PostPosted: Wed 11 Feb 2009, 19:43    Post subject: mounting a vfat partition on a usb connected HDD.  

Wow, already quite some pages on a short time.

I have a 320 GB usb connected HDD.
part 1 74GB vfat, part 2 74GB ext partition (XP with extifs), part 3, ntfs 26GB
part 4 10GB ext.

In XP with the ext2ifs support no problems to address the ext partitions.

With alpha 4.20, I can address all partitions except the vfat one.
A very annoying fact. (In fact I realize now, that the same problem was there already from alpha one on)
No problems with 4.1.2

Is there hope for a solution?

The Internet Connect Wizard doesn't seem to be as good as on any of the puppies I have used before.

Clicked on Connect to get the ICWiz.
Selected LAN and it recognised my ethernet (Realtek RTL8139) as needing the 8139too driver. Same as other puppies.

Test eth0 said puppy can find live network
but Auto DHCP failed to configure.
Had to load the 8139too driver the first time around.

But Auto DHCP still continues to fail.

A definite regression. Automatically recognising a Lan connection on booting is quite a basic requirement these days.

Its a shame then that as a pet 1308kb compared to 104kb will probably never do. I don't think we could ever justify that amount of space for 1 lib to change audio that much. Maybe I'll contact the developer and see if he has anything smaller in the future.

The ICW hasn't changed from Puppy 4.1.2 - have you used that one before? The Realtek driver may have. There was also a post from tempestuous in re that driver in the Alpha3 thread.

Dave I appreciate that you are only trying to help but cluttering this thread with reports of bugs that have already been notified as fixed, or for which the bug is already well documented is doing no-one any favours, least of all me. Please check related threads before posting here. Thanks, mate.

No problems with 4.1.2

There is always "hope" Béèm. I'll look into it.

Have you tried the murrine gtk2 engine and themes or one of the Streamtuners?? I'm back on cups now Smile nice to take a break and mess around with things, also Been talking to the developer of libsamplerate and he has informed me that the next version will be better than libsamplerate-0.1.6, faster and smaller, which is good.

Hello WhoDo.

1. My apologies that I missed or forgot about the fix for Pmount.
I _have_ read through everyone of the 829 messages on 58 pages of 4.2 "bugs and fixes." But whilst I know that you are completely immersed in this project, and I am sure you have copious notes on everything, please understand that mere mortals can sometimes make mistakes.

There was also a post from tempestuous in re that driver in the Alpha3 thread.


So I searched all 829 messages for anything tempestuous has written and also searched his other messages since alpha-1 was released but I can't find anything relevant. He did write in the alpha-3 bug thread about the 8187 wifi driver but that's a long way off the 8139 ethernet driver of mine. Of course I could be wrong again?

Yes I have used (and still have installed to test) 4.1.2 and NOP (based on 4.1.2) and 4.1.1 and 4.0 and, as I said, I have never had a problem getting AutoMount to work before. Until alpha-4. Alphas 1 to 3 were also fine. All that on the same PC.

As I said, it works okay issuing a static IP so sounds more to me like a networking wiz issue rather than a driver so I'll see what Dougal's threads may bring up.

Thanks for that mate.
Yes I was only trying to help. Apologies again that I made an error over the Pmount bug.
I still think Automount on ICW is not working on alpha-4 on my install. Treat that as a bug or as a waste of your time. It's your call.

However to say I am cluttering the thread with reports is just hyperbole and not at all encouraging if you want folk to contribute. They were made in the genuine spirit of contributing bug reports which certainly can't be said for many of the 829 messages on these "Bugs and Fixes" threads discussing for example the pros and cons of icewm versus jwm. Clutter? Or is it one rule for some and another for all else?

Dave
