So, where is rc5 so we can test your changes? :)
He might have more to do before rc5. I think he done a lot in the short time he been back. I'm not nick picking you for asking him.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

@alexgorr

Code: Select all

ALSA lib control.c:843:(snd_ctl_open_conf) Invalid type for CTL default definition
cannot open mixer: Invalid argument
Your download might be corrupted. If you try strace without the -c you will get more info (lots).

Alsamixer is part of 001-core. Check to see if your md5sum is ok.

I also get this. Some help with it would be appreciated.

I have a lot more to do before next release. Need to fix USM, and do a lot of testing on each desktop. Need to test the update mechanism and integrate it into the update GUI.
How do i become super user?

@alexgorr, @brokenman
Maybe you don't have alsa-utils.mo in your system.....
Recently, as of May, I had to bump 001-core because of outdated packages. This is my actual version. Try it.

@brokenman: As far as my time is available, I will assist you regarding KDE....

You need to add imagemagick and libwmf

Regarding error sharing a folder in nemo. You need to start: smbd
I just tested in my current version and it works after typing: smbd
Please wait for next release to check again.

Maybe you don't have alsa-utils.mo in your system.....

Why would I need this for english? I don't think this is the cause of the alsa problem. It is more likely that alsamixer (without an argument) doesn't understand the asound.conf file which hands over to pulse.

For those finding alsamixer throws an error try issuing: alsamixer -c 0 or alsamixer -c 1

I've experienced that also. Not able to recreate how though.

I can't reproduce this. Can you please give a little more info?

What mode are you booting in?
Are you doing anything right before this happens?
How long after boot does it happen?
Can you reset the wallpaper after it happens?

@alexgorr, @brokenman
Alsamixer issue: You are missing the file /var/lib/alsa/asound.state, You have a null-link to it in /etc. It is a generated file, then it doesn't appear in memory images but in memory changes; "alsactl store" generates it! (found in Google)...
BTW, I don't have any asound.conf in etc, and my alsamixer works.

Maybe not a bug but just a functionality waiting to be implemented:
There is no contextual menu offering deb2xzm in rc4.

And:

Code: Select all

root /home/guest/Downloads # deb2xzm intel-linux-graphics-installer_1.4.0-0intel1_amd64.deb
bash: deb2xzm: command not found
Thanks.

1. Booting Cinnamon 64-bit ISO, as guest, no save.dat due to error. A few modules.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ /mnt/live/mnt/isoloop/porteus/base
bash: /mnt/live/mnt/isoloop/porteus/base: Is a directory
guest@porteus:~$ su
Password: 
root@porteus:/home/guest# ls /mnt/live/mnt/isoloop/porteus/base
000-kernel.xzm  001-core.xzm  002-xorg.xzm  003-cinnamon.xzm
root@porteus:/home/guest# ls /mnt/live/mnt/isoloop/porteus/modules
root@porteus:/home/guest# ls /mnt/live/memory/images
000-kernel.xzm/  003-cinnamon.xzm/                              mychanges.xzm/
001-core.xzm/    firefox-48.0b6-x86_64-1.xzm/
002-xorg.xzm/    flashplayer-plugin-11.2.202.626-x86_64-1.xzm/
root@porteus:/home/guest# 
2. At least 1 time, using Firefox full screen, closed firefox, wallpaper gone.
3. 10 min?? Not sure.
4. Yes.

And yes, it is hard to reproduce. It is not consistent which implies a memory corruption problem.

Yep.
1. Booting Porteus Cinnamon x86_64 from SSD, as root (with login=root cheat code), on the ext4 partition. A few modules:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# ls /mnt/sdb1/porteus/base
000-kernel.xzm  003-cinnamon.xzm                    05-devel.xzm
001-core.xzm    004-firefox-47.0-x64-3.2-ru-1.xzm   crippled_sources.xzm
002-xorg.xzm    010-locales-ru-utf8-noarch-2b3.xzm
root@porteus:~# ls /mnt/sdb1/porteus/modules
VirtualBox-5.0.24-porteus-v3.2rc3-x86_64-1prt.xzm
flashplayer-plugin-22.0.0.209-x86_64-1.xzm
nemo-actions-fix-by-blaze.xzm
unrar-5.3.11-x86_64-1gv.xzm
root@porteus:~#
The same story
2. At least 1 time, using Firefox full screen (1920x1080 (16:9)), closed firefox, wallpaper gone.
3. 10-30 min?? Not sure.
4. Yes, but blue screen after a certain time may come again.
