So, what we're gonna do? I see 2 scenarios:
1. If there's a way to detect if aufs is built into vmlinuz (dunno how) it would be a matter to add an additional test for it.
2. Don't check for aufs at all (and additionaly remove all stuff related to unionfs, if we're sure the latter won't be used in the future).

Good catch!

Code:
zgrep 'AUFS_FS=y' /proc/config.gz

should do it but for some reason /proc/config.gz is not there Confused
/etc/modules/modules.builtin is another place to check but not as safe as /proc/config.gz.
Though option 2 might be better. Is a long time that puppy stopped using unionfs

Yes, I also noticed that /proc/config.gz is not present in k.3.4.x, but it is in 3.10.x.

Yeah, I would vote for 2 either, or eventually:
3. Check for unionfs and if not present, always assume aufs:
lsmod | grep '^unionfs' && unionfs || aufs
but I don't see a point TBH...

Greetings!

Let's opt for 1). The check is already done by initrd, this check should not be duplicated in every programs. To cater for full install, perhaps rc.sysinit could check too (because initrd isn't used in full install, innit?) and save the result, say, in PUPSTATE? In woof-next's initrd, aufs is assumed by default, except when overriden by "layerfs=unionfs" on kernel command line. So if you want to have a check, let's do that check (grep -q layerfs /proc/cmdline). You can of course go with /proc/config.gz test, but this assumes that CONFIG_IKCONFIG_PROC is set. Actually, on the second though, for stuff apps like these, what is their business detecting the layerfs system? They should only worry whether they're running on full install, ram layer, or direct savefile, shouldn't they? Then they should look at PUPMODE alone.

Loading sfs-on-the-fly is ok. But gets panic at next boot.

I also get kernel panic on reboot if I install any sfs - tried quite a few different ones.

This is a manual frugal install to a subdirectory with the sfs's in the subdirectory. The panic occurs with both the old savefile and the new savedirectory after reboot.

Error messages are the same as SFR's screenie below.

Also, think the removal of broadcom b43 wireless firmware (and others?) is a really retrograde step as it removes one of puppy's great strengths of wifi support OOTB - does the saving of a a few mb's in the iso size really matter these days????

Subject description: SFS kernel panic
 

Me too, here's the shot.

[later]
From what I've seen in init, loading the additional SFS files starts from /dev/loop4, so I think it's in conflict with this:
Code:
mount -r -t squashfs -o noatime /dev/loop4 /pup_z

Noticed the download size of Slacko-5.9.2.iso is smaller than Slacko-5.9.1.iso.

Slacko-5.9.2.iso --167M

Slacko-5.9.1.iso --174M

Anything important get left out?

Why is this so big?
Firmware. I may trim that substantially -done.

What firmware did you delete?

Hi Micko, I haven't downloaded 6 yet, but still using 5.7, I noticed that your Menu icons you included in 5.7 weren't changing all the icons when I tried the different ones included. So I spent a few hours and updated Bluemoon, it works with all the Desktop/menu icons and its now 21kb compressed smaller than before, its 88kb Smile

Jeff

PS the Yasis theme has /usr/local/lib/X11/themes/yasis/shutdown24.png it should be /usr/local/lib/X11/themes/yasis/shutdown48.png It doesn't change the menu shutdown icon unless its changed from 24 to 48 Smile

Manual frugal install to an 8gb sdhc card.

video-info-glx 1.5.1 Sun 22 Jun 2014 on Slacko Puppy 5.9.2 Linux 3.4.94 i686
5.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon HD 3200 Graphics
oem: ATI ATOMBIOS
product: RS780 01.00
X Server: Xorg Driver: radeon
X.Org version: 1.14.3
dimensions: 3840x1080 pixels (507x285 millimeters)
depth of root window: 24 planes
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.4
OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD RS780
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 9.1.7

AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 810 Processor
Core 0: @2592 1: @2592 2: @2592 3: @2592 MHz

I loaded the devx and used the zarfy.SlackBuild, then made a
package-zarfy-0.1.0.pet.
Unloaded the devx and rebooted because leaving it loaded creates a
kernel panic next bootup as others have reported.

Firefox runs as user spot now.

EDIT:
Here's the package-zarfy-0.1.0.pet if anyone else needs it, I copy /usr/bin/zarfy to /root/startup and it runs every bootup or whenever X is restarted to setup for 2 monitors.
EDIT:
I removed the package-zarfy-0.1.0.pet, the zarfy.SlackBuild worked for me but making it into a pet made an incomplete pet.

The zarfy.SlackBuild can be downloaded from here:

Hello!

Changing line 1651 of initrd_/init from
Code:
CNTLOOP=4 ; UMNTRO=""
to
Code:
CNTLOOP=5 ; UMNTRO=""
solves the problem with kernel panic for BOOTCONFIGged sfs-files. (At least for me ...)

Cheers Smile/ MHHP

Firstly .. wasn't on purpose of course. included wrong tarball Embarassed . I'll upload a new kernel package soon, which will have an identical set of modules but the missing firmware will be back.

Secondly... absolutely iso size is important! As James C can testify. this thing (well alpha) can run (crawl?) on an old coppermine and it is the reason i'm going no PAE. 64 bit will be a different story.

Conflict in init. If you want to keep testing use the old init attached.. expand initrd.gz and replace init. OR try MHHP's suggestion above this post.

No, but changes are not that big in devx so a rename is safe enough, but you need to roll back init as mentioned to use it. OR, try MHHP's suggestion above.

Thanks all.

Tested with devx, libreoffice, adrv (gimp sfs renamed) and ydrv (jre by shino sfs renamed) and it all works.

Yes, I hope that small change is all that is needed.

Before, /dev/loop4 got mounted on /pup_z and the first EXTRASFS got losetup'ed on /dev/loop4 and then mounted on /pup_ro4 ...

Cheers /MHHP
