Saluki 0.2.2 running off a USB key.

Hi all, Saluki noob here. Quick question: I have changed /etc/eventmanager RAMSAVEINTERVAL to 0 (without + or -) but it still autosaves every 30 minutes. (Running in PUPMODE 13 as usual.) Am I missing a different location to disable auto-saves?

TIA
m


The configuration is in Control panel> System> Pupsaveconfig personal storage setup.

That GUI changed the RAMSAVEINTERVAL in /etc/eventmanager from 0 to -0. However, it still autosaves regularly, so something's not right. I notice that pup_event_frontend_d doesn't read /etc/eventmanager, so I'm going to experiment with hard-coding RAMSAVEINTERVAL in it so see what happens.

prezidesktop supplemental

Duh. Such 30 day limit crippleware is indeed simple to control: before you start the app, re-set the time and date of the computer (terminal: set-time-for-puppy) on some day before the registration of the app and the limit is lifted. So no illegal software required. Or is it yet against the law to have a mis-synced clock?

Still, prezi is a beautiful piece of spoftware. And it is good that you can use it online for free. I hope they come up with a more affordable option for using it offline than $159 each year!

geoffry thanks - back to saluki

Yup - that worked. So I put . /etc/eventmanager in pup_event_frontend_d and that also worked. Job done I think.

Are you saying that the pupsaveconfig method of setting savetime to zero does not prevent changes to the previous savefile? I'm counting on that function to save me from screwing up my savefile when I load some new programme wrongly....

PostPosted: Mon 04 Jun 2012, 10:46    Post subject: No Save  

I've been running this frugal "manual save only" mode (13) in Saluki (and other Puppies) using USB and SD flash drives for a long time with very little problem. Just by setting the save interval to "0" with no "+or-". You can check out /etc/rc.d/rc.shutdown around line # 988 to see if it is set to "0" there. You can also change the time delay before "no save" auto shutdown in this section. That's about the extent of my knowledge.

Most of the time I run from a full size SD card (set to "lock" for read only... NO WRITES ... not even when the OS says a save has been completed) on my main system. This requires some planning ahead as once the system starts you can not "lock" or "unlock" the SD. I often run from a SD plugged into a USB converter.

The main problems I have had with this arrange have related to the SD "lock" switch. SD card bodies, computer insertion slots, and USB converter slots become loose over time and may not recognize the "lock" condition if the card is removed and inserted many times. When this condition occurs the OS will hang and not complete bootup (you can "wiggle" the card a bit ...reboot... and get it to work most of the time) ... so even then there are no writes without my consent. A new SD to USB converter (about $10 US) or a new SD card and it's up and running reliably . KJ

PostPosted: Mon 04 Jun 2012, 15:58    Post subject: Broadcom wifi support  

rerwin has been refining his initialisation logic so as to better support Broadcom wifi devices in their many guises and 3 different driver types.

I have updated my compilation of the Broadcom proprietary wl driver and have now packaged it as an All-In-One driver that supports many different kernels. It is attached to this post

To do this and remain of reasonable size it uses xdelta3 to generate the kernel specific driver at installation time.

Saluki is the only 'mainstream' woof based puppy that doesn't have xdelta3 built-in for some reason.

If Saluki included xdelta3 then I would recommend that the version in the Saluki repository should be updated.

Cheers
peebee

Just a quick note to let you guys know I'm not dead. I'm installing SANs at Pearl Harbor this week and staying in Waikiki. I'm not having a lot of time to work on Saluki, but as of right now, I have next week off. I hope to catch up then.

Have a stiff drink for everyone. Hey, I'm tying out Tinycore now, it alright. Just didn't want you to think we're ignoring you...

Frankly, I've been a Myers (dark) fan since (awhile anyway). Seems like people use Puppy when the drumbeats of Ubuntu are quieted (gooey GUI drum sticks). Crying or Very sad

Hi Jemimah I hope you take the Helicopter trip over the Volcanoes while you're there. And I hope you are allowed time to get around the islands to see its structures and its peoples as there is a lot of natural beauty abound. Its magnificently beautiful. Its a great trip and a great opportunity to behold.

ON SANs
Your experience can be useful to all here in Puppyland. Here's one way of looking at how it can be. From 10000 feet, A SANs is nothing more than a adapter which talks to a HDD adapter in much the same way an Ethernet card talks to an Ethernet device. The biggest difference is that in a SAN, ONLY SAN DEVICES are expected to exist on the SAN LAN, while in LAN it accommodates all types of devices.

In your opinion, What if
  • Anyone of us installed a 2nd LAN adapter and ONLY PUT A NAS device on that adapter wouldn't we in fact have created a SAN?
  • And what would be its benefits or drawbacks if using Saluki?
Thanks in advance

PostPosted: Wed 06 Jun 2012, 05:34    Post subject: saluki 22 bugs  

I am under the impression that specto and vlc both install incomplete. I have not been able to run those in any saluki so far. vlc installs but can not play avi or mp4 video. specto does not work at all.

and for the graphic part: my apologies for posting this in the wrong thread (please point me at the correct one) but I would like to extend GIMP with the resynthesizer plugin in order to remove elements from photos.

finding it was easy
http://www.logarithmic.net/pfh/resynthesizer
http://registry.gimp.org/files/resynthesizer.tar.gz

but now I don't know what to do with it. Copy to the gimp plugins directory in root? I have a GIMP book, a bunch of forums targeted at ubuntu and windows users, but none are very informative so far

so it can be that this post is a request for a GIMP plugin installer pet...

can anyone help me?
