and installed on puppy lucid 5.1 now when i start stellarium is shows as .0.10.5 - does that mean the whole stellarium has been updated ?


I just did what you did and same result.. however, did you notice that there was a 35M data file in that link also? Don't know for sure, but a fair bet would be that that is part of the full update.

Cheers


hi 01micko just updated my post before reading yours - i have installed the 35M date file as well now as some things (plug-ins) were not working with just the 3 M download - every thing seems to work as it should with both installed Cool

Also booted pfix=ram and installed all the dependences for 0.10.4 (but not stellarium 0.10.4 its self) from the ubuntu repo along with the 35M and 3M 0.10.5 .deb files from launchpad and it works so both are .deb files are needed.

Here's another game for Lucid 5.1:

Dreamchess 3D chess game where you can rotate the board viewing angle. Comes with a few themes. Just under 5MB.

Get it here:

Tested on Lucid 5.1 I'm not sure about Quirky as yet. I'll have a go later tonight.

Can anyone recommend a USB fax modem compatible with Lucid?


@scsijon
Thanks for the tip about the video refresh frequency. Sure enough lowering it to 30-80 from 30-85 did the trick and I am now at 1024x768 with my Intel 865G video!

@sinc
Now I can see the WM Switcher menu entry thanks to scsijon Smile

I thought that this was because murga-linux.comn is very slow in responding many times. I think sometimes a request gets lost and if I click Stop and then again click the link it often goes through. But if it is not that then we can add an update when the solution is found.
The fact that murga-linux.com was slow was my first idea also.
But I have the same issue with other web sites.
For the moment I exclusively use lucid.
But the fact that the nameserver entry just disappears is strange no.
In order to make this reply, I had to run the connection setup again.
The response I typed earlier is lost in cyberspace.
Just after posting this, I booted from quirky 1.2 and used it up to now.
I never had the issue that the nameserver entry in /etc/resolv.conf disappeared. I didn't have to setup the connection again either.

However some times I had to push 'try again' in SeaMonkey.
It looks to me also that SeaMonkey did run snappier in quirky.

Béèm, Right now Firefox is running perfectly for me--no delay at all <well almost>. I took a hint off the forum and Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Network -> Settings and checked No Proxy. It hasn't worked this well in a while.

If others could try that we could put it in an Update if it really helped.

The suggestion is from DaveS

Good chance as I have had something similar with Firefox in both Quirky02 and Quirky NOP, though the connection remains intact. try changing the way Firefox connects to the internet, edit>prefs>advanced>network>settings, no proxy, or maybe configure that differently. No Proxy has been working for me.....

BTW, I also set the cache at zero..

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Tronkel's Dreamchess game and also Seamonkey 1.1.18 (as per rjbrewer's suggestion) are now in the puppy-lucid repo of Puppy Package Manager.

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/Packages-puppy-lucid-official

You can download the index file and copy it into /root/.packages in order to avoid the hassle of updating the repos. The seamonkey is the package from Puppy 4 but it seems to work nicely. Seamonkey shows missing library files--but they are not really missing. I will fix that.

Playdayz, FireFox isn't SeaMonkey, but I am certain you knew. Wink
I use SeaMonkey.
As far as I knew I never use a proxy and the option has normally been set at such, but nevertheless I checked.
And to my surprise proxy was set to 'use system proxy setting'.
Don't know how that comes, I didn't do it on purpose.
I changed also to no proxy now. Will see if there is a change.

Some 3 hours ago I installed wary 030 and am running it now.
The nameserver entry in /etc/reslov.conf didn't get erased.

Tomorrow I'll retry lucid with no proxy. Too late now at 01:28 am.

I believe that is the default, I will ask on the Seamonkey support discussion list for an explanation.

do you mean that by default your proxy is on, strange, as mine has been off from the start and my record book of default settings say I haven't played with this setting.

you may also find it can increase further by installing the "googlesharing" extension in add-ons, it actually does the reverse but still allows you to control whether you are or not. I know it gives me a positive bump when on dialup.

regards

No, it was set to Use System settings for proxy, which I also believe is the default.

All of my browsers seem to be running well tonight--no trace of the Try Again message.

LXDE

Would anyone like to fix this up for us--or would a group collaborate on it? I got a tip from Eyes-Only today that he had it running so I made the pet.; It needs some work but it could be very useful. For one thing, it (Openbox) is compositable, at least I understand that it is, which means compiz could run, and that is a goal for our next version.

http://www.diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/Lxde-0.5.0-Lucid.pet

I installed the pet and then started it by exiting to a prompt and running 'xwin lxde' Eyes-Only said he had written or rewritten the startup script--maybe he will send it. Thanks.

The menu is a mess and lxterminal does not run--those are two things I noticed. And, oh yes, the onlyw ay I could exit from it was CTRL-Alt_Backspace.

It appears from one site that it will run on 32 or 64 bit, so good in Lucid and Fatdog64. Yes?

strange, maybe it was turned off back in the 3.5.5 pet which i used as a base. Nowadays I just over copy the personal data and amend the pointer file in .mozilla after install on a new system.

oh well

5.1 seems to be doing it's job now, take a deep breath, next up 5.2 Laughing

If Puppy had the support Ubuntu has, it would be #1.
No. 2 means you can still get better and I know Puppy Linux will! Cool Wink

Anyone started a bit torrent for 5.1?

I am waiting for Playdayz to start a 5.2 thread
for 'Luci' - using that name for slight differentiation Smile

ideas can be added here (comments won't need registering until we get a spam problem)
