fm1st during the remaster when it tells you that it has made /tmp/root and ask if you want to edit anything. Go over to /tmp in rox and delete the root folder in there. Leave that rox open and open another rox then COPY your root folder into /tmp and continue with the remaster.

lwill for me when i tried the .pet it reset everything and I had to start over.I suggest changing the .pet into a .tgz using pet2tgz and then copy the new scripts over the old ones.But I didnt change the gtk2 stuff. That is what i did and everything worked fine.

Hmm, see the pup-430.sfs is used in a 431.1 version.
Australian or Canadian logic? Wink

My experience:
Using the Lin'N'Win method.
First boot pfix=ram.
Could configure the network and go on the net.
Was presented to create a save file.
At next boot, no network devices any more.
After a while I realized that I might had to put the zpxxxxx.sfs file in the same place as the pup-430.sfs.
Did so and could configure the network devices again.

Is this zpxxxx.sfs a new concept?

naaa its a older and better concept, after you do a install you can delete it, puppy 2.14 had zdrv_214 included which is basically the same.

I downloaded puppy from the link on the first page a few weeks ago and Firefox was built in. I then gave the CD to a friend.

The other day I downloaded Puppy 431 from a link on Barry's site and there was no FF - just Seamonkey. Are there two different 431's?

Where can I download the one with FF?

Thanks,

Don

I believe the old one that I downloaded had a 430sfs in it

Page 1 of this thread has the links to the 2 firefox versions.
One with the older Xorg, and one with 4 series default xorg.

Thanks ttuuxxx. I take it this is basically a puplet based on the official release.

Good work and thanks for your help,

Don

I think, buried in the post at the end is a bit about Dial up. But I can't be sure due to the breathless nature of the post. Maybe they want a classic dial-up acoustic coupler? Or maybe they just want to go TA DA!!! And leave it at that.

Subject description: after "print"-cmd the only possibility is "print to file"
 

@ttuuxxx:
Hello! had some trouble of getting my CanonS300 (connected to Fritzbox-USB interface) to work, but after installing CUPS1.3.11-pet from Patriot, all things went well but my Firefox ( firefox-3.6b1-i686.pet): he showed up only
"print to file", when asked to print.
After several effortless trials with "about:config" and some discussions on the german Firefox-forum, I deinstalled and fetched the german version of FF3.5.5tar.bz2 and installed.
Did it like that:http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=766380530&t=46390
First thing I noticed was the broken entry in menu>internet>FirefoxBrowser: no reaction after click-on.
Secondly I noticed the impossibility of installing a desktop-starter for FF by right-clicking in the desktop and filing in the popup form (same thing: no reaction by clicking the starter).
I made a link on desktop from "file:///root/.mozilla/firefox/firefox
/firefox", this works.
To reach the toppic, when I'm now commanding "print", there shows up the printing-dialog window, with the only possibility to print to file(as usual.. Sad )
Now I installed your above posted
gtklp-1.2.7-i386.pet hoping it would turn it all towards the good end -no, it didn't. Sad(
So, what can be wrong - where can it be wrong?
(Tried out an new Firefox-profile with no better fortune!)
