Yes I see it was 7 minutes from my request to your posting it. So I guess you are using one of those 512-core CPUs I've been reading about. Smile

Nice icon. Thanks. Hope it can go in 214X Final.

Been trying to get 214X-RC1 to behave on my Asus eee 901 (sound, resolution, wifi with wpa) and have had no success.

I read through the forum section about wifi (around page 151) and installed tempestuous's pet but still can't establish a wpa connection.
ttuuxxx's pet didnt work either. Eventually the save file filled up and I had to reboot.

Also would like to set up resolution for 1024x600. Modified xorg.conf Screen Section with
Code:
 Modes  1024x600
but this still doesn't seem to give me fits to the screen.

Anyone any experience of this setup?

Thanks
Dave

OK, if no one replies I'll assume the problem I described on the previous page was a bad burn or something. Good luck with 214X-Final.

Colonel Panic,
If you do a google for that error message you'll see that most folk who have had with other distros this have put it down to a bad burn or bad CD burner (same thing I guess.)

Not trying to tell you how to suck eggs but...

Did you check that the downloaded MD5 agreed with that on page 1 of this thread?

Have you tried another burner, reduced the burn speed, changed type of CD you use?

What about doing a manual install (assume you're using frugal) by opening the iso and extracting the individual files.

Just a few thoughts as this is the only post I've seen concerning this error with RC1.

Tell us what happens.

Cheers
Dave

Dave,

Thanks for replying and for the advice. I'll need to get to a machine with a CD rewriter (this one hasn't) before I can test some of your suggestions but a manual install, extracting the files from the CD (I don't have the ISO), sounds like a good idea.

Best,

CP .

Unfortunately, I have tried the Mode setting before as well (different Puppy) -- and failed to achieve a 1024x600 screen resolution -- so no positive experience here. But found a couple of threads that seem to go about it another way, if you want to try further:

Hope this is helpful.

davesurrey (et al),

You are most certainly welcomed (and I truly hope my input is helpful). However, I feel that I must point out that I do not know if this trail leads to an individual work-around or something to be hard-coded into a distribution (where everything "just works" out-of-the-box).

I see that a lot of work has been put into compiling and testing this Puppy, and imagine that folks are tired and/or over-stretched by daily demands for living.... Guess what I am trying to say is that I hope everything "just works" for everyone on this one, but can easily understand why some things might not (having monitored first-hand the amount of effort already expended). Laws of physics still apply, too; some things just aren't possible. Being a simple end-user who has not been involved in testing leaves me on the sidelines with no horse in the race -- only a sense of awe over the selfless dedication displayed by all of you!

-Roy

Hi Roy after the RC2 and Final is released, If there is still a need to update 2.14X, I'll make updated releases maybe every 6-8 weeks if need be. But I'm pretty positive that puppy 2.20 should be able to fully replace 2.14X within time.

Thanks, Ttuuxxx.

You've done a tremendous amount of work on this one (as well as everyone else on this thread) and I really appreciate all of it. As a matter of fact, I've got a buddy here with an older laptop that I want to put your 214X Final on after completion. But please notice that I am not prodding anybody for quickness -- or prodding anybody at all, really -- maturity possesses far greater value.

Now, if I could just teach myself to preview and edit my own posts before submitting them....

Hi guys this is something most of you have wanted, its a icon switcher for the desktop and menu icons, I had to do a lot of changes, some to the scripts, icons,xdg menus etc, I made up 2 versions, one that automatically changes without the "ok" click box and one with. you decide which you like better and I'll add it Smile
This contains 2 themes Blue Moon and Stardust.

Updated the icon switcher to a woof version so that now 24x24 icons aren't needed it will make the missing ones if they have the same name.
example
configuration48.png
configuration24.png
all that is needed is the configuration48.png icon and it will build the configuration24.png
Well that is the way Barry likes it, but I've noticed in the past you do lose some image quality doing this.
