But why is it refusing to load all modules from base?
the only explanation is a corrupted module.
please try to mount it with 'mloop nVidia-310.32-porteus-v2.0-rc2-x86_64-1ftm.xzm' command.
Idiot me not thought of that possibility... I checked the md5sum after downloading it (on another PC), but not after saving it and running it from the USB stick.
Anyhow, what do you folks think of the idea of some bold and red info / warning text
when for some reason, like corrupted module, the insertion of a module failed?
According to Porteus 1.2 md5sum aon a x86 machine, the md5sum should be okay:
Code: Select all
rava@porteus:/mnt/sda1/bin/linux/64$ grep nVidia-310.32-porteus-v2.0-rc2-x86_64-1ftm.xzm md5sums.txt
rava@porteus:/mnt/sda1/bin/linux/64$ md5sum nVidia-310.32-porteus-v2.0-rc2-x86_64-1ftm.xzm /media/extUSB03/porteus/base/nVidia-310.32-porteus-v2.0-rc2-x86_64-1ftm.xzm
So, according to the md5sum text file the module should be okay... Has anyone else tested that very module?
I now try to activate it by hand on the console on the same machine to see if I get any more info.
Since darkstar.ist.utl.pt is currently not available, I recommend adding, at least commented out, in /etc/slackyd/slackyd.conf
Code: Select all
repository slacky = http://slack.isper.sk/pub/slackware-14.0/
(I had to comment out the slacky = http://
darkstar.ist.utl.pt/slackware/addon/slacky/slackware-13.37/ line and insert http://
slack.isper.sk/pub/slackware-13.37 to have slackyd working probably, but finding the info was not easy since trying to open http://repository.slacky.eu/slackyd.txt
via web browser got me only a redirect to google , only the google cache got me the needed info.
