@bigpup,

Sorry no explanation.
But I noticed that on different puppies "free" shows different amounts of "Total Ram":
tahr_6.0.6 -> 3500784
xenialpup_7.0.8.1 -> 3492844
These are both running on the same hardware with 4G ram.
Being non-PAE kernels, they are around the expected value, but I would have thought they should be identical.

Hopefully there will be a PAE version of this kernel sometime.

PostPosted: Sun 23 Apr 2017, 23:20    Post subject: initmodules does not work  

Issue:
"initmodules" does not work properly.
1. The "init" script looks for the wrong filename for initmodules.txt
2. "initmodules" utility sometimes omits needed modules.

Solution:
1. Download http://www.fishprogs.software/puppy/xenialpup7081/initrd.gz and move it into the frugal install directory.
2. Download http://www.fishprogs.software/puppy/xenialpup7081/ydrv_xenialpup_7.0.8.1.sfs and move it into the frugal install directory.
3. Reboot.

Note: "initmodules" is run automatically at first boot.

Note2: These changes have been pushed to woof-ce 'testing'.

Is Xenialpup CE 7.0.8.1 a PAE OS?

I have used nvidia64-glx-304.131-k3.14.54-tahr.sfs in tarhpup64.

This driver seems to work really good on my old computer.

In Xenialpup, which nvidia driver would be equivalent to this?

No

You will need a Nvidia driver package specifically compiled for Xenialpup7.0.8.1
I do not think anyone has made any yet.

The Nvidia 304 driver had compiling issues. There is a patched driver run package.
Info here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=943907#943907
Xenialpup 7.0.8.1 needs the one for 4.9 kernel.

I suggest checking with Nvidia and see if a newer run package would work on your hardware.

Here is how you can use a driver run package.

Installing a Nvidia driver run package

Will need following items:
1.Nvidia driver run package
2.Puppy version DEVX SFS package
3.Puppy version kernel source SFS
4.Getnvidia program

Nvidia driver run package:
Download from official Nvidia web site.
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx
Get the specific Nvidia driver run package recomended for your hardware.
Make sure to get the bit version you need. (32bit or 64 bit)
Put the Nvidia run package in /mnt/home.


Puppy version DEVX SFS package and kernel source SFS package:
First try this in a terminal:
Code:
sfsget

If not listed for download, you will have to go to the specific Puppy version repository to get them.
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/
The DEVX SFS is usually where the Puppy version iso is located.
The kernel source SFS is in the Puppy version pet packages.

Getnividia:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=72405
Make sure to get the bit version you need. (32bit or 64 bit)

To use Getnvidia:
Well, install it.
Download the Nvidia run package, place in /mnt/home
Using SFS-Load-On-The-Fly program.
Load the devx and kernel source sfs packages.
Run Getnvidia.
It will walk you through the process.
Along with installing the driver. It also gives option to make a pet and or a sfs package of the driver.

Note:
The process of unpacking, compiling, and installing the driver needs free storage space and memory.
The Nvidia package is around 40 to 50 MB.
You need 3 times that space to run the process.
