After running it Live 24/7 for 3 months, The /tmp/xerrs.log got to a really large size 11GB. I deleted it and restartX but xwin,startx or xorgwizard wouldn't work. I was forced to reboot live again, Just wondering why Xerrs gets so large and why we can't just delete it, Used to be able to delete years back, It was just made a new one automatically, but doesn't work on slacko, Maybe next time I might delete it and manually make a file with the same name. Smile and see if that works.

Hi, ttuuxxx.

How have you been doing? Smile

Now you have to go to the main console with Alt+Ctrl+Backspace before you
delete the xerrs log manually with:
Code:
rm -i /tmp/xerrs.log

and then restart with the usual
Code:
xwin <blablawm>
Smile
and WM re-launches normally.

Speaking of xerrs.log, did you notice any entries like
Quote:
XError: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) id: 5185723

OR
Quote:
(2.1pre1/panel.c:769) Unknown XEvent (type: 65, win: 10515580)

in yours? I get lots of those... My slacko-6.0b has been up only half a day and
it's already bigger than 675k.

The "XError: BadWindow" error seems harmless, if you search on the Web,
but it's still annoying.

Merry Xmas, BTW!

Ughh. No way to know now. My guess is that it is stupid gtk messages ... remember that we couldn't build with --debug=no due to some weird Seamonkey issue (--debug=minimum was the lowest that you could use without the insert key closing it out) ... then gtk went and changed glib and gtk to a barely usable state that emits loads of warnings. I am debating between using tcl/tk or lua/tekui instead of bash/gtkdialog

Hello, all.

I hope that your Christmas was indeed "merry"! Smile

I discovered that the error
Quote:
(2.1pre1/panel.c:769) Unknown XEvent (type: 65, win: 10515580)

is linked to the bmpanel2 bar that is used with pekwm.

If I launch bmpanel2 this way
Code:
bmpanel2 --theme=flora-blue.mod > /dev/null 2>&1

the error goes away.

BFN.

Hi, technosaurus.

Euh... my understanding of why xerrs.log fills up, is because there are errors either
in the programming, compilation or execution of programs including the X server.

If your lua or tcl/tk or gtk program (the language doesn't matter, really) suffers
from sloppy programming, compiling or execution, the xerrs.log will collect those
errors until they are solved... My 2¢...

Hi, guys.

More about controlling error reporting to xerrs.log here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=817290&sort=lastpost#817290

I think it's better to have a separate thread about this.

All contributions welcome.

BFN.

Would it work to empty the contents of the file (retaining the actual file with its original creation time/date/permissions) rather than creating a new empty one? Any idea why slacko cant handle your method when presumably other pups might? (just wondering 'cos I use Slacko for various derivatives..)

Hi, greengeek.

I'd venture to say that it's the sheer size of it! Wow, 11 Mg's of errors and various
outputs... Shocked

I made a wacom bamboo graphic driver package for Slacko.

Just install it and restart X. Then set your app to recognize pressure.
No 'modprobe wacom' is needed.

PostPosted: Sat 03 Jan 2015, 21:39    Post subject: Slacko 5.9.3 gives Black Screen of Death after splash screen
Subject description: But if you wait long enough, it eventually gets U to the GUI desktop
 

I heard about Slacko 5.9.3 and downloaded the iso. burned it to CD, and did a frugal install to my new box and my old one. I converted the old slacko 5.7 storage files to the newest version and copied software files from live CD to hard disk to help speed the next boot. My new box comes up fine, but the old box gives me the puppy splash screen, then goes into a black screen w. blinking cursor in top left corner, and stays that way for about 1 minute, then up comes the gui desktop. Is there anyway to set some boot parameter to verbose so I can see what it is delaying on (testing for hard drives, etc.) during the black screen of death time? Most users would give up on the boot, and pull the plug during this black screen wait time. I dont want that to happen to such a promising release as this.

Is this with your "old files" also loading? If yes, try to boot with "puppy pfix=ram" as a boot option.
I guess the old machine was fine with 5.7. What are the specs of this hardware?

Hello.

This may be of interest for French-speaking Puppyists using slacko 6: a French
localization done specifically for slacko 6, dated 2014-12-18.

Thanks to member esmourguit for creating / assembling this translation package and
to member Médor for pointing me to it.

ftp://download.tuxfamily.org/toutou/5xx/internationalisation/Slacko_6./langpack_fr-20141218-Slacko_6.pet
(3.8Mb)

Spread the word ? Thanks. BFN.
