Subject description: music player
 

After adding libsamplerate_DEV-0.1.6-w5.pet and
libsamplerate-0.1.6-w5.pet I was able to compile deadbeef-0.4.2.The
source code for deadbeef is available at sourceforge.net.
Deadbeef is a good music player and also plays audio cds.

Wary has an odd Gparted that insists on leaving 1mb of free space
before every new partition?

With my fussy Intel 845 graphics, the Wary 0.9 2.6.30.5 kernel version has good video with i810 and Xvesa.

The 2.6.35.7 version works properly only with Xvesa (md5sum checked). i810 results first in 5-10 seconds of a normal screen (sometimes with a flickering cursor), then a black screen. On ctrl-alt-backspace, "xwin" (typing blindly, no video) Wary runs normally until an attempt to "exit to prompt", shut down. etc. which gives a black screen (i.e. no visible console) though typed commands function normally, just no video. I made a save file by blindly hitting "enter" to take defaults on shutdown. I realize there are other, more significant problems with this kernel.

One funny bug, likely something simple: for both kernels, Ogle and Mplayer work, but once a DVD is inserted, Ogle runs when Mplayer is selected from the main menu. To use Mplayer, it must be opened before inserting the DVD.

Not complaining, just FYI. My graphics system is so picky; wouldn't want to hold up progress.

You say the sfs is on sda1 purely for boot up but you have still not answered why you cannot put it with the save file on sda2 right from the get go.
Maybe I didn't explain well enough.
The sfs and the save file are on sda2 (/mnt/home)
This has always been the case.

So at first boot, sda1 is taken the lead.
After the save to sda2, sda1 is taken the lead to boot as from CD, but gives control to sda2 to load the save and sfs.

I am not explaining myself clearly enough.

On my XP machine I NEVER use sda1 to boot the sfs from, not even at first boot.

I put the sfs on sda5 (actually in a subdir - but you could leave it at /mnt/home if you must).

At the end of first boot you are asked to create a save file and the default location will be the same as the sfs file.

Of course, grldr and menu.lst is always on sda1 but I don't think we are talking about that.

ICPUG, I see.
Unfortunately, I only have sda1 (ntfs the XP one) and sda2 (fat)
The latter isn't big enough to hold also the puppy files. For the save files I can cope.

I have a external USB HDD, which I could use for the save files, thus freeing space on sda2.

If I could boot from such a external HDD, that would be great, but as far as I understand puppy doesn't permit this.
This external HDD is used only for the moment for data.

Subject description: ati radeon hd 5570
 

I got a new pc and the only puppy that will work on it so far is wary
090 2.6.35.7 and even that can't see the wireless adaptor but it works
with eth0, also works with a usb wireless adaptor by linksys that I
have.
The graphics card is an ati radeon hd 5570 and I downloaded the
ati-driver-installer-10-10-x86.x86_64.run file and after installing
the devx and kernel source sfs files (and renaming depmod and
depmod-FULL) I exited to the prompt and installed the ati driver, that
worked:
# report-video
VIDEO REPORT: Wary Puppy, version 090

Chip description:
oem: ATI ATOMBIOS
product: REDWOOD 01.00

Driver used by Xorg:
#card0driver

Video mode used by Xorg:
Resolution: Depth 24 Depth: "Display"

...the above also recorded in /tmp/report-video
#
I also had a little problem with sound but it's working okay now.
I'm running live with a save file and it's working well, I look
forward to trying the next wary release on it.

edit: I've done everything as above but with wary 070 kernel 2.6.34.1 and it's working well so far.I think it's working better actually.

edit: I running live with a save file wary 092 kernel 2.6.34.6 and the devx is still uploading so I renamed the 090 devx and installed that along with the kernel source sfs for 2.6.34.6 and then exited to the prompt and ran the ati-driver-installer-10-10-x86.x86_64.run file.I saw that the depmod didn't need changing and the driver installed okay.
# report-video
VIDEO REPORT: Wary Puppy, version 092

Chip description:
oem: ATI ATOMBIOS
product: REDWOOD 01.00

Driver used by Xorg:
#card0driver

Video mode used by Xorg:

...the above also recorded in /tmp/report-video
# uname -r
2.6.34.6
#
I will test more but it's working good on this pc so far.

What do you mean by "stable"?

It might just be a matter of compiling a later Via X driver for 092.

If you are in to compiling packages, you can do it yourself. Sources here:

http://www.x.org/releases/individual/driver/

It goes something like this:

# ./configure --prefix=/usr/X11R7 --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu
# make
# new2dir make install

Some driver sources need the xorg-server source, like this:

# ./configure --prefix=/usr/X11R7 --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu --with-xserver-source=/mnt/sdb3/downloads/input080/xorg-server-1.3.0.0

...er, I just noticed that the via X driver hasn't been updated since 2006, and Wary 092 already has the latest. So much for that.

ok I think that the problem is in the xorg server 1.3.0 because with the xorg server 1.4.2 (the same that use Debian Lenny) with the via or openchrome drivers works fine , not crash or fail , works stable. I mean crash when I playing a video and minimize the window and when I maximize again the system crash and goes to command pront.

Installed Firefox (liveCD) but it didn't appear in Menu, even after logging out and xwin back again. But it works from the console. Anyone else? Apologies if it's a known 'feature' or previously reported.

Sage,
Thanks for reporting that, I will fix the package so that it has a menu entry.

So is the stability problem only occurring with mplayer, when you minimise/maximise a video window?

Do you minimise/maximise when video is playing?

Not only with Mplayer is in general with any player that used with xv driver . And is when is playing or paused. WIth X11 driver its stable and not crash with minimise/maximise a video window. But x11 its not scalable.
Also I had try the xorg vesa and feels faster (off course not compare in image quality but..). I dont know why but the xorg vesa driver plays flash online videos faster (I mean not too many freezing's ) .
