Porteus-v1_beta-i486 ready 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.

I tried to shutdown from the kdm-manager by right-clicking the icon at bottom right of the input panel and the computer froze! :shock:

Check to see if it is an issue (I will try to solve it).

Beny:
please brokenman it is possible to share the kernel .config
modprobe configs && zcat /proc/config.gz > porteus.config
[SOLVED] Kernel config

with the cripple-source of yours kernel isn't possible to make video driver
Will probably need full source headers for video driver.

Yes, this is buggy. It needs attention but i havn't had time. Help would be appreciated.

Try that

If /boot is mounted on /mnt/live/mnt/sdXX/boot

Code: Select all

cp ./arch/x86/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38

i think you can't do this because the bzimage file is into the kernel folder and not in /mnt/live

@Brokenman
Solution: add line after line 58 of /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc "TerminateServer=true", and save it as
rootcopy/etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc and reboot. Now you can logout by right-clicking Shutdown at the mentioned icon -I need to press Enter, don't know why-. Anyway, it does not freeze any more.[SOLVED] :D

BTW, I tried extracting 004-kde.xzm and editing that file; but when I tried to create it again, I got a corrupted file. A new issue?

Cheers!

cp: cannot create regular file `/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38': No such file or directory
shoud be interesting why of this message,
Looks like /boot is not a folder in the live file system. You can see if you try: ls /
The vmlinuz belongs in the boot folder as in /porteus and /boot which is on the device you are booting from (/mnt/sda5/boot)

The config from 64 bit should be available in same way ... you will need to modprobe configs first though
Solution: add line after line 58 of /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc "TerminateServer=true", and save it as
rootcopy/etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc and reboot.
Well done and thanks very much! Things are a little busy here ... moving to Brazil in 2 weeks.
BTW, I tried extracting 004-kde.xzm and editing that file; but when I tried to create it again, I got a corrupted file. A new issue?
At what stage did you get corrupt file? While repacking 004, installing Porteus to device or booting Porteus?
If while repacking then i am not sure why. If while installing it will be because md5sums.txt needs updating with new 004-kde.xzm file. If while booting it could be a bad permission on kdmrc. Perhaps try just uncommenting the line around 485 in kdmrc #TerminateServer=true

@brokenman
1.-I made a fresh copy of all the base modules from the iso-disk to the porteus folder of the usb. File system is xfs.
2.- Module size of 004-kde.xzm is 52.2 MB; extracting module by right-clicking on it gives dir 004-kde of size 128.7 MB.
3.-Even without modifying it, I copied the directory to a tmp folder and right clicked on Create module....
4.-After some time -about three minutes, I would say- a pop window appears (same directory). I inquire file size of newly created module and it reads 28.8MB.

I also tried by opening a console, cd to tmp folder and do a dir2xzm: also bad. :bad:
Uncommenting the file kdmrc at the indicated line and deleting the backup didn't help either.
I would say the bug is in dir2xzm, wouldn't you?

Are you really moving from the top list of civilized countries to a third-world one? I suppose you are fluent in br....
For a salary 3x at least I would understand it. :crazy:

OK i see the problem with the right click. The konqueror service menu points to a script in /opt/porteus-scripts called 'create module'.

Code: Select all

path=${1}
name=${2}

if [ -f $path/$name.xzm ]; then
   targ=$path/$name-1.xzm
      else
   targ=$path/$name.xzm
fi

( dir2xzm $path/$name $targ ) |
kdialog --passivepopup "Creating $path/$name now. Please wait ..... "
konqueror $path
The pipe is what is causing the problem. This last section should be changed to:

Code: Select all

kdialog --passivepopup "Creating $path/$name now. Please wait ..... " 6 &
dir2xzm $path/$name $targ >/dev/null
konqueror $path &
I'll edit this for xdialog in next release.

As for the failure building a module from console using dir2xzm .... i do it multiple times everyday (on ext3) and have never had a problem. I'll do some tests on different file systems to see if i can reproduce. Do you have same problem using: mksquashfs dir module.xzm?

I am having other weird issues (different folder sizes by extracting 004-kde.zxm repeatedly; mksquashfs crashes by about 30% of the process of compressing -the test you suggested-); I'm afraid my pendrive is broken; I'll get a new one and then report back to you, brokenman, thank you for the tips, now I have a wider view inside porteus and can be more of help to the community.........

Have a nice day!

Unfortunately uncommenting the line #TerminateServer=True doesn't solve the KDM login screen shutdown freeze problem for me.
