I am very like the rox filer's behavior in this fatdog.
We can search file by typing the name keyword directly.
Is it possible to make this rox filer in puppy linux?

That's really up to Woof-CE guys.

I look at https://github.com/jun7/rox-filer and try to compile it my self. But it still different with rox filer in fatdog. It also show Running as user 'root' in the top of


Right-click ROX windows, choose "Option", then on then look at the very bottom - there is an option settings to "Hide message running as root".

How to compile it so it is equal to this fatdog?
Thank you.
If you're running Fatdog, load devx and check /usr/src/pkgbuild/source/rox-filer-jun7-2020.01-x86_64-1.tar.gz and read this (scroll to the bottom, read method 5, using pkgbuild).

If you don't run Fatdog then download this and then read this.

So all is good now?

Pretty much! I'm afraid FD becomes too mature for this forum Very Happy

However, I manage to get in trouble with the quick-setup icon that in another machine installation did not want to go away! Shocked
I interupted the process in the middle and finished the setup through the individual apps and the icon is still there (I actually manually delete it after few reboots).
I guess it stays there till it runs fully and successfully but maybe add an explicit remove from desktop or something option if its "canceled"

PostPosted: Tue 21 Jan 2020, 08:28    Post subject: A Rox-filer pinboard option  

The Rox pinboard has a "Single-click to open" option that's checked by
default that can cause problems for users with certain disabilities. They
often double (or multiple) click, resulting in multiple activation of
applications.

I found that unchecking that option works very well to prevent multiple
instances of applications when clicking their desktop icons. In fact, I
haven't yet been able to get multiple instances.

To get at the setting, I right click on the text under any desktop icon,
then select Rox-filer Options, then pinboard. then pinboard behavior.

Looking at the FD800 thread I gathered that Skype does not play well with FatDog. Any chance that you'll take another crack at it with 810?

Later: Tried a slackware version from here and it pretty much works (using a Gtk3 SFS I had made for FD800). No complains about root and audio video are good too. Menus and panel integration may need some work but in general pretty functional (sorry sage)
Later-later: Just installing Gtk3 (and the pulled dependencies) with the FD810 package manager is sufficient for the above skype package.

- that's the good news! They sold out to Redmond several years ago. Why not try some of the others like Ekiga & co. Puppy used to have a selection of IP video phone applications. There was an expert on this Forum back then - will need a lot of patience to SEARCH, though.
Later: I didn't say it doesn't work! The further you get from Redmond the safer you'll be...

Anyway, there's k5.4.7 in the repo, so maybe you could give it a try.
Hello SFR
I think 5.4.3 is as far as AUFS gets so far. I did try the Fatdog 5.4.7, also a 5.4.7 and 5.4.12 that I built, on 810 beta. None of them would boot, and there was no previous-messages from the failed boot. So I guess the layered filesystem was broken.

There is an aufs5.4.3 branch and it doesn't have a + at the end. My 5.4.3 kernel built with that branch boots OK.

Next time I build a kernel I can delete the /etc/modules directory and see what happens.

I have built a 5.4.14 kernel using the current aufs5.4 branch. It boots my Athlon 3000G OK with Fatdog 810 and Bionicpup64

There is a commit in the 5.4.14 changelog that is specific to Raven2.

I also applied the patches that add current and voltage reporting to k10temp. That is working too.

hello jamesbond & kirk
Is there something unusual about the way cpufreq and the ondemand governor are conigured in Fatdog 810?

The ondemand governor is very keen to jump to P0, more like the performance governor. The up_threshold is still the default 95, but it doesn't behave like that. I'm using the same kernel as I use with Bionicpup64 where the ondemand governor behaves normally.

Just FYI: when you right-click a .gpg file, UExtract doesn't show up (ROX recognizes it as generic application/octet-stream), but it's possible to decrypt it from CLI (uextract file.gpg).

Subject description: Accidently posted in the wrong thread
 

From: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=117923

jamesbond,

thank you for taking your time an jumping in.

