The download link for VCU Richmond, VA USA does not seem to be working. Returns a '550 failed to change directory' error message.

The path is:
ftp://ftp.vcu.edu/pub/gnu+linux/puppylinux/puppy-slacko-6.3.0/
The ' + ' should be an ' _ ':
ftp://ftp.vcu.edu/pub/gnu_linux/puppylinux/puppy-slacko-6.3.0/


Edit: Maybe I've jumped the gun a bit, the mirrors for the 64-bit, don't appear to be fully set up yet. The iso at VCU is only 142 MB at present, some of the others don't have the 64-bit iso listed at all.


Some mirrors take up to 48 hours to sync. Usually the fastest to sync is NLUUG and the slowest is AARNet. I'll wait and see.

EDIT: btw, I fixed the path, thanks.

Slacko64-6.3.0

Strictly 'Updates' starting from the original Slacko64 all the way up to- Slacko64-6.3.0 - (All were with load main program from a DVD with a savefolder on the HDD)

The update(s) went without a problem one... and so far all previous installed apps etc., are still working as they should and I haven't seen any bugs thus far.

(your '32-bit libs' doing a good job on 32bit sfs's & apps)

'Congradulations Mic... well done!' Very Happy

By coincidence, I was wondering about the libraries this morning.

I had downloaded the new slacko64, and I think was unable to run opera 12.16 and maybe another "32-bit" software.

Sorry, can you please tell me where to get those libraries?

Thank you,
Sheldon

Couple of issues with 64-6.3.0:
SiS190 NIC not working in SNS (default), ditto after selecting from list in Douglas' setup. Showstopping at present.
Personally, don't care for the overhead Gnomic bar. No grippers on sides to haul it down?
Otherwise, looking pretty fast.

good work!

running well on my netbook but i needed to swap kernels for it to run on my desktop, my nvidia card really doesn't like the 4 series kernels, hopefully this will be resolved as the 4 series progresses.

installed a few applications from the PPM ...wesnoth, audacious, gimp, gnuchess all working fine.

one thing i noticed ... with the new firewall_ng , if you have a wireless connection and set up the firewall before setting up your wireless connection, the firewall stops the browser connecting to the internet, it's rectified by re-running the firewall setup.

I also needed to swap kernels to run in VMWare fusion.

In general I have the sense that 4.x kernels have more issues that the LTS 3.x. Or maybe is just a configuration issue. How do they compare with the 3.x

A far chance might be the firmware compatibility with the new kernels. Is the firmware tarball updated after the 4.x kernels?

Hi

Anyone want to test Skype?

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko6414.1/skype-4.3.0.37.sfs


It works! I edited in /opt/pa4-32/etc/pulse/default.pa the following lines:

Code:
load-module module-alsa-sink device=hw:1,0
load-module module-alsa-source device=hw:0,0

IDK if 666philb's are the same. I have put them in slacko's SFS Manager. Menu(Applications) > Setup > SFS Manager download and install sfs files.

As for running old opera, you have to start it differently. If it is tarted with a script (/usr/bin/opera?) you have to start it like this:

Code:
start32 opera "$@"

Understood (I hope). Thanks a lot, 01micko and sszindian .
Will try it soon and let you know.

Wired connection with SiS190:
Retried all three options many times. SNS and Frisbee never work (the latter has never worked on any of my kit, GB is mostly on PPPoA).
After a while, managed to get Douglas' setup to stick, but the procedure is definitely flaky. Vaguely seems a bit deja vu, but memory cells can't recall previous discussions.
No issues with SiS190 on Werewolf64.

I have made improvements to SNS. I used to have lots of trouble getting a connection.

We need to do a diff on /usr/local/simple_network_setup, latest Quirky 7.3.3, with latest Slacko/woof-CE.
