I have created a website for iPup. The .org, .net and .com domains were taken by cyber-squatters, so I selected http://www.ipup.info/. This domain is actually just being forwarded to http://www.toddrichardson.com/ipup/, so you can access it either way.

Sincerely,

Todd Richardson

More kernel modules compiled

I have compiled the sis7019 sound driver, Linux-wlan-ng (USB only) and rt73 drivers.

http://www.puppyos.net/news/index.php?m=11&y=06&d=10&entry=entry061110-160925
if its not too much to ask (if it can be done),can rt73 drivers be compiled for ipup separately as a dotpup?

Thank you.

To be perfectly honest, I don't know how. However, that has never stopped me before. I will look into it and see what I can do.

Sincerely,

PostPosted: Wed 13 Dec 2006, 18:50    Post subject:  iPup 1.03  

I have been thinking a lot about the next version of iPup. It has been my "modus operandi" to parallel each of Barry's releases of Puppy Linux with a updated release of iPup. I have worked on the assumption that I need to keep things small. Because of this, I did not include "zdrv" in iPup 1.02. (I assumed that those that want it would get the .sfs version of it.) Am I correct in this assumption? I ask this question because it appears that the 2.13 version of Puppy will not contain xorg. Personally, I use xvesa, so this isn't a problem.

Sincerely,

Todd

Where did you hear that? Barry just made a post in his blog the other day about the Xorg keyboard configuration, so I doubt this. Confused

Todd, AFAIK, 2.13 will have the same 'zdrv' optional package as 2.12.

This is the way it works - what Barry has done is to put all Xorg video drivers (except for a couple) into the zdrv file. However, the Xorg program files are in Puppy 2.12. This shaved a MB or two off the size of Puppy in RAM. Cool

I have been doing some research on toolkits (GTK and QT) and the way I understand it, xwindows (xlibs) is the base with the toolkit sitting on top. With Puppy, (if I understand) ROX sits on top of the toolkit (GTK). How do xorg and xvesa fit into this picture?

Hi Todd,

I really like the your iPup Smile. I'm trying to do the same thing for EduPup that is keeping it as small as possible and install all the stuff for the kids on pup_save.3fs file. So it will be possible to run this distro also on old pc with low ram.
Do you think you can share your packages list ? I really would appreciate it !
I will change something as, for example, Firefox 2.0 for Firefox 1.5.3 so I could install ProCon and some blacklist addon to implement parental control for the kids.

Thanks in advance.
Antonio

I'm using iPup and really like it.! It run really well installed on an old Dell Latitude laptop.

A problem I'm having is installing Flash. After downloading the installer from Adobe and running ./flashplayer-installer I get this error message:
Code:

sh-3.00# ./flashplayer-installer
./flashplayer-installer: line 69: iconv: command not found
./flashplayer-installer: line 76: [: `)' expected, found 2

ERROR: Your glibc library is older than 2.2.
       Please update your glibc library.


I'm not a Linux expert by any means and don't know where to find this library to download or whether installing it might mess things up.

Todd or someone, any suggestions please?

I just tried installing Flash and received the exact same error message. Glib-2.10.2 is currently installed. I will see what I can do about finding a newer version.

I found an answer. Install a slightly older version.

http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash&P2_Platform=Linux&P3_Browser_Version=Netscape4

That seems to be what Mozilla suggests:

http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/linux.html

Todd

Addendum:

If this still doesn't work, install Java first. (I know that it will work after that.)

If you go to a site with flash (hoping that it asks for an older version), you might land at flash7 download (700 KB), and when you decompress and read the readme, it will just tell you to copy

flashplayer.xpt
libflashplayer.so

to your /usr/lib/firefox/plugins directory. That's all!

You can also do a search for flash7 version.

Addition: OK, for your convenience, get Flash 7 here.

Thanks Todd and raffy!

I copied the flash xpt and so files to the firefox plugins directory and flash now works! Not only that Firefox loads nice and fast - in 10- 15 seconds. Thanks very much! And Merry Christmas!

Hello Todd,

I've tried to find your iPup file on your server but found no traces of it.
Is it still available somewhere?

Thanks!

David
