This is a very promising puppy derivative. It has some of the stuff in Fluppy I like (although I don't see the OSD stuff with my fn Keys but I assume they work) but is build on Lucid for more recent packages.

I fixed the VLC issue in a simple way... I mounted a VLC sfs I found and went to the /lib/vlc directory and copied all the codecs out of the folder onto my system.

about package removal (Remove builtin packages)
The link belove is such a tool, Remove built in packages:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=422950#422950
...you then remaster the CD and the application is not just hidden, it is gone.

Note, if your (Woof-built) Puppy has directory /root/.packages/builtin_files, then you do have the infrastructure present to support puppymartin's removal tool.


Snow Puppy is woof built. It has /root/.packages/builtin_files included.
Remove built in packages needs also remastering of the iso. There is some quirks to be known when you remaster. Like /root content, to have those hidden folders and files included which you want to include. Play with it and you will learn how it works. Built in removal gives you possibility to really remove apps from your remastered puppy iso. Backup your savefile before you start playing Smile
I didnt mention this tool at first because I dont have any experience of its usage. But if somebody report of success, we all benefit of the information.

Nice trick. I didnt know that was possible. Do you have a link to that vlc sfs so that I could see what vlc version it is.

James C. Thank you of report. Because of your VLC finding of those missing libs, I found that woof had downloaded wrong hal package which missed those hal libs. I have corrected the error.
For VLC, is there somewhere in the net place for testing different codecs ?

Snow Puppy-008 is close now. It is mostly for including ndiswrapper, some wifi driver modules and added back functionality of old internet connection wizard for ndiswrapper.
I have also included new snapmerge for faster saving when shutdown, new remasterpup2, you2pup corrected and functioning version, fixed scribus of missing libs, fixed the menu lookout.
Now I am wondering should I drop FoxitReader out. I seem to use mostly evince for pdf, and I havent needed FoxitReader more than twice. Snow Puppy iso size will be 230 Mb with older and bigger VLC 1.0.6 (for full codecs) and dropping FoxitReader would reduce the size also.

I don't really know of a site to test codecs but I downloaded Barry K's video testing files which I use, but the link escapes me right now.Playdayz also has some test files and between the two most video formats are covered.I'll try to remember where I got them..... Laughing

Don't see any problem dropping Foxit.... I use it occasionally but it's still available at ibiblio so no problem grabbing it if needed.

jim3630. Can you check in 006 what eth0 driver module and wlan0 driver module is loaded and works. You see them easily from SNS. And do you see them also loaded in 007 with SNS.

I can only think that kernel module driver has now problems with this newly compiled kernel. Drivers should be the same.
And does eth0 and wlan0 work in Fluppy 012 ?
Have you also checked the md5sum of your downloaded iso ?


pemasu in 006 Eth0 is r8169 pci: RTL8101E PCI Express, Wlan0 is "Broadcom Device Unknown" In 007 can't see or load any of the provided drivers to enable to see Wlan0. Don't know about Fluppy 012 but Knoppix v6.44, Fatdog 64 511, and IIRC Mijn Pup 52b3 sees Wlan0 and makes wifi connection by running pwireless or Frisbee. Except Knoppix do have to manually input Ip info then connects. Thanks for all your work on this puppy I enjoy using 006. jim

jim3630. Thank you of additional information. In SNS you should also see what driver is used for wifi. Eth0 seems to use r8169 driver.
I need still information of working wifi driver in those puppies where the connection is succesful.
For wifi broadcom there are b43 and b43legacy drivers at least. I will include also wl driver for broadcom wifi in Snow Puppy-008. Using wl driver needs possibly loaded b43 and ssb drivers unloaded first and also they needs to be blacklisted. At least I remember reading so.

It is really weird that modules in previously compiled kernel works and then recompile makes them nonworkable. Mysterious thing.

But for bcm4313 the wl driver is sometimes succesful, but needs those above conflicting drivers first unloaded with rmmod, then blacklisted with Bootmanager, add wl with Bootmanager and then reboot.

Also it is good to know that my previous kernel compile has that working property. I might try to build the kernel source again just for bcm4313 sake. Unfortunately the previous source has something nonworking in it.

I will upload Snow Puppy-008 probably tonight.

Snow Puppy-008 is uploaded. Some bugfixes and several additions.
3 wifi drivers and ndiswrapper is added. Also the old classic internet Wizard for ndiswrapper usage. Remasterpup2 by shinobar replaces the previous version. Snapmergepuppy is updated to the new experimental version for faster shutdown. You2pup is added. Xournal missing libs is fixed. VLC is reverted back to the better codecs support 1.0.6 version. Missing libs for it is fixed. Menu categorization is rearranged for some apps.
FoxitReader is removed.

PostPosted: Fri 18 Feb 2011, 19:24    Post subject: ati proprietary  

Latest ati radeon source from ati compiles and installs fine in snow puppy. I have a Radeon Mobility 3200 graphics card. The open source radeon looks good enough but the proprietary driver has the PowerPlay feature that can regulate the clock of the card when on battery.

You need to have the source sfs and the devx.sfs loaded but it built in under a minute on my machine and created the infamously fickle to create fglrx.ko module.

There are bits and pieces that install all over so just attaching the .ko file won't help anyone. There are executables that need to run to create the first /etc/X11/xrog.conf.

Just wanted to report that it builds.

Number 8 works good on my Acer D250. I have it first on the menu.lst so it always boot.

But the upgrade I did using the old Snow puppy 5 sfs save file did not include the Adobe Flash player.

Which such pet do you prefer to work together with Snow 8?

Sorry not clear that was from SNS. It is a mystery to me. I just plug them in and hope they work. Exchanging drivers is easy with the apt you have installed. I have tried loading drivers onto the kernel before but it wasn't a pretty sight. Here's hoping 008 is gtg.jim
