lag0a,

Squashfs.ko is contained in the initrd.gz, it's copied to save file at first boot along with all of the other initrd modules. It's OK to delete it, it's always loaded in the initrd.gz anyway.

I downloaded and installed the Audacity 1.3.13b pet from the official repo but received an error message regarding missing libwx_gtktu_richtext-2.8.so.0.

I'm sure to find it floating somewhere around the traps, but thought i'd let you know.

You need to install the wxwidgets pet. If you use the Puppy Package Manager it should let you know about other needed packages.

Done and dusted now, thanks Kirk....all good.

I didn't use the PPM, i was browsing the pets on your repo and just grabbed it while i was there.

Pardon my ignorance if this is a doofus question, but....what would i have to do to install more filters in Gimp? Would most filter scripts work in 64-bit as well as 32-bit?

PostPosted: Sun 23 Oct 2011, 00:20    Post_subject: Java crashes: Fatdog 520 and Fatdog 521
Sub_title: Java applications almost work, but crash spontaneously
 

I've been using Puppy 421 for years. But my new laptop (Panasonic CF-C1) is too new for it... So I've been trying the newer Puppy versions and derivatives. Fatdog runs the best; it's the only puppy I've found that correctly identifies the networking and display hardware. Everything seems great except for one big problem: Java applications all crash with the same type of segfault:

Code:
#
# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
#
#  SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007fba0c220680, pid=15851, tid=140436762040080
#
# JRE version: 6.0_27-b07
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (20.2-b06 mixed mode linux-amd64 compressed oops)
# Problematic frame:
# C  [ld-linux-x86-64.so.2+0x12680]  _dl_make_stack_executable+0x2410
#


The same thing happens with freemind, moneydance, and QtCreator. The crash always seems to be caused by _dl_make_stack_executable in ld-linux-x86-64.so.2. I've had the same trouble when I use the JRE sfs file from the Fatdog download page, or a fresh installation of JDK from Oracle's download site.

Has anyone else had this trouble? I have yet to find any java app that works OK.

Thanks in advance.

Kirk and Jamesbond

I just assembled this desktop PC today and Fatdog64-521 is the first OS ever installed (frugal). This GPU has been giving some Ubuntu 11.04 users the fits and I expected major trouble getting any Puppy to work with it.
I am deliriously happy to report that all 4 cores were recognized, sound, and the integrated graphics were no problem at all thanks to your ati-catalyst-11.8-3.0.3.pet. This thing runs like lightning.

I don't have the problem. I used to use Java6 Update 18 (that's the old SFS), recently I updated the Java SFS to Update25, both works fine here. All the java apps I use - freeplane (fork of freemind), jarnal, eclipse, and a few others - work all right - I never have that kind of crash Question

It's very encouraging to hear success stories like this Very Happy

Installed 521 on my HTPC. It's great, I can tell a lot of thought was put into every aspect of this distro; it's really quite the achievement.

Love the "Puppy-style" notifications!

Probably, when we update gtk we'll put that in. There's another gtk configure option that needs to be changed too. Maybe another release on this base will be done with a updated gtk.

You can compile lm-sensors and get that information, or probably just figure out which kernel module load, the lm-sensors setup will figure that out for you.

I started really using Fatdog tonight and have only found a very few bugs/glitches, mostly cosmetic.

Universal installer says ext3 is ext4 but still creates a proper ext3 save file.
Drive icons - right click unmount all does not work

aplay - no sound
Pmusic - no sound.
Xine works perfectly so far.

OpenBox right click menu:
Geany from menu opens a document named %F
Two Gimp entries under Graphic
Clicking either one gives GIMP Message Opening ‘/root/%U failed...
The panel menu & desktop icon open Gimp OK.

lxpanel menu is missing 5 icons.
Document->PeasyPDF Help, but no PeasyPDF menu (both OpenBox and lxpanel menus)

I am getting some weird effects when dragging a window across the screen with OpenBox, but not JWM. As the window moves across the screen it leaves a trail of two or three windows that are redrawing from top to bottom very slowly, but doesn't happen all of the time. Confused Strange.

Thanks Bill, forgot about your CPUtemp pet. I uploaded it to the repo.

Sounds like 2D video hardware acceleration is not working. This usually happens when the Xorg server chooses the vesa driver. It picks the vesa driver because it doesn't have any other matching driver. If you've got Nvidia or ATI try the proprietary pet packages in the repo.

Just FYI, the OpenBox menu just threw a '/root/%F: No such file or directory error' before Gnumeric opens. Again no error from the lxpanel menu or desktop icon.

The ati catalyst drivers (pet) are already installed. Having multiple windows open seems to bring it on, and for some reason Abiword seems to be the most affected.

This is a new AMD FM1 socket with sound and graphics built into the processor and has been problematic on other Linux distros, so I don't really think it is a problem with Fatdog itself. In fact, Fatdog is the only Puppy I have tried that can provide any sound with it. The recent kernel patches leading up to 3.1 have a lot of AMD ATI code in them so maybe a 3.1 kernel and ATI driver update will take care of it. As it is, it's no big deal so far.

All considered, Fatdog64 is an excellent Linux for this brand new hardware. A little menu polish is all it needs, and that says a lot!

Thanks for Fatdog. You guys deserve a lot of credit.
