  1. DriverPack Solution

    Try these links. http://www.tactools.org/driverpack-solution-10-professional-dvd.html http://www.downarchive.com/forums/applications/578496-driverpack-solution-10-professional-dvd.html http://filespump.com/software/63355-driverpack-solution-10-professional-dvd.html I haven't checked them but they appear to be legit because their size is 4GB. All driverpacks were updated on February 5. The version of the program is R144(Jan 31, 2010). WARNING: this release has only one major problem so far. Some people reported that installing "AMD PCI Express (3GIO) Filter Driver" may render their system unusable. This driver should be removed from driverpacks because there is no way of telling if it will work properly. In the mean time I strongly suggest to skip updating this driver.

    For some reason, the link for DriverPack Solution 10 won't appear unless you choose to the Russian version of the site. I don't know if was intended behavior or not. The link will let you download DriverPack Solution 10 R130. This version was finalized around 26th January but wasn't available for download. Users could buy the DVD for 16$ and 33$(starting from 1st Match). Users were allowed to download this version for free since 16 March. You must have downloaded the 1.46 GB version. This release was put together by unknown 3rd party and I recommended everyone to stay away from it because it has major issues: old version of program(like R109, I don't remember now), broken indexes, driverpacks can't be used properly because of their unusual naming(they were never meant to be used for this program: they were designed K-Systems). Even though you can download the official R130 release(3.20 GB), I suggest looking for "DriverPack Solution 10 R144". It was released on 1st February 2010 and based on Revision 144(R144) and can fit on a DVD(4.36 GB) and all driverpacks were up to date back than.

    If there is problem, please attach the logs(folder "logs"). Also, where did you get DriverPack Solution 10? There are many different version floating on the Internet. The version of the program should be at least R144.

    This is a problem with the tooltip module which we didn't make and I don't feel like digging into it. We had enough problems with this module with different versions of IE already. As a workaround you can replace ' with \u2032 or look for other charapters at http://unicode.org/charts/

    I'm not surprised that machine translation is like that, so proposed to drop it no one would translated it some time ago. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll ask dynaletik if he could help it. I see. I mentioned the Hindi/Urdu languages because these are among the most spoken languages. Are you speaking about changing the home page to a custom home page without the user notice? DriverPack Solution 9 does it every time for every user account on a computer. But DriverPack Solution 10 doesn't do that anymore. Their driverpacks are free and Open Source so no one have to pay to use ore copy.However they accept donations: http://driverpacks.net/donate @Kelsenellenelvian I would highly appreciated if you could help improving the English translation for DriverPack Solution 10 because as of now, it's maintained by the people who aren't native English speakers. Even if it's grammatically correct some text might be rephrased so it would sound more natural. Follow this instruction to get the latest DriverPack Solution from SVN. http://code.google.com/p/driverpacksolution/wiki/SVNbasics (this instruction might need some corrections as well)

    Lithuanian translation updated in R113. It was nice of you that you kept the whitespace formating even though it isn't required from translators. Language support status Up to date: English(primary) Russian(primary) Ukrainian Azeri Lithuanian Italian German Need to be updated: Dutch French Outdated: Turkish Spanish I think these languages are of high importance and should be added at some point Arabic Chinese Hindi/Urdu Japanese Portuguese Other languages are welcome as well, but I wanted them to be maintained from time to time so I will not have to dump the language.

    SamLab makes driverpacks labeled as "SamDrivers". SamLab released SamDrivers 12.30 at the New Year and asked others not to upload driverpacks elsewhere till January 11 or else the next release will be paid only. Someone broke that condition and people started a heated discussion about the future of the project. This what SamLab has to say: http://samforum.ws/showpost.php?p=773860&postcount=815 I translated most of this. I appreciate his hard work and dedication to the project and I think he deserves to get some donations. It appears clicking on the advert banners doesn't bring him much income but I don't see any other way to donate him. I'll ask him how people can donate.

