Same problem in Racy....evidently not as bad on newer more powerful hardware.

@james C
Found I could change timezone after savefile was created, using
menu>desktop>set timezone
BUT it is very slow to go down the list and using the up arrow just takes you back to the start so don't rush it.

Additional info for Barry
Anything requiring a vertically formatted list or scrollbar is horribly slow to select or move, yet if the list is horizontal it's response is almost immediate??? this includes a spreadsheet, database or even multiple page doc's and pdf's.

Also, isn't the calc icon on the desktop suppose to show a spreadsheet, not a calculator?

I do find this rc is clearly running slower than the last if opening windows or starting applications.

regards

zulhilmi, you haven't given us a lot of information to work with, but to start with:

First check that the iso file downloaded properly by gtkhash (file telling what it should be is in the download directory on the website).

If that's right, it just sounds like a bad burn or install, try again.

Let us know what you did and where the problem starts at, like is it on starting the cd or after installing, if installed is it a frugal install or full, have you used the cd to do an upgrade of an earlier version, etc.

we Wink don't mind more information than we need, especially as were not there.

regards
scsijon

PostPosted: Sun 13 Nov 2011, 07:47    Post subject: gtk+-2.24.8-w5c
Subject description: seems nice
 

Installed gtk+-2.24.8-w5c.pet with DEV on Wary Puppy 5.2.1.90.
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=02594

Some troubles remains with the nVidia commercial driver(gimp-2.7.1 still crashes),
but seems better:
Insert key on seamonkey... OK.
Combobox of gtkdialog3/gtkdialog4... OK.
I compiled gimp-2.6.11 against the gtk+-2.24.8-w5c and works OK(was crashed when opening new files).

gimp-2.6.11-w5c.sfs
http://shino.pos.to/party/bridge.cgi?puppy/opt/pup5/
(May NOT work on usual Wary/Racy)
./configure --prefix=/usr --host=i486-t2-linux-gnu --sysconfdir=/etc --with-x --without-dbus --without-webkit --disable-python

PostPosted: Mon 14 Nov 2011, 10:09    Post subject: Remove builtin packages  

The "new" GTK solved the problem: opening Remove builtin packages does not hog the CPU. Thanks, Barry.
However, after I went thru the process and removed Abiword, Gumeric and Seamonkey (plus others) and finally got a directory for the new ISO, I found that it contains broken files: initrd.gz was about 760 bytes and vmlinuz was only 32 bytes long. What is strange, too: the sfs file was only a little smaller than the original one: 122 MB.
I repeated the process twice with the same result. Then I replaced the broken files with the original initrd.gz and vmlinuz to see what happens: yeah, the packages disappeared.

During further testing I've noticed that web pages are very,very slow to load in SeaMonkey.Installed Opera 11.51 with the same result.
Also reported by testers in the Racy thread.

The automatic download of the flashplayer didn't work for me. It seems the file was downloaded, but it was an error reported that installation failed.
After that I installed the flashplayer 10 from the Puppy Package Manager. Installation was fine, but using SeaMonkey all web pages with some flash load very very slow. Sometimes delays of 1-2 minutes.
I didn't create any save file and rebooted. Tested SeaMonkey wihtout any flashplayer installed and the web pages are loading at normal speed.

Not quite. Yes it does download, but it reports that it 'did not download' rather than 'failed to install'. Weird.
This is different from 5.2.1.90 which fails completely.

Otherwise, same issues with mouse/SM/video as in Racy.

PostPosted: Tue 15 Nov 2011, 16:16    Post subject: B43 wifi no longer works  

Hi Barry

I regret to have to report that this Wary 5.2.1.91 seems to contain the same new Broadcom B43 firmware as is contained in Racy 5.2.1.91 and as a result does not work with my wifi.

I could see from dmesg that newer firmware was being used. [edit]screenshots of ucode13 properties attached showing different dates and sizes - the April 2008 firmware has been around since pup4.3.1 at least...)[/edit]

I copied the old firmware from Wary 5.2 and my B43 wifi then worked as before.

This is definitely a retrograde step for me - and presumably other B43 owners.

Thanks
peebee

Wary Puppy 5.2.1.91:
Insert key on seamonkey... OK.

gimp-2.6.11-w5c.sfs compiled against the gtk+-2.24.8-w5c also works on Wary Puppy 5.2.1.91(gtk+-2.20.1-1-w5?).

hostname-set does not work.
/usr/sbin/hostname-set at line 26:
Code:

should be:
Code:
if [ "$1" = "" ];then
