Hey Runtt...your defection from the kennels is an unpleasant surprise....i hardly know what to say! Sad except that i'm chuffed to have hosted your beautiful, cool pups in the past, and to have enjoyed a working kind of friendship with you, and thank you for all that you gave to us Very Happy

I know things change, but i for one don't always like it - maybe i'm getting old and too comfortable with the way things have been..

But - it's about you and your life, which i hope is treating you well, and i wish you the very best of everything that brings you happiness.
Thanks for popping in to say cya, instead of simply never being heard from again Wink

Cheers,
russoodle (dudette)

Macpup is back again on my Puppy player ( the computer). By spending days and nights on testing and trying to repair bugs, you forget to use your computer for your pleasure. The Pendrive was buried in a drawer; Gnome-mplayer shows the artist cover, how did i do ?
This pendrive was done from a CD, when i was young.
Macpup last use nov 2015.. two years; But our forum does not speak of macpup enough.

Subject description: Make
 

Hi to all,

It was a lengthy process, but I succeeded to install
weather satellite picture capturing program WxtoImg
from their homepage, to Macpup 550.

All of Craig Anderson's instructions are clearly displayed
on the web site.

It helps of course to have a custom built RX2 receiver
for 137Mhz and turnstile aerial to hand, to enable the
program to run properly.
A radio scanner is better than nothing but overall inadequate.

Download, install and run for this distro:
wxtoimg-linux-2.10.11.tar.gz

Here are the install strings to Terminal:

cd Downloads
gunzip < wxtoimg-linux-2.10.11.tar.gz | sh -c "(cd /; tar -xvf -)"

Drag a run shortcut xwxtoimg from /usr/local/bin
to desktop.

If you can achieve to receive beautiful weather images, then well done.
Regards.

Hi to all.
A caution.
Don't accidentally right mouse click on the blue close down
button, as it will disappear from the dock and you won't
be able to access the shut down dialogue.

Not being a programmer, I had in panic to wipe
and re-install 550 back on to the memory stick.
It's a shame there isn't any coding protection
to prevent this happening.
Regards.

I'm missing this distro a lot. I hope there will be some developments soon. This is the one of the best distro so far. The last Firefox supported is around 47 and I cannot do a lot with it these days. I'm not good in programming but I would love to help as well so we can continue some developments of this distro.

My Mum told me she'd had enough of Windows 10 on her laptop (an HP 635 from 2011), and could I put Linux on it?

It's a long story as to how I managed it (this afternoon and evening, after Christmas dinner too), but anyway, thanks to Macpup 550 and the Frisbee configuration manager I'm posting from it now. It succeeded in connecting to the Internet where two Ubuntu-based distros failed.

I also managed to save Mum's photos from her Windows partition to a pendrive.

Merry Christmas everyone!

[EDIT: I've since swapped it for a more up to date distro, X-Slacko 4.3.]

It's hard to tell from the website when this pup was last updated. A release history would be nice. I'm guessing the last version was in 2015.
