So, it seems that all of these packages are already installed on system:
mesa-libgl, ati-dri, xf86-video-ati
lsmod output shows that radeon driver is loaded
So dri should be already enabled

You can check if there are some errors or warnings in /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

Sim,

What is the logic behind what is in alpha_12.sfs and
what goes in extra_12.sfs?


*EDIT*
Now also on 12 with modified init for grub iso-scan. Sim can I ask you to tell
me if you ever change init script?

Modified for taking savefile with file prefix alpha12

and a whole lot of custom mods since I was resquashing sfs anyway

what is this for in .bashrc?

Code: Select all

export GTK2_RC_FILES="$HOME/.gtkrc-2.0"


Thanks marv, now only iwldvm in modules

Touchpad working perfectly here with scroll

using syndaemon -t -k -i 2 -d & in .start
to disable trackpad when typing, works mostly
anyone try any other trick?

missing geany but it should not be in devel_12.sfs right?

Sim, is devel_12.sfs needed when building from AUR?

Gonna makesfs geany then
.

Packages are divided into groups:
alpha_12.sfs contains core group (only what's needed for system to boot and have working pacman),
xorg and extra groups become extra_12.sfs


what is this for in .bashrc?

Code: Select all

export GTK2_RC_FILES="$HOME/.gtkrc-2.0"


That is added for Qt applications to have same look as those that use Gtk.

devel_12.sfs is needed, because it has static libraries and headers from core group.

Next version will have spacefm compiled with gtk2, because with gtk 3.10 menu icons are removed, logo in about dialog is missing and it has bug that causes program's crash when changing wallpaper if spacefm is used to manage desktop (not by default).

Hi simargl et al,
Late to the party but happy to report that V12 works marvelously out of the box here. Thanks simargl :D . As always, I had to append iwldvm to modules line in /etc/rc.conf for my wifi to work (Thanks marv, for that input). I am also able to change wallpaper without any hitch after installing mint-looks as outlined by simargl in the tutorials section. Man, I love the spacefm-lxpanel-mint looks setup. Also, all my sfs-files from V11 work flawlessly in V12 too.
Cheers.

As promised, now that abiword is on board, I installed (Grub4Dos frugal on CF card in ide adaptor) to one of the Pentium M intel i2200 pro wireless ALPS touchpad laptops.
As previously, for the intel 2200 pro wireless to work with wpa encryption, lib80211_crypt_ccmp must be loaded as the kernel doesn't recognize these wireless cards as wpa capable whereas they are. Add lib80211_crypt_ccmp to the modules line in /etc/rc.conf.
THAT'S IT. Video correct, Sound correct, Touchpad with scrolling perfect, gnome-mplayer plays dvds ok. 1.5% CPU use and 89Mb memory use reported by Lxtask while sitting here idling with opera open. Not much else to say :D

"Invalid output from pipe-menu "openbox-menu" "
I get this several times now usually after installing some apps it probably has something to do with adding new programs to menu?
I tried running it from cli

[root@alphaos ~]# openbox-menu

** (openbox-menu:1315): WARNING **: Cannot create menu, check if the .menu file is correct
menu.xml is there in /root/.config/openbox (although I believe you have another menu somewhere for applications pipe?)

Solution to force menu reloading is to delete directory $HOME/.cache and file /tmp/.menu-cached-:0-root

I wanted to automate this process with a simple script,

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

openbox-menu

echo $?

if [ $? -eq 1 ]; then
  rm -r $HOME/.cache
  rm /tmp/.menu-cached-*
  openbox-menu
fi


Problem is that openbox-menu returns 0, even when it fails to write the xml menu for openbox.

What about

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh

openbox-menu | grep -q "Cannot create menu" 

echo $?

if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
  rm -r $HOME/.cache
  rm /tmp/.menu-cached-*
  openbox-menu
fi
