No, but you'll easily find it in Additional Software, in the Browsers subsection.

Haven't tested whether this works on Carolina: Vanguard Edition Release 2 December 2014.............

Earlier versions are still available

Peebee's version doesn't seem to play nicely with Carolina VG, for me at least.

How do I install Vanguard- through a built-in program, or from the command line?

Hi tigersong,

I think we've run into a problem with the many uses of the word "install". Carolina-Vanguard is a distinct Operating System. It doesn't install the same way a pet would install, that is into a an operating system.

I've forgotten which Pup you're running and from what media --CD/DVD, Hard-drive or USB-Key. For all, you'll have to download Carolina-Vanguard's ISO.

If your running Pup from a CD/DVD, you can use one of your current Pup's Multimedia applications --perhaps pBurn -- to burn the Carolina-Vanguard to a CD/DVD.

If your running Pup from a hard-drive or a large enough USB-Stick, you can easily create a multiboot environment.

1. Create a folder on your Hard-drive or USB-Stick: using Rox, right-click an empty space, select New and give it a unique name.
2. Right-click Vanguard's ISO --this will mount it, opening a folder to its files. Click-hold and drag the following files to the folder on your hard-drive/USB-stick: initrd.gz, vmlinuz, and every one ending with .sfs. Select copy.
3. Right-click Vanguard's ISO to close it.
4. Use your File-manager to browse to Menu.lst. Click it to open it in your text editor. Scroll down to the bottom of your current Pup's listing. Press return a couple of times to create some empty space. Copy and paste a copy of your current Pup's listing into the empty space. Then edit it --making changes to properly reflect the location of Carolina-Vanguard's files. Save, and your done. The next time you boot the computer you'll have the choice to boot into Carolina-Vanguard.

Caution:Keep in mind that together Carolina's puppy_vlina.sfs and advr_vlina.sfs need 500 Mb of space. Your SaveFile will need space. And Carolina has a great many applications you didn't know you need until you find out you can get them. Laughing So plan on using at least 2 Gbs of storage.

Right now, it's Vanguard on a USB-key.

Subject description: Pnethood fails to mount my shared network drive
 

I have used pNethoood with no problem on Saluki
It just connects straight away to the shared drive on our network

In Carolina Vanguard I get the attached error log saying it failed to mount.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks

I always liked Pnethood, but Carolina doesn't come with it.

It does have a great network discovery tool build into the file manager.

Have you clicked on "network" in XFE file manager in hte left panel?

Yes I agree Pnethood is great. I found a version in the Carolina Puppy Packet manager and assumed it would work. But no luck.

Yes I tried the network option on the file manager but it failed to connect. Can't remember the error message and don't have the netbook with me today.

Vanguard needs members to create packages specifically for it, the PPM doesn't cater for Vanguard pet's so they can't be added,
thought if sfs packages are used they can be added to the sfs downloads, as long as they are named appropriately "vanguard", as they will not be usable in Carolina 1.3.

Battleshooter appears to be missing in action, so I don't know whats to happen in regard to Vanguard development.

There is a missing link in the puppy system, the programmers for new software... Ubuntu ones are now transfered to I-phones or servers.
In spite of improvment of the movie theatre, i feel as having always the same movies provided to users.
I am fond of Saluki. Carolina is too big for a Puppy.
I wanted to give my opinion. A forum is a Libre exchange site. My opinion is only one vote. [/b]

UPDATE
Ok so it has takena while to post back, mainly because I haven't had time to find the solution. Well I can't get the pnethood carolina pet to work. Which is a shame because it is a great tool. However, finally had some time over Christmas break to sit down and play with Carolina Vanguard properly.
I used the built in Gigolo app - one I had not come across before and low and behold it connects to my networked drive.
Have to select the WindowShare option not the SSH one. Then type in the IP address - the drive is plugged straight into my router so that was easy and straight away the drive was found by Gigolo.
Perfect.

I am now working through my wish list of applications that I need to finally ditch windows for good.

Have the main culprits ticiked off:
Printing - CUPS works well with my HP printer using the additional hpLip pet
Now using Shinobar's portable firefox and portable thunderbird - so email and browsing are covered
Libre office covers off most other things.
Impressed to see that Vanguard includes Skype -now I just need it to recognise the built in webcam on my netbook - although I may just buy a new HD USB cam and try that
Now if there is any chance that I can connect a Citrix Receiver pet then I'll be all set for work too.
