Still can't get my HP officejet G85 to print a test page.
Printer is seen OK by CUPS via USB but won't print the test page. HPLIP Lite is also installed.

Tried the fixes here, but made no difference.

New JWM window manager looks very good.
Distro is very fast. Will play with it further as regards getting APT/Synaptic working.

Looking forward to trying Woof Alpha7 build tarball so I can make a dPUP and compare it with uPUP.

Sound has gone.
Where? Maybe the Bahamas . . . Smile
I previously reported it as working - it was.
Now x restart and even reboot no sound

- wait one moment
OK ran multimedia/alsamixer and turned up the individual volumes
- the return of sound Smile

Wonder what turned them to 0
In alpha 5 I believe Flash was having sound problems maybe running
alsamixer would be a temp solution?

oh gosh - ranting instead of bug reporting . . .

Hi

Running on EeePc 900A and all seems ok.

Will play more and report - got to work now.

Q1 - is this smp enabled? as my 900A is dual core.
Q2 - can we use existing Opera10.sfs files and similar? (bling etc)

Luvly puppy - woof-woof

Very best regards - Ray

Barry,

Thank you for continuing to develop great software. I have thoroughly enjoyed upup-461 with it's ability to access Ubuntu repositories. However, I've not been able to use either upup-463 or your latest upup-466.

My network configuration of eth0 is not successful with upup-466 or upup463, it worked fine with upup-461. This has not happened before with any puppy distribution except for aragon's Puppy 4.2 SMP 2.6.29.1.

Also, I tried entering a static address and had the following error!
failed to raise interface eth0, failed command was: ifconfig eth0 up
ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or dir

When I reported this problem to aragon, he replied:
Quote:
one possibility is, that the e100 needs a firmware (there's a folder called e100 in the firmware-folder of the src). as i have not upgraded the firmware-files there could be some incompatibleness between kernel-module and firmware. i will try to build the firmware(s) and post them here. as i have not much time atm, this may take some days. sorry. aragon


Thanks again,
Jim
EDIT: Downloaded and tried a frugal installation of upup-466- FULL DRIVERS.iso and had same failure with network installation.

I had also lost sound on reboot of a frugal install.
The systemtray speaker icon showed muted and even after I set it to 89 volume, I had no sound.
Also, ALSA mixer failed to start up. I had not installed anything either.
I did the patch for the mouse scroll wheel, restarted X and the scroll whell worked. But AbiWord failed to start with the desktop icon.
On rebooting, AbiWord worked but the sound again was muted and ALSA mixer failed to start.
Also... and this is not just related to Jaunty Pup, Is there a trick to getting the CD/DVD drive wizard to remember the setting for default DVD reader?
That setting never seems to stay after a reboot.

A lot of Ubuntu packages are not displayed with the Puppy Package Manager.

Even if you browse through all the categories and repos,you won't find the packages you're looking for.

But if you use the search box,they appear. Weird.

Just try to search for 'ubuntustudio' and see for yourself - tons of packages you won't find in any category.

Why aren't those packages categorized?
How to see the full list of Ubuntu packages with PPM?

ok Here we go so far
mime images
I can't stand the flat mimes, That just don't work with my eyes, It takes me for ever to find what I want.
So I installed the puppy 4.0 mimes in /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/ROX/MIME
and deleted the flat mimes in /root/.icons folder etc and have the regular puppy mimes up and running again Smile

Xarchive
I downloaded the Firefox sources so I could compile the latest version for the repo Smile I then clicked on the tar.bz2 file and went and watched the last 45mins of start-trek lol, I came back and good old xarchive was running crappy as ever, still haven't even opened up the tar.bz2 file in 45mins, So I said enough of the, I installed the drop in replacement Xarchiver/pupzip package I made up for 4.2
and within 2 mins it was open, 2 mins later extracted. I wish if puppy is going to use Xarchive to please find a way of updating the tar.bz2 extraction, because its way too slow, and thats one of the reasons why we upgraded xarchive to xarchiver in 4.2.
the package we used is below and works fine in upup.

Valide

I click on the menu icon and it said missing mime, probably because I deleted them from root earlier and placed the mimes back in its traditional local /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/ROX/MIME
but when I clicked save as it crash and disappeared.

I knew it !!! lol That when I went to compile firefox it would give a error about apng, please update PNG with the APNG patch

# configure: error: --with-system-png won't work because the system's libpng doesn't have APNG support.

ttuuxxx

Ps I just reused the ones I had in the repo that we already patched with apng and its compiling now Smile

There is a faint sound after boot. But since previous alpha's I have to raise the sound of front and surround each time in the alsamixer to have the full sound. The setting doesn't stick.

Quite some applications windows are offset (mostly to the right) so I have to drag them completely in the viewable area.

@tronkel: I believe that the HPLIP packages also use the file /usr/bin/foomatic-gswrapper. If so, it will also need the -U patch. Or you could try one of Patriot's HPLIP packages for CUPS 1.3.9.

Yeah, I've got that problem too. Anyone got any idea why sound is dead after a reboot?
