Dear Darkcity

I would like to inform you that now I am getting internet on Start up after inserting the Code on /root/.start. However, another problem cropped up. i.e. now time clock is not showing properly.

@rameshiyer

is the solution similar to Stifiling's suggestion, here?
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=677048#677048

Could add the code to /root/.start if you don't want to manually run the script everytime.

BTW is there any chance of a Startup folder like in trad Puppy?


EDIT: thanks for USB drive help ; -)

How is the clock not showing properly, wrong time or wrong format. Are you still using the advice from Stifiling?

I haven't bothered setting the correct time and locale on archpup yet.

Darkcity

Wrong time. Now time is around 1.25pm. However, in machine time is around 8.50am. As advised by Stiffing, the code was inserted was "hwclock --localtime --hctosys &" in '/root/.xinitrc' script.

mavrothal: I removed line
Code:
cat $build/aufs3-standalone/include/linux/Kbuild >> include/linux/Kbuild

and compiled only linux-headers package. btw linux-api-headers package is currently in
archpup.sfs, it should be in archdev, good thing for saving 700KB. Will test later compiling
whole kernel modules and vmlinuz, or someone else could test - you would need to do this:
Code:
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/simargl/def-scripts
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/simargl/spkg
cd spkg
sh install

Then copy linux from def-scripts to /mnt/home/data/puppy/def-scripts and type:
spkg -c linux.

Good.
Now you could build aufs-utils without problems.
Just remember to build "shared" instead of the default "static" (sed -i 's/static/shared/' Makefile) otherwise you get a 20-times bigger package

It would appear though that linux/def is still not building and packaging headers. Just the kernel and the modules.

Latter: I see you are moving to 3.7.2 Cool
Be advised however that aufs will fail again, even with the last fix.
3.7.x aufs also needs:
Code:
cp -r $build/aufs3-standalone/include/uapi/linux/aufs_type.h include/uapi/linux

Compiled 3.7.2 kernel and using it right now, Smile
BUT there is one problem - aufs header is missing from /usr/include/linux, file aufs_type.h is not
created in that folder after make INSTALL_HDR_PATH=$destdir/usr headers_install. Will try to
fix it, to only make linux headers I commented two lines
Code:
  #make menuconfig
  #make bzImage modules

and added exit at the end of compile function, so package function never starts.
What's worth to mention - with linux-3.6.8 using same method aufs header - IS created.

Sub_title: IR 6055 Linux Driver
 

Dear Sir

I have installed the printer driver. However, I regret to inform you that I am not able to print. I don't know the reasons. In windows, it asks the Department Id and Password. However, here I don't find any builtin settings or not asking any ID or PWd while giving print order .? This is network printer so no direct connection is provided. Every department having Numeric Id and Password. In windows, there is no problem. Any such option is available in Canon Linux Printer Driver. Sir, do you have any idea.

There may be some other things to try. Please continue the discussion in your original thread here.

simargl,
what is the "linux-headers-3.6.8-1.tar.bz2.gz" file you posted above?
Neither pacman nor tar can handle it (I did try also removing .gz of .bz2) Confused
(Latter: I guess it is what it says. A gzipped bzipped tarball Shocked
The headers work fine though Very Happy )


Regarding the 3.7.2 kernel, I trust you added "include/uapi/linux/aufs_type.h".
What "make headers_check" says?

BTW Aufs support for 3.7.x just started and may have problems. Also any drivers compiled against 3.6.8 must be recompiled...
If you plan a 12.12.3 you may want to stick with 3.6.8

Yes, but this has to do with how it was compiled, the firmwere and udev. Not with the kernel version.
All the other puppies with the exception of the latest Upup, have considerably older kernels. How do they do with your hardware?...

@oui: There's icecat package available in AUR https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/icecat/, maybe it will work better than debian's or other you used.


Hi simargl, thank you for your help that I didn't use until yet because of the obsequies at home.

I did try to download the package at https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/icecat/ and to install it using the option pacman -U according to your recommandations in the build-in help of 12.12.2 but nothing to do...

the option pacman -Ss doesn't find some icecat package (Debian doesn't install icecat but his own iceweasel and doesn't work closely with GNU Wink !)

so that I actually yet use a marvelous actual version of Slitaz (under 1 Go with full TeX live and Lyx installed; please, it is no provocation from me: Slitaz did have big problems in the last 2 years but they are evidently solved! an perfect X windows, a Linux conform management of users and password excepted that user 'tux' is standard (can be changed; if changed at installations time, or after the first start under installation from a real password) that I did discover to overcome my difficulties in ArcPup. if user created at installations time, he doesn't need some password (and can do 'su' or 'sudo' without password Idea ; 'root' does also co exist with password 'root' or other password). if created after first start, it become a full linux with full password control! what can be more flexible? a great among of applications in the 44 MB Iso of the "rolling version" (the stable version stay on ab. 30 MB Iso but is 1 year old, really old...), a really full support with an absolutely transparent organisation: www.slitaz.org, forum.slitaz.org, mirror.slitaz.org, doc.slitaz.org in a lot of languages, an automatic versions control in the doc between language versions Idea (a real dream for not English spoken Puppy users Razz ), a full repository with all packages from slitaz and from users, and sources for all the stuff since version 1.0 and an old as well as a full actualized new Slitaz scratch book! this are really heavy high standards for a little troupe! the installations system is an best specimen of the art using the browser as frontend (Slitaz panel with abilities to install new packages)! it is possible to bind the main partition as /home/ and create at installations time in that /home/ the user dir /home/tux properly so that you can reinstall without difficulty and changes in the main partition other as in /home/tux and never have to mount it extra! extraordinary performances from the smallest linux distro Idea : half of ArchPup, quarter of other actual Puppy's. There is no icecat or libre kernel but my own copy of icecat works properly in it. Please, look at it to develop ArchPup as modern with an equivalent high logical organization!

You can't use pacman to install packages from the AUR. The AUR contains no actual packages, just sources and scripts. Those files are used to locally create a package and install it. These packages aren't actually thoroughly tested enough for use by a normal user.
