Hi Chris, thanks for the info.
I uploaded the firefox-4.0.1-retro525.pet and the download link is:

http://www.datafilehost.com/download-3681f4de.html

After installing the pet run fixmenus in the terminal and the proper firefox entry will show up in the internet menu.

The pet works in the regular lucid 525 too.

I made a firefox-4.0.1-retro525 pet, I followed the instructions playdayz gave in the howto thread, except not for any specific processor.
It's 14mb and too big to upload unless you have another way that I can get it to you?


Thanks for the pet. Smile

Now mirrored on smokey01 and link added to first post.

PostPosted: Sun 15 May 2011, 06:44    Post subject: Some programs quit without message on K6 machine  

Hi,

There are some problems with my old K6 retro machine:

Gparted, Write, Skype quit without messages.
Country localization for keyboard does not work.

The question is: May I use the Instant Update 001 for this retro release ?

Regards
Svgt

Last question first, I'm running 3 installs of Lucid Retro and Instant Update 001 appears to be working correctly here on all three.

Those old K6 boxes have been somewhat problematic.See playdayz's post here
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=522645#522645

I've done a little testing on my old K6-2 box and the K6pack and the e2fsprogs package got both Abiword and GParted working while running live pfix=ram.

PostPosted: Sun 15 May 2011, 21:17    Post subject: No gui  

I tried Lucid 525 Retro-2.6.30.5. MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) motherboard, i7 2600k, Nvidia GTX 460 8 gig ram

I had to use pfix=ram to get it to boot. Load failed @ x. Tried probe: 800x and 1024x.
Tried Choose: Nvidia1024x, and vesa 800x and 1024x.
Used the vesa option also no changes.

My stuff too new for a retro package? Ah well it's not like the kennel isn't full here.Smile

Oh yea, for comparison I can run Quirky, lupu525, Fatdog64, wary. I haven't tried any older versions on this machine.

Edit: Forgot to add md5sum matched on download and burn.

Hmmmmm.Possible I guess.

I just booted Lucid Retro,live pfix-ram on my quad-core which is probably a little older and I'm posting from it now.I just chose "probe" and picked the resolution(1360x768).


Sun 15 May 2011 Operating System: Lucid Puppy-525 Linux 2.6.30.5
d.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C61 [GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a] (rev a2)
oem: NVIDIA product: MCP61 - mcp61-86 Chip Rev

X Server: Xorg Driver: nv
X.Org version: 1.7.6
dimensions: 1360x768 pixels (411x232 millimeters)
depth of root window: 24 planes


AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 620 Processor
Core 0: 2611 1: 2611 2: 2611 3: 2611 MHz

...the above also recorded at '/tmp/root/report-video-glx'.

It's possible that your hardware is too new, luckily there are plenty of different pups to try.

OK. I tried it on a Toshiba laptop and all programs worked, all hardware was detected properly even a troublesome Realtek wireless chip that didn't even work in Vista which came on the machine.

Just for the fun of it I booted puppy-4.1.1-k2.6.25.16-seamonkey on the newer machine and it worked, not everything but it works. Rules out the tenuous too new theory.

James C ,

Any plans to make some graphics drivers pets for this kernel, so you are given some choices in Quickpet-> drivers.
Nothing in that tab does anything except you can download and install Xorg-High driver.
All the others need compiled for the 2.6.30.5 kernel.

Hi James C,
I see from the screenshot in the first post, that the kernel is 2.6.30.5 (i686). Does that mean it can't run on a pentium PII or PIII?

Lucid Retro has the kernel and all the drivers from Puppy 431 so it should run on fairly old hardware. My main test box is a 733 mhz P3 and I've successfully tested on an old 433 mhz Celeron box.
Because of the extra dialup modem drivers Lucid Retro is a bit larger than regular Lucid (or 431) so it needs more than 256 mb of ram to load totally into ram and free up the optical drive.
HTH.

Which repositories in the Puppy Packet Manager can be used for packet download? Are there issues with any packages in the puppy-lucid section because of the kernel change? Do we have to use spesific packages for the retro Lupu?

I have never really understood how all packages in all repositories in the PPM are backward compatible with a newer puppy, I don't know if that is a Linux policy matter? If all are not compatible, why are they listed?

What about the 'Extras for Puppy 4.3 with the 2.6.30.5 kernel', can those packages be used as is, or do they need some modifications?

Can I use the Firefox-3.6.6-Lucid from the puppy-lucid repository, or are there other more suited 3.6 versions?

I know these are newbie-questions, earlier I have just downloaded with PPM, and used what I found without thinking (yeah, yeah, I admit), and I have never had any problem with ditching a package that didn't work as intended!

Tallboy.
