Just for Fun

It boots for me and reboots with a save file. To be honest, I doubt that it has any real advantages to Lucid 5.2.8.005 or Three-Headed Dog, but who knows, it might work better for someone.

Super Lupu with the 3.0.25 kernel from Racy (at the same level of update as 5.2.8.005).

http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/sulu-001.iso
2d4f898bb26361959c95f698ce5dcf0c

It gives a modprobe error when first creating a save file--but it seems to work.


I burned sulu-001.iso to a dvd and booted it up.
I installed Xorg_High-1.1-Lucid.pet,kernel_src-3.0.25-patched.sfs,and
luci_devx_001.sfs (renamed to sulu_devx_001.sfs)
I compiled NVIDIA-Linux-x86-295.40.run

sh-4.1# glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
138376 frames in 5.0 seconds
138672 frames in 5.0 seconds
138516 frames in 5.0 seconds
sh-4.1#

I added a few pets, compiled smplayer and smtube.
I haven't made a save file yet so don't know how that will go but so
far so good.

Even if it's a silly PAE kernel, I'll do a little testing.Super Lupu live pfix=ram...no savefile yet.

Obvious problems first....... unable to download browser by clicking the "browse" icon..... "Sorry,your package is not found". Same for QuickPet. No problem downloading with the PPM though.

No modprobe error here when I created a save file on a usb flash drive.Everything proceeded normally.
Now I can experiment a little.....

I rebooted creating a 1.2 GB save file on a flash drive, it created the file
without problems and booted back to the desktop.
There is only 505 mb free in the save file now.

James C, Here is the fix for Quickpet and the Browser Installer. The file is /root/.quickpet/repos.conf. I got too fancy with the name sulu and Quickpet didn't know what to do with it. This is only necessary in Sulu.

They are in lupuplus with the update-3 package, but not in lupulibre. You can install patch-8 into lupulibre, though. I hope you and others will run with it awhile before playdayz adds it to the ISOs.

I am in the phase of my career where programming is so much fun I do it for nothing. We were warned in my initial class on the IBM System/360 that this could happen. Thanks for your and bigpup's enthusiastic comments.

re: Just for Fun - Super Lupu with the 3.0.25 kernel from Racy

NFS works fine with this build and the 3.0.25 kernel.
Which was not the case with the latest Racy build.

thanks

Upcoming Schedule

Now that I have finished playing with the 3.x kernel, next up will be an update version of Lupu Plus and Lupu Plus Libre that will include the amazing and impressive list of tweaks in rerwin's message above.


I'm confused.

Are all the fixes already in Lupu 528.005? If not, why is Lupu Plus and Lupu Plus Libre being updated in isolation.

Subject description: Package not propagated to new remaster.
 

playdayz,
I am concerned that the package you require to be installed upon first-boot of lupulibre will not be retained if the user makes a remaster of lupulibre and whatever else has been installed. But I think the solution is simple.

The package merely adds some files to /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/MIME-icons and /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/MIME-types. However, those subdirectories are remastered only from the "puppy" layer (the original lupu_528.sfs file), so the package files in the "pupsave" layer are ignored. The solution would seem to be for you to merge those two subdirectories into the /tmp/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ directory during your remaster to make lupulibre. Do that at the point where the remasterer lets you add files to the /tmp/root directory. That way, they become a permanent part of lupulibre and do not require an unusual measure to be taken by each installer of lupulibre. If those files would not impact the non-libre versions of lupu528, you might include them an all versions, for consistency.

Please consider this before making the next version of lupulibre. Thanks.
Richard

Yes, that is exactly it rerwin. I made Lupu Libre and then humblesoul noted that it could be improved by including the icons and run actions that are in the package you mention. So the next time I make Lupu Libre or Lupu Plus Libre they will be built-in. Thanks.

ICPUG, I do the updates on a revolving basis--and I just did lupu-528.005. Lupu Plus is next. As rerwin said in the notes to patch-3, it would be good for people who are using regular Lupu 5.2.8.005 to install and test that patch. Thanks.

you date yourself. my first was the 5150 living in Silicon Valley even took couple programming classes to find out I didn't have it. funny naming scheme IBM had the smaller number would take up a room.

would you say computer advances today that the mainframe 360 can be contained in a laptop today? it's hard to get a perspective.

installed rewin patch 8 to lupulibre. rebooted to desktop but no "two barks."

didn't have the "two barks" prior to patch 8, iirc may not have had on pfix=ram install of lupulibre.
