PostPosted: Sun 15 Apr 2018, 11:50    Post subject: foomatic drivers found  

I found a copy (stored in SSD) of the foomatic files rcrsn51 made a few years back.

Sorry for double link, but some people may need a heads-up. This link goes to the actual upload post, but the first post in the thread should be consulted if any questions.

Foomatic D/L Post

Also found in forum is the post to upgrade Slacko-based pups OpenSSL from 1.0.1 to 1.0.2g. There are a few caveats here AFTER the pet install... mainly that one must go to Slackware.com --> security advisories --> 2018 and D/L the latest OpenSSL patch (1.0.2o). The version is Slackware 14.2, and the solibs are done first as a pet, then the OpenSSL as pet.

The 1.0.2g upgrade link is HERE

Most netbooks were Intel Atom. No Meltdown or Spectre problems, and no hidden "policeman" on the CPU chip (Intel Management Engine, and other names).

The two items in the post right above yours is all they need.

On the Other Hand, I have made the EONS spin for a few years. It has everything you listed, EXCEPT the kernel is 3.4.82. You may remove the office if you don't want it. As far as I know acpi works in that one, but Lenovo may disagree, just as it did with this version.

i've spent a lot of time to setup slacko5.7.0 (pae though i have only 1G ram - don't remember why i chose this...) the way i wanted.

if it's only about openSSL, i think i can keep my slacko5.7.0 and install the update.

thx for advise

HerrBert is correct, on the r6089 release acpi does not load, and is not assigned a pid.

It appears that in this version, the network is still being configured during the attempt. That process must finish, and according to Slacko5.7 original, acpid loaded, then CUPS.

A few things look out of order in bootsys.init in comparison between original Slacko5.7 and this 5.7.1 version.

The error generates on line 223 in my eeePC (Intel Atom n270), but should be considered as nearby for other CPU's.

R6127 also working here on eeePC900a.
A look behind the scene of acpi is that it does load and does not b'cast its pid.

I removed FF28 and loaded FF27-configured as a test, and all is well. Video drivers not needed were also removed... just i915 and i965 remain. Adrive removed. Runs well so far as frugal Pupmode-13. (Gdmap = 465Mb, Gpart =420 of 768Mb)

I also note the new Atheros drivers that were patched in kernel (memory leaks). I will have to test the wifi (ath5k patched) ... eth0 (atl_1e) OK.

patched Ath5k driver working.
MESSAGES reports ASPC not working... OS does not support.
Trivial. Besides thats where the leak is.
I wasn't aware of that situation.

ION: D/L'd the foomatic driver pet by rcrsn51 (see previous posts). Loaded OK... things went where they are expected to go.

I will test this soon. I have a backup plan at hand if problems. In short, transferring etc files for a known good install.

============================================================

*** One little glitch here... the eeePC hot_key file not present in this spin. In checking out the wifi, I discovered that the "blue light" does not toggle on/off. A search using pfind did not find any files with 'eeepc'. Other tests indicate the wifi is on or off... but with light always on, well, its a bit disconcerting.

file names from k3.4.82 original slacko5.7

/lib/modules/3.4.82/kernel/drivers/platform/x86/eeepc-laptop.ko

/lib/modules/3.4.82/kernel/drivers/platform/x86/eeepc-wmi.ko

There are other files/directories located in /sys/bus/*
I don't know if these are taken/copied from the .ko files above. ***

Thanks for the info 8Geee. From what I can tell, the last "kernel config" with eeepc-laptop and eeepc-wmi was 3.14 so I reuploaded an iso built with 3.14 to older folder for testing... would be curious if this one works for your blue light or not.

I tried the k3.14.79 last night, late, the blue light remained on. Not sure what this bug is. Boot manager indicated the 'eeepc_laptop' module was loaded, because I could not add it.

'eeepc_wmi' was not loaded, but would not install because there was no object found. This is also true on k3.4.82 (original).

Don't worry too much about this bug, if the actual.ko iss faulty. The other 99% with non-Atom processors need the k3.18.x more than I need a light on/off.

PostPosted: Tue 08 May 2018, 00:34    Post subject: r6157 fixes certain bugs  

Good news on the r6157 version (k3.18.108)

1.) Puppy Universal Install now works 'properly' as in the original slacko5.7 No jumping thru hoops. syslinux reports as version 4.03. During boot up there were funny characters in the name, that has gone. Maybe it was a 'special' version?

2.) Wifi light now toggles on/off other FN+f2. Screen bright/dim always worked (FN+f3 or 4).

Noted that I was using the default puppypc(abcde) numeric login. I had been changing this at first boot... that might be a no-no.

Regardds and thanks
8Geee

Subject description: for slacko-5.7.1
 

I put together a package of pets for "pcmanfm-1.3.0_plus_deps-571" as an alternative or additional filemanager.

If interested, look here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=991305#991305

This filemanager is working very well on 5.7.1

Elsewhere in the forum, there is a new version of Pup-Sys Info (PSI). This 2.8 version checks for meltdown/spectre using the Tab "Mainboard" --> CPU.
