PostPosted: Mon 31 Oct 2011, 05:25    Post subject: Partview (Free Space in Drives) update  

Partview (Free Space in Drives) shows a "Please wait ..." splash window during the processing of the All Drives option.

However, for Slacko 5.3 and Racy-51110 the splash window does not dissappear when the calculation is finished.

The problem is illustrated by the following script, which intended to start yaf-splash, and to kill its process after 3 seconds.
Code:
yaf-splash -font "8x16" -outline 0 -margin 4 -bg orange -placement center -text "Please wait, processing..." &
XPID=$!
echo "XPID=$XPID"
`sleep 3`
`kill $XPID`
PIDOF=`pidof yaf-splash`
echo "PIDOF=$PIDOF"

For Slacko 5.3 and Racy-51110 the output of the script is.

Code:
XPID=28255
./p11: line 8: 28255 Terminated              yaf-splash -font "8x16" -outline 0 -margin 4 -bg orange -placement center -text "Please wait, processing..."
PIDOF=28296


Thus, yaf-splash is still running with PID = 28296.

The yaf-splash option -font "8x16" seems to be the culprit.

I enclose updated versions of partview, where the -font option is removed from yaf-splash. The version Partview-2.2-Slacko.pet includes the stuff added by 01micko.

PostPosted: Mon 31 Oct 2011, 11:29    Post subject: FF and TB  

This might be a duplicate question, but I haven't checked the 13 pages before.

Just wondering why Racy and Wary 5.2 don't allow running Firefox and Thunderbird from /mnt/home anymore?
Also, neither FF 7.0.1 (or 8.0) nor TB is available by way of PPM.

I'd appreciate some comments as to the reasons for these surprising restrictions.

probably only need libdbus and libdbus-glib. These two pets should suffice:

To run generic Firefox you would need to install dbus and dbus-glib from the package manager. Racy certainly does allow running browser from mnt/home, doing so now.

Both can be installed via the package manager Smile

YES

that was it.

dbus pets from above installed, Firefox runs.

However, all dbus links in PPM are dead!

Thanks for the help!

I have an old version of FF in /mnt/home that I could always run from another Puppy just by installing the dbus stuff. But in the latest Wary/Racy it would fail and show a Mozilla error report box.

So I got the latest FF tarball, installed the dbus PETs mentioned above by DaveS and it now runs fine.

FWIW, installing dbus/dbus-glib will also activate the Dropbox tray icon if you use Dropbox.......

PostPosted: Tue 01 Nov 2011, 00:48    Post subject: No Sound  

Video works well, mplayer/gmplayer works full screen. However, there is no audio even after I try running the ALSA sound wizard. It says it doesn't detect any supported PnP or PCI cards.

Dell Latitude D830.
Are there any suggestions to resolve this? Audio works out of the box with the Lupu Puppies like 5.28. Shouldn't it be the same get audio to work here?

I have a problem with 'glxgears' in Racy, see my blog report:

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02574

Tests of glxgears on other video hardware greatly appreciated!

Make sure all apps etc. closed before testing, in case it hangs. I had to hold down the power-off button on my laptop for 4 seconds.


Dug an old box with Intel graphics off the shelf.....no problem with glxgears.

SiS video grief persists. So what changed? Who doesn't like SiS? ATI & nV require bloated drivers to produce the goods whereas SiS in other distros does not.

Later:
Some progress. With some, but not all, HW combos, using initial default 1900x??? and an electron microscope to view, then CTRL-ALT-BKspce, XOrgwizard, select native res. (1440x900 in this case) from a 'regular' Probe, ignore predictions about what might/might not work and set 1024x768@24bit gives the desired result. This result cannot be obtained by jiggling the Quickset utility. All this Mickey Mouse shouldn't be necessary because, evidently, all the correct information lies somewhere within the installed kernel/code/drivers.

ALSA no longer detecting legacy ISA sound cards, even though it runs through the process and lists the drivers.
SM crashes after ~5mins on older AGP cards, eg RIVA TNT2. Might not be able to handle more than 5 open tabs/one window? No such problems with Opera. Why isn't Opera in the PPM list?!

PCLinux- Phoenix Edition has an utility Systeminfo v0.6.3 which gives a textual list of options. The first of these reads some basic BIOS info (dmidecode). It's very difficult for regular folk to remember all the arcane Unix commands that a simple list like this is perfect. This is so valuable in testing that it's worth booting this distro just for that. Any chance of adding this to Racy or Wary? Probably only a kb or so in code?
Lots of other goodies along with my favourite desktop - Xfce - in that distro.