Here's what I found out so far:

- changing in FD system menu under Fatdog64 local to (at least) German, seems to break the Fatdog64 standard sound device gui. Only bluetooth shows up. Changing back to locals US make every device visuable again.

- choosing the default sound device before changing the locals seems to work.

- No luck with FF ESR releases and sound. Sound is working with FF latest release.

It seems I'm having issues with my setup in general, but I'm not quite sure about this. I'm using a 14 GB USB-stick with two partitions. First partition is formatted as ext4 an holds puppy. This is the boot partition configured with an mbr on the stick and syslinux in /boot. The second partition is formatted as f2fs and also as f2fs luks-encrypted. Puppy is configured to use this partition as save directory. The boot command is

append rootfstype=ramfs savefile=direct:uuid:myuuid:/fd64save:dmcrypt waitdev=5

In the past I had no problems with this configuration. It was running stable I had no issues. With upgrading to FD 810 I changed also the USB-stick. The old one was about 3 years old. Maybe the new one is some kind of lossy. I'll try another one form the same manufactorer and report.

OR do you recommend another setup in general? I.e. second partition formatted with another filesystem? Or/and using another luks file-system?

Thank's for any recommendation.

regards,
stefan

Confirmed, thanks. To fix this, open /usr/bin/fatdog-default-soundcard.sh and modify line 28 from:
Code:
SOUNDCARDS=$(aplay -l | awk '$1~/card/ { print "\"" $0 "\" " "\"" $0 "\"" }')

to:
Code:
SOUNDCARDS=$(LANG=C aplay -l | awk '$1~/card/ { print "\"" $0 "\" " "\"" $0 "\"" }')

EDIT: alternatively download and install fatdog-hotfixes package (see 2nd post for details).

Greetings!

I changed the second partition and luks to ext4. This seems to work a little slower, but acceptable.

What I see is from time to time the

/dev/mapper/dmcrypt0 on /aufs/devsave type ext4 (rw,relatime)
/dev/mapper/dmcrypt0 on /aufs/pup_save type ext4 (rw,relatime)

is changing in

/dev/mapper/dmcrypt0 on /aufs/devsave type ext4 (ro,relatime)
/dev/mapper/dmcrypt0 on /aufs/pup_save type ext4 (ro,relatime)

So something must still be wrong. I took a look in /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE:

# This file exists for compatibility with Puppy apps and scripts.
# Fatdog-only applications don't use this file.
# Only important entries are emulated, the rest are left blank.
PUPMODE=12
PDEV1=sdb2
DEV1FS=crypto_LUKS
PUPSFS=
PUPSAVE=
PMEDIA=atahd
pfix=
ATADRIVES='sda sdb'
SAVE_LAYER=/aufs/pup_save
PUP_LAYER=/aufs/pup_ro
PUP_HOME=/aufs/devsave
ZDRV=
ZDRVINIT=no
PSAVEMARK=
FASTPARTS=

In my understanding this should be PUPMODE=13 as I'm using an USB-stick. PMEDIA therefore should be usbflash, and ATADRIVES='sda' only.

Could someone please advise?

Thanks in advance.

regards,
stefan

Could be a sign of filesystem corruption. You may want to add dofsck to your bootloader line.
Quote:
dofsck
Perform a filesystem check on filesystems that will be used by the savefile and basesfs, before they are used. It will check both the physical partitions as well as the savefile. Only ext2/3/4 and FAT filesystems will be checked.

Just change direct to ram here:
Code:
append rootfstype=ramfs savefile=direct:uuid:myuuid:/fd64save:dmcrypt waitdev=5

comments, help appreciated. How do you PXE boot from Fatdog64

Place holder for more details about booting PXE from a Fatdog64 800 series.
I think I had to download the NETBOOT3.pet
Had to edit a line 100~ in file netboot-fix-jb.sh to correct a line Xdialog wrong number of terms. Fixed with change
Code:
  [  $Choices "" ]


Howto load a .PET package on Fatdog64 ( I opened with archive and hand copied files where they should go.) Is there a proper netboot_server3.pet for Fatdog64 800 series.

Fred
