X-Tahr-2.0 is based on tahrpup-6.0.5 with 3.14.56 PAE kernel. I had no problem running virtualbox-4.3.12-1.sfs, here's what I did:

1) load devx_tahr_6.0.5.sfs
2) load kernel_sources-3.14.56-tahr_PAE_6.0.5.sfs
3) load virtualbox-4.3.12-1.sfs
4) run virtualbox

Virtualbox with Puppy Linux never tried at home. Questions were asked about it in french section of our forum. I will try it
Until now, i preferred to install the requested Puppy OS beside existing ones, because Virtualbox (under Windows 7) is only useful for taking a glance. . Lot of boring troubles with mouse in Virtual box... Wait and see, nothing is better than a try.

Hello, rg66 -

I'm a half-arse'd tinkerer who's been working up a remaster of your X-Tahr 2.0, and everything is looking really, really great... except for one issue I keep running into;

When pasting/replacing a large number of "system-ish" files from one directory to another (such as copying over the /temp/root/ dir with the running /root/ dir during remaster) - the system semi-locks up, desktop background blinks on/off then eventually turns blank/grey, one of two CPU cores spikes and stays at 100%, and the task manager shows what I recall as gvfs-metadata (jeez... I think that's what it was... Embarassed ) process as the culprit.

Even happened while deleting files from a just-inserted USB flash drive while preparing it for a fresh install.

Fortunately, I'm usually able to get through the remainder of the remastering, and a reboot (without saving) or a manual killing of the process and restart of X seems to set things straight again.

Any idea what that might be about, or any fix?

Other than that, your X-Tahr is simply great!! Thanks so much for this beaut!! Cool

Bob

Hi Moat,

Ya, the villain is indeed gvfs-metadata. It's a gnome thing for sharing data between apps but especially on my Pentium Ms it gae oft astray. You can temporarily clean it up by killing it and cleaning out its directory in /root/.local/share but I usually disable it (and accept the minor consequences) by creating a directory named unused in /usr/share/dbus-1/services and cutting and pasting the file gvfs-metadata.service from the services dir into the unused bucket. You need to create a whiteout file to 'cover' it so IIRC deleting or cut/paste works, moving doesn't. This kludge is easily reversible and any consequences in my experience are also reversible. Not limited to this pup by any means. I usually re-enable it for my 'users', kind of a coin-flip.

Hey Marv - thanks for the reply Cool

Yeah, I think I'll just clean out the /root/.local/share/gvfs-metadata/ directory as you mention, and leave the .service in place. It's something I'm now rather used to dealing with, and completely disabling it appears (after a bit of Googling) as if it may lead to other copy/paste/mount issues. Better safe than sorry, I suppose!

Maybe a little shell script to kill it when it gets out of hand - say, accessible from a taskbar button - would be a spiffy way to deal with it...

Just a bit of a wart on this otherwise seemingly perfect Puppy!

Thanks!!

Bob

FWIW, I just ran and completed a remaster immediately after deleting the contents of the '/root/.local/share/gvfs-metadata/' directory as you (Marv) suggested - went perfectly, for I believe the first time ever - with no odd behavior/blinking background/gvfs process runaway. Cool! Cool
