Barry,
thanks for the childproofing description, though---

No kids here so don't need childproofing, don't want it,
irrelevant, surplus to requirements.

If you must impose this module upon us, could you please
at least allow options to either not install it with the next SP
or un-install it afterwards.

Thanks.

Subject description: childproofing My opinion
 

My opinion:
childproofing - yes, but only as a separate Modulus, with the option to uninstall, just as described in the previous post.
Thanks.

Childproofing is a pretty good idea for those that have kids and want them to have the Puppy experience. It's also good for family members that might not normally use a Linux box. Either way, I'll have fun testing it.

Thanks again, Barry

Subject description: lost icon?
 

Greetings slenkar {?spell check}
best good guess? try navigating to /usr/local/apps
if iicon is in that folder? just drag it back to your desktop.
Hope I guessed it right.
GL !
or try /usr/share/ applications and then find browser desktop icon {might be "default browser}.
Then you can drag/copy to your desktop..Once on desktop you can right click on the icon on "edit" the name..such as "do not remove"..-haha

PostPosted: Wed 26 Feb 2014, 17:39    Post subject: VLC Web PlugIn has crashed  

Quirky Tahr 6.0.5

Chrome Version 32.0.1700.107
Tried to stream music from this site and:

VLC Web PlugIn has crashed

http://www.wdav.org/streams/wdav-24k.m3u

Used pupRadio which opened VLC and it is playing.
Also playing the stream directly in VLC works.

Then tried SeaMonkey 2.24 and it is playing within the browser.

Just been downloading the
/pet_packages-tahr/devx-6.0.5-tahr.pet,
from a couple of sources - ibiblio, uoc, - (partly with a view to test my new ISP service).

grrrr, the hash codes don't match!

Anyone have the kosher hash codes for this?

Quote:
A ".pet" file is actually a tarball, that is, a ".tar.gz" file, except that it has a 32-byte md5sum (file integrity verification code) appended on the end of the file.
All that the "pet2tgz" script does is remove that trailing md5sum. All that "tgz2pet" does is append the md5sum.
So... you do not need to check the hash of a .pet file.

I download from
https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0ByUDhE3nQF8uUkE3MWhqNjF3dEU&usp=sharing

It's a lot quicker but there's no md5sums.

Here's a tip:

Using viewnior do a 90 degree rotation of

/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/folder24.png
/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/folder48.png

The updating of the icons seems to be done automatically during
overnite maintenance??

The result is seen in image....

.... thanks, folks ....sorry if I am now drifting somewhat OT but, Bill, am I correct in inferring from the Barry quote that the .pet process is self-checking download-wise (assuming that the download is completed fully)?

If so, sheesh! - I never knew that - every day is still a schoolday!

Exactly... a .pet file has the md5 embedded.
It does not 'self-check' on download, only when it is opened.
That is why you never see a list of md5 for .pet files.
