On this Dell Latitude D610 with Lucid Puppy 5.28-005, I can't play video, such as at 6abc.com; I see a gray circle with a right-pointing triangle, click on that, and see blackness where it was.
(Oh - that seems to be a link titled "Please click to download and activate plug-in"??)

On the Dell 8300 with Lucid Puppy 5.28-005, streaming video seems fine.

Opera 11.62 or 12.02 on this computer, 11.62 on the 8300.

I've tried wellminded searching for several days, tried various flashplayer files, getflash, etc etc etc

I hope someone can tell me simple instructions to get it working.

(Online video plays OK on this laptop under MS-Windows XP)

Thanks a lot,

Sheldon

Thanks, bigpup, for trying to help.

The 11.62 is from a .pet in the Lucid 5.28 thread.
Can't find that, but see
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-lucid/Opera-11.62-Lucid.pet

The 12.02 is an .sfs by Terryphi in Browsera and Internet.

Sheldon- visit this page. Are the lower two checked?

Are there any listings beyond these in your /etc/hosts file?
Code:
127.0.0.1 localhost absolute
192.168.1.1 pc2
192.168.1.2 pc3
192.168.1.3 pc4

Good morning, Semme.

Here's /etc/hosts:

Code:
127.0.0.1 localhost D619
192.168.1.1 pc2
192.168.1.2 pc3
192.168.1.3 pc4


I didn't understand the page you said to look at; will you be kind enough to explain more? What is the "lower two" you mentioned?

Thank you.

Of course, I will be glad to uninstall/reinstall any programs etc etc etc etc
I have prevously tried starting without the save file; no better.

Is there another place in this forum or elswwhere to ask for help?

Thanks again.

These Sheldon.. Do you see my link like below?

Look and make sure this file exists- /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

If so inclined- use Pfind to *system* search as it's possible you don't have a Mozilla folder..

Not at first (but eventually; see below) - just a blank area.

Yes, it was there.

I wondered whether something was wrong in my save file.

So I booted with pfix=ram

Made a new 512MB save file.

Used bootmanager to install Terryphi's Opera 12.02

Then (can't remember how!) I installed flashplayer; maybe via GetFlash??

After that I could see the Global Storage Settings panel at your link.

and other videos such as
http://mindtv.org/cgi-bin/display_asset.fcg?member_id=1776;ordinal=595;file=vodind-new.ttml;style=mind

Now I need to gradually and carefully restore some of the settings from my old save file.

Is there a better way to do all this?

What settings?

A few things about save files and installing programs.
Make save file and be using it before installing added programs.
Give save file some size.
(To install a program, it temporarily uses about 3 times the space it will occupy after install)

Old one was probably /initrd/mnt/dev_ro2/puppy/lupusave-aug13.2fs

New one is /mnt/home/puppy/lupusave-oct14.2fs

Opera bookmarks, Sylpheed folders, swap and other startup stuff, sysinit and shutdown, and so on.

Never really tried this, but it may work.
Run Lucid Puppy 528 using the new save file.
Click on file icon on desktop.
Window will open showing file system. (the present system operating)
Click on file icon again to open second window.
Now with two open Rox windows.
In second window.
Find the old save file.
Left click on the old save file and it should mount with a Rox window showing contents.
(This may be all you need to use built in file transfer, some of the programs may have).
Find the old files or directories you need and drag and drop to first window (the present system operating).

However, with a possible bad or corrupted save file, you have no way of knowing what is good and what is bad.

Yes, bigpup; I did a little copying, but as you said, I'd better be careful.

You could try a filesystemcheck, or, an e2fsck on that save file of yours if you were to again boot live.

It's possible it can rectify whatever corruption, if any, may exist..

Boot live and forward the location of where it's stored.. perhaps /mnt/sda# or such..

For future reference- I'd also stick with an ext3 save..

Thanks, Semme - e2fsck of the previous save files says all are clean.

Can I convert the existing ext2 file? Or, how should make the ext3 save file from my new setup?
