I've been using Wary 104 with a few added packages plus Barry's zzz .pet to endow it with 3G modem capability. It operated nicely indeed on my veteran 560MHz PIII desktop. But I decided to try the upgrade, so burnt the CD for Wary 5.1, and rebooted. Horror! Mad Mad

Code:
You will either have to uninstall the Puppy 2 packages or install missing dependencies

gtk+12 gtkxft gtk_pixbuf10 glib12
tk tcl tix uri tktable tablelist tile trf combobox gnocl img
qt
imlib libx aw95_DEP4
speex libosp[2 cdr dao SOX
libidn fig2dev pstoedit mtools

I didn't even know I had any puppy 2 packages installed. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Which were they?
And I think there was a further alert came up, but it disappeared while I was busy writing down that first list of things I'd have to fix. Sad
Then when the desktop came up, it had no volume control. Music player pmusic did play, but at zero volume. And worst of all, my 3G modem was not recognized. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad I switched off, and went to the pub.

Next day when I switched it on, fearing what else could be awry, there were no messages about missing dependencies, and the volume control had returned. See, there are good elves like the shoemaker said!! Razz Cool

But still no go with the modem, so I ran the zzz_scripts_simple_bk-201011.pet which I'd kept a copy of, and now the modem was all go. I notice that after unplugging and reinserting the usb modem I no longer get the green overlay message saying "modem is now ready for use" or words to that effect. The main thing is that it does work. I found PPM listed zzz TWICE in the installed packages. I uninstalled one of them and they both uninstalled. So I reinstalled it, and again it's listed twice. No big deal.

The upshot: all seems well and good. Razz I particularly like the new pmusic which can be accessed via an icon on the tray beside the volume control; it sure beats having to do to rxvt to kill the player. And now, each mouse click adds a music file to a playlist.

Wary 5.1 -- I like it! Razz Razz


Thanks for the feedback. Wary 5.1 already has the 'zzz' package installed. What was missing was the 'jimtcl' package that 'zzz' needs, as reported in an above post.

Hmmm, the upgrade is still not working properly. It looks like the old /etc/rc.d/rc.update script is running instead of the new one (I don't know why). You can ignore all those messages.
Anyway, the next time that you upgrade it should be ok.

Thanks Barry,

Even though I had to disconnect my noisy (failing) hard drives, I can still browse the net, do online banking, receive and send e-mail (Hotmail) with your Puppy Linux 4.3.1 and an 8GB USB Pen Drive.

With both versions of Wary 510 (k2.6.32.28 and k2.6.31.14-uniproc-ide), the browser (Seamonkey) crashes.

I have no idea why that is happening, but I have a suggestion. Click on the 'setup' icon on the desktop and choose 'Upgrade X drivers' then install the Xorg 7.5 upgrade PET. It will be interesting to find out if that makes any difference.

I guess ffmpeg compiled for i686. http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02064 so pmusic doesn't work on i586. I put mplayer binary from PuppyRus Jeans to my-applications/bin and use it for music and internet radio.

Nice job Barry, but my wireless network settings are not saved when rebooting or shutdown. I'm using the standard Network Wizard. Everything else works great.

Upgraded from 5.0 to 5.1 by just moving vmlinuz, initrd and wary_510 to my Wary 5.0 partition. All seems OK except I am under the distinct impression that Seamonkey 2.0.xx in Wary 5.1 and Wary 5.0 are slower and more uncertain of operation than version 1.1.18 in Puppy 431. The apparent degradation re the earlier version seems to be url dependent. It is difficult to obtain hard numbers as I generally don't know how fast my DSL channel is at any particular time, but I have switched back and forth between the two systems many times now and definitely feel Puppy431/Seamonkey 1.1.18 is preferable.

Anyone else notice this?

PostPosted: Fri 25 Feb 2011, 02:22    Post subject: 5.1.1 LiveCD  

I downloaded to test this version and found several items to note.

1. The XVesa video support seems to be broken as
  • drag and drop doesnt work properly
  • middle mouse button doesn't do what I had expected in pasting from one window to another

2. When I tried to run glxgears from a terminal window I get the followiing messages:
Code:
#glxgears
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visualXlib
It appears that to run LiveCD, I cannot go to XVesa for full desktop use. Further in order to run glxgears, I MUST Probe for a video before I can use glxgears., then I can go to XVesa to run glxgears. BUT, the other items I report still remain.

Lastly the PPM drivers for this intel card does not reflect that one is dependent upon the other. Each driver is s minor order improvement when I move from Pristine to each of the listed drivers on LiveCD.

What was surprising is that the XVesa was a order above the Intel dirvers in the PPMs. I didn't expect to see this.

I wonder how many other users have run glxgears with and without Xvesa and have seen a surprisingly faster video report?

Subject description: keyboard disconnects
 

machine: hp pavilion 7927.

while trying wary 5.1.1, the keyboard (ps/2) disconnects at the beginning of the boot-up process; further input is impossible.

(on the same computer puppy 4.3.1 works fine).

Subject description: Problem fixed on my PC
 

Dear Barry,

I experienced the same problem as rodin.s - Seamonkey crashes.

I followed your advice about upgrading the display driver to Xorg 7.5 .

I worked with SM after the upgrade for hours - success! No more problems.

MoBo is a SiS 740/962 with 1GB(RAM), 128KB(VGA).

Cheers, FeodorF

Hi Barry,

I'll be sticking with Puppy Linux 4.3.1 for now.

At least until I can upgrade my hardware.

Thanks for your response earlier on.

Subject description: text file appears instead of 2-pane window
 

I upgraded to 511 from 510 using the delta file. If I go to system-> boot manager and click the Blacklist Module button, I get an Xdialog help text file instead of the normal 2-pane dialogue window.

I've seen this several times in various Puppy versions over the years. There must be a fix, but can't remember what it is.

Re. above problem with Boot manager blacklist dialogue. I tried a fresh pup_save and the problem has disappeared.

Seems then that this might have to do with using a the same pup_save with 511 as I did with 510. There was no offer of a version upgrade when booting into the new 511 system for the first time.

I'd have thought that the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file would have persisted over the upgrade - and it has.

The last line of the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file seems to be malformed though with a final missing skiplist entry - or is this normal?

I'm running Wary 5.1.1, frugal install.

I, of course, prefer having my hardware clock keep track of UTC
while Puppy does the math to show me my local timezone.

The Puppy menu utilities for syncing the hardware clock with UTC,
setting the timezone, etc., seem all messed up,
and have been for some years.

I did a search and found this topic:
"Forum index » House Training » Beginners Help ( Start Here)
How to accurately synch the clock?"
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=61900

"...
What I think you can do is work with Psync some and if you can
communicate effectively exactly what it is doing,
whoever is currently in charge of it may be willing to fix it."

Well, that was started, as I recall, some time ago on these forums,
but no "whoever is currently in charge of it" ever did "fix it.".

Thank you,
Eddie Maddox

Have you tried Simple Network Setup (SNS)? I don't develop nor use Network Wizard myself, and rely on others to find any faults in it.

Yes, SM 2.0.11 is a bit peculiar. I and others have reported strange behviour when scrolling.

SM 2.1 is reportedly better and I will upgrade soon.
