Experimental build of VLC 2.1.4 Media Player
Compiled in Dpup Wheezy. In case you haven't seen it in the Multimedia thread, users may wish to give it a try (take the usual precautions).

Hi,
about compiling in wheezy-3.5.2.11 ... (and maybe others...)
When compiling applications in wheezy_3.5.2.11 (+ only devx_wheezy_3.5.2.11.sfs mounted + applications requested dependencies ), i use to compile according to the usual steps documented in the README and INSTALL doc:
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
make install

I noticed that the resulting home-compiled binaries have a larger MB size than the one compiled by other forum members, or present in the puppy repos, or available on the Debian repo:
- as an example, i got compiled Htop-1.0.3's /usr/bin/htop to 575K, whereas it sizes only 110K instead.
- again, compiling nted-1.10.18 results in a ca. 6MB /usr/bin/nted binary whereas it is only 1MB in the repo.

Then how might it be possible to -dramaticaly Shocked - shrink their size that much?
Thanks for any enlightment Smile

Cheers, Charlie

Finally making the shift from pemasu's Upup Precise 3.8.3.1 to Dpup Wheezy, after suffering substantial filesystem errors to *parts* of my pupsave. Perhaps the hard drive on my Lenovo T60 (3GB Ram, dual core at 2 GHz) is starting to fritz, but I have had a history of improper shutdowns I hope to avoid in future with judicious system backups. Will be following the "keep your savefile slim and healthy" thread pretty closely too, now http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=62110

Anywho, the migration has been surprisingly painless - except for the issue of the xorg/ radeon/KMS driver issue that I am working through thanks to others posting already in this thread. Downloading devx as I type. But a newbie question - how do I re-enable sliding working windows between desktops/workspaces?? This is a JWM feature I find *particularly* useful in a laptop - but I can't find a simple setting switch for it like screensaver, trays, desktops etc etc. Could someone please post a solution - is there a line in the jwmconfig2 I need to include?

Many Thanks (esp to pemasu for this 'keeper')

Some weeks ago I compiled the latest NDISwrapper (1.59) in Dpup Wheezy.
Only recently I got round to testing it with my Netgear WNA3100 USB wireless adapter.
It's working very well.

Take note, it contains a kernel module so is only suitable for Dpup Wheezy with kernel 3.5.2 and will not work in other Puppies.

In Dpup Squeeze Exprimo, there is an application with the title "Desktop Setup". I can't find it in Dpup Wheezy, does anyone know where I can get hold of it?

It's a program that saves the current desktop, so it can be restored.
Very handy for anyone who changes the icons on the desktop and then changes the list of loaded sfs files in "Boot Manager".
(Which causes the "default" icons to be re-written onto the desktop.)

Hi gyro,
as what you are looking for is from a Pemasu's production, you might have a look to his repo:
http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu
and therein look for it browing among the pet_packages-xyz pets folders:
does this match what you would need? (dpup=debian pup pets repo)
http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu/pet_packages-dpup/desksetup-0.5.pet
This might also work on dpup-wheezy ...just get a try on it Smile
have fun!
Charlie

@charlie6
Thanks.
Yes, I'll try that.
gyro

Edit: Thanks, that works in Wheezy.

I have compiled the latest openssl-1.0.1h security fix release
For Dpup Wheezy only, not other Pups.
Also the latest curl-7.37.0
Not sure if the original included one is broken or doesn't like openssl upgrades.
This one seems fine so far though.

Since this distro is getting a lot of support from OscarTalks and runs brilliantly.

Is this a compatible repository for the Dpup?

Ok, the nvidia pet offers to remove nouveau, and then after a reboot you can pick the nvidia in xorg. There is also that nvidia at smokey 01.

It doesn't say that direct rendering is on in system/hardinfo/display, but firefox is noticeably better on scrolling speed on things like facebook. The user reported that it was superb now.

Anyone know what the score is for intel? I believe they open source their drivers from the get go.

This is Qtractor 0.6, complete. A Multitrack Audio and Midi Recorder.

To use it, you will need to first install Jack and Jack Control GUI Interface.
And set your sound card up (maybe start with default 1024 latency to begin with)

OscarTalks pets are here:

http://smokey01.com/OscarTalks/jack-audio-connection-kit-0.124.1-wheezy.pet

http://smokey01.com/OscarTalks/qjackctl-0.3.11-wheezy.pet

And the Qtractor pet here:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/8rtc78w1h3he4sa/qtractor_3.5.2.11.pet?dl=1

I have tested it quite a bit and runs well after initial plugin scans and saving your setup.

The vst portion is also built in, which hosts vst plugins, intruments etc which seem to be much more available than lv2, but some might crash.

To use vst's, you will need some version of wine (1.5.10 v1 by version 2013/Green Dome was used for testing).

Then if you make a new directory called vst in root, and throw any dlls into that,
When Qtractor starts it will scan that folder and the plugins in there will then be available.

Some of the lv2 (invada, not installed) plugins seemed to have a problem at times on the gui, not sure why.

But I have run Kjaerhus plugins and some vst amps and they seem to run ok as do LADSPA plugins.

Subject description: fix to pMusic not displaying audio-CDs tracks titles on wheezy
 

Hi,
- the wheezy-3.5.2.11's (as also 3.5.2.5) embedded libcdio lib does not meet the embedded cddb_query binary (used by pMusic to read audio-CDs tracks titles - i.e. cdda format )
result: on wheezy, pMusic does not display tracks titles when trying to read and play an audio-CD, and somewhat freezes (CPU sometimes runs up to 100% ---> switch off the PC to kill; restart X cannot help to kill ...!)
- as to avoid dubble posting, click the below link to get a fix.
