Just to make sure I have picked yo up correctly in your first post. Files to downloaded are in bold.

1. Download a 412 barebones from http://412collection.co.uk/b-bones.php#bb

One of these: puppy-4.1.2-barebones.iso, puppy-4.1.2-barebones-retro.iso or g_pup-1.2.iso

2. Use these Glibc updates glibc and glibc locales - http://sourceforge.net/projects/mywolfe/files/Pet-files-G/

These are: glibc-2.10.1.pet and glibc_locales-2.10.1.pet

3. Pets from here: http://412collection.co.uk/index.php.

Not entirely sure what pets you are referring to here?

4. (ffmpeg update and xinelib updates): Link: http://101.143.161.76/puppy/pup4/opt/pets/.

Again, not entirely sure what ffmpeg files you are referring to as there are 9 of them excluding the DEV’s and which of the xinelib files should be used

Finally dbus-1.2.4.2-1_dbus-glib-0.82-w5.pet from http://412collection.co.uk/internet.php

Could you just clarify for me the files to be downloaded in 3. and 4. above.

Thanks in advance


Yes the files in bold is correct.

point 3: Any Pets like Multimedia, Office etc that the user finds handy I certainly found may from the different sections are very handy for building a Pupplet.

Point 4: ffmpeg 20100408-0.9 Pet and the Xine-lib-1.1.19-P4-Full.pet

Excellent - good stuff! The D.I.Y spirit blends well with Puppy.

With regard to the post by "oui" I think he was suggesting that older Puppies do not support the EXT4 filesystem.

However, not everyone wants to use the newer filesystems, and I think it's great that you are finetuning some of the older stuff - in particular getting newer browsers to work on older hardware. Its great to have the operating system side of things running lean and fast so that there are plenty of cpu cycles left over for the browser intensive stuff...

Hi Rob

No, its not been down as far as I know and I usually check it on a daily basis. The stats are showing visitors every day for the last seven days. I suspect its just a glitch.

As an after thought. The web stats for 412collection are with Statcounter and if you are using a hosts file in the /etc folder to block advertisers this may prevent 412collection form being accessible. If this is so, search through your hosts file for 'statcounter' (without the quotes) and remove that entry.

Check the post above yours again, I suspect this may be the problem if you have some form of adblock installed.

I have removed the Statcounter code from the 412collection. Could the guys that are unable to access 412collection try again and post back here if you are able to access 412collection or not.

I will remove the Statcounter code permanently. Although it was nice to see who visits 412collection but its more important that visitors can actually access the site.

PostPosted: Sat 13 Jul 2013, 13:40    Post subject: Access to 412collection  

Hi Rob

I removed the Statcounter code which was an external statistics service to 412collection and I know Statcounter can block access if you have some form of ad blocking on your PC.

I have now added Crazystats which is a php script that runs on the 412collection server and, as far as I am aware, should not cause any access problems for visitors.

Just in case this is what is causing the problem I have removed this code as well and it is 6:40PM UK time here. So can you have another go at accessing 412collection and let me know how you get on.

I am also in the process of adding a guestbook which has been installed on the server but this is not accessible from the the website just yet and I will wait until you have access before implementing it. Although I don't think this should cause any access problems.

Thanks for your patience. Stuart
