Some goodies to test.

I will get on to more serious things soon.

Firstly, It's Christmas again and once again Joe Wing is back in action. He is up to revision 587 as of 17 December and seems to have fixed the compositing bug which first appeared in revision 520 (or so).

Secondly, Thunor has been steadily progressing with gtkdialog and is now at revision 496, getting close to the next stable release.

Both are attached. Report any issues.

EDIT: Attachment jwm-587 removed, test jwm-590 near the bottom of this page

@01micko
Hi,
I made an sfs of openbox and the latest lxpanel that is working well in Slacko-54,let me know if you'd like to check it out and I'll give you a download link.

EDIT:How about jwm+lxpanel? Smile

I had downloaded and am using Slacko 5.4 Final frugally installed.
The md5sum checks out ok.
But the list of built in files seems to lack inclusion of Firefox in the list.
I want to be able to completely remove Firefox and use Seamonkey in it's place.
I currently have Seamonkey installed and did a rename of the hidden file .mozilla in the /root directory to .oldmozilla.
I then systemlinked my .mozilla directory into /root so I can use it for all my installs of Puppy running Seamonkey.
The problem I am having is that I am getting severe pauses when entering text in a post, videos are also not playing properly etc. when running Seamonkey.
I think it might be a cache problem with Firefox caching stuff even though it is not running but Seamonkey is.

So, is there a list of the files that are installed by Firefox that I can delete and then do a reinstall of Seamonkey.
Of course, I would initially remove the link to my external .mozilla file to protect it until I had Seamonkey installed.

Suggestions gladly accepted.

Thank you 01micko.
That list of installed files for Firefox is unreal!
Going by the line count in geany when I open that file as text, it looks like 1277 files approximately.
And that is a lot of files to individually remove.
Do you suppose a utility I saw a while back on removing built-in files would work?
I just do not look forward to manually removing them although I suppose if I did a quiet delete of the associated directories, I might have a fighting chance.
But one thing that bothers me is if removal of it would break the CUPS browser interface and if there are other things in Puppy that depend on any of the files associated with it.

I will have to give it a go and see I guess as I have my slackosave file backed up for being able to easily undo the changes if need be.

PostPosted: Sat 22 Dec 2012, 13:50    Post_subject: 5.4 FF non PAE  

Slacko-5.4 FF non PAE

Been testing Slacko 5.4 quiet extensively since its introduction and I must say, 'This Is The Best Of The Best Of The Latest Distro's I've Tested To Date!'

Graphics on this old Dell 4 Dimension 3000 are crystal clear!

5-4 is fast...'Very Fast!'

WiFi with a Linksys AE1000 using rt2800usb seems to be working very well so far. At first I experienced a few 'drops' and it did not auto restart itself, had to do a reboot to activate it again but, that hasn't happened for awhile now.

The New Google Earth installed from the PPM (Phew... very large) is without doubt the best, and fastest google earth I have ever used!!! Again, clarity is just outstanding!

So far, the only fault I can find is with xscreensaver not displaying the picture-graphics in GLslideshow and Carousel. This has been an issue with the last several versions of Slacko and I hope 'someone' can come up with an answer in the near future??? All other modules of xscreensaver work properly.

All in all... a superb distro mic! 'congratulations!!!'

Sub_title: Slacko 5.4 PAE not detecting Audio CDROM (Fixed?)
 

I am trying to rip an Audio CDROM. Both CDMusic (Pmusic) and Asunder do not see the Audio CDROM in my USB CDROM/DVD device. Previously (Slacko 5.3.3 4G), an audio cdrom when in the USB device, would show on the desktop as an unmounted CD. Clicking on it would bring up Pmusic to listen to it. Now, nothing is shown and no actions. Any ideas on what could be wrong. Thanks for any help on this one.

New/resolved: After a reboot, I decide to check if the link (/dev/cdrom) was present and It was. I also check to make sure /dev/cdrom pointed to the correct device (/dev/sr0) and it was correct. I did try the CDROM player/ripper and this time, it worked properly. However, still no icon for the CD drive. It does show for a data disc.

PostPosted: Sun 23 Dec 2012, 09:57    Post_subject: Re: Slacko-5.4-PAE frugal - problems with savefile  

Consentient has reported here, that switching to PAE version has resolved his/her "slow writing to savefile" problem.
________________________

(Continuation of this post.)

For now I'm using dirty (literally) workaround that seems to repress the problem in some extent:
Code:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_background_ratio
echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_ratio

(I've added it to rc.sysinit temporarily)

I know those values are stupid, but although HDD usually still catches deadlock during writing bigger files to pup_ro1, at least after 1-2 minutes the rest of a file is being written, more or less fluently - no total hangs, no need to use power button anymore (so far).

Anyway, it's still no real solution...

Greetings!

Thanks for reports.

I have been a little "slack" lately.. you know, holidays and such, but this issue is on my radar.

My thoughts are is that this is possibly an AUFS issue. Pure speculation at this stage, however I will attempt some tests and see if I can reproduce and also look at the AUFS maiilng lists to see if something similar is reported.

Cheers

BUG: fails to boot

tested fresh USB live install of
slacko-5.4-opera-PAE

On Core 5 : OK
on Core 7: does not boot: can't find puppy_slacko5.4.sfs

P.S. Could you upgrade as well FFmpeg to version 1.0 or latest build, as it fixes anoying synchronisation bugs.

Thanks for Slacko

PostPosted: Mon 24 Dec 2012, 05:21    Post_subject: First look at Puppy Linux 5.4 "Slacko"
Sub_title: DistroWatch Weekly, Issue 488, 24 December 2012
 

Interesting review of Slacko 5.4 in the new Distrowatch Weekly.


Quote:
As we are coming up on the end of the year I want to take a look at a project which is unique and outside the mainstream of Linux projects. I don't think any project embodies distinct and useful technology quite as well as Puppy Linux does. Puppy's 5.4 "Slacko" edition was released recently and it struck me as an interesting and fun way to wrap up the year.

Hello I currently am using Slacko 5.4 with the Compiz SFS, but lxpanel (which comes in that sfs) doesn't refresh it's menus when an app is installed.

Also the sfs-manager doesn't have the devx listed.

There is a bug in 587-8-9 that causes random X crashes. I have been working with Joe on this and we believe it is solved in revision 590 (attached).

Test and enjoy!

I tested with new jwm 588 and 589 versions. I got several times X crash and in kernel messages I noticed jwm seqfault message. So...I didnt upgrade jwm. I will see how jwm matures, but nice to see that Joe Wing is again in Christmas time working with jwm.


Thanks 01micko. Testing jwm-590 now in Upup Precise. If X has not crashed in 24 hours, it surely will look better than previous versions.

Yes, I have been compiling for myself with '--enable-debug' and sending the /tmp/xerrs.log to Joe. I did find a reliable way to reproduce the crash, as did Joe and it is fixed in 590. Cool . Compositing should be ok too now.
