T_B, I'm like you, one of the first things I try on a distribution is to play BBC streams. None of them play them 'out of the box', not even Ubuntu, my reference distro.

For Puppy 4, I have installed Xine, with its mozilla plugin. I find it much better than gxine. To play BBC streams I have had to install Mplayer and its plugins too. Works fine.


Thanks for the advise. I will wait for the next update before trying it, I'm having problems saving my first session.

Puppy was the distro with the best out of the box experience for me, but since I own an eeepc the Xandros version for eeepc has become the standard.
Everything works out of the box and a boot time of less than 30 sec!

DreamsToGo and capoverde

The problem with JWM configuration saying "New config corrupt. Keeping original", has already been addressed by BarryK. Check Barry's blog and this thread.

PostPosted: Sat 12 Apr 2008, 15:40    Post subject: Menu/System/Hardinfo...->Computer Summary crashes this app
Subject description: on Thinkpad Z61t with USB cardreader+SD
 

As the subject says, when clicking Summary under Computer in System Information obtained from Menu/System/Hardinfo hardware information, the Hardinfo application crashes immediately without any additional information. This thinkpad has 4G of RAM.

Update: This problem seems like is associated with restarting from a saved puppy session. I saved this with heavy encryption. Later, I deleted this and restarted fresh. The crash problem disappeared.

PostPosted: Sat 12 Apr 2008, 19:02    Post subject: Dotpets on Puppy 4 Beta 1  

Hello All:
Puppy 4 Beta 1 looks great, and works great, but I can't install dotpets (*.pet) that worked great on Puppy 2.16 thru 3.01 inclusive. Seems like I have dependency issues (library related??) on all these.

1) xpaint-2.7.0 : PETget Package manager message is:

........HOWEVER, these dependencies are missing:
File /usr/local/bin/xpaint has these missing library files:
libXaw95.so.7 .......

It creates the menu entry but can't run

2) Both qucs-0.0.13-i486 and qucs-0.0.14-i486

(I am the "packager" for QUCS on Puppy Linux, my "claim to fame")
I installed qt-3.3.8.pet first from repository ibiblio.org, OK.
PETget Package manager messages are:

........HOWEVER, these dependencies are missing:
File /usr/local/bin/qucs has these missing library files:
libqt-mt.so.3
File /usr/local/bin/qucsedit has these missing library files:
libqt-mt.so.3
File /usr/local/bin/qucshelp has these missing library files:
libqt-mt.so.3
File /usr/local/bin/qucstrans has these missing library files:
libqt-mt.so.3
File /usr/local/bin/qucsfilter has these missing library files:
libqt-mt.so.3
File /usr/local/bin/qucslib has these missing library files:
libqt-mt.so.3
File /usr/local/bin/qucsattenuator has these missing library files:
libqt-mt.so.3

So I tried creating a symlink (muggins suggested this in an earlier post) http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=22591
but got same results

3) openoffice_cutdown3-2.2.0.pet (from repository ibiblio.org)
Several (different) dependencies. It creates the menu entry but can't run.

4) fldigi-1.34-i486.pet also same results. Was available from
http://www.w1hkj.com/Fldigi.html

Any suggestions?? Otherwise Puppy 4 Beta 1 looks very promising.

Finally got around to trying Hotpup (saw a lot of talk about it, but didn't know what it was before now)

So, when I try to apply the settings, it says it failed to apply the new mode, and restores the old one.

Maybe this has been brought up here already, I didn't really look, but I will later... good idea with hotpup...

libqt-mt.so.3 is the multithread shared dll from QT3.

dingo has a partial qt4 install under /opt/qt4

I've been fighting qt3 vs qt4 a lot myself (it's a bigger mess than even M$ could make).

at one point i tried to symlink libqt-mt.so.3 to the main qt4 dll as it has mutlithreading built in by default but ended up with some weird errors.

a lot of qt apps still require 3 but I think that will change as I read somewhere that there was a licensing change between qt3 and qt4 of some type. not sure if it was accurate but it seemed to indicate that qt3 was no longer free and required a licensing fee of some type.

Sorry no fix for the problem, just wanted to shed some light for you.

your best bet is to try and get someone to compile those apps for qt4 (if they support it).

sorry, missed this part.

I don't think it's compiled with multithreading. If it is there, you need to export the QTDIR in a shell before running the apps.

like (with the proper path if this isn't it):

Code:
export QTDIR=/usr/lib


then run the app in that shell.

if you type the following prior and afterwards, you can see it change:

Code:
echo $QTDIR

Thanks, John Doe
I was suspecting qt3 vs qt4 issue.

Referring to QUCS, it uses qt3.1 up but <qt4 . The qt-3.3.8.pet installed fine, so I thought that supply the necessary libs?

Thanks for the suggestion in your second post ( export QTDIR=/usr/lib)
I haven't tried that yet.
1) I assume that means the source code will not need to be
recompiled, nor the package need be re-built.
2) Wonder if there was a way I could re-build the qucs package so
export would be included? (Simpler qucs install for Puppy 4 users?)

Referring to xpaint-2.7.0, openoffice_cutdown3-2.2.0.pet and fldigi, I don't think they use qt . Agreed, this qt3 vs qt4 thing is a mess, but I'd take open-source over M$ anyday.

Thanks for your help,
WN2A

PostPosted: Sun 13 Apr 2008, 00:04    Post subject: USB FAT16 install fails to boot  

Hi all, I posted a similar problem in the alpha forum....

I haven't been able to get clean USB flash FAT16 installs work properly since 3.01.

* 398 will install and boot ok from an USB Flash ext2 partition.
* if I install from 398 to FAT16 it will not boot.
* if I install from 301 to FAT16 and then upgrade to 398 I am able to boot ok.
* the number of files differs from the 301 install to the 398 install. ldlinux.sys doesn't get added in a 398 install.
I take it this is needed for the FAT16 boot?

Regards, Sooty2

A number of 'missingmod' and other files have turned up in /tmp of the FULL install. Safe to delete?

Subject description: instead of stars in restarting from a saved pup-session.
 

Idea When typing password for restarting from a saved and encrypted pup session, the typed password shows up on the screen as as-typed text (instead of stars). Somebody, watching the screen, could easily pick this up.

after a log 'puppy-free' time.
So excuse me, when I'm not up=to=date with all topics
I installed puppy 3.98 on a Thinkpad600.
Here are my problems/bugs:
1. even with mount-FULL, I'm not able to do a nfs mount
2. when running gxine, selecting 'open', the window I get is out of the screen left an top. So you can't select the path in the left window and you can't resize, move the window because the top bar of the window is not visible.

Hit your alt button on your keyboard and you should be able to drag the window. The newest JWM only resizes from the sides, corners and bottom.

Good Luck, Kal

This isn't really an issue for Barry, but I can't find a thread for Hotpup.
It would be really nice to be able to disable Hotpup's message asking if you want to unmount a device after you close the filer window.

I had mentioned my problems with wired DSL at this post before (I think it's on page 6). Now I have managed to solve the problem.

The problem is that the file /etc/resolv.conf is deleted when you execute pppoe-start and replaced by a symboli link to /etc/ppp/resolv.conf. And this is a symbolic link back to /etc/resolv.conf. Both links direct to each other. I have copied the file /etc/resolv.conf of my Puppy 2.14 and then I get an internet connection. But when you stop the internet connection with pppoe-stop and start it again with pppoe-start, the file /etc/resolv.conf is deleted again and replaced by the symbolic link again. So you have to copy the file resolv.conf everytime you execute pppoe-start.
