Just tested a fresh boot, and to be sure manually removed existing /dev/sd*. The device node for my stick appeared as it should.

Lsusb didn't show a thing, but it seems not to be a bug:

I'll add that udev rule for testing.

edit: Confirmed, lsusb works with one added rule.

Hi Robert!

Yes, the sound works just fine in tinycore 2.8.1. It also works just fine in tinycore 2.9rc1 which I'm running right now.

Have fun continuing your excellent work,
meo

Hi curaga,

here are some urls of the log files I tried to collect. Too big so I broke into two parts. info only. The error log only had a few bytes of complaints about wanting to change the command syntax in a later release. So not included.

http://pastebin.ca/1795391

http://pastebin.ca/1795392

Not sure I did everything properly here.
What commands should I run before doing the grep to extract the files. I did alsamixer only.

Best regards

Thanks sci_fi. Your logs were very useful.

Seems the alsa startup script somehow did not reload udev rules. Can you post the following:
- cat /usr/local/tce.installed/alsa
- ls -l /etc/udev/rules.d

Also continuing to see segfaults ala busybody and rebuildfstab during boot. These problems did not occur in rc1 but are present in both rc2 and rc3.


I am also getting these errors, but only if I include wireless_tools in the boot?
Have you tried identifying which extension is triggering these errors on your system?

Hi gerald_clark,

I have not tried to isolate the problems to a specific extension. I will try booting wo wireless tools to see if I can duplicate your results.

Follow up.

I removed wireless_tools.tcz and wireless-2.6.29.1-tinycore.tcz from my boot up. The segfaults and alsa problems still occurred.

Looks like your alsa.tcz is the one from Oct 2009 - before the -config split and the two updates for supporting the new udev. Are you perhaps using a mirror?

Here's the md5sum of the latest alsa.tcz:
75af7f641bac0be51dd53b6ac2aa7c14  alsa.tcz

If the app updater is reporting an older one as the latest, there's something amiss here.

Thanks for the tip. I will check again and respond.

Also, fwiw I have gotten a warning all the way back to rc1 during extension loading as follows:

touch: usr/local/tce.installed/libusb: permission denied.
libusb is present belonging to tc staff rw  r r
Never seemed to cause a problem so I did not mention before.

Perhaps not important.

I will now double check alsa.

Hi Curaga,

When I do Appsaudit->Update->Check for updates the return is only that I need to upgrade firefox. Nothing else is mentioned.

The checksum does not match the checksum I have on alsa-config.tcz.md5 which is the only alsa related checksum in my optional older.

I will now uninstall alsa and reboot and reinstall.

Hi curaga,

Re-installing alsa on rc3 works. Skype and audio works.
Do check out appsaudit because it certainly gave me no indication that I was not current. Wonder what else may be old.

This did not help all the segfaults, however. Still, one more down.

Thanks,

sci_fi

Code: [Select]
I have problems with chromium. Chromium won't load web pages, it reports
[code]
[2458:2463:677390998:ERROR:base/shared_memory_posix.cc(192)] Creating shared memory in /dev/shm/org.chromium.o3QTBj failed: No such file or directory
There are about 4 such lines, all same but with the number stuff different.

tc2.8.1 has no problem.

Also when booting, when the extensions are loaded I get a whole string of repeated messages, something about
Code: [Select]
/init.d/rcS (sp?) line 415: usleep: Text file busy
I haven't reproduced it exactly, but from memory.[/code]

On rc3, /dev/shm is mounted tmpfs as it should, and is world writable. If "touch /dev/shm/test" works as user tc, this is a chromium bug, as you can clearly use the area with user privileges then.
