Hi, thanks again for coming back ...

I ran the script as advised and got this ...

If you have any problems with this script, mail me
(steve at steve-parker dot org) with the files
/tmp/speedtouch.txt and (possibly) /var/log/messages for diagnosis.
ERROR: Cannot find microcode
Please place a copy of the Microcode in this directory.
This could be :
- the speedmgmt.tar.gz file from http://www.speedtouchdsl.com/dvrreg_lx.htm
- mgmt.o from speedmgmt.tar.gz
- alcaudsl.sys from the Windows software (Eg C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\ALCAUDSL.SYS)
- a .ZIP file (eg ZZZP1.ZIP) from the Windows software
Due to the license, you must obtain this file for yourself.
sh-3.00#

The microcode I used for 4.2 and macpup is in the same folder.

I also looked at the speedtouch.txt and got ...

Starting speedtouchconf.sh script
Version 2.0_12-June-2006
Sun Jul 12 22:44:43 PUP 2009
Called as ./speedtouchconf.sh from /initrd/mnt/dev_save/speedtouchconf-27-Jun-2006
Linux puppypc 2.6.18.1 #1 Thu Feb 1 23:05:39 PUP 2007 i686 unknown unknown GNU/Linux

As I say, I'm not too hot on all things Linux so once again and most grateful for all your help and advice.

Sub_title: Extraordinary Distro!!
 

I've been a Linux Hobbyist for about five years, and have tried out at least 30 different distros during that time. On my HP Pavilion a220n, there's always been one or two flaws in every distro, including Ubuntu, that made me wipe it from my hard drive & try another. Ubuntu doesn't recognize my DVD player. SUSE won't play media files from MSNBC. Mint throws off my BIOS clock, etc, etc. Puppy Linux almost worked but won't play HULU movies in full screen. VOILA! TeenPup does it all!!!! And I luv the prominent clock in the upper right-hand corner of the screen! Great work!

Hello earth,
Thank you for your comments, I hope TEENpup continues to be useful for you.
As with any Linux Distro, some Users will like yourself find TEENpup to be compatible with their Hardware and needs while others with experience lots of problems like those who have posted problems here.

To those who are experiencing problems, Sorry!! Hopefully when ¨TEENpup 2010 Mini¨ which is based on Puppy 4.2.1 is released in September all going well you will find a more compatible Distro for your hardware.

John I wouldn't worry much about it, Teenpup as you've expressed in the past is made for older rigs, If people install the latest wifi modems in a 2006 OS base, who's to blame for the fault? The user for not understanding that the backend is for older rigs, not the latest and greatest. Your 4.2.1 in sept sounds interesting, but If I was, I would build everything in packages or like on a dummy file system, oh you can get one of those dummy file systems at the repo, its basically a puppy file system with all the directories but contain no files, I forget where I seen that, I think pizzasgood made that up.
Anyways the reason for building it that way is well, if you want to use say 4.17 which by that time could be 4.19, It has a better backend but right now its a bit buggy, but being built in a dummy filesystem, you could just drag and drop all you new software/changes all at once and have a new teenpup in minutes. Well just an idea. Kind like how a sfs works.

Hello ttuuxxx,
A lot of the work that was done for TEENpup 2009 Legacy has been transfered to the up coming TEENpup 2010 Mini which has saved a lot of time. So in my way of doing things, I should be able to update TEENpup´s base with each new release. TEENpup 2010 Mini will be based on Puppy 4.2.1 and future releases will depend on what´s available at the time which best serves TEENpup´s needs.
ttuuxxx I value your input, suggestions and knowledge, so keep the comments coming.

