Yes Sage, but the other thing is that Gxine has by far the best user interface. That Xine-ui is truly awful, and no matter what I do, I can't get it to permanently show the controls. But if Gxine won't work I'd go for Mplayer any day, because it does work. Apart from the lack of DVD navigation, does anybody ever have any problems with it?

Hope this helps

I'd vote for Mplayer over Gxine.

Curious behavior of the (static) network settings. Having unplugged the RJ45 during an abortive attempt to install an absolute dog of a distro (DreamLinux), discovered that the IP addresses of the NIC and gateway were lost from a full install when restarting P4beta1, but not the DNS addresses. No big deal just strange.

Hi, I am 3.01 user, very satisfied, would like to test 4 beta but the download for me (ADSL) is about 2kb/sec about 10 hours to complete and with this rate it is always corrupted or stopped during download. Any idea?

My experience is not so extreme, but something is wrong over at ibiblio. A normal Puppy download normally takes 5 minutes or so (on an 8 Mb ADSL line) but Dingo 4 beta took around 45 minutes.

Are you being throttled Barry?

@eprv : have you tried *wget from Menu => Internet ? You'll need to give it the full URL. The advantage is that it can be stopped and re-started, and it will re-start where it left off.

Subject description: Saved setup now restarts wireless network in the next boot

Feeling a little bit of self-gloat after finding out solution to the bug I reported earlier: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=188372#188372. The problem was that the saved wireless profile was not being reused, and had to setup wireless network from scratch after every reboot. The bug is in the file /usr/sbin/wpa_connect.sh. From console, type:

geany /usr/sbin/wpa_connect.sh

Change from /usr/bin to /usr/sbin on lines 21 and 31 as shown below. Save this file. This should utilize the /etc/wpa_supplicant2.conf and /etc/wlan0wireless created during network setup assuming that the setup has been properly saved. This took care of automatic wireless connection in my case.

Sorry but this didn't work for me.

There seem to be several aspects to this bug, for me at any rate.

1) My saved profile is never loaded.

2) When running the wizard it demonstrates some rather odd behaviour. Initially the 'Wifi active light" flashes, then stays on. At that moment the blinky icon appears in the system tray. You might think that the job was done at that point, but no.

3) There's then a long delay (well, perhaps a minute) during which the light alternates between blinking and steady. It's like something is looping.

4) Eventually the light stays on but the wizard reports that it is "Unable to establish a WPA connection". But next the wizard tests eth1 and reports "Puppy found a live network".

5) The wizard returns to the first screen, says now it's time to get an IP address, which it does fine.

6) The last action is asking whether I want to save the config for the next boot. So I always say "Yes".

Steps 3 and 4 are the strange ones, so if that helps anyone trouble-shoot, then great!

I made some progress on this. ideflash frugal installations can now run in PUPMODE 13. See the thread below:

Nick: What type of wireless card do you have? Also, have you tried or been able to make the wireless connection using manual setup? My wireless card was detected automatically, and wlan0 interface was created. I hit wlan0 in puppy network wizard, and created a profile using essid, key, etc., checking the applicable options. Next, I saved and used the profile. Test wlan0 passed fine. Auto DHCP got the address and made the connection. Upon successful connection, both the top part and the bottom part of blinky blinks.

In the blinky, when the top part blinks it is sending data out; when the bottom part blinks it is receiving data back upon successful connection with IP address allocated. Have you seen the bottom part of blinky flash? Also, what type of encryption (none, wep, wpa, wpa2) are you using for communication with wireless router?

I think this may be a bug. I went through Menu/Desktop/JWM Configuration/Taskbar/Tray Height Option (in gtkdialog)/SHORT and found the Error message:

Quote:
New config corrupt. Keeping original


Same error for Tray Placement Option, Tray Autohide Option, Virtual Desktops, and Program Insertion into Tray.

I updated the Trash roxapp to fix the bugs introduced when Barry put it in Dingo, and add other features/bugfixes.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=188784#188784
There is a lot of other code changed, and I might have missed something so please report any bugs.
I've also made some suggestions for how somebody with a little knowledge and time can improve it. Some of these would be very quick, so hopefully someone will take it up and we'll see another version soon Smile

Barry - you should be able to drop it straight in Dingo now.
