Playdayz,

Just a heads up, the JWM / Pupsave Hot Backup incompatibility has been resolved, and everything is smooth sailing now.

BTW, I notice that glxgears is producing about a 20% better fps than 511 with my built-in Radeon 200G and Xorg-High. Cool Lucid Puppy keeps getting better and better.

Tman,

I can not duplicate your problem mounting ISO file.
I can put an ISO file anyplace and mount and open in Rox.
Sometimes Rox will error, but closing and restarting Rox corrects.

runtt21 found the solution for me;

Apparently the problem is occuring because I only have 1 main partition on this computer and the ISO was on this same partition. The ISO file needs to be on a partition OTHER than /usr/mnt/home.

I don't not intend to make another partition on this hard-drive, but I copied an ISO file to a USB stick and tried mounting it from there by clicking on the file.
It work like a charm, so this problem is now solved. Smile

But it would be nice if the mounting option worked on the home drive.

I found a problem with this Puplet.

When I tried to mount a puppy ISO file by clicking on it I got an error message.
Upon further investigation, I noticed that the same thing happens for me in many modern puplets and was wondering if anyone out there knows of the solution to get puppy to mount an ISO file by clicking on it?

Larry,
In my investigation of the alsawizard and its use of retrovol, I see that the new driver version eliminates one of two error messages retrovol issues to /tmp/xerrs.log. This message is no longer produced:
    retrovol: control.c:400: snd_ctl_elem_read: Assertion `ctl && control && (control->id.name[0] || control->id.numid)' failed.
Yay! However, this one remains:
    Control hw:0 open error: No such file or directory
The speaker icon still disappears from the tray. Judging from lupu 5.2.5, the speaker should remain but with a tiny red X added to indicate "muted".

Now to track down why the hw:0 open fails.

Rerwin, getting added applications into a remaster is what I want. Thanks for the comment regarding that. I'll be especially watchful now for any extra effort that it may require. Having everything work from a remastered Live CD would be great. Second best would be to have all added apps visible in the new Live CD and use a companion .iso for an install.


Hotdog it is possible to have a standard Lupu-528.iso then make your own private myapps.sfs file. This sfs file can be loaded at bootup and all the additional software will show up in your menus just like the default stuff.

Look here:

Yes, 528 does not require any special preparation for the boot-to-desktop feature. It was recoded to avoid that.

Volhout, The remaster function is promarily for creating clean updated versions of puppy, with all the added packages for it. Remaster may or may not be accurate for added application packages, because it does not include everything an application might need. It does, however, remaster everything in the /usr directory. If you need more detail, please ask, here.

Volhut, Do you know of one? I know it is huge, but have you tried LibreOffice? That is the only one I know of. Here's the latest from the Lucid repo. 01micko has a getlibreoffice program I will package up in a bit.
ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-lucid/LibreOfc-3.3.1_en_US_sfs4.sfs

GetLibreOffice-Lucid (01micko) -> http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/GetLibreOffice-Lucid.pet

This might help http://linuxappfinder.com/office/presentations

Yes. In about a week is the tentative plan--a comprehensive Instant Update 002. Thanks.

smokey01 and Hotdog, Yes, Rerwin did fix it and has tested remastering in 528 and given it a thumbs up.

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

Here's something to test for possible inclusion in the next Instant Update.

http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/alsa_driver-1.0.24.pet

Especially please test this if you can if you are having any problems with sound. We also need to test to make sure it doesn't cause problems for people who are not having problems Wink I am running it and haven't had a problem. Install and reboot. Thanks.

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

Also, if you are having problems with sound, it might be worth the trouble to try Three-Headed Dog--which is based on Lucid 5.2.8 but with 1) a newer kernel, 2.6.37.6--the same as in Slacko, and 2) upgraded multimedia by default.

Subject description: 529

Playdays,

With update 001 and (as I read 2 posts back) minimal 5 patches from rerwin, would it be time to package the whole thing in a 529 or instant update 002 ?

I tend to get out of sync easily when I don't read the 528 threads daily....

BTW: running 528 at work and at home every day. It is a good and stable package. Only inconvenience I encounter is not in 528: double printing of Opera (10 series and 11 series). This is still not solved in 11.5 and shows in several linux distro's.

The only thing I am really missing in (all) puppy series is a presentation manager (!@#$%POWERPOINT$%^$%&^&*). Something that (at least) can show a PPT presentation, but preferably also can make one. An alternative to this could be a convertor. A tool to convert a ppt into html so the browser can show it. Not sure anything like that exists.

Thank you for the 52x series. My PC's haven't seen Microsoft since 520 except 1 (for the PPT's and some tools that don't exist for linux, like a Garmin driver for geocaching). I have tried other distro's, sometimes they loaded with apps, sometimes more eye appealing, but none of them work/install that easy on the variety of my HW (4 different PC's and 2 different laptops). It is amazing. Whatever I throw at it, it simply works. WIFI type N USB dongle ... simply works. Printer sharing via wireless network with windows ... simply works ... replace monitor (from 1024x768 to 1280x1024) simply works .... (try that with Ubuntu haha.....)

Thanks !!

Volhout

Please don't feel you have been put in your place if someone tells you to search for answers. Once you master searching you can solve most of your problems simply and quickly.
