PostPosted: Sun 23 Oct 2005, 20:36    Post subject:  Heralding the arrival of Pizzapup 1.0.5!  

(note: This is based on Puppy 1.0.5. For Pizzapup's based on 2.xx, check out the Pizzapup 3.x series!)

Puppy 1.0.5: Pizzapup Edition
Pizzapup 1.0.5 now available by bit torrent at http://linuxtracker.org/
md5sum

Barry provided the Puppy, I provided the Pizza. This is the result:

+Uses pup015 to keep cool with other pups
+Rox 2.3
+Nicer GTK theme
+IceWM
+Firefox 1.0.7
+Dillo
+Timidity
+Volume Icon
+Cool non-peach backdrop by RetroSushi from DeviantArt.com
+Several icon updates (especially the mut icon on the pinboard)
+Can you say "Alpha-transparant cursor?"
+HackyRemaster version 2
+Bootsplash/menu
+Perl
+Saveable Pupget
+Various bugfixes (Wizardwizard, patch, etc...)
+Removed Mozilla and JWM
+Burniso2cd roxapp
+Less
+ppmtolss16
+gif2lss
+Abiword dictionaries
+Wireless drivers (on the cd, not image.gz)
+IceWM themes (on the cd, not image.gz)
+About 71 megabytes

Basically, it's Puppy with a couple cosmetic changes, but a major selling point is that it includes wireless drivers in the cd. You have to mount the cd (easy with Rox 2.3, just enter /mnt/cdrom and it mounts for you Smile ), and they're in the directory "extra." There are also some more IceWM themes in there. The drivers are from the wifi-drivers-beta2.pup or some such thing. Thanks to the person who made it.

I also made Firefox completely self-contained within a roxapp. The only things out of it are the profile and a couple scripts that call it. I redirected Mozilla to Firefox to maintain compatablility. The html editor is now Beaver, as that was part of Mozilla too. The mini-browser (used for docs) was also part of Mozilla, so it's now Dillo, which I feel is much better anyways. That little guy is fast.

In the my-roxapps directory, you will find HackyRemaster. Be very careful with it, because it could wreck something if used wrongly. That's why it has the scary monkey head. If you right-click and choose "look inside" you can read the readme. DO NOT USE if you don't use the readme. I don't believe it is very self explanatory, and I don't want you running to me if you reformat your harddrive or something Rolling Eyes When I make the dotpup of them, I'll explain it more. That readme is about as good as I can do, though.

Uh... I think that's all that's important. It comes with Perl, so you can use Ndiswrapper on a Windows driver to get online. You can get the normal cursor from the dotpups menu in Ice. Oh, if you install that gtk-themes dotpup, it will overwrite the menu that has the current setup. So, be careful about that. If you want to put it back, you will have to edit the file to include XFCE CadmiumP.


If you have any problems, come and complain. I'll try my best to sort them out for you. Have fun Cool

Cool

I am almost worthy enough to be in your presence. (maybe in my dreams)

Meanwhile I am downloading and being bedazzled and put a quick link on the news wiki - that has an RSS feed so is worth updating.

To mark this momentuous occasion I have created the ro jah Pizza.

Ro Jah (sorry unsure of the spelling) is the most remarkable topping and is based on a Malaysian food which translates as "Inner food"

It is designed to overwhelm the senses (in effect it stimulates every sense sensation on the tongue) the brain closes down and a new taste sensation emerges. Few Westerns have heard of it and even some Malaysians are a little overwhelmed. It is a combination of Mango and a kind of shrimp paste and shrimp ash (yes truly)

. . . am I rambling? . . .

Well done is what I meant to say.

Yes bitorrent needed, I was down to 5kbs at one point
but guess where I am now writing from? (clue it is made with flour water and . . . . oh . . . it's a Pizza - you know it's a pizza)

Hooray Hooray [singing and jubilation]

Accepted the default boot up
and it went straight to a terminal prompt
not sure why - anyone else?)
Anyway xstart and xwin did not work

rebooted
. . . and then it booted up (asked for my settings) into a standard Puppy0015
into Pizzapup

Everything was familiar

The first help did not work (but Barrys did) - on the menu

+Volume Icon - on the menu bar - excellent - JWM does not have this and I am too lazy to set it up . . .
+Can you say "Alpha-transparant cursor?" - well it is certainly cool and I did not find it distracting

For Wireless users this is probably a better bet than the standard Puppy and they get the benefits of Perl, midi support and that Puppy reliable Icewm

More from me later. I think a lot of people will be very happy with what you have done. Wonder what Nathan is up to with grafpup?

How are others getting on?

Very Happy

Hey, I never claimed it was fast. Smile As for torrents, I haven't had time to even consider teaching myself how. I spent the weekend camping. When I got back, I took a shower, unpacked, and started making the final iso. Then my aunt called and said they needed help moving a bed, so there went another hour or two. Didn't help that my brother and sister decided to tag along and screw up the doors so they wouldn't close, then (after we figured it out) we stopped to get gas and couldn't get the gas cap off (turns out you ignore the directions on the cap itself that say turn 1/2 turn to remove and use it as normal). When I finally got settled I had to start my art homework, which I've been working on while it uploaded and I just "finished." Now I'm going to sleep.
Oh, and it was my grandma's car, so that's why I didn't already know about the gas cap. It gets tight near the end, and I assumed the directions were correct, so I didn't try forcing it because I was scared I'd break it. I'm not stupid, the dude who labeled it is.


Anyways, glad you like Pizzapup so far. This one was more for style than added functionality. One of the reasons I make Pizzapup is just because it helps me learn more about how Puppy works. With the first one, I learned how to remaster the hard way. This one taught me how to groom Puppy. The next one will probably be to add more functionality. I don't know when I'll do it though. I'll probably skip a version or two and just work on other stuff. I have a couple ideas I want to try out first.

Whoops! I just looked at the time! I need to hit the sack. Nighty night Smile

torrents are easy to make
with Azureus, you just click New Torrent, fill in the tracker address and point it to the iso ... that's about it

Dijjer is even easier, just use this address instead of this address
(you might prefer using this address)

each person downloading will also upload to other downloaders

the only thing is that each person has to have dijjer (and java) installed and running (dijjer is just one jar file ... type java -jar dijjer.jar to run it) ... also, you are not supposed to have to mess with ports to get dijjer to work

i think my last Icewm package does not have the Icewm Help menu item disabled in preferences ... my "Service Pack 105" disables it ... it puts ShowHelp=0 in the Icewm preferences file

(i don't know if SP105 is compatible with Pizzapup or not)

torrents are very easy to make ... ctorrent can make torrent files (60k, doesn't need Java), but i have never tried a ctorrent torrent on a real tracker, so i don't know if it actually works or not

I'm posting this right now with Pizzapup using Firefox. I like this a lot. It really made booting up Puppy FUN again! Really nice looks all around. Wireless drivers are a great touch, too. Cool cursor. Anyway, lots to like here.

Thanks,
Nathan
