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.

WARNING: READ THE FAQ BEFORE ASKING!
http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=60836


CHANGELOG
Changes comparing to slax-remix-v06:
1) New kernel - 2.6.34 more info: http://www.h-online.com/open/features/What-s-new-in-Linux-2-6-34-1000122.html
2) kernel config:
- enabled 'CONFIG_PRINTK_TIME=y' mainly for bootchart purpose
- enabled 'Control Group Support'
- 'floppy' support is compiled as (M)
- removed msdos fs support (vfat does the job)
- removed plenty of experimental network protocols (not needed on desktop system)
- fuse and squashfs are compiled in (*)
3) Boot folder
- upgraded busybox and ntfs-3g driver in initrd.lz to latest version ('sed workaround' is not needed anymore)
- usr.lzm and drivers.lzm are unpacked by default
- tweaked linuxrc to speed up boot process. Also - when copy2ram cheatcode is active, source media (cd disc, pendrive, hd etc) are still available through /mnt/live/mnt directory
- replaced 'initrd.gz' with 'initrd.lz' in liloinst.sh file (thanks Syntux)
- new syslinux boot image (well done Blaze89)
- fixed permissions inside /slax folder (thanks Rava)
4) 001-core
- all packages updated to Slackware-13.1
- updated and tweaked almost all rc scripts (wicd, lxde autostart, faster boot, etc.)
- updated squashfs4 tools to latest version from cvs (xattr support)
- added 'mkfileswap' and 'mkslaxsave' scripts by Tomas M (thanks to tonio)
- added missing 'vi' symlink (also tonio)
- fixed jayflood's modtools (broken by me in v06)
- updated Remix-FAQ
- updated bonaparts' Slax Module Center
- latest version of 'mount' binary is back (no more ugly hacks!) but automount of CD/DVD discs is gone. Slax CD will be still availiable
through /mnt/live/mnt directory, other CD's needs to be mounted manually, example: 'mount /mnt/sr2' will mount disc in third CD/DVD drive.
- wpa_supplicant from sns-tool is replaced with standard slackware package for wifi 'N' support (thanks to nimh)
5) 002-desktop
- all packages updated to Slackware-13.1
- fluxbox replaced by lxde desktop (thanks ponce for your great job!). you dont need to remove 003-kde to use it. just edit slax.cfg as follows: 'autoexec=lxde;xconf;telinit~4'
in this case you'll be able to use KDE applications and still have lxde as default deskop :)
- new cursor and gtk theme by Blaze89
- added 'numlock on' to lxde and KDE autostart (eddi suggestion)
6) 003-kde
- module renamed from 003-desktop to 003-kde (to avoid confusion as we have lxde desktop in 002-xorg already)
- added 'convert tgz_txz to sq4...' konqueror servicemenu
- moved sq3 operations in konqueror to 'Other actions' subfolder (ceremcem_ suggestion)
- added 'LXDE' submenu for lxde stuff
- replaced KDE startup sound, Kmenu and shutdownkonq images (good job Blaze89!)
7) 006-devel
- all packages updated to Slackware-13.1
- added missing qt3 headers and 'moc' binary
- due to newest libpng-1.4.x package you need to link qt-based aplications against older libpng-1.2x during compilation:
rm /usr/lib/libpng.la
ln -s /usr/lib/libpng12.la /usr/lib/libpng.la

(thanks bonapart for this tip)
- debugging symbols are not stripped from libs in this module. It's little bit bigger size but applications like 'gdm' should work correctly now (thanks Blaze89)
8) 007-firefox
- upgraded flashplugin to latest beta (gusterrapolis suggestion)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
SLAX REMIX KNOWN BUGS:
- 'shutdown' or 'reboot' procedure doesn't work for pendrive with persistent changes enabled (although it works ok for hd). Looks like pendrive is unmounted before shutdown procedure is completed. Solution: error does not recreate when you use slaxsave.dat container. fixed in Service-Pack-1 (bug closed)
- ati-fglrx initially uploaded by me didn't work on hd4xxx series. new module reached 'download section' - thanks to ebhomepc - which fixes this issue. Added script for creating fglrx modules to Remix FAQ (bug closed).
- national-language-support doesn't work under lxde. Solution: edit /usr/bin/xdm as follows. Fixed in Service-Pack-1 (bug closed):
#!/bin/bash
while [ 1 ]; do
su --login -c ". /etc/profile.d/lang.sh && /usr/bin/startx -- vt7 > /dev/null 2>&1"
done


help with resolving issues is greatly appreciated

Thanks fanthom and all collaborators.Is working like a charm.

Advice for slax users...

To print in slax-6.1.2 and in slax-remix-v07 you need mandatory...

http://www.slax.org/modules.php?action=detail&id=26

http://www.slax.org/modules.php?action=detail&id=1372

Optional but recommended...

http://www.slax.org/modules.php?action=detail&id=234

Remix-v07 users must convert .sq3 modules to .sq4 before use.

@Bicephale
right - changed to 'is out!' :)

@Blaze89
added to Download section - thanks.

@dark2x3d
sorry but i can't prepare them on my machine as it needs nvidia GPU.

@ebhomepc
1) wpa_gui needs qt4 - add this lib and should work then.
2) i don't know how to force those Kde shortcuts to work under lxde. maybe in next release?

@bonapart
good idea with autorun - to be done in v08 i guess :)
-----------------------------------------------------
thanks to everyone who thanked me :) please remember that it's not only my job but rather all people mentioned (and not mentioned) in the changelog.

We did great job

I have discovered first bug:
'shutdown' or 'reboot' procedure doesn't work for pendrive with persistent changes (although it works ok for hd). looks like pendrive is unmounted before shutdown procedure is completed. i didn't notice any data loss but it's still a bug. error is not recreated when you use slaxsave.dat container (that's recommended way for storing changes). added to 'known bugs section'.

@bonapart
1) i have just realized that we cant go with autorun in 006-devel as every app will be compiled against libpng-1.2x branch (and we want it for qt-3x only). will try to keep this workaround in 'Ugly hacks' section for next releases as a warning.
2) thanks for toorent mirror - i have added it to 'Download section'

@Ponce
1) also thanks for mirroring - hopefully it wont be too much stressfull for your server :)
2) no problem, i believe that we can do more about lxde desktop before next release date.

@crashman
external 'glibc-i18n-2.11.1' shouldn't be required as the first thing which LST does is downloading this package and you can't refuse it actually. thanks for helping pete - i like when users are hepling each other without my ingerence.

@em
as always - thanks for nvidia packages.

@andre5775
good that it's sorted for you.
----------------------------------------------------
i need to admit that i'm little bit suprised - nearly 2 days after release v07 and no big issues so far.
well done guys (and hopefully some girls?) !

Cheers

For Ubuntu newbies who want to install slax and or slax-remix on an USB stick..

Ubuntu (9.10) mounts an USB-stick by default with the name "USB DISK".

Running bootinst.sh results in the error message:Can't find device to install to.
Make sure you run this script from a mounted device.


Apparently the space between "USB" and "DISK" is what causes the error.

A workaround for this:

  • open a terminal window

  • find out which device is your USB DISK cat /etc/mtab | grep USB" might get you something like: "/dev/sdb1 /media/USB\040DISK vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit,uid=1000,gid=1000,shortname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1,flush 0 0" where "/dev/sdb1" is the device name.

  • unmount the USB DISK (via GUI > right mouse button "unmount" or via CLI > umount /dev/sdb1 where "/dev/sdb1" needs to be replaced with the device name of your USB DISK

  • log in as root su -

  • make a directory in /media mkdir /media/altUSB

  • mount your USB DISK again mount /dev/sdb1 /media/altUSB where "/dev/sdb1" needs to replaced with de device name of your USB DISK

  • cd /media/altUSB/boot (you must cd to the USB DISK in order to let bootinst.sh detect the MBR of your USB DISK, to avoid the MBR of your Hard Disk gets overwritten..)

  • run the bootinst.sh script./bootinst.sh

  • after that you can unmount the USB DISK again umount /dev/sdb1

  • It's up to you if you remove the altUSB directory too.. rmdir /media/altUSB

    Playing with v07 here ... have a couple quick questions

    -- do the dir2lzm and lzm2dir scripts work properly with Remix?

    -- if not, is there some way to consolidate multiple lzms captured from /changes?

    I still have a weird situation with using previously saved configuration lzms (from /changes on previous v06) -- and if I just leave them in /slax/modules then when KDE starts I have no mouse or keyboard. But if I remove them from modules and activate them after a text login, THEN startx, they work fine. I have no clue why this should not be the same thing, but I have spent some hours here proving to myself I could not solve the problem, so just left them out of /modules and activate from an autoexec= script before starting KDE.

    reply
    Side question: --- I got the nvidia module (195.something) for v07, and notice that inside it is an xorg.conf file, clearly not like the default that comes with slax, nor is it anything like the one that is made by nvidia-settings. Is this a standard thing to do, to include that file? How does this play with xconf?

    Maybe I should be asking about what xconf is doing -- I imagined it was surveying the system hardware and constructing a new xorg.conf -- in which case it should have set the correct devices for mouse and keyboard, regardless of what the previously existing xorg.conf contained, after all modules are loaded. But it does not, here.

    1) yes - all scripts works in same way like in slax-6.1.2
    2) you can use 'Slax-Module-Tools' by jayflood to merge multiple .lzm's
    3) changes from v06 should work fine with v07, dont know what's causing mouse/keyboard hang
    4) em should know best why it's like that
    thanks for the feedback

    @ebhomepc
    basically it should work out of the box, although i have seen the same failure on my friends PC. i think that 'udevadm' is calling opensource drm radeon bits (despite of fact that they are blacklisted) which are conflicting with 'fglrx' driver. could you boot with fglrx-10.5 in /slax/modules folder and when hangs happen switch to vt6 (ctrl+alt+F6), log into slax and run 'lsmod | less' command. plese check if any of those drivers are loaded:
    radeon, ttm, drm_kms_helper, drm, i2c_algo_bit
    if yes, then i'll try to find quick solution.

    Hi cant relly tell you when i type lsmod loads of txt comes on the screen but i cant see some as there is too much to fit the screen? this problem happend on the last v06 i was never able to fix it. Can you use the driver fine? like i sead im usinh a ati raedon 4890hd 1gb gpu.

    yes - it works for me out of the box on HD 2600XT. could you boot fresh v07 + 006 devel only, download ati drivers and install it on your pc:
    https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-10-5-x86.x86_64.run
    maybe fglrx should be built separately for 2xxx and 4xxx series?

    EDIT:\\
    forgot to mention - you will need 2 extra patches cause fglrx doesn't support kernel 2.6.34 officially.
    here's building instruction:
    chmod +x ati-driver-installer-10-5-x86.x86_64.run
    sh ati-driver-installer-10-5-x86.x86_64.run --extract ati
    cd ati
    wget http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/catalyst/catalyst/fglrx-2.6.33.patch
    wget http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/catalyst/catalyst/fglrx-2.6.34-rc4.patch
    patch -p1 < fglrx-2.6.33.patch
    patch -p1 < fglrx-2.6.34-rc4.patch
    sh ati-installer.sh . --install

    dot is important in the last command.

    good luck!

    One of my old ati modules automatic...

    #!/bin/sh
    echo "Please wait...ATI_Drivers_8_59_2_automatic_(Mar 13 2009)..."
    modprobe -r radeon
    modprobe -r drm

    If your card is not an ati try this:
    xorgconfig
    (save the changes and then customize your xorg.conf with)
    mcedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    (In Graphics Device Section in twice Section Device change
    driver "vga" for your current driver "nv","sis","via"...
    save changes with F2 and quit with F10 finally type startx)

    Note:The original xconf of slax is /usr/bin/xconf-slax"

    -----------

    Above script is inside all of my olders ati-automatic modules to slax.
    Is in /usr/bin/xconf and original xconf slax is renamed to xconf-slax.
    This solve problems with properly load fglrx driver.

    Hope this helps!

    reply
    @gusterrapolis
    thanks for this script! will add it to next fglrx driver. i was always using your modules in Slax-6x releases and could remember some workaround. now i know where to search for it :)

    @ebhomepc
    1) installer will do this
    2) for modules compiled from sources you can use '--prefix=' parameter. for binary installers you can try my changes script:
    #!/bin/bash
    clear
    changes=/mnt/live/memory/changes
    tmp=/tmp/work$$
    path=/root/changes$$

    echo "enter time interval or press enter for keeping default value (3 minutes):"
    read int
    if [ $int != "" ]; then
    time=$int
    else
    time=3
    fi

    #creating tmp dir
    mkdir $tmp

    #locating and copying newly created/modified files
    file=`find $changes -mmin -$time`

    for x in $file; do
    cp -P --parents $x $tmp 2> /dev/null
    done

    #we dont want to store /root and /tmp folders (you can add or remove paths which will be excluded from saving)
    rm -r $tmp/$changes/root /$tmp/$changes/tmp

    #moving all stuff to final destination
    mv $tmp/$changes $path

    echo "all files created/modified in last $time minutes were copied to $path folder"

    so after installation you can run this script and then build a module from /root/changes$$ folder - be aware that it wont work for installers which include files precompiled few days/months ago (like Virtualbox files placed in /opt folder).

