Currently there is 81 package in repository http://code.google.com/p/alphaos/downloads/list, so spkg_gui starts really fast but I wanted to examine what would happen in case this repository is much bigger. More precisely if there is 5900 packages - this number is not chosen randomly but is equal to current number of packages in Arch Linux repository. Test results are bellow. Mentioned pkgs.list.db is file that has data about all available packages, when you press update button background script actually download and extract that file, and use it for making list of packages (name, version, description).

===================================
81 packages in repository (pkgs.list.db 12.9 KB)

[root@alphaos ~]# time spkg_gui
real 0m1.147s
user 0m0.490s
sys 0m0.037s

[root@alphaos ~]# time spkg_gui
real 0m1.138s
user 0m0.510s
sys 0m0.040s

[root@alphaos ~]# time spkg_gui
real 0m1.198s
user 0m0.480s
sys 0m0.060s

===================================

===================================
5900 packages in repository (pkgs.list.db 84.8 KB)

[root@alphaos ~]# time spkg_gui
real 0m6.382s
user 0m5.290s
sys 0m1.010s

[root@alphaos ~]# time spkg_gui
real 0m5.408s
user 0m5.077s

Root password in Puppy's house ? you are afraid thar your children play the wonderful eighties games or surf on adults sites ?
Oh that distro will be used in factories with at least thousands of people using it on their office desk, computing with Libre office suite, managing their warehouse with.... with.... ?
Managing the staff with, with .... ?
And to issue salaries sheets with ?

I agree, a password is really necessary, But use other LINUX !

I'm not sure what you mean, is there some problem with displaying characters in your language. For that I think you need to find proper fonts.

Pelo, alphaOS is root by default like every other puppy, and like all other it has root password only that password is different - see user account in Help->System configuration

Hi,

I just discovered your work and it seems very good, quite exactly what I needed. Thank you.
I have tested it as a Live CD and i decided to use it on an usb stick with a frugal install but i've got some troubles booting. In fact it just stop without launching X, i think. I get stuck on text mode with just "alphaos: root" and something like "Last connection 15 april xxx 2013". I've passed, i think successfully, every loading (kernel, etc...). I even tryed to use "alphaosx" to launch X but it doesn't change anything.
And, i forgot but i'm using the last version on sourceforge.

Thank you

Bye

Hi hart,
what is your graphic card, if it's redeon see this post
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=698521#698521.
In /etc/rc.conf you can disable Xorg autostart, if you need to fix things before.

Subject description: radeon modules
 

Just an idea.

Maybe add a custom kernel param just for troublesome video cards. Something like module=radeon, and write that to rc.cong.

An Ugly hack for sure and don't know if it would even work, but if no one has a better suggestion...

Next version will have xorg-server 1.14 and mesa 9.1.1, who knows perhaps radeon misteriously
start to work better. In any case target audience for this distribution should be able to fix errors like
this - for example you did it . Razz

New function is added to spkg package manager for converting all PKGBUILDs from current folder to
def scripts supporting Arch core,community,extra repositories Chakra Linux and many more unofficial
PKGBUILD repositories.

Added License and Author information to all my scripts in https://bitbucket.org

Next version is planned for 19 April, without many changes - main is new ffmpeg. After that planned additions
to repository include : vlc, openshot and gmediafinder.

Yes I did, after you put the fix right under my nose Laughing I did learn something though didn't I. And had some fun doing it too. Is that what they mean by “the Arch way”?

Seriously, now that it's up and running I see why others are so enthusiastic. I've just scratched the surface and I really like it. A lot. Especially the package management. It may not be the equal of pacman or gslapt yet but you are off to a great start IMHO.

Best regards

Hi simargl! Eagerly expecting the next version. Smile
However, I have never had success with audio through hdmi on my TV set using alphaOS. hdmi video is ok though, but its pretty useless without audio. Might be some kernel modules not incorporated in AlphaOS. Would love to see that in the next version.

Cheers.
