I managed to finally get wirless working well with the Windows driver. Frisbee now
comes up and makes the wlan0 connection quickly at startup. I can confirm that
power management on wlan0 is off by default. I haven't experienced any symptoms
of the wireless bug. I haven't yet booted up enough times to say anything about
the black screen bug but so far I haven't seen it.

So it certainly looks like the 3.7.2 kernel is free of the wireless bug! Hooray! I plan to
just use 3.7.2 every day for awhile to see if any issues arise.

Precise is the most stable Puppy for me (automatic suspend when lid is closed, etc etc).

No stop in work of software, no other noticeable errors, stability and reliability.

When you think to compile a PAE-kernel version?

Thanks a lot for your work.

Download link in first post ( http://www.smokey01.com/pemasu/UpupPrecise/UpupPrecise372/ ) is 404 not found.

To the poster above wanting a PAE version - I think this is what you are looking for http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=82255

There's also Precise 5.4.3 - See http://bkhome.org/blog2/?viewDetailed=00070

Sorry about the download link. I have had to remove my previous work heavily due to disk space requirements. I have had generous permission from smokey01 to upload to the site. Now there has been need to restrict the load. So...I have removed a lot stuff from there. But...it was not meant to remove this build. I am uploading it atm again. I am so grateful that I have had opportunity to upload to the smokey01.com that I dont want to spoil it.

About PAE 3.7.2 kernel. Probably not going to do it. I just dont have enough time to do all those things I would like to.

I am atm trying to create working dpup wheezy, and the progress has been good. Soon there is time to update Upup Precise builds, when Barry Kauler announces 'woof plateau' time. Then I believe Barry uploads next Precise Puppy and I try follow with my enhancement builds. So...one person....one life...many things to do.

I used this build mostly before I changed to the Dpup Wheezy builds. I am delighted that it behaves with people.

I posted about this on the Users section of the Forum and thought I'd mention it here
as well. This concerns the fact that I must use my Windows wireless driver and a
situation where it wasn't being loaded automatically at startup. I was forced into a
clumsy procedure to get connected each startup.

I placed the line:
modprobe ndiswrapper
in the file /etc//rc.d/rc.sysinit
down near the end and just before the lines concerning wireless.

Now at startup, I get a automatic connection via Frisbee.

Precise 3.7.2 continues to work well here.

I've looking for a 3.7.2. kernel, because in kernel 3.2.29 suspend-and-wake function when lid of my laptop is closed and reopen hangs machine and I must reboot to continue.

Since I have three or four Exprimo (Squeeze) installs plus Precise 3.7.2 on this old Athlon XP box I've been doing some fairly in-depth comparison testing.Considering resource usage,kernel version,etc. I've concluded that if I had to choose only one version to leave on this box I'd choose Precise 3.7.2.
Works fine and no problems even worth mentioning. You build a good distro. Smile

Just purely for informational purposes....... Tried to install Precise 3.7.2 on another one of my boxes and it's a total no go.Personally not worried about it but decided to let you know.
Boots to a desktop fine with an internet connection but rather quickly freezes and the display distorts leading to a hard poweroff. Tried booting pfix=nox and using "vesa"..... X wouldn't start. "Nouveau" gets a desktop but freezes with the distorted display.
Pretty sure it's not a hardware problem.....box runs Mageia, SolusOS. Lucid,Slacko, Macpup and Windows 7.
