Big resolution videos doesn't display on OP.


Never used YouTubu player, may try.


Gksudo doesn't work on Slackware, gksu does.


Maybe use:


gksu xdg-open /usr/share/applications/_android_i_don't_know_the_name.desktop
The commands are exceuted from some script inside the pnd.
I did try the pnd tool to extract the pnd, and then I located the .sh file and changed gksudo to gksu, and saved the pnd again.


But the next line after the gksu is a line starting with sudo, and now the log shows that it fail there as well.


Here is the log after running the modified pnd, followed by the run_gingerbread.sh script from within the pnd (edited version):

Replace the other sudo with gksu.

You can also edit /etc/sudoers but i won't recommend it as if you upgrade the distro, you'll have to redo that.

Thanks for your patience so far

I have now set my user in the sudoers file, like this

root, my_username,  ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL

But it still asks for the password when I run the pnd, and the log shows that sudo fails due to password requirements.

So I followed your advice and replaced the sudo command with gksu (removing the -n option from that line as well, since gksu did not accept that option)

Now it first pops up asking for a password, it accepts it and a while later a message box shows:

Failed to run ./pandora/run_gingerbread.sh as user root.

Failed to communicate with gksu-run-helper.

Received:

gksu: waiting

While expecting:

gksu: waiting

log looks ok until after this line:

exec gksu ./pandora/run_gingerbread.sh

then it shows

[FAILED] -- starting the application (pandora/run_gingerbread.sh)  ---

Maybe you'll have to reset /etc/sudoers permissions:

  chmod 0440 /etc/sudoers
  chown 0.0 /etc/sudoers

Thanks, that worked for the permission part, now the script continues past the gksu stuff.

Now what happens is that it does quit xfce and some text are displayed on the console very briefly (to short to read anything) and then it will restart the xfce desktop again.

Here is the log, its a bit longer now

Well, i can't tell :/.

Maybe lauch it, don't type anything, so the pnd will stay mounted, then go in /mnt/utmp/android-whatever and try to check what could be launched manually to get some output.

Hey, Linux-SWAT, do you get many issues running PNDs on SL4P?

See here (and the next few posts) for my issues trying to run Dune Dynasty:

http://boards.openpandora.org/index.php/topic/12687-dune-dynasty-classic-dune-2-modern-controls/?p=239724

I also found that I had to manually grab and symlink SuperZaxxon's version of libmikmod to get The Ur-Quan Masters to run.

Where it's a missing library (or wrong version of the library), it's not too hard to fix, but I don't know why Dune Dynasty has all those segfault errors.

What is the exact command you typed for Ur-Quan plz ? I will include it by default when building releases.

Well i don't know neither.

With Cannonball, i removed the /lib inside the pnd, and it worked.

The EGL error is strange, i wonder which SL4P version you are running.

Glad you could make it.

The Linux knowledge you will acquire with Slackware is useful on any other Linux distro, but also any other UNIX, like *BSD, Solaris etc.

Hi have anyone tried to compile IXDream the Dreamcast Emulator for Slackware?

Tried a bit, it runs pretty well at around 40~50 fps.

Finished Shenmue, Crazy taxi.

That was a good Joke,you had me ;)

Today bought i SD Card for a fixed Slackware installation.
This Evening install i latest Slackware and try to Compile IXDream.
Maybe IXDream is better than NullDC?
I will try that with Linuxbochs GL Lib too ;)
