I was thinking about Grub2

Is it possible for it to work in Puppy?

GRUB2 can boot a USB in a computer that can't normally boot a USB drive.

Yes, you can use Grub2. Lots of info here http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=45961

Well, xchat insulted me on its first screen.


OMG playdayz, xchat insulted me too! Shocked
But root users aren't to joke with, some of them can modify code! Laughing

So I grabed xchat 2.8.8 source and removed this little condition here from xchat-2.8.8/src/common/cfgfiles.c on line 760 that says:

Code:
   if (getuid () == 0)
         fe_message (_("* Running IRC as root is stupid! You should\n"
                     "  create a User Account and use that to login.\n"), FE_MSG_WARN|FE_MSG_WAIT);


Then I compiled it with some stuff disabled to make it lighter:

Code:
./configure --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --disable-nls --disable-libtool-lock --disable-python --disable-perl --disable-plugin --disable-dbus

I believe that was the line, haven't really saved it after compiling Razz

So yeah here's the striped pet for lupu:
xchat-2.8.8-i486-lupu.pet 246 KB, about 552 KB installed/uncompressed
No additional dependencies needed.

Screenie:

Lupu-511 RC upgrading from Lupu-510
-----------------------------------------------------

All seems well . Sound and Internet work as expected.

Opera/Opera Mail are fine

All installed pets are also working.

I tried XFCE4 pet - it shows promise but I think ICEWM in Lupu-510 is hard to beat. Smile

Cheers

@ Dejan

Your Xchat is really cool, very small size but it got installed under Menu-Network. It should be under Internet right?

Thanks!

Yeah I also noticed it misses menu icon, I can probably modify that, it's the default desktop file that came with it, I'll repack with new menu entry.

Hi all

Sound issues sorted on new box with the use of a old SB live sound card, have set my daughters machine on 511 (wireless sorted once I new what encryption was being used and remembering to save profile) with network wizard. Daughter been using 511 for 8 hours and she cant break it (10 years old, mainly on games, youtube and facebook). Now the wife is having a go (and belive me she can break anything LOL) It is looking very good indeed.

I am still using ayttm on MSN no problem

Cheers

Testing now stu90`s tunapie.pet and audacious. Works fine. Still wonder the big size of the tunapie.pet 17.5 Mb. Are all the dependencies really needed ? When I tested pulseaudio and stream2ip I had to install only one dependency and total install was much less than 17.5 Mb. I had already installed already a lot of libs and dependencies so I am not best person to evaluate.


I already stripped some of the dependencies ubuntu always wants to install, im sure there is further room to strip more out but i don't know about the others for what else is safe to remove but still keep the program working - If you already have lots of dependencies and libs already installed may be best build tunapie.pet with pdebthing on your PC that way you dependency check only against what you already have installed then Pdebthing will only download what is needed to get tunapie working on your PC. Probably wouldn't be able to share the finished .pet as not every one will have the same debs and libs installed as you do but it should cut down on the size. Check out Iguleder Pdebthing thread, i made a little GUI for pdebthing so it is easy to use. Cool

stu90: don't forget Pdebthing only detects built-in packages, not user-installed packages.

There's a good reason for this: packages that were made with it can be shared. I can change this in a Pdebthing update if you want ... maybe another option.

Thank you dejan555, Your polite xchat is now the one in the puppy-lucid repo of Puppy Package Manager. Please remember that the latest index to the puppy-lucid repo is always available in LupuNews and at
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/Packages-puppy-lucid-official Just download it and copy it into /root/.packages--it may be necessary to reboot or to remove any ending from the file.


Here is a version of Aytmm 0.6.1 that is built with Ubuntu binaries. Possibly it could run better than the one that is installed, if anyone could test.

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/Ayttm-0.6.1-Lucid.pet

This might be more stable since it is built with the Ubuntu files. It also contains gnu-privacy stuff, which could be removed to make it smaller--I doubt that the default ayttm has it. I am pushing it because if it did work well it could be in an Instant Update without altering much of anything..

Hi all
Bad news playdayz I am afraid

Just built a new box for somebody and I am trying it out, (card ASRock N68C-S UCC, amd x2 3000mhz dual core chip. nvidia C61[GeForce7025/nForce 630a] (rev a2) on board graphics/sound and 1gb ddr2 ram)

The graphics work perfectly (better than a graphics card) with the 173.14.25 driver, but gnome mplayer or Pmusic will not work properly with the sound, you can set the playlist at a reasonable volume but as soon as the next track starts the volume goes to max, have tried all the settings in alsamixer and no joy, installed vlc as the default sound/play/video player and no problems.


Have tried a SBlive soundcard and everything played OK, went back to luci-219 and no problems with the onboard sound. going to try luci-222 and then the latest woof built version that I did to see if I can find anything else.

Cheers
