Playdayz,

Guvcview:
I just did not see it in the multimedia menu and must have miss typed the name when I did a "which guvcview" on a console. My error!!!

Midnight Commander:
I uninstalled mc version 4.7.0 with slang 2.2.2 and installed mc 4.7.5 you listed above and it works great!!! The mc in the QuickPets has a dependency for "slang-2.2.2.pet" which is never resolved because the ".pet" file is not stored in /usr/lib, but only the contents of the Pet. This dependency problem does not exist with mc-4.7.5.


I just have one game (llk-linux) to port over from Lucid 525 which I installed from a separate site and move my firefox bookmarks and Lucid 528 can be my main Linux. I did this with a frugal install and now have 15 puppies + mint installed on my Toshiba laptop.

I store all my personal "home = /root" files (all documents, pictures, videos, etc) in a separate partition. This keeps the individual puppy save files to a minimum and allows me to use any puppy to access the files. I also use external USB hard drives for saving my personal files back to 1995. This keeps it off the laptop and off the internet. The only files local to a puppy are its configuration files and pets downloaded. I do keep a separate Pet folder for things like mc-4.7.5.pet and use the same copy of OpenOffice.sfs for all the puppies for file compatibility.

I backup my personal files to the external 1Tb USB hard drive then back it up to a second external 1Tb USB hard drive using a simple bash script containing "rsync" commands.

I am still happy with my 32-bit single core intel processor Toshiba Satellite A205-S5805 laptop. It is the bottom of the line laptop I got a Frys for $250. Until Duane installed Fatdog on his dual core 64-bit $1500 laptop, mine was faster!! He is now very happy with his slightly faster Fatdog Puppy. We discovered Chubby Puppy 1.06 back in 2006 and have been using Puppy Linux ever since.

Thank you, Barry, and all the other developers for the great Puppies.

-Bruce.

Here is the first Test of Instant Update 001 for Lucid 5.2.8
(Also applicable to Three-Headed Dog)

Click the link to download the pet and then click to install - Reboot

X libgconf2-4_3.1.6 to enable Chromium-based browsers
X libgconf_DEV-3.1.6
X Help -> LupuNews puppylogo96 image without being connected
X update Firewallstate 2.0 tasmod
X update PupControl 1.7 radky includes very cool PupSysinfo
X update Pburn 3.3.5 zigbert
X change to Start with Playlist in gnome-mplayer for dvd’s otherwise gnome-mplayer shows black screen with audio until one changes size of screen - for dvd's, XineDVD is still better, but some people might expect the default media player to play dvd's with no fuss, not unreasonably Wink
X add Getflash (modified) from Slacko to update (or install) Flashplayer
X add Cloud Puppy by szzindian, under Utility

From rerwin:
# 1. Update /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG.
# 2. Reduce occurrences of DNS not being set for ppp connections to some USB-modem ISPs. (/etc/ppp/wvdial)
# 3. Retain access to prename script if devx also loaded (with a different script of the same name) (usr/share/applications/prename.desktop).
# 4. Set "show_msg=NO" configuration option for both of dillo's dillorc files (adding the one in /etc/dillo).
# 5. Correct missing "fi" statement in bareview script.
# 6. Personal Settings updates:
# . . a. Complete the hostname-change process by cycling connections and prompting user to log out.
# . . b. Simplify numlock preset logic.
# . . c. Avoid "barks" during full country-settings display but retain them for first runs with no pupsave files or full installations.
# . . d. Integrate firstrun-1.8.4 into lupu version of personal settings script but exclude new "extralang" support (which could be provided by a dot-pet package).

Is there a pet for the webcam for Lucid 528?

Lucid 525 had Guvcview 1.4.4 included in the release. This works for my webcam. In fact it is the only webcam software that I have found to work across all the puppies.

Just a link to get the pet for Guvcview would be fine. Thanks.

In my copy of 5.2.8 Guvcview is listed in menu->multimedia->Guvcview Webcam Viewer

Playdayz,

Thanks for fixing the lupu_devx_528-2.sfs file, I will download it at the library tomorrow. Is 5-6 hours to download now and <10 minutes at the library and free.

