Dreamlinux forum needs work asap!

Filed under
Others

I noticed the article in "tuxmachines" about dreamlinux after finding it by doing a google search on "compiz".From distrowatch I found the article.I have installed dreamlinux xgl and do not know how to make the efects work.I read something on the dreamlinux forum about it but it did not make sense to me,I was going to register but the langauge barrior stoped me from doing that.I think it is a good distro but without forum help it is kind of difficult.I also noticed that nvidia released a new driver for x.I would like to make the cube work but the dreamlinux forum is not much help and I am still not real good with the command prompt(console) yet.I need some step by step help!

Dreamlinux

Dreamlinux = linux for newbies? I don't think so.
Torvalds said that he install only simple distro, so he can focus his work, the kernel development.
I think that peoples that use the pc for work or for production prefer a simple distro with great functions like dreamlinux.
I suggest everyone to try dreamlinux!! Maybe through VirtualBox, like me.

dreamlinux live cd, can`t connectto the internet

I need help, I have downloadet dreamlinux and now it will not connect to the internet. with all the other linux distros no problem, I am always automatic connected to the internet. I have Etho1, and a router, buthis should never be a problem, cause I never had a problem to connect to the internet with other linux distros. helpl. Also when I put in my usb mem stick, it will not mount it at all, leaves it unmounted as much as i click on mount, it don`t helps, also no problem with other linux distros. Then i have no soundat all, so actually nothing is working, why?
thanks for your help.

dreamlinux, internet

Well, it's been so long since I messed with it I may not remember specifics. But it may not have recognized your net card. What make and model ethernet chip do you have? (Do you have more than one installed?)

type in a terminal: /sbin/lsmod and see if you see the module for your card listed if you know it. If you do know it and you don't see it, /sbin/modprobe (your_module). If you don't know it, get back to me on the above question.

If you've modprobed your module, try typing: dhcpcd eth0 and see what happens. Report back and we'll go from there.

i've got a NF-M2S abit micro atx mobo

srlinuxx, thank you for your

srlinuxx, thank you for your fast response, I am finally online on dreamlinux, I have two etho cards, so it was on etho-0 anstead on etho-1, I clicked on etho 1 and on aply twice and then it was configured and am online. Thank you for you help.

now the other problem is still, I have no sound on dreamlinux, and my usb mem stick will not be mounted, who could help me with this? Thanks again.
ilanesh.

re: dreamlinux, sound

What kinda sound card/chip do you use? You say it works in other linux distros? Hopefully it's just a matter of modprobing the right module.

as far as your usb stick, you may be stuck mounting and umounting it manually. Hopefully there's support in the dreamlinux kernel for it. Try mkdir /mnt/sda and then mount -t auto /dev/sda /mnt/sda and see what it says.

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?

I am not good in

I am not good in commandlines, I don`t no how and where to do this? I need everything automatic but not to break my head how and where to do all this things, this is not good. I don`t no how to do root also on this dream linux, is there not an easier way? without all those comman lines? this is th most difficult and confusing thing to do.
thanks for your help.
ilanesh.

re: commandline

It looks like you may be able to get away with no commandline for sound. If your sound doesn't work upon boot, it says you can use the Alsa Config utility under your home directory/utilities. So give that a go and see what happens.

If you ever want to poke around the commandline, looks like Dreamlinux utilitizes the sudo philosophy. So, any command you want to issue you can just stick the word sudo in-front of. You'd input this into a terminal and there's a terminal entry in the menu. Or to su to root, one can: sudo su Or you could set up a root password so that the traditional su would work.

About the usb stick, it says if you click on the Computer icon on the desktop, it should show you all the partitions detected. If you right click on the device, you should have the option to mount (and then unmount) it. Most usb sticks get detected as sda or sdaX. Try that and see how it goes.

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?

re: dreamlinux

Google for xgl hotkeys and you should find several listings of them. I don't recall them right off-hand cuz I only use xgl when it comes on a distro I'm testing. I can't use it all the time, it gives me a headache. I think to move the cube it's press: control and alt and either drag it with your mouse or control and alt and left/right arrows.

