Botanic,
Puppy 4 (dingo) is still in test phase. Now very soon at beta 2.
Beta 1 was at 398 so very close to 400 Wink

I use Dingo from alpha 1 on and I take for granted that sometimes I have problems.

So altho beta 1 works pretty well it can't be considered yet as a stable release.

mclien,

I have installed xine ui from the pupget repositories because I fine gxine very inadequate indeed. I have also installed mplayer and its codecs.

Concerning NFS, Puppy no longer supports NFS. I moved to smb (now CIFS) which works just as well, if not slightly faster. This does mean that your file server needs to export using smb or cifs. Hairywill's pnetmount will find the smb shares from the server, or if you want to mount them at every boot, add smbmount command to your startup script in /root/startup. It is better to add the command in this script rather than in rc.local because the network connect is now backgrounded during the boot, so may not be available when rc.local is executed.

Here's a copy of my smbmount command as an example,

smbmount //Office/MyMusic /home/hilary/MyMusic -o guest

where
Office = the name of the server
MyMusic = the name of the mount on the server - be careful this is not the name of the folder.
/home/hilary/MyMusic is the name of the folder on the Puppy machine which will take the mount.
-o guest = option as user guest.

I am using Ubuntu on the server.

right then. i got confused by the latest release notes:
Quote:
Finally it has happened! The last 'official' release of Puppy was version 3.01, released October 15, 2007. Version 4.00 is happening 6 months later, which is an incredibly long time considering the previous frenetic schedule of releases. Anyway, here it is: the live-CD file is 'puppy-4.00-seamonkey.iso' and is just 83.3MB. Download from http://puppylinux.com/download/.

... written in advance? Smile

@botanic
Good remark. Where did you get that info?
I had the first alpha downloaded at 15.01.2008, which, indeed, isn't 6 month from 15.10.07. Wink
