Hmm, no probs here...
How your boot config file looks like?
And where's your save{file|folder} located?
___________

I noticed that GIMP no longer supports loading and exporting to JPEG due to missing 'libexif' library.
___________

There's a problem with that technicolor "bubble" GTK theme.
Not new, happens also in 701.
Enabling it breaks displaying of SVG images in some ways:
- thumbnails in ROX-Filer
- Xpad's icon in tray
- ROX AppDirs (e.g. rox-clock's)
(see screenshot)

It didn't break my Swatch and CPUTemp tray apps (which also use SVG), maybe because the generated images are too simple..?
This is the only theme that uses 'svg' engine, so perhaps that's the actual culprit.
___________

Btw, how about unifying the look of QT apps to match the current GTK theme?
Code:
sed -i 's/^style=.*/style=GTK+/' /root/.config/Trolltech.conf

Greetings!

Thank you everyone for your feedback. Keep them coming Smile

@LateAdopter
I can update libdrm. I will see what I can do with the intel driver; I'm a bit reluctant from git because sometimes they break things (I mean, they fix one thing and break another). Any idea on what version of intel driver is used by Tahrpup64?

@L18L - the NLS name of _702rc.sfs is only temporary. It will become 702.sfs upon release.

@L18L - make the waitdev a bit longer may be?

@mories - the /tmp permission in underlying SFS doesn't matter. /tmp is usually overmounted with tmpfs, which will automatically set the correct permission.

@ally - x201 - is this bios/uefi machine? boot hanging - did you get into graphical screen? You said pressing ctrl-alt-backspace, that would imply that you get into a graphical desktop. But I'm not sure if I understand that you're trying to say.

@SFR - thank you for the patches.

@L18L - fix-usb.sh tries to be careful. If you have a 3rd partition in your disk, it is possible that fix-usb.sh may accidentally wipe it off, so it refuses to make the changes (the "paranoia" comment explains it Laughing)

@SFR - I have libexif installed, so I didn't have the problem. I will add libexif to basesfs. It seems to be used by a few others too.

@SFR - gtk-chtheme something crazy and it deletes gdk-pixbuf-loaders cache. I need to look into that and patch it *NOT* to do that. To fix your problem, just run "gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache" and all should be well again.
EDIT: No, that's not it. It's a bug in GTK (or GDK maybe), if you restart Xorg then everything will be well again.

@SFR - Trolltech.conf has a few sections. Which section should the "style" preference go?

Good to know there are no probs at your side.
I have been using dd to sdc, remaster and fix-usb.sh.

..aaahhh
I should have edited boot config files at remaster process
so that partition 3 will be searched for save file.

Just noted this so that others can find it. (It is not listed by sfsmanager...)

I have been trying this too. But no, see above.

It did not wipe it off but it was the only way to get access to partition 3 again.

The only way is to restart X or the affected apps.

It's style variable on 8th line, which is empty by default:
Code:
[Qt]
font="DejaVu Sans,11,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0"
Palette\active=@Invalid()
Palette\inactive=@Invalid()
Palette\disabled=@Invalid()
fontPath=@Invalid()
embedFonts=true
style=
doubleClickInterval=400
...

Btw, spot also has this file as well as newly created users - I'm not sure where this file actually comes from, couldn't find any template anywhere...

Greetings!

Yes, we cross-posted. I just think about how the stuff works, and I think I can offer an explanation why it doesn't work but there seems to be now way to get this fixed other than restarting the app (no need to restart entire Xorg, just the app).
TL;DR: Changing theme is done by re-reading gtkrc files. GTK isn't reloading pixbuf loaders when re-reading gtkrc files.

[/quote]Okay thanks, I was looking at the running system so the Trolltech.conf is a bit convoluted. I'll see if it the intended effect. Does it work on Qt5 too? 710 will come with Qt5 by default ...

Spot's one is its own copy. All other new users will have file inherited from /root. In mainstream distro you will inherit them from /etc/skel, in Fatdog the /etc/skel is actually /root Wink

@L18L - glad to you find the cause. I'm surprised that partition 3 isn't searched automatically, though. The initrd code is supposed to look for all partitions, unless you told it otherwise.

cheers!

Can't check, but according to Arch wiki:
Quote:
For Qt 5, it can be enabled by setting the following environment variable: QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=GTK+.

Aaaah, indeed - there is HOME_TEMPLATE=${BASE_SFS_MOUNT}/root in mkuser.sh.
Now it's clear, thanks!

Greetings!

@SFR: Just tested running Qt4 app with style set to GTK+. It's uglier, some UI elements (e.g the panel separator) becomes indistinguishable from other elements (e.g the panel itself), overall (for me) is worse UI. So I'll skip this.

I don't know the proper way to determine what was actually used, but here is the result of my research.

For libdrm woof only knows about 2.4.48 and 2.4.60, so I don't think an update is necessary.

For intel_drv.so woof knows about the utopic and vivid enablement stack updates for Trusty and both directory names appear in Tahrpup64, so I guess it is using the vivid version.

Anyway, I found the bug listing for my bug on Launchpad as applicable to the Trusty version of the Vivid stack. It has a link to a picture like I get and the date of the git version that is used as the fix for the current Ubuntu Trusty Vivid stack.

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-intel/+bug/1449892

If you are worried about breaking something, it might be better to put the updated driver in the repo rather than the ISO. Given the current state of Skylake support on linux, I expect there will be more updates before Xenial is out. Not that I'm thinking of getting a Skylake processor!

@LateAdopter - Thanks. I already updated libdrm. I have also uploaded a new xf86-video-intel with the patch you gave above http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/packages/700/xf86-video-intel-2.99.917-x86_64-1.txz. Please download and install and see if it fixes your problem. Thanks.

Hello jamesbond

I've found a built version of intel_drv.so with the correct ABI version 18.0 in Debian Jessie backports. And it works in fatdog702rc and it renders the video correctly.

@SFR, @L18L: Thank you, fixed.

@LateAdopter: I've updated xf86-video-driver-2.99.918pre to the repo, this is a git snapshot done by the BLFS team. I seems pretty good to me, let me know if this one works for you. I'm happy that the Debian driver is working for you but I'm hoping we can have our own driver that we can ship in the base ISO.

cheers!

Hello jamesbond

Yes, that one(.918) works properly.
I've checked the xorg log and the video rendering and they are ok. I'm going to install your vaapi packages next. They look quite up to date.

Thanks
