Plop Linux / Re: New Plop 20.1 scroll not work
« Last post by Elmar on October 19, 2020, 12:52:00 PM »
I have bad news. The support for scrolling in the framebuffer mode has been removed. That hurts.

Maybe it comes back in the future.

I see. Scrolling doesn't work in the framebuffer mode. It has to do with the kernel.

I update the kernel and check the framebuffer configuration settings.

Hi Elmar,
thank you for answering. :)
I think i need to be more precise:
I use the live system small edition. This is console only. When it has bootet, and i type "dmesg" for example, then i can't scroll up.
The same for other commands like smartctl for example.
Is this working in your setup?

Hello,

here it works, in the console and terminal.

Where exactly doesn't it work?

Plop Linux / New Plop 20.1 scroll not work
« Last post by The_Raven on October 16, 2020, 15:17:10 PM »
Hello

I have installed the new plop 20.1. So far so good, only one little problem:
Scrolling up and down with "shift pageUP/pageDOWN" is not working.

Any idea how to enable scroll?  :D

Boot Managers / plop Boot manager with 1.44Mb floppy: Not working
« Last post by George on October 04, 2020, 12:03:07 PM »
I am trying Plop with my old PC with Asus SiS630E motherboard ( P3 850MHz). THough the PC started with the floppy and displayed a full row of dots ...began second row of dots ( 10-12 of them in the second row). THen it is stuck there. FDD light was on always, I have waited for 10mts...but no change. Steps that I have follwed are the following.

1. Downloaded the latest plpbt_5.0.15
2. Formatted the floppy disk in FAT16.
3) imaged the floppy disk (1.44mb) with linux (RHEL)'dd' utility ("dd if=plpbt.img of=/dev/fd0")
4) Rebooted the PC with booting sequence set to floppy-disk

   It started booting from the floppy....gave me a row and quarter full of dots ("......."); then got stuck   

   Could someone guide me on how to proceed?


Another update: ('plpbtin.img')
   With some googling, I have even tried imaging 'plpbtin.img'(instead of 'plpbt.img') on the floppy. Now it has  moved one more step (beyond 'dots') and got a gray-screen with 'flat' written on mid-left of the screen. But it is stuck there. FDD light is always glowing! Looks like a bug.

Resolved!!!:
> I was using a Dell made USB keyboard. It was not handled by the PLOP. Changed the keyboard to my old PS2 one. All is well now. Now, I need to try te same for plpbt.img also. Will update after that.

> THis initial issue ( stuck at 'dots') were also due to the fact that USB device ( either Keyboard or Mass storage) plugged into the USB port. With an empty USB port , plop works fine.

  It may be a good idea to capture it in guidelines.

HFS+ Rescue / Re: All recovered files seem corrupt
« Last post by wout on September 30, 2020, 22:55:51 PM »
Yep, I did. The command for step 3 was:
# ./hfsprescue_x64 -s3 /dev/sdb -o 1437184  -d '/mnt/plek/'

and my latest single-file attempt went like this:
# ./hfsprescue --one-file /dev/sdb 2664 -o 1437184 -d /mnt/plek --vh-file /mnt/plek/VolumeHeader --eof-file /mnt/plek/restored/ExtentsOverflowFile

.. where I thought I'd "hardcode" as much as possible.

Thanks again!

Did you use -o 1437184 with the per-file restore too?

Thanks for your message, Elmar.

After finding the volume header, the initial command was:
# ./hfsprescue_x64 -s1 /dev/sdb -o 1437184 -d /mnt/plek

EDIT - maybe I should post the results of step 1, as well:
