In response to browser instability .... I (we) have not experienced any using
palemoon on both Tahr 6.05 and Xenial 7.0.1/7.0.4. My wife uses Tahr daily,
primarily on Facebook, with heavy video useage. I test Xenial partially by how it behaves
on Facebook, news sites and Youtube.

Both machines are Dell Optiplex GX620 having either P4 dual core or HT
cpus. Installs are frugal with the Save file on the hard drive. Palemoon
Privacy is set to delete history and clear cache on exit. Cookies are
allowed to remain (since some sites complain if cookies aren't persistent).
Pup-Advert-Blocker (modified hosts file) and Flash player are always used.

Performance never ceases to amaze me Smile The ten-year-old machines are
both amazingly fast and reliable when viewed primarily from the perspective
of heavy browser useage.

Hi.

Don't know, if this is a bug.

I'd just noticed different sizes of the gtkdialog binary in xenial 32bit (704) and xenial 64bit (707):

32bit = 924 kb
64bit = 272 kb

As far as I know, 64bit programs should be some bigger in size, no?

What's the reason for this?

Does it have any effect on scripts using gtkdialog?

What is missing in the 64bit version that is included in 32bit version?

@LazY Puppy: I just noticed a similar large difference between two compiles of libSDL_mixer-1.2.so.0.12.0 in slackware 14.2 today (164K vs. 366K), so I grabbed the devx for each and noticed this was different:

PostPosted: Thu 15 Sep 2016, 18:30    Post subject: WebDAV not working on Xenial Pup
Subject description: Need FUSE and WDFS packages
 

Hi

I am very new to Linux and Puppies. I recently installed Xenial Pup and must I say that its the best OS I have ever used . Speed and utilities are amazing

I just had a small problem in case there some one has a word of advise as to where do I look for cuz Google is not much help ..

I use gNotes for note taking . It has an option to sync with WebDAV server ( I nornally use BOX) ..

When I tried BOX webDAV url . Puppy says that sync add in is not supported on your computer , please make sure FUSE and wdfs is correctly installed .

I am not used to packages on Pupps .. Just want to understand if its even possible to install above packages ..

Good idea, blocking increasing memory from the animated/dynamic ads and trackers before they hit the browser might help.

PostPosted: Sun 18 Sep 2016, 13:46    Post subject: Potential issues / bugs  

Have been running Xenial 7.01 without issues for several weeks. Yesterday I burnt 7.04 and booted up using converted save file from 7.01.

Issue 1: KeepassX (v2)
When auto-filling userID and password any special character that shares a number key is transmitted into the user/password box on the web page as the number. No issue with manual copy/paste.

Issue 2: Samba
After successfully connecting to my wife's computer with a shared directory (Tahr) using 7.01, I can not connect nor even see the share on her machine under 7.04

Happy to provide more info/details if needed.

I discovered that xenial 32-7.0.4 consistently crashes when playing
certain (music) videos (vlc player). Neither 7.0.1 nor 7.0.3 do this.

Sometimes (if I'm quick) I can use Ctrl-Alt-Backspace and then type xwin
to recover. Other times I must shut off power.

If there are logs available that might give a clue as to what's happening,
I'd be happy to check them. I can easily duplicate the crashes.

Edit: The last line of /var/log/messages indicates vlc segment fault.
I proceeded to do some checks:
1. The 7.0.4 iso md5 checks compare ok.
2. vlc video output is set to automatic. I was able to deduce which
output is probably selected by a process of elimination. Only the
VDPAU output results in both actual video and crashes.
3. VLC in Both 7.0.1 and 7.0.3 behave differently. Setting output to
VDPAU results in just sound and no video.
4. Finally, with 7.0.4 I found that VLC output selections of X11, Open GL,
and Open GL experimental all work OK (no crashes). VDPAU crashes
whether or not accelerated video is checked.

The crashes should be duplicated when playing this on VLC at about
30 seconds into the video:

PostPosted: Thu 29 Sep 2016, 21:41    Post subject: audioplayer woes with both deadbeef and vlc in 704
Subject description: vlc was fine for me in 701, didn't try deadbeef on any of the others.
 

filing a bug report: 1000HA asus with 2 gig of ram and a 6 gb swap partition, 1.6 ghz...thing is usually pretty vlc and 32 bit pup friendly, but this time i get the swap file consumed and the machine put out of commision regardless of whether i use vlc or deadbeef for audio. vlc eats the entire swap partition in minutes. i don't normally use deadbeef, was making a large file transfer on the external (slow) drive that held the music files it was playing--i'm more certain there's a problem with vlc.

it shouldn't matter, but i noticed the crash (and the stuttering that preceeded it) occurred when the mp3s were quite large--pretty sure three out of three, the mp3 playing at the time was over 100mb.

deadbeef was playing short tracks, but as i said, there was something else going on at the time (moving an entire old installation from one drive to another).

Did a frugal install to USB from a CD. Rebooted using the USB stick and made the usual changes ( keyboard, language and time) and then left xserver to reboot. Now xserver fails with the following message

Quote:
If you are reading this, then you are at the console without X running.
The usual thing now is to type xwin to start X....
Starting X, specs in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, startup apps /root/.xinitrc...


But no prompt to allow me to restart X!

PostPosted: Sat 01 Oct 2016, 06:39    Post subject: Enabling bitmap-fonts  

EDIT(3 oct 2016) The link is to be 70-yes-bitmaps.conf.

In the Japanese Forum talking on the Tahrpup Japanese edition, we wonder why the Tarhpup(and Xenialpup) disables bitmap fonts.

Japanese forum member thinkpad found that Tahrpup and/or Xenialpup can enable bitmap-fonts following next procedure:
1. Add font directory /usr/share/X11/fonts at /etc/fonts/fonts.conf.
2. Remove the link /etc/fonts/conf.d/70-no-bitmaps.conf.
3. Add a link /etc/fonts/conf.d/70-yes-bitmaps.conf pointing /etc/fonts/conf.avail/70-yes-bitmaps.conf.
http://sakurapup.browserloadofcoolness.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=3190&p=23649#p23646

Bitmap fonts - Courier, Fixed, Helvetica are enabled with this change.
We prefer 'Fixed' font as the default font for the Geany.
