That's what backups are for Wink

...what, you didn't make backups?!

Meh, it's OK, I don't either Razz I'm lazy (and apparently both penny-wise and pound-foolish!).

I fixed jwm_tools to remove duplicate entries (your fix probably broke with submenus enabled, though I didn't test it) ... also added support for keybindings

cool, I 'll have a look... I tested my fix with and without submenus, seemed to work fine.. But if u got a shell only solution, I'll apply that instead.

I just uploaded firefox-7.0.1-1-akita.pet - works great!

I added adblock, flashblock, betterprivacy, video downloader to the last one Smile
but this one also uses ubuntu fonts, has ghostery addon, better settings...
(both based on Tmans firefox builds, so thanks to him)

MIME type issues: affects Akita, I guess: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=73833

Note on better support for Asian languages (or fonts at least): http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=586467#586467

Also, jemimah is planning an update to frisbee, have to see how that goes...

and, sorry to post here, it's a whole to do list... in case my PC explodes, catches fire or has a heart attack

Code:

  - prepare for kernel upgrades, check Barry Ks blog:
      - update /usr/local/bin/drive_all and /usr/sbin/filemnt
      - /etc/rc.d/rc.shudown,rc.sysinit,rc.services, and so on
      - woofy, zdrvcutr, things that look into DISTRO_SPECS
      - searched for KERNELVER, will soon do: KERNEL3CHARS, DISTRO_SPECS.. results so far:
            /usr/sbin/filemnt
            /usr/sbin/puppyinstaller
            /usr/sbin/remasterpup2
            /usr/sbin/sfs_load
            /usr/bin/edit-sfs
            /usr/bin/woofy
            /usr/bin/zdrvcutr

   - fix mounting of utf stuff in vfat partitions for JWM drives, ROX drives (drive_all)
         - (check shinobars work in latest drive_all and in pmount)

   - fix 2 line partition names in pup_event_frontend_d!!
   
   - update grub4dos
         - adds support for ext4, and later kernels
   
   - petget needs NLS updates, especially for yaf-splash
   
   - add QtWeb to browser installer? and netsurf?

   - add a WM installer?? (using my "ql_gui" thingy)
         - openbox - akita repo
         - fbpanel - akita repo
         - xfce - wary5OLD repo
         - fluxbox - akita
         - lxpanel - akita
         - lxde - wary repo
         - compile e16 or e17?
         
   - fix the following PPM packages:
         - freeciv 2.2.5: re-compile or fix existing package!!
         - add Xdialog info, setup stuff to pinstall of:
               - tint2, refresh menus

   - add to akita repo and to PPM:
         - tor: needs libevent-2.0.so.5
         - xfce: needs dbus-glib, thunar, rc file tweaks
         - xfe: maybe just needs older (other compiled) FOX lib added
         - conky_lua package, with all deps and menu loader, plus pinstall to load it all up
         - fbpanel, with already refreshed menus! (see stu90s work)
         - goffice1 and goffice2 (add pinstall to make default blah)
         - bmpanel2 (customise it first - add a menu and tray icons!)
         - java 1.6.x (not 1.7 it is crap... I would go with 0.9.x if I could!)
         - Geeqie image viewer and NLS

   - update /usr/local/ql_gui
      - add 'dependency' feature: add new tag to syntax of config files, if present, they are the deps (comma separated)
      - then add openbox apps to the theme one, with openbox deps, then make es, ru, fr, de translations
   
   - update VLC-GTK - vlc-gtk-btn:
         - if audio files playing, add a simple playlist TREE thing, with filelist and play/stop/next/prev/save buttons
         - maybe include id3 tags
         - or see playmusic, simple GTK player, or pmusic 0.1, or ashmusic
   
   - update woofy:
      - after kernel update fix:
            - add kernel switching: choose a 2nd ISO, to use its kernel
      
   - i18n more puppy scripts
         - woofy, vlc-gtk, others?
         
