I think you may have tried to include the entire gpicview source tar in the build. I've just looked at the tar and there is a stripped binary in the top level of it. I have just attached a gzipped binary to the gpicview_slideshow as well. Assuming there are no reported problems I will create a pet and a NLS pet in time for the next release.

Yes, there were source files in the build when unpacked to my Unleashed tree. I must admit that I was so pressed I didn't go looking for a working binary - my bad, sorry. Embarassed I'll revisit for the next release. The size looks much better now it's been isolated. Thanks, mate.

As the Flash Chess goes, Its not a free application, you need to get their permission and usually they charge fees.

I also found that flash game being hosted some place else and when I downloaded it, it was only 79kb extracted. I don't know why it was 1MB?
anyways you might want to ask them about Linux and if its ok to use the flash chess game.

When I downloaded it I was pretty sure it said free for non-commercial use. I think we qualify. Wink

That said, I will go looking again just to be on the safe side. Can you upload the smaller version so I can include it if allowed? Thanks, Jeff.

PostPosted: Thu 29 Jan 2009, 17:14    Post subject: Not booting  

Hi,

Since i am not seeing anyone else reporting a problem this may very well be a bug on my part with the iso burn, but I have tried burning two discs from the iso that had the correct md5sum and when I boot it goes right past the disc and into my grub menu, as if the disc is not there.
But the disc and it's contents is easily accessible when mounted from within puppy 4.1.2 that I have installed on my laptop.
I checked my bios again, just to be sure, and it is correct, the CD boots before the HDD.

I have booted numerous versions of puppy from the discs with this computer and never run into this problem before.
In the past when I get a bad burn I get it at least trying to boot and then get some sort of kernel panic.

I also tried the disc on my desktop computer that also has puppy 4.1.2 on it (this is on my laptop) and the same thing happed, it went right to my grub menu as if the disc was not there.
Looking in the disc when mounted I have the following files;

boot.msg
help.msg
initrd.gz
logo.16
pup_420.sfs
syslinux.cfg
vmlinuz

and the content of the syslinux.cfg

Quote:
default puppy
display boot.msg
prompt 1
timeout 80

F1 boot.msg
F2 help.msg

label puppy
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.gz pmedia=cd


I will try to download another iso and burn another disc tomorrow, but I have to go to work now.

I am fairly new to Puppy and Linux, but I will help in anyway I can by testing and reporting bugs, even if I don't know how to fix them. Smile

Is it possible to have a good md5sum and the burn go fine and still have a bad disc?
I suppose I would think it is, but I just wanted to be sure it was just me and not the iso.

Thanks,
Tom B.

It is my understanding that ttuuxxx has made significant modification to the source code of the 1.5 series of Firefox in order to create FirePup. Shouldn't we post his source code (or a patch) to comply with the GPL?

Tom B.

I can confirm this. Checksums matched and burn verified, but disk is not seen as bootable. What was that about Rome? Wink.

Hi

Just put 4.2a2 on my 5yr old laptop - runs fine frugal
in 96mb ram (256mb swap) 1ghz celeron proc.

Alpha1 runs very well on an even older midi PC - full install
91mb ram (200mb swap) 400mhz celeron proc.
Am sure Alpha2 will be just fine too.

Posting this from 4.2a2 now - FirePup feels fast - nice.
Jump-off page defaults to netsurf (did not launch firepup)
Will try prefs and see if that changes default browser to FirePup.

Next will be a frugal install on my new EeePc 701SD booting from
USB stick and from SD card.

Again - many thanks and much appreciation to all for doing what you do to make Puppy Linux the best OS in the world.

Best regards - Ray

WhoDo
as flash games goes
Flash chess pet package is the same size 49KB so I uploaded the original pet.
ACE-Solitaire.pet 22KB is one of best polished Solitaire games going, you can look at the thread http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=37996&sid=ea6b70cd1a423466bf348e3bf9314cb1
Before adding it, I'll contact the developers and ask permissions. But its really worth trying out.

I have the same problem. Evil or Very Mad
My disk wont boot either. I tried several disks several times.

I should note that 4.2 alpha 1 worked fine.

I have just finished downloading the alpha2 iso. It was painfully slow and must have taken over 2 hours!
Checksum is OK but I tried 2 burns and the CD is not recognised as bootable. Anyone else had this problem?

This is possible, although it shouldn't be the case. I ran out of CD's to do a test burn with and the iso was created with Isomaster rather than the createpuppy script in Unleashed which is currently broken.

Use Isomaster in your current Puppy to extract the contents of the iso and check the syslinux.cfg file to ensure that pmedia=cd is set correctly. Then reburn as a bootable LiveCD or simply use the vmlinuz, initrd.gz and pup_420.sfs files to create a frugal install in your existing partition.

Remember, this is an alpha and intended for testing - not daily use.

I hope that helps.


Thanks for the reply WhoDo. Don't worry - I appreciate that it is an alpha.
Here are the contents of syslinux.cfg as it appears in the downloaded iso :
Code:

default puppy
display boot.msg
prompt 1
timeout 80

F1 boot.msg
F2 help.msg

label puppy
kernel vmlinuz
append initrd=initrd.gz pmedia=cd


Is that what should be included?

@WhoDo

Booting problem with the cd might be a problem of isomaster. Some people (me too) have had problems to 'remaster' a puppy-iso (what means to substitute pup_***.sfs) with isomaster. maybe the actual problem is just another bug.

cheers

technosaurus your a pain in the butt asking for that twice now, I'm uploading the original redhat security updated 1.5, And I'll supply the links 2 the other mozilla hosted sources that I used. Mix them together after compiling them all the same, add Fasterfox, FlashBlock, Chatzilla, and a theme, make adjust what you can after they are compiled and you'll have FirePup
ttuuxxx

Ps I didn't modify any of the sources, I modified the packages after they were compiled. If you want to see my modifications they are part of FirePup. I feel like i'm being audited and I DON'T LIKE IT !! Mad
