L18L, I'm looking at your updated scripts and comments.
I've built the latest internationalised version of dialogs - no problem.
What's the problem with Xdialog? I can display utf8 strings - it seems to work ok?

Joe - what's the bootloader used by YUMI? If it's GRUB then you'll have to look at either menu.lst or grub.cfg

laurentius77 -
2) The current build process makes it impossible to do so. You can try slackbone64 if you want it now. This is on todo list for Fatdog64 700.
3) I think kirk found out the issue was about internal encryption of these atheros cards. What's the driver being used? It may be possible to turn hardware encryption off and use software's one from wpa_supplicant.
You also asked) "Maybe someone have a woof-ce for this distro, I'm also interested in this". Not woof, but Fatdog's own build system. Here: http://www.ibiblio.org/fatdogscm/cgi-bin/fatdog64.cgi/index

Scotchialoo - we're not going to update glibc at this stage. Yes it is old, but so is the the other libs. We update what we can without affecting others too much --- glibc is used by *all* apps so it's definitely a no-no.

gcmartin - if I recall correctly, the latest pburn requires the latest gtkdialog too ...


Thank you jamesbond.
I use ath9k wireless driver. I noticed disconnection problems even for wpa+tkip, when I got an error in logs like "radio carrier lost" from the wifi card. I searched the internet and I found that enabling "nolink" option in dhcpd.conf may help in solve the problem. I put "nolink" option in dhcpd.conf and I can connect now using wpa2+ccmp, I will monitor it from now in order to see if there will be disconnections from now on.

L18L, attached is internationalised version of Xdialog. I will move the Xdialog binary to the main repo, but I will leave out the locale (and the docs) (otherwise it is unfair - all other apps have their locales excluded too :p). Its locale can be merged and bundled with the langpacks. What do you think?

laurentius77 - thanks for the tip.

How far has Fatdog 64 come with the more difficult UEFI
laptops that people have contacted you two about.

Or you have had the chance to borrow or install on
to see what works and what not.

I have now postponed to the far future any buy
due to this dreaded computer lock in they try to force us to.

Sure I can do that another year or two Smile
Because most likely those I have will work
for two years more but are getting old now.

nooby,

Sorry I don't remember the laptop you refer to. I have installed on Dell 13z, 14z, and Inspiron 3520. All with Windows 8 and secure boot enabled. Those are my wife's and kids laptops. The 14z gave me a problem, when booting from usb it would hang just after grub2, never found out why. Ended up disabling secure boot, then booting up using legacy mode, and installing to the harddrive. Then I re-enabled secure boot and all worked well. I've also booted on most of the laptops that the local walmart sells. Seems like about 7 out 9 worked there, that's without trying to work around any problems or disabling secure boot.

That is reassuring. Thanks. No hurry just wanted latest to be up to date
on this problem.

We have a lot of different brands here.
Here is a Sony Vaio that would be cool to buy now on Friday the 29 of Novembr when I am in Big City. Cost only 2990 SEK which is 454.77 USD

Very cheap for 14" Intel Pentium B987Dual core 4GB RAM mem
and 500GB Intel Graphics HDMI Ms Win 8 64 bit

I wish I knew it if works with FatDog. current version,

Locale files in langpack only is ok.

For the record:
Maintainer of languagepack can download from po directory of source and format it where xx is language code ex: es or it:
Code:
msgfmt xx.po -o - > /usr/share/locale/xx/LC_MESSAGES/Xdialog.mo

If there is no po file for the language: download pot file to /usr/share/doc/nls/Xdialog/ and translate it using momanager.


By the way, as I have been installing my puppy langpack_de before Xdialog.mo has been immediately used.

The plan is: everyone uses puppy's langpack and one additional fatdog langpack. Any thoughts?

Sub_title: errors on startup
 

I've installed User Mode Linux (UML) Environment (linux_uml and uml-utilities) from repository.
Trying to launch it using start-uml.sh in console, I receive these:
Code:
start-uml.sh -v

Is UML supposed to work in FD64-630 or just in 620 version?
Is there a way to having working in 630?
Thanks.

font size reduced from 12 to 10 to maintain similar appearance to previous versions

Where if anywhere in FD can I revert back to 12 size font to see what an original web page looks like.
Haven't used Doze since finding Puppy.

L18L,

Where can I get the latest standalone momanager? I'm thinking to get it in to Fatdog's devx so it's easier for everyone who wishes to translate.

Excellent, this means that your idea of puppy base langpack + fatdog's one will work.

Quote:

I'm fine with the idea. I'll leave other translators to comment, though.

As for zarfy, I'm thinking of a good workable solution. Zarfy is one of the programs that are no longer maintained - others are hardinfo, xdialog, xarchivers, etc ... that do have irritating bugs that never get fixed because, well, nobody is at the helm anymore. Yet they are important programs. I don't like to maintain patches; so I'm thinking that perhaps I should upload a public source repository for these apps (ala Woof-CE). The thing is, I may not have the time to maintain them.

laurentius77,

It works in 630. Your problem is here:
Quote:
ifconfig: bad address '192.168.2.310'
route: resolving 192.168.2.311

Notice the IP address ends with 310 and 311? That won't work (IP address number can't exceed 254).
Where does this address comes from? It comes from your existing IP address (which I guess is 192.168.2.211), added by 100 (and the minus one).
How to fix it? Two choices:
- you can create a permanent uml-instance, then edit the "config" file, and change HOST_IP to something else (e.g. 192.168.2.10) ... it can be anything as long as the first 3 numbers are the same as your real host IP adddress.
- you can edit /usr/bin/start-uml.sh and change HOST_IP near the top of the script to something else.
- of course, the third solution (which probably isn't a choice for you) is to make sure that the last number of your host IP address is less than 150.

I have been starting to internationalize zarfy-0.1.0
However, I did not find out how to gettext the red marked items.

Anyhow I have attached the C files which I have changed.
