I'm running live pfix=ram.......if I click "test urls" in the PPM most are not working here either. I was able to grab some pets from aarnet.edu.au which is working from here.

Unable to get the Wary repo to appear when configuring the PPM as well.

Otherwise, everything else appears to be working well.

Subject description: pwallpaper in alpha
 

/root/Choices/ROX-Filer/README.txt
Quote:
If PuppyPin has this entry (within <pinboard></pinboard>):

<backdrop style="Stretched">/usr/share/backgrounds/default.jpg</backdrop>

Then that will be the background image. If that line is missing, Rox fills
the background with the current GTK2 theme window background colour.

To choose a backdrop image, right-click on any desktop icon, and there is an
entry labeled "Backdrop..."


workaround for `pwallpaper`

Fresh manual frugal install on my old P3 test computer.Other than the issues with the PPM mentioned earlier there have been no real problems.Internet and sound worked on initial boot and no problem setting correct 1024x768x24 resolution.All settings were retained after several reboots.
Wallpaper Setter not working,as mentioned earlier, so confirmed.

hope it is not too much derail. I looked for an hour or so and failed to find an iso to download.

Is it Saluki that is the Quirky 1.3? Yes I looked at Barry's page too.

Only release history of all the Quirky but no link to the iso.

Most likely it is very easy when one know how to find the link but me failed.

Yes me used the wellminded and wellbehaved search too.

May I guess you kept the pupsave file and it looked if it could update it and decided that you had a too old version?

I did pfix=ram in the end of the kernel line in frugal install and started all new that way and no such error message came up Smile

The guy reported that 'mplayer -vo xv' does not work.

I just now tried it, works for me.

I just did a basic test of PPM, works okay.

Left it at default 'puppy-quirky' repo, chose 'Multimedia' then clicked on 'ffplay' package.

It reported two needed dependencies 'SDL' and 'cf', went ahead and installed them.

Ffplay works.

However, I did discover a bug, that I will fix. 'cf' actually already exists in Quirky, but when I unticked it, so as not to install it, that's where I hit the bug. Just following defaults and installing 'cf', it worked ok.

There is something that I need to check in PPM. The 'SDL' and 'ffplay' packages are in the quirky repo on ibiblio, but not all the URLs offered actually have the quirky files. I chose 'ibiblio.org' which does.

I'll fix these two things tonight.
