re-download and install it again

Already did that several times. Using 001, presume that's the same? Enumeration has gone crazy recently. Couldn't manage to uninstall - no routine. SiS963 S.Bridge with bog std CMedia sound chip. Looking into HW matters and will report back tomorrow.

I can no longer view mp4 or flv video with Puppy after installing multimedia update #002.

I get an audio popup, but no video, and almost all of the options are greyed out.

otropogo, I just played several kinds of mp4's and one flv with the update. Are you clicking the video file to play with gnome-mplayer? I am not sure what you mean by "an audio popup and options grayed out." How are you playing the video's?

Add: I am also able to play mp4's and flv by opening them with Firefox.

I don't know Sage. We tested for several weeks on all kinds of installs, including Full, and we didn't see any of those symptoms. It was 5.2.8 you updated of course. Could you re-download and install it again, just to see? There was plenty of free space I assume. Is there anything unusual about the computer setup? Never mind the pet I mentioned.

I can no longer view mp4 or flv video with Puppy after installing multimedia update #002.

I get an audio popup, but no video, and almost all of the options are greyed out.

When I uninstalled the update pet, I was able to play video files normally again.

OK. Have done, and petmanager handled it uneventfully.

Any idea why the usual "install"option isn't offered when clicking on the link, or what might have happened to the work of the archiver?

I looked around in the system folders, especially /tmp/, but couldn't find any trace. Yet xarchiver seemed to labour quite a while before displaying the contents the first time. Stuff getting stuck in my savefile is a constant problem, so I like to hunt it down and get rid of it as soon as possible.

Have just tried to install the multimedia update pet from page one of this thread.

When I clicked on the link, I was surprised to see no option for installing only to either download or unzip the file. I chose unzip, expecting it would then install. But after apparently downloading, and opening the xarchiver, it proved resistant to any other action. I tried, extracting and opening, but wasn't able to do anything but look at the list of contents.

If the files are sitting somewhere in my savefile, I don't know where, or what to do with them. If I start over and choose "download", what's the proper procedure then? I'm running from the Puppy 5.28 LiveCD.

Instant Update 002

Sadly, this completely screwed my FULL. Sound disappeared and refused to reload. Eventually, the network disappeared, too, and lost the tray sometimes. Everything was fine without the update. Bit of a moral there!

Would someone please describe the steps necessary to download 5.2.8 and install all necessary updates, at this point...
Just a little confused and want to begin anew.
Heartfelt thanks in advance,

calexand, It's only two steps.

1. Install Lucid 5.2.8 and install a browser. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=70855

2. Download and install either Instant Update 002 (plain or with Multimedia) and click the pet to install. The update is cumulative so nothing else is necessary. <same link for the update>

Of course step 1 depends on how you would like to install Lucid. Some people prefer to burn a CD and boot that, then Save when shutting down. Others use Puppy Universal Installer (Menu -> Setup -> Puppy Universal Installer) to create either a frugal or full install.

Thanks

Yes majorfoo, The RC was a test version. This is the final version. Just install this version on top of the RC--that is, no need to uninstall, just install this one. Thanks again for your help in testing.


got it - thanks
