Dude you rock!

I put the 'app starter' icon on the desktop with the existing 2 browser icons, my niece ( 7 years old ) loves using this - it's better than her existing windoze pc which runs slow.

Thanks again Smile

@ PuppyMartin

In this build ( beta 5 ), I seem to have a small problem which is extremely annoying and am unable to find a solution to my problem.

I have installed this to a USB flash memory drive and created a 'save' file.

Now when I reboot and get onto my desktop, I get the PMount dialog box appearing asking me if I wish to mount my internal HDD.

Even if I choose 'no' the dialog box keeps on returning and will not disappear.

I am at a lost as to why this happens continually Sad

A solution would be appreciated.

[EDIT]

Solved the problem, just reinstall the OS to the stick .... problem seems to have disappeared however I do notice the when using the filemanager, it continually seems to scan.


Regards

Has anyone added Boxee to their Browserlinux 400 b5 ? I added the xorg-high pet and download Boxxe (changed properties, too), but so far no luck. Appreciate any suggestions.

Weighing in here to offer kudos for a well-made and thoughtful puplet! Works great! I do prefer another browser other than the two offered, but it was no trouble hitting the package manager and loading the one I wanted. Nice compact iso without a lot of bloat and low ram usage, great job, can't wait to see the next version!

PostPosted: Thu 30 Sep 2010, 03:00    Post subject: No NVidia drivers included ?  

Hi Martin,
I am running your latest version now again on a Athlon X2 3800
with NVidia 6150 motherboard graphics and it only makes
1280x1024 on my 1920x1200 monitor.

The graphics chip can easily do 1920x1200 and XORG Wizzard also
shows it, but then it switches back to 1280x1024...

So did you include an NVidia driver or how can I install this additionally ?

Many thanks.

Regards, Stefan.

@ hartiberlin

There's an Nvidia driver here:

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-5/nvidia-195.36.15-k2.6.33.2.pet

It might be worh looking in this section for ideas/suggestions:

@ pistoi0

Did you install the Python.PET file as well?

It worked for me using the following PET files:

Xorg High for Intel GFX ( have Intel GFX onboard )
Python
XBMC

Only tested on LAN network, worked perfectly for me.

@Chrome

Thanks for the assistance. I did a fresh download of PLB and all the pets you suggested with no luck. When I run in terminal, I get dependency errors. This continued even after tracking down libjasper. I must be missing a package somewhere along the line.

Has Browserlinux died. Are there problems that we do not know about. This is a good release for kids to use with livecd for internet safety.
I want to thank you for all your hard work.

Hi l2ulinux,

No, not died, but it was time to wake me up.
Next weekend I will make a new version with the final Firefox 4 and an updated Flash.

Martin

I fraking *LOVE THIS*. Tremendously awesome. I should have taken the time years ago to thank you for a much earlier version of this puplet- it allowed my mom to continue to work on her computer after she had installed so many anti-viruses (and i'm talking corporate versions, she equates $$$ with how well something works) on an xp box with 256 megs of ram it would take over a half hour to boot Smile. I popped in browserlinux and she used it until she bought a laptop over a year later- all she wanted to do was surf, IM, and bank, and browser linux was a God send. And now this?!?! Just fantastic. I think this is the best UI extant in puppyland, and i will definitely be burning copies for friends of my wife who've been looking for just such a pup!

If you have the time, please update it. This is a puplet definitely worth keeping alive!

oooups that is spreading. VLC and what was the other program also complaining.

Can one not fool it with Spot or Fido then?

One guy did he not hack Chromium to accept root? I use seaside's SFS-Exec loader and use this sfs

chromium12.0.703.0-77939w5.sfs

sure it says that the flash is too old but one can say that one want to run the flash anyway and it accept it and then it say that it can not show a certain page and then one do a go back to the screen that first came up and then it allow the new url so it works from then on.

yeah odd behavior but it works with a little tinkering and loads fast and unloads fast too.
