Alternative methods:
[With both of which I use a terminal run whilst in a folder/window in Xfe]
1. If you don't already have verifypet installed:
A program included in a pet file, to verify that the calculated md5sum of a pet file matches the md5 value included within the file.

OR...
2. To check the md5sum for each pet file is OK.
Use the method shown in item 2 here.

p.s. If you type the 1st few characters of a command in a terminal, then hit tab twice...
The full names of all commands beginning with those characters will be displayed.
Then you can complete the name of the one listed that you want.
Ideally you would type enough characters for there to be returned only the single command/program of interest.
[Because there is only 1 command/prog that begins with that sequence of characters]

If you type NOTHING at all, and hit tab twice, you will be asked if you want to display ALL commands.
Type Y and hit enter, and the beginning af a great list will be displayed.
Just hold down <Enter>, and watch the list grow in length.
Release the <Enter> key when the end of the list is reached.

Hii Dennis, I see the need for extra ram and thanks for the helpful explanation about how it works, in the meantime I have installed a new PUPPY3 as a full installation onto sda2 (ext2) partition as you recommended.

Let us know how it works. Personally, I redid my Puppy installation for 4.31 and went ext4. I see better performance through better disk I/O.

I assume you created a swap partition? I'd make one twice the size of RAM.

Rxvt is the default terminal emulator on Puppy, and what you get if you open a terminal window. You'll get a bash shell with a # prompt. It's equivalent to doing Start/Run/CMD under XP and opening a window to a C:\ prompt.

This was an interesting thing to try and to know about but there were no error messages on opening any of the programs.

There won't always be. But I've seen interesting messages running things from the command line, like indications of missing libraries.

It can be a handy tool in your kit.

Hi and thanks for the info on verify. I have had a busy time setting up my photo collection. Xnview is so quick to open thumbnails and enables sorting and batch renaming. I have learnt to be careful with that one as I batch renamed 50 photos the same name by accident and lost 49! Still had them on my camera luckily. I have also been playing with the xnview art package and changing one of my photos into a version that I want to paint. See attached pic.

My internet is not quite so fast with the full install but it it ten times as fast as with Windows so I'm not complaining.

Partition 1 NTFS windows is 10gb,
partition 2 ext2 for puppy is 2gb,
partition 3 is my linux swap and that is 17gb and
partition 4 fat32 is 10gb (thats where I'm storing my photos.

How does that sound?

@CatDude

Just tried your XnView-1.70-version4.00.pet in Stardust 013 but cold not get it to work. Comes up with

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=26125

but under "Options" there is only "General" and clicking on this crashes it. From a terminal I get the attached output:

Any ideas how to correct this?

Hi

@ tazzels
Click on Option (as shown in image default.png below)
then select Browser from the list on the left (as shown in image browser.png below),
and click the check box next to Launch Browser at Startup
You can also choose the Startup Directory, i usually have it set to Last Used.

After making these changes, close then reopen XnView.

It should now look something like that in the image browser2.png below,
you can change the layout via View > Layout
You can also change the size of the thumbnails via View > Thumbnail size

Have a good look around in the menu's to see just what this app can do,
you will probably be quite surprised, especially if you look in Tools > Convert > Advanced Operations
In that, you need to select whatever it is you want to do, then click the --> to move it to the righthand window,
then you will get whatever options appear.

Hope this helps

However, GIMP is really powerful (if you need powerful).

Some time back I found "GimpShop" (for Win98) -- that worked quite well, also -- an open source, GIMP-ized "Photoshop" sorta-clone.
