I used the delta to create 5406.iso then burned the iso to a dvd.
Booted dvd and did a frugal install to the hard drive with universal
installer.
Booted up frugal install and installed kdegames with ppm, works.
Installed devx,kernelsource and compiled proprietary nvidia driver.
Installed pets and an sfs, chromium says flash outdated,fixed with
getflash.
Copied pvr firmware to /lib/firmware.
Several reboots along the way.
Ran remaster live cd, then burned the remaster.iso to a dvd.
Booted up remastered live dvd, here I am.

Hi Mick

Notice that the Broadcom WL driver is no longer included in Slacko 5.4.0.6 - is this a deliberate omission??

It works fine if it is loaded....

Cheers

Mistake Embarassed .. only affects the 4G version. Uploading a new delta shortly.. It will be from 5.4.0.5 >> 5.4.0.6.1

Apologies for inconvenience but I had major corruption of my woof tree on a woof upgrade. No idea of the cause but a downgrade of woof, then a reupgrade fixed it.

PostPosted: Sun 03 Mar 2013, 16:22    Post subject: network_tray  

Hey Mick

At last I managed to set up GRPS connection via my old SE k750i (connected via USB cable), because I wanted to test network_tray's ability of changing tray icon.
Spent some time trying different combinations, restarting X and digging inside modemiconset* script, until I downloaded network_tray source code and looking into it I got "feeling" (still don't know C) that probably it somehow depends on Frisbee.
So in the end I launched Frisbee and indeed - the icon has changed instantly! (screenshot)
And it looks really cool! Smile
I just wonder, or rather do not fully understand why there's a need to launch Frisbee, to enjoy that feature..?
There's also possibility that I'm doing something wrong - I'm not a "network guy" btw.

Ah, the "splash-screen mess in chars" somehow survived and it's still there. Laughing

* modemiconset - I don't know if that really matters, but while playing with it I found that if the script is called without arguments, it spits out "[: too many arguments" error.
It's because my number in /etc/wvdial.conf is *99# - wrapping all "$FIRSTDIGIT" vars in double quotes has fixed that "problem".


Greetings!

***************************************

Delta for the 4G version with wl bug is reuploaded!

See main post

I put in isolinux.bin from lupu 5.2.5. I don't have later atm, but I could use the one from my Slackware install, it is likely much later. The one I used is attached. It's real gz Wink .

I agree it would be a nice feature if the icons switching to phones for the net tray icon would be nice accross the board. It's a work in progress but likely not to make final.

Hmm, the one you attached is the "bug-free" version indeed (ISOLINUX 4.03, same as in Lupu-528.005).
But in the ISO I have built from 5.4.0.5 + delta is the old version. That's odd...

The one from Slackware is even newer (4.05) and it works too. Smile

Greetings!

SFR, yes it is weird.. in my woof tree is the new one, but the old one did get used! I'll check the build script, maybe it is stored elsewhere after initial run of woof.

--- haha... look at this

Code:
# ls woof-out_x86_x86_slackware_14.0/boot
boot-dialog  initrd-tree0    makeext2initrd   README.txt
cpio         isolinux.bin    makeinitrdgz.sh  vercmp.c
depmod       makecpioinitrd  README.HTM


but.. in 3builddistro...

Code:
# grep 'isolinux.bin' woof-out_x86_x86_slackware_14.0/3builddistro
if [ -f rootfs-complete/usr/lib/syslinux/isolinux.bin ];then
 cp -a rootfs-complete/usr/lib/syslinux/isolinux.bin build/
 cp -a ../boot/isolinux.bin build/
 $MKISOFS -D -R -o ${DISTRO_FILE_PREFIX}-${DISTRO_VERSION}${SCSIFLAG}.iso -b isolinux.bin -c boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table ./build/


So now i know.. Laughing

Hi Mick,

I'm not having the problem with the PAE version using Wine along with BibleAnalyzer and eSword that oldyeller reported using the non-PAE version. However, theWord does have the problem. Also, Bibletime is working fine.

Cheers, Very Happy
Jim

Jim and oldyeller.

It is possible that it's a JWM issue. scsijon reckons that 692 (that is used in this version) is unstable.

You can try 691 attached.
