Anyone know of an archive that still has a copy of Dpup477?
The file's full name is, I believe, dpup-477beta1-2.6.27.4.iso

Thanks.

Hey people, bringing this thread back from the dead Smile
I'm still using dpup484 b4 on my PC and was thinking of updating some backend stuff ( new glibc/gtk/gnutls ) so it's more compatible with newer apps and packages.
I compiled glibc 2.13 and gtk 2.24.4 plus new gnutls if anyone's interested I might upload an iso after some testing if I manage to get this right.

EDIT: I want to keep same Xorg version that was in dpup, and make build with same kernel just with these libs updated since I'm not kernel guru, but pemasu is willing to try to update kernel once I upload a working iso and devx.

I understand updating the gtk and its deps, but why update a kernel? The kernel in it was good if I recall right, Xorg ran very quickly with firefox, I would update things like Seamonkey/Firefox whichever but use the mozilla versions because they autoupdate which is nice for users, sure you compile them they are a bit smaller but don't update, maybe compile the latest QT which is always nice and VLC, but the best is GTK, oh when you compiled GTK did you get libpangocairo to compile? its usually a pain.

Well, kernel works just fine for me, I just though maybe other users would like it for newer modules and stuff, I am surely doing a build with same kernel and keeping Xorg.
I compiled glibc, glib, pixman, cairo, pango in that order, since it needs cairo compiled first to build libpangocairo. gdk_pixbuf was also needed to build gtk, it compiled but I had problems with it later so when I build gtk I update all these packages but keep old gdk_pixbuf which doesn't seem to make problems so far.

EDIT: BTW ttuuxxx I still haven't striped/splited these packages, since these are some crucial system libs can I still split dev libs and put them in devx sfs and what about locales?
Oh yeah it wanted new atk package too.

Good news. Cool
In an ideal world we would have pups created using woof (new security features being added) from the majors such as dpup, spup and upup . . .

I was very happy to use dpup
whilst it was emerging.
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Dpup

Some of the features and innovations that Guy was adding
showed a real talent and very able Puplet.
Good luck with the resurrection. Smile

Well, I'll be doing some kind of manual update, compile these libs on actual dpup and then replace them in unsquashed old sfs, I will probably ditch blinky which is now ancient and use Barry's network tray icon which is standard for any wm systray, and maybe add firewallstate icon?
I will probably add precompiled seamonkey, not sure if firefox 4 is really enough stable yet. Plus seamonkey has customizable movable toolbars now.

Hi most of the time the locales are located in /usr/lib/locale either in the iso, which will take extra ram at boot time or like in 2.14X its located in zdrv_214X.sfs in the iso.

I did post the sources of the blinky replacement called networktray used in Upup Luci located at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=519304#519304

looking forward to your iso Smile

Yes first you compile the bin in the sources on that link and then you download the pet from that link and you switch the bins in the pet with the compiled one. That version gives you 5 themes and you can change them by right clicking on the icon on the taskbar. Where as Barry's doesn't have any themes.

I'm still using 484 b4 on one machine that I frequent. I'm with ttuuxxx on the kernel, mine works great. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Frisbee is suposed to be better with wireless? I could replace it I guess but since I don't use wireless I can't really know how effective it is. Thanks for testing aarf.
