I have been working on DVD mutli-sessions on the last few versions. I could not get 1.05rc to work on regular CD burned as multi-session. Is it me or is it somethig new? Confused


I haven't touched any of the multi-session stuff since 1.0.4. Don't recall any changes anyway Confused

I've got it on my to-do list to take a look at you dvd mods.
Probably could do something with the burniso2cd script also, well, the createpuppyonline (PCCC remaster cd script) also, as they all use cdrecord.

I hope that you can figure out what is the problem!

According to the Wireless Wizard, no, it has to be manually downloaded (it says from the Download area but that is incorrect, it comes from www.nstsoftware.com)

Note: One must remove the wireless nic one had dreamed might be autodetected and insert a wired nic, then reboot so it may be detected.

Another Wireless Wizard oversight is to specify that Perl needs to be acquired via PupGet ... and if one forgets to have the wired nic in place for that it gets all confused and the computer needs to be rebooted.

Once Perl has been loaded (I am guessing that needs to happen *after* usr_devx.sfs 42M I think has been downloaded to /mnt/home/) then one needs to copy the XP driver folder to /mnt/home/

Note: MUT needs to be run to mount the CD drive

One is left to guess which of the many .inf files may be the correct one. I tried three and got

"lo no wireless extensions"
"hi no wireless extensions"

until the third try when I got only

"lo no wireless extensions"

Run_WAG xmessage displayed:

not using PCMCIA

module ndiswrapper running
dhcpcd not running
wifi-beta not installed

could not find interface in /proc/net/wireless
ap test failure
no internet ping test

no wireless networks detected
error when scanning

No lights on my wireless modem unlike 1.0.4 so I am not sure what is wrong.

Not sure where to go from here.

edoc, thanks for your answer, but usr_devx.sfs does not have anything to do with the wireless wizard. It is the development package that was released as a saparate file for 1.0.5 alpha.

After I got home and booted 1.0.5rc, I found that it contains the development utilities and libraries.

I am still amazed with Barry's ability to pack all that on 59 MB.

The Wireless Wizard requires it for setting up ndiswrapper. It is specified in Step 1.

Still wish I could figure out why the wireless card is recognized under 1.0.4 and not under 1.0.5RC

I never installed perl, and ndiswrapper worked fine, so that tells me that perl comes in the dev package. Just so you all know.

Hmmm. Guess one of the 1.0.5 Full Release needs is clarified text in the instructions.

Any ideas what may have changed that would allow a wired PCMCIA nic to be recognized but a wireless nic to not?

The wireless works under 1.0.4 but something is turning off access to it during boot up in 1.0.5RC

Sigh ... well, too late tonight, perhaps later tomorrow after church, etc.

The help files don't seem to work.

Other than that, everything seems fine. I've done a small remastering already, but I don't have any CD-RW's with me, so I can't test yet Wink

Sorry to not have been here sooner. I don't have an internet connection at home at the moment...

I'm glad people like jwmConfigMgr. I'm working on a few improvements for the next release.

I should let you know that the JWM theme dotpups I posted a while ago won't work with this version simply because the dotpup installs them to a different directory. I will post some more dotpups with themes ASAP.

WAG has a few issues with 1.0.5, mainly from the bash/ash combo. For example, the root user test always fails. I've got a fix worked out.

Also, the Wireless Wizard never configures WAG. This should be easy to fix. The wizard needs to test /usr/local/WAG/wag-conf for "CARDSOC=". If it fails, then run the socket-test script.

Sorry if this is a repeat, but it didn't turn up on a forum search. The option 2 hard drive install fails to copy the /usr folder. There is just a symlink to /.usr_cram, which breaks the moment it's no longer in ramdisk.

Great news!

I will then stop thrashing about trying to figure it out ... until you post the fix.

I just tried a bunch of drivers for my Buffalo G54 (Broadcom WLI-CB-G54A) PCMCIA wireless nic but it still doesn't respond -- no light at all on the card.

Works fine under 1.0.4

What would deny power to the wireless card? The wired PCMCIA card in the same slot. both under 1.0.5RC, works fine.

Thanks! doc

2. When I used PupGet package manager to download 'fvwm95-2.0.43f', I get a warning that I need 'libc.so.5'. Where does one get that library package? It is not in the list.

Try this:
# cd /lib
# ln -s libc-2.3.4.so libc.so.5

...let us know if it works!

Note, as you already have fvwm95 pupget installed, you can run pupget package
manager and choose to check dependencies of an installed pkg. Do that after
creating the above link.

Most of all, does fvwm95 work?

Countdown to Friday guys!
Can you figure out the changes to the Wireless Wizard and WAG, to get them to work nicely, and post them?
Setting this deadline, though self-imposed, have got rather a lot to do in a very short time, so any help much appreciated.

Attempted to burn a Puppy CD with burniso2cd. Everything appeared to go fine, no error messages, but the CD was ejected immediately after the "burn" button was clicked, while a message said that it was successfully burned. I tried twice, with the same results both times, before I gave up and used gcombust instead.

The iso I was attemting to burn was in a NTFS partition, which I had mounted with MUT.

Hi.

- switching to 1280x1024 screen resolution makes my 17"TFT complaining
about non standard refresh rates and it goes into a save mode. This was an
issue already with 1.0.5a2. 1.0.4 didn't had that problem!!
1024x768 works fine.

- MUT crashes when a PC doesn't has a floppy drive?! floppy is disabled
in bios...

- Mozilla Mail works fine.- ok

BarryK. The whole reason for a beta/release candidate version is, to get as much as possible errors out of it before release Smile
So in my opinion, there is no need to release 1.0.5 on a fixed date, even when knowing that there are some known issues...
I would rather vote to solve the known issues and then release 1.0.5!

Thanks, Peter
