PostPosted: Wed 15 Sep 2010, 01:35    Post subject: VIA - openchome  

I have Puppylinux 5.1.1 ruining on the OLPC XO-1.5 that has a VIA7 cpu and the VX800/VX820 chipset and I have problems with the openchrome driver.

Neither the default settings nor videowizard work. Modifying xorg.conf produces a usable driver but I have the problem that the camera is turned on all the time.
Even if I specify to " Disable "record" " module an/or " Oprion "I2CDevices" "Bus1" ", to ignore the bus that the camera is on, it is still loading record extension and looks at Bus1, 2 and 3 for I2CDevices.

Where these defaults are defined? How can you over ride them?

Thx

On the one hand it is deprecated but on the other we need the conf file as well


it might be possible to download the source code of the `/sbin/modprobe` binary `which` I thought would be a link to `busybox` and delete/comment the(se) warning messages .... Question

Before going on a trip I had problems keeping the connection on lucid's before 511.
Last advice given was to put SeaMonkey in direct connection to the net, not via the system proxy setting.

Being back I tried first as it was and the connection seemed stable.
Now I installed 511 and the problem is back.

So time to set SeaMonkey to direct connection.

But the problem is still there.

When I look in /etc/resolv.con, the nameserver line is gone.
I issue dhcpcd eth1 (the wireless device) and the connection is ok again.
This repeats itself now.

So apparently the setting direct connect doesn't seem to cure the problem.
This morning I booted again from Lucid. After a while of no activity I lost again the connection. Nameserver entry in /etc/resolv.conf gone again.
But the trick to re-establish the connection with dhcpcd eth1 didn't work.
I had to reboot and redo the connection wizard (SNS) to have my connection back.

HI!!.. Well i tried 5.1 in a Dell Latitude C600 (PIII 750, 256MB Ram, Ati Rage 128), With Puppy 4.3.1, the Xorg config. file was extensive and very complete, i can use a 1024x768 resolution, but with 5.1, i just can get 800x600, with the modules loaded (r128 and DRI), i dont install Xorg_High, because it was just a test, but any idea of why?.. or... if i install Xorg_high it will fix things?...

sorry for my english........Axiz

Hadn`t have had this specific "again" but to delete the first line
#nameserver go in here

and add

nameserver 123.456.78.90 ( your specific DNS )
and perhaps the second ( I`ve got two )

and click "Try Again" at the browser works for me if pupdial doesn't get it to write them to /etc/resolv.conf at first Setup .

Xarchive doesn`t seem to unrpm

there is rpm-wrap.sh at /usr/local/bin/xarchive/wrappers

but it shows a blank page of /root/Downloads/module-init-tools/module-init-tools-3.6-7mdv2010.0.i586.rpm which is

: no output at all

I also couldn`t find anything about "unrpm" at the devx until now

I searched the forum and downloaded roundabout a dozen .pet for .rpm`s -- will take me a while to run them

DotPup packages (files with .pup extension) are an older

install a DotPup package, you must first run the PETget

Question --was not able to find these two too until now .

On my old Inspiron 4000; initially boots to 800x600.
I use "ctrl-alt-backspace".
Type xorgwizard, then probe-1024x768-1024x768x24.
Type xwin.

PostPosted: Wed 15 Sep 2010, 15:13    Post subject:  modprobe 3.11.1 versus older modprobe Versions !!
Subject description: unrpm.undeb.pet works in Puppy 5.1.1 !!
 

Thanks 8-Bit !

your pet seems to run only by commandline and gives some confusing output but it converts the .rpm to .tar.bz2 ...which is easily uncompressed by XArchive .

Now also ./configure and make are working by mounting the 511-devx-sfs at frugal boot.

I mv`ed /sbin/modprobe --version 3.11.1 to /sbin/Backup/ and copied just the `modprobe` binary --version 3.6 to /sbin/ while running and :

Code:
# modprobe --version
module-init-tools version 3.11.1
# modprobe uhci_hcd
WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/.

Code:
# which modprobe
/sbin/modprobe
# modprobe --version
module-init-tools version 3.6
# modprobe uhci_hcd

# lsmod

usbcore                91279  7 uhci_hcd,option,usbserial,usb_storage,usbhid,ohci_hcd

seems to work

I downloaded a modprobe 3.1.2 src from debian and would have to figure it out where to get 3.11.* src versions

PostPosted: Wed 15 Sep 2010, 16:21    Post subject: openchrome, devx  

I tried to compile the openchrome driver from source (xf86-video-openchrome-0.2.904) with lupu_devx_511.sfs and I got
Code:
checking for XVMC... configure: error: Package requirements (x11 xext xvmc) were not met:
No package 'xvmc' found

Are X devel tools in the devx?
Any ideas how to get around this?
