Just tried to stream .mp4 from my website via seamonkey. VLC fires up but no video.

If you open VLC then use the URL it will work. Seems to be something wrong with Seamonkey's integration with VLC.

Do you have a sample link for us to try?

I am interested in a 32-bit version of FatDog because it is a multi-user Puppy
so a lot of people would be able to use Puppy on 32 bit machines.

So if one had two versions of a multi-user Puppy because now they
refuse to use a single user Puppy. Yes I know that very few developers
do care about that criticism. But now when we do have a modern Puppy
that are multi-user then it is unfortunate that it is 64-bit.

Many many users of Linux still have older 32-bit computers.
So it would be great to have a modern 32-bit multi-user Puppy to recommend

Now I am a noob so I know too little. I have a lot of time but lack knowledge
So if the Devs have no time to make the compilation needed for 32-bit
would it be easy enough for a noob to do. I mean if the scripts as such
do it automatically and the only trouble is that it takes many ours a day
and many many days to accomplish but need no special knowledge to do?

As is obvious I know nothing so maybe I am way into fantasy land. Smile

Could one expect a kind of woof script in future that allow us noobs
to accomplish the 32-bit if the developers have no time to let it have
its automatic course or is it a hard and tough job to make it 32-bit from
64-bit?

I apology if all this sounds very ridiculous. All of it is from my heart
caring about all these Linux users keen on the notion of single user root.

I am all for single user root but I do care about all these others
and want them to be able to have a good multi user Puppy Linux.


Nooby, I think it is better to start a new thread for 32-bit puppies and ask any current developer of 32-bit puppies whether they would like to include the multi-user functionality. For a start, we have 01micko lurking here ... Cool

Nooby, I thing FATSlacko has plans for extensions in this area.

Although this is not the thread to address this, let me ask you to post on the FATSlacko thread your answer:
  1. ARe you looking to have other users logon to the system's console?
  2. Are you looking to have other users remotely get a desktop on the local PC?
  3. Are you only looking to share "specific folders/files" with certain LAN PC users?
Please post there as FATSlacko may have an answer to several of these already. Further, in my testing thus far, its stable.

Here to help

Using Skype with both Fatdog 521 and Lighthouse 5.14 was always possible only with Analogue Audio because the system recognized only the external analogue microphone and not ( no matter what I tried ) the digital microphone which is inside the usb webcam .

Is there any tweak Idea that could arrange that by the time the Skype pet arrives Question

I cannot promise anything. Skype is closed source software - you've got what they give out. All I did was to package skype with essential 32-bit libs so that it will work on Fatdog. How about using PuppyPhone instead Twisted Evil


Thank's for answering so fast ! My friends and relatives they are all using Skype and Yahoo ( easy Windows ... ).
I made a try and downloaded Skype from Fatdog 500 folder and tried to install it .
Guess what : it works fine on my system and more... it recognize now even the webcam microphone - all crystal clear .
So I guess Skype pet was complete - turning on the sound card made the program recognize all the ports of the system even all of the mobo's audio .

James, here is a little video made with this command:
ffmpeg -f alsa -i hw:0 -isync -f x11grab -s `xdpyinfo | grep -i dimensions: | sed 's/[^0-9]*pixels.*(.*).*//' | sed 's/[^0-9x]*//'` -r 25 -i :0.0 -sameq smokey.mp4

My laptop is very picky about which Puppy it likes (to do with quad core i7 processor maybe?). Only Racy and Fatdog get everything (graphics, sound & all USB ports) running properly.

It loves this latest Fatdog and so do I, however it still doesn't carry out modeswitching for my mobile internet dongle. Rats! that means I still can't have Fatdog as sole OS, I still need to use another Puppy or Windows (yuk!) to switch modes before rebooting into Fatdog.

Any plans to include this facility in the next release? My working life dictates that I am doomed to using a HSDPA USB modem for internet access most of the time.

This was on my mind for quite a while, but I dropped it because I don't have the hardware to test. The resident expert on modeswitching is forum member rerwin; unfortunately I don't think he looks into Fatdog thread.

PostPosted: Sat 23 Jun 2012, 04:55    Post subject: getnvidia-0.2-64  

getnvidia-0.2-64.pet, NVIDIA driver installer/PET/SFS builder.
http://shino.pos.to/party/bridge.cgi?puppy/opt/fatdog/
You need fd64-devx_600.sfs . Required internet connection.
Recommended to build with new pupsave, 512MB or larger. I am not quite sure but If your RAM is less than 640MB, needs 500MB swap.
  1. Install the devx package
  2. Install the getnvidia.
  3. Run the getnvidia from the main menu > Setup.
  4. Reboot PC. You need to save the session.
  5. Ensure the devx package is installed,
  6. Exit X, go down to the console.
  7. Type 'getnvidia'.

NVIDIA Graphics tip is not essential to build (thanks to pemasu). You can build on another PC if the target PC has not enough power and/or internet connection.

How to uninstall PET? The Un-Install button on the Fatdog Package Manager doesn't work... Sad

Thanks shinobar, I was going to ask for this but it doesn't seem to work. It appears the Nvidia package in your script is pointing to the wrong location. The modem appears to be downloading but after 10 minutes I killed the script.

I then went to the Nvidia site and downloaded the source which took about 1 minute.
http://www.nvidia.com/content/DriverDownload-March2009/confirmation.php?url=/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/295.59/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.59.run&lang=us&type=GeForce

When I tried to compile the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.59.run package it displayed some ugly graphics during the build. Once installed it killed my video. I had to delete the savefile.

I don't like the way Fatdog doesn't give you a list of the drivers to select like other puppies when you select xorgwizard, in fact xorgwizard-old.

Looks like I'm going to be stuck with nouveau for a little bit longer.

I have also noticed loading the fd64-devx_600.sfs is not persistent. I have it stored in /mnt/home/fd64b1 along with the other FD files. I have created a save file prior to loading the devx.

Anyone else having this problem.
