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.

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.

Release Candidate of the Instant Update 001.

All new changes seem to have been made.
Working good so far.

I would keep an eye on Pburn development. Seems to be very active, at the moment, about changes to support for DVD's.

Pburn just got updated to V3.3.6

Just missed it, but we have to stop somewhere.

Here is the the Instant Update 001 for Lucid 5.2.8.

ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/puppy-5.2.8/Instant_Update-Lucid528-001.pet

add two gnome-mplayer icons
PupControl preferences
new iwlwifi.tar.gz in /lib/modules/all-firmware
latest Packages-puppy-lucid-official in PPM
gnome-mplayer menu entry remove %U
small change to Cloud Apps to remove 2nd More Apps which pointed to /usr/share/applications

X libgconf2-4_3.1.6 to enable Chromium-based browsers
X libgconf_DEV-3.1.6
X Help -> LupuNews puppylogo96 image without being connected
X update Firewallstate 2.0 tasmod
X update PupControl 1.7 radky includes very cool PupSysinfo
X update Pburn 3.3.5 zigbert
X change to Start with Playlist in gnome-mplayer for dvd’s otherwise gnome-mplayer shows black screen with audio until one changes size of screen - for dvd's, XineDVD is still better, but some people might expect the default media player to play dvd's with no fuss, not unreasonably
X add Getflash (modified) from Slacko to update (or install) Flashplayer
X add Cloud Puppy by szzindian, under Utility

From rerwin:
# 1. Update /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG.
# 2. Reduce occurrences of DNS not being set for ppp connections to some USB-modem ISPs. (/etc/ppp/wvdial)
# 3. Retain access to prename script if devx also loaded (with a different script of the same name) (usr/share/applications/prename.desktop).
# 4. Set "show_msg=NO" configuration option for both of dillo's dillorc files (adding the one in /etc/dillo).
# 5. Correct missing "fi" statement in bareview script.
# 6. Personal Settings updates:
# . . a. Complete the hostname-change process by cycling connections and prompting user to log out.
# . . b. Simplify numlock preset logic.
# . . c. Avoid "barks" during full country-settings display but retain them for first runs with no pupsave files or full installations.
# . . d. Integrate firstrun-1.8.4 into lupu version of personal settings script but exclude new "extralang" support (which could be provided by a dot-pet package).

Playdayz,
Test instant update 001

Pburn just got updated to V3.3.6
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=560534#560534

Seems zigbert is trying to improve video DVD copy/shrink abilities.
This version does have some bug fixes.
May have more improvements to video DVD's handling in near future.

GREAT result!

I can continue to use Lupu-528 with all my previous additions and configurations!
Don't understand why that was necessary?

That is good news Sylvander. Thanks for staying with it. As to why it was necessary, well, updating is much more complicated than a fresh install--and in 5.2.8 we changed to the latest ALSA 1.0.24-2, so that made it even rougher for sound.

OK...
1. Booted using puppy pfix=ram...

2. Found that sound was working everywhere:
Youtube, audio CD, your video test files. Cool

3. Came to this thread, and saw your post.
Will now do as you suggest, and see what results. Very Happy

4. Would be nice to get Lupu-528 working WITH all my additions and configurations.
Puppy is GREAT!
And Lupu is particularly good.
Takes something to get me away from Boxpup. Very Happy
Spoiled for choice in Puppy.

I'm back:

Sylvander, Since it is not working anyway, you might try alsawizard and/or Multiple Sound card Wizard before you try pfix=ram.

Menu -> Setup -> ALSA Sound Wizard
Menu -> Setup -> Multiple Sound Card Wizard

I think Multiple Sound card Wizard might be worth a try even if you have only one card--I am not sure though.

1. "Sylvander, Can you download this and test whether the the mp4 and swf files have sound?"
(a) The swf file shows [in Xfe] as a document file type, so naturally it doesn't play in either gnome-mplayer or mplayer.

(b) The wheelie.mp4 file plays in both of the above players, but with NO SOUND.

(c) All of the other video files play in gnome-mplayer, but with NO SOUND.

2. "is it only youtube videos that have no sound?"
(a) Apparently not; cannot get sound when attempting to play a commercial audio CD using either Pmusic or pCD.
See screenshot below got when using Pmusic.

3. "have you tried with a fresh install of 5.2.8? Or booting the Live Cd with pfix=ram?"
(a) Will try pfix=ram ASAP [in the morning?], and get back.

Awesome job, guys!! Smile My USB sound works great!! It also looks like some of my radio streaming pages that normally wait five seconds before even buffering, now start buffering instantly when the page is loaded. I'm using Chrome 13 BTW. Smile It's too bad my DJ software and Hasp through Wine don't work or I would be out of Windows. Smile
