Having difficulty in getting the ISO to burn. I don't want to post it until I can actually burn it, and have the live-DVD boot and run...

**update: believe it or not, now I'm getting a POST beeps error from the machine. Too late at night to be messing around inside the case. Back in 18 hours or so.

(sigh) One is tempted to pronounce round oaths characteristic of U.S. Marines, lumberjacks, et cetera...

It will be another day or two before I can upload it--one picture says it all:

F5 and then complete mechanical disassembly, cleaning, and re-seating everything will likely fix it.

Nevertheless...

If the Puppy community wishes to have an office-2.02CE with the fonting tweaked to perfection by yours truly...I must say...votive prayers may help...

@Helen:

Uploaded and available for download. Announcement:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=26674

It undoubtedly carries all the warts of the original; the price for using it is, report what's wrong with it in the thread cited above or, better, here.

I plan to ultimately migrate it, once bugs are shaken out and shortcomings well-defined, once we know what best works for you, to Puppies 3 and 4, which should make it faster and much more capable. But I will not sacrifice stability for the sake of eye candy or the iffy ability to (un-stably) run "leet" programs. I hope this is on the path to meeting your students' needs. --SHS

Helen, more manna from heaven, following the contribution from SHS.

If you would like Raffy's Safepup, as adpated for my purposes, please download a copy of Safepup from Raffy's site. The version I have used has been updated as of Feb. 7. Raffy's site also has an excellent tutorial for modifying and remastering Safepup. Below is the file to download.

Having burned your copy of Raffy's Safepup, download my specially modified pup_213.sfs. This includes the auto-mount USB folder. Bear in mind, you may add or delete as you wish and then remaster the result. I have seen this Pupsafe run very well on a Thinkpad 700x with a PII 300 MH processor.

gola10 from here reported:
Quote:
.. tried to replace on Safepup ISO pup_213.sfs with the one you suggest using isomaster. The iso is build but when booting, there is a Kernel panic message and everything stops.

I had the same result, so this observation is confirmed. is it possible that you have saved the remaster in a DOS/Windows partition? I understand that remasters are best saved in Linux (ext2) partition.

Thanks for all your efforts.

Posted as response to the the thread indicated above by Raffy:

Something came to mind as I read in the post about difficulties with my build of Safepup pup_2.13.sfs. I also encountered a kernel panic when adapting the build for a Thinkpad 700x and found I had to toggle apci. Raffy's original comes with apci=force. I suggest trying apci=on /=off =/force to see if any of those work. There is also the possibility that the upload is corrupt.

Thanks for the quick reply. Could you perhaps provide the md5sum of your pup_213.sfs?

Also, just a typing correction, it is acpi. Smile

For people reading this, the download URL for pistoi0's sfs is
http://minipc.org/kids/

It is to be used only with puppy 2.13 (safepup is built from 2.13).

Hi Helen, welcome to the "kennels". I run a computer suite at a local preschool, and the server you just got edupup from! Hope you like it.

http://www.ecomoney.co.uk/node/101

A group of intrepid souls are developing a package called gCompris, which is an addon for edupup. Its essentially "brain training for kids" aged 2-12, a superb program that our kids love and Im sure yours will too. We could also use a hand testing the latest version thats being put together as we speak.

There is another guy called Sidders from Bolton who is running puppy at a nursery school there too.
