PostPosted: Sat 22 Mar 2014, 13:35    Post subject: xpaint  

Installed xpaint today from PPM. Nice little draw/paint tool

Also can be started with xpaint -magnifier to start up a magnification window. Or xpaint -snapshot to enable a quick dragging over the area you want to capture (I know - mtpaint and pupsnapshot already do that).

Negatives : The menu fonts in xpaint are too small for my liking and I don't think its being maintained/updated ???

01micko--Thank you. I had that SFS loaded but I still show qt as a missing dependency. Nonetheless, I was able to get SpiderOak working, so I am happy for now.

Next question: I have installed py-qt, but it is quite massive. I have seen several SFS files for it. Which one is recommended for Slacko5.7?

Again, thank you folks for all the help. I look forward to the day when I can start giving some, instead of just need it. Smile

On my old machine (from 2000) 5.7 is working very nice. Attached hardware/system reports. Btw. is there quite new pup with Dillo or Netsurf, because FF is to much memory hungry.

Edit:
I had only problem (on former versions too) with proper resolution for my graphic card and monitor. So i've used old CD of Knoppix and checked parameters for vertical and horizontal synchronization and used them in X-conf file on Slacko. I't will be nice if Slacko could recognize graphics cards and monitors on boot like Knoppix.

Edit2:
My graphic card on this old machine is Riva TNT2 M64 and monitor is Belinea 17'' (model 10 30 40). I'm using those sync values in X-conf file: H = 31-68, V = 59-85 and resolution is 1024x768. Maybe somebody finds those values useful.

Hello musher0,

Sorry, I was not able to reproduce any problem. I can only suggest you try downloading and installing again. I just tested in Slacko 5.7 with pfix=ram, downloaded from smokey01.com and installed. All went OK, see screenshot, posting from it now.

@Musher0: sometimes (some?) browsers tend to unpack downloaded files on-the-fly. Check if the pet is really gzip'ed.

Greetings!

Hi all,

I just tried to download the kernel sources 3.4.82 sfs using Sfs Manager and I got a "broken link" error. Has anyone else been able to download the kernel sources? Perhaps, from a different link?

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko14/kernel_sources-3.4.82-slacko_4g_f2fs.sfs
(or from a faster mirror)

Looks like a bug in sfs_mgr

No. Actually that's what is in 5.7 and is broken because the devx grep overwrites the kernel grep.
Here is the fix for the kernel source.

Code:

+++ b/usr/sbin/sfs_mgr   2014-03-29 17:54:22.000000000 +0200
@@ -112,8 +114,8 @@
      cp -f /tmp/sfs_mgr_input /tmp/sfs_mgr_input0
      fi
    done
-grep -v -E "kernel|krn" /tmp/sfs_mgr_input0 > /tmp/sfs_mgr_input1
-grep -v -E "devx" /tmp/sfs_mgr_input0 > /tmp/sfs_mgr_input1

+#grep -v -E "devx" /tmp/sfs_mgr_input0 > /tmp/sfs_mgr_input1
 grep $KVER /tmp/sfs_mgr_input0 >> /tmp/sfs_mgr_input1
 grep -E  "${DISTRO_VERSION}\.sfs" /tmp/sfs_mgr_input0 >> /tmp/sfs_mgr_input1
 cp -f /tmp/sfs_mgr_input1 /tmp/sfs_mgr_input


You still need the said pet for the devx.
Hm, maybe I make a new pet with both.

A bit Latter: Here is a pet that will correct both the devx and kernel source download with SFS Manager.
