You have been looking in the wrong place. Rolling Eyes

You can get it from either of the following links. (the first one is usually a lot faster Wink Wink )

kirk and jamesbond,

landlord's machine dumped the harddrive (shop environment, dust). I found him a 16gig flash drive and stuck fatdog on it for him...

All I hear from him is what an improvement your work is over Vista. Thought you might like to know. He's one of those who never heard of Linux before and didn't know there was an alternative to Windoze.

Keep up the great work. Smile

Subject description: Bug? in Hardinfo
 

Hello

I've been using Fatdog 521 on-and-off for a time now and it runs great on my Pentium D so I thought I would try the benchmarks in Hardinfo so as to compare with the results I get with other Puppies.

The results displayed for all but one are "rubbish" so there must be some problem. Should I put it on Kirk's bug tracker, list the details here or try to report it to the Hardinfo team - I think there is a link in the Hardinfo menus?

Thanks for any input.

Will

Subject description: unzip from a tar file?
 

Just wondering..

I can install Firefox updates on my Debian linux box the old fashioned way, i.e. unzipping from a tarball in order to install the latest version.

Would this work for Fatdog64? Or would everything just get lost on rebooting?

Barkingmad,

Hardinfo was development version at the time and does have some problems. I thought it was better overall so I went with it over the stable version. I think the stable Hardinfo only used one core for benchmarks. But I haven't checked for a while.

papos,

Make sure you have the fd64-32bit-libs-6.sfs installed too. Wine is 32bit only.

oldroy,

You can probably use the tarball from Mozilla, but I think you'll need the dbus pet installed, they depended on that the last time I tried. Or if you want to build from source (which takes a while) here's how I configure:

./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-dbus --disable-hal --disable-crashreporter --enable-strip --enable-application=browser --disable-libnotify

Thanks Kirk.

I thought I should report this somewhere in case it wasn't known about. I can give more details if you (or anyone else) would find them useful -- is there a hardinfo project page anywhere? I suppose that would be the place?

Thanks for the responce.

This is a very useful upgrade to the FATDOG distro. I don't know how many others discovered what happens when they click on "Computer". And, there are other subtle additions in Hardinfo as well.

Question
Is there any formal path you are taking or that you want us to take with the issues we find in this Hardinfo version to make it easy for you to provide the developer some feedback? How can we help

Hope this helps
P.S. See the PM

Saw this:

If your having problems with one of these wifi devices: ... You may have to blacklist or delete any rt2x00 drivers that claim this device, supposedly the rt2x00 drivers support it.
Questions
  1. How do I blacklist the drivers?
  2. Is this a boot-time or a run-time effort?
  3. Does the RTnnnn PET do this for me?
  4. Will that PET work on FATDOG V5.21?
Thanks in advnace

inxi seems to get recommended, too, as being slightly more informative than hardinfo...untested, by me, though

PostPosted: Thu 29 Dec 2011, 07:08    Post subject: vlc-1.1.11 pet
Subject description: no srt subs
 

Hi there, I am trying to get the srt subs to work but I am stuck. I know it is/was an issue and the solution used to be changing font, but that does not work for me.

I also tested vlc-1.1.7 in lucid 526, and the srt shows fine. I compared the settings, and darn, no differences, except that the video plays in 'hardware yuv sdl output' , whatever that means. Don't know if this matters.


Any suggestions?



cheers,
Hans

Some DVDs don't have srt files attached

see http://sourceforge.net/projects/dvdstyler/forums/forum/318795/topic/4414213

http://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=76811

Else check settings

Subject description: no srt subs
 

Hello Aitch, thanks for the reply

It's not about dvd's , in fact, it is an mpeg-4 tutorial I captured on how to learn linux for it-support in our windoze based university. Yeah, I am not pullin' y're leg. No linux knowledge due to a decade of windoze.
Nowadays with all those tablets the windoze-reign has cracked a bit you see, and what better to use for learning linux than the os that was brought to life for this sole purpose? All honour to Barry of course.

And one of our collegues can't hear a thing so I made a test .srt. It works well, with xine under fatdog and under windoze-vlc as well so no problem there, it's just the 1.1.11-version. And I compared the settings, and I can't make out the difference.

Tried it yourself? Like to know if I am the only one.
I tried to install the fatdog-vlc-1.1.7-x84-64-pet version but stumbled on missing qt libraries. But that would be logical if assuming that the new 1.1.11 version is the replacement?

Oh, the videolan forum link is about the mozilla plugin, I don't use that.

cheers,
Hans
