Cant really get font display as I would like it with Iron, and the lack of cache control bothers me. Where is the cache? How can it be kept to a set size? etc etc....

For look and feel, give me FF4-B7

I have been trying all day to build the ATI Catalyst Driver in Lucid (luci-237). It would build successfully in Karmic Puppy but never has in Lucid. Here is the posting.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=62008

We have been using the open-source radeon driver which functions well and provides hardware acceleration. By my testing the Catalyst fglrx driver provides about twice the frame rate and I am wondering if it is what we need to get compiz working with Radeon cards.

Thank you.



I installed 237 to a 4gb flash drive and installed the
kernel_src_L4-2.6.33.2-patched.sfs and the luci_devx_237.sfs, then ran
ati-driver-installer-10-10-x86.x86_64.run from the prompt, when it was
finished I entered "aticonfig --initial" and then "xwin" to get back
to the desktop.

edit: google earth works good.

Subject description: Samba
 

Playdayz,

Ok, I'll weigh in here on Samba. This is not to plug my Samba package. However I will point out that the packages I posted support all of Samba with the exception of cifsupcall (too many dependencies) and Swat. Swat was left out because it is a security risk, and it is being dropped by the Samba developers.

There is one issue with the Lupu puppies that should be addressed. Samba cannot share a printer via cups in Lupu, unless a workaround is employed, and the workaround is clunky. Something in Lupu, maybe cups, sets the wrong directory permissions on /var/spool/cups on every boot. Windows client computers trying to send a print job need to write to this directory, and the permissions will not allow it.

Hello everybody. I'm checking out the latest edition Puppy on my ancient Dell Latitude C840 laptop. Everything works fine except my ps/2 external mouse. Debian Stable detected the mouse automatically. How can I force Puppy to see it? Thanks!

Subject description: nvidia driver
 

I installed 237 to a 4gb flash drive and installed the
kernel_src_L4-2.6.33.2-patched.sfs and luci_devx_237.sfs, then I went
to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us and got the
driver for my Geforce 286 GT.
I exited to the prompt and ran the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.21.run file
and when it finished I let it update my xorg.conf file, then ran
xorgwizard and chose the nvidia driver.

That's different than I was using. I will look for it. Thanks..

Billtoo. You steered me right. I have been using, and even posted in Quickpet, the kernel source that Barry posted for 2.6.33.2 (kernel_src-2.6.33.2-patched.sfs). Barry compiled the original kernel, but 01micko compiled the version of the kernel that we have used since the release of Lucid 5.0. The version kernel_src_l4-2.6.33.2-patched.sfs looks like it was posted by 01micko. I thought he had used the same sources as Barry. It may be that one version is good for one thing and the other for other things????

At any rate, it worked. Would you believe I had just decided to let it go when I read your message Wink Now if I can just figure out the packaging, we will be in business. Well, you are already in business. Thanks again.

Glad to help Smile I spied a message that 01micko left this morning where he mentioned the kernel_src_L4-2.6.33.2-patched.sfs and where to get it so I thought I give it a shot.

I have no idea how to package the driver into a pet but I'm guessing that 01micko does.

Samba-TNG can serve CUPS printers to Windows clients (with one change to the smb.conf) and the download is a bit smaller Wink

One note on luci-237 video, I was getting an average 250 frames in glxgears with luci-232, it has jumped to 270 frames, so yet another improvement! Very Happy

What is your video card and what video driver are you using?
You should be able to get much better readings with the proper video driver setup.
I have an old Nvidia card with the proper Nvidia driver and get glxgears frame readings of above 5,000. With the proper setup, any video card should give glxgears frame readings of 1,200 or more.
