Firstly I have Precise running quite nicely on my newish HP Pavilion 4108au laptop, which is plagued with a Broadcom 4313GN wireless card. I thought to give the 64bit pups a run, but both Fatdog and the beta Lighthouse don't like playing with the Broadcom wireless.


I am pleased to say that the wireless worked straight off with Fatdog64 630rc2. I have also persuaded it to run live off a usb with small initrd, pmedia=cd in the syslinux.cfg and the Fatdog sfs on the hdd. It boots just as fast as Precise.

Although it found and set up the wireless first off, it seemed that sometimes the browser would not get on the web, although I could ping websites ok. I did the small changes as suggested in the FAQ for Broadcom wifi, and it still works ok, and at the moment my browser is talking to the web. Maybe a glitch in the wires at my end - we'll see what happens in time.

For rcrsn51, are you sure you don't have any leftover files in your save file (especially /etc/X11/xinitrc - this file gets updated in rc2).

The blinking was on a fresh start before creating a savefile. Once I made a savefile, the blinking stopped, but I needed several redraws before the icons were correct.

[Edit] I tried increasing Event Manager > Drive Icon Startup Delay, but it still needed a redraw to get the icons right.


I can't reproduce the problem Sad One of the things that I specifically "fixed" in rc2 is the missing drive icons - missing drive icons was because Rox was slow to start. Where was Fatdog installed - in harddisk/partition, or did you boot from CD/DVD? Also, when your icons are blinking, check /tmp/udev-fatdog-drive-icon and see whether "counter" keeps increasing?

I just installed version 630rc2 to my USB thumb drive and saved an encrypted save file to it. I edited the .conf file to point to the save file via uuid. When it boots, the scrolling text states that it found the save file however, it does not prompt for a password and just continues to boot without the save file. Any ideas?


What .conf file again did you edit? Where did you create the savefile? In the root directory of the partition, or elsewhere? You can use the "savefile argument creator" (courtesy of rcrsn51) - look in Control Panel, Utility section, to build the correct savefile argument.

Ah, that explains. What command did you use to eject the disc in your script? The proper command to eject the disc is "cdrom_id --eject-media $dev".

Yes sorry that command doesn't work properly anymore. You will need to use cdrom_id --eject-media /dev/sr0 (cdrom_id is located in /usr/libexec).

No cd id - what I gave you is the command to replace "eject". You need to run:
Code:
/usr/libexec/cdrom_id --eject-media /dev/sr0

I just tried the eject binary from FD611 in FD630RC1 and it works fine.

eject
- opens the tray
eject -t closes the tray.

The binary is about 20k.

I suppose a small script called eject would also work.

#!/bin/sh
/usr/libexec/cdrom_id --eject-media /dev/sr0

I don't see a way to close the tray though.

Cheers

The eject binary hasn't changed from its initial build in 600alpha, and it still works (for the purpose it was designed).

The change has been in the way we detect whether there is a disc inside the drive - we used to use cddetect_quick (the way puppy does) but found it to be unreliable; we replaced that with cdrom_id. But detecting disc with cdrom_id has the effect of always closing the tray. Running the plain "eject" binary will eject the tray, as long as generating a flurry of udev events; one of them being telling the system to "detect disc" - and thus closing the tray again.

To avoid this problem, one has to eject and generate an udev event with a special property --- and it what "cdrom_id --eject-media" does. This special property is not chosen at random - it is the same property generated by the kernel when the physical eject button is pressed; which means now pressing physical eject button and doing "software eject" runs exactly the same code path and ends exactly in the same result.

You can still happily use "eject" to close the tray Smile

Installed fine but experiencing 100% cpu spikes plus shockwave crashes in both seamonkey and chrome.
Rc2 not usable for me, hoping for better result with next release.

My video card specs:

I have the savefile for fatdog620 on the hard-drive. Will try that with 630.
Looking forward to a successful install of fatdog 630 final.

No worries, I'm often guilty of the same behaviour Wink

Thanks, so it's Sandybridge (intel). Kirk has compiled newer drivers post-rc2, hopefully it will work better for you later.

cheers!

Maybe a dumb question:
Where is the Default Application Chooser (or similar) in Fatdog? I want to make Google Chrome the default browser.

Definitely not a dumb question Laughing
No such GUI in fatdog, but you can look into /usr/local/bin and change which browser is used by editing "defaultbrowser" yourself.

Subject description: remaster unsuccessful
 

Downloaded and use grub4dos to boot the iso file directly. The speed of boot up is unbelievable fast. Playing WAV audio files with VLC give almost perfect sound quality. Then have google chrome29 PET package successfully installed and run perfectly.

However, remaster for more than 10 times, the remaster is still failed. The remaster files cannot be booted. Remaster on both a desktop and a notebook, both failed.

I have recently successfully remaster other 32bit puppies such as Vincentvanpup and Lucid528.

Have anyone try remaster function successful ? Thank you.
