Barely on-topic, but I can't control myself Wink The new IRON pet playdayz posted is superb!!!.

My impression at first was "twice as fast as Mozilla", but today I found more scientific minds confirming Iron's speed in absolute numbers.

Here is the short thread from the Iron's forum.

Will it be in Quickpet or PPM?
Thanks again playdayz!.

EDIT Ah, just saw Iron IS available from Quickpet already, not yet in the browsers list, but in News.

PostPosted: Mon 15 Nov 2010, 16:51    Post_subject: unexpected power fail question (with Luci 236)  

First of all, let me thank those of you who have worked so hard on this release - good work. I have Luci-237 installed on two memory constrained, P3, "elderly" laptops and I couldn't be more pleased. The addition of the Iron browser was especially sweet.

My question:
I experienced an unexpected power fail with 236 during a download and upon reboot, the login script stopped before starting the xwindows with a prompt. No indication of fdsk activity, just a prompt. I booted to my 4.31 partition, ran fdsk (fixed several probs) and rebooted. Still stopped prior to xwindows start. I typed "reboot" at the prompt and the boot went fine. Now all is OK. What is the proper way to recover from an unexpected power fail? The partition is EXT3.
Dave

Why not include mtpaint 3.34.57 ?
Wary is now including it.
Here's a version I compiled

Did you try the Alsamixer? (Menu > Multimedia > Mediatools >)
There you can navigate to "MIC" using the keyboard arrow keys, then, using the "up-and-down-arrow-keys" adjust the volume.

Hi Superattilius,

Does your reply mean your mic problem is solved? or the opposite? Confused

I only used alsamixer to adjust my loudspeaker volume, so i have no personal experience with tuning the mic.

My alsamixer looks quite different from yours, probably because this machine is Nvidia and yours is Intel.

Hope your problem is solved. Otherwise just continue posting here.

PostPosted: Mon 15 Nov 2010, 19:20    Post_subject: Calling the Best & Brightest  

I have been trying all day to build the ATI Catalyst Driver in Lucid (luci-237). It would build successfully in Karmic Puppy but never has in Lucid. Here is the posting.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=62008

We have been using the open-source radeon driver which functions well and provides hardware acceleration. By my testing the Catalyst fglrx driver provides about twice the frame rate and I am wondering if it is what we need to get compiz working with Radeon cards.

Thank you.

don570. You are the expert about using mtpaint with a touchpad. Do I gather that it is A-OK?

PostPosted: Mon 15 Nov 2010, 22:17    Post_subject: SAMBA PET  

  • Mobeus and Shinobar's SAMBA, works fashionably well on PUP5.2 of 11/13/10. I tested 1 SAMBA PET and both SAMBA SFSs.
  • Mobeus is currently satisfying a request from Barry for access to his PET for an inclusion in WARY.
  • 01Micko may want to consider making at least one of the incarnations available via QuickPET.
For anyone interested, install it on PUP5.2 via PET/SFS and use the instructions for setup, here. Turns PUP5.2 into a full Window7 replacement. or a NAS.

Report on my pursuit of catalyst.

Guess what? I built a luci with kernel 2.6.33.5 (not 2.6.33.2 as we have always used) and with that luci I was able to build ATI catalyst, which installed and ran.

Now there are two possibilities. I can possibly use that luci to build a package that will work on our regular kernel 2.6.33.2, or, we can start to build luci with 2.6.33.5. It has been a long day. Thank you for your help.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
gcmartin, I was meaning to ask you about your comment (I think yours anyway) that Shinobar had a good Samba.

What is the most use to me is an explanation and recommendation. Is that one Samba prepared by Moebius and Shinobar together, can you provide a link, if it is two Sambas, please discuss and recommend. I know I am asking a lot, but we need people to step up and become experts on particular software, because two people are not enough. Especially when one person spends 12 hours trying to build a darn video driver! It is too late now for inclusion of a new pet in in Quickpet (but we could include a new sfs). 01micko is bound to know more about samba than I do, but that is not saying much Wink What we could use is a specific recommendation of which Samba to use. And then some discussion with 2 or 3 people would be awesome. Thank you.

PostPosted: Mon 15 Nov 2010, 23:30    Post_subject: SAMBA  

I am PM'ing each of them right now. Shinobar has an excellent utility for assisting UNIX folder consistency with his SFS and Mobeus has both a PET and an SFS as well as having done some things important to those who want to use Puppy to avoid $1000s of dollars (SOHOs/SMBs/Enterprises).

My testing has been done in a mere LiveCD environment, thus far, while they have built AND tested on frugal and full platforms.The SAMBAs I tested came from here from Mobeus and from here from Shinobar

This should be important to Jeminah's work and certainly fits in Kirk's work because his systems were all built in the last 6 years....meaning lots of cycles and lots of memory and DVDs.

Thank you.

From using other Linux OS's The answer is yes. No video card is going to work at it's best if you use a generic driver. The one designed by the manufacturer gets you all the bells and whistles.

Thanks gcmartin and playdayz.
I think we have 3 options for SMBA for Lucid Puppy:
My SFS, Mobeus's SFS and PET, and samba-tng from rcrsn51.
But also i think any of all the 3 are not the KILLER.

As for my SFS, it has nice feature as the start up script, automount the shared volume, non-root(user spot) access, and etc. But it is not ready to support shared printer.

Well i will start a project to brush up the mine at the another topic:
Additional Software (PETs, n' stuff) » Network
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=60836
But may take a time... i have not yet success of my printer with the cups of Lucid... Crying or Very sad

I was lucky enough to have a radeon ATI to test and was able to try one of the efforts. I thought that was from Mick? It did not take long to test. Any other ATI radeon users able to test?

Here is another job for someone suggested by Larry:

You know that glassy pup you have showed me? Do you think it would go with the background named balls_blue65.jpg (or something like it). I think it might be fun to have some big primary colors. Just an idea, thanks, larry

[apologies to Larry for posting a pm but I feel this is something a lot of people are better at]

This is the glassy Pup series - Larry is referring to the transparent non colour ones
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=419264#419264
not sure where 'balls_blue65.jpg' is - it might be part of Warrens extra wallpapers in the ppm?
Can anyone inspire our wallpaper makers?

Please post there with any progress linked here

Thanks guys Smile

Interesting....

Did you compile the kernel or is it one of BK's?

Do you want to extend testing and run with it? (OR, release soon and make this the next version... 5.3??? [oh, and there is only 1 possibility Wink ])

I am getting bored with this kernel Laughing (though it has proven to be rock solid Wink )

Artie has an old issue with a ps2 mouse driver.. I wonder if it fixes it?

Post it!!!! I want to play!!! (maybe as a lucy or something different? The kernel itself could be the compiz issue with radeon)

(currently playing with latest macpup and iron7 Twisted Evil )
