WARNING: this version is now obsolete, to get slax-remix-v05 check out this thread:
http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=57979


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WARNING: it's an unofficial slax release so please report any bugs, problems or requests in this thread only.

WARNING: please do not upload any modules created by squashfs4-tools (sq4) on slax site cause it may confuse users of normal slax-6.1.2 and make bigger chaos in modules section, use external sites instead, thanks.

Slax-remix FAQ
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who may be interested in slax-remix?
- people who are having troubles with compilation of custom-kernel like described in this HOWTO: http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=53917
- users with hardware not supported or not fully supported by standard Slax-6.1.2 kernel: 2.6.27.27
- power users who wants to try/test out features of 2.6.32.7-zen6 kernel, more info: http://zen-kernel.org/included-code
- bleeding-edge users who are not afraid of using (not necessarily well tested) slackware-current software - bugs expected :)

How does it look? (old v03 release)
http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/34/slaxremixv03.jpg

How to get it?
download from here:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/d2mdomqgakn/slax-remix-v04.iso
md5sum: b57ce41e099d206cca4248e8b383bbde

How to make live-usb version?
Same as in normal Slax: extract content of iso file to your usb stick and run bootinst.bat (Windows) or bootinst.sh (Linux) from /boot folder to make it bootable.

Which modules are included?
7 modules by now:
001-core.lzm,002-xorg.lzm,003-desktop.lzm,004-kdeapps.lzm,005-koffice.lzm,007-firefox.lzm and squashfs4-tools

Why 006-devel is not included by default?
2 reasons:
- mediafire.com gives 200MB as maximum on one file
- i presume that not everyone needs development package, if you still want it - check Download section.

Why 008-extra-stuff is not included by default?
I would like to keep 008-extra-stuff outside of slax-remix.iso cause i'll treat it as ServicePack (sounds familiar isn't it?) package. Any urgent fixes will be pushed into this module.

Is there a PAE enabled version of slax-remix?
Yes, if your PC has 4GB of RAM (or more) and you want to use whole amount, you can try PAE version:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/z3k5omid5ay/slax-remix-v04-PAE.iso
md5sum: 07df03cdc370915f8e2e8ca40f522d0a
Be aware that PAE version contains 2 modules only: 001-core and 006-devel. You need to take other modules from standard remix release and create your own version of GPU drivers/Virtualbox etc. Remember: kernel dependent modules, from non PAE slax-remix wont work with this release! Please share your work and post download links in this thread (if any). Please also read this:
http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=56694

How to convert slax modules between sq3 and sq4 formats?
download and activate this module:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/lr20f2njnzt/module_conversion_in_konqueror.sq4.lzm
open konqueror, press right mouse click on sq3 (slax-6.1.2) or sq4 (slax-remix) module and choose proper conversion option.
screenshot:
http://img534.imageshack.us/img534/1662/snapshot1k.jpg
Be aware that slax-6.1.2 doesn't support new sq4 format and slax-remix doesn't support old sq3 format so conversion must be done in case of moving modules between those two releases.

How to remaster sq4.lzm (squashfs4) module?
You need to have squashfs4-tools activated. Copy your sq4.lzm module to /root/squashfs4-tools directory and type in console:
/root/squashfs4-tools/unsquashfs your_module.lzm
The content will be unpacked to /root/squashfs4-tools/squashfs-root directory. After making all necessary changes you need to pack it back so:
/root/squashfs4-tools/mksquashfs squashfs-root/ your_module-1-sq4.lzm
be aware that you must execute mksquashfs from squashfs4-tools folder. Otherwise standard (slax-6.1.2) mksquashfs will operate and create sq3 module, which is not compatible with slax remix release.

How to get my wireless card to work?
If you have a troubles with getting your wifi card to work you might have to download 008-extra-stuff module. It contains a firmware which is needed by some wifi cards, wpa_supplicant needed to create secured wireless connection and sns-tool utility which will let you setup your network settings in an 'easy way'. Launch it from console by typing sns-tool or through KMenu - it's placed under Slax-Extra-Stuff submenu.

Any plans for switching to KDE-4x?
Not for now. Reason is simple: don't want to make slax-remix bigger than 200MB. All KDE-4* fans will have to wait for Slax-7 or add KDE-4 themselves.

Why slax-remix default modules are little bit bigger than in normal slax-6.1.2?
They are packed with smaller block size, wider explanation can be found here:
http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=54463&anchorid=55131#postid55131

How to setup national language support in slax-remix?
WARNING: Settings below are only an example. You need to change all polish values like 'pl_PL.UTF-8' to proper one for your country.
1) to automount ntfs partitions with national characters in file/folder names you have to:
a) replace /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g symlink with a bash script:
#!/bin/bash
/bin/ntfs-3g $1 "$2" -o locale=pl_PL.UTF-8

b) make it executable 'chmod +x script' and save as /slax/rootcopy/sbin/mount.ntfs-3g
2)edit /etc/profile.d/lang.sh file:
a) comment out 'LC_ALL=C' and 'export LANG=en_US' locales
b) replace following string 'export LANG=en_US.UTF-8' with 'export LANG=pl_PL.UTF-8'
this file should look like here: http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=56910
3) download and activate two packages (second one needs conversion to sq4):
a) http://www.mediafire.com/file/dg5jzgzamqf/glibc-i18n-2.11.1-i486.sq4.lzm
b) ftp://ftp.slax.org/SLAX-6.x/multi-language/6.1.2/polish/slax/base/polish.lzm
4) press ctrl+alt+backspace to restart KDE, enjoy national language support!

Proof of concept (russian language):
http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/2313/15703595.png

Be aware that some older apps still lacks of UTF-8 support, if you are not happy with it you can stick with traditional encoding (thanks Blaze89!):
http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=57933

How to report a bug?
Try to recreate the bug first: boot slax-remix in 'always fresh mode' with basic slax-remix modules only. If the error appears again, post relevant bug report in this subject. Please attach links to the screenshots and logfiles (examples: /var/log/messages, /var/log/dmesg, /var/log/Xorg.0.log) if possible. For the log files please use external sites like pastebin.com and post web links only. Make sure that the bug wasn't created by the user error - save my free time! Thanks.

CHANGELOG
Changes comparing to slax-remix-v03:

1) kernel updated to 2.6.32.7-zen6, more info: http://zen-kernel.org/2.6.32-zen6-forever-and-never
2) kernel config changes:
Added:
a) Sipmle I/O scheduler is now the default in remix-v04 as it's designed mainly for flash drives (less i/o means longer stick life!)
b) aufs compiled with 1023 branches (thanks to ahz for reporting)
Removed:
a) WAN and TokenRing drivers (i believe that administrators can compile custom-kernel easily)

3) 001-core, 002-xorg and 006-devel modules are now fully based on Slackware-Current
4) 003-desktop - KMenu is now unlocked so you have all available applications under this button
5) 004-apps flashplugin moved to 002-xorg, following packages were updated: lame, gpart, Mplayer (to latest from SVN), Mplayer isn't compiled with gtk GUI due to extra dependency libs needed, please use frontends instead: smplayer, kmplayer, gnome-mplayer etc.

