Info not posting right here...Go to Puppy Forum #2 and see post in Racy...

http://puppylinux.info/

But we will try once again here......

Surprise....

If you have a gmail account for your email, you have a feature in there called 'Call Phone' (if I remember right, you have to signup for the feature even though it's free)

if you go to: http://tinyurl.com/8479cqm

Download the .pet file:

googletalk-ff.pet

Install it in Racy-5.2.2

You have free live talk from your computer microphone to any local and long-distance phone number in the U.S. and Canada.

Works like a charm and is cyrstal clear, probably better than your phone!

This works for U.S. gmail accounts, how it will work for other parts of the world, you'll have to check that out for yourself.

NOTE: When dialing... a '1' is required for long-distance numbers and the 'area-code' seems to be required for all calls, even local.

Might even work in Slacko, Exprimo, Lupu and others... here again, you won't know unless you try.

PostPosted: Mon 09 Jan 2012, 18:45    Post subject: mhwaveedit config file  

Suggestion for Barry...

I got an idea while looking a Tazoc's Lighthouse 503

He puts a mhwaveedit configuration file in his ISO
so that the first time a user launches mhwaveedit
it will have a wide window and less vertical scroll bars.
It's a nice touch!! Laughing

Here's the file he uses ----> /root/.mhwaveedit/config
Note that there is a line for window geometry

Code:

# mhWaveEdit configuration file.
# Automatically generated by mhWaveEdit 1.4.20
# May be hand edited but extra comments will be removed when the
# settings are saved.
# Remove this file to restore default settings.

tempfilesFP = true
speedReset = false
viewQuality = 128
timeDisplayScale = 0
varispeedConv = 5
tempDir1 = /root/.mhwaveedit
rollCursor = false
mixerUtility = retrovol
showTimeScale = true
showSpeed = false
showHorizontalZoom = false
playerFallback_BigEndian = false
showVerticalZoom = false
speedSmooth = true
speedConv = 0
soundDriver = auto
soundBufferSize = 65536
timeDisplay = 0
mainwinFront = true
recentFiles = 4
drawImprove = true
varispeed = true
playerFallback_SampleSize = 2
autoPlayMark = false
outputStereo = false
useGeometry = true
outputByteswap = false
ditherPlayback = 0
windowGeometry = 50_50_822_292
diskEditingThreshold = 131072
centerCursor = true
soundLock = false
playerFallback_Signed = true
ditherEditing = 1

PostPosted: Tue 10 Jan 2012, 18:30    Post subject: /etc/services is missing entries for ntp.  

After being a happy Puppy 4.3.1 user for over two years, I decided to try something new. Trying out Racy 5.2.2, I am pleased to see that the past couple of years have brought many improvements. Racy is looking good!

I did notice, however. that ntpdate (which was included in both Puppy 4.3.1 and Racy 5.2.2) is still not working because of an omission in the /etc/services file.

For details see the following bug report submitted by Minomushi in 2010: ntpdate trouble

I am attaching a copy of /etc/services which is a duplicate of the one included with Racy 5.2.2 except that the missing entries have been added.

PostPosted: Tue 10 Jan 2012, 19:50    Post subject: Trouble with Ralink RT2860 Wirless Driver  

With Racy Puppy 5.2.2, I managed to add the RT2860.bin firmware file for the Ralink RT2860 driver that was missing to the lib/firmware folder but after that I cannot find any wireless networks when scanning, even though there is definetly one that should be able to be found.

Any ideas on how I can make a Ralink RT2860 adapter work with Racy Puppy 5.2.2?

nobles:

You might want to move your question on Racy wifi over to the forum thread below for better results:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=74819

I still have a problem with rt2800USB but at least it was addressed over there.

Well, everything but the B43 Broadcom wireless but that's to be expected. I'm getting pretty used to that. Just need to figure out how to get it working under Puppy.

Thanks!


Just tried wuxiandianzi's experiment with k3.1.8 and it looks like B43 support has been fixed in this kernel so there's hope for us B43 users on k3.....

This fixes 2 bugs in the PUI.

First if you choose to run gparted the drive selection window shows your drive twice in the drive selection window after you quit gparted.

The second is that the PUI offers a full install to NTFS.

The French blogger "Gu1" has discovered that versions 1.11 and above of X.org's X Server contain an interesting vulnerability that enables users to gain access to a locked computer.

http://www.h-online.com/security/news/item/X-org-server-allows-anyone-to-unlock-computer-1417864.html

Version 1.11.0 is used in Racy 5.2.2 and Wary 5.2.2.

PostPosted: Tue 24 Jan 2012, 18:35    Post subject: Barry has fixed the B43 problem in k3 puppies  

Just to report that Barry has identified why b43 drivers / firmware fail to load in k3 puppies

http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02651

and pemasu has created a pet of the fix:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=51139

and I've tested that it works for my b43 with v13 firmware in

racy 5.2.2
slacko 5.3.1.3
exprimo 5.x.10.3

all with versions of the k3 kernel

cheers and thanks to barry and pemasu

Please consider these 2 :

rc.shutdown :

Code:
M=`mount`
MTD=`echo $M | rev | sed 's§ )§\n)§g'|rev`
echo "$MTD"

This works for me to turn mount output upside down to unmount sfs,iso,partition ...

*

the killzombies: cut that occurs in rc.shutdown

also occurs in

pmount
drives_all
pup_event_frontend_d

karl,
maybe because I haven't yet had my morning cup of coffee, but I don't understand either of these suggestions. Would you mind fleshing them out a bit?

OK : first , for the mountpoints :

I have mounted many loopdevices to show the problem of nested/encapsulated/interlaced mounts :

The problem is the

for ONESTRAY in $STRAYPARTandMNT

would read the list of mounted partitions/directories in the above order and try to unmount

/dev/sda10
before /dev/loop6 existing on /dev/sda10

which would fail because being in use by /dev/loop6

And would try to unmount /dev/loop6 before /dev/loop7 existing inside /dev/loop6

which would fail because being in use by /dev/loop7

Code:
MNTDPARTS="`mount`"
MNTDPARTS=`echo $MNTDPARTS |rev|sed 's# )#\n)#g' |rev`

should revert to
