AMD Athlon 3500 64 (1.5GB)
Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT
Slacko 5.7 Frugal DVD boot image (Non-PAE)

Boots to black screen.
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace and drops to text mode, xorgwizard select VESA, xwin and loads GUI OK.

Belkin wireless F5D6050 USB not found by Frisbee. Load at76c50x-usb-firmware.pet reboot and Frisbee connects to internet OK.

See that its the same dev version of abiword as in 5.6 which for me crashed after 30 mins of entering text and images (abiword stable as per slacko 5.5 works a lot better for me)

Tried updating graphics to NVidia, mouse locked up. Hard shutdown, savefile deleted and reverted back to more stable Slacko 5.5.

From what I did see of 5.7 it all looked nice.

I couldnt resist. Yeah. I had to download Slacko.
I opened an pdf and I used the search with Ctrl + F....as I always do. And....it seems the old bug is there....
Or is it just me.

Puppy Package Manger, search for "evince" and install that and its dependencies and it seems to be a much better alternative (installs to menu, documents, document viewer)

That occurs if you have nv set and then use the menu, setup, quick set up first-run settings menu option and check the Video Wizard option and then OK

Previously (earlier versions) I could download nvidia code/drivers, when I check now using Video Upgrade Wizard it says nothing exists for my card/kernel.

The nv stuff that comes with 5.7 however doesn't appear to support sound as there's no sound despite having swapped around Multi-Sound cards, set volumes up (and using Alsa settings) etc.

As to the rest, looking great. I like the new dialogs

I've :

added support for Belkin F5D6050 wireless adapter (PET)
installed flashplayer which works ok (except no sound)
removed cdrdao
removed inchscape (draw)
removed abiword (unstable)
removed gnumeric (old)
removed epdfview (Ctrl-F doesn't work as required)
changed the taskbar number of desktops to 2
added PupSaveHotBackup (PET)
added OpenOffice (SFS) - as replacements for desktop icons abiword, gnumeric and draw
added evince (PET) and set that as the default program for PDF files (that does support Ctrl-F ok and is generally better IMO)
Changed HTOP colours to mono
Activated firewall
Activated adblock
Installed NoScript into firefox
Set firefox download directory to a downloads directory beneath the frugal savefile directory (outside of savefile space)
Cleared firefox cache and set cache size = 0 (so doesn't fill up savefile space)
Set firefox auto updates off

504MB savefile, 394MB free space.

JMHO but I believe that the above changes could be a big crowd puller for all those currently using Windows XP (a very big audience) in view of MS pulling support for XP - and it would be nice to have such changes already installed/available via a single ISO download. As is, abiword, gnumeric and epdfview are just too old.

PostPosted: Sun 09 Mar 2014, 15:13    Post subject: Android in Slacko57. Is this a procedure problem or a bug?  

Running Live PAE on Dell Laptop

Android plugged in, but, not sure if this is what I'm suppose to see, since the MTP development began couple months ago?

Questions
  • Is this the correct system pop-up that should occur when plugged in?
  • Or, is there some steps that must occur prior to any MTP device use in the system?
Thanks in advance for any assistance

From release notes:

If you boot to blackscreen:
Try using this boot option for nvidia cards::
Code:
nouveau.modeset=0

01micko,

Maybe something at this web site would help to eliminate these Nouveau black screen boot issues.

Why is cdrdao included ?
I can't see any pre-installed apps relying on it.

I removed that inbuilt program, remastered - and its back again !

I've replaced abiword and gnumeric and draw (inchscape) with OpenOffice versions. I've also replaced epdfview with evince. Whilst the Openoffice replacements worked ok in the remastered version, evince didn't remaster as expected. I had changed the Roxfiler right click, 'Open With' and selecting 'Customise' to add in evince and remove abiword and gnumeric ...etc, and set run action to be evince instead of epdfview for all PDF file types, but that was lost in the remastering process (guessing setting run action is a local (home directory) thing rather than a global and hence not remastered).

I also removed gnumeric and abiword from the inbuillt set, but they're also back again in the remastered version.

I have however lost burn iso (burniso2cd) from the menu (or maybe that wasn't in the original?).

I didn't do any editing during the remaster process, just accepted all the defaults.

As suggested from the beginners forum by @gcmartin and @p310don I have booted the new 57 onto my older Thinkpad with the oddball Pent M processor (i686 but no pae)

I did download the non pae version and have it installed to 16gb usb which it has booted off of nicely ...everything seems to be running fine

sound ,wifi...extra thinkpad buttons all seams to work OTB

crossing my fingers this is the version I need to replace XP
