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.


Hi Mick tried 691 with wine from ppm and still get the same results as before.

Good evening/morning, mick!
How many back issues will the present delta fix (just one, I suspect?).
Have loaded an earlier 5.3 release onto a friend's laptop to dual boot. What are the chances of a successful update by re-installing as a FULL. pfix= ram, etc, etc?

Evening here Smile

I would back up the personal data and do a clean install, after testing pfix=ram of course. Because of Slackware moving to "kmod" (module-init-tools has not been developed in 3 years) for kernel module loading there is a rocky road to tread in upgrading from 5.3 to 5.4 (soon to be 5.5). I'll do a delta from 5.4.0.5 when ready.

All that said, if you have backed up there is no harm in trying but first read THIS page. There will be a new page with even more comprehensive tips and work arounds for known issues on release of 5.5.

Thanks for your speedy response, mick! I guess this information may be of assistance to quite a few folks, maybe worth repeating de temps en temps?
Your notes in your link are especially helpful regarding wireless issues; have had 'no connect' and' disappearing connection' features crop up frequently. Not saving the WPA Key can also be distracting, requiring finding the router(!) and up-ending it to read the key.
Personally, I took the precaution of lifting the floorboards during my last move and hard-wiring networking throughout. I also set my Key to something more memorable than the one supplied, but editing the router config is beyond most regular folks and can cause havoc if they hit the wrong key...

No problem.

And thanks.. you jogged my memory into including another helpful parameter for wireless stability.. I'll just dig up the code... to do with power management.

Ah... my memory prevailed (but I did check Wink )
Code:
echo "iwconfig wlan0 power off" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Subject description: misnamed directories
 

I had occasion to look at /tmp/bootsysinit.log and found that a directory and a file were not being found.
One was /lib/modules/3.2.33 that was there, but named 3.2.33-4g.
I created a syslink in the modules directory to it.

The other, a file, was /etc/modules/firmware.dep.3.2.33.
When that file is not found, do the firmware dependencies get loaded?

I was just wondering why the -4g was added to directory and file names on files associated with the sysinit process as it seems that it is causing directories and files to not be found.

For some reason my Parents weren't particularly keen the idea of me drilling holes through the walls and ceiling of our freshly decorated study when we got broadband. Spoilsports. Wink

I must admit that power management wasn't near the top of my list of wireless-related things to check on a desktop but I'll give it a shot anyway. It does seem to be a bit more reliable on 5.4.0.6. The dropouts seem to be related to the amount of data transferred somehow.

Nice catch, fixed.

5.4.0.6.1 looks good (and I did add the udev-175 use in Pox_git Wink ) but hava a strange "problem" with frisbee.
In a pfix=ram setting the frisbee window before connection is "normal" size, but after the connection is established and appears in the frisbee UI (ie connected to: 123.45.67.890) the window resizes to the full screen size but stays in position and runs off screen.
Looks like that connection triggers a gtkdialog window resize Confused
Anyone else is seeing this?

Mavrothal... yes, on a small screen this is an issue with frisbee, I think when the text comes up it's too big for the hbox .. remove homegenous="true" and it does fix it IIRC.

Subject description: 5406 pae remaster
 

I'm still testing 5406pae on my acer desktop.
I did another remaster that has lots of applications (713mb iso) and
did a manual frugal install of that to an 8gb SDHC card with grub4dos
as the bootloader.
I used the customize option in the remaster script so when I boot it
up it's ready to go, takes 90 seconds to boot and I don't need to make
a savefile so there's plenty of room on the SDHC card.

I don't know if this issue was noticed on this thread, but since i started with Slacko i can't get running any vpn service (PPTP/OpenVPN).

Perhaps that the system doesn't create correctly the interface used by the VPN client, even after symlink /bin/ip . The same issue happens between GPPTP and OpenVPN.
