I have compiled youtube fixed Umplayer and uploaded it to the repo.
Smplayer is the maintained mplayer frontend and Umplayer is fork which is not actively maintained. Smplayer provides nice subtitles downloader and that is why it is my main multimedia app when I need subtitles.
Anyway....Smplayer team has patched the Umplayer for youtube.

Umplayer provides youtube integration in main app. It still might be something people prefer.

There is also 666philb packaged gtk-youtube-viewer which is great app for viewing youtube videos and for downloading them.

Anyway....Umplayer-0.9.8.2 is in the repo.

Beware the consequences. Lol.

F2fs is the fastest filesystem for SSD drives. Phoronix tested several filesystems and f2fs beated them.

Overall, F2FS was the fastest for the solid-state drive but not many production users may be ready to yet put their faith into this brand new Linux file-system. Meanwhile, EXT4 and XFS are proven and tested and generally running quite well. Btrfs didn't win as many tests as it once did, but it does continue to offer a plethora of advanced file-system features.

Pemasu, please bear with my nooby kind of question. I could find no
way to update seamonkey but I manged to do a clumsy workaround.
I "downdated" from 2.13 to 2,12 using a pet. I then got a update
option under the SM Help menu which I used to update to 2.16. What
is a better (or recommended) method?

BTW, your 3.8.3.1 is looking good here on my pentium 4 desktops.
My one "problem" machine doesn't freeze up during startup the way
Precise 5.5 and Slacko 5.5 often do on the initial startup. I dunno
if the improved behaviour is due to woof fixes or the kernel used, but
it's nice to see.

Artsown. I have used Barry Kauler`s self-compiled version. There seems to be now newer Barry`s compiled one, seamonkey-2.15.2.
I seem to have missed that one.

Anyway those compiled ones are not in the update channel, it seems.

How I would update them. I would download from Seamonkey site the latest one, uncompress it and then I would swap the contents of /usr/lib/seamonkey folder, in this case the folder /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.13.1. That way you would get the latest Seamonkey and you would be in update channel and no need to eat savefile more than needed.

I could provide official seamonkey in next releases so that they would be in the update channel straight.
I prefer Firefox but I would not like to steer too much away from Precise Puppy heritage.

I believe it is due to non-PAE kernel choice. The impact of PAE or non-PAE probably has the most important difference.

Pemasu, thanks for your response. Considering use of pups by the
general public I think it would be great if you provided a "active
update channel" seamonkey.

Like you, my preferred browser has been Firefox but I've gotten used
to SM which is usually just as fast it seems if kept up to date.

Just tried it in UP-3.8.3.1 and it works - fantastic - so easy. Now running SM-2.17b1 - nice.

Posting from f2fs formatted usb stick with latest Upup Precise.

ETP has done splendid work with f2fs experiments and now 01micko has created script based on that work.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=694239#694239

The pet replaces existing syslinux and extlinux binaries so that there is support for f2fs booting.

I have used syslinux-3.73.pet which is Barry Kaulers created one. It has tested support for puppy universal installer script. I dont know if the extlinux-syslinux replacing has any impact to other installing possiblities in Upup Precise. Probably not. Not tested by me anyway.

Swapping extlinux and syslinux from Ubuntu Precise .debs produces working solution also. Tested by me.

Anyway...installing the pet in above url link and then launching the installer I created working f2fs formatted usb stick and booted Upup Precise from it. The instructions were clear.

Thanks ETP and 01micko of your work with f2fs. Of course f2fs usage could be still called experimental with Puppies.

Hi pemasu,

Glad you like it Cool

I'm grabbing 3.8.3.1 now to test out some new functionality. I just added the multiboot option and will install Upup-Precise along side PHATSlacko and see how it goes. Razz . Next will be quirky support, but that might be awhile yet due to the different structure, that is the huge kernel type build.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Haha! Testing OP's (other people's in this case) distros is fun!

I got my dual boot working with F2FS but that can wait. I'll post more tomorrow.

Now, Upup.. I get correct res and all but the JWM taslbar only takes for 1024 of my width (all fullscreen apps too, native is 1366x768).

Hello Ray MK from UK Smile

The seamonkey update procedure I wound up using is:

1. Download the desired archive (to anywhere you like)
2. Delete /usr/lib/seamonkey directory
3. Extract the archive to /usr/lib (creates new seamonkey directory)
4. Delete /usr/bin/seamonkey-2.13.1
5. Rename /usr/lib/seamonkey to /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.13.1

I think this accomplishes the goal pemasu mentioned of minimizing
storage space and retaining the existing pointers (the browser and
email icons still work). But I had some difficulty "getting there" from
his instructions.

Is this basically what you did as well?

Artsown. Dont delete /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.13.1 folder or /usr/lib/seamonkey folder symlink. Just delete content of folder seamonkey-2.13.1. And replace the content from the uncompressed official version content.

The reason. /usr/bin/seamonkey is symlink to the /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.13.1/seamonkey.

Of course you can do as you suggested, but remember to fix the launching symlink in /usr/bin also.

My suggestion above was the one with least work.

01micko. Did you have external monitor connected. I have had similar experiences with some graphics drivers when I have used HDMI connection to my LCD TV.

Report for whatever it's worth. On both a dual-core and quad-core with Nvidia Gforce 7025/nforce 630a graphics Precise 3.8.3.1 successfully boots to a desktop but within about 30 seconds totally freezes with a totally distorted display with no keyboard input possible leading to a hard poweroff. Repeated several times on both machines.

No problem on older Nvidia or Intel boxes.

Pemasu, I found no need to fix the launching symlink in /usr/bin
using the procedure I described. As I said, the browse and email
icons work fine after updating (if that's what you mean).

Posting this from Ringtail Puppy. I have gotten the modules loading almost there just by compiling full udev-175...or I think I also installed them, lol. I will post my finding to Barry Kauler.

James C. That is bad. I suppose nouveau with KMS enabled is not for mentioned comps.

Artsown. Your listing number 5. fixed the situation.
5. Rename /usr/lib/seamonkey to /usr/lib/seamonkey-2.13.1
All is well. There are many ways to the same result.

I'm realistic enough to know that not all different versions of Linux will work out of the box on all hardware in every situation. Smile

But,booted Precise 3.8.3.1 with nouveau.modeset=0 ...... got an incorrect 1280x1024 resolution but it hasn't frozen up yet.
