PostPosted: Tue 19 Mar 2013, 12:58    Post subject:  status update?  

A question has been bugging me for a couple days. I've always thought of myself as a Linux noob. Not the most honorable, but a well deserved rank. So I thought until very recently. Now I have some serious doubts as to the correctness of my status. The reason? I have successfully compiled not one, but the whole two items for upup precise383!
1) eee.ko module
2) JWM (iconless).
(see attached image)
With this much of compiling experience under the belt, what am I - a noob, compiler, dev?

Just kidding. As a matter of fact, I should thank rcrsn51 for giving me a kick start howto for my first attempt and scsijon for his howto on compiling JWM.

Anikin. That is great. It wont take long when you start to ask questions about whole kernel compiling. Very Happy

By the way. In the next build is recompiled 3.8.3 kernel due to ISA involvement. But I have included your needed eee.ko in that build straight. I didnt do that because I want to diminish your achievement but because your post reminded your need for that module and there might be others who would like to have fan control in their comp. I dont remember exact specs or your comp which benefits from that module. I just remember it needed some other extra work also.

Upup Precise 3.8.3.1 has been uploaded. It has 3.8.3 kernel with ISA bus and ISA sound card support. Driver support is as large as I have figured it should be...which means that still something useful might be missing.

I have used latest woof atm....which had some problems with duplicate generic names.. At the last moment e2fsprogs vs. util-linux clash was found and it has been fixed in this build.

PupControl, PupSysinfo and PupClock has been added. Otherwise this build is kernel update. Previous kernel sources does not work. You need to update to the latest kernel-sources-3.8.3 version uploaded today.

Ati modern and legacy pets has been updated and the Quickpet has been updated accordingly to use them.

Some other small changes. Rox focus square added for keyboard select.
Fonts this time like they have been in dpup exprimo builds. Request by several users. Yeah I know, someone protest the change soon, lol.

Hi pemasu,

Running Upup with 3.8.3.1 kernel all looks good. Did a remaster and installed on usb stick. Next will have to try the f2f's for flash drives.

My wife asked if I was looking at a new os up up precise having fun with words Laughing

PostPosted: Thu 21 Mar 2013, 03:23    Post subject: looking forward to gtk-3.0  

Hi Pemasu,
later gnumeric 1.12 seems now requiring gtk-3.0. I do not know if feasable to compile iti with gtk-2.0.
gnumeric 1.12 has new functionnalities like export features (not present on 1.10.17).
So gtk-2.0 would not allow to get better than gnumeric version 1.10.17.

Some Puppies have now gtk-3.0 (i.e forum member ttuuxxx's latest Puppy 2.14; as also LxPup-Full ).

Are there plans to have gtk-3.0 in Precise (or even in wheezy?)?

i got a try installing debian-sid's gnumeric-1.12 on wheezy --> i began to try installing gtk-3.0 on wheezy; after installing the requested deps, i got a message telling about some incompatibilities --> i gave up --> maybe better to forget having gtk-3.0 on wheezy..??

Thanks for any comment
Charlie

Charlie6. I do not have plan to include gtk-3. But if you install the needed libs and stuff, I think you get gtk-3 needed apps working atm.

I dont have plan to update gnumeric atm also. The reason. I do use LibreOffice and I am not very experienced gnumeric - goffice - abiword compiler. I did compile them for dpup wheezy, but that was my only one so far. In dpup exprimos I did even strip them off.

Never say never and so on....but atm...I dont have much ambition to update them.
Sorry.

Hi ally,

Pemasu has already built in "eee.ko" into this realease and it works perfectly.
Regarding JWM, I have made it machine specific, that is I used "march=native" for CFLAGS as opposed to "mtune=native" in the howto, so if your cpu is Atom, it should work on your board. Although, I'm not totally sure. I can upload it, no big deal. Before I do, though I strongly urge you to have a look at this excellent tutorial, that makes compiling JWM a piece of cake: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=692046#692046

Pemasu, there is a PDF issue discussed here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=84748&start=90
that led me to check other pups. I found your 3.8.3.1 and also your
Wheezy have problems as well. In fact, Wheezy only displays page 1
of 27. Your Precise doesn't display any of the many graphical
illustrations. You can use Slacko 5.5 as a reference since it works.

Artsown. Yeah. Libpoppler and libpoppler-glib is too old. It would need newer version. How I opened that pdf so that the illustrations also showed. I installed google-chrome and then I edited /root/Choices/MIME-types/application_pdf to open pdf in google-chrome.

It showed those illustrations just fine. Nothing hilarious. Experiments with living animals is not my favourite suspect.

Upup Precise-3.8.3.1

For those of you who have stored some of your old laptops, notebooks and the like... go dig em out!

I decided to try this new Precise-3.8.3.1 on my old notebook...

IBM Thinkpad Model T22
513MB RAM (I just received new RAM chips I ordered from ebay... Japan I believe... advertised as 512MB... however after installing I get 513MB?)
20GB HDD.

I booted Precise-3.8.3.1 strictly from the CD and created a savefile to the HDD - I find this a good way to have multiple Puppy distro's for easy access and testing.

Well... the old T22 seemed to fall in love with Precise-3.8.3.1 as 'EVERYTHING' works OTB without a single issue and the speed is up to par as with other newer puppy builds!

Works really well and the 'no issues' really surprised me and believe me, I test a lot of puppy builds on this old box...

Good job Pemasu!

Hi pemasu,
Fresh manual frugal install to vfat/f2fs USB2 stick.Syslinux 4.04 boot with kernel held on 16Meg 1st partition and savefile (ext4) & sfs files on 2nd f2fs partition.
Initial boot to desktop with working sound,wired ethernet and Nouveau driver at correct res. (1920x1080)

The following pets & sfs were installed and tested.
    PETS
    lxtask-0.1.4|LXTask task manager
    tempiconsvg-0.17-i486|no description provided
    lxtask-0.1.4|LXTask task manager
    PupSnap-1.8_Scrot-0.8_32Bit|PupSnap screen capture
    pupsaveconfig-2.2.5|PupSave personal storage setup
    video-info-glx-1.5.1-noarch|OpenGL Graphics/CPU Report
    chromium-25.0.1323.1-i686-1sl|Browse the Web
    thunderbird-16.0.1|Thunderbird mail reader
    pupsaveconfig-2.2.5|PupSave personal storage setup
    faenza_lrx_new|
    flashplayer11-11.2.202.275|Adobe Flash Player 11 browser plugin and Preferences. Note, this may not work on older PCs, use instead an earlier 11.x or even 10.x
    Roxterm-1.17.1-Lucid|Use the command line with copy & paste
    smplayer-0.8.3-precise|Add file(s) to the SMPlayer playlist
    smtube-1.5-precise|Search and download videos from YouTube
    xdotool-2.20110530.1-3|no description provided
    tickr-0.6.0-i686|RSS Feed Reader

    SFS
    qt-4.8.2.sfs

This is the fastest booting Pup I have tested to date. I was almost tempted to create an f2fs partition on my SSD - "Honey I shrunk my NTFS partition" but will await the improvements to f2fs in the 3.9 kernel. Laughing Laughing
Very well done.
