Yes, I did a full HD install again, and lzma works fine.

My original problem seems to stem from the fact that I compiled the
modules only (make modules) without the kernel image. But a reboot
then complained about mismatched modules. So I compiled the kernel
image afterwards.

Moral of the story: don't cut corners. Just run "make".

Looks like Seamonkey has a whole new data storage system from 1.17 on, presumably based on the Firefox model. Whatever, its stable and fast. In fact everything about 4.3.2 feels faster than previous Pups.

I miss a proper shut down dialog though, the menu system is horrid with a touchpad, so I installed Zigberts as it is in keeping with the default theme. Changed the desktop but kept the icons... nice.

BTW, how can one trigger JWM to auto-update without 'refresh menus'?

Also wish there was a way to disable the screensaver permanently via the menu system.
I use an xset script in the startup dir but it seems an oversight, and what noob is going to know how to create the script?

Why does this Pup run faster on my dual-core machine than my SMP Pup? Smile

Two words: newer kernel Smile

What's even more interesting is that an even newer stable kernel (k2.6.31) was released yesterday and it's even faster than the one used in Puppy 4.3 beta 2.

Hi Barry.

I found these two scripts, of which I have these questions about them:

In /usr/sbin/ndiswrapperGUI.sh, Where is the locale file?

In /usr/local/bin/fmradioshell, this points to fmradio, but not is included in puppy.

Attached is a minor correction to pupdial, to retain configuration-file Init statements as edited by users. I have also updated 3G_pupdial-wireless-12 with the fix..

Much to my surprise, I found a new version of the ess modem driver that required no patching other than Barry's to allow it to configure. Attached are the source, the updated readme file and the modules in a dotpet.

Solved it myself. Downloaded install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz from the Adobe web site and extracted the single file to
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

Now deezer.com works

PostPosted: Sat 12 Sep 2009, 02:57    Post subject: success on toshiba E105-S1402  

I'm very happy to report that 4.3-beta2 works on my weird toshiba. (It was a Best Buy deal.)

1. Running Xorg out of the box. woof would also run, but 4.2 was DOA for both Xorg and Xvesa.

2. iwlwifi needed the new intel firmware plus the pupscan-2 pet, as reported by others here and in the blog. The first scan failed, but the second worked. Without pupscan-2, I was seeing "Connection refused."

What a marvelous distro!

No new thread yet so.......

Already downloaded and did a full hard drive install with 4.3 Beta 3 on my old P3 test box.

Install took the usual 5 minutes, installer detected all of my partitions as well as showing that 476, 412, and 214 X were installed.

Not much testing yet but I haven't noticed any problems yet. It's late here, or early in the AM, will do more testing tomorrow. Am posting from FF 3.5 w/ latest flash.....installed and working fine as well.

Hi

As above - got pup425 beta3 - very nice.

Might be my imagination - but seems even faster than beta2.

Absolutely flies on my old Patriot laptop.
(93mb ram, 1GHz celeron proc. 251 swap partition, manual live frugal on
ext2)

Playing now - all seems very well - report later in new thread.

Very best regards - Ray
