Did a couple of vids and uploaded to youtube and wiki

Prt 1 loading Quirky (boot and config)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrQ5tdXteiw

Prt2 setting up after first boot
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DY3kmSX9rdM

With the Gnome media player I had to change the sound from OSS
to ALSA to get the ASF files I created to play with sound

Chat / ATTYM is not working.
First run it gives me the dialog to make a user name and then once I click to to start, it does not open.

Code:
#attym
attym: error while loading shared libraries: libxcb-xlb.so.0: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory

Too early Smile

I guess Macpup will compete within some few days. They have been at it for a while now and kept interest. Wonder if Q will be asble to stay on top.

For me Q works better than Lupu.

Q does Omelette in 5 seconds and Lupu takes twice that time and looks like Dpup and Upup did with wrong nvidia driver.

Q1 now seems to be able to chose the right NVidia driver?

What I like about Lupu is that one can chose among all the browser and other pets very easily even as a noob.

quirky has worked very well for me also. X is working perfectly. 1 thing i have to continually do is reconnect to my wireless network though. if i walk away from my computer, when I return I have to run the network wizard again. I am not sure the minimum amount of time before I get disconnected but I would guess it has something to do with the power management in quirky (just a guess). I did not have this issue in 431. Thank you for your work.

And as an aside, I really like the fbpanel. Very nice. Wink

Seems to do 99.99^.% of what I need, including shutting down correctly.
Why not 100%? It's that damn SM every time that falls short - it is not Firefox. I am not alone in finding this Achilles' Heel yet again, vide supra.

Hehe... see pic. Surprised

Found today May 5, 2010 at Distrowatch. Proof attached!

I myself never thought of BK as a "crator", but perhaps the editor at Distrowatch had a vision... I knew Barry cre-a-ted Linux distros; I didn't know he also crated them! Laughing

I have the greatest respect for people who work in the forwarding and boxing industries, BTW.

The word "crator" does not exist in the English dictionary. However, apparently there used to be a picture of a Christ "Panto-crator" [from an ancient Greek word meaning all-powerful] in the Christian Orthodox Church, in Hagia Sophia, in Constantinople (now Istambul), I think. Nothing to do with boxes or shipping, though.

Back to our Distrowatch editor:

Maybe the editor at Distrowatch is working on a new definition of distros as "crates" -- but very few distros come in actual boxes nowadays!

Maybe he's thinking of the impact Quirky will have on the Linux community -- such as a crater ! Yay!

Enjoy the pun! Laughing

Sage, I agree about Firefox. Most users prefer that one.

I had same problem as you had in Puppy 431 and then somebody told me a bout SNS. Simple Network Setup.

That one in Q1 seems to hold the line while same in Lupu115 doesn't.

So one need to check up on something which was explained in a thread way back some weeks ago. A simple CLI Console thing and it added that feature. IIRC

you probably know it as istanbul but before the world wars it was know as istambul but during one of the wars it lost an arch so it is then became known as istanbul.
it is really amazing what info you can find in the aarfpedia.

Maybe because I am a newbie but I can’t get internet radios to work.... no sound. All the other multimedia e.g. pupRadio works perfectly. I have used Quirky 008 where radios worked out of the box. I am used to listen these radios:

@Sage:

Yep, you're right, it's written Istanbul (beautiful city, BTW). Sorry about that. The corrector stands corrected!

As to aarf's explanation, I'm not sure about losing an "arch" (Smile since I'm using Puppy/Quirky -- or sometimes some other distro --, but I'm lucky that I didn't have any "crates" sent there!

Cheers!

I installed the libxcb-1.0 pet from this forum thread and it fixed it;
