I must be missing something then because I downloaded the Libre Office sfs from Quickpet and it has placed it on the /mnt/home partition and loaded it as an sfs.No conversion to a .pet.,which is what I really needed.

Quickpet handles SFS files depending on how Puppy is installed.
Frugal install- SFS file is downloaded to /mnt/home. A menu entry is made to launch the SFS file on demand.
The file stays an SFS file located in /mnt/home.

Full install- The SFS file is downloaded, turned into a pet, and installed as a pet normally is to a full install of Puppy.

Subject description: the Instant Update 001 (7 sep)

Test 1:
Booted using lupu 528 pfix=ram...
Been using the Instant Update 001 (7 sep) for Lucid 5.2.8 for 2 days : 528 is still running very well for me.
Test 2:
I updated several old lupu and luci (for the fun) :
Luci 258, Luci 268, Luci 626 without any big problem (localization FR by Shinobar, passwords, Seamonkey and Flash etc... are OK)
Thanks.

Slightly off topic, but HOW TO CONVERT SFS TO PET ?

Trio once made a pet for it but later it was reported that this was dangerous for it could clear all the contents of your hdd etc. ?

Looking forward.


Luckily in Lucid 528 it happened automatically.Downloaded the Libre Office sfs and it was automatically converted to a pet and installed.No apparent problems.

Is it OK to install the RC, having first installed the previous version?

I should have said, I would recommend uninstalling the Test version. That's just in general--I am not aware of any problems. You might try installing over the old version and see if you notice anything--I would think you could correct any problems that showed up by uninstalling both and then re-installing the RC.


FWIW, I have both upgrades installed on 3 different installs (528,529 and my build with the newer kernel) and nothing untoward has occurred. All looking good.

The "dust" HAS settled.

Well said as always jpeps. 01micko advised me and the future is grand Wink I am preparing a Super Multimedia Upgrade package for Three-Headed Dog, with Pmusic 2.0.1, a new gtkdialog, the ffmpeg multimedia libraries 0.8.2 (current release), and a new mplayer with actually more advanced ffmpeg libraries from the ffmpeg svn. Pburn 3.3.6 could go in also.

The current ffmpeg libraries are 0.6.1, but that is not so ancient as it might seem. 0.7.3 and 0.8.2 were released on the same day--the 7 series is designed to have most of the features of the 8 series but with more compatibility. Forget compatibility, we want the latest! Wink Wink

Pmusic 2 requires the 8 series and also the new gtkdialog.

The ffmpeg libraries are now compiled into mplayer. That way it gets the very latest by downloading them itself from svn, plus it knows exactly what it has, and nothing changes. It makes sense to me. The cost is several MB.

The "dust" HAS settled. It was largely a mistaken accusation. You certainly don't want NOT to include an updated gtkdialog, but can leave gtkdialog3 in there as well. Barry calls it gtkdialog4 or gtkdialog....either will work (link gtkdialog4->gtkdialog)

Oh ya, tells us now Rolling Eyes
Well for me, I installed instant update 001 RC over instant update 001 test.
My computer just took a big dump and refuses to start. Shocked
JUST KIDDING

Seems to be working OK for me.
Good update without removing test update!!

Too bad about not getting the latest Pburn in it.

Yes, but I was investigating and there was some kind of craziness about the latest Pburn and some others. It seems that Pburn uses a newer version of gtkdialog that evidently caused some problems with older scripts. A new version of gtkdialog should be backwards compatible I would think. i am glad not be be involved and will wait until the dust settles. In general I think that Pburn is really, really good--as good as the commercial Nero for Linux burning suite.
