Oh how I dislike the Complete Configuration Wizard.

Why can't we have a keyboard and country setter alone ?

Video resolution is set fine at first run, then run the complete configuration to set country/keyboard and chaos ensues, resetting the video resolution again it always goes to right resolution but moves drive icons, desktop icons and loses tray !


Wish it did for me tasmod Crying or Very sad Sad Crying or Very sad , three out of my four test and work boxes need the CCW to be usefull.

Although Barry's latest (wary090) has fixed it for two of them (last troublemaker is yet to have it installed as it is at another location). Hopefully when in it's added into woof my troubles will go away.

I hope I did not misspeak. Jemimah is advising but not necessarily creating a miraculous chat client Wink

A quick question: playdayz, do you have any plans to make a retro flavor of 5.2?


Iguleder, No. No use trying to do what Wary already can do better.

Are you thinking of a Squeeze retro/legacy?

-----------------------------------------------------------------

BTW, I just reduced Pidgin 2.7.1 from 14MB to 8MB by the simple expedient of removing 22MB worth of locales. I personally don't regard locales as "bloat" but 22MB seems like a lot. Anyway they could be put into a pet for those who want them. 8MB is still too big probably but it's a start to having a full-functional Chat program.

We should have the best of both worlds for 5.2, I think, unless I am missing something.

No, but I want it to have two flavors from 010 and on - one with the LTS 2.6.32.x (which is also used by Debian Squeeze and Ubuntu 10.4), patched to appear as 2.6.32 so kernel updates can be rolled in silently without any difference to the user Smile

The second with the kernel you use, Barry's 2.6.35.7, but if I dislike it too much I might compile my own. I already did that once but then you mentioned Barry's intention to do that too and I decided to leave the kernel work to him.

I'm waiting for someone to take over Squeeze, I think it's time for me to retire and be a kernel guy, bug killer and packager ... maybe once 010 is released. I'm out of cool ideas.

It installs and operates fine on other Puppies but not on luci230.
I'm running 5.1.1 now with Java.

There is a luci-231 posted.

It has Shinobar's 8d4 first-run dialog
Iguleder's repaired cpu_freq-scaling that works for quad core
And Openbox and fbpanel as default.

My thinking is that openbox is receiving more and more diverse development., plus jwm has several problems we have discovered.

As long there is a sfs for pidgin, it doesn't matter that all locales are included.
Well yes I am speaking in case of a frugal install.

PostPosted: Thu 14 Oct 2010, 21:45    Post subject: sfs install pet  

@playdayz
there is already a simple sfs installer pet in the system from dejan555 (http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=892954261&t=40779) called sfsinstall-0.1.2.pet, Once installed, it appears as part of the right-click menu on a xxx.sfs. Is this what you are looking for?

regards

Maybe scsijon, Thanks for mentioning it. That is the third different approach we have found--so I will take a close look. Thanks again.

Grabbed an old Windows 98 box off the shelf tonight.....already tried both kernel versions of Wary and both versions of Squeeze.Might as well try this too. Smile

Luci-231 live pfix=ram in this powerful 433 mhz Celeron box. Initial boot had working internet and sound.........and a totally distorted display.Did the old three fingered salute and got back to xorgwizard,reset the resolution to 1024x768x16 and working fine now.
Just for the record,none of the five versions I've tried would work at my usual 1024x768x24.

Been happily using Luci 230 (with the 4 Firefox beta) for a few days. So very happy to try 2.3.1
In fact the only problem in the Firefox beta was not being able to easily use add ons - feature is coming . . .

First of all the transition to openbox from JWM seemed seamless.
What will happen with the JWM/Icewm switcher? Do we have or require other window managers
in the base 5.2?
Using Openbox must have involved some serious work.

I did get the double menubar settings enclosed (after trying many features - maybe someone can confirm what starts it off )
Restarting x cured it.

I have updated the 5.2 Lucid Maverick wiki page (I actually think of it as Luci Meerkat)
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Puppy52

I used Quickpet to successfully install xorg drivers and google earth

Larry you have incorporated shinobars efforts very well.
All credit to both of you working together.

Pmusic has weird box text after it in the menus - see graphic attached
- reported this before - it is to do with the font settings

All seems on track Cool
Hope to hear how others get on Smile
