Updated Wary-512 [warysave.3fs] to Wary-513.

Unaware of any problems; it's looking good so far. Very Happy Cool

Isn't that what you want, and that's what you have got?

Yes. But the BootManager routine, pointed out by tempestuous, is still showing :

PostPosted: Sat 13 Aug 2011, 13:51    Post_subject: NVIDIA problem  

I tried to upgrade from Wary 5.1.1 - succeed but the NVIDIA driver, which was healthy in 5.1.1, did not survive this.
Same with 5.1.2.
Then booted with pfix=ram. Started well using vesa driver.
Opened Video upgrade wizard which correctly recognized my NV44A GeForce 6200 card and offered installing nvidia-60.19.12-k2.6.32.28-w5.pet. I downloaded and installed it as recommended but did not get NVIDIA work (NVIDIA X server settings menu item did not start.)

There was no problem with configuring my GeForce 6200 in Wary 511 / Lupu 525
Any idea?

When I need to change the preference, I delete (backspace) the
existing one and type in the opposite.

So? 8139cp:8139too means that the second one has preference, that is, 8139too has preference.

The Video Upgrade Wizard should have offered to install 'nvidia-260.19.12-k2.6.32-rev1-w5.pet'.

if you booted with pfix=ram, there is no way I can see that it would have offered to install 'nvidia-260.19.12-k2.6.32-w5.pet'.

PostPosted: Sun 14 Aug 2011, 01:26    Post_subject: 5.1.2 to 5.1.3 warysave upgrade failed  

When I upgraded my frugal installation of 5.1.2 to 5.1.3, everything seemed to work well, but I soon found that my wireless did not work. When I tried to redefine my connection, my wireless adapter (ath5k) did not show up. Trying to manually load the kernel module gave me an error (see attached).

When I removed the warysave file and rebooted into a clean 5.1.3, everything worked perfectly - my wireless card is detected and works.

No problems to report otherwise - looks like another solid release!

Yes, indeed. That is what it was originally. It didn't work. tp suggested swapping the order. That didn't work. As a mere user, I followed implicitly the suggestions of the guy who tried to help in the expectation that it might help other folks who had experienced problems. At that stage, PREFLIST in file /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG wasn't mentioned. I don't do coding - I have to explain this frequently. I was blissfully unaware that something else needed changing.
I report things that don't work - as requested. A bunch of guys who do the coding look into making their great distros even greater. That way, we all get better reviews and a larger user base. Meanwhile, I am happy to assist anyone struggling with conformational analysis, rate equations, etc, etc.................

frugal-install Wary513 on USB-Flash via syslinux (without hard disk)
Result: I can't boot. message error: puppy_wary_5.1.3.sfs not found. Dropping out initram...

This is my syslinux.cfg
Code:

label 00
kernel /wary513/vmlinuz pdev1=sdb1 psubdir=wary513
append initrd=/wary513/initrd.gz

label 01
kernel /wary513/vmlinuz pdev1=sdb1 pmedia=sdb1 psubdir=wary513
append initrd=/wary513/initrd.gz


Same errors if I install Wary513 via grub4Dos! Crying or Very sad

Any suggestions to path this bug (syslinux, grub4Dos or initrd.gz ...?)
Thank you

*** Oh, I'd discovered this error comes with other distros: slacko, popularpup, midnightpup ... Must be leave with USB-Flash install?

Thanks for reporting this vanchutr, it may be an init script issue. I will do further testing in wary and slacko (aka spup) for confirmation.

I would like to urge anyone who has the time to test usb booting with NO hard drive in this wary, latetst spup, polarpup.. anything built in the last 2 weeks.

Thank you.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

EDIT: I can confirm this bug exists in wary-5.1.3 AND the latest Slacko at least with my equipment.

Hello Smile!

PostPosted: Sun 14 Aug 2011, 13:39    Post_subject: Delta Files  

Hi all,
Has anybody had success with the delta files.
I downloaded the 5.1.2__5.1.3delta file from ibiblio from Barry's blog link and tried to build an iso using Xdiff Manager. Something I have successfully done numerous times before. A window came up saying the iso had been built, but it was telling porky pies, there was no new iso. this was in Wary_5.1.2.7, so I shut down and tried again in Lupu 5.2.5, same result.
Looked about for any error reporting and found a report at /temp/xdelta-err which said "xdelta3: target window cheksum mismatch: XD3_INVALID_INPUT".
Did an md5sum on the delta file, output agreed with that posted on ibiblio.
Now confused.
Cheers

Installed Wary513 from full install using iso and Bootflash.

Removed hard drives from pc and laptop.

Pc will boot but laptop says Wary_513_ sfs file not found, dropping out to ramdisk

PostPosted: Sun 14 Aug 2011, 15:40    Post_subject: Fixes made for lucid pup but applicable to wary  

Barry,
During lupu testing, I discovered and fixed two issues that can also benefit wary and woof.

1. Pupscan produces confusing "kernel module" information from the lspci command. In actuality, lspci lists both "kernel modules" and "kernel drivers", the latter, I assume, being drivers built into the kernel. I adapted pupscan's formatting to handle this. Currently, my PCI adapters are described as:

2. Whenever the Xarchive utility is run, the xerrs.log file get overlaid with a single line. No subsequent log messages can be viewed in the text editors, although the cat command shows they are there. The cause is that the various "wrapper" scripts write to /dev/stderr with only a single ">", thus obliterating previous log messages. To correct this, I changed the ">" to ">>" in all of the wrappers. They are also in the attached package. Here is the difference listing for the primary wrapper (diff /initrd/pup_ro2/usr/local/lib/xarchive/wrappers/tar-wrap.sh tar-wrap.sh):

The Video Upgrade Wizard should have offered to install 'nvidia-260.19.12-k2.6.32-rev1-w5.pet'.


During upgrade from 5.1.1 to 5.1.3, the "no-rev1" pet is offered. See the screenshot attached.

if you booted with pfix=ram, there is no way I can see that it would have offered to install 'nvidia-260.19.12-k2.6.32-w5.pet'.


You are right, Barry, thanks for the advice. Yes, I booted with pfix=ram but I did not recognize the "-rev1" in the offered filename so I installed the old pet which was downloaded previously to the HDD during upgrading.
Sorry for misleading you.

After this intermezzo, 5.1.3 works fine. It is interesting that after upgraded from 5.1.1, it inherited the drive icon behavior - no png overlay. To tell the truth, I am happy with this, maybe I am a bit conservative.
