Porteus-v1.0-alpha-x86_64 calls for testing

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.

activation scripts are in /usr/bin/activate and /usr/bin/kactivate

If KDE is found activate then activate calls kactivate

ok, but when I install a program formats XZM and active it, menu 'kde disappears, and I can't point to any application only reboot put things right.

@all
working on a BETA which should be ready this week.

KNOWN BUGS:
- sleep mode for laptops doesnt work
- some wallpapers are not recognized by KDE
- Kmenu is messed up when 'kbuildsycoca4' is run (after activation of a module)

HACKS:
- 004/~.kde4/Autostart/task: taskbar fix
- 001/etc/modprobe.d and rc.M: blacklist/load rt2860sta (not sure if it's a real reason of oopses)

TO TEST:
- someone with nvidia GPU - please check if solution from here:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions ... nt-860976/
can solve nouveau issue for 1.0_alpha

CHANGELOG:
- added 'fumount' function to cleanup script inside initrd (if umount point is 'busy' during umount procedure then is remounted 'ro')
- linuxrc now fully support 'lazy' devices (slow usb/cdrom which needs extra time for initialization), fstab is always correct (thanks Ahau for bug report)
- added 'nomagic' cheatcode, updated /boot/porteus.cfg 'Always Fresh' mode and /porteus/cheatcodes.txt. Ahau suggestion.
- added 001/usr/bin/changes-time script
- ported some 32bit stuff: start_here.sh, docs, extlinux (great job guys!)
- xmodtools, extpkg, rempkg. ..., ...

TODO:
- write start_here.bat (for windows users)
- write g4d install bat (for windows users)
- rewrite kactivate/kdeactivate with xdialog (xactivate/xdeactivate)
- many, many small fixes still ahead of me....

Cheers
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

@fanthom that fixes the issue with Slackware current. Will apply it to Alpha 1.0 and report back with an edit.
NOTE:
KDE segfaults :( and only xfce works here :)

Re: Porteus-v1.0-alpha-x86_64 calls for testing

Post#35 by Ahau » 02 Mar 2011, 00:27

RE: Kmenu issue-- I'm hoping this will be resolved in your beta release with KDE 4.6.1. However, I still wanted to record a few quirks I've discovered while playing with this, in case 4.6.1 doesn't resolve it:

If I boot into text mode and activate a module, then startx, the problem does not occur.
If I boot into KDE, activate the module, log out and then back in to KDE, it does not resolve the problem.

If you activate a module and navigate (in Dolphin) to /usr/share/applications, the folder will appear empty. If you open a console and cd to /usr/share/applications and enter 'ls', porteus crashes, citing a "stale NFS handle file".

If you open a console before activating a module, navigate to /usr/share/applications, enter 'ls', then activate the module, and then start the desired application from a different console (e.g., 'gimp'), go back to the first console, and hit 'ls' again, then the files in /usr/share/applications are visible, and you can run kbuildsycoca4, and the icon becomes visible in the application menu. You can then activate other modules, run kbuildsycoca4, and they will become visible in the kmenu.

buggy, eh?

Posted after 1 day 1 hour 13 minutes 24 seconds:
@fanthom- adding the nouveau-kms.conf file to my system breaks it. I get a black screen, no video comes up. had to ctrl-alt-F6 to get a command line, to delete it. The good news is that it has been fixed in the latest kernel release candidate, according to the last post in your link.
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!

@Tonio, Ahau
Thanks guys for your help. just compiling rc-7 kernel for BETA and dropping /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau-kms.conf. (brokenman - please also do)

@Ahau
thanks for your work on 'Kmenu' issue. KDE-4.6.1 should be ready in few days. Hopefully it's also fixed upstream :)

Cheers

Ok, I know I'm like a dog with a bone when it comes to this Kmenu/Stale NFS issue...I can't seem to leave it alone.

Anyway, I found a post on the slax forum from Slax 6.0.9, where the same exact issue occurred. It was reported by fundamental, with a solution by markds:
markds wrote:
fundamental wrote:
Possible AUFS/Squashfs Issue

Code: Select all

root@slax:~/Desktop# find /usr/>/dev/null
find: /usr/share/applications/kde: Stale NFS file handle
root@slax:/usr/share/applications# ls
/bin/ls: cannot open directory .: Stale NFS file handle
Could be a bug with httpfs (I had vlc-086e.lzm activated over httpfs and the issue went away after deactivating the module)
(not a httpfs problem, as the same occured with mysql and crack-attack modules activated)
(Perhaps there is some incapatiablility with modules made under old versions of aufs/squashfs)
Seems to be the case of compatibility. This stale NFS file handle issue only occurs when I insert modules on the fly that were created using older versions of squashfs.

In any case I managed to update the kernel to 2.6.28.1 and compiled in the squashfs, etc as from Tomas' build.kernel script. I had to manually tweak a few things and add a patch for the squashfs3.4 against the 2.6.28 kernel but it works. The mksquashfs/unsquashfs uses both processors, but I get that annoying "TIOCGWINZ ioctl failed, defaulting to 80 columns" warning. Has anyone fixed that yet?
Is this of any help?
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!

@Ahau
thanks a lot for your help (as usual). unfortunately 'kmenu disappearing icons' bug is still here: Kde-4.6.1 and Kde-4.5.5. you were probably right - it's not kde but rather aufs causing this :(
will try to find out more, info gathered by you is very helpful :)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
STATUS UPDATE

KDE-4.6.1 closed 2 bugs:
- plasma crash with kwin opengl effects on when some apps were launched
- wallpapers are always displayed properly

2 Kde related bugs are still opened:
- taksbar size: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=265051
- system doesn't wake up when you close laptop lid (powerdevil issue).

2 system related bugs:
- 'kmenu disappearing icons' bug when module is activated - this bug has highest priority now.
- 'no process left in this runlevel' bug during shutdown after high CPU activity (may be also aufs related) - will try to track it down tomorrow.

KDE-4.5.5
- no bugs (except of 2 system related ones)

looks like 1.0 will be shipped with KDE-4.5.5 :)

EDIT://
'kmenu disappearing icons' bug is closed now :) Thanks Ahau and brokenman for help!
just one left and BETA is out :Yahoo!:
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
