Reminder: on wary-505q the bootup black screen could be fixed installing forum member i915_modeset0-0.1.pet
This happened with "Intel Corporation" Board "82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device".
*** New ***: forum member rerwin has updated his pet to i915_modeset0-0.2.pet ( ...thanX Richard !)

Merci charlie.
wary-511q-k2.6.32.28-small.iso is already implemented the Richard's fix thanks to your information. Please test 511q.

We are now investigating the mystery of PPLOG on 511q and the seamonkey on 511q-full.
As for the PPLOG, it was working on 500m09 but is not working on the later versions.

Sure you saw Barry's blog for SeaMonkey 2.0.13. Could you also include 2.1.b2 PET when you make your change.

Hope this helps.

Found the fix for the seamonkey on 511q-full.
The file /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.0.12/seamonkey on 511q-full is broken.
Replace the file with the attached. This fix is only for the 511q-full. You need not as for the 511q-small.

The SeaMonkey 2.0.13 of Barry's is without mail, but you can use them as an option.
Thanks gcmartin.

Subject description: intel driver 82845 bootup black screen (follow..)
 

Hi,
have installed wary-511m-small-iso on different PC's.
Starting from live-cd and with pfix=ram, again black screen at bootup after setup of personalize settings.
This here occurs only on several identical PC's featured with intel 82845 video card.

Not any problem if starting in 'safe mode'.

It as not that so a major problem as once the 'pupsave' ...ooops! the 'warysave' file is created (case of frugal install), the problem does not seem to occur anymore even if doing Ctrl-Alt-Backspace.

Cheers, Charlie

PostPosted: Tue 29 Mar 2011, 16:31    Post subject: Video issues  

Wary 511q (full) seems to work fine. No issues as all items are intact. But I would like to report a video performance observation on a laptop with the Intel 82845 chipset. This MAY be present as well in WARY. I will have to test that.

I have produced a report using this WARY to show video findings. Could be useful in identifying your video problem(s). Test you see, there, are run on 511q-FULL. And are repeatable and verifiable..

Edited: I rebooted system pfix=ram i915.modeset=1 and got a different set of performance numbers and an erratic jumpy desktop.

Hope this helps.

PostPosted: Tue 29 Mar 2011, 19:45    Post subject: SeaMonkey in Quickset WARY  

Couple of points on SeaMonkey PETs
Seems that Barry produced a full SeaMonkey in addition to non-mail Seamonkey. I tested it and it seems to work fine. (I had reported prematurely earlier about "all is fine". That was before I tried the enclosed browser). I installed Barry's V2.0.13 PET and have used it without issue after loading Adobe Flash.

My question: Should we load Adobe flash from PPM before upgrading to SeaMonkey 2.0.13 or will you take care of that in your upcoming WARY 5.1.1? Or should we wait until SeaMonkey request to d/l flash?

2nd question: You had produced a SeaMonkey in the past that had JRE built-in. Will that be occurring again for 2.0.13?

3rd question: Can we expect to see SeaMonkey V2.1. forthcoming?

All other things seem to perform well.
Thanks in advance.

PostPosted: Wed 30 Mar 2011, 00:15    Post subject: PPLOG and other issues  

Thanks charlie and gcmartin for the testing Intel 845G.
Thanks gcmartin for the information of Barry's full SeaMonkey.
We have gtk encountering the insert-key issue, but i am now hesitating we are better to switch the gtk or not...

As for the PPLOG issue, a Japanese forum member, Saborima found the solution:
Type the command from the terminal.
Code:
chmod a+w /dev/null

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=59106
Throubleshooting:
If hiawatha shows an error at boot "warning: error redirecting stdout". It´s fixed changing permissions to /dev/null file, just add write permissions for everybody.

Hi shinobar

First time trying the wary quickset edition. Nice job!

I had a reason for trying.. mainly to see if this bug existed, and yes it does. Sad . It also exists in the latest lupu.

I have a fix. Currently at line 1165 in /usr/sbin/countrywizard.qs is:
Code:
 # hostname
 HOSTNAME=$(keyword $HOSTNAME)
 [ "$HOSTNAME" != "" ] || HOSTNAME=$HOSTNAMELAST
 if [ "$HOSTNAME" != "$HOSTNAMELAST" ]; then
   hostname $HOSTNAME
   echo -n $HOSTNAME > /etc/hostname
   CHANGES="$CHANGES
 $(gettext 'Hostname')"
 fi


This fixes it:
Code:
# hostname
 HOSTNAME=$(keyword $HOSTNAME)
 [ "$HOSTNAME" != "" ] || HOSTNAME=$HOSTNAMELAST
 if [ "$HOSTNAME" != "$HOSTNAMELAST" ]; then
   hostname $HOSTNAME
   echo -n $HOSTNAME > /etc/hostname
   OLDHOSTS=`head -n1 /etc/hosts|cut -d ' ' -f3`
   sed -i "s/$OLDHOSTS/$HOSTNAME/" /etc/hosts
   CHANGES="$CHANGES
 $(gettext 'Hostname')"
 fi


Cheers!

Subject description: no CUPS-PDF printing
 

Hi,

couldn't print with CUPS-PDF in Wary511q until found in the forum a causality to changed hostnames (here, we have several PCs with different hostnames inside a home net and the need of it).

Found the (a?) solution in:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=64346&search_id=240817399&start=15

with the note of missing .Xauthority (empty) file in /root. Without this no dialog box for pdf printing appeared, no pdf files afterwards...

PostPosted: Thu 31 Mar 2011, 12:31    Post subject: Hostnames and Hosts files  

@01micko had pointed out something which may be the culprit to several anomolies noticed. Thanks for the eye-opener.
Edited: Remove the line mentioning other applications. Added code section.

@Shinobar. Would "Personalize Settings" at LiveCD start (also any other time its used) provide a clear solution to setting the integrity in both files?

Here's what my Ubuntu server shows for hostname and /etc/hosts
Code:
# hostname
UbuntuServerName

# cat /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1   localhost
127.0.1.1   UbuntuServerName

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts
I ran a test to see if when I change the hostname if the /etc/hosts file would change. IT DOES NOT! So, I would assume that a reboot would be necessary for Ubuntu to make the proper change in /etc/hosts. (I did not do this. This server has NOT been down in 4 years.)

Hope this helps

Thank you all for the great bit of troubleshooting concerning the rox slowdown problem. We were able to get the fix into the upcoming Lucid (whew, just barely). This is a good thing since we have a box right there on the firstrun dialog where users can change the hostname.

Thanks mave and charlie. I will modify /usr/lib/cups/backend/cups-writer at line 69-:
Code:
#PUPPY_LINUX=`uname -a | grep -ic puppy`
[ -f /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE ] && PUPPY_LINUX=1 || PUPPY_LINUX=0


Thanks micko, gcmartin and playdayz. I will incert a code in /usr/sbin/countrywizard.qs at line 1198-:
Code:
   echo "127.0.0.1 localhost $HOSTNAME" > /tmp/hosts
   grep -vw 'localhost'  /etc/hosts >> /tmp/hosts
   [ -s /tmp/hosts ] && mv -f /tmp/hosts /etc/hosts

PostPosted: Wed 06 Apr 2011, 08:52    Post subject: Schedule of the next release
Subject description: wary-511q01/m01 coming soon
 

Sorry for my silence of these days.
The Quickset Wary-511q/m/j has been out as a release candidate 2 weeks ago.
But we found some serious troubles in it and spent some days to fix them, seamonkey, PPLOG, rox slowdown and cups-writer.
The Japanese team already found the fixes and now testing wary-511j01.
We will be back to the multilingual edition wary-511q01/m01 in a week.
Please continue testing the previous Wary-511q/m for now with the fixes above posts.

Note that the updating seamonkey version and the Insert-key issue will be pending.

PostPosted: Tue 12 Apr 2011, 02:25    Post subject: Wary-5.1.1-01q
Subject description: New Release Candidate
 

The new Release Candidate is available.
http://shino.pos.to/party/bridge.cgi?puppy/wary/
New kernel same of Wary-5.1.1-01q-k2.6.32.28-small, without lang_pack. Download size 100MB.
698375596536f2af7392c1e880ec682b wary-511-01q-k2.6.32.28-small.iso
Note that the PPLOG does not work onthe wary-511m-k2.6.32.28-small.iso.

CHANGES(511-01q):
1. Fixed PPLOG was not working.
The init script in the recent woof made the permission of /dev/null wrong.
The init script in the initrd on 511-01q is modified.
The file /root/Web-Server/blog/pup_pplog.pl is modified for the support of UTF-8 encoding.

2. /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
Sync with the original wary-511 and revival the code for Intel 845G, lead to xorgwizard instead if the direct desktop(thanks to charlie).

3. Fixed slowing down the ROX-Filer at the changed hostname(thanks to micko, gcmartin and playdayz).

4. Fixed the CUPS PDF-Writer was failed at the changed hostname(thanks to mave, RetroTechGuy, rcrsn51 and rerwin).

NOTE: Seamonkey is still old version(same as the original wary-511) and crashes by the insert-key.
