PostPosted: Sun 17 Jun 2012, 22:46    Post subject:  thank you!  

I just wanted to say thank you for the Lighthouse puplet. I've been struggling with the 5.28 Lucid pup, running into all kinds of odd issues (stuff like not being able to display the Japanese fonts I have in music tags - very weird) and nfs connection problems. Everything seemed like a struggle. Lighthouse just worked out of the box, and worked well.

I'm still working through a few issues, like not being able to load the ATI driver and the VLC mp4v error, but they're 'extras' for my goal at hand. The vesa driver works, as does Xine. All I really need to find is a wife-friendly music player. She's used to rhythmbox... sigh.

David...

@FixerDave, "Congratulation!"
I have a LH64 which has NOT been down for any reason since its initial save-session to its DVD (live media use). Its fast, friendly, stable, and fully featured for all of my LAN's devices, desktop needs, and streaming which is done from LH64.

I believe that you may be able to use both PETs from FATDOG distros as well as PETs that are provided thru LH64's PPM (although, I have to admit I haven't tried this for RhythmBox)

Here to help

Subject description: mouse pad
 

This puppy works great with clearwire (now clear). The pad (mouse replacement for laptop) works a little slow and the volume is even worse than it is with windows. If I can find a 32 bit version I will be going back to my old tashiba. This machine is a brand new hp2000 64 bit (bottom of the market I think but my first machine was 16k so I am impressed easily).

It's great for what I am using it for (from rewritable cd)

getnvidia-0.4-64.pet, NVIDIA driver / build SFS/PET, supports Lighthous 64.
http://shino.pos.to/party/bridge.cgi?puppy/opt/pup64/

You need Devx-L64_514.sfs package to build the kernel module. Required internet connection.
Recommended to build with new pupsave of 512MB or larger, or in RAM mode. I am not quite sure but If your RAM is less than 640MB, needs 500MB swap.
  1. Load devx package
  2. Install getnvidia.
  3. Exit X and down to the command prompt
  4. 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.

Try Grub4DosConfig 1.8.0 which supports LHP64.

Hi @Arun01.

I have, for years, been a user of Live media (specifically multi-sesssion DVDs). I have had excellent success in doing this. It works for me for when I get a distro that I'm happy with, it is rarely rebooted. My LH64 (Mariner) has not been rebooted but once at the very beginning. It is stable, fast, and full-featured. I also understand that everyone would not run in the same manner as I and would want to use other local media (HDD/USB/PXE) as a means to boot there systems.

I am no expert on running ANY PUP on an HDD/USB. I have not done it with any of the 64bit PCs. So, I am not the best to answer how to address resolving the GRUB problem.

Shinobar gives a "hint" to a solution. So, I try to clarify what he offers with a stepwise approach:
  1. Boot the Live media (CD/DVD) you used to build the Frugal/Full installation.
  2. Open Menu>System>Grub4dos config.
  3. Follow its instructions for setup on your HDD..
When done, copy the menu.lst and paste it here to this thread.

Your PC should be capable of booting the frugal and the full and MS (should you have that on the HDD) once it is complete; assuming I read Shinobar's hint correctly.

Hope this helps

PostPosted: Fri 29 Jun 2012, 16:39    Post subject: Web site migration  

Thank you for your feedback and support, especially for the expert assistance and suggestions for those needing help here in my absence. I am feeling a little better, but have been very busy trying to keep the lhpup.org web site up and available, (about 21 GiB in all.)

The Site5.com web host notified me May 17th that file repositories are not permitted on the share hosting plan, (~$5/mo) and needed to upgrade to a managed VPS server ($53/mo). That migration is complete, however I can't afford it for the long term, so I've found another hosting company that offers a self-managed Xen HVM VPS for ~$23/mo, with more available disk space and b/w. That means I am now responsible for installing and maintaining the server OS and configuring the software. The nice part is that it allows for easier administration over a VNC remote desktop connection. I got the VPS up and running with CentOS 6.2 last week and migrated a test website on to it. I'm in the process of doing the same with lhpup.org content. The URL will not change, but the underlying infrastructure will be improved.

It's been quite a challenge... I'm learning more than I ever wanted to know about web hosting Exclamation but hopefully will be able to adapt the new VPS for lhpup.org as needed. Also hope that the experience shows that I can get some work done again as my health improves. Still feeling very moody, and anxious about interacting with people I don't know and trust. Some days are better than others... Smile

Thanks again for your patience and kindness,
TaZoC

Hi tazoc,

Great to hear that you are feeling a little better and feel up to keeping your LHP site up and running. It's really super to have you back. Very Happy

LHP 64 5.14.2 b4 is still one of the best pups around and it's solid and fast, hopefully we will see it as a RC.

Hope that you continue to improve.

Cheers,
Jim

Hi TaZoC!

I am so happy to hear that you are working again, first because that is important, and also because I love Lighthouse 64.

If you are having problems with funds, you need to tell us so we at least have a chance to help. Your work is just too good to lose.

My issue is malware protection. Lighthouse 64 currently is my suggestion for secure banking online for ordinary people.
