I did some research, and tried LICK 1.2.

It worked like a charm.

I now have a dual boot computer.

Is there a good reason why the devx does not show in the list when you run sfsget?

Could the devx be placed in the same repository location as the other sfs packages?

Some big reason why sfsget does not have a menu entry?

Quote:
devx here http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/test/xenialpup/
for the kernel sources type sfsget into a terminal
for 32bit compatibility libs type sfsget into a terminal

Save folder.

I can live with this and have been for some time.
Just wonder why it is required in Xenialpup.

Video card Nvidia GeForce GTX 970.

Initial first boot, have to use nouveau.modeset=0 to get to visible desktop.
Here is some info on KMS
https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/wiki/KernelModeSetting/

Still trying to figure out what is the difference between a kernel that does not have a problem and one that does.
But it does involve KMS and the nouveau driver kernel module.


hi bigpup

can you try deleting /lib/modules/4.9.59/kernel/drivers/video/fbdev/nvidia/nvidiafb.ko and rebooting

Hi 666philb Smile

/usr/bin/icewm-xdgmenu is needed to convert the jwm main menu for the icewm window manager:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=797032#797032

icewm-xdgmenu fails to start on Xenialpup64-7.0.8.6 kernel 4.9.58
Code:
# icewm-xdgmenu: error while loading shared libraries: libX11.so.6: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64


whereas it works on Zestypup and Artfulpup with kernel 4.9.56 32 bits:
Code:
# icewm-xdgmenu
Creates a icewm menu from an XDG menu structure.
Usage:
  icewm-xdgmenu xdgmenufile

  xdgmenufile: Fully qualified path to the XDG menu file. This is a mandatory parameter

For example:
  icewm-xdgmenu "/etc/xdg/menus/applications.menu"


to invoke it from icewm, add a menuprog entry to the menu configuration file

  menuprog Title icon icewm-xdgmenu xdgmenufile
#


have browsed the web to find a fix without success Sad

thanks for any help to fix this
Charlie


hi charlie6

xenialpup64 comes with the 64bit icewm-xdgmenu,
i installed icewm from the PPM to test , tried it and it worked for me.
looks like you installed the 32bit version overwriting xenialpup64s built in one

Tried it.
Did not help.

However, the actual deletion is stored in the save.
Is that good enough or should I actually delete it from the zdrv.sfs?

hi bigpup,

yes you could try removing it from the zdrv.sfs although the savefile is loaded before the modesetting driver kicks in.

did you try artfulpups fdrv.sfs? as it does have extra nouveau firmware in it.

if the above both fail can you PM me /var/log/messages & /var/log/Xorg.0.log from a failed boot.
if you can drop to a prompt just copy them to /root before rebooting.
if you have to hard poweroff they should be available in the save file accessed from another puppy.

cheers

PostPosted: Wed 15 Nov 2017, 18:16    Post subject: Googleearth from package manager does not start  

I am not running Xenialpup64 CE 7.0.8.6 as I type this so I may have the details wrong. I obtained the sfs package for googleearth from the PPM. The sfs is shown as loaded and there is a menu entry under internet. clicking the menu item does not appear to do anything.
Trying to start the program from a terminal does produce an error message and it appears that the startup script is failing to find a configuration file.

Hi superchook,

Regarding the configuration problem you have, if it can't be solved, you can try something else.

From experience, I can tell you that this build of google-earth-pro-7.1.8.3036_x86_64.sfs for Slacko64 works in Xenialpup64: http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko6414.2/.

I haven't yet tried Mike Walsh's new build for Tahrpup64, Google_Earth_Pro-7.3.0.3830-tahr-amd64.sfs, but considering that Slacko64 has less in common with Xenialpup64 than Tahrpup64, there's a good chance it will also work. You can find it here: http://www.mediafire.com/file/atlyhrd51x7v8ls/Google_Earth_Pro-7.3.0.3830-tahr-amd64.sfs

Many thanks mikesLr both your suggested packages worked.
Attempting to start the original googleearth_amd64_patched.sfs from a terminal produced the result shown in the attached file.
cheers,
Ken

Hi superchook,

Very strange. Xenialpup64's google-earth is looking for libopenjpeg.so.2. but can't find it. Often, the absence of a lib(rary) can be fixed by locating and installing it. Checking both Xenialpup64's PPM and Ubuntu Repo Search, https://packages.ubuntu.com/, the latter for any version, suggest that libopenjpeg.so jumps from 1.5 to 5. No 2 anywhere.

Even with google-earth-pro-7.1.8.3036_x86_64.sfs loaded and opened, pfind doesn't find libopenjpeg.so.2 on the system. I would have expected at least a symbolic link named libopenjpeg.so.2 pointing to --telling the system to use-- libopenjpeg.so.5.

And ldd of its binary in /opt/google/earth shows no missing libraries.

Hi fred,

You're right. Don't know how I missed it. And looking at PPM, although I'm running 7.0.8.5, it doesn't show an SFS, but apparently only the relevant "googleearth-package_1.2.2" described as "utility to automatically build a Debian package of Google Earth".

My PPM doesn't access Ubuntu Trusty's repos. I guess they could be added, or after the 'Debian package" built, the build could by modified to include the required library separately downloaded from a Trusty repo.

PostPosted: Thu 16 Nov 2017, 18:09    Post subject: quickpet  

the release version of xenialpup64 is just about ready ( finally Razz )

i'm now just finishing off xenialpup32 and they'll be ready for release.

in the mean time if you could test the attached quickpet and check that all links and packages are working etc. (at the time of writing this the nvidia drivers might not have synced with nluug yet)

the .pet will overwrite your /root/.spot-status & /usr/local/petget/hacks-postinstall.sh.

cheers

It fails to find devx. This is really an sfsget issue rather than quickpet.
This because puppies are now in ibiblio paths different than originally expected to be ie $DISTRO_FILE_PREFIX-$DOTVER. In Tahr for example is in puppy-tahr/iso/tahrpup64-6.0.5/
Would be a good idea actually puppy builders to follow a consistent path structure for the new puppies, now that both 32 and 64bit versions are provided.

Anyway I guess you can either add a file for the devx in /usr/local/quickpet/ wherever it may be or utilize this recent change in sfsget
