Thanks for your great new Precise Puppy 5.4. It's working great.

Please consider adding Pemasu's Bibletime to the puppy-precise repository. It works great and Bibletime along with Xiphos, installed with the PPM using the Ubuntu repository makes a super Bible study system.

Thanks again,
Jim

Hi Jim1911,

How about we leave the Christians to develop their own puplet with your own repository and leave the official Puppy to the rest of us that are not NUTS. We're just a bunch of geeks.

We also need a Muslim/Jewish/Agnostic/Atheist and all waring tribes version, I figure, if this is allowed.

Eric

PS..I guess I'm going to Hell for this....so leave the propaganda to Mitt

Hi Caneri et al,

There are apps especially written for Puppy which work well with Precise Puppy (e.g. from radky), but are seemingly not available via the PPM.

Personally, I would not use a Bible app, but I have not the smallest objection to such an inclusion in the PPM. Though if it is not added, perhaps an existing Bible pet will work and is readily available.

My regards

PostPosted: Tue 23 Oct 2012, 17:21    Post_subject: Saving to SDcard  

Before we get to an all out relegion, freedom of speech/choice etc debate Rolling Eyes ...
Did anyone tried to boot from an SDcard and then save to the entire SDcard partition?
I can see the files there after reboot but puppy keeps booting to pupmode 5, as for the first time.
It would appear that the issue is with the rc.shutdown but before I start digging would be good to know if is not something specific to my card/hardware.
Besides is getting late tonight

Hi,

With two of the icon sets I can easily see if the Trash can is empty or used. With the other two sets I cannot.

Has any other user experienced this?

My regards

Sub_title: Wonderful new look with great apps in small package
 

Just tried out the live CD with great results.
Fast and beautiful new look.
I have been looking around since 5.2.8 stalled out and fatdog64 went different direction. Many distros around, but this 5.4 Puppy gives me familiar puppy-like features going forward. Great job to all involved in this new release.
Many thanks! Very Happy

PostPosted: Tue 23 Oct 2012, 18:25    Post_subject: It actually recognized my firefly remote  

It automatically recognized my Firefly remote and loaded the module. Puppy has never done that before. Excellent.

Here is what pupscan had.

Manufacturer=X10 WTI
Product=RF receiver
VendorID=0bc7 ProductID=0008 KERNEL-MODULE=ati_remote

With the remote in the text editor, you can type numbers and navigate with the arrow keys. It doesn't do anything in Mplayer, but at least the remote is talking to the computer.

Is there a config file or utility I can use to assign keys and get it to really work?

It would mean that I don't have to use XP to use my remote.

Here is the remote. http://www.snapstream.com/products/firefly/ It was also sold under other labels.

Thanks for all the hard work.

openshot from the ubuntu repo doesn't work without a bit of tweaking, and getting to work was my project for the last few days as well as trying to understand why python apps have been causing problems with puppy (for me anyway),

after a lot of head scratching i'm pleased to say i succeeded and are now up for some new challenges. Smile

so if you have a python app that you want to work on precise, PM me and i'll see if i can sort it, and learn something in the process.

get openshot 1.4.3 precise here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=660179#660179

artsown wrote:
Since Precise 5.4 is still giving me black screens sometimes

If the black screen means the X server runs but the desktop is blacken, it may be a timing issue.

The script /sbin/pupevent_frontend_d has a wait at the top stage:
#w471 slow cpus need more delay (well, rox does)...
#120829 L18L: need 1 sec for my 1514 MHZ CPU.

It is reported that recent Puppies need more wait than older Puppies, though the reason is unknown.

@Barry and to all
I propose putting more sleep, simply for all hardware. I mean more sleep at line 57:
sleep 1 #let the dust settle after X has started. 120718 reduce 2 to 1.

I propose:
sleep 1 ==> sleep 4

I do only full installs and have had problem with black screen at bootup about one in three times. Also, used the menu at bottom of screen to restart x, which solves the problem.

I changed grub to read as follows:

# Linux bootable partition config begins
title Precise 5.4 on /dev/sdb1)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sdb1 ro vga=normal

previously read:

# Linux bootable partition config begins
title Precise 5.4 on /dev/sdb1)
root (hd1,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sdb1 ro pmedia=atahd

I have rebooted five times and worked correctly each time.

Hope this helps your situation

Grumbling: >>> B43 Broadcom.

Have we ever heard of this nightmare??
Most of our devs have squashed this.

Except Precise Puppy 5.4.

When we are downloading a Puppy of this size
expectations are that maybe this time, wireless will work.

What is one of the biggest whinges here on Murga..
Wireless...
time and time again.

And the help participation rate on the forum
has been a bit lax lately.
No digs here.
Some really useful advice as always.
People who go out of there way to help.

But people have a life.....need a break etc.

The fact is that most newbies downloading Puppy
won't know we offer other Puppies or Puplets that have fixed
this issue.

And there is plenty of Broadcom hardware out there.
So onto the forum they will arrive.
With the lovely Vista....what a combo.

And why is there no Frisbee alternative??
Have it in the menu under network as a Pet file.
As in other Puppies.

Click on it and it installs.

jemimah did sterling work with Pwireless2 and Frisbee.

Even the Saluki last releases fixed my wireless woes.

Personally I wouldn't touch Dell if you paid me.
But the price was right....Zero...
and I'm glad I've been able to hunt down this issue.

""""""""

Why do I often cite this >> pemasu release,
as my pick for wifi problems???.

DpupExprimo5X327

because it's just so good with Broadcom chipsets.

Very Happy Hello,
@BK..
Sorry so late to reply, but Precise works fine for my Compaq CQ-56 with a Celeron and Intel graphics and sound.. Everything worked OOTB, (of course) and the devx as well.....
You are the rock... Always...
I have a few machines to test it on, so I will be back.. Cool

Did you format the SDcard in a Linux format?
I think that is required when saving to entire partition.

From how Puppy works:
Quote:
Puppy can take over an entire partition in which to save. The choice of file or partition depends on whether a partition is a Linux filesystem -- if only a FAT filesystem, then only a pup_save.3fs file can be created.
