Bug report:

An intermittent issue present in this version and also in previous versions is a hang
at boot time with the message "Recognising media devices.....optical". Only a hard reboot
fixes the issue which I would say occurs about 5 to 10% of the time.

The text comes from the block of code starting at line 566 in rc.sysinit and my gut feeling
is that it is some kind of timing issue.


Yes, I have also had this problem. It has been going on for years, overdue to do something about it!

Looking at the code in rc.sysinit, there is only one line that could possibly hang:

Code:
[ "$DVDTYPE" ] && hdparm -d1 /dev/$DVDTYPE >/dev/null 2>&1


So, have commented it out.

Certainly an issue but maybe a bug:

The set volume level is not preserved across reboots but always defaults to zero.
The config files seem to imply that it can be set but the mechanism to do so is
not working. Manually editing them also has no effect.

The included version of PNMixer (0.5.1) appears to date from 2011/12 and there have
been multiple releases since then. The latest version (0.7) was released on 18th Sept 2016.
Perhaps that has addressed this issue.

EDIT 20th January 2017:
I note that pnmixer-0.6.1-1 is available in QPM


Have gone back to pizzasgood's retrovol.

rm: cannot remove '/var/local/lib': Directory not empty
rm: cannot remove '/var/local/pupdial': Directory not empty



I plan to do some testing of the frugal install, I have neglected it.

Anyway, that failed "mv" is fixed.

Fixed.

Yes, yad is missing from Quirky 8.1.6.
I left it out because the Ubuntu yad DEB is for gtk+3, and when I tried to compile it, got a compile fail.

Today I downloaded the latest, 0.39, and it compiled ok, so that is going into the next build.

(put a "#" in front of each and every one of these lines, so the init script will ignore them).


This "fix" is a problem for me, as there is nothing apparently wrong with that code.

In fact, it is required, if there is going to be a choice of using aufs or overlay.
/proc/filesystems shows what filesystems the kernel supports.

I am wondering if there has been some confusion of the two. Maybe aufs used when creating the savefile, then at bootup it wants to use overlay. Which I don't see as a problem anyway.

I can't recall when I was using aufs. The kernel in Xerus x86_64 8.1.6
only has overlay. So, that code will always generate "LAYERFS=overlay", which is fine.

Well, I am going to compile a kernel, maybe 4.12.x, and again, will not have aufs in it. I will do testing of frugal and savefile, make sure it works.

Major progress. I am not surprised that you had trouble with live-CD and frugal saved-session, etc.

I found one bug, in the 'init' script in the initramfs, when booting from live-CD. The path was wrong when using overlay filesystem instead of aufs.

But then I hit a major show-stopper. I discovered that overlay filesystem is broken. This is for a simple two-layer, /dev/zram0 on read-write layer (with ext2 f.s.) and q.sfs on bottom read-only layer.
A simple "rm -rf foldername" fails.

I reported this on my blog. Googled and found this to be a problem with overlay for years, put one link into my post:
http://barryk.org/news/?viewDetailed=00591

Aaaargggghhh! The kernel in Quirky Xerus64 8.1.6 has a broken overlayfs!

I have recompiled the 4.11.9 kernel patched for aufs, and now the live-CD/frugal save-session works perfectly. Those errors you have reported at bootup have disappeared. "rm" now works.

I got lulled, thinking that overlay is now mature. But it, and btrfs, should be moved out to "staging"!

There are more tests to do, hope to have 8.2-RC (or a beta) out soon.

Hi,

I am still downloading.
I told you that xine was the best Smile Why nobody listens to me ? LOL.

Is this corrected this in ppm ?
Code:

/usr/local/petget/installpreview.sh: line 101: [: 13757: unary operator expected
 if [ $SIZEVALx2 -ge $SIZEFREEK ];then

/usr/local/petget/installpreview.sh: line 311: [: 25350: unary operator expected
[ $testSIZEK -gt $SIZEFREEK ]


- /etc/xdg/templates/_root_.jwmrc
has too many obsolete entries like : Gaim xmms

Cheers

A new version! About time too! Very Happy

I have uploaded Quirky Xerus 8.1.94, for PCs with 64-bit CPUs.
This is a beta release, the final will be 8.2.

At this stage, I can't find any fault with it, but I am sure issues will be found.

Lots of updates and bug fixes. But the biggest fix is dumping of overlay filesystem and return to aufs.

Here is my blog announcement:

http://barryk.org/news/?viewDetailed=00593

Testers invited, feedback is welcome!

And one question: is there still interest in a 32-bit build?

Thanks for this, Mr. Kauler. Downloading now.

In answer to your question:
I, for one, would be interested in a 32-bit build.
TIA.

Hello, Mr. Kauler.

I was unsuccessful booting from a directory on sda1. Various infos follow.
IHTH.

Best regards.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you can make sense of the following snapshots. The main thing
seems to be that the boot process cannot find /sbin/init, which provokes
a kernel panic.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is the tree of the directory it's in:

The q.sfs file being at /initrd/mnt/dev_save/q.sfs,
but the result was the same with the q.sfs file inside the
/initrd/mnt/dev_save/xerus64Quirky-8.1.94 folder.

I had no problem to boot.
Can you describe the exact steps of your installation ?
Is it full or frugal ?
To hard disk or usb stick ?
What commands or steps did you use to install ?
Cheers

Wow, Barry (are we still allowed to say "wow" on murga---haha Very Happy ) I know I've only been using your creations since the first Precise-5.7 came out some years ago, but out of everything you've done up-to-date, I believe this Quirky is hands down the most beautiful-themed/icon/colours of any of your creations. Add in the fact that "frugal" installing it worked right away, recognizing my dual monitors, and stuff I added like qupzilla, redshift-gui, tas, conkytoggle-switch, iqpuzzle and also the stuff added from PPM (PPM has worked great so far) like qiv (for conky transparency), sakura terminal, and dreamchess....well, I think I am in love again with Quirky. Smile Congrats!

Will keep testing this the next few weeks----so far, I can't find a thing wrong with it & that's saying something as I usually crashed all the previous Quirky/Werewolfs/etc by now. Wink
