Regardless of what people think about Saluki being official or not...

If Saluki needs a website, there's an easy option..
and the maintainer won't even need to be all that savvy...

cPanel + QuickInstall

QuickInstall is ridiculously easy to use...
Supports many sites: http://support.hostgator.com/articles/cpanel/quickinstall

Sign up to a good web hosting provider... Which are mostly quite cheap...
All you then need to do is:

- go into cpanel, use QuickInstall to install wordpress, phpbb, wikka, bbpress, etc
- setup wordpress, phpbb, wikka, etc, as you like them (these ones actually very easy)
- set up some 'moderator' accounts for interested people, email them out
- get a (few) domain(s) and set them up to point where yo uwant..

To keep it cheap, you can use one hosting account and domain for the whole thing, sub domains for each site you setup...

http://saluki.com
http://forum.saluki.com
http://blog.saluki.com
http://wiki.saluki.com
...etc, etc..

Just a thought...

I just tried LibreOffice-3.5.1-en_us-2.sfs from http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-lucid, it seems to run fine in saluki.

http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-lucid/LibreOffice-3.5.1-en_us-2.sfs

If it proves to be usable maybe it should be added to the Saluki repository

PostPosted: Wed 18 Apr 2012, 18:59    Post_subject: Lazarus/FPC  

FOR SALUKI ONLY!!! (on a frugal install...) If any of the Lazarus/Pascal developers are interested I’ve created a PET that allows you to create a SFS for the latest stable Lazarus/FPC release anytime a new one is released by Sourceforge. Only skills needed are the ability to download files and push buttons...And I must highlight - for SALUKI only!!! And did I mention...for Saluki ONLY?!!! I’m currently working on the auto-download capability for the current files that are needed for construction - for the time being, you have to manually download the necessary files yourself, but it’s pretty simple as is - just make sure you read the help file if you use the PET. Essentially it takes the required RPM files from Sourceforge, creates directories, modifies the .desktop file, and combines everything into the SFS, and then creates the pertinent md5 file. I used jemimahs’ custom-builder script as a template, but it’s heavily modified...however, it is bash so, in the spirit of open-source-software, it should be
easily modified if need be...you have my blessing to modify as you see fit..I thought about doing it in ‘C++’; would've been much simpler, but then it would've been hard-coded. So I decided against doing it in that way. You can download the beta version here...but please, remember, it's beta...http://www.smokey01.com/saluki/elroy/pets/Laz-Builder-1.2.pet...feedback would be appreciated.

Today I noticed something weird in Saluki.
It might be caused by something I did, not sure.
But the window decor disappears on any window in full screen.
Is there some way to get the window decor to stay on?

PostPosted: Thu 19 Apr 2012, 00:39    Post_subject:  missing window decoration  

Looking around for answers to my problem,
I found out that missing window decorations
is a common issue in Xfce. Some say it is a
conflict with compiz. Can't be in my case because I don't
use compiz and don't have it installed.
However, they say there is a configuration window
in compiz that will let me fix the window decoration
problem.I decide to download it and fix Saluk.

NO GO

Saluki 19 will not do it. When I click on the link to download,
it opens the check dependencies window and closes it and
then it does nothing. I tried 4 times.

I checked the uninstall to see if I missed seeing it load up the pet.
Nope its not there. I also noticed there are several blank lines with
no pets listed. Not sure if they are connected with this problem or not,
but they should not be there.

I find it very hard to use Saluki without window controls.

Pete.

I am adding my name to the list of those who cherish this Puppy and would be sad to see it go.

Thank you Jemimah and the team.

PostPosted: Thu 19 Apr 2012, 12:07    Post_subject:  I found the window decorations !!!!!  

Not sure why, but I found the window decorations for full windows on my panel.
Looking at the panel I see a plug in that is showing the decorations.
I don't recall putting it in because I did not do what it would do.
But it does give me more desk space

Wonderful.

I really like Saluki and will be adding it to all my friends computers when it is official.I know I am one of the
nongeeks with lots of questions, yet Jemimah really listened listened to my concerns. She and added features
that made Saluki work for me. Other forum members have been very kind to help me with other questions.

Thanks to you all.

I always expected Saluki to be Puppy 6. If not, its still wonderful.

WHEN I learn enough, I want to make a remaster of Saluki with my personal tweaks.
I am pleased to know that Saluki is ready to help me do that. when the time comes
And then I'll move on to build my own flavor of Saluki.

Saluki can do it all - from beginners to geeks.

I am already excited about Saluki 2.

Running version 019 on Asus Eeebox with Nvidia Ion graphics card.

Discovered that changing the XFCE Style from "Prudence" to "Prudence Dark" has nasty effect on the screen display and general performance; moving windows like gragging through treacle, and causing radio stream to breakup, machine generally unresponsive.

Return to initial "Prudence" Style setting proved prudent. All again snappy and musical.

Ciao

Is the MD5 Check sum of the kernel source 3.28.sfs correct ?

its listed as :kernel_sources-3.2.8-ski.sfs-md5sum.txt e854ae44ba7974d640f04fd180dc92e2

i have downloaded the kernel source 2 times and get

A672E9046EA2BB07691EAA0ABC47BC67 *kernel_sources-3.2.8-ski (1).sfs
A672E9046EA2BB07691EAA0ABC47BC67 *kernel_sources-3.2.8-ski.sfs


Yes I think the checksum is wrong. I'll check it out.

These changes have made ​​the most Jemimah. I do not understand why.
Code:
 82   #120409 experimenting with minit, i discovered "rm -rf /tmp/*" is killing mingetty. initrd.gz wipes it, have added code to wipe for full hd install at bootup...

My program works with the modem uses for flags directory / tmp.
Not yet corrected the modem did not work.


This is something Barry is expermenting with but it doesn't help us. I am going to roll that one back in the next release.

I'd say Saluki is ready for final release! and YES it should be made available to the public somehow if not selected as Puppy 6 it's just to unique a Puppy to 'die in the forum.'


We need a professional-looking website to make it happen. However, It's not possible for me develop saluki, maintain the website, and provide tech support for a bunch of new users all at the same time. I tried it with Puppeee and it just about killed me.

I can maybe do one and a half or two of those things.

I need some serious community help.



I can do website design - just let me know what you want doing


Anything to do my bit for saluki

D


Awesome. I will send you a PM.
