PostPosted: Tue 26 Feb 2013, 17:49    Post subject: Can Transmission for Puppy be upgraded?  

@AARF has attempted to help the community with a Torrent. This helps all of us as together download times would decrease significant over what iBiblio provides.

@AARF's torrent is racy5491 torrent

TRANMISSSION is the vehicle in most PUP distro, but the version we are using is 2.22 versus the current version which has fixed several seeding problems is at 2.77.

Sorry but also have to report a problem with X with Racy 5.4.91 on my nvidia geforce FX 5200 card.

First boot loads vesa at 1280x1024 but "exit to prompt" from the menu and screen goes blank. Typing "xwin" (blindly with nothing on the display) does bring it back.

Running xorg wizard from the menu also gives a blank screen but I can (again all blindly) press enter (for probe), the down arrow (to select 1024x768x24 instead of the default 1024x768x16), and then press enter again and I get the desktop back with nouveau loaded at 1024x768x24 and glxgears gives around 250 fps.

Oh, and the nouveau is loaded with none of the graphics missing by the way, so not sure what is going on there.

If I recall rightly, the original ffmpeg lacked network support, and someone, it might have been shinobar, recompiled it, hence the different PET in 5.5RC.

Yes.

Yes.

Barry, you recompiled ffmpeg in March to add network support and gave it the "dash one" name (ffmpeg-20111002-1-w5c.pet). This you included in RC1 of Wary 5.3. But then someone reported that the new version didn't support x11grab, and you asked that person to try the old version (ffmpeg-20111002-w5c.pet). You never got a reply, so to be safe, you reverted to the old version for RC2, RC3, and the final Wary 5.3.

As it turned out, the old version didn't support x11grab either. Both versions should have, since you had compiled with --enable-x11grab, but because of a bug in ffmpeg's configure script (since reportedly fixed), the configure script reported no error despite not finding a needed library.

Anyway, in July shinobar recompiled ffmpeg again giving us ffmpeg-0.8.12-1, which has both x11grab and network support, and you uploaded it to the Wary repo.

Same problem with Racy as I reported in the Precise k-3.8.0 thread.....will not mount an usb flash drive.
Flash drive is detected by the kernel as noted in the logs but no icon appears and Pmount doesn't even notice it's plugged in.

Errors continue on as long as flash drive is plugged in.
No problems with the drive or usb ports in other Puppy installs.

Hello, Mr. Kauler.

No problems here! Writing this in Opera 12.13 from wary 5.4.90 with enhanced Xorg. My screen has never been this nice. French localization takes a little convincing (5-6 Xorg re-initialisations plus a couple of reboots !) but it does work fine when it finally start.

So, many thanks for this. And "bonne continuation"!

Glad to note not alone in reporting nV issues which seemed to proliferate about six months ago, possibly longer. Maybe ask James & co to swap temporarily to an ATI card, for which I experience zero problems, and report back.

PostPosted: Wed 27 Feb 2013, 06:48    Post subject: latest woof download in racy wrong  

@BarryK

Sorry, in the latest racy 5.4.91 and with no additional packages yet added, not even a jwm update, and on a box with an intel i915 video. I am getting some display problems.

This is with a fresh woof build of 25 Feb.

I have attached a screeny capture example for comments and sugestions. All Woof pages are showing the same problem and won't resize smaller.

However I'm not sure if it's racy or woof having the problems.

All comments would be appreciated.

Hi BK - you have been busy. New Wary, new Racy and a new Quirky. Nice.


Report Video 1.3 - Wed 27 Feb 2013 on Racy Puppy 5.4.91 - Linux 3.8.0 i686

Manual frugal to ntfs partition and booting via grub4dos on SDcard. Using the E732 (Emachines) laptop with 2gig ram and an i3 proc.

All seems to be working well OOTB on this machine.
According to top - resource usage is virtually zero.
Nice to see acpitz temp working (40 to 42c average).
New Racy looks nice too. Overall - a luvly Puppy. Many thanks. (forgot to mention - fast - really fast - screams)

Report FYI. (quirky soon)

Manual frugal install of the latest Quirky.Just like Racy I had to copy the xorg.conf from another install to get the correct resolution and since it's the same kernel can't mount a flash drive.
Most interesting is that Quirky only seems to boot about 1 time out of three attempts..... the bootloader finds the kernel.qky and all activity ceases.Hard poweroff and eventually it'll go ahead and boot.

Racy-5.4.91

This is one 'Blazing-Fast' Puppy, I keep thinking they can't get any faster but 'this one did!'

Did an UPDATE to Racy-5.2.90 to see how well it would go.

Everything went well except for the usual few Icon drops from personal desktop programs and of course the background pic.
-----------------------------------------------------
WiFi stayed without issue:
Linksys AE1000 (usb plugin - using rt2800usb)
-----------------------------------------------------
Already had a lot of programs installed in 5.2.90 and they all worked as before!
-----------------------------------------------------
The 3.8.0 Kernel appears to be working just fine on this old box.
-----------------------------------------------------
Internet Graphics & Picture display just don't get any better, crystal clear and coloring as it should be, even in Mplayer
-----------------------------------------------------
USB plugins working fine, even my VADO camcorder/camera.
-----------------------------------------------------
For those wanting a really good Google Earth sfs program for 5.4.91:
Google Earth-6.0.3.2197-luki.sfs
You can get it here:
http://www.datafilehost.com/download-a5a90a31.html
-----------------------------------------------------
And... for those wanting to expermint with a little 'cloud' computing, (or use it for other programs, many other functions) my little cloud.pet works great in Racy-5.4.91

Thanks very much for that clarification!

My memory can be rather hazy. It's not that I'm getting old, I have always had hazy recall. As a boy, my dad used to tell that I would forget my head if it wasn't screwed on.

I am wondering if any issues are due to the 3.8 kernel. Especially video.

I have decided that Racy 5.5RC2 will have the 3.0.66 kernel. This is a continuation of the 3.0.x used in Racy 5.3. ...um, it might have been 3.0.27.
