You have to edit one of the thunar files before you compile to get rid of root warning. I can't remember which one at the moment.

The only way I know of getting rid of the double entries so far is to use thunar-1.4.0

This did the trick at removing the root warning.
Code:
--- ./thunar/thunar-window.c
+++ ./thunar/thunar-window.c
@@ -832,7 +832,7 @@
G_OBJECT (window->spinner), "visible");

/* check if we need to add the root warning */
- if (G_UNLIKELY (geteuid () == 0))
+ if (G_UNLIKELY (1 == 0))
{
/* add the bar for the root warning */
infobar = gtk_info_bar_new ();


Hardly worth running a patch, just replace
Code:
if (G_UNLIKELY (geteuid () == 0))
with
Code:
if (G_UNLIKELY (1 == 0))
in thunar-window.c

Has anyone gotten Getnvidia to work?

I am having problems, but do not want to report a bug if it works OK for others.
Could be something I am doing or not doing.

hi bigpup,

it has worked for me even without an nvidia card but i can't test the resulting .pet

so if someone could test (it may not work so don't try it on an important save).... this is the latest nvidia for noPAE https://www.dropbox.com/s/sgtagysd33rkxsr/nvidia-glx-340.46-k3.14.20.pet?dl=0
it would be interesting to know if it will also work on the PAE tahrpup, or if we need a separate driver

First test....... made two disposible frugal installs.(pae and non-pae)

Code:
Chip description:
VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation C61 [GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a] (rev a2)



Non-pae immediately froze up on reboot. Pae got the message in the screenie,tried to use xorgwizard but went to a prompt and froze up.
On the pae version I exited from nouveau to modesetting before installing the Nvidia driverin an attempt to prevent a driver conflict.

I'll try a newer Nvidia chip a bit later.

Tried to compile the 173.14.39 nvidia driver on my GeForce FX5200 machine but the kernel module fails to build. Using the installer or getnvidia the result is the same. This was the noPAE TahrPup with k3.14.20 so perhaps this kernel is too recent for this driver and maybe they will do a patch soon. It could be that it is me muffing something up but I have managed to do this several times before in various other pups.

I notice that xorgwizard does not offer me the vesa driver. I tried switching to modesetting instead and blacklisted nouveau in boot manager but report-video still says that the driver in use is nouveau. The nvidia installer does not complain about a clash with nouveau which it usually does unless you get rid of it.

I was able to compile the proprietary nvidia driver after installing
the kernel source and devx in quickpet, then downloading the
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-331.104.run for my graphics card from the nvidia site.

I let the installer remove the nouveau driver,rebooted and exited to
the prompt again,ran the installer again and let it update
xorgwizard,then rebooted once again to the desktop.

Totally crashed and burned in the pae version. Rebooted and got an error message about xorg config....,went to xorgwizard...chose Nvidia...test x....incorrect resolution but clicked "ok"......went to a blinking cursor and froze up necessitating a hard poweroff.Seems ok here in non-pae.

This is basically what I am trying to do (get this 173.14.39 driver) with the same result.

At the very end of trying to build the driver I get an error message:
etc/opencl file not found

I thought I'd make sure that I had the latest nvidia driver installed.

I exited to the prompt and switched to the spot directory which holds
the proprietary nvidia driver,then entered:

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-331.104.run --update

It downloaded and installed the latest nvidia driver, I let it update
the xorg.conf then rebooted.

I'm running the pae version of tahrpup.

I just checked the nvidia site and I *was* running the newest driver, it
downloaded and installed the previous driver!
I'll have to wait and try it again when a new driver comes out and see what I
get but this driver is working fine.

Hi,
These are my Computer specs,
Processor : Intel i3-3220 CPU @ 3.30GHz
Memory : 6gb
Motherboard : Intel DH61BF

I installed Tahrpup6 to my 1gb usb manually using isolinux.
I wanted to create savefolder on my hard drive. (I use Fatdog primarily this way. I keep base sfs and savefolder on hard drive and at booting load them in ram, keeping them on hdd speeds up my booting.)
But at shutdown it only gives me option to make savefile and that too in my usb only.
Could you suggest anything I should do.

Thanks.

- Neeraj.
