PostPosted: Tue 22 Feb 2011, 21:00    Post_subject:  The Official Release of Lucid 5.25 (Lucid Five Twenty-Five)
Sub_title: The Most Leading-Edge Lucid Ever
 

This is the Official Release of Lucid Puppy 5.2.5.

Lucid Five Twenty-Five

A Five Digit Update from Lucid 5.2
The Ultimate Expression of the Lucid Vision
IMHO, Lucid 5.2.5 is probably not the best choice for AMD K6, because some programs in Lucid 5.2.5 are not compatible with K6. Lucid 5.1.1 would be a better choice--not that 4.3.1 is not perfectly good also. http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/puppy-5.1.1/

Instant Update 001 for Lucid Puppy 5.2.5 (known as the Bigpup Update) ->
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/Lucid525-InstantUpdate-001.pet
The update
--> fixes Bootflash which did not work in the release of Lucid 5.2.5
--> fixes xgamma-gui which did not work in the release of Lucid 5.2.5
--> updates Psync to be aware of both UTC and local system time
--> updates Firewallstate to leave program icon off on reboot when turned off
--> adds report-video-glx which might be a useful standard for diagnosing video issues
--> adds ffconvert to convert between video formats
--> updates the Lupu PPM in Puppy Package Manager
--> links Help to LupuNews Help

The pet is 132KB.

Lucid Puppy 5.2.5 ->

Lucid Puppy 5.25 is the most leading-edge Lucid ever.  It has Bash 4.1.0, Syslinux 4.03, and e2fsprogs 1.41.14, the latest from Ubuntu Natty. It now has JWM 500, up from 493.  Gnumeric 1.10.13 is a necessity because our very own yarddog had posted a bug to Gnumeric that is corrected in 1.0.13.   Lucid 5.25 uses the Woof of FEB 28 replacing the Woof of NOV 28 for 3 months of progress in Woof development. All of the favorite Puppy programs are there in their latest versions. Check out Pburn by zigbert which now compares favorably with Nero Linux. Gnome-mplayer 1.02 compiled by our own ttuuxxx is a substantial improvement and now works well with both the Openbox and JWM window managers. All this and the the low overhead that makes Puppy fast and the friendliness that makes it fun.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Lucid Puppy 5.2.5
Very few changes
-> Rox slowdown issue fixed (01micko and others)
-> 2 menu item duplicates (Sylpheed and Iron)
-> Quickpet Iron
-> Stay-Connected added


Lupu-521 RC aka Release What You Tested

Very few changes
-> back to flashplayer 10.2.153.1 by forum feedback
-> back to DejaVu Sans desktop font by forum feedback, but Liberation are still installed and available
-> back to original udev because the updates seemed to be associated with network dropouts
-> latest BaCon in Devx to make Barry happy - runtime libhug in iso
-> i915.modeset version 2 by rerwin
-> considerable work on devx

Luci-257 aka Better Safe than Sorry

-> guvcview back to 1.4.4
-> /usr/lib/gconv/IBM850.so
-> Quickset (firstrun) message about setting UTF-8
-> udev-151 from Ubuntu Lucid Updates cut down to file to file with Barry’s udev-124 (which it replaces)
-> udev_lib-151 updated from Lucid Updates
-> 2 barks is enough - code snippet to stop barks if necessary
-> Liberation fonts properly installed (thanks to 01micko) and set as default

Testing:

1. udev has to do with hardware detection and configuration (sound, modems, usb, etc.) : Does udev-151 and the updated libraries solve any problems (or create any)?

If you have a problem and this doesn’t solve it, please download the udev-full-151 and install that and reboot. Any help?
http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/udev_151-12.3_i386.deb

2. Do you prefer Liberation Sans fonts (current default) or Deja Vu Sans fonts (previous default)?

3. The usual basics: Are sound, video, etc., properly set up? Do the programs work?


(I changed the name of luci_devx_251 to 257 I hope that doesn't mess up the md5sum--I don't know.)

Delta file.......
http://diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/luci-256.iso___luci-257.iso.delta
562da9fe66784cc7a6fd806351cdec05

Luci-256

-> symlinks to libssl and libcrypto 0.9.7
-> PupControl program defaults added
-> latest Quickpet 4.2
-> rules to distinguish between different Intel 845 video chipsets (rerwin)
-> rt2800usb fix from tempestuous
-> Flashplayer reverted to 10.1r102

In testing, upgrades from the previous luci version are not the most important thing now--most testing should be done pfix=ram. And then at the end we will test upgrading Lucid 5.2. Please test Audio, Video (especially Intel video), and modems, and everything else.

Luci-254 is Ready and Waiting

Issues found and fixed since luci-253

-> wget, ssh issue - fixed by using openssl 0.9.8o, an update from 0.9.8k
-> Aide Abiword - duplicate Abiword listing in languages other than English and now French - same listing for program and for Help
-> /root/.history not being written - fixed with bash 4.1.0
-> gnome-mplayer crashing Google Earth - fixed with gnome-mplayer 1.0.2
-> gnome-mplayer 1.0.2 icons - fixed by 01micko
-> gnome-mplayer full screen problem with jwm - fixed with 1.0.2
-> caught localization problem (petget) - petget uses a technique that wipes localization - commented it out
-> include backgrounds from 5.2 to prevent missing background error on upgrade
-> Update PupRadio 0.8, JWM Thememaker 1.5, Pburn 3.3.4
-> PupControl 1.4.1
-> Guvcview 1.4.4 replacing Luvcview

Luci-254 is the most leading-edge Lucid ever. It has Bash 4.1.0, an upgrade from Bash 3, Syslinux 4.03, an upgrade from Syslinux 3, and e2fsprogs 1.41.14, the latest from Ubuntu Natty. It also has all of the updated Puppy programs and the Ubuntu binaries listed below. It now has JWM 500, up from 493.

