The one big problem:
I can not get on the internet with this new whatever device because Puppy does not see it

bigpup, we need to see your "lspci -n" output.

This was not a statement about me.
It was a general statement about posts I have read lately by people trying to run Puppy on new latest hardware.
Just trying to confirm to Playdayz the need for better driver support for new hardware.
Tempestuous, you are doing an excellent job of providing that support by the way!!

In general I see problems being posted, in the beginners section of the forum and they are using a device they just purchased. You can tell their problem is driver support for that new hardware.

But my orinoco-firmware package was packaged to be included in a remastered ISO; the firmware is stored as a tarball, ready to be uncompressed when the associated kernel module is loaded for the first time.
This is a legacy of older Puppies:- back when there was a separate "zdrv" file. As rerwin said, this policy is probably no longer of much value, and you might as well uncompress the orinoco firmware and locate it directly in /lib/firmware ...


Thanks tempestuous. That is what I did (uncompress the orinoco firmware and locate it directly in /lib/firmware). That should be OK then. I see now where I got confused. Thanks much for your help and patience.

Having installed Seamonkey, I used the above utility to remove Sylpheed. (I cannot check if it worked because pfind seems to be broken, see above post)

The utility listed bogofilter and gtk as dependencies for Sylpheen. However, after deleting Sylpheed (I assume it worked). I restarted the utility and looked for bogofilter. It wasn't there in the dropdown list? Should it be?

I also saw Bacon listed. Surely that would be in the dev sfs? (I haven't got any dev sfs on this machine). Again, without pfind I can't check to see if it's there!

By above utility, you mean Pfind? It does not do any good to remove Sylpheed (or any other program). They wills til be in the luci sfs so there is no savings in space. If youw ant to make it disappear, you can delete the /usr/share/applications/sylpheed.desktop file. You can also edit /usr/local/bin/defaultmail and comment out sylpheed and remove the comment before seamonkey if you install seamonkey, or add whatever mail program you install.

Bacon Recorder is present. The Bacon compiler is in the devx but there is a Bacon runtime in the sfs.

Pfind. I believe the problem is that you must click the box that says No Files Found - OK before anything else can happen.

If you do not refresh page online.
The other tabs do this:

News - Opens ///usr/share/doc/index.html

Tweaks - tries to go to ///usr/share/doc/index2.html (page not found error).

Got it. Lazy me.

Those are some wild backgrounds! Wow. Who made all those? futwerk, I see. But what the heck, how do I download them? It seems like that ought to be easy.

For some reason unknown I was unable to get a wifi connection using either SNS or Network Wizard after I had updated from luci265 to luci266 - I've loaded Frisbee from the built-in installer and this seems to have cured the problem (and also means I can disable "stay connected"). The problem seemed to maybe be that luci266 was trying to connect to other foreign wifi signals in my vicinity.

I'm seeing a strange entry for screenshotbrowser.sh in the Change Default Browser tool.

Cheers

Would this improve the enclosed Multimedia player experience?
Is this too big to be included. (in my case it would stop my PPM Xine to get this experience.)

Hope this helps

He said that in 520 there were no transport buttons. I am seeing transport buttons in 266.

Bigpup, The pup save resize looks good. Thanks for recommending it.

Sorry to be late to upload. The firstrun-1.8.4pet is the latest and the one built in the Wary-511-01q.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=58312

I am not sure it is compatible or not with luci.
You may need to edit /root/Startup/fullstart.

As for the HOSTNME variable as gcmartin pointed out, the problem is the ROX-Term do not read /etc/profile...
The urxvt reads /etc/profile.

# 24dec10 v1.5: avoid @euro.UTF-8, same language at the top of the list
# 29dec10 v1.6: detection of xvesa resolution
# 31dec10 : Do not translate tooltip-text "Choose main language"
# 4jan11 v1.7: read Xorg driver name from xorg.conf or from /var/log/Xorg.0.log
# : fix change_xrandr, CLOCKFLICKER, 'us' keymap near the top
# 12jan11 v1.8: no sandbox for Xvesa, Switching Xvesa to Xorg
# 21jan11 v1.8.1: leave 'changed' at status, extralang, fix was lang_check failed to change from pt_BR
# 30jan11 v1.8.2: avoid black screen at changing timezone, lang_chek for Puppy-4.2 and older
# 3feb11 v1.8.2: full list locale regardless fonts
