Subject description: latest woof -alpha Three, hopeful last alpha
 

This is the announcement of ..

Slacko 312.37

Get it here;

iso image <-- http://brainwavedesigncentral.net/micko01/stuff/puppy/spup/main/spup-312.37.iso 121MB

checksum: dfc5c7df6de05040f5875285fe573d2e spup-312.37.iso

More fun Smile [ checksum verified by Lobster Wink ]

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

CHANGES from 311.37

* most noticeable is NO boot to desktop
* a UNIQUE hostname is assigned and is persistent.. (Please verify if you do a FULL install) ..thanks to gcmartin
* Pmusic is updated to the third alpha, along with Pequalizer, needing the latest gtkdialog revision (Sigmund, forgive me for hacks![you'll see!])
* Nathan's wall setter is updated
* Clarf's Pnethood is updated, thanks Clarf Smile [seems faster to me]
* Sound has a new approach, it should be better for all
* Added an app to GetFlash (Thx smokey01, oh, and libreoffice should be fixed and updated Wink )
* New tray icon theming, love it or hate it!
* Parcellite updated
* Rox Filer NTFS bug FIXED!
* Firewallstate ADDED [tasmod Smile ]
* radeon modeset=0 is now default [thx mikesLr, davids45, Lobster, Billtoo and others]
* USB booting should be ok, if it fails with PUI try BootFlash, I had an instance of a non-booting FAT32 stick from PUI, ok with BootFlash, ok from PUI when formatted to EXT2
* New mount desk icons (woof)
* other small stuff

devx <-- http://brainwavedesigncentral.net/micko01/stuff/puppy/spup/pet_packages-spup/devx_spup_312.37.sfs 123MB

Checksum; 304aba8235a363329caad1a81dd860c0 devx_spup_312.37.sfs

Notes

Kernel

The kernel is recompiled 2.6.37.6, seems the best one to me for this pup, and that has nothing to do with Slackware's choice. I tried 2.6.39.2, too many modules failed to compile, maybe that's fixed in 2.9.29.3, I don't know.. I may experiment with that later as the "PAE" version.
USB booting can be problematic with these newer kernels as well pemasu (the cold puppy series maestro) knows. If you can't boot try instead of "pmedia=usbflash" using "pmedia=sdb1" (or if you have more drives/partitions bump the letter from 'b' to 'c' or 'd' or whatever suits your system). Barry is looking into this issue. See the blog if interested.

Packages

STILL need to sync PPM... soon

Slickpet has more sfs files now and a surprise on the first page, Frisbee, seems to work fine for me. I too have experienced intermittent non connectivity at boot, a PITA, especially when SNS doesn't save settings.

PPM now introduces the Smokey01 repo as well as the brainwave repo (thanks to Smokey01 and Saturn [aka Xrter in IRC] respectively). I did have many problems yesterday uploading heaps of stuff, some files from brainwave were returning the wrong checksum, so please let me know ASAP if you get a dodgy download, especially the main iso and devx.

Sound

SOUND should be fixed now Razz

There is an exciting new feature that zigbert and myself have been developing, some of you already know. I won't announce it.. that takes the fun out of discovery! Sure it may break sound for some of you, but most it will be fixed easily by running alsamixer or right clicking the retrovol icon in the tray and choosing "full window" and adjusting the sliders and checkboxes.
For those of you that can't bear this new feature then it can be uninstalled. I'll let you know how later.

Apps

There are heaps of upgrades in the apps, not done yet though. Some apps have been removed but there are others that cover for those. I'll do up a full changelog later. Some that you will notice are gnumeric, Pmusic, ffmpeg.

X.org

Sorry, no more boot to desktop! This is a minor inconvenience I believe and may well be worth the hassle for stability.

~~~~~~

Thanks to pemasu, zigbert, Iguleder and ttuuxxx for apps, futwerk for artwork.

Anyway, enough drivel.. get Slacko!

Latest changelog and TODO list

Kernel source <-- http://brainwavedesigncentral.net/micko01/stuff/puppy/spup/pet_packages-spup/kernel_sources-2.6.37.6-patched_spup2.sfs Approx 85M

Checksum; 1d29a36c731a19ce30333e0aa5e68349 kernel_sources-2.6.37.6-patched_spup2.sfs

Update to PPM, somehow the wrong file slipped through Embarassed

after install type
Code:
rm /tmp/pet*
in a terminal emulator, saves reboot to flush /tmp of petget files.

EDIT2: woops.. forgot smokey's repo in petget Laughing Embarassed .. get the second update, includes the first

I haven't got quite all needed packages to smokey's repo yet so some will fail.

EDIT3: up to petget update 3, added seamonkey-2.2 and broadcom_wl driver.
petget_ud-3.pet

Looking good.

Mr. Green
. . . that is me jealous . . .

Download good. Fast.

OK my 64bit Athlon BSOD (Black Screen of Death)
. . . gonna go through old stuff for spup, I thought it was 'puppy acpi=off'
(something like that - I did type it in right but that command made no difference)
Tried on a second machine went to desktop no problems, but could not get a wireless connect - scan found nothing. That could be my issue so nothing to worry about there unless others have issues . . .

Thanks guys and do not tell us anything about the new Quickpet
feature . . . I want to have a look for myself Cool

Thanks Mick. Thanks guys. Smile

Hi James

As a bit of an aside, can you try pwidgets on the quad? Make sure you get the PPM update first as it has the latest pwidgets. Older pwidgets are not compatible with the new wallpaper setter, that is they will clobber it! I want to see if the 4 cores show in the cpu_bar widget, should support up to eight methinks.. erm any more and it would take up the whole side! Laughing

Give me a minute and I certainly will. Might come in handy when I build my hexacore. Laughing
