New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

sns-tool experimental version

Post#1 by francois » 02 Jan 2011, 03:40

From fanthom on old slax-remix thread:

@all
seems that i was damn wrong about WPA and WPA2 :)
WPA can use CCMP and TKIP
WPA2 can use CCMP and TKIP

i have merged both options together - please try this version:

sns-tool is also trying to determine encryption and suggest correct choice now.

feedback is very welcome :)

I have tried the sns-tool experimental version. It works great with wpa2, except that the sns-tool-configs.sq4.lzm that it generates does not seem to load wifi at next boot. Are there other testers with the same result?

I believe I had the same issue where the module was not loaded properly, and that was the version of sns-tool included in Porteus V.09. I had to manually copy the files per the instructions given at the end of the sns-tool script.

Thanks!

Moved from 'i486 lzm modules' to 'Development' as this version is not stable.

What do you mean? You want me to run the experimental package from a remix installation with no other module in it? And with a brand new save change file? If this is what is wanted, I will be glad to do it.

@francois
this is the queue of files (sometimes archived and compressed as modules) from which live system is assembled:

Code: Select all

1. modules in alphabetical order from /porteus/base
2. modules in alphabetical order from /porteus/modules
3. modules in alphabetical order from /porteus/optional (when 'load' cheatcode is used)
4. changes saved on device/folder/slaxsave.dat (when 'changes=' chaetcode is used)
5. files stored in /rootcopy dir
6. files copied from initrd to live system (/etc/fstab)
so if you put sns-tool configs in something above number 5, then there is a chance of overriding the files. Please make sure that lzm module made from config files has a big number, for example 9999-sns-tool-configs.lzm so it will be activated as the very last.
I will tweak sns-tool script to add '9999' number to generated lzm.

Good. I forgot about that one: numbering modules. I try it immediately and report.

Finally, the module order did not made the difference. However, as I work with the hdd install, I was able to go around the problem by eliminating the old save folder from the menu.lst:
changes=/slaxremix_612_v07cfg

There might be to many files in there. Would you have a cue as to which folder I should delete or is is too trivial an issue?

Would you say I should rebuild the hole OS installation to fit with remix09 (for example it seems that virtualbox module does not work no more under 09 from 08)?

If it's only the sns-tool problem then you dont need to wipe off everything, just use /rootcopy dir or delete following files from your saved changes:
/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1
/etc/rc.d/rc.local
If there's more discrepancies, then the best idea is to start from a scratch and port most valuable settings from v08.

vbox wont work for sure as it was compiled against different kernel version.

One other piece of feedback on sns-tool--in the version that comes with Porteus v09 (and your experimental version), there are a couple of calls to dolphin at the end of the script (dolphin /root and dolphin $dir &). In 32-bit Porteus, Dolphin is not installed as the file manager, so sns-tool should be calling konqueror in 32 bit and dolphin in 64.

The experimental version worked fine for me :)

This was not enough to do the job. I will have to start from scratch.

In Porteus V09 32bits I am using kwifimanager with 2 configurations (work, home), and it works for me, just as it was with SR 09, too. That was not the case with SR V08, there I had to use the sns-tool of fanthom.

The new kernels do this job ok. I just don't know why I have to press the "Activate" button twice -not doubleclick- to get a response by the second press. Now I have kwifimanager configured in rootcopy.
Porteus is proud of the FASTEST KDE ever made.....(take akonadi, nepomuk and soprano out and you will have a decent OS).

have no idea (never used kwifimanager - to be honest).
---------------------------------------------------------------------
closing as this version is included in Porteus-v09 and no more experimental (and renamed to pns-tool).