6) 001-core /sbin/mount.ntfs is now a symlink to /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g, you can type: mount /dev/sdx instead of: mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdx
7) 008-extra added slax2usb script (thanks to jayflood)
8) 002-xorg added special hal rule for Toshiba laptops (thanks to andre5775), 3D acceleration seems to be fixed on all open source drivers

UGLY HACKS
1) 001-core - 'mount' binary used from older util-linux-ng 2.14.1 package to avoid annoying lag during boot time (newer mount binaries tries to mount empty CD/DVD five times! - anyone know how to change it?)

SLAX REMIX KNOWN BUGS:
1) LC_ALL=C is missing from lang.sh file - added fixed version to 008-extra-stuff (bug closed)
2) on some PC's/notebooks mouse can behave strange - add usbmouse driver to the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file (bug closed)

DOWNLOAD SECTION

All packages are now stored in one place:
http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=eb77bf38aaaebe56261060d37fbbafad5df7bb6f6cee21d8f1940a51b339e393

Nvidia drivers for all cards are here (thanks em):
http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=fa6c16e4355209c036df4e8dca141969b3f8d22348c18f04f85d402b9fc3640c

What you can find there?
- 006-devel package with crippled-sources v2.6.32.7
- 008-extra-stuff (include recent version of: wireless-firmware, wpa-supplicant, slax module tools, slax system info tool, slax network setup tool, slax2usb tool)

- Nvidia drivers for all cards
- VirtualBox
- Virtualbox Guest Additions - double click vbox-add-launcher icon on the pulpit to activate vboxmouse feature

WHAT NEXT?

Wil try provide Kernel Mode Setting by default on all GPU cards :)

NTFS partitions with foreign/special
characters may still fail to auto-mount
it seems.

This command is HardWare specific:

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 -o locale=fr_CA.UTF-8

...and user-specific too!...

The '/mnt/sda1' unit is seen as type
"media/hdd_mounted" in 'Konqueror'
(in my case). Is it possible to associate
a right-click gesture for this type of
object under 'Konqueror' so that this
ntfs-3g task can be semi-automated:

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/'variable-1' /mnt/'variable-1' -o locale='variable-2'

...where 'variable-1' & 'variable-2' are
context-dependant...

???

Hey fanthom,

many thanks from my side, that you put so much energy into Slax-remix and keep Slax 6.x up-to-date until Thomas brings out Slax 7 :)

I hope you included the current stable version of ntfs 3g 2010.1.16?

Will start testing next week and of course wait for the new PAE version :)

@beny
i have decided to give up with 64-bit version, reasons:

a) don't know how to compile 64-bit busybox and samba-stripped packages as Tomas didn't left configs for them.
b) skype, rar, acroread, googleearth and few others are still not ported to 64-bits - they will need 32bit libs to run it
c) 64-bit packages are little bit fatter than 32-bit ones (200MB of iso is the border which i don't want to cross)
d) purpose of slax is to be a "live distro", which means "maximum compatibility", 64-bit slax won't work with older PC's.
e) We dont have 64 bit module repository!

if you still want 64-bit kernel, initrd and kernel modules i can send it to your mailbox. I wont publish it here as i dont want to support it officially.

@Moebius and @Bicephale
that's what i have done in 001-core:
/sbin/mount.ntfs is now a symlink to /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g so all ntfs partitions will be mounted by ntfs-3g driver by default (now you can type: mount /dev/sdx instead of: mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdx)
if you need automount you must replace /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g with bash script:
#!/bin/bash
/bin/ntfs-3g $1 "$2" -o locale=fr_CA.UTF-8

pick up correct UTF encoding, give it chmod +x and save as /slax/rootcopy/sbin/mount.ntfs-3g

Please report back if it works.

Regards

EDIT:
Yes Syntux - i have updated ntfs-3g package but sadly it causes a lot of problems now.

I think my locale may be dutch, since the partition was made by a dutch vista. But i'll try the french/canadian.
(Could large dvd iso's be a cause? like 4,4 gigs)

@Moebius
to make a script you need to create text file:
touch mount.ntfs-3g
make it executable:
chmod +x mount.ntfs-3g
and copy this content inside:
#!/bin/bash
/bin/ntfs-3g $1 "$2" -o locale=nl_BE.UTF-8

make sure that it works so:
./mount.ntfs-3g (partition) (destination)
in case of success, put your script in /slax/rootcopy/sbin directory and reboot slax-remix.

@Bicephale
012-glibc-i18n should be enough

Hi Fanthom,

The NTFS patch works for me. Instead of '/rootcopy/' i
use an .LZM module for more flexibility during my tests.

I wish the 'locale' variable could be defined depending
on what the existing variables are set to, though...

I'd favour a simple upload of the modules i used because
more than once i failed to make HowTos work for me. So,
a set of real-life tested samples would seem appropriate,
as far as i'm concerned... I need to verify which modules
are necessary to get the expected result and then i'll be
back with a DownLoad link. Starting from there it should
be possible for people from other nationalities to emulate
that solution and adapt it to fit their own needs. That's
the best i can do, in my opinion.

I get blank screen with the module nvidia-190.53-remix-v04.lzm

The module 011-glibc-2.9-i486-3.lzm is not correct when will you make a new module (error xarps)


For localization I recommend these modules:

a-glibc-2.7-i486-17.sq4.lzm (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?32tdnjzlunn)
b-glibc-i18n-2.7-noarch-17.sq4.lzm (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?ymtjmvcgmzj)

To install modules, put their folders in /slax/base/

Download the module c-config-ru_RU_CP1251-0_0_2-noarch-2.sq4.lzm from here http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?iymgx2hqtl1 unpacked and edit for your localization configure. After copy the module file c-config-ru_RU_CP1251-0_0_2-noarch-2.sq4.lzm to /slax/base/

Edit your slax.cfg (/boot/slax.cfg)

For example slax.cfg (Russian localization ru_RU_CP1251) -> http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?mdvnmymmmin

After replace your old slax.cfg (/boot/slax.cfg)

For example, the mount command (Russian localization ru_RU_CP1251 C (sda1 or hda1) and D (sda5 or hda5) - SATA and IDE):
# Листинг для SATA (вводить в консоли Slax):

umount /dev/sda1
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 -o locale=ru_RU.CP1251
umount /dev/sda5
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda5 /mnt/sda5 -o locale=ru_RU.CP1251


# Листинг для IDE (вводить в консоли Slax):

umount /dev/hda1
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1 -o locale=ru_RU.CP1251
umount /dev/hda5
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hda5 /mnt/hda5 -o locale=ru_RU.CP1251




fanthom, I have some problem with installization s2-liplianin (http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/s2-liplianin/).

