It was a large download + updating packages with slackpkg for another
large download but it's working great so far.

I'm looking forward to the next slacko too Smile

EDIT: The nexuiz screenshot is from a slackware 14 install on a dual core computer using the nouveau driver which works better than the proprietary nvidia driver imo.

Hi

I too get the black screen after xwin starts, ctrl-alt-backspace doesn't work - using USB keyboard and from pressing caps-lock it looks like there is no response.

Got it to work by adding pfix=nox, then using xorgwizard to select Vesa instead of Xorg. Xorg still no good with mesa-8.04.

In the Puppy Package I can only select slackware packages.

---

The latest stable AbiWord is 2.8.6, any reason why 2.9.1 is packaged with Slacko?

---

No soundcards detected (worked on 531)

I take it your using ALSA 1.0.25 - nice one.

this is the output from alsawizard

Code:
Getting started...
Building card database, please wait...
/usr/sbin/alsaconf: line 479: /lib/modules/3.2.26-4g/modules.pcimap: No such file or directory
/usr/sbin/alsaconf: line 479: /lib/modules/3.2.26-4g/modules.isapnpmap: No such file or directory
...no device found


---

Everything else seems to be working fine - using frisbee for wireless.

---

Is startmount included?

PostPosted: Thu 23 Aug 2012, 18:06    Post_subject: Increased number of SFS files  

Hopefully with the maximum number of sfs files that can be loaded at boot will be increased, or an application that allows one to boot more than 6 would be helpful?

Is there a sfs combiner that works with Slacko on a USB?

Hi tlchost,

If you have a frugal installation of Slacko you might like to take a backup of your save file and try seaside's load all sfs files in a directory at once
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=346479679&t=74471

Especially if the above works well you may also like Simple Menu from technosaurus which should show a full menu including sfs files very quickly.

I think 01micko said he is thinking about including JWM tools update (also from technosaurus, which looks very professional, shows sfs loads in its menu and is 15 times faster than JWM 'fixmenus').

PupMenu from radky will also show sfs loads (use the full screen "refresh" button or reload as needed). It has many other interesting and useful options.

My regards

PostPosted: Fri 24 Aug 2012, 15:47    Post_subject: pnethood, remasterpup  

I was making Russian remaster of this Slacko and found some bugs. I wanted to test pnethood after translation but I don't have any network to test so it should have displayed an error of no network, but it displays nothing. I fixed it by copying part of working script and pasting it into this one.
Mounted iso-image was not visible in remasterpup so I have applied my old fix, also xz compression is very slow on my PC so I guess it would be nice to have some dialog box with the choice of compression.
Also smaller mplayer pet in this thread is not only smaller but it works better. (No delay between video and sound on downloaded from YouTube clip: BBC Olympics Montage set to John Lennon's Imagine.flv.) Delay was in Racy-5.3 and on bigger Mplayer pet.

Beta is out.

Should be a substantial improvement over alpha, I did plenty of tests on video in a variety of machines:

my test results wrote:

These are video reports from all the hardware I have
except my main nvidia card, it always works anyway, same
with the onboard nvidia in the same box. (Athlon-X2)
I used Nexuiz, an open source 3D shooter introduced to
me by Billtoo to test real world graphics performance, not
scientifically, just either it works or not.
I also have my wife's macbook with nvidia, but that always
works perfectly so didn't test.
I used the "export vblank_mode=0" variable to get the
true glxgears reading in all cases.

Can you try export vblank_mode=0 then glxgears please? I am thinking that nouveau has progressed to the point that it is now better than the proprietary nvidia driver, at least on older cards anyway. It is on my Vanta.

TIA

Can you try export vblank_mode=0 then glxgears please? I am thinking that nouveau has progressed to the point that it is now better than the proprietary nvidia driver, at least on older cards anyway. It is on my Vanta.

TIA



Regular....

Code:
# glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh.  The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
2092 frames in 5.0 seconds = 417.962 FPS
2298 frames in 5.0 seconds = 459.189 FPS
2241 frames in 5.0 seconds = 447.986 FPS
2254 frames in 5.0 seconds = 450.666 FPS
2236 frames in 5.0 seconds = 446.959 FPS


and then......

Code:
# export vblank_mode=0
# glxgears
ATTENTION: default value of option vblank_mode overridden by environment.
2569 frames in 5.0 seconds = 513.746 FPS
2586 frames in 5.0 seconds = 517.164 FPS
2765 frames in 5.0 seconds = 552.925 FPS
2597 frames in 5.0 seconds = 519.284 FPS
2617 frames in 5.0 seconds = 523.296 FPS


Results are a bit higher but for what it's worth the movement of the gears is much choppier and erratic.

Not much diff on the 440, you should see a substantial difference on the intel, as I did and with the radeons.

edit: you beat me! I don't really know what to make of any of that anyway! That's why I use the Nexuiz game as a benchmark. I'll have to look into the performance figures in that. It's a pretty big download though at ~900M, cross platform with mac and windows, but that extra stuff is only a few meg.
