I've been out of town and had some other things going on, so I haven't been around for a month or so. I do have some plans:

1) Quit using LZMA compression for the main SFS, might still use it for the devx file. LZMA slows things down too much and 64bit machines should have enough RAM.

2) Incorporate Pizzasgood's multi-user stuff. I think I'll just wait and steal it from Woof once Barry gets it in there.

3) Might include QT4. The gui that comes with wpa-supplicant looks good. Maybe I kind find some other good/small QT4 apps.

4) Upgrade firefox to the latest or maybe replace it with Opera if I have QT4. Though I probably should stick with Firefox since it's so popular.

5) Upgrade Flash

6) Get the Latest Kernel

7) Improve the handbrake GUI, Id like it to choose the main title instead of the longest one, don't know if lsdvd can determine that. I think there is a QT GUI for handbrake, but it's big.

8.) Might try Xorg 7.5, but that would be a lot of work. If I did that it might be better to do another T2 build.

Then again, setting on my butt and watching football is pretty appealing too. Laughing

Welcome back, your plans look good. Even watching football, although I'm partial to other SEC teams, I still pull for FL most of the time and if they pull off the SEC championship they certainly deserve to be no 1.

Hello Kirk,

Great Work!

Please, could you post the DotConfig used to compile the Kernel with 64Bit option and also the patches applied.

How did you generated the pet used by Woof?

Thanks in advance,

The devx file contains the patched kernel source with .config.

I used the scripts from from Woof, (/etc/rc.d etc. ) but I didn't use the woof build system for the 64bit version. Woof uses many 32 bit pet packages and it doesn't know how to handle /lib64. So this was put together by hand.

P.S. If/when I get around to the next update, I'll be going back to zlib compression. The lzma just slows things down too much and 64bit systems should have plenty of RAM. If you want to re-squash your sfs file without lzma compression, give mksquashfs the -nolzma option.

Kirk, I have upgraded my mobo and when booting from CD, fatdog gets the DSOD after choosing a xorg resolution. I have tried an older puppy (.sfs3) to open up fd200.sfs but it gives a error message about some sort of block mode. I was going to unpet the ATI .pet and copy the .pet into fd200.sfs and burn a new cd. How can I open up fd200.sfs. Aung

Aung,

The problem is probably due to Xorg 7.3 not recognizing your video chip set. I think the Xorg wizard will let you edit the xorg.conf file.

To open-up the sfs file you'll need a puppy that supports lzma compression.

Hey Kirk, Fatdog 64 is back online.
In all I was able to take ATI-radeon from Bongo drums X11/xorg/drivers and splice them into Kirks fatdog and now I have fatdog64 running on my newish (its not the latest ATI chipset) mobo.

Now, how do I get pmount to work, and, playing video, or trying to, in Kino kills Gxine, needs a reboot to bring back gxine. Aung

# ./pmount
./pmount: line 35: yaf-splash: command not found
./pmount: line 290: kill: (5135) - No such process

Subject description: 64 bit fd
 

rebuilt fd 200 compiled the 2.6.30.5 kernel added squashfs-4 to it. the pmount problem is missing some links to the theme. icons. not sure working on it . right now I am trouble shooting the init for the boot cd.
also rebuilding the scripts for the remaster. I am using t-2 lib and some of slackware 64 current source.
Any way I rarely post it hade been so long I had to create an new acount.
But the bike season is slow right now so I just wanted play on my 64 bit system. the rebuild is extremely fast.
took 9 minutes to compile the kernel.

one gear at a time

upgrade it to 4.3.1 standards.

Aung,

Yep yaf-splash is missing. It's probably because I couldn't find the source or get it to compile.


Also if your having problems with your second hard drive being recognized, the problem is that /dev/sdb through /dev/sdb2 is missing. Somehow must have missed that.

PostPosted: Fri 29 Jan 2010, 23:08    Post subject: lxpanel request?  

I've finally tried my hand on FD64.

Amazing stuff, my 4G machine's available memory increases from 2.8G on 32-bit OS, to 3.8G on FD64 !!!

Through the process, I met the same problem as archwndas, but fortunately I can solve it. No kernel replacement etc is required, just the devx.

1. Got devx working (you need at least 512MB save file for this)
2. go to /usr/src, then make menuconfig
3. in the drivers --> networking --> wireless --> iwlwifi, in the section for iwlagn, Intel 5000 and 4965 are currently unchecked. Check them, and check all options (except the debugging options)
4. quit and save changes.
5. do a "make modules".
6. Get the new iwlwifi modules (./drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi) and copy them over the to the correct place, overwriting the existing modules (/lib/modules/2.6.28.10/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/iwlwifi).
7. depmod -a
8. get iwlwifi-5000-1.ucode (many places have this - I got mine from intelwireless.org). Don't use the iwlwifi-5000-2.ucode, use the -1 version as the -2 version is not compatible with driver in 2.6.28.10 kernel.
9. modprobe iwlagn - voila! You've got wifi !!

(I tested these steps in both FD 112 and FD2-64).

Thank you kirk for giving us this!

I only have a simple request, kirk, if you're not too busy, could you please compile 64-bit version of lxpanel? Thank you !

EDIT: I mean openbox+lxpanel Smile thanks.

cheers!

Nevermind, I got both of them compiled (I found your patched source 0.3.8.1 of lxpanel and that seems to be the easiest one to compile --- and most stable). Some of the newer versions segfault upon starting.

Anyway, I found the source of yaf-splash --- so here it is, and the compiled version.

cheers!

Thanks james bond and kirk.
Now I know what a yaf-splash is. The font in the orange box is tiny.
It sort of wants to work! The orange box is gone in a splash!
# pmount
yaf-splash: couldn't load font "8x16"
ln: creating symbolic link `/tmp/gtkdialog_pmount': File exists
/usr/sbin/pmount: line 295: 18429 Terminated
yaf-splash -font "8x16" -outline 0 -margin 4
-bg orange -text "Puppy Drive Mounter

Please wait, probing hardware..."
#
All the drive icons on the desktop work OK. Aung

Aung, here's how to fix it: create a symlink from /usr/bin/gtkdialog3 to /usr/sbin/gtkdialog3. In console, do:
Code:

ln -s /usr/bin/gtkdialog3 /usr/sbin/gtkdialog3

pmount should work after that.

Hey James Bond!! You should be on the silver screen, that worked. Now can you sort this one, When I try to play a DV (raw DV) clip in Kino, the Edit window crashes, Black SOD, and then Xine goes out in synpathy and wont play any video. I have to reboot to play anything in Xine. And after this I have a gkrellm (thermal.ko) to sort. Aung
