How difficult would it be to alter the dhcpcd routine used by the 214 series?

When I have been using a combination of any 214 release and dhcp to connect to my internet router I have connection problems that are the same as problems referred to by BarryK in his recent blog comment that mentions dhcpcd problems having crept back into Wary due to an oversight.

 http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02352

In that case the problem is resolved by simply loading a .pet that I guess changes to a new dhcpcd file. (The fix works perfectly on the Cielo Wary5 install I was testing so it made me wonder if the same thing would work on my 214 installs)

Do you think I can try that same .pet on 214? Or does anyone know of a similar pet for 214?

There seem to be many issues with dhcpcd code in older puppies, and it prevents correct, reliable allocation of dhcp lease from the router and causes unreliable or nonexistent connection to the internet.

I reported my specific symptoms on p302 . Basically the incorrect dhcpcd code causes my router to go into a state of confusion, and the router itself stops issuing dhcp leases to any device (and can't be used until the router is power cycled, with the 214 install taken offline or put in static IP mode). Yes, I could blame the router - BUT - this fault goes away when Barrys .pet is loaded on a Wary install, and the behaviour doesn't occur when using Puppy 4.3.1, so I am extremely hopeful that someone might be able to suggest a recent and compatible dhcpcd pet that can be grafted back into 214.

Thanks in advance.

All in this very long thread.
Excerpts here:

I've been away for a while, but I'm back now and will have an update for the 214 website asap.

Sorry for neglecting you guys.

Sub_title: GTK+ for Thunderbird
 

I use Thunderbird for my email on my Linux Mint machine so naturally I installed it on my laptop but it's missing GTK+. The installation report only lists GTK+. I've searched all over the place with no luck. Where do I find this?

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A55 w/o an internal hard drive. I'm booting with the live CD and am using a USB thumb drive to save. I started out running Lucid but all browsers kept disappearing so I went "backwards" if you will hoping to get a system with a browser that would allow me to view web pages that didn't look like I was using a "mobile" device. This version (Classic Pup 2.14X) is a lifesaver!! Much thanks!!

Thunderbird doesn't have to be installed, not even in 214x, provided it is a frugal install (normally recommended).

Get the tar.gz from the Mozilla site
http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/all.html
and unpack it to the root of your USB flash drive. Now drag the executable /mnt/home/thunderbird/thunderbird to your desktop and you are in business.
Icons are in /mnt/home/thunderbird/chrome/icons/default

Thanks, Wuwei. I haven't installed the OS to anything. I'm just using a save file since my laptop BIOS has no USB boot capability. I decided to use the Webmail Notifier add-on instead.

Out of curiosity, would it be possible to install to a USB stick and make a boot floppy with a CD? I'm still learning all this stuff.

d'accordo for the first part.

The second paragraph is not quite clear to me. What is it you want to do?

1. Create a boot floppy when running the LiveCD?
I am not in 214x right now, but if I recall correctly there is a Menu item "Wake Pup". That should create a boot floppy for you.

2. You want to boot Puppy from a CD?
That is one of the original ways of booting Puppy. Burn the ISO with Burniso2cd (in Puppy) or ImgBurn (in Win) and then use this CD to boot your Computer and Puppy.

Now the issue of "install to a USB stick":
You don't have to "install" in this case. Just run Puppy from CD and when you shutdown or reboot Puppy will prompt you to create a savefile. Do this by saving it to your USB stick.
From then on you can always boot your Puppy with the CD and the stick inserted. The OS is on the CD, your settings, changes, chronics, drivers and programs are in the savefile.

Nevermind. I'm doing all right as is. Nothing broken, nothing to fix. Thanks for your help!

In 214XRC5 I just made /etc/init.d/hiawatha.run non-executable (right-click - properties - un-tick the three exec-boxes).
I see that in 214X-top9 (not running it at the moment, so cannot verify) there are more files involved
Code:
# ls -go /etc/init.d/*atha*
lrwxrwxrwx 1   27 2011-10-10 23:03 hiawatha.run -> ../rc.d/init.d/hiawatha.run
-rwxrwxrwx 1 1713 2010-08-22 16:45 rc.hiawatha
#
I'd suggest to first try if making /etc/rc.d/init.d/hiawatha.run non-executable is enough. If not, I'd continue with making /etc/init.d/rc.hiawatha non-executable. And if hiawatha would still be auto-started, I'd simply delete all three files (provided I'd have no intention of running hiawatha later on).

Hope that helps Smile/MHHP
