bigpup,
The case where you do not use puppy with the parameter is in a temporary edit of the menu.lst entry of the kernel line.
I realize that puppy pfix=ram should be used when booting from CD.

I figured you knew what you were doing, but not knowing how you booted, I would mention the obvious. It is never the easy answer! Wink

I have seen times when install programs seem to be seeing old deleted files and using them. Or, somehow the old deleted files cause corruption of a similar named file when installing. Deleting a file only deletes the name, but the data is still there, just not identified. The data should be able to be written over. Key word should.

I also remember a story I read, of an interview, with one of the people who are credited with inventing the modern computer.
They asked, "Why have a reset switch?"
The answer, "That was the easy fix when the thing looked up all the time".

Here's an improved screenshot taking GUI. Smile

This one shows a progress bar and works with either rgbPaint, mtPaint or scrot.

Code:
#!/bin/sh

# the base arguments for Yad
YAD_BASE_ARGS="--title=Screenshot --window-icon=/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/x24.png --image=/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/x24.png"

# the maximum time to wait before the screenshot is taken
MAX_PAUSE=120

# the default time to wait before the screenshot is taken
DEFAULT_PAUSE=10

# the minimum number of seconds to wait that requires a progress bar
MIN_BAR_SECONDS=5

# let the user choose the number of seconds to wait before the screenshot is taken
seconds="$(yad $YAD_BASE_ARGS --scale --value=$DEFAULT_PAUSE --max-value=$MAX_PAUSE --mark='10 seconds:10' --mark='30 seconds:30' --mark='1 minute:60' --mark='2 minutes:120' --text='Choose the number of seconds to wait before the screenshot is taken.')"
[ $? -ne 0 ] && exit 0

# pause for the chosen interval
if [ $MIN_BAR_SECONDS -le $seconds ]
then
   (for i in `seq $seconds`
   do
      echo "$i * 100 / $seconds" | bc
      sleep 1
   done) | yad $YAD_BASE_ARGS --text="Pausing for $seconds seconds ... " --progress --auto-close
else
   sleep $seconds
fi

# check whether mtPaint or rgbPaint is present
for i in mtpaint rgbpaint
do
   if [ -n "$(which $i)" ]
   then
      $i -s &
      exit 0
   fi
done

# otherwise, try scrot
if [ -n "$(which scrot)" ]
then
   file="$(mktemp -u).png"
   scrot -q 100 $file
   defaultimageeditor $file
   rm -f $file
   exit 0
else
   yad $YAD_BASE_ARGS --button=gtk-ok:0 --text="Error: could not capture the screen; install either mtPaint, rgbPaint or scrot."
fi

This is one solution.

Dave, just so you know, I've figured out my problem with the expired or not yet valid security certificates: the date on my computer was set wrong and it thought I was years in the past! Once I fixed the date and time, all of these problems vanished.

In your picture it does say current time is 06/01/2004 05:24 AM.

Nah, just a 'feature' of lucid that's been reverted, gets back to that PDEV1 variable.

I see you got Pmusic (hopefully 2.2.2), but please also include pfilesearch 1.28 which makes Pmusic work better.


Thank you
Sigmund


Yes, the deltas do have pmusic-2.2.2. (just caught it as I was building Laughing )

Thanks for the tip on new pfilesearch.

I don't know how to post the result.

But to answer your questions:

Present resolution is 1680x1050

Range is from 1680x1050 down to 640x480

I'm trying to change it using xorgwizard. How else to do it. Never occurred to me that xorgwizard wouldn't do it. I'll have a look at xorg.conf.

I'd like to try 1280x800


gerry.. have you tried the video settings from menu >> setup >> Personalize - Settings? There should be offered various resolutions in the pulldown list on the right. It works on my r51 Thinkpad with Radeon graphics.

Newer versions of Puppy use Barry's "quicksetup" (very similar) but if you have standard Slacko 5.3 the Personalize settings should work.

Small insignificant bug. xine-lib from PPM reports missing libavcodec.52. It still runs and will play DVD's fine, but most video will not play. There is a new xine-lib-1.1.20 that I compiled and most video will then play, but still not as many video formats as mplayer.

Ok, there is a pet in my post about guvcview that contains libavcodec.52 without upsetting ffmpeg. I'll fix the database entry, also that typo which states it requires 'xinelib' (should be xine-lib).

A future version of Slacko may abandon mplayer in the default iso as Xine is much better, just need to sort the codecs which are dependent on ffmpeg, xine-lib in PPM was compiled against ffmpeg-0.6.1.

APPENDIX: Xine plays DVD's much better on my IBM thinkpad r51

01micko, I was hopeful this new xine-lib would be as good as current mplayer but fails on sound on rm video, fails on sorenson2cbr mov video, fails with bad sound on 3gp video, but that was with a straight vanilla compile (in Slacko 5.3). xine was the first Linux program that impressed me so I still like it. I have a test suite of videos if you want a tester.

Here it is complete if anyone wants to play.

http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/xine-lib-1.1.20-slacko-complete.pet

Regardless of the video playback xine is still good for DVD's as it is in PPM without worrying about libavcodec..

Here are 3 nice skins for xine http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/xine-skins-3pd.pet

Ditto Wink

<OT>
Xine was one of the first compiles I ever did. Back in the old Mandrake Linux 9.0 days (circa 2002) DVD playing was not set up well. Everything was pretty much FOSS and as we know most DVDs use cvs(?) proprietary encryption to beat ( Laughing ) piracy.
IIRC I had to compile ogle backend, get the libs from Mandrake non-free, compile the nvidia driver, compile Xine! Man, the effort was worth it! It was way more satisfying than watching a DVD in windows with power-dvd, and WMP (at that time, may have improved?) was real garbage.

Subject description: vlc-1.1.12
 

I made a vlc-1.1.12 pet in slacko 5.3.0.2.

It needs to have the qt-everywhere-opensource-scr-4.7.3-i686 QT
configuration installed from the puppy-slacko repository in puppy
package manager or it won't work.

The download link for vlc is:
