Iguleder :

Thanks Iggy for that.

There was a post last week about 32 and 64 bit questions.

I will point them here to your reply when I come across it again.

Cheers...and look after yourself mate....Chris.

Iguleder where do I find this .Xauthority file?

It's not in any SFS files I have checked

cp ~/.Xauthority squashfs-root/root

Any chance of a copy of the script you referred to.

Since nobody answered ...

smokey01, .Xauthority file is a file that is created/needed when X server is run with security enabled. Almost all puppies don't do this, so you won't find this file and you can simply ignore it. Fatdog only uses the security mode when you enable the use of graphical login manager.

Anniekin, I managed to get DirectX running in Fatdog64 with nvidia. The trick is to get the correct 32-bit libraries. I installed 32-bit nvidia (using the x86 driver bundle) in sandbox, get all those files and move them under /lib32 - and voila it works! With this, I managed to get wine (and older version no less! 1.3.25) to start and run Freelancer from Fatdog64 Smile
Note: only the userland libglx stuff are needed. Do not install 32-bit xorg or kernel modules - these must come from 64-bit driver.
I haven't tested radeon or intel graphics - but the principle is the same.

PostPosted: Sat 18 Aug 2012, 15:22    Post_subject: retain network settings  

I have to run networkwizard and do auto-dhcp on eth0
everytime I boot up

I tried
rm -f /var/run/dhcpcd-eth0.pid
dhcpcd -h aalo -d eth0

from terminal

Seems like it connects but nothing happens when I try
to reach internet

Maybe I've missed some step that network wizard does?

Does it do some configuration of eth0? ifconfig?

I strongly believe we need a sub-forum designated to Fatdog64.
Having just this topic makes it hard to find specific information.
It would be nice to be able to have separate topics for specific issues, such as bug reports, questions, requests for improvements, etc.
Can you please make it happen?

1st of all, to me Fatdog64 is the best Linux distro.
I set it up on Foxconn NT-A3500 Nettop (AMD E350 Dual-Core 1.6GHz).
It boots and runs fast (from SSD drive).

- After installation of ATI catalist screen resolution went out of range.
- After installation of the LXpanel "Add to Desktop" does not work.
- It's not possible to get only IP from DHCP server and specify DNS IP manually.
- Max screen DPI is limited to 108.
- No GUI to set WatCom tablet, though it somehow works anyway.

Requests for improvements:
- Better description of pets - currently we can see short info and only as a tooltip.
- Click on desktop background should unshade currently shaded icon(s).
- Click on desktop background should close "start"-menu.
- Help on boot options should be visible at startup (I don't have it after HDD installation).
- HDD installation - copy existing savefile and prompt for boot options.
- I had to install Grub4Dos to specify boot options.
(particularly savefile=direct:device:sda1)
- Choice of single/double click mode should be available at R-click menu on the desktop.
- In the new releases, please verify that it is possible to disable IPV6, especially for the wireless.
- Sound card selection - add "test" option.
- "Windows"-btn should open "start"-menu.
- Click on CPU usage in the toolbar should open Task Manager
- Installation should ask if Wifi autoconnect is OK.
- More cursor themes - currently I don't see that app is starting.

Requests for new Pets:
- VMware integration drivers - just to make it easy to try/test.
- TuxCommander - in my opinion it's the best dual-panel file manager for Linux.
Executable for Debian works right out of the box, no libraries needed.

- How to add items (applications, control panel items) to Desktop, how to remove?
- I see appname.desktop files under /usr and /.usr, can I use them to create Desktop items?
- How to create a pet out of existing (debian) package?
- Which directories would survive FatDog update, and which go to a savefile?

As I memtioned in my previous post we need sub-forum Smile

I tested Fatdog64-521.iso with Right-click-6.0.2.pet

My conclusion --->

It mostly works but needs mhwaveedit to be installed
and more icons need to be installed available.
