Code:

#    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"

#    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
#    FontPath   "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"


To add any extra fonts adds 10's of megabytes

The fonts are the ones as per statndard Puppy, with the addition of a cursor font in the misc directory.....

If you are interested the additional fonts from the XFree ftp site are able to be added but be warned it takes alot of extra space.

To be honest this may only serve a limited audience,

I was just about to download this and burn a CD when I remembered someone saying that the Buffalo/Broadcom driver w/ndiswrapper is pending for a few more days?

Is that correct?

I have PCI and pcmcia-pccard-cardbus-whatever Buffalo cards and would really like to get them working under Puppy.

Thanks! doc

This version only has support for Atheros based wireless cards....

The wifi dotpup should be online for testing in a few hours Smile

There is none........

This is a different implementation of X than Barry's....He uses the small kdrive server where as this version uses a cut down full install of XFree......read this thread from the beginning.

The wizzards will not work for this version.

Note to self........later release remove video wizzard entries

bladehunter, I finally got your new puppy104-nfs iso and have been playing with it for a while now. Many thanks for the work you've put into it. No problem booting on my i810 Dell laptop and xf86config started up exactly as you said it would.

I'd forgotten what a pain xf86config is, but at least it works - up to a point: It doesn't support any usb devices. I could make a working XF86Config on the laptop with the mousepad working (apparently PS/2 compatible) but not with an external usb mouse (or keyboard).

I did get everything working using a Kanotix generated XF86Config. That gave me an idea. I've been examining the Kanotix hardware detection files (actually slightly modified Knoppix files). These consist of a couple of binaries, a lib file, some scripts, an XF86Config template and a hw database. Altogether adding up to under 1MB.

I copied the files over to Puppy and found that the binaries work. I've almost managed to auto-generate a complete XF86Config that works using the scripts. Just need to figure out how the keyboard/mouse probe works. Some directories are different and the scripts need to be modified for that. The probe has no problem finding the i810 hw and putting it in XF86Config.

I hope to get this code working to replace the archaic xf86config. I'll let you know how I get on. Smile

well, i finally got to trying out puppy-xfree this weekend. runs just fine with 40mb of ram (though i did not compare memory usage with original puppy. maybe will do that later).

a couple of problems i noticed :

1. on a startup, xfree86config is run - but for some reason no config file is written (at least in xfree86 log it complains that no config file could be found);

2. directory /var/lib/xkb is missing. xkb compiled directory is linked to this, and no other keyboard layout can be actived if there is nowhere to put the compiled one. once this directory is created, everything is fine. finally i was able to input latvian characters in pyppylinux ;)

A couple of points

Regards to point 1...xf86config is run and is the script used to generate a XF86Config file and at the end of the script it does ask the user if they want to write the file

Regards to point 2...I fixed that in the version I did with NFS......I created the directories in the iamge file in var rather than var0 but has been fixed

1. that's the problem, i confirmed config file creation, but xfree still complained about missing config file (and there were no files in /etc/X11)

2. nice to know, thanks :)

mmmmm That's interesting....I tested the whole thing many many times...(tho missed the symlink) and has always written the file for me.....Haven't heard anyone else complain about that either

Whilst running xf86config if you switch over to another term what does df report ?

Trying to get Puppy to give me 1024 x 768 at decent refesh rate on i810 system. Downloaded this Puppy version but got no pause, no chance to type yes and puppy booted up just as before with 800 x 600 at lousy refresh rate the best on offer. Am I doing something wrong - I'm a newbie to Linux but think what I have seen of Puppy so far is great.

You sure you downloaded the correct version from www.edgarbrits.net and not from any of the sites on the puppy download page ?

Did you have an existing pup001 file ?

I can state that from a first time boot X will start as there is no XF86Config file.

There is code that even tests for the existence of that file and if it's not there it starts the config program.

anyhow

Once the gui starts press ctrl-alt-backspace

this brings you to a console

type

xf86config

and answer the questions

at the end type yes to save

then type

xwin
