Ok, I tried:

Sometimes it's just the backlight that doesn't come back on. You may be able to get by pressing ctrl-alt-f1 then ctrl-alt-f4. Otherwise you can disable lid suspend using acpi-control.


It didn't work. I then tried Fn+F9 and it blanked the screen. I pressed it again but it didn't unblank it. I touched the power button then Fn+F9 and the screen came to life. It had shut down the wireless connection and I couldn't get it back either by clicking on the icon or entering configuration and pressing connect. I had to reboot to get it working again. I did notice it reporting my internet connection as Eth0 for my Ethernet, which is not connected, and Eth1 for my wireless connection which does connect and works fine. I would have expected to see wlan0 for my wireless connection.

How do I do

Jemimah I coudln't get bluetooth to work either although it does work on puppeee. Well it seemed to be working as it connected but I couldn't transfer files between my Samsung Omnia and the Kogan.

In the past I have transferred files between the Omnia and puppeee on the eee pc 4G.

Strange?

Neither did I.

It's amazing what you can find on the web if you look hard enough.

Sub_title: Solution to Chrome and Bookmarks

The problem is that Puppy Browser is not actually small and I'm not willing to have no browser. The small Midori is not stable enough yet. Chrome is by far the fastest browser, has a good UI for netbooks, and is widely supported.


Yes, jemimah, I do understand and have no problem. As far as the bookmarks and chrome, my solution was to set the home page to the bookmarks file. Now when chrome starts up the bookmarks are right there. If I want to see them to go to place, just click on the home page. One thing nice about learning curves, they are conquerable and learn something.

I have tried the window managers and icewm wins for me.

I will look around for clock or tray files and see if I can figure out how to set it to 24 hour format. If I have any luck, then I will post the solution.

Click the netboook icon next to the start menu. Then uncheck, "suspend when lid is closed".

The bluetooth version is exactly the same. Do you get an error, or it just hangs?

You need to edit the IceWM config file. On the menu it's Desktop->Manually Edit IceWM Configuration.

Search for
Code:
#  Clock Time format (strftime format string)
 TimeFormat="%I:%M %p"


Then change it to
Code:
#  Clock Time format (strftime format string)
 TimeFormat="%R"

Sub_title: Time Format for 24 hour
 

Thank you, Jermimah. While you were posting, I was playing with the manual edit of ICEWM preferences. I also found the desktop change menu for ICEWM preferences. It did not work for me. But, the help mentioned strftime man page. I checked the man page and find the format code needed was %H:%M. I did the editing and it worked. I am posting this using Fluppy. Thank you very much for the quick response

Well, that idea didn't get far- I can't unzip it. I'm trying to unzip it using Puppy 431. How does everybody do it?

I'm getting messages like "cannot find zipfile directory....", and "Either this file is not a zip file, or..."

Sub_title: Fan/Temperature control for Acer Aspire 1
 

I did some searching and found in the past the Aspire 1 needed the acerdhf.ko kernel module to control the fan and temperature. The same module is used by Acer Aspire One. I did find a web site with the source code and tried to compile via the make command the module using Puppy 5.01 Lucid. It did compile, but no luck. When I tried to insert it into Fluppy, I got an "invaild module format" from modprobe. I have to search some more. There may be a later source. The only pets I found were for Puppy 4.3 versions. I found that I did have the latest source version 0.5.23 for kernel 2.6.30+

Is the md5sum correct? Xarchive should be able to open it.

You have to compile it for the Fluppy kernel. The Puppeee devx (you've got to rename it) and Barry's Quirky kernel source should work . I will upload the Fluppy kernel config when I get a few minutes to work on it.
http://puppeee.com/files/Puppeee%20RC3/eee_devx_480.sfs

If you send me a link to the source for the acer module, I'll add it to Fluppy003.

@jemima- Oops! Grovel, grovel- you are right. I've been getting a bit careless about checking MD5 lately, I've never had a wrong one, seems to be a waste of time. Not any more...
