Frugal install on my HP550 is looking good.

Broadcom WL wifi driver has been compiled for k3.2.28-4g and uploaded to:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=76495&start=20

This is a delta file pet that needs to be loaded first followed by the multi-kernel pet which is in post #1 of the same thread.

Frisbee and Seamonkey and pnethood so far tested with the wl driver - all good.

Cheers
peebee

Superscan Network Scanner is broken. (It has been in several recent Puppies.) Both IP-range scans and port-range scans of my LAN fail.

The alternative is PeasyPort.

Full install to hard drive gives following error:


Ok, thanks for report.

I have found why and where this happens in a full install and it will be fixed.

EDIT:

majorfoo,

If you could gunzip the attached file, boot live, replace /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit with this file in the full install it should fix the full installation. I have also removed the /media symlink as it failed to have the desired effect and has become an unnecessary redundancy.

Hi 01micko et al,

Using 5.3.5.3 via Multi-session live-CD, "Google Earth sfs" has a huge speed improvement over my 5.3.1 (with a message it needs a better driver) and glxgears averages about 75 frames per second (about 50 fps with 5.3.1).

When loading from the CD "copying to RAM" takes about 50 seconds, whereas with 5.3.1 it only takes about 2 seconds. It seems more likely that this is because of some action or inaction on my part rather than some inherent change in this later version of Slacko.

I'm away for a few days, thus a lull in testing.

My regards

Placed in directory /etc/rc.d of full install and attempted re-boot.

Hmm.. doesn't that normally show the HOSTNAME in full install? Such as puppypc1234?

Might be a woof level bug, I'll do a full install and check it out.

Seems bootmanager doesn't like "slacko" in the name. Just rename it removing "slacko" and it shows up. I'll fix that, no problem.

Are you using google_earth-6.2.2 from Tman? It works fine for me. I tried to make an sfs but it failed with a weird error, something to do with dpkg-deb. I may have to compile that in slacko.

I'm using Google_Earth-6.0.3.2197-luki.sfs, I made that using the pet
from lucid puppy and it works with every version of puppy that I've
tried it on.
It's 34mb in size, it should still be in the saluki repository I think.

Everything is working well except sound, I've fiddled with alsamixer
and retrovol but I can't get sound to work.
There is a set of 5.1 speakers on this pc, 5 speakers and a big
subwoofer, will rattle the windows normally.
I can hear a couple of the speakers pop during bootup.

I have vector linux 7 and slackware 14rc3 on this pc as well and sound
works in both of them so I know they should be working.

Hmmm.... try alsawizard, and with >1 card use the multiple soundcard wizard, in alsawizard.

SoundBlasters should work ok. The only ones I have are ancient ISA ones, no mobo to test atm.

Subject description: Brief test - 5.3.5.3
 

Manual mixed frugal install with kernel on USB and main sfs/save file on HDD.
Initial boot to desktop with working sound, wired ethernet & Nouveau driver.

Whilst the Nouveau driver is much better, a manual install of the proprietary
driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-304.43.run) provided smoother motion with video.

Extra fonts plus the following pets were installed and tested.

    google_chrome-21-slacko|Access the Internet
    flashplayer11-11.2.202.238|Adobe Flash Player 11 browser plugin and Preferences. Note, this may not work on older PCs, use instead an earlier 11.x or even 10.x
    fontwizard|Configure fonts for LCD
    Blue-Tripack|JWM themes
    faenza_lrx_new|no description provided
    xdotool-2.20110530.1-3|no description provided
    tempiconsvg-0.11-i486|temperature monitor
    PupControl-2.2|PupControl Panel
    PupShutdown-1.8|PupShutdown manager
    PupClockset-1.9|PupClockset manager

Only two minor problems showed up which may be related to the inclusion of "paw_and_bones":

1. The svg text on tempicon is about a third its normal size.
2. The right click "Change Network Tray Icon Theme" no longer works.
