Subject description: latest 3.5.2.5
 

I did a manual frugal install to a hp desktop pc.

VIDEO REPORT: Dpup Wheezy, version 3.5.2.5

Chip description:
VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated
Graphics Controller (rev 02)
Multimedia video controller: Internext Compression Inc iTVC16 (CX23416)
Video Decoder (rev 01)
Requested by /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Resolution (widthxheight, in pixels): 1440x900
Depth (bits, or planes): 24
Modules requested to be loaded: dbe
Probing Xorg startup log file (/var/log/Xorg.0.log):
Driver loaded (and currently in use): intel
Loaded modules: dbe dri dri2 extmod fb fbdevhw glx kbd mouse record
Actual rendering on monitor:
Resolution: 1440x900 pixels (380x238 millimeters)
Depth: 24 planes

Installed from ppm: kdegames,lxterminal,and vlc-2.0.3
Installed from pets: xfe-1.34,mc-4.8.1.7,cmus-2.5.0,htop-1.0.2,and
PupSnap-2.1
I installed kdegames first and I noticed that it downloaded some vlc
files, it then prompted for more files to be downloaded but clicking
on the debian repo gave an error so nothing was installed, I
downloaded kdegames-card-data a second time and that succeeded and
installed all the other kdegames files as well.
Vlc 2.0.3 installed from ppm without problems.
I downloaded and installed google chrome from the google website but
trying to run it gives an error, it needs the same run-as-root fix as
vlc (if that's easyily done)
The ethernet autoconnected this time.

That's it so far, thanks.

Hi pemasu

Chromium-25 sfs is now working correctly from its DOTdesktop file when loaded onto the updated version of Dpup Wheezy.

Rerwin's new Frisbee is also working correctly.

Cheers & congrats

Testing straight google-chrome install from .deb

Here is my post:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=686261#686261

And here is the fixed script to disable root user restriction from .deb google-chrome. Install the pet and after that install your wanted google-chrome .deb. Previously installed ones are not affected.
Happy testing.

Just in case anyone else is having display( missing icons,etc.) problems in Wheezy with older Nvidia cards..... mine is a :

Code:
VGA compatible controller      : NVIDIA Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 440 AGP 8x]


I edited /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau.conf to read : options nouveau noaccel=1 and rebooted....... took care of my display problems.YMMV.

I have updated the google-chrome-fix-for-deb-install-0.0.1.pet.
Now it has data and media cache restriction set to 10 Mb. So that the browser does not fill /tmp or savefile with browser accumulation data.

I reattach it here and also the previously posted pet in the post above has been updated. I think this is so important update that I post the update in this new post also....

Is there a reason that this is better than setting
Code:
exec=google-chrome %U --disk-cache-dir="/mnt/home/Cache" --user-data-dir="/mnt/home/chrome"


in the .desktop and default browser file. Then assuming you are on a hard disk install with lots of room, just let the cache and user files be the size they want to be (or maybe add the size flags too).

Your executable code from pet file for reference
Code:
exec /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --user-data-dir=/root/.config/chrome --disk-cache-size=10000000 --media-cache-size=10000000 "$@"' > /usr/bin/google-chrome


Thanks

versus
Code:
exec=google-chrome %U --disk-cache-dir="/mnt/home/Cache" --user-data-dir="/mnt/home/chrome"


When you dont have savefile created, you dont have /mnt/home directory so...that definition is not generic enough. So...my used one has generic version with data and media cache restriction...if they are not restricted....try to watch movie stream from the net and voila...even /tmp will be eaten up.

Your version is okay with savefile...when you have hdd disk available to where to point the data and media cache.
%U is not needed in Puppies. Remove it. It is good habit not to include it. Some apps get disturbed.

So....your version is just fine for usage with savefile. My version tries to be safe with savefile and without it.

What I want. My first version has been incorporated already to the woof. I posted for Barry Kauler that my improved one is better and I hope he update the woof with it. When people or Barry now woof build Puppy, they can download latest or their wanted google-chrome .deb and test it without need for those Puppyficated google-chrome pets which have that root user fix and fix for data accumulation.

Off topic... I think it is not great idea that browser has not that cache size option in settings panel....but that is google app, not mine to criticize it much.

Try it without a save file. It seems to go ahead and create the mnt/home/<directory>s and work anyway. Not sure exactly what it is doing though as far as where the files really are and what happens to them when you create the save file.

Yes...it creates the directories....but inside the ram. The directories are not linked to the hdd partition.
Try it without savefile and find some HD movie stream and watch that for one hour. I believe you will get warning that you are getting out of space and the movie stops....okay...almost everything stops until you restart X.

I will test it when I next time watch movie stream. Maybe this evening....maybe not.

I installed Wine using Package Manager including all the dependencies. But after successful completion, there are no menu entries. The .wine directory is also missing. Am I missing something obvious?
