BillToo,

I haven't used the getnvidia utility, maybe James has some ideas with that. I uploaded a 319.17 pet if you want to try it:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/pets/600/nvidia-319.17-3.8.7.pet


The new pet is working great, I find that the proprietary driver works
better than the nouveau driver when using two monitors.
Thanks very much for the pet.

PostPosted: Tue 07 May 2013, 14:17    Post subject: Seeing LVM(s) in the booted FATDOG system  

Edited: Sorry for this question to forum. It appears as dm-0 on the desktop. I mis-understood that icon's reference. The system accurately references the LVM

A boot time to desktop question
I booted by selecting the "...LVM and MD...", then hitting tab, and adding savefile=direct:multi.
The system boots fine to desktop. On this system, I list the HDD and start the SWAP as follows:
Code:

# swapon /dev/sda9

But, the desktop only list the following partitions, below, for mounting.

Question
    Should I see the LVM as an available for mounting?
Answer: YES! its the dm-0 icon reference in desktop.

Do we have Chrome for Fatdog 6.20? If so I missed it.

There is a Kindle Cloud reader app for Firefox which should work, though I have not tried it.

Myself, I don't feel like reading while sitting at a keyboard. What I've done is to put Kindle for Android on my B&N Nook Color, after upgrading to Android 4.1.2 with CyanogenMod.

That report doesn't show a radeon module loaded, which is needed for you video card, or you would need the proprietary fglrx module. I think the radeon 4650 is well supported by radeon, check that you don't have something in Grub, or whatever boot loader, that would cause radeon not to load and try booting with savefile=none in case you have something configured wrong.

That report was not of downloaded FD620.iso , but from a remaster made on an HD 5770 adding ati_13.4 pet . I realized the error late , but I went to bed and today I post the right report for the downloaded version . I didn't have the time to try to add later the correct driver because I had to give it back to it's owner . Sorry for missleading... Embarassed

In running the Hardinfo tool for local use on the PC, I found couple issues. I share them here. And, in doing so I say/suggest that these are very very minor items as all information is contained in the reports (cli/desktop).

# hardinfo -r > /tmp/hardinfo_report.txt

Thus, its messages in Shared Directories section (above) and the info in the RAM section (below) not appearing.

Again, this is minor.

What were the pets you installed that caused the startup to fail?
The attached Picture belows shows the FATDOG PETs installed and the servers listings. Remember: The servers were enabled and started before reboot with a save-session to the Live media.

This is the behavior I have using the initial use of the 620-Final ISO with a Live media. ALSO, remember that in an earlier post I share that when ONLY SAMBA was addressed with ONLY the SAMBA Extras PET, then, after enabling and starting before shutdown with save-session to media, ONLY then, did the server(s) behave as expected. From that extra step at the beginning with another Live media disc forward, did the servers maintain expected behavior on all subsequest save-sessions and reboots.

The ISO's md5 matches and the base system files, on each of the 2 Live media disc, also match with each other.

I will continue to save the "bad" LiveDVD for another week or so before retiring it.

Any additional information or tasks I can provide to assist problem understanding/discovery, I will do per request.

This is a repeat of an earlier question to the developers:

Thanks for the PETs you provide for video drivers that are both built-in as well as available via the PPM REPOs.

But, I cannot find anywhere a set of steps that we, Live media users, should use to installed the video PETs appropriately in the running system.

To rephrase an earlier post requesting understanding:
  • Is there a preliminary set of things that is recommended to be done, prior to installing a new video PET?
  • Or is the new Video PETs smart enough to manage its inserting into the system and survive across save-session reboots on the LIve media disc?
If this is already documented somewhere, I apologize as I have not found it for this version of FATDOG.

Any guidance would be helpful

Thanks in advance.

Sorry gcmartin, I am unable to reproduce the problem.
I booted with a clean ISO, choose the multisession option, then I installed all the pets in your screenshot (except Google-Chrome and JavaRE - those are not in the official repo) using Package Manager. When done, I opened control panel and I enabled and started the Samba service. Then I clicked the "save session" button on the desktop, and the I rebooted, and when the computer finished rebooting I can see that the Samba service is up.

PostPosted: Thu 09 May 2013, 07:12    Post subject: Fatdog64 621  

Fatdog64 621 has been release. See first (or shall I say, second) post.
It is a bugfix release mainly for panning and eject problem (and a few other minor bugs); otherwise it has the same kernel and same browser version as 620.
While it is recommended for new users, existing 620 users who don't perceive any problems don't need to update.

Thanks for the follow-up.

Past post issues
I can only assume that the problem must be with using the Java PET and attempts with Chrome....which did work.

From this point on, I will stick with the Official Repo offerings to avoid troubles. Over the years, FATDOG has been very well behaved with little to no issues..

Current system
Since I restarted by installing SAMBA extras and save-session on reboot, I have not had the problems resurface. And, I have not installed the unofficial items as yet.

Question on a Google Voice PET
Iis this PET intended for the SeaMonkey browser?

Thanks

PostPosted: Thu 09 May 2013, 21:22    Post subject: SAMBA in V621  

Using 621, the PPM has changed.

The SAMBA management tools are GONE from the screen (used to be called SAMBA extras for the built-in version of SAMBA). It appears that the intent was to remove the old SAMBA version reference.

Those management tools are necessary and they are not included in the built-in desktop.

Can the PPM be updated with the reference to the management tool's PET?
