Used the Puppy Package Manager to install the dotpuphandler, but I cannot get either:
--------------------------------------------
Captura.pup
Or...
smm1.0.pup
--------------------------------------------
To complete installation.

How about an improved version of smm where you can actually click on URL's within the text of emails and be taken to the webpage using the default web-browser? [Like Mailwasher does]

Captura needs perfecting also [or replaced with a perfected alternative].

p.s. How come 4.3beta2 suddenly had the name 4.2.4?
That had me confused for a time.
Didn't know which iso to download.

Subject description: Some problem with puppy
 

Hi Barry a few things to report

1.Sorry but as someone with bad eyesight I find these icons would be impossible for me to use on a daily basis (I liked the look of the last desktop complete with superpup!)

2. There are no links to Gxine for Flac or MP4

3. BBCi player requires flash 9.0.115 or greater.

4. On reboot to Sidux I get a failed code 4 from fsck saying super block last mount date set in future which for me means a 25 minute wait while my 1tb drive gets checked!

Any chance of kernel with SMP and other speeding up type stuff?
Sidux boot speed = 36s
Puppy = 34s
Tinycore 13s

Thanks as always for hard work
Tony

I would love to have the 2.6.25.16 kernel available now for my Asus EEE 900.

Tempestuous' fine eee drivers obviously won't work with the kernel in beta2--and even when I installed puppy-4.3beta1-k2.6.25.16-v423-SCSI.iso and used the delta update and my beta1 pupsave file, no joy with the wifi and acpi drivers.

Can't really offer any other test results, since some of my hardware now doesn't work (until those more learned than me can develop beta2 with the 2.6.25.16 kernel).

Subject description: Grub Loading stage1.5 Grub loading, please wait.....Error 2
 

Hi,
on PIII600MHz 192MB Ram440MX frugall install with PUI on ext3 sda1; swap on sda2;
Boots and runs nice on live-cd !
I performed a frugall install on ext3 sda1; afterwards configured Grub (just copied the newgrubtext to menu.lst .... as I did much times before); I restarted with live-cd removed and got this message at boot-up:
Code:
Grub Loading stage1.5
Grub loading, please wait.....
Error 2

at boot up.
I already did frugal install with puppy412 and 413 without any problem...
It looks trivial but do not find why?
Thanks for any advice
Charlie

just install the wallpaper.pet on page 1 this thread, restart PC and go to Menu/Desktop/Nathan Wallpaper to select another background; and aftrwds under
Menu/Desktop/JWM configuration -->JWM theme you'll find something to suit you.
Cheers

@jakfish
I have the same model. Since woof (meaning uPup, sPup, Puppy4.3beta1 with newer kernel and now Puppy424 beta2) wifi with WPA/TKIP works out of the box for me.

Subject description: Icons
 

Hi charlie6 thanks for tip.

Perhaps Barry it might be better to start with a setup of resonable contrast and then let people choose fancy ones?

Am hoping to put Puppy on my little acer aspire one (Lovely machine already works with puppy very nicely)
Cheers

PostPosted: Sun 06 Sep 2009, 15:25    Post subject: Beta 2 is excellent  

Follow-up: I'm getting used to the Silver Marble icon theme. I may not choose to use it but I am beginning to like it.

Follow-up: The ALSA wizard problem described below is seen on *all three* of my machines - a circa 2004 P4 laptop, a circa 1999 desktop employing on-board audio and a circa 2004 desktop employing a PCI sound card. I can't be the only one encountering this problem!

4.3 beta2 (424) looks very "professional" indeed. It will go far in conveying Puppy as serious user's OS.

The Silver Marble icon set is attractive but rather nondescript and difficult to see/decipher. My preference would be to go with a Smooth Color set with reduced (<30-50%) color saturation. It would add a little life and some (but not too much) color to the desktop.

Viewnior is terrific - one of few that can replace my fav, Gpicview. I vote that Viewnior be the default viewer.

Code browser looks like a great alternative to Geany. I especially like the "code folding" feature, which would provide Puppy users with a convenient and generic outlining tool - a big plus!

The new kernel is FAST!

ALSA Wizard still does not detect any sound card hardware (as experienced in 423, 423 and 421), despite the sound card being detected and configured during boot. If anyone else is experiencing this, speak now or forever hold your peace.

It's early days, but 424 looks excellent!

Subject description: Download is much too sloooooooooow, so not tried it yet
 

I'll try this when the download takes less than the promised 2 hours. Crying or Very sad

I'm supposed to have an 8Mb download speed which can do 100 Mb in a few minutes, so I'm not sure what's wrong.

Caneri; are you planning to host this?

Hi Nic2109, I had problems with the download of the ISo. It failed twice. What solved it was to pause and restart it (I was using firefox)a number of times and it then down loaded fine although at about 30k average speed.

Downloaded pup424.scsi
Checksums matched
From both a frugal install and a burnt cd, it seems to get stuck at
Loading Drivers needed to access disk drives.

So I have as of yet to see the distro.

Anyone else get the pup424scsi to boot?
Edited post
Boots fine on 900mhx dell with 384 megs ram ata hard drives.
But...
Will get past the above message on my pc with SATA drives.
The old version did.
So what got left out?

ISO download went smoothly as did the Frugal load. I am OK with the silvery-gray but not real fond of the graphic - looks too clownish to me.

4.31Beta2 came right up and recognized the internal nic (Am waiting for a wifi nic in the mail, it uses the Atheros chipset b/g/n - ENGENIUS EMP-8602+S).

This site http://media.myfoxtampabay.com/myfoxhurricane displays well under Seamonkey 2.0Beta but not under 1.1.15 or this 1.1.17 version:

I believe that it, and many others, requires Flash 10, and maybe other plug-ins.

Any recommendations, please?

Meanwhile I will beat on this some more to see what I can break ... it's a gift! Rolling Eyes

Hi

Got the same problem as jakfish - can't get wifi to go in beta2.

Tried loading what I thought were the correct modules - but no go.

With k2.6.25.16 puppy's, I used tempestuous's (rtl8187se-coffelius0.4-k2.6.25.16.pet). and all worked with my
EeePC 701SD with the earlier celeron M 900MHz processor.

Strangely - all puppy's with later kernels than k2.6.25.16 - would not work with wifi on this machine.

Sadly - even with this latest kernel (which BTW is much faster than anything before) I have the same difficulty.

Mutter / mumble - don't know what to do - is there a something that
needs to be enabled OR is it me being dim. (probably the latter)

Any help and guidance will be gratefully received.

Very best regards - Ray

The latest 2.6.31 (RC9) kernel is even faster...much faster:

- Benchmarks on memory tight desktops show performance improvements of up to 50%
- Firefox and Chrome benchmarked show about 20-25% speed improvement
- X desktop responsiveness is doubled under high memory pressure
- Kernel mode setting for ATI videocards brings faster startup and shutdown of the X Server and faster user switching

I'd love to see an experimental build (4.3 Beta3) with this kernel.

Best choice of Kernel : much faster ... next one even faster.

Nice looking icons.

Do you still need /dev/hdxy ?

Can you associate .mp4 and .mkv files to gxine ?
