Tried it on an old laptop (pentium M, intel video and wireless - circa 2005) and everything looks ok. Video, sound, wifi, touchpad etc.
However, it fail to detect that is a laptop so battery monitor did not autostart. OK after manually moving it to active. Also mpcputemp did not autostart although is in the startup folder. After manually starting it the first time was fine.
It would appear that monitor backlight control is nowhere to be found although other backlight functions are there (turnoff on lid closure, adjust when on AC).
Not sure if the kernel is too new or is udev or firmwere or acpi or...

For me it's the same. CPU temperature does not show on first boot or 2nd boot (just a blank empty space in taskbar) but shows up 3rd boot and after. I think it has something to do with needing to restart X after "something" happens but didn't look at it in more detail yet. Xenialpup taught me that my Pentium M's laptop fan usually comes on louder at ~70° to send the temperature down, and when I turn it on it's at about 35° then fluctuates between 42-72° depending on what I'm doing. Very interesting to watch Smile

The app will not run if the pmcputemprun file is not present. Is generated in first boot.
Then the xenial version will not display if the the pmcputemprc file is not present. Is generated in the second boot (or X-restart)
On 3rd boot everything is in place.

To solve the first boot needs tinkering with the ISO/pup sfs.
To solve 2nd boot issue try the attached pet that was compiled in xenial from source.

To reproduce the problem and/or test "solution", exit to prompt, remove the /root/.config/pmcputemp directory and start X
pmcputemp_xenial-1.pet
Description  Binary only. MUST have a "full" pmcputemp-<VER>.pet already installed for this to work.

Hi 666philb

Thanks for this update....

The following lines are probably missing from your
/support/rootfs-packages.conf
Code:
network_wizard="true"
simple_network_setup="true"

Your DISTRO_SPECS has wrong
BUILD_FROM_WOOF='testing;61d7002;2015-11-03 06:44:22 +1000'

This line needs to be deleted before running ./merge2out....

Cheers
peebee

You need wifi driver ath9k, which is missing from 7.0.8.6 (32-bit) even though it is present in the 64-bit version. Ethernet driver ath5k is also missing.

Xenial Pup 6.0.6 does not show my external usb-harddisk formatted Fat32 when inserted ......pmount also does not. Gparted does .

I had trouble the other day with a usbflashdrive that pmount and the desktop drive icons wouldn't show. It was fat32 but formatted without a partition, just "sdb" not "sdb1". I mounted it from a terminal:
Code:
mkdir /mnt/sdb
mount /dev/sdb /mnt/sdb
rox /mnt/sdb


See what Gparted calls it and then try the above.

Hi jrb !
Same as you:

Quote:

The same happens with Tahrpup 6.06 . But Tahrpup 6.0.5 shows Drive Icons automatically ....and so pmount does in Tahrpup 6.0.5 ..........also Xenial Dog .

Gparted shows :
/dev/sdc Fat32

Can not be mounted with Gparted .

Cause i am running Xenial Pup from Usb-Stick (which is sdb1) I put in Terminal:

mkdir /mnt/sdc
mount /dev/sdc /mnt/sdc
rox /mnt/sdc

so it does mount but is not shown as Drive Icon .....also not shown in Pmount .

But what lets Tahrpup 6.0.5 or Xenial Dog show up automatically my External Harddrive formatted Fat32 when inserted ....
What could be the missing ingredient in Xenial Pup and Tahrpup 6.0.6 ?

Regards!

I do not know how that stick was made but it has no partition table and and no partition(s). Unless you add a partition table (with gparted) gparted can not work with it.
Puppy utilities that show partitions also will not work with it.
I think that the difference with older puppies/dogs is the use an older probepart script. You can run "probepart -k" in the different puppies and see if indeed this is the case.

Depending on your point of view you may see the difference as a bug or a feature but it would be better to have a properly formatted stick with a partition table and partition(s).
Alternatively if indeed probepart is the reason, you may want to modify it to your liking and suggest the change.

Thanks Mavrothal for quick reply .

Yes indeed you are right......tested probepart -k in Tahrpup 6.0.5 and it shows my external HardDrive /dev/sdc|vfat|976762584 -------while it does not on Xenial Pup and Tahrpup 6.0.6

One Question maybe naive ......where to find this (older?) probepart .....and then copy it over to Xenial Pup or Tahrpup 6.0.6 .......possible ?
Another question ....can i add now a partition table afterwards to my extern Hardrive without loosing my Data ?
Regards !

You should be able to just copy it from Tahr-6.0.5.
