Subject description: Support for 4.12, older machines and systems
 

Well a bundle of changes were made to the site and Dave has just uploaded them.

Its quite a mix so I felt it deserved a fresh topic. There will be more to follow but probably on a one at a time basis..

Avidemux, Dillo, Psip, Updates for Puppy 412, VirtualBox, VLC and Wine....to name but some and some redundant packages have been removed to make way for new items.

http://412collection.neocities.org/index.html

Any comments , feedback or suggestions are welcome... Smile

hmm yes sounds like a good idea.

I was wondering that there is probably a pile of info on this forum ... indeed there are several links on 412collection already. Perhaps expanding on that would be the way and also perhaps a thread like this could gather such information which could be echoed on the site.

Useful stuff that will be of general interest to the user eg. How to change the background colour of a ROX window (the default colour of the official release is an uglyish grey). Perhaps a list of general tips, etc with links to the forum for answers.

Hello, people.

I just went for a visit.

Really interesting site, easy to navigate.
Contains some valuable applications difficult to find elsewhere.
Clearly presented material.

Sums up everything Puppy-4.12 in one place.
Makes you wish some other Puppy series had similar sites...

Bravo to the team! Keep up the good work!

well I would have said Lucid/Lupu would be a prime candidate.
A CMS on a free host would do the job nicely... indeed all major releases could have its own slot. The forum does carry a large load in trying to fulfill so many purposes.

Thanks for GK Dial and its libraries. For the first time I can connect almost as fast as Windows with my cellphone modem. Very Happy (What is the command to connect immediately (not having to click connect)?

Hmm good question but no clues I will ask dave he uses it... pupdial behaves for my 3g and phone.

mike

edit...he said he just uses the connect button but glad it helped... he was responsible for that addition

Well, figured it out halfway maybe you can fill in the complete picture for me. Gkdial opens the application. Typing: ppd call CellC in terminal then connects it for me (instead of clicking connect). I can't get a script to work though. Ppd is in /usr/sbin. BTW - gkdial connects in 5 seconds opposed to pupdial (wvdial) in 20 seconds which is quite an improvement.

hmm not familiar with it...
so ppd call CellC does the job but you need gkdial running as well? (to create the config for pppd?)

That's not pppd is it by the way?

And its not working from a script? eg

#!/bin/sh
ppd call CellC

Got it as I want it. Connect script with the pppd call (default connection script in /usr/local/bin changed). Disconnect script with killall pppd command. Bypassing gkdial box (only need to run gkdial once to do the configuration). Much the same way I bypassed pupdial and used wvdialshell directly. Now just to get a nice desktop icon for the disconnect Very Happy
