I have found that I'm unable to mount a 4.7gb DVD-R containing photos in Puppy 5.25 and 5.20.


Does that machine also run Windows and if it does can it read the disc in it? Reason I ask is that my K6 2 machine has a Hitachi GD-5000 DVD-ROM, and it came out before the 4.7GB DVD-R standard was released and therefore can't read them.

Yes, that's the odd thing.Even without the disc being closed off as Minnesota suggested,the disc can be read in Win7 and also my Win xp setup on the same computer..

I just noticed that Puppy is #8 in Distrowatch,and a healthy #8, well ahead of #9. After the release of 5.2.5 I quit checking DW so this is a very pleasant surprise--I had just assumed we went back down to 9. This means Puppy has climbed from 10 to 8 in the last year. Everyone who has participated in Lucid has had a hand in that. And not only Lucid but Wary and Quirky as well. Congratulations to us all.

Oh, and I saw something else too. Congratulations to prit and runtt21.

Thanks for the new seamonkey 2.1.
I removed seamonkey 2.011 from my hd install and installed the new 2.1 version. Works great and very fast.

Hi guys. I don't feel up to going through this many pages of stuff lol

Am I the only one who has an issue typing on OpenBox unless my caps lock is on?
I mean, I'm very likely to install Xfce on here assuming it will will work, but it's still a little unnerving. The sole reason I picked OpenBox as my WM is I don't like JWM. I find it ugly. lol

ETA - Had the issue after about twenty minutes on Xfce 4.4. :\

When the disc is inserted,the desktop drive icon is present and identified as 'sr0' but when I click on it cant mount it.
The disc is multisession and was burnt using Nero in Win7.Could this be the reason??
Are there any other ways to go about mounting it?
Any help or ideas appreciated thank you.


It might be a firmware issue....may need updating?

AFAIK, unclosed discs can only be read in the same hardware that it was written in, but I don't think it's OS sensitive, I think its hardware related......but someone else may know different?

stu90,

Great find and easily as good as the BBC ticker if not better. Happy to report that it works with IceWM and Chromium-10.0.630.0. I configured the browser as “defaultbrowser” (without the quotes).
Thanks for the .pet

Disregard my post. It randomly started working.
I have no idea why though?

Could be an issue with the disk. Not sure.
Have you tried to mount it via Pmount?

Nero could be the cause of this.
If it is not a full retail version of Nero.
If it is a version of Nero, you got with your computer or by buying a CD/DVD burner, they will not give you a full version of Nero. It will be purposely limited on what it can do and what it will work on.
You would think they would make it burn media so it will work on anything, but I am not so sure.
I got a copy of Nero with a DVD burner drive.
Tried to use it on another computer with a different DVD burner drive.
Nero would not work at all.
Somehow it was linked to the DVD burner drive it was bundled with.

Stu90 with help from L18L,
Have come up with a GUI for setting up the console.
Has settings for everything.
Can make it transparent too.

Hi Aitch

I'm quite sure it's not a hardware issue now.

bigpup

It's a full version of Nero
I just mounted the same disc in PCLinuxOS Gnome without a problem and without closing the disc so I'm presuming it's a Puppy issue.


DM was on fire!

Yes ,I tried pmount many times without success.

I am not sure and this is a long shot, but on my newest machine I could not boot a standard Puppy Live-CD. Everything worked fine otherwise but I just couldn't boot the Puppy CD. That was perplexing, but on a whim I rearranged the cables to my disks and bingo, it worked. By rearrange the cable, they were SATA hard disks and a PATA DVD-Rom--I can't remember exactly, but I plugged the disks into different connectors--there ar elike 6 SATA connectors on the motherboard. Oh shoot, maybe I changed the jumper on the back of the DVD drive. Sorry, it was a while back. But these are the basics.

Urxvtset is being tweaked like mad by stu90 and L18L.
May want to hold off and let the dust settle before adding to PPM.

The latest version 0.4 of Urxvtset
Changes settings for the console on the desktop.
