Hi all,

For those of you who run LxPupTahr but don't alway check on TahrPup developments, I thought you might want to know about 666philb's pBurn and my frankenstein ffmpeg. See, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=845536#845536 and the following post.

Edit June 11, 2015: Rockedge has compiled an ffmpeg.pet for Tahrpup. You'll find his post and the link to his pet here:http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=850361#850361

I recommend before installing his pet that you browse to /usr/bin and check whether a symlink named ffmpeg to avconv exists. If it does, delete it before installing the pet.

You may need to compile the amd driver for your graphics card - these proprietary drivers are kernel specific and therefore need to be compiled on your system.

There are some pre-made pets at:
http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/pet_packages-slacko14.1/
but probably not for the kernel you are using.

This thread may give you some clues on how to do this:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=93949
You will need to know which kernel you are using, exactly which model of ati graphics card you have and you will need to download both the devx and kernel sources appropriate for the flavour and version of LxPup.

I have to go through a similar process for the nvidia card on my desktop which also needs a proprietary driver.....

Thanks. If I compiled the driver it would be great if I could do it as an sfs as when/if I decide to use this pup on another computer I wouldnt have specific graphics card driver for the one im currently using. Is there a utility around or included in this pup to make that a fairly straightforward thing?

Strange thing is LxpupTahr is accelerated using gallium it said in hardware info. Thats because slacko lxpup is using different kernel im guessing and its going with the slow vesa driver? Gallium is what carolina vanguard detects out the box also.

Hi xstylezx

Assuming you are frugally installed??

Suggest you try replacing the kernel in LxPup with the k3.14.20 one from LxPupTahr - you just need to replace copy 2 files - vmlinuz and the zdrv file - across to your LxPup install folder and then rename the zdrv to be the same as the original LxPup name.

i.e. rename zdrv_lxtahr_15.03.sfs to zdrv_lxpup_15.03.sfs

You could then try the drivers available from:
http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/pet_packages-tahr/

xwin startlxde

is the command

No - tahrpup ships with palemoon - slacko ships with firefox - I've only updated firefox in LxPup because 01micko is taking a (well deserved) break.....666philb is very active and keeps tahrpup up to date.

I kinda discovered my audio problems in Vividpup, and Tahr... (the rattles and the saturation)

I think is Retrovol, because the others pups that i tested with Alsamixer, they had no problems with the audio at all...and with older kernels than Vivid and Tahr.

LxPupTahr-15.05.1 is available to download.

The main changes from LxPupTahr-15.03 are:

- TahrPup Service Pack 6.0.3 included
- Broadcom wl wifi driver now has to be activated (rcrsn51)

Otherwise same kernel (3.14.20) and features so no pressing need to update unless you want some of the above.
