PostPosted: Fri 23 May 2014, 04:08    Post subject: Bug in current Shutdown processing  

Bug Report
when shutting down, if I choose to change folder at shutdown "Sanity Check" to /mnt/sda2/Slacko57, the system WILL NOT save the session. Hitting the Yes, Save button will quickly move from X-desktop to the console window. I see a terminal message of unable to save session and exiting without save. Again it ONLY happens when I change the folder to where i want the save-session to be saved. The following does not create the save-session.

But, if I leave the original "root" (ie "/") and accept the Summary without changing, the shutdown processing will create the save session in the root of the drive.

Here to help.

Slacko was booted Pristine from a CD. The HDD is ext4 formatted partition. All works well without changes to the screen which present ONLY "/" initially, BUT if you change the directory to what is show in the pic, for example, the save-session will NOT save to the "change" directory which is shown in the picture (namely /mnt/sda2/Slacko57).

BTW, rebooting and moving the items Shutdown placed in root to the target folder manually, the system finds his save-session on a subsequent reboot (as it does normally). So, the placement of the save-session does not matter at boot time whether it is in the root or the target directory. Further, the system saves all system updates to that changed directory's save-session file as you expect.

Question
Is there something that should be known about some preexisting PUPPY files in Slacko57-Final that would allow shutdown to behave one way when save-session to root directory and another way when save session to a non-root directory?

Hope this is clear for understanding

Hi Micko, I downloaded your slacko around 3 weeks back, I added Xine,VLC, flash,Chrome and gimp.
Yes Chrome, As you know I've always been a Firefox user, but lately The latest ones are really getting slow after they've they've been running for week. I addded adBlock to chrome and boy does that ever kill the ads on FB,Torrent sites, Popups, just makes the browsers work perfect all the time.
VLC,gimp runs great. Pretty much all you need. I did have some issues with slow repo servers.
I also Installed LxTask and pmusic plugin EQ. If I'm going to use a min music player a eq is a must Smile, LxTask is simple and easy to use. One of my favorite task managers.
This is a great release. I can't fault it on my end what so ever Smile Great work.
Jeff

Will I be able to update my slackosave.4fs for Slacko-5.5.91 to 5.7?
Does it make a difference if they're PAE or non PAE?

If you have a newer PC with over 4GB of memory then use the PAE (Physical Address Extension) if not use non-PAE.

I have a 2012 PC with 8GB RAM, so I'll use the PAE version.

I assume you think my slackosave.4fs will update OK.

Job done. Looking good. Very Happy

PostPosted: Mon 26 May 2014, 15:45    Post subject: Slacko57 PAE vs nonPAE  

Just concluded testing both Slacko57 versions on a 512MB RAM. Performance test results from Hardinfo show little differences in performance wtin PAE showing a slight edge. But, the PAE desktop performance appears snappier. Test for yourself to see what I share.


Since it has been my experiences in the past that desktop performance is CPU dependent along with graphic adapters, I would say that any user who uses either of these distro versions will see great performance no matter what.

Any recommendation of use of these distro should be one which recommends that if 512MB of RAM (as 01Micko recommends in his documentation of his distros), that/those recommendations should NOT be RAM based, but instead should be based upon CPU feature capability. PAE WORK! And testing over the years in the community has shown that when following the distro developer's recommendations, users will experience NO problems.

Anyone, who has a CPU with the PAE feature can use EITHER of the 2 Slacko distros! If your CPU does NOT have the PAE feature, one CANNOT use PAE. There are some PCs, Netbooks, and Laptops (notably a few Intels) which do not have the feature and therefore because they do not, they cannot use any distro which is PAE built.. Excepting for those, CPUs since 1995 do have the PAE feature built-in

There should be NO reservations in using PAE. It brings no penalty in its use. Again, if you have the feature, you can use either Slacko distro version and DO NOT EXPECT ANY DOWNSIDE IN YOUR USAGE. LInux PAE WORKS!!! And the PAE version of this distro allows your use NO MATTER HOW MUCH OR HOW LITTLE RAM YOU HAVE. PAE is NOT dependent on RAM size. while nonPAE is limited in this area.

Hope this is clear for anyone wanting to use SLACKOs and for anyone providing guidance to those wanting to use Slacko, a very wonderful distro!

I would recommend to use pEqualizer (also embedded inside pMusic (Playback menu). The EQ plugin is poor and is only meant as a 'proof of concept'.
