Uh Oh. Not so good. It is definitely Pussy that is putting my wireless router into a funny state. I had this problem with some other puppies as well: Ttuxxxs 214x series, some of the recent Wary's, and Cielo Wary 5 also.

I guess it is something odd with the router code in my Thomson, but what happens is that the dhcp request from Pussy is successful ONCE only, and then puts the router into a state where future dhcp requests will be ignored and no further IP addresses will be issued. Powering off/on the router is the only way to correct the situation.

I see that WiCD has a setting to change from "automatic" dhcp to dhdpcd so I will give that a go later and see if it helps. Just thought I would report it in case anyone else has probs with Pussy wireless.


its my experience that pretty much all routers arnt reliable. I got a $139 router here but i need to reset it every couple of days.

however..... if you can get your head around setting a static ip address on your computers in your puppy and pussy and on your router.... you will notice that these router fails will be reduced.

routers are running on an arm cpu with a bare basic linux OS, any OS isnt very reliable.

but yeah there could very well be something happening with puppy and pussy config but its just impossible to work the issue out without sitting in front of your computer and router to solve it.

if you can use ethernet rather than wireless you will also reduce the drop out issues and the need to reset the router.

there's so many pages here that I couldn't reall find if anyone asked this yet, but is it possible to install .pet packages in this distro? or does it exclusively use the debian package management. Jsut asking this because I'm wanting to try and get Puppy Arcade into a newer distro/fully debian based.

Any thoughts?

if there is not something similar in debian, you could try renaming the pet to tar.gz, click it open and copy the extracted contents to pussy then cross your fingers and try and run it in a terminal.

Ok thanks, I'm not too familiar with puppy, as I was trying to find a distro similar to Puppy Arcade or a debian based arcade frontend. i'll give it a go and see what happens Smile

Yah I saw that, but it is a 2 year old distro, and didn't seem to be active. Also it looked like it was really only for MAME, which I don't really intend to use that much of. Thanks for looking around! I appreciate the help in my quest to find something Smile

Thanks, RSH. It is really a nice one. I'm sure it is hard to find such a picture. I think we should include some of the best alternative desktop backgrounds in the iso.

Here is mine for Grub Legacy:
Code:

title Pussy Linux Beta 2
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
kernel /live/vmlinuz boot=live config persistent swapon quickreboot noprompt autologin username=root password=pussy
initrd /live/initrd.img
boot


This one is for Grub 2 from the Readme.txt on the site:
Code:
menuentry 'Pussy live peristent' {
set root='(hd0,1)'
echo   'Meowing the kernel ...'
linux   /live/vmlinuz boot=live config  persistent autologin quickreboot noprompt swapon username=root password=pussy
echo   'Almost over meowing now ...'
initrd   /live/initrd.img
}

Thanks to SFR we now have right mouse button click cut/copy/paste ROX option for Pussy linux also.
Unzip the attached archive and copy the two folders apps and MultiCopyPaste from MultiCopyPaste-1.1/usr/local to /usr/local

Then run the script /MultiCopyPaste-1.1/pinstall.sh which will create three symlinks in /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/SendTo/

Then select a file/files or folder/folders to be copied and right mouse button click on them. Choose SendTo and you will see these options:

Multi-Copy (New) creates a new list of items to be copied.
Multi-Copy (Add) adds selected items to existed list.
Multi-Paste opens xterm window and starts copying.

To paste the selected files browse to destination place -> select one or more folders -> right-click -> SendTo -> Multi-Paste
After copying you will see an option to delete all source files and folders. If you don't want to delete them just ignore the question and close the xterm window.

More information from the source you can find here:

I am convinced that my Pussy wireless problems are caused by incorrect dhcpcd code. Unfortunately I do not know how to "add in" a new version of dhcpcd.

I did look on various Debian sites to find another version of dhcpcd, and I tried swapping it in place of the Pussy dhcpcd file - but it is obvious that is not enough. There seem to be other files that need to be changed too, but there seem to be so many debian files to choose from and I don't know how to select the correct one and what to do with it.

Does anyone have any idea what is necessary to remove the old dhcpcd and replace it with a new one that is compatible with Pussy?