We got Gnumeric 1.10.13 (up from 1.10.12 in 5.2) because our very own yarddog had posted a bug to Gnumeric that is corrected in 1.0.13.

It uses the Woof of FEB 28 replacing Woof of FEB 22 which replaced the Woof of NOV 28. This is the Woof we will stay with because in the next one Barry has merged the zzz-Utilities.


Notes
libpython has been added to the devx (and to the Python in PPM). integer.pm has been added to perl. With Syslinux 4, I was able to install Puppy and boot a usb flash disk with ext4. pcdripper was not starting properly and I removed it. Asunder works. Icons in jwm menu work. Sound is persistent. jwm background works. jwm500 now has the correct support files from 01micko.

I think I have fixed the issues reported previously.

Thanks.

Luci-250 will become Lucid 5.2.1, hopefully by March 5, the 2-month anniversary of the release of Lucid 5.2 and the 10-month anniversary of the original Lucid 5.0. It should be the last release of Lucid Puppy.


glad to see you are back in the saddle again - perhaps this will be the last release of Lucid Puppy but looking forward to seeing your name on many more exciting projects in the future

d/l luci-250 and booted from live cd - installed browser and few other items - autoconnected to internet and everything looking good so far

Luci-250 live pfix=ram on the main Linux box.Internet,sound and display all working and correct on initial boot.
One little thing, in JWM there are no menu icons for Sylpheed, Geany and Gnome MPlayer......no problem in the default Openbox though.
No problem turning on the firewall and no problems with Quickpet.

I've already done a manual frugal install on the P4 test box....I'll reboot into Luci-250 in a few for a better test.
Looking good here so far. Smile

I should have said that the Setup icon on the desktop starts PupControl.

Upgrading frugal installs.
A big thing that needs testing is how well pup-save files update.
This is the first version of Lucid Puppy to have the changes that should correct the problems of the past.

Version upgrade improvements
Thanks for the feedback guys. I have made some changes, which will be in the next build of Wary.
there are changes in the 'init' script in the initrd.gz file. A new release of Puppy is required.

I assume this means the changes are in the newest version of Woof used to make this Luci 250.

Will try this when I have a chance and will report back with results.
Can't wait to try it!
Quite frankly, I'm so pleased with the last beta that came out I'm still using it! (Also because the official release doesn't seem to cooperate with Amarok.)

James you ahve to teach me do the GLX thing looks impressive to be able to give such figures. I use Acer D250 Netbook and they are very small and have a single core Atom CPU so I don't expect they render graphics that fast.

I will download the latest iso now and test but how do I get the GLXGear thing going so I can tell how it appears here.

Sound not up to expectations. Is that not something puppy have always have problem with. My poor memory but does not some of the other Linux has higher sound output? Slax? Antix, Elive, Knoppix? CDLinux? Even TinyCore?

I am hopefully wrong. I get back and tell how the latest Luci behave on my little puter

Edit I am in Luci-250 now and typical of me I renamed it luci-520 and it failed to boot. Smile

What to test? Browsing seems as usual. Opps forgot to listen to sound on youtube. Yes we have sound. Smile So check if mediaplayer do what it should.

pictures and mediafiles play as they should. I did download and installed Chrome to see that the PPM in Quick set up worked.

How does one do the glx gear thing?

Manual frugal install on my HP550 laptop

Initial bootup including wifi Broadcom B43 OK (old problem of association dropping after short time still there but fixable)

No sound after reboot - used retrovol to recover - reboot - sound gone again - deleted 10alsa as suggested - reboot - sound OK.

Tested pnethood samba share with WinXP - OK

Tested cups remote raw printer using smbc: - OK

Using Dillo to post this.

Cheers
Peter

p.s. copied lupusave.2fs into the test directory - renamed lucisave.2fs - all seems OK.

If this is the last release of Lucid Puppy, what is planned to follow?

Also any chance of updating the Fujitsu fpit driver for 5.2.1 as the version shipped with 5.2 is broken. See http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=64937

[quote="playdayz"]

Note: It looks like we might have the same problem with alsa that we had in Lucid 5.2. If sound is not persistent, right-click the volume/speaker icon in the tray and choose full window and then make sure Front is turned up. You can also delete /etc/init.d/10alsa, which fixed it last time (courtesy of 01micko).[quote]

also had problem with sound after creating save file on usb stick. on second reboot sound was muted.
tried alsafix provided by pemasu from snow puppy 010
did not work
deleted 10alsa from /etc/init.d, rebooted and sound is now ok

no other problems detected

Hogweed don't get me wrong but doesn't he explain that on the first post in this thread. Maybe you mean further away from that goal?

guess you mean it is the latest just now?
