Thanks tazoc.
I have downloaded the big KDE.
Will try it as soon as I have a bit of time.
Then I'll have amarok also then.

I've been trying to update Opera from 'Lighthouse Update 04' to version 11.01 and on every occasion I see this,'The download failed sha1sum verification.Would you like to remove it and try downloading a fresh copy'?.

*Edit

I located the Opera 11.01 .pet in /tmp/root/lhp-update,clicked on it and it is now successfully installed. Smile

Hi Tazoc,

Another challenge:

Jaak Ristioja wrote:
The BibleTime team is proud to announce the immediate availability of
BibleTime version 2.8.1, which is the first bugfix release in the stable
2.8 series of BibleTime.

All users of BibleTime are encouraged to upgrade, including users of the
BibleTime version 2.7 series.

Notable changes since 2.8.0:
* Fixed a bug which caused many works to be incorrectly categorized
* Fixed a Bookshelf Manager crash caused by installation sources
which provide invalid data
* Several build system fixes for Mac OS X and Linux
Above announcement is for info only. The linux version has not been released.
Cheers,
Jim

I have started getting network connection problems at boot ,ie,no connection and the following error message.

Error
Failed to raise interface eth0.
Failed command was:ifconfig eth0up
Error returning was:
Ifconfigisocsifflags:canonot allocate memory.

It wont reconnect from Network Wizard either.
In some cases a reboot does sort it out but it then reoccurs.

Any help with a fix would be appreciated.

Hi Brown Mouse,
Sometimes a router and DSL/Cable modem needs to be power cycled, though it sounds like something else is amiss. I'm assuming your Internet connection is wired, so it should persist on reboot.

I would boot from the Lighthouse CD and press F2 at the boot menu. Near the RH side, bottom one of the options is Memtest86+ diagnostic. Type memtest at the boot prompt and run it for 30 min or so. If that finds no errors, reboot with puppy pfix=fsck to check for file system errors. (For an NTFS or Fat partition, run chkdsk in Windows.) If the problems continue, boot with puppy pfix=ram back up your save file and shutdown, creating a new one.

Or maybe Lighthouse just isn't right for your hardware. Maybe try it on another machine, or another Puppy variant on the same machine.

Hope that helps,
TazOC

Hi tazoc
Thank you for the fast response.
Yes,I do use a wired internet connection and also have several other Puppy's running.
I'll certainly try your suggestions asap.I don't have an explanation for it and it's been running fine for weeks without a hitch.
I installed the Marina sfs and kde4 recently and they have caused no problems either so I'm fairly certain my hardware is up for it.

PostPosted: Wed 16 Feb 2011, 03:12    Post_subject: SFS LiveDVD  

This is some good news of an experience I had with Lighthouse. Using @TazOC LHPUP in LiveDVD mode, he has made his distro expandable via a "boot-time" process he created. This process allowed me, for example, to add SFS files to the root of the Multi-session DVD and have them incorporated into the system at boot time. I simply choose the SFSs I want included, add them to the DVD's root, and boot. The PUP boot process will ask if I want to install the listed SFSs, and I can pick and choose which SFSs I want in my PUP system at desktop.

The only issue that I found which I was able to easily overcome was on boot of this Mariner LIveDVD, when it asks me to confirm the SFSs I was to boot, I did NOT SEE my SAMBA SFS in the list. Using the option he's made available to rescan the SFSs, it did find my SFS, which were in the root on the DVD, and it booted with my having the functionality of the SFS when the system gets to deskop.

I found this rewarding because now, my LiveDVD distro system.affords me the advantages of both PETs/SFSs with SFSs being selectable based upon my desktop needs.

Thanks @TazOC for making LightHouse the most flexible LiveDVD system yet, simply, because of the selectablity incorporated at boot-time.

Hope this helps anyone.

Sub_title: faster browsing
 

@Tazoc,
I recommend including the Firefox 4.0 beta 11 as a LHP update.
14 Mb tar.bz2, 28 Mb uncompressed.
Much quicker than 3.6.13.
Faster Javascript.
I've been running it for several days with no issues.
It starts and runs so fast it startled me.
I feel the need for speed.

Thanks for a great OS! Question~How do I get the sound settings to "stick"? Have logged out and set alsaconf multiple times, but sound simply dies or mutes after a minute or so (on it's own). Using a cmipci PCI surround sound 5.1 card.

Tazoc,

Spectacular LHP !
Thank you for the remarkable effort,

Obviously you are a seasoned veteran software engineer.

You included LIbreOffice, PCMan-filer, Gimp, Firefox,
and loads of help with scripts ! Best Selection. I will find Audacity.

I was very surprised at the complete editor you provided for wBAR.
I had worked with something similar in FoxPro (Windows)
and the need for a semi-visual editor was obvious. Good work!

What more could an old man wish for !
I put LHP_502-G, Ubuntu 10.4, & Knoppix 6.4 MultiBooting on the HD,
and have been having a really good time.

Next adjustment is to find out where Kennewick is on the world map.
Then change it to Memphis, TN. Wink

I would first check all of the channels in Retrovol (Menu | Multimedia | Mixers) and make sure that Master, PCM, Front and Surround are un-muted and turned up, (and IEC958 if that is connected.) Then try the Multiple Sound Card wizard in Menu | Setup | Wizards.

If the sound works at first, note if any particular apps are running when the sound drops off.

Also check that the kernel module snd-cmipci is loaded:
Code:
lsmod | grep cmi
modprobe snd-cmipci
modinfo snd-cmipci
I found this parm: enable:Enable C-Media PCI soundcard. (array of bool)
so maybe boot with snd-cmipci.enable=1 Question on the kernel line. But first check the kernel log with:
Code:
cat /var/log/messages | grep cmipci
Hope that helps,
TazOC

Check out BibleAnalyzer and theWord, both work great in LHP.

Cheers,

Running great on an EeePC 900A via Unetbootin onto a 4 Gig flash drive. Using eight .sfs files (including KDE!) and a 1 Gig save file. Sound (maybe just a tad on the low side-as with most Puppies), wi-fi, video (using x-org high), and Processor cycling, as well as battery detection all working as expected!
Thank you VERY MUCH for this Puppy!

Question~Would the Canon mp-250 printer drivers (.pets) for Puppy/Lupu/Quirky work with this OS, anyone know?

PostPosted: Tue 01 Mar 2011, 03:42    Post_subject: PET vs SFS  

Can someone explain, simply, why a PET would be preferred or why a SFS would be preferred for a service that is to be used in LIveDVD and will survive over a reboot (session-save)?

Thanks in advance
