This is a great application - thank you, HP.
Here are a few suggestions:
Since it is capable of running on junk HW, I would pay more attention to 'FULL' installation, as requested by wachsmc. This permits running with 128Mb strips, of which there are legions out there. Being a compact distro itself, an old 4Gb drive is adequate for many hours of recording, especially if the motion detection is operating.
Notwithstanding, when I first installed to HD, I received GRUB Error 25. I had partitioned two ext2 + hda3 as swap, which caused the confusion because hda2 is expected to be swap. Normally, booting can deal with this, so the elegant solution would be a small code rewrite. The cludge is obvious for the time being, although a simple editorial job on menu.lst or elsewhere didn't work for me, requiring a full deletion with System Rescue!

It would be helpful to delete the accursed Seamonster - Firefox is the majority preference amongst penguins, although I favour Opera which is faster, smaller and has more adjustable parameters. Puppy is the only(?) distro with SM as the sole default.

I would suggest that the default video might be 640x480VESA (as does P3.01) enabling those piles of old 14" monitors to be reclaimed. After all, when buying a surveillance system, some kits still supply 10" monitors! Plugging and unplugging monitor choices is hardly quantum mechanics.

Always a good idea to run dots or w.h.y. across the screen whenever something is loading - esp. early releases; someone is bound to possess HW that has crashed and be unaware, otherwise.

And finally, what happened to the taskbar?
For a developer, these items are probably elementary.

i'll have the double cheese burger and the md5sum to go with that thanks. hold the fries. i get .
Code:
# md5sum wd2.iso
5772d5c93cc8a15979bd4545e5214a9c  wd2.iso


edit. i think one of your staff has run off with the enhancements. you cant trust the pimply kids these days
Edit2. Ho¡ md5sums are inside the iso.
Got 17 errors "operation not permitted" while copying the contents of the iso to disc. All errors were for html files.
I assume that the enhancements are now inside the iso too.

reason no CD on eeePC

just copied all folders and file to top / and booted with

Code:
title casper/watchdog on sdc1
root (hd1,0)
kernel /casper/vmlinuz1 phome=casper psubdir=casper
initrd /casper/initrd1.img


got a log way through the boot with lots of things scrolling by then this:

Code:
sd 2:0:0:0: Attached scsi disk sdc
Done.
      Check root = bootarg cat /proc/cmdline
      or issig modules, devices: cat /proc/modules ls /dev
     
ALERT! does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.3-4) Built-in shell (ash)

Enter "help" for a list of built-in commands.

/bin/sh : can't access tty: job control turned off

(initramfs) _ <<<(blinking cursor)     

(had to sit at a desk (puke) and copy/write this on paper then type it in here) how uncool Rolling Eyes ) (yeah i did try photographing it with my phone but the resolution/focus makes it hard to read)
dont know how to proceed.

was also thinking maybe watchdog can go into dpup

Same problem here, if'm trying to run that Live CD Crying or Very sad (and yes, I think it's the right place to post this Wink, or in the thread posted by Aarf, but this makes not a big difference to me )

@ Aarf
same problem here, trying to run from HDD Crying or Very sad

I really like to try this program, but the "new version" was postet in Aug 2007 and the last post of the dev was in Jul 2008 here.

Also it seems to me, it's Debian now, not Puppy.

It's said "Hope is dying at last". I'm not hopeful very much.

Does anybody know where I can get the old version v1, based on Puppy?
doubleburger only provides v2 Crying or Very sad

Thanks

Rolf

@ Aarf, maybe you are also interested in Motion (a pet)?
It's working a little bit for me, this means, it makes a picture if there is a movement in the observed area. Then stops or sometimes segmentation fault.
Must play more with it.
