The non-pae iso is indeed superb for old machines! But really old machines typically refuse to boot from usb. At another thread in the puppy forum member don570 pointed me to plop, which is a little tool which cooperates with grub4dos by adding built-in usb drivers, thus making it possible to still boot from usb devices.
http://www.plop.at/en/home.html

other observation: virtualbox does not boot (perhaps it is becausee of the non-pae version, I do not know)

Double screen setting works overhere. I use a mirrored setting for laptop and tv (monitor), but just tried to define the monitor/tv as left of my laptop and it did work out fine.

I just wanted to say once more that Carolina is my favorite waste of time for the moment. Luuuuuuuuuuuuvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv it!!!


if this distro ever makes it to a raspberry pi compatible OS it will blow everything away.

I also love the virtual keyboard. I can fully imagine that this would do fine on any rooted tablet. If there is anybody on the forum who owns a rootable tablet and wants to make a android/carolina dualboot... then please publish your findings at youtube.

PostPosted: Fri 31 May 2013, 12:36    Post subject: balance?  

A strange omission in many puplets is a balance slider in the audio control, equalizer or similar. Alsaplayer is one of the few players which offers it but it is not available yet for Carolina. But even if it was, it would not be a solution for movies etc.

So, is it possible to add some kind of system wide option for left/right audio channel control? Unfortunately I have no idea yet what kind of program you would need for that.

Ideally you would want to have control over left/right slider, l/r reverse or normal, or perhaps even loudness on/off - in short, the common settings which you can find on a real hardware amplifier

Hi All,

Trying to overcome the problems posed on http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=84617 has occupied my free time so it's been a while since I looked in on this thread. I'm pleased to see continued development and the publication of a new release candidate. After considering all other Pups then available, I remastered the then current 'lina-lite 5 to send to my niece. So I really do appreciate the efforts which have gone into developing a very versatile OS.
I've just downloaded and unpacked 7rc4. So I don't have anything to report or complain about, except the following: The thread is now on page 54. I left off about 3 months ago. Finding where discussion pertaining to 7rc began took about 10 minutes. If Geoffrey or rg66 can remember, it would be helpful --and especially less taunting to those new to the thread-- that when a new rc or final version is announced on the thread's first post, a link there to the post where discussions regarding it will be found could be included.
Other than that, keep up the good work.

Subject description: up and running problem free.
 

Greetings,
Well, I've been trying to get a puppy os working to my liking for five years now and I think this release is a winner. The show stopper with most has been bluetooth. I had to do a bit of tweaking to get it working this time also but its a real winner. All of my preferred software is doing fine also. If anyone knows where I can get a GPHPEdit.pet I would appreciate the info. Kompozer is working fine.

I have a card reader in the front of my computer where I keep my "save" file and then run the Carolina os from the hard drive. That way I can switch hard drives and with the second drive also having a Carolina boot dir they can both access and save to the same file on the mem card. works really well. I run Ubuntu Raring on my main drive but to tell you the truth I really am liking this Carolina os as my main boot.

I have uploaded a delta file for testing the broadcom wl module, it can be downloaded here http://smokey01.com/carolina/rg66/lina-007rc4.iso___lina-007rc4wl.iso.delta

This is for pae only

The non-pae delta should come if and when some issues are sorted out.

delta md5 b632393185b84cb993af3590b491faf7
iso md5 c6612239a3cff3c1da43a62cdb0dfbe5

Feedback would be appreciated, and for older broadcom wireless as well just to make sure it still works.

Thanks to irishrm for testing the pets.

Tested RC4-PAE on every PC I have access to, today. It just works! This has been tested in Live media disc use. No boot-time or display problems.

Full-featured. Great structure. Wonderful with no issues to report at this time.

And, I can see the thoughts you have given with offering both an ISO and a delta which can be used with the prior release in version. This gives us a choice of which is most appropriate for our download need.

Thanks for what you guys have done for us with this effort

Uploaded a delta file to create a non-pae lina-007rc4wl-non-pae.iso, this is for testing to check whether the "wl" wireless driver works, I have no such device to test with, please report any problems.

Has anyone tried rc4wl pae and non-pae? We would really like some feedback on the broadcom drivers before we release rc5.

If Precise doesn't support it I doubt Carolina will, you'll probably have to compile the drivers like you did for Precise. Sorry

Downloaded the full iso's and the wl deltas - applied the deltas and tested pristine frugal installs of both pae and non-pae versions....

in both cases the wl.ko driver was selected and a wifi signal was established

just one thing to note: Frisbee is enabled in the non-pae version but is disabled in the pae version which is rather odd - they should both be the same I would think - and both enabled - otherwise it is quite difficult in the pae version to find how to setup a wifi connection as there is no tray icon to hover over or to right click.

Cheers
peebee

Thanks peebee, good to here they both worked. And thanks to you and rerwin for the pets.

It is strange about frisbee being disabled in pae. I don't recall having that issue but will check it out and make sure it's sorted for rc5.

If anyone else has this issue, frisbee is in control panel under network

Update: Tried rc4wl from usb on wired desktop, frisbee was enabled and recieved an ip

Tried on laptop, frisbee was enabled and after entering a password wireless was working.
