Once upon a time (version 1.04) I have used it much.
But now it seems to have disappeared Crying or Very sad


If you are running Python you can use redemo.py

I created redemo.sh and made it executable

Code:
python /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/scripts/redemo.py

Somehow (new to forum) I think this has also gone somewhere else as well - appologies

Notifying BUG here as it concerns my test of 5.4.1 beta

Have just downloaded beta, tried on my Dell Vostro V360 all in one desktop. It boots to a totally black screen (nothing visible) which blinks the desktop on for about 0.5 seconds every 10-15 seconds. I also understand it affects some laptops as well of both Dell and other brands that use the nvidia optimus gt525 video chipset

This is a known bug with ubuntu 12.04 precise and I believe affects all kernels in all distros kernel 2.6 thru 3.5 that use a video driver unless it uses vesa. I understand the bug has been fixed in later 3.5 and up kernels

see this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/918769

and this which is too technical for me !! : https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=62301

Has anyone else had this problem?

Hope this helps make Puppy better and more versatile Very Happy

I haven't tried beta .1 yet, but reported very similar video issues on page 16 of this thread, which apparently were not deserving of Barry's response.

If I hadn't had two monitors available, I wouldn't have been able to do any experimentation at all with Puppy 5.4. As it is, configuring a display was gruesomely difficult, and at times both monitors were blacked out, and only one was even marginally usable at the available settings.

And these are problems I've never encountered with any Puppy from 1.1 through 5.2.8.

Not the kind of comment that is going to get me "onside".

I often don't respond to a bug report simply because I haven't got a clue how to fix it. If someone reports a "black screen", there is not much to go on.

Often the only apparent solution is to use some other puplet or even other distro that does work with that hardware.

Precise Puppy 5.4.1 coming soon.

That's enough, I reckon that we have got this pup in good shape. I am going to do a build of 5.4.1-final right now, then do some sanity testing, then upload it.

The sanity-testing is required, as it is always possible that the recent fixes, such as the menu-category fix when installing packages, and the glib/gio module-loading fix, may themselves introduce some other bug -- even though they may seem like straight-forward fixes, I know from experience to be very cautious.

Well, it is even possible that my sanity test might miss some new subtle bug, but it is a question of the odds being in favour of everything being ok.

After 5.4.1 is released, the "Puppy community" is invited to take over and work toward 5.4.2+. If there is a consensus of developers, for a group or particular individual to coordinate, then go for it!

Um, here is an example of a potential last-minute bug...

I have put in the glib PET from akash_rawal, but I just looked at his compile configure:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --enable-debug=yes

...there is no "--build" parameter, so although the name of the PET specified that it is for "i686", there is no guarantee that this is so. The compile could be optimised for whatever CPU that akash_rawal has.

Therefore, I won't take the risk. I will build 5.4.1-final without akash_rawal's glib PET.

Note "--enable-debug=yes" increases a size of compiled binary.
The default option is "--enable-debug=minimal" but if we want to get a smallest binary,
we must use "--enable-debug=no".
This also true for GTK and Pango libraries.

My report on page 16 described the most serious display configuration issues I've encountered in all the Puppies I've used since 1.1 - much more than a mere "black screen" report.

Ignoring bug reports because you dislike the poster simply undermines confidence in your work, as well as discouraging essential feedback.

To save you the hunt I've attached the glib patch I use in Slacko-beta series based on slackware-14.0. This is based directly on jemimah's work.

Cheers


Thanks.

I applied the patch and rebuilt glib, and abiword's help works Smile

One slight problem, with an additional volume monitor running a mounted volume is listed twice in the filechooser sidebar. I modified it so that the native mount monitor is turned off on exporting "GIO_IGNORE_NATIVE_VOLUME_MONITOR" environment variable.

Oh please!!!!

What nonsense.

This is one example of many that have contributed to my desire to withdraw from the "frontline" development.

I would differently agree on this one two, keep it up Barry and don't let anyone discourage you on what you have done which is to bring us a little puppy to play with.

Cheers
