* Voyager SFS: Includes LiquidWeather++ for KDE3 and additional KDE3 & 4 help files and wallpapers

***Bugs and quirks***
Installing Pwidgets-2.2.3 or earlier causes a crash and prevents X from starting. Use the latest version of Pwidgets instead: Pwidgets page (works in JWM and IceWM)

Kopete in KDE doesn't load Live Messenger (MSN) plugin. Recommend to install Pidgin SFS here or in Gslapt Package Manager.

Multi-user is experimental, not perfect. Can login as root (default) or as user 'spot'. User profiles in '/home'. Add User, Change Passwd, Autologin tools in System Menu. Some apps prompt to log in as root.

By design, LHP's boot option 'pfix=fsck' may check all found Linux partitions, then the pupsave. (Using 'psubdir=<pupsave dir>' on the kernel line in GRUB will check only that partition, then the pupsave.) This behavior differs from official Puppy, which only checks the host partition and the pupsave.

If KDE 4.3.3's taskbar is set to autohide, it stays hidden. Best to use one of the other settings--always show or windows can cover.

In KDE the remote desktop client and desktop sharing have not been tested. They did not work in prior releases.

ATI Catalyst 9.9 works fine but Catalyst 9.3 is broken--hard freeze upon launching any openGL/3D apps, including catalyst control center, so it is not included in Mariner SFS although there is a pet available here.

tazok,

You've done another outstanding job and as usual, I'm sticking with the KDE4 Kickstart desktop. Everything appears to be very stable, however, there is a problem locating the Nvideo driver 180.44 that 442 used for my Geforce 8400 GS video card. Isn't that driver supposed to be in the Mariner sfs?
This is the console output:

I continue to be amazed at all of the extras that you've included, only had to add Pidgin and you made that easy with Gslapt.

Thanks again,
Jim

Hi Jim,
Thank you for your feedback. Yes Mariner SFS includes the driver 'nVidia latest' that should work with your adapter. I built it from NVIDIA-185.18.36-k2.6.30.5-1.pet by forum member gray at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=341976. I don't have a recent nVidia box to test on, so it's possible I didn't build it correctly.

First try 'nVidia latest' in xorgwizard. If you haven't already also try 'nVidia 173'.

You might try exiting X to CL and type 'nvidia-xconfig --help'. If the driver doesn't detect your card, and you haven't already I would d/l gray's pet above and install it in Puppy4.3 to test it. If it works, try installing it in Lighthouse with a new pup_save ('puppy pfix=ram' at boot menu).

If it doesn't work and you have the development add-ons loaded (devx and linux-2.6.30.5) you could try the nVidia installer from their website http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_ia32_185.18.36.html

Hope that helps,
TazOC

Hiya tazoc, nice work. Have a small problem with connecting via wireless, get the error as per attached. I am using a Linksys Usb adapter that uses the RT73usb driver. Am working on fixing it myself but any help appreciated.

cheers

Hello Tazoc,
I also had some difficulty with the Nvidia driver. Installed the "latest" from the installation menu and got a disjointed screen, lines at the top and the left side displaced to the right.
Did a second install, this time just going with the normal xorg entry, then installed "NVIDIA-185.18.36-k2.630.5-1.pet" and that worked just fine.

Got a joystick problem with this version of lighthouse though.
Lighthouse 4.4.2 recognised my Saitek X52 joystick ok after doing a modprobe joydev. In pup-430 some old usb joysticks would be recognised but not the X52. Unfortunately looks like the problem has been imported into Lighthouse 4.4.3. Working at it but not having much luck.

Edit

Forget this, just googled for X52 + kernel 2.6.30, turns out there's a bug in 2.6.30 which prevents recognition of the X52.

joydev: blacklist digitizers avoids recognition of Saitek X52
This bug is related to a bad commit to joydev which now blacklists x52
joysticks.(d07a9cba6be5c0e947afc1014b5a62182a86f1f1)

Guess I'll have to wait on next kernel Smile

tazok,

Your link above to the Nvideo drivers solved my problem.
You outdo yourself with each upgrade.

Thank you,
Jim

PostPosted: Mon 12 Oct 2009, 14:11    Post subject: Compiz-Fusion SFS updated for LHP 443  

Compiz-Fusion SFS: Updated to 0.8.2b--fixes missing shadows on two LHP Emerald themes by reducing the shadow radius.

Today I noticed I'm able to layer more than 8 squash files; not sure what changed but the limit for extra SFS in Lighthouse Pup should be 40.

@jasmac, I don't have any ideas, other than searching the forum and testing in Puppy 4.3 (same kernel as LHP 443)

@gersen, Thanks for the feedback and update about the kernel.

@Jim1911, Glad its working, I might just remove the modified nVidia drivers from Mariner and point to the downloads.
-TazOC

Hi TazOC,
I'm liking this version quite a lot.

I copied three firmware files for my wireless card from /lib/firmware in 442 to same location in 443:
ipw2200-bss.fw
ipw2200-ibss.fw
ipw2200-sniffer.fw
...and my wireless now works.

I find that this versions seems to be faster.
Also the new C-F seems to work in KDE3 with my Intel chipset, and wbar now operational in KDE3!

Still testing ... will keep you posted. B.

Please keep the nVideo drivers in Mariner, the problem was probably due to the switch in kernels, and you need to swap out the old kernel drivers for the match to the kernel used.
Thanks,
Jim

Hi tazoc, I have tried puppy 4.3 and network works in that. I have used both lighthouse base and mariner with the same results. I can't seem to find a definitive answer on what the fix maybe. All answers always ask if the drivers are loaded in the correct place. I am still trying, I think I will install both 4.3 and lighthouse side by side with a full install and see if there are any differences within the directories.

Cheers

Jason

Hi TazOC,

Wonderful puplet.

Tested with Base iso:

HD install in ext4 is failing, though with ext2 it works. rt73usb wireless card with wpa not working. Needed to use ndiswrapper. Nvidia drivers pet (185.18.36) don't install and had to use the nvidia installer ( using devx and kernel sfs). With mariners.sfs latest nvidia drivers install nicely with good fps.

Will test further and update.

using a amd64 machine.

Jasmac,
See this post about rt73usb
http://www.puppylinux.com/blog/?viewDetailed=00209 "rt2500usb needs to be blacklisted to allow only rt73usb to load."

If that doesn't apply maybe Garcot's ndiswrapper approach (previous post) would help? I don't know how to do that.

Garcot,
Thank you for the feedback. Booting LHP from ext4 is not here yet, a work-in-progress; when Puppy 4.3.x bugs have been squashed and I feel it's ready, I'll re-build an LHP Base ISO from Puppy.

Barburo,
Maybe I should also swap the ipw2200 firmware for the next release? I opened the archives to compare and the only difference I could find was the ownership; 442 was root:root and 443 (and Puppy 4.30) is ftp:users.

Jim1911, I double checked, the nVidia modules are for the new kernel. Something else, maybe GL libs or xorgwizard isn't right. I wish I had a recent nVidia box to test on.

Hi tazok,

I'll be happy to create a fresh frugal installation and test out your ideas for correctng the nvideo problem. Sorry can't help with the code.

Thanks,
Jim
