Of course he's entitled, rg, as I said previously.
However, if it's a public offering, I can't afford my time as a mere user to examine so many distros which turn out to be problematic.
Carry on regardless, misty.

@Sage

Calm down, dont panic.

The next release that I talk about before was the release of r20. I just notify that r20 might be bleeding edge due to radical changes on some puppy scripts which declutters data files and more efficient.

I downloaded the r20 image that I uploaded and check the MD5 checksum. It matched.

Now I test it to boot. Then it boots.

It seems you have a problematic connection on google drive and you got a corrupted disk image. If you want to access to old versions of X-Slacko Slim you can find the link on the first post of this thread. The archive repo was maintained by @ally.

By the way if you have r19 iso then try to apply this delta file to create r20 iso then try it to boot. Dont forget to check the MD5 checksum.

Delta File: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Wou5V9KrwUakxNCvEgNFB2F-j8BE2FLZ/view?usp=sharing
MD5 Checksum: 7c42e65b1f2f3e000a57f9fe31b1996b

Every X-Slacko Slim releases was tested both virtual and real hardware before deploying it.

Thanks for those comments, misty. Afraid I'm just a user and tester. I really need 'ready-to-go' distros for my purposes and a super compact live CD is ideal for testing and diagnosis. As far as 'deltae' are concerned, I try to avoid them as it's a lot of hassle to load up two different live distros to accomplish the changes, then transpose to yet another medium when neither are my principle desktops. I suspect it's less of a problem for folks using a Puppy as their main system.

I can boot r20 on my ASUS netbook. I did have trouble dd'ing the ISO file to a USB key, though. The resulting partition was readable and well-formed, but unbootable. I had to resort to running rufus on Windows to get a bootable USB key.

The battery meter tray icon show 100% charge regardless of the real battery state. Sometimes it says it's "charged" with 0 minutes remaining. Pelo reported the same problem long ago. Any idea where to look to fix this?

@step X-Slacko Slim uses cbatticon for battery level monitoring. Just replace it new version one if you want.

@mistfire xslacko-slim cbatticon version 1.6.6 vs. github latest version 1.6.8. Between the two version the author updated translations and cosmetics but nothing having to do with battery level detection.
