Subject description: apparenly inconsequential
 

    Setting up the layered file system...EXT2-fs (loop1): error: ext2_free_blocks: bit already cleared for block 103455


occassionally see this just after: "Loading the 'quirky-100.sfs' main file..." on vt

Took upgrade route from quirky013, which had been upgraded since 006 so it may be pushing the limits. But, no problems so far other than the above message.

NOTE:
I dropped in jwm492 to test: This version solves the problem of a few rare apps that run but do not appear on screen. eg. dillo2.2, maybe yudit.

The libxcb-1.0 pet mentioned on previous page will install to /usr/lib, thus they will have precedence over the libxcb*'s already in /usr/X11R7/lib. That works, but it may be overkill. This pet will provide only the missing lib for a temporary fix. It installs to /usr/X11R7/lib:
(in either case, they should be uninstalled when the standard version is available)

Processor: Intel Celron (Pentium III/ Pentium III Xeon/ Celron)
Memory: 383 M
Audio Adapter: ICH - Intel 82801BA-ICH2

Have checked and used:
Network wizard
Seamonkey
PMusic
Gnome Media player
pupRadio
Pnethood

Haven't checked printing as I don't have a printer hooked up to this computer.

So far everything seems to work great. Seamonkey did crash opening one page on one web site, but it used to do the same thing in 4.3.1. It is something about that particular site and I am used to it.

No hard numbers here, but my feeling is that Quirky is more nimble and responsive than 4.3.1. All in all a great job.

Use the pet from upnorth and NOT the one I mentioned earlier.
I discovered that although the one I recommended did let chat start it broke Geany.
So I uninstalled it and installed this one from upnorth and now both chat and Geany work.

Sorry about that.

Upgrading from Quirky 021 on a multisession DVD-RW to Quirky 100 on a multisession DVD-RW.

I Burned the iso with Pburn in Quirky 021 instead of Burniso2cd, to see how well multisession DVDs burned with Pburn work, then rebooted with the newly burned Quirky 100 DVD in the drive, choosing to "save to the CD." This has always worked before as a way to upgrade a multisession Puppy to a new version. It worked this time too, but with a hitch. The screen gave the usual message that it was saving the session to the first track of the new DVD, and the drive light indicated activity. Usually that would be the end of it but after the drive light went out the screen said it was time for a new disk or something. Figuring that everything I needed from Quirky 021 had been correctly saved to the newly burned Quirky 100 DVD, I held the start button in to force the computer to turn off, then rebooted. Everything was as it should be. All my settings and installed programs from Quirky 021 had been transferred to the new Quirky 100 multisession DVD-RW.

I'll burn the next Quirky iso with Burniso2cd, to see if the same thing happens.

Seamonkey 1.1.18??? If Quirky is an experimental version, why are we working with an old version of Seamonkey? So then, is Quirky gonna be like Debian Lenny (stable)? Wouldn't it be better, more progressive to work on integrating Seamonkey 2.x?

Most likely it is about size. He wants a certain size to help those living far from the station.

I know such do matters. A relative lived two kilometers outside of my hometown and they relied on expensive Mobile Cell phone for internet. VEry expensive compared to landline DSL or ppoe Modem and I am lucky living close to a station that have fiber so me have some 50MB line most of the time.

But maybe Barry also like the Seamonkey.

Deal with it I guess he would say. I would prefer we had latest Firefox so every newbie knew what to do from scratch.

in Lupu you can chose which browser to use. That is the preferred way to me. To each their own pref.

How much larger is SM 2.x than SM 1.1.18? I already reported that SM 1.1.18 does not render all the features on the new YT video page.

No sound at live boot with Intel 82801H integrated audio card in my Acer Extensa 5220. There was no problem with 4.0, 4.1, 4.2 or 4.3? Haven't found any other issues, the gnome-mplayer very impressive

I believe Barry has stated that the newest seamonkey is just way to buggy.

Re if one can remove delete erase seamonkey or not?

Edit

I received a PM describing how it should be done. So not sure what those that are skeptical talks about. As I remember it it was about dependencies for certain other progs that made use of same libs.

( thanks gjuhasz for your post below mine )


Some say it is possible and others indicate it is not?

I don't think you can remove Seamonkey, but Firefox will replace it as the default browser.


another that is skeptical.

Some other programs won't work if you remove SeaMonkey.


So my take on this is that I want Barry or some other dev to describe how it can be done safely to the newbie so they have a choice of browser or that Q1 go the Lupu route so seamonkey iis a choice from first minute and not installed from scratch.

Although Seamonkey 1.1.18 is not the "defaultbrowser", it is preinstalled in Lupu. Invoke it by typing "seamonkey" in a terminal.

Acer Aspire One-

Ran as live USB, created save file. Decided to frugal install, booted, but it obviously did not read the save file.

Frugal installed, was invited to create save file, did so.

Booted again, but still had to enter language etc. Looked for save file, found two- one in Puppy 100 folder, one outside. Deleted the outside file, and all ok since then.

Major problem: my Canon printer usually uses Canon driver downloaded from Kyoto University, but it won't work on Quirky. Having to use Gutenprint equivalent, but black comes out grey with that.

The driver worked on every Puppy that I've tried since 2.17, so I know what it needs in the way of lib files and symlinks- maybe it's getting a bit too old in some other way?