@mark
could you boot v03 and make list of modules: lsmod >> mod.v03
then do the same for v04 and compare those files? in case of equal result try using xorg.conf from v03 in v04, please report back with all details possible.

@Blaze89
could you boot remix-v04 in fresh mode with basic modules + nvidia only? works fine for me along with MC.
this is your problem with s2-liplianin:
gcc: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11' not found
looks like wrong library version (remix-v04 is based on slackware-current), is there a newer version of s2-liplianin package available?.
i think that content of glibc-i18n package is the same as glibc - at least in 2.9 version.
will replace qiv with gpicview in remix-v05 - was thinking about it earlier, thanks.

@Moebius
one problem solved so - still many to go :)

@nimh
i'm doing some tests on kernel config which i would like to push in v05 and i have decided to stick with your advice about changing default power governor to cpufreq-ondemand cause it works really great! What about some kind of pushing button "Power Save Mode" which would do just simple job: load and unload acpi-cpufreq kernel module? My C++/qt skills are really poor but maybe someone could write it for us? Otherwise i'll do it through bash script :)

reply
Hi fanthom,
Glad to hear that you decided cpufreq-ondemand as default
governor. I am not sure to understand your idea about the
button, what you mean?
There are not so much common buttons that can be maped
as special purpose buttons. Maybe a key combination?
But the main problem is that different cpus may not use
the same cpufreq modules, in general:

acpi-cpufreq = almost all intel cpu that have a frequency
scaling capability

powernow-k8 = all recent amd k8 and k10 cpu

powernow-k7 = "legacy" amd athlons and such

What we can test is trying blindly to activate all
of them and since only the good one will be active.
(I tested obviously, and you have just a "device not found"
error when not the appropriate driver is used)

I got boot problems with remix-v04. It is booting until the following line appears:

Triggering udev events: /sbin/udevadm trigger

When this line appears nothing is going on. You have to reset the machine. In remix-v03 I can boot without problems and the line above denotes

Triggering udev events: /sbin/udevadm trigger --type=failed

Whats wrong?

P.S.: VMware boots without problems! Obviously the option --type changed from trigger to nothing (and nothing defaults to devices)???

@bour59
need more news like this :)

@mark
pls look at bour59 post above, i thinks that you need to blacklist default usbmouse so hopefully kernel will try rest of modules and pick up the correct one.

@nimh
looks like i have mixed up kde-4 and kde-3 ideas (plasmoids). i wrote a bash script for loading and unloading those modules - will add it to 008-extra-stuff when remix-v05 arrives. thanks for all your suggestions.

@ahz
does this problem also appear on PAE version? look here for possible solutions:
http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=45734&highlight=/sbin/udevadm%20trigger
http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=47295&highlight=/sbin/udevadm%20trigger

try to wait 10 mins and post output of dmesg here (use pastebin.com)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One thing more: i have done some tests with enabling KMS on intel and ati cards and i got mixed results - i'm not happy with it. Could you try to add proper cheatcode to slax.cfg and report back the result?
For intel cards it will be:
i915.modeset=1
for all ati cards:
radeon.modeset=1
example:
title Example Linux
root (0,0)
kernel /example-kernel-2.6.29 root=/dev/root i915.modeset=1


be aware that you need to remove ati-fglrx module for doing this test as fglrx is not compatible with KMS!
please also remove all vga= parameters from lilo and grub configs as kernel will pickup best resolution automatically.

sample movie:

I have uploaded the dmesg output here:

http://pastebin.com/m5d6e1509

The only way I can boot is with cheatcode nohotplug. Booting the standard graphis mode this way the mouse and the keyboard are unusable. To generate the dmesg output I started v04 with nohotplug in textmode.

Cheatcode noudev has no effect. Booting with this or with no cheatcode hangs the machine completly (I turned it of after about 20 minutes :-).

No experiences with PAE version until now. I will try it tomorrow!

@ahz
now it's more clear :)

PAE version has the same kernel config (except support for 4GB mem) so no point for trying it out.
If you have standard PC try to unplug mouse, keyboard and plug it back when slax starts. if you have notebook you must find the driver which is causing problems and blacklist it in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file. I'm guessing it's usbmouse as other people had problems with this driver as well. Please report back.

good luck!

EDIT:

@bour59
could you post here which driver is now controlling your mouse after blacklisting usbmouse?

Neither adding usbmouse to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf nor the hot-fix worked for me. I guess it has something to do with the complete USB detection because here (standard PC's) the USB-keyboard is also unusable. On the laptop from yesterday evening I could use at least the keyboard.

I still wonder why I do not get this line here in v04 (the --type=failed is missing) like I saw it in v03:

Triggering udev events: /sbin/udevadm trigger --type=failed

I took a quick glance inside /etc/rc.d/rc.udev for v03 and v04 but there seems to be no difference in calling udevadm.

thanks for helping me

@ahz
in case of slackware-current userland (new udev package) which may causing problems:

take 001-core form remix-v03 and replace content of /lib/modules with content of /lib/modules from remix-v04. So you will have userland from v03 and kernel from v04. build up new 001-core.lzm and replace with original one from remix-v04. Boot up slax-remix-v04 with remastered 001-core and check if error will be recreated. Hope it will help.

Hello Fanthom. I am having a little time so I thought that I should try your remix. Both the following laptops have intel hardware components.

I have has some problems with my MSI X340, for specs see:
http://www.msimobile.com/level3_productpage.aspx?cid=92&id=105

While booting I get the following error:

Cannot read module data. Corrupted download ...
Fatal error

With my Hp pavilion dv1540ca laptop, I get further. However once in X environment it is not possible to start any program from the kde panel. In addition, if the mouse pad of the laptop is working, the logitech mouse plugged on the usb port moves the cursor only in a vertical fashion. The specs for this laptop are:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00588967&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=1838153

Note: The md5sum of my download is ok. I did burn the iso twice to make sure, but I did not verify the cd md5sum.

hi francois.e,
from my experience this message:

appears when:
a) module is damaged
b) module is in sq3 format
c) number of modules is bigger than number of loops defined in 'max_loop=' cheatcode

mouse issue is a known bug in remix-v04 (at least on some pc's) and i'm working to close it. i have send a download link to you and ahz with kernel recompiled against v03 config. Please check your mailbox.

It seems like remix04 tries to use the 1st hard slax/changes found
if it is 612's one then corrupted data occurs
also with cd boot
I solved this problem by renaming the 612 slax folder to slax612 + modifiing initrd.gz
this manip is indicated in the forum
so i can use 612 or remix04 without any problem these 2 versions are installed on hd
with easybcd to choose between Vista or one of the two slax versions

good point, it also can happen like that.
It's defined in liblinuxlive - it pickups first livecd.sgn which is found. Easy to prevent by using 'from=' cheatcode.

if you want to use French-Canadian initrd.gz you will have to replace all drivers manually and recompress it (initrd) with lzma algorithm. Easy pie - IMO.

Thanks again for devoting your time to these releases, I'm sure I speak for all users in saying that we really appreciate your efforts.

