So far all seems OK.

Any link to something that gives details of the new stuff added via the update?

Thanks Sylvander, Scroll down about 20 lines or so in the link to see what is in the 002 update. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=70855 And if you updated from an earlier version than 5.2.8 you can scroll further down and read what is in 5.2.8.

Brown Mouse, I think that Hoover track disappears when you left-click another track.

Hi Playdayz. I've check the MD5 its OK. and other facets of the system seem OK.

But, in this LIve media operation, I am NOT getting same results. When I click the item showing in the playlist, nothing happens. I cannot get PMusic to play anything in the distro. If there's something you want me to try for you, PM me and I'll help..

Maybe this has something to do with something missing that would be available after a save to media and reboot. I'll give that a try and report back. Again, this is a Live media system. Not frugal or full.

gcmartin, Does it bark when it boots up?

What happens if you right-click an mp3 and choose Play with Gnome-mplayer?

This is a CD made from lupu-528.002M.iso?

528.002
frugal + save
This is not the M version

Quote:
To fix it, open /usr/share/applications/gnome-mplayer.desktop and find the line that says 'Exec=gnome-mplayer %U', delete the %U, and save.

OK this worked to eliminate the error message when starting Gnome Mplayer.
Quote:
Bigpup, You could try opening gnome-mplayer then Edit -> Preferences and changing the Video Output to x11, to see if it will play that DVD right, but then it probably won't do the menus right..

OK this fixed the DVD movie play.
However, I have original Lucid 528 with the multimedia 002 update test.
Gnome Mplayer in it has the Video Output set to XV and it works OK for playing DVD movie.
Also, it did not have the %U entry.

I can not say for sure I did not already have that version of Gnome Mplayer installed prior to doing the multimedia 002 update test.

Again my problem was with the 528.002
Not the M version

Thanks. I can fix the %U problem. I will double check the other.

installled 002M version pfix=ram to ext4. installed usual broadcom pet to connect eth1 with wifi. pmusic works showing the preinstalled item, clicking starts playback with album info.

removed %u from mplayer.desktop works. will continue testing next few days. thanks playdayz.

-------
multi-sound card wizard works with installed version 1.0.4.0 of mplayer. correctly identifying external speakers via HDMI connection and saves the settings with persistence through reboots.

in slacko above was a problem and required reverting to ver 1.0.2 of mplayer to work correctly.

playdayz well done!

1. Whoops, OK, now I'm finding the problems. Sad

2. Tried Pupsave Hot Backup and it appeared to work just fine. Very Happy
What a great addition!
Any detail available on its operation?
I liked the way I was able to make a folder somewhere, then use the program to save the pupsave there, which is an essential feature, and thank goodness it has been included. Cool

3. Can't get Alsamixer to run.
Here's what I get:
Code:
# alsamixer
cannot open mixer: Input/output error
#


4. Gnome Alsamixer produces an empty window.
Perhaps I just don't know what needs done next?

5. My speaker icon is missing from bottom right.
What do I need to run to put that there?

6. Here's what I get when I attempt to run retrovol?
Code:
# retrovol
retrovol: hcontrol.c:573: snd_hctl_load: Assertion `hctl->count == 0' failed.
Aborted
#


7. Probably no point in me being told how to fix these things at this point in time, because...
Lupu is my main OS, and I can't live without at least 1 fully functioning Lupu.
So I'll restore my previous Lupu-526, and [soon as I have time available] make a fresh lupusave on a Flash Drive, and experiment with that.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
OK, I've restored Lupu-526, and the cold sweat has worn off.

Oh I 've been lost in other things and missed that feature.
Sounds very interesting indeed. I do back up saves too seldom.

The reason that I am still using Snow 5 instead of later versions is
that I know how to use a manual saving of Youtube in Snow 5 and
have not learned the modern way of doing it. I simply fail to find
my way around. Yes pemasu and others have told us how to but
I am not on that level of using cli and getting how to make it work.

okay I give 002 M a short test now and get back and report.
Being as lazy as I am now I cheated and reused an old pupsave
from 528 "secure" so most likely them are different enough to not
work well together.
So I should say nothing further. Just now I am into small folding bikes.
You know those named Human Powered Vehicles. No motor on them.

Subject description: Micromac usb modem MMX310g
 

Hi,

@bigpup
@playdayz
Thank you for your response.

I Download http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/lupu-528.002_for_256MB.iso
and make a frugal installation.

I bootup puppy and then hot plug my wireless modem.
Modem detected on ttyUSB3. Configure wvdial and get connected.
No problem at all.
Thanks once again.

Goutam

Playdayz

Something else I found using Pmusic(on my setup).
When playing mp3's loaded from say (/my-documents),to remove a loaded file from the playlist,using right click and selecting 'Remove from playlist (mid-button)'doesn't seem to remove it..
I found that I had to use the 'Delete source button'and then answer'yes' at both prompts.This didn't appear to cause a problem.
However,what I found very alarming was,when I loaded mp3's to the playlist from a usb portable storage device,using the above method (Delete source button)literally deletes the files from the usb drive.

Sorry, I havent rebooted yet.

But, to answer your questions:
  1. gcmartin, Does it bark when it boots up?Yes, sound works fine everywhere.
  2. What happens if you right-click an mp3 and choose Play with Gnome-mplayer?It plays. and I can drag and drop MP3s to mplayer, as well.
  3. This is a CD made from lupu-528.002M.iso?Yes, same PC as reported earlier, with those reports


The LUPU Puppy 5.28 systems now has JRE and SeaMonkey .installed via PPM PETs.

But, PMusic-V2.2.1 is not behaving in LUPU002M Live media system that has not been rebooted from a save session.

Note on PMusic in your other Puppy 5.2.8 version:
The Lupu528 where the 002M update PET was applied is NOT exhibiting this bad behavior in its PMusic. V2.2.0. This system has NOT been rebooted either.

BTW on another note, your hostname approach works, too! ("logoff in restart")

Ah-Ha, I tried to slip 2.2.1 into the updated iso, better go back to 2.2.0, eh?

Pupsave Hot Backup is written by 2byte and here is the thread. http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=2135238237&t=49999

Sylvander, Thanks for testing. There are changes in the 002 update and iso that affect sound. If you do nay more testing you might try running ALSA Sound Wizard (under setup in the Menu).

Before jumping to that concluson, Iff you PM me with testing to perform for each of these 2 versions of Lupu528-002M (the complete one and the updated one), I will test them for you and report. (just recommend steps for me to follow for you)

Remember, these 2 live media systems have not been save-session rebooted, as of yet. But, for SAMBA (now installed and tested on each), Seamonkey, and JAVA apps, all seem fine.

Hope this helps