    Fixed in R112 As for the Italian translation and the mistake in English translation. I'm waiting for jinkazama to complete the registration procedure to become a member of the project so he could change it himself.
  10. DriverPack Solution

    Your whitespace formating matches formating of English translation file. This is good because I can trust you won't break the formating when you will have the right to commit your changes directly to SVN. Note you inserted an extra empty line before the first infobar line though. Hints: 1. Make sure you're making translation against the latest revision(R110). Right click on the folder, click "update". 2. Use WinMerge to compare English and Italian file. Right click on the first file, click "compare to". Right click on the second file, click "compare to". Also, you didn't translate: bugreport_?????? (it's a group of lines) error_?????? (it's a group of lines) button_showPanel button_hidePanel Attach the corrected language file, and if everything is all right, I'll make you a member so you will be able to change SVN yourself. Note: translators don't have to bother with formating if they aren't going to change code directly at SVN. They should just attach correct translation and I'll fix the formating before committing to SVN.

    alert_reportCreateed and alert_reportFailed were removed at some point so you should remove them as well. The project is open to new contributers but before you will be added you should make patch(es) and send them to me or ArtX for review. Hopefully your patch will applied and you'll be added to the project. For more information see http://code.google.com/p/driverpacksolution/wiki/SVNbasics

    For those who want to correct or make a translation for a language they are familiar with. You should get the latest revision from the SVN server. Follow the instruction on "Checking out". http://code.google.com/p/driverpacksolution/wiki/SVNbasics English and Russian translation are always up to date while the other are often lagging behind so you should base your translation on either of those two. The most recently updated translation are Dutch, French, Italian, Lithuanian, Ukrainian but they are already out of date. The string to translate are commented out(marked with //) and these strings: button_showPanel button_hidePanel bugreport_??????? error_???????? Azeri, Turkish and Spanish translations haven't been updated for a long time. German translation is made by Google Translate and we're going to drop it if there is no good translation. @ Scorp You made translation for R2(Revision 2) which corresponds to DriverPack Solution 9 and this version isn't supported anymore. The latest released version was R36 which corresponds to the latest Dev Build. A new version based on the latest revision is going to be released soon and this version will be official stable release which will be supported till a next version will be became stable. Anyways, DvZ already made a Dutch translation for R89. It still needs to be updated though.

    Hi. I'm BadPointer(this isn't my real name, of course). ArtX and me are working on DriverPack Soultion. We're preparing for the next release right now but it takes more time then we thought it would take to bring a new version. But I'm glad we didn't release it too early so our testers helped to discover and fix some showstopper bugs. I believe the code is stable now though we still need to do some things before the release. It appears you were using DriverPack Solution 9 and aren't aware that there were unofficial releases(named Dev Builds to distinguish from the main branch). The highlights: support Windows 64-bit, improved speed, improved driver matching. The latest released Dev Build was Dev Build R36_c (19-Oct-2009). The Dev Builds releases were intended for these prefer to be the cutting edge rather then stink to the stable version. Other time these they matured enough and made stable version obsolete and we(the developers) are going to drop support for the stable version altogether in favor of the current version soon. The latest Dev Build version will be labeled "official stable build" and we will start work on a new version. There will be bugfixes and small updates for this official stable release but major features and updates will be only available in the new version. Since the project is Open Source, you can grab the latest version(and any version you wish) from the SVN server and check it out. Keep in mind, even though you can get the latest revision, you shouldn't use it unless you consider yourself a tester because any given revision might be broken. Our testers are advised to use the latest revision and have a known stable revision in case the latest revision should fail. They also encouraged to take time to investigate failures and collect as much information about the problem as they can. The SVN server keeps record of all changes made to DriverPack Solution and can be viewed as time machine and changelog. You can learn how DriverPack changes over time by looking at the revision comments at the SVN. http://code.google.com/p/driverpacksolutio...ce/list?start=9 R1: Initial revision R2: DriverPack Solution 9 ... R36: The latest released Dev Build ... R110: The latest revision as of this writing. If you're eager to get your hand on the latest version, you can follow this instruction. http://code.google.com/p/driverpacksolution/wiki/SVNbasics Once you do this, you can use the context menu of the folder and click "update" to update DriverPack Solution to the latest revision when it's available.
