Debian 7.0 "Wheezy" released

May 4th, 2013

After many months of constant development, the Debian project is proud to present its new stable version 7.0 (code name "Wheezy").
This new version of Debian includes various interesting features such as multiarch support, several specific tools to deploy private clouds, an improved installer, and a complete set of multimedia codecs and front-ends which remove the need for third-party repositories.

Looks like a great base for Puppy builders.
Especially when Ubuntu is becoming a non-Linux distro.

Xen, Asterisk, all common codecs, and many of the latest apps.

# So who`s first guys?

Pemasu will be the first, I guess.

He's going to take an entirely different approach to building a puppy. This time, it will be a puppy built with the end-user in mind. A light/barebones/thin dpup Wheezy based on kernel 3.9 or newer. No bloat, no unneeded, unrequested stuff. So that the user himself can choose what to install in his puppy. New release, new kernel, new approach ... spring time. That's my hunch Smile

I'm using "Debian Wheezy" for "Raspberry Pi". [plus 2 others]
One of the problems I'm having...
I think it's withSAP for R_pi, and perhaps also with Debian Wheezy for R-Pi...
Is that Flashplayer and Gnash won't work [won't play Youtube videos]. Sad
Whereas...
OpenELEC XBMC for R-Pi has no problem playing Youtube videos. Very Happy

Any chance of a Puppy based on Wheezy, for R-Pi that plays Youtube videos?

I think to play youtube on the Pi, you need some software that bypasses flash like the GTK Youtube application for puppy does.

The other issue is that the only way to get accelerated video on the Pi is to use their omxplayer.

If you look on the R. Pi message board, there was someone who figured out how to play youtube videos on omxplayer from the command line.

It is way beyond my ability, but someone could adapt the GTK Youtube app to use omxplayer instead of mplayer, then that ought to work.

A quick search showed

Yes, all of that stuff is beyond my understanding. Sad
I like it when stuff "just works". Very Happy

anikin; It`d be nice if they embraced No-Install apps. like RoxApps.

Then Puppy`s Save file wouldn`t become polluted with apps. and libs.
So the Save file would only need to be 256 MB or less in size...
And the old apps. are easily replaced with new ones, just copy over.!

A small Puppy with just the bare utilities, all the apps. would be add-on.
Groups of apps. in one No-Install app. Browsers, office, games, etc.

The new Debian Wheezy is the perfect base to build these apps. from.

New record! Get your new Debian, you only have to download 10 DVDs!

(I have all from year 2000->up, and I have actually read all the program descriptions in wheezy, more than 30.000 programs. The new one has more that 37500 packages, so I guess I know how to spend my free time in the coming months...)

For the ones that are not interested in collecting all stuff (all 10 DVDs...) see: http://live.debian.net/.

There you can:
1) download the releases: oldstable, stable, stable+nonfree.
2) pick your platform: 386, amd64.
3) format: iso-hybrid.
4) choose your iso
5) done

The smallest iso is around 550MB (probably w/o gui), the smallest iso with XFCE is around 1GB (LXDE is a little bit smaller...).

Have fun

Subject description: It works with the SCSI hard drives
 

I even have some adapter cables to try that will let me use a SCSI-2 hard drives on USB. If I have a motherboard, in fact, I think I have two with SCSI built onto the motherboard, I'll use the hard drives or CD-RW drives that I have, too. I thought one reason Puppy came into being was to use old hardware. I just hope my old CDs or image files don't get too corrupt for SCSI Puppy to run, since Barry isn't including these any longer.

If I was smart enough maybe I could learn how to add them myself. I tried one of the Slacko CDs, not the latest that was suppose to work with SCSI, but no joy. Will continue to test, since Debian usually gets clobbered, unless things have changed.

Thanks for the hard work on Puppy,
Joan in Reno
