What Xorg driver are you using?

(if you run 'report-video' in a terminal, it should tell you? As will 'quicksetup')


Intel.

The intel xorg driver is badly broken on my laptop, tearing effects, among many others.

I always change to the 'modesetting' driver. Just exit from X, run 'xorgwizard'.

After 7.0.2 was released, I PPM prompted me to install the Quirky7.0.1 to 7.0.2 service pack and the devx 7.0.1 to 7.0.2 service pack. I installed the Quirky service pack and rebooted, and now I'm not given the option to install the devx service pack. I tried another reboot, repository refresh, and the Quirky Version Upgrade Manager, but to no avail. I have devx 7.0.0 and the devx 7.0.0 to 7.0.1 sp. The 7.0.1 to 7.0.2 sp doesn't show in any package repositories. What's up?


Ah ha, you have discovered a bug!

I have always installed both, before rebooting.
As you rebooted after installing the first, Quirky now thinks it is version 7.0.2, and does not realise the devx needs to be upgraded.

I will have to think of the best fix for that.

Anyway, if you download this and click on it, it should install:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/amd64/packages/pet_packages-april/devx_service_pack-7.0.1_TO_7.0.2-april64.pet
or:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/x86/packages/pet_packages-april/devx_service_pack-7.0.1_TO_7.0.2-april.pet

I have embarked on a fascinating new project.

The frugal installer (for x86_64 Linux) is now (828KB):
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/quirky6/amd64/april-7.0.2/frugal/install-quirky.amd64

...that is, you must be running x86_64 distro to use it. I can easily build a x86 version.

This is a self-extracting archive, created with 'makeself':
http://www.megastep.org/makeself/

Just download 'install-quirky.amd64', set its execute flags, then click on it to run it.

What is different from the 'installquirky' script, is this is designed to run on just about any Linux distro. It has utilities bundled inside it, to make up for any lack in another distro.

Frugal install only for now, but I intend to make it a complete installer for Quirky, including downloading the .iso, or whatever file is appropriate.
Thus, the current scattered files and scripts and instructions will be replaced with just one application, with a nice GUI.

That's the plan anyway.

Note, if you want to find out what is inside the archive, after clicking on it, the GUI installer will start, then look for a folder /tmp/tmp*
That folder is removed when the installer exits.

Now, that's bizarre! I just loaded the 7.0 onto the partition and it, too, leaves me with no way to connect to the Internet. That's weird. Everything worked perfectly with the USB sticks, the install, connectivity, upgrade to 7.0.2--EVERYTHING! But when I install to partition, nothing seems to be working right and things are missing.

Workin' on it.


What distro are you running on, when you run '4install-quirky-to-partition'?


Quirky 6.1.4

From one partition on my hard drive to another.

Maybe if I download the files to the fresh USB sticks and install from there I would be better off?


Booting and installing from the USB stick did not make any difference. Still no way to connect to the Internet.

There is a new intel driver just released, changelog shows heaps of bug-fixes. I will be testing that soon.


Thanks Barry, have made the changes, I will see how it goes. Jim

I finally got around to doing a frugal install of April64 7.0.2 using the live cd. The installer script worked perfectly....I installed to sdb 3.....probably the easiest Puppy install I've experienced.No problems so far.

Guys, a question.

There was an earlier report of Pmusic hanging.

My question is, why do we even have Pmusic in April?

I am far from being a audio-player expert, but Xine seems to be a nice audio player. It supports play-lists, and has that pleasant visual affects to look at while listening to music.

Xine seems like an adequate music player to me. Is there anything else essential that Pmusic, Aqualung, or any other, has that Xine hasn't?

If the feedback is no, then I reckon I will remove Pmusic and make Xine the default audio player.

good point BK. I thought with everything included in GC would install google-chrome and map all the default player type to it. however did it with Fatdog64 and the bit by spot issue blocked it from being able to load the hard drive files outside of spot user directory.
May try it with April, Spot may not bite so hard over here. Mad if you get some free time hop over to SLitaz and see how much they replaced apps of all kinds with a browser and back-end scripts. I do not know why they do not hide the browser title bar, without it you could replace almost exactly the look and feel of all our dialog based scripts.

Please remove pmusic, I only use xine, even for mp3s. And while you are at it, remove all programs in /usr/local/ except the mandatory ones. Let the option for them to be installed from ppm.

I burnt 7.0.2 ISO to a CD and booted my IBM desktop (with 1.5 GB) + intel graphics.

It booted nicely. --> 981 M personal storage and 384 M free

The devx couldn't be installed.

I ran the script for a frugal install. It booted nicely and I had 500M of free ram showing. Laughing
Everything running well so far. Well done!!

Note to barry:

My script create-3mu works with xine (and pmusic)
Which is better? I don't know. They seem to both work well.

Running live from CD on a HP Compaq nc6120 with 1.25 gig RAM and it is running very nicely. Booting was very slow, but very nippy now. According to htop (on my HDD) it is using 523mb of RAM with SeaMonkey running.
Going to try the frugal install now.

Very good. I would like to find out how low the RAM can be for the live-CD.

There are so many PCs out there with 1MB RAM. It would be nice if the live-CD boots on those.

Even if the amount of RAM is impractical for daily usage, cannot download/install anything, it is still a means for evaluation of Quirky, and can become a means of installing to drive or partition.
