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


Just a quick update; I couldn't even copy the files (at least, not all of them) off the CD. So a bad burn is what it looks like.

Thanks for replying anyway, but I think I'll wait for 2.14X-Final.

Cheers,

Colonel Panic.

Thanks for the icon switcher gift ttuuxxx, It should be added to the Control Panel list. I was thinking in the miscellaneous tab.

I found the icon change is not immediately applied (I suppose the change will be possible only after icons in /usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps are replaced), so the one with the additional OK button could be the best option, because changes for the user seems to be executed after OK is pressed.

more icon themes located at http://puppylin.freehostia.com/icons.htm


ttuuxxx, I like Stardust theme please don´t remove it (I´m a old man with a classic taste Rolling Eyes ). I think WhoDo´s theme is better suited for XOpup project default theme, looks good in small resolutions and is based in comic icons (hand drawed), anyway it´s a really good addition to 214X...

thank you,

Not bad at all Smile , but I´ll prefer folder icons from UGnome theme, also draw, Pmount and petget icons look something poor (for a color oriented theme). I like Puppy-Oxygen colors... Although Home, PetGet and Pmount icons are not the best ones.

Love the icon switcher. Nice addition.

Like clarf I don't think HaikuPup would be a positive move for 214X. Not that I think much of Stardust either especially the famous fuzzy house for Home. I just think Blue Moon is really good. But others I personally would vote for are erectus, JQ8 and Puppy-Oxygen.

Also FWIW I prefer the no-ok version of the icon switcher.

For the first time ever Firefox won't run. Running from the terminal I get

Quote:
/lib/firefox/run-mozilla.sh: line 131: 6327 Bus error "$prog" ${1+"$@"}


I think this happened after I let it update yesterday. Won't do that again.

Anyone know how I can overcome this update and get FF back without having to do a re-install.

Thanks
Dave

I don't have a solution to your problem but ........ my Firefox updated to 3.5.6 and is working normally on 2.14. Hopefully someone else can give you a solution.

Reading through the rox manual I discovered AVFS which lets you browse archives as folders (including tar.gz, tar.bz2, rar, zip...) It is rather small and quick for what it does & arguably simpler (maybe too simple?) than xarchive, xarchiver and file roller.

There is a pet here
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=24169

(It is compiled for the puppy 4.X, but should work for 2.X as well - for more info on AVFS read the Rox help file)

Sure dave its simple
delete /root/.mozilla
place your cd into the drive
open the cd and drag /mnt/dvd/pup_214X.sfs to /root/SfS-converter/3-4-Series it will make a /root/squashfs-root folder
delete /lib/firefox and replace it with the /root/squashfs-root/lib/firefox folder and your done Smile

Thanks ttuuxxx.
It worked fine...except that when I dragged the pup214x.sfs file from the CD to /root/SfS-converter/3-4-Series it refused to copy. This was with 214X-RC1.

So then I went to a 214X16 install it worked straight away so I used the files from there.

I note that there is a SFS-converter pet which I have applied previously to 214X RC1 but not to 214X16. Could this be the reason? What is the pet for?

Cheers
Dave
