Hello, John!
Thanks a lot for your advices! (BTW, as for me, I'm new to linux, yet I know how to comment out a command in a script Smile )
If I may ask a question more, I'd like to know, whether it's possible to set my default file manager to be konqueror insted of rox.

(Really looking forward to see TEENpup 2010 released...)

Subject description: mjpegtools not working

Hello pinguino,
mjpegtools is looking for version libpthread 2.3.3 when TEENpup's version is 2.3.5 which normally should still work?
You may need to experiment with replacing mjpegtools with another version that hopefully will use the version of libpthread included in TEENpup.

If it was me I'd run TEENpup live and do a little experimenting by install this dotpup see link http://www.dotpups.de/dotpups/Multimedia/ and look do the list till you see mjpegtools

If someone else has a better solution with a way to trick mjpegtools into using the version of libpthread included in TEENpup, please post it here.


Hi John:

I tried the other versions of Teenpup with no success ( Teenup 2008, 2.00, 2.14). They all show the same GLIBC issue compatibility.
I also installed mjpegtools-1.8.0 from the above site (dotpup.de) and no success.
Is there a .pet to upgrade to GLIBC 2.3.5?. I really like all the multimedia tools included in your distribution and is a pitty not to get working mjpegtools.

Thanks,
Pinguino.

I'm really eager to give this a whirl on my macbook (1 year old), but am still in the throes of trying to get the network card recognized on puppy linux 4.x
Given the use of an older puppy linux base, should I just presume that hardware recognition is going to be even worse? Or is it a much more complicated beast than that? I ask because my trackpad works in puppy 4.2 but not 4.3.

Also, can I use sfs3 and sfs4 files? Or do I have to download new sfs2 ones? Any backward conversion available for those?

edit: How do I tell it to load the entire cd into ram?

Hello djdante,
As TEENpup 2009 Legacy is based on Puppy 2.14 which came out in March 2007, you most likely will find it worst with your network card. Only experimenting with give you an answer.
If you have say 1GB of Ram then TEENpup will load itself fully in your ram and you will be able to eject the CD and use your CD Drive. If you have say 512MB's of ram, TEENpup won't be able to fit so it will only run live from your CD Drive.

As for sfs you will need to use ones made for Puppy 2.14. You can try renaming other 2 Puppy series sfs and experiment.

Do all your testing while running live. That way if you break anything just reboot.

You could use my sfs converter I made up for 2.14X, It converts 2,3,4,5 series SFS
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=347434#347434
just rename it to what ever extension by default it makes it program_214R.sfs, but if you don't use the "R" then just rename it. Or and edit
<action>exec rxvt -e /usr/bin/mksquashfs /root/squashfs-root newsfs_214R.sfs </action>
and change it to
<action>exec rxvt -e /usr/bin/mksquashfs /root/squashfs-root newsfs_214.sfs </action>
located in /root/SfS-converter/Convert-SfS/AppRun

Hello John,

I wanted to install teenpup, but I could not find an installer. Does it have one? If so where is it? Or do you only want us to only use it as a live CD.?

I've seen a few references from other posters, but it seems my trials and tribulations with the xserver in TEENpup are not common. I can boot to RAM on the Live CD, do a hard drive format and full install, but booting back to TEENpup on the hard drive is only about 50% successsful as the Xserver fails. Even if I make it on the first reboot after install, it is just a matter of time before the Xserver fails. Usually I try to run Xorg and have to fall back to Xvesa and even it occasionally fails. Even running the tweaks, testing and editing xorg does not help. The system is very mainstream-

Pentium III 700 Mghz, 384 MB RAM, Nvidia FX5200 video

I have installed another 4-5 pups and never see the video problems I see in TEENpup. (I format the drive and MBR between each install.) I wanted a complete OS for an older system with many bells and whistles which is why I tried TEENpup, but for the life of me I cannot get the video stable in this distro.

Hello Diggs,
All my test PC's except for one with an old 32MB graphics card only have the onboard graphics and have never had a problem with TEENpup 2009 Legacy. Have you tried Puppy 2.14 on which TEENpup is based?

With close to 35,000 downloads of TEENpup 2009 Legacy from Softpedia, the reported amount of users having trouble seems low.

If anyone using the Nvidia FX5200 video graphics card can provide any help please do so. You could try finding and installing the xorg version 7.1 pet or was it version 7.3? that was around awhile ago.

Good Luck.

No, I have not tried any early Puppys and like I said, I didn't see other comments about this issue either. TEENpup would be the earliest pup version I have tried and I think that is what is the problem. Meaning, an early version of Puppy is not agreeing with my computer, not TEENpup in itself. All the other puplets I have tried were much later versions (4.x). I pulled out a very old bootable copy I have of Gparted (based of an early version of Gentoo) and it also would not boot into the Xorg xserver and I had to wrestle it into Xvesa.. Seems to be something particular to that machine and early pups. Hmmmm......

Dang - TEENpup appeared to be just what I was looking for too.

Thanks-
