back forward arrows

Post#1 by Seq_Res » 10 Feb 2011, 04:14

When in remix everything is okay, but in porteus, 'back', 'forward' and all other arrows cannot be shown. They look
very uncomfortable, like these:

Everything looks fine here. I believe you are the first one to have this problem, and i am sure others would have definitely noticed this. Is this the root account or have you made a guest account?

I will upload the firefox module for you, if you don't mind can you delete the one you have and try a clean one?

Yes , if you use a guest account , you have not an access to /root/.firefox or /root/.mozilla for config file .

@ponce
downloaded, and replaced the original one, and porteus refused to work any more. Restored, recovered.
error message said kernel bug...., no way to copy the error message.

Please put the module in your optional folder and try activating after boot. If it fails to activate please issue: file /path/to/firefox.lzm and post the output.

You still havn't stated if you are using root account?

@brokenman,
I use root, only root and 'always fresh'.
@karis,
I tried it again; first put in 'mudule' folder, then in 'base'; in both cases, I got error message from mazilla--which is a pop-up window,
i think you must know. When I tried to restore the original one, system failed, error message occupied almost a whole screen.
this time I let at stayed there for quiet a long time and gave an 'analysis', then recorded only several lines:
[ 90.2266686] BUG: unable to handle the kernel paging request at f8287ad0
....<several lines, show something like IP... SMP...all the system devices ...>...
[ 90.2270000] Pid : 3338, comm: kfind not tainted 2.6.37-porteus #1 P5QPL-AM/System Product Name
.... < lines >.....
[ ..............] <here show register values like EAX= EBX=...
---- < lines > ....
[ ...............] Stack .....
[ ] Call trace ......
possibly it is a result of hardware failure; but such things never happened in remixV09.

Re: back forward arrows-libiconv problem?

Post#10 by Seq_Res » 23 Feb 2011, 02:13

I reinstalled porteus to the same usbkey and found that it is probably the module libiconv makes the faults.
without libiconv, firefox workds, but some other applications need it.
