Booted from ISO by Official Easy2Boot v1.03.

Works great. Not a lot was tested (but a very noticeable bug was the browse icon was not set correctly).

Hi pemasu et al,

Thank you pemasu - your ssl-certificate-fix-0.0.1.pet fixed my download problems with Qt-Web v 3.8.4 (which did not exist in v 3.7.3).

Qt-Web has been my most used browser for many months, but there may be three aspects for new users to take care with:

(1) If the download window is cleared using "Clean up" with any download(s) still in the original download location then total loss will occur.
(2) Before adding any personalised shortcuts it is suggested making a backup of the Qt-Web folder - because although it's a great feature - there may be a few strange and irrecoverable non-working results (at least for non-experts like me).
(3) I renamed my bookmarks to shorten them (or put them in a-long-bookmarks folder). Also, if a large number of bookmarks are imported the bookmark sidebar may look strange - until some items have been shortened and/or moved into new folders.

My regards

I checked this pet:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-precise/openbox_with_extras-005-english.pet

It has included this file:
/etc/xdg/menus/puppy-multimedia.menu

That file does not have the new multimedia submenu entries. It will cause that openbox does not show for example: Asunder, Gnome-Mplayer, Mhwaveedit, Pdvdrsap.
I think fix and reupload is recommended.


Openbox with extras is now called OpenboxPlus. It has two panel options (Lxpanel/Tint2) a fix for the xdg menu and many other enhancements:

You might also want to check Openbox-P, a lightweight alternative with FBpanel:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=86290

Feedback, fixes, themes, and translations for these packages are highly appreciated.

Your posts are off-topic. Please go to a more appropriate Forum thread.

Your comments are also b*t.

I have noticed from other posts of yours, you have a chip on the shoulder.

Enough said, I don't want to (again) get drawn into further responses.
I have made mental note to ignore future posts from you.

@ simargl,

Some have ignored everything you have written to date and that may be (and in my case is) the height of politeness.

@ Flash,

Surely the time for drastic action is fast approaching.

    Puppy multi-session live-CD version 1.0.0-alpha released. The file is puppy-firefox-1.0.0alpha-multisession.iso, size 52.5M. This is an experimental release. The final v1.0.0 release is expected to be concurrent with release of the v1.0.0 "normal" Puppy.

    Puppy version 1.0.2RC has been uploaded. The "RC" means Release Candidate, and the official release will follow shortly. Version 1.0.2RC is for the Puppy-enthusiasts to test and report any problems.


    Dec 24, 2005 Puppy 1.0.7beta test iso available

I realize that 5.6.4 is targeted at older computers but this computer felt
left out so I had to give it a try on here Smile

The amd-driver-installer-catalyst-13.1-legacy-linux-x86.x86_64.run
compiled no problem.
I installed Seamonkey 2.17.1 in ppm.
I added xbmc-12.2_frodo_sfs4.sfs because xbmc-11.0 in ppm tends to
crash often, and openboxp-1.0.1.pet.

Precise 5.6.4 alpha is working great so far.

Hi Barry et al,
A quick test run on Intel atom n270/945GSE eeepc.
Boots cleanly, runs smoothly and fast. No boot errors in logs, except these two insignificant warnings, in case they are of any interest to you:
Code:
/usr/sbin/quicksetup: line 899: 12001 Terminated              yaf-splash -bg orange -fg black -placement center -close never -fontsize large -icon /usr/share/doc/puppylogo96.png -text "$WELCOMEMSG"
/usr/sbin/quicksetup: line 1587: 13019 Terminated              yaf-splash -bg orange -close never -fontsize large -text "$(gettext 'Processing, please wait...')"

Regarding the two included browsers. My humble thought is this. Puppy Linux should ship without a preinstalled browser. If posts on this forum are any indication, we will never have a browser that fits all. More importantly, Barry, we just can't afford to have your precious dev time wasted on browsers. They are not worth your breath, given the scope of work that's already on the plate.

Having followed your posts on the blog, I understand that this build is aimed at older hardware. I have a suggestion that will make Precise more consistent with its stated goal. Can you please, recompile the kernel as a pure, true uniprocessor kernel, no SMP? I do recall you had such a kernel in the past.

Thank you for all your hard work.

This EeePC is a 701SD and 5 years old so likely out of the target
group.
Manual frugal install to a flash drive.

Working well so far.

EDIT: I updated ppm and added Vlc-2.0.5 from ppm,connected an external
monitor,usb keyboard and mouse combination.
Movies DVD's play great, even full screen.
This 701SD is working even better now.

Manual frugal to an ntfs partition on the E732 laptop and booting with grub4dos from an ext2 SDcard.
Both opera and seamonkey seem to run exceptionally well. As does QtWeb.
No issues so far - all looking very good, not far off the perfect puppy. Nice.
Better than nice - exceptional.
Now to try on the 10yr old Acer laptop.
