1. "Sylvander, That is splendid. Could you give instructions please?"
(a)
See this post.
And...
How to prevent the spurious warning as a pupsave installation of Puppy boots, that the previous shut-down was improper.

2. "Perhaps you could suggest these enhancements to 2byte."
Already DONE.

Could not doing this be causing the problem with using Pmusic 2.2.1 in the multimedia update?


Good point Bigpup, but the multimedia update deleted /root/.pmusic. Even though I have withdrawn the multimedia update and the multimedia ISO I will update the Super Multimedia upgrade in a bit.

I suppose it isn't possible to hot-restore also, huh?
Or choose a pupsave to restore at shut-down/reboot?
"Pupsave Hot Restore"?

BTW, If you used the lupu-528.002.iso it was not necessary to install the Instant Update 002 pet, but it did no harm since the pet was already present int he ISO.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The GetFlash script has been inoperative for two days because, I believe, Adobe must have moved the location of the flashplayer binary. 01micko has fixed it quickly.

1. Just now updated Lupu-526 to Lupu-528.002, and that looked GOOD. Very Happy
No problems apparent.

2. Then installed Instant_Update-Lucid528-002.pet, and that is looking good also. Very Happy
Can't see anything amiss.

3. So far tried:
(a) Generally taking a look around in the menus, using Firefox, Xfe, Firewall Status, Clipboard, speaker icon->Retrovol, Alsamixer, Gnome Alsamixer.

(b) Used "Pupsave Hot Backup" to save a backup to a folder in an ext3 partition in my 1TB [USB2 connected] external HDD.
I LOVE this program! Cool
I suppose it isn't possible to hot-restore also, huh?
Or choose a pupsave to restore at shut-down/reboot?
"Pupsave Hot Restore"?

(c) Successfully used "GNOME MPlayer" to play various mkv, mp4, mov files.
"Just works". Very Happy

4. Will report back if I see anything amiss.
No report back means all's going well; haven't found any problems.

5. One of the reasons [the main reason?] I use this as my number-1 OS is...
I'm able to have this Puppy treat my pupsave on an internal HDD as if it's a pupsave on a Flash Drive.

I have confirmed an additional anomaly in Puppy528M

528M has been withdrawn. It was actually never released--it was a test vehicle.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
elcurita, Perhaps you can test Lucid 5.2.8 without the multimedia upgrade, which has been withdrawn in any event. If you proceed with that, it would be useful to test the lupu-528.iso on its own (that was the release of AUG 7 2011) and then add the Instant_Update for Lucid 528-002. Those are both official releases. If you then wished to continue, you could test the lupu-528-002.iso which is currently in testing. Thank you.

Lupu-528.iso and the Instant_Upgrade-Lucid528-002 are both in the first message of this thread. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=70855

Lupu-528-002.iso is at the address in the first part of this message.

Nope. Same behavior. on the 002M ISO live media system.

Change. I am withdrawing the Multimedia ISO (which hasn't been released) and the Instant Update for Multimedia. One reason is to simplify--two options were one too many. Plus there were a couple of problems reported with the Multimedia components, that were not problems with the regular update and ISO. So now there is only the regular update and ISO (to be released soon). if you have been using the Super Multimedia Upgrade there should be no problems in continuing to use it--after the udpated ISO is released I will revisit making an updated Multimedia Upgrade. Thanks for your help with the testing.

Here is the current version of the Updated ISO.
http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/lupu-528.002.iso
fa51ceceba878461f013afd6dbe4b915

The only change from previous is that the gnome-mplayer %U glitch is fixed.

Possible Issue: If you lose video after installing the Update, please click the play icon on the desktop to open gnome-mplayer, then choose Edit -> Preferences, click the drop-down Video Output menu, and change to x11 (from xv). This is a no-win situation because DVD menus do not work well in x11. The reason for using xv video as default is that all sources agree that it is higher quality, plus the DVD menus work with it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Info: There is currently, since yesterday, a problem with the automatic Flashplayer installers. Evidently Adobe moved the location of the flashplayer binary. 01micko maintains the GetFlash script and he knows about this.

Before jumping to that concluson, Iff you PM me with testing to perform for each of these 2 versions of Lupu528-002M (the complete one and the updated one), I will test them for you and report. (just recommend steps for me to follow for you)

Remember, these 2 live media systems have not been save-session rebooted, as of yet. But, for SAMBA (now installed and tested on each), Seamonkey, and JAVA apps, all seem fine.

Hope this helps

2. Tried Pupsave Hot Backup and it appeared to work just fine.
What a great addition!
Any detail available on its operation?
I liked the way I was able to make a folder somewhere, then use the program to save the pupsave there, which is an essential feature, and thank goodness it has been included.

Pupsave Hot Backup is written by 2byte and here is the thread. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=2135238237&t=49999

Sylvander, Thanks for testing. There are changes in the 002 update and iso that affect sound. If you do nay more testing you might try running ALSA Sound Wizard (under setup in the Menu).

Sorry, I havent rebooted yet.

But, to answer your questions:
  1. gcmartin, Does it bark when it boots up?Yes, sound works fine everywhere.
  2. What happens if you right-click an mp3 and choose Play with Gnome-mplayer?It plays. and I can drag and drop MP3s to mplayer, as well.
  3. This is a CD made from lupu-528.002M.iso?Yes, same PC as reported earlier, with those reports


The LUPU Puppy 5.28 systems now has JRE and SeaMonkey .installed via PPM PETs.

But, PMusic-V2.2.1 is not behaving in LUPU002M Live media system that has not been rebooted from a save session.

Note on PMusic in your other Puppy 5.2.8 version:
The Lupu528 where the 002M update PET was applied is NOT exhibiting this bad behavior in its PMusic. V2.2.0. This system has NOT been rebooted either.

BTW on another note, your hostname approach works, too! ("logoff in restart")

Something else I found using Pmusic(on my setup).
When playing mp3's loaded from say (/my-documents),to remove a loaded file from the playlist,using right click and selecting 'Remove from playlist (mid-button)'doesn't seem to remove it..
I found that I had to use the 'Delete source button'and then answer'yes' at both prompts.This didn't appear to cause a problem.
However,what I found very alarming was,when I loaded mp3's to the playlist from a usb portable storage device,using the above method (Delete source button)literally deletes the files from the usb drive.
