This Wheezy-3.5.2.1 has lots of potential testors... let's not let it fall by the wayside. Even as it currently is, it's a fantastic Puppy... could easily be the king of puppy's in the very near future with a little more work!!!!

'Merry Christmas To All Dev's, Testers and Users'

I haven't tried this in a while....... was running it on my Athlon XP box with an old Nvidia card and was having some display problems so I gave up on it. Your post reminded me of it so I did a quick frugal install on an old P4 with Intel graphics and zero display problems. Now I can experiment with it.

Wheezy-3.5.2.1

Abiword & Gnumeric do not function!

Tried reinstalling them from the PPM with no luck. Even tried installing from other Puppy versions, no luck?
Went back and did a pfix=ram from previous version 3.5.2 and they did not work there either?
This Wheezy is one fast Puppy on all the rest of the apps!

Oh Boy... dumb me for missing that post... 'Thanks James C'

I guess I will have to try the libre office thingy... never used it I might say but if that's it I will have to learn!

Main reason I like abiword is for the printing out of graphics from mtpaint, it does a nice job since mtpaint can't print, I hope libre office can do that, if not I'll have to use gimp I guess?

Anyway, so far this has been a super distro, excellent graphics and as far as I can tell, the fastest puppy I've ever tried... online. offline, downloading, web browsing, you name it. I hope pemasu keeps after this one! although to be truthful, I can't find anything major wrong with it so far?

Maybe I'm getting to old for all this stuff Embarassed Find me a nice quiet little distro that does it all and jack-up all this brain teasing. Wink

First time trying this distro, I'm really impressed.

Manual frugal install on no-name laptop, M processor, 1.6Ghz, 256RAM... and it flies. Copied lib/firmware for ipw2200 and connected without further problems.

This is the first 'new' build puppy that I've actually been able to run Firefox with, it usually grinds to a halt. Also installed latest version of Seamonkey, no problems.

Hope you continue to develop it, and Happy New Year to you!

James C :

Notice on your desktop you have a 'Ambiword' icon... by chance is that working for you and if so, how did you go about it?

Wheezy has been working really well and the programs that come with it seem very stable. I run wifi and have had zero problems. It still appears to be the fastest of any of the new puppy's so far!

Been trying to get a Google Earth going in it without success.

@ szindian --> Hugh Wink

did you get a try on pemasu's combinated abiword+goffice+gnumeric.pet or -.sfs here:
http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu/pet_packages-exprimo/

I installed it on a pfix=ram dpup Wheezy-3.5.2 on a ... Embarassed 82845G Brookdale featured PIV .. and only gnumeric works fine ..! Abiword: got a GLIB error:
Quote:
# abiword
GLib (gthread-posix.c): Unexpected error from C library during 'pthread_setspecific': Invalid argument. Aborting.
Aborted
#


(seems like intel drvers later than 2.13.0 areworking nice with intel 82845G video chip Very Happy--> no longer black screen after several restarts of X )

Hi charlie6!

Yes quiet awhile back, tried that, same problem you encountered. I might add, I've tried just about every abiword (both .pet's & sfs) there is without success but thanks for the mention.

I would have to say charlie6 that this Wheezy Puppy probably has more potential than any other Puppy currently available, maybe pemasu is waiting for the right kernel or the final development of wheezy itself before he puts any more of his magic into a next-build... he certainly done it right so far... we'll just have to wait and see?

Hi sszindian,
Quote:
# abiword
GLib (gthread-posix.c): Unexpected error from C library...
#

googling about that message error returned comments about a possible bug in glib that could have been fixed with earlier glib versions ( might be version 2.35.4).
I did a fast test downloading ubuntu's something like «libglib2.0-0-2.35.4.deb» --> so abiword was requesting a new libffi version and aftrwds a new libc6 version (those are listed in the needed dependencies for «libglib2.0-0-2.35.4.deb»);

At this point, I know from earlier experience that «touching» to libc6 matters is very risky --> so do not repeat this unless you are running only on pfix=ram session ..


So - let us go ! - once the recommended libc6 has been installed, things went worse: no longer possibilities to install new debs (nor pets) just by clicking on it; only manual install doing
Code:
#undeb archive.deb

As a conclusion:
1. i lost control of my PC and had to do a manual swith off ... Sad .
2. last edited: as pemasu wrote it: abiword might need to be compiled againt this wheezy3.5.2...
3. this matter is now above my (tiny) knowledges --> i give up at this point.

cheers, charlie

(above post continued)
.../...
and
4. just a suggestion: maybe you already tried pemasu's uPup-Precise-3.7.2 ... it has already built-in abiword-2.8.6 + xorg 1.11.x + intel_drv.so > 2.17.0 + OpenGL (as for dPup-Wheezy) + a lot of apps in the PPM repo

best regards
charlie

charlie6:

Yes... I've been testing Upup-Precise since its beginning! It for sure is a nice Puppy but... pemasu's Exprimo's and Wheezy (especially Wheezy) are faster, show graphics and pictures better, and in my opinion are just better all around, at least so far. Sometimes in the course of a day I'll compare certain functions in Puppy on a half/dozen Puppy builds and other non-puppy distro's, just something I like to do! Surprisingly, not all new distro-builds, upgrades or even certain programs are better than the previous version and some distro's are better than others... again in certain areas... and... that is what keeps Linux interesting and on-going.

Appreciate you keeping up with Puppy in general and for your concerns!

'Thanks'
