14-08-2011 - updated .iso to version 5.0.8:

- Back with 2.6.39-4 kernel
- Update to Ymount 0.9
- earlier feh version
- update downloader

There has been some talk on Barry's blog about possible problems during the build process with woof and 2.6.39.x kernel - i haven't noticed anything missing but then i don't know the ins and outs of puppy that well to tell for sure, this build seems to work ok for me though so i think i will stick with 5.0.8 for a while and see what pans out.

I will have a look through the other dpup threads and see if there are any bugs i can fix on D-lite - theres also a couple of other little things i want to look into at as well - and maybe try and build a pet for printer use.

Hello,
Here is a 'lite' woof build of Dpup Squeeze 5x - I have removed most of the default applications and have done some changes to the core as a few of us in the squeezed bug thread were having problems getting to a working desktop.

I have removed E17 windows manager the default now is Openbox and Tint2 panel (JWM is still there) - there are a few changes from a traditional puppy as the rox pinboard is disabled, meaning no desktop icons - i have made a switch to toggle pinboard on/off in the menu but this is not persistent, the default is off, you can manage your drives with pmount or the excellent Ymount http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=69283

With rox pinboard turned off i have used feh image viewer for setting the background and made a wallpaper setter GUI for it (fehwall) - the wallpaper setter will also set the pinboard background as well so if you toggle the pinboard on/off you will see the same wallpaper background.

Conky is on by default and shouldn't now have any problem with changing wallpaper and the conky background not matching - you will probably need to do some minor edit to the /root/.conkyrc file to set it up for your system and location for the weather script.

I have rolled Rox-filer back to an earlier version as the current version would spaz out when trying to enter the /proc directory when thumbnail images are enabled.

When toggling the pinboard i notice the drive icons were missing when running with out a save file - after setting up a save file they appear ok.

- Kernel is 2.6.39 ( just noticed Iguleder has uploaded a new kernel grrrr)
- apps added: openbox - tint2 - feh - scrot - mygtkmenu - lm-sensors - picscale - midnight commander - unicode-rxvt.

I also added a tint2 theme maker and theme switcher i made but forgot to add menu entries - you can run them from terminal:
theme maker - tint2set
theme switcher - tint2switch

Enable pup-dpup-official repository in the puppy package manager and seach/install mplayer2 for media playback.

There is probably some other stuff i need mention but cant think of any thing else right now.

See top of post for latest version

Big thanks to Iguleder and Pemasu.

Thanks Iguleder Cool

I like barebones, it is a more modular approach to puppy - start with a base then just add / use / update what you like.

Going to give it a shot but its things like CUPS and printer drivers that worry me. Sometimes it is easier to start with a fat pup and take stuff out rather than a thin one and add stuff Smile

Ooops late at night here Stu but to not test your version would be a kind of no no so I tell you result within 30 minutes from now hopefully or I log in tomorrow in case it totally fail.

placeholder for result of test on Acer Netbbok 10" screen D250

OOps sorry it fail to get xwin going. Neither xorg not xvesa works. I have Intel chips but the driver seems to not be there for to get the video going. Locks up and only hard reboot works to come out of it.

Sad though. I guess your version is not made for Netboooks.

The other Squeeze works though but fail with 1024 x 768 and only gives x 600 but that is to expect from Dpup version. Have been like that from scratch. I go to bed now.

Stu90. For getting cpu temp info to the conky, I have used script /usr/bin/tempcpu and in conky.conf there is a row which calls it.

I attach my transparent conky pet here just that you can study how to get cpu temp reading. Extract the pet, check that separate script and conky.conf row howto call it.
conky-1.8.1-transparency-dpup.pet
