I've just downloaded and installed as a frugal install (straight from .iso) and everything works ok as far as I can tell.

IMHO these would be better icons for the desktop (taken from pizzapup and puppy 1.0.7) That's the only "rough-edge" I can see.

Nice work

I seem to have a pretty serious bandwidth spike since the recent distrowatch article about Grafpup. The domain grafpup.com transferred over twelve gigs just yesterday and the trend has continued this morning. Needless to say, this is a bit of a problem as I'm already nearing the limit for February and it's only the third of the month. Any and all suggestions or other help would be greatly appreciated. I do thank all those who have already mirrored files for me as that has surely helped out a great deal.

GuestToo mentioned using dijjer before. http://dijjer.org/
Description = Bandwidth is a problem for anyone hosting big files. As soon as your music, mp3 blog, or movie gets too popular, either your site goes down or you get hit with a huge bandwidth bill. Worse, the cost and hassle of distributing large media files means that the internet isn't living up to its potential as a democratic medium. Dijjer solves this problem. What distinguishes it from similar P2P tools (like Bittorrent) is how easy it is to use for publishers and users. You don't need to install anything. Just put a file on your site as you normally do, but add "http://www.dijjer.org/get/" to the beginning of your links:

normal link: http://mysite.com/video.mov
dijjer link: http://dijjer.org/get/http://mysite.com/video.mov

I've contacted ibiblio about getting some space there, and a couple other people have stepped forward and offered more space. In particular I'd like to thank Mark Ulrich and David May. I managed to get most of the big downloads pointed somewhere else and that might head it off somewhat. I just wasn't quite prepared for the amount of traffic that would be generated by the mention in Distrowatch, but you can bet I'll be ready next time.

After looking closely at the stats there were somewhere around 170 downloads of either the 101 or the 102rc isos in a 24 hour period, and that's not counting any of the mirrors that were already set up and the bittorrent from linuxtracker.org. This was a little of a shock to me seeing as the grafpup forum had a little over 20 members as of yesterday morning.

I just checked and after pointing the download links elsewhere it seems to be under control again. I'll prbably have to get some more space for February but it's not at critical mass anymore.

Thanks everybody for the suggestions and especially those who have already donated web space.

I just see I called it rc1 , but it is rc2 , as you can see from the md5sum I created on the Downloadserver: http://dotpups.de/grafpup/isos/grafpup_standard-1.0.2rc2.txt
I renamed it now.

The Pheonix (codename for Grafpup 1.0.2) is one of my favourite birds - tastes of chicken (and comes ready cooked). You can eat them for ever but the bone pile soon mounts up. Embarassed

My Guru was intending to start a cross breeding program with the Garuda and chickens . . . but that is another story.

I did not have much luck with the rc Confused - not sure why . . . however I feel grafpup is a great development from Puppy and shows it off well. Look forward to trying it again when next released Smile

How are others finding it? Cool

the error message I was getting: /usr/X11R6/bin/X

hey I suddenly realised I should be trying xwin icewm
been using xwin, xstart and even xwin jwm

let me try that . . .

update::
so eh I boot up again and it asks me questions and boots up into Grafpup? Don't ask me . . . did not work before and now is . . . I am writing this from Opera in Grafpup

Now gonna try to reboot and see KDE (downloaded as a package) to compare with Kennys KDE-Puppy which he tells me can be started from the prompt with xstart icewm . . .

Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

why?

really don't see a reason for this, what was the answer why not?
puppy is open source...


i didn't know that they reject projects...

someone can clarify why they rejected puppy?

I signed at sf.net maybe 2 years ago, and they had some restrictions concerning size. At that time 100 MB I think.

So I think they reject Isos for traffic-reasons.
If you needed more than 100 MB, you could ask them individually for more space.
My current projects are > 100 MB, but they did not make problems (though I never asked if it is ok).
But I think my stuff simply is so unknown, that it doesn't create much traffic, different to Isos.

what abou a retry to host it there?

i check if i find another solution, there are many nice mirrors out there willing to host such projects, perhaps i find one two three Smile

ist it aceptuable for you/us/thepuppycommunity to add small banners on a page to the mirrors providing you/us/thepuppycommunity space for mirroring everything?

just a question...

costal,

Are you talking about banner links to the Puppy Linux sites? Some efforts have been posted at: http://puppylinux.org/wikka/IconsPuppy

Many people have links on their web sites, some are text links and others are image links.

you got me wrong...

many mirror sites are willing to mirror iso's and other files when they are open source and when you put a banner to them somewhere on your page...

you see these mirrors when you download a file on sourceforge....
