Laughing As fido

*rox is segfaulting (major)(see attachment)
*slickpet downloads but refuses to install (major)
*pmusic wont allow theme change (minor)
*pequalizer fails to set presets but does work on individual sliders (minor)
*most compiled apps work ok, they are designed to run as non-root users
*gkt-theming of splashes with gtkdialog-splash is stuck at orange (minor)
*pupradio works!

keep testing!

As a tip, to get back to root, drop to the prompt and type "login root", then password and "xwin" and you'll be back into familiar territory!. You can do the reverse to get back to fido.

Attached is a fresh, unpatched rox executable, just to facilitate further testing of fido. It's out of git which was updated on 6 September.

Have fun!

Totally unable to exit to a prompt,as fido or root.Only restarts X.Tried from menu,terminal and keyboard.

Will install and try the rox pet though.Downloading now.
EDIT:
Rox now launches from the menu. Smile

EDIT-2:

Restarted X...... now have the default correct desktop back.

Tried about everything but I finally got fido to reboot. Laughing

Had to go to /usr/bin/wmreboot/ ........that made fido reboot and now working normally from the menu.

As mentioned earlier, PPM appears to be working here.

I just used Slickpet to download and install Pidgin.No problems......just asked for the admin password before it would install.Installed and working.

Wonder if the fact I'd already used the PPM in fido (to install Aurora) made a difference?

Hmm.. maybe, but I can put in code as insurance.

Hi amigo.. http://repo.or.cz/r/rox-filer.git/, iirc it is available from the rox homepage (or a link from there)

Cheers

ROX-Filer wasn't updated, it's dead for a very long time. If you check the last modification date, you'll see that the only directories changed are those with the repository information and not the code itself.

Ok, I didn't check anything! Just grabbed and compiled for fido's sake.

Tried fido in slaXO-beta2 Wink so what I describe may not be typical.
Fido failed to startx because /tmp has 755 permissions and /dev/* 660. Changing to 777 and 666 respectively got me to X.
Applications I tried work OK but Urxvt fails because can not make the pseudo-tty devise.
PPM works though would be nice if the password entry field provided some feedback that indeed you type something.
More latter (hopefully I'll manage to reboot)

Latter: Reboots ok but X got stuck again because of the /tmp permissions.
The good news is the urxvt works second time around

Mick,
Where did you get that ROX-Filer source from? I just looked at the ROX git and svn sites, the last update was 3 months ago.

I link to it above for amigo. Apparently Iguleder reckons it's not updated. Like I said, I was looking for the source, (quickly) and that's what came up. http://repo.or.cz/r/rox-filer.git/.. says 5th September, 2011 on a couple of the dirs so I thought it must be new.