Could you please add support for magic SysRq key in your next kernel config? It's there in the original 6.1.2 but when tried the latest remix the SysRq key combinations aren't working. They're very useful to shut down/reboot the system immediately if it hangs.

ETA: Actually, magic sysrq is a bit of a two-edged sword, while it's useful for me it might not be for other users... If you don't want to enable it I might have to learn how to recompile the kernel myself (thanks for the guide!).

i forgot to thank you for you post in the same subject (doing it now). One question: where did you get this package: c-config-ru_RU_CP1251-0_0_2-noarch-2.sq4.lzm ? Looks like all necessary settings are there, can we get other packages for other languages as well?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
i'm working together with ahz to resolve 'mouse/udevadm/big module number' issue. here's my last mail to him:

thanks a lot for your great job on debugging this problem. Luckily i was able to recreate it on my PC. I have observed the same behaviour in v03 and v04. Tests were done with copy2ram parameter enabled. Here's what i have done:

a) I took 425 smallest packages from slackware-13 and converted them to sq4 format (fastest to do - i didn't try it with bigger module size) and moved to /slax/modules folder
b) without vmalloc= parameter i was able to load 214 modules then i got 'corrupted download' message on the rest, also some kernel modules (sound) were not loaded, message: 'could not allocate memory'. That explains why your mouse/keyboard were not working, probably some other kernel modules were not loaded as well.
c) with vmalloc=192MB i was able to load 324 modules, rest was the same as in case b)
d) with vmalloc=256MB all 425 modules were loaded succesfully and system booted fine, everything was working as expected.
e) with vmalloc=512MB all modules were loaded but after this i got 'Killed' message and system stopped booting.

Strange thing: total size of those 425 modules is: 14MB only !! Why it needs 256 MB of memory to mount them?
Second thing: My total memory amount is 2048MB. With basic slax-remix modules and copy2ram parameter i have 1.1GB free after booting. I persume that when i took 25% off and reserved it for kernel usage (case 'e' - vmalloc=512MB) there was too less free memory to boot the system and i got 'Killed" message.

You said that in your case everything was working fine in slax-612, remix-v03. Could you try to boot v04 with the same boot parameters (especially with the same vmalloc= parameter)?


Anyone with similar problem who would like to share his experience? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Regards,

fanthom

I made this module c-config-ru_RU_CP1251-0_0_2-noarch-2.lzm (http://www.slax.org/modules.php?action=detail&id=3072) for russian speaking.

Download the module c-config-ru_RU_CP1251-0_0_2-noarch-2.sq4.lzm from here http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?iymgx2hqtl1 unpacked and edit source code for your localization configure.

Find and download these packpages for our language:
1. kde-i18n-ourlanguage_x.x.x-x_all.tgz/.txz
2. koffice-i18n-ourlanguage_x.x.x-x_all.tgz/.txz

tgz2lzm or txz2lzm

Unpacked (lzm2dir) these modules into the c-config-ru_RU_CP1251-0_0_2-noarch-2 directories and packed (c-config-ourlanguage_CP1251.lzm).




fanthom, add in slax-remix these modules:

I will try to add your modified 001-core.lzm, vmlinuz and initrd.gz files when the hdd install (some call it frugal slax install) gets functional.

Slax remix-v04/2.6.32-zen6/Slackware-current (original) sometimes does not boot up (Slax Graphics mode (KDE)).

* looking for 'slax' data directory (searching for livecd.sng file)
Fatal error occured - slax data not found.
You are maybe using an unsupported boot device (eg. SCSI or old PCMCIA).
Workaround: Copy the directory slax from your boot divice to an IDE/SATA disk, eg. to /mnt/hda1/slax or C:\slax. Then try to boot again.
* Something went wrong and we can't continue. This should never happen.
* Please reboot your computer with Ctrl+Alt+Delete ...

@Blaze89:
There are least to reasons for this message:
1.) You have hardware that isn't supported by Slax (and then it is mainly some very very special chipset that contols your disk devices - in my case it is a HP DC5750 PC (hope I remember the number right. Even Ubuntu cannot be started on this computer. To do so you need some special trickery. HP claims, that Linux cannot be run on this computers what is completely wrong, as I demonstrated. For Slax I didn't work on a solution because it is not worth it: Standard Slax runs on all other computers without any modification, so there is no need to help HP out of the mess: I tell people not to use these special type of HP machines). This error is always reproducable!
2.) I saw this error in very seldom circumstances with remix-v04 on PC's from which I knew that they didn't cause any trouble with Slax in the past. The reason is not very clear at the moment. It must have something to do with a mechanism that hinders all modules to be loaded correctly (see the post oh fanthom above). This erro is not reproducable at all: Either you see it this time and next time it vanishes and you don't why.

As you are stuck with 2.): It would be interesting to know if Slax 6.1.2 causes trouble too, if remix-v04 _without_ any other modules (just the plain ISO) causes trouble, how many modules you are trying to load, what parameters you use at boot time and how your slax.cfg looks like (esp. if you made any modifications there) and how often you see this message!

hi fanthom it's ok i know lz suffix, the grub entry it's an old slax version showing only for the syntax.in the usb key grub installed are ok,intead hard disk installation i put slax on folder, if you have one partition in ext3 or xfs and have grub how boot all system you can put an entry that point to folder without trouble of hd installation.

Finally, concerning the error message:

hi francois.e,
from my experience this message:
Cannot read module data. Corrupted download ...

appears when:
a) module is damaged
b) module is in sq3 format
c) number of modules is bigger than number of loops defined in 'max_loop=' cheatcode

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

Finally, I manage to get remix ISO to work on the MSI x340 laptop. The problem was that I had a few copies of the standard slax on some of my partitions: one in ntfs (unetbootin slax installed partition) and another on a linux partition. I just renamed them to slaxold and also renamed boot as bootold.

However, as for the hp pavilion 1540ca, the computer freezes after sometimes the first stroke, sometimes the tenth stroke. This wathever the remix stock program I try to use. I did not add yet any other module.

@fanthom,
You are absolutely right. In this release you kept firmware in extra-stuff. Thanks for clarifications.
One thing puzzling me still, I used to pretty well work with wlassistant (with wpa-supplicants) in ver3 and now in ver4 it still shows up my network but "fails to connect". However if I use your sns script I connects without any problems.
So one thing is for sure that drivers are proper. I tried with and without the wpa_supplicant and wpa_passphrase etc from 008-extra-stuff (to ensure it doesn't conflict with my earlier packages), Wlassistan still fails to connect. When I see the log (/var/log/messages) I get something like this
Connection with AP xxxxxxx established
dhcpcd: wlan0 Broadcasting for a lease Requesting lease
dhcpcd: wlan0 offered 192.168.1.3 from 192.168.1.1

Could you suggest, what might have changed in this release that causes Wlassistant unable to connect.