G'day,
tried TeenPup2009 on my Lappy - it wouldn't boot. Need to boot it with nopcmcia.
I usually boot (first time with 'puppy pfix=ram nopcmcia')
But once installed you need to change a file...
EASY FIX!
Series 2 has an issue with PCMCIA devices. Just change:
in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts
Change this line about line 20:
include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0x800-0x8ff, port 0xc00-0xcff
to
include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0x810-0x8ff, port 0xc00-0xcff
It should boot now.
Cheers
Martin

Hi,

I read about TEENPup a few weeks ago on distrowatch.
http://distrowatch.com/?newsid=05518

Every now and again I try different distros on my old PC, a PII 450 640mb RAM, but none of them I've tried have performed as well as I'd hoped, or I have problems withcertain apps. CrunchBang Linux Mint Flux and Antix were ok, but performed worse than XP on that machine.

TEENPup 2009 I was really impressed that even using the Livecd it played a 700mb avi file on the hard drive with no problem, the only other distro that I've tried that could do that was geexbox! video is really choppy in normal puppy, maybe that's a xine Vs. VLC thing.

So I finally got round to installing it to the hard drive. I had a few issues with GRUB (dual booting with XP), I had to install again, this thread helped me out
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=37252
I had the inode 256 issue, probably casued by playing with gparted/parted magic, and various *buntu distros on there.

Anyway, thought i'd post to say I'm very impressed, and although I've very much been a distro hopper on the PII 450, giving anything lightweight mentioned on distrowatch a go, TEENPup is looking like a keeper Smile

Cheers

p.s. another odd thing that may just be me, but when I burned it to a cdrw, 1/2 way through bootinf off the livecd it would kernel panic on 2 different PC. used a dvd-rw, same .iso file, md5 correct, and it booted fine.

Hello admars and anyone else getting a kernel panic.
I have found that if I boot up Puppy 4 series live and then TEENpup which is based on the Puppy 2 series on some PC´s I get a kernel panic during boot up.

If I start TEENpup with ¨puppy pfix=clean¨ then TEENpup boots as expected?

Maybe somethings being stored on the Hard Drive which TEENpup reads related to Puppy 4 ???

Hi,
I did think of that, but I tried 2 different PCs which didn't have saved info, and at least 1 time, I used the switch to use non saved settings.

I wondered if maybe it didn't like that media, as it was odd that as soon as I used a dvd-rw it worked. I probably closed the cd session when I burned it to cd, not that that should make too much of a difference, but maybe I left it open, and it didn't like that?

the main thing is, I used the hard drive installed version for an hour or so earlier, and I'm still happy with it Smile

Good work fella, keep it up

Al

PostPosted: Tue 21 Jul 2009, 05:31    Post_subject: problem with xorg and xvesa  

i have a problem installing teenPUP on my old PC. I have a Dell Optiplex GX150. PIII 866mhz 256mb RAM.. and intel 815 for video driver X.X I tried installing using Xvesa, which you can load the generic driver.

xorg(the big gui right?) doesnt work, i tried all the resolution settings but still no go.

xvesa on the other hand, works, but after a few seconds, it will close automatically. And i have to type xorgwizard again.

and of course, all methods failed. I
s there any text based installer for your puppy?..
And by the way, I'm a newbie at linux.

Hi. I've downloaded and tried to run Teenpup 2009 on an Acer machine in our local community centre, and it looks great but I've had trouble getting it to recognise the network card which I believe is an onboard NVIDIA 6100. The autodetection doesn't work and none of the listed drivers for a manual installation seem to either.

I don't have the same problem in Puppy 4.20 or 4.21.

Has anyone got any advice please?

Thanks in advance,

Colonel Panic.

Hi maybe next time please get the acer model number, it should be located on the side/bottom/back of the case. They make so many models its hard to tell which motherboard/network card, anyways I found one acer that uses the Nvidia 6100 and compiled both drivers for you and made the pets. So it might work and might not.
ttuuxxx
ps this is the drivers I compiled

Thanks ttuuxxx, that's service beyond the call of duty. Smile

Those drivers are even small enough to fit on a floppy disk (now I'm without a USB pendrive again, it's my only way of saving and transporting files from home).

I'll try them soon and let you know how I get on.

Best,

CP .

Seconded John, and I want to say that despite that problem I think you've done a fantastic job with Teenpup, especially considering you had to work on it all on your own. If ever a Puplet deserved the phrase "labour of love" this was it.
