This is conceivable but maybe you could explain yourself a bit better. Start with DUN, as we may have different understanding about it.
I also have a hard time seeing the conflation in my post. Could you elaborate?

Now regarding land fields, old hardware and puppy users, if there is some misunderstanding is not from my side.
What I could certainly be blamed foris not making clear enough that I do not advocate 4CPUs, 16GB RAM and 4 TB storage (actually find these machines ridiculous for puppy, but people can have fun anyway they like)

And back to the original point.
I have used TC and the likes and I do not like them. They certainly do not work well in old hardware because of their underline principles. Advocating making puppy "like these" is certainly not going to make it better for old machines.
What I suggest instead is customize puppy builds for your hardware after the first run (Gentoo is doing this for years). So pick the right kernel, get rid of extra stuff and work from there.
Given puppy's setup/pet versions, starting from a minimal environment and building up is not the way to go, I believe

Hopefully the above is clear enough and does not need a photo-ID

Back to Slacko now.

PostPosted: Fri 07 Oct 2011, 12:55    Post_subject: Gnuplot
Sub_title: function plotting program (made in 431, works in Lupu and Slacko)
 

I tested my old gnuplot package, and it seems to work well in slacko.
There is a slightly newer version of gnuplot in ppm (slackware-repo) but it has like 3 MB. This version has 1.4 MB (pet size is 880 KB).

Lost in translation. There's a certain shorthand.
When I write " Who are you...." It means you haven't edited your profile to show location and we don't know whether you're a developer, guru, coder, or regular clod like the majority of us. It doesn't mean: Tell us your name, address and where you work because we want to send you a Christmas card, or we will send the boys round.
When I say " ...like Tiny/SliTaz..." that's no endorsement, just noting the intentions of...
If you are a Spanish-speaking Mexican or a French-speaking Canadian, we love you, you are part of the family. That doesn't mean we love you or that we're related, but draw your own conclusions about your neighbours...
'conflation' is in the dictionary, try Google for DUN, it's a common acronym and of daily concern to somebody on this Forum less fortunate than YT.

For Testing - Compiled in Slacko
Audacious 2.5.4 for Slacko

ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko/audacious-2.5.4-slacko.pet
ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko/audacious_NLS-2.5.4-slacko.pet

There are currently 2 versions of Audacious. 2.5.4 is the version for gtk2. Audacious 3.0.3 is the version for gtk3. If they ever fix their web site I will try Audacious 3, but Audacious 2.5.4 is very good and stable. AFAIK Audacious 3 has no significant new features (I am thinking it is just the adaptation to gtk3.) The reason to wait for their website is that Audacious requires 3 extra libs that are linked on the web site.

The basic pet is nice and small, just 1.5MB--yes, I know there are smaller players, but I just like Audacious--it does what I need. Pmusic now has some features Audacious does not have, such as grabbing lyrics, etc., from the web. However, Pmusic cannot handle large (5,000+) playlists, which I need.

googled DUN and at least the first two pages had nothing computer related. your last couple of posts are off topic and sound condesending.

Thanks for the understanding.

I can not help it but wonder if we mean the same thing with 'DUN". The definition is far from clear but my understanding was Dial-Up Network users, for whom having as small iso and then trying to download the rest live, is a nightmare (BTW have you ever used TC/slitaz or you just flew through the intro page).

I'm also pretty clear on what conflation is and I still wait for you to point to the conflation in my post.

I can not help it but wonder, do your ever read what you write?

Pwidgets (one from Slacko .pets in ibibilo and also standard 2.3.5)

Upon installing the weather option to the ones that default on installation, it pushes the top-part of the CPU Graph under the calender.

Hi, playdayz:

Thank you for the Audacious 2.5 slacko pet. It is a very nice and efficient player.

I loaded it into Slacko 5.3.0.1 and it worked beautifully.

However, when I take the save file to a different computer, Audacious crashed.

1) I tried to launch Audacious, nothing happened.
2) I tried to launch again, it complained about another Audacious was already running.
3) I clicked cancel and started Audacious in a terminal. The error message was about the audacious.desktop file containing file extension for icon audacious.png (a very strange message).

Anyway, I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. This time it went further. However, as soon as I added some music to it, it crashed.

On the other computer, Audacious has still been working beautifully. I wonder if the (different) sound card had anything to do with it, although I highly doubt it.

In Slacko, there are not a whole lot of choices for good music player. There is no rhthymbox, banshee, etc. I did give Pmusic a try but it is not my player.

Thanks.
