You do know that using pfix=ram Puppy will not use the save file when booted?

Yes, thank you, bigpup.

That was my attempt at being cautious; I've now removed the pfix=ram.

May I ask someone - there are two 'console' icons on my desktop: one is for
urxvt, the other for ROXterm. Is it supposed to be this way?

Thanks,
Sheldon

Yes it is supposed to happen, assuming you updated. Just right-click and Remove Item(s) for the one you don't want.

Subject description: THANKS EVERYONE!! 8-)
 

Thanks everyone for yet another truly spectacular success story here! 5.2.8 is simply "the best of the best" - not only to come out of the Puppy Kennels - but of all the Linux distros I've managed to have tried in my nearly 8 year to date love affair with "Unix-like operating systems".

Congratulations to all!

Cheers/Amicalement,

Don't know about 'Two Headed Dog'

Now it's an official Lupu I'm as happy as a dog with two tails!

Just need:

- Barry to change the Puppylinux.com page to identify 5.2.8 and not 5.2.5
- Lobster to change his wiki page to 5.2.8 (and not 5.2.6)
- Distrowatch to be informed

- to be prepared for the next invasion of new users!

Thanks Playdayz and the team.

Full install of 528 on Celeron 2400MHz PC with SIS graphics.

Works great.! I am soo happy, and amazed that Puppy 5 series works on my PC. I have tried Ubuntu (10 and 11) and Mint before, and neither would work well with the onboard graphics of my PC, not even after installing prop. SIS driver. But the XORG in puppy 5 series does it !

Audio: OK, Wireless OK, Ethernet OK, CD burner OK.

Next is printer. It's late now, so we will look at it tomorrow.

PlayDayz, thanks for your energy to pull this through to the end. I understand that this bugfix update ran out of control when more and more got updated, and understand that becuase of the risk in this you hesitated between 2HD and 528. Glad it proved good enough as a the best 5xx puppy.

Regards,

Harm

-edit- had one instance where firefox (5) kept running after closing. Restarting caused a popup "firefox is still running". Had to kill the task. Then all was okay again.

GREAT Work:)
Just a few things so it truelly would fit in the category "The best of the best".

Could you try to get it to work with older HW like ATI Rage 128 Pro or older nVidia? And here I mean "out of the box" with full OpenGL.

Its a hassle to get these old videocards to work, for which has full support in both windows 2000 and XP.

I had 5.2.5, but had to move to 4.2.1 to get OpenGL to work, because the new drivers and the new xorg didn't support the ATI card fully.

Also it would be nice if wine were fully integrated in the menu, so that "Wine Programs" were there too. Right now its nowhere to be found after installing Wine and here I mean all versions up to the newest 1.3.9.xxxx.

And if localization would work and actually change the menu to the language you use and not just english. Yesterday I gave a helping hand to Sc0ttman, by tranlslating some of his .mo files to danish, so it should not be impossible.

Last but not the least, it would be nice if you(user) could customize the desktop(add shortcuts, refresh and allign, and so on).

Keep up the good work:)

With kind regards

JBJ

From 3.xx on I use wine when it still was 0.9.x
Now I am at 1.3.23 and still never had a problem to find wine in the menu's of any puppy included the latest ones.
green_dome is the person who compiles wine and his latest is 1.3.25.
Winehq has announced 1.3.26, so green_dome will shortly announce it.

The Wine thread of green_dome can be easily found by searching on his name with the puppy search link in my thread.

Now for your problem, it is better to post it the users forum, as I don't think it's a lucid 5.2.8 issue.
