This morning I reported PPM update not working

Now, It working fine as you can see
Code:
rm: cannot remove `/root/.packages/Packages-puppy-fd64-offical*': No such file or directory

A package information database file needs to be downloaded.
This will be downloaded from:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/fatdog/pets/500/Packages-puppy-fd64-offical
and will be processed and named Packages-puppy-fd64-offical.
Press ENTER key to download, any other to abort:
...success.

http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/fatdog/pets/500/Packages-puppy-fd64-offical
and will be named Packages-puppy-fd64-offical.
Press ENTER key to download, any other to abort:
...success

FINISHED
After returning to the main GUI window of the package manager,
it will be reading the updated database files.
Press ENTER key to exit:   
Maybe a glitch somewhere between then and now. Interestingly, I was able to surf the web, and access the FATDOG site for PETs. But the PPM was not cooperating as it always had.

Sorry, somehow I didn't put that in. I'll attach a pet to fix it.

Your PET does the same weird thing as my patch. It breaks the gtkdialog so the file chooser icon no longer appears. Maybe someone else can test this.

What kind of graphics card is that with?


It's an old ATI Radeon Xpress 200G. But I believe that I also saw it happen on a newer machine with Intel graphics.

Also, sfs_load is still broken because of the change in kernel number. However, when I try to force it into SFSVER=4, the program breaks. (???)

gcmartin, what exactly is the problem? I clicked "update now" and then it works, I can see the packages ... as James C also confirmed.

FWIW, configuring the PPM worked well here.

Has this been reported? PPM issues. Maybe I missed,but is documented to use a different method for system package management?

Might want to consider an update?

Hope this helps

Thanks, folks, for the FD 520 final.

I hope I don't dampen your enthusiasm with bad news - X can't work in my AMD Fusion Laptop even with the kernel parameter tweaks of pfix=vesa,nox nomodeset (and any possible combination).

But FD 520 never hangs Xorg at once, only after about 2 minutes.

My emachines fusion laptop monitor must be the problematic part that makes Xorg fail in this machine (too sad, this is the much-promising AMD Fusion APU solution). (However, FD 511 has pristine Xorg setup doing direct rendering in this machine, so there lies the confusion.)

I wonder how Xorg setup can be tweaked without hanging the whole system? FD 520 and even other/newer Puppies can't get past xorgwizard's "Probing..." in this machine. Older Xorgwizard (in pup 431, for example) never hangs at that point.

EDIT: For diagnostics, am attaching the contents of /tmp and the result of lspci.

I suspect it might be the drivers.. .however I have never seen this in any puppy, and not with the RC

Computer - Intel E8400 Duo 3GH. Nvidia GeForce 9400GT card.

Boot halts with tiny print on the screen. I suspect, wizard has adjusted the video. NOTHING till I hit enter then something flashes on the screen. I get a desktop...Icons seem large, yet hardware info shows 1040x.

STRANGE part is the screen flashes about every three or five seconds.

Thanks, jb. I expected to find the email client in the menu as well as desktop. I don't use Thunderbird, anyway - Claws or EudoraOSE!
Yes, the video is a major bugaboo, but so could be the mouse one if there isn't a boxload of spares knocking around...

Sage,
The email client is "Thunderbird" - it's on the desktop next to the Firefox icon. As for the PPM - yeah it's blank, you need to "configure" it first to download the latest package list. The graphics is the difficult one, I don't have any answer.

For others:
- I've just uploaded the latest skype.sfs and jre 1.6.
-An as announced earlier, there is openshot.sfs version 1.3 which includes blender too.

cheers!
