Keef-

Yup, that's the one (don't know which update). Gotta say that, aside from the old browser and possible networking problems from newer encryption, this puppy beats the heck out of Jemimah's Puppeee and even Carolite. My 1000HA Eeepc was never happier.

ally-

I downloaded and installed google-chrome-dev-10.0.612.1.pet, but the browser wooldn't open. The package manager said there were missing libraries that it couldn't find in the repo packages, so that's what is probably hanging it up. I uninstalled it, thinking I'd look around for the missing packages, but I've never done anything like this and don't know if it's worth the time. What do you think?

M.

From the old browser problem, the best option is to take firefox from browser install and then go to help -about firefox. Will install the last version--
Another option that goes very well with akita is to use the portable version of firefox or chrome! You must have it in a flash disk and use it when you one! Very stable!

Sorry, bad english.

Go to Menu
-Internet
-Browser installer

Select Firefox (is version 17)

When already installed, go to firefox menu, help, about firefox

Then will start to update your browser.

Also if you find a wary pet from last firefox, i think will worlk, but not sure

Okay, I understand.

I have now done a pendrive frugal install of Akeeeta from akeeeta-15-atom.tar.gz. It's nothing like Pup_301-eee. As much as I liked Pup_301-eee, I've got to say that Akeeeta beats it hands down. The large number of applications and control and configuration GUIs in Akeeeta make it the most user-friendly puppeee I've seen yet. The browser and wireless selectors, and the pup apps and pup control panels, are all gems. In fact, all functions have so many redundant apps that it's really hard to understand how they can be packaged into such a small iso (81Mb w/o browser).

I had pretty much decided on Carolite as my new default puppeee after puppeee-4.4 went south on me, but I'm fascinated by Akeeeta's flexibility and will play around with it for a while, especially the various browsers available, some of which I've never heard of (like TOR). Akeeeta is also very fast, while Carolite is too slow.

I do foresee one major problem with Akeeeta: its Frisbee is not working properly and I had to fall back on Pwireless2, which is fortunately there as an alternative. Pw2 may not be able to resolve modern WAP keywords, though (it doesn't in Puppeee-4.4).

But Scott Jarvis deserves a round of applause for Akeeeta. I hope he keeps the repo updated as much aspossible.

M.

For the "browser problem" another good option is portable browsers
You can use it independent of puppy version you are probing.

In my case, much more stable, very good if you have low ram and no swap partition.

Thanks to shinobar.

Another option for stability are swap files,. only my experience, not profesional opinion!

I am looking into this, but first I want to try out all the browsers available in the Browser Selector.

Do you know if I can create a swap partition on a USB flash drive, or swap files? (Difference?) If so, how would I do it?

Hello, Mike.

Yes you can create a swap partition on a USB flash drive, the usual way,
as you would on any hard drive -- using gparted.

Since USB drives are usually smaller than hard drives, a small swap
partition of 0.5 Gb (+/- 512 Mb's) to 1 Gb will do fine.

Another solution, perhaps less demanding, is to use one of the smaller
ready-made swap files available here.

Simply copy the swap file on your USB next to your main puppy_xyz.sfs
and insert the appropriate script lines in file rc.local at folder /etc/rc.d as
explained here.

As to the difference, swap files and swap partitions perform equally well
nowadays: one or the other doesn't matter any more.

Finally, don't worry about disk access to the swap file or partition wearing
out your USB drive too soon: swap files are seldom used if you have
even just a regular amount of RAM; swap files and partitions are meant to
absorb what would "overflow" from the RAM when you have many
programs running at once. In normal use of the Puppy, swap is not used.

I hope this helps.

BFN.

I've never created a swap file, on hard drive or otherwise. Is it done by creating a new partition and choosing "linux-swap" as the file system?

What about the "mkswap" and "swapon" terminal commands? Do these need to be invoked if a partition is created with Gparted? Inversely, if a swap partition is made with mkswap, does anything need to be done using Gparted?

Below is a screenshot of Gparted showing the partitions on my 16Gb USB flash drive containing Carolite-1.2 (in sdb1).

Could I simply make a 1Gb swap partition in the unallocated 1.24 Gb third partition (using linux-swap)? If so, would I then have to add the bootcode "swapon" in menu.lst?

Thanks very much for your help with all this.

Mike

You have in
System
Devices
> MAke swap file (Or something like that)

For me works better than swap partition. Also, is not for intensive use, only for more stability. Try to keep low ram use, so you wont need it.

Swapoff you can use ir after, if for any reason you would not like to use it at that session.

Workable SKYPE:

I convert slackos SFS Package
And take from the forum this library that is not in Akita

With this you can get skype working, with sound!

ALso, new tor browser.

Also take the SFS file from Smokey and convert SFS

YOu can take it from this yandex disk
SKype pulse audio