    Hmm well well your changes script worked nice i managed to make a module for the ati driver via this script and it works nice but my question now is are there lots of extra junk files in this module and can i compair the file content with your ati driver module and delete any if any extra files that may be there? PS Thanks very much.

    Hi yes i removed 2 files thay was the only extra different files and it all works fine Although i think we can remove all the var files as these all seem to be temp files am i right what do you think? also my module is a bit bigger than yours so i think your right there are different modules for 4800 series i can upload the module for all 4800 series users if you like me to? also is there any reason to keep the man pages and logs that you have in your module?

    (save the changes and then customize your xorg.conf with)
    mcedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    (In Graphics Device Section in twice Section Device change
    driver "vga" for your current driver "nv","sis","via"...
    save changes with F2 and quit with F10 finally type startx)

    Note:The original xconf of slax is /usr/bin/xconf-slax"

    so users will be able to use xconf cheatcode to generate proper xorg.conf files for their cards. Save original 'xconf' from 002-desktop as /usr/bin/xconf-slax.

    thanks for this module - surprisingly it's working fine also with my hd 2600XT so i have replaced my 'fglrx' module in 'download section' with your one.
    2 things which i have changed:
    1) 'chmod +x /usr/bin/xconf' - otherwise this script wot be executed
    2) removed /etc/X11/xorg.conf - as purpose of 'xconf' script to create this config on every different pc.
    download link:
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/zy4njni3zgt/ati-fglrx-10.5-remix-v07.sq4.lzm

    so in next release i'll ask you (or other person with hd4xxx/hd5xxx card) for creating fglrx driver as my module cant work for everyone.

    Thanks

    Hi Fanthom,

    I was giving a fight for 4 days with php-5, imagemagick, and gd library in order to setup them on Slax-remix-v06 and finally I managed it. So when I got back to forum, first I was very surprised when I saw Remix-v07 is out and my name is mentioned in a suggestion; thanks for both :)

    Also, I feel like I could get on the Remix Train by adding more than suggestions.

    Great! I told you remix was COOL :

    Slax-Remix-vX where X is 1,2,...,7

    Have made and are making great strides. Upon my installation of Slackware x86_64 on my machines, I could not get the modem drivers to compile (32 bit) one problem(yes, you and Quax mentioned it), but Slax Remix has come to rescue. I have managed to find fixes for compilation errors on newer 2.6.33.2 and 2.6.34 kernels for the PCTEL modem:

    http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/bigarch/archive-tenth/msg01081.html

    As I have a pctel module here:

    http://www.slax.org/modules.php?action=detail&id=2487

    If Slax 7 were to be released today, I think I would be ready for a module all possible thanks to your hard work with slax-remix releases :) Now I need to find/check the other modem drivers and see where they are at at this time?

    Cheers!

    How do u create a sudo user in Slax Remix v07
     
    mocabilly
    wrote 4 years ago


    reply
    ERRATA:
    You will have to convert these modules from Squash3 to Squash4 first!!!
    There is a special program (script) included into slax-remix for this task.

    "adduser" Should work in Slax.. (to create a nonroot user)
    http://linux.about.com/od/commands/l/blcmdl8_useradd.htm

    For the sudo command you seem to need an extra module:
    http://www.slax.org/modules.php?action=detail&id=2343

    And that module needs this one:
    http://www.slax.org/modules.php?action=detail&id=2968

    so, if you have these 2 modules activated, you should be able to use visudo in a terminal..
    http://www.pendrivelinux.com/how-to-add-a-user-to-the-sudoers-list

    Needless to say you'll have to boot slax with some kind of "save changes" option.. ;)
    If you keep track of the changes, you could build your own slax module for it, so you'll only have to do
    the adduser thing once.
    (unpack the 2 modules, merge them together, add the directories & files from the changes directory - regarding the newly added user(s) to it, and dir2lzm it all again into one module... kind a thing)

In the orginal slax 6.1.2 this process works and i can create a sudo user module but in this Slax Remix version after inserting the user module and booting up the user cannot login as DCOPServer does not start.

    Ok I have sorted out the issues of creating a sudo user

    Solution :-
    1. adduser username
    #Give a password and select all defaults

    2. chmod 777 /var/tmp

    3. vi /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc
    ***********************************
    change "AutoLoginUser=root" to "AutoLoginUser=userid_of_user_you_created" then save the file
    ***********************************

    4 logout of root

    5. login as username

    6. mkdir /new
    cd /new
    cp -av /home
    cd /home/username
    rm -rf .DCOP*
    cd .kde
    rm -rf cache-slax socket-slax tmp-slax

    mkdir etc
    cp /etc/shadow /etc/passwd /etc/group /etc/sudoers

    echo "userid_of_user_you_created ALL=ALL" >> etc/sudoers

    mkdir -p etc/kde/kdm
    cp /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc etc/kde/kdm/

The old ati that fanthom did originally did not work on my system so we tested the new one and all seemed well. Can you tell me are you using any modules that edit or change your xconf/xorg? Also dont use the module from the 4shared as its been updated.

Fanthom can you check with your ati module start slax and wait till near the end of the boot and then press ctrl+s to pause and you will see the error. and on the pic above on the line 19,20 the error is made because of the text at the bottom if we remove the comment at the bottom the error is gone.

    first error is not important - script is trying to unload opensource drivers, in case when they are not loaded - theres nothing to remove so output should go to /dev/null. second line can be removed i think. will try it tomorrow.
    thanks for mentioning it.
    i hope that 'fglrx-installer' will work as expected so we wont need precompiled 'ati-fglrx' driver in download section.

    EDIT:\\
    i have checked it and second error is cause by extra " (very last character) in xconf script. it's not cousing the hang for sure. let's wait on news from Blaze's friends.

The sticky bit can be set with chmod +t /tmp or chmod 1777 /tmp for all of you that might have some problems with non-root processes and users that can't write to /tmp or /var/tmp.

So to make things easy for people thay can use the script by fanthom all though this will only work for that specific driver version is there any way for the script to detect the latest version? This is not a problem for me as i can do it manual way but maybe for others.

    Automatic script to load properly fglrx driver (ati catalyst propietary driver).
    Put in.../usr/bin/xconf and make it executable.

    If your card is not an ati try this:
    xorgconfig
    (save the changes and then customize your xorg.conf with)
    mcedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    (In Graphics Device Section in twice Section Device change
    driver "vga" for your current driver "nv","sis","via"...
    save changes with F2 and quit with F10 finally type startx)

    Note:The original xconf of slax is /usr/bin/xconf-slax"



    This script was very tested over a lot of different versions fglrx drivers.
    All lines are needed.Line about tvtime bug is optional but recommended.
    In some cases some kernels configurations load properly fglrx driver without need this script but using it is not a problem anyway.
    Is better modprobe -r than rmmod.Use modprobe -r...

    please post 'lspci' and 'lsusb'

    @Syntux
    it's new feature of updated squashfs-tools i guess - working on it:)

    @Blaze89
    good news :)
    will merge 'slax-remix-fglrx-installer' to next release so. i think that ebhomepc can provide precompiled fglrx driver and in case of troubles people can use fglrx-installer to build 'fglrx' driver for their own GPU's.

    @ebhomepc
    will try to make autodetection for latest version. in case of fail one of us will edit this script and post it here.

    @gusterrapolis
    some explanations:
    1) 'depmod -a' is not necessary as slax always does it during boot when rc.modules script is run.
    2) 'ldconfig' is also unneeded until users put fglrx module in /slax/modules dir (rc.M is searching for extra modules in /slax/modules and when they are found it runs ldconfig). we can also force it when module is placed in /slax/base by mistake:
    if cat /proc/mounts | grep loop | cut -d " " -f 1 | xargs -r -n 1 losetup | grep "/base" | grep "fglrx" >/dev/null; then
    echo "Updating shared library links: /sbin/ldconfig as fglrx module is found in /slax/base directory"
    /sbin/ldconfig &
    fi

    3) i agree 'modprobe -r' is better :)

    so this is my proposition:
    #!/bin/sh
    echo "Please wait...creating xorg.conf for ATI_Drivers..."
    modprobe -r radeon drm > /dev/null 2>&1 # unload opensource drivers
    if cat /proc/mounts | grep loop | cut -d " " -f 1 | xargs -r -n 1 losetup | grep "/base" | grep "fglrx" >/dev/null; then
    echo "Updating shared library links as fglrx module is found in /slax/base directory"
    /sbin/ldconfig &
    fi
    aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf # Creating xorg.conf to ati driver
    echo "
    Now type startx


    If your card is not an ati try this:
    xorgconfig
    (save the changes and then customize your xorg.conf with)
    mcedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    (In Graphics Device Section in twice Section Device change
    driver "vga" for your current driver "nv","sis","via"...
    save changes with F2 and quit with F10 finally type startx)

    Note:The original xconf of slax is /usr/bin/xconf-slax"


    in this version boot process wont be slowed down by unnecessary depmod and ldconfig commands. i didn't check it yet but should work :)

    please try and report if they are working fine for you.

    @Btown
    i'm lost a little bit - do you want to install slax on usb or Micro cd? if on usb then just copy /boot and /slax folder on your usb stick and run 'bootinst.bat' (windows) or 'bootinst.sh (linux). if on cd then copy those two folders to /root directory, make all necessary modifications and then run /root/slax/make_iso.sh to create new iso image which can be burned to your cd. You will need 001-core and 002-desktop only to boot into graphical mode with lxde desktop :)

    @ebhomepc
    great idea:
    1) will be easier to maintain it through slax page
    2) there is another reason to force users to read the FAQ :)

    (b) What is the procedure to install Slax Remix in Hard Disk as an OS

    1) clover is a logo of slax :)
    2) icons are sorted already - to be implemented in v08
    3) kde loads a lot of shared libs during startup (ie qt) so looks like it's faster. after first run of application under lxde, should be faster when you launch it next time.
    4) works for me:
    http://img688.imageshack.us/img688/9062/snap0000.jpg
    use slackyd to download 'gparted' and all dependencies. also need to downrev 'parted' to version 1.8.8 from slackware-13 repo:
    http://slackfind.net/en/packages/search/?name=parted&distversion=5
    5) same as for normal slax - search forum,
    if you have windows already i would recommend 'grub4dos':
    http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=49788
    if not, then 'lilo' would be my choice.
    6) ext4 (my favorite) or xfs - recommended by Tomas M

    i did all the steps mentioned by you. The problem is that after i make any partition with gparted, the partition's mount point does not appear. So i cannot mount the partition. The problem lies with the auto detection of partions. As mount point entries are also not visible in /etc/fstab. I have to manually create the entry and then create the mount directory under /mnt then only gparted provides me with the mount options. Kindly give a solution to it.

    Thanks

    "The problem is that after i make any partition with gparted, the partition's mount point does not appear. So i cannot mount the partition. "

    This may be a quirky gparted behaviour . If you were to make one partition, gparted cannot mount it , but if you were to make another partition , you will find that gparted will detect the first new partition.

    If you quit and restart gparted , it should be able to detect all the new partitions.

    @Btown - actually it was to mr goodsman
    afaik syslinux is for FAT and iso. i would try with lilo if you're going to use linux fs. theres liloinst.sh script in /boot folder which should be helpful in installing lilo on your hd or pendrive.
    you can use 'cfdisk' to create and modify partitions. jcsoh is right - i had to restart cfdisk to get access to newly created partitions. konqueror automounted them under /media dir.

