sfs and desktop icons

If I re-arrange desktop icons, then add an sfs like devx_racy_5.5.sfs, and reboot... the desktop icons are messed up.

Is there a way to prevent that, to keep my desktop icons order?

Hi Barry,

The Service Pack for Wary 5.5 does not show the version update to 5.5.1 in DISTRO_SPECS and therefore HardInfo does not report the update either. While I can edit DISTRO_SPECS to reflect the version update, the change is not permanent, but session specific only. I am wondering if there is a bug in the pinstall.sh script?

Also, while running Pupmode 13 I am noticing that sometimes my mounted flash drive is reported as: sdb1 and following a re-boot it is reported as: sdc1 Note that I have two flash drives plugged in all the time and at same location, but I am not sure why the drive labels are changing intermittently... maybe a timing issue with hardware detection?

Thanks,
Monsie

I made and tested xfe-1.34 in racy-5.5
The download links are:

fox-1.6.47-i686.pet


http://www.datafilehost.com/download-177cfd2b.html


xfe_NLS-1.34-i686.pet


http://www.datafilehost.com/download-13ee2b18.html


xfe-1.34-i686.pet


http://www.datafilehost.com/download-4e46ee01.html

EDIT: I tested these pets in Wary-5.5 and they work in it as well.

I'm reporting what I guess is a bug. It seems the HP 210-1010NR touchpad just doesn't want to allow right click. I have tried many things to get it working and still doesn't work on Precise and Racy 5.5

See this thread for what I have personally tried (maybe something I tried could end up working if someone with more knowledge in this could try it):

Barry can you please compile all kernels for 486 ? Because many computers won't boot on racy, like the amd k6, k6-2, k6-3, geode lx, geode gx1. Is it easy and possible ? Thanks in advance.

Yes, the version update value in /etc/DISTRO_SPECS does not survive a reboot.
This is due to it getting reverted by the 'init' script in the initrd.
Although this is a "bug", it doesn't have any adverse consequences.

Yes, the device node assignments can vary with more than one usb drive plugged in.
It is ok, just a bit disconcerting to see.

linuxcbon,
to be on the safe side, should I run these commands before remastering *any* puppy? No side effects?

You can do it , no problemo.
You can add these ones too :
Code:
 rm /root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel
 mkdir /root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel


Regarding:

/root/.macromedia/
/root/.adobe
/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel

I don't think 'remasterpup2' will copy these to the remastered CD.

Wary-5.5 2.6.32.59 first boot on
Processor Information
Socket Designation: Socket-A
Type: Central Processor
Family: Other
Manufacturer: AMD
ID: 62 06 00 00 55 00 00 00
Version:
Voltage: 3.3 V 2.9 V
External Clock: 66 MHz
Max Speed: 1200 MHz
Current Speed: 1050 MHz
Status: Populated, Enabled

RAM: 1GB

frugal installed on ntfs partition on a non-WindowsOS IDE-HDD .
Boot ok, and I like them both the old-style setup way and the quicksetup way.
The old had an unexpected long delay from keyboard-layout to time-zone. Have an us-keyboard but in older days there had been also the possibility to select Language.
Will check code for an if case that makes it "jump over this section" if I have time.

Anyway for others : Seamonkey is really heavy on the load, I am suspecting libflashplayer - that's also on the todo list.

When remastering, the users have the choice to keep these or not. But can you make it by default in puppies ? (ps : it seems that recently-used.xbel cannot be overridden).

PostPosted: Sun 31 Mar 2013, 15:49    Post subject: Xorg Mega Package  

If another Xorg upgrade package is developed for Wary, could Xorg be moved up to 7.7, specifically X server >=1.13?
I just played around with Upup Raring, and using a quick and unscientific test (xlock -nolock -mode goop)
I have found display to be smoother than default Xorg in Wary... that's a first for me (going up, that is).

Barry, can you add this workaround by default in xorg.conf for intel graphic cards ? That corrects a bad fonts display.
Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier "Intel"
    Driver "intel"
    Option "DebugWait" "true"
EndSection

PostPosted: Sun 28 Apr 2013, 18:07    Post subject: Possible bug in Racy video driver?  

Barry,

Edit: The xorg.conf work-around shown above fixed it.

Edit 2: It was back this morning....


I did a full hard disk install of Racy 5.5 with the updates on my Toshiba laptop. It's awesome fast and everything works. (Thank you for this!)

But I ran into a problem that made me think something was wrong with Grub.

Exactly every second time I power up after shutting down Racy, I don't get the Grub menu screen. If I start the machine, see the menu, start Racy, then shut down and power up again, I get either a blank screen or the manufacturer's splash screen and that's all. Hitting the power button to shut down and trying again brings up the menu screen. 100% repeatable.

I discovered it may not be Grub, because it doesn't do this after restarting after shutting down the other OS (win).

It turns out, since Racy is the second menu choice, if I hit the down arrow once and then hit enter even without the menu showing, it boots Racy, but the text screens are rendered with a grey background instead of black.

The system information tool reports that Intel Mobile 4 series chipset is what's in this machine.
