@s243a it seems my approach on /dev/shm does not work. I made a test by typing this command

Code:
 echo 1 > /dev/shm/file

That was weird. I already set the permission of /dev/shm to 1777 when the system boots up take a look at /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit that was supposed to be work. May I know where did you get that iron browser? I will try to download it

Also I found something weird on loading the save file (not save folder) in TazPuppy. The /initrd/mnt/dev_save mountpoint cannot be accesed by ordinary user account only the root account can. Even I set the permission to 1777 it still cannot be accesed by ordinary user.


Just search the tazpup package manager for "iron". I believe that it is called "iron-linux" in the package manager.

@s243a I successfully fixed the /dev/shm permission upon booting. Now it successfully set the /dev/shm permission when the system boots.

Mistfire, thank you for various improvements in beta 6.

Now, the synaptics touchpad is recognized and flsynclient starts successfully.
Xorg configuration introduces modesetting driver. I changed xorg.conf to use radeon driver. This does not matter much, I think.

I am glad that sfs_load does not take time at boot.

Before beta 6, I had difficulty enabling the default sound card, because the machine ThinkPad X121e has HDMI output. Now configuring the sound card has become much easier.

However, I am afraid the volume setting is not saved. This seems to be true of some recent versions.
To save the volume setting, I make a link /etc/asound.state pointing to /var/lib/alsa/asound.state. Then I execute the command alsactl store, which seems to save to /var/lib/alsa/asound.state.

Edit
The link got replaced by a new file at reboot. I changed the method as follows:
Code:
# alsactl store
# cp /var/lib/alsa/asound.state /etc/asound.state

New frugal install on USB Flash Drive on Dell Laptop i3-5005U. Synaptics touch pad working well OOTB, just made minor adjustment to sensitivity and disabled tapping.

I am having major problem with getting sound to work. Previously changing asound.conf, to that from other puppies and I could configure sound. I tried multiple times to configure sound without changing asound.conf, but could not get any sound. I changed asound.conf, but still had no sound. I have no idea how to configure sound in beta 6.

Also Volume Control is listed as being included in Panel, it does not appear. I t also wasn't initially displayed in previous releases until after sound was working.

@TerryH did you boot TazPuppy beta 6 on pristine state? Try to stop the alsa by typing this on terminal
Code:
/etc/init.d/pup_alsa<space>stop

Delete the /etc/asound.state
Then start the alsa
Code:
/etc/init.d/pup_alsa<space>start


NOTE: The alsa sound configuration file is now at /etc

Also this link will help

Yes it was a new clean install, as you had made changes to the 2 areas I had some difficulties on previous releases I wanted to check progress for these(alsa and synaptics).

I ran the stop pup_alsa, this had a side effect, it caused lxpanel to crash. I ran several times to confirm. After deleting asound.state and then starting pup_alsa, I ended up back at the same point, the start finds and configures the HDMI interface and I have the same setup created, without sound.

I was no further enlightened in configuring alsa by reading the alsa section in the Arch wiki.

@Terry H

Sound defaults to HDMI on my machine, too.

To prevent this, I create /etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf.

Code:
options snd_hda_intel index=0
options snd_hda_intel index=1


This is based on the output of the following command:

# cat /proc/asound/modules
0 snd_hda_intel
1 snd_hda_intel

I wonder if creating /etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf will be of help to you.

@thinkpadfreak.

Excellent, that did it, sound now working with HDA Intel PCH being default.

Even after the information that you advised, I don't understand it. It's working correctly, so all is good. Thank you.


@mistfire.

The volume function keys (F1, F2, F3) are all functioning correctly also.

So thank you for another great job on this release. Everything tested so far running smoothly and lightning fast. Running palemoon linked from /mnt/home with 3 Tabs still only using about 250 MB memory.

That was nice @thinkpadfreak. I modified the pup_alsa to add soundcard.conf on /etc/modprobe.d based on your idea. Right now Im dealing with autoconfiguration in a situation where video card setup not changed but the monitor changed.

I am unable to set up sound on beta 7, even thought this has the soundcards.conf, which matches the sound.conf previously provided by thinkpadfreak. I still can not get PCH to be used for sound.

With beta 6, as soon as I included the sound.conf, sound worked straight away. That is not happening with beta 7, for some reason.

@mistfire It was identified in the bionicpup64 thread that some SD Card Readers within laptops are not functional in some Puppies. In my case I identified that 3 drivers related to rtsx_pci module required for the Realtek RTS525A pcie Card Reader were not included in kernel modules.

If it is not a difficult task, next time you compile a kernel could you please cater for this hardware.

Thanks in advance.

@Terry H I think we need to get deeper to determine the soundcard problem. I was thinking, what if I bring back barry's alsa soundcard which can be found on Puppy 4.X which allows to configure soundcard manually

About RTSX kernel module i recompiled now the kernel and it is now builitin (I will to release the fix pretty soon). My customized kernel has the following builtin kernel modules:
* IDE and SATA drivers
* Keyboard and Mouse drivers
* USB and Firewire drivers
* MMC, NVME, PCMCIA, and MEMSTICK drivers
* VESA and FB drivers
