@Django: You are welcome. And thanks for the suggestion. Trash can be in the next version update or maybe if CEL comes up with his remaster, we can request him to add this.

Thanks to all for working on the MACPUP, MACOSX stuff. Other linux have versions that look like a MAC but talk about bloat, huge size, Like gOS that is on the linux system WALMART used to sell, try almost 700 meg, dont even fit on some blank CDs I have.

Off to vacation see ya all next week!!

Alpha 1B works fine been on and off MON now TUE. Did you add new items? In setup Cups + a older printer set up, and other items? System its on, gateway, was in the trash. Has 98SE and now Puppy. Use alpha to trouble shoot system, looked like was locking up but just reseat of power connecter on hard drive. I used pfix=ram but Alpha still used swap PARTITION so started to act strange when HDD turned off? Upgraded ram, noisey cool fan and now system from trash as solid as ALPHA 1B
XORG, because of hardware in this system, will always go to LCD and older CRT selection screen, never to auto select. With all the old STUFF I have around the manual selection for Xorg works better sometimes then Xorg auto select. Anyone know how to change or set up XORG so it would be easy to get to this manual select page at will? Then in other systems I could turn auto select off.

@earlytv: By manual select, do you mean the one you get for xorg setup from the setup menu after booting up?

This list starts with several LCD screens then several old CRT screens to pick from and at the bottom if you dont like any of those it lets you input the specs of your monitor. So you will have a LCD at 640x480, a LCD at 800x600, ect, then a old 14 inch CRT at 800x600, a old 15 inch CRT at 1024x768, ect.

Puppy in general and this derivative in particular are the bee's knees. I would go so far as to suggest that the I-candy you folks produce collectively and individually, equals or surpasses that of E17.

All the best,

I had a look and a play with an iMac yesterday and was impressed except for the price.

I liked that bar thingy at the bottom of the screen that enlarges when the cursor is placed upon it. Is this called the dock that people here are referring to?

@smokey01: Yes it is the dock that people are referring to. In Macpup, we are using wbar which is low on resources but still gives a good look. But the one that would be more closer to the dock you see in an iMac would be the Cairo dock, but it is a little heavy on resources.

prit1, Does wbar do the wave motion when the cursor has focus or does that only happen with the Cairo dock?

TIA.

@smokey01: Wbar does magnify the icon when the cursor is over that icon. I dont know if this is what you are referring to as wave motion. Try Macpup and you can see the wbar in action. You can download Macpup (latest version) from the first post. Try the first link (sendspace.com) as this is a fast download location. I have this account for another 7 or 8 more days. The other links will keep working.
