When it did work in some earlier version of lucid it was in JWM.
In quirky 1.2, JWM also.

Subject description: Bug with the HELP icon and associated program.
 

When I click on HELP, I get a help page displayed in Netsurf.
When I try to display the help for an application, I use the dropdown selection to choose the application.

It then gets displayed in the dropdown menu as my selection.
But how does one actually see that help page?
I ask this because there is no GO button and clicking on the selection just activates the drop down menu again.

PostPosted: Tue 17 Aug 2010, 14:12    Post subject: Problem with wvdial.conf
Subject description: changes are not persistant
 

I am thrilled with this release! Great work all. However I have one minor annoyance; I can not get my /etc/wvdial.conf to stay put. I am using a usb 3g modem. when I try to connect with pupdial I get an error. (Unacceptable string, or something like that - I will write it down next time('Embarassed'))
I go to probe, erase, then probe and connect without a problem. If I disconnect, I can reconnect without a problem, but on shutdown and restart I have to repeat the process. Not a big deal, but a minor annoyance.

Below is what wvdial.conf exhibits on start up and it reverts to this after connecting. This seems to work after the initial connection is made if I disconnect and reconnect.


[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Baud = 9600
Init1 =
Init2 = ATZ
Init3 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Carrier Check = no
Dial Command = ATDT

Below is what wvdial.conf exhibits after erase and probe, which is required for initial connection:

[Dialer Defaults]
Modem = /dev/ttyUSB0
Baud = 9600
Init1 = ATZ
Init2 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Init3 = ATQ0 V1 E1 S0=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS=0
Carrier Check = no
Dial Command = ATDT
ISDN = 0
Modem Type = Analog Modem
; Phone = <Target Phone Number>
; Username = <Your Login Name>
; Password = <Your Password>

Any help is appreciated, and again- great work!

Chris

driver in quickpet works fine with it.

PostPosted: Tue 17 Aug 2010, 21:39    Post subject: pps files in OO.o
Subject description: Does work in IceWM
 

01Micko,
Opening a slideshow in a .pps file using OO.o's default (fullscreen) settings works fine in IceWM, so it looks like you are correct in thinking the problem is with JWM. I forget who reported the sound not working but mine doesn't either. One machine I tried it on does not have JRE installed and OO.o informed me I needed it for sound to work, but the one that does have JRE still has no sound working. That one gives no error messages, just no sound although I did see the speaker icon. Needless to say the sound does work in other programs (GMplayer, Pmusic). Maybe sound is too much to ask for?

On a different subject, when I had my netbook running 5.0.9 and my desktop running 4.3.1, I had no problems printing from the netbook through the printer attached to the desktop (an old Deskjet 895c). I've now upgraded the desktop to 5.1 and the netbook can't see the printer! Suggestions anyone?

Once again thanks to all for the immense effort of creating this fine OS! With this newest distro Linux is finally approaching the "friendliness" and usefulness of the big high-dollar OSs. To put it better, I can finally see the time coming when Joe and Jane Average will say "why should I pay Bill Gates or Steve Jobs $100 for the right to use my computer? Puppy Linux is just as good and easier to use!" Good job guys. And girls!

When your desktop was running Puppy 4.3.1, it had CUPS 1.1.23. This version automatically shared its printers with other machines on the network.

Now that you have Puppy 5.1, you are using CUPS 1.4.x. In this version you need to specify that you want to share a printer. This is done in two places.

1. When you add a printer, there is a checkbox for Share This Printer.

2. Under the Administration tab, look in the Server section. There is a checkbox for Share Printers Connected to this System.

happy to report the install went ok until closing down sequence....

This box has two cd drives in it, it couldn't write the puppy510.sts file across because it was trying to mount a drive with no cd in it, not the one that it was installed from.

It just got stuck!

oh well Confused

dell, compaq and ibm boxes to test next week Twisted Evil

PostPosted: Tue 17 Aug 2010, 22:56    Post subject: what the! ?glxgears : 01mick??  

same box as started with (acer)

needed to put a scsi card in to recover some old pascal programming and matching dataset from a syquest removable drive cartridge (some will remember them).

needed to borrow a irq and decided to use the internal video's

everything went well with the transfer,

box even seemed to be working faster.

just out of curiosity I decided to run glxgears

console said no irq and it was falling back to busy waits:20 (whatever that means)
but
glxgears was now adveraging 8230 frames per 5seconds

it had been adveraging 3600 and later when I had put it back as before with an irq was again.

strange Question

PostPosted: Tue 17 Aug 2010, 23:07    Post subject: 5.1 and winmodems  

has anyone looked at the problem of winmodems with 5.1?

works well with 4.3.1 but not with 5.1.

regards
scsijon

edit: it looks like rerwin looked into this with quirky, maybe he could be asked to do so again for 5.1.

Subject description: no sound
 

@ 01micko

Howdy. Icewm works somewhat better than jwm.
However, sound doesnt work.
A 'buntu forum said gstreamer modules were needed.
I got the 4 from PPM. 2 named 'bad' and 2 'ugly'.
Also installed perl-base-5.10.1, perl-5.10.1,
and perl-modules-5.10.1
Perlapi-5.10.1 dependency not resolved.
Still no .pps sound.
Help?

This does not bother me but I found this in a review of Lucid Puppy in one of the Linux Magazines.

Something to think about.

I've tried previous versions of Puppy Linux and its derivatives and always dumped them because of one issue: the bundled packages cannot be uninstalled as they are read-only files. Is this still the same with Lupu?

Booting "live" CD-RW [made using lupu-510.iso] with pupsave on partition on a Flash Drive.
This updated the pupsave that was originally made by lupu-501. [Seemed to work/complete OK]
Then applied the 002 update.

PROBLEM
1.
(a) When I tried to use "Menu->Setup->CUPS"...
Instead of a Firefox window opening...
I got [and still get] the "Browser Installer" opening.
[I have already used the browser installer to install the Firefox Browser]

(b) To do the necessary I used [entered manually in a terminal]:
From /usr/sbin/cups_shell, line 36:
exec defaultbarehtmlviewer http://localhost:631/
This runs the CUPS setup window in the default html viewer.
This appeared to work OK, the printer now functions.

2. Also get the browser installer when I click the "Browse" icon on the desktop.

I am hot on the heels of the LUCID Black Screen of Death bug
I did not install Gridwars2 or Firefox 4 beta and still have a corrupted load from 510.sfs and I have just copied that to HD - about to reboot to see if that is the problem

Batton down the hatches, sardines and mermaids first (last?)
Not sure anymore . . . Confused

Update:
I don't get it
ISO OK
saving to USB keydrive OK, so not hard drive
(I thought I might have a hardware problem)
I am in Fatdog 64
No one else is reporting this so what can it be?
. . . a piece of stray config from a beta of Lucid?
Well no because I used a fresh save file onto USB

My latest theory is that I was saving in ext3
and swapped back to ext 2 and . . . [shrug]
see enclosed image which is a new error message . . .

Someone is out to get me

PostPosted: Wed 18 Aug 2010, 08:34    Post subject: Bootflash from full hdd installation  

Hi,

I did a full hdd installation with Lucid puppy 5.1. Then I downloaded and installed the two update pet files. Now I try to make a usb bootflash at a pendrive.
If I take the iso file from original live cd, I get with fdd installation the error after booting fdd:

could not find kernel image: linux

From where I should take the iso file to include the two updates with sfs ?

Regards
Svgt
