I made a pet of a small memory game named lpairs, it doesn't have a
high scores feature so you'll have to remember your high score Smile

It should create a menu entry in the fun section of the menu but it
can be started with grun or alt-f2 which brings up gexec.

PostPosted: Sat 30 Mar 2013, 12:28    Post subject: dm-crypt save file
Subject description: dm-crypt module does not load
 

Need some help here, I'm stuck.

I used the fatdog64-620b2-cd to make an install on a sdcard, with bootloader syslinux. All works fine but I can not use a dm-crypt save file.

At first boot I made an encrypted save file, and rebooted.
I booted without boot parameters, choose the new savefile on the sdcard and this is the error after typing my passphrase:

device mapper: reload ioctl on temporary-cryptsetup-1900 failed, etc.
failed to setup dm-crypt key mapping for devices /aufs/devsave/fd64save_dmcrypt_.ext4 , etc.

I checked and the dm-crypt module is not loaded, so I tried the boot parameter

boot: fatdog loadmodules=dm-crypt

But no change so I tried this addition to extlinux.conf next:

append loadmodules=dm-crypt

I can load the module with modprobe dm-crypt, so it exists.

Am I on the wrong track here?

Subject description: dm-crypt module does not load
 

@Hans,

Let's try to narrow the problems.
1. How does the machine access the SD card? Is it via in-built reader, or do you use external card reader connected via USB?

2. In any case, once you booted Fatdog, what is the name of the device - do you see it just as a disk ("sdb1", or "sdc2" etc) or do you see if as "mmcblk0p1" or something like that?

3. Boot your Fatdog as usual, mount your SD card and then open terminal, and check what's the type of the savefile by typing "file fd64save_dmcrypt_.ext4". You should get something like this:
fd64save_dmcrypt_.ext4: LUKS encrypted file, ver 1 [aes, xts-plain64, sha1] UUID: 7a6d815c-8454-4ca3-abf6-600aa470350c
Anything else means somehow the savefile is corrupt.

4. Try booting with the original Fatdog ISO with the SD-card in it, but during boot, when the menu shows, press "tab" to show the boot command line (near the bottom of the screen), and append "waitdev=5" so that the boot process will wait for the SD card to be recognised. Then press Enter. Watch carefully, see what "drives" that it scans for. Hopefully your SD card is also scanned.
And then see whether it gets used.

I just tested creating and booting with encrypted savefile (boot with original ISO with savefile on USB flash drive), and all works as expected, with dm-crypt loaded automatically. No extra loadmodules is needed.

@gcmartin,
This is a known issue - smokey01 reported this to me late last year, but I decided not to do anything because:
a) it is optional (ie pburn works fine without it)
b) nobody makes or use vcd anymore - everyone has switched to dvd by now.

cheers!

PostPosted: Fri 05 Apr 2013, 08:36    Post subject: NVidia 64-bit driver
Subject description: Reboot/start-up problem (can't detect screens)
 

Hi.
I recently bought a new 64-bit laptop/netbook which has a Nvidia Gefore GT 650M graphics card (2MB).
I booted up Fatdog64 via USB stick and then installed this version (Fatdog64-620 beta2) onto sda1, reboot the netbook and works brilliant! Then from there I went on the pet install manager and downloaded/installed nvidia 304-64 driver, expecting that after reboot it would detect the graphics card ready for use.

When I rebooted the netbook, I got the following log:


    Starting X desktop...

    /usr/X11R7/bin/xinit: giving up
    /usr/X11R7/bin/xinit: unable to connect to X server: No such file or directory
    /usr/X11R7/bin/xinit: server error
    To restart desktop, type "xwin".
    To shutdown, type "poweroff", to reboot, type "reboot".
    If desktop failed to start, type "xorgwizard" to setup.
    #


I tried "xwin" again, but the same error log came up. So then I had a go using xordwizard.

In the Choose driver dialog I chose "new Nvidia driver (KMS)", because before installing the nvidia pet I checked the hardware kernal which stated "nouveau"... assuming this is the right one.

On the next dialogs I chose "1366x768" and 32-bit colour depth.

on the next screen it says that the screen is not listed in supported resolutions. This confuses me because the RAM boot-up from USB stick detected them fine. I tried testing this selection but it failed the test (15 seconds)

The conclusion seems to be that I have messed up the fatdog64 configuration by installing the nvidia 64-bit driver pet. I'm not sure if it's also to do with the savefile, as I installed the pet BEFORE making a savefile on reboot.

Can anyone (or the guys who wrote this distro) help me with this problem?

Thank you. p.s. I'm fairly new to linux, so I hope I made sense and not being too slow.

If you go to Nvidia's website you'll find that card uses the 310.xx version. For beta2 that would be this one:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/pets/600/nvidia-310.32-3.7.10.pet

310.32 is Nvidia's major.minor version
3.7.10 is the kernel version used in beta2 (this will change for beta3)

The ATI/Nvidia packages have to be made for whatever kernel version is being used.