    @rob
    dir2lzm works for me. make sure that you are not doing any operations on slax modules on windows partitions!
    -----------------------------------------------------
    this is Service Pack for slax-remix-v07:
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/mdmrhmcwhmw/Slax-Remix-v07-Service-Pack-1.zip
    WARNING: it's a 'zip' archive not lzm module :)
    Contains mainly bugfixes for all discovered issues and one new feature - 'fsck' for linux filesystems: ext(2,3,4), xfs, reiserfs and jfs. you just need to append 'fsck' cheatcode to enable it. it's highly recommended to do this until you are not recovering broken partitions (thanks Quax for mentioning it).
    Fsck is enabled by default for 'copy2ram' mode in provided slax.cfg file.
    Changelog for Service-Pack:
    kernel config:
    - enabled devtmpfs
    Boot folder
    - slax.cfg: cmdlinerow moved one line up - was still conflicting when editing pxeboot option
    - initrd: rebuilded busybox to get full 'vi' window, also removed some unnecessary applets
    - when copy2ram cheatcode is used root partition will be unmounted like it was before v07 release - needed for fsck
    - optimized linuxrc and liblinuxlive for slax-remix needs
    001-core
    - rebuilded rc.S, rc.M and rc.4 scripts once again so modules containing kernel drivers are depmod'ed before udevadm operates, speedup tweaks etc
    - fixed rc.6 script so all devices are unmounted correctly with changes=/slax cheatcode
    - enabled fsck for linux partitions (also root with copy2ram) when 'fsck' cheatcode is used - highly recommended
    - 'verbose mode on' for 'dir2lzm' and 'lzm2dir' tools (thanks Syntux for bug report)
    - /tmp and /var/tmp have writing permissions for normal users again (also Syntux)
    - fixed 'rc.font bug' in Language-Selection-Tool
    - 'sns-tool' 'slax2usb' and 'language-selection-tool' are launched in xterm not konsole - for compatibility with lxde (thanks Btown)
    002-desktop
    - modified /usr/bin/xdm to allow national language support in lxde desktop (thx Blaze for bug report)
    003-kde
    - modified desktop shortcuts so they can be used under lxde as well
    006-devel
    - added missing headers for lxpanel - /usr/include/lxpanel/lxpanel.h

    all changes from 00* modules are gathered together in one 008-Service-Pack-1 module. put it in /slax/modules replace original vmlinuz, initrd.lz and slax.cfg and reboot.
    should be working fine :)

    BTW - with tweaked initrd.lz and rc scripts i'm getting 15 seconds to full kde desktop:
    http://img809.imageshack.us/img809/9265/bootcharti.png
    dont know how it's possible but remix-v07 with SP1 is actually booting faster than my gentoo box!!

    Enjoy :)

    EDIT:\\
    1) i have placed it in Download section so new users could spot it without reading this post.
    2) your existing kernel dependent drivers will work with new kernel so is not necessary to rebuild them

    Thanks for your SP1, which seems to make Slax Remix 07 behave quite a bit bit snapier :)
    I don't know whether it is due to switching to from VMware 7.0.1 to 7.1.0 or SP1 or the combination,

    Some questions regarding sysv start/stop scripts in Slax Remix 07:

    Due to backward compatibility all of my modules use some sysv start/stop scripts which basically work fine, but:

    1.) When I halt or reboot the system Slax Remix 07 does not seem to use the stop scripts in /etc/rc.d/init.d, although I have the appropriate symlinks in /etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K* and /etc/rc.d/rc6.d/K*. Is Slax Remix 07 using these stop scripts at all?

    2.) In other Linux distros you can track sysv start scripts in /var/log/messages or with dmesg, but in Slax I only get kernel messages. How can I enable this behaviour?

    Thanx,
    Syntux

    Hi fanthom

    It's been a long time since I've posted on here, because I pretty much gave up on Slax due to the lack of maintenance.

    I appreciate you making this system. The other Slax is that old it's not much good. Yours works nicely on my laptop, and has some nice touches. I compiled some programs and made some lzm modules as usual.

    I put it on a USB stick to give it a go (with old Slax still on the solid state hard drive), and it worked nicely... once.

    From then on, it generally doesn't want to work. It gets stuck at the udev stage of booting.

    I've tried setting up the stick again, which I use ext2 with liloinst.sh and go through the same steps. It seems pretty hit and miss, but mostly miss. Is there a reason for this?

    I usually take the changes=slaxchanges out of the bottom of lilo.conf and delete the slaxchanges directory to keep it fresh all the time. Even if I keep it original as the iso and liloinst.sh makes it, it keeps getting stuck at that udev part of boot.

    Any ideas?
    Also, do I need to replace the initrd.lz that it starts with, with the other one from your download area?

    1) booting should be little bit faster but the rest is vmware i would say :)
    2) can i get example of this application? would be easier to debug this issue.
    3) i guess that it's determined by /etc/syslog.conf. Does it work for slax-6.1.2?

    @Spice_Boy
    Welcome back :)
    1) udevadm is a 'pain in the ass' in slax. try 'nopcmcia' 'nohd with from= cheatcode' 'nohotplug' etc. please also try Service Pack 1 as it contains updated rc scripts.
    2) initrd.lz from download section is the clean one (without bootsplash) so users can add their own. that's already explained in the faq - reading it is generally a good idea :)

    @bour59
    will redirect whole output to /dev/null in next release/Service_pack. thanks.

    @Blaze89
    can add xdg-utils but would like to refuse ark-addons as we dont have rar and p7zip shipped with remix, so no point.

    1) (*) means compiled into vmlinuz - opposite to (M) which is external kernel module.
    2) you can get official sq4lzma patches from Philip Lougher tree:

    @Btown

    2) already answered in lxde thread
    3) kommander - will check it
    4) slax2usb should work when you boot from cd and want to install slax on usb. will try it myself to be sure that it works

    All of the individual packages that make up each of these is available within the 1000, 2000, and 3000 directories located here http://www.moboard.com/slax/slax-remix-v07/

    Congratulations for the remix. Great!
    I have been using it since the release of v05. It work right out of the box for my Wifi card, which uses to be a little tricky with slax 6.1.2. Unfortunately, the context menu for convert modules in Konqueror, are now missing from my remix. Even after a fresh install. Someone could point me the way to look for a solution?
    Thanks for the attention,
    Palangu.

    after 2 hours of experiments i found out that you need to put K* scripts in runlevel 3 and not 6 as stated by slax documentation. after those wasted 2 hours i found this post which confirms my thoughts:
    http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=25859
    now i know that 'search' button on this forum is there for a reason :)

    BTW: how it's possible that this issue was highlighted more than year ago and documentation is still not fixed?

    @Btown
    kmdr-editor is missing in 003-desktop - i presume that Tomas M removed it to save space so i'm going to delete relevant .desktop file so it'll be wiped from Kmenu.

    @kenney
    thanks a lot - will link your repo in the initial post :)

    @ebhomepc
    that's different initrd.lz

    I'm not quite convinced yet, but I do see that your Slax is really the only future it's got, so I'm putting hope in it!

    It's still too random if it wants to start or not. I tried your servicepack mod, and also the cheatcode. Keep in mind I use ext2, and things I read about cheatcodes seem to talk of the graphical bootup which is what the fat32 install gives you. Either way, I put it in lilo.conf so it now looks like this:

    boot=/dev/sdb
    prompt
    timeout=40
    lba32
    compact
    change-rules
    reset
    install=text
    image=/mnt/sdb1/boot/vmlinuz
    initrd=/mnt/sdb1/boot/initrd.lz
    label=Slax
    root=/dev/ram0
    read-write
    nopcmcia
    append = "ramdisk_size=6666"



    It initially worked, but then I did nothing but restart it, and again it gets stuck on that udev part :(

    it would be nice if kpdf is part of koffice then it would definitely be a lean office suite, don't know where to suggest kppp, whether in fire firefox or koffice ( yeah i know Can't please a lot of people especially if it invovle recompile a lot of library )

    food for thought for all developers n programmers
    end user doesn't care what behind an OS as long as it is user friendly n quick, but some of them will become young einstein n when they look inside the code what make linux tick they will thanks u guys

    and remember this thats how bloatware got a big slice of OS my bet is still with linux though

    Well my last usb wlan adapter i could never get to work it was a cheap generic one so i thought i would buy a new one a TP-Link TL-WN321G and i tested in windows 7 ultimate x64 and wow it installed its self so i was happy then i thought i would try slax Remembering i have never got any linux to work with the internet and with the use of sns-tool it was a breeze no problems so im very happy thanks so much.

    Hate to mention this, because it might be like a low blow to the excellent work that you have done, but I must let you know.

    I never doubt that the context menu works at v07. I just puzzled it vanishes from my remix versions and don't know where to start to fix it. Actually, it does not show anymore in v05, v06 and v07, even after a fresh install and with no extra modules. I guess something gets corrupted in my files...But I'm sure that sooner or later I figure it out. It's a minor problem.

    nice - will add it to initial post. just 2 small things for next packages:
    a) please put remix version in module name as it wont work with other versions (to not confuse the users).
    b) /lib/modules/2.6.34-remix/fglrx directory can be removed (module is comied to /kernel/drivers/drm something).
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    rewritten slax2usb script is ready and works fine for me:
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/yuo2zg4jyiy/slax2usb.sq4.lzm

    i have added two new features:
    a) possibility of choosing custom (primary) partition size - cant be less than 32M.
    b) possibility of choosing custom linux fs type for second partition: all ext's, reiserfs, xfs and jfs - last one will be built in (*) in v08.

    3) 'modprobe configs' :) - no point for bloating kernel with having it compiled in (*)

    I think it is not bloating - thus you make troubleshooting easier because one can do a

    'zcat /proc/config.gz | grep CONFIG_xxx'

    in case something isn't working as expected.

    If it's only sqlzma4 and aufs in addition to the vanilla kernel having the .config would be sufficient.

    Hi.
    I have been trying to make work a Conceptronic C150RU usb wireless adapter. It has the RT2870 chipset. Kernel module rt2870sta loads correctly, but it is not able to find the firmware rt3070.bin. Copying /lib/firmware/rt2870.bin to rt3070.bin gives error messages. I attach the relevant dmesg part:

    Ndiswrapper is included in Slax Remix, ¿right? I tried it, and it gave me kernel errors when I inserted the module. Maybe I did somethig wrong: Plugged the interface, "rmmod rt2870sta", "ndiswrapper -i rt2870.inf", "modprobe ndiswrapper"; then, kernel errors.

    @teamanx
    I'm no expert regarding ndiswrapper but:

    NDISwrapper requires at least the ".inf" and the ".sys" files invariably supplied as parts of the Windows driver. For example, if the driver is called "mydriver", with the files mydriver.inf and mydriver.sys and vendorid:productid 0000:0000, then NDISwrapper installs the driver to /etc/ndiswrapper/mydriver/. This directory contains three files:

    * 0000:0000.conf, which contains information extracted from the inf file
    * mydriver.inf (the original inf file)
    * mydriver.sys (the driver file)

    And it seems like ndiswrapper needs windows xp drivers, can not handle (yet) ndis 6 (vista) drivers.NDISwrapper does not implement NDIS 6 (Windows Vista version) yet, limiting drivers to Windows XP [1]. While it is not a major problem for the x86 architecture because of the vast popularity of Windows XP x86-32, many vendors choose to make 64-bit drivers only for Windows Vista—which means that Linux systems using the x86-64 architecture are unable to use such networking devices.

    2) no - first reason: you can install iso on usb easily, second: my upload is 256Kbit only.

    @teamanx
    please try firmware provided by flux (thanks for that) and when you still will be in troubles try to repeat everything which you have done before:
    a) plug your stick in (to try drivers provided by kernel first)
    b) take it out
    c) install and load ndiswrapper module
    d) plug your stick back
    e) upload /var/log/dmesg to pastebin.com and post weblink here for review

    you can also give a chance to drivers from Ralink site:

    Thanks for your investigations! So what are your recommendations or plans for Slax remix? Do you want to fix this in Slax Remix 08 or should I rather use K* in runlevel 3 then? Are you sure that this will really do the job, since I am not sure whether this is working? Did you get some reply from Tomas about this yet?

    Regarding /etc/syslog.conf can you say out of you head which parameters could possibly show any messages of my SYSV scripts? This would make it much easier to log any problems in start/stop sysv scripts.

    Thanx,

    @Syntux
    1) there's nothing what i can fix here. you need to understand how those scripts works. Let's say that you are switching from runlevel 3 to runlevel 0, so after execution of command 'init 0':
    a) all scripts from /etc/rc.d/rc3.d with K* in name are executed (because you are leaving runlevel 3), then
    b) all scripts from /etc/rc.d/rc0.d with S* in name are executed (because you are entering runlevel 0)

    also: you could name your 'shutdown scripts' as /etc/rc.d/rc6.d/S*, so they would be started when 'entering' runlevel 0. for sure you cant name them as /etc/rc.d/rc6.d/K*. hope it's more clear now.
    2) will send an email to Tomas M about it.
    3) i have added 'deamon.* /var/log/deamons' to /etc/syslog.conf but all the feedback which i got came from 'acpid' daemon. half success so. make sure that your services run in 'verbose mode' and produces some log files in /var/log directory.
    additional info:
    http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/security/security-handbook.xml?part=1&chap=3#doc_chap2
    btw - i'm using metalog on gentoo box and it works nice although also doesn't log everything i want.

    Thank you so much for your explanation and hints :) I think I understand now better and will do some experimenting based on these findings.
    I also experimented with 'daemon.* and user.*' but could not see any messages of my scripts in the logs unfortunately. Can you say how to write a start/stop SYSV script that it produces verbose logs? Most stuff is displayed using echo "..." and I can see this at startup, but how to also make it visible in a file?
    Do you know by chance any good example code here? Usually in other distros my scripts worked out of the box and were logged in /var/log/messages.

