482 is the only version that works for me so ... yeah... a vote for 482 for me. I will try the full install later on my home computer and report back. Very Happy

Hi, I hope not to be too late to the party guys.

I tried dpup-477beta1-2.6.27.4.iso in a VMWare machine without problems, later tested dpup-482beta1-2.6.30.5.iso and worked fine too. Then decided to use the later version with updated kernel for my laptop (has the same features and runs fine) dind´t find any problem yet.

First impression:

- The menu options are a mess, seems alphabetically ordered but need a separator bar for app categories and some submenus could be good too.

- The Control Panel in contrast is well organized and something that Puppy really needs in all official versions, good categories and color schemes.

- In many areas seems to have the same software collection that Puppy 4.3, needs a little fat free work here. But I suppose your are making a stable base version first.

- I liked ROX theme (somehow Gnome related?).

- Seems a little faster than Puppy 4.3

Great release gposil, very solid base to work with. Wink

I´ll suggest that for the dpup-482beta1 version you should create a new thread, large threads are hard to follow and the title in this thread is for 476.

Greetings,
clarf

i downloaded the xdelta. created the beta2. and did a manual frugal install and got the same error message as the guys before me posted. oops, something broke. <--- thats a mean little face, I'm not really upset.

hmmm? i just booted up in 214x and checked the md5sum and it actually is not the same as what you have listed. I am going to try and download again.

is there a way to check the md5sum from within dpup?

alright i've done it a few times and this is the hash i get

8c7eadf18a29c5295596b80f759f57cb

and this is the hash you say it should be

c1835d1a87b2200131fd321ed35c95be

everytime I have to keep booting into 214x to check the hash. it really would be a nice right click option. Very Happy

Sorry guy's, it appears that the 482 service pack is flawed, I will withdraw it and re-do it....

clarf's suggestion to create a new thread for 482beta is a good one, i'll do it now.

Bad News

No luck with the kernel sources for k2.6.27.4. Barry didn't keep them but he has stuff for k2.6.27.19 but needs patching and stuff.

Good News

K2.6.27.4 is an Ubuntu kernel which Barry used! That's why there are so many drivers already in it.. Going by that rationale, many Hardy Heron drivers could possibly work in dpup-47x.

Cheers

Hello Guy

If people need a driver they can hunt it down in Hardy repos I spose.

Just one thing. Just running live on my old p3 out in the shed, nice that the acx module was there (It won't compile in 2.6.30.5, even BK had trouble, he has one too). the thing is the locale gui interface, it's too tall and my res is 1280x1024.

Cheers, Mick

amarok pet uploaded to http://dpup.org/dejan555/
If you want kde apps but no kde DE take kdelibs pet only
Then you can install amarok or other kde apps dependent on kde libs,
if you want full desktop enviroment download kdelibs+kde pet
with kde pet you get konqueror, ksnapshot and konsole
kpdf and kopete are here

for gwenview download gwenview deb and libkipi from lenny repo
optionally you can get kipi plugins for some editing capabilities but i haven't tested all dependencies for them
I believe gposil had digikam somewhere?

Oh, btw ttuuxxx, your gimp patch doesn't work, I deleted .gimp-2.4 folder then installed your pet and it output error again. It works anyway after second startup.

Hmmm,

On the driver thing, BarryK said that Ubuntu drivers probably wouldn't work, some might. http://www.puppylinux.com/blog/?viewDetailed=00559 (near the bottom of page)

Cheers, Mick

I'm downloading the latest version, could you post the link to the devx, and also the kernel source for this version.
I'll have to recompile the kernel for the XO project, It will be based on either Dpup or Upup, I prefer Dpup but I guess we'll see how the kernel compiles Smile

The kernel source is Barry's latest at http://puppylinux.com/sources/kernel-2.6.30.5/kernel_src-2.6.30.5-patched.sfs4.sfs
