I gave ppm a try and downloaded VLC, it didn't take long and is
working great.
Just beginning to test but looking good so far.

Yozo Office maybe a bug.

I have one more suggestion. In Racy, upgrade Ghostscript from here..

Then try the Gutenprint driver again.


Address Not Found

www.datafilehost.com could not be found.


Probably blocked in China.

Try here.


very good!

Excellent! Is that with the Gutenprint driver? Will it also print with the HP Postscript driver from page 32?

Beta 6 is out everyone!

Barry's a bit crook and probably forgot to announce here.

Anyway, I did a cheat frugal using Lilo on my slackware box which has a SiS card. Getting a bit long in the tooth now and res is not correct on first boot with widescreen monitor, native res of 1360x768, it boots to 1280x800 which shits it left and the taskbar is out of view. I tested the thing in quicksetup but I knew it would fail with the 1280x720@75Hz because older flat panels usually only handle 60Hz. So I tested with xrandr and 1280x720 works, so I adjusted the /etc/X11/xorg.conf and it's now all good.

Just a note

The graphics in this thing are problematic with wary/racy and vesa always gets chosen, often resulting in "out of range" messages on the monitor. Since KMS seems to be working right now, there is much better performance and it at least boots to a usable desktop. Perhaps if I were using an old CRT ,which may be a better match for the card, I'd get even better performance. So don't take the above as a complaint, I am happy I get a semi-usable desktop Smile

Thanks

Technosaurus , seems to work :

bash-3.2# guess_fstype /dev/ram5

! Cool

One tiny feature to add to guess_fstype :
[*] Force extended block device numbers and spread them
config DEBUG_BLOCK_EXT_DEVT
bool "Force extended block device numbers and spread them"
depends on DEBUG_KERNEL
depends on BLOCK
default n
help
BIG FAT WARNING: ENABLING THIS OPTION MIGHT BREAK BOOTING ON
SOME DISTRIBUTIONS. DO NOT ENABLE THIS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT
YOU ARE DOING. Distros, please enable this and fix whatever
is broken.

Conventionally, block device numbers are allocated from
predetermined contiguous area. However, extended block area
may introduce non-contiguous block device numbers. This
option forces most block device numbers to be allocated from
the extended space and spreads them to discover kernel or
userland code paths which assume predetermined contiguous
device number allocation.

Note that turning on this debug option shuffles all the
device numbers for all IDE and SCSI devices including libata
ones, so root partition specified using device number
directly (via rdev or root=MAJ:MIN) won't work anymore.
Textual device names (root=/dev/sdXn) will continue to work.

bash-3.2# ls -l `rdev |cut -f1 -d' '`

Having 'sync' in any module-loading code that is called by the kernel, can break things. Sometime ago I took out all syncs.

Besides, sync only flushes the files to the physical drive. Prior to flushing, the files are in RAM buffers and are accessable as per normal.

So, I suggest that the solution to your problem can be found in some other way.

Thank you, Barry, for the info about 'sync' in module-loading code. It has led me to the solution! The pinstall.hsfmodem.sh script had 'sync' commands in it, which when removed allows the package to detect the HSF modem reliably. I have replaced the HSF (woof) package on page 33 with the cleaned up version.

I had a similar problem with Precise for the XO laptops (3.3.8-olpc kernel) failing to find the libertas wireless firmware in both XO-1 (usb8xxx) and XO-1.5 (libertas_sdio) when rc.update was running, ie in the 1st and 2nd boot and after an update.

What unexpectedly solved the problem was (looking for more info) to boot with "loglevel=7"!!!
I doubt is your loglevel 3 kernel patch that generates the problem. I would suspect a race issue alleviated by the (slower) loglevel 7 boot sequence.
Mavrothal, thanks for your info on your similar problem. That suggests that the apparent "fix" was due to added activity changing the timing of things. If you have any syncs left in your code, you might try removing them.

Learning by making public mistakes. Whatever works.

Excellent, there is a gzipped patch in the tarball (though the sources are already patched) to upload to bkhome/sources. The extended spread block devices doesn't seem worth the efforts considering the targets. However the ARM systems may ship with additional default file systems that we could try to support (specifically various flash file systems)

B6 is generally working OK, but not on an AMD1600 with 512Mb - first failure at 'loading....' observed with any release direct from BK. Machine checks out with most other distros including previous betae (presuming that's the correct plural of the Latin spelling for a Greek word?!).

Hello BarryK

I have installed the AMD fglrx video driver using the amd-driver-installer-12.6-legacy-x86.x86_64.run

Report Video 1.3 - Tue 11 Sep 2012 on Precise Puppy 5.3.93 - Linux 3.2.28 i686

Chip description:
5.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RS880 [Radeon HD 4200]
oem: ATI ATOMBIOS
product: RS880 01.00

X Server: Xorg Driver used: fglrx

X.Org version: 1.11.3
dimensions: 1600x1200 pixels (423x317 millimeters)
depth of root window: 24 planes


At some point, when I was fiddling about trying to make the installer work, I had an error from: dpkg on --print-architecture.

It seems that dpkg is provided by BusyBox.

I installed the real dpkg from the Ubuntu repo and the error went away.

Once I got the installer to run without error, I did not need to do anything special to get the driver to work.

EDIT: I have since done a fglrx install with a new savefile and there were no errors from dpkg and fglrx istalled correctly.
