@mikeslr
Thanks for the recommendation, I downloaded the .sfs made by you, and currently in the process of learning to use the new tool. Please recommend me other newbie-friendly encryption tools if got any. I found the Pcrypt very easy to use too.

***edit: I tested the 32 bit veracrypt.sfs in dpup-stretch, the .sfs missed the "dmsetup" dependency. dmsetup is needed in order to decrypt the container.



@radky
Looking forward for your Dpup Stretch Ultimate version!

Hi lizardidi. Just stumbled on your post. Oddly, even with veracrypt neither installed nor loaded, my systems show /sbin/dmsetup. Wonder where they came from?

Will have to boot into dpup-stretch and rebuild veracrypt under it.

Of course, if you really want to keep prying eyes from reading sensitive information, not being able to decrypt them is the way to go. Laughing

Well, if you really insist on decrypting them, try the new version I've uploaded. Smile https://www.mediafire.com/folder/7m55ivwku6fb5/

Isn't dmsetup a lower level command/program

@Max Headroom,

It seems there are no zram tools in the official packages of Debian Stretch.

However, on the Puppy forum, wiak offers an interesting discussion about zram and zswap, and Puppus Dogfellow provides packages for testing this concept in Puppy.

Please see the following link to download those packages shared by Puppus Dogfellow on Google Drive.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=987078#987078

I hope this helps. Smile

Subject description: windows client cannot connect
 

Hi radky

Running 7.5 rc5 and set up a network share using samba simple management. If I use another puppy computer to access the share it works fine. If I try to access using windows 7 explorer it shows the sharename. Double clicking the share it ask for username/pw. Enter root & woofwoof. It returns "access denied" and ask for password again. Entering the pw again just loops the process.

Seems it can't share with windows, any ideas how to fix it?

thanks
wiz

Not sure if this will help you. I made a konqueror.sfs based on packages from PPM, and tested running fine in Dpup Stretch. If you need it can get the .sfs here:

https://www.filehosting.org/file/details/841385/konqueror_4.14.25_32bit.sfs

To use, simply download the file and load it.

Hi radky

This is an update to the first post. Did some additional testing,

I used the same hardware as above and created shares with slacko 6.3. Both puppy and windows clients could access without any issues. Also, used completely different hardware and set up shares with stretch 7.5 rc5. Tried to access with windows 10 client and got the same "access denied" error. This seems like an issue with the samba implementation in stretch 7.5

thanks

Hi radky

UPDATE to 07 Jan samba share issue

issue is:

-stretch 7.5 rc5 samba simple management used to create shares
-puppy clients can access shares
-windows clients can see shares, but return "access denied" error when username and password are entered

Latest test:
-add "guest ok = yes" to samba.conf global section (tells samba no password is required)
-windows clients can now access shares

This seems to indicate samba is not accepting the password from windows clients.

This fix works fine for my use, but would not be good for someone that wants password protection of shares.

thanks
wiz

Hi, all.

Now them; anybody feel like doing me a favour? Smile

Like, remind me how we get rid of the top tray in Stretch? I've done it before, but I've completely forgotten how to do this..! Embarassed

Any suggestions will be much appreciated, guys.

@ fjd:-

Ah, you're right, of course. I forgot; set it to 'Tray 2', then click on the 'Launch' tab & remove all items. Tray gone..... Very Happy

I have nothing against radky using the top tray in the first place - for many, it's a neater way of doing things.....but it just clashes with the radical customizing I tend to subject my Puppy desktops to. (Poor things.... Laughing)