You'll probably want to make a new savefile, that's where any changes you made are stored, including the wrong Nvidia pet package.

Hopefully we'll have beta3 out soon. That should be our last release before final. It will have a different kernel. I'm not sure we'll make new ATI/Nvidia pets for beta3, but we certainly will for final. So for beta3 don't use the same Nvidia pet that you used for beta 2.

I don't know if this has been talked about in this thread, but I found a super-strange bug.

I was simply copying large files, nothing special, from the hard drive to a USB drive, but nothing to or from the linux filesystem part (not root, usr, bin, etc).

Slowly, the save file got smaller and smaller until it filled up and showed a red message at that top that it's full.

I tried the exact same thing with 6.0.1 and it did not fill the save file at all, so I think the problem may be with this beta.

Subject description: dm-crypt module does not load
 

Hello Jamesbond

The answers to your query:
1. How does the machine access the SD card? Is it via in-built reader, or do you use external card reader connected via USB?

in-built

2. In any case, once you booted Fatdog, what is the name of the device - do you see it just as a disk ("sdb1", or "sdc2" etc) or do you see if as "mmcblk0p1" or something like that?

mmcblk0p1

3. Boot your Fatdog as usual, mount your SD card and then open terminal, and check what's the type of the savefile by typing "file fd64save_dmcrypt_.ext4". You should get something like this:
fd64save_dmcrypt_.ext4: LUKS encrypted file, ver 1 [aes, xts-plain64, sha1] UUID: 7a6d815c-8454-4ca3-abf6-600aa470350c
Anything else means somehow the savefile is corrupt.

not corrupted

4. Try booting with the original Fatdog ISO with the SD-card in it, but during boot, when the menu shows, press "tab" to show the boot command line (near the bottom of the screen), and append "waitdev=5" so that the boot process will wait for the SD card to be recognised. Then press Enter. Watch carefully, see what "drives" that it scans for. Hopefully your SD card is also scanned.
And then see whether it gets used.

Yes, it is used

Furthermore:
1- it loads from sdcard when I use the cd, no problemo, just not when booting from sdcard
2- It detects another encrypted save file fd64saveSDA3_crypt_.ext4 of mine(not LUKS), this loads fine when booting from the sdcard

The error I get when choosing the LUKS encrypted file is:
failed to setup dm-crypt key mapping for devices /aufs/devsave/fd64save_dmcrypt_.ext4 so is it not there where it goes wrong?
Normal not-encrypted savefiles and not-LUKS-encrypted savefiles load fine, no problem.

I tried putting the save file on an ext2 usb-disk, the save file is found on this disk and even mounted but the error is still the same(read something about encrypted savefiles need to be on ext2, my sdcard is ext3)

So what is this error about setting up 'dm-crypt key mapping for devices /aufs/devsave/fd64save_dmcrypt_.ext4'?
I tried finding out but can't find anything on save files regarding dm-crypt device mapping.

I tried this as last line in extlinux.conf
append savefile=direct:device:mmcblk0p1:/fd64save_dmcrypt_.ext4

The save file is found, I also think the file is opened with the passphrase because it is mounted but the error stays the same.
And I seem to be the only one with this problem, why?
I will try grub instead of syslinux when I find some time.
If anyone has some input, I would love to hear it.

cheers,
Hans

Hi Kirk, cheers for your reply.

Okay... I deleted the save file and that fixed the screen problem (i.e. back to RAM mode and list of screen resolutions are back).

Unfortunately, I tried the nvidia-310.32-3.7.10.pet and it brings the same problem back up after reboot. So for now I've deleted the save file and just using fatdog64 without the nvidia driver.

I think this is something to do with my hardware. Do you want a full hardware spec of my netbook?

@Hans,

Thanks for the reply. When you installed to SD-Card, did you use the "small initrd" option?

@wjaguar,

That's odd. What immediately comes to mind is that your USB flash drive failed to mount, so when you copy files to it you're actually copying to your savefile.

cheers!

Jamesbond,

I just tried the big initrd on the sdcard and you are right, this time the savefile loads. Does this mean that the split-off fd64-620.sfs loads to late ? Or to be more specific, dmcrypt needs something that should be in de small initrd but got split off in the fd64-620.sfs?

cheers

Exactly. Let me have a look at this in more details.

EDIT: here is the fixed split-initrd. Please give it a try and see if that works for you.

Note: the attached is a real gzipped file. So gunzip first, then chmod +x, then run it.

cheers!

It didn't seem like it. I had the USB drive's directory open in a window, I could see the files.

It certainly copied to BOTH the USB drive and save file. I just used the standard GUI method of copying, dragging the file and choosing "copy" from the menu.
