resolved

Pnethood was failing due to slowness in my network (wireless distance from router issue). After about a dozen tries I was able to find my shares.

Here is my experience with Pnethood and lamesmbxplorer. Because they have to search your network for shares, their speed is affected by how your network is configured (or misconfigured). OTOH, YASSM doesn't do the same kind of searching, so it's always going to be faster.

Who said wary is just for older computers?

With the QT animate setting enabled on things like menus. When running VLC Media Player and right clicking in the play-list. I find some times my mouse cursor gets changed to a circle with a line though it. Nothing responds to my clicks or keyboard presses or hot-keys but CTRL+ALT+Backspace does its job.

checked into that. ah, how would one go about doing that in the snapmerge? Opened it up, and saw some entries like that which had the # in front of them. Would appreciate any help. Gracias in advance.

All you need to do is uncomment line 106 (i.e. remove the # at the beginning of the line) and comment out line 108 (i.e. add a # at the beginning of the line)

Subject description: Solved
 

I have been using Wary 5.00 small iso.
I have downloaded wary-500-small.iso_wary-511-k2.6.32.28-small.iso.delta

I can't figure out what to do with it!
How do I use it?

{Edit -- Solution from bkhome.org/blog}
Delta files
If you have already downloaded Wary 5.0 or 5.1, delta files are small files that enable you to generate the Wary 5.1.1 ISO and 'devx' SFS files. This is especially good for people on dialup.

You need to have a running Puppy Linux, and look in the Utility menu and choose 'Xdelta file difference manager'. The GUI is easy to use -- just drag-and-drop the old Wary 5.0 file and the delta file and click the 'GENERATE' button. The GUI has a 'help' button to explain in more detail.

Look in the delta_files directory for the delta files to download:
delta_files/

Note: If you are going to try the alternate ISOs on the same PC, be careful to delete the 'wary_510.sfs' file that may get copied to the hard drive. You will find this file in directory 'w5101102.203' in the same partition that has the session save-file. A problem occurs if the wrong one is used, as it contains kernel drivers for a particular kernel.
You can avoid this problem if you boot with "puppy pfix=ram" so as not to use any save-file and run in RAM only, and decline to save the session at shutdown -- this should suffice to test that particular ISO file and suitability for particular hardware.

If you go in the menu, you will find: Utility > Xdelta file difference manager
that is what you use.

This thread should help you: HOWTO use Xdelta to upgrade isos and apps

Hope that helps

PostPosted: Fri 08 Apr 2011, 22:08    Post subject: 4 virtual desktops  

After installing the wary-500-small.iso__wary-511-k2.6.32.28-small.iso.delta and upgrading from wary500 to wary511, I ended up with 4 virtual desktops. Also, the number of desktops could not be changed with the JWM configuration button.

I corrected this problem by making the change to /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal as described in this post

After this change the number of desktops could be changed with the JWM configuration button.

zekebaby, thank you, I'll try that right away, in both Wary 5.1.1 and Spup 099. Much appreciated.

Have you tried Simple Network Setup (SNS)?


I tested Barry's SNS with Wary 511, Spup 099 and Luci 525.
Unfortunately, all of them have problems if I log in to my office desktop (Win XP) via vpn. These puppies either refuse to build up ppp connection or lose network connection or even crash X in a few seconds after the rdesktop connection has established (restarting X helps in the latter case).
I have wired ethernet.
I am sure it is not a vpn issue because if I use Dougal's Network wizard, I can vpn for hours without any problem.

Subject description: Does not actually save the save file; no sound
 

Kernel 2.6.31.14 frugal, booting with lilo. 900MHz, upped to 512MB RAM.

This is the only one of at least five computers, most newer, that will boot wary with lilo - the others cannot find the sfs file.
in the wary511 partition on /dev/hda5, with or without specifying it using append (in lilo.conf).

On exit I answer the usual questions about where to save, choose the default /wary511, and it powers off without saving. Repeatedly.
Puppy 4.31 and Pulp 01 (4.1.2 based) work fine.

i810 video (Xorg) works well here, also network setup is easy, but the i810 (?) sound is not working. It works in pulp (except if I boot with vga=791, because framebuffer somehow interferes with sound, also in Basiclinux). I think sound works in 4.31.

I checked mixer settings and nothing is muted or turned down.

Networking and seamonkey work fine. I have not tested the rest except that it freezes at a blank screen if I boot with vga=791. Pulp lets me boot that way and then modprobe fbcon (or in rc.local) once I add the modules. Wary has the modules already.

Back to pulp for a while. Has anyone else tried to boot wary with lilo?
