Subject description: Nov. 2015. The first official 64 bit Puppy!
 

Slacko64 6.3.0 is out!

See the new slacko website for downloads and links to the release notes and official announcement. I have emailed Barry to contact Ladislav at Distrowatch.



Bug report thread.

Enjoy!


/*----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------*/

Sorry guys.. I had to reupload the iso. There was a fatal flaw in sfs_load - my fault.

So if you grabbed it before Tue Nov 17 00:04:24 UTC 2015 (Tue Nov 17 10:04:24 EST 2015 [Australian]) you'll have to delete and re-download.


/*----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------*/




----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Legacy info


A delta is up at the below link to upgrade your iso 7MB

Updated 11 November

- fixed encrypted save files
- fixed themeing
- latest woof fixes

Get it: http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/test/slacko64/6101/

Use the previous devx

NOTE: no fdrv as per 6.1.0.1 - built from testing branch woof-CE

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes are the same as the 32 bit version.

- (kernel source is in the slacko64 repo with the pets)

It is rather large because it has lots of firmware, however it is not all loaded by default. On the iso you'll notice a new file called fdrv_slacko_6.0.8.1.sfs. This is the extra firmware which is cross checked from the kernel modules so that no firmware that is not needed gets included.

The idea is that if all your hardware works then just don't load the fdrv or if you do and install to usb, hdd, whatever discard it. But if some piece of hardware, be it your graphics card or wireless card, doesn't work then you can load the fdrv from the kernel commandline :
Code:
puppy pfix=fw_drv

or tack fw_drv onto your grub or syslinux commandline.

Other than that this is just a normal slacko64 in every other respect. So report things as per normal.

I loaded the driver sfs with SFS-Load on-the-fly.

My Linksys WUSB54GC v1 802.11g Adapter [Ralink RT73] is working now,
not sure if the firewall settings were the problem before.
Anyways, it's working now.

Thanks.

Edit: I just booted my Slacko-6.0.7.4 32bit and my Linksys WUSB54GC v1 802.11g Adapter [Ralink RT73] is working here too.
It would appear to run okay at first but firefox couldn't connect to the forum "server not found" message, after running the firewall setup and clicking on several options it is working fine.

Booting from CD pfix=ram

First time click the top tray it crashes. OK after X restart
pdesktop will not run because /root/.jwm/tmp/pdesktop_xml is missing. Eventually when pTheme is used the file is generated and pdesktop runs.
ptheme through a bunch of errors on “apply” one of the default themes (bright mouse etc) and the pTheme windoe grays out.
Also pTheme changes the ROX pin with no obvious way to change that. You may want to include/incorporate your old desksetup
GTK theme switcher will not provide an instant preview of the theme so the user has no idea how it will look. Even worse, default is not the theme used. AAMOF there is no way to go back to whatever was used.
The “more” buttons in both “colors of window /...” and “Window buttons” open the button themes. No way to change the colors of windows.
So pTheme needs some (a lot) more work. Hopefully Zigbert will get to it soon.

Other than that, everything looks good. I did not have fw issues but loading fdrv did not create any issues either Wink

Sfs_load is outdated but hopefully we’ll get it into rootfs-packages soon. For now, here is a newer version

Updating 6060 works fine. However, updating when booting from CD needs to be looked at as will copy the SFSs at the root of the partition and not in the folder and more important will not update initrd.gz and vmlinuz. I’ll raise a bug.

First findings and fixes

Firewall
- checked the default setup, and couldn't connect to puppylinux.org
- /usr/sbin/connectwizard points to firewallinstallshell (line 257)

Jwm_config
- desktop mouseclicks:
/root/.jwm/root_menus/menu1/2/3 misses, but is precent in Woof?
https://github.com/puppylinux-woof-CE/woof-CE/tree/testing/woof-code/rootfs-packages/jwm_config/root/.jwm/root_menus
Without these links, jwm_config/ptheme will give an error message when activating new settings.
- pdesktop doesn't start at first run - Fixed in Woof
- Remove existing item in tray - Fixed in Woof

pTheme
- Woof (rootfs-packages/ptheme) contains 2 wallpapers in /usr/share/backgrounds. These are not included in this iso?
- Jwm-theme-swither included code to window-buttons-switcher - Fixed in Woof

pTheme uses a new jwm theme switcher. The old themes are located in $HOME/.jwm/themes, and not in /usr/share/jwm/themes as requested. This could of course be changed, but themes are shared data and should be placed in /usr. The new switcher generates a preview, and does not require the png's in the theme pets. Also, this Slacko includes the Stardust jwm-themes in $HOME/.jwm/themes. This is overkill, since they are a part of the pTheme pack.

