Could you please advices what we should try next?
apologies, we put out a quite old build of mate, hence blueman and dbus-python are out of date..
maybe try:

Code: Select all

getpkg blueman dbus-python
this will get the latest from slackware current, compatible with python3.8..
will look into trying to update mate..

@paf, thanks for the feedback. :)

I can confirm the issue that you reported. We're still investigating it, but in the meantime try this guest module and let us know if it works for you:

(3.55 MB)

YES! Many Thanks!

This Virtual Box guest module works perfectly.
No automount of the shared folders, but that is Virtual Box problem, as mounting the shared folders on the command line works perfectly.

Can I help with something more?

No reason to apologies. I am very happy that this project is in active development and thank yo again to development team.

I have run the command and I got the xzm modules saved in this folder: porteus_is_the_best_and_development_team_rocks :))
After I activated, i tried and ...icon appeard in tray area. I managed also to pari my headprones and tried to listen the first song: Tina Turner - The Best and it worked. I heard the song in headphones.

Thank you so much agan and again.
PS: as I mantion before, with the same changes loaded, on the same laptop, the RC2 is using less Mb than RC1 with alomst 30-40 Mb.

All the best,
amplatfus

Yeah, some services are not starting during the boot, which is wrong, of course. I manually changed the main service script. Download the module again (same link) and give it a try :good:

The Xdialog and kdialog files appear to be missing since a script I have that uses them doesn't work in 5.0.

And rc.local_shutdown is not displaying savedat file usage when shutting down.

yeah, we removed it, because there's nothing using it.. what sort of function do you use it for?

do you get any output if you run it directly in a terminal?

Yes.

Code: Select all

save.dat file 33% full.  Used: 130M  Free: 268M
guest@porteus:/etc/rc.d$ 
When shutting down there are 5 or 6 errors listed which may be the problem. I will try to reboot and write them down.

As for the missing dialog files I use them in this desktop script to display the usage of my savedat file.

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
# Add to /etc/rc.d/rc.local_shutdown.  And make rc.local_shutdown executable.
#                                      sudo chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.local_shutdown

Not working here. I think because of this:

so, just a simple info dialog..
you could use /usr/share/porteus/gtkdialog.py as an alternative... '/usr/share/porteus/gtkdialog.py -h' to see the usage.. in this case, something like:

Code: Select all

 /usr/share/porteus/gtkdialog.py -p "save.dat file $percent full - Used: $used - Free: $avail" -d info

Blaze, dmesg shows only the fingerprint.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ dmesg | grep ELAN

[    1.261301] usb 1-1.1: Manufacturer: ELAN

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ dmesg | grep pinctrl
[    0.217115] pinctrl core: initialized pinctrl subsystem

Looking through the config, I see this as well:

Code: Select all

# CONFIG_X86_AMD_PLATFORM_DEVICE is not set
Also:

Code: Select all

# CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG is not set
.......this one had to be y when I compiled for touchpad.

Code: Select all

# CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_ACPI_IBM is not set
.......this is set as module

Code: Select all

# CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI_SHPC is not set
......this I set as y

These are from what I found on the net while compiling a kernel for my touchpad, I'm not sure if all are needed for other machines, ......but my touchpad wouldn't work until I had all these set.

Thank you ncmp. It does indeed work. :good:

I've tried different options with it but all the windows look the same; -d info, -d err, -d warn. Same with -p and -s. Am I missing something?

Added in 5 hours 20 minutes 12 seconds:
Yes, missing the different icons on the left of the text and -s used with -p is not bold text. duh :mega_shok:
