@shinobar
the last days I was playing with pmedia=ataflash instead of atahd (Slacko 5.3). Also played with rc.shutdown, but often changes in rc.shutdown were not saved at the end of the session. Other changes like copying or deleting got saved.

Since I use alsa_snapmergepuppy-20111210-shinobar.tar.gz, everything seems to work fine.

Thank you
Rolf

Are you planning on including a fix that will be included for the main release 528.iso or is this a separate issue?

Brown Mouse, I think you are asking about this.

Release Candidate for Lucid 5.2.8-004
This has the same fixes as the test02-lupu-528x.iso, specifically shinobar and rerwin's repairs to snapmergepuppy and 10alsa. It appears to fix the problem with usb-flash/sound disappearing, as well as possibly other problems, as in rhadon's message above. It also has the latest Install Flashplayer to adjust to the fact that Adobe has started moving the flashplayer binary around. Apart from those changes it contains Instant Update 002. No other changes are included as the main purpose is to consolidate a fix for the usb-flash/sound issue.

Playdayz,
After all these fixes and retractions and more fixes, which DevX file should go with lupu-528.004? Or does it need its own? BTW, I'm in awe of the Puppy developer team, especially you, Shinobar, Rerwin, and Smokey01, you guys busted tail for what looked like about a half-dozen Puppy users with sound problems. OK, maybe it was for the sake of a job well done, equally admirable. Thanks and kudos!

Exactly what is the strategy? A gold version soon? And how does this affect 3HD?
Whatever, must echo the congratulatory. Polishing brings an inner glow - very professional to dot the 't' s and cross the 'i' s, so to speak!

A. Downloaded the Lupu-528.004.iso file.

B. Edited the isolinux.cfg file on the iso, and renamed it Lupu-528.004-ataflash.iso

C. Made a CD-RW using Lupu-528.004-ataflash.iso

D. Deleted the "old" SFS file beside the lupusave file, and copied the "new" SFS into its place.

E. Rebooted using the Lupu-528.004-ataflash CD-RW.
It found and used the "old" lupusave file.
There was no notification of a need to update the lupusave file.
Is this because...
Lupu-528.004.iso
Is IDENTICAL to...
test02-lupu-528x.iso ?

F. Anyway...
It's working just as well as before. Very Happy Cool
Unable to tell any difference.

Hi

i was really hoping that some one could help me with something i have been struggling with, i have a Zotac Zbox Nano AD10.
http://www.kitguru.net/desktop-pc/zardon/zotac-zbox-nano-ad10-plus-review/

im struggling to get the graphics card(AMD Radeon HD6310) and audio to work on lupu 5.2.8.

i have installed numerous drivers for the graphics and cant seem to find a match, i was hoping that you could help me debug this to get it functioning.
i want to get the full potential of my graphics card and if possible extend the screen so i can have 2 screens, i have it all connected and while using the VESA driver it only clones the display.

sound, i tried the alsa driver wizard but it seems like the HW is not configured correctly. so it does not detect the audio and fails at some point. but it has never worked.

thanks kindly

kevin bowers, Yes, lupu_devx_528-4.sfs is the appropriate devx. That would only change if the release number 528 changed.

lupu_devx_528-4.sfs -> ftp://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/puppy-5.2.8/lupu_devx_528-4.sfs
bf14b9eea9d67ad2f58dd11dc15832f7 lupu_devx_528-4.sfs

Yes, we had some people work extremely hard on the usb-flash/sound issue. That was not easy because it was deep in the infrastructure, not just a problem with one particular program. I still have my fingers crossed-we will test the 004 iso as release candidate for several days. It wouldn't have been possible without Sylvander.

That's a good idea Sage. The strategy is to test the rc then hopefully post it as official in the first message of this thread and on ibiblio. Then I will post Instant Update 004 for people who are already using Lucid and don't want to download the new iso. The usb-flash/sound issue has not been reported in 3HD (or maybe once) so right now I regard 3HD with Instant Update 001 in the Three-Headed Dog thread to be solid. In the future of Lucid, rerwin is working on some further refinements and I am thinking that perhaps in the future we could have a "Stable" iso and a "Testing" iso. Another possibility is to emphasize Remastering and collect some interesting remasters--the Remastering capability of Lucid is working nicely with some improvements rerwin has made.

Well done - told you this one was worth the enormous effort. The silent majority are smiling with you. Something this good deserves everyone's appreciation and deserves to continue.

Here is a strange one with 004 (haven't noticed on earlier builds but can not exclude it either)
While running frugal from a USB, unloading an sfs with SFS_load on the fly, triggers snapmerge!
This is not the case with a frugal install on a HD.
Anybody else seeing this?
Is not really a problem (other than some delay), but is it intentional or a consequence of the recent changes?

Latter: though not formally measured, snapmerge looks considerably slower now in a frugal USB install, both in interval saves and shutdown

This kind of willingness, to improve and tweak, has made Lucid Puppy 528 the only Puppy I use.

The others I play with.
They just do not have the polished look and feel of Lucid 528.

I'm on 214X-TOP9 on this computer, because it runs without problems,

I too thank playdayz and the others for 5.2.8, which runs fine on my less-old computers.

Subject description: 528-004
 

I did a full install of lupu-528.004.iso to an Acer desktop pc.
Everything went well except grub4dos didn't search the partitions when
I ran it.
The drive has 4 ext4 partitions on it and I installed lupu to the 3rd
partition.When I ran grub4dos I clicked on the option to search only
the hard drive and it didn't work, I installed
grub4dos-0.4.4.v1.7.1.pet and it worked properly.
Other than that problem everything is good.
