Precise Puppy 5.5alpha1

February 10, 2013 — BarryK
Here it is! Release Notes:


Running it now, and I see some bugs in /tmp/bootsysinit.log:
configuring network interface eth0

cheching if interface eth0 is alive...cups: started scheduler.
Starting system message bus: /usr/bin/dbus-uuidgen --ensure ; /usr/bin/dbus-daemon --system
ls: cannot access //network: No such file or directory
usage: /etc/init.d/rc.umntshares stop --unmounts shares in //network
ERROR: modinfo: could not find module slamr
interface eth0 does not seem to be plugged in... skipping
configuring network interface wlan0
interface wlan0 has not been configured... skipping

...I don't know what is causing the "//network", but rerwin can probably advise how to quieten that "slamr" message.

Next thing, I intend to download latest SeaMonkey source and compile it.


network error

[i]usage: /etc/init.d/rc.umntshares stop --unmounts shares in //network[/i] It comes from this in /etc/init.d/rc.umntshares [i]case $1 in #start) echo "nothing to do" ;; stop) umount_samba_shares ;; *)echo "usage: $0 stop --unmounts shares in $HOME/network" ;; esac[/i] Harmless. Should have left the "start" param in I guess.

bugfix of "network"

"Ok, lowered the verbosity, just echoes "ok" now.. Another bug fixed too, I discovered earlier today, so that was good timing!

pesky modem(s)
Username: Rooey
"this is either something or nothing, at the end of a previous version of archpup was a request to setup/connect a sierra wireless 598u via terminal, which resulted "run the command wvdialconf it should look for your modem, and generate a file called wvdial.conf in the folder /etc it looks something like this below, fill in your account details for phone, username, and password. If you already have such a file from a working system, just copy it to /etc [Dialer Defaults] Modem = /dev/ttyACM0 Baud = 460800 Stupid Mode = 1 Auto DNS = 1 Init1 = ATZ Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0 ISDN = 0 Modem Type = USB Modem Phone = your-dialup-phone-number FlowControl = Hardware (CRTSCTS) Dial Command = ATDT Username = your-isp-account-username Password = your-isp-account-password" hopefully this is the answer for my pesky sierra 312U *remember this is arch, is it the same for precise pup?
