Subject description: Less than one hour...
 

Dpup487 kernel 3.0.25 now starts on my brand new laptop.
It was just an experience. If an poor user whose linux language in not the cup of tea does it, that gives hope to our latin developers.
There is a lot of people doing that in our forum Puppy, they are UK citizens, two step aheads on barbarians (the rest of the world) Exclamation

MTpaint has a problem with scale, confirmed.
I agree that DPUP487 is a nice Puppy, 237MB sized, i will no trash it. Unfortunately i cant get no... Rolling Stones songs, because audio cannot be activated.
That the problem will all series 4 Puppies, my audio card is unknown.
It lacks realtek and HDMI codec. And there, the user has reached his limits. Sad

MTpaint downloaded, from Dpup repository.
remove buildin not found ?
version 3.44.59 scales your picture as you like, and save it where you decided. Is the matter closed ?
mtPaint-3.44.59-i486-dpup487.pet: 321 K
Only 321K ? ok perfect.
OSMO : data imported from my OSMO in Tahrpup ( copy all XML, to avoid to Fullfill the base again)

Yes, mtpaint pet fixes scale issue, there were several updates after the iso which are applied via script/deltas, check first post for instructions. Good to see that you ran it with a different kernel. Sorry for not having more time to dedicate to some updates, though they would be some minor ones.

PostPosted: Mon 16 Nov 2015, 01:16    Post subject: Bus error?
Subject description: A few applications fail to open with a generic "bus error".
 

So, I'm having a problem getting Geany to open. I NEED to edit some config files and it simply does nothing if I click it's icon or use open as text. Typing "defaulttexteditor" in terminal simply says "Bus error" on one line and exits without saying a word else.I am honestly stumped by this problem. Could you help me figure out what is causing this? Because using Abiword to edit config files feels wierd. Maybe it's the lack of syntax highlighting and line numbers XD. I guess I could use MP on a terminal.

Side note: CUPS refuses to let me login, the password it told me to use dosen't work. I think it might not be receiving interapplication communication, thus I think the "Bus error" might refer to D-Bus.

Subject description: Subject says it all.
 

Mkay, had to reset BIOS for unrelated issue. Now I'm even more stumped, they both work flawlessly now.

I have a different issue now. How come it never asks to create save a file? I keep loosing my settings and applications, so I made a .pet that installs them for the time being. Any idea why this would happen? Is it a bug?

Why am I having bad luck today. DX

I've never had a problem with Geany.
It should ask for savefile too as far as I know.

Good news is, Geany is still working perfectly since I reset my PC and all the "Bus error" messages went away. Still confused about the not saving thing. Like you said it should just work. I'm beginning to suspect the integrity of my installation.

Maybe the files copied wrong to my flash drive. I generally extract the main sfs, init and kernel to my flash drive in their own folder. I have other folders like Slacko,Lucid528,FatDog64,UbuntuInstaller,etc in the root of my flash drive. It uses a custom Grub4DOS multiboot menu with auto list sorting and splash image. Could the fact the files of DPup are in a subfolder (/DPup relative to the drive's root) confuse the scripts responsible for saving somehow? It should'nt though as I specified psubdir=DPup psubok=TRUE pmedia=usbflash pfix=nocopy.

I'l verify the MD5 of the files I copied out of the *.ISO against a known good downloaded copy to make sure they're good. Or better yet, just redownload it, not like it'l take longer then 5 minutes.

PostPosted: Thu 19 Nov 2015, 22:30    Post subject: Bad copy  

Fixed it.

For some reason, the MD5 matched, but downloading a new copy fixed it. Most likely my flash drive had some weakly written information in the flash and rewriting it solved the problem. That was one of the oddest bugs I'v ever seen a disk problem cause. Thanks for letting me know that it did have a save function, otherwise I would have blamed the OS.

I did have to update some stuff to run the newest version of Chrome, Blender and GIMP because they refused to build or start. I compiled a newer version of GCC, libpng, libjpeg, libffi, lots of base libraries, and a few others I just felt like updating or for security reasons. I left the old libraries installed for any applications that need them (ex: libjpeg.so > libjpeg.so.9, leaving libjpeg.so.<oldnumber> in existance for applications specifically searching for it). I guess if anyone really wants the updated libraries it wouldn't be too much of a bother for me to package them.

It's a great OS by the way. The theme is nice, and it seems to run a bit faster then any other version of Puppy Linux on my PC, besides Lucid. Graphics were a bit buggy at first till I tuned the options, but now it runs most things fine. It's the perfect portable Linux installation for my uses. One of the things I haven't seen in other Puppy versions or even heard of before is the Beep Media Player. Does what it needs to and nothing more, plus files opened after another replaces the currently playing item by default.

I see this reply late, but yes, I would like the upgraded packages Smile Or if you can do a remaster you're encouraged to up the version to next one with your updates.
Not sure if you saw but there were some updates post-iso using delta files.
Beep Media Player is successor to old Xmms player iirc, but it's now outdated to, in last update I actually replaced it with Audacious.

playing again with dpup487 for editing a lot of pictures. Sure this little Puppy will be LTS at home, mainly because it's a pretty one.
MTpaint : replaced it with a version without bug, newer... or older. It's no such important. Generally old pets do what you need, when your are not yet a champion of editing.
Sqlite pet loads, but does not start, no matter, this app is available as add-on in browser, i just take a look at it, but i can do my life without, databases sure are useful, but spreadsheets kill them a long time ago, with Lotus 1.2.3 and clones, so easy to fulfill

DPUP 487 is burned on a CDs at home. that is not the case of all puplets.
But Puppy user is waiting for a new start, that is why puplets released recently are occupying the forum. Many of them will be forgotten as soon as they reach page 2. they are even forgotten by their creator.
So my preferred Puppies are burn in a CD

and the "very very best of" is installed i my old laptop. I must say that is DPUP exprimo squeeze-5.X.3.4.12-SCSI.iso: 138 M that i choose, beside Saluki 023.

The defaut of 'Debian' Puppies is the PPM. Either it does nor work anymore, either dependances are huge, perhaps not useful, but the poor french user does not understand what means most of the dependances descriptions

PostPosted: Fri 11 Mar 2016, 19:20    Post subject: The Jessie project soon will come  

waiting for a Debian version being released, i link Dpup 487 to the Wheezy topic here. (sclerosed). The Jessie (Christ) project soon will come, promised by Josejp2424.
Do people really want a Debian version, that is the question ?. Few users are writing about wheezy and Jessy, and those waiting for answers are dead in the waiting room.
"But Jessy himself was broken
Forsaken, almost human
jessy sank beneath your memory like a stone" played the poor canadian singer Confused (Christian Musher was his name)

You're off topic, pelo.
Also, your constant pokes are demotivating me.
So I'll ignore your comments.

Have a nice monologue! Twisted Evil

BFN.
