Hi Fred !

Me once again .....
Quote:
Yes, you must save the session and after reboot you can uninstall the older kernel if you want.



How to? Removing the old one ?Is this correct ?:

apt-get purge linux-image-4.4.0-112-generic linux-image-extra-4.4.0-59-generic

Can it be done also with Bleachbit ?

Thanks rcrsn51 for the Advice !

You should check that /var/tmp has 777 permissions. Some printer drivers use it and CUPS can be fussy about permissions.


Ah, thanks, correct me if I'm wrong, so permissions should be this:
Code:
root@live:~# ls -l /var | grep tmp
drwxrwxrwt  2 root root    60 jan 24 16:44 tmp

Removing:
Code:
rm -fr /var/tmp

Then recreate with the 777 permissions
Code:
mkdir -m 1777 /var/tmp

And:
Code:
root@live:~# ls -l /var | grep tmp
drwxrwxrwt  2 root root    60 jan 24 16:46 tmp


@backi edited my post above adding the correct mkdir command (-m 1777)

No, both should be 4.4.0-59 to be removed, so (after reboot check conky or "uname -a" if the new kernel 4.4.0-112 is in use)
Code:
apt-get purge linux-image-4.4.0-59-generic linux-image-extra-4.4.0-59-generic


EDIT: Not sure, but I don't think bleachbit can do it.

Hi Fred,
I tried your code

Code:
ls -l  /mnt/sdb1//17xendog/


Then I thought there was an extra back-slash(/) so I tried this

Code:
ls -l  /mnt/sdb1/17xendog/


When that did not work I used the path to casper I get if I click through to it from sdb1 ie

Code:
ls -1 /mnt/live/mnt/sdb1/17xendog/casper


The output from them all is shown below

Code:
root@xenial:~# ls -l  /mnt/sdb1//17xendog/
ls: cannot access '/mnt/sdb1//17xendog/': No such file or directory
root@xenial:~# ls -l  /mnt/sdb1/17xendog/
ls: cannot access '/mnt/sdb1/17xendog/': No such file or directory
root@xenial:~# ls -1 /mnt/live/mnt/sdb1/17xendog/casper
01-filesystem.squashfs
base
changes.dat
initrd1.xz
modules
optional
rootcopy
vmlinuz
xenial-i486.sgn
root@xenial:~#


Can I use the last path to upgrade the kernel?

Regards,

Ken.

Hi Ken.

That explains it, it happens in some cases that the mountpoint of the frugal install folder changes to that.
Thanks for the info, this is a bug, I'll work on new version of upgrade-kernel to make it work somehow with /mnt/live/mnt/....., will get back later about it.

Fred

Hi Fred !
Hope i do not become to annoying .

But there is some strange Effect .The mystery of the non existing /var/temp Folder in my Xenial Dog System......becomes even more mysterious .

mkdir -m 1777 /var/tmp during Session did create such a Folder.
But ......saving Session .....after Reboot .....looked into /var.....but no such Folder
/var/tmp to find . Did several Trials .
Despite creating /var/tmp and saving Session it did not survive after Reboot .
What about this ?????

Tried to change Permissions of Folder /var with PcmanFm .
Could not change all Permission to Anyone .

Pcmanfm on Folder var >Properties>Access Control>Permissions>change content to Anyone .

The files operation was completed with errors

Changing attributes of files : var

Errors occured :
lectured: Cannot set permissions on symlinks
run: Cannot set permissions on symlinks
rsyslog: Cannot set permissions on symlinks
icons: Cannot set permissions on symlinks

So this is probably why i am not being able to create /var/tmp permanently .

Hi backi, no problem Smile

I see that /var/tmp is excluded from saving (for save-on-exit, in /usr/bin/snapmergepuppy, as well as other tmp folders are also excluded)
Maybe you did a remaster earlier ? and something weird happened (as I said, /var/tmp should be part of the base filesystem).
Can you look in /mnt/live/memory/images/01-filesystem.squashfs/var/ if you find tmp folder or maybe a .wh.tmp file, or in some other directory (mounted SFS maybe ? in /mnt/live/memory/images/..../var/
Just guessing though, I never experienced something like that.
Depends on what you find to think for me about how to fix the problem.

