Sub_title: Greetings to Mr. Ing. Barry K.
 

Greetings to Mr. Ing. Barry K.!
Thank you very much!
Please,
do publish the latest version
of SNS Network manager
(from Slacko 5.7), because
your SNS Network Manager is
the best. It is much better than
Windows WIFI managers,
much better than WICD, Frisbee,
and all others. The SNS Network is unike
that never interrupt Wifi internet connection!
We hope that we could be able
to download it.
Thanks in advance!

I am having sudden problems with the camera in LH64-602b and Precise 5.7.1

I have even tried Chromium with a current version of Flash to no joy.

LH74 is on a HP Pavilion g7 laptop & was working fine then stopped after Firefox 28 update (Flash was updated to try to solve the problem). I can see the other people's cams via [url]VideoControlPanel.net[/url] but mine doesn't show up.

Then I tried a fresh install of Precise on a MSI Netbook w/Chromium 32 which appears to work OK, Testing earlier I could see the other person's cam via [url]VideoControlPanel.net[/url] but mine doesn't show up.

No idea what might be in common between the two.

I'm not sure where to start looking for a solution.

Any reason to believe that Slacko with Chromium (they are asking me to try Chrome rather than a Mozilla product with the idea that something in Mozilla is the cause).

WDYT?

Thanks!

PostPosted: Fri 01 Aug 2014, 05:13    Post_subject: rox  

hi!

in precise 5.5 (IRC in older versions too) rox iconified windows works,

in wheezy35xx, precise 5.7, tahr 5.8 (and newer?) don't work at least for me.

how to reprod:

right click on any item, options, pinboard, iconified windows, show iconified windows, check in.

in precise 5.5, after minimalizing a window it puts an icon to my desktop, in precise 5.7.1 (and newer) it does nothing.

both uses rox 2.11,

pidgin has not pidgin.pc file for pkg. When trying to ./configure pidgin-OTR
(https://otr.cypherpunks.ca/#downloads) I get:

Quote:
checking for EXTRA... configure: error: Package requirements
(glib-2.0 >= 2.6 gtk+-2.0 >= 2.6 pidgin >= 2.0 purple >= 2.0) were not met:

No package 'pidgin' found
No package 'purple' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables EXTRA_CFLAGS
and EXTRA_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
The file pidgin.pc also seems not to be on the system.

testers wanted Exclamation

Forum member gyro developed a new approach so puppy can use a savedirectory on an ext2/3/4 partition.
So I made a delta file that will update precise-5.7.1 to 5.7.2 and will include the new feature and some extras.

If you would like to test the new savefolder feature on precise, check here for more info and downloads

Was the stick ext2/3/4 formatted?
Savefolder will not be created on a VFAT stick.
However, the traditional puppy savefile is created without a problem on a vfat-formated USB stick (at least at my end when booting from the precise-5.7.2.iso)

I had problems at times with ext4 formatted USB sticks (particularly older kingstone). You may want to try another stick or try to remove the journal from the ext4 with
Code:
tune2fs -O ^has_journal /dev/sdb1 #or wherever your stick is mounted - check with 'df'

It is actually the recommended formatting for USB sticks in Linux.

BTW I also tried an ext4 stick and worked fine.

I tested a pristine frugal install in a sub-folder - all proceeded OK until I tried to use sfs-load-on-the-fly when none of the sfs files inside the sub-folder could be detected. Tested prior to savefolder creation and post reboot and savefolder creation.

As an aside - it would be nice if "rfkill unblock wifi" could be added to the bootup code to remove a "bug" in 5.7.1 where some wifi (broadcom?) is soft blocked on boot. This is a "bug" only present in 5.7.1

Cheers & thanks
peebee

Good catch. sfs_load looks for pup_rw/pup_ro1 to determine the subfolder.
Since this savefolder implementation does not have pup_rw it can not find the boot sub-folder.

Edit: Install sfs_load-2.3 or latter hat is savefolder-aware
