I had posted DISTRO_SPECS and PUPSTATE here, but doesn't matter now. Smile

Make a smallish save, reboot then run the resize. Post the contents of pupsaveresizenew.txt in the root of the home partition, if it gets created.

EDIT: did you base this on slacko-5.5? (as seen in the DISTRO_SPECS). If so you will need to hack the init script for support of the new way we are increasing savefile space. It addresses an old bug where the next puppy booted got the treatment, bad if you run multiple pups.

Ok this was my fault.

Sorry for posting this here. I had asked 01micko about it, thinking it was a bug in Slacko 5.7, so he told me to post here, but it was really a bug in Studio 13.37.

Whoops! Again, my apologies.

I've fixed the issue. Re-download it tomorrow, and it should be good.

Bonus: New kernel!

Don't use save files, store data outside the Puppy file system and use symbolic links to these stored directories and/or files.

I never thought of that! Another save to directory option via savefile symlinks - opens a whole new world of possibilities! Only downside is the symlinked dirs cannot get copied to ram!

Should be another thread!

Can this be fixed without the whole download?
Text edits, installing new file(s) etc?
Cheers

I edited the initrd, so no, probably not.

Also upgraded the modules contained therein.

I'll get one of the kids to download.
I put the leetsave file on an ssd,
and after linking 15 gigs of folders (.wine, /home/me/Documents,
hydrogen, and zynaddsubfx) I had a nice session going.

Reaper running a modeled guitar plugin, into Guitar Rig 5
Hydrogen playing a 16-part beat
zynaddsubfx doing an ambient Space Choir preset,
and all of them routed to rakarrack, and recorded
with timemachine, then edited with audacity.

This on and old dual 1.9 ghz cores, 2gig ram rust-bucket.

I notice some graphic-redraw issues with the taskbar, it seems
to claim about a 1-1/2 inch zone at the bottom of the screen,
that is drawn over the stretched wallpaper. I forgot to
configure audacity from alsa to jackd, and the system had
a lockup, (when I pressed play, with the imported timemachine
.w64 file) where only the taskbar's portion at the bottom
remained visible. And when the system boots, the separate wallpaper
drawing operation can be seen. The full screen is drawn,
then the taskbar portion draws over it. I do like the
taskbar transparency, and the icons are not cartoons,
and their colors don't clash. Cool
Very pleasant to work with.
Cheers

PostPosted: Tue 09 Sep 2014, 10:43    Post subject: Bug: Universal Installer does not recognize second USB drive
Subject description: (when booted from USB with external hub)
 

When I boot of my USB drive, plug in a second USB drive (recognized by file system, and Bootflash install puppy to USB, and mountable), the second USB drive is not available for installing puppy.

That is, boot off of sdb1, plug in sdc1 to external USB hub, puppy universal installer won't offer it as an install destination. Seems a little less than universal!

My system:
Puppy Slacko 5.7, moved to USB, patched for IWL wireless not finding firmware file through symbolic link, devx installed. Runs on Panasonic Toughbook CF-30.

If this is a duplicate, it is because I can't search a thread only on the forum.

Thanks everyone, the installation works great!

PostPosted: Tue 09 Sep 2014, 11:07    Post subject: iwlegacy iwl4965 firmware iwl3945 not loadable thru symlink
Subject description: iwl4965 driver can load .ucode firmware file, but not through symlink
 

I've seen this before, but it took me about two days of fooling around to find the report and fix it, so here it is again, along with the bits that make it worse.

I have a Panasonic Toughbook CF30, running puppy slacko 7.5, with an Intel 4965 wireless chipset. The same will apply to Intel 3945 wireless chip drivers.

The iwLegacy driver loads the 4965 driver fine as part of the autosetup, but the driver can't seem to load the firmware for the chip. Replacing the symlink for the .ucode with the real file is all that is required. I would have been on to it sooner, but the wireless wizard offered to load a driver, but didn't tell me the 4965 driver was loaded with an error, so wlan0 hadn't been created. So that's a feature request...get that fault info out on the GUI at network setup so there's less hunting.

So I went off and got 3/4 of the way to building the driver from source....got tired of it after building /makeing modules.h but I still didn't get the include path straightened out for gcc.

Then I found out that others had found that moving the firmware binary (the .ucode file) to replace the symbolic link worked, so I did that, and magic (well, not quite, simple network setup worked as my AP is set up WPA-PSK, but wireless wizard did not.), the Tougbook came online.

Thanks for everyone's patience...

After you plug in sdc1, left click on it's desktop icon, to mount it. After it is mounted.
Does the Universal Installer now see it?

sdc is actually recognised--as a USB Hard drive(!) Discussion moved to noobs area...I am trying to figure out how to get the superfloppy install to work for a machine that might recognise the card as a floppy, and I am short one lynchpin.

PostPosted: Sun 14 Sep 2014, 23:27    Post subject: Loss of window manager during huge firefox downloads  

I am not at all clear that this issue is specific to Slacko 5.7 and not JWM and Firefox or located elsewhere.

Today, Slacko 5.7 (running from my flash drive, Toughbook CF-30 hardware (which has no trouble booting from flash drive) got into a state where I couldn't recover the correct screen about 50% of the way into downloading a Gigabyte or so (various recommended puppy isos, along with 40 meg of random stuff from microchip.com) to the flash drive that I am booting with Plop. There were two Firefox windows up with multiple tabs, and a third download window.

I was using screen 2 to work on some smallish text files for work, and walked away for awhile.

When I returned, I could no longer get the firefox screen from window 1 to minimize off of display screen 1, and it wouldn't go away from screen 2 or 3, either. I could get a new tab up, but I couldn't get typing in the google search box. Eventually, the massive download completed some hours later, and I clicked on start, then shutdown. I couldn't see the dialog, so I hit enter -- which caused the machine to shutdown and reboot more or less as I wanted.

I have devx and libreOffice installed. Firefox reports revision 17.0.11, no plugins installed. Wierd--firefox seems to be popping its title and menu bar on and off the screen tonight...I don't think firefox had a title bar up when I was having a problem.

How are you setup to save?
Save to a save file or save to a partition?
How much free space is on the flash drive?

What you describe can be caused by a save file filling up. You say you were downloading a large file.

Also could be caused by the memory filling up.
With a flash drive Puppy install using a save file.
Memory is used and limited timed updates to the save file. This is to limit writing to the flash drive too much.

When downloading large files or program packages it is very important the place you download to has the free space available.

If you download to, /mnt/home, that is outside of the save file, in the top layer of the flash drive. Stuff will be directly written to the free space on the flash drive.
