Mark is gone?!!!!
ohno!
He helped me so much, and so many others.
Thank you Mark for all you have done.

Here's the link to the various sizes of NewYearsPuppy. I actually had a hard time finding it again through Google and well minded search, because there are so many other peripheral references to it.

http://puppyisos.org/isos/2009-01-to-06/Newyearspup02/

Note, the versions are called Micro, Mini, Midi, and Macro. Each one has more apps than the last.

The micro and mini versions don't have the ATI driver on-board but all the necessary stuff is there for adding it from the ati-catalyst-9-3K2.6.28.5.pet that MU also put together.

ati-catalyst-9-3K2.6.28.5.pet

The midi and macro versions already have the ATI driver in place.

(Note, when adding the drivers to micro or mini versions DON'T use the later kernel pet -- ati-catalyst-9.3-K2.6.29.6-puppy4.3beta1.pet -- that one won't work with NewYearsPuppy)

Just an update. The Mplayers I tried all worked after all, I needed to change the video settings to x11/shm, direct rendering, double buffering. (They also worked with GL2 but the playback was choppy) They didn't work with xv, as originally configured.

Also gtkam, gphoto2 ffom a thread posted by Aragon for 4.3.1 were located and installed and they worked, even though not previously tested against 4.1.1 (NewYearsPuppy).

So now, I seem to have everything I generally used in 4.3.2 v3 test, and can switch over to NewYearsPuppy as my main distro, with full graphics acceleration on the Thinkpad T43. Great! Thank you Mark.

Everything has been working great with Newyearspup, on the Thinkpad T43 including Google Sketchup, CADs and other graphics intensive programs that accelerated hardware render on this laptop, until an automatic upgrade to Seamonkey 2.4 caused that program to stop working. Earlier versions worked fine.

When I try to run Seamonkey from terminal I now get:



Code:
# ./seamonkey

./seamonkey-bin: /usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1: version `GCC_4.2.0' not found (required by /initrd/mnt/dev_save/Seamonkey/seamonkey/libxul.so)


As you can see above, the Seamonkey directory is located in /mnt/home and is shared by other puplets. It does work from 4.3.2 test

Any help solving this would be appreciated.

Seamonkey problem solved.

Nothing to do with Newyearspup.

Turns out that Adobe Acrobat had substituted its own links for the existing puppy libgcc ones in /usr/lib. This has been a problem for me in other puplets as well. I don't understand why, or when, it does this.

Anyway, the solution was to replace libgcc links with correct ones again. Seamonkey then started as usual.

Opening another thread for the Adobe Acrobat issue elsewhere.
