.

See attached pix.

Are the error messages normal, or am I doing something wrong?

DD Jessie Porteus boot save to folder on exit

It boots and works fine, but the error messages concern me.

Hi Ether,

It's not you doing something wrong, I see exactly the same,
Although I see only one error message from where you put the white arrows:

Code:
 cat: write error: invalid argument


I'm not really sure about it, I only know it has to do with writing /etc/fstab.
As DebianDog doesn't need to use fstab, it's empty at boot on purpose, so It's not a problem.

Anyway, thanks for reporting and I will investigate this further.

Looking at where you pointed the other arrows on your picture:
Showing multiple slashes you mean?
That doesn't make a difference IMO.

Fred

Hi Fred.
I think the cat error message is because line 390 trying to write to /etc/mtab (symlink to /proc/mounts). I get the same error (after removing /union/ from the path) trying this:
Code:
root@debian:~# cat > /etc/mtab << EOF #it is  /union/etc/mtab in the script (line 390)
> aufs / aufs rw 0 0
> proc /proc proc rw 0 0
> sysfs /sys sysfs rw 0 0
> devtmpfs /dev devtmpfs rw 0 0
> devpts /dev/pts devpts rw,mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
> EOF
cat: write error: Invalid argument
root@debian:~#

I guess we don't need this part of the script for DD but it is safe to ignore it and better not to mod initrd1.xz scripts more in my opinion.

Toni

New DebianDog-Jessie iso images uploaded here:
http://kazzascorner.com.au/saintless/DebianDog/DebianDog-Jessie/
First post links and information updated.

Changes and fixes list and information:

1. If you can't start X with OpenBox version remove /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
You can do it easy from command line typing:
Code:
rm -f /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

This file will be removed in next iso update.
The problem could appear with some Nvidia video cards, but it is recommended to remove this file if you use OpenBox-Jessie iso. More information read here.

2. DebianDog-installer included in the iso works only from DebianDog. Instead click here to download this DebianDog-installer and extract the archive - working from most linux systems to make frugal install to HDD or USB.
3. In OpenBox version the menu entry for lxrandr (Monitor settings) is missing. Read the fix here.
4. No way to turn back once entered the Help selection of the iso image boot menu. Needs reboot to exit. I will try to fix this before next iso update. Typing menu and pressing enter makes it appear but the Help menu will be removed for next iso update. The new menu will have 12 boot options. Read more here. DebianDog-installer will be changed the same way.
5. Some PC BIOS could suffer a little problem on reboot: the system freezes and you have to force shut down by pressing the PWR button. It is caused by some recent kernel versions and can be solved with reboot=bios boot parameter.
http://linux.koolsolutions.com/2009/08/04/howto-fix-linux-hangfreeze-during-reboots-and-restarts/
6. Uxterm in openbox version doesn't work without this fix.
7. initrd1.img for live-boot-2 needs adding .wh. function needed for remastercow to work with .wh. files. If you use remastercow .wh. function with live-boot-2 use this initd1.img to boot instead initrd1.img included in the iso (download with right click -> Save link as): initrd1.img-nopae, initrd1.img-pae.
8. New syslinux menu configuration will be added in next iso update. More information here.
9. Using live-boot and mounting squashfs modules located on NTFS and ext4 partition gives error message. More information here and in the next few posts. To fix this install this modded and upgradable after running apt-get upgrade command mount_2.26.2-6_i386-mod.deb
Or run in terminal:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install mount

10. Some scripts don't work in Jessie with full install, like filemnt and loadsfs-fuse. It's because of 'loop' is not loaded. Typing in terminal modprobe loop or adding loop in /etc/modules and reboot makes them work.
11. In OpenBox iso libegl1-mesa is version 10.4.2-2, official jessie version now is 10.3.2-1. Installing mpv (0.6.2-2) from jessie gives errors. The solution is downgrading libegl1-mesa to the official Jessie version:
Code:
apt-get install libegl1-mesa=10.3.2-1

12. Ejecting optical drive from desktop drive icon doesn't work. Install this pup-volume-monitor_0.1.15-2_i386.deb or run in terminal:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install pup-volume-monitor

