PostPosted: Tue 02 Jul 2019, 14:10    Post subject: gnomemplayer  

Bugged the heck out of me why gnomemplayer was working for everyone else and NOT me?

My setup is a follows (same for all other puppy's) I have.

1: I boot from a DVD copy of puppy - that's all that is on the DVD... the puppy .ISO

2: A savefolder is created on my HDD and that creates a /initrd/mnt/dev_save file on a selected partition (sda/1,sda/3,etc,etc,.)on the HDD. In there resides the MAIN savefolder for each puppy I have (in this case, 'upupddsave' with a graphic of the puppy logo) along with the- adrv_upupdd_19.04.sfs, fdrv_upupdd_19.04.sfs, zdrv_upupdd_19.04.sfs, and puppy_upupdd_19.04.sfs, also all other .sfs files I use for various puppy's (palemoon.sfs, firefox.sfs., etc,.)

When upupdd didn't play gnomeplayer, I deleted the savefolder and created a new one on the next boot... that didn't solve the problem in fact many many tries like this still produced negetive results.

Finally I tried deleting every upupdd file on the HDD and booted a fresh upupdd.iso from the DVD drive. Lo and behold I now had gnomeplayer working!!!

OK... added a few of my standard programs (copied from other puppy's where they are working) and everything seemed OK. The Palemoon.sfs from the menu wouldn't download from the menu, says no checksum or something like that but, firefox did so thats what I use, works nice too.

Now copied over (from another working puppy) 'Pwidgets.pet' - the 32 bit virsion (I believe 5Cool to my downloads file (I keep all major .pets there) clicked on it and upupdd install Pwidgets BUT would not display them on the desktop.

Decided to do a reboot... did it... upupdd seemed to load normally BUT only to a BLACK SCREEN with the computer froze up solid.

Several tries of this same procedure produced the exact same results so...

On the first tries just creating a new savefolder, somehow the - adrv_upupdd_19.04.sfs, fdrv_upupdd_19.04.sfs, zdrv_upupdd_19.04.sfs, and puppy_upupdd_19.04.sfs - must have become corrupt and not the 'savefolder' itself.

As for why Pwidgets locks up upupdd... have not been able to figure that one out? So... I use the old 'Conky-Switcher' program fro way back in Saluki Puppy and it works great.

Right now upupdd +10 is running like a swiss-clock with all major programs working great (except for Palemoon.sfs and of course pup/radio-pup/telly.

upupdd without doubt is the most responsive puppy ever produced to date IMHO and I tested a lot of puppy's since 214, like I said before... my collection on just CD's/DVD's could shingle someone's house, too bad it will end in Jan-2020 Smile

Subject description: Help with tray item
 

When I click the 'Terminal' icon in the tray, nothing happens.

I had used the Setup ->Default applications Chooser to set it to urxvt.

Thanks for any help.

Sheldon

No, but I will, and report back. Thank you, peebee.

later.
Booted Dingo with pfix=ram
Here is /usr/local/bin/defaultterminal
Quote:

#!/bin/sh
exec lxterminal "$@"


Then I changed /root/.jwm/jwmrc-tray2 to include
Code:
<TrayButton popup="asdfg" icon="rubix.png">exec lxterminal "$@"</TrayButton>


Saved and restarted X

Clicking on the icon did nothing.

My 19.04 +10 upupdd Grub4Dos install to SSD on the i5 based Fujitsu S761 updated to 19.04 +11 uneventfully. I was running with the 64b lxde 5.2.0 kernel in +10 and retained that in +11. Save file scrubbed and checked as usual. Dmesg failures or warnings examined and no changes found. CPU % and mem use at idle unchanged, video FPS excellent, SSD/memory throughput unchanged and only slightly slower than LxPupSc64 on this hardware.

Early loading of microcode from a shared folder continues to work correctly and mitigation on the second gen i5 (with the 5.2.0 kernel) is:
Code:
l1tf:Mitigation: PTE Inversion
mds:Mitigation: Clear CPU buffers; SMT vulnerable
meltdown:Mitigation: PTI
spec_store_bypass:Mitigation: Speculative Store Bypass disabled via prctl and seccomp
spectre_v1:Mitigation: __user pointer sanitization
spectre_v2:Mitigation: Full generic retpoline, IBPB: conditional, IBRS_FW, STIBP: conditional, RSB filling
Thanks for carrying on with upupdd. It's marvelously snappy on this hardware.

PostPosted: Wed 17 Jul 2019, 16:02    Post subject: first boot problem  

I have tried out 19.04+12 on a i5 machine.
I tried to boot from fugal install on ssd with efi/grub2 and from usb frugal install with grub4dos.

On both I had the same problem:
If there is not yet a pupsave, the boot stops just before X.
So I have to boot nox on the first boot, then go to X in a second step, then make a pupsave on first shutdown.
After that, everything goes well, also with multiple pupsaves.

Hi foxpup

Not sure what to suggest............

Oh, I will boot 19.04+12 on this laptop with Intel and report.

Booted without the pupsave, got to a GUI desktop OK.

Thanks,

Hello peebee.

I have intel card and nvidia graphic card on this machine. It is Optimus machine, but Puppy just uses the intel integrated gc.

I don't know what the reason for this can be, but thought I should just mention it.
There has been changes on the init in woof, so maybe I should try an earlier version with significantly different init. Can you suggest such version?

I'm running a Grub4Dos frugal install to SSD of 19.04 +12 on the second gen i5 hardware here:
Code:
System:    Host: puppypc25146 Kernel: 5.2.1-lxpup64 x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: JWM 2.3.7 Distro: UPupDD 19.04

           Display Server: X.Org 1.20.4 drivers: modesetting (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) Resolution: 1366x768@60.00hz
           OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Sandybridge Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2 version: 3.3 Mesa 19.0.2
Network:   Card: Qualcomm Atheros AR9287 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) driver: ath9k
Drives:    HDD Total Size: NA (-)
Info:      Processes: 147 Uptime: 0 min Memory: 212.1/5794.3MB Client: Shell (bash) inxi: 2.3.40

I hid my savefile and did a boot both with the stock kernel and with the 64b 5.2.1 kernel that I have been running (also in the current LxPupSc and LxPupSc64). Both instances booted normally to X. My Grub4Dos menu entry for upupdd is:
Code:
title DingoPup 19.04 +12 with 5.2.1 64b kernel 
  uuid 2988-C05D
  kernel /DingoPup/vmlinuz pmedia=ataflash pdev1=sda1 psubdir=DingoPup pfix=copy,fsck ipv6.disable=1
  initrd /microcode/microcode-update-20190514a.cpio /DingoPup/initrd.gz


Unhid my pupsave and rebooted to post cause I'm lazy. I've been running 19.04 +12 as my daily since it posted. Mundane use but no issues here.

Could it be the presence of two video cards?

Just to note, I don't have the adrv in that boot folder as I don't use it and forgot to put it in for the test. Shouldn't think that would be the issue but...

PostPosted: Tue 30 Jul 2019, 16:41    Post subject: check savefile  

Just curious...

Why is the 'savefile check' function missing in startup selection menu in the last few updates of dd-pup? and... what actually does it do say, a savefile has something attached or added that shouldn't be there... I don't ever recall anyone in the past explaining its function and worth?

Thanks
