Hi RSH,

I think this is an amazing puppy, its base already so full featured, not to speak of all the extra sfs's and yet so lightweight..

Gruendlich und erstaunlich, while being 84 yrs old ???

Some remarks from a low profile wannabee user.

I think that even when I choose English I sometimes get german text. Not now so I cannot give examples apart from a few on the desktop muell verbinden und sichern. And found out that only after FN11 I get English.

As I say "not now", but on former startups I thought "well this is not handy for non-Germans". (I haven't yet done a "save session". so I don't remember when I thought this.) Besides being Dutch I understand some deutsch.

The usb, which contains the system, is not shown as "being mounted". Maybe this is because I have not yet saved a session ?


Hi Nancy!

Yes, maybe it is "gründlich und erstaunlich" but: please, please, please don't call me older -84- as i am -48- Very Happy Laughing Very Happy - however, that's funny.

To your problem about the "German" icons, saying f.e. "Konsole". This is because i have saved my personalize desktop icon settings using "menu>desktop>desktop settings>desksetup templates for desk icons".

At post No. 2 of this thread (this is the Info- & Update Center) i have set some links to solutions, tips, bugfixes, updates, statistics - to guide the users and get them easily informed. I have posted a reference to this post at post No.1. It seems most users just jump to the last post and did never read the first post again - where i have informed about this.

Never mind. Now i hope you are informed on that special feature of this thread and you will get all updates (1), bugfixes (1), informations (lots) etc. available.

Always when you are using LazY Puppy 5.2.8-4 without save file, the usb device will not be automatically mounted.

Greetings

RSH

I made the corrections to psnapshot
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=595913#595913

I also completely localized it so that screenshot browser
can show German.

The cutting or splitting of long mp3 files is quite tedious if you use
audacity or mhwaveedit. I download radio shows from the internet
and they are 2 hours long. When I leave Bacon Recorder on overnight
the files can be several hours long. So mp3splt is necessary for me.

Audacious works with mp3splt but I've found that I need a
clean empty Audacious playlist, otherwise the connection won't
be made between Audacious and mp3splt. Crying or Very sad

Ok, i understand. I do not use internet radio and so i could not imagine of such big mp3 files.

So this is the reason Audacious has to build in or did you mean it will fail?

I could just convert the mp3 files to wav with a script but that requires
a big hard drive which I currently have fortunately.

01smokey has recommended Streamripper to me.

Aqualung seems to have the same features but it doesn't look
as attractive.

Audacious doesn't need to be builtin. It only takes a few seconds to install.

Here's another suggestion...

To switch the keyboard layout have you tried fbxkb

Hi, RSH!
First I say I'm impressed by Your great work! It seems to be a more rich distri among the puppies...
But I got into lots of trouble installing it. So far it isn't stable, maybe through some faults I made.
After 6 or 7 attempts to install I succeeded this morning, writing a good menu.lst as it was recommended.
But then I recognized that system can't shut down. Don't know why. I pressed the power-button on my laptop few seconds and booted again.
While booting there came up 7 lines with "done" and "[backgrounded]".
Last line: Recognising media devices... optical input done

And then only
#

nothing happens.
What can I do? Try to install again (on hda)?

I installed again. First all was fine. Then again can't shut down.
Installing worked without writing initrd. The menu.lst and lazysave.2fs are in /boot/grub/.
How can I rebuild the shut-down?

Hi Dancer,
it would be interesting how you installed Lazy - Full, or Frugal.
Did you use the wizards?
Where did you install it (hardisk partition)?
Also your grub entry would help.
cheers

Dancer - I would use a frugal install. it is easier especially with all the custom sfs ackages of Lazy Puppy. Also there were shutdown problems with full installs. I recall this happens when some drive can't be properly unmounted (even if it is the "home" partition). If you are at the # prompt after reboot of full lazy, maybe try xwin to reenter the graphical desktop (x-session).

anyway - for frugal install from inside lazy or any other puppy:
1) make a directory lazy on sda1
2) click on the Lazy iso and copy (drag'n drop)
initrd.gz
lazy_528.sfs
vmlinuz

(yes, just 3 files) into this lazy directory

3) add the following text to your grub menu.lst:
Code:
title Lazy puppy frugal
  find --set-root --ignore-floppies /lazy/lazy_528.sfs
  kernel /lazy/vmlinuz
  initrd /lazy/initrd.gz


4) reboot and choose the Lazy frugal install

5) if it works you can also delete the files and folders of the full install on sda1 (with the exception of the lazy frugal folder and the grub folder)

Hi, Dan-cer.

I would recommend strongly to use LazY Puppy 5.2.8-4 only either fugal installed or in live mode (no install). In fact of several (a lot of) problems in the previous versions of lucid puppy 528 (which LazY Puppy is based on) i have had the focus on using LazY Puppy in live mode only - as i put this all together.

I personally do use my LazY Puppy on my home workstation (programming, graphics, internet etc) 100% in live mode (no install). On my music workstation i do use LazY Puppy frugal installed. I did never had any problems with rebooting the system.

Everything works just fine and i had never used my windows installation for the last 4 months (except testing the win installer of LazY Puppy).

Thank you very much. I hope you will use the frugal install to enjoy LazY Puppy for a long time. Do copy the extra sfs files into the same directory as lazy_528.sfs is saved. Then you are able to load the wanted sfs using the menu entry.

I got some more courage and tried to boot the life-cd on my 64-bit-PC with win7 on it. But the booting failed. That happened also with another distri a week ago.
Must I use a special 64-bit-Version of Puppy?

As far as i know, Lucid Puppy (basic OS of LazY Puppy) is a 32bit OS up to 3.5 GB. But i am a little confused about this fact, because

Isn't his one (AMD Athlon(tm) 64) a 64bit processor?

However, there are some 64bit Puppies available.
