stifling. In this link: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=645979#645979

you will find tar ball of kernel kit. Inside it is several my used and 01micko`s used DOTconfigs of 3.X kernels. Inside folder configs_extra.

Just grap from there. I think there isnt 3.0 version, but the one used in 3.1 or newer should work also.

And...you can use that kernel kit for compiling. It is nowadays real easy to use....about kernel compiling for dummies....really. Not much expertise is needed when using kernel-kit. Thanks to Iguleder and 01micko. Unasked advertisement, lol.

Don;t go too far back....some of the earlier ones did not support my audio....which version of upup are you thinking of....I'll test and see if it's a no show for my chip.

thanks

FWIW, Precise 3.7.2 didn't work on the newer Nvidia boxes either ....... everything else worked so well that I compiled k-3.2.37 (latest at the time) for it.
Aren't computers fun......... Smile

Haven't tried the kernel kit yet .... is it really that easy? Better than the old-school way?

Hello Pemasu

Quote:
There have been reports of freezing of certain comps with 3.8.X kernels in Upup Raring


I'm not clear what "freezing" means i.e temporary or permanent.

What I found playing back MPEG2 video on VLC 2.1 was intermittent breaks in playback. But it did not happen with H.264 playback.

Since it was the one with very low CPU load that had the problem, i guessed that it might be to do with idle.

I put idle=poll on the kernel line, and that fixed the problem at the cost of a few Watts, at idle.

idle=mwait also fixes the problem without increasing the power noticeably. But I thought mwait was the default. Has the 3.8.x kernel changed the default?

I have only tried idle=mwait briefly, so I don't know whether it is a complete solution.

Good afternoon, pemasu, and all,

i am just trying upup raring 3.8.4.2. Want testing Abiword with a 5 MB Testfile (txt). Open it faster than other puppys, well - nice. I tried to make a change in 'preference', and CRASH. The Error messages looks like a gtk-problem (see attachment, copy from .history).

Can i get help to solve it?

Nice build... what I have tested so far (a routine I use for most builds) works well. If it didn't, you know me... I'd say so Wink

Did by chance anyone find a Google Earth '.sfs' that would run in raring? I've tried about 8 various ones I have and the best I can get is the initial 'flash screen' from a few of them?

This one works, Google_Earth-6.0.3.2197-luki.sfs
I've been using Google maps and find it to be very good as well.

PostPosted: Fri 05 Apr 2013, 00:41    Post subject: Opera SFS will not work  

Running Raring from bootable USB drive, formatted in fat32.

sfs files of Opera 12.14 and 12.15 that were made via dir2sfs and others downloaded
in the forum will not run. The sfs files run in Slacko 5.5.

Opera 12.15, extracted to /mnt/home runs with no problems.

Kind of a show stopper for me, since Opera is my browser of choice.

Hmmm... I tried that one but only got to the flash-screen, it usually works with most of the newer puppy builds, maybe I have to look into it a little deeper or, might be my particular box has something Raring don't like and won't let it work?

'Thanks for the comeback.'

EDIT: (Today 5 Apr) Tried several configs with Google_Earth-6.0.3.2197-luki.sfs and it just won't do anything past the flash-screen??? Something missing for sure!
