Fatdog intel video driver

Does it have it's own brightness and contrast controls ?



Anyone?

A friend is thinking of building a low powered intel setup with fatdog.

Windows intel drivers often have brightness controls so wondered if fatdog intel drivers have the same?

If we're talking about a laptop, then yes there are brightness controls for intel. But the details very depending on the laptop. See:

Might still apply to a desktop, don't know. Every desktop monitor I've seen has controls on it.

So does your TV but you don't expect to have to walk across the room to change it.

If you have a dark picture on a page ( for example astronomy ) you shouldn't have to keep getting up from your computer chair to a wall mounted monitor 4 feet away to change the brightness back and forth.

Does fatdog have any other players apart from VLC as standard?

Wonder if this exploit will be a problem with the VLC firefox plugin as a lot of people are talking abut this hack online.

I think, if you filter out the noise, the few people who understand the code say that it only affects 32bit applications.

Thats only the kernal

https://www.mail-archive.com/langsec-discuss@mail.langsec.org/msg00192.html

Linux kernel LZO
NOTE: Only i386/PowerPC are impacted at this time

But when using the media exploit.

Libav LZO
NOTE: ALL ARCHITECTURES/PLATFORMS are RCE capable

FFmpeg LZO
NOTE: ALL ARCHITECTURES/PLATFORMS are RCE capable

All users of FFmpeg, Libav, and projects that depend on them, should
consider themselves at risk to remote code execution.

When running ram only does fatdog have any type of limit.

Will it see 32gb DDR3 as usable temp space?

Hi Everyone,

I user TJK wanted to run puppy from external usb3 solid state hard drive (SSD) but also wanted to use latest kernel 3.15. See the discussion HERE.

So I suggested him to use stemsee's Fatdog64-631 with stable kernel 3.15.1.

Now he is has a problem

Thanks everyone for your comments and suggests...

Neeraj, I decided to install the Fatdog64 that you suggested. I liked everything about it -- even an option to use a non-journaled Ext4.

One big problem, when quitting Fatdog64 I was given several options:
1) I was presented the root password and I chose to change it to one of my own.
2) I was given the option of various systems -- I chose non-journaled ext4 and I checked encrypted
3) I was asked to enter password for encryption
I think that was it...It powered down without incident.

Here's the problem, when I boot the computer into FatDog (using the USB bios option), FP does not locate the USB SSD!! I tried saving and quitting FP in different ways and same result. Anyone have a suggestion on how I can get FatDog64 to find the USB (and saved data)?

could anyone help.


Thanks.

- Neeraj.

Probably need the waitdev boot parameter:

Yep, minus what it sets aside for the main sfs and kernel.

Hello @PCpunk

If you have booted from a DVD, simply allow Fatdog to save back to the DVD. On reboot, Fatdog will take care of EVERYTHING for you without your need to do anything placing you in desktop as if you never left. Everything that FATDOG would ever need, resides on that DVD. It will not change any other peripherals your PC might have. Safe and stable!

If you attempt to change to other media from DVD, then some user planning is involved.

Hope this helps
