G_Pup is a Barebones (fat free), SMP enabled, Puppy 4.1.2. Thanks to MU for the SMP kernel, and Pizzasgood for the SM crash fix, multiple monitor fix and petget path fix. Very Happy

Note: For the lock icon to work install, xlockmore-5.20.1patched.pet
For wallpaper setter to work install, gpicview-0.1.9.pet

g_pup-1.2.iso
md5sum
Kernel_src to compile modules is here.
For devx use puppy 4.1.2 devx.

OK I am running low on HD space so this may explain my difficulties.

Booted up OK and I then tried to install the nvidia drivers
after rebooting I was unable to use xorg and had to revert to xvesa.

Defeated the purpose for me as I wanted to set up SecondLife

Be interested how others get on and if they notice any speed increase on multi processors?
Thanks wolf-pup, sorry was unable to devote more time to testing dues to system deficiencies . . . Embarassed

the Nvidia drivers might have to be recompiled for the new Kernel.
What driver did you use?

lobster, i haven't tried this one yet but have also just remastered a puppy with smp-kernel.

my first impressions:
- everything seems to run a little more 'fluently' but as i use an actual laptop (sure multicore) i didn't really have speed-deficits with puppy ...
- using dir2sfs is much faster

i will test with some encoding and report back.

cheers

Subject description: A little of everything but mostly want to know more about G Pup
 

Does G Pup have a GUI? I have not been able to get any Puppy's to run on my computer. It is a Dell PowerEdge 2300. It was used as a server and has 6 hard drives. I can run Slackware on it fine. I have Wolvix running on it right now and I really like it but I have all these Puppy CD's (probably more than 40 because I'm either nuts or addicted) lying around and it just bugs me that I can't get any of the versions to work.

What are the applications included, if any?

Thanks.

Hi Lobster:

Did you ever get Nvidia working with G_Pup 1.1. I haven't had any luck with either the latest pet or building with the download from Nvidia's site. If you did get it working could you give a hint as to how you got it working? The pet installs without any problem and the driver downloaded from nvidia's website builds successfully but both approaches leave me unable to start X. See my note to Wolf Pup below to see what I have tried so far.

Hi Wolf Pup:

When I build the nvidia driver using the file downloaded from nvidia's site it appears to complete successfully, however when I:

Code:

#modprobe nvidia

FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.25.16/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko): Invalid module format

#


Googling and referring to nvidia user forums, seems to indicate two possible causes.

One is that the gcc used to build the kernel is different from the one used to build the driver. I am using the devx_412.sfs which appears to have gcc 4.2.2. Is this the same gcc used to build the kernel?

A second possible cause is that the kernel sources used during the build are incorrect. I am using the
kernel-src-2.6.25.15-patched-puppy4.1.sfs as my kernel source. Would you know if this is correct? If it is not correct, do you know where I can get the correct sources?

Any help or direction would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

The problem is in the file "/usr/local/apps/Wallpaper/AppRun". Since none of the image viewers it looks for are present, the "View" menu ends up with no menuitems. Gtkdialog3 doesn't like this and aborts.

Fix: sorry, haven't made a "fixed" version of "/usr/local/apps/Wallpaper/AppRun".

Very crude work around: Install one of the viewers it is looking for, namely "gpicview". Use the wallpaper setter. Then uninstall "gpicview".

In menu, "Desktop->JWM configuration->Application launch buttons in tray", does not work.
The problem is in file "/usr/local/jwmconfig2/panel-buttons". It uses the program "bc", which is not present.

Very crude work around: Install "bc". Use "Application launch buttons in tray". Uninstall "bc".