    What do you think using upstart (http://upstart.ubuntu.com/) for Slax Remix or would you rather leave this to Slackware or Slax/Thomas? Could this bring even better startup times due to parallelizing start scripts?

    1) what about forcing logging in /var/log/messages? lets say:
    echo "shutting down apache server"
    echo "shutting down apache server" >> /var/log/messages

    i know it's another 'ugly hack' and syslog should work as it should but have no other ideas at the moment.
    2) some services can be started in parallel and some cant - apache needs to wait for rc.inet1 etc. i didn't try upstart but i think that rc.* scripts in v07 are optimized in 90%. i'm getting 15 seconds to full kde desktop! i think it would be very hard to do it faster :)

    @jackwssp
    1) Blaze could you sent the patches and building instruction to jackwssp? i'm damn busy at the moment (working 7 days a week).
    2) Zen HOWTO is quite outdated comparing to shape of latest remix, anyway with some luck you should be able to follow it successfully.

    @bour59
    1) will add it to next 006-devel. thanks
    2) will post those values later on - need to recreate v07 kernel first. do you want it for Service_Pack_1 or clean v07?

    i got slightly smaller size for the kernel after recompilation so heres new vmlinuz and System.map:

    I believe I can help with the use of nouveau driver on Slax Remix(es). Why? I have used the following advice:

    http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/install-nouveau-on-slackware-13-1-for-nvidia-gpu-owners-808820/

    I successfully used this how-to and loaded nouveau in Slackware 13.1 x86_64 with self compiled 2.6.34 kernel. I believe I can try to do the same for remix or test it should you include it the next time? The nv driver is no longer being supported by Nvidia(free one used in Xorg), the other one(s) are.

    Just an FYI,

    I tested my SysV init scripts and they work fine now when I put the S* (Startscript) AND K* (Killscript) or rather links in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d, rc4.d and rc5.d :)

    Some small improvements, I would like to see for Remix 08:
    1.) /etc/rc.d/rc.6:
    # Run linux-live cleanup-script:
    if [ -d /mnt/live ]; then
    cd /mnt/live/
    exec ./cleanup $command dev/console 2>&1
    fi

    This is cleaner when using the same scripts with a full installation of Slax Remix.
    Once you made that changes I will send you a tiny script that allows full installation to VMware/VBox/HDD.
    I am still improving it, though ... Stay tuned.

    2.) Set LC_ALL="C"

    Thanx,

    make sure you use SP1, put this module in /slax/modules and reboot. kernel should set correct resolution automatically as KMS is enabled by default in nouveau.

    @Syntux
    1) /etc/rc.d/rc3.d is enough :)
    2) full installation is not recommended, i know that i wont prevent users from doing it so can add this to the rc.6. Anyway it's gonna be harder to make 'full install' as i have moved some parts of rc.S to initrd/linuxrc for speedup purpose.
    3) you can post this script here - but you'll be responsible for maintaining it :)
    4) previously requested by kenney, will be done in next release

    Congratulations fanthom!! Good work. Or may I say good work to all the contributors as this is an enthousiastic community effort. It seems it will make laptop owners like me happier.

    HDD INSTALL:
    This version of remix works for this computer of mine a MSI X340 laptop. I work around with it enough to be pleased on CD and it made me move to a hdd install (or frugal install as it is called in this forum). Mounting content of iso on the right partition with:

    root@slax:~# mkdir /mnt/iso
    root@slax:~# mount -o loop -t iso9660 /mnt/sda1/slax-remix-v07.iso /mnt/iso

    I found a few minor bugs but will keep up for now on my specific interests. Waiting to be more familiar with the beast.

    DUAL DISPLAY:
    Working around with it, I just realized that contrarily to slax612, the virtual screen is wide adjusted and the screen resize icon will take maximum size for my second screen. With its huge virtual screen setup it has the potential to take most dual screen setup:

    root@slax:~# xrandr
    Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 3286 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192

    Thus there is no need to modify the xorg.conf file to accomodate two screens. All I needed was a script to accomodate my BENQ g2220 additional monitor:

    xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode 1366x768 --output VGA1 --mode 1920x1080 --right-of LVDS1

    And putting that script in the /root/.kde/Autostart folder will automatically at boot up accomodate the second screen plugged up to my laptop.

    WIFI:
    I like very much to be plugged automatically with the kde > internet > wpa_gui. The one that you have does not work for me yielding the message: command wpa-gui not found. I do not know what solution you will consider, but under slax612 I had the same problem and solved it:

    http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=48569&highlight=msi%20x340

    But it might be a bug only for the MSI X340. I will try it on another laptop.

    FIREFOX:
    For some reason in Firefox, it is not possible by left clicking and holding down to slide hyperlinks from one place to another in the side panel of the bookmarks, but also from the actual window url to the panel of bookmarks. But this might be a minor problem. However contrarily to slax612's firefox module remix's firefox will allow in view > toolbars > customize the option for small icons: a function that I appreciate.

    SLAX MODULE CENTER:
    Wonderfull idea. I can't wait to work with it. This seems very promising. Is there any howto hyperlink for this one?

    1.) Really? I will try, but does it mean we will never get runlevel 5 or others?
    2.) I run Slax Remix 07 fully installed on VMware 7.1 (Win PC) and VirtualBox 3.2.4 (Mac) and can very nicely use it to develop lzm modules, etc. Once finished, I can also create a modified Slax Remix ISO image and install my modified modules on USB Memory stick. So like this, Slax Remix builds a complete eco-system to develop things for itself :) Can you please explain since when you had done this modifications and what they are and what problem you see for a full install? It would be good to maybe cover this in my script then.
    3.) No problem, I can maintain this script.
    4.) I saw that Kenny had requested this already, but wanted to express that there is more users
    5.) Do you roughly know when you want to release Slax Remix 08 or SP2?

    Cheers,
    Syntux

    i'm glad that you like it :)
    1) wpa_gui needs qt4 which is not included by default for one reason - size
    2) you can set up your network by reading FAQ answer 10
    3) Slax Module Center by bonapart:
    http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=60857

    @Syntux
    1) Slax uses only 3 runlevels in fact:
    a) 0 and 6 - for shutdown and reboot
    b) 1 for maintenance
    c) 3 for normal work in multiuser environment (runlevel 4 is the same as 3 +GUI)
    more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runlevel#Slackware_Linux

    2) i have implemented some changes in SP1 already:
    a) /etc/mtab is deleted at initrd stage (to avoid remounting of root '/' partition in /etc/rc.S)
    b) root partition is not mounted read only when linuxrc is finishing - fsck doesnt make sense on aufs (original fsck part is also removed from rc.S - i have my own implementation which better suits slax)
    generally i would recommend to go with original/untouched rc.S, rc.M and rc.6 scripts from this package:
    http://slackfind.net/en/packages/search/?name=sysvinit-scripts&distversion=9
    when you want to go with 'full install' cause i can mess up those scripts even more in next releases (slax is different than slackware so some unnecessary things can be changed/removed).

    3) SP2 should be out next thursday when my jail at work will finish. i have discovered serious bug in SP1: when you use 'copy2ram' and 'changes=/slax' cheatcode you'll finish with unbootable system (you can try it yourself - it's safe). i have fixed it already but need some time to gather rest of fixes all together.
    remix-v08 should be out in 3rd-4th week of July when i return from holiday.

    @Btown
    please do small test for me:
    a) plug your usb stick in
    b) run this command "dmesg | tail -n 5" and paste the output here

    hey Fathom
    how does your SlaxRemix configure X?
    I compiled new 2.6.34 zen kernel and now "xconf" from Slax will not work??
    it worked with Quax's 2.6.33.3 kernel but not this one....
    even doing X -configure bombs out saying segfault
    using xorg 1.8.1...

    osser; I compiled 2.6.34 with zen patch which has all patches
    http://zen-kernel.org/2.6.34-zen1-back-in-the-saddle

    and Ritchies new x86 LinuxLive works fine building livecd with this kernel
    except for X not being able to configure...?!

    Are all of you running remix on cd or are most of you running on frugal install?

    congratulations! and don't celebrate too much :)

    @linus72
    standard slax's 'xconf' does the job. i remember that in v05 or v06 i had to remove some dodgy xf86-video-* drivers which were causing segfault as well - they were removed in slackware-13.1 anyway, so should be fine now.

    @Btown
    i was expecting something like:
    sd 4:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk
    seems that yous stick is not recognized by the kernel - are you able to mount it and use it (copy/write) at all?

    @francois.e
    i have this problem as well :) my todo list is quite empty at the moment. one thing comes to my mind: refreshing of icon scheme in kde as we (with Blaze) did only small part. i know it might be not exciting job but would be nice to have new, refreshed kde icon look :)
    if you are interested - please post the result here. one condition - size of the icons must be relatively small (ideally - same as original).

    @fanthom

    Thanks a lot for your valuable feedback. I really appreciate this. Thanks :)
    1.) I will try then with SysV scripts in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d only and see whether this will also work
    2a.) Isn't /etc/mtab created dynamically anyways? So deleting it won't hurt also for a full install?
    2b.) fsck is important for non aufs filesystem I guess. Right now with SP1 everything seems work to fine as far as I can say, although I found that /etc/matb seems to have multiple entries of the same kind and that the filesystem seems to complain about some inconsistencies from time to time? I will try whether I can use the original Slackware scripts then.
    3.) Curious to see how things will work with SP2 then :)
    4.) For a full install I don't use the original /etc/initrd.lz, but rather replace it with initrd.splash which only carries the boot splash picture. Do I need anything else in initrd.lz at all or does vmlinuz carry all the neccessary kernel files for a full installation?
    5.) Is there any possibility to make an animated boot splash image, i.e. use a progress bar? I have found some hints and pictures that this could work, but I could not find any proper docs howto? Do I need to activate animation in the lilo.conf line like append = "splash=silent quiet"?

    reply
    The 'CD eject after copy2ram' function is hardcoded into liblinuxlive - thus one would have to unpack initrd.gz
    change the setting for 'cd_autoeject' from '1' to '0' in liblinuxlive and repack initrd.gz.

    Please don't blow up the forum by posting the same question in several threads and stick to the first thread
    where you have asked for the function...

    That's to be answered nearly the same ;) :

    The 'CD eject before reboot' function is hardcoded into cleanup - thus one would have to unpack initrd.gz
    change the setting in the 'eject cdrom devices' section in cleanup and repack initrd.gz.

    p.s. Concerning your sound problem I have no clue, sorry.

    @Syntux
    2a) /etc/mtab must be recreated after each reboot otherwise it will confuse your system as hell.
    2b) please go with standard slackware rc.* scripts.
    4) kernel, /sbin/init and rc.S is all what you need - and you have it already.
    5) yes, it's possible. you need a special bootspash theme and modified rc.* scripts. didn't have enough of free time to check it so if you get it to work please share your findings - maybe i could implement it in next release.

    @JMan
    will check if i can add it by default to next release. thanks

    @dark2x3d
    1) in case of troubles with editing files mentioned by Quax you can also unpack initrd.lz and:
    cd /(path to unpacked initrd)/bin
    rm ./eject
    ln -s ./busybox ./eject

    'eject' applet is not compiled into my busybox, but it shouldn't matter.
    2) please post the output of 'lspci' and 'ls -al /dev/snd' commands

    @Btown
    i know where the problem is: KDE menu is still pointing to old jayfloods script (menu entry will be fixed in v08). open console and launch '/usr/bin/slax-usb.sh' - you'll run my script then. Sorry for confusion.

    That's to be answered nearly the same ;) :

    The 'CD eject before reboot' function is hardcoded into cleanup - thus one would have to unpack initrd.gz
    change the setting in the 'eject cdrom devices' section in cleanup and repack initrd.gz.

    Quax

    p.s. Concerning your sound problem I have no clue, sorry.


    Well, I checked cleanup and there is no difference between slax-6.2.0 and slax-remix-v07
    but why in slax-6.2.0 when I want to reboot will not eject CD, but it will eject CD before rebooting in Slax-remix-v07 ??

    1) looks like kernel driver for your usb microphone (webcam?) is loaded first and takes priority over Intel HD card. to prevent it - just add 'blacklist snd-usb-audio' to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and 'modprobe snd-usb-audio' to /etc/rc.d/rc.local. in this case your webcam will be initalized after HD card and your sound should be fine.
    you can also try to set priorities by editing alsa.conf file as described here:
    http://alsa.opensrc.org/MultipleCards
    which should be more elegant way.

    2) did you try to delete /bin/eject as advised by me before?

    ===========
    yes it's work fine when delete "eject" but not link it to busybox !

    thank you so much !
    ==============

    add 'blacklist snd-usb-audio' to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and 'modprobe snd-usb-audio' to /etc/rc.d/rc.local.

    I did this but nothing is change !!
    I did not understand alsa settings in link !

