GetFlash-1.0 on precise beta2 does not work because the Adobe URL has been changed.

GetFlash install Flashplayer UPDATE: v1.1

One question, why is there still /dev/hda* /dev/hdb* etc. in puppy ? Is it still in use somewhere by the kernel or something ?

After using beta 2 for a couple of days and discovering how well the
puppy package manager works once the precise repos are added and
updated (configure button in ppm) I think it is my new favorite puppy

Thanks Barry!

PostPosted: Sun 10 Jun 2012, 14:09    Post subject: Boot from multisession CD produces repeating AUFS messages  

Barry,
While developing some fixes in a precise-5.2.58/60 multisession environment, I discovered that in a certain case the multisession pup_ro1 layer gets created incorrectly. My case is triggered by insertion and removal of a data-only flash drive with saves of each state. But the problem appears to be more general, in that although the saved session directories contain either the files (which are links, BTW) OR their whiteout files, the pup_ro1 layer in subsequent boots contains both! AUFS issues multiple "user.err kernel" messages for each instance of this conflict.

Here is the evidence:
    ls -a /mnt/sr0/2012-06-10-12-05/dev/block/ (flash drive inserted):
      11:1
      7:10
      7:8
      7:9
      8:16
      8:17
    ls -A /mnt/sr0/2012-06-10-12-10/dev/block/ (flash drive removed):
      7:10
      7:8
      7:9
      .wh.11:1
      .wh.8:16
      .wh.8:17
    ls -A /initrd/pup_ro1/dev/block/ (after reboot with the drive still removed):
      11:1
      7:10
      7:8
      7:9
      8:16
      8:17
      .wh.11:1
      .wh.8:16
      .wh.8:17
Similar results appear for the /initrd/pup_ro1/dev/.udev/watch/ directory:
    4
    5
    6
    7
    8
    .wh.7
    .wh.8
The corresponding messages log messages are:
    Jun 11 15:32:31 puppypc20742 user.err kernel: [ 1258.146868] aufs au_lkup_dentry:273:rdev[19257]: I/O Error, both of real entry and whiteout found, 8:17, err -5

These messages seem to appear every time aufs re-evaluates the layering, so flood the log file. This is easily re-creatable by inserting a USB flash drive, saving, removing the flash drive, saving again, and rebooting (with or without saving).

Barry,

Here's an issue:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=78716
that I believe requires your interference, as the problem in my uneducated view is of generic nature and needs to be solved as soon as possible.

Sorry for my intrusion here and thank you in advance.

PostPosted: Mon 11 Jun 2012, 23:16    Post subject: remasterpup and miscellaneous fixes from lupu project  

Barry,
The attached package is a collection of small fixes made in the development of lupu 528 plus others made while preparing the package under precise pup. The attached tarball has the difference files for each modified file. My intent is that these should go into woof, as they are puppy infrastructure fixes. Although the fixes are not dramatic, users might try the package if they need one of the fixes or to simply verify that it does no harm.
    remasterpup2: Omits remastering of some files not originally in the puppy main sfs file, supports creation of "boot disks" without users having to modify puppy code and corrects typos in 2 dialog messages.
      #120605 rerwin: omit /dev/snd content, /dev/.udev subdirectory and modem daemons from new master (because daemons reinstalled from firmware if needed).
      #120606 rerwin: support users' replacement of stripped /root & /etc with complete directories (for "boot disk").
      #120607 rerwin: Remove indicators/files for integrated user-installed packages.
      #120628 shinobar: no change id-string for reuse. (added in "-2")
      #120721 revert 'wildcards' option (from 120605); improve /dev/snd file exclusion; exclude /usr/share/icons/hicolor/icon-theme.cache (shinobar). (added in "-2")

    delayedrun: Skips initial popups for boot disk sessions. Runs distro-specific version if present, to avoid need for developer modifications to official version.
      #120606 rerwin: skip quicksetup if /etc flag set by remasterpup2.
      #120804 rerwin: use distro-specific delayedrun if available. (added in "-3a")

    shutdownconfig: For boot disk, skips prompt for saving personal data.
      #120604 rerwin: avoid saving personal data if flag set in /etc (by remasterpup2).

    functions4puppy: Omits saving bad-shutdown indicator on multisession disk, to avoid false alarm message.
      #120608 rerwin: screen out /.XLOADED when save.

