Can't seem to get wifi working. If I select setup and wifi configuration - then enter "root" as password nothing happens. Did I forget how to use this??
cheers!

Same here. I tried to set it up from the slitaz config tool, my wifi is found, but no connection.
The wifi-config does not work; this in terminal:
Quote:
sh-4.4# tazbox su wifi-box
/usr/bin/tazbox: line 837: /usr/bin/wifi-box: Permission denied
/usr/bin/tazbox: line 837: exec: /usr/bin/wifi-box: cannot execute: Permission denied


I had no pupsave in beta 2, as others reported. This has been solved in beta 3.

I was looking for the kenal sources for a slightly older version of TazPup. I found my kernal version at:
http://smokey01.com/huge_kernel/4.17.0/

I'm not sure if it is compatible or not with tazpup.

Edit

Just as some background, previously I was looking for the kernal sources for the virtual-box guest additions. Currently, I'm trying to compile Tor. According to one of the comments in the c file limits.h was supposed to be part of the kernal sources. I found it at the following path:

/usr/src/linux/usr/include/linux

I added the following environmental variable:

Code:

export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/include -I/usr/src/linux/usr/include"

On a new frugal install this morning, I was having the same issue, Setup >Wifi configuration is not being run after entering root password.

If you click on the tray network icon, then click "Configure" button, then enter root password, this will bring up TazPanel, which will allow the network configuration to be completed.

New frugal install of Beta 3 to USB Flash drive using UEFI. Apart from the network config workaround being required, all is working well. Date/Time setting is OK. New Save Folder successfully created. System update,er 78 packages were updated, I noticed a couple of missing dependencies, were identified and installed by the Package Manager.

So thanks again mistfire. Well done, an excellent puppy.

Thanks for the tip. That did allow my wifi to connect (posting from it now) - although the network icon still seems to be showing non-connection (unless that is just the ethernet icon?)

Latest version looking pretty good - wifi config now working.

I could do with some help making changes to the main Tazpup.sfs as I only plan to run tazpup "live" - with no persistence.

I don't like "tap-to-click" being on as a default so I turned it off by using a urxvt terminal to enter the following command:

#synclient MaxTapTime=0

Then I tried to create a new tazpup.sfs containing this change permanently. I copied the file puppy_tazpup_5.0.sfs from CD to /home/tux and entering the following command:
unsquashfs /home/tux/puppy_tazpup_5.0.sfs and it created a "squashfs-root" directory but also threw up a whole bunch of errors such as the following:

Code:
create_inode: could not create character device squashfs-root/dev/vcsa3, because you're not superuser!
create_inode: could not create character device squashfs-root/dev/vcsa4, because you're not superuser!
create_inode: could not create character device squashfs-root/dev/vcsa5, because you're not superuser!
create_inode: could not create character device squashfs-root/dev/vcsa6, because you're not superuser!
create_inode: could not create character device squashfs-root/dev/vcsa7, because you're not superuser!


Then I tried to find the synclient config file within the squashfs-root directory but no success.

I may have asked this before - but can anyone explain how I can correctly unsquash the main tazpup.sfs, modify the synclient settings, resquash the tazpup.sfs and reburn the CD containing the updated main sfs please? (maybe even a tutorial in a separate thread?)

I feel Tazpup is getting very close to the state where I could use it live from CD as long as I know how to lock in some personalisations onto the CD without installing to disk.

cheers!

Hi greengeek.

Unsquash / resquash are easy to do from command line. (Sorry in advance
if you already know this.)

0) Don't forget to make back-ups before you begin? Smile

1) find a free partition where you have enough room, approx. 3-4 times
the size of the sfs,

2) copy the tazpup sfs there

3) open a terminal there and

4) type:
Code:
unsquashfs -d puppy_tazpup_5.0 puppy_tazpup_5.0.sfs
This creates a directory bearing the name of the sfs.
(Note: I had no errors.)

5) Now you have an uncompressed copy. You do your changes inside the copy.
Code:
man synclient
indicates:
Quote:
Files
/etc/X11/xorg.conf
/etc/X11/XF86Config-4

6) To resquash after your changes are done, the usual one-liner is:
Code:
mksquashfs puppy_tazpup_5.0 puppy_tazpup_5.0.sfs -noappend -all-root -comp xz
Notes: i) The above line will overwrite your original sfs.
ii) In my test, the sfs it resquashed was 2 Mb's bigger than the original,
although I did not change anything.

7) Then you copy this edited sfs to the main tazpup directory or
incorporate it into a new iso with ISOMaster for re-creation.

IHTH.

Thanks musher0 - when i usually unsquashfs/mksquashfs puppy sfs it has been my habit to keep the sfs in /root as i have all of my disks unmounted during such operations (in other words I do all of my sfs rebuilds in RAM only). Do you think this method is the source of my Tazpup unsquash errors?

Is Tazpup handling /home/taz differently to the way puppy handles /root?

Do you think I should use my normal puppy to do the unsquash/mksquash rather than trying to do it from within a running Tazpup?

cheers!

@greengeek in order to modify puppy sfs files in TazPuppy, you must need a root permission by logging in to root account. All you have to do was logout and login as root (default pasword: root). Tux is just a user account not a root account. @musher0 procedure is correct but applicable only to root account.

TazPuppy is a true multiuser linux distro like other major linux distro.

Thanks musher0 - when i usually unsquashfs/mksquashfs puppy sfs it has been my habit to keep the sfs in /root as i have all of my disks unmounted (2a) during such operations (in other words I do all of my sfs rebuilds in RAM only) (2b).

Hi greengeek.

First, thanks to mistfire for the remark concerning users in tazpup.

Keeping in mind his remark, I'll try to answer your new questions.
~~~

1-2) I prefer to work from a copy because I'm a cluts! This way if I
make a blunder, no harm is done to the main Puppy.

If you are not a cluts Wink, you can unsquash and edit the main sfs of any
Puppy in said Puppy anywhere. But never attempt to resquash over a
running Puppy sfs, you will get into big trouble. (I know this from
experience!)

~~~

2a) Other partitions mounted / unmounted do not matter. mksquashfs is
a very solid and much tested app: it is not known to leak memory or to
syphon bytes from anywhere.
~~~

2b) RAM copy vs disk copy does not matter per se, although it is well
known that working entirely in RAM is faster.
~~~

3) If you need add'l info about "user tux" vs "user root", please ask
mistfire. I've always worked as "root", so I can't help you with that.
~~~

4) Do the resquashing and the final replacement of the old sfs with the
edited sfs from another Puppy.

Really another Pup, because even if you boot a pristine tazpup without
a save file or folder, it is the main tazpup sfs you are replacing, so
there is no way around it: you have to replace it from another Pup or
Linux. (Same goes for resquashing any Puppy.)

Exception -- If you have only one pup, you can do it if you boot from
CD
with the "pfix=ram" setting and replace its main sfs on HD.
Because technically, that will not be exactly the same Pup: the main Pup
sfs on CD is active whereas the main Pup sfs on HD is inactive.
(Needless to say: after this replacement is done, you have to reboot
from HD with the edited main pup sfs. I hope this is clear.)
~~~

IHTH.

@musher0 if you want a smaller sfs file aside from setting the comp to xz, set the block size to 1M on mksquashfs. Take note using 1M block size tooks a long time to compress so be patient
