CatDude,

Indeed, your pet has fixed the issue with ice_config.sh. The menuitem for it can be re-enabled with Pmenu.
Fantastic work, CatDude! Thanks very much. Smile

Hi Tman, just checking to see if you were still going to do a final release for this. I noticed in Saluki postings that you were going to be scaling back. If you are not, could you please let us know? Thanks for all your contributions to Puppy and all your hard work. Thanks, Rob

Hi Rob and all,

Yes, I will wrap things up with Solidpup and then divert my full attention to my new project. I will see if I can work on it some more this weekend.

I am not really leaving Puppy, just I won't have as much free time for it as I used to.

Subject description: best of the smaller derivatives I tried so far
 

Tman, this late arrival and fan of your work will miss you already!

I may see if your other project works on my IBM T41 lappy but the
inverter or something vid-wise is hooped and although I can use ext.
monitor I find it annoying to crane my head when using it, and havent
been playing on it,. Whichever comes first - patience, repair or
replacement, I will let you know if Saluki works for me - I love the
logo!! Very classy, as much else I have seen from you.

Ok ..I started with a Toshiba Satelite 490cdt - 64mb ram, 3.4G hd,
(incl.512M Linux swap) a buggy S3 2mb vid card, which I loved due to
how solidly it is built -has the dock, and ext. floppy.. My pet project was
getting Puppy on it - ran most versions tried- some slow, but they go!
But the memory and vid card were hurting me.

I just found a 4060XCDT for $20, hoped I could add memory from the
other but the chip was dead- so this lil rescue is a Pll 233 w/64mb
XP bloating 3.5 of the 6G hd, using 512mb Linux swap, Trident 2MB
vid. card. 5.28 works great actually, but too big so too slow, and I
haven't found a cutdown version yet so looked around.

Compared to the other lite pups I have tried - SolidPup is the best
(Note to those of us with old old dogs: I need to use PLoP to boot
from USB with this bios, and add to my config file the " pfix=nocopy
pmedia=cd" to a) boot from USB and b) load the savefile, but only
have nosmp from frugal without issue) I may wipe everything soon
and try a full install to see if it speeds up FF or SM, but it zips very
well w/Dillo.

X detects video cleanly @ 1024x768 16 Bit. Country settings work
and are persistant, and has the locale files needed.

Network settings are not persistant, but are retained in IC Wizard
so I need to scan for my network each time at home to get connected
but my LinksysW54GUSB was detected and rt73usb loaded by default.
Funny thing, I took it into work to show off Puppy on this, booted w/
savefile, found that IC Wizard auto detected and connect to the only
no-password!!wireless connection in the bldg..yeah for me, but shame
on them!!

One thing I liked was the way conky was setup in Akita. I miss that in
Solid, but I use Htop for the moment, I will look into what I can do later
Unlike Akita, in Solid and Warytiny I have sound on 1st boot. Much faster
than Snow or Ice Pup but still appealing..

I was hoping for a sm. flash capable browser, FF SM are far too slow, SM
kills me w/error popups too, Firepup/FDog are too old for YT. Midori/flash
is also broken in the other wary based pups, and I think the 420 based
ones too. It seemed fast until it hung somewhere.. I heard Arora is good.
I updated the repos, but no love, I will poke around ibiblio etc. for pets
but if no luck will stick w/Dillo actually flies esp. compared to SM and FF
and is much prettier than the text based browsers, but I can't log in to
Hotmail (forget the error -no flash or java maybe). Sorry doubt I will
ever want to print from this beast, so not sure but think it would work
just fine if I did..

All in all SolidPup made this POS laptop run very well, I thank you
for your hard work, and sharing of your time. I am happily posting
from it right now Smile Will let you know about Saluki in the future.

Take care!

Thanks charbaby66 for the nice letter Smile
I helped get Saluki going but it is mostly Jemimah's work.

I have uploaded SolidPup 5.1.1-Final. A lighter 97MB version with Tint2 panel is also available.

I will still be around in the puppy forum, but I don't intend to make any new pups for a long time and these are the last versions to be based on Wary 5.1.1.

One day we both might be able to use woof2 Wink

Saluki is emerging into something unique
as Jemimah develops her unique style
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Saluki

You did good, it is the Puppy way . . .

Hope your influence continues.
Maybe some new 'SolidPup 2' will be a derivative of the completed Saluki . . . who knows Smile

Fare thee Well

Yes, I haven't mastered woof2 yet; I have only used woof (1) so far.
Some may be thinking something along the lines of Confused and Rolling Eyes. What can I say? Sorry, the tutorial will have to wait.

Recently, I discovered that after the last time I modified my Firefox packages, Flash-chess would no longer run with it, whereas it would run fine in Seamonkey.
So I had to rethink how to package it differently while still trying to keep Firefox compatible with many versions of Puppy. The changes I have made can be found -> here and the pets and sfs can be found in the first page of the same thread.

Also my latest Firefox pet can also be downloaded with GetPackage.
It worked for me in Dpup, Lucid, Slacko and Wary/Racy and should work in other versions of Puppy as long as they don't have any other missing dependencies.

If I remember correctly, newer versions of Firefox requires a newer flashplayer-plugin. A pet is available -> here
Also, if you want a flashplayer downloader script, Shinobar's version is good. The thread for it is ->here
