Since I already have qt-482 installed I downloaded and compiled
Smplayer-16.8.0 and Smtube-16.7.2, works well with your Mplayer.

Also saw the tips on rearranging the desktop and moved the panel that
was hiding the drive icons.

Puduan-6.0.0 is working great on my old p4.

Thanks again.

Hi, Billtoo.

Thanks for the compliment!

Great desktop you have there in your pic! (I'm jealous!) Wink

About SMPlayer and SMTube: did you compile them on this Puduan? If so, is there a
possibility you can make them available (including the Qt) for the rest of us?

Thanks in advance. And have a great Sunday! Smile

Hello all.

I've added a "Credits" post (#3) and a "Special Features" post (#4) on page 1.

BFN.

Congratulations Christian!

Working to satisfaction here in qemu. The qemu video driver is fbdev so unaccelerated it has a few quirks but of course qemu/fbdev have their limitations. So the attached screen shot may not be what is expected. BTW, as reported, I had to set a wallpaper manually.

I downloaded iceweasel from ppm and that works fine too.

Sound worked ootb. Basic puppy staples all working in limited testing.

Cheers!

Congrats Musher0!
It must be mindbreaking fun to build a complete puppy.

Can you give a little more explanation on the what, why, how of your build?
Or did you already explain it somewhere on the forum?

I am tempted to try it; the wmx intrigues me. But I run on an old Palomino with geforce256 and I guess you use a new kernel and xorg?

I can run Tahr - not palemoon though, I got no SSE2 - and if I need something I always look in the repos of jessie. So why would you build this if there is already Tahr?

Hello, foxpup.

The discussion that led to this thread was:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=917394&sort=lastpost#917394

As to why I built a Puduan Puppy while a TahrPup existed: keep this to yourself:
I wanted to create trouble!!! Twisted Evil

Joking aside: Puppy has had the capacity to build a Jessie for a long time. People
were starting to make fun of us and discredit us on DistroWatch because we didn't.
(Nah. That may be just another [bad] joke!)

How about: a distro that can feed on many repos didn't. Now Puppy has one more
restaurant to choose from!

As to the technical aspects of your question, they will be better answered by a
real techie.

Edit: The kernel I chose for this Puduan is version 3.14.0. There are other kernel
options in the Woof-CE when you get to that item. For the record, as I am writing
these words, the last stable Linux kernel listed on kernel.org is version 4.7.2.


But I do encourage you to download the latest woof-CE and dive right in!

BFN.

@01micko.

Yeah, it's wiggling!

It'll need to go through the usual paces (beta, rc) before final publication.

Thanks for taking it for a test drive! (And thanks for the initial push!) Wink

BFN.

I just tested them on a new puduan install and they work fine, however I installed smtube last and it caused the computer to freeze, after rebooting everything was fine.
Maybe install the smtube pet first?

Thanks for the archival space and thanks for the thanks, Puppus! Smile
Both are much appreciated. If that sounds recursive, then it is! (Ha! Devs!) Laughing

@Billtoo: Thanks again!
( I think that you can stop testing now! Laughing Unless you're doing it for the fun of it! Wink )

I already had done some reading there. I liked it when you decide to try to get to X because otherwise no one is interested.

Quote:
It's one of the build choices offered in the woof-CE.

Who put this choice there without using it? And why? You ask something along these lines when you ask about "wanderer", right?

So basically you just built it because it can be done.

Diving into woofCE would probably kill my dear old machine.
First I have to look for a more powerful PC.
For the moment I just dive into puppy.sfs (and pupsave.fs) to take out or put in as i like.

I will take a dive into your Puduan Puppy though. The kernel is allright. I just cannot use the nvidia driver.
