Same host, but different servers.

Ok. Must be just extremely high demand then. Razz

When I switch to jwm, the menu has no option to switch back to icewm, I have to type restartwm icewm in a command window. Also, in jwm, Gaim is not in the menu, so it has to be typed in from the command line.

Yep. That's a long-standing JWM issue. I'll have a look and see if I can organise a workaround using XDG menus.

Question Question Question In Puppy you are root by default and root has access to absolutely everything? What program were you trying to use?

Yep, seems that peeps love their Puppy variants. Servage currently let me hit 110GB in one day which is astounding to think that much was downloaded in 24 hrs. (actually less than 24 hrs & tickets have been submitted on that issue.) Question Still when MU's site & mine both go over the limit, which happens... that's 200+GB. Shocked

We both accept donations though. Very Happy

I read some on the Bandwidth problems and thought this might help
I uploaded puppy-215CE-RC2-Standard and the extra sfs files to MiHD.net Just Click where it says request download link then click download link

puppy-215CE-RC2-Standard.iso
OOo_215.sfs
web_215.sfs
fltkc++_215.sfs

Maybe this will help in any case it's free Cool

Everything looks brilliant on paper but how do I get it onto my system. ?

The best way, if you want to start with a full setup, is to download the iso and sfs files, then use Isomaster to add the sfs files to the iso. Then burn the iso to CD-R. Everything should then be available on the CD for next boot. Cool

After several false starts I finally added the web.sfs and pgs.sfs files to the Puppy 215CE iso and burned a multisession DVD+RW with the super-sized (~250 MB) "Graphics" iso. The DVD boots, saves and reboots with the saved settings. I can see them when I mount the DVD, but I don't know if the extra sfs files are doing anything. .

I must say, SeaMonkey's download manager seems to be a waste of pixels. It must be either buggy or misconfigured somehow. The first time I tried to download the sfs files, the download manager reported "finished" even though, as it turned out, each file had only about 22 MB. I didn't realize the files were incomplete until I had wasted about an hour trying to make a new iso with them using ISOmaster. I guess it's a good thing ISOmaster would not work with incomplete files. (I know, I should have used wget, and checked the md5 sums. Laughing )

ISOmaster took a while to figure out but not too long. It would have been faster if the sfs files had been downloaded correctly. When ISOmaster wouldn't save the iso I had made with them, I started poking around and discovered the files were incomplete. I was careful not to do anything else with the computer while they downloaded the second time, and they both downloaded completely. Maybe SeaMonkey's download manager is somehow counting every packet received as going to the download, so if you're browsing the internet while you're downloading, the download manager comes to the wrong total. That's just a wild-ass guess.

I booted the new "Graphics" DVD+RW I burned, changed a few things, shut down saving to the DVD, and booted again. The saved settings were remembered, but I don't know how to tell if the sfs files are correctly "installed" and useable. How can I tell?

Yep. If you included the pgs_215.sfs, then you should be able to type gimp in a console and have it run. That will show it is there and mounted. We're still trying to work out why the menu system updates on Pizzasgood's machine but not on mine, or yours evidently.

I'm presuming you don't have Gimp in your graphics menu ... you don't, do you? Go to a console and type fixmenus, then restart Icewm to see if the menu is updated with either an Office menu or the addition of graphics programs to the graphics menu.

You can test the web_215.sfs by typing firefox in a console, too.

Shortcuts for the programs in the sfs files are in /usr/local/bin and should be able to be dragged to the desktop and run from there until we get the menu's behaving nicely.

Hope that helps.

Great, Ted Dog! That should help out with the downloads, big time! Much appreciated.

Good news, bad news, and ugly news regarding web_215.sfs (the current one is actually a beta/rc, just as the ISO is).

Good: I've already replaced NVU with KompoZer (no, not dependent on KDElephant, just a bug-fixed version of NVU)

Bad: Flash was still buggy. I fixed a big error I made, but it didn't change anything. If you try leaving a page while flash is running, Firefox locks up (open a terminal and use killall firefox; killall firefox-bin

Ugly: The Flash problem isn't my fault, as far as I can see. Something is different in 2.15, because it works fine in vanilla Pizzapup 3.0 and vanilla Puppy 2.14.

I'll try figuring out the difference tomorrow. Right now I need to put my bed back together so I can sleep.

That is great news. Most people are happy with Composer. I usually download NVU (it is the simplest .pup) but Komposer is the latest

Using Komposer might inspire improvements to the Viz offline Webpage here:

Standard Edition RC2 + web_215.sfs + devx_215.sfs + fltkc++_215.sfs = Developer Edition


So where should I find the devx_215.sfs file?

I have searched the forum for its location, including looking at http://www.puppyos.net/test/ which shows devx_214.sfs.

devx_215.sfs is also not present at the locations of the other sfs files mentioned.

Thanks

Is the fltkc++_215.sfs file missing a directory level or something? It's loading on my system but putting a lot of files straight into the top level / directory.

Changing the subject; the CE homepage file doesn't have all of the links from original home page and for those that want to change back to file:///root/puppy-reference/doc/home.htm, it's now missing some of it's images.

One more thing, why not turn on SeaMonkey's splash screen as Nathan suggested a while ago, it's a simple edit of the 2nd to last line in /usr/local/bin/mozstart file:
exec /usr/lib/mozilla/mozilla-bin -splash $COMTAIL
(always appears to load faster when somethings happening)

I find the Venerable modern theme in Seamonkey a bit dark for my personal tastes but it's simple enough to change.