Midnight Commander:
Using Quickpet, I attempted to download mc=Midnight Commander. When I clicked the "Check for dependencies" button it crashed. I tried 3 times with the same result. I loaded Midnight Commander pet alone which has the missing dependency slang-2.2.2-i486.pet. Any idea where I can find that pet on the net along with libgio?

Thanks, This is a great release. I have been using Lucid 525 as my regular Linux up to now. I downloaded 528 at noon today. A few more tweaks of the user interface environment and it will be the same as my 525
environment.

-Bruce.

FYI
The file lupu_devx_528-2.sfs is only 2.3k and not 139.1Mb when I attempted to download it from the repository link on the release webpage.

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/puppy-5.2.8/lupu_devx_525-2.sfs

My apologies Bruce_n_Duane. I do that almost every time. I have to change permissions of an sfs file (but not of a pet which is why I forget).

By the release web page you mean http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=70855

Not sure about the fanatic part

majorfoo, I meant fanatic about seeing the latest version work. I think that is a great aspect of Puppy--because we are smaller than other distros I think it is easier for us to get the latest versions into working order and available for users. Thanks for your help.

Add: I had left the pet extension off the link, but it still downloaded the file with the pet extension, but without the extension. Weird, but now fixed. I think maybe my diddywahdiddy server does that somehow.


I am just trying to learn why some of the apps don't work. I enjoy trying to figure out what is wrong and sometimes I can fix by copying lib from another puppy. I am not a programmer nor a developer. Just a dumb user trying to learn.

Thanks for you patience and help.

Don't know if anyone else had this problem with a similar wireless card but the microcode for my intel centrino advanced-n wireless card (iwlagn driver) was missing, fixed it with pet below.


Total newbie at this so forgive me if I keep this simple. Was using Puppy 5.2.5 until my employer decided to upgrade my laptop. Now I can't see my wireless card to get internet access. Tried 5.2.8 and 5.2.9 but still no change. Found the above download and again tried it but no luck. Is there anything else I can try?

Details:
Toshiba Tecra R850-140

PostPosted: Thu 01 Sep 2011, 14:19    Post subject: rerwin patch updated

playdayz,
After posting my "complete" set of changes, it occurred top me that the dialog messages preceding the required X-restart did not alert the user as to what to expect -- in a language expected by the user. The messages in the "personalized settings" script have language support. So, additional instructions are appropriate and are added to the "patch" package, replacing the original package.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=558769#558769

The new messages take into account that both a host rename and Xorgwizard request could be entered at the same time. During the restart, the hostname logout-xwin operation is done first, followed by execution of the Xorg wizard and return to the desktop. In addition to the messages, I corrected a minor bug I found that resulted from a subtle name change.

An operational note: When a user enters changes to the "personalized settings" dialog window, all needed changes should be made at once if the Xorg wizard is not to be used. If the wizard is used, the dialog will reappear afterward, allowing further entries to be made. It does not reappear after other changes. This is the same as before. If anyone has remaining issues with the "personalized settings" dialog, now is a good time to mention them, so that I might address them.

From Distrowatch -> Wojciech Kozikowski has emailed DistroWatch (and Linus Torvalds) with a complaint about his inability to find a distribution that would run on an i586 machine: "I wanted to install Linux on my old AMD K6+III/450 MHz PC

Playdayz comment -> Lucid Puppy Linux 5.1.1 is tested on AMD K6. It is not the latest Lucid Puppy but we keep it available for that reason.

majorfoo, I meant fanatic about seeing the latest version work. I think that is a great aspect of Puppy--because we are smaller than other distros I think it is easier for us to get the latest versions into working order and available for users. For instance, Ubuntu Oneiric is still using ffmpeg 0.7.1, but we already have 0.8.2 in use--and it is the default in Slacko. Sorry that I forgot to correct the omission of the pet extension--you had the right fix. Sickness Audacious 3.0.2 is experimental, I have changed the pet to eliminate the menu entry and to include libmpg123--some people might want to redownload. Thanks for your help.
