Well it certainly is working for me.
Just a couple of things I've noticed which are details but...

1. MHHP asked about the sort order of the icons. His and mine seemed different. Mine had "home" after the other partitions. Then I added two more partitions and home kept its position and the new two partition icons followed it. So not very logical. This was the case even after a reboot.
See screenshot below. hdb12 and hdb13 have been added after I installed the mut-scroll-pet and made the file mods as per MHHT's posts above.

2. I did say way back that although I can now see partitions greater than hdb9 I still get an error message on boot up saying that partitions 9 and above can't be mounted.
I had a look in /etc/Hotpup/ and only see 8 "add_device_to_fstab " files. Is this the reason? I thought I might be able to copy and paste to make some others but using TkDiff to compare them shows several differences that confused me so I have left well alone for others more knowledgable to have a look.

I have also attached my modified pmount file and /dev folder

/dev has been modified by adding nodes up to and including 16 for all hdX up to hdg and all sdX up to sdf.

/usr/sbin/pmount has the mods around line 370 and 505 so that pmount shows a complete list of all partitions and the sort order is ascending not descending. I have included partitions up to 16 for both hdX and sdX.


I have NOT included the changes to line 54 of /etc/Hotpup/add_icons_for_device1 and /etc/Hotpup/add_icons_for_device3 which MHHT identified above to fix the icon sort order.

I have NOT included the small fix to the last line of /sbin/probepart to fix the sorting on Pmount.

Both these last two changes need to be made.

Think that's it.
Thanks for your patience.
Hope you get a good night's sleep.

Cheers
Dave

Well this is my test PC and I run a load of distros to learn as well as to "support" a few folk who I have persuaded to use one or other of these.

In fact it's worse than you think because even just on hdb3 I have 8 frugal installs of Puppy.

A few days ago I had:
Windows XP Pro
Windows Seven
Ubuntu 9.04
Debian Lenny
Fedora 10
Arch
Crunchbang
SliTaz cooking
SliTaz 2
Vector Linux
Tiny Core
Sugar
and of course Puppy.

Sleep well. If you can't perhaps start counting Distros. Smile

Thats good news because thats the older version Smile
here's the latest verion
http://www.ttuuxxx.gposil.com/2.14X/iso/214X4.iso
I should be updating it in about another 4 days or so, I don't mind doing it say once a week. Better that way to get things fixed and gives me some time to work on puppy 4.15

Hi ttuuxxx

Is this being mirrored to Eric's .ca site? [now answered while typing]

I'm still using 2.14x3 - seems ok/better than R101, and has become my demo/take everywhere disc

Is there an update script, rather than d/l the whole thing?

No arch theres only a full download of version 4, I think doing a update would be difficult, because I'm changing code here and there, removing files manually and replacing them and making links, Its complicated enough without trying to add something else to mix, lol
maybe updated like every 4 releases, lol Smile

Subject description: MP3
 

Hello, there!

Had the opportunity to have a musical spin with 214X4 tonight (wife's away, kids are asleep Smile ), having a few cold ones Smile Smile , blasting MP3:s into my head phones Smile Smile Smile . I'm very impressed by the BMP, looks like the first winamp I ever ran in very early 90's. On my set-up, choosing the ALSA Output plug-in, instead of the default(?) OSS, seems to give a better sound (half-subjective, though, remember the few cold ones Smile , and add the factual musical style of (punk)-rock) Smile Smile Smile .
A few niggly-wigglies, though: (don't know if they're inherent from 214R, though)
    The play-list objects heavily to the ID3-tags of my native songs, which are non-UTF-8 (probably saved in 8859-1???), see attached pic (the "ignore UTF-8" option in Preferences doesn't work).
    Playlist does not indicate/update when shifting to a new song.
    A bit sensitive to other applications stealing too much of system resources.

I would (if it's at all possible) very, very, much like to be able to use my old winamp-skins, how-to? Confused Cool

Since, (after updating all the required libs) I still can't get the 214X4-XMMS to work, nor the BigBass_XMMS:s (I'm a dedicated user of XMMS/winamp), I must state that I'm perfectly happy with BMP/Beep, though Smile Smile Smile Smile!!!!

FWIW, and cheers and such/

PostPosted: Fri 26 Jun 2009, 22:38    Post subject: Update script  

ttuuxxx would this be an option?

For Devs
1/ Download and install the xdelta-3.0.0.pet available here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=308918&search_id=2047358141#308918
2/ Open xdelta-3.0.0 <Puppy 4.2 | Utility | Xdelta Difference Manager> in my 4.2 install. Would be something similar in your install. (only about 8 pages into this entire thread at the moment so not sure what you are running your builds in )
3/ Drag the currently available iso into the 'old file' pane of the "Xdelta Difference Manager" window.
4/ Drag the newly created soon to be uploaded iso into the 'New or .delta file' pane of the "Xdelta Difference Manager" window.
5/ Click the 'GENERATE' button and a patch file that will change the current iso to the new iso is created.
6/ Upload both the new iso (for those who do not have the current iso) and the patch file (for who do have the current iso and xdelta-3.0.0 installed)

For Users/testers
1/ Download and install the xdelta-3.0.0.pet available here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=308918&search_id=2047358141#308918
2/ Open xdelta-3.0.0 <Puppy 4.2 | Utility | Xdelta Difference Manager> in my 4.2 install. would be something similar in your install.
3/ Drag your current iso into the 'old file' pane of the "Xdelta Difference Manager" window.
4/ Drag the newly downloaded .delta patch-file into the 'New or .delta file' pane of the "Xdelta Difference Manager" window.
5/ Click the 'GENERATE' button and new current iso is created.

There is also the command line option of using xdelta. But I am not sure if it is installed in puppy by default, or where to get it if is not.

Well the most comprehensively optioned and configured version of XMMS has always been the one packaged in Feb 2008 -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=26528
I tried it in Puppy214X4 just now - it works great. No "updated libs" required.

... although I do agree that BMP is a good idea.

In terms of the amount of processing power needed, I have found that pMusic is hard to beat (especially now the errant process problems have been rectified) and at 3kb wont break the bank space wise. For the lower spec machines that suit the 2.6.18.1 kernel this would be ideal, but pSeries apps dont seem to work on 2.14.x?

That's just 3kb for the gui, but the underlying ffmpeg libraries are 1.6MB (compressed) in size!
That's why pMusic doesn't work in Puppy 2 - no ffmpeg libraries.

The lowest size/resource audio applications are -

for MP3: madplay (standard in Puppy) or better still, mpg123
for wav: wavplay or aplay (standard in Puppy)
for ogg: ogg123

and a simple gui to control them is xhippo (25KB compressed) -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=10722

If you're happy to add 650KB worth of application/libraries compressed for a dedicated audio player, lamip+xhippo adds support for AAC/m4a/FLAC/WMA audio formats.

The CPU usage remains low.
