sorry mick,

try this:

create (copy) a 3 or 4 page doc
goto print
goto page setup
change scale to less than 100% (I used 80)
goto preview

it's showing the data for a single page shrunk on that page rather than the data shrunk for the page with more data onpage therefore less pages used.

going back and printing it gets this same reaction too, same number of pages with data shrunk.

maybe a geany problem or the printing system, don't know which but it's a neusance. Or maybe i'm using the wrong settings?

regards
scsijon

Just a quick report here, my power cord came out on the lappie and 100 recovered just fine. I had to let it charge for a few minutes and I saw fsck's happen on sda2 and my save file, didn't lose anything.

Hi Mick!

Finally got around to installing your new 100 version.

It's FAST for sure....

BROWSERS:
(1) Seamonky.... works fine
(2) Chromium-11.... works fine
(3) Iron 6-7-8.... will NOT work, none of them. Was thinking, Iron doesn't track your IP like all the others, could that be it? Sure has me baffled as Iron works in every other puppy I have!

Printer:
(1) Scanner works beautiful with xsane.
(2) Printer: Works but... you have to un-plug the power then re-plug it back in which is a total pain. It will not print from bootup. (HP Deskjet 1050 All-in-One J410 series)

That's all the problems I encountered so far, everything else seems fine that I used to date.

Strange behaviours with USB devices is a "feature" of many new Puppies.

Indian,

please check (as i'm on a different workshop at the moment) that you have both of the hp pets (hpijs, hplip) installed, either by woof (part of the default install) or by ppm (you), my hp1055 works without a problem with spup100.

I've still only found the one nusance level bug to date, everything else I normally use is ok.

Hi guys

Sorry for lack of answers, been a bit busy, both life and puppy/linux Smile

I'll get into some detail tomorrow with the bug reports.

At the moment I'm posting from the first L33T puppy (spup based on slackware-13.37 Wink ). Of course there's about as many bugs as stars in the sky but it works and I'm online through wireless, no hassles. Boots direct to desktop too.

A note for MHHP, I found some repos.. checkout salix, you'll find PACKAGES.TXT with dep info and an extra repo for 13.37 Very Happy

Cheers!

And , now you tell me about salix' making their own PACKAGES.TXT with deps Shocked Shocked Smile.
Didn't think of salix (and they actually released builds of late-pre-release 13.37 slack) and the other derivatives, so, I just installed slack-current a week prior to its release and built the PACKAGES.TXT with deps, using Stabellini's tool - took my, not to modern, computer some 30 hrs to complete (incidentally, obscurely announced here) Smile - non-cunning feet walks twice the distance, or something like that Confused.

Anyway, had two tries at woofing-up a pre-release-13.37spup, but tripped on the xorg hurdle Shocked Embarassed Smile.

Awaiting your xorg-hacks Smile Smile.

Cheers and ta for the salix tip, will come in handy Smile/ MHHP

I also used stabellini's 'pra' and it took awhile on my reasonably fast box Shocked .. so I left it overnight and ended up with an 11M file Shocked Shocked (10.5M of it was whitespace Laughing ).
Oh. I fixed the bug (well worked around) where there is a bunch of +PACKAGE entries for dependencies in processed puppy compliant file (Packages-slackware-13.37-official). I did see your files built from pra too Smile . TFT

In 0setup, line 346
Code:

--- DB_dependencies="`echo -n "$DB_ONELINE" | grep -o ' PACKAGE REQUIRED: .* PACKAGE ' | sed -e 's% PACKAGE %%' | cut -f 2-99 -d ' ' | sed -e 's% [^,]*%%g' | sed -e 's%,%,+%g' | sed -e 's/[^0-9a-zA-Z.+_=,-]//g'`" #100626
--- [ "$DB_dependencies" != "" ]&& DB_dependencies='+'"$DB_dependencies"

