Do I use wrong code?

initrd (hd0,1)/slacko-533/initrd.gz

Should I have PMEDIA=satahd maybe

Seamonkey lack the scrollbar to the far right.


I tested with saving to ntfs partition and in a previous beta I did observe this. There is a reason. The ntfs-3g driver is very finicky and will mount ntfs READ ONLY if there is a single error or suspicion of an error. This is a safety mechanism to preserve data. Consequently, your newly created save file doesn not get mounted RW (read/write) at shutdown and your session is not saved.

You are warned to defragment the ntfs drive before saving in the shutdown save process. It should also carry a warning to run CHKDSK.EXE which checks the disk for errors.

If the problem persists there may be some damage to your drive.

There is a work around which I have explained before. I'll do it again.
When you boot and you get no desktop open a terminal and type.
Code:
gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache

restart X, reset your wallpaper. Things should save now but be aware that if there are errors on the ntfs drive it is possible the save file will not mount.

This begs the question.. "Why does it mount at all if it didn't save?"

The answer is that in the initial RAM disk there is a different, older version of ntfs-3g which is a bit more forgiving.This one mounts the save file. The version in the main filesystem is newer and more pedantic.

Outstanding! Very Happy

One minor problem. The Bibletime pet included in the PPM does not install the required QT dependency. QT has to be selected separately.

Thanks,
Jim


Thanks Jim, I found the problem, a space in the dependencies list. I'll upload a new packages list in the next few days and a PPM update will fix the Bibletime issue.

I like this Slacko, but (as with each), still get screen artefacts with Intel card. Someone suggested 2.17.0 intel driver fixes this, but I simply can't find it. Tried the Slackware current 2.19.0 driver - no good. Any clues?

I think this is a WOOF bug : rc.shutdown should take care for that with checking for mount | grep DRIVE | grep -w 'ro' && echo "Failure to mount DRIVE read-write" >/dev/console && dialog --yesno "Do you want to return to desktop ? if $? = 0 && kill `pidoff poweroff` Very Happy

Thanks 01micko and Thanks Karl Godt.

If the error comes back I have to do that.
Maybe rcrsn51 was right that it had to do
with reusing an old savefile. When I deleted both
and started all new it has survived now for some 4 boots.
Even an update to the PAE thing.

I am not only a total noob I am confused too but my poor memory
tells me that only Jemimah on her EEEPC and maybe Pemasu
on his derivatives can do such things so correct me if I am wrong
but neither Lupu not Slacko or Wary nor any official Puppy has
implemented sleep or similar tricks? Am I wrong?

But maybe the kernel itself has sleep and then one only have
to find out how to address that from within puppy???

ozsouth.. can you run lspci -nn | grep -i vga in a terminal please? I want to see if it's an intel Brookdale video chip, of which I have one that gave trouble in earlier Slacko but charlie6 and MHHP found a good work around. That work around was removed but may still apply.

---

drblock2.. did that script to unload nouveau not work? Nouveau works fine for me but the same script is needed when installing the proprietary nvidia driver, which unfortunately wouldn't compile for me for your older chipset. In saying that, the nv driver should be fine for your card, just no hardware acceleration.

The non-pae version would work very well on both of
my laptops, if xorg setup had the i810 driver needed
by 700m Inspiron with 852/855gm graphics.
