Hello Qiyasea,
At the start of your posting you say you can't get connected to the internet by ethernet or wifi, but at the end of your message I believe it reads that ethernet works?
As I don't use wifi and have only used ethernet and dialup, I had to guess what might be needed for wifi in TEENpup.
Something I didn't do was remove any of Puppy's Libs, only added to them.
Out of interest what do KwifiManager or RutilT under Network say when you run them. Have you tried to use them?

Can you please list your model of wifi as someone on the forum may have had the same problem and got it to work.

Hello DreamsToGo,
While about 20% of TEENpup came from Pets and Dotpups, alot was taken from debian, mandriva, slax and a few other distros. If I can get a good App going in TEENpup I will take it from anywhere I can.
Now you can help me. Do you remember the App you used in Ubuntu to connect your NFS If I can convert that package over to TEENpup then it will help you and I'm sure a few other users as well.
So the sooner you get me that info, the quicker I can get that App going for you, Hopefully!

Oh, thanks John for your quick reply! I appreciate your time & know how busy you are.

The Wizard recognizes the Ethernet "connection", but I can't get onto the internet. When I click the "test" button, it says there is a signal or connection or whatever for the ethernet. But when I go to set the DCHP?? the result comes back "unsuccessful". I'll try it again & see what happens as I loaded it only once.

Thanks a lot!

Edit: The laptop sticker says "802.11 b/g wireless LAN". That is the only info I have re wifi.

Update: Ran Kwifimanager - says "no networks detected"

Ran RutilT. 2 identical windows pop up. "Critical error. Can't get the frequency/channel. Code: 19"

Any ideas what to do next?

Thx!

Hi John,

OK thanks for your help and fast reply!

Since my last post I've been doing some reading about installing NFS support,

1) the first thing to do is to make sure the kernel has nfs support compiled in. TeenPUP uses kernel 2.6.18.1, so it should have nfs version 3 (the one we want) compiled in, unless a deliberate decision was made to exclude it. Unfortunately nfs is not shown in the /proc/filesystems file, so it would seem that nfs is not compiled in.

2) the second thing is to see if a module exists for nfs by trying to insert it into the kernel using insmod nfs. Unfortunately, again when I try this on TeenPUP it would seem that the module is not available.

I use the conditional on this because I am not really sure; I'm just following instructions found on http://nfs.sourceforge.net/nfs-howto/ar01s04.html.

But it would seem that nfs is not comiled in and not available as a module in TeenPUP.

You asked for the Ubuntu packages that I install on the client; there are two nfs-common and portmap.

Here is the info about the nfs-common package,


Description

server. Programs included: lockd, statd, showmount, nfsstat, gssd
and idmapd.

Hello DreamsToGo,
OK I've basically gone and got nfs, portmap + dependencies and converted them for use in TEENpup and zipped them and attached them here.

OK when you unzip the folder you will get /etc /lib /usr/ sbin and /var
Now I installed these in TEENpup 2008 and discovered that some of the files in /etc are already there in TEENpup and I recommend that you experiment with these running Live.
What you need to do is manually copy each file into its corresponding folder in TEENpup.

The good thing is that I you get it working, you can remaster TEENpup and then you won't have to do it all again.

By the way you posted I know you have a lot more knowledge in this area than I do.
Maybe we can find a patch for the kernel if this doesn't work.

At least now you should have something to work with. Good Luck

Hello DreamsToGo,
Sorry I believe you also need these. I have good feeling you may now get somewhere!
Note: There is some doubling up of files between the first Tar.gz and this one.

Hello crabbypup,
When I copy and paste Caneri's download link into "Prozilla Downloader" which comes in older versions of TEENpup and has never let me down when downloading anything. It as expected begins downloading TEENpup2008. It gives the correct iso size and has resume support shown for the iso.

If you have an older copy of TEENpup, use that to get the new version.

Thanks John and accessdenied for the update regarding Flash Video on money.cnn.com.

I downloaded and installed the Firefox dotpup and it works fine using Firefox. I am able to place the Firefox link into Desktop as an icon. But I do not know how to add it to the Applications menu. Would someone can help me?

Thanks in advance.

Hello langecom,
Normally a dotpup if created correctly will add Firefox to the menu. If you look in your menu is there entry called dotpups?
If so you will find Firefox on there.
If no you can try opening a terminal in /usr/sbin and type ./fixmenus and see if this adds firefox to your menu.
If non of this works, can you please supply the link to the dotpup of firefox you installed so that I can download it and write you a menu for it and you'll be able then to paste the menu into your system.