    rc.shutdown: Retains deletions during first save of personal data.
      #120603 rerwin: Retain deletions in first pupsave file by copying whiteout files.

    pup_event_backend_modprobe: Corrects indicators of active firmware tarballs and rule-initiated module conflict with modaliases for it. Adds modprobe option for later kernels/udev.
      #120608 rerwin: Always save name of installed firmware; for rule-loaded modules either blacklisted or supported by modaliases, load no module.
      #120809 Add blacklist (-b) option to modprobes using modalias, to correct blacklisting and preferences. (added in "-3a")

    connectwizard: Corrects typo that causes bogus error message in log. Adds support for frisbee if present (from 01micko, slacko), to avoid developer-modified version.
      #111118 add frisbee (added in "-3a")
      #120608 rerwin: get correct pid in wait loop.

    puppyinstaller: Saves old profile when updating a full installation, to assist user.
      #120603 rerwin: preserve user-modified files in full-install upgrade.

    functions4puppy4: Adds support for all-firmware tarball directories and corrects setting of "firmware-loaded" indication. (added in "-3")
      #120729 Add firmware_tarball_func support for firmware directory & set tarball name in firmware.dep.inst regardless of pinstall script - copied from backend_modprobe.

    MODULESCONFIG: Adds preference bcma:wl for Broadcom wifi.

    firmware.dep.3.2.18: Adds module bcma.ko to associations with firmware brcm. (added in "-3")

Please consider committing these fixes to woof (edited if necessary). Thanks.
Richard

UPDATE 7/22/12: Re-uploaded the "fixes" package (as -2) to correct remasterpup2 and add recent fixes to it. Also included a package containing only remasterpup2, for those with the original package already installed.

UPDATE 8/4/12: Re-uploaded the "fixes" package (as -3) to add functions4puppy4 firmware-tarball fix and firmware.dep update.

UPDATE 8/13/12: Added delta-3a package. Merged fix into frisbee-augmented version of connectwizard and changed delayedrun to allow a distro-specific (-$DISTRO_FILE_PREFIX) version, both so that developers need not modify puppy infrastructure scripts. Added modprobe option "-b" to backend_modprobe to retain blacklist and preference functionality with later versions of udev, discovered through 01micko's slacko 5.3.5 effort.

Just a fast and small comment :

instead of greping in blacklist files i would suggest something like " alias modprobe='modprobe -b' " and replace "/sbin/modprobe" with "modprobe" in pup_event_backend_modprobe .

Cheers

PostPosted: Tue 19 Jun 2012, 22:11    Post subject: Precise-5.2.60  

peebee - rerwin:

Precise-5.2.60

Finally got around to working a bit with 5.2.60 the past few days.

Initial setup was with eth0 and that auto configured and worked as it should without a hitch.

Tonight plugged in WiFi and went for the wlan0 setup for my:

AE1000 Linksys
Belkin 300 router

Initial setup for my belkin.81e was no problem and after I finished the system said I was connected.... 'But I Was Not!' (tried several times)

From past experience with Precise and WiFi I went and installed rerwin's 'precise_broadcom_experiment-3.pet' rebooted and WiFi connected. I had done this before in previous version of Precise with exact results but, this time I went and 'un-installed the precise_broadcom_experiment-3.pet' rebooted the computer again and WiFi still is working without the precise_broadcom_experiment-3.pet' installed. Uninstall was done via the PPM.

I know I don't have a broadcom card in my system we have before proven that but, maybe this test will help you figure out what the precise_broadcom_experiment-3.pet does (activates, resets something, etc., etc.,)

Hope this helps somemore???

My thoughts would be to 'Just Include' the precise_broadcom_experiment-3.pet in Precise, for those who may be having WiFi hookup problems with a configuration like mine... I can't see where it would hurt??? Just my thoughts mind you!

WiFi working nice so far, posting from it now!

>>>---Indian------>

PS: I might mention, I also tried Precise-5.2.60 on my old:

IBM T22 Notepad
250MB RAM

'It works very well on this old box... I mean really well and fast... again, so much for older kernels being better for old computers!'

Precise 5.2.60 beta 2 with a fresh compiling of EFL 1.2.1 and e17 71440.

I had to add autopoint from lucid's devx and that needed the cvs bin and /usr/share/gettext/archive.tar.gz to get everything to compile but so far it's stable and working fine.
