Good point, greengeek.
I think the univarsal installer is the root who confuses newcommers.
The 431JP returns 2012 has Frugalinstaller for this reason.
The bootflash is a bit better than the univarsal installer.

The frugalinstaller is simple and easy. The bootflash is more and the univarsal installer is the most sophisticated and confusing.
Therefore, the 431JP2012 has 3 installers... Sad

Thanks ilan, I think I will have to start using Grub4Dos as several people have now suggested it.

However, I am concerned that many newcomers may still try to use the universal installers and get into the same problems I did - then walk away from Puppy. maybe all we need is a good, easy tutorial that shows people like me how to use Grub4Dos just for one specific function - how to make a bootable usb stick containing a recent version of Puppy, so that we can leave our Windows HDD installation untouched. That way we can boot from HDD if we need windows, or put the usb stick in if we want to use Puppy.

Would you have time to list the steps you would use to create such a usb stick? (eg: which step comes first - Gparted, or syslinux, or fdisk or cfdisk or Grub4Dos???). It seems easy for people who have worked on such problems for weeks and months and developed their own methods, but not so clear for newcomers who are trying to follow basic steps.

I would like to find a foolproof method that works with a typical brand new FAT32 stick straight off the shop shelf.

Many thanks if you have time to list your method.

Did you run the Grub4Dos bootloader config?

No, I didn't try that. Is it necessary to use Grub or Grub4Dos for a usb boot? I thought that was only for HDD install?

Each of the flash installers has its own issues. After struggling with the installers for many months, I discovered that Grub4Dos worked, for me, all the time (with 5.2.x).

mikeslr, Nightingale ran for me but "Failed to load Shoutcast streams" in both 3HD and LupuPlus. There must be something we are overlooking.

People can of course go directly to shoutcast.com, but that is just one feature of Nightingale.

Flashvideoreplacer

Earthray found this. It replaces flashplayer with gnome-mplayer (or other player at your choice). Anyone having trouble with youtube videos might want to try it. It is working for me.

Plus, many youtube videos will now automatically play with html5 if flashplayer is not installed. Flashvideoreplacer has an option to prefer html5.

thanks for that description and links on how to get TV going.
I have not tested it but would want to when I feel for an "adventure"

I have Hauppauge 900 dongle. We have PAL instead of the NTFS thing


Shouldn't be a problem as long as your dongle supports it. There a quite a few startup files included in the .pet package, many of them European and Australian, simply choose one that's appropriate for your area. Good luck!

Could it be that reusing an old save file somehow screwed up
the Simple Network something? Now I have to connect each morning
and before the upgrade to 005 from 004 it did connect to internet automatically. Nothing to worry about I guess. Just a slight inconveniance.

Well, this is what it is suppose to be used for.

The player can be used to play media on websites from your browser when used with Gecko Mediaplayer and is the modern replacement for the mplayerplug-in application.

Seems every website I go to wants to use Flashplayer.
I guess it depends on what you are trying to play.
This is what Firefox wants to use Geco-mediaplayer for.

Gnome-Mplayer 1.0.6 Lucid

Update to 1.0.6 Gnome-Mplayer - Any problems? It plays CD's now, that is the only noticeable change - it does not include gecko-mediaplayer 1.0.6, which I am thinking is not even relevant - has anyone ever actually used gecko-mediaplayer to play any media?