+++ DB_dependencies="`echo -n "$DB_ONELINE" | grep -o ' PACKAGE REQUIRED: .* PACKAGE ' | sed -e 's% PACKAGE %%' | cut -f 2-99 -d ' ' | sed -e 's% [^,]*%%g' -e 's%,%,+%g' -e 's/[^0-9a-zA-Z.+_=,-]//g'`" #100626 #110501 speed up sed
+++    [ "$DB_dependencies" != "" ]&& DB_dependencies='+'"$DB_dependencies"
+++    [ "$DB_dependencies" = "+PACKAGE" ]&&  DB_dependencies=""
Will be interesting to see if the sed call is sped up with my hack, seemed faster to me on a fast box, but I didn't time it Smile

another fix for gdk-pixbuf in /etc/rc.d/rc.update line 74
Code:

--- gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders

+++ if [ -d /usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf-* ];then gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders --update-cache
+++   else
+++  gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders
+++  fi


That should take care of woof.

Now xorg is another kettle of fish.

On my first attempt I couldn't get a desktop, tried lots of things but nothing, so I went to the /var/log/Xorg.0.log and openned it with MP, lots of entries so I decided to mount a drive and copy it to a file (I'll attach it just for interest.)

It seems I was missing a crucial file called "evdev" for the keyboard, proving fatal to X, oh btw, from the prompt I just tried to run "X" (which points to Xorg anyways).

So I found evdev, part of a package called xkeyboard-config so I added that to the PKGS_SPECS_TABLE variable and away I went.. end result.. blackscreen! Shocked Shocked Shocked ... no recovery Sad .

So then I tried something... just added the /etc/X11/xkb/rules/evdev file to the tree (extracted from that package).. hey presto! A desktop! So I need to add that to some "xorg_hack.pet".

Now, I got boot to desktop half going.. it works like Barry's in Quirky. Before starting the woof project you need to append :
DISTRO_XORG_AUTO='no'
to the DISTRO_SPECS file in the root of the woof tree.
Don't worry, you are asked later if you want (semi)automatic boot to desktop and it changes that variable to 'yes'. Still trying to look for a neat way to make it fully automatic ala playdayz.

Cheers!

I have Dropbox running perfectly on Spup. I am using the portable apps version.
There is probably a smaller option available as a .pet somewhere, but what the heck, it works great.

I have used Dropbox as a linux portable app with success as well. I have also found that the sfs file for Dropbox that is in Jemimah's repository of puppeee goodies works quite well. It is in the pet store at puppeee.com/web.

@ Dawnsboy

downloaded and installed your keucr_2.6.34.1-spup100.pet, no need to reboot, worked fine after restarting X; my Aspire One D255 now reads SD cards nicely, thanks a lot! Very Happy

And hearty congrats to 01micko for his admirable job on this Puppy version -- wonder what can be made better in spup-120!?
_______

Edited: one bug came out right after posting, sadly -- sound works no more when booting the newly-made frugal install. (I also had to run the network wizard, since there was no web connection anymore, but it was normally set up in a few seconds).

Sound worked OK automatically at first-time boot from a USB-HD formatted flash memory; now it's no use setting up ALSA again nor substituting the first-boot /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf file from the USB flash memory to the frugal-installed one.

Seems there's nobody with such issue in this thread. What did I do wrong?

Well: Acer Aspire One D-255 with Intel 82801G soundcard, which the ALSA setup wizard recognizes, but then exits with an error before "woofing".

*Solved -- why, my bad of course! Sure: I had copied the savefile from the USB flash drive to the HD, but that's not the way to go. I wanted to keep the settings for the touchpad and the background image which had already been done, never dreaming that I would lose all sound! "Never pretend be wiser than you actually are."

Rebooted from the HD ignoring that savefile - voilà, sound works nicely AND keeps going on subsequent boots... Same for networking. Embarassed

Ha Ha... when you built the .iso Mick, you left a spare copy of Gnumeric and Goffice in My Documents. How come this has not been spotted before LOL.... Smile
