Linux kernel 4.17 was released. I hope @smokey01 would compile that kernel using the provious config file that I gave to him.

That kernel has improved power saving and reworked loops. This means it is more efficient.

If so may I also request the kernal source and maybe a few more kernal modules for sound and monitors.

I found the following:

Review of alpha11:

-ptmtimer wasn't installed yet mo files were still there.
-paste command was found --> good! (needed for bulldog finder)
-I noticed that tux user has a right click menu to install a taz package
whereas root user doesn't.

- I reccommend that 'mpscan' and 'getlocalip' be installed --->

You can test which is better..

Bulldog Finder

pFind
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1gXpTYsERPCBPs90XfRc_OCaMjx6snc8k

I made each have a right click but a login as root user is needed.

I presume TazPup has turned to using bash as its system shell as a hack workaround to use legacy gtkdialog apps. If anyone wants to use more appropriate (in terms of efficient and faster) system shell, such as busybox ash used by pristine Slitaz, I have converted pfind 6.3 from BionicDog repo to use gtkwialog -b mode, which allows it to work with dash, or ash, or bash. My post about that is here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=994512#994512

Above is for testing by fredx181 only though and not intended for general release.

I am also in the process of converting my own Puppy/Dog gtkdialog apps to use gtkwialog instead for the same ash/dash/bash compatibility reasons and any new apps I'm creating will be written to depend on gtkwialog also for that reason (For example: latest cast2chrome app is my first gtkwialog dependent app; Precord and weX being converted soon; I'll leave makepup as it is since only used on a Puppy). Note that gtkwialog is a drop in replacement for gtkdialog (includes gtkdialog traditional system() call operating mode, and full functionality, as well as having the new dash, ash compatible modes; so if you have gtkwialog on your system, you don't need gtkdialog but can instead just make gtkdialog a symbolic link to gtkwialog). ALL AT YOUR OWN RISK OF COURSE: gtkwialog was only really written for my own use and purposes, but it appears to be stable and working well (and includes, pretty much untouched, full, most recent, legacy gtkdialog mode).

In alpha 11, there is a bug where if you try to install something offline with tazpkg...for example:
Code:

tazpkg install uextract-3.32.tazpkg

and you don't specify the full path then you get the following error:
Code:

/usr/libexec/tazpkg/install: .: line 415: can't open '/tmp/tmp.iz9hDB/receipt'


It shouldn't be too hard to fix. One just needs to note the current directory and adjust the path accordingly.

The work around to this bug is to specify the whole path when using tazpkg.

Code:

tazpkg install /root/Downloads/uextract-3.32.tazpkg


I think this is a major problem actually. I noticed that when I ran my script
https://pastebin.com/GPZ6KGEt

I get a ton of errors related to 'getcwd' not working:
Code:

3 missing packages to install.

shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory
pwd: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory
pwd: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory
shell-init: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory
pwd: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory
pwd: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory
chdir: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory


If I grep for 'getcwd', I find it all over the place, in binary and text files. Any file linked to coreuitls seems to have the reference to this sytem call. It is also a perl command.

Try these greps:
Code:

grep -rnwI . -e 'getcwd'


Leave off the I in "-rnwI", if you want to see how many binary files reference this system call. This call is everywhere and it is not working! There must be a library that has this system call that isn't installed.

Edit. I think that we can fix it by linking the following commands back to either busybox or busybox-pup. The commands that we need to link back are, "shell-int", "pwd", and "chdir"

Or at least we need to link them back until we figure out which library has the missing system call 'getcwd'

Edit2 I tried linking /bin/pwd to busybox-pup. It didn't solve my problem. I'm out of ideas.

Edit3 My script seems to be installing stuff despite the error. However, I noted that some post install scripts fail.

Edit4 Did a bit of googling. It might be a permission issue. I'll have to see if I get the same error if I run the script in a directory not owned by root.

I haven't done any testing of this kernel.
Edit: I have now dropped this kernel into slacko-6.9.9.9 and it seems to be working ok.

New version 9.0.5 of Precord released. Same functionality as previous version but Precord now uses gtkwialog [-b] and hence works with system shell dash, or ash, or bash.

Find deb package here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=370446#370446

Please remember to remove your old $HOME/.precord folder before first use.

So I found out youtube plays sound on Madori for me. It is palmoon and firefox that don't play sound.

I'm not entirely sure the errors that I previously mentioned had to do with system call problems. I notice that tazpkg can find the current working directory:

Lines 30 to 32
Code:

COMMAND="$1"
PACKAGE="${2%/}"
PACKAGE_DIR="$(cd $(dirname "$PACKAGE" 2>/dev/null) 2>/dev/null; pwd)"
[ -n "$PACKAGE" ] && PACKAGE_FILE="$PACKAGE_DIR/${PACKAGE##*/}"


but in alpha 11 it doesn't seem to call the related libexec function with the full path.

Lines 252 to 256
Code:

install|-i)
check_cmd su pkg file; shift
for i in $@; do
/usr/libexec/tazpkg/install $i
done


I'm thinking that I sould replace /usr/bin/tazpkg, with the alpha 9 version and maybe that will fix the few issues that I noticed with tazpkg.....hmmmm still the same error!

The "set time zone configuration" thing isn't working for me under the setup menu

I found out that if I write click on a menu item and selection "add to desktop", then I can right click on the desktop item to find out the command that the menu item runs.

The timezone one is
Code:

tazboxl tz


now how do I set the time from the internet?...figured that out:
1. Re-Login tada
*Note, nptd is running so it works. Tazpanel controls which daemons start at boot.

Logging out and in also fixed the issue with seamonky not loading.

I think that this can be fixed by doing a test to see if there is a file called "$i" and if there isn't then prepend the package directory to "$i" before calling, "/usr/libexec/tazpkg/install $i "
