Subject description: minor updates - wine, virus deffs, xdelta, open with ghostview
 

http://www.pcpuppyos.com/
http://www.pcpuppyos.com/download.html <---NOTE: BAD ISO, use Caneri's mirror until we fix this
http://www.pcpuppyos.com/WineTools_preconfigured.pet <---this is missing, and out of date anyways... will be corrected with the next version

Caneri is mirroring it here (thanks!):
pcpuppyos_3.01-rc4.iso - 602 MB
md5sum
9b88d1c3067f8adfaca1e7439a90af25 pcpuppyos_3.01-rc4.iso

pcpos_RC3_to_RC4.delta - 16 MB

If you already have the .iso file from RC3, you don't need to download the new iso. Instead, you can install xdelta.pet and then download the pcpos_RC3_to_RC4.delta file, which is only 16 MB. To apply it, put both it and the old iso in the same directory. Then run this:
Code:
xdelta3 -d -s pcpuppyos_3.01-rc3.iso pcpos_RC3_to_RC4.delta pcpuppyos_3.01-rc4.iso

When it finishes, you should have a fresh shiny pcpuppyos_3.01-rc4.iso file, who's md5sum should match the one liked to above.



Changes in RC4:
made ramdisk size setting dynamic in initrd.gz (user should see no difference)
updated Wine to 0.9.54
updated ClamAV deffs to Feb 6, 2008
added Xdelta
made Firefox show "open with ghostview" as an option when downloading a .pdf file


Enjoy Smile

Hey thanks Pizza,

The xdelta.pet and xdelta method of updating isos is sweet.

I'm glad your onboard with this. Spread the word to all the puplets about xdelta...it will make the user experience much better....as in downloading a small file to update what people already have...great!

Thanks for posting the command for xdelta...Maybe all new xdelta updates should be accompanied with the command to merge the new update...you know for us noobs and cli challenged people..lol

Eric

Downloaded full RC4 and tested on both machines no problem. Will get to a WIFI spot on Wed to test that.

Just for the record, this is no longer expected to be final. Found some bugs in the install script, and now some missing files in the development environment. I'll also be updating Firefox and Wine and Pebble, and probably adding the syslinux/isolinux improvements I've been working on for TS. Some other little minor things.

And of course, it will include a .diff file so the full iso won't need to be downloaded.

Expect it sometime between Wednesday and Sunday, hopefully around Thursday.

Testing at the San Antonio Public Library WIFI. Took two times of detecting the WIFI to get it to auto DHCP. Am on line right now with it. Will try at San Antonio College about 6 PM. I always have problems with the WIFI there.

PostPosted: Wed 13 Feb 2008, 15:55    Post subject: Crazy RC4 boot  

I finally got a good md5sum from the mirror site in Canada.

I burned it to a CD-RW and it didn't verify as a good burn with cd2iso..

I burned it to a DVD-RW and it DID verify with cd2iso as a good burn..

Then I booted it up - it was slow booting - but that was expected but it took longer than I wanted!

But when it came on the screen after the Xorg Wizard was finished - none of the PCPuppyOS programs were there.

The email was Seamonkey, the write icon was Abiword, - it just was a Puppy 3.01.

I typed mut in a console to see if somehoe PCPuppyOS had mounted one of my Pup_save files. No there was no /intrd/mnt/pup_save file there.

Mut won't show the save_file. If it's mounted, it would be at /mnt/home/pup_save.2fs and /initrd/mnt/dev_save/pup_save.2fs (which are the same place - /mnt/home is a symlink). If not, /mnt/home won't exist (may not anyways in 3.xx) and /initrd/mnt/dev_save/ will be empty.

Another possibility is that the wrong pup_301.sfs file got loaded. That can happen because Puppy lets you copy the pup_xxx.sfs file to the harddrive so it loads faster than from the CD, so if you have a pup_301.sfs from another version of Puppy on the drive it could feasibly be loaded. That doesn't seem like what happened though because it would have booted faster rather than slowly.

If it wasn't either of the above, then I'm not sure what happened. Try booting with the puppy pfix=ram option though. That should at least take the harddrive(s) out of the equation.

At San Antonio College, had the same problem here as 3.02A and 3.92A4, If the OS will keep the WIFI card on this HP zv6000 alive then you can auto DHCP no problem. But if it turns it off before you auto DHCP you will not get anywhere. The internal card is a Broadcom BCM43xx series. Puppy 3.01 without updates seems to keep it alive. Once you get an IP address it stays on.

That's odd. I can't think of any reason why it would behave differently.
