Maybe a symlink to /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg is needed in usr/lib
I have no room on my hard drive to try it myself, sorry.

Thanks for the idea tubby but it didn't work Smile
But then I figured why not revert back to the way 2.15ce was before dougal changed things, i moved about 5 scripts, change back xorgwizard and gave it a shot. It work!!!!!!!!!!!! that error is now gone, Smile
now to remember what I did, lol
I'll get it Smile
but that is cool, I just hope we won't be missing any added modules/screen sizes by reverting to 2.15ce specs. I'm not usingany modules just the xorg scripts.

... And "init" is still the parent of all processes...
(Still cant frugal install it...will try full eventually)
Did I miss the answer for that one somewhere?? ...
A few weeks ago I got very frustrated, being told over and over again, that "init is still the ..." when trying to make 214X3 work frugally. I couldn't do it my usual way, just copy the files to where I wanted them, and make the appropriate? changes in GRUB's menu.lst Sad . Very frustrating, I even resorted to burning the iso to a CD, and thereafter trying the pup-installer, you'll probably guess what I was told - "init is the ....." Smile Evil or Very Mad .
Then I tried something I saw way further up this thread:
Code:
title Puppy 214X4 on hda6/puppy_214X4
rootnoverify (hd0,5)
kernel /puppy_214X4/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 PMEDIA=idehd
initrd /puppy_214X4/initrd.gz
and having the root=/dev/ram0 PMEDIA=idehd instead of what I thought from my experience with pup-series 3, 4 and 5, as well as what was suggested by the pup-installer (root=/dev/hda6, in my case), fixed my problem with "init is the, init is the init is the .............. Evil or Very Mad ".
This "semi-solution" Wink Smile meant that I could have vmlinuz and initrd.gz in a subdirectory, while having pup_214R.sfs and pup_save-?.2fs in the root of the partition. Shocked
Later on, I decided to wade through this thread backwards, looking for answers, tough work, but it paid off; I found this post and now I can have all the puppy-files for a certain pup214X? in a subdirectory of my choice Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy . Thanx, vg1 Smile Cool .
Present menu.lst that allows this is, in my case:
Code:
title Puppy 214X4 on hda6/puppy_214X4
rootnoverify (hd0,5)
kernel /puppy_214X4/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 PMEDIA=idehd PDEV1=hda6 PUPMODE=12 DEV1FS=vfat SFSFILE=vfat,hda6,/puppy_214X4/pup_214R.sfs ZDRV=vfat,hda6,/puppy_214X4/zdrv_214R.sfs PUPSAVE=vfat,hda6,/puppy_214X4/pup_save-214X4.2fs
initrd /puppy_214X4/initrd.gz
#
#
title Puppy 214X6 on hda6/puppy_214X6
rootnoverify (hd0,5)
kernel /puppy_214X6/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 PMEDIA=idehd PDEV1=hda6 PUPMODE=12 DEV1FS=vfat SFSFILE=vfat,hda6,/puppy_214X6/pup_214R.sfs ZDRV=vfat,hda6,/puppy_214X6/zdrv_214R.sfs PUPSAVE=vfat,hda6,/puppy_214X6/pup_save-214X6.2fs
initrd /puppy_214X6/initrd.gz


Hope that this long rant helps/

ttuuxxx, ttuuxxx, you're too fast Very Happy Very Happy !
Downloaded X5 last night, gave it a spin for a bit, decided to leave the bug-report writing for today. Smile Turned out to be a very good decision Smile since, when I got home this evening, there was already yet another version Shocked Very Happy . I will give it a thorough run-through tonight and report back. Smile
By the way, "save settings" in Pup-Shots is implemented since last night, I'll upload it later on Smile .

cheers/
MHHP

Huh? X6? I haven't even noticed that! xD ttuuxxx you devil!
OK, now i recall what i didn't like in 2.xx
while playing with beep player and browsing net with ff bmp hick-ups
(maybe this is just me, dunno)
Also: When I close tab in gaim whole gaim crashes? Bug?
terminal output:
Quote:

Gaim has segfaulted and attempted to dump a core file.
This is a bug in the software and has happened through
no fault of your own.

Greetings!

Save Settings-feature implemented, just fool-proofed the case, should the settings-file somehow have gotten accidentally deleted (OK, not baby-sitter proof, but almost Smile ) .

Try it out, shout out loud if it doesn't work! Very Happy

Now, I'll finally take 214X6 for a spin! Smile

PostPosted: Sat 11 Jul 2009, 18:37    Post_subject:  .sfs  

One more question.

I do use the openoffice2.2.0.sfs made by BK for Puppy 2 (&3) a lot.
Is there any way to auto-mount it and get it unioned, so that all the desktop icons, menu items, short-cuts and such works? Question
I know how to mount it, and use it, but my knowledge of the commands involved in unioning FS:s is extremely scarce, to say the least. Is it possible?

Just wondering if there's an easier solution than my "mount openoffice2.2.0-dismount-remove without a trace - script" that I'm using now, have I missed a point somewhere??

Cheers/
P

@MinHundHettePerro: Thanks for explaining the workaround for getting pup_214R to live in a subdirectory.

Perhaps others are able to use it in a subdirectory using a different trick?

Downloading x6 now... Thanks, ttuuxxx.

ttuuxxx,
I was going to scream with joy Smile Shocked it works to just set my keyboard to "se" (had to restart Xserver once more, though Wink ) and I could use jwmconfig to set 3 virtual desktops Smile Smile Smile .

But, then I set my locale to sv_SE (for testing, I don't usually set my locale) and result can be seen in screenie 1; setting the locale back to the dreaded default, en_US Razz , produces screenie 2 (which shows some strange, but seemingly, unimportant error messages).

FWIW/

Is there a trick to it? Smile I'd really like to learn. Myself, I just followed (official?) directions, relayed by vg1 Cool in page 5 of this thread.
raffy, you were around by then (2.14, 2.14R), is there an easier way to do it (a trick Smile )? Please, I'd really want to know Question . (I wouldn't know by heart, I only got into the Puppy-world with 2.16) Wink .

Still Learning/

Very Happy Hello,
Well, the testing continues...Now on X6....
First, thank you to MinHundHettePerro for saving me on blank CD`s.. Very Happy
I realized the subdir was the prob...for me: Let the installer put it in /boot..
Quote:
title = Puppy 214R X6
rootnoverify (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/puppy214R/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 PMEDIA=idehd
initrd /boot/puppy214R/initrd.gz

Did the trick..... Cool Cool Cool
Duh...Now I can edit it to where I want...

I was wrong about Xorg...its locked to 640x480....period....
But Xvesa is working fine..so..no biggie...

Jwm config launches from the menu now....but what happened to changing the jwm theme?? ( Love all the GTK themes tho..)

Also, cant shut down in Xvesa...must switch to (640x480) org and use ctrl-alt-bkspc to save and shutdown..
Xvesa wont even go to a prompt without restarting, but this has nothing to do with 214r but Xvesa and my machine...

So far Id say it runs like a scalded monkey..
Everything else works perfectly so far...
Of course we only get a day or less between releases...LOL
Work-a-holic indeed.... Very Happy
It just goes to show how far the 2.xx series can go after all...
Puppy moves too fast.. LOL.. But then again, so do you.. Shocked
