Icyos:

It's right click - file - properties for file size.

Thanks for the gtk record desktop video.

I just started using Xvidcap a few days ago.

It only does proper audio-video synch with Puppy4.31 versions
for me.

Another option for file size is the du command.
du -h /path/to/my/file.avi

Great vids, did you make any of them in Puppy? If so...
Maybe post a guide in the HOW TO thread? That would be great Smile


All made in the pup and always glad to make any videos this forum requests, please remember though I am a user not a talented programmer, and many thanks indeed for your kind words.

Good videos mate.

Glad you like Puppy....and it shows.

If I could put in a request, could you include a >> Fix Windows video.

""""""""""

Many people have heard about Puppy....
that it can recover files from a crashed Windows install etc.

I try an accommodate this with my help pages for Windows.
I could do it myself... but the rear end of a horse is a thing of beauty
compared to my voice over the net.

A video approach....solves scary moments 4 newbies.

It also spreads the word about Puppy and encourages people
to try it...just as you have because of sneeky's videos.

A basic copying of files in Rox....open 2 Windows and copy
one to the other etc....

different drives...how they are named SDA....SDB etc.

I have my fixes here

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=58305

and a help sheet

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=16661

Hiren's and the Falcon rescue cds are both great options
to repair Windows.

But Puppy can sometimes erase files locked by those utilities,
and vice versa.

/////

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

Hitman Pro

Combofix

RKill

SUPERAntiSpyware Free

Kaspersky TDSS Killer

are great for cleaning if you can finally boot into Windows.

So could you please create such a video.

Regards....Chris.

This seems to be an appropriate place to add my appreciation too! And also my tinkering with 528.

Five weeks into the Puppy experience I blinked and almost missed the 528.I must say the developers are as frisky as frolicking puppies! On 19 Aug I downloaded 528 and burnt to disk and created USB boot. All accomplished easily.At this stage I felt confident enough to install the OS to an HD sans any other on the disk.No problems. As there was no boot menu one was attempted through Menu -> bootloader config as suggested by the OS installer. That went through the process but for some reason would not populate the menu list. Grub4Dos bootloader config created the necessary.That worked as it should. Commenting out the unnecessary entries was simple enough.

BTW the installation was carried out with the second HD disconnected which set system up as sda1.
Two entries in the menu list as follows are mentioned for a reason:

# Full installed Linux
title Lucid 528 (sdb1/boot)
uuid c2781c61-284c-43f3-acd3-d998d4a4077c
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sdb1 ro

# Boot from Partition Boot Sector

title Lucid 528 (sdb1:PBS)
uuid c2781c61-284c-43f3-acd3-d998d4a4077c
chainloader +1

Booting from the first works fine. The second however produces an error 13:Invalid or unsupported executable format.. Now commenting out that and attempting to boot from the “good” one also returns error 13.! This is inexplicable. At least to me.

A sharp eye would have noted that the above menu entry refers to sdb1 rather than sda1. It is an edit following the reconnection of the second HD.

Experimenting further the nvidia driver was installed but the command nvidia-xconfig returns command not found.

At this stage boot to 528 was accomplished through bios and selecting the appropriate HD. Having read of difficulties elsewhere of booting from grub2 an attempt was made to use grub2 in Ubuntu installed on the second HD. From that OS an update of grub2 found the above two menu entries as two identical entries :

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (on /dev/sdb1)
Either one can be booted from. This is mystifying to me!

VLC had problems with playing an mkv file with garbled video but satisfactory sound. A check of the file under Ubuntu’s VLC confirmed the file’s integrity and rendered perfectly.

Speaking of speed I must say the the OS boots to a working environment in 14 seconds on my system, half the time it takes to boot into Ubuntu.

Once again my congratulations to the developers who have provided me at least a pride of place OS that is the defacto.

THANK YOU to all the developers and contributors. The puppy linux environment and indeed the linux world has undoubtedly put to rest a claim by a senior person of another operating system that because no ones ass is on the line no good work can come out it. I guess it would be difficult for mercenaries to realise “goodness is its own reward. I hope an oldie can be forgiven for philosophising thus. To me the international free cooperative spirit fostered by the linux community and so freely expressed in the above posts is by far more important than any super OS Very Happy
