No this is bugs.
- hotmail : average users don't know what headers are. Please change useragent.
- modify a file in ntfs : geany says "error saving file, operation not supported".
- csv : feature request.
- flv videos dont show image in gmplayer, only sound.
I found the solution with gmplayer -vo x11 file.flv
But puppy uses by default gmplayer -really-quiet -vo xv file.flv
- universal installer doesnt install grub.
- mouse scroll , this is bad design.
- keyboard language, why need X restart ?
There is a solution loadkmap < /usr/share/kmap/es.map
Where are kmap files ?
Kmaps files are in gz in /lib/keymaps ?
Found solution : gunzip /lib/keymaps/es.gz | loadkmap
something like that...
to be continued...

- empty dirs : why keep on having those ?
/etc/belocs
/etc/dbus-1
/etc/gftp
/etc/pam.d
/etc/simple_network_setup
and others...

- hosts.conf should be
Code:
order hosts, bind
multi off
nospoof on

See http://tldp.org/LDP/nag/node82.html
I tried multi on, but didnt work, so kept multi off.

- Disabling lock debugging due to kernel taint
Because of binary modules like nvidia...

- /etc/group : contains unused groups , like tape, webgroup ?

- /etc/profile should contain exported variables only like : export HISTSIZE=10
it contains exec xwin ?

- same for /root/.bashrc should only have things like
Code:
alias ll='ls -l'
PS1=whatever you want....
export HISTTIMEFORMAT="%Y/%m/%d_%T : "


These are not features request, these are unix standards.

Nice one, James C. When I moved last year, some things just had to go. With a tear in my eye, boxloads of P I, Cyrix and even K6-III were bid farewell along with their boards - all in GWO; probably reduced for their auric complement by now.
Your efforts will doubtless cheer little old ladies in Novo-Sibirsk, teens in the DRC and fellow Welsh-speaking Patagonians who will, generators permitting, be able to email you directly with their thanks!

Puppy are puppy and have not promised to be unix standard AFAIK?

Reading your complaints I get the notion you should make your own Linux or even Unix standard and link to it. Would love to join your forum and tell you what would be puppy standard there Smile

There isn't one, but just rename the 5.1.4 devx.

It seems I cannot modify some ntfs files because they are "compressed ntfs files" (files shown in blue). Not implemented in linux...

It is my impression we, as well as most distributions, are using NTFS-3G as the driver for the NTFS file system. I differentiate between NTFS-3G and Linux Kernel because they are two different Open Source projects.

The reason for my post is to communicate that it seems NTFS-3G supports compression. You can check out this link below

http://b.andre.pagesperso-orange.fr/compression.html

However, the approach I'd take on my own computer is decompress the files and use them that way. But such things as disk space may make this not so easy for you.

Good luck.

I'm surprised they are still having the problem.

It is and has been my thoughts that Microsoft as the owner of Hotmail deliberately messes things up for us.

To support this opinion notice as you did note that changing the User Agent 'fixes' it. The fix seems: They spoof you and you spoof them.

The vast majority of sites don't mess with you this way. And if they use the User Agent it is likely for your benefit. For example, rendering CSS properly.

I just don't see a bug on the Mozilla side of things. Even if there were, it would something for Mozilla to take up because Puppy simply uses their binaries or sometimes source.

PostPosted: Wed 31 Aug 2011, 12:01    Post subject: Wary Puppy 5.1.4.1
Subject description: pmount
 

I did a manual frugal install of 5.1.4.1

I think pmount is broken, when I run pmount from the terminal it gives
errors:

# pmount
can not set locale properly

(process:14929): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.
/usr/sbin/pmount: line 386: 14929 Terminated yaf-splash -bg orange -fg black -close never -fontsize large -text "$m_02"
#
I just had it update my 5.1.4 save file if that makes any difference.

Clicking on a drive in jwm mounts the drive but running pmount from
the terminal doesn't.

edit:I deleted the save file and rebooted 5.1.4.1, then checked pmount
and it worked.
So having a 5.1.4 save file updated by 5.1.4.1 didn't fix the pmount
problem but starting 5.1.4.1 with no save file and then creating one
in the normal way did cause pmount to work.
