After an update to PhatSlacko 5.5.02, I found that the Write icon on the desktop does not open anything.
Upon investigation of the /usr/share/applications desktop file, I found it still wants to load Abiword.

Might have to await 3.9 James before you can have any fun with f2fs! BTW, I did read about PV's avoidance of 3.8x. What gets me is how the kernel devs get some things so wrong when in previous versions they were stable . Confused .


Just for informational purposes...... Pemasu's Raring with k-3.8.4 is working fine on one of the troublesome Nvidia boxes.Don't know what's different but it's been working fo quite a while.

Maybe...[?]

..it was a bad idea going with 3.8x and an "old" xorg. (re James' post). This thing should not crash on newish gear.. it's meant to be "productive" Laughing .

I guess the temptation of f2fs blurred my vision.

I'll have a think about it.. may roll back for PHAT's kernel in the interest of stability, and if possible patch for f2fs, if not well, no drama Smile .

I have always been tempted by "-current" too.. xorg is very recent there and PV has updated as far as 3.8.4, I'm just waiting for FF-20 before I update my -current (slackware proper for those who don't realise) install.

Anyway, I'm a bit snowed under with real stuff atm so don't be too impatient! Goodies will come.. eventually.. Razz

How did you get the iSight firmware? iSight-firmware tools does not appear to be in the slackware repo. Compiled it from source but keeps giving me the wrong webcam version (8300 instead of the actual 8501) after extracting the OSX firmware.

PostPosted: Wed 03 Apr 2013, 17:12    Post subject: After install, where does everything vanish to?  

I really like this Slacko but am puzzled after installation. Confused Running off the bootable dvd/cd works super fine (Libre, Gimp, VLC)... So I do a frugal install, correctly "paste-up" menu.lst (after grub4dos'ing), & reboot......

Now it looks more like ThinSlacko (not even a browser). To write this post I dnld Seamonkey 2.12.1 with PPM. Smile Thank you!

There we are Very Happy

This post is to address Eyes Only, dennis-slacko531 and others using the stanfard installation tools provided.

They are not Adrive aware!

In the case of frugals, just copy the Adrive sfs to the same place as the main sfs, reboot, you will be good.

In the case of fulls, the Adrive has to be mounted and copied to the root filesystem manually, but don't use rox as sometimes permissions can get distorted. I will provide some commands.

THE FOLLOWING HAS NO WARRANTY, NOT TESTED IN THIS SITUATION, BACK UP CRITICAL DATA FIRST. ONLY FOR FULL INSTALLS, NOT FRUGAL OR USB OR ANYTHING ELSE.

Click the adrive sfs while in your booted full install of PHAT and accept the details in the popup to mount it. In the rox window that pops up open a terminal in that location. Find out the current directory with pwd command. Make sure that looks sane, that is to make sure you opened the term in the right place. Now copy with this command.
Code:
cp -a --remove-destination . /
sync
That's command (cp) [:space:] option 1 (-a)[:space:] option 2 (--remove-destination) [:space:] DOT (.)[:space:] slash (/) [:enter:]
then "sync" [:enter:]

EDIT: This process may take quite a few minutes, there are a lot of files to copy.

Close the term and unmount the adrive sfs by clicking it again.

Reboot

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This will be fixed for next.

I just installed the guvcview from ppm, it works fine in pemasu's
raring 3.8.4.1 and 3.8.4.2, and now PHATSlacko.
I've run other pups on this imac in the past and I'm pretty sure
guvcview works fine on those as well.

The input section of hardinfo shows the isight:

Input Devices
Apple, Inc Apple Keyboard
Apple, Inc Apple Keyboard
Logitech Unifying Device. Wireless PID:400a
Power Button
Sleep Button
Power Button
Video Bus
HDA Digital PCBeep
HDA Intel Line
HDA Intel Headphone
PC Speaker
Built-in iSight

Anyhow, it works Smile

EDIT: lsusb shows this:
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 05ac:8502 Apple, Inc. Built-in iSight

Subject description: Thanks Micko :)
 

Thanks Micko for that fix. Hmm... if all the same I think I'll wait for the next version when you come up with the fix included as that would be far easier for me.

Can't wait however! I've sort of messed up my 3HD install so the next version of PHATSlacko would look mighty nice sitting in that partition if I do say so myself! Wink Take your time though for as they say, "Good things come to those who wait." Or something similar like that. lol!

Keep up the fabulous work mate.

Cheers/Amicalement,

I guess the 8501 firmware did not make it to the kernel.
My hardware info does not have the iSight in input devices but in USB devices with the notion "Built-in iSight (no firmware loaded)" Sad

However if you are to go with adrv, Jemimah's custom builder does everything from splash screen to kernel zdrv. With a bit of fixing/trimming should fly. It will be more handy in THINslacko but PHAT should be OK too.

Yeah, maybe one day.. baby steps first.

The idea is to eventually patch sfs_load, bootmanager, petget and whatever else to be sfs aware. That way you don't get stupid dependencies (ala billtoo with guvcview) that are already in the sfs (be it an adrive, zdrive or whatever sfs).

I'm getting close now...

Works fine.
I guess next will check for missing dependencies and offer to download Wink

I've run other pups on this imac in the past and I'm pretty sure
guvcview works fine on those as well.


I guess the 8501 firmware did not make it to the kernel.
My hardware info does not have the iSight in input devices but in USB devices with the notion "Built-in iSight (no firmware loaded)" Sad


In raring 3.8.4.2 I plugged my logitech quickcam 500 into a usb port
and then started guvcview, it allows me to choose between the builtin
iSight webcam or the logitech in the device section at the top of the
guvcview configuration screen.
If you have another webcam it may work for you.
