kirk, I haven't been able to download it. The SeaMonkey downloader suddenly says completed, when only a bit of it is downloaded. Tried 4 -5 times, various times of the day. Maybe I'll create it myself, upload to ibiblio -- well, that's what I intended to do with yours, upload it to ibiblio.

I just tried it. Downloads for me. But I'm on the other side of the world. I think you'll want to copy:

include
Module.symvers
scripts
System.map
.config

from your built kernel into the kernel source you posted. That's all I did.


Edit: Also, you'll want a symlink from /usr/src/linux-2.6.21.5 to /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build. Maybe that's obsolete now, I built some stuff in the past that looked there.

217B boots my encrypted pupsave, cool! Smile

Still missing the USA-mountain timezone (see my last comments on the alpha thread).

Printer wizard still points at the old printer setup.

These are probably no news to you. Smile

Cool time is working OK for UK summertime Smile

The sfs bootmanager configuration is only recognising and allowing me to add the Open Office sfs (other sfs do not appear)
this is with or without the tick for 2.17 packages

the sfs I am trying to add is labled as pgs.2.16.sfs
changing name to pgs_2.17 .sfs makes it appear
(I think I have mentioned this before) It is rather confusing. If the sfs is available and the 2.17 option unticked should it appear and be available?

Wiki page for 2.17 "Dancer"
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Puppy217

and also . . .

With the next version of Puppy being 2.20 (Puppy "Happy") Very Happy
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Puppy220

we have the possibility of one or even two community editions. Rob from the Puppy cybercafe has shown some interest in organising one community edition.

Shall we go ahead with this? We can start planning now and use 2.17 as the basis. This will allow more efforts and time for 2.20

Regarding the kernel source sfs download errors - It is SeaMonkey that has the problem. I tried several times with the offending beast and only got partial downloads. It downloads first time, no hassle with opera.

Very Happy

yes, I'll slow down the pace of new releases, as requested. About three-monthly seems better. At this stage, it's looking like there will be a 2.18 with some incremental improvements, ditto a 2.19. So, there's a big time-frame for anyone to bring out 2.17-based puplets.

I am desperate to be able to use squash files with a frugal install. Will I be able to do so on 2.17?

Totally lost internet access via Miscrsoft to at least let me download Open Office until such time as I can have OO 2.2.sfs on my HD.

Am nearly winning the war but just need the last little bit of help

You and Lobster are both reporting time is fixed, but I don't know what I did to fix it Confused
...unless getting rid of /etc/TZ and the TZ environment variable has something to do with it. That's an old system, as far as I know, and not needed, it would seem ...but I'm gambling here, don't know if there is anything in Puppy that reads it. And, if getting rid of TZ fixed your problem, that seems to indicate that is does have some effect, which is a worry Confused

Anyway, all beta-testers, check your date-time as thoroughly as possible.

Er, have I missed some discussion on this? I didn't know this was a problem.
