Subject description: It's out!
 

Slacko 6.3.0 is out!

See the new slacko website for downloads and links to the release notes and official announcement. I have emailed Barry to contact Ladislav at Distrowatch.



Bug report thread.

Enjoy!










----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Legacy info

A delta is up at the below link

Fixes
- enchant (abiword spell check)
- didwiki
- notecase
- help page [ Laughing boots ]
- vobcopy
- encrypted save files
- latest woof fixes to ptheme and various other things

Sorry about deltas, but I need to preserve bandwith for the big upload of 2 distros - soon Wink

Get it from here

iso 207 MB
devx 141 MB
checksums at that location

Changes

- Heaps of woof-CE changes and enhancements
- updated firefox
- added libnss (and friends - easier for other browsers)
- updated abiword-3.0.1
- updated pmusic-4.7.1
- added npapi-sdk (devx)
- added mkwallpaper (checkout what it can do and some of the new randomly generated wallpapers!)
- improvements in jwm_config/ptheme thanks to zigbert

Kernel is the same. I won't be upgrading before release.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kernel sources are uploaded to the repo in pet_packages-slacko14.1. The sfsget program is good enough to find them. Only needed if you want to compile 3rd part drivers such as nvidia, ATI, Broadcom, ndiswrapper (which is included in the stock kernel) and others.

Kernel is 3.14.55 LTS NO PAE. A PAE kernel is provided, version 4.1.11 LTS located here. You can use the change_kernels script included on the iso if you have a frugal install to USB or HDD. Sorry, boot off CD/DVD and FULL installs are unsupported at this stage.
There is another alternative kernel, version 3.18.22 LTS. Just look for 'slacko' without the 64. You can also use the old 3.4.94 kernel too.

This is a follow up to the now dated 5.9.3 development.

I am aiming for slacko-6.1 by mid November at the latest.

This version is built from woof-CE testing branch commit 4c1f96e and is fully reproducible. See this thread for more on building slacko.

More to come.

Thanks, just downloading it now. As it happens I'm posting from Slacko 5.5.0.2, which may be obsolete but is still a good all-round workhorse IMO.

I'm using it now. It has a quirk though which I haven't seen before and feel I should mention; when I tried to set up the Internet I got the message, “Unable to connect to the network”, despite the fact all the lights in my router were on.

When I got this for the third time I decided to ignore it and just press the DHCP button in the connection wizard to set it up as normal, and it worked just fine. I'm posting from 6.0.8.1 now.

Also, I couldn't find a spell checker in Abiword. Is it not meant to have one, to save space?

Checking Slacko 6.0.8.1 and Slacko64 6.0.8.1 ( Shocked ) focusing on JWM for the moment.
The /root/.jwm/root-menus/menu{1,2,3} symlinks disappear during build so JWM configuration will complain and nor work properly.
Till the next version, type in terminal:
Code:
ln -sf /usr/local/jwm_config/menu_build_mouseaction /root/.jwm/root_menus/menu1
ln -sf /usr/local/jwm_config/menu_build_bookmarks /root/.jwm/root_menus/menu2
ln -sf /usr/local/jwm_config/menu_build_main /root/.jwm/root_menus/menu3
to fix this.

JWM theme switcher is looking for themes in /usr/share/jwm/themes so themes in /root/.jwm/themes need to move there to function. Only the <theme>-colors and <theme>-jwmrc are needed (so the applet does not provide any preview of the tray and the buttons - but that's OK I guess).
There included themes are mostly OK for bar colour but the flat-green crashes the switch applet.
So themes should be repackaged or a PPM post install hack is needed to utilize old themes. I thing verification and repackaging is more reasonable.

(Top) Tray configuration will not function on first boot Confused Apply does not do anything either (and that's after the symlinks are fixed).
After reboot works OK.

When you open the top tray configuration (tray 2) a tasklist is added into the tray although at the time the tray does not have it After you remove it close and reopen, the task list is reintroduced!

I'm not a fan of absolute links. Relative links are much better and do work more reliably in woof.

Since ziggy isn't using git CLI it's probably impossible for him to do this.

I'm probably quiet for a few days to come but I'll keep it in mind. Maybe raise an issue and assign me.

Yes, that what I have in my local git but I did not commit since I did not test. Should I?

In the mean time till proper testing and repackaging, here is a PPM hack that can fix some of the the jwm themes to work with the new jwm-config

Looks good! Feels smooth and liking the colors/theme. Smile

In Slacko 5.7 (k3.10.32), my speakers would always make this loud popping sound right before it got to desktop... I'm glad that this version doesn't have that quirk any more. I tried using the "save to folder" option for the first time and it's working well, and just discovered the power of the "Pup-Advert-Blocker" option in Menu -> Internet and it is also working great.

Small notice: the icon for "Open Location" is missing in Gnome-MPlayer (1.0.9b). Replacing /usr/sbin/gnome-mplayer with the one from Slacko 5.7 (1.0.8b) doesn't seem to fix it, so it seems to be relying on an external icon somewhere? (I wonder where)

edit: I uploaded the missing icons from /usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16 (apparently Playlist was missing repeat icons too).

PostPosted: Tue 27 Oct 2015, 14:05    Post subject: LAN-WAN in base system behaves as expected without any issue  

Booted from DVD
Report: On the AIO PC, which has been problematic to Slacko64-6074 use, this 32bit base 6081 system boots with its LAN + WAN behavior following traditional PUPs. Works!
Code:
# uname -a                                                                 
Linux Slacko6081onAIOtouch 3.14.55 #1 SMP Mon Oct 26 11:54:01 AEST 2015 i686 Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G2020 @ 2.90GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

Frugal setup
I will follow with a 2nd report as soon as I can get your a frugal setup to test the latest kernel on this PC.

Thanks for all you do!

jwm/ptheme - one step further. See attached pet
- updated gtk/jwm theme setters
- more fixing to tray-configurator
- The flat-green theme is fixed in attached pet.

Mavrothal
- I can not reproduce your problem with tray configuration at first run. Wonder what happens? Will you please verify it with the 0.3 'patch'. Any terminal output?
- Can you update to relative menu-links in Woof? Thank you!
- I have not looked at roxpin yet.
- Are you thinking of repacking jwm-themes, or maybe I should add them to jwm_config in Woof. After all there are other configuration tools out there which are using the /root/.jwm/themes/ standard. Radky released his new approach today - What a great bunch of jwm-lovers we are Very Happy
- Please report any issue - thank you.

Simplifying tray app is a bit complex, and I wonder if this is the right time...
Since Mick choose to use the old-school Puppy theming, it might be the best solution to skip the top tray as default. It is built as a part of the global Stardust themes (pTheme), and those show very few desktop icons. Combined with the icon-crowded Puppy desktop, the apps are doubled on the desktop.

My major thought is to execute a global ptheme at building stage (woof). Like this we have full control over theming, and non-coders could design a new Puppy. Also, the system doesn't know the active themes (gtk is ok), so reverting to default theme is tricky. We could build a global theme called ie. 'Puppy old-school' that reset all themes to default, but this would be hardcoded, and far from a good solution.

Anyone know if the "change kernel" utility is built into the 6081 system & Menu? I cannot find it.

More fixes
- remove border-code from tray settings - jwm doesn't support this anymore
- fix stardust jwm-themes (tray)

How cool it would be if a virtual keyboard was included...
... A traybutton beside 'show desktop' when user choose a global theme for touchscreen.
