I keep a version with parole in my toolcase. Playing to-day.. Parole is for Xfce.. Better than VLC, Gnome-mplayer ? No, but that changes the menu, the so classical menu
Something different, from time to time. To day, spanish de america del sur.
Just use my Puppy, no removal, no add , as it is.. as a passenger on Sunday relaxing time.
X-Slacko Slim 4.2r ??? (unique, stable, and flexible)

Hello I'm currently playing with tiny core packages. I hope that it will reduce the size of X-Slacko Slim. As of now I'm successfully created a smaller initrd using xz compression and some tiny core packages which is 1.7Mb compared to current initrd which is 2.8Mb but the user friendliness was still remain.

Also tiny core version of mplayer works. its files size was 10Mb compared to 12Mb current size. I hope gstreamer will become smaller as well.

Do as you like, Mistfire.. you will be able to go one step backwards if you did the wrong way. Don't let Dogs be slimmer than our puppies Smile
Some devs get their Puppy Slimmer by providing tiny browser (elinks) or no browser.. That is not valuable..
XZ compression is better for downloading, but worse for opening.. Not really important.. some seconds to start are nothing when you spend hours and hours playing your Puppy..

Dammit - my Vaio VGN-TX37GP would have been ideal for this I think, but alas the mbo carked about 3 weeks ago. Might work well in the replacement Lenovo x130e however... thanks, mistfire

PostPosted: Wed 30 Aug 2017, 03:40    Post subject: r53 is really good  

mistfire,

Not sure what you did, but r53 works superb on my DELL E6430 laptop.
Maybe it is in the 4.12 kernel, maybe it is the zdrive, not sure, but this works flawless.

No video (blackscreen) problems anymore (the last version without this problem was r37).
Wifi works
Audio works
Touchpad and mouse work
Ethernet works

The rest I still have to test, but it looks like this one is compatible with my hardware.

Thanxxxxx

P.S. what is the devx you used for this version ? Any changes for this kernel ?

Dear mistfire,

I have used your X-Slacko Slim 4.2r53 today, and must say it is working fine.

Just some remarks:

1/ I use it in on a laptop in an electronics development environment (hobby) and regular need a serial port terminal. After years of using different tools, I have settled on using Gtk-term. There is a PET on ibiblio, in the earlier PET folders called: gtkterm-0.99.7-rc1-w5c.pet that works flawless on X-Slacko.
It is small in size (37k) registers in the menu, and would be a nice addition to X-Slacko's functionality.

2/ Maybe a bug: When I open "Treesize" it eats up some 100 Mbyte of RAM (Taskmanager, RAM use from 140Mbyte to 240 Mbyte). But after closing Treesize again, this is not freed up again. Btw, it is not clear to me why you value Treesize over the Gdmap in regular puppy, that gives better overview. But that is personal I think.

2a/ In taskmanager there are also 3 instances of "wrapper-1.0". Any idea what these are used for ? Is this related to Wine preparation ? Curiousity mainly. It works, so I should not bother.....

3/ Out of curiousity too: your X-Slacko Slim has 2 remarkable features that are not common in other puppies: IRDA and WINE. Although Wine is not included in the iso, preparations are installed. What is your application ? Are you supporting old PDA's, phones, printers (IRDA ?) or what ??

Regards,

Volhout

P.S. I default also install DOSBOX 0.74, but that is larger in size....

It is a bug of treesize. Its the developers flaw not from me. wrapper-1.0 was xfce panel items

PostPosted: Thu 07 Sep 2017, 02:42    Post subject: WINE  

dear mistfire,

thanks for adding gtk term to the image. it works fine.
yesterday tried to add wine, and package manager gave met a list of 10 options.
I tried a few, but in the end realized that wine pulls in mono, and gecko, and in the end exceeded my save file size.

Do you use an SFS that contains all ?

Reason I am asking: I try to revive an old project on a PIC microchip, and have pk2cmd installed to program the pic through pickit2. That part works on Xslacko-Slim. But I would use an old windows version of MPLAB to develop. Thus the requirement for WINE. It is a try, since I am not sure the old MPLAB even works under wine.

Regards,

Volhout
