Main Puppy Linux Forum Down - Status


The main Puppy Linux Discussion forum at www.murga-linux.com/puppy is unreachable, (giving a 404 error). The reason is that the domain has expired.

http://www.domaincheck.co.uk/search_...m&submit=Check

If anyone reading has the contact details for John Murga - Domain administrator, would you please inform him....quickly :-)

If you need resolution to the recently discovered bug in the recently released Puppy Linux 4.2 in Abiword incorrectly displaying documents, this can be solved by installing the downgraded 2.6.3 abiword package from here


http://www.ecomoney.eu/puppy/pets/office/abiword-2.6.3-updated.pet


As a point of contact (all other forums are unreachable) would people please post updates to this situation here.

Apparently it was a temporary situation. I just tried it with no problems.

Satellite down
My satellite Internet connection is down. I think that I have an account problem. The company I was with, BBNet, went broke and I got transferred to Reachnet. Reachnet was supposed to upgrade my satellite transceiver and finalise my new account after the technician had done the upgrade -- that was late last year, still nothing from them. Only excuses when I phone, about equipment not yet arrived from the USA. BBNet said the same thing back when I was waiting (for over 6 months) for my first connection.

I pay bi-annually, and that has expired, but I was still getting a connection. Anyway, it's not working yesterday and today. I can't be bothered to phone them again, I'll do it after Easter. Bye the way, have a nice Easter celebration everyone!

Unhappy Puppy Linux Forum - murgalinux.com

The forum is locked, apparently. The host may be doing some work, or there may have been a serious crash. Either way it is inaccessible. If it was deliberate then some notice would have been nice, but John Murga is pretty much the absentee host these days. All of that has nothing to do with Barry Kauler not being able to access the Internet via satellite though.

I've dropped in here for my Puppy fix, as we tend to use this as a backup forum when the main one goes down. I guess the problems are a function of being so popular all of a sudden. Up to 290 simultaneous accesses is pretty heavy for any distribution IMHO

Well, I certainly can't argue against that, but it's quite a coincidence.

Yes,...I miss my frequent "jaunts" into the Puppy kennels over at the forum! (I'm "nitehawk" over there,...)....
Guess we'll have to wait 'til after this Easter then <sighs deeply>

You could try out Todd's Puppy forum for your daily Puppy "kick"

http://www.toddrichardson.com/forum/index.php

I think I like it better than Linux Questions. The format there reminds me a bit more of our own kennels at Murga.

Todd's forum doesn't have much to offer with only 7 topics and a total of only 31 posts.

Main Puppy Linux forum down again!

Title says it all - the Murga Puppy forum is down again. As of 4/9/2009 8:48 PM, I get "can't establish a connection to the server at www.murga-linux.com." It's been down all day...

Can someone pass this info on to the right folks? Is there anything we as a group can do to make this happen less often?

If Murga's forum keeps messing up it will get bigger. Todd's forum has only been operating about a month, at least there is an option for a forum that works!!!!!!!

You're assuming that Todd's forum would work under a full load. That may be true or it may not be true. So far, I haven't seen any evidence that Todd's forum would function any better than Murga's if it had to endure the same loads that Murga's forum has been getting.
