Peter, it's really easy to fix.

Instead of..

Code:
#One or more words that identify this distribution:
DISTRO_NAME='Slacko Puppy'
#version number of this distribution:
DISTRO_VERSION=6.0.8.1
#The distro whose binary packages were used to build this distribution:
DISTRO_BINARY_COMPAT='slackware'
#Prefix for some filenames: exs: slackosave.2fs, slacko-6.0.8.1.sfs
DISTRO_FILE_PREFIX='slacko'
#The version of the distro whose binary packages were used to build this distro:
DISTRO_COMPAT_VERSION='14.1'
#the kernel pet package used:
DISTRO_KERNEL_PET='Huge_Kernel'
DISTRO_TARGETARCH='x86'
DISTRO_XORG_AUTO='yes'
DISTRO_DB_SUBNAME='slacko14.1'


do something like this

Code:
#One or more words that identify this distribution:
DISTRO_NAME='SLXpup Puppy' #change to TLX for Tahr
#version number of this distribution:
DISTRO_VERSION=6.0.8.1
#The distro whose binary packages were used to build this distribution:
DISTRO_BINARY_COMPAT='slackware'
#Prefix for some filenames: exs: slxpupsave.2fs, slxpup-6.0.8.1.sfs
DISTRO_FILE_PREFIX='slxpup'
#The version of the distro whose binary packages were used to build this distro:
DISTRO_COMPAT_VERSION='14.1'
#the kernel pet package used:
DISTRO_KERNEL_PET='Huge_Kernel'
DISTRO_TARGETARCH='x86'
DISTRO_XORG_AUTO='yes'
DISTRO_DB_SUBNAME='slacko14.1'

PostPosted: Wed 11 Nov 2015, 18:28    Post subject: Request for addition of QT4-FSARCHIVER
Subject description: Useful for backing up
 

I would love to use LXPUP as a backup method but I can't seem to get QT4-FSARCHIVER installed in it to use. I tried today on version 13 by finding a PET on a japanese website, but I get a fail due to a missing liblzo2.so.2 file.

My intent is to be able to boot from the usb, use that particular program to clone the partitions to external hard disk, and then be able to boot from USB again whenever necessary to reinstall the backups.

I am not very good at the mechanics of LXPUP but if you could consider adding this to the toolkit I would appreciate it greatly!

Thanks!

Subject description: boot issue with external monitor
 

Ok, well, I guess most folks have moved on to another bone to chew however, I need to share a problem encountered in LxPup 15.05 PAE....

Running a .2fs "save" file for a particular laptop, one sad day I elected to plug an external monitor into the laptop's vga port. It Worked fine.

HOWEVER subsequent reboots will not load mouse or keyboard without that monitor plugged in.
Of course, after finally figuring the problem out,I tried reversing it with "Monitor Settings"(Exec=lxrandr) in Applications to make it go away, but the (wrong) setting was persistent....of course I saved sessions after tweaks.

To make a long story short, I had to replace xorg.conf from /root/.etc/X11 folder with a version from another .2fs "save" file by booting up in that "save", copying the xorg.conf to a neutral zone on the usb stick, rebooting into the bad" save" and overwriting the bad xorg.conf.

This fixed it.

Unknown if it's particular to LxPup 15.05 PAE, or my old HP 64 bit(win7) laptop, or me but if it's not my gut feeling is it has to do with lxrandr...

PostPosted: Wed 18 Nov 2015, 08:11    Post subject: LxPup-15.11.3-s-pae  

LxPup-15.11.3-s-pae is ready to download.
md5 = 510c31dc05d70f79a57eb82a1b5ff642 from 30-jan-2016

This is the Slackware-14.1 version of LxPup based on 01micko's new 32-bit woof-ce built slacko-6.3.0 but with kernel 4.2.5-pae from Stemsee - with many thanks to both of them Wink

This is a "proper" LxPup and identifies as such, so upgrade from LxPup-15.06 should be possible however there are 2 files that will need to be deleted after the upgrade:
    /root/.config/autostart/firewallstaterun.desktop
    /root/.config/autostart/freememapplet_tray.desktop

I would be particularly interested to hear from anybody using the following drivers:
    Broadcom wl (only available after activation)
    MediaTech/Ralink MT7601u
    ndiswrapper

The devx is here
The kernel sources are here

Cheers

The mt7601u driver needed an initial "depmod -a", but then it worked fine with a TP-LINK TL-WN727N adapter in PWF.

Interesting - is there anything in dmesg? Does lsmod show the wl driver loaded?

If you have a chance - does vanilla slacko-6.3.0 support your wifi?

I'm interested because:
a. this is a new version of the wl driver - 223.271
b. I had lots of problems compiling it and then getting it to load correctly without giving kernel signing errors under k4.2.5
c. I used to be able to test with my ancient HP550 laptop with a 4312 device, but this new wl seems to ignore it (b43 works).

So I've included it in the iso without being able to fully test.....

Thanks for your feeback
peebee

p.s. I don't know the difference between a driver and a module Sad I thought wl was a driver - hmmmmmmmmm

Again interesting....was this before or after a reboot?

Stemsee has said he will include the driver in his future kernel builds....but I think the firmware will still be needed in addition.

I can test this as I have a usb wifi dongle with the mt7601 chip (sold to me fraudulently on ebay by a seller who described it differently - I got a refund)

This was the first run of a frugal install before rebooting or creating a save file/folder.

My pet has depmod -a in its pinstall.sh but I don't think it gets run properly when building a new system with woofy...so a reboot is needed - or I need to force a depmod -a on first boot.

I'm testing lxTahrPup.

The first thing I noticed is that there are 2 trays? That's not good. Because when I applied my customizations there was another tray behind I could see it clearly.

In my experience, if I delete:
Code:
rm -rf /root/.config/lxpanel


The issue disappears. There is a dir: /root/.config/lxpanelx which remains of course.

You could also create a retro lxPupTahrpup, using the 3.4 kernel, that's what I'm using right now 'cause puppy was unable to recognize sound and network on bootup with kernel 3.14 in this old machine.

Never seen that - suspect it must be something you've done....

Removing hidden config files is a dangerous occupation with unknown results!!

The retro version of LxPup is LxPupPrecise-15.09 with k3.2.48
