Thanks Mick

Some problems:

Kernel naming inconsistency in the devx? - see attached +
Code:
# make
KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`
make: *** /lib/modules/3.9.0.0/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
make: *** [all] Error 2

On bootup I get lots of error messages flash up - see bootkernel.log attached and then when I try to reboot I get dumped out to a console which allows typing but does not see any commands - have to power off to recover (this happens for all reboot attempts with or without savefile).

Was able to compile the Broadcom wl driver for this kernel after moving the links in /lib/modules/3.9.0 to 3.9.0.0

This is on my laptop - pristine frugal install to ext4 formatted disk.

Cheers

You mean kernel source.. Must be a bug in my build script. I'll re-upload tomorrow.

Thanks for heads up. Strange that it let me compile nvidia driver! There was a curious error but it wasn't fatal.

EDIT: yes, I recall the nvidia error now, it couldn't find the modules.* files, that's because it was looking in 3.9.0 not 3.9.0.0.

The bug is that my kernel script can't handle 1 DOT kernel numbers (eg 3.9). I intentionally appended a .0 so it should have been 3.9.0, but somehow an extra .0 gets appended too. Guess I better find and fix that bug!

Once the fixed kernel source is up it should be fine.

Hmmm.. mine looks ok, also bootsysinit.log is ok. Confused

EDIT: yours looks ok too except for a couple of ACPI exceptions, but then seems to recover further down, with a few ACPI warnings only. Have you noticed any ACPI related problems?

The last 2 lines on screen just before it drops out to a "console" and hangs are:
Code:
acpid: exiting

peebee, acpi=off on the kernel line may help.

I'll wait until 3.9 matures a bit before doing another version, also it's likely I missed a new config line for your machine. (HP lappy?)

Kernel source is now re-uploaded

You done good. It's absence in the previous version caused me great grief. Posting from this new ThinSlacko version. Installed geany & firefox from ppm, removed lynkx (severely and with extreme prejudice), compiled an iconless jwm (with traditional arrow pointers) to test the devx. Did a remaster - the iso is 125 M now. So far so good. Runs like a hare on my trusted eeepc. Doesn't pant, holds the temp well and gives me much joy. One little annoyance, though. On startup, firefox says it isn't set as default. I did modify the content of the default (lynkx) browser script to show firefox. Something else needs to be done, it seems. Any ideas?

-updated 3.9 >> 3.9.1, added some more drivers, probably more obscure ones
-fixed probepart for f2fs
-AUFS now up to stable 3.9 branch
-compiled aufs-util 3.9 statically (much smaller, seems to work ok now).

Seems faster to me Confused (or maybe I'm just slower?)

ThinSlacko is becoming my favourite quick-and-dirty utility Puppy. And Links is good enough to install a printer.

What is the fastest way to get a Gutenprint package?

Can I make a suggestion? The old Legacy GRUB bootloader config doesn't have much value anymore because it can't recognize GRUB2 installs. I would recommend replacing it with Legacy GRUB Config 2013.

As Ray Charles introduced his backup singers Sharon & Karen (sharin' & carin')..

Take a Shot! - yet another screenshot utility..., tas for short - works very well in most newer pups.

previous ref in this thread, page 3 (10th post)

mmmm.. been having some fun with peebee's lxde sfs (yes it does spout a fair amount of err messages in xerrs.log) and it won't do a wmpoweroff or wmreboot from lxde/openbox for me (but fine in blackbox, e16, fluxbox, jwm and miwm). Full disclosure - I have butchered the sfs as a somewhat trimmed quasi-install, so Neutral

faster/slower is all relativity in the observers point of view Laughing

Has anyone managed to setup Firefox as default browser in ThinSlacko?

I have this line in xerrs.log:
Code:
(firefox:11403): GLib-GIO-WARNING **: Failed to execute child process "update-desktop-database" (No such file or directory)

And below is a weird symlink (link target 127.0.0.1:+11403) and an error window, that pops up if I click on it. Wonder, if it's related to my issue.

@`f00
You know how to share stuff.
Thank you very much.

@rcrsn51. Try searching PPM and you will be given 1 option for gutenprint. That's the one main slacko uses. I'll also consider your new grubconfig. Thanks.

@`foo. I think I am just slower!

@anikin. Sc0ttman's neat "defaults-chooser" fails in Thin because too much is removed and it chokes. You can do it manually :
Code:
echo "#!/bin/bash \nexec firefox \"\$@\"" > /usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser
chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser

Don't worry about that stale symlink, seems to do no harm and the error in xerrs.log is generated by the slackware doinst.sh (like a pinstall.sh) which is KDE specific and is absolutely harmless.

Hi Mick

Report of testing 5.5.04 on my HP laptop.....

Basically same problems as with 5.5.03 - lots of errors flash up on bootup but boots to a correctly dimensioned desktop where all is well until you try to reboot whence the reboot sequence drops out to a console where keystrokes are detected and displayed but no commands are recognised. Have to press power-off switch to get out.

Tried acpi=off on kernel line - this gets rid of the bootup error messages but boots to an incorrect dimensions desktop and trying other options through xorgwizard all fail to work. Reboot does not hang with the acpi=off switch in use.

The significant lines from bootkernel.log seem to be:

Hi 01micko,
Quote:
Seems faster to me (or maybe I'm just slower?)

I agree on both counts! A good example is that the slight delay upon launching PupSysinfo from PupControl 2.3 has vanished with this new kernel. I have tested with f2fs partitions on both SDHC and SSD.

My only issue has been with the old included version of frisbee (frisbee-1.0-20130228).
Using a wired connection with no wireless card present, it seems slow to acquire an I/P. Disabling the service only leads to more problems as restarting X can sometimes kill it and on boot up it sometimes completely fails to acquire an address.

BK posted here about later versions:
http://bkhome.org/blog2/?viewDetailed=00224

Edit-later (Having woken up properly)

With regard to Frisbee, I have a feeling that it is acquiring an I/P quickly, but is then releasing it only to then re-acquire it. This may well be desirable with wireless but is a PITA with a wired connection. If I am correct, it would explain the apparent slowness.