@Ken, can you try new version of upgrade-kernel ? Should be fixed now.
Install v1.0.2 from Synaptic or with apt-get:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install upgrade-kernel  # will install 1.0.2


EDIT: @backi, another shot in the dark, also look in /mnt/live/memory/images/changes-exit/var/ if there's a .wh.tmp file, if there is, delete it and do anyway (this may fix the problem):
Code:
mkdir -m 1777 /mnt/live/memory/images/changes-exit/var/tmp

Reboot and check if /var/tmp exists

Fred

PostPosted: Tue 13 Feb 2018, 17:05    Post subject: BionicDog preview
Subject description: BionicDog, new alpha version
 

(added some new features and upgraded all packages)
*** BionicDog Preview (Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver development) ***

Hi Everyone,

New Alpha version , "Bionic Beaver" development stage.
Changes: Added "Desktop Manager" (similar as in Xenialdog) with choices:
- Openbox with rox-pinboard Desktop (bottom panel: tint2)
- Openbox with tint2 panels
- Openbox with pcmanfm providing the Desktop and LxPanel (bottom panel)

Fixed: loading encrypted savefile (previously didn't work)
Added: package: firefox-apulse, custom firefox package included, using apulse for support playing audio.

Code:
root@live:~# cat /etc/issue
Ubuntu Bionic Beaver (development branch) \n \l


Login details:
root with password root (default automatic login)
puppy with password puppy

Specifications:
Built from an absolute minimal Ubuntu by using debootstrap.
Kernel: 4.14
Choice of Boot Methods: porteus-boot only , see options at the XenialDog Wiki Porteus-Boot
Default WM - OpenBox with Desktop choices (see above)
Default File Manager - pcmanfm with option to use rox.
Default Internet Browser - Firefox. (there is launcher for "firefox" running apulse, so audio works without pulseaudio installed)
Applications included: gnome-mplayer, mpv, abiword, pburn, pfind, gparted, synaptic, leafpad, quick-remaster, dogradio, peasywifi, wex and much more (almost as full featured as XenialDog)
TODO's: Testing.... testing..., upgrade packages (there will be many available during next months), and add more packages to custom repos (e.g. apps that rcrsn51 made for StretchDog (need to test first) )

After having so much success using XenialDog as the basis for a ZoneMinder CCTV NVR system... I am downloading and preparing to give this BionicDog a test run by using a zoneminder install script that works without error on XenialDog and see if with small modification it will give the same good results with this new OS......

test will be with the BionicDog32-alpha-2018-02-13.iso to begin with... LAMP and ZoneMinder with some bells and whistles will be installed.

Hello Fred,
I too have installed bionic dog. I thought it would overcome the problem I had of not being able to update the kernel in xenial dog. All seems to be working that I've tried so far. As you might remember I was trying to run gqrx a sdr program. I had trouble last time installing whats shown bellow except for the last line.

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:bladerf/bladerf
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ettusresearch/uhd
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:myriadrf/drivers
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:myriadrf/gnuradio
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:gqrx/gqrx-sdr
sudo apt-get update


Your suggestion was to miss out the -y as shown in the reply you gave here.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=979046#979046

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bladerf/bladerf
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ettusresearch/uhd
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:myriadrf/drivers
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:myriadrf/gnuradio
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gqrx/gqrx-sdr
sudo apt-get update


This worked the last time but does not seem to work now.

Quote:
For info, to install the official add-apt-repository, do in terminal:

Code:
apt-get install software-properties-common



But then you need to remove the included to make the official have prority:
rm -f /usr/local/bin/add-apt-repository


Have you any other suggestions as to how I could install these add-apt repositories other than the above?

Regards,

Ken.

0 upgraded, 53 newly installed, 0 to remove and 26 not upgraded.
Need to get 18.3 MB of archives.
After this operation, 75.7 MB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n]


EDIT: The add-apt-repository script included in BionicDog needed a small fix, see attached, extract and replace in /usr/local/bin/.
The default is bionic now, but as I said, some ppa's are not supporting bionic yet.
To add repo for e.g. artful (I wouldn't recommend though), just add it to the command, e.g:
Code:
add-apt-repository ppa:user/ppa-name artful

To find the webpage for a ppa, just google for example "ppa:rvm/smplayer"
(to check if it supports bionic, the smplayer ppa does, btw)
EDIT2: Forgot almost to mention, to make add-apt-repository work it's required to have package "dirmngr" installed:
Code:
apt-get install dirmngr

Hi Fred,
Thanks again for the information and the explanation. I have got gqrx installed and it is working but the site recommends the installation of the repositories I listed. I'll try your suggestions and report back. I hope to migrate from xenial to bionic. I'll try and do some general testing as well. First thing to report is I think peasy wifi is an improvement. Easy to use and worked first time (though I've got some previous experience of using it).

Regards,

Ken.

Could be that the ppa repo's had the latest version packages at the time of recommendation, anyway, I think now the standard bionic repo has the latest packages.
