Must say I'm a little surprised that so few problems have been reported with this release -- though of course not disappointed Smile I thought I would here from more ATI users, I can only assume that the fglrx driver is working fine? That's got to be good news!

@prehistoric: A 350Mhz PII! That's amazing Smile That's Puppy for you. Installing Linux on a badger. lol. I think there'd be some pretty serious compatibility issues, perhaps we should wait for the next kernel release?

@Boo: Yeah "The Priest and the Beast" was a good one, I think Spider gets a door in his head in the end too doesn't he? Then him and Rudi have a big show down at the end against the baddies. Yes 'off the wall' definitely. I'm sure the BBC website had the first 2 shows of the new series on their site, but they don't appear to be there anymore Sad No I didn't see Mr. Ross crimping but I see youtube has the show in 9 parts -- I'm slowly working my way through them!
So have you got wNOP working with the fglrx driver? You will have unless you used the manual option in the C-F wizard at first boot to chose the radeon driver. It's just that when I tried it with a radeon 9700 performance was awful. Do you have any niggles? Unusually slow scrolling or anything?

Hi Tom,
Yes I am using the fglrx driver and it works fine. Even video runs fairly smoothly when I'm dragging the cube around.
If pushed to find a niggle, it would be that maximising of windows with the "animation effect" enabled can sometimes be a bit choppy. But minimising works perfectly. Its just a bit of time lag after selecting the app.

Here are my specs to compare with your 9700 experience.

Acer T/Mate 290 Lappy
Centrino 1.5 ghz
ATI mobility 9700 64mb vram
1gig Ram
Booting from cd with a save file.

I got me some Jazz Funk (Compiz) Fusion Very Happy

@ DC
Have a read here. There's a few post about half way down the thread.

Very Happy
Hey Tom,
tested wnop 0.2 on two machines in my house.
1st...Compaq..PIII ..600mhz..160mb ram..I810 video...32mb vram
......no such luck on this dinosaur..falls back to xfce when x starts....
......read a post about a modprobe for I810 chips but haven`t tried it as i was going for "out of the box" setup...prob the low ram or vram doing it..linux newbie..still learning..more on this dino later..
2nd...Dell laptop...1.6 ghz.. centrino...512 mb ram..I 915 video...64mb vram..
...Works like a dream...animations are smooth and clear..even when "wobbling" a video!!
..cant seem to get it to drop to a cube tho...only the inside view...prob a hotkey i`ve missed...
..put the cd in my wifes laptop to test it ,..now she refuses to shut it off..wants me to install it permanently...loves it ..and she`s never used linux before...
....ok now the negative...cant install much of anything...missing LOTS of dependencies..
...wordwriter installed and works fine..Abiword and firefox did not...
...i know its a beta and i cant wait for a full fledged version...
...also would love to see compiz paired with enlightenment which i use on machine #1 and LOVE...my next machine WILL be running Wnop!!!!!...Hail Puppy!!!


... Wink Captain, i believe this species has amused itself to death...

Here's a screenshot of wNOP v0.2 running on the ASUS EeePC 701 Smile

No configuration needed - runs out-of-the-box as booted from a frugal install on a USB stick. Only problem was lack of 800x480 resolution - it's running at 800x600, so 'stretched' a bit horizontally.

Great demo for Puppy and the EeePC Razz

Single click story.
Had a longer google and found some forums on xfce.
It was reported that the desktop icons are fixed on double click for now. The only way for single click was to use icons in panels.

Will keep looking / trying

@Boo: Pushing for niggles! That's what I like to hear Smile With such little negative feedback from the fglrx driver, perhaps this release should have had the honour of a full number version. Concerning that niggle, do all the various maximise animations execute with a delay? Perhaps there are some that don't.

@puppyluvr: Yeah that dino does seem to be cutting it a bit fine, but I wouldn't couldn't call it extinct yet. If you post the wNOPdump file that appears on yer desktop after a
Code:
wNOPinspect

from the terminal, I can tell you more. Yeah wobbling video's great! About programs not installing, I know I had problems with abiword, i can't remeber where I got the missing dependency from now, I think I ended up just gettting it from slackware. Do you know about slackware? Puppy 3 is compatible with slackware packages, you can download them using a neat program called gslapt, I get stuff from it all the time, it's great. I've never got firefox from it though, last firefox install I did was thanks to thuxx, firefox2.0.11+flash9, worked perfectly.
I'm not sure C-F will work with enlightenment I'm afraid Sad
Glad yer liking the wobbly Puppy Smile

@pakt: Out of the box on an EeePC, that's great, yeah brilliant example to set for Puppy and the EeePC, I'll put the screenshot up on me website...

Easy Peasy -- just goto Menu->Settings->Settings Manager->User Interface and take your pick, my favourite at the moment is the KDE2 look. There are also loads of other themes available at www.xfce-looks.org

Subject description: inspect dumps from 2 comps
 

hello again tombh, Very Happy
firstly, here are the dumps from our comps. The one labeled Dinodump is (obviously) from the dinosaur, the other from my wifes lap top (a complete success so i didnt know if it would be usefull to you or not, so..)).... as for installing programs i put p.s.i. on it and works great (after a long hunt for "gtklist04mu").
now the question????..Where did you get the opera you put on wobbly?? finally an opera that works...WELL!!!..Flash, Speed Dial, everything works! (never could get speed dial to work on any of my puppy`s., and Flash in opera was iffy at best)..
I think wNOP will be great to "convert" `dozer`s to linux, eye candy never hurts! The out of the bos M$ look helps a lot too..
GREAT PUPPY !!!...Thanx.. Very Happy
