Instant Update 001 for Lucid Puppy 5.1.1. There was a problem with some modem scripts in Woof and this update rolls them back. The update also includes some fixes for very new wifi chipsets. http://diddywahdiddy.net/LupuNews/

There are three areas of enhancement to Lucid Puppy 5.1.1. One, it is built with the Woof (Puppy Build System) released on August 22. This has a number of enhancements over the July 10 version used in LP 5.1, including: transmit and receive cumulative totals in the network tray icon, refinements to Smbclinet and smbexplorer, and more support for dial-up modems. Two, the default internal browser has been changed to a splendidly small version of Midori built by Puppy’s technosaurus. Three, there are a number of bugfixes included from Instant Update 003 (for 5.1): provides libjpeg7, laptop function keys, configures Sylpheed email, fixes USB bootflash, links fsck, Arabic and Hebrew fonts, links to libfaad and libx264 for xfce, browser link to Lupu News.

Hi Playdayz
On downloading 511 and will report anything I find, with it being built with the newer version of Woof, will everything need testing again or just the problem areas?
Cheers

Quick manual fresh frugal install of Luci-217 on the old P3 test box. No need to copy and paste anything.......................initial boot to a working desktop with correct resolution and working sound and internet connection.

Installed Xorg_High and SeaMonkey........has acceleration as expected.No problems yet.

Haven't burned a disc yet but will and test on other equipment later.Right now, time for food. Laughing

Quick test Luci 217.
(Nvidia driver , azerty, fr_FR)

Frugal install
jwm and icewm are good

But I used 'my' method :
Live Cd
1) Quickpet => downloaded in first time.
2) Complete Configuration => Choose : Nvidia (qwerty Embarassed )....
3) keyboard, locale (UTC)...

Opera 10 60, startmount, numlock, gimp,vlc (video)
acceleration (glxgears) : OK
... pupsave.... reboot....

It's run Very Happy

Thanks

initial report.. luci-217

The help icon on the desktop opens broswer installer.. I notice the file /usr/sbin/puppyhelp calls 'defaultbrowser'.. this may be ok in Wary/Quirky but no good for us. If it's changed to call 'gtkmoz' it opens in netsurf.

I loaded Iron browser (using now) and Seamonkey 2. Both work fine but perhaps we upgrade the repo with SM2.0.6 and Firefox 3.6.8 (or whatever is the latest the day before release Wink )

I have PMed Barry with an alternate /usr/sbin/delayedrun file so that Icewm and Jwm share the updated tray applets. Not sure if Barry has my updated freememapplet_tray bugfix for full installs.

Anyone testing a full install, let me know if the tray icon for freememapplet_tray works, Jwm only, the Icewm version is slightly different. (the one with the green marker that turns to red when space is critical Wink ).

I will test if Iron runs Cups. At the moment netsurf opens with cups with Iron as defaultbrowser... woops.. it does too with seamonkey.. ok that's a bug , I'm onto it Wink

Cheers

Might as well upgrade Flash too........I just upgraded SeaMonkey 2.0.6 up to 10.1 r82. Already been running it on other installs and works fine. Smile

That is on purpose. Netsurf does not run the Help correctly, reported by 8-bit. It is the same problem Netsurf has with Cups, drop down menus do not work. Today I emailed the Netsurf people and asked if they were interested in working with us. Netsurf *almost* works so if we are lucky there might be an easy fix.

I thought I got that--maybe I only just saw it Wink

Easiest thing, probably, is to check the things you usually check. The Woof seems pretty sound to me--in that I haven't noticed any problems with it.

Hi all

Clean frugal install on the 3200+ amd 64bit machine

just a couple of minor problems

Quickpet icon does not change when switching to smooth color

2 browsers crashing on flash games with 512mb ram installed, both htop and conky were saying that I was only using 360mb of ram, put another 512mb in, 1024 in total, games no longer crash but both still saying only using 360mb of ram.
unless the usage spikes too quickly for them to register?

Ayttm is working great on msn.

Cheers

Ah... ok.

Try this as a workaround until netsurf is fixed:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
NODEFBROWSER=`grep "quickpet" /usr/local/bin/defaultbrowser`
if [ "$NODEFBROWSER" = "" ];then USEBROWSER="defaultbrowser"
  else USEBROWSER="gtkmoz"
fi
$USEBROWSER file:///usr/share/doc/index.html


Something like that should take care of it for now...

Cheers

scsijon..

Just test what you usually do.. hopefully QP is ok for you now Wink (just try the small packages.. Pwidgets is the smallest)

____________________________________________________________

Here's (attached) is my proposed changes to /usr/sbin/delayedrun so Icewm and Jwm can share the icons in the tray... might as well test so BarryK has an idea if it works ok and can include in the woof build system.

What it does:
    *modifies /usr/sbin/delayedrun so that the messy scripts being used now for icewm become redundant.
    *it actually changes some permissions on the icewm files so they don't interfere
    *upgrades wmswitcher.. (hopefully you won't notice a thing there Wink )


Have fun testing Razz

Cheers
