Hi pemasu

Apologies that I've been rather busy the last couple of days....

Just to confirm that the wl driver is loaded correctly for my b43 wifi and then if I blacklist wl and reboot the b43 driver and associated firmware is also correctly loaded.

The dmesg output when the b43 driver is loaded:
Code:
[  162.160042] b43-phy0: Loading firmware version 666.2 (2011-02-23 01:15:07)

[  180.796945] wlan0: associated

also sns screenie

I have had the following errors when moving files from one directory to another with rox-filer:
Code:
Moving /root/dmesg.txt as /mnt/home/test3/dmesg.txt
mv: preserving permissions for `/mnt/home/test3/dmesg.txt': Operation not supported
Failed to move /root/dmesg.txt as /mnt/home/test3/dmesg.txt

Done
There was one error.

The file is actually moved correctly....

Cheers

Dpup Wheezy 5.3.2.3 has been uploaded

It consists of bug fixes and has been built with latest woof. The previous build was created with woof in the middle of large scripts updates and some bugs had been found. Also bacon was broken...or better hug.so was not compliant any more. I have added dconf framework so the relying applications....like gnome-mplayer... remember now settings. Libx264-dev should be now in devx sfs. Rox right clicks has been updated by the work by don570. Couple of missing icons has been added also.

Peebee. Thank you of the feedback ! Your test should be the final confirmation that firmware loading from puppy all-firmware location works. And that also Rerwin`s logistic files works.
Code:
[  162.160042] b43-phy0: Loading firmware version 666.2 (2011-02-23 01:15:07)

That is about nicest thing I have read today. Really great.

About Rox-Filer bug. That needs other reports with latest Dpup Wheezy. As I told previous woof was not fully ok.
I dont have any problems or error messages with Rox move operations.

5.3.2.3

Fresh pfx=ram... all went well, wifi installed without a hitch.

shutdown...

Then... Did an update to the previous 5.3.2.2 save file... again all wet well except lost a few icons of personal stuff that had to be reinstalled and the background picture.

Foxfire had a new update to 18.02 from 18.01... let that install and on a reload of FF flashplayer was gone? Had to reinstall the latest version from menu>network and youtube and some other places that require flash worked fine.

Issue with NASA TV cutting in and out... still there.

One thing I do find (and not just with Wheezy)... 'The Fonts' in the overall program (not the pinstall stuff) are just too d*m thin and small for my old eyes... is there a way we can get them to look like they do in say... Exprimo-3.6.2 ???

No problems here either and I've moved a bunch of stuff
on two machines. Using ext3 and/or ext4 partitions and fat32 flash drives.

...and so do i , fonts in exprimos looks far better Smile

another thing: (maybe not relevant only for this wheezy)
does this wheezy has udf filesystem in it (see Barry recent post here) http://bkhome.org/blog2/?viewDetailed=00096
How to do it if not?

Thanks for any answer!
charlie
(ps: nooo...there wasn't any bad plan nor kind of conspiration together with forum member sszindian to bring you to update this wheezy ... Wink )

Fatter fonts a la exprimo. It is just matter what stuff you have inside /etc/fonts. I just copied the configuration files from exprimo. You can do it manually by copying /etc/fonts/* from any Puppy.

Charlie6. Yes, I have all the updated scripts needed for improved filesystem detection. How to format usb or hdd ( are you nuts !) to udf, I dont have slightest idea. But....just hunt the info from the net...or from murga-linux. I believe the fix was meant for certain udf formatted disks (optical media) which were not detected properly with new kernels.

Hi pemasu,

It would be really nice if fonts in all your (and other's) builds were like in Exprimo by default. People would say then: "Them, pemasu-style fonts look good out of the box."

I am in paranoid mood, heh, Font conspiracy now. Lol.
I dont have any objections to use the font outlook which was in Exprimo. I didnt get much feedback about font after first squeeze builds. So...I didnt know if people liked it or not.
I change the font outlook in next build. If the base components start to behave, then it is time to check what Puppyland apps should be or not be in the base build.

Hi pemasu

I still have my copy errors with 3.5.2.3

This is a pristine manual frugal install onto an ntfs formatted disk with an ext2 savefile.

The error appears after the savefile is created.

To test, I made 2 new test directories and copied 16 files between them - 16 errors - see screenie
Code:
Copying /mnt/home/zzz1/Worcester GBG 2014.xlsx as /mnt/home/zzz/Worcester GBG 2014.xlsx
cp: preserving permissions for `/mnt/home/zzz/Worcester GBG 2014.xlsx': Operation not supported
Failed to copy '/mnt/home/zzz1/Worcester GBG 2014.xlsx'

Done
There were 16 errors.

The same error occurs with 01micko's new Slacko 5.4.0.2

Cheers

Peebee. Sounds like woof bug then. There were many changes in filesystem - partition handling scripts. I believe this will get attention. You should post the finding also in Slacko thread...so that it get more publicity.

Okay. Peebee has been busy. He has posted to the Slacko thread and to the Barry`s blog.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=683035#683035
So...the fix can be done by downgrading the initrd ntfs-3g, which means that savefile problem comes back with compressed ntfs. So many of us really need and use compressed ntfs with Puppy. Right ?

And here is more info about udf. There is the post above by 01micko for those interested.

Re udf "multisession"
Yes, udf should work like using a normal read-write hard-disk or flash drive -you'll want to make sure that /tmp and possibly /var (and /proc, /sys, ??) are mounted on tmpfs or otherwise isolated from / so that any writes there do not go to the udf filesystem. aufs could still be useful there, but should not be required.
There are relevant patches floating around between debian, gento and arch, for the udftools -I see I don't have my more-complete patch-set uploaded -you need some init scripts to set the device up at startup also. I was just working on this a few days ago -adding still another patch, so I'll try to get the sources all tidied up and uploaded.

UDF patches, etc.
OK, here you go:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/amigolinux/download/Utils/udftools-1.0.0b5/
You should find everything you need there to get it going. Best to download everything you find there as it is not all available elsewhere any longer. There's quite a few docs, there too in Resources.


Well, it looks like there would be need for more initrd fixes before the usage would be fully supported. If I understood right.
