Well, I'll be... this fixed a (probably) related issue in Precise 5.7.1/Firefox, too - and I've noticed the same problem with Firefox in a number of Linux distros ("Open Containing Folder" does nothing) - maybe it'll work with those, as well. Cool

I'll throw a thread up in the "How To's" sub-forum to let folks know.

I've never mentioned how much I love Carolina. In fact I'll bet it's a major factor in my lack of Puppy contributions in the last few years. It's just so good I don't need to compile anything or tweak anything. Necessity is the mother of invention, and so I've been lazy Wink

Anyway, speaking of necessity, long story short, I installed Carolina on to a new laptop, but the hardware required a newer kernel. I'd like to upload the Carolina iso I remastered with the new kernel but thought to ask permission before doing so.

Many thanks again for this puplet Geoffrey, elroy, and rg66 Smile

Thanks battleshooter, do that, the kernel update you offer will be welcome.

There isn't much else we can do anymore, rg66 is busy with X-Slacko and X-Precise and would like to move on to other newer projects.

I was going to post that there wouldn't be another update, I'll continue to add apps to the repo but as far as Carolina go's it will remain at version 1.2 indefinitely.

It would be easier for those that want an updated version to remove the adrive and create there own adding the apps they require from the repo.

Wow, that's unfortunate. And completely ironic. I seem to have a knack for deciding to say "I <3 Puppy XXXX" right before the project winds down. I did that to Saluki just before it closed down as well. Confused

I remastered with Carolina 1.1, so I need to remaster with 1.2 instead, makes more sense if that's to be the final release. I can send you the link when it's uploaded.

It should be possible to update the kernel with the new init scripts in current woof 'testing'

As a very rough guideline:-

1. Compile a kernel in Carolina using kernel-kit. That will leave you with a kernel-modules sfs and vmlinuz-whatever-version. Rename vminuz-xxxx to vmlinuz and the kernel-modules.sfs.xxx to what ever the ZDRIVE variable is in carolina (see /etc/DISTRO_SPECS). If you don't want to build a kernel get one here, one built in slacko and the other in tahr, but there may be gcc/glibc issues since carolina is an old base.

2. Grab these 2 files init and rc.sysinit

3. decompress your initrd.gz, replace the init script and delete all the kernel modules (everything in /lib/modules).

4. In the main sfs (or if carolina has an original z drive, sorry too ignorant to know) delete all the kernel modules and firmware as the nw kernel has it in the sfs (in kernel kit you have to find it your self, so maybe grab one of the kernels anyway and copy it from there, this is a work in progress and firmware is a bit of an issue atm, but we are working on it).
While in the main sfs replace /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit with the file I pointed at earlier.

5. compress your initrd.gz, compress the main sfs and that should almost get you there.

NB: I have only tried this with very recent woof so ymmv but forum member stemsee has tried it with a variety of pups. Talk to him for further advice.

Cheers

Thanks for the tip(s) Micko! Smile

I've actually already compiled the 3.15 kernel using yours and Iguleder's kernel-kit in the Woof-CE. (Thank you for that by the way, it makes kernel compilation very simple.) I was just asking Geoffrey for permission to post it. (Thought to be safe than sorry.) I've been using the new kernel for with Carolina 1.1 a few days now and all seems steady.

To add the new kernel to Carolina I just used the "Carolina Custom Builder". I think the CCB might do your steps automatically because after I selected the kernel pet I made from the folder in /dist/packages, CCB combined it with the original lina-1.1.iso, resquashed everything and spat out a shiny new lina-1.1.iso, so I didn't really have to mess with the details in your post.

I did manually remove the old kernel headers from the devx file and obviously completely replaced the kernel source sfs with the one created by the kernel kit.

The only thing I couldn't figure out was why /lib/modules/3.15.0/build kept pointing to the original place I compiled it in (/mnt/sda3/woof-CE-master/kernel-kit/linux-3.15) instead of /lib/modules/3.15/build or /usr/src/linux.

I recompiled the kernel again today. I deleted the kernel pet I used to remaster 1.1, and oddly enough the easier solution was just to recompile.

Carolina 1.2 with 3.15 kernel.

Just to stretch the rubber band a bit tested this on my 1.6GHz Pentium M all intel fujitsu S6231 laptop using a standard Grub4Dos frugal install and my savefile and custom adrive from my carolite 1.2 install appropriately renamed. Up and running immediately. Wireless connection, sound, video, themes, wallpaper, CPU governor, lid suspend, xfce4 panel all totally correct.

On my Acer Aspire One, this lina with kernel 3.15 stops at the 'Personalize Settings' screen where another window pops up saying 'The kernel has not loaded its device drivers. It is likely that the zdrive is not installed...' At this point input devices (netbook's keyboard and trackpad, and USB keyboard/mouse combo) stopped working. I had to power off using the power button.

At boot time I could use the keyboard to tell lina to not use the savefiles it located in my hard drive. I also saw the on screen message about files being loaded, among them is zdrive.

On my Toshiba Chromebook, this lina also got to the 'Personalize Settings' screen but the display was so wrong. The xfce panel that should be sitting at the bottom of the screen is displayed a couple of inches from the top. I have no way to see whether or not the message about the device drivers not loaded is shown. Again I had to turn the device off with the power button. X-precise runs on this chromebook with just the trackpad not working, but Carolina won't boot on this device (I'm thinking it could be the old kernel)

Can someone confirm if this lina with kernel 3.15 works on their PC?

Kernel 3.15 version works fine both as live cd and frugal install on my dual-core desktop.

My download checks out ok against the md5sum, I changed usb file format from ext4 to ext3 then to fat32... still getting same result. Might try a different usb flash drive and see how it goes.

Edit 23/06/14:
The same usb install managed to boot an old HP Compaq laptop which I find odd. Normally for me, testing on the HP C laptop fails where as it would go well for the Acer netbook.

One thing more, as peebee posted below, WiFi doesn't work

It's not dead but dormant, it's been slow for the simple fact it works ok as is, we were going to release a update,
but it would of only been updated installed applications, apart from LibreOffice most others can be updated with the latest versions from the repo,
it may have been wiser to leave LibreOffice out and just use the sfs option thus reducing the ISO by near half the size.

Here is whiskermenu that I recompiled, it now has the smallest icons selected as default and a different panel icon, much the same as rg66 now has in x-slacko, I retained the "Carolina" heading so that it changes color with the gtk theme.
