pup_stardust-011.iso (99Mb) .... mirror
md5sum: 4de123d805aab6db48d3c6b6dd9baf80

BE AWARE!!!!
If you have Puppy installed, you MUST run this with the prefix 'puppy pfix=ram'. Else, the Stardust desktop will not install.


Here is the good old Stardust icon-theme updated for Puppy Stardust (thanks to 01micko)



Comments version 011
We are getting closer, no big news in this release...
- The shutdown procedure has moved from the menu to a dialog box. Not my personal choice, but no big deal for me so here it is. I have left the shutdown-menu as an alternative option in Pmenu. You can set it as the mouse-right-menu or similar. Also added a 'leave' button in the top-tray.
- Rox has become much more integrated now. I have used Hairywills roxrightclicks as a base, but made a complete new structure underneath it. Instead of using hardcoded links in the rox right-click menu, I have made rox-apps of the required defaults-apps (You'll find them in /usr/local/apps). These are linked into the rox-menu. In combination with the 'default-setter' in pcc, we have a flexible system for rox integration. One of the menu-items are 'Add to Favorites' which instant adds a new item to the Favorites menu. - I like that one.... Smile

On the bad side, I had to remove some 'fixes' from last week.
- MHHP made a improved pup_event_frontend, but because of alignment issues I have temporary returned to the old script. The drive icons became halfway hidden by the main tray, and I couldn't figure out the correct order at boot to get everything play the same game. - Pwidgets should be started first to avoid drive-icons above widgets. But, then rox set wallpaper after, and widgets background became corrupted.
- Ecubes partview wouldn't run.
- There has been many reorts that Pmount in 010 didn't work. This was an upgraded version from shinobar. We have to go back to the original until things are settled...

The Stardust Desktop Environment has got some kind of 'structure', so I have uploaded some stuff (see bottom of this post). It is NOT meant for use, but for experiments, and because I think it's time to share. How this should be done in the future, is not clear to me, so any viewpoint is welcome. The packages is
- StardustDE which holds the added/updated files to get a Stardust Desktop Environment. It is large, but most of it should replace original Puppy stuff. Note that original icon-themes are not entirely compatible with Stardust. The included theme weight alone around 230Kb.
- Stadust_pre-installation_script is the script I use to build the Stardust iso. The only part that is important for Stardust Desktop Environment, is to remove some original icons, rox-files... This is not critical, but you will get some quirkies. This script is not meant for any other person than Ziggy (it is hardcoded for my system), so look at it, and see how Stardust is built..... Don't expect it to build any Stardust iso for you.
- Stardust_Pwidgets is a stripped version of the original Pwidgets. I don't think it should harm anything to use the original Pwidgets, but building a 99Mb operating system requires complete focus on every kilobyte. Wink

#Rox menu includes logical links to default apps/actions (thanks to Hairywill for roxrightclicks)

____________________________________________________________________________

The following list shows many items that is taken out of the iso. But, it is not as critical as it seems. Most of these are tiny apps, and you have not been aware of many of them. Simply because other apps do the job.

Aqualung has left, and Pmusic is back. Pmusic has evolved in both features and speed, so It is more a matter of longterm strategy. I hope it will be possible to build more around ffmpeg in the future. We could hopefully get rid of lidsnd, libsamplerate and maybe libxine...

Gadmin-Rsync is out as well, since it crashed on first run. I don't think Pbackup fill the backup issue completely. It would be wonderful if there exists a tiny but complete backup suit.

If you see something that you would have changed, added or removed, I will be very glad if you mentioned it. Because of my limited time, it would be best if you deliver the patch.... My knowledge of network/internet tools is close to zero, so these are nearly untouched.

Possible improvements are easy to see
- Improve artwork.
- alternative multimedia tools using ffmpeg.
- hunt more files we don't need.
- upgrade gui in some of the scripts.
- extend the control center.
- replacement of Gparted (901kb)
- boot Puppy with pfix=fsck
- driver adds/updates
- ...

This is meant to be a full featured user-oriented Puppy....Though, I have to admit that the biggest modem drivers is removed.




So what's added
- Stardust desktop environment - including pcc (Puppy control center), desktop configuration tools and Pwidgets
- Pwireless2 (replaces Pwireless)
- ATI graphic drivers
- Broadcom wifi drivers
- splix - Samsung, Xerox, Dell printer drivers
- acpid
- Pmusic (replaces aqualung)
- woo-ff
- printoxx
- floppy-formater (replaces floppy-format.sh)
- gtkmoz (replaces PuppyBrowser)
- Pupradio (replaces pstreamvid)
- seahaven
- lameNFSxplorer
- lameSMBxplorer (replaces pnethood)
- pstartupsound
- startmount
- fileedit (set to defaulttextviewer)
- default-wizard
- RetroVol (replaces absvolume and zmixer)
- Galculator
- Pscreenshot
- xgamma



Some scripts has been upgraded
- cpu-scaling tool
- drive_all
- fixmenus
- icon_switcher
- JwmThemeMaker
- Pburn
- Pfilesearch
- Pfind
- sfsconverter
- theme_switcher
- you2pup
- xorgwizard



And what does the Stardust-generator change
- Install desktop at first startup rather than keep it in the iso to save space
- snap desktop icons - medium grid
- simple Pmount facelift
- Xlock is fixed
- start pCD instead of defaultmediaplayer when click on audio-CD icon
- seamonkey buttons
- defaultaudioplayer is changed from aqualung to pmusic
- defaultaudiomixer is changed from zmixer to retrovol
- Net-setup goes to Pwireless2 for wireless configuration
- Darker background color in: rxvt, geany, abiword
- Generates icon-themes, gtk-themes and analog clock-skins




