Hi 01micko,

I like your MD5 checker. It's lean and readily available for all Slacko users (and possibly other Pups).

My regards and thanks

v0.2 is made already Jasper!

I improved error checking if boxes are empty, you'll notice a change in the icon from the screenshot too. See previous page.

01micko/Jasper

Hang on I have only just tested V0.1 Smile Smile

It works fine but there is something strange, nay weird going on, as when I checked the T-Slacko ISO that I downloaded yesterday
it gave a totally different but identical sum with GTkhash, portable apps & your new utility. I concluded that I had some how corrupted it or changed it.
Downloading it again & checking gave the correct MD5 across the board. Perhaps Jasper did not have a bad download after all as googling "preventing md5 mismatch errors from compression changes"
seems to indicate a possible problem/cause. I have been unable to replicate it again checking both mounted and unmounted.

I mainly built this for bragging rights.. Rolling Eyes (99 MB full featured Laughing ), still it is a useful pup and some don't like seamonkey.


Namoroka worked fine for a day and then it wouldn't play videos at
cnn, I have no idea what changed.
I compiled Firefox 12 aka Nightly and Thunderbird 12 aka Earlybird in
Racy and they work in THINSlacko.

THINSlacko is working nice, it can't do certain games like Nexuiz and
Openarena but kdegames is good and after adding a few other
applications it does pretty much everything that I want.

Thanks.

Subject description: xfe file explorer
 

I made pets of the latest XFE file explorer in slacko 531.
It needs the fox-1.6.45-i686.pet installed as well.
If you don't already have Mesa -GLX installed it needs that too, it's
in slickpet under drivers.

XFE is a single or dual pane file explorer which allows file
associations, single click, themes, different font sizes, etc.

Thanks Billtoo, so these works in Slacko then.
There is a thread for XFE but maybe that one is for Lupu
so we need one XFE thread for each puppy Smile

I have not get motivated to change over to Slacko.
I am still using Lupu out of habit. And this is even ThinSlacko.

I love choice so all power to the Devs for allowing choice.
But I do feel a bit lost not being able to decide which Puppy is best. Smile
Oh the joy of choice.

99 Mbyte is a major achievement.

These small iso's are (appart from the achievement itself) only usefull for the people with small memory footprints. In other words the older PC's, with slower processors.

Would it be smart to use a different compression to the benefit of these slower processors (and end up with a 101Mbyte iso ??).

Just a thought ?

Not necessarily. There are many reasons for developing very low resource distros, hence SliTaz and Tiny Core, inter alia. Of course, there is greater benefit if they can run on old AND new kit, but driver/driver availability might become limiting with, esp. new and voracious video cards, for example. One key to universality is to select a low resource browser and there has been much discussion of this here for many years.
Only for the very smartest developers will there be the prospect of a universal fastboot distro written in assembler and running off a single FDD. So far only the one exists. In the UK, the introduction of the RPi was intended to promote code-level (specifically NOT C/C+/C++ and other picture-based languages) interest and teaching amongst children. We shall see! First get your Pi delivered...

Like most of the latest puppy versions, it fails to offer
the i810 graphics driver in xorg setup; making it a poor
choice for the many fine laptops that have 855gm graphics.

Subject description: Great work micko
 

Thanks for this. I hadn't noticed it before! I use Slacko PAE all the time on my desktop, but have tended to go for Racy on my (aging) laptop. I've just installed this on said laptop in order to take advantage of the working X11 grab / ffmpeg in Slacko. Brilliant.

Ooooo! This may be exactly what I am looking for. My needs are a slim OS that can run:

a web browser with Adobe Flash Player 10.x
putty
the latest TeamViewer (may require igluders run as root .pet)

Lean and mean is all I need.

System:
MiniPC w/N270 (single core) Atom 2Gig Ram.

I see forum member Speedyluck has compiled a Precise for ATOM but does it matter with a single core?

Is THINSlacko a good candidate for this request or can you suggest something that may fit better?

Nice work Micko,
I just installed ThinSlacko to a usb stick for booting my work netbook when I don't feel like using the default WinXP install. The netbook is an Acer eMachines e350-21G16i aka:"model NAV51" (1.6Ghz N450 single core, 1Gb ram)

Running really nicely, and detects both network interfaces properly (including the wireless Broadcom BCM4313).
Device screenshot attached.

Just noticed a problem with sound when using ThinSlacko on the aforementioned netbook -
EDIT - Seems to not really be anything to do with ThinSlacko - probably just a peculiarity of my netbook. But I will leave the info here for now anyway...
when I play youtube vids the sound is fine, with good volume, and if I play mp3s from a usb stick the sound is also fine, but if I then use mhWaveEdit to record a wav from the inbuilt microphone I can see the waveform recorded correctly, but when I try to play it back (either in mhwaveedit or pmusic) there seems to be no sound at all.

Just tried this a second time and the recorded waveform looks very strong (even clipping strongly when I raise my voice), but is only audible when the clipping is strongest - and then only just audible if I have my ear right next to the speaker.

The mic meters seem really sensitive, moving in unison with even quiet sounds, so it seems that the mic is working correctly, but maybe mhwaveedit is not processing the wav correctly? I get the same result if I try to record mp3 - I can see mhwavedit processing the wav into mp3 at save time, but the outcome is a file that is barely audible at all, except for some very low amplitude "alien" squeakings.

All mixer settings seem as I would expect, so not sure what else to look at...

EDIT:I installed Audacity to compare the outcome, and it has the same issue as mhWaveEdit. I did get a message that Audacity had a couple of missing libraries (see pic) so maybe that is a clue..

Any suggestions for the best place to find/put these libraries?

After further testing I don't believe my audio recording problem is anything to do with Thin Slacko (unless it is something to do with a bad lib or something similar). I have the same symptom if I test it with Saluki, and also with Linux Mint (although it is fine using Windows XP which is the native OS on this netbook)

The weird thing is that the recorded track which will not play back through the netbook speakers WILL play back through the headphones - and it is nothing to do with mixer settings as a similar file recorded on a Tosh laptop plays fine through both the headphones and speakers on the netbook.

Anyway, sorry for thinking it might have been Thin Slacko! Smile

If anyone has a similar problem I am documenting it a bit further at:

It could be me doing something wrong or
can it be that one need to add something like

pwait=5 for it to boot on slow cheap USB.
I installed ThinSlacko on two USB for to have
as rescue OS in case the HD breaks down on old Computer.

One of the usb booted but not the other. Same code.
Code:

 title Thinslacko 533 4g Puppy Linux
 root=(hd0,0)
kernel /thinslacko/vmlinuz PDEV1=sdb psubdir=thinslacko pfix=fsck
initrd /thinslacko/initrd.gz


The error code it gave where that it could not find
puppy_slacko_5.3.3t.sfs

But when look it is there in the folder so very odd. error?

should I tell it that it is usb in a particular way maybe?
root=(hd0,0) maybe should be root=(hd1,0) or root=(hd0,1)
