Rebuild the kernel inside tahr puppy. The problem is a gcc mismatch and is exactly what I did with the first Lucid pup; just recompiled a quirky kernel with the exact same .config. Use kernel-kit from woof-CE. Then you won't have troubles building modules. You could probably even bump to the latest 3.10.x kernel with minimal trouble (or not, no guarantees Wink )

As for cups, use BK's wary package. It's older but reliable. It's version 1.4.8 IIRC.

Hello, 666philb.

Thanks for your hard work.
Does this Puppy have a pupsave capacity?

Best regards.

Hi 666philb

Looking good - frugal install booted AOK on my HP550 laptop with Intel graphics.

Frisbee and Broadcom WL established wifi no problems.

Did I test of dir2pet - seemed to work OK (although I didn't actually install the resulting pet) - what problems were you seeing?

01micko seems to have pointed the way to making this work perfectly - you may want to make your thread subject a bit more upbeat and positive to attract more testers....

I'd be happy to compile the wl driver for you for a different kernel if you can make the devx and kernel source sfs available.

Cheers & congrats on progress so far

Hi, 666philb and all!

Your tahrpup working fine here! (See pic.) No problem at all creating the pupsave file.

One may deplore the inclusion of the older abiword 2.8.6, but that's about it on the
negative side.

Except, if I may say so, the wallpapers offered are definitely ugly! Smile But it's very easy
to beautify your tahrpup:

http://www.itworld.com/operating-systems/409442/download-ubuntu-1404-trusty-tahr-wallpapers
has links to the ubuntu tahr's wallpaper contest.

I'll still be on the look-out for the problems you mentioned in your first post, but as far
as I can tell: very good work, 666philb! Congratulations! Very Happy

thanks for all the replys and for testing....
new iso,kernel-src & devx posted still some problems but seems a saner build

01micko i followed your advise and rebuit the kernel in tahr puppy, still neither the wl driver or amd will compile. The nvidia driver compiles fine and now doesn't kill sound and internet after rebooting which is good.
i installed the cups you suggested and cups now gets further however won't recognize my printer even after installing the hp drivers.

could other people see if printing works for them.

billtoo ... firefox works for me from the repo's ... qupzilla need libgstreamer-plugins-base1.0-0 will include it eventually

peebee... i still can't get the wl driver to compile hopefully you'll have more luck! .... but i noticed an odd thing, my netbook uses the wl driver and i was testing the new iso before i remastered it... and it showed a wlan interface and got online using the 'brcmsmac' driver. This loaded automatically before remastering, but didn't after. and loading it manually caused some odd effects... must conflict with something. still nice to know it works instead of wl.

and about the topic title... someone altered it after i posted!

ally .. perhaps you should wait on archiving them until they work properly Smile

musher... that abiword pet is just installed as a place holder .... if i can get this puppy working properly i'll include more upto date versions

AMD driver is a real bitch. I haven't done it in awhile but take a look at https://github.com/kolasa for patches. Also, if you search the Dpup-385 thread (pemasu) I did write an automated script to patch the AMD driver from the kolasa git repo and build a pet. It will be somewhat dated now.

As for broadcom wl, peebee has put the offer out there; take it.

Good luck!

New manual frugal install:

video-info-glx 1.5.3 Sat 31 May 2014 on TahrPup 5.8.0.7 Linux 3.12.2 i686

I installed kdegames,firefox,lxterminal,qupzilla, and others from PPM.
Firefox gives an error when it's started,kdegames isn't working giving
an error about dbus as well.
Dillo is working fine.

The jwm config is missing, resize savefile isn't working, and getflash
is missing.

I think this will be a great pup once you do any fixes that are
needed, many of the latest applications are available in PPM.

Thanks for your work.

Pretty good effort.

Code:
# report-video
VIDEO REPORT: TahrPup, version 5.8.0.7

Chip description:
VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RS780L [Radeon 3000]

Requested by /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
  Depth (bits, or planes):              24
  Modules requested to be loaded:       dbe
  Drivers requested to be loaded:       modesetting

Probing Xorg startup log file (/var/log/Xorg.0.log):
  Driver loaded (and currently in use): modesetting
  Loaded modules: dbe extmod fb glx kbd mouse shadow

Actual rendering on monitor:
  Resolution:  1366x768 pixels (361x203 millimeters)
  Depth:       24 planes

...the above also recorded in /tmp/report-video


Code:
# uname -r
3.12.2


Code:
# find /usr/lib/xorg -name radeon_drv.so
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.so
# ldd /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.so|grep -iE not
   libglamor.so.0 => not found


So libglamor is missing hampering radeon xorg driver. That's ok because modesetting driver works ok for unaccelerated. I notice vesa wasn't offered either, I didn't check for it's existence.

Sound and net work ootb for me on my main box.(dual core athlon X2, radeon 3000 onboard, 4GB RAM)

More as time permits.

LATER......

I did a quick and dirty remaster after cracking open libglamor0_0.6.0-0ubuntu4_i386.deb and moving /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/{libglamor.so.0,libglamor.so.0.0.0} into /usr/lib in the root of the unsquashed main sfs and resquashed. Booted the thing and got straight to desktop

Code:
# report-video
VIDEO REPORT: TahrPup, version 5.8.0.7

Chip description:
VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RS780L [Radeon 3000]

Requested by /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
  Resolution (widthxheight, in pixels): 1366x768
  Depth (bits, or planes):              24
  Modules requested to be loaded:       dbe

Probing Xorg startup log file (/var/log/Xorg.0.log):
  Driver loaded (and currently in use): ati
  Loaded modules: dbe dri2 exa extmod fb glx kbd mouse radeon ramdac

Actual rendering on monitor:
  Resolution:  1366x768 pixels (361x203 millimeters)
  Depth:       24 planes

...the above also recorded in /tmp/report-video

Shows ati driver loaded which is fine.. somwhere they switched those over the past couple of years. I think radeon just supports older (or is it newer?) cards now.

Code:
# glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh.  The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.015 FPS
# export vblank_mode=0
# glxgears
ATTENTION: default value of option vblank_mode overridden by environment.
4545 frames in 5.0 seconds = 908.376 FPS
4454 frames in 5.0 seconds = 890.785 FPS
4805 frames in 5.0 seconds = 960.823 FPS
4489 frames in 5.0 seconds = 897.798 FPS
4908 frames in 5.0 seconds = 981.490 FPS
4671 frames in 5.0 seconds = 934.146 FPS


Acceleration seems to work.. Nexuiz 2.5.2 works Smile
