Yes, I do tend to forget that. I will check what is there. Good point. They did say that 3.5.4 was supposed to be "up to 100% faster in opening large files," which sounded good to me Wink Speed has always been my biggest problem with Libre/Open Office. The Libre versions of Lupu are an attempt to get Libre to run faster by including it in the sfs that is copied to ram.

That should be possible. However, it would eat up the lupusave file because the update would be installed in lupusave rather than sfs. On the other hand, if you have enough save file space (and it can be increased remember) then it would eat up some the first time you updated, but subsequent updates would not cost much because they would overwrite the previous update. But come to think of it--I have been getting an "Checking for an Update Failed" message when I know there is an update....in Lupu Plus Libre. I don't understand why--does anyone?

The best thing I think I is to get 01micko's get_libreoffice 0.15 so you can continue to update yourself. It will not work with Lupu/Plus Libre however, since Libreoffice is already installed. Here is the thread -> http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=65918

Here is the 3.5.4 sfs -> http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/LibreOffice-3.5.4_en-US.sfs


Playdayz, thank you for your effort in keeping the repository up to date. Keep in mind, please, that 01mickos getlibreoffice pet will not work on USB installs. So...perhaps just update the repository when a major update of Libreoffice occurs (ie, 3.5, 3.6, etc). Seems like Libreoffice is adopting a quick update model along the lines of Chrome or Firefox. While the half-point updates may be too much to stay up on, consider my suggestion, please, regarding major updates.

FWIW - I am not noticing a great deal of difference between 3.5.4 and 3.5.3. Surely these half-point updates aren't in response to security threats? Wonder if it is possible to use the self-update feature inside Libreoffice to stay current? (Thereby relieving Playdayz of having to update the repository)

Sounds like you have installed the Lupu.sfs and Lupusave.3fs files from running a live CD of Lucid (Lupu), along with a regular frugal install. The only ones you want to have are what the frugal install put on computer.

If this is true, not sure what this is.

monitor, but rest of hardware incl video driver was different;

If this (Lucid 511) used a save file that is still on computer, Lucid(Lupu) could be trying to use it. Because of the change in hardware it would contain the wrong info and settings.

Try deleting the duplicate files.
Only have the files that are in the subdir created when lupu was
doing the frugal install.
You may also have to rerun the boot loader config program to make sure the entry for Lupu is still pointing to the proper location.
If you have two save files, with the same exact name, it could cause the problems you see.
A corrupted save file will also cause problems.

You can have two Lupusave files, but they have to have different names.
Like:
lupusave-something.3fs
Lupusave-whatever.3fs
When you boot Lucid(lupu) it will ask which one to use.


Better yet, you may want to just delete everything on the computer, Lupu related, and start fresh.

You can do all of this by running Lucid (Lupu) from a live CD, using the boot option puppy pfix=ram.
This will keep the live CD from using any of the files on the computer.
When you reboot from running with the live CD, just say no to any questions about making a save file or putting a copy of the Lupu.sfs on computer.

No, it overwrote them. I usually uninstall the old pet before installing the new one, but that is not necessary--it will take the same amount of space either way. When the new pet is uninstalled the old one will not be there "underneath" because it has been overwritten by the new one which has then been uninstalled.

Google Chrome 19 SFS

Here's an SFS of Google Chrome 19 for anyone prefers an SFS browser. After installing you will need to use the Browser Chooser to select Chrome as the default. It is the same as the pet of Chrome 19-2. You place it in /mnt/home and then use Bootmanager or SFS-Load-on-the-fly to install it.

[moved from mistaken location in parent topic "Puppy Projects"]

using Dell 17" LC D monitor at 1024x768, vesa driver
with nvidia video hardware.

1) the text labels of the hard disk partition icons ("sda1", "sda2" etc)
extend into the taskbar space and are partially or completely
overwritten by the taskbar. Strangely, this doesn't happen to fd0.

2) icons for usb drives initially appear each above and half-
overlapping a hard disk partition icon (and/or fd0, can't remember).

Notes: 1) my previous lucid (511) didn't have this problem on this
monitor, but rest of hardware incl video driver was different;
2) This machine has about 9 total hard drive partitions
formatted for filesystems.
3) the first-run setup told me I could have a display 1288 (?)
x 1024, but this mode turned out to have the left edge of
the screen image repeated on the right side.
EndOfNotes, resume previous numbering.

3) I seem to have 2 identical copies of the lupu sfs, one in a subdir
(named, from memory, something like "l528005.43") apparently
created by lupu spontaneously, at the top of the install partition,
and one in the subdir created when lupu asked if I wanted to
install to a subdir, then asked me to specify a name.
Similarly, I seem to have 2 (same size but not identical according
to cmp) lupusave.3fs files, in different directories, but lupu never
asks me to choose between them, it just silently picks one.
Neither of these (near-)duplicates is a problem except as a waste
of space in the rather small install partition.

This is my concern also. I've lost a 2sf file in the past because it got filled to the limit.

Do you mean that every one of the last nine times Seamonkey auto-installed an update on my lupu528/ lupupluslibre, it left the previous version's files intact in my 2fs file?

If so, how can I get rid of the redundant files? How much space could I expect to recover if I simply uninstall Seamonkey completely, after saving my passwords and bookmarks, and then installing the 2.10 pet?

Puppy has something for everyone! Shinobar is right--if one uses an sfs-based browser such as his SM, then updating will consume lupusave. I personally don't mind that so much and I prefer that my browser auto-update to stay current--if the browser is installed with a pet then the auto-update will not take any more lupusave space than the pet already takes because it will overwrite files in the pet. Admittedly, the Google Chrome pet for instance does use about 105MB of lupusave.

Same with me.
In Seamonkey 2.9.1 I had auto update set in preferences to only check for updates, but not download and install.
I did the update to 2.10 by help->check for updates.
After the update to 2.10 the preference settings where still set the way I wanted them. So for me, it seems the preferences are not reset, but remembered between updates. Good thing!

If the person making a pet of Seamonkey or Firefox, does not deliberately turn off auto update, then it will be set on by default, when you install the pet.
Mozilla made auto update on the default setting in all of their browsers.
When you install the browser, the first thing it will do is run auto update and if update is found, it will install the update.
For Seamonkey or Firefox auto update settings can be changed in preferences.
(while I was changing the settings for auto update in Seamonkey, it was already downloading the update.)

Seamonkey preferences for auto update, when you first install the Lucid pet of Seamonkey:

Thanks for 3.54.sfs.
I d/l the " get_libreoffice-015.pet" and will use on future updates of libreoffice.

This new version is super fast and really enjoying it.

Again, thanks for your assistance. You are always Johnny-on-the-Spot, when I need something.
