Hello, was just wondering if dejan55 sfs installer will work with 482beta 1. I like to have a full install and would like to install related devx.

Cheers

Jason

Hmmm, I have couple of sfs's for kde maybe I could pack into several or make a large one, but I don't know if I'll have chance to upload those big files are much for my connection and bandwidth. I'll see what I can do, it will probably be in sfs, some parts are already up, like that amarok sfs and kopete & kpdf in other thread

ok boss ... working on usability testing. heres the first thing i came across not functioning (which most of it seems to be working great). I can't get puptv to do anything. when you click on a channel it says please wait starting mplayer and then... ... ... nothing.


With puptv, there is a channel changing function. (see the button?) May not be as intuitive as it could be... I can add some tooltips (a little window that pops up and tells you what the button/icon does)

For more channels look in the eyecandy sub-forum under .. um "TV Channels" I think ( Confused )

Cheers

Does 482 use sfs4 files?
Haven't tried but if it mounts sfs4 with -t squashfs it should work.

Worked in 481 full install. The only reason it wouldn't is sfs v-4. (I haven't got 482 yet... I suppose it is sfs-4?... if it is it should probably work anyway)

Hi again, thanks for the answers. I should have just gone ahead and tried it and let you know, as it is I have stuck with 477, as the newer kernel doesn't offer anything extra for my old machine. I did download the sfs installer and it worked with the 477 devx. On another note is there support for ext4 with 477 and 482, I have tried both but was unable to mount my ext4 partitions, but I don't know if that may be some quirk with my partitioning scheme. I also would like to offer any assistance with backgrounds and such, I have some examples of my work on the Lighthouse Pup section if you wish to have a look. Increasing my skills with Gimp and Inkscape is something I have a passion for, so please let me know.

Cheers

Jason

gposil:

Any ideas on the Synaptic errors I mentioned? It is happening on a full hard drive install.

Besides the installer not recognizing all of my EXT3 partitions and the Synaptic errors, things seem pretty darn stable.

Getting ready to do a full install of 482 Beta 1 in a few, if the installer works correctly.

Well, that was quick. Attempted a full hard drive install of 482 Beta 1. Once again the installer fails to recognize all of my partitions.

See Screenshot.

sda 8 is ext 3 w/ Puppy 4.30, sda9 is ext3 w/ 2.14 x and sda 10 is ext 3 (big surprise) w/ another 4.30 install.

Ideas, suggestions, fixes......

jasmac, 482 should recognize ext4 without a problem, 477 will only recognize ext4dev.

James C, i'll check your installer prob now, and get back to you....as to Synaptic problem, my mistake, I will have a patch for it later tonight.

Additional info:

When the installer is detecting partitions, the green "mount" momentarily blinks on sda 1,sda 5 ,sda 6 and sda 8.......but no higher,sda 7 is swap. Then sda 8,9 and 10 do not appear in the installer.

For James C and everyone else using 482, go to the patch directory and you will find 2 patches, they should address any ext4 and puppy installer probs. Please let me know.

http://dpup.org/test/dpup482beta1-2.6.30.5/patch/

Synaptic patch will be up later tonight....

Cheers

Hi guys and gals

Posting from 482 now... on my Eeepc701SD, did a cheat usb install (from inside 430, using Barry's BootFlash USB Installer). My main box is not booting from darn cds! (Idid a cheat frugal of 477 on that, if people need drivers for 477 I can compile on that). If people need drivers on 482 tempestuous' thread is the go (I mentioned that earlier).

One thing on the Eee... with Firefox it's a pain because Seamonkey has the ability to colapse all the bars a few clicks, regaining valuable real estate on this tiny screen. No biggy, I'll install it and tell you how it goes. Smile

Now, I've got wireless going, off to get more drivers. One thing I noticed Guy (probably reported) the list of available network modules is almost empty, I suspect all the drivers are there just the config file needs to be updated.

Cheers
