Have you tried Three-Headed Dog? It uses the same kernel as Slacko.

otropogo, We haven't tested the update with that module and these are only the updates we tested.

Can you provide a link to that module so people might be able to test it. Thanks.


I used a link provided by Tempestuous.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=453853#453853

The one-page thread linked below includes the above download link, a necessary tip on installation (for the untrained), as well as my preliminary results.


http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=71860

Unfortunately, on my last attempt, I wasn't able to duplicate these results.

This might be due to the fact that this time I only tested the 3TB drive (albeit reformatted into a 2TB ntfs partition). My previous (somewhat) successful tests (no hot-plugging, but able to write to disk) were with a USB3 card reader and a 500GB USB3 drive. IIRC, the 3TB drive failed to appear at all when I first tested it.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=72336

As noted above, in lupu528 Pmount refuses to mount the 3TB drive even on USB2 ports, except in read-only mode, complaining about a problem with the ntfs filesystem. However, Slacko_5.29.6 reports no such problems and can write to the drive.

As noted in the previous post, lupu528_K.307 also supports writes to the 3TB drive on both USB3 and USB2 ports without complaints, but strangely cannot detect either my ethernet connection or my wireless modem. This is the first time I've encountered any internet auto-detection problem with any Puppy since 2.13 retro (and then it was only an issue of replacing a modem module - 5.28_K3.01 offers me no method of connecting on any of its three connection wizards).

Here is an updated iso of Lucid 5.2.8. It contains Instant Update 002, which is a cumulative update, so no updates are needed, just the iso. Smokey01 suggested this. It works for me so far. Thanks. I will also make one with the upgraded multimedia component.

goutam, Since your computer has 256MB ram, I believe you would be better off with Slacko or Wary. The reason for that is that Lucid is too large to load into 256MB ram. Lucid would work better if you made a frugal or full but Slacko or Wary would work better from the Live CD. Wary is possibly better on an older cpu such as yours.
Slacko -> http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=72806
Wary -> http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02543
Check here for drivers -> http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/index.php?f=48

Add: I have posted a version several messages below that should load into ram on your 256MB ram computer.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Can anyone test this please? The Instant Update has already been tested--this is just a sanity check to make sure the remaster went OK. Remaster, btw, went incredibly smoothly because of rerwin's tweaks to the Menu -> Setup -> Remaster Puppy Live CD script.

Here is an updated iso of Lucid 5.2.8. It contains Instant Update 002, which is a cumulative update, so no updates are needed, just the iso. Smokey01 suggested this. It works for me so far. Thanks.

Hi,

I have a Micromax Usb modem MMX310g.
Please let me know that what dot pet package should I install to connet the modem to the internet.
Thanks,
Goutam.

What type modem? Wireless or wired?
First bootup Puppy 5.2.8 with the USB modem not plugged in.
Then, after Puppy is fully booted and running, plug in the USB modem and see if it is detected and setup.
Also try setting it up by using the menu->setup->Internet connection wizard.
What happens?

otropogo, Please try this: click the play icon on the desktop to open gnome-mplayer and choose Edit -> Preferences, then click the drop down menu for Video Output and choose x11, instead of xv. The update made the change from x11 to xv because DVD menus do not display properly in x11, so it is kind of a no win situation.


Yes. That did the trick. Video is back. Thanks

The different numbering is because Three-Headed Dog is not the successor to Lucid 5.2.8. Rather it is an experiment, using a newer kernel. That is why it is luci instead of lupu, so it doesn't accidentally overwrite someone's Lucid. I also put it into Puppy Derivatives for that reason. (That is not to say that anything is wrong with it--I use it myself.) I will pm you when I need a tester for the Three-Headed Dog update Wink


Will also help in testing when you get it in 3HD

Ah ha!Yes that's the one. Got me (and a bunch of others) really confused.
Wiped the lot and reinstalled - seems to work now. Think there was a hardware issue too so changed the cpu for safety. Thanks for your swiftness, though - appreciated.


Sage, I am sorry that happened. I will put a message in bold red with the update.

This update is not for luci-001 Three-Headed Dog.