Much better Very Happy
The remaining issues from the ones reported is the gtk theme switcher and the ROX Pinboard issues.

Some new ones have to do with the (top) tray configuration.
Apply does nothing visible. You have to manually restart JWM to see the changes.
These is no quit/exit button. You have to use the window close button.
When you select a configuration button on the left there is no evident way to go back to the tray settings screen (you have to press again the 'TrayN" button that is already highlighted!)
Does not make any sense to hide the tray in a different side than where is present. By the time you move the mouse will hide again. Autohide should just be on and off, but you should be able to position the tray in all 4 sides instead of only top and bottom.

BTW in the current setting selecting to hide the tray in a different position just makes it crash and disappear.

Manual frugal install to my HP desktop.
I just left the firewall turned off and my Linksys WUSB54GC v1 802.11g
Adapter [Ralink RT73] is working fine.
I installed zigbert's pet and setting up JWM is working, I do miss the
right click to bring up the menu.

Thanks.

Edit: I discovered that clicking the middle button brings up the menu, nice.

I'm thinking the firewall runs too early. The old firewall was completely broken and that's why everything connected! Laughing We seem to must have a net connection before running the firewall. I think it should be removed from quicksetup. The tray icon is enough alert.

@Billtoo.

On wireless, after a reboot, if the firewall is on, and you have already set it up, does it make the network connection?

Yes, just tried it, it took a few seconds but wireless is working.

In any event, this system is extremely responsive. Very Happy But, I fear, that had I had WAN access, I would have locked the system with the number of browser tabs I usually open before discovering the missing SWAP that was traditionally discovered at boot in Slackos.

Hope this is helpful as things progress

@gcm

Is the md5sum ok?

loads swap here just fine. Maybe the kernel doesn't like your hardware? Is your CD/DVD reader wearing out? Did you get a batch of dodgy media? Check dmesg and /var/log/messages and also the boot logs in /tmp

The checksum was checked at download time. Its OK.

Just rebooted Pristine again. The boot did NOT pick up the SWAP, but it did change the used RAM count to something reasonable like you show. I think in my initial playing around I used the new 'f-drive boot parm' and I must conclude that it had something to do with the used RAM count. But on this boot, I did NOT use it. Still, the system is very fast (responsive). Manually starting SWAP, of course, works. But, new users will miss this and experienced PUP users will too.

Now if I can just wrap my arms around this LAN-WAN issue. Just tried the Frisbee approached tested last week, but, now, I am not getting anywhere with that, either.

If there is some data I can provide that would yield insight for this DELL AIO touchscreen system, please let me know.

P.S. I know that TahrPUP64 is another PUP, but, it does NOT have the LAN-WAN problems described. I await the TahrPUP64 ISO with a newer kernel built (version 4.xx++) in it, to try it.

It's only 20 MB, maybe 100MB expanded (CORRECTION: 43 MB, 81 MB expanded). How can you come to that conclusion? I can see it as an hypothesis but certainly not a conclusion.

That's like me saying "I conclude that the kernel doesn't like your hardware".

In fact that is my hypothesis.

- some bugfixing in tray setter
- added the missing backgrounds in /usr/share/backgrounds
- added jwm themes to /usr/share/jwm/themes (from /root/.jwm/themes)

More to come... as soon as more time is available
- mavrothal is right - tray setter could be simplified, but that is not a minor task. Let's see...
- mavrothal is right - both gtk/jwm theme switcher could be improved.

Personally, I think the default settings for any theme should be set as a global theme in pTheme. Like this, user can revert back to the default settings.
