Want to learn best way.
I have an approach I have used since Puppy began offering SAVE-SESSIONs to the Live media, easily. I run a Live media environment for several reasons that make sense to me for a RAM based OS where while running, the RAM houses the complete running file-system until mounts occur.

The caveat....the SWAP! I always use a SWAP partition on EVERY system I boot Puppy on. (If it doesn't have one already I create one.) Or, I will whip-out my trusty 4GB USB that is strictly a SWAP device when I demo PUPs.

My recommendation to everyone who runs PUPs from LIve media is to "insure you have a SWAP partition!" I have found that it makes all the world of difference as it is forgiving in certain cases and a savior when the number of tasks running spike RAM. (Do NOT use a SWAP FILE in the Puppy filesystem!)

Even though this is NOT a panacea, This WORKS!!!

Hope it helps

Fatslacko is good.
But I can't remaster it to keep my personal apps without pup_save.
Someone will give some instructions (about remaster problem).
Thank

Subject description: hardinfo 0.5.1
 

I downloaded the source code for hardinfo 0.5.1 and before compiling
it I added libsoup from the salix repository.
./configure followed by make and make install.
Now the network updater is enabled and you can syncronize with the
central database to get the latest benchmark results for other
computers and more.
I also found that I had to run each benchmark before generating a report
or the generate report option would fail.
I can see what a slug this pc is now Smile

Thanks @Billtoo.

This has general widespread applicability to ALL 32bit PUPs. Could you make a PET of your work?

And, @BarryK will need to upload this into WOOF.

Here to help

This sounds very interesting - why not make it an official variant. This would be the standard configuration for many people (Libre Office, VLC).
greetings and thanks for all the work - emil

Subject description: on a nice product.....
 

01micko,

First of all, this is a good decision, to integrate the packages that everybody would install if they really want to use the distro. Use it as a W*ND*WS replacement.

I currently run from SD card on a eeePC 1001HA (1.6GHz N270 with i945 graphics and RT3090 wireless, 1Gbyte RAM).

2 first observations.

- After I install on SD card, select Frisbee for network connection, I cannot see any wireless networks. The problem lies in the fact that frisbee uses a white "paper" and draws text with white "ink". I detected this because my environment has many wireless access points, and I saw the scroll bar schrink in size.... After shutdown-restart this is fixed (save file is created).

- It is very nice that Libre Office is integrated. But the file extensions are not detected (created a presentation, saved in .odp format (teh defautl libre office format). But the file is not recognized as a Lbre Office format. Rightclick, Open With ... works. Maybe it is possible to support at least the default formats for libreoffice ????

All in all everything looks smooth (I had good experiences with 5.3.2.7, so I hoped it was not broken in final...). Will continue to work with this version unless I hit some major bug. This is a keeper .....


Regards,

Volhout

I installed FatSlacko on a test box (can't remember the stats of the machine and I'm at work right now). Very pleased with this distro and saw no problems. I hope to see it continued as the only thing I needed to install was Firefox 12.

Very good work here! Smile

Yes, sorry, I thought I had the odp mime-type in there.

This patch fixes it.
Thanks for report.

Just curious Micko: What's the Qt version? 4. what? I ask because I'm wondering whether or not I could use this as a testbed for pemasu's RazorQT's desktop environment - which requires Qt-4.8.0 if I remember correctly.

Thanks for letting me know! Smile

Good luck with this "puplet" my Puppian Friend!

Cheers/Amicalement,

I will be compiling some more qt apps down the track, maybe even qt-4.8, but probably not until Slackware goes 14 or whatever number is next.

Cheers
