You have put out some marvellous releases.
Chris.


pemasu's efforts have been exceptional and most Puppy users are amazingly skilled.

Meanwhile, I am one of the few Puppy users whom one may easily overestimate ... Wink

Please stay the course, sir!

Dpup Wheezy is alpha stage testing build. As the first post says. I also explicitly recommended people to test it, rip it apart and brake it and report what works and what doesnt. [S-N-I-P].


oops... my apologies pemasu... I do see those remarks now, in the dPup
Wheezy thread_ : -)

It's time I sent a long-overdue bouquet...    

I rely on a 560MHz, PIII with about 768 MB of RAM, and I have been using this Exprimo series for the last 8 or so months. It is fantastic.

98% of my net use revolves about Firefox, and it hasn't once frozen, spat the dummy, or kicked over the traces. Very Happy I regularly surf with up 60 browser tabs (crazy, I know) yet Firefox hasn't faltered. (To maximize the ram available for apps, I always boot with puppy pfix=nocopy.)

It is sheer joy to surf with this combo of Dpup Exprimo and Firefox. (We're now up to Firefox 15.0.1, it's a dizzying ride just keeping abreast of browser updates. )

I look forward to the next gem from pemasu. Mind you, expectations are now so high .... Laughing

Nice report!

Can you explain what this does, please?

"Puppy pfix=nocopy"

I had never heard of this one.

Hi edoc. I boot from the CD every time, and "pfix=nocopy" tells puppy not to load the .sfs file (containing most of the puppy software) into ram, instead that data must read from the HD as needed. This means that RAM that would otherwise be occupied by the .sfs file (~150MB) is free for applications to use. (It also means that some apps might be a tiny bit slower to start up on first use because they are coming off the HD rather than from ram.)

If you have installed puppy on your HD as a full install, then I think "pfix=nocopy" would have no effect, as it is already the economical way puppy works.

I do use Frugal installs but the "pfix=nocopy" is real good to know should I have an app that needs to run in limited RAM.

Thanks!

nice to see dpup still going on...
gonna be testing it later on today...
hope pemasu gets to intergreat memtest86+ on the iso.
and i will see if it runs on my atom n2600/gma3600 netbook
which is a pain as only fedora17 lxde spin gives me 1024x600,
also for shep/edocs if you want to go the other way and run apps only in ram have a look at "ramdisk gui" this is great for running/testing opera as a example
just unpack the opera .tar.xz into it-100mb is big enough..
ramdisk gui link:-

I have Exprimo running on a Samsung NB30 and a MSI Netbook, so it does handle them fine.

I did have some minor problems on the Samsung with display overlap on sub-windows in Seamonkey E-mail setup (I have a workaround) and the display is dimmed if I boot without AC power (haven't found a way around that as F-key display controls are non-respomnsive).

Thanks for the ramdisk gui link.

I could search through this 144 page thread to see whether it has previously been mentioned, or I could just post away .....

Pburn 3.7.4 in Exprimo 5.X.15 does not generate the correct md5sum. After burning the .iso it offers to check the md5sum, but even after ejecting and reinserting the CD, the correct md5sum is not generated.

Only by leaving Pburn and using the commandline (md5sum /dev/sr0) can I get confirmation of an error-free burn.

Shep. Basically Pburn uses md5sum binary for it also. There is something incompatible in Pburn itself why the Pburn md5sum does not work. I dont have a glue what is behind that misbehavior. Sorry.

If you launch pburn in console, do you get any error messages when it is time for md5sum checking.

It works correctly in some puppies, after ejecting & reinserting the CD.

After launching Pburn in a terminal, I tried TOOLS > DISK INFO to check the md5sum of my CD. It gives the same wrong answer, and there is no error message.

Hi Pemasu,

I thought you might be interested in my modification of Iguleder's buildpkg.
Same ..concept ... you just run buildpet [script-name] from the terminal.
Some sample scripts are in /usr/share/buildpet. I've attached a tarball of the rest of the scripts that I have. A few are new, most are from Iguleders builder tarball.

I hope to be able to make a frontend for this soon, so that there will be a menu entry for it like Puppizard, and also, so you can just click on the script and it should ask you if you want to build the pet.

buildpet and tarball of scripts

Thanks Tman. I will test them soon. Yes, I am interested. Automated and semiautomated building scripts are handy. Thank you or your work and sharing it.

EDIT: buildpet version 0.4 is released.

Previous versions did not work if you did this in the terminal:
Code:
cd /usr/share/buildpet/document
buildpet leafpad.bp

and it only worked if you did something like this:
Code:
buildpet /usr/share/buildpet/document/leafpad.bp

Now it works either way.

I have started a new thread for it as well.. the link is 2 posts up.

PostPosted: Wed 03 Oct 2012, 09:20    Post subject: Twitter Problems with Seamonkey?  

On my Netbook, which I have not yet updated from 5x14, Twitter kills performance in Seamonkey.

Is this a known problem that was addressed in 5x15 or in the other development track of Exprimo?

It only happens when Twitter is open.

Thanks!
