Subject description: link for the qtr4 one does not do anything?
 

Sorry, I am having trouble with above 2 links in kirk's post for vlc.
May have something to do with permissions on spot user?
Any help is appreciated very much.
I am using aurora with no scripts plugin.
But I have approved the forum.
vlc pet link yields universal 403 forbidden message.
other link yields nothing at all?
Many thanks again.

The current one is really OLD

I'm working on Fatdog64-600 right now. Rebuilt all the base packages with T2. Some of the changes will be VLC replacing Xine, Wpa_gui replacing Frisbee, maybe VLMC replacing Kino. The latest kernel, Xorg, Mesa, Firefox, Flashplayer. I'll try to remember to check out cdrecord, it seems like that was replaced by another project.
Right now just trying to kill bugs.

Kirk that is good news. I always have FD installed somewhere as it has proved quick and reliable.

courious what advantage you find using T2 pkgs? and if it is built with T2 pkgs can use prior FD pgks? I have a folder full of FD pets. thanks.

I like the way this is going! Never got along with xine, kino and frisbee, I always looked for other solutions. Well done Kirk, and I would really love the VLMC addition!

I like VLC, but found Xine being excellent, played everything I thrown at it
I would miss it...

@Hans, you can sure build VLMC now if you really need it...

I hope GLIBC & GCC compiler will be updated, so then I can use MKVToolNix in Fatdog64, as per http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=76007

Really? A couple of years ago I tried compiling VLC but got stuck in a tangle of dependencies and simply gave up in the end. Is VLMC different? And is it another plugin/module like VLVC?

PostPosted: Fri 09 Mar 2012, 11:20    Post subject: I can't open djvu's  

Hi, everybody Very Happy
After installing qt3 and qt4 libraries , I've installed the DjVu Librraries PET too but I can't figure out how to open djvu files . Shouldn't it be a djview3 file in /usr/bin/ ? I didn't see one... Can anybody help ?

Good news a new Fatdog is on the way... Thank you for the work...With VLC I can open network streams too , that's why I made it my default media player , keeping xine too alive.
It would be a nice thing if Alsa Mixer could start the digital audio over HDMI as 'UNMUTE' at boot time.
I couldn't do it ...

PostPosted: Wed 14 Mar 2012, 23:55    Post subject: Moonlight plug-in for Fatdog's Aurora browser?  

Hello gents,

I've installed Wowza Media Server on Fatdog64. I am able to stream content from H.264 HW encoders to my intranet. My Windows-based laptops are able to view the streams using the MS Silverlight plug-in. I tried installing the Moonlight plug-in (http://go-mono.com/moonlight/download.aspx) on Fatdog64, but I got an error message saying it's not compatible with Aurora 7.0.1. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Joe

Moonlight always is chasing the ever changing Silverlight. MS$ intends it so I think. so it will never be compatible unfortunately.

Quote:
Proprietary codecs made available free-of-charge for Windows Media Video and Audio, for VC-1 and MP3, and in the future H.264 and AAC, only licensed for use with Moonlight when running in a web browser. Other potential decoders include GStreamer and FFmpeg (used during the development stage) but Novell will not provide prepackaged versions of Moonlight with those libraries, because those decoders have not been granted licensing for the use of patented codec technologies.

Microsoft has released two public covenants not to sue for the infringement of its patents when using Moonlight. The first one covered Moonlight 1 and 2, is quite restrictive and it covered only the use of Moonlight as a plugin in a browser, only implementations that are not GPLv3 licensed, and only if the Moonlight implementation has been obtained from Novell. It also notes that Microsoft may rescind these usage rights.[28]

The second covenant is an updated and broader covenant that no longer limits the covenant to users that obtain Moonlight from Novell, it covers any uses of Moonlight regardless of where it was obtained. The updated covenant covers the implementations as shipped by Novell for versions 3 and 4, it no longer distinguishes Novell from other distributions of Moonlight and expands the covenant to desktop applications created with Moonlight. The covenant does not extend to forks licensed under the GNU GPL (Moonlight itself uses the Lesser GPLv2).[29]

Try downloading a straight firefox/non-Aurora .pet, as I had problems with some other plugins not accepted with Aurora

Thanks ndujoe1 and Aitch for the prompt feedback! I'll give the non-Aurora Firefox browser a try.

Cheers,
Joe

PostPosted: Thu 29 Mar 2012, 15:48    Post subject: FatDog 64-bit Lazarus  

Recently, forum user elroy kindly made an SFS of 64-bit Lazarus IDE and FreePascal (at my request) which I then installed and tested on FatDog 521.

As far as I know, it's the only 64-bit Lazarus distribution for Puppy, and it works perfectly on FatDog 521. (The FatDog DevX has to be installed first) Elroy has done a terrific job.

May I suggest the sfs be made available to all FatDog users via the FatDog repository? When I asked elroy, he suggested I ask the FatDog developers - so here I am.

The sfs is available for 30 days at

Subject description: installing 64bit debs don't work, other things
 

Is this distro built on another distro base, other than something that would be compatible with debian packages?

Also, the cpu monitor nor does the cpu temp package work on the taskbar and firefox stays as a "zombie" process after exiting

is this zombie thing a software or hardware issue?

my specs are:

AMD phenom-II 1075T
8GB patriot 1333mhz CL-8 memory
E-vga 520GT Nvidia GPU
80GB hitachi sata 2 hard disk

Also, I would be willing to paste bin any error logs or what not if some one showed me how(which would be deeply appreciated Smile , if that's needed at all, just a semi-linux n00b here that knows a few cli commands and such, other wise average casual linux user

Thanks!

Believe FatDog is based on T2. From the FAQ's
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/fatdog/web/faqs/Debian.html

You may find many foreign packages (Debian/Ubuntu) that work, however many will not. If you cannot find the package you need in the Fatdog64 repository, you’ll probably need to compile that package from source.
