Hi, Dan.

Am I correct in concluding that the mplayer is set up (compiled??) to not to work in the console framebuffer?

I'm not sure what are the compiling options. This is how mplayer was compiled on my old PIII machine following Fred's instruction:
http://ip-208-109-22-214.ip.secureserver.net/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=778356&sid=08e0191f7e52cff7f3ad3210b8c68920#778356
After that "strip -s mplayer" was executed.
Compiling on my hardware was needed to make it work on very old hardware. Fred uploaded few testing mplayer2 files first and any of them wasn't working for me till mplayer2 was compiled on my machine.

Hi, Meshworks.

I'm sure Fred will answer proper to your question.
My guess is Porteus is Slackware based and it should be compatible with Slackware headers. Till you get better answer here some ready for use modules from porteus for kernel 3.13.6:
http://dl3.porteus.org/i486/archive/Porteus-v3.0/drivers/
Maybe the amd driver will work for you.

Toni

hehehehe ty Saintless - love ur avatar!

I chose this distro because I thought it was debian based ... that's right yes?!?!
ED: ooh.. just checked the porteus.org site ... ur right its slackware!

ty for the link ... ill try that driver over the next hour (sloooow wifi here) and come back with result,

Would still like the correct kernel header files so i can compile other drivers.

ED: OMG now I'm properly confused again ... I have setup the compiler out of the debian repo (all seems well) and im about to set up a driver from a slackware source. So ... Can we rename this distro 'bastard-dog' due to the multiple parentage?! (joke)

Don't be confused Smile
It is still Debian but if I'm correct you are using Fred's Porteus-Wheezy - it is Debian with kernel from Porteus and using systemd boot. Since the kernel is from Porteus (or Slackware based) you can't use Debian headers here. Otherwise the system is debian and all packages are downloaded and installed from debian repository. Excluding the kernel related stuff Porteus-Wheezy is Debian Wheezy.
For 100% Debian Wheezy with Debian kernel, headers, etc use DebianDog - OpenBox or Jwm version.
We have also Puppy kernel available if you like to experiment.

Thanks Saintless ... The driver seems to load (change of res in the bootup text) but leads to a black screen which will not CTRL-ALT-BKSPACE.

Conflict with the builtin driver?!

As you (correctly) guessed I'm currently on porteus wheezy..

GTG for an hour or two ... Should I try DebianDog when I get back? or is there a way to resolve this black screen?

TY again.

Hi, Meshworks.

Unfortunately I use very old hardware and I can't test personally the problem you have. I suggest wait for a day or two till Fred reads your posts before changing to DebianDog. Maybe he will have some solution for the black screen issue or give some advice to test something more.

We had one similar problem with amd driver with DebianDog and all I can do for the moment is to point the related posts:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=791519#791519
The answer to this method:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=791886#791886
And more information links and suggestion for testing:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=793228#793228

If you decide to test DebianDog googling for amd/ati driver compiling problem for Debian is what you need. All solutions for Debian are fully compatible the same way for DebianDog.

Toni

Hi Meshworks,
I don't really know much about installing drivers so can't help you with that.
Anyway here's a .deb for installing the kernel headers version 3.13.6
linux-headers-3.13.6-porteus_i386.deb is here:

https://googledrive.com/host/0ByBgCDlZZ8K5bUsxVnhCTkhoZDA/Porteus-Wheezy/Packages/
Install by opening a terminal in the folder you downloaded the deb and do:
Code:
dpkg -i linux-headers-3.13.6-porteus_i386.deb


It works well for me installing the virtualbox kernel modules, didn't test more.
Good luck!

Edit: As Toni suggested maybe it's better to install DebianDog for 100% debian compatibility.
In fact the only difference is the kernel version, for the rest it's the same (and you have choice for different boot-methods including porteus-boot and choice of two desktop environments, Jwm or openbox_xfce)

Fred

Hi Toni,
Here's a way to keep flashplayer-choice up-to-date when version 11 is changed on http://smokey01.com/OscarTalks/
function flasplayer11:
Code:
# As long flashplayer is at version 11.xxx this should work even when OscarTalks updates it.
flasplayer11() {
mkdir /usr/lib/mozilla
mkdir /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
# Sort of wildcard workaround for wget: 'flashplayer11*'
wget -r -e robots=off -nd -l1 -A "flashplayer11*" http://smokey01.com/OscarTalks/
# Create variable to continue
FLASH=$(ls flashplayer11*)
mv $FLASH ${FLASH}.tar.gz
tar -zxvf ${FLASH}.tar.gz
rm -f ${FLASH}.tar.gz
# Strip .pet from filename to get directory name.
DIRFLASH=$(echo "${FLASH}" | sed '$s/....$//')
mv $DIRFLASH/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
rm -fr $DIRFLASH
}

now in vesa graphics with radeon blacklisted...

copied amd-catalyst-14.3_beta-porteus-v3.0-i486-1ftm.xzm
... and reboot

thought it would work ... but again black screen lockup.

I should really be using a pae version... heres my laptop ... which distro / kernel suits best? I'm gonna try debiandog tomoz.

Thanks for posting the result, Meshworks!
Please, read the first two post here before starting with DebianDog.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=93225
This is from the first post.

DebianDog has kernel 3.2.0-4-486. If it works for your hardware you need nothing more. If it doesn't, please, read here how to boot easy with different kernel.
For modern multi-core machines it will be better to use (026-kernel-3.14-Pae.tar.gz - Debian kernel-3.14-0.bpo.1-686-Pae) or (022-kernel-686-pae.zip - Debian kernel-3.2.0-4-686-Pae) separate module from the link above.

If you have troubles booting with separate pae kernel module write here or in DebianDog thread. Maybe this post will help you also about booting with kernel-3.14-0.bpo.1-686-Pae:

PostPosted: Fri 05 Sep 2014, 10:08    Post subject: New version of flite_hts_engine uploaded
Subject description: good quality TTS in small deb package
 

flite_hts_engine is a reasonably good quality Text To Speech (TTS) synthesiser in an incredibly small package considering it includes the voice data (approx 1.6MB download).

New version (deb package for DebianDog and dotpet for Puppy), that seems to have fixed the problem of occasional garbled text can be downloaded, for now at least, via its main thread post here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=365897&search_id=904424505#365897

flite_hts_engine does have some limitations, as briefly discussed in that post, however, the relatively good voice quality compared to say standard flite, makes it very useful and the limitations could be worked around via more sophisticated driving scripts.

Cheers, William
