Thanks I give it a try. Writing from within Snow Puppy now and it works.

But both Frisbee and the other network blinky shows up on tray.

It could be something wrong with my ISP but it is very surprising because when I failed for 30 minutes to request a lease release of the ip to get a new one and did not work and then when I rebooted into Fluppy then that worked for say a half hour and that one failed too. No Ethernet card was seen by the software not even after me shut it all down and started anew but as soon I started up the other Acer that one got IP instantly automatically using Fluppy.

Then tested older Acer again and it still failed.

Then I went to sleep and in the morning the old Acer just worked and then I shut it down and was away for some 4 hours and when I came back it failed to see the ethernet card again and then I tested Fluppy and that one worked and now I have tested both Snow and Mijn Puppy and both get IP and just works again.

So hopefully it is the IP locking the MAC address on my old Acer and thus allowing the new Acer them not having it in their database.

I wonder why it fails that way. Can it be that your Snow send requests that they are not used to. By having too requests so simultaneously maybe I trigger some protection at the ISP????

What else can explain the very odd behavior?

Anyway thanks for trying to help.

Pemasu need your help.

Your Snow Puppy manage to accept that I use an external screen that is 4:3 while the built in screen on my Acer D250 is 16:9 more likely having 1024x600 instead of 1024x768.

Now your Snow does show everything in 1024x768 despite it uses JWM desktop window.

Jemimah thought that was the problem. So how or what did you change that allow it to be that flexible which is totally unique among all the puppies I've tested.

Hope you can remember what you set differently about size of display on screen?

Thanks! Just a very short test. Past midnight and me should go up early.

This one did not allow the window manager to stay within 1024x768 it makes every program go 1024x600 instead. You one month older 05 was better for my computer. And this Geequee something is a new learning curve Smile Sorry whining. I keep the older one. It is my main puppy I use at least 12 hours each day Smile

Nooby. Sorry to hear 005 didnt behave as previous. I havent changed anything which should effect.

About default image viewer. Changing it is easy.

Go to /usr/local/bin. Right click defaultimageviewer file. Open it as text. Change the word qeegie whichever you want.
Sameway you can change other default applications also. In Snow Pupppy and in any other puppy.

I have viewnior, mtpaint, gimp, fotoxx and pictureviewer to choose.

Oh is it that easy Smile Then I sure will try it later today. Will be away some 4 hours or so Smile

But every program was 1024x600 while in the older Snow it was 1024x768 a huge difference for me.

Could I have changed from JWM to something else without me noticing the look change? A mystery Smile

Edit I give it another chance. From geegie to viewnior and see what happens.

Nooby et al.
Snow Puppy-005 is reuploaded. I fixed the problem with firstrun personalize settings wizard. Also Alsa Wizard works now properly.

For better 3g modem handling, I installed zzz_scripts_simple_bk-20110204.pet and it needed more hacking, before Lucid based Puppy swallowed it.
Also new firstrun-1.8.2.pet didnt behave as before. It is not straight woof compliant. But now firstrun wizard should work also.

I suggest Snow Puppy redownload and reinstallation if you have downloaded Snow Puppy-005 before this day.

Yes now I have 1024x768 but I did forgot to change to Intel driver the Firefox display of Murga forum split up the lines when I scroll down fast.
F5 clear it up though.

Thanks for fixing whatever it was that your did I felt unsure of if I got it.

Was about to try a bit of Puppy hopping (like distro hopping but more puppy orientated)
and was going for Fluppy
I went for Snowpuppy as I have not tried it.

Glad I did.

You get bling
bling is good
You get loads of good stuff from Jemimahs excellent Fluppy
and Puppy Lucid updated from an earlier version
My flash streaming is working again, so that earlier version
works for me too Laughing

Now gonna put it on a USB and try on a netbook

SnowPuppy feels good, looks good
and it is good.

Things I liked:
Extra fonts and bling (puppy poodle power)
xfe file manager - don't remember seeing that before.
. . . so much good stuff . . .

Q: Is there something in Filezilla that gFTP can not do?

Well done Pemasu. Nice. Smile

Lobster. Thank you of the compliments. About Filezilla. It is more user friendly. Filezilla has better visual categorization for viewing folders and files. As default it also supports multiple file transfers simultaneously. And it has been reliable when I have uploaded files to the ftp server. I just had problems with gFtp for obscure reasons. But basically both do their jobs aka transfer files. It is just preferences of what you like. Now you have opportunity to compare them. They dont take much of space.

Yes. Snowpuppy has good properties from Fluppy and Lucid Puppy. Thank you jemimah and playdayz. It has also a lot of pet package additions straight from woof and from the forum.

I would like to know how Snow Puppy behaves in netbooks. There has been reports of succesfull installs. I have tested Snow Puppy only in one netbook.
I am glad if you report how did it go with your netbook.

As I remember I have only tested it in my main _Netbook Acer D250, the D255 are too noisy for my taste so that one is a reserve to have on trips in case I get robbed or drop it on the road Smile

Snow works very well on my gear. I've used daily since I first heard of it.

So thanks pemasu and to all of you

The only think that fails for me at times are that different puppies set time one hour differently but that could be something I am responsible not getting the text on how to do set up.

Maybe for the next edition.
Started to have problems (this may be my corrupted bookmarks
or the ATI Crystal driver. I got a WSOD (control + alt + backspace and then ran xorgwizard to deal with) This was an early issue with Lucid as was the pale washed out screen that appeared. These problems are solved in 5.2 even though there may be others.
Some of these issues are solved in Lucid 5.2 - so I am back in that (using the same RW-DVD)

I understand why you are using the earlier Lucid and quite frankly I prefer your setup (being bigger is not an issue for my set up with 2 gig of memory).

I hope you get a few more constructive testers, you deserve that.
I will certainly return Smile

Lobster. Ati has been troublesome for me also. I use intel graphics mostly but sometimes I test my dual graphics ATI HD5650. It would like to have ATI Catalyst 11.1 fglrx.ko kernel module. But...Playdayz could not get it to compile with 2.6.33.2 kernel and I could not get it to compile with 2.6.35.7 kernel. I get washout screen when I go to the console state and the screen stays blank. Otherwise 2.6.35.7 works better for me.
And I have same problem with Lucid Puppy 5.2 with my ATI graphics.
