Now back to seeing the blinking penguin in the upper right corner of this page using Firefox 35.01 and Flash Player 11.2.202.442-X86_64-1.

We might be able to reduce the size of the code by simply displaying the message about blocking an outdated plug-in all the time. The time new plug-ins remain up-to-date has become negligible.

Hi,
My friend gave me his new WiFi usb adapter to test.
lsusb says it's an Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188CUS 802.11n WLAN Adapter.
It connects fine to my router.

But after each 4-5 min it drops connection.
Wpa_Gui shows it still as connected and IP address is shown too.
But webpages throw "This web page is not available". When I click 'Connect' again, web is working, It still shows the same IP.

Am I missing something.

Thanks.

- Neeraj.

Hello @NeerajKolte
Check your /etc/resolv.conf. Is it accurate? seen some past evidence that this can get screwed up randomly on new router connections. Here's an example to help:
Code:
# Generated by dhcpcd from eth0
# /etc/resolv.conf.head can replace this line
nameserver 192.168.1.1
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 0.0.0.0
# /etc/resolv.conf.tail can replace this line
#
# above shows router as DNS at 192...
# above shows DNS at 8...
# above shows DNS at 0...
# above works for routers located at 192...
Here to help

My /etc/resolv.conf reads
Code:
# Generated by dhcpcd from wlan0
# /etc/resolv.conf.head can replace this line
nameserver 4.2.2.2
nameserver 8.8.8.8
# /etc/resolv.conf.tail can replace this line


Shall I add "nameserver 192.168.1.1" to it?
Thanks.

- Neeraj.

PostPosted: Mon 09 Feb 2015, 01:04    Post subject: Adding More File System Support  

I boot to RAM with no HD installed or connected to my notebook. All files are saved to an external hard drive. . Would it be possible to include native support for more file systems on these external drives in FD700? I believe that the kernel supports these but Fatdog has not included support in the past.

ExFAT, BTRFS and XFS baked-in would be nice. Larger SD cards in my camera require exFAT and I would rather not go find a Windows machine to access a card. Since that is proprietary, I would happily install exFAT after boot but I have not been able to find anything that works with FD630.
Thanks Smile

exFAT is propietary and patented by Microsoft. Many hoops to jump through.
IIRC FUSE can help with this.

NO...ONLY IFF your LAN's router is the same as that LAN IP address. The first nameserver IP in my reference shown is your LAN router where that is the pathway for you PCs to the internet. So only use that 192... address if it is:
  • the primary path to the internet
  • its IP address is what is shown (I merely gave a reference). You actual router "might" have a different address on your LAN. Your router's IP address would be the one to test and use.

Another reference assuming YOUR router IP is be at 10.0.0.1
Code:
# /etc/resolv.conf reference with router cache as 1st DNS in search order
nameserver 10.0.0.1
# if above address is NOT your router IP, change it to your router's IP
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 4.4.4.4
# end of /etc/resolv.conf changes
Hope the reference is helpful to correcting your browser issue of resolving URL addresses.

When I access my router on 192.168.1.1 and login, I see following info
Code:
WAN IP       103.243.***.**
Subnet Mask       255.255.255.255
Gateway       10.0.0.1
Primary DNS       8.8.8.8
Secondary DNS       4.2.2.2
Connection type       PPPoE

Any way what ever IP I put in that file doesn't make my connection stick.
Also it gets erased to previous values when I reconnect.
Also the content is the same when I connect through wire (eth0) but connection is persistent.
I also found while downloading (when connected with wlan0) in background the net kept alive for almost 15min, but as soon as downloading was finished it got off and I had to reconnect every 4 min afterwords.
Is there any setting for wifi inactivity time-out?

Thanks.

- Neeraj.

small thumb drive have poor connections and some also have poor supported linux drivers. Found out in multiple places and by persons its critical to get one that is proven to work well or those are the problems. Move closer to router..
Currently getting my Raspberry Pi stuff together, got microflash card and picked out the wifi thumbdrive from Amazon. waiting for it to hit US suppliers.

@neeraj: possibly your "power-saving mode" kicks in on your dongle. To disable it, run "iwconfig wlan0 power off" in terminal.

@drdeaf: exfat, xfs, btrfs read/write support is built-in (though not tested). If you want to make new xfs/btrfs partitions then you'll need to download the tool from the repo.

@ted dog: we'll see if we can release "rc" before you leave town, but no promises. Also, no raspberries2 in the works - I still owe someone who donated me nexus 7 to get FatdogArm running on that tablet.

@all: note that 64-bit firefox 35.0.1 (Mozilla build and Fatdog build) all suffer from this very annoying issue: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1122907 may be related with this old bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=417689 (I am experiencing this bug myself Evil or Very Mad )

PostPosted: Mon 09 Feb 2015, 14:00    Post subject: Silver Light Streaming with Fat Dog.
Subject description: I need to do Silver Light streaming.
 

Sorry I have not taken a much time to research this. I see some sites talking about Moonlight, and Pipelight.

I felt someone might have a package that does this already put together.

All I know for sure so far is that Netflix does not work automatically with FatDog.

I was asked to help a local Catholic Priest with his computer a laptop that uses Vista, which is, older. My first thought was to tell him to buy some new hardware. He says that he is waiting for the Diocese to give him approval/money, as he has for over a year.

I feel Fat Dog would do most everything for him, as he is not technically minded. However, the Catholic Church sends out a lot of video and podcasts, which I am sure at some point will include Silver Light. Then I would need to get his printer working, as he will want to use his printer.

Purple someone released a sfs of Chrome for FD647b2 and it runs netflix. Unsure where I got it but that should jog someone elses memory.
I use it on my Mac and its better than netflix on OSX.

Something odd at our link for 700 on the host. Do a save as and anti geany shell sripts is loaded into save directory listing. seems to setup jsapi and then delete itself.
Secondly unrelated checked with phone provider on new changes in plan. looks like we finally got what the rest of world has free teather/hotspot on dataplan. Which will greatly help my postings and downloading plus data rollover for a month.

Linux 3.19 released

New in this release is improved support for Intel and AMD graphics, plus support for LZ4 compression in the SquasFS which should make for better Linux performance on Live CDs.

Owners of Lenovo, Dell, Acer and Toshiba will now find Linux plays better with some of their unqiue hardware features, especially keyboard backlights.

The KVM Hypervisor has dropped support for the IA64 chip, a milestone in that architecture's demise
