I can't compile the latest drm-intel modules (i830 compiled, loaded and untested. i915 refuses to compile) for 2.6.27.5. I ended with the whole 2.6.29rc2 source tree when downloading drm-intel


Hey Wow,

Oh well thanks for even trying. Like you say, you're just giving me a hand so I appreciate it very much! Thanks for all your effort. Thanks Mark as well for helping me too. Maybe one day something will work out and I'll be able to OpenGL and 3D acceleration on this laptop.

Thanks again guys!

I running Ubuntu kernel 2.6.28-8.21 (2.6.28 + ubuntu patches), is has squashfs, aufs, unionfs and more 3rd party drivers built in, all I need to do now is to increase "min loop devices" number, patch squashfs-lzma, apply the loglevel patch, remove utf8 warning for vfat filesystems, rebuild a new initrd.gz file, pack this kernel in puppy-unleashed format and share a new ISO.

BUGFIX: dougal's xkbconfigmanager

Now works on Xorg-7.4, I replaced all calls to /etc/X11/xkb/rules/xorg.lst with /etc/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.lst

Installation:
- Install xkbconfigmanager-evdev.pet
- Open /root/.xinitrd with a text editor and replace:
Code:
#wow: (custom 4.11 puplet)fix keyboard layout (Xorg 7.4)
setxkbmap -layout `cat /etc/keymap | cut -f1 -d.`

with
Code:
XkbApplyNow


Keyboard layouts(Xorg-7.4) are defined as HAL rules(US by default), thats why I use XkbApplyNow to read and apply keyboard layouts from xorg.conf file.

great news, so I will try to add it to newyearspup next weekend, if it is ready then.
If not yet, I'll try to sort out more bugs (which I must do in any case. Rolling Eyes )

PostPosted: Wed 18 Feb 2009, 21:52    Post subject: I'll use this kernel in my next iso  

Unnamed puplet rev 1.1 coming soon...

Only for developers...

Linux kernel 2.6.28.5
2.6.28 + Ubuntu 8.21 patches, i646 kernel, SMP, Hyperthreading, more joystick drivers, ForceFeedback, 99 loop devices, vfat partitions use UTF-8 by default, SquashFS-LZMA 3.4

2.6.28.5_wow-i686.tar.bz2 for puppy-unleashed

Extract to puppy-unleashed/kernels
Add nls_utf8, nls_cp850 modules to initrd/lib/modules/kernel/fs/nls
Edit your initrd/init script to load nls_utf8, nls_cp850 ("modprobe nls_utf8" instead of "modprobe nls_iso8859-1", etc)

Patched kernel source:
[kernel-src-2.6.28.5patched.zip] sfs and md5sum inside, packed with SquashFS-LZMA-3.4

Test iso? friday/saturday I'm still adding MU's bugfixes, more apps and few new features. It's mostly a bugfix release.
Which apps and features?
Apps: video converter, newer ffmpeg, scrot (screenshots), tabble (launcher), latest murrine engine, more murrine themes, lxshortcut, latest pmusic, latest pfind, latest pburn, transset-df, and more
Features: Sound Theme support, customized openbox menu (clasic Puppy Menu, XDG Menu, quicklaunch, toggle compositing, added a menu to set effects level(xcompmgr), toggle/edit/reload conky, etc.) , mouse bindings to set window transparency, and more

PostPosted: Sat 21 Feb 2009, 15:53    Post subject: maybe next monday  

I forgot to update Mesa, fuse and ntfs-3g, drivers for ATI and Intel gpus, xf86-video-nouveau (OpenSource nVidia driver). Also need to write an script to switch between "eye candy" and "performance" modes, every time that I boot my USB key on older pc's (not that old really: SIS chipset, 256MB RAM, Celeron 2 Ghz, without linux swap, etc.) I must disable xcompmgr, screenlets and use another gtk theme to speed up things.

Maybe, but things like proprietary drivers must be recompiled and reinstalled to be compatible with the new kernel.

I dual boot frugal installs of unnamed pup and newyearspup. I have a 2 gig swap partiton (sda2) that Mark's pup will mount and use but unnamed pup will not use it. Unable to mount. I am open to suggestions.

I think I added no code to automount swap Shocked
I just added the automount of "normal" partitions, it is activated /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit, line 361:

Code:
/etc/init.d/muppyquickmountmountall forcestart



To check it, you could deactivate it in "preferences" - "Desktopoptions" - "widgets and shadows" - "automount".
Then partitions should not be monted at startup.
But it should have no effect concerning swap.
Can you confirm this?

Mark

No that has no effect. The swap file is mounted long before your automount -- you can see it activated shortly after the kernel loads the disk drivers. Would it have anything to do with the way you changed the drives to mount to "mnt" instead of "media"?

no, /media is only used by muppyquickmount, if it is explicitly activated, and for CDROM/DVD drives.
But this just happens in Muppyquickmount itself.
It should not modify the standard configuration files, so it should have no effect on swap.

Is your swap located on a USB-drive?
I applied a change in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit to force to load the usb-drivers (like ehci_hcd).
around line 216:

Code:
#note, if initrd then usb-storage will have already loaded...
if [ "$PCIUSB" != "" ];then #this may be slow to respond.
 echo -n " usb"  >/dev/console
#MU
modprobe ohci_hcd
modprobe ehci_hcd
modprobe uhci_hcd


hmmm.. but this happens AFTER swap is activated, and only if you have a PCMCIA USB device.
So there must be another reason.

But it might have to do with USB, maybe I forgot about a change I added in initrd.gz.
I had made some changes before trying to speed up the startup, though I later rejected my changes again, as far as I see it.

if you have a frugal installation, try to replace wows initrd.gz with mine.

If swap works then, there must be a slight change I made inside it.
This would help to find the difference.