Okay, I got it. I think you changed the dhcpcd version in the ver4 which is not compatible with wlassistant. So for all who want to try goodies of ver 4 but don't want to give up on super utility called wlassistant. Do the following
1. Uncompress 001-core.lzm from ver3 (or even standard 6.1.2) in a folder, say /root/ver3
2. Uncompress 001-core.lzm from ver4 in other folder, say /root/ver4
3. Copy /root/ver3/sbin/dhcpcd to /root/ver4/sbin/dhcpcd
4. Compress /root/ver4 to 001-core.lzm
5. Replace the old 001-core.lzm in slax/base folder with newly made 001-core.lzm

Now wlassistant should work!

that's a good news, must be a new driver so. Unfortunately without the log files i'm not able to guess. Please put changes to another partition and when error occurs give them to me. Obviously - when you'll have a chance.

@abhi
i can revert to older version of dhcpcd to save wlassistant compatibility, but i'm not sure if it's the right direction - we should move forward. KDE-3.5.10 is dead (well, i have heard that there are some plans to release another bugfix version but it's only a rumor), some other programs, strictly connected with this environment are also dead - Wlanassistant is not developed since 2007 ! Maybe you (we) should try to find a good replacement for it?

next time when this error appears try to take those 2 steps from my HOWTO:

Section IV Debugging

When something goes wrong and you finish with:
"looking for Slax data Directory"
you will have an access to the debug shell so take those actions:
1) run lsmod and make sure you have fuse, aufs and squashfs are loaded
2) mount your usb key manually:
mkdir /mnt/usb
mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb

Sorry to ask, but why are you getting fedora kernels (that might/might not work?) This is unbelievable! I thought you guys used a build script that would crank out the kernel and build it from source. I would kindly ask you on how to build a new kernel(zen or not zen) to build a Slackware current livecd from a full installation and (NOT GET A FEDORA KERNEL from RAWHIDE) like u are doing :(

this should never happen:
modprobe: FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.32-zen6/modules.dep: No such file or directory
all paths to the kernel drivers are kept in this file. My guess is that you have at least 2 slax installations on your pendrive/harddisk.
Please remember that slax is searching for livecd.sgn file and will use first one which is found, no matter if it's correct one.
My advice:
a) move all other slax installations to temporary directory, lets say: /mnt/sda3/slax-Installations/slax-6.1.2,
b) boot slax-remix-v04 once again and make sure that /lib/modules/2.6.32-zen6/modules.dep file exist - kernel version (2.6.32-zen6) is very important.
c) type lsmod and check if all modules are loaded - should be at least 20.
d) run xconf and then startx
e) if you get a blank screen once again, try to replace /etc/X11/xorg.conf file with /etc/X11/xorg.conf-vesa or with similar, must have 'vesa' in name anyway (sorry - can't say exac name cause i'm at work now) and then try startx - don't run xconf now.
f) in case of fail please post same log files here once again.

Before you do a bug report, please read and do what's here:
How to report a bug?
Try to recreate the bug first: boot slax-remix in 'always fresh mode' with basic slax-remix modules only. If the error appears again, post relevant bug report in this subject. Please attach links to the screenshots and logfiles (examples: /var/log/messages, /var/log/dmesg, /var/log/Xorg.0.log) if possible. For the log files please use external sites like pastebin.com and post web links only. Thanks.

Blaze89
i can bet for a bottle of whiskey, that when you run slax-remix in 'always fresh mode', with basic modules only - MidnightCommander will work - like a charm :D No dubt in it.
There must be something wrong with your configuration/installtion. Try to find conflicting module, please also report it as it may be useful for others.

I have made a costume slax that work great on my pc, but when i tries it on other machines i cant access wlan.
maybe i need to modify this.. (wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0), so that it accept other wlan then 0. my other mashines uses wlan1 and so on..

(i used the sns tool to create and add the wlan config to the system.)

@Blaze89
look here:
ntfs-3g[4891]: Cmdline options: rw,locale=ru_RU.CP1251

seems that some language settings were still turned on: rootcopy? modified slax.cfg file? Please revert back all changes and try once again with real fresh slax-remix.
Please give me more time, i'll post small howto for building dvb module asap

@kalla
exactly,
i would recommend to use sns-tool on every machine separately as some settings may vary: wlan device name, essid name, wep/wpa key etc.

i have got mc to work with UTF-8 support, will post small HOWTO when ready.

This is what you need to build dvb-007 package on slax-remix-v04:
activate /mnt/sdb1/slax/optional/006-devel-remix-v04.lzm
wget http://distfiles.gentoo.org/distfiles/linux-2.6.32.tar.bz2
tar -xvjf linux-2.6.32.tar.bz2 -C /root/
cd /root/linux-2.6.32
wget http://downloads.zen-kernel.org/2.6.32/2.6.32-zen6.patch.lzma
lzma -d 2.6.32-zen6.patch.lzma
patch -p1 < 2.6.32-zen6.patch
cp /usr/src/linux/.config .
make oldconfig
rm /usr/src/linux
ln -s /root/linux-2.6.32 /usr/src/linux

it should work on every slax-remix release, just change kernel version, zen patch version and 006-devel version. when building of dvb-007 fails, you might have to compile kernel source so type 'make' in kernel directory and then try again to build dvb-007.

Good luck!

@abhi
please try to blacklist usbmouse driver and report back if it works, i need to collect as much information about problems with kernel config as i can, before releasing remix-v05.

it's a known issue:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Slax-FAQ updated, UTF-8 issue seems to be sorted out now:

How to setup national language support in slax-remix?
WARNING: Settings below are only an example. You need to change all polish values like 'pl_PL.UTF-8' to proper one for your country.
1) to automount ntfs partitions with national characters in file/folder names you have to:
a) replace /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g symlink with a bash script:
#!/bin/bash
/bin/ntfs-3g $1 "$2" -o locale=pl_PL.UTF-8
b) make it executable 'chmod +x script' and save as /slax/rootcopy/sbin/mount.ntfs-3g
2) edit /etc/profile.d/lang.sh file and replace following string 'export LANG=en_US.UTF-8'
with 'export LANG=pl_PL.UTF-8', it should look like here:http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=56910
3) download and activate two packages (second one needs conversion to sq4):
a) http://www.mediafire.com/file/dg5jzgzamqf/glibc-i18n-2.11.1-i486.sq4.lzm
b) ftp://ftp.slax.org/SLAX-6.x/multi-language/6.1.2/polish/slax/base/polish.lzm
4) press ctrl+alt+backspace to restart KDE, enjoy national language support!

