Precise has JWM version vsvn-574 that is not screen rotation compatible. So I compiled the latest from svn, version 581 that is (and actually pretty fast)
Here it is.

PostPosted: Sun 25 Nov 2012, 18:10    Post subject: kernel panic on an Intel D525MW board  

On a machine built with Intel's D525MW board with an Atom dual-core processor, 4 GB RAM and integrated graphics I get a kernel panic right after loading vmlinuz and initrd.gz yielding this message:
Code:
[1.877454] Kernel panic - not syncing:  VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown block (2,0)


Checked that puppy_precise_5.sfs is on the disk/drive. This appears to be a problem mounting the initrd.

To make sure this was not the result of a bad read, burn or bad dvd drive I also booted from a flash drive that works on other machines, with the same result. The only thing unusual about the machine, besides the 4 GB RAM, is an SSD in place of the usual hard drive. But, that should not affect anything at this stage.

Ideas?

Added: this problem does not occur with Fatdog 6.01 or Lupu 5.28.005.

PostPosted: Sun 25 Nov 2012, 23:50    Post subject: libreoffice?  

So far I'm loving the new Precise Pup. I only wish I was up to speed enough to help out the developers.



I used the tool in Lucid to build the SFS file for the latest version of LibreOffice. I loaded it in Precise. I haven't pushed it too hard, but it seems to be working just fine.

But how would Precise users normally go about getting LibreOffice?

The "get LibreOffice" tool doesn't seem to be available in Precise (the repository seems quite bare, but I guess it's too new to have many PET files available yet), and the version of LO in the Ubuntu repository is way out of date (and also not SFS).

This thread is probably the wrong place to have asked, but I thought it might be a significant enough menu item that it should perhaps be considered for the next service pack or ISO upgrade.

I beleive Pemasu has made a LibreOffice (LO) PET that works with Precise. The PPM could install LO into the system without the expense of the download build and SFS process to have LO omni present in the system.

It is my belief (although more knowledgible people will weigh-in) that PET are for incorporation into the system as a permanent presence in the system, while SFS intend to provide selected use of a product like LO, when needed by doing an SFS-load; as such SFS exist outside of the system and is layered in when needed. (This is just one view of advantage.)

The PPM has a long tradition of handling PETs.

Appeal to @Pemasu to get his PET to @BarryK. This would then show up in the PPM for Precise installation.

Here to help

Subject description: retrovol-tray
 

I want to remove the launch of retrovol-tray because I find it too ram hungry.
So I deleted the launcher found in /root/Startup.
But retrovol icon remains present in the taskbar (tested with JWM).
I do not understand why ...

Accurate. We had to delete some lines in delayed run.
Code:
#101004 jemimah has disabled tray applet in retrovol, now using obmixer_tray...
if [ ! -f /root/Startup/obmixer_tray ];then
 if [ ! -f /root/Startup/retrovol_tray ];then #101013
  if [ "`which retrovol`" != "" ];then
   if [ "`retrovol -help 2>&1 | grep '\-show'`" != "" ];then
    retrovol ${BGOPT} & #100119 tray volume control by pizzasgood. 100504
   else
    retrovol -hide ${BGOPT} & #100413 versions after 0.2. 100504
   fi
  fi
 fi
fi

Note: the launcher retrovol placed in /root/Startup is useless (except pupplet Jemimah).

Thank you for this information.
Very Happy

No, don't delete it, just change it's properties to not-executable (right-click on the file, select 'Properties'), then restart JWM.

The latest Service Pack, bumps Precise Puppy from version 5.4.1 to 5.4.1.1.

Announcement and download link here:
http://bkhome.org/blog2/?viewDetailed=00039

The dvdauthor in the service_pack-5.4.1_TO_5.4.1.1_precise.pet is 111kB and it is still broken.
The only working dvdauthor is the one extracted from the slacko 533, which is 135kB large.
Or the PET:

Precise Puppy 5.4.2 is released. This was going to be 5.4.1.2, but I bumped it, as quite a lot of changes at Woof-level.
