Billtoo. Yup. I didnt include any Hauppage firmwares. I even didnt know what firmwares they are. But now I know.
Here is first set to test. If these dont work, I hunt next version for testing. Install the pet, it installs the firmwares for Hauppage to the /lib/firmware.

It is same with most dvb-t tuners. Most chips needs the spesific firmware for it also. With dmesg in console you can easily see if the initialization has succeeded or not after you put stick in.

This is before placing the needed firmware to the /lib/firmware:
[ 6351.429069] Afatech DVB-T 2: Fixing fullspeed to highspeed interval: 16 -> 8
[ 6351.429454] input: Afatech DVB-T 2 as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.4/1-1.4:1.1/input/input14

[ 6351.952844] dvb_usb_af9015: probe of 1-1.4:1.0 failed with error -2

And this is after placing the firmware to the /lib/firmware:
[ 6515.056744] dvb-usb: found a 'Afatech AF9015 DVB-T USB2.0 stick' in cold state, will try to load a firmware
[ 6515.064151] dvb-usb: downloading firmware from file 'dvb-usb-af9015.fw'

The firmware pet did it Smile

Thanks, that's awesome.

This is the 150 card, don't know if the firmware would be the same for the 250.
I'm going to need a splitter and another length of cable for the other pc.

Thank you of the feedback !

Hi pemasu,
Thanks for the VLC 2.01 works great with my old usb twinhan DVB (driver included in kernel). I'll compile for my Sandberg-Mini DVB at the weekend.

View, record, play - all working (still using my old scripts Very Happy )

xspf format works in the playlist (their was a problem in a previous version)

thanks again

DC

Hi,
I installed icewm-1.3.7-slacko-i686.pet and
Icewm-themes-1.2.26-Lucid.pet.
That look is the liQuid theme for ice window manager, it's one of many
available once you've installed the themes pet.
Both pets are available in the extra software section (desktop page 2)
of the forum.

DC. Thank you of the feedback. About matroska.
I have succesfully included mkv demuxer to the build. I checked that it is there.
Quote:
# vlc -vvv --list|grep mkv
mkv Matroska stream demuxer

Also from ./configure I copied following:
checking matroska/KaxVersion.h usability... yes
checking matroska/KaxVersion.h presence... yes
checking for matroska/KaxVersion.h... yes
checking for libmatroska version >= 1.0.0... yes
checking matroska/KaxAttachments.h usability... yes
checking matroska/KaxAttachments.h presence... yes
checking for matroska/KaxAttachments.h... yes
Code:
vlc /mnt/sda5/PuppyApps/matroska/test7.mkv
,,,,mkv demux error: cannot find KaxSegment or missing mandatory KaxInfo

I googled and I found one quite credible explanation. The compiler in squeeze might be too old and mkv demuxer compile will be broken...that was one found reason when the mkv demuxer has been included and still none of mkv files does not play.

Well it seems to use a too old compiler so basically this packages are broken for mkv. I'll report that.


If too old compiler is the reason...then there isnt much I can do. Shame if it is so. By the way...when I reported success, about mkv in my announcement post....it seems that I dont have mkv association to the defaultmediaplayer...and the file I tested played in gnome-mplayer. I flipped so quickly through different formats that I didnt notice it, lol. Gnome-mplayer player played 6 out of 8 mkv test files. Files 4 and 7 didnt play.

Addendum to the Billtoo`s post. Tman has packaged IceWM for dpup.

Hi pemasu,

A question for my curiosity. How/why can mplayer play mkv and not VLC?

Don't they/Can't they use the same libraries/codec/demuxer etc?

When I compiled latest mplayer2 git version about 1-2 weeks ago...I think the relevant source libs where downloaded during the ./configure process. There wasnt much need for manual devel libs installation. So...probably the needed source libs where up to date. My too old compiler problem is just one possible explanation. Lets hope it is something else...see below....

I compiled ebml and matroska libs with dev files from matroska.org source. Now I am compiling vlc again against those up to date libs.

Okay...some progress. First...Mplayer2 does not use libebml and libmatroska at all... the mkv demuxer has been compiled in without need of those libs.
Vlc-2.0.1 does not get mkv demuxer to work with those squeeze compile libebml and libmatroska. So...mkv demuxer is broken. I suspect now more that it is gcc version dependent problem. Billtoos vlc pets plays mkv alright...which are compiled in different puppies. Slacko or Racy compiled vlc might be one choice also. Billtoo has just compiled vlc in Slacko. He could test his pet in dpup also. Probably mkv test files plays just fine with it, lol.

But....I did now compile vlc with --enable-merge-ffmpeg and now if I change: preferences > choose viewing choice all > input/codecs > demuxers > main row > demux module > drop down and select avformat demuxer...and matroska test files 6 out of 8 plays. 4 and 7 still does not.

I will replace this vlc-2.0.1 version to the repo and update the deps pet also to include those new compiled ebml and matroska libs....just for sure.

Hah ! This is learning process for me. When you compile something yourself...and test the app and play with the options...you learn much about the app itself. A lot of things when you chase down dependencies...study the compiling options. When you know what there is under the hood...the understanding improves.

I have now reuploaded the vlc-2.0.1-dpup and vlc-2.0.1-deps-dpup. It has now ffmpeg merged into it and using avformat demuxer you can play at least some mkv - matroska files. You have to change the demuxer module back to default after that if you want to play something that avformat module does not handle...and there is plenty of them...

Here is the original announcement link for download: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=636508#636508

I also include here my compiled matroska dependent libs. They are included to the reuploaded deps pet...but if you dont want to download it again...just install these pets and and vlc should be happy. There wasnt any other change in that deps pet. You wont need DEV pets ....if you wont want to try to compile vlc with better luck in squeeze than I had. Billtoo Wink

Compiling options, included about 400 modules and possible error messages of dependent libs you get in console: vlc -vvv ---list
