Mochi, you make a good point and after looking at the jwmrx-personal and personal2 files, it explains why certain applications have certain keys that do not behave correctly.
Then I don't understand why you want this crappy F12 assignment back in. What's wrong with the existing Alt+F1? Who came up with the idea of an additional shortcut? Can't have been BK Laughing

If I knew Alt-F1 was another option to do the same thing; then I could care less about the F12. Either way, I'm sure you can program out the F12 key; just like I can re-add. Makes no diff to me.

If I can get to the menu without a mouse; I'm good. Probably a band-aid on the bigger problem of occasional mouse freeze, anyway. Found a script that resets the mouse; so at least in theory if I can get to the menu entry for the reset --- the mouse should be back in the house....

Subject description: Booting from a CD
 

Hello, greetings from Central America.

- My CD Optical Device is ok, I have tested others distros of puppy without problems.
- MD5SUM Ok
- My BIOS is configured correctly, no security boot is on. CD boot sequence in 1st place.

-I´m a little new solving problems, my goal is run Xerus64-8.4 from a CD or USB, using the ISO file, and then use Puppy Installer to install the system in a EXT4 formated USB.

Some information about my PC:

Product Name: OptiPlex 740
BIOS Version: 2.2.5 Dell
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+
Total RAM: 2908 MB

Thanks, in advance.

Maybe not enough RAM.

I made a frugal install of the previous version, Quirky Xerus 8.3, to a couple computers and all have at least 4096 MB RAM.

Hi

I booted from an older xersu64 dvd that I had and did the following:

I installed to a SDHC card on my Acer Revo which has about 2gb ram,
have used the same method to install to flash drives.
I downloaded the iso and easydd and put them in a hold directory,
opened a terminal in the hold directory and did "sh easydd
xerus64-8.4-8gb.img.gz" no quotes.

Plug in your flash drive and when the script starts it will prompt you
which drive to install to.

System: Host: QUIRKYPC11420 Kernel: 4.14.17 x86_64 (64 bit) Desktop: JWM git-976
Distro: Quirky 8.4.1 xerus64

Bios: American Megatrends v: P01-A4 date: 11/03/2009

Works for me.

You're wellcome,
When I said easydd and the iso I should have said easydd and the xerus64-8.4-8gb.img.gz, also, the dvd that I booted from was Quirky xerus64 8.1.94.

PostPosted: Tue 13 Feb 2018, 20:52    Post subject: I cannot install langpack  

Experienced Quirky user here. I'm unable to install langpack from pet-noarch. It offers only local source of install, no network. It is the same with any other package from this repo and the other pet-? repo (I forgot the name, not on Quirky right now). The ubuntu repos let me install anything from a network source. This was working on previous versions. I already refreshed all package sources.

Initial test 8.4.1

Hi Barry,

Thanks for 8.4.1 which I can confirm fixes all the issues raised prior to the release date.
The new 8GB image was installed to another 32GB USB3 stick using 7-Zip and Win32diskimager in Win10.

A grouped list of items so far installed & tested in this version is attached.
One group on that list worthy of mention is the 32-bit compatability stuff.

That is a prerequisite for anyone using 64-bit Pups in conjunction with debbi and the official Brother drivers & Cups wrapper.
I gather that we both use Brother HL Lasers and it may be that they are present in the devx.

Two install attempts to external mechanical-rotating hard disk paritions (old USB 2.0) failed to boot - kernel panic. Grub2 found the partitions OK and the files copied over perfectly, but would simply not boot up. Looks like a Grub2 problem.

Install to USB2 flash stick was OK using the 8g USB image was OK but runs too slowly. No sound at all.

Install to partition on internal mechanical-rotating drive went fine and runs very well. Sound is OK here and on the live DVD ISO as well.

Here's a boost for the often-maligned Seamonkey Suite. I tried to install the latest Firefox Quantum in Quirky. It ran OK from the decompressed archive that Mozilla supplies, but could not get the lbc.co.uk browser player stream to run in Firefox, whereas the Seamonkey suite in Quirky does run. This has been the case with several recent Firefox versions. Chromium-browser installed with the PPM also runs this site OK though.

I download AppImages (i.e. portable sandboxed apps) for Darktable 2.2.5 and the latest Libreoffice 6.0.1 that run perfectly under Quirky. These AppImages can be useful when the Xenial-based packages from the PPM fail to install, or are simply not available (or versions too old). Maybe these could be made available in the ISO. Trying to work out how to install Pitivi as a Flatpak, but no joy as yet.

Very cool utilities there - e.g. Dropbox

Thanks once again for the best Linux Distro.

I just installed Quirky Xerus 8.4.1. I did a fresh manual frugal install of 8.4 and installed the sevice pack pet for 8.4.1. I rebooted. Xorgwizard seemed to come up; it guessed everything right automatically for my new laptop.

For wifi it behaves like all other Quirky's and Easy's on this machine: no connection on startup with SNS, saved profile does not seem to work and frisbee does not find anything at all. I installed the .pet rerwin recently (20180209) offered on the Easy thread and that fixes everything.

Otherwise everything I tried seems to run fine.
I have the impression the CPU temperature keeps low, around 30°C, where I usually have around 36°.


Thanks for the feedback. For everyone else, rerwin created a network-fix pet for latest EaasyOS, they can also be tested on latest Quirky 8.4.1, get it here:

Ha ha, that's very funny Laughing

EasyOS Pyro64 is built with binary packages compiled in OpenEmbedded, whereas Quirky Xerus64 is built with Ubuntu 16.04 DEBs, so there will likely be some collateral damage afer installing the Service Pack, that will show up somewhere.
