Sub_title: Reports, tests, bugs
 

This is the 'standard' Puppy, version 4.1beta with 2.6.25.16 kernel. Updated release notes are in the live-CD. Get it from here:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/test/puppy-4.1-beta/

Note, due to the roll-back of ffmpeg and xine-lib, the devx_408.sfs is different from devx_407.sfs.

If you have tested 4.1retro-beta, beware that Puppy will have copied pup_408.sfs to the hard drive (even if you declined when asked about that at shutdown), so you have to delete that file first -- otherwise you'll get a kernel panic.

Thanks Eric. I downloaded from Internode and it very fast especially if you are in Australia. It only took about two minutes.

BarryK if you see this, 408 works fine with my keyboard. It does not have the same problem of not recognising the keyboard as 406 & 407 did. I haven't done much testing yet but so far no problems.

Works with K2.6.21.7
Does not work with K2.6.25.16

nic2109 has directed our attention to this site in search of possible 4.1 backgrounds. There's plenty of high quality stuff here.

For any problems with the Network Wizard, kindly post to Dougal's forum thread here:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=31522

Supply as much information as possible. We especially need to know if your network interface did work on an earlier Puppy. What driver is loading, what choices are you getting in the Wizard, what error messages.

You might also want to look in /tmp/bootsysinit.log and /var/log/messages -- see if there is any error message that might be appropriate.

Pburn locks up when trying to burn an audio CD. I have to control-alt-delete to reset.
I have one usb optical dvd drive for reading and burning, Set-up drives only shows cdrom reader (dev/sro) and default burner (/dev/sro). When dvd reader is chosen (/dev/sro) it is not retained after the wizard is closed.

I did not have this problem with alpha 6 & 7.

Pmusic seems to want to continue playing after shutting it down.

I don't know what info would be needed to trouble shoot these issues.

All other aspects of beta1 seem to be working. Very Happy

Full install on a freshly formatted ext2 partition with only small windows and a swap partitions.

Pentium dual core

Deleted SFS as recommended in Barrys blog entry
I found a [[NRI or MRI error message]] when it got to keyboard selection
However it offered to continue . . .
The desktop appeared but keyboard and mouse locked - back to retro version beta for me which is working OK

This is strange !!!!
The CD must be ejected and reloaded before before mounting shows recent burnt datas.

In example I burn my Pburn directory to the CD already containing Pbackup directory. Here's the details:
:
# mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /mnt/sr0 2> /dev/null
# ls /mnt/sr0
pbackup
# umount /dev/sr0
#
#
# genisoimage -R -o "/tmp.iso" -C 14059,23498 -M /dev/sr0 -graft-points "pburn"="/mnt/sda6/prioritet 1/privat/prg/bash/pburn"
# ...
# wodim -multi -tao -v dev=/dev/sr0 "/tmp.iso"
# ...
#
#
# mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /mnt/sr0 2> /dev/null
# ls /mnt/sr0
pbackup
# umount /dev/sr0
# eject
# mount -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /mnt/sr0 2> /dev/null
# ls /mnt/sr0
pbackup pburn
It's very hard for Pbackup and Pburn (and possible others) to verify burnt datas because of this.
The bug is still around.
It would be handy to know if this is supposed to be fixed before final.
If not, I must rewrite Pbackup and Pburn to avoid this issue.

Never liked PMount, but its behaviour has become really weird in the last few iterations. Now, when mounting the liveCD, with as much as 384Mb main memory, then unmounting it again, the tray is ejected and immediately re-closes. If 384Mb is insufficient for a compact distro then there really isn't much hope? If this happens with 64Mb, fair enough.

MSI Wind U100 Bios 1.07:

"Clocksource tsc unstable"
Allways a constant shift of 8 hour forward and then backward during boot up.

var/log/messages:

Sep 13 09:18:34 (none) syslog.info syslogd exiting
*** next line: first 8 hour time shift:

Sep 13 09:19:40 dhcpcd[4353]: wlan0: dhcpcd not running
Sep 13 09:19:47 dhcpcd[4485]: wlan0: dhcpcd not running

It is not a question of ndisrapper, because whithout ndiswrapper it happens also in the same booting phase.
And it is not random: every boot, same boot phase and always 8 hours timeshift forward and then backward....

More on this intermittent keyboard mouse problem.
I had suspected the graphic card. Sage kindly sent me a bog standard card - same problem. So not the graphics card - back to the kernel as culprit theory (retro works)

A different message came up when trying to select the locale (not every time)
Quote:
Bug: recent printk recursion!

this is a kernel test from what little I could understand

By plugging in a USB mouse I can get a 'jerking' sort of usage
But the keyboard is frozen

rox - open with - mtpaint

Symlink points to /usr/local/bin/mtpaint while the correct is /usr/bin/mtpaint

I'm sitting here, working on the next major release of Pburn, and yet another time, I have trouble with discs that needs to be reloaded before the status changes. Now it is a new feature that blanks disc if needed during media check. But since Puppy won't detect that the disc is recent blanked, Pburn builds wrong burning command.

I really hope that this will be solved for the final release.
Sigmund

Sub_title: Acer Aspire One stange interference
 

From:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1337949085&t=31298&start=30


Quote:
I found that if there is an SD card in the slot, booting 4.07 get stuck at "loading kernel...keyboard". If there is no SD card plugged in, booting is fine.

My work around is to temporary pull the card out before I boot, and reinsert after booting is completed.


The same happens in the Acer Aspire One with the beta version.
