I did run an md5 check sum on the iso and it corresponded with the one given. Should I have had an /xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf without adding it manually?


No, /xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf is not included in the Iso, good to know that adding it solves the problem for "Address of website" box, thanks again.

Hello Fred,
I was wondering if something had got corrupted as I was installing but if /xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf is not in the iso it looks as if my install is probably OK. I've made a note that it has to be added with my version of intel.

Thanks again,

Ken.

Hi all

Regarding the Palemoon issues...
I'm hesitating to add the fix/workaround for Palemoon by adding the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf in next DevuanDog ISO.
This is because I've had the experience when doing that it may have side-effects when booting from a computer that hasn't got Intel graphics (e.g. having Nvidia instead).

So, my question is:
Can anyone who has Nvidia graphics test by adding /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf :
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=121361 (remove fake .gz) then create directory /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ :
Code:
mkdir /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/

And copy the 20-intel.conf to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d , then reboot with changes saved and see if it will boot to the desktop or not.
I can't test this atm.

Thanks !

Fred

I can confirm, it does NOT show the desktop with that file added. In both 32 and 64 bit versions.

Morning Fred !
Can confirm Problems with 20-intel.conf
Have NVIDIA Graphic-Card .
Struggled hard to install Beowolf and Xenial Dog on my (new) Dell Laptop ,nearly gave up .
Just found out by accident that inserting /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf or /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf was the Reason Beowolf and Xenialdog did not boot into X (Desktop) on my Dell Laptop ..
It hangs while booting .
On my (older ) Toshiba 3000 Laptop no such Problems occured.

Same Happened with Xenial Dog .
So i think adding 20-intel.conf by default could lead to ,in some kind of Hardware, OpSys not booting into X (Desktop) .Maybe Nvidia is the reason Don`t know .
Better keep it out IMHO.

Regards

Morning backi !

Thanks for the info, I'm sure now that the intel.conf shouldn't be included.

Fred

Have NVIDIA Graphic-Card .

I have an nvidia graphic card (onboard, that is) also and now I begin to understand why when I entered the desktop, system seems hanged up, but it's not. I guess real reason is neither my mouse nor my keyboard are working, exactly as it happened when I installed nvidia driver in DPup Stretch for the first time (I'm trying DevuanDog-2019-03-29_32-bit).

Not quite sure if we are talking about the same Problem.I can not quite figure out what you are trying to express .

I`ll try to explain .

I installed DevuanDog 'Beowulf' Alpha to an USB Stick ...with no NVIDIA Drivers).
on my Toshiba Laptop Machine (without NVIDIA Card ) it boots fine .

Tried to boot to my Dell Machine with NVIDIA Card used same Usb Stick(DevuanDog 'Beowulf' Alpha...no NVIDIA Drivers) ,which boots fine on my Toshiba ..(with no NVIDIA Card)..
..no Luck ....stuck..hangs....not booting to Desktop .

Reason ::::
Someone in another Thread proposed to put 20-intel.conf into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d and--or /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d .......to solve some Issues with Palemoon.

This 20-intel.conf file located in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d and--or /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d prevented me booting to Desktop (also in Xenial Dog) on my Dell Machine with NVIDIA Card .
Removing that 20-intel.conf solved that Issue .
Now my Dell Machine also booting fine ........

By the way .... i never had Luck to install NVIDIA Driver in DevuanDog 'Beowulf' Alpha until now .

@fredx181:

I ran a live session of your "Beowulf" derivative this evening. I was quite impressed
by the very polished look. The Dogs have come a long way since the young collie
background!

I also enjoyed some jazz and some traditional African music on your DogRadio: that
app is "impeccable!", as we say in French. Smile

Bravo and good continuation!

PostPosted: Thu 16 May 2019, 00:41    Post subject: packit  

I've installed Packit from Synaptics, but it isn't integrated in the filemanager.
Tried adding a Packit.desktop file to /applications, without success.

I do not know anything about mime permissions (?)... any help would be appreciated.

Otherwise, all is well, even VirtualBox (using apt2sfs).

Thanks.

Hi westwest, assuming you mean packit the compression tool from SFR (http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=89211) , see attached deb package (remove fake .gz), named "pack-it" to avoid conflict. Seems to work well, I didn't test much though.
(packit from synaptic is a network commandline tool)
