Try to put "xft.dpi: 96" in ~/.Xresources. I think the driver reports the wrong DPI and you can force it this way.

Subject description: New release
 

Is there a later release? I've been running 002 with your KDE3 Trinity, however, I've been unable to install pet files.

Thanks,
Jim

There is no newer release of Guy Dog yet. I believe there might be eventually but for now Iguleder I believe is reviving calf linux I believe it is called. It is his own creation from a little while back.

Guy Dog is on a back burner for now I think. Iguleder of course will be able to tell you more accurate info on Guy Dog im sure.

003 is kind of frozen, since I'm very very busy these days. I'm working on many FOSS projects in parallel and I find it hard to work on a puplet with all this mess.

However, I'm working on a nice concept that could evolve into the second generation of Guy Dog. It's a very innovative concept - a mix n' match Puppy with dynamically-loadable SFSs that implement parts of it: each category of applications is contained in a separate SFS.

Also, another nice feature is the user of Xvfb instead of Xorg - it's a framebuffer-based X server that is much smaller, but lacks the hardware acceleration provided by the latter. I want to apply this philosophy in the graphics area too - each user installs a SFS with the right GPU drivers. I'm currently examining its dependencies and compatibility.

By the way, to install PET packages, run "petget /path/to/pet" to install a package. It will complain about a missing directory - just create it.

Thanks for update. That install pet procedure doesn't work for me so I'll just wait until next release.

Regards,
Jim

In three tries over two days the download stalls at 7-9%. I tried both Firefox and Konqueror.

Hi Guys,

Regarding iguleder's missing repositories, iguleder explained and apologized. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=595859#595859.
For what it's worth, I have the guydog-5.0.1.iso that I can upload if it had somewhere to go. Sorry, I don't have many (any) of his scripts or pets, except puppizard-008 and (I think it's his) dash-0.5.7, a PDF of puppizard's instructions, and some other pets (mostly I think from Exprimo) that I used in Guydog. If wanted, I'll be happy to upload them as well.

I have started the upload of dpup pets. There are about all those dpup pets I have. There are my compiled stuff also, for exprimo, so for some pets, some additional libs might be reguired from squeeze repos, until they work in guy dog, but I believe all pets basically works there. Launch the app in console if they dont start from menu entry and you will find out what you are missing.

If that dont tell you...in console which application name and the ldd path/to/the/application/location.
Okay little obscure but you get the idea. There will be 464 pets.

Link to the pet_packages-dpup: http://smokey01.com/pemasu/pet_packages-dpup/

EDIT. Upload finished.

Hello Iguleder
Just discovered Guy Dog.The "look and feel" is fantastic.
Is there a chance to have the scsi driver included in the next release?
Many thanks for the great work

I have found that squeeze debian Puppy builds likes that there is this file: /usr/lib/gconv-modules.cache.
Barrys packages-templates NOEXCEPTIONS rules it out during woof build.

Install the attached pet and you get snappier starting time - quicker launching to some Puppy apps.

utterly Amazing,
Not as fast boot times as my Arch Linux system, but running applications is flawless. This os has not slowed down at all. Flash games web browsing, word processing it all runs at the speed of light. I have installed this onto my usb drive and it works flawlessly, I had to install flash and java, which was not a problem. Pet management is great.
I want to be able to play games such as warzone2100, but am unable to figure out the problem it is giving me the error can't find libdirectfb-1.2.so.0. Is there a way to install multiple drivers for 3d support? If that is even the correct solution?

It is very nice I have tried it on ten different computers around my campus.
