I'm gonna try to recompile all multimedia stuff in 4.3.1 plus other applications, it works so much better than Lupu/Murky, so stable ... I'll make pets from everything and build it from scratch with Woof.

I'll try to upgrade as much as possible this time Smile

EDIT: so far, compiled these: asunder, faac, faad2, libao, libogg, libsamplerate, libsndfile, libtheora, libvorbis, x264 and xvidcore. Currently working on ffmpeg with the 60% faster VP8 thing, xine-lib and gxine will follow Wink

Two packages are out already (yasm and libvpx), that's great already, I expect the end result (which will be some sort of a Kinda Lucid Puppy 2.0) to be way better. Maybe I'll even get it smaller, who knows.

Hi Iguleder

Been playing with both klp005 and Murky002 over the last few days and they are both excellent puppy's.
(firewall not passing sanity test in murky)

Can't wait for a fixed up klp006 - klp does seem slightly snappier than murky, runs slightly cooler and has IMO a better menu layout.

However - luv the name "Murky" and prefer the later Opera setup - nice.

Thanks for all that you do for us noob puppy users - it is appreciated.

Very best regards - Ray

Well ... 005 works more than fine. It's really great, except the printer wizard, which isn't included.

At the moment I'm kinda busy working on my own distro (yeah, I also work on an independent distribution), when I'm done with it I'll work on some KLP improvements, already got many Wink

And thanks for your appreciation. Smile

I'm using it....with the fixes for CUPS, it's great. When ou do update it, can you also have a way to upgrade the 005 to the newer version...would save a lot of time for those who add stuff.

Thanks for your work....it's really appreciated.

I'll post a delta, as I always do.

I've got a bunch of packages, now I just need to make PETs and create some experimental 006.

Thanks....looking forward to it.

BTW, the weather station in pwidgets 2.3.0 doesn't seem to work with this version....but 227 does....that might be just here.

Does the Moo remaster give one the ability to include items added to /root and /etc ?

Would it be hard to include the silverlight (MS's moonlight) plugin into your next release ?

For Dutch television streams almost every broadcast with this plugin, it is hardly impossible to view the latest videostreams.

Probably hard to do for there is not one pup who includes it.

tclhost: yes, it's easy, just create a directory with all your custom files and select it as the extra stuff directory in Moo. If you have <path to that directory/root/lol, it will appear as /root/lol in the remastered puplet and so on.

nancy reagan: I'll check that and maybe include Moonlight.

EDIT: making the first 006 ISO with many goodies. Moonlight won't be included due to its size and because the preview of version 3 is out ... makes no sense to include an old version or some unstable one.

PostPosted: Mon 02 Aug 2010, 04:35    Post subject: Boot Problem on USB
Subject description: Kernel Panic
 

Unlike your previous puplets and others....I am experiencing a problem with a usb bootable version.

I routinely have several puppies on a usb stick so that I can boot different versions. The puppy files are stored in seperate directories.

The following syslinux.cfg is in use:

default puppy
display /klp/boot.msg
prompt 1
timeout 50

F1 /klp/boot.msg
F2 /klp/help.msg

label puppy
kernel /klp/vmlinuz
append /klp/initrd=initrd.gz pmedia=cd

Files have been copied as per the above.

In Kinda 005 and 006 I receive the following message:

kernel panic - not syncing VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-blovk (8,1Cool

I've tried 3 different USB sticks getting the same result.

A fix would be greatly appreciated.

Thom

Change to "append initrd=/klp/initrd.gz" instead of "/klp/initrd=initrd.gz".

I'll make a bootable stick here and check this out.

EDIT: works fine here. It's your syslinux.cfg. If the solution I proposed doesn't solve the problem, check the ISO md5.

superchook wrote:
This computer has a seventeen inch LCD screen which apparently returns the string CMV 17" as its model name. In the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file generated by the wizard the following line in the Section "Monitor" prevents X from starting.

ModelName "CMV 17" AD"

I always have to edit this line to

ModelName "CMV 17 AD"

In klp-004 I select Xorg in the first screen of the Puppy Video Wizard and highlight 1280x1024x24 before entering <Test_X_NOW>
This immediately returns:
Report on X test:
Resolution: x pixels
Horizontal frequency: KHz
Refresh frequency: Hz
Video driver: ati

If you are reading.....

Tab to <Tweak> then ENTER
<Tweak_xorg.conf> Enter
<OK> Enter
does _not_ bring up xorg.conf in an editor but instead takes you back back to:

Okay, just about to take the plunge......

The only solution is to _not_ <Test_X_NOW> but to try Xorg without testing first. The wizard then drops you to the command line after displaying the line:

If X failed to start, type "xorgwizard" to setup X

at the prompt enter

e3ne /etc/X11/xorg.conf

and edit the line

ModelName "CMV 17" AD"

to become

ModelName "CMV 17 AD"

ave and exit the editor. At the prompt enter

xwin jwm

and you arrive at the desktop.

cheers,
Ken

The problem turns out to be that the xorgwizard script contains the line

mp /etc/X11/xorg.conf

but klp unlike pup-431 does not provide the mp text editor. One solution would be to change the line to

e3ne /etc/X11/xorg.conf

klp-006 has the same problem.

cheers,
Ken

PostPosted: Wed 04 Aug 2010, 20:31    Post subject: Problem with delta file  

G'day,

Thanks for sharing your KLPs.

I downloaded the delta file for 005-to-006 but when trying to create the klp-006.iso, I get a message:

xdelta3:target window checksum mismatch: XD3_INVALID_INPUT

A klp-006.iso is produced but is only about 16MB so I'm assuming this is not quite the size klp-006.iso should be?

The checksum for the delta file was OK when I checked it, and my klp-005.iso worked for both a full and frugal install.

I got the xdelta3 error tried in a 4.2 Pup as well as the KLP-005 Pup - I think both these are using the same xdelta3 package which so far has been flawless with many other deltas.

Any ideas to fix my problem?

David S.

Ummm ... I guess you'll have to download the ISO if so. I don't work with deltas myself ... so I have no idea what's wrong,

This thread ended 2 months ago, with neither a bang nor a whimper. Surprised Surprised Surprised
Was KLP suddenly superseded by something better/smaller/faster/ Question Question Question

Why was this thread abandoned faster than the Incas fled Machu Picchu? Confused Confused Confused

As a bumbling pilgrim on his road to enlightenment, I'm feeling dazed and overwhelmed by the passing throng of endless puppy derivations. I'm left bedazzled and reeling by the dizzying array of bling and zing. What to reach out and grasp?

It takes me 7 hours to download an iso, so i'd appreciate knowing has this pup been abandoned already? Shocked Shocked Shocked
Or has it moved to another thread, under another name?

I'm in need of a puppy, ANY PUPPY that will be easy to get working with my brand new ZTE K3571-Z modem (vodaphone 3g) on a PIII 650 MHZ with 720 MB RAM.

All help greatly appreciated.
