I copied a manual frugal install of Slacko 5.7.0 along with a manual frugal
install of Slacko64 5.8.8 to a 64gb class 10 SDXC card, pc is a Macmini.
The card is formatted ext4 and using grub4dos 1.9.1
Both are using openbox + lxpanel.
Both are working well.
Thanks for both Smile

Hello,

I am testing Slacko 5.7 in Asus EEPC 1201HA

Problems until now:
- no / wrong mouse cursor ( interesting that if I take a screen shot mouse cursor apear correct in pic )

- lower part of screen sometime flicker; seen with external monitor 1280x1024

Code:
video-info-glx 1.5.1 Thu 19 Jun 2014 on Slacko Puppy 5.7  Linux 3.4.82 i686
  2.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation System Controller Hub (SCH Poulsbo) Graphics Controller (rev 07) 
  oem: Intel(r)Poulsbo Graphics Chip Accelerated VGA BIOS
  product: Intel(r)Poulsbo Graphics Controller Hardware Version 0.0

X Server: Xorg   Driver: modesetting
X.Org version: 1.12.4
  dimensions:    1280x1024 pixels (361x270 millimeters)
  depth of root window:    24 planes

direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.4
OpenGL vendor string: VMware, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x300)
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 8.0.4

 Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU Z520   @ 1.33GHz

...the above also recorded at '/tmp/root/video-info-glx'.


Code:
  Video-Info 1.5.1 - Thu 19 Jun 2014 on Slacko Puppy 5.7 - Linux 3.4.82 i686
   
  Chip description:
    2.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation System Controller Hub (SCH Poulsbo) Graphics Controller (rev 07) 
    oem: Intel(r)Poulsbo Graphics Chip Accelerated VGA BIOS
    product: Intel(r)Poulsbo Graphics Controller Hardware Version 0.0
   
  X Server: Xorg  Driver used: modesetting
  X.Org version: 1.12.4
    dimensions:    1280x1024 pixels (361x270 millimeters)
    depth of root window:    24 planes


Any idea if/how can be fixed ?

thank you

edit:

I fixed cursor with help from here:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/poulsbo

replaced section Device with this section
Code:

 Section "Device"
    Identifier "gma500_gfx"
    Driver     "modesetting"
    Option     "SWCursor"       "ON"
 EndSection


problem with screen flickering remain, maybe it is possible to replace screen driver with one from Precise 5.7.1. that one it's working fine or it is a kernel problem ?

James C, did you have to do anything to make that combination work, *other* than install the SFS and reboot? (Er, I assume a reboot is still necessary in P570...?)

If there's not much to it, I *will* try it -- I've loved GNOME2 since my first day tinkering with Linux (Ubuntu 7.04 Embarassed great looks, not so hot on the functionality tho) and I know that MATE is a fork/continuation of GNOME2. XFCE is not a bad imitation -- but fake is fake, you know?

No reboot necessary.

Loaded the sfs,exited to prompt and entered "xwin mate-session" (without the quotes) and it's alive. Smile

With Sfs-load-on-the-fly it's too easy.

Nice Smile so SFS-Load On-The-Fly is the new BootManager, sorta. Hmm. Interesting... I remember when SFS-Load OTF was an /alternative/ to BootManager's SFS tab, and IIRC users were cautioned not to use it for something like this. That actually wasn't that long ago -- how far we've come, and how fast...

Meh. I'm excited now Surprised Trying Slacko 57 + MATE in a little bit, soon as it downloads. This should be fun Very Happy