And of course, something had to leave
*** Programs ***
- absvolume
- aqualung
- background_reshape
- burniso2cd
- calcoo
- cdp
- cgtkcalc
- didiwiki
- e3
- EmbeddedBookmarks
- floppy-format.sh
- gcolor2 (color chooser)
- gdmap
- gexec
- gfnrename - maybe better than PRename, but this is bash and easy updated.
- glightoff
- gtkdialog markup editor - devx ???
- gtklogfileviewer - Does any script use anymore ???
- gtksourceview
- gview
- libmad
- libsnd (mhwaveedit (not updated) and aqualung used libsnd)
- madplay
- mtpaintsnaphot.sh
- Net-setup (old version)
- nicoedit
- pcdripper
- Pdisk - could maybe be in use by some wizard
- picpuz
- pictureviewer
- pmirror/mirdir
- pmwget (PMirrorget)
- pnetnood
- pplog
- pstreamvid
- ptooltips - tool to show tooltips in gtkdialog - not longer in use
- PuppyBrowser
- PuppyPdf - Abiword does exactly the same
- Pwireless
- pwsget
- quisp
- rsync / gadmin-rsync - crashes on first run
- securetelnetshell
- tile
- waveplay - linked to aplay
- xAutoconnect - Pwireless2 should do the job
- xcalc
- xclipboard
- Xconsole
- xfontsel
- ycalc
- zfind
- zmixer

*** Trimming ***
- cdrkit - Pburn has very few dependencies
- jwmconfig2
- netpbm

*** Control panel has ditched some ***
- countrywizard
- XserverWizard
- wizardwizard
- And plenty of menu items

*** Graphics ***
- All wallpapers
- some Gtk-themes
- All Icon-themes
- many mini-icons

*** misc ***
- some apps NOT in control center has also lost their place in the menu
--> sfs-version-converter - warnings pointing to it is changed.
--> Pstopwatch - Ptimer should be enough.
- some documentation files
- some audio files
- the biggest modem drivers
- many fixed fonts

Puppy 4.3.1 Bugfixes
- JWM tray configuration.
- JWM keyboard shortcut configuration.
- Xlock - Lock screen.
- Kill pid of wallpaper setter when closing window.
- Shutdown / Reboot from menu after NFS error.
- Execute code from Geany with 'execute' button.
- Xf-prot virus checker (thanks to tasmod)
- Allow unique 24 pixel icons and symlinked icons in icon-themes.
- The xorgwizard screws up xorg.conf if more than one screen. (thanks to Pizzagood)
- xgamma was missing in xorgwizard (thanks to PANZERKOPF)

http://www.meownplanet.net/zigbert/pup_stardust-011.iso

not found error.

File can not be found.

Could it be some change in the name of it? _ and - messed up or you have not uploaded it yet?

http://www.meownplanet.net/zigbert/pup_stardust-010.iso exists there though. Could you have misplaced the iso?

Edit

nope the only file with similar name there is the
http://www.meownplanet.net/zigbert/pup_stardust-010.iso

and that is the 010 fine and not the 011 so maybe some mistake?

heheheh I don't want to win a price I want to download the promised iso file.

Thanks it works now to mount an usb several times and rebooting in between.


But you forgot to connect the firewall menu button to the actual program and you forgot to untick the index search of pfind.
But good you told me to shut it off and you or somebody told me how to get the firewall going but now I don't remember anymore.


Ooops found it again.

try /usr/sbin/firewall_install.sh

I downloaded the codecs for mplayer and tested on svt.se
I wonder why I don't dare to check nrk.no hard black metal Smile

Your stardust have 1GB free at start but as soon me had added the codecs then it went down to 480 something free out of 3GB mem.

should I have "trim the fat"? I usually feel too stupid to know what one dare to trim.

But to lose 500meg just for codecs seems excessive but it is not your fault.

Stardust render streaming videos better than other 431.
so thanks for fixing the mount usb problem.

Hello willie

If you have the pup_stardust-010.iso saved on a drive somewhere you can use the delta file I posted.

___________________________________________________

I can confirm usb mounting is fixed Smile

Cheers

Hello, zigbert

First of all, I appreciate your effort and all the gifts you have been giving.

It is good to see newer versions keep coming.

However, Stardust is being updated a little too fast, in my humble opinion.

When I look at the list of the changes, I wonder if they are already ironed out when you released previous version just short while ago.

All I am saying is that each version has bigger, bolder steps and a special meaning for version numbers.

With all due respect,

John

One hit F5 once or twice but wait in between. sometimes one need to wait some seconds between such try and maybe second or third it works again. Be patient when you wait. say 5 seconds between those try with F5

works for me to do so I use Firefox.

Ziggy, I need your help with this one:

I have 1.5GB free when it is booted before it has made a pupsave file but when I have saved a 64mb pupsave file and boot second time then it is only 57MB free of memory out of 3GB


So something is either wrong in what I do or something hog all the memory.

puppy NOP has at least 373 MB free

what is going on?

      <Option>nolist</Option>
   </Group>


In /etc/xdg/templates/_root_jwmrc

Cool......... waited for the Delta this time. thanks Mick. Damn the grey icons instead of blue. Dropped them in from 09, but I guess if I change the theme again they will be overwritten.............
