SlimPup is one of the prettiest puppies with no user tweaking required.
It's true to its promise of being lightweight, fully-equipped, small and portable.
As with previous versions, 3.6 is just awesome on my Acer One netbook.
Thank you for SlimPup and keep up the good work!

Issue
Surprisingly, 3.6 could not go past X configuration on my old HP Compaq nx9040.
Doing the configuration from terminal and trying Vesa won't convince this puppy to proceed.
I'm sure 2.x versions worked well with the old laptop but I can't confirm which one as I have not kept a copy of older iso's as soon as I know that the latest version work on my netbook.

Question
What are the requirements for the ClockRings conky configuration to work?
On another puppy where I installed both conky and lua, clock hands and rings do not display.

Suggestion
SlimPup could benefit from conkyswitcher. It makes swapping between conky configurations a click-and-point thing for ordinary users like me.

Thank you!
Not sure why your nx9040 is not compatible with X. Hmm, quite strange. Yes, the 2.x.x versions of puppy work with pretty much anything. The device may just be too old of a model for slimpup :\ This is where Wary and the older versions come in handy though!

The requirements for the rings is Lua. Users will often write the rings in lua or ruby and call for them in the conky configuration file.

Thank you for your suggestion, I will write a small conky-switcher program and include new conky configurations in the next version. Smile

Wow. Big fan of both #! and Puppy for ages so this is a marriage in heaven for me. Took me some time to find my way around the programs and menu, but I am getting used to it and i like the simplicity of it all. However it does take a while to boot to my T40 compared to other puplets.

I also found that this puplet can run on repos other than Lucid with just a few clicks... has anyone tried switching their repos this way yet? How are the dependencies handled?

Enjoying myself immensely with this one and will report any issues here.

Cheers to Sheepy for this great puplet.

Wai! What other repos can slimpup use?

I didn't know you could switch repos.

Subject description: switching repos
 

@ Gnuxo - I am at work atm so can't be sure but i was going thru my menu list and somewhere under the system settings i found that my sources.list was pointing to Lucid. However, it also appears that with just a few clicks you can switch to Slackware or Debian. I just don't know how dependencies are handled or if configurations are needed. Didn't get a chance to play with trying to switch repos yet, but i intend to when i get home tonight.

Please do Straypup and tell me how it goes.

I'd like to add the webupd8 repos and the getdeb, playdeb repos to 528 based distros.
I don't know if that would work though.

I may get Slimpup back if it's indeed possible to test out different repos.

Yes, in just a few clicks you can change the repo to any of the Ubuntu Lucid repos, or other Puppy Official repos. You just open "configure package manager" while in the package manager. While there, you can change and update repos. Smile
