Regarding drive mounting and rox maybe give ymount a try?

Hi stu90,
I have changed some lines of code to let ymount work without rox
version 1.3 (sc0ttman's 1.2 is producing just segfaults with me)

Note, version 1.3 will open emelfm2 just once and put the main window of ymount always on top

I am uploading it here only because it will be interesting for guydogs only.

Enjoy

to make videos resize in mplayer, you can use
#mplayer -zoom video.avi
or you can put zoom="1" in your ~/mplayer/config file

I'm going to use this puplet now, it's working great and looks cool!

The 64-bit port project is almost done! Very Happy

I made a new Busybox package and now I'm working on the kernel. I want to use 2.6.32.x as the first kernel, because it's the most stable kernel around (well, it's the "longterm" one).

Once the kernel is ready, I'll need to find out how to build small and static packages for grep and other stuff in the initramfs.

I hope it won't be too problematic to build all the packages built on Guy Dog (for i486) on the x86_64 port, because of all the missing stuff.

Anyway, this is great already. Almost the whole Guy Dog can be ported to any architecture easily now Smile

EDIT: I'm extremely tired from working so hard, so I decided to take a break and do something I've been thinking about for a very long time - a Trinity for Puppy.

Some of you probably remember that I made a Trinity SFS about a year ago if I remember right, from Debian packages.

Now I'm trying to go the other way and build Trinity inside Puppy, so it's both smaller and more ... native. Currently, I'm building just the Trinity base (qt3, arts, tqtinterface, kdelibs and kdebase), which means, a basic desktop with a file manager, a terminal emulator and a text editor. I want it to be smaller than 30 MB. Applications should be extremely easy to add, since the Trinity developers are doing some extremely good work - they ported many components to CMake.

Using Guy Dog's pdf viewer, how can I scroll down?

The text was small, so I magnified the image until about 4/5 of it was off the bottom of the screen. But everything I tried for scrolling down just switched to the top of the next page. Sad Anyone figured out how to scroll down to read the lower parts of the current page?

Is there another way to call up Guy Dog's menu, apart from clicking on empty space of the desktop? (When reading a magnified pdf image that fills the screen and extends way out beyond the sides, there is nowhere on the desktop to click to bring up Guy Dog's menu.)

this can be done by setting margins of the desktop in obconfig. you can set just 1pixel on the left for example

also it's possible to set a keybinding for that in openbox rc file( there's a wide explanation in urukrama's blog
http://urukrama.wordpress.com/openbox-guide/#Key_mouse
( i did this some years ago when i used tabbed -like interface with OB an tint)

also if i'm not mistaken tint also have an option to show openbox menu

yeah there's actually a bunch of stuff missing aye, better make a list bro

~/.config/openbox/rc.xml
Code:
<!-- Keybindings for running applications -->
    <keybind key="W-r">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>/usr/bin/grun</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>
<!-- Keybindings for running applications -->
    <keybind key="A-F2">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>/usr/bin/grun</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>
<!-- Keybinding for Main Menu -->
    <keybind key="W-space">
      <action name="ShowMenu">
        <menu>root-menu</menu>
      </action>
    </keybind>


(the W- is the windows button, W-d "ShowDesktop" is already there) (and you'll find the program gmrun is fantastic, just a note - the console is urxvt)

Do this in the terminal:
Code:
ifconfig lo up

Sub_title: How to save session without reboot.
 

Thanks for Guy Dog elegant distro.
It is no Save icon now and save2flash command in console just hangs and do nothing. Please help with 2 items:
1. How to save session without reboot and keep working.
2. If it is not possible, please, inlude this task in the list of things to develop in Guy Dog 502.

This save2flash or by any other name capability is of real importance in our work. This request is in part a repetition of note by Plankton on pg. 14.

My frugal install is on 8G flash drive; desktop HP 2G memory, 500G hard drive.

Thanks.

On first attempt, my 3G modem was detected and worked well. Shutdown went okay. But booting next day, Guy Dog failed to detect the same 3G USB modem. Even when I specified (in /etc/wvdial.conf) that it was /dev/ttyUSB3 it didn't find it.

In fact, in the terminal, ls /dev/ttyUSB* found no matching files even though the USB modem was plugged in (during boot, and all the time).

This is very nice. low ram usage, stable, making this my daily os. lguleder, don't stop on this. Was messing with macpup 5.2.8 and thought, why do I need all this. Guy Dog does everything I need. Guess I like it minimal. Please keep improving on this, waiting for 5.0.2

Sorry for being quiet for some time Smile

I've got some good news - I have about 200 packages for dpup lying around and I want to build a fresh Guy Dog from them. This doesn't require any modifications, since the whole process is automated.

I'm also working on revival of my own distro (Calf GNU/Linux), under a different name. I'm currently rewriting it and I want to write some T2-like infrastructure for cross-compilation of the entire distro, from source.

I'm getting two ARM chips soon and I want to be able to develop for them. They're extremely weak (300-400 MHz) and I want to build a truly minimalistic distro with TinyX11.

Also, I got Trinity 3.5.13 (the latest!) built on dpup and I'm going to upload a SFS soon, hopefully Very Happy
