My usb wireless mouse receiver/transmitter is not recognized upon boot. It has to be removed and replaced and then is recognized. This has happened several times with pemasu's distributions with different kernels. I have no idea as to how the problem was solved.
Cheers, Very Happy

Oh...this has been solved already. I have posted about the fix couple of times. Barry Kauler included the needed change to his latest precise kernel. I have it in new kernels.

CONFIG_HID_LOGITECH_DJ=m -----> =y

Easily fixed...just needs kernel recompile.... Very Happy

bigpup and others.

xwd was an oversight, added to list.

Pupcontrol may be on the chopping block. I do like the FatDog control panel. We'll see.

Mtpaintsnapshot script is missing, fixed for next. May update mtpaint.

As for gparted, I'm leaving it until Slackware goes next version, as I am a lot of apps, maybe abiword will get recompiled. The reason is that 13.37 libs are getting older. I did the full update to my woof tree to catch any Slackware security fixes, there were in fact a few updated libs.

I may have to recompile the kernel with the wait-usb patch for your wireless desktop issue. IIRC you had this problem when I was 'kernel hopping' in one of the early betas for 533 with k3.2.2. Funny, k3.1.10 series doesn't have the patch, the kernel devs do some weird stuff sometimes. Also, doesn't your laptop need that iwlwifi module I missed?

Thanks for keeping up with broadcom stuff. I will be recompiling the kernel soon, keep you posted.

Thanks everyone.

PS: CONFIG_HID_LOGITECH_DJ=m -----> =y , got it, thanks pemasu

I think that's the one for the laptop. I'll wait to try laptop after your next release.

Re using FatDog control panel, if you go that way, please make it single click and also include drive icon management.

Cheers,
Jim

Subject description: vlc-2.0.1
 

I started with a fresh savefile, installed the devx,kernel source, and
proprietary nvidia driver.
I downloaded qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.3-i686.pet and
qt-everywhere-opensource-src_DEV-4.7.3-i686.pet from the slacko pet
packages on Ibibio (via nluug) and installed them.
Then installed pemasu's ivtv-firmware-1.4.0-8.6.pet +
vlc-2.0.1-i686.pet that I compiled tonight in slacko 533.

Vlc works again, pvr support too.

Yippee Smile

FatDog control panel is excellent. Cool
Would it be a good idea to add your download Libroffice Script into Slickpet?

Thanks Mick. Smile
No obvious worries.
This morning I was in Slacko 5.3.3 and somehow I was getting no code being displayed in wiki or geany just showing tiny boxes for text or on websites were code was meant to be displayed - Nada, rein, nothing!

Weird. Some sort of font thing.

I installed Chromium and was OK. I think it may have been something to do with an installation of many fonts pet.

Anyway back to 5.3.3.1
I notice some new Jwm styles, very nice, I would recommend some more dark on light, such as gradient bluish as these are the easiest to see for most people. Also the sun and clouds wallpaper would make a great default. Cool Nice!

Does anyone have a later Transmission than 1.20
that supports magnets? The later Transmission in 5.3.3 slickpet did not work with magnets. To use Transmission libevent.lib (I think it is) is also needed.

Another thing in 5.3.3 Flash when downloaded tended to freeze about 3/4 into youtube vids. Does anyone know which Flash is working best?

Have updated wiki front page for now.

Screeny (under graphics) needs xwd is that being provided - there is a screensaver in Mtpaint - and I think you have a script that makes use of mtpaint screensaver?

Cool


I use 5.3.3 and the default tranmission is 1.20. I downloaded the 2.51 pet from http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko/

The magnets work. I don't know if there is a better way, but I copy the link address, go to transmission, click file - open url, then past the link address, click open, and it downloads great.

This may be the one Mick is after. 1.20 is the default in 5.3.3.1
Many thanks Smile

Update:
the 2.7MB Transmission is not the one. There is another optimised and shrunk and closer to the 171K of version 1.20 Transmission. Anyone know of this and have a copy? It was compiled by 'gulk' . . .

PostPosted: Tue 26 Jun 2012, 02:45    Post subject: locale issue  

Same as slacko 5.3.3, there is an issue when boot up slacko with 'pfix=ram.nox' option and choose 'en_US' locale in the coming dialog does not create /usr/lib/locale/en_US.
Was the mismatching between the firstrun and the woof, but still remains with the firstrun-2.1. Sad

Please remove the entry 'export LC_COLLATE=en_US', which is not in the Multilingual/Japanese editions and not in the recent woof anymore.

PostPosted: Tue 26 Jun 2012, 02:57    Post subject: Slovakian keyboard  

It will be fixed in the next firstrun release, but ...
/usr/share/i18n/keymaps has 2 entries for the slovakian keyboards.
Code:
sk-qwerty%(Slovakia)
sk-qwertz%(Slovakia)

But it should be:
Code:
sk-qwerty%(Slovakia)
sk%(Slovakia)

- ui-ziggy, PPM (not working, ui-classic works ok)

The PPM of the most recent woof has an issue launched at the first time. The second time, it works normally.

FYI, there is petget-20120418. (but lacking the function of the multi repository search)

1. Decided to try [for the 1st time ever] to make a Frugal install of a Puppy [Slacko-5.3.3.1-SCSI] to a Flash Drive [4GB].
[Used the icyos2 video HOWTO as a guide]
It was successful, so this new PC is the first on which I've ever been able to BIOS-boot USB->[Flash_Drive].
(a) Used Xfe to navigate to the folder holding the ISO file.
(b) Opened a terminal window in that folder, and tried to use the filemnt command to mount the [file system within the] ISO file.
That FAILED!
Confused
Got some warning I forget.
So next I tried the following, which succeeded...
(c) Right-clicked on the ISO file and chose to "Open with...", and navigated to the filemnt program.
(d) Copied all of the files to the [FAT32] partition on the Flash Drive.
Must it be formatted FAT32? [If using grub4dos?]
(e) Ran "Menu->System->grub4dos", and did the necessary. How easy this is! Makes all the difference!

2. My BIOS Setup [ASRock H61M-S mobo] has a less-than-easy method of specifying the boot sequence/priority.
And even though I saved the setting changes...
Seems like they spontaneously changed back, and had to be re-specified, after...
I booted with the Puppy Slacko Flash Drive...
Then [shut down, and] removed it...
And rebooted with the Slacko CD in the drive/drawer, so that was what booted, then...
Shut down, plugged in the Slacko Flash Drive, and switched on.
No bootable drive was found! Sad
(a) Went back into the BIOS Setup, and re-specified the settings, and saved them.
Seems to be working OK now.
Flash Drive is top of the list...
And that boots before the [disk in the] Optical Drive...
Then, if I [shut down, and] remove the Flash Drive, then switch on...
The disk in the Optical Drive boots OK.
WHEW!
Thank goodness for that. Very Happy
