Attached is Viewnior 1.3 compiled in TintedSlacko 5.5, along with the buildpet scripts I created to compile it.

Shared-mime-info is needed as a compile-time dependency.

Mick,
if you haven't already, please take a look at buildpet (based on Iguleder's work). In the long run, it will save a lot of time for compiling apps.
Sc0ttman's created a front-end gui for it, which I wish to implement in future versions.

Tman, I was already uploading when you made your post. I will consider viewnior for final.

Thanks.

Minor update of the website. Got rid of the rotating image (relied on a google api) and now have a native css/js film strip, just for a bit of sizzle. Razz (lighter on resources too Wink )

01micko and SFR,

Slacko 5.5.91 on my machine with the often-troublesome nvidia GeForce FX5200 card.

Nouveau driver. No missing menus or graphics

Take a Shot successfully took a shot of my screen.

Live CD with just pfix=ram gives higher FPS but there are some warnings.

Subsequent boot with pfix=ram nouveau.noaccel=1 gives lower FPS but without the warnings.

Nvidia driver bumps the FPS to around 1400 straight away.

Updated from 5.5.81 to 5.5.91 and firefox disappeared!
Apparently the link of /usr/lib/firefox-17.07/firefox to /usr/bin/firefox was passed in pup_rw, so when 91 updated to 17.0.8 the link broke.
If nobody else sees that is probably something I did, otherwise a hack is in order for the final Wink

does it work from a terminal?
Code:
# numlockx off


Works ok here, tested on a usb install, accidentally left it on when I shifted it to my eee, naturally was getting a garbled keyboard! So I flipped it to off in ~/Startup/numlockx and it worked fine.


Tried above and still cannot get numlock turn off on keyboard.
This is Hp P4 with Hp keyboard. Tried changing keyboards. No Luck

Numlockx in /root/startup works just fine in Precise 5.71, UIpup Raring3.99.1, Lucid Three Headed Dog and others. This only distro where I have problem...... I can manuallly press numlock key on keyboard to turn it off. No problem

thanks

Is this normal now for glxgears when using manufacturers drivers?
I remember in the past versions of Puppy, when using the manufacturers drivers, glxgears readings would be much higher.
Is this because graphics control is now being done by Nvidia control programs?

01Micko,
Your latest Nvidia driver 325.45 pet works great for my Geforce GTX 560ti card.

bigpup, "out of the box", yes with newer drivers. They sync to vblank.

To get the higher reading either run export vblank_mode=0 and then glxgears or turn off "sync to vblank" (or similar) in the nvidia or catalyst control centre settings.

Live media saving sessions to media....Just Works! Tested 5.5.91 on 7 PCs; all is well. Thanks

Also, tested the SAMBA PET for Slacko found here. I can share files created on all Live Slacko PCs, without issues, with all other LAN PCs.

Everything OK, on preliminary testing

Sure does make a difference to turn off sync to vblank. A little difference between 60 FPS with sync to vblank on and now with it turned off.
# glxgears
79793 frames in 5.0 seconds = 15958.545 FPS
80002 frames in 5.0 seconds = 16000.376 FPS
80070 frames in 5.0 seconds = 16013.820 FPS
80047 frames in 5.0 seconds = 16009.388 FPS
80081 frames in 5.0 seconds = 16016.030 FPS
80047 frames in 5.0 seconds = 16009.208 FPS

Edit.
This cleared up some streaming video issues.
Probably would have affect on any video play programs.

PostPosted: Sun 11 Aug 2013, 20:21    Post subject: EeePC is Happy  

Test on EeePC booted via the Netboot server in about 22secs. Phenomenal. Still no issues.

BTW my EeePC's RAM use is ONLY 91MB. It seems coincidental that the last 2 digits on the "RC" is "91??? (see Hardinfo report below) How did you manage that. (ha-ha) Laughing

P.S. The customization for the system's utilities is a GRATE-GREAT addition to this distro's understanding and use! Congratulations MicK! Thanks for the clarity which has been added.

Touch laptop report coming next.

Really? Including for pupmode=5?
In which case, there should be no code for pupdesk.flg in init ... OK let's see what's available there:

anikin,

"0" disables it..
Code:
if [ "$PUPDESKFLG" = "" ];then
 echo '...enabled'
else
 #change the message in iso 'help.msg', see further down.
 #modify 'init' script in initrd...
 sed -i -e 's%^PUPDESKFLG=.*%PUPDESKFLG=0%' initrd-tree/init
fi


It's in standard woof. Barry leaves all legacy code there, even stuff from old puppy 2 series. It's disabled.. I checked.
