try this manual method:
converting .pet package with pet2tgz in lucid,

run this in alphaos
tar xvf pet-name.tar.gz -C /

but with this method, you cant do uninstall the pet.

I hope this helps.

Hi all, especially rcrsn51 and simargl,
Happy to report that printing works in alphaOS after installing rcrsn51's printing package and then using ppet to install printer drivers for my Canon MP640 all-in-one printer. Peasyscan also works over the network. For the records, I downloaded canon_mp640-3.20.pet and cups-bjnp-1.0.pet from:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=644110#644110

Thanks guys.

My next wish is to see openshot in the alphaOS package manager Smile

Cheers.

PostPosted: Fri 12 Apr 2013, 23:07    Post subject: radeon video fail  

Hmmm, posted this a couple of days ago - but where did that post go? Grits teeth and tries again. I have run this iso (alphaos4) on a couple of laptops with radeon video. In both cases the system booted but was unusable as X was a mess of blobs. Wouldn't switch to a console, and I didn't see a point during boot where a kernel parameter could be added. I guess this is a 'no modeset' situation. The only way out was to power cycle. Compaq V2000 with Radeon XPress and a ThinkPad R40 with Radeon Mobility. Any suggestions about this? AlphaOS would likely go well on these machines, but sadly this problem means I may never know.

Uninstalling isn't a big matter. Just remove the savefile and a fresh install.
I'll give this a try later. Thank you.
I did notice the driver was for an older kernel though. So don't know how that will manage. Confused

I think you maybe need some firmware file from that package, because kernel module is already installed

Hi gnomic, try to make frugal install and then add nomodeset parameter to menu.lst.

Hey smil99, great news for printing but really all credits should go to rcrsn51

For openshot you can try to make package yourself with spkg -a openshot

https://www.archlinux.org/packages/community/any/openshot/
pygoocanvas and mlt-python-bindings seems like new dependencies (not in repository)

Cheers!

Can you confirm that this is the missing firmware https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/carl9170-fw/, in that case I will add it for next version size is 12KB

For radeon xorg driver you can check /var/log/Xorg.log and see what's used there.

yeah right. why I have ffplay? Smile I think because ffplay requires SDL during compilation process. I add "-- enable-nonfree" because I will not be distributing the results of this remaster. Wink

Latest repository additions: Qt multimedia section based on mplayer phonon backend

yarock-0.9.61-1.spkg
Yarock is Qt4 Modern Music Player designed to provide an easy and pretty music
collection browser based on cover art.



musique-1.2.1-3.spkg
Musique does its best to stay out of the way and keep you focused on the only thing that really matters: Music.
Musique is great for those who appreciate its efficient simplicity. Consider getting it as a gift for kids and other family members that may find other players too complex and cumbersome.


minitube-2.0-1.spkg
Watch YouTube videos in a new way: you type a keyword, Minitube gives you an endless video stream.
Minitube is not about cloning the YouTube website, it aims to create a new TV-like experience.


qwinff-0.1.8-3.spkg
QWinFF is a cross-platform, easy-to-use media converter frontend to FFmpeg. FFmpeg is a powerful command-line utility to convert audio and video file into numerous formats. QWinFF features a rich set of presets to help users use FFmpeg easily without having to manually input command-line flags. Average users can convert multiple media files in just a few clicks, while advanced users can still adjust conversion parameters in detail.

Hello ndrancs,
are those modules needed for QEMU virtual machine, then they should be in separate package
http://doc.opensuse.org/documentation/html/openSUSE/opensuse-kvm/cha.kvm.requires.html

Instead of QEMU I use virtualbox. earlier uploaded sfs module to sourceforge http://sourceforge.net/projects/alphaos/files