As far as the new nvidia drivers, just run the NVIDIA installer and reboot (or restart X). That should be sufficient. I don't think there's any special voodoo there. (I'm also not sure it'd be much of a benefit to update them unless your upgrading Xorg to 7.1.)

Thanks srlinuxx.I must have

Thanks srlinuxx.I must have a different problem because the cube is not there or is that also toggled with hot keys.For the most part there install directions are helpful.I know nothing of compiz,however there is quite alot compiz forums.

FATHOM releases Crystallon

  • FATHOM releases Crystallon, an open-source software for lattice-based design
    Lattice structures are integral to 3D printed designs, and Aaron Porterfield, an industrial designer at additive manufacturing service bureau FATHOM, has developed Crystallon, an open source project for shaping them into structures.
  • FATHOM Introduces Open Source Software Project for Generating 3D Lattice Structures
    California-based FATHOM, which expanded its on-site managed services and announced important partnerships with Stratasys and Desktop Metal last year, is introducing a fascinating new open source project called Crystallon, which uses Rhino and Grasshopper3D to create lattice structures. FATHOM industrial designer Aaron Porterfield, also an Instructables member, developed the project as an alternative to designing lattices with commercially available software. He joined the company’s design and engineering team three years ago, and is often a featured speaker for its Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) Training Program – and as the project developer, who better to explain the Crystallon project?

Kernel and Graphics: Machine Learning, Mesa, Wayland/Mir, AMDGPU

  • AI-Powered / Machine Learning Linux Performance Tuning Is Now A Thing
    A year and a half ago I wrote about a start-up working on dynamically-tuned, self-optimizing Linux servers. That company is now known as Concertio and they just launched their "AI powered" toolkit for IT administrators and performance engineers to optimize their server performance. Concertio Optimizer Studio is their product making use of machine learning that aims to optimize Linux systems with Intel CPUs for peak performance by scoping out the impact of hundreds of different tunables for trying to deliver an optimal configuration package for that workload on that hardware.
  • Pengutronix Gets Open-Source 3D Working On MX8M/GC7000 Hardware
    We've known that Pengutronix developers had been working on i.MX8M / GC7000 graphics support within their Etnaviv open-source driver stack from initial patches posted in January. Those patches back at the start of the year were for the DRM kernel driver, but it turns out they have already got basic 3D acceleration working.
  • SDL Now Disables Mir By Default In Favor Of Wayland Compatibility
    With Mir focusing on Wayland compatibility now, toolkits and other software making direct use of Mir's APIs can begin making use of any existing Wayland back-end instead. GTK4 drops the Mir back-end since the same can be achieved with the Wayland compatibility and now SDL is now making a similar move.
  • Mesa 18.1 Receives OpenGL 3.1 With ARB_compatibility For Gallium3D Drivers
    Going back to last October, Marek of AMD's open-source driver team has been working on ARB_compatibility support for Mesa with a focus on RadeonSI/Gallium3D. Today that work was finally merged. The ARB_compatibility support allows use of deprecated/removed features of OpenGL by newer versions of the specification. ARB_compatibility is particularly useful for OpenGL workstation users where there are many applications notorious for relying upon compatibility contexts / deprecated GL functionality. But ARB_compatibility is also used by a handful of Linux games too.
  • AMDGPU In Linux 4.17 Exposes WattMan Features, GPU Voltage/Power Via Hwmon
    AMD's Alex Deucher today sent in the first pull request to DRM-Next of AMDGPU (and Radeon) DRM driver feature material that will in turn be merged with the Linux 4.17 kernel down the road. There's some fun features for AMDGPU users coming with this next kernel! First up, Linux is finally getting some WattMan-like functionality after it's been available via the Windows Radeon Software driver since 2016. WattMan allows for more fine-tuning of GPU clocks, voltages, and more for trying to maximize the power efficiency. See the aforelinked article for details but currently without any GUI panel for tweaking all of the driver tunables, this WattMan-like support needs to be toggled from the command-line.
