good I'll put it in the repo sfs directory.

That sounds like a good idea, much easier for end-users that way.

It works, but the search engines don't and I can't add any, it creates a blank xml for the search engines.
Code:
# slimboat
/usr/lib/slimboat/slimboat: /usr/lib/libxml2.so.2: no version information available (required by /usr/lib/slimboat/libs/libgstreamer-0.10.so.0)
IconLoader error: file not exist: "/root/.local/share/data/FlashPeak/SlimBoat/quicksearch/Google (custom).png"
IconLoader error: url= ""


Edited slimboat.sh
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# glibc hack from Puppy forum member ac2011
export LC_ALL="C"
export QT_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/lib/slimboat/plugins
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/slimboat/libs:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
/usr/lib/slimboat/glibc2113/lib/ld-linux.so.2 --library-path /usr/lib/slimboat/glibc2113/lib:/usr/lib/slimboat/libs /usr/lib/slimboat/slimboat "$@"


Close, any ideas?

Yes, I think so. The problem is you have to run ld-linux.so.2 from /usr/lib/slimboat/ and not a sub-directory under that (that's what's weird/unique about slimboat compared to other apps I've done this tweak with).

In my tests I couldn't even use a sym-link: it has to be the actual file. All the other libs can go where you've put them, but ld-linux.so.2 is the special case and has to go in /usr/lib/slimboat/

Then you'd have something like this:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# glibc hack from Puppy forum member ac2011
export LC_ALL="C"
export QT_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/lib/slimboat/plugins
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/slimboat/libs:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
/usr/lib/slimboat/ld-linux.so.2 --library-path /usr/lib/slimboat/glibc2113/lib:/usr/lib/slimboat/libs /usr/lib/slimboat/slimboat "$@"


PS. Thanks for the credit.
