I've had the full install. Upgraded (not wipe) to 5.4 and now my poor Slacko isn't feeling too well anymore. The file manager and Chromium isn't starting, no background pictures... It has to be put out of its misery I guess. :(

I'm getting this when trying to run programs: "[...] symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0: undefined symbol: g_bytes_unref"

@Namm

sounds similar to the problems I was having, odd page displays and 'bugginess (yes concise tech term!)

the file issues on my own (frugal) install was limited to the opening (mounting) of partitions (2 partitions on 2 drives), when opened they operated freely

having the same problem affecting 2 different drives rules out drive issues

I have rolled back to 5.3.3 and the problems have disappeared

I did a full install of my remastered slacko-54 PAE to my acer netbook.

It's running well on this netbook but a tad warm, I may try the
non-PAE for a comparison.

EDIT:screenshot2 shows the non-PAE version running 7 degrees cooler
than the PAE version on this netbook.

EDIT:screenshot3 shows the non-PAE version running on a 6 core amd processor, super cool.

EDIT:screenshot4 shows the PAE version running on the 6 core amd processor, it's super cool too so it just makes a difference on the single core amd netbook.

Sorry for the off-topic, I've made a .pet of Openbox with extra addons that you can find here:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=82800

Works in Slacko, Precise and Wary, may work in other Puppies.

Subject description: xorgwizard setup failure
 

I have been using Slacko 5.3.3 on my ASUS Eee PC and it works just fine. When I attempt to boot Slacko 5.4, xorgwizard failed both initially and a manual attempt. ASUS Eee PC uses the Intel Atom with Intel Poulsbo Graphic Chip (500 GMA). Normally, one uses the vesa driver with the Intel hack to the mode table. This has work for a good while. I am surprised that the failure.

I also tried Precise Puppy 5.4.1 and got the same failure. I suspect the problem may be in the Woof build, which is common to the two versions.

For now, I will be using Slacko 5.3.3 with this computer. I did check on possible solutions. Tempestuous did post drivers for Puppy 5.1 back awhile. Any thoughts on possible solutions?

12-10 update: I did check Tempestuous drivers for Puppy 5.0/5.1 The kernel module is build for kernel 2.6.33.2 and not compatible with Slacko 5.4 kernel 3.2.33 I did more searching and found the problem with Slacko 5.4. Tempestuous explains it in this post:http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=82759&search_id=1684246909

PostPosted: Sun 09 Dec 2012, 17:59    Post subject: PPLOG - error 500 on Slacko-5.4-PAE
Subject description: continuation...
 

It's getting funnier - I noticed that installing 666philb's gtk-youtube-viewer has fixed PPLOG issue.

I don't know Perl at all, so by trials & errors I have found the following 4 files are responsible for that:
/usr/share/perl5/unicore/Heavy.pl
/usr/share/perl5/overloading.pm
/usr/share/perl5/utf8_heavy.pl
/usr/share/perl5/utf8.pm


Simply copying these files from devx.sfs to corresponding locations in real filesystem seems to fix PPLOG, however I didn't test if everything works correctly - it just makes that error 500 disappears (at least for me)...

Greetings!

Hello Smile!

On a similar note ...

An executable that has been hidden away in the devx for a long time is /usr/bin/update-mime-database, which is needed to properly update the mime-database.
I usually add some mime-types to my Puppies, and feel that is more of a maintenance-task than a development-kind-of-task.
Not having /usr/bin/update-mime-database readily accessible in a vanilla Pup can easily lead to the tinkerer's hack of just editing /usr/share/mime/globs(2) Embarassed Embarassed - vapourised on the next proper update of the mime-database ...

Yes, I've learnt since quite some time to supply my /usr/share/mime/packages/*****.xml - load the devx - and then update the mime-db.

The point I'm trying to get through is that updating the mime-types-db is something that should be readily do-able in a non-development environment.

Not specific to Slacko in any way ... just my Pup of choice Smile.

Anyway Smile, [/rant], Smile/ MHHP

if a .pet contains more than one application, each with separate .desktop files, they both end up in the same part of the menu.

for instance i had to package gtk-youtube-viewer with sakura terminal for slacko 5.4. and even though the sakura .desktop file was set to utility, it appeared in the multimedia menu along with gtkyoutube-viewer.

installing in precise is fine

Hi. As recommended by darkcity in this thread in the Beginners Help forum, here's a problem I have with the new Slacko 5.4:

liro wrote:
When I first started using Puppy earlier this year, I originally decided to use Wary (5.3), thinking it might be more suitable for my oldish laptop (IBM Thinkpad X31), but eventually changed to Slacko 5.3.3, which has run fine for me since.

One of the main reasons I stopped using Wary was due to a problem with "suspension" on closing the laptop lid. It would suspend okay, but on reopening the lid it wouldn't wake up again, leaving me with a black screen and having to reboot. After spending too much time messing about with the ACPI settings, I eventually gave up and started using Slacko instead.

Now... I've just tested out Slacko 5.4 and unfortunately this same suspension problem I had with Wary has reappeared in the newer version of Slacko.

Does anyone know what has changed from Slacko 5.3.3 to Slacko 5.4 for this problem to have come back? (and if so, how I can fix it). If there's no simple solution, I think I'll just stick with 5.3.3 for now...

Thanks.

hi SFR,

this kinda makes sense, as gtk-youtube-viewer is packaged with some perl packages that are in the devx.

Installed on USB for my sisters zoostorm laptop.
Had to use the second option to install to USB (the Boot Flash installer rather than the universal installer).
Seems to be OK.
My sister has acute paranoia, taping over her in built camera in case [changing delusions] get pics of her . . . May get her a tin foil hat for Christmas Very Happy - must be kind, she is not well . . .

I am using Slacko now and was glad to have the Openshot SFS, which seems OK. Maybe over Christmas will try getting SecondLife running with my Radeon card and Slacko . . .

Been busy with the paranoid and other suffering, so not much Puppy time. Have managed to practice some meditation to help with all the present 'Karma' [stuff that hits the fan]
http://yinyana.tumblr.com/post/37704458128/to-a-man-who-wears-shoes-the-whole-world-is

Thanks to Barry and Micko, really like Slacko. Just having those SFS of big programs running on a fast Puppy - nice . . .

Today, BK tells us:
Quote:
However, other recent Woof-built pups, such as Slacko 5.4, would also be able to use it, just take out the Precise-package-related files and leave in Woof files. So, here is the PET (422K):
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-precise/service_pack-5.4.2_TO_5.4.2.2_precise.pet

Any chance you could expand on that explanation, please, micko - the 'take out' part in particular?

@Sage, I'll get back to you about that and soon will make an SP1 designed for Slacko-5.4, stay tuned,

*************

In other news...

Finally [ Rolling Eyes ], the PAE version is up at ibiblio and the upload didn't break so the checksum *should* be ok, should be up at nluug by now also, confirmation required, TIA. EDIT: checksum now confirmed correct at nluug. Aarnet is wrong, I have emailed the webmaster.

Just the devx and FF version (which broke, but leaving broken piece there to overwrite at a later date) to go...