    I have sound is work fine with slax-6.2.0, so
    did you change some sound settings in slax-remix ??

    first of all - you didn't do what i have asked you for:
    1) you suppose to use pastebin.com for data (which also means that you didnt read FAQ answer 14)
    2) provide output of 'cat /proc/asound/cards' command
    i'm fairly sure that your usb microphone acts as a primary alsa card, so blacklisting 'snd-usb-audio' as described above is the correct way of solving this,
    and it works fine for me
    before blacklisting:
    root@slax:~# cat /proc/asound/cards
    0 [U0x46d0x8a2 ]: USB-Audio - USB Device 0x46d:0x8a2
    USB Device 0x46d:0x8a2 at usb-0000:00:1d.1-1, full speed
    1 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
    HDA Intel at 0xfdff8000 irq 25
    2 [HDMI ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI HDMI
    HDA ATI HDMI at 0xfddfc000 irq 26
    root@slax:~#

    after blacklisting:
    root@slax:~# cat /proc/asound/cards
    0 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
    HDA Intel at 0xfdff8000 irq 25
    1 [HDMI ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI HDMI
    HDA ATI HDMI at 0xfddfc000 irq 26
    2 [U0x46d0x8a2 ]: USB-Audio - USB Device 0x46d:0x8a2
    USB Device 0x46d:0x8a2 at usb-0000:00:1d.1-1, full speed
    root@slax:~#

    as you can see usb is now the last in queue.

    your wifi should work out of the box. type 'iwconfig' and check if it's named as 'wlan0' (some people had it as wlan1). in case of troubles post /var/log/dmesg on pastebin.com and post weblink here.

    @fanthom:

    Nice to you to try to find some way to put me into motion for remix. However, design is not my primary center of interest. I prefer to leave that topic to professionals or to almost as professionals. In fact I like very much the original facture of slax as it is. And in fact in my use of remix the first thing I have done is removing the wallpaper. As one says all tastes are in nature. I will find some ways of being useful later. For now I will be an observer.

    I am mostly interested in laptop use. Two main problems are those of wifi and of dual display. Thus, what was of outmost interest to me were the aspects of wifi and of dual head for laptop use for MSI X340 and HP pavilion 2713ca laptop. Remix worked a little better on the dual display issue with its bigger virtual display but did not worked completely for me out of the box, xrandr is still needed (I have an intel graphic card on the MSI).

    Wifi programs had to be implemented manually thru changes in wpasupplicant.conf and use of command line. The sns-tool utility did not worked for me. I have tried it repeatedly (though I hope not in the wrong manner).

    Is there ndiswrapper installed stock on remix for BCM4328 wifi driver installation (HP pavilion 2713ca)? Is there any gui facilitating such an installation of windows drivers when linux driver do not work well (in this case the wl.ko driver)?

    My problems in firefox in trying to move links from one location to another by sliding them just went away at reboot or with the installation of your service pack.

    Cheers or à la votre ou santé.
    I am at crossroads concerning linux as an OS produser. I wonder if I would not be of better use on constructing material for wikipedia?

    @francois.e
    1) could you describe sns-tool issue in more details - maybe i could fix it?
    2) ndiswrapper is included but without gui and preinstalled drivers. users need to convert Windows drivers themselves, which isn't too hard - IMO. Will add info about it to remix FAQ.

    @dark2x3d
    1) i think it's new udev package which loads the kernel modules in pararell mode (more randomly). Anyway blacklisting of 'snd-usb-audio' and loading it with rc.local works fine.
    2) did you get your wifi to work? what 'iwconfig' command shows? pls try to learn how to use pastebin.com and show me /var/log/dmesg
    3) yes you'll have to burn new cd, you can include SP2 - which i'm just releasing.

    @Btown
    sorry but i cant recreate your error, no mater which fs i choose i never gets: /usr/bin/slax-usb.sh: line 114: [: missing `]'
    are you sure that you are using 'slax2usb' script after booting from CD?
    ------------------------------------------------
    this is Service-Pack-2 for Slax-Remix-v07:
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/nhqqxj2nntz/Slax-Remix-v07-Service-Pack-2.zip
    Includes everything from SP1 + more so it's recommended to delete old /slax/base/008-Service_Pack-1-remix-v07.sq4.lzm module. you can find clean initrd.lz in /slax/optional dir if needed.
    Changelog:

    - crond output redirected to /dev/null in /etc/rc.d/rc.M (bour59 request)
    - sns-tool entry in kmenu is fixed now
    - added rewrited slax2usb script, two new features: possibility of choosing custom primary partition size and fs type for second one (please test it as Btown reported some problems with it)
    - red colors changed in all my scripts for lxde compatibility
    - updated memorytest86 in /boot dir to latest version (thanks to ebhomepc)
    - Slax CD/DVD in automounted again in /mnt directory. Not all discs - just Slax.(new2slaxuser suggestion)
    - lxde (preconfigured by me) is bumped to latest version from git (Ponce rocks!)
    - LC_ALL=C is back in /etc/profile.d/lang.sh (thanks to kenney)
    - fixed copy2ram with changes=/ cheatcode (when used both together were causing unbootable system in v07/sp1)
    - added firmware for RT3090 wifi usb sticks (thanks to flux)
    - added 'nouveau' driver for Nvidia GPU's (thanks to tonio). For 3D acceleration you still need to use official Nvidia driver.
    - added /etc/modprobe.d/BLACKLIST-nouveau.conf so nouveau driver wont be loaded by default. if you want to try nouveau driver - just remove this file or comment out its content

    As you can see changelog is not too big. please test nouveau driver as i would like to remove obsolete 'xf86-video-nv' package in v08.

    Thanks if you could add it /or create a independent module. By the way, the SCSI device is not used to be a boot device.

    --- added 'nouveau' driver for Nvidia GPU's (thanks to tonio). For 3D acceleration you still need to use official Nvidia driver.

    Is it the reason for the "black screen" problem while slax is running on box with some nVidia GPU driver, such as g100M, G200M series?

    Please provide size in megabytes for FAT32 boot partition
    can't be less than 32M, otherwise system will be unbootable!!
    example: 64M
    1024M

    Please choose linux file system type for the second partition,
    currently supported are: ext2, ext3, ext4, xfs, reiserfs and jfs

    example: xfs
    ext3............(copying files to USB stick (using explorer) Ext4 all files are saved to Ext4)

    2) only this:
    - fixed copy2ram with changes=/ cheatcode (when used both together were causing unbootable system in v07/sp1)
    @cttan
    dont have it - sorry. btw - why you need sp1?

    @bour59
    i didn't recompile kernel in sp2 (it's old one from sp1) so you can use System.map from sp1. i'll provide it every time when new kernel appears. Dont know how to read those values without System.map

    @Btown
    you are damn right!
    please edit slax2usb.sh script in line 114, theres a missing space between " and ], it should look like that:
    if [ "$fs" = "reiserfs" -o "$fs" = "jfs" ]; then
    please try again with this change applied. thanks

    Thanks for Service-Pack-2.

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/nhqqxj2nntz/Slax-Remix-v07-Service-Pack-2.zip

    At this moment is working fine to me and without problems like Service-Pack-1 conversion tgz/txz to lzm.
    Fine with all my modules.

    Good work.

    :)

    Hi fanthom,

    just tested your latest SP2 with my modules and for the first view everything worked great. Thank you :)
    Even my full installation script works still fine, even though you did some further changes to the rc.* scripts as you announced.
    I will still use Slackware's orginal scripts as you recommended for the future.

    One thing I recognized also with Slax Remix 07 and SP1 are that the KDE menue does not pick up krusader.sq4.lzm anymore, i.e. no icon is displayed in the Utilities menue.
    Can you please point me out a proper way how to add menues and menue entries that KDE and also LXDE will pick them up properly? Thanks.

    By the way could you also provide the original Slax Remix boot splash screens and configuration file?
    I like to add them to my hdd install script ...

    Cheers,
    Syntux

    for KDE this would be a good start, besides the slax doc. on how to make a proper module ( http://www.slax.org/documentation.php )

    This will not change the values in the wpa_supplicant.conf file.

    If I put the information manually and then use the following script:

    ifconfig wlan0 up
    wpa_supplicant -B -Dwext -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
    sleep 10s

    seems that your card needs extra time to get initialized - good that it's sorted :)
    ------------------------------------------------
    This is the latest build of Mplayer patched for 'multithread' and 'vaapi' support:
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/ycodmmzmnmi/Mplayer-r31288-vaapi+mt-fanthom.sq4.lzm
    Needs 003-kde and 004-kdeapps modules activated.

    VAAPI is an Intel library which provides access to graphics hardware acceleration for video processing on Linux:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_Acceleration_API
    Luckilly we have Nvidia 'vdpau' and AMD/ATI 'xvba' backends to vaapi so playing 1080p movies is possible on many PC configurations!
    How to enable 'vaapi' feature?
    'vaapi' as mplayer video output needs to be selected as in example below:
    mplayer -vo vaapi -va vaapi /path_to_movie/
    VAAPI works on Intel GPU's (not all, dont know which - sorry), Nvidia cards which uses 195.X driver and AMD/Ati cards from HD series - Catalyst 9.10 or higher

    When you dont have such GPU requirements in your PC but have 2 or more cpu cores, you can still play HD movies with Mplayer by using 'multithread' feature.
    To enable it just add:
    mplayer -lavdopts threads=2 /path_to_movie/
    to mplayer systax. in this case workload will be balanced between 2 cores and tearing effect should be gone.
    Good trailer for testing is here:
    http://www.digital-digest.com/movies/Predators_1080p_Theatrical_Trailer.html
    when playing on my HD 2600XT with 'vaapi' output, cpu utilization is about 1-8% :)
    Please test it cause i would like to add it to remix-v08.

    fanthom

    I really like this remix of slax because of the new kernel, but i have a small question.
    Is the kernel optimized for modern CPU's (dual cores and up) or is it i486?
    If its not would it be possible to supply a optimize kernel or the sorce + all patches used in this distro for custom finetuning?

    hi Blaze,
    looks like nouveau driver is loading even that it's blacklisted :(
    did you change anything in /etc/modprobe.d/BLACKLIST-nouveau.conf? did you boot slax with nvidia-195.xx driver or without it?
    i'm asking cause would like to know why nouveau failed.
    to get rid of nouveau driver just remaster SP2 and delete:
    /lib/modules/2.6.34-remix/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau.ko
    /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nouveau_drv.la
    /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nouveau_drv.so

    Cheers

    EDIT:\\
    @forum
    sorry i forgot about your questions.
    1) its optimized for i486 and PAE version for i586
    2) you can use remix patches to build your own kernel:

    hi fanthom,

    1&2. I did not change /etc/modprobe.d/BLACKLIST-nouveau.conf and i tried to boot up slax (from CD & hard disc) with nVidia-x86-195.36.24-remix-v07.sq4.lzm by em
    X11 is crashed again.

    3. I edited SP2 (delete all nouveau) - it did not help.

    I tried run Slax-Remix-v07 + original SP2 + my modules from Window$ =) via Qemu ;) - X11 is started up in all mode, but i received this message - http://i50.tinypic.com/14kia2g.png
    /etc/rc.d/rc.S
    # Only rebuild dependencies if new module(s) are found:
    NEWMODS=`find /lib/modules/2.6.* -type f -mindepth 2 -newer /lib/modules/2.6.*/modules.dep`
    if [ "$NEWMODS" != "" ]; then
    echo "New kernel module(s) found - updating dependencies..."
    depmod -a
    fi

    About Qemu look at this http://www.pendrivelinux.com/qemu-persistent-slax-linux/


    EDIT
    I deleted /etc/rc.d/rc.S in your SP2. I received this message
    http://i48.tinypic.com/1zzrhfn.jpg
    X11 was crashed again. I think updating dependencies of modules is crashing X11 or your a new modification of scripts in SP2.

    EDIT
    I deleted all scripts to folder /etc/rc.d/
    Then i booted up Slax-Remix-v07 + edited SP2 + my modules and it was working.
    Unfortunately i had twice icons on the desktop -> http://s004.radikal.ru/i206/1007/eb/2c3ec132d00e.png

    1) Quemu error doesnt recreate in Vbox and also in real mode (usb, hd). I believe it's some kind of timeout cause quemu is noticeably slower comparing to Vbox. will check it once again by the time of releasing v08
    2) you siad that you removed 'nouveau' drivers from sp2 and X11 was still crashing - can i see /var/log/Xorg.0.log for this error?
    3) add this part to kde or lxde autostart to remove unnecessary icons:
    # need to remove original /root desktop icons
    rm /root/Desktop/System >/dev/null 2>&1
    rm /root/Desktop/Home >/dev/null 2>&1
    rm /root/Desktop/Slax\ Drive >/dev/null 2>&1

    ext4dev might be for Slax 6.1.2, but for remix, you should try ext4 only. ext4 is compiled in on Slax Remix, but not on official Slax 6.1.2. Hope this helps.



    yes T tried slax-remix and my hard work,but when I did restart to slax-6.2.0 ==> the hard is hide!!!!

