5.1 amd64 K43U: Where is scrotwm now, eh?

Hi,

I was looking for updated info on my fav wm, scrotwm but heck I can't find any now. What? spectrwm? Uh?

Oh. If you read this conversation, you'll finally know that scrotwm has changed its name to spectrwm. That's why. Well changes are gradual so some reference to scrotwm is still there. Nice name. As long as it perform better each time it's updated, I will be happy. Later

5.1 amd64 K43U: Following -current using snapshot, updated to radeon 6.14.3

Hi,

First of all, now my K43U machine is using 1366x768 display and no more slow scrolling! Hurrah! I LOVE OPENBSD! At last! The display is more crisp. If you're using AMD e-450 with Radeon HD 6300 graphic, now is your time to rejoice!

My current uname -a is:

OpenBSD karlap.vampire.my 5.1 GENERIC.MP#207 amd64

I've successfully installed OpenBSD -current snapshot.

Why I want to follow -current?
1) Because -current have the updated radeon 6.14.3 driver which can detect and use Radeon HD 6320 properly.
2) Because I want to use -current.
3) Because scrotwm is the newest version.
4) Because of the Radeon HD6320 driver... heh.

If you have more or less the same reason as me, read on. Before I forget, many thanks to http://blather.michaelwlucas.com/archives/543 for providing incredibly informative tips on updating to snapshot.

Updating my 5.0 to 5.1 (-current):
I used http://ftp.OpenBSD.org/pub/OpenBSD/snapshots/amd64 for the site to update my machine.

1) Copy bsd* and *.tgz files to local folder. (eg: /mnt/snapshots/amd64/)
2) Login to machine without X. cd to the folder you downloaded the files above. In shell, type this command:
$ sudo cp bsd.rd /
$ sudo sudo sysmerge -s etc51.tgz -x xetc51.tgz


3) Reboot the machine, after rebooted, bypass autoloading bootfile and choose:
boot> boot bsd.rd

4) bsd.rd will booted and choose (U)pgrade, then choose the folder you saved all the files for updating (eg: /mnt/snapshots/amd64/)
5) let it update. Remember that this is only the base OpenBSD, not all the third-party packages. After it's done, reboot.
6) I still have problem using pkg_add via proxy so I downloaded all the updated packages manually and place it in a specific folder (eg: /mnt/snapshots/packages/)
7) Now to update packages. Still without X and in shell, type:
$ export PKG_PATH=/mnt/snapshots/packages/
$ sudo pkg_add -vui


8) Make sure you read the verbose output to find out any missing dependencies.

Updating xf86-video-ati to 6.14.3 (hurrah!)
1) Download http://ftp.x.org/pub/individual/driver/xf86-video-ati-6.14.3.tar.gz
2) tar -zxvf the file
3) cd to the folder, and type this commands:
$ sh ./configure --prefix=/usr/X11R6 --sysconfdir=/etc --mandir=/usr/X11R6/man --with-xorg-module-dir=/usr/X11R6/lib/modules --disable-kms
$ sudo make
$ sudo make install


4) Now to test, vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change:
Section "Device"
Driver "vesa"


to

Driver "radeon"

5) reboot to test.

So far the machine is running like a charm. Nice display. Nice widescreen resolution. Oh, BTW. This is more updated scrotwm. YEAH!

There's a few remaining issue though:
1) Annoying ultra-sensitive touchpad (I use usb mouse most of the time).
2) xv with MPlayer is not working.
3) gnome-mplayer + Thunderbird + youtube issue (can use HTML5 WebM no problem though).

And I'm figuring out ways to use the Fn key combination as intended by the label (on/off WiFi, enable/disable touchpad, mute/unmute | vol up/down mixer etc). I'll post updates on any new findings. Now my K43U is back as my primary work machine. Yeah!

5.0 amd64 K43U: Upgrading to -current. Soon.

Heyya,

I'm currently preparing my system (mostly preparing myself) to get my K43U upgrading to -current. Most probably using snapshot installation. Information are lacking but I'm more or less getting to it. I will post anything on it later.
