I don't think that wag-profiles.sh should be run from the terminal like that.

Rerwin last edited that script, he can comment if those errors are valid.

If Network Setup works, then wag-profiles.sh does too.

Subject description: NVIDIA, network, textmaker problems
 

Downloaded and installed Precise 5.4.93 (k3.8.0) on my ancient AMD Athlon 2 GB machine with NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 graphics card.

I noted the following problems:

1. report-video lists the driver as "nouveau" although I booted with nouveau.modeset=0. The usual problem of blank menus does not occur and xorg.conf reports "vesa," which is probably correct. glxgears reports 35 fps. Switching the driver to "nv" yields 40 fps. Still much too slow.

2. The proprietary NVIDIA 173.14.35 and 173.14.36 drivers fail to compile with an error message:

Quote:

ERROR: The kernel header file
'/lib/modules/3.8.0/build/include/linux/version.h' does not exist. The
most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files in
'/lib/modules/3.8.0/build' have not been configured.

The required file is, in fact, missing.

On the other hand, VirtualBox 4.2.4 compiles and runs perfectly.

3. Neither pnethood nor YASSM connect to a machine running Puppy (Slacko, Wary), but do connect to a Windows XP share.

4. Textmaker has the strange spell checking error I reported here:

Please try the latest discovery for NV-3X cards (including fx5200) and that is:
Code:
pfix=ram nouveau.noaccel=1

Precise Puppy version 5.4.93

E732 (Acer) laptop with 2gig ram and an i3 proc.
Manual frugal to an NTFS partition and booting via grub4dos on an SDcard.

Very fast and all the basics work as expected OOTB.
Extremely low resource usage.
Fantastic Puppy which to this very average user seems to be as good as can be reasonably expected.

I installed 5493 non pae to an 8gb ext4 formatted SDHC card using the
puppy universal installer and grub4dos as the boot loader.

I installed lxterminal and guvcview from ppm (guvcview works)
I compiled and made pets of several applications.
I installed pemasu's google-chrome-fix-for-deb-install-0.0.1.pet +
google-chrome-stable_current_i386.deb, also installed opera_12.14.1738_i386.deb

I was unable to compile the ati propietary driver, it gave an error:
Supported adapter detected.
Check if system has the tools required for installation.
fglrx installation requires that the system have kernel headers.
/lib/modules/3.8.0/build/include/linux/version.h cannot be found on this system.
One or more tools required for installation cannot be found on the system.
Install the required tools before installing the fglrx driver.
Optionally, run the installer with --force option to install without the tools.
Forcing install will disable AMD hardware acceleration and may make your system
unstable. Not recommended.

Apart from not being able to install the ati driver every else is
working well so far.

Hello BarryK

Precise 5.4.93

Thanks for the CPUID & MSR modules.

Installed and everything is normal on initial configuration: Athlon II X2, RS880G

I have installed TurionPowerControl. Run from rc.local and it is working correctly.

Thanks.

This problem is specific to very new kernels and Samba-TNG servers. I don't think that there is any solution.

You will need to use a full Samba package in Puppy.

Barry. About google-chrome patch. I forgot that google-chrome needs data and media cache restriction.
I have improved the patch so that it now sets those restrictions to 10 Mb. Otherwise /tmp or savefile will be eaten by accumulated data.

Here is the fixed code for google-chrome .deb installation.
Code:
google-chrome-*)
if [ -f /usr/bin/bbe ];then #bbe is a sed-like utility for binary files.
if [ -f /opt/google/chrome/chrome  ];then
bbe -e 's/geteuid/getppid/' /opt/google/chrome/chrome > /tmp/chrome-temp1
mv -f /tmp/chrome-temp1 opt/google/chrome/chrome
chmod 755 /opt/google/chrome/chrome
echo '[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Version=1.0
Name=Google Chrome
GenericName=Web Browser
Comment=Access the Internet
Exec=/usr/bin/google-chrome
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Icon=/opt/google/chrome/product_logo_48.png
Categories=WebBrowser;' > /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop
if [ -f /usr/bin/google-chrome ];then
rm -f /usr/bin/google-chrome
fi
echo '#!/bin/sh
exec /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --user-data-dir=/root/.config/chrome --disk-cache-size=10000000 --media-cache-size=10000000 "$@"' > /usr/bin/google-chrome
chmod 755 /usr/bin/google-chrome
ln -s /usr/bin/google-chrome /usr/bin/chrome
   fi
  fi

Try this fix:

ln -s /lib/modules/3.8.0/build/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /lib/modules/3.8.0/build/include/linux/version.h

I had to create similar symlink for 3.7.2 kernel source. It worked.

Barry is correct. Wag-profiles.sh is a code file included by net_setup.sh and should not be run standalone:
Code:
. ${APPDIR}/ndiswrapperGUI.sh
. ${APPDIR}/wag-profiles.sh
Both of those files should not have execute permission. That way, they can be run via "." but not by themselves.
Richard


BTW, note that I have provided a replacement for the 5.5beta frisbee package:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=684092#684092
I added that notice to my earlier posting about frisbee. Anyone using frisbee should replace it, to restore some of the text that should display. Also, is anyone else seeing wireless reconnects every 30 seconds. other than with driver wl?

PostPosted: Thu 21 Feb 2013, 13:06    Post subject: Improving contrast for ls listing of devices  

linuxcbon wrote:
- when doing for instance ls /dev/ram0 it displays in bright color not easily readable.

linuxcbon,

The default colors used by ls were intended for the Linux text console, which has a black background. You could swap urxvt's foreground and background colors by adding this line to your ~/.Xdefaults file:
Code:
urxvt.reverseVideo: True

(You might want to change the font as well, since Nimbus Mono L, the font that is defined in ~/.Xdefaults seems less legible in reverse video. I simply removed it from ~/.Xdefaults, and let urxvt use a default font.)

But if you prefer the current white background, you can simply change the background color that ls uses to list block devices and character devices.

Add this line to your ~/.bashrc file:
Code:
export LS_COLORS='bd=40;33;01:cd=40;33;01'

Alternatively, you could put it in your /etc/profile.local file or in an appropriate line in your /etc/profile file.

Hi everyone, I found another debdb2pupdb bug. It's in 5.4.3, I have to check yet in the 5.5beta.
Some Ubuntu packages have weird dependencies like "udev(>=", "libx11-6(>>" and so on. The root cause is that in the Ubuntu package databases, in the package dependency data, sometimes the dependent package name and version requirement has no space between them.

To check which packages are affected, run this command:
Code:

grep -e "|+.*(.*|" ~/.packages/Packages-ubuntu-*

Edit: Latest Woof as of 21th Feb 2013 also has this bug.

Cross-posting this from the 5.4.3 thread, 5.5beta has this bug, too.

DOTconfig in 3.8.0 kernel:
# CONFIG_BRCMSMAC is not set

brcmsmac has not been enabled as module, but...the option is now visible....so it is almost there. I suppose brcmsmac can be compiled as independent module without need to recompile whole kernel.

Raffy would like the brcmsmac module....I believe.

Oh...
# CONFIG_BRCMFMAC_USB is not set
I believe that option would give more supported chips for brcmfmac....but not sure....I have always enabled it.

/lib/modules/3.2.29 ....in 3.8.0 kernel Precise Puppy. No need to say more. Some DISTRO_SPECS rows need disabling for 3.8 kernel version.

ar5523 is a Linux kernel driver for the Atheros AR5005UG (802.11b/g) and AR5005UX (802.11a/b/g) USB wireless LAN chipsets.

Firmware is required for device operation.

ar5523: Add firmware for new driver


I hope that firmware is ok.

firmware.dep need again editing and all-firmware possibly new folder for the firmware...or/if how Barry decide with this driver. It is included anyway in the build.

EDIT. Just informational note. New driver:

This pc has a hauppage pvr card in it:
Multimedia video controller Internext Compression Inc iTVC16 (CX23416)

With other recent pups if I put the firmware for it in /lib/firmware
and then reboot, I can use the vlc option to open the capture device
PVR and watch tv but that isn't working with this 380 kernel.
