There must have been simultainious posts, I didn't see MU's post. (Sorry)

I'm modding LanPuppies structure to simplify it & slim down the size by 70MB.
I'd hoped to post it this weekend, but it might be next week, sorry again...
but the closer it is to the final form, the more successful the testing will be.
I don't want you guys to go through many many versions as I alter it.

m1r0; I'll probably use MU's site as it doesn't have space problems any more.

What are you doing with PXE?
The LanPuppy GUI has a button to make a boot floppy disk that works great.
If your attempting to get a PC's BIOS to PXE boot, most older PC's won't do it.
PC's that're about 2ghz & faster usually will PXE boot, most all newer ones will.
For older PC's & for the testing, the PXE boot floppy will do very well, it's FAST.

For older PCs I got 10 used 3Com NICs on ebay that do PXE boot for $3 each!

3Com Model # = 3C905C-TX-M

hi m8 Smile

What are you doing with PXE?
----if u saw pic on MU's FTP u will see my network scheme, none of the terminals dont have cd or floppy

PC's that're about 2ghz & faster usually will PXE boot, most all newer ones will.
---- on my network pic all 10 pc's have PXE boot option in bios

Flash; md5 is a darn good idea, & the DB's tables could be separate files (I think).
Otherwise the DB could be split into a number of smaller DBs of a given size,
& more added as the DB grows & as the last DB file reaches the target size.

I'll run this by my DB programming friend & see just what he thinks about it...


m1r0; The pix shows the server is connected to the wired LAN by Wireless?
I might be wrong about that, but if not, the server REALLY needs be on
the ether LAN, as the server sees most of the LanPuppy client's traffic.
A few LanPuppies on a WAN will work, but even my daughter's PC on the
WAN is rather slow when compared to the rest of the ether connected PCs.

I'm wrestling with finding out where Xfce's REAL startup code is for Login.
I thought I knew where it started, but further testing showed me wrong.
I PMed Dougal who has a good working knowledge of Xfce for help...

evening m8,
i just checked post,

i dont know if this is what u ask , but on ubuntu (xfce) we edited in /usr/share/gdm/themes to change login screen.

wlan server on picture is for curent windows system. for puppy testing it will be all on lan.

did your friend solved that domain problem ?

Thanks m1r0; I had another suggestion that I thought was the fix,
sadly it wasn't to be, there's just too many differences between Xfce installs.
The fix given in another post was for a Puppy with a Xfce package installed,
the one I'm working with is SimplePup that has Xfce as it's main WM already.
I looked where you said & there is no /usr/share/gdm dir. at all.
So it would appear that the fix will be specifically for this Puppy version only.

No I haven't seen him, & apparently he isn't too concerned about it (Weard).
As I said above, I'll accept MU's kindly offer to host LanPuppy,
as space at his site is now 275GB, large programs aren't a problem.

Sunburnt, our conversation about a DVD-based server seemed a bit off-topic so I separated it and put it in its own thread here.

m1r0; I've got LanPuppy working well, I'll test tomorrow & alpha package it.
I browsed the web without any network setup on the client & posted here.
I played the BeachBoys song Kokomo from the server, sounds great.
I've previously watched movies from the server & it worked pretty good.

There's sooo much to test that I'll try everything out & then fix from feedback.
Programmers know it working on my PC doesn't mean it'll work other PCs.
So with that in mind... the REAL test is if it works for you guys, that's the ticket!

It's working good, I decided to test & fill in some of the extra undone stuff,
being as you said you were busy for a little bit...

I'm going to test it a bit more for a day or two & then make 2 packages:
PupServer & LanPuppy_Xfce to post at MU's site.

Then more polishing of both packages to move them closer to beta release.

The sfsManager is mostly ready, I have to make an actual adv. SFS file though.

And I'm looking for a Puppy-1 IceWM "XP clone" to make into a LanPuppy client.
Both Xfce & an XP clone will cover most average user's choices for popular WMs.