   - add bacon syntax highlighting to geany
   
   - gparted_shell i18n'd, but it still needs the translations added


feel free to take any of that on...

PostPosted: Mon 05 Dec 2011, 18:11    Post_subject: Gparted broken in Akita?  

I think GParted (or libparted) may be broken in Akita.. Can someone please help me test this? I failed to make changes to an HD with Akita, but Pup 431 worked fine :/ Not good... Can anyone verify whether or not GParted is brokon in Akita?

Hi Scott, just wanted to let you know. Did a quick test, and it is broken. Tried to delete a partition, and it failed. Thanks, Rob

Damn it... I don't know if it would be libparted or Gparted, but I am using exactly the same packages as Wary 5.1.2 (I think, will double check..) and the same deps as in Wary too... Hmmmm... Can't promise I can fix that without going back to a pup4 Gparted package...

EDIT: I have had some success with GParted in Akita, and some of the failures also happened in Puppy 431, but GParted in 431 is generally much more reliable for me in my brief tests...

I'm surprised noone has tried to replace gparted with red hat's disk utils. Gparted requires several extra dependencies that are not used by anything else (the C++ versions of gtk - gtkmm,...) ... Then again gnome-disk-utils has its own set of many smaller dependencies, but many are useful to other programs.

I was trying puplite 5 and scott directed me here.

downloaded the beta and burned onto a cd.

tried on a pentium 4 machine, things do seem to work.

tried on a pentium 3 machine, cannot use a save file. I created save files either normal or encrypted (ext2), the subsequent boot gave kernel panic. Can only boot to ram on this machine, which is the one I really want to use a lighter system.

the machine is P3 933 mhz with 512 mb of ram.

any suggestions?

thanks

Hmmm, not sure... Does the save file get created OK? Can you mount it when booting without save files (using 'pfix=ram')?
Have you tried a frugal install to the same HD as the save file? You can use the 'Frugal Installer' to do that...

So for now, from Live CD, try removing the 'usbsave' pfix option from the boot commands?
(You can press 'e' to edit any boot entry in GRUB)..

Quote:
You could also try to boot with one of the 'pfix=rdsh' parameters to dropout to ramdisk shell, to read the files there...
I read that somewhere, it might help.. Rolling Eyes

Quote:
Pfix Options

pfix=ram will run Puppy totally in RAM and ignore saved sessions/storage file(s)
pfix=<n> where <n> is the number of saved sessions to ignore for a multisession-CD
pfix=rdsh will exit to initial ramdisk commandline (do not pivot_root)
pfix=usbcard for booting from USB flash drive via USB 2.0 to PCMCIA adapter
pfix=clean will force a simulated version upgrade (for Puppy 2.13 and later)
pfix=purge will force an even more radical file cleanup (to fix broken system) (for Puppy 2.14 and later)
pfix=#debug may help with debugging
pfix=copy or nocopy controls if main sfs file is loaded (copied) to RAM


Maybe, lastly, create a swap partition of swap file?? This is good for RAM limited PCs, although 512MB should be fine..

And just to be really annoying and waste all your time, GParted is broken in Akita at the moment, so you'd have to create
a swap partition using another pup.. But Akita includes the "Swap File Manager" in Menu->System, so that's nice Wink

This could be done without a save file, and it might help... But I can't say it's a 'fix'...

there is a swap file.

yes, the only way to boot is pfix=ram

the save files are created ok and mounted ok in subsequent reboots. It's after that the kernel panicked.

Hi loubapache.

Well, if you don't like experiments just take a 'Classic Pup 2.14X', as far as I know the latest version is 'Top9' - put it onto your P3 pc, via frugal or full installation - create a swap partition - and let the Puppy fly.

You can find 'Classic Pup 2.14X' in the projects forum, simply look for the greatest thread of the Puppy forums with more than 310 pages, more than 4650 posts and more than 731000 views - It's one of the best Puppies.

Hope this helps.

Cheers Wink

Thanks, maik.murks .

Will give it a try. Hope it has some reasonably modern apps.
