Thank you for including Legacy GRUB Config 2013.

There is a newer version of PeasyPrint (2.3) here.

Please read the discussion here about the phantom mounting of sda1. This was quite disconcerting.

Please refer to my post in the Precise 5.5 topic.

Some (most?) packages in the Ubuntu repos have something like this in their *.desktop files:
Code:

...
Categories=X-(category)-Sub
...

They aren't appearing in the JWM menu, after neither installation nor running fixmenus and restarting JWM. In the /etc/xdg/menus/puppy-*.menu files, the X-(category)-Sub categories aren't listed, only X-(category), so the -Sub category should be added (preferably right after the X-(category)) in each puppy-*.menu file.

Known affected packages are fceux, trimage and tvtime.

This is a minor bug, but it could be very confusing for newcomers.

I too ran into this with Filezilla X-Internet-Sub; But I also downloaded bibletime and vlc witch both went into the menu and worked.

everything else is working on a Dell D430

D/l finally arrived from ibiblio. There were some issues with video on a 754 nV board with Radeon 7000 onboard chip. Initial res. was incorrect and couldn't be reset from CLI. Rebooted with nox and got correct settings via manual input, but results were less than expected. 'Expected' was based on XP2800+ fitted with discrete Radeon 7000 card. This machine selected correct res., was brighter and faster without any intervention. Both machines shared the same monitor - odd.
Otherwise, another great release with sound, connection and FlashPlayer OOTB. This project definitely proving more successful that Rarin'. Thanks.

Re the "phantom mounting", I have responded to that in my blog:

http://bkhome.org/blog2/?viewDetailed=00226

I am going to rewrite the code so that pupdesk.flg gets created and removed in the initrd, so user's won't see any "phantom mounting".

It's not really a bug. In all cases where "-Sub" is shown, you leave it off.

Precise-5.5.93

Did an upgrade to 5.5.92... it went well but it took two reboots for Frisbee to finally kick in from the 5.5.92 original setup. That appears to be working very well so far (about 8-hours now) plus several reboots with 100% survival rate.

So far everything else that came with 5.5.93 plus all my installs are doing great!

Your effort on 5.5.93 really shows!

sfs's installed that work nice:
Google Earth-6.0.3.2197-luki.sfs
gimp-2.8.2-1precise.sfs

Still temporarily enjoying dialup internet for a few more days until my replacement equipment arrives so I actually used the delta file for a change.Generally just go ahead and download the new full iso but since my high-speed is down I appreciated the smaller download.

Frugal install on the Athlon XP box.....everything looking good except for the dreaded file being placed on sda1. Smile

PostPosted: Mon 13 May 2013, 06:42    Post subject: The oder of the additional SFS loading  

A long term woof issue:
The bootManager says 'top entry will be on top Unionfs layer', but it is not true.

Japanese editions have different code for the additional SFS'es to be loaded in the order listed on the EXTRASFSLIST.
Here is the patch:
Code:
# diff init-130216 init-550JP
139a140
> #27feb11 shinobar: extra sfs in the order of EXTRASFSLIST
1530,1537c1531,1537
<    ls -1 $SFSSDIR/*.sfs $xSFSSDIRx |
<    while read ONEEXTRA
<    do
<     ONEBASE="`basename $ONEEXTRA`"
<     exPATTERN="^z|^pup_" #w478
<     [ "`echo "$ONEBASE" | grep -E "$exPATTERN"`" != "" ] && continue
<     [ "`grep "$ONEBASE" /tmp/EXTRASFSS`" != "" ] && continue #100711 avoid loading duplicates.
<     [ "`echo "$EXTRASFSLIST" | grep "$ONEBASE"`" != "" ] && echo "${ONEEXTRA}" >> /tmp/EXTRASFSS
---
>    #31jan shinobar: extra sfs in the order of EXTRASFSLIST #27feb11 subdir first
>    for ONEEXTRA in $EXTRASFSLIST ; do
>      ONEBASE="`basename $ONEEXTRA`"
>      echo "$ONEBASE" | grep -qE '^z|^pup[_-]' && continue
>      echo "/tmp/EXTRASFSS" | grep -q "$ONEBASE" && continue # avoid loading duplicates.
>      [ "$xPSUBDIR" != "" ] && [ -s "$SFSSDIR$xPSUBDIR/$ONEBASE" ] && echo "$SFSSDIR$xPSUBDIR/$ONEBASE" >> /tmp/EXTRASFSS && continue
>      [ -s "$SFSSDIR/$ONEBASE" ] && echo "$SFSSDIR/$ONEBASE" >> /tmp/EXTRASFSS && continue

PostPosted: Mon 13 May 2013, 17:32    Post subject: use a boot menu instead of boot prompt  

Sorry, this response should be sent to the blog of BK, but I do not have an account to communicate.
So let me highlight a proposal jamesbond.
Quote:
My suggestion is either:

a) use a boot menu instead of boot prompt, where one of the menu entry is "safeboot" or something like that which will start puppy with the appropriate boot parameters, or

b) if still using boot prompt, then have another label entry (say "safeboot") which will boot with the appropriate boot parameters, instead of asking the user to type "puppy pfix=blahblahblah".

I know that many users appreciate the ease and efficiency of boot menu.
In addition, for many novice users, it avoids errors beginners.
Example: if I write 'pupy pfix=ram' (instead of 'puppy pfix=ram'), the prompt is telling me no error and start detecting the backup.
The menu avoids these errors and allow many options.
It's simple to customize (if it is integrated into the iso).

An example => How to have a graphical GRUB (CatDude)

Yeah if only other people who develop would use the Delta files more and more..... Wink