Proof of concept:

UPDATE:
seems that glibc-i18n is enough to handle UTF encoding (smaller than full glibc package). FAQ updated to reflect that.
Also i had some problems with changes which Tomas made in lang.sh file (currently placed in 008-extra-stuff). I would recommended to remove them, so this file should look like that:
#!/bin/sh
# Set the system locale. (no, we don't have a menu for this ;-)
# For a list of locales which are supported by this machine, type:
# locale -a
#export LC_ALL=C

# en_US is the Slackware default locale:
#export LANG=en_US

# 'C' is the old Slackware (and UNIX) default, which is 127-bit
# ASCII with a charmap setting of ANSI_X3.4-1968. These days,
# it's better to use en_US or another modern $LANG setting to
# support extended character sets.
#export LANG=C

# There is also support for UTF-8 locales, but be aware that
# some programs are not yet able to handle UTF-8 and will fail to
# run properly. In those cases, you can set LANG=C before
# starting them. Still, I'd avoid UTF unless you actually need it.
export LANG=pl_PL.UTF-8

# Another option for en_US:
#export LANG=en_US.ISO8859-1

# One side effect of the newer locales is that the sort order
# is no longer according to ASCII values, so the sort order will
# change in many places. Since this isn't usually expected and
# can break scripts, we'll stick with traditional ASCII sorting.
# If you'd prefer the sort algorithm that goes with your $LANG
# setting, comment this out.
export LC_COLLATE=C

# End of /etc/profile.d/lang.sh

you need to edit UTF encoding and save this file as /slax/rootcopy/etc/profile.d/lang.sh so it'll override all previous settings. Works for me :)

I prefer cp1251 encoding. UTF-8 not for me. MidnightCommander work with my cp1251 Russian localization in slax-remix-v04 after some time interval.

I try to build dvb-007 package on slax-remix-v04 (My HOWTO):
Copy 006-devel-remix-v04.lzm and wget-1.12.qt4.lzm to /slax/base/
Then open a konsole and type:

@Blaze89
Why UTF is not for you, could you explain a little bit? I can't replace ntfs-3g with Ntfsprogs cause they are completely different packages, with different functions.

dvb-007 - look what i wrote above:
when building of dvb-007 fails, you might have to compile kernel source so type 'make' in kernel directory and then try again to build dvb-007
so it should look like that:
Copy 006-devel-remix-v04.lzm and wget-1.12.qt4.lzm to /slax/base/
Then open a konsole and type:
wget http://distfiles.gentoo.org/distfiles/linux-2.6.32.tar.bz2

patch -p1 < 2.6.32-zen6.patch
cp /usr/src/linux/.config .
make oldconfig
make
rm /usr/src/linux
ln -s /root/linux-2.6.32 /usr/src/linux
cd /usr/src/s2-liplianin
make
make install

do not change anything and you will be fine.
sq4 has little bit better compression than sq3, try:
/root/squashfs4-tools/mksquashfs (source dir) package.sq4.lzm -b 256K
and you will see. Explanation is in the FAQ since ages, read here:
Why slax-remix default modules are little bit bigger than in normal slax-6.1.2?
They are packed with smaller block size, wider explanation can be found here:

@Blaze89
never give up! unpack kernel sources to the hard drive and do the compilation there (not in the RAM). You will need around 850MB of free space on hd.

when you run dir2lzm command, then Tomas script raises sq3 block size to 256K (from default 128k). To compare sq3 and sq4 you need to raise sq4 block size too. Do as follows:
/root/squashfs4-tools/mksquashfs freedroidrpg/ freedroidrpg_0.11-1.sq4.lzm -b 256K
and then compare the result.

hi bicephale:

3.3 What does "error: security module support must be enabled in your kernel" mean?

Dazuko uses the new Linux Security Model for Linux 2.6. This means that Security must be enabled in the kernel in order to support Dazuko. This will require you to configure and build a new kernel. bring a configure and read carefully ,you have enable security module on kernel, i suppose

Thanks Blaze89 for the link, i was wondering where 'ClamAV' came from...

Well, i have another question about 'ClamAV'/'KlamAV' for 'Slax-Remix':
using the contents of '/mnt/live/memory/changes/' i believe i was able
to collect the necessary files to create a working combined module but
i find it hard to tell which file belongs to which application and this may
be of importance when it comes to programs not related to 'ClamAV'.

I'm wondering if there wouldn't happen to be some way to ease my task,
under the form of a utility which records the whole directory structure
(except '/mnt/'!...) before and after an installer like the 'KlamAV' self-
extractible installer is executed, so that only the new files are copied...

easiest way: install your application and pick up all files from changes with latest creation time. On the other hand you can try to install everything to temp directory

i have reconfigured v4 kernel and ./configuration script finished succesfully, unfortunatelly building process failed during 'make' stage. I have done some research and looks like you don't need to compile dazuko at all. Newer version of dazuko is called dazukofs:
http://dazuko.dnsalias.org/wiki/index.php/Downloads
and it's in slax remix already, just do modprobe dazukofs.
Other thing: could you explain to me how to use it? I suppose that ClamAV/KlamAV takes advantage of it, but how to force it to work with newer dazukofs? Is it possible at all?

Cheers

EDIT
ok - forget what i wrote above. I used newer version of dazuko-2.3.8, complied it from sources with redirfs support and everything went fine. Will post small HOWTO (if necessary) when remix-v05 is released.

please remove all of your modules and settings (no changes cheatcode), boot 'plain' slax-remix and then do exactly everything what i wrote here:

How to setup national language support in slax-remix?
WARNING: Settings below are only an example. You need to change all polish values like 'pl_PL.UTF-8' to proper one for your country.
1) to automount ntfs partitions with national characters in file/folder names you have to:
a) replace /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g symlink with a bash script:
#!/bin/bash
/bin/ntfs-3g $1 "$2" -o locale=pl_PL.UTF-8
b) make it executable 'chmod +x script' and save as /slax/rootcopy/sbin/mount.ntfs-3g
2) edit /etc/profile.d/lang.sh file and replace following string 'export LANG=en_US.UTF-8'
with 'export LANG=pl_PL.UTF-8', it should look like here:http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=56910
3) download and activate two packages (second one needs conversion to sq4):
a) http://www.mediafire.com/file/dg5jzgzamqf/glibc-i18n-2.11.1-i486.sq4.lzm
b) ftp://ftp.slax.org/SLAX-6.x/multi-language/6.1.2/polish/slax/base/polish.lzm
4) press ctrl+alt+backspace to restart KDE, enjoy national language support!


you can also try to force UTF-8 encoding in Konsole
-> Settings -> Encoding -> Unicode (utf8)

Good luck!

Slax 6.1.2 by Tomas M - http://i49.tinypic.com/n2h649.jpg

fanthom add in slax remix two modules:
Beep media player 0.9.7.1 (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?mhuhuk5jzvz) (http://www.slax.org/modules.php?action=detail&id=3067). Screenshot: http://www.slax.org/modules/screenshots/3/3067_big.png
The Beep Media Player (BMP) was a free audio player, based on the XMMS multimedia player. The lead developer was Milosz “deadchip” Derezynski. The BMP is mainly a port of XMMS to GTK+ 2 and, as such, integrates better with the look and feel of more recent versions of GNOME, Xfce, and, if using the GTK-QT theme engine for KDE, KDE desktop environments. Like XMMS, BMP looks like Winamp and even supports Winamp and XMMS skins.

