nouveau is the one that works for me. nv failed.

By the way, my .pet for Scratch seems to work fine on Saluki.
Do you think I should re-build it from Saluki, or do you want to test it to check if it is okay as it is?
Scratch is used a lot in UK schools to teach kids basic programming.

I fired up Saluki 14 as a frugal install.

Quad-core/16GB RAM desktop machine with many hard disks.

Good first impressions, but as a distro ostensibly aimed at ex-windows users it was puzzling to access the hard drives, and it took a while before discovering the icon on the system tray.

Is there an absolutely compelling reason for drives to be labelled 'sda1, sb1, sdc' etc

Would it be a terrible thing is Saluki displayed the drives as 'C, D, E' etc?

Would it be a terrible thing if Saluki alone had a 'My Computer' icon which when clicked mimicked the drives icon in the system tray?

This is not a complaint - merely a suggestion. As a new Puppy user of course I now have no problem with the Linux conventions, and I appreciate the unpaid work puppy distro-developers do.

Sometimes though, a good idea is simply a good idea. Microsoft's 'My Computer' desktop icon is simply a good idea worth copying IMO.

I really like the way mounted drives are displayed in file save/open dialogs. A big step forward for puppy IMO.

A bit older Nvidia graphics card.

Saluki 014 live pfix=ram. Booted to a black desktop with a monitor out of range message. Heard the bark but missed out on first run settings. Three- finger-salute to xorgwizard, probe and got desired 1440x900 resolution.

No menu, but typing "python3" or "idle3" at the console will take you to the Python prompt or shell.

I've not included the Pygame "examples" folder - hope that is okay.

I plan to have a go at pygame for the Saluki version of Python2.7, maybe tomorrow.

You need tk, tcl and all the SDL bits. I have put them in dependencies list (hope I did it right!)

Python 3.1.4


The dependencies look good except I don't think you should put any spaces between them.

Would it be much trouble to build it with '--prefix=/usr'? I like to reserve /usr/local for users if at all possible.

This is good. I have added it to the repo.

I did strip the libs.
For python2 the dependency should be "+Python". I think I'll name python 3 "+Python3" to keep them separate.

Heres a rudimentary pet of Uzbl web browser...

I've uploaded this to the repo.


I don't think uzbl is ready for general use, as I haven't figured out how to get the key bindings working, so you can surf, but the keyboard functions don't seem to be working (not very useful atm)..I'm taking a look at /root/.config/uzbl/config , trying to figure it out.

EDIT: okay, the website says it needs xclip installed for keybindings to work, but something is still wrong...

Okay, I figured it out...the first lines in uzbl-event-manager and uzbl-tabbed needed to be changed from "env python2" to
"env python". I don't know why that is, becuase python2 is installed in Saluki, but it works now.

Jemimah, please remove the old Uzbl pet from the repo. The keyboard functions work with this one out of the box...
I may make a new pet with a custom uzbl homepage, for easier use in the future.


Ok, I will take care of this tonight.


This is now fixed in the repo.

Loaded saluki 011 on my old HP dv1000 laptop and it works like it was custom made for it. Added Clementine music player deleted xnoise, added firefox 10 deleted midori, added vlc. All programs added are working perfectly. Cricket usb a600 modem working fine. Loaded saluki 013 on my hp pavillion 3200+ desktop works good except rear sound with soundblaster audigy se. Have tried most of the suggestions in murga forums. If anyone knows how to get 5.1 sound working with clementine please guide me in the right direction. Saluki looks like a real gem. Thanks to all involved...

Geoffery,

I am not sure if this is a factor or not, but I am curious; what cpu do you have? And I always choose the Nvidia driver manually, after I install the pet; Xorgwizard sometimes chooses the wrong driver.

Thanks James..I guess it's a Midori thing. Okay I'll stop complaining about Midori now, lest I incur someone's wrath.. yikes!

23523 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4704.451 FPS

I need to try the 290.20 driver to compare

@Tman,
Well, I tried installing the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-290.20.run and I get the same result as the the pet package, a total lockup when running glxgears.

The GeForce 8600 GT is stable using the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-290.10.run driver.

This looks fun but it complains about missing libpulse-simple and libv4l2. So it should probably get recompiled.


Quick tip: if you want to rename the package, you should rename the directory before running dir2pet. Otherwise the pet.spec file has wrong information in it and I think it results in pets to can't be uninstalled properly.

Glad that one was okay. Sorry, but what do you mean by "strip the libs"?

Right - I'll have a look at this too! Thanks for the advice. Very Happy

Well, James, after all that testing, sadly the result is incontravertible - there's something different about Saluki ! It's the only one that consistently boots into the wrong default resolution. Same result that I reported using less rigourous methods, although long and bitter experience with masses of HW tends to let one sniff a wrong 'un at an early stage.

For anyone coming into this game afresh, it's a show stopper. Could be worse - could deflect interest away from other Puppies and that would frustrate the efforts of a bunch of hard working developers.

Black screens, video cards, monitors, etc may bore the pants of some, but, at the moment, it's the most important issue confronting the breed.
