Remastered Slacko 5.7 PAE :

md5sum : fae1df3edf625819c449441eada4a9eb

Removed abiword, gnumeric, inchscape, epdfview (epdfview replaced with evince as that has better support for Ctrl-F (find)).

Removed firefox, added in Shinobar's portable firefox as a file (firefox-portable-0.5.tar.gz) in the HOME directory. After first run (setting up display and internet connection etc) copy/move that file to outside of savefile space, extract and run (see http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=764889#764889). Being outside completely means that updates would be easier and not affect savefile space (cache etc).

ROX-Filer set to double-clicks (more compatible generally).

Fixed mplayer so it correctly fullscreen's.

Added ROX as a Open With option (so ROX can open other directories in a ROX).

Changed HTOP colours

Added in support of my old Belkin USB wireless adapter (F5D5060)

Lean, with the potential to stay lean (save documents/music etc outside of savefile space, use (load/unload) Libre Office SFS for office aps, Portable Firefox outside of savespace ...etc).

If you want/need gnumeric/abiword, then load them as a SFS. Use something like http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=65400 where you can combine PET's and SFS's into a single SFS, which can then be loaded/unloaded on the fly as desired (also means that any updating of such programs is outside of savefile space)

Here for example is a SFS that I've uploaded for the above puppy that contains OpenShot (Video Editing), Audacity (sound editing), Blender (3D animation) and xvidcap (desktop video capture)

There are some good Blender tutorial youtubes here http://youtu.be/Q93pE5jB1Uw

Personally my hardware is odd, old monitor, NVIDIA card etc. To get to boot the first time I have to boot with

puppy pfix=ram,nox nouveau.modeset=0

and then run xorgwizard to select the nv option, which requires a reboot (and creating a savefile)...etc. After that its all fine.

What's your hardware? I have an older nvidia and have only just got to grips with loading the correct nvidia driver. Seems so much better than using nouveau for me (I've been needing accelerated graphics for CAD purposes and nv just didn't do it correctly)

Sorry, only just seen your post.

AMD64 3500+ with 1.5GB RAM and Nvidia GeForce 8600GT

With the correct NVidia driver for the kernel loaded and tweaking some of the settings to max (not really sure what I was doing, but just went through the menus one by one), it works really well. I've set windows to be opaque (so drawn as resize or moved rather than a square line outline) and moving/resizing whilst playing several mp4's at the same time works great.

I did have to tweak gnome-mplayer to get it to work properly (wasn't displaying video's full screen)

opened /root/.mplayer/config and entered a line

zoom=1

and then opened mplayer, selected edit, preferences and under the MPlayer tab in the Extra Options field entered

-zoom

Thanks for this puplet rufwoof.
How can I please set Rox to single click again ? (never mind, found & fixed)
Will report on hardware support on ultra new AKOYA notebook, so far, sound is working which is a feat in itself...
And good job on Mplayer full screen.

I am very interested in this, but have tried several times to download unsuccessfully. It downloads for a while then starts over - and over. I've been using the same puppy and opera to download isos for years without fail. Any other place I can try?
Thanks!

I've been trying myself over the last few days and don't hit that glitch Henry so I'm struggling to suggest a reason as to why that might be occurring.

Stumped Crying or Very sad

Thanks. Sorry for the bother. It was just that I never have a problem with isos. Downloaded two this morning, Maybe it's something with that google notice I get, or that I don't have wget. I always just use Opera. No worries.