KMPlayer 0.10.0c (http://www.slax.org/modules.php?action=detail&id=82) and delete Mplayer.

Finally it doesn't work to take note of the date/time stamps in my

that can take before/after snapshots of the directory structure to
extract the files directly related to my installation of 'KlamAV' only.

This could provide a clue to my own question:

Well, i'm also trying to figure out how 'KDiff3-0.9.92' combined to

could be of use here...

...

and added in this module (russian-sq4.lzm -> http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?z5tjy5tezlh):

/sbin/mount.ntfs-3g

Nice and that was quick! I'm wondering, would it be

is backward-compatible, can 'Slax v6.1.2' be made
forward-compatible?

@Bicephale
you mean sq4 to sq3 conversion under slax-6.1.2? No problem - can do it. Will add proper konqueror entry to my existing squashfs4-tools package - they will need it anyway.

that kind of 'chat box' could be very useful on this page - IMO

Yes, SQ3 <-> SQ4 conversion would save time to those who try

could be considered to be an advantage for some of us...

I have one suggestion, it's about the boot-time splash screen.

The bottom space is such that typing any additional boot-codes
is rendered very difficult because of its reduced visibility... When
testing optional modules this can be an irritating issue (which i
corrected by changing the graphic file with something darker).

-=*=-

Thanks for the latest SQ3-SQ4 conversion module, i evaluated
it both under 'Slax v6.1.2' and 'Slax-Remix v04' with success:
i verified that cross-compatibility is now possible by creating an
SQ3 module for 'Slax v6.1.2' under 'Slax-Remix v04' and an
SQ4 one for 'Slax-Remix v04' under 'Slax v6.1.2'... Of course,
the 'Slax v6.1.2' users 1st must convert that module under

do you mean 'ksplash' which starts after X11? or boot-splash - those one between kernel and X11? what i suppose to do with it?
a have reuploaded squashfs4-tools for 6.1.2 users with konqueror integration as well:

hello !
@fanthom
In this forum you said For a list of locales which are supported by this machine, type:
# locale -a
slax612 says C- Posix
remix04 says command not found
I'm happy without any locale !
But what is the use of locale except for ntfs.. as fully developped here
maybe I'have not seen the explanation in this thread or others's slax which said locale -a
I'm using loadkeys fr-latin1 without any cheatcode for utf8
my knowledge of linux is not had-hoc sure hi!
thanks to you always responding and giving explains

@Bicephale
yes, good idea (since v04 slax-remix doesn't relay on slax-6.1.2 anymore - it's rather mix of Slax, Slackware-current and LLS)
any propositions for replacing Syslinux boot image?

@bour59
'locale' app belongs to 006-devel package, activate it (along with 008-extra-stuff - check "slax-remix know bugs" number 1) and you will have same result :)

Switching to UTF-8 is best what you can do - check FAQ section.

I'm sure you can find a nice subject which will suit
'Slax-Remix' better. I'm curious to see what it's
going to be!

:)

Well, i hope you won't have too much trouble trying
to deal with '/Boot/Help.MSG': i put it there just in
case 'Slax'/'Slax-Remix'/'PureOS-Light' refuses to
start in GUI (X) mode (if that occurs there are text-
mode applications such as 'MidNight Commander',
'Lynx', 'C-Kermit' and the like)...

Oups! Ah, and the "load=010,013, ... ,090" part is
because of the modules i'm testing: language patch,
'FireFox' language/bookmark patches, anti-virus, etc.

I like the water-like texture of those letters,
that's certainly a great idea! Superposition
is easily achieved but i wouldn't know how
to get a similar label to begin with... Also, i
think the resolution i too high to keep some
nice features like that tree, you'd have to go
down a bit. By the way, wouldn't you want
the label to say "Slax-Remix" instead?

Hummm...

I don't know about the label but you can sure have the logo:

http://www.txemijendrix.com/galerias/fondos/wp/slax01wp.jpg

It's just a matter of shifting green to blue then superpose.

It's from here:

http://www.txemijendrix.com/galerias/fondos/07_en.html

There's the 'SlackWare' logo already in blue over there:

http://wardonx.orconhosting.net.nz/pix/slakpaper.png

...and searching hard there also are a few stylish 'Slax'
labels around:

http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/252/12097561.jpg

Unfortunately, it appears you'll find that anything
else but an empty sky will generate lots of shades:

Hi Fanthom,

I use 'Xn-View' to limit the number of colours to 256
and then i copy/paste to 'MS-Paint' and save as a .JPG

working for me so i didn't try to understand this issue
any further... I can see you've found pictures with a
lot of details which still allow high-contrast reading,
that's good! Just don't forget the CLI line as that's a
critical one.

Hi Blaze89,

I tried to add AdBlock and it wasn't compatible,

I'm taking note of the recent URL for chatting,
it's more than sufficient in the event that two
or more users would happen to "rendez-vous".

The 007 'FireFox' module in 'Slax v6.1.2' needs
to be replaced and my add-on modules didn't work
with it anyway so i used that of Fanthom which i
simply converted thanks to the new tools...

i have started merging apps from slackware-current (dated on 2nd of march) to slax-remix-v05. Obviously there are some troubles - udev-151 is simply pain in the ass. i'll probably stay with 141 version.
Xorg-server was bumped to 1.7.5 - unfortunately ati fglrx driver supports 1.6x branch only . Will have to stay with 1.6 for now.

I might have to stick with userland from remix-v04. Will see.

@beny
had the same issue with remix-v05, i have recompiled the kernel and disabled nouveau.

in your case try to comment out nouveau in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.dep or delete this driver completely from /lib/modules.

Cheers

don't worry about zen kernel - i have build it without nouveau driver and it's working perfectly with nvidia GPU's. constant 'joke mode on' is with fglrx driver.
wish to go with open-source xf86-video-ati, but it still lacks of some features:

http://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonProgram

wait for amd/ati and remix-v05 will be pushed out.

remix-v04 problems:

- Firefox 3.6 slows extremly down once network connection is established (menu delays of about 2s).
- Wine 1.1.33 (other versions too) has a huge startup delay once network connection is established (winecfg, notepad needs about 30s).
Both working well when freshly booted without any network connection, having dhcpd disabled in "/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1"
- Screen refresh stops on intel GMA950 when the mouse is not moved constantly, even when watching video
(is there any linux distibution that works with the intel GMA950, without having randomly system crashes ?)
- depmod (modules-ini-tools-3.6) http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=56578
renders "modules.dep" unusable - Is it a bug or a new feature ?

the less annoying ones:
- wifi drivers for eeepc are missing
- some firmware for common usb-wifi missing
- some modules for common nic missing
- touchpad click emulation does not work (known issue)

All the above works pretty well with the official slax 6.1.2 release.
Any ideas ?

Thanks, but no. Used a regular mouse on another machine. Mostly eveything is working fine except modules. See below:

An error occured


root@slax:~# activate gkrellm-2.3.2-i486-1.lzm
module file is stored inside the union, moving to /mnt/live/memory/modules first...

