Well done.

Is there a change log (over RC2) somewhere?


Here.
Removed superfluous "$" char from /usr/sbin/shutdownconfig, line 578
Fixed template for getopt (woof)
added zdump to main sfs instead of devx

That's it!

None of which will presumably address the wireless problems which I have reported on numerous occasions. I'll be sticking with Lupu for the time being, but I have found testing Slacko on the Pentium D interesting if ultimately frustrating.

Best wishes for the success of Slacko, and I'll keep an eye on future developments.

PostPosted: Tue 25 Oct 2011, 10:00    Post_subject: Laptrop PAE performance report  

All is well on a laptop. Apps are running without failure. Desktop performance is simply, great! This is a great accomplishment and contribution to the community.

I've run, both, 5.3 versions side by side., Looking thru the reports, I cannot see ANY performance differences. Yet PAE is seeing ALL of my RAM and PAE desktop appears to be slightly more responsive.

Thanks for this. .....THANKS!

Congrats!! Well done 01micko on a really great release - I downloaded as soon as you posted and have been using it all day, found no problems to report as such..

The 'nv' driver worked for me now, sound too, and also Nvidia-173 works fine Smile Did not need Xvesa once Very Happy

I think that the PPM, default repo, gtkdialog4, pmusic2, SlickPet etc, first boot friendliness and ease of use are great!!

It's a shame the defaults-changer is not installed, I missed it.. I thought that Barry added it to Woof, but I got a .pet lying around, so no problem for me..

Also, maybe you could cheat a little and re-upload the latest Puppyphone as psip-1.2RC.pet - so that SlickPet actually does download the very latest...

Xorg setup doesn't have i810 driver necessary for use
on my Dell Pentium M laptop.

Any resolution choice causes a narrowed screen.

Vesa causes system freeze.

Congratulations Mick,

Frugal installation to an ext4 partition. I just upgraded my 4fs save file from RC2 and it works perfectly, although I had to manually choose the nividia driver. The problem I noted with RC2 has been corrected. Next is to upgrade my Full HD installation which will be my main pup.

Great, Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

It turns out that there is still a problem with shutdown on the version with Kernel 2.6.39.6. Above report was using Kernel 2.6.39.4. I tried copying /usr/sbin/shutdownconfig from the version that shutdown works on, however, the problem still exists. Otherwise the Kernel 2.6.39.6 version works great.

PostPosted: Tue 25 Oct 2011, 16:24    Post_subject: I like, couple issues  

I really like Slacko. It feels polished, it has the option to use all available space on the save file, overall very nice. Two issues I've had with it. Usually touchpad on my netbook works pretty well with default puppy setting, but with slacko had to turn everything up because touchpad response and movement was terribly slow compared to other puppies. But that I could fix. Much bigger issue is that I cannot use my favorite browser, Chromium, very well. My download bar is invisible, hiding behind puppy's toolbar at the bottom. Also blocking my down arrow button for scrolling down the page. That is the one real problem I found. Otherwise it looks good.

edit--forget the Chromium thing. It seems that Chromium installs and opens fully maximized and that hides the lower portion of the controls, just needs to be maximized at normal.

Seems the extra deja vu fonts are not in the repository, unable to download.
Also would be nice to have the liberty fonts.

PostPosted: Tue 25 Oct 2011, 17:10    Post_subject:  Issue with localized keyboard layout
Sub_title: on every boot: US, after X restarting: okay
 

Hi,

reported this for Slacko B4 before http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=567542#567542, same in Slacko 5.3 (THANKS 01micko, great!):

Booting an installing (pupsave file okay). Setting to german language and keyboard layout.

Now: every boot LANG=de.UTF-8 but keyboard layout is US. After restarting X, german keyboard layout is available. Next start: again the same...

I'm not familiar with the system callings (init.d). Can't say, if for example /etc/profile is going correct at boot time.

Ideas?

In response to your personal message, I have tested the Talking Clock script with Slacko but had a problem which I have now fixed.

It now functions correctly, it can be downloaded at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=571453#571453.

Please try it I think you will like this, it's in keeping with puppy with simplicity and small size and feel free to modify it to suit you needs.

daemon.notice modprobe: FATAL: Error running install command for sound_slot_0

This is the only thing I'm having trouble with. Tried both sound wizards. Any suggestions please?
