You can get more packages at packages.debian.org or simply compile your own (which is always preferred).

And PPM shouldn't be empty once you update it.

I'm also working on revival of my own distro (Calf GNU/Linux), under a different name. I'm currently rewriting it and I want to write some T2-like infrastructure for cross-compilation of the entire distro, from source.

I'm getting two ARM chips soon and I want to be able to develop for them. They're extremely weak (300-400 MHz) and I want to build a truly minimalistic distro with TinyX11.


It is a great plan. Very Happy
If it is efficient on the underpowered it will fly on more recent CPU. Cool
Puppy can run well on many older systems. It is only right that 64 bit and touch screen, as well as the zipit messengers you are getting; are potential resources.
I hope you will also be Puppy Pi'ing (PARM) style in the new year . . . Smile

When the MIPS style 'Dragon chip' comes in tablet form we should have new throwaway devices (eventually biodegradable)

Good luck with Moo or whatever Calf2 is called Cool

I found some nice packages that I want to include in the next version (or a new puplet):
- mplayer2, it's 2/3 the size of MPlayer, with libav compiled statically into it (which replace the MPlayer package's FFmpeg)
- Links, a very lightweight browser - it's good enough as a HTML viewer
- cwm, my new favorite window manager Cool
- Feh, a smaller package
- muPDF, a ~5 MB PDF viewer that is way faster than any Poppler-based alternative (e.g Zathura, ePDFView)
- A new, smaller rxvt-unicode package with some bug fixes
- The Terminus font! Very Happy

Good news, my port of the latest cwm from OpenBSD to GNU/Linux is ready - I uploaded it to the PETs forum. Smile

Subject description: folders to desktop
 

how can i change the pinboard to allow dragging and dropping icons to the desktop... or, are changes to something other than the pinboard required?

i like to have my "personal folder" on the desktop... that's all...basically, i use the right click menu button to access apps, etc.

i do not use wbar and, thus, have deleted it...

thank you...

hey there this puplet is pretty great! I was looking for a suitable replacement for pupeee in my life and i think we have a winner.

however couple of small little issues with it

1.For some reason on my asus 1005hab the stock network thing never works? so i always just install frisbee which works just fine.

2.It took a little noodling to get the xorg set up right. For some reason it always just cut off the sides way too much but i went through and found a res that works i just forgot the exact res i picked Embarassed

3. For some reason i can not configure the touchpad? it works just fine and you can do tapping instead of clicking (which is odd) but when i try to use the flsynclient it tells me that there is no synaptics driver loaded. i am at a loss on how to deal with this one any suggestions would be great.

otherwise, everything else works like a charm! great puplet!

Hello! I would like some help for my only problem with this excellent puplet.
I installed Guy Dog 5.0.1. through the windows installer method that I saw in this forum, and then installed kde trinity.

My problem is that the system keeps asking for Rox (It says "not installed") when I mount a disk or when I open a file from a browser, which gets a bit frustrating. I tried all the Rox pets I could find but to no avail.

Can anyone please give me instructions on how to set konqueror as default, or link me a working rox pet? Thank you very much!

Just delete /usr/bin/rox and make a symlink to your favorite file manager.

Create a file under /root/Startup and make it executable:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
rox -p /path/to/pinboard

PostPosted: Fri 16 Dec 2011, 18:58    Post subject: Closed source Nvidia drivers  

Hi Iguleder
I recently installed the Nvidia driver (285.05) on a frugal installation of Guy Dog 5.0.1
Afterwards the system font was enlarged dramatically so that this installation was unuseable. All attempts to decrease the font were unsuccessful. Do you have an idea how to workaround ?
Thanks in advance.
Christian
