V10 is running flawlessly here. It is so painless making my own sfs combo from arch packages using makesfs Smile.
Thanks simargl.

Gnome Mplayer is using dark gtk3 theme by default..

Report about this issue
http://code.google.com/p/gnome-mplayer/issues/detail?id=654

To fix it, you can remove gtk-dark.css from gtk3 themes directory.

Thanks for the tip. Perhaps, the path to this file must also be clearly stated to guide the common user. That is,
Code:
/usr/share/themes/Alpha/gtk-3.0/gtk-dark.css
.
Cheers.

Thanks to smil99 Very Happy Printing to networked HP4500 officejet per his guidance on pages 38 through 41 on this thread.

As usual, all my installs are frugal Grub4Dos on SSD or CF cards in IDE adaptors.

With firefox and some locales out, synaptics, cpu governor, acpid, pm-utils, abiword, gnumeric, and a calculator added to a resquashed combined alpha and extras sfs I'm at 99 Mb. The print package is still in the savefile and I run operas (one 32b and one 64b) in the boot partition accessable to all pups on board. Pacman used to add acpid, synaptics, pm-utils, and the calculator. I manually added abiword, gnumeric and the required libraries as the pacman dependencies for them were HUGE.

At idle on this 2.4GHz core 2 duo laptop cpu use is <= 1% and memory use is 57 Mb. Wireless solid, laptop suspends on lid closure, touchpad touches, and cpu governed. Pretty slick! Time to move it to my Pentium M lappies.

Edited: Above installation moved to 1.6GHz Pentium M laptop with ipw2200 wireless, ALPS touchpad, intel i915 video driver, 1024x768 resolution. Only two changes needed. /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf edited for ALPS edge numbers, speeds, acceleration (expected as I don't use .flsynclient and done in savefile prior to first boot) and for some reason lib80211_crypt_ccmp wasn't loaded for the ipw2200 card though lib80211 was. Needed for wpa keys. Modprobed it, connected, and put it in /etc/rc.conf modules line. Sitting here in opera, roughly 3.5% cpu and 85Mb out of 1Gb used. This will probably be the main pup on these older Pentium M laptops. Fatdog holds that post on the core 2 duo machine.

archly,

What is this "cpu governor" you talk about? The same as "Turbo boost" on windows?

What program do you use, I tried finding it with pacman and packer and I failed!

Could you explain the concept? Faster with governor?

Cpu governors are used to modulate the cpu speed according to demand and thus control heat and fan operation. Many pups have a program to set them up. alphaOS does not but it's fairly simple to write one as a script. There was a thread on these in the original alphaOS board but it's shut down so I'll enclose a couple of them as examples. I like the 'conservative' one on my 2.4GHz core 2 duo laptop. Place the script you choose to use in /etc/init.d and call it from the daemons line in /etc/rc.conf. Make them executable and you can try them out from a terminal and see the speed(s) resulting in conky. On_demand is pretty much all or nothing control whereas the conservative governor is more gradual modulation.

Subject description: 3G USB Modem
 

Why mobile partner is not connecting in AlphaOS. I am unable to install default location i.e usr/local etc. Hence I am forced to install the mobile partner package in usr/share location . I am able to send message. Mobile Signal strength also showing in the partner. However, not connecting. Net result no internet connection to my PC. Any missing file or link file. ? Kindly help me. It is my long pending requirements. Again I tried to install default location by creating directory in usr/local/BSNL_3G. Even though, not connecting the internet with ISP. Please help me for connecting internet through 3G Modem ( Hauwei). I need simple solution. I don't know any programming. Please check with 3G USB Modem and let me know your advise to me.

Please also note that In all other puppy variants, the mobile partner is working fine through Mobile Partner Software and also inbuilt dial up package in Puppy.

I came across a command that used /bin/true

What is this and how do you install it?

Is it somekind of symlink? It feels like some "Linux Magic" to me.

*edit*

Found it, its just an empty script that exits with 0, success

http://alphaos.tuxfamily.org/ and https://sourceforge.net/projects/alphaos/files are all non-existent any more! Is that the end of the road for alphaOS? That seems too bad unless you have a good reason to do so. Enquiring minds want to know why.,,
Cheers.

Anyone got an idea what the md5sum for the v10 iso should be? Downloading to a dodgy usb-connected drive and don't want to waste a cd-r. Can't find an md5sum here or on the alphaos site or sourceforge for that matter.

For the alphaOS_10.0-20130823.iso I get a md5 of
63758a5434d33b3a16eea46cfe27ffc6 .

Installed and working correctly so I assume it's the correct md5 sum.
HTH.

If you click the "i" (i as in information) on sourceforge both
SHA1 and MD5 comes up. The "i" is located at the right just before the
download graph!

Code:

SHA1:

470c4500a573c7ed22ad24d635dca52d82066401

MD5:

63758a5434d33b3a16eea46cfe27ffc6

A litle strange to close it without explanation?! Rolling Eyes

I hope simargl8 will post link to bitbucket if he decides to abandon ship
so someone else can continue.
