no problem my pleasure Smile if you haven't tried Xfburn give it a go, it would take less resources than Pburn and should run better/stabler on older computers you recycle Smile

It's strange:
I used to run a VIA Epia-M9000 Mainboard with Muppy 008-3 (based on Puppy 3). The internet connection worked with a rtl8187 wireless device using ndiswrapper. Encryptoin: WPA/TKIP
Then I tried Puppies 4.2 Deeper Thought v1. The Network wizard got me on the internet. Yesterday I downloaded v2. The wpa_supplicant changes between scanning and associating and fails connecting.
Starting the browser and entering the router I get the following message:
"The connection was refused when attempting to contact 192.168.2.1
Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection…"
At the same time my XP-notebook is online using the same access point via wireless.
Starting deeper thought v1 again – does not work any more (very strange)
Starting Muppy again – internet works.
[Muppy – usb-install / Deeper thought v1 and v2 Live-CD]
What's am I doing wrong?

Hi Thuuxxx

I`m running your v2 version on a full hard drive install and think it`s really great, I like the rc3 icons.
I have found however just like many other recent pups that when I configure Alsa sound it finds my via82.xxx chips and loads up. However as it displays what it is doing, a list of missing sound modules comes up as it swiches to the next input screen. Gxine still works but it does NOT remember the setting and I have to configure it again every time I switch on.
Also I have noticed that when I play some mp3s from on line I have to wait for buffer refills 4 seconds soundplay and 4 seconds off - it really is a pain. I am on dialup but I`m sure I could hear continuos sounds before using some other player in the far past -maybe at a lesser quality. I like to listen to net radio broadcasts or their saved talk shows for later playback. One of them is www.kevinsmithshow.com a talkshow on paranormal ufo`s etc. I get the buffer problem when clicking on Latest show, top of left menu.
Is ther another player that can handle this? I noticed something about Javascript.

Thanks for all your time and effort.

I'm not having any music or video problems with 4.2; but one
new thing I highly recommend for these type problems,
is GeexBox. Works very well on low end gear; worth trying
with dialup files? It's fun to play with too.

Sub_title: Desktop INSTALL Icon
 

ttuuxxx,

Can you post instructions on how to remove the shortcut arrow from the desktop's Install icon? This is only a small visual annoyance, but one which I would be willing to fix for myself with proper written guidance.

Again, thanks for all your hard work!

Right-click on that and choose File - Set Icon. Then navigate to /usr/share/midi-icons and drag your preferred icon to the Set Icon window. (This is the manual method. Smile )

Raffy he didn't want to set the icon, he wanted to remove the system link arrow from it, Thats a puppypin setting, or he can rightclick on the icon, click 'Edit Item' change the topline from
/usr/sbin/dotpup
to
/usr/sbin/petget
then click 'ok'

I tried that geexbox but when I pressed cd on the menu the screen went blank and I couldnt get out of it. I looked through the menu and coudlnt see how to get online for stream downloads at dialup speeds. Thanks anyway.
I still have problems with sound buffers on/off whilst downloading/listening to mp3 saved chat shows. Oh and v2 DOES remember the sound Setup I cant think why it didnt seem to play before.

Sorry...I want the best of both worlds...my "linux newbs" like it, I wont force it on anyone else Wink

P.S. This would make a great base for a puppy 4.2.1 if this were to happen, thank you for fixing the bugs

ttuuxxx - I found another bug.

The JWM configuration reports an error when I try to do something with the Tray Management (e.g. Number of Virtual Desktop).

==========

By the way, can you tell me how to remove the Ptray out from the original puppy? I used petbegone to remove it but it comes back on a remastered CD.

I tried starting Pwget and it didn't work. Could be a bad download but not likely. Perhaps someone else could check too. Cheers.
