Darry's 'old' plus iso is about 115MB and the updated one (without the pets and libraries to be downloaded and added separately) about 185MB. The deb glibc 2.11 update package is under 4MB. What is the additional 65MB? (Maybe I got something confused).

Thanks for granting my wish for a new improved 4.3.2.


VLC, QT from Wary and Xine were added. VLC was into response nubc

Nice work-in-progress.

A few comments:

1. When updating glibc I always rm /lib/*2.6.1* (old glibc libraries) - saves space.

2. I can't read the black text on the pretty dark blue wallpaper. Menus quite legible.
Interesting screensaver.

3. You2pup 1.3.2 is too old. you2pup 2.2.1 won't download a youtube mp4 though someone claims it works in a puppy 5. you2pup 2.2.1 pet was posted October 2013 based on movgrab (from Dec 2011) that tests out working at youtube, so something else is missing in puppy 4.

There is a standalone youtube-dl pet that works in puppy 4 with glibc 2.7.

4. Mozilla Build of Seamonkey (under both Document and Internet) and Seamonkey Browser are both in the menu - minor goof.

Video, sound, and network work well on my 2003 D600 DELL.

The CPU frequency tool starts with default acpi-cpufreq, min frequency 1GHz (wrong, should be 600mhz) and max 1.6GHz. I changed to min 1.6GHz, clicked on a couple of buttons, and I now have 1.6GHz. This 'speedstep' -enabled computer has a wire that detects if you have paid dell for an OEM power supply and turns down the speed to 600MHz if it does not find a matching psu wire (or if the motherboard wire broke) . You need cpufreq to turn it back up. In Wary 5.5 cpufreq will not accept a higher max frequency than 600MHz. This one improvement has won me over to 4.3.2. The cpufreq tool here is much much simpler and faster to use than in 4.1.2., 4.3.1, or 5.5 Wary.

A perl 5.10 upgrade to 4.3.2-updated might let us use gtk-youtube-viewer (or at least the non-gtk part of it youtube-viewer) for wary 5.5. It works in wary with mplayer and i think will also work with xine. A puppy 5 perl5.10 pet would not install in puppy 4.

Do we need both xine and vlc? The sfs is rather large this way.
xine is in the puppy 4 repository. (Maybe vlc requires xine?).

Yeah sorry about mistakes I conjured it up in a bit of hurry to help yourself and Nubc and others who would find it helpful - the special xine or xine-full is made by Shinobar and in conjuction with ffmpeg update allows pretty good mp4 playback so thanks again the genius that is Shinobar and of Course Ttuuuxxy for the original 4.32v3 and plus. At the end of the day it gives you something to work with. Also Woofy remaster can sometimes produce a few quirky results with remasters, good tool though.

Thankyou Scottsman. Anyway I'm really tired so having a rest so enjoy.

Subject description: 1) not working 2) not needed
 

I downloaded the libxmms.so.1 which has the same size and md5sum as /usr/lib/libxmms.so.1.3.1 already in puppy 4.3.2.

Pstreamvid does not play any of its the default stations with xine - complains of missing plugin and for one station it listed the name of the missing dll.

mplayer from puppy 4 repository played sound in a solid blue box for first and last stations
and nothing at all for the others, even with the 10MB of codecs installed.

I did not run across a recent version of pstreamvid.

The Save dialog box is still partway off the bottom of the screen as it has been in all versions of puppy 4. Resolution 1024x768.

PostPosted: Wed 22 Jan 2014, 01:39    Post subject: mplayer and xine display solid blue  

The movgrab from you2pup 2.2.1 downloads youtube videos if you specify the format (otherwise it looks for webm and downloads nothing).

you2pup (the front end), even with mp4:480x360 in the box, tries to download webm and gets nowheere.

Both xine and the mplayer 4 from the puppy 4 repository play the downloaded file with good sound and solid blue video. I had downloaded (with youtube-dl) and played one of the videos before in another puppy (4.1.2?) with mplayer (from 4.1.2-based pulp linux) and the xine in puppy 4.3.1.

vlc plays both mp4s with good sound and solid black video.

pvidstream plays solid blue videos with mplayer and nothing with xine.

Anyone else have these problems playing known-good mp4s?

I tried both before and after installing vlc and ffmpeg and the other pets.

You may be interested in these 2 mplayer packages from Patriot - ffmpeg is inbuilt.

PostPosted: Thu 23 Jan 2014, 01:01    Post subject: libxmms and blue screens when playing mp4 in 4.3.2  

I think libxmms is already in the .sfs file identical to the one at the download site so no need to add it. Same versions and md5sums.

The mplayer I have been using works in every puppy I have tried it in (4.1.2, 4.3.1 and I think wary 5.5) except this one, where it plays mp4s as solid blue, as does xine, whereas vlc plays them solid black. (An earlier mplayer omitted the sound). So I don't think a newer mplayer is needed. Do mplayer, xine, and vlc work properly in 4.3.2 for the rest of you? My DELL D600 has very standard video (i810 I think).

Should you2pup and pvidstream be omitted?
I would like a text browser but can add my own or ssh to sdf.org[/list]

PostPosted: Thu 20 Mar 2014, 22:54    Post subject: Google Earth  

Anyone know of a '.sfs' Google Earth that works in 4.3.2?

If not, anyone know 'how' to get one of existing ones to work (even a .pet would be OK)?

'Thanks'
