upgraded last night to EasyOS 2.2.10 manually, deleted working session then completed initial setup for clean install. All working very well.

I then downloaded skype.sfs. I haven't done an actual call, but integrated webcam on Dell Latitude 3350 Core i5-5200U was identified and displayed when doing video test.

Thanks Barry, this is excellent.

Big thanks to our friends in the Netherlands!

ibiblio.org is down to 64 kbits/s

https://ftp.nluug.nl/os/Linux/distr/easyos/amd64/releases/buster/2.2.11/

They offer 1189 Mbits/s - md5 looks good!

ibiblio.org looks good now.

strange, not here in australia, i've been getting constants of 1.2 to 1.8 MB/s for a while now, and i'm on a satellite connection so that slows the throuuput down anyway. Or is it your local ibiblio mirror that has problems?

PostPosted: Fri 21 Feb 2020, 03:44    Post subject: Working-partition ext4 filesystem shuts down unclean  

This has only been happening to me on a memory stick (been happening for a few releases now, but I put it up to the usb driver being shut down before all the 'cache' data being written out, so corrupting data), but I've just realized it never happens on one of my 2 partition hard drive install systems.

As i've just had a hard drive crash-and-burn, i'll try your latest and see what happens between the install on the hard drive and a memory stick.

might be of interest.

2.2.11: just a couple of issues so far. The .iso won't boot - read the warning - previous versions do. Not mission critical but our old friend requiring a second attempt at wifi activation is back. Otherwise, USB .img version works for all my requirements.

Thanks to jamesbond, HelpSurfer has become more stable:

https://bkhome.org/news/202002/helpsurfer-crash-fixed.html

It is amazing what old work is out there, that I have overlooked. Sometimes I see something interesting, and write a note that must check that out, then the piece of paper gets thrown out and I forget about it. I probably did see Jamesbond's blog post back in 2015 then forgot about it.

@BarryK

I read your blog about data corruption upon shutdown. I suggest that upon shutdown, just delete the rw_layer from aufs tree and umount the partition where save folder/file is saved (if possible) before poweroff command was executed. Take a look on /etc/rc.d/rc.shutdown of woof-ce latest commit (last line part)

Barry says: Try it!
Heh heh, I am trying to wean you off EasyPup!

Ok will do. I like both and EasyOS boots, reboots/shutsdown, and sees my usb stick.

I notice the usb stick shows as generic usb in EasyOS at boot. The other shows as "innostore" usb and may be a problem seeing it on boot.

Newest version works well. Still no webcam...grrr

Best,
Eric

Thanks for that info. Yes, commits by 'rizalmart' Jan 6 and 7 2020 look like what is needed. He has removed the save-folder from the aufs layers and then unmounted it.

I will give that a go!

So far it isn't working for me, just get "resource busy".

rizalmart put code in woof-CE to delete the rw layer from aufs, but does it actually work?

Many years ago, we put a huge effort into this, and did not succeed.

@BarryK it failed to delete from because pup_rw was still in use. Because of top mountpoint or there is an unclosed file for read/write on pup_rw. What if create a very small ramdisk, umount /dev, /sys, /proc, append the ramdisk on top of pup_rw layer mount again the /dev, /sys, /proc then delete the pup_rw from the aufs tree. It actually work if the drive/partition of save file/folder and puppy sfs file was different

PostPosted: Sun 23 Feb 2020, 04:55    Post subject: bad magic number in superblock
Subject description: unclean shutdown
 

@ Barry

Hi Barry,

might it be that overlapping partition tables are a factor which also can cause unclean shutdowns.

I do not think that this can explain the file system problems in 'old' Puppies, but as you can see below, fsck and gdisk both report ‘potential’(?) issues in EasyOS. Are these messages irrelevant?



# fsck /dev/sdb
fsck from util-linux 2.33.1
e2fsck 1.44.5 (15-Dec-2018)
ext2fs_open2: Bad magic number in super-block
fsck.ext2: Superblock invalid, trying backup blocks...
fsck.ext2: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/sdb

The superblock could not be read or does not describe a valid ext2/ext3/ext4
filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2/ext3/ext4
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
e2fsck -b 8193 <device>
or
e2fsck -b 32768 <device>

Found a dos partition table in /dev/sdb


# gdisk /dev/sdb
GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 0.8.10

Partition table scan:
MBR: MBR only
BSD: not present
APM: not present
GPT: not present


***************************************************************
Found invalid GPT and valid MBR; converting MBR to GPT format
in memory. THIS OPERATION IS POTENTIALLY DESTRUCTIVE! Exit by
typing 'q' if you don't want to convert your MBR partitions
to GPT format!
***************************************************************


Warning! Secondary partition table overlaps the last partition by
33 blocks!
You will need to delete this partition or resize it in another utility.

Command (? for help):



kind regards




BTW:

edit: see below


Since some time, this thread refuses attachments that actually should cause no problems.

error message:
The Attachment is too big.
Max Size: 256 KB

Does anybody know this problem?

Sorry:
as I became aware, the refused attachments really are too big!

So, problem resolved

PostPosted: Mon 24 Feb 2020, 10:05    Post subject: clean shutdown suggestions  

Just a thought about more clean shutdown on puppy/easy os for Main SFS files who does not copied to ram.

What if create a extreme simple ramdisk filesystem consists only of very static few busybox applets(https://busybox.net/downloads/binaries/1.30.0-i686/). the ash,umount,reboot,pivot_root, and poweroff.

We will use pivot_root to unmount the aufs root filesystem and execute umount -ar to unmount the /pup_ro mountpoints as well as /pup_rw if the main sfs and save file was on the same drive.
