Hi oldyeller

You could be right - I'll try a few pae puppy's and then a few non-pae puppy's and see if there are any obvious diiierences.

I think that BK carefully selects his kernels for similar reasons.

A solution might be to offer users a PAE and a non-PAE kernel option.
More work but more happy users.

Thanks for your thoughts and for all that you do for Puppy.

Very best regards - Ray

Sub_title: addenda :oops:
 

@Jejy69
My issues (on page 11) are mostly if not all self-inflicted. Been checking in a 'stock' racy53 and much of the same 'til I figured out MY BAD cap @153k

Leave the finished isos up if you like, I'm sure many will appreciate all your efforts!

@Ray&oldyeller
For sure BK is doing his selections with an almost instinctual feel for what works. I'm not all that wild about xorg76 (my ATI vidcards are really borderline for accepting radeon rather than xvesa driver), but the racy kernel is fine on my old gear.

C'est la Vie . . .

Well - after all this time (weeks feel like years in this forum) - v7 up and running, a really great job! I added SpaceFM for dual-pane, works nicely (maybe it should be in by default, idk how much call there is for dual-pane FMs).

Precise is not slacko? What is it based on?

Sub_title: not quite sp@m
 

definitely more-or-less (in 'dog' years, anyhow)

I for one am very much sold on dual-pane fmsº (solid advocate of xfe, even made a custom duo that uses two versions for different looks and setups since I'm a lazy sloth when it comes down to using a 'final' product). Yep, other good reports on spacefm here'n'there - have to get a round tuitt, too many square ones recently Laughing

I believe Precise is a 'buntu-type deal going with that family (repos, philosophy and so on)

º about the only one I didn't personally care for was vifm (but if you're used to vi, it's probably better than sliced bread for getting things like sandwiches done when you're hungry now)

heh, heh - about ten minutes after i shut the laptop down for the night it hit me - "DUH!! "Lucid pup based on Ubuntu Lucid, Precise pup must be based on..."

I didn't want to bother editing my post, i wanted to get in bed! Razz

It's great the Precise will be LTS for FIVE years...on the other hand, there's something comforting about good ol' Slackware. Very Happy

Hi Jejy69

C'est magnifique - excellent job as always.

Just a few very small "nitpicking" comments offered in the spirit of making it "even better":

1. little ghosts of open windows remain in the window buttons on the tray even after the window has been closed - attach #1

2. pnethood opens rox rather than pcmanfm - and icons for directories seem to be missing - attach #2

3. the image in psd seems to be corrupt - see attach #3

4. usual puppy icons for common puppy file types such as .pet .sfs. .2fs etc. are not displayed in pcmanfm

Hope this is helpful.

Cheers
PeeBee

PostPosted: Sun 09 Sep 2012, 12:59    Post_subject: problems adding packages, problems with burniso2cd  

Hi guys, any one having problems adding packages? Every package I have tried to install (audacious, xfburn, chromium) crashes. Audacious worked fine in Checkmate Finale. Xfburn had problems in Finale. Didn't try chromium in Finale. Also, burniso2cd failed to burn an iso. Just wondering if anyone else having these problems. Thanks, Rob

If you use the slacko based version then in PPM (slackware) there is a package "seamonkey-solibs" created for the purpose of chrome browsers. Best to update PPM databases though as the versions may have shifted up a bit since slacko-533's release.

Although.. it may work ok if you add the firefox install dir (/usr/lib/firefox? I didn't check) to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Usually in /etc/profile its /usr/lib/seamonkey.