Hello John,

First thank you for the files containing the NFS stuff. But read on...

I started to look at the files required from your tar.gz's. The more I looked the more I became convinced that TeenPUP can do NFS natively!

There are two ways to mount a NFS share on the client. Either you issue a 'mount' command or if you want the share mounted at each boot time you add a line to the fstab file in /etc. This file tells linux which file systems to mount at boot time, including floppies, cds and hard disks.

The 'mount' command looks like this for an nfs mount

mount -t nfs 192.168.0.1:/home/hilary/MyMusic /root/HBW

where

-t specifies the type of mount, in this case NFS
192.168.0.1:/home/hilary/MyMusic = the server and the directory to mount
/root/HBW = the directory on the client that maps to the server. When mounted if you use roxx and point it to this directory you actually see the contents of the server and you can treat it as if it was on your local machine.

In TeenPUP I found the 'mount' command but it seems to be crippled because it won't work for NFS. Looking further I came across 'mount-FULL'. Bingo, this is the real mount command and is not crippled.

Issuing,

mount-FULL -t nfs 192.168.0.1:/home/hilary/MyMusic /root/HBW

started NFS services including portmap and mounted the share correctly. To test use your file manager and point it to the local directory - you should see the remote files. I did. It works! and without installing anything.

Conclusion NFS is availble in TeenPUP.

Now what I want to do is mount the share at every boot time. I have added a line in the /etc/fstab file as follows (the syntax is slightly different from the command)

192.168.0.1:/home/hilary/MyMusic /root/HBW nfs ro,nolock

Its pretty much the same except that its in a different order and I have specified some options,

ro = mount the filesystem read-only
nolock = don't use locking on the files.

ro because I do not want to add,change,delete files from the client and nolock because its read only and you don't need locking; also its faster.

Now, I'm still experimenting with this and I'll report back - its not exactly working as I would like.

Best wishes

Hilary

Hello DreamsToGo,
It appears that you have a lot of experience in this area in Linux. How long have you been a Linux User.
This is great stuff and I think it will make a great "How to" And I look forward to it all working how you want.

I've been thinking about how you might have been getting on with NFS and I thought are any of the network tools included in the menu able to do what you want for example: Knetattach, Krfb etc.

But it now looks like you'll get what you want any way.

I look for to reading how you succeeded Very Happy Very Happy

Hi John,

Success!! and it was surprisingly easy!

This post helped me out, see the last message,

http://www.webservertalk.com/archive235-2006-5-1529685.html

Apparantly Puppy doesn't use the fstab file! so putting an nfs share definition in it did not work as I found out above.

Instead Puppy provides a /etc/rc.d/rc.local file which is there to let you customise the boot process. In TeenPUP it includes the call to start CUPS for example.

All I needed to do was to add the line

mount-FULL -t nfs -o ro,nolock 192.168.0.1:/home/hilary/MyMusic /root/HBW

to the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file.

Puppy runs this file at boot time. It succcessfully mounted the nfs share on the client and now when I go to the file manager I see the contents of the server directory /home/hilary/MyMusic.

As with anything, all is not sunshine because it seems to take a long time to mount the nfs share - but I'm not complaining - it's still faster than Ubuntu.

Now I have a linux distro, fast to install, fast to boot and with everything included. Thank you, John and all who have helped make this distro.

Now to explain the mount-FULL command.

mount-FULL -t nfs -o ro,nolock 192.168.0.1:/home/hilary/MyMusic /root/HBW

1) in Puppy you have to use the mount-FULL command, which is delivered as standard, because the versin of mount as used in busybox is not set up to handle nfs mounts.
2) -t = the filesystem to mount, in my case nfs
3) -o = options, ro=read only, nolock = well, no lock
4) 192.168.0.1:/home/hilary/MyMusic = the server and the directory on the server that you want to share. You have to make the directory on the server shared.
5) /root/HBW = the directory on the client that will be connected to the server. This directory must exist on the client before you issue the mount-FULL command and it should be empty, but need not be. For a mount that is executed at boot time, going to this directory on the client will always show the files on the server. However you may only want to connect to the server occasionally in which case you would issue the mount-FULL command when appropriate through the terminal. In this case you could store things in the local directory for when you are not connected to the server.

Again, thank you for your help.
