Introducing Macpup Foxy

Macpup Foxy 1.5 is up!!! But the web is in the process of being updated . Until then you can download it from here:

http://macpup.org/foxy15.php

first , Thank you Barry for puppylinux.And thank you TTUUXXx for making the coolest stuff!!!And to Prit1 for the help making this puplet and hosting it!!!


About the name: Macpup + Firefox = Macpup Foxy !!!

Foxy has everything that makes Macpup so cool plus a bunch of extra stuff like, Gimp, Xvidcap,Picasa,Firefox with the Ifox metal theme,Java, Flash 10 beta (DONT WATCH YOUTUBE VIDS IN FULL SCREEN!!!) Audacity,Pawdio Converter,VCL ( by ttuuxxx!!!) Gxine and Xmms.

Extra games : Breakout,LinXtris,Xgalaga,ZaaaxxonRR

Flush-metal theme by ttuuxxx , Several macish backgrounds plus start up/shut down tunes!!!

The story behind Foxy....

I and several friends at work have be running Macpup and I had plug all this stuff into mine.They ask if I would make them copy's so I did . I had some trouble remastering Grub and I ask Prit1 about it.He was so cool and help me step by step setting it up. The remaster turned out better than I had hoped . Prit wanted to see it and I send him a cd. He liked it and put it up on his site as an official Macpup.So everyone else can check it out. Enjoy!!!


IMPORTANT UPDATE!!!!!! MACPUP FOXY 1 IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD!!! As soon as Foxy 1.5 is ready we will have it back up .We are making some changes. Firefox 2 will replace FF3 , all of the same apps will be included . Most of the changes will be in the artwork , It will be a lot less mac-ish.We chose to do ourselves, no one has said anything to us . Sorry if we hacked anyone off.Foxy turned out to be much more popular than I ever thought it would be . Thank you all very much!!

@kayan:

By any chance are you using websites powered by flash? Flash has been known to cause crashes in the firefox in Puppy. I have tried many fixes suggested on this forum, but its still buggy.

PostPosted: Mon 15 Sep 2008, 19:56    Post subject: Macpup Foxy Cardbus Issues  

I love the look of Macpup Foxy. I just wish I could get my old Gateway Solo Laptop to see my wireless or my LAN card. I tried the auto config and get nothing. I tried the ipconfig and got nothing. No eth 0. I am using a RT2500 wireless card that worked great with ubuntu. I tried the wireless how to on the ubuntu forums and got nowhere. I tried the lshw command and it was no recognized. I am a relative noob. Just trying to learn a new trick or 2. Any suggestions?

I never have used wireless with my laptop so I might not be able to help you with this but you probably need a driver for that card .Have a look at this .....

Hmm..

iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions

ifconfig
lo Link encap:Local Loopback

I don't think that Puppy is seing the hardware. I was using WPA and turned it off, rebooted and still nothing. I believe that I need to activate the hardware. How do I do that? That seems to be the thread that I can't find.

Couldn't sleep last night and fooled with it for awhile. In he console I used the modprobe yenta_power command ad then puppy did see the RT2500 and I started installing. 2 issues
1) It seems that the driver in puppy cannot do WPA-the same card in Win 98 does WPA
2)As I was working on the issue the screen went blank and I ended up doing a hard reboot.

I think that #2 was an anomaly. Anybody have any insight on #1?

Glad you like my work Cool
I like the overall look of yours Smile
Maybe the next release use my newer icewm package based on 4.0, its less problematic with older pc's and it looks way nicer Wink

Since you like my stuff so much, I'll maybe on the weekend, if time permits do something for the cause.
Keep up the excellent work and best to you

@chopper , thats more of a puppylinux issue than just a Macpup Foxy one, you might try starting another thread in the "how to" section to get more help than I can give you.

@ttuuxxx, dude you Rock!!!

firefox 3 crashes like it's Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn...

Any ideas?

How can I remove it and put version 2 on there?

Or is Opera more available/stable?

Otherwise I love it... Very Happy

I left seamonkey in cause some have had trouble with firefox3 you can use that if you wish its pre-installed, If you dont like that just do search of the forum for Opera 9.51 or newer , download the dotPet , look in the desktop folder for the file and click on it to install.You will need to edit the .wbar file in /root/ to add opera to the bar.It's a hidden folder just click on the eye on the Rox tool bar to see it.
