Barry Just made a new release of Dpup based on "squeeze". I did ask him if he could update Dpup about a week ago and well he did, Barry did an Excellent Release on this version. Sure a few things need updating/fixing but I'm willing to support it Smile

Release info is found at http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02292
iso --> http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/test/squeezed-4.99.2/sqzd-4.99.2.iso
Devx --> http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/test/squeezed-4.99.2/devx_sqzd_4.99.2.sfs
Extra SCSI and the big analog modem --> http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/test/squeezed-4.99.2/zdrv_sqzd_4.99.2.sfs

157468e3b969a0a7da607d26ae328dcb sqzd-4.99.2.iso
13e504b9d2d02b95d3ff75030df9c40a zdrv_sqzd_4.99.2.sfs

Known issues, no ffmpeg, so basically no mediaplayer as of yet, and zigbert mentioned
"Pburn and Pmusic won't work properly without ffmpeg. Also Ptiming and Pclock will suffer a bit".
But I'll compile it today. and it should be fixed asap.

Hello ttuuxxx - tested Barry's squeezed puppy today but am unable to run through the xorgwizard to get to the desktop just drops me back to prompt - have to use the xvesa? setting - some one else in chat also had this same problem.
I remade squeeze puppy in woof as is and also with pemasu's updated 2.6.38.4 kernel with the same xorgwizard result.

Any thing i need to try/test/report/upload let me know.
cheers.

I did a frugal install of the new dpup squeeze.
Thu 19 May 2011 Operating System: Squeezed Puppy-4.99.2 Linux 2.6.32
0.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C77 [GeForce 8200] (rev a2)
oem: NVIDIA product: MCP77 Board - mcp78pvo Chip Rev

X Server: Xorg Driver: nvidia
X.Org version: 1.7.7
dimensions: 1920x1080 pixels (524x292 millimeters)
depth of root window: 24 planes


Athlon(tm) Dual Core Processor 4850e
Core 0: 2499 1: 2499 MHz

...the above also recorded at '/tmp/root/report-video-glx'.
I installed the proprietary Nvidia driver and have hardware
acceleration,no glxgear though.
I haven't done much else other than add a few pets that I made for
dpup 485 and they work fine, changed the wallpaper too.
Added firefox 4.0.1 too.

Hi stu90 its the Vesa driver your using right not XVesa, They are 2 different things, Vesa is a driver for Xorg, and Xvesa is its own video display, that doesn't use xorg.
My video card in this pc is made by Nvidia, when I run the wizard it uses the nouveau driver, which also drops me to prompt, the nouveau driver in the past has been buggy like this on my pc, It should use either nv or vesa.
I'll delete the nouveau driver and then see if it takes the nv driver.

Hi Stu,

I removed the nouveau_drv.so and it probed and loaded fbdev, so I laughed and tested it and of course it dropped to prompt again, so then I selected nv from the selection where it said "Choose" and boom it worked Smile
Driver "nv" #card0driver
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "G86 [GeForce 8500 GT]"
BusID "PCI:2:0:0"

nouveau driver

This thing should be removed, unless there is a better version.
It has never worked for me with any computer or operating system.

NV driver seems to work for my Nvidia graphic cards.
ATI- Your stuck with Vesa driver, but it always works.

Hi stu90 & bigpup if you remove
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fbdev_drv.so
and
/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nouveau_drv.so
then run the xorgwizard it will find and load the NV driver and actually take you to the desktop Smile
Really the fbdev_drv.so is a waste of space also since directFB is also included in Dpup it just doubles up the FB libs anyways since Directfb supersedes fbdev_drv.so lib.

wow just noticed a new lib that takes 2300kb expanded its called libmathview, basically it a lib so that a plugin is made in abiword for latex. Ummm I think I could live without latex in abiword, should be a repo item, really with 2300 kb saving, I could include all my favorite apps like gcalctool, and ditch the calculators, htop, transmission,lxtasx

There is a really good writeup on your Video at this archlinux page, about 1/2 down this page you'll find the info on it.

This Squeeze Dpup is kind of very different from Wary or Quirky or Lupu or ...

It does show the Desktop but first time it told me it failed something on the ntfs so it set it as read only.

Looking at pictures and seeing music video clips are not working as expected.

Seamoneky works good though. It gave me LAN connection straight away so that is good.

What else should I test? oops it is 10.43 PM so I got to bed now soon

In Squeeze and Knoppix nouveau works better for me than nVidia's proprietary driver.