    That should be right. Slax 6.2 or Slax 6.1.2 don't have ext4 built into kernel, so you were right in trying ext4dev. Sorry. To fix the issue, run Slax Remix and see your hard drive :)

    @fanthom and others:

    I like to understand what I need to do in order to properly setup a language like "German" in Slax Remix?

    So far I have used the following 2 files/changes:
  • /root/.kde/share/config/kxkbrc:
    EnableXkbOptions=true
    LayoutList=de,cn,fr,in,it,nl,es,se,gb,us
    Use=true
  • /etc/rc.d/rc.keymap:
    KEYMAP=/usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwertz/de-latin1-nodeadkeys.map
    echo "Load German keymap: $KEYMAP"
    /usr/bin/loadkeys $KEYMAP*

    This serves Okay for me, but as far as I think there is more to it? At least I found that for Slax 6.1.2 Tomas offers a seperate initrd.gz and a german.lzm module in base.
    I also saw that Slax Remix offers a language-selection-tool which unfortunately does not work, since the following file is missing and there is only support for Polish encodings (pl_PL): /usr/share/doc/language/locale-non-utf8.txt: No such file or directory

    Can someone explain what is needed more or where can I find an appropriate example or module? Why would I need initrd.gz like the one from Tomas (ftp://slax.org/SLAX-6.x/multi-language/6.1.2/?

    Thanks,
    Syntux

    Hi all,

    This is my first public slax module.. I made it for Slax Remix.
    (sq4 - a sq3 version for the regular Slax will follow.)

    Module: Processing
    version: 1.1
    description:
    Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people
    who want to create images, animations, and interactions.
    Initially developed to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach fundamentals of
    computer programming within a visual context, Processing also has evolved into a tool
    for generating finished professional work.
    Today, tens of thousands of students, artists, designers,
    researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning, prototyping, and production.

    * » Free to download and open source

    download:
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/z1yqmydywl5/processing-1.1.sq4.lzm
    EDIT:
    changed the url from http://www.processing.org to http://processing.org as it seems that the url with the "www" part doesn't work..

    EDIT II:
    You need the xdg-utils module if you want to export processing sketches to .java and/or .jar files.
    Converted this sq3 module:

    1) looks like original /usr/share/doc was over-writed by one of your modules. just copy all files from

    if not then please try to boot with nVidia-x86-256.35-remix-v07 in text mode, run 'xconf' and then 'startx' manually.

    You were right, one of my modules was overwriting /usr/share/doc and deleted the doc link :(
    I fixed this and tried to use your language-selection-tool, which helped me to better understand at what different places language settings take place :)

    Nevertheless I found two minor bugs:
    1.) chmod: cannot access `/tmp/language-selection/ett/rc.d/rc.font': No such file or directory
    2.) Type in your choice: iso8859-1. Selected iocharset: iso8859-1 is not on the list, please try once again

    The errors in /usr/bin/language-selection-tool can be fixed e.g. like the following:
    1.) line 154: chmod +x $dir/etc/rc.d/rc.font # just a typo correction
    2.) line 198 & 205: ans=`grep -m1 $fat /usr/share/doc/language/fat.txt` # -m1 will limit the results to only one finding

    BTW, I used the following inputs for German language settings:
    UTF-8 Encoding: n
    Encoding: de_DE
    Console keymap: de-latin1-nodeadkeys.map|de-latin1.map
    Console fonts: lat9w-16.psfu
    KDE X11 layout: de,us
    NTFS/FAT automount: y
    iocharsets for FAT: iso8859-1
    kde-i18n: de
    KOffice: de

    Hello i like to thank for this great release it looks great and works very good. I have i minor problem that may just be a configuration option that i just don't know about yet. The problem is the sound volume is very low. I turned the volume all the way up from the kmixer and in the kplayer but still the volume is at least 2x lower than it is in windows and in my Mint 9 (Ubuntu 10.04) install. Is there any other configuration option to boost the sound volume? My sound chip is integrated in the motherboard and is recognized as (00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)) by lspci and as realtek ALC888 in kmix.

    @forum
    open konsole and type 'alsamixer'. adjust volume settings and make sure that all channles are unmuted (press 'm' to mute, unmute)

    @ebhomepc and others
    firefox provides some libs with default build (like sqlite) so maybe you could add them to your slax/modules and 007-firefox wont be necessary?
    you can identify required libs by symlinks in /mnt/live/images/007-firefox.sq4/usr/lib directory.

    I like vlc player too! but slax, & slax remix already have mplayer. You can put it back in slax-remix, but you need to convert a module to sq4 from sq3 format. You can also try to rebuild it against new libraries use a slackbuild then txz2lzm or tgz2lzm and you will be done :)

    You can make flash plugin by yourself as follows:

    1. download flash plugin from adobe official site (in tar.gz format);
    2. extract the file and you would find libflashplugin.so;
    3. put it in some directory, for instance: /tmp/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins;
    4. make an individual lzm module: dir2lzm /tmp/ libflashplugin.lzm and put it in $USBpendriver/slax/modules.

    Next time as booting from USBpendriver, it would work with firefox and opera.

    This would be very very nice remix v07 with sp2 is for me very stable and its all good it would be good to now stick with the current kernel with v07 and sp2 but implement kde4 latest version i would help as much as i can in bug testing etc.

    default movie player for slax-remix is Mplayer and it'll probably stay like that
    especially when we have 'vaapi' and 'multithread' support. you'll have to add 'vlc' yourself to your slax build.

    @new2slaxuser
    will try to disable cups myself and report back.

    @Blaze89
    thanks - gonna check it soon.

    @forum
    slax-remix provides firefox+flash by default, try to use those to access mediafire.
    in case of fail and i'll upload it somwhere else.

    @forum
    theres another way of resolving opera+flash issue: you can remove 007-firefox module, download flash from slackware repo
    and then use slackyd to track missing dependencies - 'slackyd -d'. slackyd will suggest adding missing libraries automatically.

    @dark2x3d, ebhomepc and others
    i'm still not convinced enough to include kde4 in next release. Anyway it's good idea to start separate thread for 'kde4'
    so people could test and develop this module for later usage by everyone. please start another thread like we did for 'lxde' desktop.

    by "display errors" you mean X11 not starting? if you are interested in latest remix - may i see /var/log/Xorg.0.log?

    please answer my questions in remix thread."

    When booting up remix 07 on a lenovo b450 laptop , I get a black or rather no display.
    It's not really an issue as I am running standard slax 6.12 , but I need slax remix 06 with a newer kernel as it recognised my ethernet card
    as opposed to Slax 6.1.2. Again it is not really an issue as I used the laptop offline , but it's nice to know I can make it work with slax remix 06.

    Thank for your offer of assistance , but I will try it again with remix 08.

    aah.... try to look at end user point of view...... As a computer system they need :

    core, startX, KDE4 n office (at the very basic, WP & spread) then mplayer n browser, my guess the total is about 350MB (not counting additional libs n so forth), if they opted for oOo so it can read docx file my guess is about 400 mark (hopefully less then 400MB after fine tuning).

    on a i686 with 512MB ram it take 5 min mark, can u imagine on i386, i486 n i586 on the same ram (or less) config ????

    Thats why remix breath new life on these 3 technology... i mean multi thread, dual core/core duo or atom NXXX got no problems with that size....

    anyway coffee shop still open n finish DLed hopefully KDE4 thread appear....

    Use the module convertion tool in slax-remix to transform those modules to sq4 modules
    put them in your "slax/modules" directory and activate them all, or re-boot.

    As long as those modules stay in the slax/modules directory, they will be "auto-activated" at slax boot.

    i sorted out opera+flash (without firefox) issue. i ran 'slackyd -d' which showed:
    libssl3.so required by:
    --> Package: flash-player-10.1.53.64-i386-1X (/usr/lib/opera/plugins/libflashplayer.so)

    then i downloaded and installed two packages:
    seamonkey-solibs-2.0.5-i486-1.txz
    sqlite-3.6.23.1-i486-1.txz
    and flashplayer works with opera flawlessy without 007-firefox module:)
    slackyd is a great tool and i think i'll stick with it even that is not developed anymore.

    @Blaze89
    1) your slax build has plenty of modules which are causing troubles, you can sort it in 2 ways:
    a) reduce number of modules
    b) add 'vmalloc=512MB' (256MB also should be enough) to kernel parameters in /boot/slax.cfg
    2) problem with 'underquoted definition of AM_PATH_IMLIB' lies in 'imlib' package which is written badly,
    this issue is not sorted yet with latest imlib-1.9.15-i486-7 version but shouldnt harm any compilation - it's just a warning
    more info: http://bugs.gentoo.org/89894
    3) waiting on new icon scheme so :)

    @new2slaxuser
    i'm not able to recreate the error, works for me with 'chmod 644 rc.cups'. cups doesn't start and all icons are visible.

    @beny
    your config looks fine except of one thing - for remix-v07:
    CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED=
    should be 'n' due to updated 'udev' package. to be 100% sure -
    i would take .config from remix-v07 and copy it to unpacked and patched zen sources dir and then:
    make oldconfig
    make && make modules install

    should work :)

    @em
    initial post updated with new path - thanks.

    @futureng
    works for me. do you have enough of free memory to make this operation?
    try to extract this module and then use 'mksquashfs' utility ot 'dir2lzm' one.

    Hi guys! I've got this tiny little script called "autoslax" that I keep in rootcopy/sbin and I'd like it to be automatically executed right after slax boots up. To do that I had autoexec=autoslax appended as my boot option and everything was fine until I updated to v07, because it's broken now. Any fixes?

    Can anyone tell me how i can force Slax to boot in 1440x900 resolution instead of 1024x768? I tried adding vga=866 867 and 868 but all of them send me to 1280x960. I also tried vga=0x0365 and it had the same effect. In Ubuntu 10.04 this works by default at 1440x900 so is the remix lacking support for this. And just to be clear i mean console/text mode not gui mode in X the rezulution is fine.

    A new icons theme for Slax Remix is ready.

    Links:
    slax-inspirate-part1.sq4.lzm -> http://www.mediafire.com/?qlei6twzavxtuck
    slax-inspirate-part2.sq4.lzm -> http://www.mediafire.com/?9ibqolhfztcsz62

    I have not exposed chmod in new icons theme for Slax Remix (many files)!


    Instruction.

    1. Unpacked the 003-kde.sq4.lzm
    2. Unpacked the slax-inspirate-part1.sq4.lzm
    3. Delete in the package 003-kde.sq4.lzm
    /usr/share/icons/
    these folders:
    crystalsvg
    hicolor

    and this file
    default.kde
    4. Copy all contents from slax-inspirate-part1.sq4.lzm to /usr/share/icons/ (003-kde.sq4.lzm)
    5. Unpacked the 004-kdeapps.sq4.lzm
    6. Unpacked the slax-inspirate-part2.sq4.lzm
    7. Delete in the package 004-kdeapps.sq4.lzm /usr/share/icons/ these folders:
    crystalsvg
    hicolor

    8. Copy all contents from slax-inspirate-part2.sq4.lzm to /usr/share/icons/ (004-kdeapps.sq4.lzm)


    It is possible to reduce the size of the Slax Inspirate theme - need to delete unnecessary mimetypes in slax-inspirate-part1.sq4.lzm

    @ebhomepc
    1) superkaramba is not included as it needs 'python'. you can get it from here:
    http://www.slax.org/modules.php?action=detail&id=948
    2) tango icon set is a part of LXDE desktop and can't be removed unfortunately, hicolor icons are used by kdeapps.

    will try to squeeze everything under 190MB in v08.

    1st many thanks for everybody involved. I like it :)
    But unlike classic Slax, Remix-v07 w applied SP2 works fine for me only in "always fresh"/"copy to ram" modes. Otherwise the k-desktop loading hangs at the stage "Loading Desktop" and i get strange register dumps in the dmesg "BUG:Sheduling while atomic..".

    It is not HW specific - tested on amd laptop and on intel desktop.

    Also i get messages from various fs drivers (ext4, reiser) that they can`t find a superblock even if i don`t have such partitions. Maybe the way it detects/mounts partitions should be reviewed.

    looks like for some reason only obsolete xf86-video-nv driver works with your build, last clarifications:
    does nVidia-x86-256.35-remix-v07.sq4.lzm work with SP2 and withuot your modules?
    Does nouveau work with SP2 and withuot your modules?
    BTW - i have found that your 'dvb-007-3mix' package has unwanted files in /lib/modules/2.6.34-remix/ folder (modules.dep, modules.alias, etc). you need to delete them otherwise you may expect some troubles with loading kernel dependant modules, all covered by slax documentation:
    http://www.slax.org/documentation_create_modules_rules.php
    please read section 5.

