Neither Slacko5.5-4g or Wary5.5 see or have an icon appear
when a blank cd-rw, dvd-rw is inserted. Pmount also doesn't
see them.
Both burn-iso-tocd and pburn see them; but may burn an
iso that gives kernel-panic.

IIRC, there was a problem in Precise where audio CD's were not being detected at all. This required changes to tools like probedisk and these changes are probably now in woof. So they will affect subsequent Puppies.

I will do some tests with this.

[Edit] Using Wary 55, I burned some ISOs using burniso2cd. Like you reported, the blank discs were not detected. However, the burned CDs all booted correctly without kernel panics.

I believe that whatever burning problems you are having, they are not related to the issue of disc detection.

I should have mentioned; the burning problems took
place one evening. The next day the burns were working,
using the same iso's, devices, and methods.
Don't have a clue why.

PostPosted: Thu 14 Mar 2013, 12:52    Post_subject: closing jwm windows [solved]  

EDIT: This is a feature, not a bug!
Thanks to anikin for pointing out the thread where this has been discussed. I don't like this feature, but the change in behavior is too trivial to gripe about.


A trivial issue with slacko5.5-PAE (no user changes made after bootup), not seen in slacko5.4-PAE:

When closing a window, as the arrow cursor nears the "x" in the upper right of the window frame, the arrow changes to a rectangle. This is not desirable, but is a very minor issue.

Has anyone else noticed this? Is there a way to stop the change in cursor indicator, i.e. to revert to the jwm behavior in slacko5.4-PAE?

I think that's a feature of the latest version of jmw which has probably been used in the 5.5 Slacko, but you'll want to wait for someone smarter than me to tell you how to disable it. Confused

@Tote: It doesn't look like this "feature" can be disabled. Thanks for the reply.

@anikin: Thanks for pointing out that thread. I would have gone through life thinking it was a bug. Now I know it's a "feature".

Thanks for the replies.

I am trying to figure out why cdrdao and cdparanoia is a part of the Slacko iso?

What apps depends on these?
I checked /root/.packages/woof-installed-packages, but no wisdom there.

Sigmund,

Does this give you a clue?

Code:
# grep cdrdao ~/.packages/builtin_files/*
/root/.packages/builtin_files/cdrdao: cdrdao
/root/.packages/builtin_files/cdrdao:/usr/share/cdrdao
/root/.packages/builtin_files/shared-mime-info: x-cdrdao-toc.xml
# cat /root/.packages/builtin_files/cdrdao
/usr
/usr/bin
 cdrdao
 cue2toc
 toc2cddb
 toc2cue
/usr/share
/usr/share/cdrdao
 drivers


I remember there was a reason, but that may have only been for the 13.37 version

Nope.
I only know pBurn, and that does not use cdrdao.
I don't think we have any gui apps offering toc/cue conversion.

You can try to remove cdrdao with the uninstall builtin packages tool , on a check it seems not needed at all, and also libao.

Thanks

So I installed slacko to a 2Gb usb drive. WOW. Everything "just works". Broadcom wireless works- sound buttons work- brightness works and all apps that I installed so far (chromium,BibleTime,Pan139) ran fine and all dependancies were installed fine.

Way To Go!!

1 question, how do I add xfce to the mix? It is my favorite.
