Take more than a year as the main distribution in the full installation. When changing your computer's hard drive moved to an archive file, opened the drive alive and put grub. No problem.
Excellent distribution, and to fill the program has no equal.

Hope it is okay to ask here first and if it is wrong forum
I ask in Beginners instead.

I had to switch to a new computer on on that one
I had Lupu 528-004 instead of latest 005 july.

Is it okay to reuse old savefile for -004
or do I really ahave to start all over and
manually add all the programs and tweaks and
so much to remember to do in right order?

Have any of you tested and got in trouble?

Hi all,

I got a strange effect on a Notebook Fuijtsu LifeBook!
It looks like the Fn Key is activated constantly and deactivated by pressing the Fn Key. Exactly the opposite, as it should be. I can write this post only by pressing the Fn key constantly !

Do you have any idea/solution?

It is about the Lucid 528-4 / Lazy.

Greetings

You will need the Lupu 528.005 iso

Depending on how Lucid is installed determines how to do the upgrade.

Hi futwerk,

Thanks for the new wallpaper. I wonder if anyone else realizes how much hard work you put in to create your artwork and the vision that had to precede it. Just wanted you to know it was appreciated.
Although I keep Lupu as a fall-back/work-horse, most of the time I currently run one of the precise-pups. Pemasu just came out with a new version that I thought could be better reflected by a more powerful and abstract wallpaper. So your work appeared just in time. A little editing in gimp eliminated the Lucid+ moniker.
And then, having gimp opened, I got carried away. The result was my new upup desktop (jpg attached), a new drive48.png and a new xonclock clock-face. I've also attached them if anyone wants them. Instructions for replacing the drive48.png --which shows up as the desktop drive icons-- can be found here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=668562&sid=def2de8e3a0cff1737c1451528348104

How to change xonclock's face can be found here: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=602304

None of which would have been possible if you hadn't created the wallpaper for me to cannibalize.

Have you checked your 'package manager' for an update or alternatively look here:

I didn't come across it myself though

Hello

Hello

Having neglected Puppy for a while I find that Lucid is up to update 005.

I have Lucid and have added update 002 as a pet package but can't remember where I got that from. Is it possible to go to 005 or do I need to whole ISO from the top of this thread?

Thanks

Will

I would (again) thank the contributors for this great Puppy Lucid.
Today, this distribution has allowed me to free a MacBook.

otropogo,

Some of this speed difference could be caused by the different storage devices read speeds.


I thought of that initially, because the 256MB CF card is older than the 500MB SD, and would likely be a bit slower to read into RAM. But I dismissed that as an insignificant factor because:

1. I assume the entire loader code is read into RAM before the boot process begins, ie. before the boot prompt, after which all activity takes place strictly between RAM and the hard drives. And this is the interval in which the speed differences were noted.

I've just tested this assumption, and it proved WRONG. The card needs to remain in the card reader until the matching 2fs and sfs files have been located on the hard drive, or the load process will fail.

2. even if the assumption above is mistaken, the amount of code to be copied from the CF card is so small, that it couldn't account for any of the speed difference recorded.

I tested this by copying all of the Puppy files on the CF card in question to a test folder on one of my hard drives, using my slowest card reader.

The total Byte count of the files (since lupu_528.sfs isn't on the card) is only 4085K, and it took less than 2 seconds (1.5 by my stop watch) to copy all of these files to the hdd. Presumably, reading them into RAM would be no slower.

The same read from the SD card (an early "Pro" level 500MB SD) took a bit less than a second to complete.

I then repeatedly compared the time from reset to presentation of the hard drive's 2fs options (at which point the card is no longer a factor, and can be removed) took 58 seconds with the SD card, and 60 seconds with the CF card.

So assumption #2 seems to be correct. The "professional" 500MB SD card does read demonstrably faster than the 256MB CF card, as indicated in the first test above. But that doesn't translate into any significant difference in loading Puppy.

So why adding
Code:
 psubdir=pupsave
to the syslinux.cfg file should save 42 seconds of loading time with the CF card, but only 10 seconds with the SD card remains a mystery.

This is just to say that Puppy Linux 5.2.8 is so reliable and 5.2.8 005-2 so complete. I appreciate your keep offering this version with further improvements.
I am also user of Slacko 5.3.3, Puppy Linux Precise Pangolin 5.4.1, and Lighthouse64 Mariner 5.15 in several PCs and Laptops at home and in my father´s home, with very good experience, but I consider Puppy 5.2.8 a classic that deserves keeping it up.
Thank you.

Sometimes only one person digs deep enough to discover new information, but it is still very helpful. This sort of thing is always useful information. It adds to the overall knowledge pool and helps us understand the finer points of what is going on. Good research.


Thanks for your encouragement, greengeek.
