PostPosted: Sun 09 Oct 2011, 09:38    Post subject: Use Caution before installing jwm-508 to Barebones 5.01  

Hi All or Anyone,

Long after its creation, I was exploring Barebones Lucid 5.01 when Barry K developed the jwm-508 pet. This up-grade of the jwm windows manager squashes the conflict between the version of jwm used in Barebones 5.01 and some webbrowsers (Firefox, Seamonkey, perhaps Opera) and perhaps some other highly graphical apps. That conflict is that if you press F11 to have the app appear "Full Screen" without menus and toolbars you are then unable to run that app other than "Full Screen" with jwm as your windows manager. jwm-508 works fine in the Lucid 520 series, and the dpups and spups being developed at the time of this writing.
So I decided to install jwm-508 in Barebones 5.01. Although the pet installed and puppy continued to function, on reboot I was unable to reach desktop. I was able to run the xorgwizard, probe for and select my preferred screen resolution --900x1400x24, as I have a wide-screen monitor, and an Ati Radeon 3100 graphics card-- successfully test at that resolution, but typing "xwin" failed to reach desktop, returning me to the prompt.
I did not attempt to run under Vesa.

If you're seriously interested in using Barebones 5.01, I recommend that you backup your SaveFile before exploring the jwm-508 pet, or other "upgrades" which involve system changes.

snayak I don't know of any barebones Wary, but stu90's Squeeze 5X D-lite (http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=70547) only weighs in at 78mb. I think there may be an option to strip it back a little further, but I can't remember if it has "Remove built-in applications" included. If you'll forgive the addition of Firefox and a network manager, a version of D-lite can be found here from the Simplicity Linux crew at 112 mb http://simplicitylinux.org/ - I'm just about to test them, and I bet sneekylinux will be covering it on his Youtube channel in due course.

I suspect that hondasid has simply had something unexpected come up as he was working on his barebones 528 for a while and was ready to release it soon and then he seemed to drop off the face of the planet for a while now. I don't know about Wary Tiny but am planning on trying out Squeeze 5X D-lite in the next day or two.

Hi hondasid and everyone; The FileDropper link no workie, MediaFire does.

### Suggestion: Puppy501 is pretty old now...

# How about a truly Bare-Bones Puppy528-5 Ubuntu Lucid?

I`m talking: rxvt, geany, JWM, ROX, and other Puppy utilities.
Everything else will be in add-on SFS files so no more rebuilding Puppy.
