On my PC it won't auto power-off [does on BoxPup & Puppy 4.2.1-rc3], so it's necessary for me to manually use the off switch once it reports that the system has halted.

Subject description: which OpenGL for pup4.3beta2...?
 

Hi,
on pup4.3beta2 frugall
I installed
xorg_xorg_full_dri-7.3.pet
to get OpenGL and subsequently instal, let us say ....MU's GoogleEarth sfs file.
To see if OpenGL was running I did this:

on pup4.3b2 + xorg.xorg-7.3-full-dri.pet
Code:

# glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: No
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.2

then no working OpenGL using that pet.
Cheers
Charlie

My wifi network misses the firmware. I have found that, when included in
/lib/firmware, the wireless network works properly. I include the firmware attached here.
It needs to be unzipped before copied to /lib/firmware directory.
I hope that it can be included in puppy 4.3.

I have the same exact problem and it is present in both beta1 and beta2.

I have on older pentium3.
It goes through the shut down and ends in white text on the screen saying "system halted" and I then push the power button once to turn it off.

Hi charlie6:

Quote:
I installed
xorg_xorg_full_dri-7.3.pet

I am using a manual frugal install and my computer has an ATI 9550 graphic card.

DRI is working and I did not installed the full xorg, but the lesser xorg_xorg_dri-7.3-1 pet package plus the file r300_dri.so from the full package, for just my card. If I install the full dri pet, it always gives a problem, I believe it overwrites some files incorrectly in my /usr/X11R7/bin area.

Code:
  # glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.2


I started over with a fresh backup, save file.

PostPosted: Thu 10 Sep 2009, 17:23    Post subject: Tray Volume Control  

One more minor problem is my motherboard's on-board sound only uses PCM and the old absvolume in the tray, controls the Master volume only. The solution was to compile and put in a newer AbsVolume-4.3, replacing Puppy's from their site. This one uses PCM. Then I just started it in /root/.xinitrc with the command "absvolume &" only. It is not as fancy, but, works.

Note to anyone wanting to compile their own kernel (and Barry) -
the lzma compression utility is required at the last stage of the kernel image compression, but Puppy 4.3b2's version of lzma will fail, since it does not recognise the "9" and "c" switches of the build script.

In fact, none of the official LZMA SDK versions from
http://www.7-zip.org/download.html
will work this way.

Instead you need the unofficial LZMA Utils package from
http://tukaani.org/lzma/

Unfortunately, this is an issue that has to be taken up with the kernel developers.

The kernel has a configure option to handle shutdown quirks of particular hardware, and I enabled that. However, recent kernels do not shutdown all the old PCs that once did shutdown.

Um, no it doesn't fail. I compiled the 2.6.30.5 kernel and it did get lzma compressed, 1978KB, compared with the 2.6.29.6 kernel at 2320KB.

That was a full hd installation, of pup 4.3beta1 I think.

lzma 4.32.0beta3 Copyright (C) 2006 Ville Koskinen
Based on LZMA SDK 4.43 Copyright (C) 1999-2006 Igor Pavlov

Usage: lzma [flags and input files in any order]
-c --stdout output to standard output
-d --decompress force decompression
-z --compress force compression
-k --keep keep (don't delete) input files
-f --force force overwrite of output file and compress links
-t --test test compressed file integrity
-S .suf --suffix .suf use suffix .suf on compressed files
-q --quiet suppress error messages
-v --verbose be verbose
-h --help print this message
-L --license display the license information
-V --version display version numbers of LZMA SDK and lzma
-1 .. -2 fast compression
-3 .. -9 good to excellent compression. -7 is the default.
--fast alias for -1
--best alias for -9 (usually *not* what you want)

my card is nvidia GeForce 6200 se
I installed xorg_xorg_dri-7.3-1 pet package plus the file nv_drv.so (which I suppose to suit my card) and place nv_drv.so in
/usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/drivers folder.
Restarted and glxinfo answered again
Code:
direct rendering: No

I stay puzzled...

ps: have previously uninstalled the full xorg...and restarted.

cheers
charlie
