That's right, I left off the 2.2

Thanks for the confirmation.

I was thinking off putting it outside the savefile.

Any interest?

I did a '# xset version' in terminal and got this so I take it if I type in '-dpms' that will disable the no-blanking yes? If yes, how do you turn it back on? and... get it into a menu-entry? I'm not a programmer pemasu so if it's possible, someone else will have to do it that knows how!!!!!

'thanks'

Ok sszindian, here it is by special request.

If you run the attached .PET it will create two entries in Desktop Menu, Turn screen saver on and off.

When you click on Turn screen saver off, your screen saver will be disabled.

When you click on Turn screen saver on, your screen saver will be activated again to the default setting of 600 seconds delay.

I tested it live both in JWM and OpenBox on Lupu-525 and it worked fine here.

Good luck.

gparted 8.0 installed and only ext2,3,4,fat16,fat32,ntfs, linuxswap available to format a partition. No resier4, resierfs, etc offered. But does recognize resierfs partition. added gparted 8.1 with same results.
To get gparted working with reiserfs, you need reiserfsprogs

I use a partition formatted with reiserfs since about 2 weeks with Puppy. No problems so far (lupu-525).

Found a nice little menu application last night, myGTKmenu - an easy way to clean up the default desktop layout but keep all the big icons in a easy to reach menu?
Although menu file/s needs manually setting up it is pretty straight forward and will launch a menu from a desktop icon or fbpanel etc and you can have as many different custom menus as you like.

use it like this:
/path/to/mygtkmenu/executable /path/to/my/menufile

Trio had already done something similar which pemasu has used in MidnightSun03. A truly great Puppy.

smokey01:

Over in-

Additional Software (PETs, n' stuff) / Utilities

I created my first-pet-ever-

Cloud Computing For Every Puppy
A simple .pet allows Cloud for all Puppy Versions

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=69192

I know your (and some others) feelings on cloud computing but, please give it a try on this 26x puppy... there is a cloud program in the menu already setup called 'Converter' I believe it may be of interest to you! I used it last night to convert an MP4 to a FLV and it is just fantastic for something that is free and doesn't take up any space on your computer! ttuuxxx uses it and even has it in his signature-file.

I wish playdayz would consider this .pet for the PPM, I'm sure a lot of puppy's would make good use of it and it's a good introduction for those that might want to dabble with the Cloud, without altering their current puppy. it's only about 93K in size. I also have a Cloud 'Browser' listed in it in that lets you travel the Internet and nobody knows who you are or where you come from!

'Thanks'

Luci-263 is now posted in the first message of this thread. This is the 3rd development release.

Please boot luci-263 with 'puppy pfix=ram' on a CD, or with 'pfix=ram' as boot option in the grub menu.lst, or rename or delete any lucisave.2fs or 3fs on your disk.

There are some fine looking utilities that still are not included. For luci-263 the main goal was to get the significant upgrades from rerwin in order.

Hey rhadon, reiserfsprogs is rather large, which is why it has not been included--that and it is also rather rare. It should go into PPM however--but I am swamped at the moment Wink Thanks.

I did a manual frugal install of 263 and did all the same stuff that I
did with 262 regarding devx,kernel source, and nvidia driver +
compiled umplayer (extra stereo plugin is nice).

Jesse's fix -> http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=536524#536524

This is something I *really* need help with: the fail to boot from usb with no drives present. I don't understand Jesse's fix--it seems to me we would want to know why there is a bad value in the referenced file in the first place--but....


Not sure why you can't implement this; if I managed it, you sure should be able! Laughing If you want to know the whys and wherefores of it I can't help you. I only know it works. Please put it in...

From the thread with Jesse's fix I gather there might be two problems--one with the no drive bug and another with the syslinux problem in 5.2.5 that *should* be fixed in luci-262.


Yes, two boot problems. I have verified your new syslinux (or isolinux, or ldlinux, or whatever the heck it is) has fixed my problem with booting my Intel D510MO from a flash drive. Now it gets stuck booting, on the missing hard drive bug, but Jesse's fix should take care of that. Only thing I did differently was that I left the flash drive vfat rather than ext2 (as I had used previously), but that probably has nothing to do with the syslinux problem.

Sorry to say, I noticed that the menu bug is back. At least I infer that because you have to do Menu>Filesystem>File Managers>Rox-Filer to get Rox! That subsubmenu has a single entry, and the menu files usually call for more than that to generate another menu level. I tried just running "fixmenus" but that didn't help. The 525 bug thread has the fix for the menu bug, or at least the pointer to the fix.

BTW, have you done anything with "pfix=fsck" not working for encrypted pupsaves? It's never been working since day 1 and it should be an easy fix. Just a couple of modprobes and an losetup. As long as you need to mess with initrd.gz...

I'm assuming that you would need a new woof build to pick up this patch from BK.
