My blue desktop theme. Both xenial and tahr pups have this really cool
feature of running scripts in the terminal with a single click. At the upper
right is my temps icon which is right clicked and mouse button held down
while selecting Run in Terminal. Then releasing the button causes hard drive
and cores temperatures to be displayed.

In the center is a icon for system information. Near lower left is my
freecell game icon suggesting both the hearts suit and my love of the
game:)

PostPosted: Mon 02 Oct 2017, 16:42    Post subject: RAM not recognized  

Greetings,
I'm fairly positive this is not a Xenialpup64 problem...but wanted input from this group just in case...
My old, trusty Toshiba Satellite bid farewell yesterday and I'm now up and running on a slightly newer HP Pavilion G6.

First problem is that this machine will not boot XP64 from a CD. The system does not have UEFI boot capabilities so maybe this is the issue. Booting frugal from a flash drive is working fine...curious if anyone has thoughts on how to get the system to boot from a CD in my case.

2nd issue is more problematic. Although my BIOS reports a full boat of RAM (8Gb) XP64 is only seeing 4Gb. (Htop says 3.42, Conky reports 3.35). It's almost as if I'm on a 32 bit processor without PAE but this is a 64 bit machine...albeit an early version without UEFI support. I'd really like to get the other 4Gb of RAM recognized...any thoughts?

As always, a big thanks ahead of time...

I'm running Xenialpup64 7.0.8.5
CD was burned as iso at a write speed of 4.0. CD worked fine on prior computer. Absolutely nothing happens when trying to boot from the CD: System will post and then I get a blinking cursor in the corner and have to hard power off. Mint CD and others I have will boot fine. Maybe this CD has developed an issue coincidentally.

RAM issue was apparently a bad module. Even though BIOS saw it, none of my installed Linux OSes (Salix, Devuan, Mint 17.3) could recognize it. I put in a different (smaller) stick and it is being recognized).

FWIW:
I install Linux Mint (without systemd) on recent Windows refugee computers to try and make the world a better place....I've found that I'm not a fan of HP computers when it comes to getting Linux working on them...not only do they generally have AMD and Radeon issues, I often have other weird things to deal with...this one will not keep Puppy sound settings between sessions (savefile). This HP is only a stop gap until I can get a decent machine that likes me.

I don't think the UEFI is the problem: see my hard drive files at the bottom of this post.
My computer is an ordinary Dell E6410, no UEFI.
Would you try making a hard drive directory, and copy those files into it? That is, open the iso (I have xenialpup64-7.0.8.5-uefi.iso ) eg by clicking in roxfiler, and copy the essental files. Then do grub4dosconfig.

Sorry, I hope someone else can help with the CD.

Code:

Exactly what version of Xenialpup64?
Was the Xenialpup64 iso burned as a iso image?
When you look on the CD it has a bunch of files, not the iso.
Burned at a speed no higher than 8?
Sure the CD burner is working OK?
Sure the CD drive is working OK?

When it tries to boot, you see what?
Details????

Again, what exact version of Xenialpup64?

In a console type:
Code:
free

What does it report?

I've been having problems with the hotkeys not working on my lenovo x230 (2325)

after much digging about I have found a workaround which fixes the volume and brightness keys but not the sleep

add the following to the kernel parameters:

Code:
acpi_osi="!Windows 2012"

PostPosted: Thu 26 Oct 2017, 08:28    Post subject: is this project completely or permanently abandoned??  

I looked through this thread and did not see it. So, am trying to understand why no one is posting about it and/or pointing to what they did. Is this project permanently abandoned or what? Crying or Very sad

I'm referring to the serious WPA2 KRACK attack problems. Peebee had his 32-bit updated/patched days ago, yet this 64-bit Xenial thread still sits bare & unresponsive (but yet Phil posts recently over there in Peebee's 32-bit threads...huh????)?

[b]Please, Phil, can you say if Xenial64 is ABANDONED or not[/b]. Confused Peebee is not doing 64-bit stuff yet, but jeez I hope so soon. Thus, our options for ubuntu-based pup-oriented 64-bit are very slim pickings here.


I am trying to compile/make the fixes for KRACK from here:
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/wpa/2.4-0ubuntu6.2, but am not having luck so far. Also gave this a go: thought maybe I could just open PPM, and get the updated fixes from Ubuntu itself, but all that seemed to do was drag the exact same copies of wpa_supplicant & hostapd that Phil's Xenial had in the first place on my machine. I checked--- the dates and version from PPM does not match up to the KRACK fix date & version that have been pushed out by the Ubuntu repostitory---been pushed out for over 8 days now. So, apparrently, no luck there either.


Please, please, Peebee, can you maybe ditch one of the projects you're doing and pick up the 64-bit world? So we can get away from this seemingly abandoned stuff where we're left in the dark as to its "status"? It's not just the ease of Netflix, but many other programs that just do not run right in 32-bit world without jumping thru constant, ennervating hoops. Thanks for any consideration.



P.S. If anyone gets the wpa2 KRACK fixes up and working in their Xenialpup64, would appreciate any help and/or possibly an upload or .pet. Thank you much.

Hi belham2. I do not use wifi with my laptop. But I found this link:

https://usn.ubuntu.com/usn/usn-3455-1/

I think it can help. At:

https://packages.ubuntu.com/

The packages hostapd and wpasupplicant are already patched. I think that if you update lists of packages in your xenialpup64 then you can reinstall them in the patched version. They are still named as before but they are patched.

I heard recently that another update to Xenialpup64 will be built. I think the devx in 7.0.8.5 had a problem or maybe it was just me or a one-off. I would be nice if the version number in woof-CE would be in-sync with the latest iso when 7.0.8.6 or whatever it will be named comes out so others can build it too, but I think 7.0.8.5 was more of a "test" or "alpha" release or something, as mavrothal hinted at here. Maybe whatever issues it had are fixed in Woof-CE now.

PostPosted: Thu 26 Oct 2017, 11:22    Post subject: New Version  

Although not mentioned in the forum here, there is a new version at-

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/test/xenialpup/

xenialpup64-7.0.8.6.iso 2017-Oct-25 07:06:59 322M application/octet-stream
xenialpup64-7.0.8.6.iso.md5.txt 2017-Oct-25 07:06:59 0.1K text/plain

I upgraded my 7.0.8.5 version with it and for sure it's an upgrade as my kernel now lists as a 4.9.58 and all is working very nice so far!

What else was upgraded, I have no idea... strange phil didn't say something here about it???

xenialpup64 still seems a little eager to use the swap file, or maybe i just need to buy more ram.

i'll be updating xenialpup32, tahrpup64 & tahrpup32 in the coming weeks .. probably in that order and baring any big problems with this beta it'll become the 7.0.9 release.

link on first page

enjoy

Good to see you back, Phil. 7.0.8.6 makes a good thing even better Smile
We've been using 7.0.8.5 here daily. It's my all-time favorite pup.
