I`d love a dial up modem like gnome-ppp, it lets me turn of the noise!.
Requires wvdial 1.53.
A great distro- can be the basis for anything!

Yes, I've put it on my 'to do' list for the next version.

Todd, thanks for the suggestion of renaming BarelyPup (I keep thinking of 'BarleyCup' Laughing), but I see "lite" as referring to a usable but very lean Puppy. I think I'll stick to BarelyPup for the time being - it is after all both distinctive and accurate - you need to add some apps to be able to do something useful with it Wink

Subject description: Can't Unmount CD Drive

Like so many others I'm having fun with BarelyPup. I have added some necessary PupGets and other stuff (a browser, a word processor) and remastered, I think, according to directions.
One problem: The CD player doesn't release like a normal puppy, and I can't unmount it with MUT. Did I do something wrong in the remastering? What?
Thanks for your help.
Todd

I'm having so much fun with this version on my laptop, I just may have to dump 2.11 on the desktop box and rebuild anew with BarelyPup.

We all have our personal preferences, however this wonderful version "is what it is" - nothing more, nothing less. It's Paul's benevolent deconstruction of Barry's masterpiece and is the perfect middle ground between command-line-only and full-blown distros. It's spartan package list is made more comfortable with a clean and lean GUI.

Please lets not demand it be made into something it clearly was not meant to be, nor should be.

Again, many thanks, Paul. Well done!

This is just great, been waiting for a stripped down version like thisto add just what I want, Im sure a lot of ppl will be pleased with this.

Would be great if there was a one with just icewm as the wm or fluxbox or xcfe.

Nope, no browser at all - this is to keep the size to an absolute minimum. Consider BarelyPup an empty graphical framework to be filled with the applications you want Smile

BarelyPup is meant to be populated by running 'Puppy package manager' only. Why not make the first installed package the browser of your choice - then you can take it from there Wink

BTW, I was going to add the updated PETget, but I just read this comment from Barry
Quote:
If you want to backport PETget to an older version of Puppy, be sure to get the PET-Tools also (see the PET web page. These tools are in Puppy 2.14a). There may be other incompatibilities.... yes, probably are."

So it looks like we'll have to stick to the slower version in 2.13.

Very Happy

This seems the ideal carrier for something like meaty . . .
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/MeatyInfo

Strong stable base with grooming (window manager, browser, programs) added according to preference

have added your info to wiki news and puppy version

What I would suggest is a simple wizard or web installer (this might even be pupget - which is sped up in 2.14)
something like this which is just html (remove "" at top and bottom of code and rename index.html and call from browser - I assume you are using one?)

You seem to be inspiring people. Good news.

So? You prude Razz Nah this will be quite useful for me, I'm probably going to make a wine optimized puppy, I've had this idea for quite some time and now that someone wants it, it's inspiring Wink

Only complaints are the broken link to Murga's old addy for adding programs and the torturously slow PETget package manager, neither of which are yours to own.

Which was the broken link? Let me know and I'll fix it. Wink
Yes, I forgot about Barry's PETget update. I'll include it.
