Same sound problems I used to have. Try removing the entire /dev directory and rebooting - sound should come back.

Hope this is the right place to put it:

I found a strange behaviour in Wary 511:

When using gdmap it crashes when I click on the "Open" icon top left.

Terminal has this to say:

Quote:
# gdmap

(gdmap:18726): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
Segmentation fault
#


Same happens when using treesize (after installing the pet).

Does anybody have an idea?


Frugal install, warysave file, on ext3 partition with grub.

zekebaby - thank you for your help on this. Do you mean that one should delete the /dev folder and its contents, or leave the folder and delete the contents? Didn't know if it would matter.

I hope your fix is incorporated into woof, and that is helps. It occurs in the recent spups as well. It is really, really, disappointing, and makes the releases difficult to use - about the time one gets everything set up comfortably, the sound disappears.

PostPosted: Sat 26 Mar 2011, 15:37    Post subject: wary 511 and lilo
Subject description: works on one of four computers
 

Puppy 4.31 retro 2.6.21.7 and 4.12 (pulp 0.1)
boot on everything with loadlin or lilo. As does
a non-retro Puppy 4.31.

Tinycore boots on everything with lilo but not with loadlin.

Wary 5.11 (with scsi and modem support, about 130MB) boots with lilo
on one 700MHz Toshiba laptop, but not on three desktops,
where "wary_511.sfs not found" whether or not I steer it
to the directory with append= in lilo.conf.
(Loadlin just reboots the computer).

I have vmlinuz and initrd.gz in a FAT32 /dev/hda1
and the .sfs file in /dev/hda6 ext2. Puppy 4 similarly.

It works from live CD on at least one of the desktops.

I used lilo from hd and fd. Anything else to try?

Lupu won't even boot from CD half the time. My desktops
are circa 2001-2002, the laptop around 1999.

Sorry for not being specific . . . either method works. I just nuke /dev (folder and contents), but removing the contents and leaving an empty /dev would also work. Did it work for you?

PostPosted: Sun 27 Mar 2011, 00:50    Post subject: sound issue and deleting /dev/snd  

zekebaby,

It did work in Wary 5.1.1, though I have yet to test it in spup 099. Thank you so much. Here is my winding process - tried to delete /dev/snd while up and running....no good, as there were hidden files in use that would not delete. So I rebooted as pfix=ram, mounted the warysave file, and deleted /dev/snd using rox. Upon reboot, the sound icon is back in lower right tray and sound is working on machine.

Note that I just deleted /dev/snd and not the entire /dev folder. I'd tried that in spup, and could not get it to reboot at all, so I was concerned about deleting everything in /dev. But I did it will the file was mounted so I'm going to try again, with the pfix=ram method, and see if it works.

Question - have you found this "fix" is persistent, or does the problem return after another four or five reboots?

Thank you very much!

PostPosted: Sun 27 Mar 2011, 11:57    Post subject: loss of volume in Wary 5.1.1  

zekebaby,

I posted about this on the Luci release thread, but a fix rerwin did for some folks that had issues with black screen seizes with the 82845G Intel chip in Luci or Lupu had helped my issue with Wary 5.1.1 See here for rerwin's post, my response is on page 63 of the thread.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=507982#507982

Not sure about your chip setup, but after doing a fresh savefile in Wary 5.1.1, and installing the fix above, I had been able to reboot 15 times without loss of volume. Continuing to test, and I have fingers crossed, but looks good right now.

EDIT: Rerwin's fix HAS stabilized Wary and Spup as far as my cranky chip and screen seizures. Sadly, after one more boot, Spup volume failed. (of course). However, deleting /dev/snd has worked in both Spup and Wary to return volume.

I don't know if this fix is persistent (my guess is no), so I basically delete /dev in /usr/sbin/snapmergepuppy. I haven't had a sound failure since. BTW, sound chip is intel8x0

Which version of Opera are you using? One earlier version sometimes "lost" plugins.

First check which plugins Opera has found by going to Tools>Advanced>Plug-ins.

Next type opera:config in the address bar to open the Preferences Editor.
Search for plugins. Then Under Users Prefs>Plugin Path ensure that the path includes the path to your plugins. The most common path is /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. If you need to amend the path press save afterwards. Close the Preferences Editor and restart Opera.

zekebaby,

checked into that. ah, how would one go about doing that in the snapmerge? Opened it up, and saw some entries like that which had the # in front of them. Would appreciate any help. Gracias in advance.
