It boots on VMware Workstation 6 with "acpi=off". Eth0 works. Sound works. Puppy Universal Installer seems to die after picking the data source. I installed it by using gparted to create a 7G ext2 and 1G swap on the virtual hard disk, mounting the ISO and dragging the files to the filesystem, running the Grub simple install, moving vmlinuz and initrd.gz to /boot and editing /boot/grub/menu.lst to add "initrd /boot/initrd.gz" and to point the kernel at /boot/vmlinuz.

The ohci_hcd module is still not being loaded. This is needed by various devices, including USB mice.

PostPosted: Fri 07 Mar 2008, 14:09    Post subject: First Impressions on the EeePC  

A7 boots up well running in live CD mode - screen resolution is set automatically at 800x480 and looks good - deal breaker is that although the network connection wizard says that the "ath_pci" wireless driver is loaded no connection is found. I've had the same issue with Puppy 3.01 also but strangely enough when using Pupeee which is based on 3.01 no problems with the wireless. It works "out of the box". In 3.01 the wired connection requires adding a driver and modifying /etc/networkmodules to add a line - thanks to dvw86 for that info. Link to the driver download is in the thread below

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=26567

If time permits later I'll try adding the LAN driver per his instructions and report back - it worked in 3.01 but only when I started from scratch with a new save file.

PostPosted: Fri 07 Mar 2008, 16:15    Post subject: still problem with d207gly2  

i still have the same problems i posted for alpha 6.

when i boot, it appears that the usb modules and the network modules are not loaded.
dmesg shows an attempt to load ehci_hcd "usb bus 1 deregistered"
if that is any help.

i remember something about inserting a pause when booting, to allow the modules a second or third chance to be inserted but do not know if that is related here.

another problem is that the network wizard shows interface eth0 ethernet sis900 driver loaded but the network is not configurable. i do not see any way to unload this driver that i do not believe is really loaaded. the wizard does not allow to unload a driver and to try to configure the same driver over again in an attempt to reload it.

i admit i am not experienced to fix these problems and have read and searched all over until my eyes are bloody. but i cannot find a solution. i have had the same problems with 3.01, muppy etc.
i am getting a pretty good pile of coasters here.

i hope this is a bug and not my inexperience showing....just trying to help.

PostPosted: Fri 07 Mar 2008, 20:02    Post subject: pidgin autolog loop - same as Dingo Alpha 6  

I just downloaded Puppy 4.00 alpha 7.

When I click on the chat icon and fill in the dialog box,
I get an autolog loop

nickserv gives me a series of 3 messages over and over,
chanserv only gives me one over and over.

Xchat seems to work fine.

BK said he hadn't gotten round to fixing this, but I thought
I should test it anyway. Sure enough, it's not fixed.

the drifting image

I am using an AOC monitor and a geforce 64MB graphic card
Within about 30 minutes of use the whole OS image drifts about 0.5cm to the right, so there is a black bar on the left hand side of the monitor

This happens in Lassie and the previous versions of Dingo
Could it be the Kernel? (did not happen in previous Puppy versions)

If I press autoconfigure on the monitor the screen image moves back into place.

Is anyone else getting this?

I used pburn
from Sigmund (Zigbert) in Dingo Alpha 7
(will hear whether successful but I think it was - copied an AVI for a Windows User)

Full marks for ease of use - keep up the good work Smile

Another big hit is the right hand side of the menu bar
right click on the time to load Osmo personal oganiser . . .

This is not a bug, but when you run Pmount, an orange "Probing..." message box always pops up. This looks pretty ugly against any background other than the default citrus theme. So I hid it.

Subject description: lost save file
 

Hi All

Berry Just want to say first off I like the way puppy 4 is heading and enjoy using it.

Now I downloaded puppy 4a7 burnt to cd played with it then decided to use the universal installer to install puppy 4 on my usb drive I had puppy 4a6 on it at the time with a 512 meg save file. When I was installing puppy it asked if I wanted to wipe the drive or just upgrade I am pretty sure I said upgrade. When I rebooted to the flash drive there was no save file and I had to start over which is not a big problem but just wanted to not the fact that I did loss my save file.
