5.4.90

Multimedia

pupRadio/pupTelly streaming media

When NASA is selected in pupTelly... the program 'bounces' back and forth between the pupTelly dialog-box and the video media... stays on NASA about 7-seconds... stays on pupTelly dialog box about 11-seconds, this continually repeats.

So far, all else is working just great! Installed several programs without a problem, they all work fine and so far have not had one occurrence of 'buffering' in any youtube or other videos!

One thing, I do believe some of the 'fonts' could be a wee-bit 'thicker', especially in browser-headings of Seamonkey... there they could also be a bit larger

Here are two BitTorrents for downloading precise-5.4.90.iso (Precise 5.5alpha1 )
precise-5.4.90.iso.torrent and precise-5.4.91-k3.8rc7-nopae-scsi.iso.torrent
I am seeding this file
Code:
Comment if problems or does not work.  Thank you 'aarf' for troubleshooting and pointing out my error.  I just tarred together your two torrents, so this should work properly now.  February 12 2013 +7:12 UTC

How to use the mktorrent command line to create your own torrent file.

Use Xarchive to untar file into precise-5.4.90.iso.torrent and precise-5.4.91-k3.8rc7-nopae-scsi.iso.torrent

Fred

use the command line to untar the file into precise-5.4.90.iso.torrent and precise-5.4.91-k3.8rc7-nopae-scsi.iso.torrent
Code:
tar xzf pre*.gz
or
tar xzf precise-5.4.90.iso.torrent.tar.gz


Select which one torrent you wish to download.
Then keep seeding using transmission afterwards.
Use this code in /root/Startup

filename: transmission_start.sh in /root/Startup
chmod +x /root/Startup/transmission_start.sh

Code:
#!/bin/bash
exec transmission-gtk

as an executable file in your /root/Startup/ will start transmission at each reboot so you dont forget he he he

Adjusting mplayer cache may help, or having really good bandwidth, they have moved to HD video.

It was fine a few days ago but I see an issue too, it may be the stream. If it doesn't come good by Friday, I'll delete NASA nad put in something else.

Gnome-mplayer plays it but jumps about every few seconds.

PostPosted: Mon 11 Feb 2013, 13:37    Post_subject: UDF support feedback  

I noticed from BK's blog that he had implemented udf support for dvd's. Very Happy

I had an already udf formatted dvd that I've used in the past on Windoze to do backups. I'm pleased to report that it mounted just fine on Precise 5.4.90 and I was able to delete files and copy files to it just like it is a hard disk - which is great.

I did notice however that neither Partview nor Pmount seemed to know that the dvd/filesystem was mounted....see screenie

plus, I wonder how you would go about formatting a dvd for udf access? Is this done via gparted? Does gparted support udf dvd fomatting or should some other program be used - Pburn?

All-in-all I'd say this is a great addition to the Puppy armoury....
Cheers

Here's a quick comparison:
I transplanted the contents of etc/fonts from pemasu's dpup Exprimo into this build. At this image size you probably won't see a big difference, but on screen, it will not go unnoticed.
Haven't done yet much testing, so far runs smooth and cool on my eeepc.

installed openshot (ubuntu version) from the PPM and it fired up straight away, i'm glad the python.deb install scripts are now being run. Smile

alsaequal is excellent and works well

the chat icon on the desktop is pointing to pidgin instead of xchat or mozchat. thanks for removing ayttm, it was a pain!!

it would be nice if glipper is set to autostart by linking it to /root/Startup, it's extremely useful and a lot of people probably don't know that it's there.

Thanks for providing this - Downloaded 5.4.90 yesterday from Ibibilo - took 43 minutes using fast DSL - using this site was able to download 5.4.91 in 20 minutes.

Appreciate it.

Arrow I've seen this in Precise (the alpha version too), both in JWM and Openbox: when I right-click a file from ROX and select either Copy, Rename, or Move (several times, the one I use more frequently is Copy), the screen turns black, showing only the taskbar, then if I try to use other programs the taskbar disappears and all is finally black. I restart X and keep doing things as usual, then after many times copying files from ROX right-click menu I get the black screen again.
