Edit 29 Nov 2012: 610 Final is released here. Thanks to everyone for testing it.

James and myself are pleased to announce Fatdog64-610. This release contains some package updates, a few new features, and many bug fixes.

Updates:
* libdrm-2.4.39
* libxcb-1.8.1
* Mesa-9.0-x86_64
* xf86-input-evdev-2.7.3
* xf86-input-keyboard-1.6.2
* xf86-input-mouse-1.8.1
* xf86-input-synaptics-1.6.2
* xf86-video-ati-6.14.6
* xf86-video-intel-2.20.13
* xf86-video-nouveau-1.0.4
* xf86-video-nv-2.1.20
* Seamonkey-2.13.1
* Firefox-16.0.1
* alsa-lib-1.0.26
* alsa-plugins-1.0.26
* alsa-utils-1.0.26
* VlC-2.0.4
* Flash Player 11.2 r202
* Geany-1.22 w/plugins
* Linux-3.4.18
* qt-4.8.1 (partial in iso, full package available as pet)
* Transmission-2.73
* peasyport 1.7
* scanner-share 1.2
* Pburn-3.7.7
* Remove Transcoder FFMPEG GUI, VLC handles conversions nicely.

New features:
* Hacked Lxpanel volumealsa plugin to have a right click option to launch alsamixer.
* Hacked Lxpanel cpu plugin to have a right click option to launch lxtask.
* transmission running as spot
* multisession: can save session without having to shutdown
* spin down disks before shutdown (prevent data loss on usb disks)
* gtksudoer configuration file for gtksu, options for non-root to run root-only programs
* Add right-click option to wpa_gui to launch the Network Wizard. Some behavior of
wpa_gui has changed. See new "How to connect to a network" in the FAQs.
* Add a very hacked down HAL, just enough for Flash player on Amazon Prime and other web sites.
* Replace Kino with Avidemux-2.6git
* Added ELANTECH and SENTELIC touch pad support to kernel.

Our normal host, ibiblio.org, is currently having space issues. So the iso and devx files can be found here:

User name: download@fatdog64
Password: fatdog

Please note that during testing only the Seamonkey iso is available. A Firefox-16.0.1pet is available on the ibiblio repo. Also the ATI and Nvidia pets have not be updated yet.

Please use a new savefile. Move or delete your old savefile, or boot with savefile=none.

If you have Broadcom wireless and need the proprietary driver, it is included, but will not load automatically. To use it open the Control Panel and select the System tab. Then click on Manage servers and services, then click on BC-wl and then Enable and Start.

Running from live dvd with a savefile.
I installed the nvidia proprietary driver and configured it to use two
monitors, twinview worked but spread across both displays.I chose
separate x screens and it wasn't working well so I compiled fluxbox
and it's working better, lxpanel is still working on monitor1.

If you are downloading through your web browser, you are logged in as the unprivileged user spot. So the only place you can save is in spot's folder. After the download, you can move the file to its desired location.

IIRC, when you create a save file, you are given the option to change this.

thanks

popped the frugal alongside slacko on a small partition reserved for pups which then didn't allow enough space for a download

not used to not having folder access!!

it is much quicker than my 5.3.3. slacko but would like chromium and a few other pets like x11 & tightvnc

unfortunately I'm not yet skilled enough to compile stuff myself Sad

wake on lan gui from the forum appeared to install ok along with x11server, the others didn't though

if I could have the above and I could work out the access issues it would probably become my mainstream build

nice work all the same and always amazed by the effort that goes into our puppies

X11vnc is included. It's in the Control Panel under the Desktop tab. Click on "Share your desktop".

To connect use "VNC Remote Desktop Viewer". It's under network in the menu. Enter the IP address of the computer you want to connect to.

Tightvnc server aka Xvnc is in the repo ("vncserver").

Xvnc doesn't have any dependencies, but the start script ("vncserver") requires Perl at the time being. I will re-work it as a shell script later.

Hello Kirk & jamesbond

Thank you for this. It seems to be working well so far, but a few things I have noticed:

Unchecking run WPA_Gui, via the control panel, does not remove the icon from the taskbar. I only have wired ethernet, so I don't need it.

The panel is the version without Autohide. I loaded the lxpanel 0.5.9 pet that you posted previously and that worked.

glxgears is 719 in 610 beta compared with 903 in 600. There is nothing unusual in xorg.0.log. Maybe mesa 9 doesn't like my RS880G chipset. I don't play 3d games, so it doesn't matter, anyway.

2d rendering acceleration is the important thing for video playback. I'll test VLC next.

thanks again

If you right click on wpa_gui in the taskbar and select Quit, all of the processes except wpa_gui are killed. This is different from 601, with 610 decided to leave it running so you could restart everything or launch the Network Wizard from it.

Glxgears is not for benchmarking. I'm surprised it's not 60.

Billtoo,

Did your Nvidia computers boot to a desktop without installing the proprietary driver?

Yes, but the nouveau doesn't work well with two monitors, loading a program shows up on both screens.
I never tried the zarfy utility, maybe that would have changed things?
The latest proprietary nvidia driver is working well though.
