Been playing with 4.3 Beta 1

Officially released and announced by Barry here

Been trying to get PHP working
Hiawatha was OK - found a PHP pet
but no luck - does it have to be recompiled for
the new kernel and this Puppy version?

The Imagination DVD Slideshow maker is excellent
Better (but larger) and more intuitive than Fullerscreen (also available.
Did anyone get sound working with Imagination (linking to slide?) How?

The time web syncing took an hour of my UK time (erroneously) Boo! Embarassed oh and it (and the change time option told me the screen might go blank AFTER it went blank - so code in wrong position?

Quisp now seems to be using Hiawatha instead of its own server?
Or am I confused again?

Anyway so far very good Smile

Not had a chance to run through it all but i have found that "help" does not seem to work in Abiword, i have only run it in fix=ram.
I will install it to harddrive over the weekend and give it a good try.

Ignore help does not work, i realized i did not have the internet configured Embarassed

Downloaded both versions , running live with usb save files. P3 (800 mhz) 256 mb ram w/ 1gb swap.

Kernel 2.6.29.6.........Opera 10 appeared to install but would not launch from menu or terminal. No error message only "command not found". Firefox 3.5 installed and launched but on the transfer settings page, during setup, froze entire computer requiring hard reboot.

Kernel 2.6.25.16.......both Opera 10 and Firefox installed fine and are working correctly.

On both kernels Pstream will not launch Gxine. However, Gxine works when launched from the menu.Am planning to download Mplayer and test further.

PstreamTV is failing to start Gxine.

Ah, Gxine is rolled back to 0.5.9,

Trio's latest is modded to accommodate 0.5.904.

Cheers

I believe he will post a patch soon Smile

########

quick and dirty fix

open /usr/local/pstreamvid/funcions by right clicking and selecting Open As Text

Comment out (place a "#" at start of line) lines 19,20,21,22,25

It should look like the screeny


No Mick, please don't do that, you'll disable the "off" fullscreen. Just delete the --geometry ... 200% , then it should be good. i'll upload v 1.3 in pstreamvid thread to revert back to gxine 0.5.9

thanks

Hi, just to report that I had exactly the same experience as James C with Firefox.
Dies horribly with the Kernel 2.6.29.6 when you try to go past the transfer settings page (I'm sure I read somewhere about how to disable that check when Firefox first runs, that'd be worth a try if anybody knows how).
Seems to be working fine with the Kernel 2.6.25.16
Will start playing with other stuff.

Regards, Jon

Previously when the computer went down while using puppy such as from a power outage, our customers got the black screen with no directions what to do when they rebooted and they would call us for support. We are working on a solution for this but having this corrected in Puppy 4.3 would really help. The preferred solution would be an automatic recovery but another solution would be some verbage on the black screen telling them how to recover.

downloaded and burned the 4.3beta1 to a CD. Booted fine off the puppy 4.3beta1 CD. Formatted a USB flash drive to ext3, with Gparted.

Couldn't install onto the flash drive. Puppy universal installer said it was ext4 and wouldn't install.

Also tried formatting to ext2 and got the same message. Tried this with both kernels.

I could be doing something silly and messing it up, but this is how i usually do a clean puppy install to a flash drive.

Installed 2.6.29.6 to pc slave drive, full install. No problem.

Doesn't have any "ath_pci" drivers...a bit of a problem.

Gxine and Mplayer1rc2_412 work fine playing mp4 videos.

I still have to copy folder /lib/firmware/b43 from another puppy in order to make the b43 module works.

Great work Barry! Very Happy

Please use the previous background, the puppy 4.3 one. It looks a lot more clean and professional than "superpuppy" IMHO. I liked the previous theme better also.

Medit still segfaults.

Gparted works on first boot. When I create a pupsave and reboot, it segfaults when I try to run it. Haven't tried this before so I thought I should mention it.
