Maybe Adobe doesn't like AMD anymore.


I can confirm that. My old Acer Aspire 1350 with AMD Athlon does not run the latest flashplayer 11.2.202.228 but is happy with previous version 11.1.102.63.


Guess it's just older AMD. On my newer AMD quad-core box flash 11.2 r202 works without any problems.
I'm curious now whether the new flash will work on old P3 boxes anymore.


Booted into Wary on my old reliable P3 test box and the latest Flashplayer is a total no go.Looks like they've quit supporting older hardware.

Confirmed, I got the same result. However, at least in Wary I didn't have any problems booting from CD without a save-file, even after installing and activating langpack_es. The bug appeared after I created a save-file with the default settings (en_US, UTF-8 turned off, etc.), rebooted, installed langpack and changed system language. I can't tell if the type of drive has something to do, as I use at least three computers so I can't have a save-file on the hard disk of each one, I always use flash drives. I did read the blog post about unionfs, but if there's a file or files in my langpack that may be causing any problems, please send me a private message or report it here, and I will remove the file and replace it with a new one when available.

On another topic, the attached file contains eight more menu entry files that have translations that can only be fixed by replacing the equivalent files in Woof. This time I made sure there weren't any more of them. No need to rush, they can be included for future releases.

vicmz,
I was wrong about needing your langpack to bring on the bug.
I am able to consistently cause it with a pristine Wary, and en_US.

Let's see, booting off USB stick, I create a save-file, reboot, then do the touch thing:

# touch /var/local/pup_event_icon_change_flag

Then reboot, desktop drive icons working.

then do it again:

# touch /var/local/pup_event_icon_change_flag

then restart X, then click drive icon -- bug!

I tracked down the cause:

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02777

I have reported this on the Unionfs mail list.

Anyway, this is a serious bug, so I am changing over to Aufs. Unfortunately, Aufs dropped support for the 2.6.32 kernel 8 months ago, so have to use an older version (2.1) of Aufs. For the 3.0.25 kernel I am going to use for Racy, using latest Aufs3.

This means that there will have to be a RC3.

Thanks for that. I have fixed it in Woof:

rootfs-skeleton/usr/share/doc/nls/alsaconf/alsaconf.pot

I will upload Woof soon.


This has to be manually inserted into alsaconf.pot:

I do not have nouveau or nv, but maybe this 1 line is useful:
Code:
[ `lsmod | grep nouveau` ] || exit # script is useful only if nouveau loaded


if nouveau module is not loaded then exit Smile

Anyway, please play with the apps, let us know if anything crashes and burns.

xgamma-gui is an essential bug fix.

Though I doubt anyone will use it...

I've seen this too on my AMD K6-2 500 machine. Seamonkey was bombing out on certain pages. Tried launching it from the console and when it crashed I got an 'Illegal Instruction' error - this is typical of things which aren't compatible with the CPU. In the case of the K6-2, it lacks the CMOV instruction so pets compiled for i686 and above give that error.

I tried the same pages on a pfix=ram boot and hit cancel when requested to download the Flash Player. Seamonkey would then work without crashing on the pages which previously presented problems. It does look like an incompatible Flash Player is the cause.

Automatic downloading of Flash Player should probably be disabled for the time being. Is there a way to produce a Pet for an i486 version?

Other than the Flash thing, which I should probably have checked much earlier (the K6 is usually in a room without an internet connection), Wary seems to work quite well on the K6-2.

Wary 5.3 on a Pentium II machine. Very good!
The gears were barely moving though! Everything else was quick (faster than Windows 7 on a Core-Duo laptop anyway!)

PostPosted: Sun 15 Apr 2012, 20:42    Post subject: Open Office won't open  

Running Racy 5.3 latest on new Acer Aspire 5349-2635.

Wireless and sound worked out of the box with this computer (unlike Lupu 528, and Wary).

I downloaded openoffice-3.1.1-sfs4.sfs using the Install button and installed it using the bootmanager.

Unfortunately clicking on the program icons brings up the Open Office registration dialog, which never is fulfilled. Adding entries in the fields, and then closing with the Finish button does not open the OO program selected originally. Nothing happens.

Then if you click on a program again, you get the same registration dialog with blank fields again. So there's no way to ever open any of the programs.

vtpup, it has been a long time since I first used that SFS but I did not see the problem you report. You can just select the do not register option. Possibly you get the problem trying to register because the registration server does not exist anymore at the coded URL.

Thanks for answering Terryphi, but nope I hadn't wanted to register the program in the first place, and had made "I do not want to register", "do not check for updates" and hit Finish.

Also tried both adding my name and not adding my name (presumably for initial doc properties when OO runs). No go on either of these.

Also tried just hitting Cancel at the start of the wizard. Same behavior. Simply closes program.

Running from console "swriter" causes the same behavior. Program closes after the dialog with no error messages in terminal.

While I'm interested in a workaround, I'm mainly reporting here as a possible bug.

On my keyboard (computer type listed in sig below), the screen dimming keys work, but are reversed -- the brighter key makes the screen dimmer, and vice versa.

Yes, you are right, 3.1.1 is a no go.

There is an other one you can try. It's Open Office version 3.2.

This one works fine with Racy and Wary. You can find it on 'ibiblio' or one of the others.

f.e.: http://ftp.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/sfs_modules-5/
c8d9d74f75a1adb968643c5c6d84224b openoffice-3.2-dpup-sfs4.sfs (md5)

After downloading, installing and reboot you'll get the same registration window again:

- click on "I don't want.."
- on the next one "JRE Required.." just click for o.k.

After restarting Open Office you will get a final window
- "No, I do not want to .."

From there on Open Office will be all yours. - No more funny pop ups.

Cheers, Feodor
