Subject description: Heh heh, this time the final beta
 

Announcement:

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=01964

Repeating the announcement here:

I think that this will be the last beta -- the next will be an RC (Release Candidate).

Download from here:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/quirky/wary-098/

Md5sums:
d377d65d8e02a79857528bd88b17a1f2 wary-096.iso___wary-098.iso.delta
4847e15e1f4714bd66307a8dcfec0734 wary-098.iso
4667b91f106d8ae948f95cdb3bc22939 wary_devx_096.sfs___wary_devx_098.sfs.delta
186f492015f493aa18b503b27dced419 wary_devx_098.sfs


If you are on dialup and already have downloaded Wary 096, good news as the .delta files are only 6.4MB and 1.3MB. If you have Wary 094, you can download the .delta files to upgrade to 096, then to 098.

The last-minute fixes in the unofficial 097 have been important, and 098 is looking good!

Note, this pup has also been built with most-needed modules inside wary_098.sfs, so most people can throw away the zw098114.sfs file.

Feedback most welcome...

Is this really the last beta, or am I being overly optimistic?...
Of course, we don't have to have perfection to consider it release-quality. Some things are going to be on-going long term projects to get right, such as our analog/3G modem setup. So, is this pup close enough to general usability for the next to be an RC?...

Fresh manual frugal install of Wary 098 on my main Linux box.

On initial boot there was working internet (wired dsl) and sound "woof-woof" as well as the correct 1440x900 screen resolution.Everything was persistent after a reboot.

Installed the Firefox 3.6.9 pet,rebooted and working fine.

The only little glitch is .....the Video Upgrade Wizard doesn't download the drivers and pops up a message the pet didn't install.Guess I'll just go to the repo... Laughing


VIDEO REPORT: Wary Puppy, version 098

Chip description:
oem: NVidia
product: NV18 () Board Chip Rev A2

James,

If you haven't rebooted, or boot again pfix=ram, try the video-upgrade again and post the contents of /tmp/petupgradevideo.sh.

At the top it should have "PET=$1". There is another file, /tmp/vuw_nvidia_pkg which I think has the driver name.. check that.

I'll test in a mo

Cheers

Ok, back and the nvidia driver is downloading fine for me.. unfortunately it will probably crash for me but that's ok, I have backup Wink

Yes installs just fine, I know that because I get nvidia entry in the menu, but the driver crashes the system for me so I use the 260.* driver I posted in the drivers section.

I'm on an Intel box now but video-upgrade won't download on it either.


PET="$1" #ex: xorg_upgrade_intel-2.10.0-w5.pet
cd /root
rxvt -bg yellow -e wget http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/quirky/pet_packages-wary5/$PET
petget /root/$PET
rm -f /root/$PET
PKGBASE="`basename $PET .pet`"
if [ ! -f /root/.packages/$PKGBASE.files ];then
xmessage -bg pink -center "Sorry, something went wrong, package is not installed"
fi


I'll boot up the Nvidia box pfix=ram in just a few minutes.

I'm running 098 from a 4gb flash drive.
I have sound but retrovol is still x'ed out so I change volume by using
the remote of my speaker system.
I used the ati pet, then exited to the prompt and entered "aticonfig
--initial" then "xwin" to get back to the desktop.Hardware acceleration
is working.
I'm afraid if I run the alsa sound wizard it will wreck the sound
altogether so I'm sticking with things the way they are...changed my
mind and ran it, got woof woof and still have sound but retrovol is
still x'ed out and doesn't work.
But this computer is new and Wary works *very* well on it Smile
Thanks

Hmmm, weird James... that message from petget usually happens when there's a corrupt pet... did wget go through the motions at all? (Normally takes a couple of minutes for me, though I rarely get ibiblio any faster than 100k/s)

I grabbed the same pet when I debugged the vid-wiz last night in 097 on my old p3 with nvidia vanta card, it worked perfectly.

Cheers

PostPosted: Sun 14 Nov 2010, 00:03    Post subject: NVIDIA driver 265 failed  

Thanks the Warry-098.

Tried on my PC with NVIDIA Geforce 8800GTX.
First boot, nv or vesa i am not sure, got 1200x1048x24.
Installed nvidia-265 driver from the Video Upgrade Wizard.
Down to console, xorgwizard, chose nvidia, select 1200x1048x24, test.
After 'Test now', the PC freezes with black screen.

I don't believe that wget did anything.Click the first button to download the pet and just a second or two later the install dialog pops up....no where near long enough to download the pet.

Downloaded the pet with the PPM and its working fine....GeForce 2 mx400.

Strange where the Intel line came from,no Intel anything on the box anywhere.Almost like it was trying to download the wrong pet,and it failed at that too.

PostPosted: Sun 14 Nov 2010, 00:10    Post subject: Pupsave  

Small issue:

Frugal install on sda3/wary. Boot up without pupsave.
At shutdown, offered to make pupsave.
The dialog appears to choose the partition, sda1 as the default whereas boot off from sda3.

I remember old woof did not show the dialog of partition choice in case booted off from some frugal installed partition.

"ex" means "example".. it's just a comment Wink denoted by the hash symbol in bash

James.. I don't think that driver supports your card anyway, so maybe it was supposed to fail? Confused

Same with me shino, you can try the one in the drivers thread I compiled in wary last week. Works for me. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=61763
