Hi Playdayz

I am using a different PC recently as my main PC fried its mobo
I used to have a P3/667 with 4 SCSI drives, and had a v5 VMWare client installation with VMtools on a win2K setup

Now I have a dual P4 2.6gb rig running XP [groan, but it's better than that vista that was on it], I haven't recovered loads of stuff from that box & I still have VMTools on CD but it bitches and says it can only be installed in a virtual machine, so the question is:
Is there a way to use this - I can probably recover my v5 VMWare client setup, but it means adding an adaptec/scsi card to this box....
It's in the pipeline, as I intend testing big_bass's slaxer with SMP to see if it will scsi boot - a long standing Puppy problem
- [ttuuxxx, take note!! - scsi booting & SMP capability would be brilliant
- though the kernel may need to have it 'turned on' in a recompile]

Having the ability to transfer files between a virtual puppy and my main OS would be 'most excellent, dude' Wink
I have a Lacie 300gb network drive, but despite my best efforts I couldn't get samba to see it - I normally have it shared between several PCs on my network - that could do the job, but I'd prefer not to use it in USB mode....all my usb drives are full up.....more kit needed Laughing
Any other suggestions re vmtools?

Perhaps you should have a separate thread for this - sorry ttuuxxx

Cool, thanks ttuuxxx

Playdayz - don't worry about vmtools
I retrieved my copy of VMWare Workstation v5 and installed it, having un-installed the player, as it wouldn't let me unless I did....
However, it then reported that my VMWorkstation version was too old as the vmx was newer & I needed to update to a later version, so I'm back with the player - irony is, now my firewall won't let the virtual puppy on the net.... Laughing

hey ho, something needs resetting, but I'll sort that

All that just to try to copy/move files one to the other....darn

PS Strange thing is, both dillo & firefox just gave a blank screen - no indication of any progress screen/waiting for, or anything
Oh, and when I did turn the [windoze] firewall off.....
.... Firefox auto-updated to 3.5.1 ...cool....& there's private browsing in the menu under tools... Laughing
Must go, got an ebay bid running

ttuuxxx

a quick 'loan' from Joe's slaxer thread

Quote:

I wrote a "quick" info get script to help solve problems

Paul (pakt) added to it a another step he added more logs
and had it all placed in one folder


this script is now called info_get_v02.tar.gz
attached


1. download it

2. unzip it

3 click on this script----> info_get_v02

4 this compressed file gets auto built for you info_tarball.tar.gz

5 attach it to your forum post

more people can find what went wrong
fixing problems faster Very Happy


*this will work for any version of puppy*


files that get saved are:

bootkernel.log
cpuinfo.txt
ddcprobe.txt
dmesg.txt
dmidecode.txt
elspci-l.txt
lsmod.txt
meminfo.txt
xerrs.log
Xorg.0.log


download here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=20306

I recommended it's own thread in beginners, and sticky status

Subject description: dmidecode
 

dmidecode doesn't seem to exist in pre - 4 pups. I downloaded the pet for it (from pet_packages_4), and it works ok on 3.01.
Script now works, although it complains about not finding Xorg.0.log

Well guys I managed to get the first coat of paint on the walls, lol I was painting up until 1hr before the guest for the wife's 40th birthday party, lol I'll finish it next week sometime, but until then back to 2.14X Smile Oh ya, when it comes to wedding rings, I dislike tight rings on my fingers, I get kind of nervous when things are tight on my fingers, So I alway have rings about 1 size bigger than my finger.
I lost my first wedding ring I was swimming at bondi-beach a few years back and it slipped off and away it went into the Ocean, My 2nd wedding ring well I was scrubbing the paint off my hands yesterday in the shower and guess what, down the drain it went, I ripped apart the drain to find it and it was gone, lol Lets just say my wife wasn't happy again, lol
Oh well 3 times the charmer.

I was going to compile handbrake and it looks like it needs Jam, lol so this is what it said for the missing deps, LOL

You're supposed to be building with make, not jam.
If you were going to use jam--which you shouldn't--you'd run:
'./jam' on a Mac, or
'jam' on Linux or Windows

To make jam, boil fruit with sugar and an acid until pectins are released.

/bin/sh: jam: command not found

Thanks gposil that saved me some time, I was looking for a small dvd converter and well a 12MB pet just is too large, I was looking more for the area of 1MB or less for 2.14X.

no it doesn't have ffmpg, but not for long Smile
i"m really undecided which media player to go with gxine needs updating in 2.14X so either gxine of mplayer, What I'm trying to do is figure out which would give the most for size.

V7 Released Page one for download and details Smile
Hope this one is better than V6 Smile And if it isn't we'll have to work on it, lol I put way too much in this one to revert back to V4, This one is based on V5.

Ahh, first ever version of Puppy not to recognise my wireless card.

Its under Ralink as rt61 but no network is recognised or able to load a driver.

Pretty pointless an option to download other wireless drivers when I can't get online anyway Sad

Only check so far, as I prefer to get a connection first on any Puppy.
