That post might help. Not sure with lupe17. I havent tested with it, but that alsamixer fix worked with previous 2.6.38.2 kernel version. Lupe17 is newer 2.6.38.4 but probably the different /dev sound device location is the problem with that kernel also.

Very Happy Hello,
Leave it to me to forget to check the md5sum... Embarassed
Re-downloading... Cool

@EDIT:
I have D/L it twice more...
Each time I get a 411mb tarball, not 431mb as stated, and of course the md5sums dont match....
Weird thing is the 411mb tarballs matched md5`s thru 2 D/L`s, they were both the exact same thing...
What am I missing here???
Will try yet again, as I want this bad..LOL...
Jay...
@RE-EDIT...I give up...
Tried again, and as you can see, 411mb...


Will try wget and be back...(OK. so I didnt give up!) Cool

puppyluvr, I will start checking on this in a hour or so. I am wokring on Audacious 2.5.0 right now. One or two people have reported problems with the diddywahdiddy server--I will check that and put it on another server--but that will take a couple of hours. Sorry about the problem. Once it works it will be woof_gui that starts the process. I think you will enjoy playing with it once we get it right.

Very Happy Hello,
Here is wget...

I saw 431003759 bytes and thought there it goes...but alas, that is still 411mb..Will let it finish and md5sum it anyhow...
Jay..

Oh, and bones wants a url to D/L Woof from..
Do you know a direct link for the Woof scripts, I cant seem to find one, and have not used Woof since before bones was involved......

The parts of Woof that you need are all included in EZ-Woof-525. Nothing else needs to be downloaded.

I know, but am trying to D/L woof for other reasons...And I found the url in BK`s blog... Cool
Plus, when wget finishes, if the woof scripts are still missing, I will have them elsewhere....

What I`m doing is woofing 525 with the 2.6.38.2 kernel and some other stuff...

I got it, I just wanted to make sure you knew the difference between Woof and EZ-Woof-525. I wouldn't recommend trying to mix them, not at all Wink

First, The download indicator does show 411MB, so that is OK. Second, I downloaded and got the same md5sum.



After confirming the md5sum, open a terminal in the folder that contains EZ-Woof-525 and extract. Right-click -> Window -> Terminal Here. Please do this instead of trying to use the Xarchive gui.

Code:
tar -xvf EZ-Woof-525.tgz


Then you will see



Upon opening the EZ-Woof-525 folder you will see



Click woof_gui to start and you will see the picture below. EZ-Woof-525 *only* uses the Specifications, Kernel and Build tabs.



Upon clicking the Kernel tab you will see the picture below. If you want to use a different kernel, all you need to do is to drag the kernel.pet into /packages-pet before you start woof-gui and it will show up under the Kernel tab.



After choosing a kernel, click Build--there are some more instructions in the first message in this thread.

Very Happy Hello,
Am wgetting it ATM..
Before, when I untarred it, all I got was the "packages-lupu" dir and the 3 package scripts.. No woof gui, no sandbox etc...
And yes, I almost always untar via the cli anyhow....
(Xarchive quite often freezes up with files bigger than 200 mb or so...)
Will get back when wget is done... Cool

Weird. Are you sure you have enough space? The EZ-Woof-525 folder takes 1.1GB. You might use /mnt/home or any other disk with at least 2GB of free space.

I have tried using EZ-woof a couple of times now adding pemasu lupe-17 kernel - i keep running into the same problem, no audio or retrovol in tray and alsa sound wizard doesn't fix it.

Same when I have tried.

What is the correct procedure to use in the kernel tab - i have the two tick boxes checked to remove exotic drivers, should these be left in?

You can experiment. The picture above shows the way it is done for Lucid 5.2.5.

Very Happy Hello,
Partition has 2.8gb free space...after D/L the tarball...plenty of room...

Quote:
@no audio or retrovol in tray and alsa sound wizard doesn't fix it.

A known problem, but I cant ATM locate the posts concerning it, but i think it involves setting up alsa at boot...
@EDIT...see here about alsa:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=517017#517017

Wget is @ 74%...I guess after 2gb today, my IP is "throttling" me..LOL

Just a question for clarity: Does this mean that applications needing audio work and alsa config works, but, there is no tray icon. Do I understand this correctly?

Thanks in advance.

Smile Hello,
Well, I finally got a md5sum match....Yea...
Woofed 5.25 with the 2.6.38.2 kernel, and I am posting from it now..

Commented out Openbox, and edited ect/windowmanager to jwm...
Still defaults to Openbox......LOL
Switched to jwm, working no problems..
No sound icons on tray, but alsa mixer works...
Forgot to do the ppm fix in sandbox3, so quickpet/ppm is broken ATM...
No puppy lucid entries, but `butu repo works fine...

Cool and fun....Gonna rewoof this again, to fix the bugs mentioned...
But other than the ppm, it is fully functional, and fast...
Posting from the "green" dillo ATM...

Well, gonna go do some tweaking before the rewoofing....
So easy and fast to make changes...
Great idea.... Cool

@EDIT:
OK, rewoofed it..
All is working now.. Cool
Alsa, Quickpet/PPM, ndiswrapper, programs, background, themes, retrovol, xcompmgr, transparency, etc....
If I redid it again, it would just be cosmetic...
Worked flawlessly...
Hmmm, what to test next... Cool

Not exactly. Some things are broken. For example: the firewall desktop calls rxvt and there is no rxvt. The default text editor is beaver and there is no beaver. At least they are not in the path.


I just built from a pristine EZ-Woof-525 and

1. Linux Firewall and firewallstate both ran as they should.

2. defaulttexteditor was set to geany and geany opened.

Did you compare your EZ-Woof-525.tgz with the md5sum in the first message of this thread? More likely, you changed something???? And that had unintended consequences???? You didn't add another Woof or anything did you, because there is a script somewhere that wants beaver to be default. You just 1) extracted, 2) started woof_gui, 3) chose the Kernel, and 4) selected Build????

If so, next time please watch the messages very closely as the Build script runs and post any anomalous looking stuff.

puppyluvr, A good day's work, I would say!

Yes, get used to the Woof way of doing things Wink Open DISTRO_PKGS_SPECS-ubuntu-lucid and replace no with yes in front of the fbpanel line and the openbox line. Be careful--the syntax must be exact--no typos! Look on the page 1 and page 2 discussion with tasmod for solution to a further problem. IMHO the easiest thing to do is to leave it like it is, and then boot openbox the first time, save, and then switch to jwm.
