Just loaded Fluppy 013 to an HP Omnibook XE4400S with a 2Ghz CPU and 1GB RAM and it is running slowly.

It is especially noticeable in Midori and Seamonkey.

Please see attached pdiag file.

Sure appreciate any helpful observations as our son is using this notebook for school and the performance is frustrating him.

Thanks!


Anyone have a moment to take a peek at the pdiag file, please?

Sure would like to get our son's Fluppy 13 pc running better.

Willem, ik kan wèl uw weerzin verstaan. Wees verstandig zegt men maar hun computer is die niet.

I can understand your reluctance.

It happened to me once in DOS. I was running a shareware spreadsheet program, which I had registered. I was having trouble with my mouse and accidentally selected the wrong screen resolution. Bye bye monitor!


That said. Aside from that, I don't believe there is much danger of hardware being damaged by these commands. You have already done the most dangerous part of installing Puppy when you used the xorg wizard.

Final:

Downloaded Fluppy 13 ISO to Linux partition, Ext2 and made CD.

Started with the CD. Firstly, like before, could not contact Internet but after restarts including all "savings" ..... which it did not find or respect at return, although I saw them on HD ..... sometimes could get Internet, other times not, same as with former CDs.

I rest my case.

Sorry to have bothered you all with my several postings; the cause of my problems clearly is: HARDWARE.

The harddisk gave "undefinable" error in GParted Live and needed 2 runs of entire lowlevel formatting to get rid of its bug, of which I have the strong impression it has been caused by something rotten in the mainboard (the moment I attach a slave disk, the whole system stops and the error on master disk is present again - i/o error partition table, new partition table no help, only cleanup is at least one "lowlevel format" using manufacturer's tool.

For the time being, I have puppy 525 kind of working for at long as it may last, on this old P2. As soon as I have a moment of lesser lazyness (I am not getting any younger) I may insert another mainboard from my junkbox .... have a more modern one ready there, IDE 2.6MHz with 2x512MB DDR RAM inserted.

Subject description: CUPS Misbehaving ... again
 

Clean Frugal load of Fluppy 013 on an Acer Aspire laptop.

CUPS is generating this error:

Printer Driver: HP LaserJet P1006 Foomatic/foo2xqx (recommended)
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs, published.

pfind shows foo2xqx is loaded:

/usr/bin/foo2xqx-wrapper
/usr/share/foo2xqx


printer-scanner-5.sfs is in the BootManager list to load at startup.

Any ideas, please?

I just did a frugal install of fluppy 13 to my toshiba nb200 netbook. I think the default icewm theme is great, the applications included seem good, and also the gtk themes are much improved.

I have one problem though, when closing the lid, the netbook does not suspend. On battery power or AC. The appropriate option is ticked in the power manager thingie.

Fluppy 12 does work fine.

Is this working properly for anyone else in 13?

Has your P1006 worked in previous Fluppy installs with the printer-scanner-5.sfs?

As far as I know printer-scanner-5.sfs did not exist prior to 013.

There was -3 and then -4, or some number series like that which appeared to change with the version of Fluppy.

The P1006 had worked in the past and something was changed which caused it to stop working on that computer, then it worked briefly again with a new version of Fluppy, then failed again.

I have attempted to document the circumstance of failure with CUPS each time.

CUPS has been the single most irksome bane of my otherwise generally happy experience with Puppy for years.

Once again, this is not the fault of CUPS. It appears that the developer was attempting to fix a problem that arose in printer-scanner-3.sfs by importing a related package from parts unknown without checking its dependencies.

As I have said before, I respect all that CUPS does, but am troubled that is is so vulnerable to unintentional 'sabotage'.

Is there a solution to the current problem or must we await Fluppy 014?
