Prompts me to enter password.
Then gives :

Quote:

Segment violation
/root/.xlockrc: bad crypted password


Clicking the applet afterwords simply doesn't do anything. Must delete /root/.xlockrc to get the password prompt again, but then the situation repeats.


I can't reproduce.

1. Make sure you remove /root/.xlockrc
2. Try to run xlock directly (that is, in terminal, just type xlock).
3. Does it work?
4. If it does, continue, otherwise report.
5. remove /root/.xlockrc again
6. from terminal, type "echo ab12345678 | makekey". You should get a result of 78LSVeQGsxYPc.
7. If everything works, remove /root/.xlockrc again.
8. Then run xlock-gui from terminal.
9. Report.

Thanks.

Code:
launch_xlock() {
    #xlock -mode ${MODE:-random} $PARAMS
   /usr/bin/xlock -mode ${MODE:-random} $PARAMS
}
Did the trick. (xlock is ELF and shell)

Should be in PUPPYPIN
because it does not make very much sense to launch it from /usr/local/apps
I have it in /usr/bin and linked to Xlock/AppRun

Wink Tits JB, tits. Now sfs desktop's are in /usr/share/mimelnk/application, but they don't include categories.

Do I instead lose any extras from it's MimeType line >> application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.graphics for example?

The rt-clk menu's fine. It's the main menu that has the issue.



Thanks.

jamesbond,
at first, everything worked, except step 8, which gave me again
Quote:

Segment violation
/root/.xlockrc: bad crypted password


Then I removed .xlockrc and tried step 8 again - and it worked(except it complained can't find font... using fixed..), but it did lock the screen!
So, not sure what to make of it, but let's close this for now, I'll report if I hit this problem again.
Thanks!

And any chance we could get spot to execute wmexit without the password dialog? I can cheat if I have to..

I've gotta mention spots gtksu window *does NOT* consistently remember it's password.

Perhaps someone else experiences the same?

I'd prefer this user not to know roots pw.

@Semme: /usr/share/mimelnk/application/* are ignored.
Those multple entries in your screenshot comes from /usr/share/applications/libreoffice4.4-draw.desktop

@Semme: And any chance we could get spot to execute wmexit without the password dialog? I can cheat if I have to..

1. from terminal: chmod 0600 /etc/gtksudoer
2. edit /etc/gtksudoer and add a line at the bottom
spot spot /usr/bin/wmexit nopass

@all: it has been 3 weeks since 700 release and there have been few minor fixes since then. Do you reckon a 701 is necessary or useful? If released, 701 will only have fixes so far + perhaps new seamonkey/flash/openssl, that's it. No new kernel, etc.
The cons against releasing 701 is the effort probably needed to re-customise an existing 700 installation; if you already have a working 700 then why bother.

The Pros for releasing 701 is those that don't have a existing 700 installation , find is difficult to customise , security patch , fix audio and are waiting for Nvidia drivers that work , being a linux noob , need a working 700 to bother customising.

Very Happy Smile

The OpenSSL Project will repair a "high severity" security hole in updates due Thursday.


The patches have now been released.

openssl 1.0.2a is now in the repo.

Would it be difficult or awkward to add an easy update option for openssl to the control panel?

The code is undergoing an audit and they seem to think there will more regular updates and patches as they work through it.

Openssl package, unlike firefox and chrome and flash, does not provide binary packages. One has to download and compile the openssl source package, pack it into a txz binary and upload it to the repo; it is not automatic.

BAH! Sad

Shame Fatdog can't use standard slackware txz releases.

That would save a lot of time and work.

Who says so? You can try, although not guaranteed to work Wink The package format is definitely fully compatible. You can even point out gslapt at Slackware's repository and you should be able to view them and install them (again - workability after installing is not guaranteed).

We did consider to build Fatdog from Slackware base (search this forum for Slackbones and you will find the thread) - but in the end we decided that building everything from scratch means that we have better control over package dependencies etc. E.g. the mplayer package from Slackware depends on samba (samba is a 40MB+ download, mplayer itself is only half that size - so, seriously?!). If we use Slackware as the base, and we don't like this, we will have to build our own version of mplayer and make sure it gets chosen over the Slackcware's one when people install it from the package manager. Tough stuff. And that it just one package. It turns out that we may want to update/modify many of the Slackware packages (about half of them) so in the end may as well we go the whole nine yard and build them all from scratch.

The idea has merits, though, if you're willing to live within the parent distro limitations. But why Slackware? If you want to build a Fatdog derived from some other distro, may as well go for Debian/Devuan or Ubuntu (or Fedora); they have a lot more packages than Slackware.

I did wonder why you didn't use *.deb files but it make sense now you have explained.

... and I did wonder why nobody seems to have read Fatdog's home page.

It is some how hidden and can be launched choosing Help from right click menu.

Let us put it into razor menu, too!

Just another icon would be nice.
..and another label? Home and FAQ Question

Well now JB, until I get my own 64bit box, I'll have to take your word on that.

My neighbors son pulled the plug on the project, opting for a more Rolling Eyes impractical solution.

Hey, it's their money. Very Happy

The spot exit tip's a good one.. One I'll be able to employ for the next round of KIS installs.

Thanks for your time.

As for a re-packaged distro, I think not. Whatever corrected additions you've made should be easy enough for any of us running Fatdog to find and apply, provided they're possibly in a central location and in their own FD-700 updates repo folder perhaps.