I check there the module appears to be there, but :

I did the same thing I did with the old modules in Slax 6.1.2, built from source but I get the error message :(

Some error occured while activating the module.

Other than that, I can't complain. I'll test new remix when I have a chance. Thanks again for your hard work :)

Will try 2.6.33-zen kernel from your releases when it is ready. Thanks :)

@Bill Gayds
thanks for this detailed report:
a) Fx and Wine: works for me - tested on 4 different machines, don't know how to fix it
b) intel GMA950 - try to compile latest driver from sources: xf86-video-intel-2.10
c) depmod - sorted out already by the sed command
d) all firmware is in 008-extra-stuff, could you write which wifi drivers are missing? i'll be happy to add them in to v05.
e) touchpad - fixed already in v05

@unixino
check Download section for GPU drivers

@Gam-Phon
/media issue is sorted out in v05

@tonio
a) modules needs conversion to sq4 - check remix-FAQ
b) kernel issue - read FAQ: howto report a bug
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Any ideas how can i force users to read FAQ before they start their adventure with slax-remix?

@tonio
a) modules needs conversion to sq4 - check remix-FAQ
b) kernel issue - read FAQ: howto report a bug


On part a) I disagree with you
1) I am building from source directly (not using previous modules(because they don't work) :)
2) I tried using slaxbuild script I created and the resultant modues don't work as simple as that :(
3) The only packages that work are tgz/txz files built from Slackbuilds.org

On part b) I run into many kernel oops in Fedora and they get automagically reported :), here I have to load program kernel oops package or something like that, but apparently there was a problem with pppp, kernel module(s), i have encountered those before and also have dealt with them.

On another thing I want to report :

the mkfileswap command does not work, some files/commands that are on default Slax are not in remix :(,
And BTW, I did read the documentation, that is why I try building from source/slaxbuild to run on slax remix. I solved the mouse problem. I am trying. I still like your remix and can try any suggestions that you have :)

@fathon

I apologize, I did not read this

be aware that you must execute mksquashfs from squashfs4-tools folder. Otherwise standard (slax-6.1.2) mksquashfs will operate and create sq3 module, which is not compatible with slax remix release.

I believed that running mksquashfs from within slax remix would produce a sq4 for it but apparently it produces an sq3 module, why did you not make it by default? This way I avoid the confusion :) How bout adding patches that Quax has that make it backwards compatible?

@tonio
in v05 all confusion with building sq3 and sq4 modules is gone, right mouse click will do everything. sq4-tools are not default cause i want remix users to contribute (create sq3 modules) for slax-6.1.2 as well. i didn't go with sq3 in recent kernels cause sq4 will be used in slax-7 anyway. We need to be ready (all our modules converted) when it arrives :)

BTW your kernel bug can be caused by drivers from 'staging area' i have enabled some of them on users request. still - better is to have 'buggy diver' than 'no driver' - IMO.
try to recreate it and in case of success i'll report it upstream.

'Slax-Remix' was a very positive experience for me, without it and the
recent user-friendly SQ3/4 solution i probably wouldn't have revisited
'Slax v6.1.2' at all. Of course, the fact that 'KDE v3.5.10' is used also
had a determining effect of its own...

Hi fanthom,

I have done! The cp1251 charset in Slax remix v04 works for me ;)
Look at this screenshot: http://i49.tinypic.com/10zn703.png

1. I unpacked the module 008-extra-stuff.lzm and removed a directory /etc/profile.d/.
2. Added in the module c-config-ru_RU_CP1251-0_0_2-noarch-2-sq4.lzm a bash script /sbin/mount.ntfs-3g
#!/bin/bash
/bin/ntfs-3g $1 $2 -o locale=ru_RU.CP1251

cd /sbin/
chmod +x mount.ntfs-3g

3. Unpacked these modules: russian.lzm and glibc-i18n-2.11.1-i486.sq4.lzm
4. Copied the directory /usr/share/locale/ of module russian.lzm and pasted into a local directory of module glibc-i18n-2.11.1-i486.sq4.lzm
and edited the file slax.cfg for ru_RU_cp1251 localization (http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?mdvnmymmmin)

I have one question. How to add this fonts http://unix1.jinr.ru/~lavr/X11/win-micex.tgz in Slax remix?

@Blaze89
wow - great work! i'll add your post to remix FAQ immediately, so people who don't like UTF-8 will be able to use traditional encoding - thanks :)
fonts - put them in /usr/share/fonts directory.

* Firmware
i am missing "Ralink rt73" (netbook) and "Zydas zd1211" (both USB Wifi) - the driver modules are still there.

* GMA950:
i got really horrible "I830WaitLpRing()" errors ramdomly crashing the system on different machines with intel 82945,
much less frequent with remix-v04 ;-) but still buggy - this is not a slax specific issue, same thing happens with all
other distros that i have tried so far, with the one and only exception of CDlinux - but i cannot figure out why...
what do i need for compiling "xf86-video-intel-2.10" ?
- devel module
- xf86-video-intel-2.10 source
- something more ?

* depmod 3.6
i think post processing "modules.dep" using sed is not really a solution, since it doesnt
correct "modules.dep.bin" nor the strange behavior of depmod

thanks a lot

a) you must have missed slax-remix FAQ, did you?
How to get my wireless card to work?
If you have a troubles with getting your wifi card to work you might have to download 008-extra-stuff module. It contains a firmware which is needed by some wifi cards, wpa_supplicant needed to create secured wireless connection and sns-tool utility which will let you setup your network settings in an 'easy way'. Launch it from console by typing sns-tool or through KMenu - it's placed under Slax-Extra-Stuff submenu.


b) that's all what you need, don't forget to enable Kernel Mode Setting (set i915.modeset=1 in slax.cfg) cause intel drivers, since version 2.10 can't work without it.

c) 'sed' is soultion until it works, you have 3 options:
- rebuild busybox (good luck with it)
- replace busybox symlinks with apps from module-init-tools-3.11.1 (will bloat initrd)
- use 'sed' command (simplest - IMO)

Regards,
fanthom

a) ok - shame on me, i didnt

b) i will try that and report the result

c) maybe a 4th option:
replacing the busybox-modprobe symlink in "intrd.lz" with the full version of modprobe 3.6

thanks a lot

tried it and doesn't work, looks like it needs other binaries. i'm happy with 'sed' workaround anyway.
Cheers

EDIT:
please hold on for a while with compilation of intel driver - i have finally got fglrx to work with 2.6.33 kernel (needs two extra patches). I'm currently uploading remix-v05 to mediafire. should be in the air in couple hours.

@fanthom
I swapped my mobo from atom330+82945GC to atom510+nm10
and added i915.modeset=1, that works great with remix-v04 ;-)

Solved my strange Firefox "menu-delay" and "wine-startup-delay" issues, it was a too restrictive firewall setting.
you can simply check that behavior by typing:
root@slax:~# ifconfig lo down
