ok...

On my radeon box in the shed, 3G modem...

At initial boot everything was fine, sound and all, connected with my Huawei e159 flawlessly.

Installed the 'zzz' (luci ver) and rebooted. The 3G was ok but sound was mute. Different result to quirky, so it may be kernel related, will try Insidious.

Cheers

hmmm... Insidious seems identical to quirky wirh needing to modprobe the 3G 'option' driver... but sound is ok.. weirdness and fun continues.. Twisted Evil

_____________________________________________________________________

later...

Just testing luci-240 on the ol' P3, 256 RAM.. can eject CD Cool ... sound is configurable only by alsawizard, which without zzz is muted anyway,, will install and see..

more later...

No good with the reconnection of wireless or the sound with zzz Sad . I'll take a look tomorrow.

I have 237 installed on my lightningstruck Intel PC. Windows will freeze since a lightning destroyed the graphics card on the motherboard. The double core CPU and 1Gb RAM works OK. I found Puppy 5.1.1 on the net and installed it with the VESA driver. It worked just fine. Since then I have upgraded and now I am running Luci-237 with all the bells and whistles. Gimp, Skype, Firefox, Opera 11, Java_jre, Open Office loads as SFS. Network (ADSL) and sound is working fine.
I had the same setup in my laptop and it all worked well, until I decided to upgrade to Luci-240. I lost my wireless network connection and it refuses to load the Wine SFS. The tray icon for sound has a red cross on it, but sound works fine.
I was planning to upgrade my desktop as well, but decided to let it be as it is.
Why mend something that is not broken.
In spite of that I have to keep on running Windooze on my laptop I am very happy with Puppy. I have the infamous Atheros wireless in the laptop.
And a big thank you to you guys who have put so much effort in building such a tremendous Operating System.

as small and fast pdf viewers goes Evince by far blows away epdfview, epdfview doesn't use locales, well the .desktop doesn't include them Smile
epdfview doesn't do slideshows, It doesn't display comics or impress documents. This version I had to highly hack to get it to work right, Usually you need gnome, python and tons of libs. So Its not as full featured as a fully bloated version, but on the other hand I made it small enough to replace efdview Smile
To run it first delete epdfview usr/bin/epdfview because epdfview opens pdfs even if your using the menu in evince.

You only need the first package to run it, the others are language files, documents, and dev files
enjoy

Sub_title: Full install problem
 

I have a full installation of luci-240 on a 25GB partition, which is using less than 2GB. However, the partview icon on the desktop is showing only about 770MB available, and is giving a warning that I am running out of space. Attached is the partview report. The partition in question is sdb7.

Incidently, both my frugal and full installations have the same sound problem that has already been reported.

Also, as I was making this post. I got a message that there is insufficient space to copy to puppypin and the desktop froze. Had to do a Ctrl/Alt/Backspace to get to a prompt and restart.

Unusual problem for a full hd installation to run out of space. Apparently, there is some confusion as to available ram as opposed to available hd space.

Very nice
about twice the size but very useful
- does it display Impress presentations? Is that right?
Works well for me, be interested how those on slower machines fare.
Epdfview is very slow at rendering on older hardware from what I remember.

Thanks Ttuuxxx - at least a pet if not a replacement?
Do you do databases too? Wink

Its suppose to do the Impress presentations also, but I don't have one to test it with.
As for databases that might be a thing for 2.14X, I've spent about a week or 80+hrs on 5.2 and feel like its time to go back to 2.14X. I might spend a few more hours on it tomorrow and then the switch. But Its nice that they include the blue-moon icon theme, I feel at home with it Smile all its missing is the VW background, lol

For the first year out of 3, we had to do it by hand for the diploma in web management that I went back to School for. I hated doing sites by hand, dreamweaver was great, actually at that time they weren't using Linux in the college for the front end of the websites, They were using dreamweaver and the server side was Linux, But I introduced them to puppy and Geany/Bluefish and we started using them for coding sites. But it couldn't be Official because MS has agreements with Aussie schools that they have to run windows, to get a better deal on prices. Anyways it opened a few eyes Smile

PostPosted: Tue 30 Nov 2010, 14:57    Post_subject: new version of mtpaint3.34.59  

I compiled a new version of mtpaint 3.34.59 in lupq
and have been testing for a few hours and like it.

Download
http://www.datafilehost.com/download-d2908bcb.html

compiled with
Code:
./configure --bindir=/usr/bin  release intl


It now has ability to open damaged files and
another feature is pressing key E shows a palette of colors.
__________________________________________________________

There is a new version of pcd 1.3 however I have found that
there is a significant bug. When user launches pcd 1.3 without an
Audio CD inserted there is no list of tracks in window possible.

The solution is to have the Audio CD inserted at the time of pcd launch.

Why does nl_BE@euro work in squeeze and fluppy and not in lucid?

Because they have ISO8859-15, but Luci/Lucu/LupQ, like Swiss, do not have it in /usr/share/X11/locale.
Thank you.
I had the misunderstanding that if there was one iso8859-XX they were all there.
Learned something again. Cool
Well until I now discovered a very worrying issue about accented characters in file names.
Agreed not related to Lucid but more to puppy.
If I remember well, in 3.XX and I think also 4.XX the worst that happened was a warning message that the file name wasn't UTF compliant or something the like. I could work with those files and copy them without losing the name with accented characters.
Just by accident and to my horror I see that I have such files who's name are changed really, I verified in Windows as well.
In the panel it is seen that I already did a rename to the correct ones.

So I wonder now how save it is to use puppy in a National Language Environment.
Code:
# ls -l |grep financ
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root    10342 2003-02-04 12:49 aan eigenaars financiële situatie en jaar afsluiting 2002.sxw

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root    10031 2003-06-26 02:23 aan IPI (03) financiÃle situatie en jaar afsluiting 2002.sxw
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root     9708 2004-06-12 23:11 aan IPI (05) financiÃle situatie en jaar afsluiting 2002.sxw
#
Just one more thing.
These files are old and have not been used or opened. So the more worrying it is, that the name has changed.

The number the task tray shows is complex. Barry add more informations on the Freemem applet.
  1. Check your PUPMODE:
    Code:
    cat /etc/rc.d/PUPSTATE

  2. Mounted speces:
    Code:
    df -m

  3. Free memory and swap:
    Code:
    free
They give a hint.