13. apt-get upgrade
14. initrd1.xz with sdcard support.
15. Install debdoginstallscripts
16. Install jwm-obmenu for DD-Jwm version.
17. Initrd files and iso-data in archives here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=858839#858839
18. loadsfs-fuse fix:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=858954#858954
19. Remove change frisbee to sns option.
20. apt-get install xbacklight lxinputsave
21. Remove ktsuss and /opt/bin/ktsuss2
22. Install latest debdoginstallscripts_1.0.5_i386.deb; remaster-scripts_1.0.4_i386.deb with progressbar fixes.
22. Add gsu line in /usr/bin/ipinfo
23. For Jwm-Icewm version only - change icewm setup to read the files in /usr/share/icewm and /etc/X11/icewm instead from $home. Updating the menus from $home doesn't work properly in icewm from user account and it is the same in Debian Live. Remove icewm control center package because it works with $home files only. It is available in the repo if anyone likes to change the icewm setup and use icewm control center.
24. New portablesfs package:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=861337#861337
25. ClearRAM script and add "sleep 5" in debdog-install:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=862102#862102

Thanks a million for all your hard work on DebianDog, Toni

Lots of organizing and testing, surely I couldn't have done it the proper way you did, great job! Very Happy

This will install the script without locale and doc files.
Code:
sudo apt-cache search findnrun
findnrun-doc - findnrun 1.10.6 (documentation)
findnrun-nls - findnrun 1.10.6 (i18n)
findnrun - findnrun 1.10.6 (utility)

findnrun-doc includes documentation files.

Hi Toni, All,

*** Create-portable, for testing ***

Program (using yad GUI) to create a portable appimage or a self-extractable script from a directory containing the required binaries and libraries to run a single application.
I made this a while back for my own use, but didn't really finish, now put some more effort into it and added also the option to create self-extractable script (checkbox).
Thanks Toni, for pointing to the possibility of self-extractable script and the examples.
For more info run the script 'create-portable' and click the 'Info' button.
It has included the minimal required python binaries, scripts, libraries and xorriso etc.. (for create appimage) and also the makeself.sh script (for self-extractable script).

Download:

https://googledrive.com/host/0ByBgCDlZZ8K5bUsxVnhCTkhoZDA/DebianDog/Extra/create-portable.tar.gz
Extract and run 'create-portable', this script is created with makeself.sh

Again, it's for testing , any suggestions are very welcome!

Edit: Made small improvement for 'Portablelinuxapps mode' by adding more directories to LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PATH (e.g. opt/lib)
Still, using the 'Chroot mode' is more reliable, in case of a more advanced application.
Re-uploaded the archive including this change.
Edit2:
Re-uploaded with fix for yad (working also on Squeeze now) and added option to choose 'apt2portable' which is similar to 'apt2sfs' with the difference that it will create a portable script or appimage instead of a .squashfs module, see screenshot
https://googledrive.com/host/0ByBgCDlZZ8K5bUsxVnhCTkhoZDA/DebianDog/Extra/create-portable.tar.gz

Easy to be done: DebDog-Lumina-test.jpg
Unfortunately there is no 32-bit package for Jessie and the only way is mixing packages from stable, testing and unstable Debian to get Lumina working in DD-Jessie (which means partly broken package manager).
I will not upload such DebianDog version but if you like to try I can post the steps needed to get it working in DebianDog-Jessie.

Thanks Fred.

But it doesn't work in DD-Squeeze:
Code:
root@debian:~# create-portable
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing create-portable  100% 
yad: symbol lookup error: yad: undefined symbol: gtk_combo_box_text_new
root@debian:~# yad --version
0.19.1

Hi Toni,

I was working on a program today and wanted to check how I wrote C program chpupsocket but couldn't find it in smokey01 source archive. I think it would be good to include the source code there. I finally found the post in earlier Light DD wheezy thread so I've now attached chpupsocket.c source code below. The original thread post about it is here:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=755074#755074

I'm assuming this was the version of chpupsocket you finally used and not Fred's one which relied on a system() call.

William
