I don't see a contradiction here.
Barry is talking about his personal experience of compiling Seamonkey. Given, he's been working on Puppy for ten years already, he's got some experience to share as does someone who's working on Slax. He's discussing compression, not rocket science. On a good day and under the best of circumstances, perhaps I could have come to the same conclusion ... if I had a little bit of Barry's knowledge.

Hi pemasu,

Due to health problems, I am late getting to check this out. However, I have found it to be very stable and most everything works as it should. Very Happy

Main problem is being unable to install my printer. I installed the hplip_print-3.12.4.pet which works for me most of the time.

Only other problem noted is that Bibletime installed from Ubuntu repositories will not display text. This is an Ubuntu problem though, since the same problem occurs with Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail. A pleasant surprise is that Xiphos installed with the PPM from Ubuntu repositories and works perfectly. I've also installed Wine and am able to run my favorite Windows programs: Bible_Analyzer, e-Sword, and theWord

Thanks for a great distribution. Looking forward to your version of Barry's latest.

Thanks again, Very Happy
Jim

I have attempted to install wine (both the pet version and ubuntu version) and both times I end up with an error message

wine: cannot find L”C:\\windows\\system32\\program.exe”

Can anyone give me a clue what this means and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance

Running Upup Raring on a eepc 1001HA (N270) from USB stick. Nice work !
video and wifi work fine. Nice feature that you have implemented the power modes in form of the laptop tool (from puppeee ?).

Impressive set of apps are included. This by far exceeds whats included in the Slacko builds. The only thing I didn't find at first glance is an e-book reader. But that is easy to fix.

Wil play with this a little more, and report findings here.

Thanks Pesamu...

Thanks Volhout. I have used fbreader from the Puppy Package Manager. It is nowadays Qt libs application. So...you unfortunately get a lot qt libs with it. But those qt libs works with other apps also. Like Smplayer, VLC etc...

I havent included old fbreader pet anymore. The qt lib based Raring repo version works fine. I have read quite a lot books at evenings now. Having leisure time still. epub and mobi versions. Raring fbreader handles them fine. I think that I dont have .mobi straight mime coupling, but is in the todo list. Lol.

And thanks to other posters also. I enjoy using Puppies....Upup Raring, Upup Precise, Dpup Wheezy and even Dpup Exprimo with my daily comp usage. But no creative or productive usage. Just used them as end user.

Still have great summer in Finland, Now 26 c in shadow. Yesterday 30 km trip on the road with poles and rollerblades. Next night I go to the fishing. I installed navionics gps plotter map application to my samsung android phone so that I know where I am going. I also ordered fishing sonic device for the boat so that I know the actual deepness and profile of the lake bottom. And maybe I even see some fishes with it. Gonna have some jigging experience.
But next night is for wobblers.

G'day pemasu,

When you mention enjoying your warm summer, and have yourself a new navionics app, I wonder if your new GPS system can measure the 'Holocene' rebound I assume is happening to your part of the world?
According to geologists, Scandinavia is possibly rising about 1cm per year, recovering from being under a kilometre or two of ice for quite a while until about 20,000 years ago.

Time to buy some downhill skis for winter?

Hi Pesamu,

I hope you caught a lot of fish last night....

It is hard to imagine what the world looks like up there in Finland. Your winters must be long, and so "unfriendly" that you spend a lot of time indoors. En when summer finally lands, you cherish it and spend all the time you have outside. The winters are for Puppy (or e-books), the summers outdoor fun. Enjoy it !!!

Back to fbreader: didn't find it in
http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu/pet_packages-upup/
or anywhere on the server.

Did you suggest to take it from the Ubuntu packages ?

Regards,

Volhout

Volhout. Yep. I meant to use official Raring packages. Use check dependencies and download them all. You get somewhat working qt libs installation as side product.

PostPosted: Tue 02 Jul 2013, 08:04    Post subject: SLight annoyance  

I am running a bootable usb with 16 gig of memory. Every now and again, Raring stops while accessing a directory or some applications like pfind that look in many places.

I suspect it's something to do with the memory. I notice that Barry's latest Raring is super slow, to the pointof being inuseable on my system. The problem has also been mentioned by others.

Is there anything I can do to prevent this periodic slowness?

Other than this annoyance, Raring is great.

Thanks,
Thom

hi backi ,

the framerate being lower is probably because the drive is synced to vblank .... meaning that it matches the frame-rate to the screen refresh rate of the monitor, which reduces screen tearing.

maybe Smile