    @Gele
    looks like your filesystem got corrupted - common issue also with official slax. please use slaxsave.dat for storing changes:
    http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=64744
    please boot v07/SP2 with basic modules only (nothing extra added). sometimes modules from slax-6.1.2 can cause errors on remix due to different glibc, other libraries, etc.
    finally - please provide 'dmesg' uploaded on 'pastebin.com' site for reviewing of mounting issues.

    Regards,
    fanthom

    EDIT:\\
    @Blaze89
    i was able to recreate the error on my slax build - i have used 30+ random modules downloaded from slax site and booted on pc with nvidia card and nVidia-x86-256.35-remix-v07.sq4.lzm module. as expected - X11 didn't start and i got exac same error in /var/log/Xorg.o.log as you had.
    then i added 'vmalloc=512MB' cheatcode and X11 started up without problems:
    http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/1158/snapshot1bl.png
    it does also work for nouveau and 'vmalloc' parameter
    'vmalloc' cheatcode should work for you. please try once again.

    Thank you, fanthom!
    slaxsave.dat placed in the root folder (not in slax or boot) and cheat code seems to solve some "strange" problems i had. I`ll do more testing and post the results. I had corrupted filesystem also. But this invalidates the following statement I read (& believed in) at the top of the page:
    Solution: error does not recreate when you use slaxsave.dat container. fixed in Service-Pack-1 (bug closed) - it`s should be reopened.
    I think that if the fix is impossible by now, this workaround could be default in the cfg file and changes.dat could be created by the install scripts - asking the user to choose the size.
    I guess that the remaining space in changes.dat (when used) is the free space on the root (aufs) file system inside slax. I wonder also where to place the .swap file to be automatically found and what the directory [BOOT] is used for.

    Then i booted up Slax-Remix-v07 (with vmalloc=512MB cheatcode) + SP2 (with nouveau) + my modules (edited dvb-007-3mix) + nVidia-x86-256.35-remix-v07.sq4.lzm and it was working.

    1) good that changes issue is sorted.
    2) this error was slightly different - usb was umounted before slax modules and caused hang during reboot/halt. your issue (posixvol compatibility for windows filesystems) cant be fixed easily i'm afraid, at least i'm not able to do it.
    3) you mean 'bootinst.bat' 'bootinst.sh' and 'liloinst.sh' ? hmm... interesting, i can add info about 'changes=/slax/slaxsave.dat' cheatcode to those files :)
    4) slaxsave.dat is just mounted over aufs so size of container determines size of aufs (root partition).
    5) when booting hangs with: "looking for Slax data Directory", you will have an access to the debug shell so take those actions:
    a) run 'lsmod' and make sure that aufs kernel module is loaded
    b) run 'blkid' and check if slax booting partition is recognized correctly
    c) try to mount it manually in for example /tmp/hd dir
    let me know about the result
    6) Qemu is a virtual machine and has different "hardware" than host machine. that's why slax is booting correctly.
    7) what you mean by strange state for numlock and capslock?
    8) kmdr-editor and wpa_gui are already answered in this thread - please search.
    9) your sda2 partition is an extended one and theres no real filesystem on it, looks like you have partitioned your hd under windows and it causes troubles.
    slax tries to mount it with all available fs's and still cant. my partition table created under linux looks like that:
    /dev/sda1 * 63 19535039 9767488+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda2 19535040 39070079 9767520 a5 FreeBSD
    /dev/sda3 39070080 615369824 288149872+ 5 Extended

    /dev/sda6 58605183 62605304 2000061 82 Linux swap / Solaris
    /dev/sda7 62605368 129548159 33471396 83 Linux
    /dev/sda8 129548223 160264439 15358108+ af HFS / HFS+

    /dev/sda11 517710753 615369824 48829536 7 HPFS/NTFS

    my id of extended partition sda3 is '5' (your is 'f') and i dont have such messages in /var/log/dmesg. it's not a big issue - IMO.
    10) slax will find and use all available swap partitions during boot. if you want to use swap file then you need to mount it through /etc/rc.d/rc.local as /etc/fstab is overriden on every boot.
    11) BOOT folder could be omitted but i would leave it as it contains essential files for booting process and users shouldn't mess with those files (except of editing config files). they can do all mess in /slax/folder - except of *.sgn file.

    Some of your questions have already been answered on slax forum so please search before you ask. i would like to answer only 'slax-remix' specific questions in this thread.

    @Blaze89

    @Syntux

    list of cheatcodes is here:

    this is the list of cheatcodes which works with slax-remix only:
    Slax-Remix specific cheatcodes.
    ===============================

    Here is the list of cheatcodes introduced in 'slax-remix'. Be aware that boot
    parameters listed below wont work with official slax release.


    locale=utf8
    language=utf8
    lang=utf8

    ... Tells slax-remix to mount ntfs partitions with UTF-8 encoding. To be
    implemented in remix-v08


    fsck

    ... Enables filesystem check for ext(2,3,4), xfs, reiserfs and jfs on non root
    partitions during boot time. Works also for root partition when copy2ram
    or toram cheatcodes are used. Introduced in remix-v07/SP1.


    autoexec=lxde

    ... This parameter will let you use lxde as default desktop over KDE one.

    i'll update /slax/cheatcodes.txt in remix-v08 to reflect those changes.

    If I copy an *.ico file to /root/Desktop it appears in size 32x32, but when I refer to the same file over a *.desktop file it appears as an 48x48 size icon?
    I found how to change the icon size of the taskbar, but how for the desktop?

    size of Slax Inspirate icon theme is at acceptable level, with old mimetype we could save 1,5 MB so not too much. i't your baby so you decide :)

    even in original 003-desktop 128 size folder is nearly empty so i guess it's designed to be like that.

    @Fanthom:
    - On "intel-p4-D" machine the boot doesn`t hang with "looking for Slax data Directory", but with Boot Failed "Please change disks and press a key to continue" and when i press - the boot manager on the first hdd loads it`s boot menu (grub,centos); I`m going to prepare ubuntu boot disk @usb hdd & try booting it.
    - at laptop: I`ve changed id of my extended partition from f to 5 (like yours) via fdisk. It didn`t fix the minor problems - slax still tries to mount the extended partition w every FS available.
    - with strange state of keyboard upon boot I mean that it acts like num lock is active, but if i press caps-lock TWICE it deactivates the leds and normal typing is O.K.;
    - i understood that libQtGui.so.4 for wpa_gui was so big that you ripped it, but I didn`t get then why wpa_gui is still there ?
    - i know why "/boot" folder is there :-); what i didn`t know is why (on fat32) a "/[BOOT]" folder was there. There was a file called Bootable_NoEmulation.img inside. Now I know it`s not necessary - the boot part from the live remix-v07 ISO.
    Tomorrow i`ll test at work if it would boot on a fairly new E8400 intel machine w asus MB.

    @dark2x3d
    here's the story:
    1) slax starts dhcpcd for every network interface which is found. in your case wlan0 obtained IP from the router and eth0 didn't get it (there was no router connection for eth0 ) so it received IP from the standard pool which is 169.xxx.xxx.xxx (not sure exactly). it really doesn't matter which IP eth0 has because all traffic goes through wlan0.
    2) question about 'vaapi' was directed to all 'Intel' remix users, not just you :) it has no relationship with your wifi indeed.

    @Gele
    1) some adviced from the slax forum:
    a) try to format usb stick with older fat-16 filesystem or linux fs (ext2 or xfs are the best choices for pendrives)
    b) burn /boot folder on CD and put /slax folder on pendrive. in this case slax will start booting form CD and then it finds *.sgn file on pendrive so continues booting from usb
    Adventages:
    - works for PC's with usb booting issues.
    - you can save persistent changes on usb stick.
    let me know if it works for you.
    2) looks like changing of partition id is not enough. i guess that you'll have to make repartition under linux to get rid of this behaviour. as i said earlier - not worth the hassle.
    3) true - didn't know about it :) you can disable numlock startup by:
    chmod -x /root/.kde/Autostart/numlock
    4) wpa_gui is still there because some users (who can afford qt4) might need it. i dont want to force them to reinstall 'wpa_supplicant' just because one (small) component was removed.
    5) first time i hear about 'Bootable_NoEmulation.img' - from where it comes from? did you use unetbootin or any 3-rd application to 'burn' iso image on usb stick?
    6) all credits goes to Blaze89 - i have just done small reconfiguration. seems that remix-v08 will be even more attractive as Blaze is preparing new icon scheme :)
    btw - thanks for the feedback

    @FLLinux
    there's no such script unfortunatelly. you can use those patches to build your own custom kernel:
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/3wtfnwd4ehy/remix-v07_patches.zip
    in the FAQ there's link to kernel HOWTO which might be helpful - good luck :)

    @francois.e
    1) 'gparted bla, bla, bla folder already - Where would be that folder?'
    in the folder in which you make the conversion. try to use slackyd to download latest gparted module.
    2) 'media' folder is for removable devices (mounted by hal), 'mnt' folder is for all devices present in the system when slax (or any other linux os) boots up. where did you get 'read only status'? on the pendrive? maybe 'dosfsck -wa /dev/sdb1' could help you?

    @Btown
    does it mean that you sorted out 'Boot Failed: Please change disks and press a key to continue' issue with grub4dos boot loader? that would be great - no need to use slax-boot-usb-from-cd.iso image by Gele :)

    1) boot remix with basic modules only (also witout your changes) and you will see it - your extra modules are messing up here. btw - you could find the answer yourself by reading remix FAQ answer 14.
    2) SP2 is a service-pack which contains small fixes/improvments before next release. chengelogs for sp1 and sp2 are in this thread - just search for them.

    @fanthom: :-) Thank you for your suggestion # 1)-b - to burn a CD - it`s a funny idea, but since the classic slax boots there, I decided that remix should do it as well. I was able to get it to work, here`s how:
    I`ve found an old Pen drive with slax 6.09. It was able to boot - OK; Moved the old slax to the usb hdd & ran bootinst.sh (as root). Boots w success. Then I decided to remix the remix:
    - took the vmlinuz (kernel) from my remix-07-sp2 "boot" folder & replaced the original; copied the initrd.lz and renamed it to initrd.gz; re-ran bootinst.sh from old slax;
    - copied the slax-remix-v07.sgn to slax folder (next to livecd.sgn) & tried to boot - success, but no modules were found so it failed to start init.
    - copied the "base" & "optional" folders w remix-v07 .lzm images & tried to boot - classic slax boot art-work shows but then remix loads.
    For me this looks like there is a relat. rare problem with syslinux used in remix-v07
    ====
    Disabling numlock startup really helped (didn`t know that there is such scrut) - the keyboard is in the normal state.

    Bootable_NoEmulation.img appears when one extracts a bootable .ISO image with some archivers.

    @mierdamann Sp2 is pack of bugfixes(AFAIK) which is easy to apply - just copy over the original.

    @fanthom: The things got strange again - it works now (copied all original remix-v07 files over it). Now I`m wiping the entire partition w dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdb1. I`ll try again w clean disk and clean remix-v07-w-sp2 copied over... could be faulty hardware (hdd) or corrupted FS ( but why then it worked under qemu ?! ). I`ll never understand, but as long as it`s working I`m happy.

    Hello. I have made an observation that might solve you're problem. I too have almost none lzm options in konqueror in slax if the lzm files are located on my ntfs partitions (i run slax from hdd), BUT if I copy the lzm packages to the desktop wich is in the virtual fs or whatever slax loads to, then all options are present and working. I dont know if this is a problem or intended behavior but maybe it will be the same for you.

    fs is not the reason. you wont get conversion options only when you go through konqueror -> Storage Media -> your device. in this case you can see something like 'system:/media/sdb1/slax/base' in konqueror url field and need full path to module (ie: '/media/sdb1/slax/base/001-core.sq4.lzm').

    this is the answer from my post above:
    you wont get conversion options only when you go through konqueror -> Storage Media -> your device. in this case you can see something like 'system:/media/sdb1/slax/base' in konqueror url field and need full path to module (ie: '/media/sdb1/slax/base/001-core.sq4.lzm')
    'system:/media/sdb1/' is not a valid path. open konqueror, go to home directory first and then navigate to '/media/sdb1/' - you'll get what you want then.

    Hello. I would like to ask for some information regarding slax modification. I want to update some parts and delete the old ones. I unpacked firefox module and updated it to 3.6.8 that was easy because it was a module containing only one thing. How do i update pakages that are part of biger modules ? For example i want to replace old mplayer with the new one in this thread, but how can i remove the old one. I mean is there something like a package manager that can tell me all files included in a package so that i can manualy remove them from the modules and replace with new ones (and get rid of useless ones like kdegames)? I tried slackyd but its info option gives only basic info like file version and size but i basically need to know all files it contains.

