Hi ziggy

Here is pdingobats - Stardust edition

(Rob, your's is coming)

Edit. I will post the tarball of the font later tonight. I have to edit the font in my shed and it is a tropical 40 degrees in there at the moment! It isn't quite right as you can see in the screeny, but it is only a matter of dragging the points around in fontforge, a difficult thing to do when sweat interupts one's vision! Incidentally, fontforge won't run in any puppy on my main box Sad , conflicting with the graphics card, and the fonts in the app are huge and unreadable. It is a documented linux bug with the radeon driver and the radeon 9200 pro card, no one has fixed yet.

In Abiword, "Create and Modify Styles" crashes Abiword.
There is an updated version 2.8.1 that does not crash.
It took a little while to get rid of most of the gray color.
That was a little to much gray for me.

Hi Zigbert,

I checked the MD5 and then burned a CD-RW and made a USB (formatted to FAT) install using unetbootin (windows) of Stardust 005.

I tried to boot on my sisters' Gateway MA7 laptop with Vistsux and no puppy installed. The boot stopped with "attempted to kill init" whether the CD or USB version was used.

What is going on?

Outtaspam
Does Puppy 4.3.1 boot on the same machine?

I did a frugal install of 005 today and each release is getting better and better. I especially like the new menus and the ability to easily add or remove entries.

Great job....... Smile

Mick
The logo looks great Smile

Truly off-topic: Have you tried Rakarrack. Fired it up yesterday......works well on stardust Very Happy

I made a script to start jack first. Use jack_lsp to find your jack connections (if not the same as mine)
Code:

#!/bin/sh

jackd -d alsa &
sleep 1

rakarrack &
sleep 1

jack_connect system:capture_1 rakarrack:in_1
jack_connect system:capture_1 rakarrack:in_2
jack_connect rakarrack:out_1 system:playback_1
jack_connect rakarrack:out_2 system:playback_2

There has been so much testing of Abiword in front of Puppy 4.3.1, I have no intentions to change this package. Regarding the gray, you really have to change that. Stardust is the gray-pup. Smile

Ok....

I am currently setting up a full install of 005 on the "dino" (remember that one... IBM Aptiva, K6 400MHz, 128 ram..)..and so far so good Smile

This to be the mother-in-laws box.. so lord help me if I get it wrong! Laughing It has been running 431 standard as a frugal install and performing well enough. A full install should be even better and I think it is a little easier for newbies, no need to resize pupsave or such. It has a 10GB drive so that should be plenty.

I think Stardust is good enough for an absolute newbie so we will see how it goes.

I have the E169 Huawei mobile modem connected and it was simple to set up ootb. Posting from it now. Works well.

The M-I-L only wants to do some simple browsing and e-mailing until she can afford a new computer so this will be a good intro machine for her. I will leave her with detailed instructions (and leave my phone off Laughing ).

How is your Mum going with Stardust ziggy? Any feedback?

Cheers.

It may lead you to something?

Am I the only one having difficulty with this iso ?

I've downloaded it 3 seperate times now and each has same md5sum which is different to that given.

I burned a disk to check and it fails to boot early in process.

Disk has same md5sum but not the one given.

Checked each download and they are all 87meg not 99meg as first page.
