Did a manual frugal install.... to an ext4 partition. Should have known better.
Tried again on a newly formatted small ext2 partition and all is well.

Code:
title  214X 11
  find --set-root --ignore-floppies --ignore-cd /214X/initrd.gz
  kernel /214X/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0  psubdir=214X PMEDIA=idehd PDEV1=hda2
  initrd /214X/initrd.gz

Couldn't get wifi to work straight off (WPA2 problems), but installed pns_tools (the CLI network tool that 01Micko adapted from Porteus) and that worked.
Downloaded the devx pet and converted it to an SFS. Loaded and working after a reboot.

10 year old Compaq nc6120 laptop.
2ghz Pentium M
2gb RAM
64gb SSD (mSATA) in an IDE adapter.
Intel i915 graphics.

Hi Keef could you try this modified Pwireless , Clarf posted some updates on the Pwireless thread that wasn't updated on here. So I modified the script with them.
This was the modifications I made. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=562784#562784

Also here 01Micko's pns_tool, I updated the missing .desktop icon. Could you try this one also and make sure it works, So I can added it to 2.14X

Thanks Smile

Rebooted with no savefile.
Pwireless still does not connect - I always thought it could not handle WPA/WPA2?

The new pns_tool pet works correctly.

I downloaded the latest JWM (from GiHub), just to see what happened. Found out you need to run
Code:
autoreconf -vfi
first (rather than automake), and also
"--disable-rsvg" in the configure options for it to compile. Some of the menu icons don't appear though.

I've only noticed a few minor things so far. Some icons are missing from the Control Panel (and on the other tabs too).

excellent you found something that needs fixing, I'm working on the missing images on the control panel. Smile
I don't really like the newer JWM, I hate that moving your mouse over and it switches screens thing, drives me nuts. Same with the drop down task-bar thing. I like a much simpler approach that takes less resources.

I have always generally liked JWM, particularly because of the low resources used for so much power. However, if an app such as Firefox is minimised in Openbox I like that you can drag and drop an html file from Filemanager onto the taskbar minimised Firefox icon and Firefox then pops up displaying that file.

I don't think JWM can do that, hence I tend to prefer Openbox. Or is there a newer JWM that can do that or a JWM configuration that results in that additional functionality?

Yes, I hate when a new desktop appears when moving over to screen edge, but I don't mind vanishing taskbar as long as that capability is configurable.

What I particularly like about JWM, however, is that it comes with taskbar and panels code built-in.

William

Seems to be a lot of scripted or manual configuartion required though I don't know much about how dynamically generated menus work, so I may well be completely wrong about JWM capabilities in that direction.

Good to hear it continues to be used and developed though.

With regards to numlock on my T42 there is still a problem I have disabled numlock in my bios. No other pup does this.

Pity someone could not make Pet out of this and maybe see if restarting
the desktop would enable it.

ttuuxxx...good to see you back.

I gave Slackoff a whirl last week...still a goodie.

http://smokey01.com/ttuuxxx/Slackoff/

I had to take quite a few pcs to the recyclers weeks ago
as I couldn't give them away....Shame ..shame moment.

It would be good to see if you do a hook up with John Biles
to produce a Super Puppy Legacy.

Ok, Back in the 2 series days Xorg wasn't the best at identifying keyboard layouts, They improved over time. So I downloaded the keyboard files from 4.31 and made a pet, lets see if this works Smile
Follow the steps in this order to see if it works
1st- go to /etc/X11 and delete any xorg.conf files that might be in that folder I had 3 of them.
xorg.conf
xorg.conf0
xorg.conf.NVIDIA
Next install the keyboard-4.31.pet
Then exit to X (Hold down CTRL+ALT and press Backspace)
then type xorgwizard at the prompt.
follow the regular monitor steps and then type xwin to start the window manager.
hope that works