    I think it's less of an effort to just build a new module.
    If you download the slackware package of a program, you can easily convert it to a slax module by using
    the tgz2lzm command.
    debian packages should work too (deb2lzm)

    To compile a program from source (in a temp. directory and heavily customized options using the .configure
    command and finishing with the dir2lzm command) is kind a time consuming..

    i have found making slax modules from sources as easy as:
    ./configure --prefix=/usr (other settings)

    @fanthom and others,

    as I use Slax Remix not just on USB and CD, but also very successfully on VMware and Virtualbox, I wonder if I can increase performance a bit, when I would use VMwares VMI (Transparent Paravirtualisation) enabled in the kernel. See also http://www.vmware.com/technical-resources/interfaces/paravirtualization.html.
    I looked at /usr/src/linux/.config and found the entry "# CONFIG_PARA_VIRT_GUEST is not set" and I assume I would need to set this and recompile the kernel in order to enable Paravirtualization? Do you have any experience whether this is worth it? Any hints what I need to watch when recompiling? Could you please send me your kernel sources or can I just grab them from kernel.org? Maybe if it is worth it, could you please include this in future kernels?

    1) lucky you :) with simple bash scripting i have made similar functionality for linux version :P

    @ebhomepc
    i have bumped ati-installer script to version 10.7 - please try it/test it and upload fglrx module somewhere so other users wont have to go through this themselves.
    btw - 10.7 doesnt need any patches for 2.6.34 (and hopefully 2.6.35) kernels.

    Is it possible to run text mode in high resolution? When i start slax text mode it runs on 1024x768 but my LCD mon is 1440x900 and low rez looks very ugly and so little text fits in the screen. I run the remix on a hd4650 card with the module driver 10.6 from here. I boot with grub4dos from HDD and tried some vga= options with codes foe 1440x900 found on wikipedia but none of them work - give error or have no effect. In X mode the rezolution is ok. I tried adding mode 1440x900 in fb.modes but that had no effect eather.

    Thanks. I just downloaded and compiled kernel 2.6.34.1 with your patches, now including PARAVIRT Options, but I wonder how to build initrd.lz, since I lack mkinitrd? Or should I just use your initrd.lz and copy all updated files (e.g. modules) in there?

    reply
    hi syntux, open initrd.lz, mount in a folder, change lib modules with your version kernel modules,repack everything,btw if you use slax remix you have to change also 001.core specifically lib folder kernel version.then you can use vmlinuz of kernel 2.6.34.1 and initrd.lz modified

    reply
    Thanks beny,

    this is what I also thought, but with kernel 2.6.34.1 once I did make modules; install modules
    1.) There are quite some more modules in /lib/modules/2.6.34.1-remix as I found in initrd.lz. Do I only use the ones from initrd.lz?
    2.) Some modules seem to be larger as in initrd.lz and I wonder if I can repack them since initrd.lz is limited in size?
    3.) Some libs like libgcc_s.so.1 in initrd.lz don't seem to exist in /lib or have even a bigger version?
    4.) What about all the modules.* files in /lib/modules/2.6.34.1-remix? Some are quite a bit larger as in initrd.lz!

    according to this:
    http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB#Framebuffer_resolution
    you supposed to use 'vga=869' for widescreen 1440x900 resolution. if it wont work then you can give a chance to opensource xf86-video-ati driver (remove fglrx from /slax/modules) - to enable KMS just follow FAQ answer 6. it will work for sure :)

    @Blaze89
    and i do respect your choice :)

    @Syntux
    as it's for testing purpose only - would be much easier if you could enable PARAVIRT option on 2.6.34 kernel (not 2.6.34.1) so replacing vmlinuz would be enough i believe.
    if you still want to go with 2.6.34.1 then you need to follow beny's advices. use .config from 2.6.34 (make oldconfig) to avoid problems, replace vmlinuz, kernel modules in initrd.lz (only those ones which are already there!) and 001-core. you can strip kernel modules down from debugging symbols as descriped in documentation so size will be smaller. be aware of new path /lib/modules/2.6.34.1-remix in initrd and 001-core.

    good luck!

    charly,

    It would depend on when you plugged in the device :)

    Why?
    if you plug in the device with remix already running, you would see your disk/device in /media/disk, /media/disk-1, ..., /media/diskX

    if it was plugged in when remix was starting your devices would be in
    /mnt/

    either
    /mnt/sdX or
    /mnt/hdY

    as for the not all files are shown, you would probably need language modules?, since not all characters are shown, plus the locale that
    you could be using? This has happened to me as several files have weird characters, but I can see them :)

    EDIT:

    Has anyone tried installing mstcorefonts in remix or normal slax. In Ubuntu i extract the msfonts in /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ and some config files in /etc/fonts/ but in slax this has no effect. The only success i had is to extract the msfont files in the kde special path fonts:/ in konqueror and rebuilding the font cach with 'fc-cache -f -v'. I don't know where fonts:/ points to in the file system. This allows me to select tahoma and other ms fonts but the config files for them don't seam to have effect and the fonts are not antyalized and therefore ugly fuzzy. I need the msfonts for gtk applications. The included free fonts in slax look good in kde qt applications but they are huge and ugly in all gtk based.

    Can I overwrite the existing files in /usr/src/linux-2.6.34-remix or should I rather put them /usr/src/linux-2.6.34?
    Why do I need the existing kernel-stubs (crippled kernel) at all? For compilation of some software, since it carries headers, etc.?

    Can you please activate the PARAVIRT Options for Slax Remix 08 Beta? VMI seems to be deprecated, though, but all the other options should be beneficial for VMware/VirtualBox ...

    Hi all,

    I Can't get a network connection (to the internet) in slax-remix when running it in qemu.

    Host system: Ubuntu 10.04
    qemu -version: "QEMU PC emulator version 0.12.3 (qemu-kvm-0.12.3), Copyright (c) 2003-2008 Fabrice Bellard"
    (I downloaded the needed network rom files)
    (apt-get installed it)

    Without extra network options, "ifconfig" only shows the "lo" (localhost), no sign of eth0.
    lspci does show:
    "00:03.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 20)".
    which is the same as shown in slax 6.1.2, where networking does work, probably something to do with
    the slax 6.1.2 kernel supporting that nic.

    After applying the argument "net nic,model=ne2k_pci" I did manage to get the eth0 interface
    with, IP address, but it's not a good one, it starts with 169.x.x.x as you know, this isn't an
    IP address that get's you a connection to the internet.
    It's like the (qemu)DHCP server does not provide a valid IP-address.
    Setting the default IP address (10.0.2.12) for qemu clients, doesn't solve the problem neither.

    Which nic,model card does work with slax-remix in qemu?
    Which arguments do I have to alter/add?

    good that it's sorted

    @Syntux
    1) give your kernel different name - search google if you dont know how - (ie 2.6.34-syntux) and put crippled sources (or full sources) in /usr/src/linux-2.6.34-syntux.
    2) yes - crippled sources contains headers and .config which are needed for plenty of packages
    3) sorry - i need to reject 'PARAVIRT Options' as it can slow down the system when run in real mode. pls compile your own kernel or i'll do it for you (not a big deal so dont hesitate to ask).

    @Argonaut
    1) you'll have to wait for kde4 a bit :)
    2) ugh... seems like configuration of alsa will be required - hope that google knows the answer :)

    -------------------------------------------
    finally found some time to compile 2.6.35 kernel - works stable so far (1 hour) :)
    now userland, pull new stuff, fix documentation, ...., ...., - hopefully v08-BETA will be out in the middle of week.

    Thanks. I succeeded to compile a new kernel with PARAVIRT Options, but I am not sure whether it is really that much faster? Still experimenting.
    Maybe I have to use SCSI with VMware, because this is recommendeded and has maybe some paravirtual support, since it is called SCSI Paravirtual driver?
    Why do you recommend to better have my new kernel in a separate directory like 2.6.34-syntux? For still being able to use the old kernel?
    You can leave the PARAVIRT Options out of the official kernel, since I should now be able to help myself now ... Learning a lot with Slax Remix :) Thank You, fanthom :)!

    @Blaze89, fanthom
    Can you tell which files I have to change in order get a different startbutton icon (shamrock/clover) and the Slax-Remix Band on the left?
    I know I can research, but maybe someone can just tell me the filenames? Maybe you can also point me out to the old theme that was used with older versions of Slax Remix?
    Not to get me wrong. I really like the nice shamrock, etc. but like to customize a bit by myself :)

    The "Start" button icon name is kmenu.png
    You can find kmenu.png icons in

    Thank you Blaze89. That's exactly what I needed :)
    BTW, how did you manage to have the name "Slax Remix" with the nice "aqua/crystal effect" as a banner?
    Which program did you use for that? Gimp, Photoshop, Paint.Net?

    @fanthom
    Is it possible to put LXDE as a separate module, that one can leave away, when you mainly want to use KDE? Can I extract it myself?

    1) kernel name doesn't matter until you wont mix them up :)
    2) paravirt wont be enabled so, especially that i have removed all DEPRECATED options now. hopefully it wont cause big troubles for the users.
    3) would like to leave lxde in 002-desktop included. if you want to remove it completely from lzm module use this script:
    http://www.slax.org/forum.php?action=view&parentID=60690
    heres the list of lxde packages (with deps) which will be included in v08:
    http://pastebin.com/Hdta3MYU
    you can modify my script to remove all packages from given list - shell is a power!

    @forum
    i think it might be a problem actually - i got this output from konqueror:
    (process:25695): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_new: assertion `G_TYPE_IS_OBJECT (object_type)' failed
    KCrash: Application 'nspluginviewer' crashing...

    i presume that newer version of glib is not compatible with old konqueror. firefox works nice anyway.
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    userland for v08 is ready. i would like to remove some packages which are not necessary (in my opinion) or not maintained anymore, here's the list:
    http://pastebin.com/jMpAtgDT
    if you are using any of the above - please let me know so maybe i'll add them back.

    whole iso is 180MB only so not that bad :)

    Cheers

    Hummm...

    Does that mean that 'XKill' will disapear?!? Without 'KDE'
    it makes sense to remove 'KuickShow' but 'XKill'?! What
    is going to replace it if it disapears?...

    Thank you. Fair enough ... I can remove LXDE myself then. Is the package list for remix 07 almost the same?
    While I understand and share your motivation to keep Slax Remix core small, I am also a bit concerned that you maybe cut down too much ;)?
    I am not using them often, but some of the X11-tools, like xkill, xmodmap and tools like netwatch, etc. can be quite handy sometimes.
    Even kuickshow was nice when doing picture dia-shows, but probably there are better alternatives? Ideas are welcome :)
    Maybe you could put those packages in a separate lzm module that people can download extra?

    @Blaze89
    I guess there is probably no free alternative to do such a water effect on GIMP, etc.?
    While I could find all the other icons, I still wonder where to find the Slax Remix banner? Any hint ;)?

    @Syntux
    1. Unfortunately do not have alternative for GIMP.
    Use Wine and Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended Multilingual Portable Final.
    http://www.torrents.net/torrent/312452/Adobe-Photoshop-CS5-Extended-Multilingual-Portable-Final/
    2. Banner? Click this http://i37.tinypic.com/x0pgrr.png
    and find kmenu.png icons in
    /usr/share/crystalsvg/64x64/apps/
    /usr/share/crystalsvg/48x48/apps/
    /usr/share/crystalsvg/32x32/apps/

    APPEND initrd=/boot/initrd.lz ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw vga=791 copy2ram noauto autoexec=xconf


    what dit slax remix tried to do?
    http://pix.toile-libre.org/upload/original/1281444982.jpg

    I falled up on this message the first time when I tried to prevent compiz to autostart by following autoexec: autoexec=rm /root/.kde/Autostart/startcompiz.sh;xconf;kdm
    with nochange and cp2ram cheetcode.

    @all

    i agree with ponce, xterm is part of LXDE, the positive side is if slax user choose LXDE n KDE 3 still on the less than 200Mb (i hope)

    and if they choose KDE 4 just a matter of replacing KDE 3 with KDE 4 ( hoping not to many change in core n X libs )

    Looking forward to Bug V8 ( i'm still in remote area ), in v8 post l'll put my menu.lst (as it is very hard for me to logged to this thread) that has G4D reside in XP partition n booting Win 7 that reside as ide2 ( secondary primary partition )

    ooh stil got the change~~

    # This is a sample menu.lst file. You should make some changes to it.
    # The old install method of booting via the stage-files has been removed.
    # Please install GRLDR boot strap code to MBR with the bootlace.com
    # utility under DOS/Win9x or Linux.

    color blue/green yellow/red white/magenta white/magenta

    find --set-root /bootmgr
    chainloader /bootmgr
    savedefault --wait=2

    At the bottom of boot.ini add c:\gldr="your choice" (i think have to put /mnt/ to save *.dat properly)

    then you'l get a bootable menu of the above

    I think you can get it to boot direct to menu, will try it when i get back


    Cheers :)))))
