Barry,

New forum member souliaq had trouble installing Puppy on a GPT drive, as reported here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=701303#701303

Karl asked for output from the appropriate commands, and based on souliaq's response I suggested a fix here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=704919#704919

souliaq has now verified that the suggestion worked: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=705357#705357

But I don't want a user to be able to change back to root without knowing the password.

It may be that you have set things up to run Puppy as fido as you may be letting a less-trusted person use your pup.

The less-trusted person will not know (root's and fido's) password.

I hope the following can convince you ...
console wrote:
# whoami
fido
# loginmanager
Sorry, try again.
Sorry, try again.
Sorry, try again.
sudo: 3 incorrect password attempts
#

... that without password it cannot be changed back to autologin as root.

Output is VGA

Running from CD with a USB CD setup that the board can handle. I used it to install Upup Precise 3831 (kernel 382 in my version) and it worked fine... of course the glibc in that version of Upup isn't new enough for jejy69's GNOME2.32 SFS... hence the desire to upgrade a little...

Sorry if I sound ticked off, I'm not -- just frustrated and disappointed. I was really hoping this would be working now. Oh well Sad


Anyone have any info on this? Is it specific to my machine and works elsewhere? Can it be fixed, in either case?

PostPosted: Sun 26 May 2013, 14:13    Post_subject: Firmware updates for analog modem drivers  

1. Corrected the HSF firmware initialization script to exit if the driver is not loaded, inadvertently dropped during recent changes to that test.

2. Updated the Agere firmware pinstall script for changed subdirectory name for the HDA modem driver (from 11c11040 to 1040hda).
Richard

UPDATE 5/27/2013: Thanks to peebee's report and pdiag file, I dug into the Agere-modem firmware pinstall scripts and found some deficiencies, the main one being that the new firmware did not get used, now all fixed, I believe. I corrected another problem: the config file that blacklists the ALSA-modem drivers could not be erased by pupdial, due to an inconsistency in conf file naming. Also, I made the config file that controls loading of the two modules of the driver, so that a modprobe of either would cause them to be loaded in the correct order. Testers, please try the drivers again, with this updated agrmodem firmware package.

PostPosted: Sun 26 May 2013, 14:31    Post_subject: Agere HDA modem driver  

To recombine the parts of the pet package if you do not already have it installed, download and install the splitpetjoin.pet package at this link:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=67464

In the download directory containing the parts, open a console and enter:
splitpetjoin (name of one of the "part" pets)

The driver is now installed into the 1040hda subdirectory under /lib/modules/3.2.44/agrmodem (instead of 11c11040). It requires the new version of the firmware_linux_module_agrmodem package attached to my previous message.

NOTE: I am unable to verify that these "agrsm" and HCF drivers actually work, so rely on users and testers to try whichever you have hardware for and report your results. TIA

This is in case some have already acquired the "key" to unlock full speed, or who can live with 14.4 kbs.

Hi Richard

Downloaded the Agere HDA driver for 11c1:1040

Loaded onto a pristine frugal install of Precise 5.6 and rebooted creating savefile

lsmod showed that agrmodem was loaded but agrserial was not and no sign of ttyAGS3

modprobe agrserial
then dmesg showed that ttyAGS3 had been created

however.....

modem-stats -c ATI3 /dev/ttyAGS3

killed Precise stone dead (it should make the modem display a short id string)

Difficult to send you diagnostics as the only way out of the crash was the poweroff button.

Looks like there are patches needed for this driver if it is to work on this kernel.....but not sure they exist....

Let me know if I can send any useful diagnostics - I'll pm you a pdiag after the initial reboot.

Cheers
peebee

Just a cheeky bump for my problem mentioned a couple of pages back - I can't create a savefile on hard disk regardless of boot media (usb or cd) and format chosen (ext2/3 etc), it just hangs on creating save message after exiting X.

No problems in this regard using any other Puppy I've tried.

Any suggestions most welcome Very Happy

Paul

Hi PaulR,
It may be:

a) A bad download of the ISO – you need to confirm the checksum.
Or
b) A bad burn. I suggest if a) is o/k, that using something like BurnAware, you burn it again at the slowest possible speed and ensure you turn on the verify option.

Thanks ETP - I've double checked (a) and that's ok. Wouldn't think (b) would apply as the same thing happens when I boot from USB (although that was made with the same ISO. I'll start over, download and burn another disk, see if the same happens.

Thanks for the suggestions,

Paul
