Subject description: New Community Editions
 

Update:

Talking Stick (see below)
has served its purpose Smile
We have a wiki
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/TalkingStick

Two code bases - Bravo!
and two teams (working on parts of each others projects)
and not one but two new Community Editions coming up.
You lucky dogs!


based on Puppy 2.14r (retro)
maximum stability for older hardware
this already undergoing serious support and an ISO
for testing will be available soon


based on Puppy 3.02 Alpha with many cutting edge elements

Smile

so... can we make feature requests here?

+1 for Opera, preconfigured with all the plug-ins working out-of-the-box.

+1 for Xfce; fast, light DE that conforms with most of most people's expectations of a GUI.

hmmm, maybe a poll for feature requests could be created, once some candidates have been gathered.

Started some wiki pages.

Artwork - http://puppylinux.org/wikka/TalkingStickArt
Progress - http://puppylinux.org/wikka/TalkingStickProgress
Ideas - http://puppylinux.org/wikka/TalkingStickIdeas
Contributors - http://puppylinux.org/wikka/TalkingStickContributors

Very rough. Edit away.

For the record:
- Gimp over Gimpshop
- As many browsers as seen fit
- Real push for a single quality IceWM (or other WM) theme

Create a Poll (probably best under 'Cutting Edge' or 'Puppy Projects' - then edit your post to provide a link

Wiki mini-site menu added.

Plus here's a quick codename logo idea.

Puppy 2.15 CE is absolutely great and convinced me at first sight! Since then I'm using Puppy Linux (and only Puppy Linux!) every day!

If you're interested, I can offer to take care of the X11-integration: including proprietary graphics drivers (ATI, nVidia), hardware-acceleration (2D, 3D) and the new Xorg-Wizard I'm currently working on.

My system is based on Xorg 7.2 and the newest proprietary graphics drivers.

I'm currently working as an IT-teacher (means a lot of spare time), but have more than 20 years of experience as a system programmer.

Great news Smile

That wizard can go in - and be submitted directly to Barry

Do you have ATI and Nvidia compiled for the kernel in 2.17.1? (as far as I know this kernel will be in 2.18 and 2.20) - you might consider working with Warrens 9WhoDoEzpup (we might have an EZpup TalkingStick edition?)

I am not sure whether to suggest using
Puppy v2.20experiment1 (which Barry will provide soon) or 2.18 (if made available)
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Puppy220

Ideally the wizard will work with all Puppys from 2.16 onward (when we adopted the new kerenel)

Smile

Many thanks have updated the wiki
louder and cleaner (and weird sounding but that is OK, I am weirder than I sound)

Smile


LOF suggested this:

Just saw this over at the Wikka site. http://wikkawiki.org/Mp3Player
Maybe you could use it (if you aren't already) for putting your awesome podcasts on the wiki.

Cheers and looking forward to Talking Stick,


OK well I have used that in the tmxxine wikka wiki but could not get it working here
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/TalkingStick

Hi there,

I could support with testing-testing-testing (old and new machines), small programs (bash, basic), and music/sound design.

I visited the above links to the wiki but found them still empty (mostly). In order to avoid posting errors, I prefer to ask the question right here: Where can I apply?

Thanks for feedback.

Rudy

For now we have to test from 2.17.1

One way to accomodate some of the favoured window managers / browsers and programs etc is to use SFS and a menu/downloader an approach I started here
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=126625#126625

If you can test and get that working, it should work for all Puppys at least from Puppy 2.16 including whatever Talking Stick morphs into.

As time evolves I am sure other puplet creators will chip in with code that we can use adapt . . .

We are right at the beginning Smile

May the Force Be With Us

Graphic drivers would be the biggest issue. Ezpup is EZ enough to install for spiffyness. Some people have wanted voice recognition and virtual machines now may be a good time for this.

+opera
+conky (hope whodo puts this in EZpup)
1 or 2 games that can take advantage of 3d drivers (limit to 2mb?)
+The Gnu wallpaper from MeanPup unless something awesome turns up
+OCR software like GROCR preferable something that works better but is just as small
+speech recognition http://www.voxforge.org/home/downloads/quickstart-download
+xfce4.4 as a package from NOP will it conflict with conky?
+xmms with more codecs add mime types for .it .xm .mod .s2m and other files at www.modules.pl or www.modulez.org (minuscule music files)
+we need to wait for upgrade to gtk 2.10 for compiz-fusion compatablity
+no gxine something else that is faster
can xmms run from the console? or is there a small console module player
if so play music like sabayon linux while seting up and after boot this may require xmms if so how could it be started up at boot with the correct file
+package a module tracker for puppy
+more modem drivers
+sfs of latest wine
+a new megapuppy sfs that is not in sections so i can download it from a highspeed conection and save it to usb to take home where i have dialup and couldn't download it even if it were in sections
that is about all i can think of now some are serious requests others just tentative ideas

Edit: here are 3 sets of drivers for 2.17+ for Nvidia: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=20997

Edit strike xmms since BMP is here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=136012
or maybe xmms2 http://wiki.xmms2.xmms.se/index.php/Download_XMMS2

My current thinkingis that 2.18 will be a bug-fix and minor enhancements of 2.17.1, with my new 'init' script. The disadvantage of that is that it is still using all the same main set of packages -- xorg 7.0, gtk 2.8.
An alpha of 2.18 is not far away.

v3.00 is intended to be a complete new set of base packages. New gcc, glibc, xorg, gtk, the works. At this stage, I can't estimate when the experimental or alpha of that will be available. Probably in about a week I can give a rough time estimate.

The reason I want to update gcc and glibc is that people are already encountering the problem when they try to use binary packages from other distros like Slackware 12, and there is an error msg about "glibc 2.4" needed.

I've added a few of these requested apps to the Talking Stick Ideas page on the wiki.

Remember, folks: it's a wiki, you can edit it too. Wink
