Thank you. I'm actually in the process of testing out everything currently out there on 4.3.1 and keeping what works with instructions to put online soon.

Here is what I'd like to happen:

    We finally get a working Wireshark as that's a big request for this OS.
    We get a nice set of Lib's that actually work with 431
    We have some open source application install tutorials that load/work with 431
    Have the tools to assist with making the OS iso easy to grab or even PXE from


Anyways, anything anyone wants to send my way, please send to me via PM or this thread.

Thank you,
Kent C

I can confirm that these pets will allow wireless printing b/w current HP printers and 4.31/4.32

Cool, I have a printer here I can give a shot and see as it's an HP model as well.

EDIT: Thank you very much! I used the info given from the thread as it's spread, I still couldn't get CUPS to work for whatever reason even though it recognized my HP Deskjet 3250 series, I actually had to add the following for it to work and use the wizard which was at first a little hard to find:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=58421

These: [Both in thread link above]
1. Install libnetsnmp-15.pet
2. hpliplite-3.12.11.pet

Here as well is a link with the results, I'll add this to the list of stuff I will add to help others as that was not a novice thing to get working!

Yes, the setup is not for the faint of heart. Could've never pulled it off without the magic help of rcrsn51, who actually rewrote the pet.

But it is testimony that 4.31 can be dragged kicking and screaming into the current world.

Kent,
Now that I have about wrapped up my upgrade of Lucid Pup 5.2.8 -- 5.2.8.6 -- I would like to return to my long-dormant project that provided upgrade pet packages for puppy 4.3.1. However, I am delighted to see that you are taking on a similar effort, so would prefer to join it rather than appear to compete with it.

My project is here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=483889&search_id=844668963#483889
but the downloads are unusable due to the relatively recent tightening of the limits to attachment size. Now that I have a mediafire account, I can upload those packages to it, as well as create ISO files for upgraded versions of 4.3.1. Or, I can upload them for you to copy into your repository.

The primary package that I do not see in your repo is upgrade_pack_4.3.1.1-20110905.pet, which contains many infrastructure improvements, mainly to harden the boot-up process. I would like to add those fixes to your library and perhaps an updated set of fixes to be back-ported from lucid pup 5.2.8.6 (which will require further verification).

Please advise me on what direction to take with my revisit of 4.3.1 updates. Thanks for your effort to maintain 4.3.1.
Richard

Theres quite a bit of interest in having updated versions of series 4 puppies so any 'pool' of new isos, sfs's or pets that can be accumulated will be well received I am sure.

Rerwin - would you consider adding your mediafire links to your other thread as an alternative to the oversize attachments?

Yes, I plan to do that soon. I just did not want to compete with Kent. But he does not appear to be monitoring this thread these days.

I plan to not only put the packages in my mediafire account, but some ISO files, as I can get to them.

EDIT: I have now uploaded the pet packages originally in the "Simplified ... Upgrade Center" thread to here:

I don't know if it is possible (actually I think it should be quite easy) - but I think it would be really nice to have a host of 431 updates in a single sfs - so that purists could use the original unmodified iso and compatible packages, but other experimenters could simply tack on an sfs and easily gain the update benefits while still retaining the opportunity to go back to 431 pure when desired.
Hope that makes sense...

greengeek,
Keep in mind that an added SFS file would have lower priority than the main puppy file. Any updates to puppy components would be overridden by the original versions of those files.

With the PETs, the user can uninstall any of them, except that the "upgrade" pet would probably be required if any of the others are present.

I have now uploaded a disk image ISO file that I created about the time of the last update to 4.3.11. The only differences between it and the upgrade pet 20110905 is that the latter adds unrar and a minor fix to xarchive. A user can alternate between it and the original puppy 4.3.1 ISO or CDs made from them.

Ok, I would like to understand this a bit better - what would happen if I added a .pet to pup 431, and the .pet contained a new version of a library? Are you saying the new library version from the pet WOULD become active? And would NOT be overwritten by the standard puppy one?

Whereas if that library was installed via an sfs it WOULD NOT become active, as it would be overwritten by the standard lib version?

Do I understand that correctly?

I hope that you fixed the annoying feature of
>>> Aqualung????????

when you played a MP3 file...it would open multi windows
if you weren't looking...when you clicked Multiple songs.

You know there was a JP Puppy 4.3 release..Shinobar???

Maybe you could pinch stuff from there.

Loved your Lucid updates....great work mate.

Chris.
