Ok after about 20 mins playing with it I managed to crash it


You seem to have singlehandedly achieved in 20 minutes what a week of a preschool of 30 two-year-olds could not! Surprised

Seriously though, thanks for your time, skills and help Ttuxxxx. Feedback and testing is always appreciated. Which game was it so we can replicate it? Very Happy

Ive updated the link. The "official" version for testing purposes is now at http://ljfr.perso.neuf.fr/. Let me know if you need a mirror...servage have just increased my download bandwidth to 7500gb from 5000gb per month so hopefully no more blackouts for a while. I can make private ftp accounts for people for my webspace too if they would like one (sidders).

PostPosted: Tue 28 Apr 2009, 08:19    Post subject: updated test version  

Hi,

OBSOLETE:
I uploaded a updated version for tests,
http://ljfr.perso.neuf.fr/gcompris280408/

which includes:
- missing dependencies, namely esound 0.2.41 and pysqlite 2.4.0
- updated and split cound / locales sfs partly from the 8.4.12 release.
there is one .sfs (and the equivalent .pet file) including all languages sounds, and one .pet per language in case you only want few of them.
-the main sfs : gcompris-8.4.6-i486-1cf_420.sfs includes english text and sounds.
... and some cosmetic (mutli-lingual .desktop files, ...).

If you use version 4.1.2, the dependency check also asked for the lib Tcl/Tk (requested by _tkinter), I don't know if they are truly needed, you can find them in the Ibiblio ftp.

I still have a minor issue with sounds: when installed on 4.1.2 or with a .pet, with the background music activated, I cannot hear "bleep" sound when I click / choose a game in the main board -with no warning/error on console. But everything works with a sfs in the 4.2, ... weird. So worst case: you may have to desactivated background music. almost no test on the administration board yet.

They are few known bug (melody memory activity), crash cases ... see
gcompris releases notes of latest versions. You could also browse forums / docs to find interesting features : how to change background music, add words in some activities ...

to slim down the sfs, I started a doc sfs, with all games doc and python pygtk demo and some extra modules - to be improved.
I let the dev files in.

regards,

You can remove\hide apps that crash or are too much for the little ones in Gcompris admin console.
gcompris -a

Go to Profiles and add a profile. Within that profile add the 'All users' group. Then make the profile default.

Go to Boards and expand the categories and individual boards and deselect the ones that may cause problems or that you think are too much for your particular age group.

Subject description: new download place
 

hi sorry for the delay, I set up a new download place:
http://ljfr2.perso.neuf.fr/GcomprisSFS/

with 2 folders:
-one "split" folder with 4 SFS (gcompris 1cf, doc, locales, all sounds) and in the Sound directory a pet for each language if necessary.
-one "allinone" SFS, a merge of the 4 previous SFS.

If someone could host those files, it would be helpfull, since I don't know how long this new ftp will survive.

Subject description: feedback #0
 

Apologies for the delay in giving you some feedback

Downloaded ok, i normaly use puppy as a multisession live cd and these seen to have difficulty in using sfs files

So I loaded turbopup alpa3 onto a usb stick using ubutwin, then loaded your gcompris sfs

I have tried most games at level one and what ever the highest level is, they are not the same for all games

Only issue to date is Tux paint open and closes saying cannot find something?

Might be a screen resolution issue i will try a few options and report back later, (qualify)i only loaded the small version no sound and english only this might have some effect

Normal issue with the big red cursor, need to open the sponge game first to get it to change from small black to large red

Thank you for the time and effort you have put into this project

I will load it into upup476.iso when i can get it loaded onto a usb stick

Health Wealth and Happiness for the future

ljfr , I have revisited your beta sfs, the message that comes up when you try to open Tuxpaint is

cannot find tux paint
install it to use this activity

As I downloaded the small 68m sfs i assume that Tuxpaint was not in the package, is this correct?

Regards

Peeter

Hi Peter,
You are right, tuxpaint is not included in this sfs, You have to download and install it separately. pet packages to be found on this forum.

PostPosted: Mon 19 Oct 2009, 06:46    Post subject: Gcompris 8.4.12  

Hi,

To be tested, I compiled gcompris 8.4.12 on puppy 431 with dependencies,I split packages between main/doc/dev/NLS, and uploaded everything in that folder:
http://ljfr2.perso.neuf.fr/pet_packages-4/general/
It may end in a smaller package.

To avoid many dependencies, I disabled few plugins in gstreamer, and gnet in gcompris ... so read the README file:
http://ljfr2.perso.neuf.fr/pet_packages-4/general/README
to get some details, It seems gstreamer is just needed for sounds -so no need for libvisual, libtheora, ...

It also works on my PC on puppy 412 with few package update- see README.

NB:In the same folder, you will find pygame, childsplay, pysycache -menu is broken, type pysycache in console ...-, updated tuxpaint and tuxpaintstamps...

regards,

The svn trunk had SDL for a sound option before .13 was released - did anyone test that method yet? SDL is much more useful for games than gstreamer anyways.

You're right the configuration option --enable-sdlmixer reappeared with the version 8.4.13, I am doing some tests, if it works, will update with a 8.4.13 sdl version.
