Video failure on Pansonic Toughbook CF-28 (dpup 040 works fine).

There is something altered in the newer Puppy versions because they all are failing to display on this laptop whereas the older ones, e.g. dpup 040, work fine.

If I do a CTRL-ALT-Backspace I can see a light column up the middle and a flicker so I know it is trying to display.

If I type "xwin" and hit enter I see filckering of the display as well.

So the problem appears to be in xorgwizard.

Video is Intel 82830.

WDYT?

Good news about Wine.

I went to get the latest wine from green_dome so I could make an sfs, thinking having wine installed without using any lucisave memory would be convenient, and green_dome has already done it!

So, wine will be in the SFS-getter in the next version. Thanks green_dome.

The wine programs foobar2000 and Exact Audio Copy are already available in PPM. One piece of bad news is that it seems wine can only play audio through the default device.

I use 237 daily now so that tells me it is a good one. I would not use it if it failed in any way that I know of.

One thing I wonder about.

Now that Wolfe or MyWolfe exists that do something that many many linux users are very accustomed to that they have to log in to use the distro.

Could that be next project to make a choice puppy which behave as puppy for all those that have become to love puppy as it is with frugal install and all and if one want it a puppy that behave as any other puppy distro with log in and restrictions and such to make puppy familiar?


Maybe I should not mention it at all because I fail to use common distros I am too used to Puppy to be able to work in other distro's more restricted formats.

And I have no idea if Wolfe really is more secure than Lupu is?

But choice is a good thing?

MyWolfe isn't secure, you're logged in as root - you can remove root's password in a one-liner Laughing

Anyway, no matter how hard it is to log in, you're still root.

PostPosted: Sun 14 Nov 2010, 16:04    Post subject: Trinity time - solved  

I have solved the time problem when using Trinity on luci23x - there was a missing #!/bin/sh line in the settime file in /root/Startup.

If edited to:

Code:
#!/bin/sh

#added by playdayz to make timezone persistent
hwclock --hctosys --localtime


then the time is displayed correctly and both hwclock and date show the same correct time.

Cheers
Peter

Iron is Gold Very Happy

Thank you!

Seems the fastest of them all.

The fonts seem better, or is that my imagination?

You know what? It installed in my language Cool

Youtube is definitely better (fullscreen) than the other browsers, or is that my imagination again?

Would love to hear what others think about Iron.

playdayz, I made a xchat template for Woof and it works perfectly with Debian Squeeze ... do you want me to upload it? I also made templates for about 15-20 packages, I'm trying to use more Debian/Ubuntu and less Puppy packages to make things more future-proof.

I'm writing this from a dpup built this way, no size penalty for some reason Smile

I use Iceape and almost all applications from Debian, seems very solid. That's the first stage in the trinitypup roadmap Laughing

Would that be fullscreen at youtube or where? Also, Would it matter if you used a different wm, jwm instead of openbox, etc?

I was OK with youtube fullscreen and Iron 7 and openbox, also OK with Firefoxs b7.

I do remember that the nv driver and fullscreen and flashplayer were trouble before. What about using the nvidia drivers from Quickpet: Drivers?

I was OK with fullscreen Medici TV also.

It might not be your imagination. I think chromium/Iron includes some of the ffmpeg codecs itself rather than using the ones it finds.

No problem here either with fullscreen youtube, Iron7 and openbox.
Also your test-site www.medici.tv didn't crash for me.
This is without installing any drivers on an nvidia ion machine.

igu, Do you mean a logon template for Xchat? And the other templates, those would be the packages-templates from Woof? What Puppy packages have you now replaced with debian? Thanks.
