Please consider adding Dougal's Hotpup


Agreed
Completely intuitive to see ones available storage devices at the bottom of the screen.


i agree it's really cool and would love to see it included.

is dougal interested in having it included?

i've seen lots of interested persons (myself included now), but i've never seen dougal publicly post the code. did i miss this? or just the intent somewhere?

re. BK's blog today : "guess_fstype utility fixed"
Any chance BK/Jesse could detect BSD fs?! R&W would be a bonus. MUT3?

Only just got around to testing the FULL install*. It doesn't work! Range of different symptoms. On a SiS chipset, the CD ejects when it should be starting to extract the files, on an i810 chipset, the utility just drops out after selection the install partition. Tried all the usual tricks - nada.

*i.e. of Dingo alpha7, not BSD.

Hi sage,
do you happen to know what the bsd filesystem is called? and/or do you know any open source projects that do detect it? as I can then copy over the magic string identifiers to guess_fstype.

Greetings, Jesse. Of course, you're asking the wrong guy but I did see NFS* flash past during booting and I believe that it's a fairly mainstream type? Their file extensions are .pbi but no idea whether that is relevant? Do I know of any mainstream...etc? No! But I'm sure there are some? There'll be plenty of gurus hanging around here who are better able to advise.

Apart from that, the excitement really is building for the appearance of MUT2.

PS. PC-BSD 1.5 was announced half-an-hour ago, and has a 64bit version. Now would be a great time to try it.

Update: *but KInfoCentre gives it as ufs. Never heard of that one?!

So you did - I missed that as you were reporting different symptoms. Where are you? Oz? France?

The problem that zygo has reported about missing content in chap-secrets and pap-secrets is strange. I have posted a report on this to my blog today, www.puppylinux.com/blog/

Attached is the pupdial script with a workaround to fix this problem. Kindly let me know if it works for you. The script goes into /usr/sbin and has to be set executable if it isn't already. You can see the changes in the script where the comments have the string "v3.98".

Barry - in the other thread you mentioned you were thinking of opening images in gview when clicking on them in ROX - I complained in the alpha 6 thread about using MtPaint for this, but the other thing to realise is that gview (at least in alpha 6) segfaults on a lot of images.

Images should be opened by default by a viewer.

PostPosted: Fri 14 Mar 2008, 12:11    Post_subject: Dingo alpha7 with dual CPU  

Hi,
I've tried Dingo alpha7 on a machine with an Abit BP6 board equipped with two Celeron 533 MHz CPUs and 512 MB of RAM. Booted without a problem (the previous version hang during booting), and runs smoothly. However, cpuinfo reported only one processor. Is it a bug?
Earlier, when I tried an earlier Dingo (sorry, I forgot which version), it reported two CPUs in that machine.

Image viewer is better than editor
if the viewer is qiv Dougal has been working on using a key binding to then open mtpaint

personally I couldn't give a snakes armpit about the theme colour
I do like using the gtk theme to generate the jwm theme ala 2.14R

Works with PIII and Soyo motherboard ( ancient hardware, I know ),
but gives an identification error on the Intel video probe PCI ID 71208086
seems to be unknown by the driver, but it correctly allows me to set
1280x1024x24 video. The dialog says "OK for monitor, maybe not for card" or some such.

Is there some way to decrease the interval where the pup_save file is autosaved ?

Also, all attempts at encrypting the pup_save file failed to reboot ; saved to a n ext2 formatted 1 GB flash drive and did NOT have the pup_396.sfs on it ; was booting from CD.
