I am and will be still couple of days out of the internet in the Red Sea. I took vacation so see sun for awhile and I have snorkeled with my 2 sons. I will be back in Finland in Tuesday. I will start to read through posts. I noticed there are some improvement feedback posted. I will check them also.
Evince can be included with postscript capability. I just compile it with ps support and include the needed lib.

About report-video. I use now Barry Kaulers version, so the gui one is not included. The gui one is not accurate. So...the Sys-info has that video report ability nonfunctional.

But...I will be back...

Upup Precise 5.4.X.7 has been uploaded. It uses woof where the initrd ntfs3g driver has been updated to accept save file creation in compressed ntfs. Most of us needs that, lol.

Of course you get bleeding edge packages from ubuntu updates. Probably some system core files have been updated through it at woof download stage. PPM database files are also atm up to date.
Firefox-18 is in PPM for example, canonical version.

Epdfview has been replaced with evince. Evince has pdf, ps, comics .cbr support.

Rox right clicks got some improvements. Gtkdialog is now version 0.8.4. Upup Precise should be ready for upcoming Pmusic 3.1.0.
Pfind, Pfilesearch and Pburn updated to the latest versions.

I also present the alpha version of new Quickpet, created by 666philb. It is in its early days, and improvement feedback will be appreciated.

rtl8192cu.ko usb wireless module does not seem to behave with all chip id`s it should... so I have compiled realtek proprietary 8192cu.ko which you will find from upup repo.

Gawk aka awk has been updated to the version 4.0.0 so that it support -e argument. Needed with .po files, at least so I understood.

And one new wallpaper from our artist futwerk.

Also couple of bugs I found immediately. Pinboard chat icon does not launch xchat. Somehow /usr/local/bin/defaultchat has pidgin instead of xchat. I suppose most can fix that themselves.

Xchat random upupuser---and a lot numbers---are still present. I should have updated delayedrun to create shorter random upupuser-numbers name. Well....will be fixed in next version.

Updated pdiag included. Use it when reporting non working wireless problems. It is better than pmodemdiag and much better than post: my wireless modem does not work, please help !!!!

Hi pemasu

Just a quick report of something I don't think I've seen before - after my 1st pristine, frugal boot of 54x7 (i.e. before savefile creation) both the b43 and wl drivers were loaded. pdiag is attached.

After a reboot and savefile creation, only the wl driver was loaded, which is the expected behaviour.

Just thought I'd mention....
Cheers

Thanks peebee. Rerwin understands better if there is flaw in his logic or is it something I have screwed.

I am posting from Upup Precise with kernel 3.7.2. Yeah aufs3.7 support was released week ago. I just couldnt help myself.

This kernel will be no pae, basic kernel, with as much hardware and external devices support as possible. Also some people might benefit from the bleeding edge drivers. It can be that firmware pool will need updates to keep up with latest drivers.

I suppose I have second version ready this evening. I had to fix the kernel building script to get aufs included. Then I tested that kernel works, done. Now I will recompile it with some tuning.

I will include brand new SMB2 support to the kernel.

Great. I am downloading, and will continue developing on Upup. This should hopefully make it easier for both of us.


Thank you!!!!

Hello Pemasu

Since you seem to be the most prolific compiler of kernels, could you configure cpuid and msr kernel modules in your DOTconfig, when convenient please?

None or the recent 32 bit Puppies have them. I need them to turn the p-state voltages on my Athlon II X2 down to a sensible voltage. Mine works perfectly at 1.1V which halves the power consumption compared with the AMD setting of 1.4V

Thanks.

LateAdopter. I added those to my upcoming 3.7.2 kernel as modules.

I hope you know what you are doing when you use low-level hardware adjusting stuff.

I can try later to compile them as extra modules to the official pae kernel, but I dont know if it is possible. Separate device drivers are easy. Those modules are something else, I believe.

Hello Pemasu

Thanks for the response. I'll try your new kernel if you put it in a puppy.

I'm not a software developer, but I spent a day trying to find out how to compile them out-of-tree. Although I compiled them, modprobe would not load them. I think compiling an in-tree module out-of-tree is a non-trivial problem.

I think the easiest way is to recompile the kernel with a modified DOTconfig, but I don't know what other consequences might be.

I would not ask you to spend your time doing it just for me.

But I thought adding them to DOTconfig looked trivial.

Tom'shardware did all the work on overclocking and undervolting Athlon IIs about 3 years ago. They found they could overclock to 3.6GHz and still turn the voltage DOWN to 1.3V. I don't overclock and AMD's setting is much too high.

Harder than I thought Very Happy
Everything worked as expected until X messed it all up (the visual mess is hard to explain, but a northern Finish showstorm in freeze-mode should tell some...). I am running a AMD A8-3870 APU (graphics builtin). The graphics chip is a Radeon HD 6550D.
Video report in Slacko tells this:
Code:
# report-video
VIDEO REPORT: Slacko Puppy, version 5.3.2.10

Chip description:
oem: AMD ATOMBIOS
product: SUMO 01.00

Driver used by Xorg:
fglrx

Video mode used by Xorg:
Resolution: "1920x1080"  Depth: Depth 24

...the above also recorded in /tmp/report-video


Yes, I checked MD5 sum which has lead to a bugfixed pBurn Smile
Also tried booting with pfix=nox, but X still tries to run.....
