PostPosted: Sun 25 May 2014, 04:07    Post subject:  NEW Dpup Wheezy-EmCE
Subject description: yet another Dpup Wheezy!!
 

Here is another Dpup Wheezy I built. not much different from the previous one. It has:

kernel-3.14.2-EmSee-pae
wine-1.7.17, QQ2013
Jack
Jack-rack/eq/mixer
python2.7
cups 1.5.3
vlc
zarfy
about 406mb

It is a stepping-stone build. But very functional.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4GhZVmB2RkwYzhKNWpsRlBSbm8/edit?usp=1

QQ2013 is normally a .deb package which decompresses to 500mb as it has a 200mb tar.gz compressed and patched wine prefix, I got rid of the tar.gz saving 200mb....plus some optimisations so that wine (36mb pet) uses the same prefix - by making ~/.wine a symlink to ~/.longene/qq, so you can see it is a relatively small puppy!

EDIT: I found that jackd is running on startup so in order to get sound with vlc etc open a terminal and type killall jackd !

Very Happy

looks great !

Would like to know shortly the advantages of kernel-3.14 ÷ 3.5 ..?
As also if a devx-wheezy-3.14.2 would follow ?

Installed: the xf86-input-wacom driver (i.e. wacom_drv.so ) compiled for wheezy-3.5.2.11 (version 0.17.0): running OK together with a wacom MTE-450 tablet.

About sound: did alsa been wiped off and replaced by jack ?
Quote:
...etc open a terminal and type killall jackd !

the usual loudspeaker applet is missing ... Shocked
Are some jack dependencies missing ? and need to be installed?
I tried to use timidity without succes; i believe i should have to adapt the timidity server launch command for jack:
i'll try this code
Code:
timidity -iA -B2,8 [b]-Oj[/b] -EFreverb=0&

in place of
Code:
timidity -iA -B2,8 [b]-Os[/b] -EFreverb=0&


I appreciate FF29.0.1 !
I don't miss Abiword wordprocesor, because using another one.

Thanks anyway!
Charlie

Subject description: well
 

Alsa is still there, you can use alsa-mixer in a terminal. retrovol is gone. on my laptop i use Fn key +F8 vol up and F7 vol down. I intend to use qasmixer as default mixer at next stage of development..

All I know about newer kernels is that they have more of the realtime patch integrated, and also have better management of memory, also use of id handles, and a lot more hardware supported, plus deprecated stuff removed. I am all for frequent updates of the kernel ... for me that means a ew build for each new kernel ... it is much quicker than messing around with the initr and base sfs.

DevxWheezy: I accidentally deleted the wrong woof-ce folder with the iso and devx in it....but later I built a new DpupWheezy with kernel 3.14.4-EmSee-pae and I am using the devx-wheezy-3.5.*-18 from that I will post a link after uploading.

Jack is fully functional just type jackd -d alsa in a terminal; jack-mixer has missing dependencies - there are other apps which i removed from the menu which also lack deps! I though i had removed jack-mixer from the menu!!!

I have never used timidity. So I cannot advise!

Cheers for the feedback, glad you can use it.

I'll let you know soon, but maybe only one was deleted.

The more I use this latest Dpup the more I love it - solid as anything, Nothing fancy but reliable and sublime!

It's a keeper folks!

Hi stemsee,
Just curious to know where to download the zzwheezy-utilities.pet package that comes embedded?

As also if a kernel-3.14.2.pet or -3.14.4.pet would be in the possibility to be downloadable in a while .. Smile ?

Thanks for any answer
Charlie

PostPosted: Tue 27 May 2014, 11:11    Post subject: Saucy Salamandar EmCE kernel 3.15-rc6
Subject description: uploading now
 

I just built Saucy Salamandar EmSee community Edition with kernel 3.15-rc6

I stripped quite a lot of progs out so it's 145mb iso. I am trying to get down to a base system i can use to load any base sfs from any puppy wihout duplicate drivers/files messing up the system.

This is a first run and the kernel only sees 800mb (i missed the pae button i guess)

But it runs fast, really fast - like a grey hound.

When I have finished uploading that i'll upload your requested pets and devx. My poor google drive is going to be worn out!

PostPosted: Thu 29 May 2014, 05:58    Post subject: wheezy-3.5.2.12 need to press return while booting  

Hi Stemsee,

tons of thanks for the above links ...as also for your time !

Whatever a frugal or a full install of wheezy-3.5.2.12, here needs to press return while booting: the boot process stops after the comment
Code:
...
Recognizing media devices ... optical input                          done


at that step, need to press return to complete the boot; otherwise the system seems to wait for something. Rolling Eyes

thanks for any further follow-up Very Happy
HTH
