PostPosted: Tue 16 Mar 2010, 22:40    Post subject: automatic switch ramdisk/on demand
Subject description: puppi on older pc
 

I wish from the Puppi Linux Santa Claus in the future that Puppi recognizes real old scrapware (in the 1rst. world) and in that case (and only in that case) doesn¨t load all into ram, only what is needed for the beginning and then on demand what is called is loaded and unloaded from ram if not needed any more. It could have a warnings like "You are going out of space" or "You are going out of ram" "Please close any programm before opening a new one".
What today are old computer (P3, 500Mb ram) in five years are scrapware in the 1rst. world but not everywhere. There are a lot of P1 computer with 32 MB ram still working with win98 (no more supported) in which a nearly up to date Puppi Linux doesn t fit. In the school of my daughter in South America are 10 of them. I couldn t load nothing except Damn Small Linux what really is not an option for kids. If Puppi could recognize such hardware and switch to work on-demand......
Surely those P1-Scrap are condemned to have W98 to the end but todays old computer could live a bit more, do their job with up to date sw. Maybe for ecological reasons too, a step backwards from extintion, less junk in the toxic mountain.
I´m writing this whith a Puppilinx 4.3.1, I tried 4.3.2 too (nearly the same). Both are stable for me and I like it minimalistic as it is with no gadget.. Woof is a great idea. Congratulations.
Best Regards.

PostPosted: Wed 17 Mar 2010, 21:21    Post subject: msdos disklabel reading implementation on puppy  

I suggest on the next release of puppy that it must have ability to read the msdos disk-label on storage devices (if the storage device has a disklabel on it) and show up on screen (just like on KDE or Gnome) beside the "sdxN" to avoid confusion when plugging or detecting more than one storage devices and the drives can easily identify and distinct. The concept is just like this:

when you plug or detect storage devices. Instead of "sdxN" appear on desktop, it should be "(sdxN)My Drive" which is the same as "(E:)My Drive" on Ms Windows.

Subject description: Scorched3d Artillery game 3D & Free to play online/offline-Ingame chat
 

Smile
Hello guys-
I was wondering if you could include Scorched3d (turn based artillery game-Online & offline play) in a upcoming version of Puppy. We have a new version coming out shortly *V43*. Contact "Gavin Camp" for particulars concerning this game (Is free for all to d/l & play). Webpage located here: http://www.scorched3d.co.uk/index.php *Game typical download sizes= 50-70mb. (a link probably would suffice as well)*

YouTube action links from ingame play= http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIOBQbJB7jk , http://www.youtube.com/user/SuperViking62#p/a/u/2/Bmu8I1IrafU ,

v43 preview= http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbOCNrw8dgc
Scorched3d on MODDB= http://www.moddb.com/games/scorched3d/images/scorched3d2


Thanks for your consideration,

PostPosted: Sat 10 Apr 2010, 12:46    Post subject: Please keep Geany- don't replace it with NicoEdit.  

I see in the release notes for Puppy 4.3
http://www.puppylinux.com/download/release-4.3.htm
that you plan to drop Geany in favor of NicoEdit.

I'd like to strongly request that you do not make this change
1. Geany can open multiple files, and keep them in Tabs; NicoEdit not
2. Geany code-collapse feature ; NicoEdit not

I suspect there are more differences as well.

Add Hibernation feature. Make it a configuration option. Allow it to apply to "Shutdown" menu, close laptop lid, time-based, etc.

(I Googled, and see that it can be done, but it's a little too much for me to do by keystroke entry.)

I know that I am stuck on this, but maybe an official Gnome package. As well as official packages of other WM's. I know there is .sfs of Gnome,KDE,Enlightenment, as well as others, but official releases would be nice.

Hi,

I already wrote this somewhere else in the forum but here it is possibly the best place for such a request.

Is there any chance for making Puppy compliant with PCs having trident cyberblade video cards, for using an SVideo Out without workarounds?

Thanks

I think it is better to include a GUI version of Disk image mounter on Puppy. If they did mounting the disk image is very easy instead of typing a command to mount the disk image.

For ext2, ext3, and squashfs filesystem images, if they are named with the right extension (.2fs, .3fs, .sfs) you can simply click them and Puppy will mount them for you. I don't know if Puppy can already handle filesystem images that don't have an extension. If it doesn't, it could be made to do so.

Other filesystem types still need to be done by hand unless Puppy has added support for more since the last time I checked (maybe it has ext4 and .4fs support now, I don't know).

Sometime in the next couple weeks I'm going to dig out the script that does all this and give it any upgrades I think would be nice. I've been using my own distro for several months now (building it as I go) and that's one of the features from Puppy that I miss.

For that matter, I believe current Puppies can't handle mounting encrypted save-files when clicked on. I already patched the script once last year to add support for that, and I think it might have made it into 4.2, I can't remember. Regardless, it isn't there now. I'll do that again when I work on it as well.

Subject description: I miss a package with comix, easy to install
 

I love to read comics, which are mostly cbr files and I couldn't run comix properly on puppy 5.01.
That would be a great improvement for me.
Thanks.

I wish, I wish, I wish...
That just like when you use a pupsave on a Flash Drive...
A HDD install [frugal or full] would permit the user to [choose to] manually save DURING THE SESSION rather than auto-save.
And choose whether to save or not at shut-down.


Also see the post following that.
