I figured it out I just installed an sdl.pet package that fixed the problem.

Have you ever used Netsurf before? It is a CLI web browser, I think it also supports flash. if that could be tweaked to handle flash and java I think it would be a very nice addition.

Hi i have tested guydog and like it. it seems to be built ok.

I am having trouble running it on an old packard bell m5 series latop. i ran dmidecode and it gave me this click here encase any of that information is useful

it will not run x I ran lspci to find out what it has and it has this.
Display controller: intel Corporation 82852/855GM Intergrated Graphics Device (rev 02)

i would like to see how this runs but vesa driver will not work a probe did not work and i did not know what driver to manually try.

i would like to run this in the old packard bell but if i cant well thats life.
i can run 528 and slacko on this computer no problems with vesa. maybe its something to do with the drivers you are using in GuyDog

I found guydog from this review. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHAyQ8BY3To

here he states that you recommend not to install apps from ppm. in fact the ppm has been disabled. i need flash plugin and a few other things. I cant find anything for guydog or dpup here in the packages either click here is it safe and ok to install the debian repos in ppm and use them.

For Flash just go here http://puppylinux.org/wikka/libflashplayer than follow the instructions when you extract the package you extract it into the directories. make sure you copy libflashplayer.so into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ into that directory it worked perfectly for me. for java I had to download a sfs files and load it with wizard wizard.

i forgot about that trick for flashplayer. and the same plugin needs to go in the chromium folder if i install that. great.

as i cant find any pets or sfs files for guydog or dpup then i am out of luck with java i guess. i could either install java from source with devx, or if the debian repos work i coudl add them to ppm and be sweet.

when i have some time i will look into it again, guydog is on a my 20gb usb hdd with a few other puppies.

Hats off to a great pup!
Runs nice out of the box, I like the package manager and used it to find Flash so I could watch youtube, and rox for the mount tool (it gave a error that I needed it) Firefox updated from 7 to 10 automatically. It's nice to get back down to under 200 mb and a fast boot (felt like 10 sec) which is how Puppy started. I'll probably add stuff like Gimp as time goes by but for a Pocket Puppy on a USB pen it's nice.

Thanks!

(PS, I installed the iso directly to the usb using unetbootin-windows-568.exe from Win7, and running on an old Dell Optiplex GX620)

PostPosted: Tue 15 May 2012, 08:59    Post subject: Exprimo Pets Should run in Guygod  

Hi,

I was scrolling thru "Derivatives" and was surprised by activity on this thread.
I discontinued using Guydog. But anyone still interested in using it should know that pemasu used iguleder's kernel to develop Exprimo and Exprimo-Multicore. Consequently, almost anything which runs under them can be installed and should run under Guydog.

Exprimo repo: http://smokey01.com/pemasu/pet_packages-dpup/

Many Lupu/Lucid pets will also work.
I recommend created a protected SaveFile before installing each "non-Guydog" pet. Makes it easier to recover from something which breaks other apps.

Maybe he has put The Guy on ice or the back burner?
Try out his home page. I give link soon. Smile

Seems he promote roar-ng there with Subito.
Maybe that is his main motivation now and
that Guy puppy is as is. Look here and maybe
write PM to him if he don't look here and answer.
