I did a manual frugal install to my Acer Revo nettop.
The proprietary nvidia driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-331.38.run) compiled
and updated xorg.conf.
Now I have the correct screen resolution etc, and the mouse works but
the keyboard doesn't.

Connecting to any website in Firefox is very slow.
That's it so far.

Hello 01micko

Thanks for this, its working well on my PC. Athlon II X2 240 +RS880G

I run puppies from a FAT32 partition. Each time I run Slacko64 it leaves the partition in a state that win2k complains about. Win2k runs the disk check and finds no problem.

I installed your VLC 2.1.0 PET and then I installed alienBOB's VLC 2.1.2 TXZ over the top.

I now have VLC 2.1.2 working nicely.

The TXZ does not seem to install properly on its own. It gets stuck with BASH taking 100% of one core until I shut down.
I does copy the files to the right place, though.

TurionPowerControl + CPUID & MSR are working and I have turned the P-State voltages down to sensible values.

The idle cpu load is about 4% whereas fatdog is less than 1%. Nothing shows up in TOP, but something is using cpu cycles in the background.
It's not important for my desktop but may be significant on a laptop.

On the subject of download speeds to the UK...

I downloaded 5.8.6 from 01micko at about 30kB/s the other day

Today I downloaded 5.8.7 from smokey01 at 109kB/s

At the same time I downloaded the QT SFS from nluug at 352kB/s

That's about the limit for my ADSL.

Thanks again

Quick frugal install using the Universal Installer. Had to add nouveau.noaccel=1 due to freezing problems.Otherwise, all looking good so far.

PPM is working for james and firefox is blazing for you, I'm not
getting the same result as you on this nettop or my i7 desktop.
Should I report my results or just be quiet?

Apologies if I offended you in anyway.
I just though that would be important for the developer to know the extend of the problem, ie if it is hardware/setup specific or something more general.
I hope you find this practice agreeable.

Same here. I installed one package while running live....... different pupmode/ hardware/ devx installed or not/ etc could make a difference.All of the different variables is one reason why testing is important.

Billtoo, I gather the md5sum was ok. Strange that you have the same result on 2 machines. I don't know what else it could be other than an error copying the files to disk. To eliminate that possibility, or at least reduce it its chances of occurring, run "sync" after copying files.

For your convenience, here are the checksums of the original files (in case it is a copy error):
Code:
934675aa99ba614a17fbc18fd4db0cf3  initrd.gz
0cc42069f87993144e5f3d8e626bbe95  puppy_slacko64_5.8.7.sfs
a82bb260d62d789ab06506e246b2a53d  vmlinuz


Also, you might try copying from commandline, sometimes filemanagers can change permissions.

Of course it could be none of the above and be a serious bug! That's why it's alpha, to get the crap out in the open.

HTH

Although it is under Issues on the Nabble Slacko64 page, I thought I would mention here that the BootFlash Install Puppy to USB does not work. It hangs when it is trying to copy the iso to the USB stick
