The pup-volume-monitor is started automatically on both Saluki and Carolina by default. It does this with a custom volume-monitor script located in the /etc/init.d directory.

You can find a lot more information about the pup-volume-monitor, including its' source code, from here. akash_rawal is the author of the software. He gives a pretty good description and is good about answering questions.

Good luck in your efforts to localize carolina.


thank you so much for the reply.i will go to that thread and ask akash_rawal about my concerns. i am sorry for any bother. as a loyal fan of carolina, i am looking forward to further carolina release. thank you and all the carolina developers and those who put in effort improving carolina. thank you

best regards

At shutdown, 004 I cannot save to hdd, only to multi-session cd. Is this intentional ?

Hello All.

I'm new to puppy, tried some puppy's and ended up at Carolina, Great Work!
Rightnow i'll give a try into translating Carolina for my native language, Dutch.
As far i'm aware, Carolina is at the base a Offspring to Wary5xx, therefore Momanager should be present? Maybe i'm wrong and missed something?

Thx for all your time and effort!

Regards, Berry.

This version is for made for lucid.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=77215n

I wondered if it would work in Carolina. Did not want to try without asking.

Carolina 004 is very nice. It is running cooler than 003 on my sisters Asus laplop.

Also glad the Sensors Plugin is working now.

Hi Pete,

I installed the GCompris-12.01.pet and it ran flawlessly with the following caveat - it wiped out the majority of the icons in the main menu (see image below). But the program itself ran with no issues at all.

The links for the SFS files and checksum files give a 404 error on the download site.
The Pet package does not get past the robot check and also gives a link hijack error in Seamonkey.
Are there alternative sites for those downloads?

Yes, Carolina is derived from the version you speak of, but unfortunately it does not contain Momanager.

That's odd. Using both the ppm and Firefox, I get no such errors. The pets/sfs files are hosted on smokey01 - http://smokey01.com/carolina/.

Sorry if my statement was confusing.
I was trying to follow the links in the post by Pete22 to get the SFS and Pet files that post indirectly links to.
I guess I am just a bit bored and wanted to get a version of Puppy working with Compiz to show off to some people that so called low spec computers can indeed do fancy graphics on the desktop whereas Every version of MS Winblows keeps saying the hardware is not good enough for that.
At one time, I had Slacko 5.3.1 set up for show. But I made the mistake of updating the files to Slacko 5.3.3 which in turn updated the slackosave and no more working comp-fusion for me.

Carolina does not save on shutdown. The only option I saw was save to multisession cd. I burned a multisession cd, booted, made lots of changes. shutdown, went through the save process. no save file was created. I lost all the changes I made. Booting from this cd takes a long time.
Cheers

I had that problem with a bad download on 004.
Check the iso's md5 to see if that might be the cause of your problem.

md5 is correct. all cd's boot (slowly) but seem to run ok just no save.
multisession cd checks partly used rewritable.

I made a comp for the kids and decided to start them on Carolina-004 instead of XP. Asus P4S533-MX, P4 2.66 Ghz, 748 MB RAM, 20GB HD and frugal install with a save file.

Stripped out a bunch of apps, moved a lot of start menu categories to control panel so they wont screw it up too much, and added GCompris, Tuxmath, Tuxpaint, Tuxtype and a bunch of games all running from SFS.

System runs pretty good and will hopefully keep them off of my comps!

If anyone knows of some more kids apps please let me know.

Also if someone knows how to get SFS's to load without a save file I would really appreciate it. Then it would be bullet proof!

No kids machine is complete without Tuxpuck and Tuxracer (also been re-named several times.). Sometimes the oldest are the best.
Puzzled as to why you are running frugal with that spec and deployment? Would've thought FULL would be more suitable when the purpose is fixed? Adding .sfs s and later calls to increase savefiles, load alternative ditto, etc just makes life too complicated and potentially hazardous? Old 20Gb HDs are two-a-penny, so swapping them over in a caddy is quicker and trouble-free. What say you?
