Thanks backi, anyway, not only feedback about problems, also ideas/suggestions about any changes e.g. additions or removals are very welcome.
I don't like to do this on my own (well.. to be honest I'm very tired of it), until "stable" arrives in a few months (and even after) there's plenty of time to think about and discuss different concept.

Fred

Good Morning Fred !


The biggest "Problem" with " The Dogs" seems to be ..they are almost perfect ....and a real big Problem too...a certain Lack of public Awareness for these Gems .
IMHO this is "The Best" Linux Project up to date .
State of the Art ..
Mainly because having direct Access the the big Repositories (Debian-Ubuntu)
via Synaptic ....foolproof ..
having "The Best"Gimmicks of Puppy too .(Frugality is one of it....saving on Demand creating/using squash/sfs Modules directly from main Repos fastest easiest Remaster on Earth and much,much more...)
...in short ...best thing since sliced Bread .
..
(excuse me please .. all you hardworking Puppy Developers ...me using and testing other Puppies too.,.and i like them very much).

But nothing does not come from nothing .
I am not much a help .....because i am just an absolute Beginner ...even struggle hard to find the right (Linux) Terminolgy ...but still learning more every Day .
I am just somehow jumping the Bandwagon .
Try to compensate this Fact with psychological Support , Cheerleading ,Animation/Entertainement ,Humor Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Shocked Shocked Laughing ???? and giving Motivation....
Best Thing i can do is... go for getting Coffee and Cigarettes .

I am aware of the fact that almost the whole weight is on your Shoulders .
Sure there are also a few other Guys feeding,caring and training "The Dogs" (thanks a lot to them too).But you are the main Motor/Head keeping this phantastic Project alive ....so it seems to me.
You are somehow the Director of this fantastic Dog and Pony Circus/Show.
A hard Job to do ...i have to admit .

Tony "The Patron Saint-(less)" ....(one Candidate for the "Linux Hall of Fame")... his Talent and Creativity also is/was one of the main Motors/Heads of this Project ... missed.... but sadly gone .
(Kind of Syd Barrett Syndome???)
google for Syd Barrett .

Greetings .....can you hear me Tony ?

(The King is gone but he is not forgotten ....Johny Rotten....Johny Rotten ....Neil young ....just kidding)

Seems you are the "old" (pardon me please .....me 64 years old too )....Alpha Dog who everybody is looking up and relying on .
There is some kind of .."just ask Fred ,he will help" Attitude in the Air ,,,,,cause everybody knows ....you do .

Your Statement sounds like an appeal to everyone to engage more into this Project ....not only harvesting the fruits Others have sown ..

Sure there is life beyond Linux .
But don`t get me wrong you Guys out there....you peoples...hear the signals ....and get out of your Beds !!!

Ah, you are old hippie ? Laughing
I am (sort of), but a little younger (62)
Well... I really don't consider myself as "who everybody is looking up and relying on", so many things I don't know anything about..., but I'm doing my best, thanks anyway.

Cheers !

No, c'mon, there's much more that you can do, e.g. thoroughly testing, suggestions, ideas for improvement, write documentation, etc.. but only if you want of course Wink

Hi wanderer, thanks for testing !

To make wifi work, you probably need to install firmware for your wifi driver (firmware not included in Devuandog yet, maybe better to do so in the next ISO)

What's the output of :
Code:
inxi -nz


The firmware can be installed from Synaptic if we know which one you need, e.g. realtek or e.g. iwlwifi

For info, other option:
There's firmware .squashfs including the most important:
https://github.com/DebianDog/DevuanDog/releases/download/v1.1/99-firmware-DevuanDog-2019-01-10.squashfs
Download to some place (not inside the system itself, but outside, e.g. to some partition e.g. sda2) and load it from pcmanfm right-click 'Activate Module"
Or: if you boot frugally, add the firmware .squashfs to the "live" folder and reboot.
Also required to learn how to use Peasywifi, read the ---> Help

EDIT: Ooops... Posted at the same time, how did you manage setup wifi ?

Fred

I did use similar as already existing, "mklive-devuan" (for ascii branch)
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=996908#996908
but changed to "beowulf" branch, using debootstrap (it's great way to build a system), made more changes and afterwards remastered with quick-remaster. (well, this the short story)

Latest version installed. Browser uninstalled and linked to portable Firefox and Thunderbird like my main Stretch. Remastered and did normal little adjustments. Everything works fine so far. Sound works in Firefox.

Seems good to go.

*** DevuanDog update 2019-03-29 ***


Hello Fred,
Just installed your latest version (thanks for that). I am posting from it now. Have not had much time to test but have found one problem which I think is related to the intel issue. If I go to Tools>Preferences>Privacy>Exceptions I cannot copy and paste to the "Address of website" box. Left clicking on the box does not make it active. Right clicking gives the choice to paste but on selecting this nothing appears. Unsurprisingly, I cannot type directly in the box either. Just in case I checked the mouse and tried another but neither worked. Both work normally elsewhere. This is not a big issue but I thought it worth reporting.

Regards,

Ken.

Thanks Ken !

Do you have this PM issue with a pristine Devuandog install ? (or did you perhaps use savefile from earlier version?)
I ask because I don't have the problem you describe (but I do have Intel graphics too) and Palemoon is pre-configured in latest Devuandog

This included pre-config should fix a) from mentioned here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1016844#1016844
The b) issue (or perhaps the problem you have) can possibly fixed with the 20-intel.conf from here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1016897#1016897

Fred

Hello Fred,

Yes all new with new changes.dat in casper.
The quotes below are based on your links.
Quote:
browser.preferences.animateFadeIn to true

Yes this is preconfigured as true.
Quote:
place the file as /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf, then reboot

/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf did not exist in my version of /etc/X11/. On adding /xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf "Address of website" box is now working. I did run an md5 check sum on the iso and it corresponded with the one given. Should I have had an /xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf without adding it manually? Thanks again for your help.

Regards,

Ken.
