How did it screw them up please?


I'm not going to be of much help here and I should have taken a snapshot but each time after installing the Chromium 15 Slacko .pet then starting either Firefox,Seamonkey or Thunderbird,I got an error message(cant recall what it said).I didn't take the matter further because I then decided I maybe shouldn't have installed a Slacko .pet into Lucid.At which point I then reverted to a backup savefile.

Hey, check this out. It looks like the pets I made for Slacko work better in Lucid than the pets I made for Lucid. Chromium 15, Google Chrome 13, and Iron 13 seem to work without the "pinwheel of death" (the problem where they get stuck Loading--especially when the system is first started). If this pans out, I will update the PPM.

I had problems the other day when installing a Chromium 15 Slacko .pet in 528.For some reason after install,it screwed Firefox,Seamonkey and Thunderbird up.

I made some Slacko pets that gave me a clue about Chromium 15, Iron 13 and Google Chrome 13 on Lucid. Keep your fingers crossed.

An Iron 13 pet for Lucid 5.2.8 is a few messages below.

Don't use the Slacko pets.

works perfectly on my 1st gen intel i5 system using a lin'n'win frugal install. Its damn near instant at executing most things!
I successfully upgraded the package manager list (involving a 5minute wait as a matrix style rain of package checks filled the terminal!) then installed python and openshot, edited some hd cam footage and exported it as well as installing firefox, all before I had rebooted to create a save file.
Very solid, fantastic work!
It even set up my intelpro ethernet which has defeated nearly every other puppy Very Happy

green_dome is the person who compiles wine and his latest is 1.3.25.
Winehq has announced 1.3.26, so green_dome will shortly announce it.

The Wine thread of green_dome can be easily found by searching on his name with the puppy search link in my thread.

Now for your problem, it is better to post it the users forum, as I don't think it's a lucid 5.2.8 issue.


Speaking about Wine,I'd been having a few problems with the version that is in Quickpet 1.3.13.I couldn't get it to install Gecko properly so after several failed attempts tried version 1.3.25 and so far all seems to work.

GREAT Work:)
Just a few things so it truelly would fit in the category "The best of the best".

Could you try to get it to work with older HW like ATI Rage 128 Pro or older nVidia? And here I mean "out of the box" with full OpenGL.

Its a hassle to get these old videocards to work, for which has full support in both windows 2000 and XP.

I had 5.2.5, but had to move to 4.2.1 to get OpenGL to work, because the new drivers and the new xorg didn't support the ATI card fully.

Also it would be nice if wine were fully integrated in the menu, so that "Wine Programs" were there too. Right now its nowhere to be found after installing Wine and here I mean all versions up to the newest 1.3.9.xxxx.

And if localization would work and actually change the menu to the language you use and not just english. Yesterday I gave a helping hand to Sc0ttman, by tranlslating some of his .mo files to danish, so it should not be impossible.

Last but not the least, it would be nice if you(user) could customize the desktop(add shortcuts, refresh and allign, and so on).

Keep up the good work:)

With kind regards

Subject description: 528

Full install of 528 on Celeron 2400MHz PC with SIS graphics.

Works great.! I am soo happy, and amazed that Puppy 5 series works on my PC. I have tried Ubuntu (10 and 11) and Mint before, and neither would work well with the onboard graphics of my PC, not even after installing prop. SIS driver. But the XORG in puppy 5 series does it !

Audio: OK, Wireless OK, Ethernet OK, CD burner OK.

Next is printer. It's late now, so we will look at it tomorrow.

PlayDayz, thanks for your energy to pull this through to the end. I understand that this bugfix update ran out of control when more and more got updated, and understand that becuase of the risk in this you hesitated between 2HD and 528. Glad it proved good enough as a the best 5xx puppy.

Regards,

Harm

-edit- had one instance where firefox (5) kept running after closing. Restarting caused a popup "firefox is still running". Had to kill the task. Then all was okay again.

Fantastic news! Thanks to ALL Puppy Devs! Been keeping me happy on desktops and EeePCs alike for three years now and being an Ubuntu base is just like Christmas to me!
Again, wholeheartedly, thank you!!!
