Hardinfo seems to be broken.

Hi Billtoo

Hardinfo is there and works - its in the menu under System -> System -> System Profile and Benchmark (Porteus hangover I guess).

Cheers

Hi peebee

Hardinfo works until I ask it to generate a report which causes it to crash.

Thanks

I downloaded and compiled hardinfo-0.5.1.tar.gz from sourceforge.
It generates a report okay.

Thanks

Ze olde >>>puppy lxpup64_15.05 sfs not found >> problem.

Gee! never seen that.

I only experienced it once with one ttuuxxx release of

2.14x ...should have investigated it more.

:::::::::

I normally name Pups in lowercase...

so I have LxPup64 named as >>> lxpup64

Looking at this I solved my Lucid 529 newer release from
continuing the same behaviour as >> LxPup64.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=98772&start=15

from mikeslr ..... pmedia=ataflash

so my working Lucid is now.

title Lucid529 2015 (sdc1/lucid529)
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /lucid529/initrd.gz
kernel /lucid529/vmlinuz pmedia=ataflash psubdir=lucid529 pfix=fsck
initrd /lucid529/initrd.gz

Any other Lucid is pmedia=usbflash
Two other Lucids on this usb ...never had a problem before.

:::::

So I first tried modifying

title LxPup 64 2015 (sdc1/lxpup64)
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /lxpup64/initrd.gz
kernel /lxpup64/vmlinuz pmedia=usbflash psubdir=lxpup64 pfix=fsck
initrd /lxpup64/initrd.gz

No...fails to find the sfs.

Re-worked it to cheat like Lucid.

title LxPup 64 2015 (sdc1/lxpup64)
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /lxpup64/initrd.gz
kernel /lxpup64/vmlinuz pmedia=ataflash psubdir=lxpup64 pfix=fsck initrd /lxpup64/initrd.gz

Same result.

I even copied the >>> puppy lxpup64_15.05 sfs
into the root of the usb.

Suggestions....

Chris.

Hi Chris

Just tried booting from a usb stick - I had no problems - stick was fat32 formatted - subdirectory was called puppy - contents (4 files) were:
Code:
initrd.gz  puppy_lxpup64_15.05.sfs  vmlinuz  zdrv_lxpup64_15.05.sfs

menu.lst entry was:
Code:
title Puppy
  find --set-root --ignore-floppies /puppy/initrd.gz
  kernel /puppy/vmlinuz  pmedia=usbflash psubdir=puppy pfix=fsck
  initrd /puppy/initrd.gz

Failed to boot with the above changes.

I should read my own replies though.

Decided for a laugh to use one of the rear ports.

Booted...posting from it now.

I will redo my menu list with the original settings
just to see if it boots.

::::::::::::;;;;

" I should read my own replies though."

Don't you hate it that you forget the basics sometimes....aghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks mate....Chris.

::::::::

I still can't get these 2 Pups on this particular usb to complete booting
on a Dell laptop and a 2.5 dual core Gigabyte desktop.

Both Puppies refuse to see the sfs files.

Just tested a 2014 Super Lupu on the dual core..it boots.
no problems from the same usb....

Is this an oversight/deliberate?

And, tracking (with finger on touchscreen) not added.

Same here. Kernel modules are not loading consistently, yet it starts right up. After a couple of re-starts, it seemed to improve. Overall, I really like it. Firewall still gets lost between boots (slacko64). Easy to fix (first-run wizard) by moving rc.firewall from /tmp to /etc/rc.d and symlinking /usr/local/firewallstate/firewallstaterun to the startup folder. It doesn't hinder network discovery at all.

Mounted iso and dragged contents to a usb stick. Changed pmedia=cd in grub2 to pmedia=usbflash and that worked really well. Unless pmedia is specified, savedir isn't found. Lighthouse is the same: adding wait for usb doesn't help. It wants the savefile/folder on the hard-drive/partition. Actually, it's another pretty easy fix with an extra line & boot parameter in grub or isolinux.cfg

Links from the browser homepage to help files in usr/doc point to non-existent files.

I didn't see acpid in there. Suspend to ram doesn't work for me, but all the other power management functions are good. It may also be a glitch in the kernel modules.

There's really not much left to do to finalize this puppy. thanks. I'm going to look for that devx.

df

edit. rc.firewall also needs to reside in /etc/init.d.

ps. no change window manager under startlxde. Must log out. I thought I saw a ui text option, but then it went missing.

Started over with clean frugal to hard drive. No more problem with acpi/suspend. First run ram created savefolder within a LxPup64 directory, which threw me for a loop at first. Needed to add psubdir=LxPup64 to grub entry. Otherwise, init cannot find the basefile. Not sure why except LxPup64 system files and grub are on a different partition altogether.

Only moved /tmp/rc.firewall to /etc/init.d after running the wizard and it now starts right up every boot. You might add this to the script.

Found Desktop session settings again. It says "openbox-lxde" but to start from the console, you must enter "xwin startlxde" to return to the default desktop. Curious. Also event manager ui was a trip to find in the menu. I was just used to finding it under "Desktop".

@PeeBee, or anyone. Have you advice for USB connecting a smartPhone/smartTable to this distro?

Thanks in advance for steps to follow.

Just wondering? Has anyone had luck getting Google Talk (Gmail phone) working in this 64 bit version? I've run out of things to try (and I've tried a lot) without results. Crying or Very sad
