So I think this is the line in the script at /usr/sbin/remasterpup2 that is making the sfs file?

"mksquashfs /tmp/root $WKGMNTPT/puppylivecdbuild/$SFSBASE.sfs -keep-as-directory"

mksquashfs happens several times and none of them seem to show the -comp xz option. The plan is to modify the script, I wonder if every instance of "mksquashfs" needs to be modified or only the last instance?

Reading about syntax here:

http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Squashfs

Sorry for all the posts, I'm in a little over my head.

It lives! Thanks for the help!

Changed prefs.js at /usr/lib64/firefox-7.0.1/defaults/profile/prefs.js

Remastered large CD and booted from the new CD.

Used mksquashfs My-SFS fd64-521.sfs -comp xz to make a new SFS file and saved.

Booted Puppy 4.3.1 from CD and used the iso editor to plunk the new smaller SFS into the ISO and saved.

Burned and booted, WORKS at 195 MB! Thanks!

Thanks so much kirk, I have a question, how I can build a 32 bit library in 64 bit like 'fd64-32bit-libs-6.sfs'? Need need some QT library in 32 bits and I don't know how to make it.

I made a pet of goggles music manager for fatdog 64.
It contains all the dependencies needed by goggles.

Subject description: volume control in tray
 

lxpanel crashes

Same problem with fbpanel, see post from bigpup about retrovol:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=69563&start=1305&sid=1abf2b4d53733ff3e40a36ba2a6337d9

I get practically the same hcontrol.c error on lxpanel:
hcontrol.c:764: snd_hctl_handle_event: Assertion `elem' failed."

When I remove volume control from tray no crashes from lxpanel occur, so that points the finger at alsa for now.

Strange thing, this suddenly appeared, I worked with this fd64-RC release for months 24/7 so to speak and no problems with volume control.

Some more hits but no solution:
http://mailman.alsa-project.org/pipermail/alsa-devel/2011-January/035265.html
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/alsa-utils/+bug/715544

Any one else with these experiences?
Keep in mind, this happened on fd64-RC, not fd64-521 to my knowledge

I plan to migrate to 521, if it happens again I will report back.

Hold your horses, I just now saw post http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=728797477&t=73136

I will try this one of course

Subject description: Hardware problem
 

I have been using Fatdog64-520b5 for some time and loving it.

After downloading and burning Fatdog64-521 and trying it on this laptop ("Lance Armstrong - AMD Turion, 1 gig mem., report is attached) and booting with "fatdog pfix=ram" the whole thing slows and quits after typing one paragraph in Abiword. The cooling fan seems to be running more than it should be as well. MD5 sums were ok.

Went back to 520b5 and everything is working perfectly. Part of the unexplained. Sad

When running 64-521 from a CD, did you allow a save file to be created and copied to your hard drive, also the sfs file? Because of the slow CD drive, it will alway be slow using pfix=ram so it's always best to set up a frugal installation on your hard drive.

My favorite technique is install puppy on a usb flash drive along with grub4dos which allows boot from the flash drive or the frugal installation on the hard drive. That way all that's accessed on the flash drive is the boot code which is very fast.

Subject description: abiword crashes on my Fatdog64-521
 

Wow! The forum is back!

Thanks to all who replied. This was and is now back to a frugal installation. Abiword still slows down to slower than I can type then freezes even when starting with fatdog pfix=ram.

I installed open office and open office writer works well so that will be the fix for now. No fan coming on, can type a whole page rapidly, and no freezing.

FWIW I tried fatdog64-521 on a 64 bit Acer machine and everything worked perfectly there.

Fatdog doesn't work with the Netgear WN111 WIFI dongle.

http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/carl9170#working

Here is some information to help you get it going. The carl9170-1.fw needs to be placed in /lib/firmware.

get it here: http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=carl9170-1.fw&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CB0QFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Flinuxwireless.org%2Fen%2Fusers%2FDrivers%2Fcarl9170%2Ffw1.9.4%3Faction%3DAttachFile%26do%3Dget%26target%3Dcarl9170-1.fw&ei=jJTWTuCGO6rdmAWIp8h-&usg=AFQjCNHBDcKcu6mt8UfsiqNtd0ZvwcSsPA&sig2=Y_6JQNZpTlduXMHgBs3sxw&cad=rja

Fatdog64-521 currently has the carl9170.ko driver but not the firmware installed.

Cheers

PostPosted: Mon 05 Dec 2011, 00:49    Post subject: Unmount All?  

When I right-click on a drive and choose "Unmount ALL mounted partitions" it opens pMount, but does not unmount any drives. This has been happening for quite some time through the versions. I am now on 521. I assumed it was a small bug and would probably be fixed quickly. It seems I was wrong. Does this happen to anyone else?

PostPosted: Mon 05 Dec 2011, 17:07    Post subject: How to use Samba  

I've been trying to learn to use Samba to share files over a wifi network with my laptop. Samba apparently is already setup properly with /etc/samba/smb.conf, however when I run lameSMBexplorer on my laptop or desktop, I get the following dialog when I doubleclick on data Downloads: I've tried root, woofwoof, and spot with no password, neither work.

I am very inept about Samba, although I have read gcmartin's tutorial which to me doesn't seem relevant since Fatdog already has the smb.conf file setup to use Spot. Are their other configuration files that I need to address, or am I just missing the proper Options to add under Domain, Username, and Password in lameSMBexplorer?

Thanks,
Jim

Jim,

In LameSMBxplorer don't put anything for username or password. It should work. You can also double right click on the data folder. If it doesn't work, something has probably been changed in /etc/samba/smb.conf. You can copy the original file from /initrd/pup_ro2/etc/samba/smb.conf and then stop and restart Samba.
The default Samba configuration forces anonymous users to be logged in as user spot, so you'll only be able to write to places spot owns.

Liboicl,

That's a bug, we'll have to look into it. Thanks.

smokey01,

I'll put the firmware in for next time.

Hi Kirk,

Thanks, however the problem was not with Samba or lameSMBexplorer, I had a broken link to /Spot/Downloads.

I can't believe that I've wasted so much time copying files to a USB flash drive to transfer them to my laptop when you already had Samba set up to easily accomplish the file transfer over my wifi connection.

Cheers, Very Happy
Jim

Hi Kirk,

Fatdog64-521's installation was flawless and all software appears to be working correctly. Very Happy

The only problem that I've had is that Reboot and Shutdown do not work properly from the menu. However, they do set action code because using Ctrl>Alt>Backspace accomplishes the Reboot or Shutdown that was requested.

Cheers,
Jim

Hi, if anyone interested, I've created pets for fatdog64-521:

lmsensors (for temp monitoring type "sensors" in xterm, or use it in another application)
S-lang, the missing dependency for MidnightCommander, namely slang (libslang.so.2 was the missing dep)
Tint2 + imlib2 (imlib2 is needed for tint2)
sylpheed

they can be downloaded here: http://www.pupsys.net/FILES/Fatdog64/Fatdog64-521-PETS/
