I'm trying to compile ppower:
http://www.smokey01.com/jemimah/saluki/source/ppower-jemimah-01.tar.gz
and get this error:
Code:
# compile
bash: compile: command not found
#

Any ideas?

Assuming that you have opened a terminal inside the folder ppower-jemimah-01, run the command
Code:
sh compile
or
Code:
./compile

You will also need the devx installed.

Both commands work, note taken for future reference.
Thank you, rcrsn51 and a special thank you to pemasu for his help in removing the turbo mode from the source. I have been shamelessly taking advantage of his good will recently ...

I just did my usual frugal, copying across the sfs, vmlinuz and initrd.gz but it "boots" into a very weird and unusable (but very pretty) kaleidoscope of cyan / white / speckly lines and smudges all over the screen. Had to use hard power off to clear.

try:

puppy pfix=ram nouveau,noaccel=1

failing that:
Code:
puppy pfix=ram nouveau,modeset=0


Aaahh. Finally got it to work. The modeset parameter was the one I needed, but it should not be a comma between the nouveau and the modeset, in fact it has to be a fullstop:

puppy pfix=ram nouveau.modeset=0

All good now.

Hi this being a thin version of slacko are there a good set of .sfs applications available that are current maintained. THis would make ThinSlacko really useful. we need to go back to this approach to puppy beint thin, lightweight, needing a small save file and running apps outside the save file.

Hi,

With delta-on-delta would it be possible to release another full iso ?

Hi 01Micko
It seems like puppylinuxstuff.meownplanet.net is offline at the moment. Do you have another link for the deltas ?
Many thanks.
Christian

Hi Mick,

I've just started trialling this in more depth and wondered what the main differences are between thinslacko5.5 and the predecessor thinslacko5.3.3t?

Main reason for asking is that this newer release is 46MB bigger (100MB for the 533t version) yet lacks a browser, geany or Abiword (all of which were in the previous version)

Where did all the extra MB come from?

Also - I have only just noticed that the Abiword version which is built into 5.3.3t is able to handle .docx format. Brilliant! (I've been using 5.3.3t as my main OS on my work netbook for more than a year and only just realised Abiword was already capable of handling docx. Embarassed )

I think these two thinslacko offerings deserve wider acclaim.

One ISO has gz compression, the other xz.
XZ compresses more, but is slower on older machines.

Unless I'm wrong of course.

Actually I'm right - it's in the README....

I love 533t also - I'm using it as my regular daily choice. My remastered version boots to around 220MB (used amount shown when using the 'free' command). With sound, net, firewall, flash and latest firefox running a SneekyLinux YouTube that rises to around 560MB.

I've stripped out abiword, geany, gnumeric etc. and stored SFS's for those so that I can load them in (or unload them) as desired. I've also SFS's for Nvidia drivers, flash and firefox and a whole load of other progs/utils (OpenShot, Teamviewer...etc. etc.)

My remastered version (slacko_5.3.3t_v2.02.iso) and current range of PET's/SFS's have been uploaded to the Cloud - link detailed in this posting http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=766808#766808

+1

Absolutely great for peace of mind with online banking - boot to ram, direct download and run the latest firefox, straight to bank web site .... when done reboot to a normal session (I always use a boot CD/DVD, no Grub etc. Just store work/data files and SFS's etc on the HD).
