Subject description: A Puppy with good stuff....
 

Hey,

I am now building my new Puppy.

What's so special about it???

This will include:

Average Person's Programs........

Firefox - A very popular lightweight, fast browser. (firefox.com)
Flash 9 - Flash plugin. (adobe.com)
GAIM - A multi-IM. Can access Yahoo, MSN, AIM, and more! (Includes IRC.)
Torsmo - System info on your desktop. (torsmo.sourceforge.net)

AND MORE...

USES PUPPY 2.14 CORE! This core includes a lot of things....
And best of all, IT'S MULTI USER TOO!
That means better security!

Current progress:
(BOLD means working on. In () tells progress.)
Will be updated every so often.

Last updated: Tuesday 1 May 2007

Get space on NTFS HD for remaster (DONE)
Research and look online for anything useful (DOING, 90%)
Make Pets for the remaster of Puppy (DOING, 50%)
Rebuild kernel to have multiuser support (DOING, 80%)
Apply patches to kernel(squashfs and other things) (85%)
Edit ISOLINUX settings (NOT YET)
Apply PETS to the unleashed package (NOT YET)
Test CoolPup 1.0.0 BETA (also a beta release) (NOT YET)
Revise and fix flaws in CoolPup 1.0.0 BETA (NOT YET)
RELEASE CoolPup 1.0.0 (NOT YET)

---------------------------------
If you wish to help me make CoolPup, please post a reply here.

A couple help needed in:

- Rebuilding kernel
- Getting the compiled programs into PETS

This post will be updated every so often when completing something. Very Happy

GAIM is know known as Pidgin (www.pidgin.im). Pidgin 2.0 (GAIM 2.0) will be released this week hopefully. Btw, good work, if you get multiuser support working flawlessly you rock, and I didn't think it had anything to do with the kernel.

Hey,

It's going to be hard. Compiling kernels are easy, but doing the editing of Puppy's loadup scripts will be hard.....

Some people are working on those scripts. Like Nathan F. He's working on a multiuser script for Xorg and Xvesa.

If your going to recompile the kernel how about applying the open mosix patch and really unleash the puppy!

OH YES !!! OPENMOSIX !!!

this is the real future of community programming ! I had always hope this could be applied to puppy !!!

We would have the very best community far beyond all others !
"The only programmers really working altogether, even their computers compute altogethers !"

Barry, please, is this possible ? We could build a PUPPY CLUSTER !!

Best regards,
Laurent.

I don't see how OpenMosix would be useful over the internet.

Looks real neat, as long as I can turn in on and off at will.

I didn't get too far into the docs (just skimmed the page), but it looks like it's just ON all the time.

mosix would be very cool to have. add a computer algebra system too so we can use all that processing power for something other than video conversion. add znes is there an N64 emulator?

I'll eventually compile many random emulators. And OpenMosix for 2.6.x kernels is in pre-alpha. It will be some time before people will have use for it.
