Hi mistfire,
i just install your puppy, thanks for your work, and note that you use thunar with these networks capabilities.
I'm trying for a long time to get thunar with network capabilities to work but never win !
Can you explain me all i need to get it works ?
Thanks,
Philippe

r42 install updated to r43 on the frugal Grub4Dos install to SSD on my core 2 duo laptop. Continuing to use the stock 4.10.2 kernel on the core 2 duo. No issues at all noted. I haven't gotten to the Pentium M yet. Could you expand a bit on the changes to initrd? Might make it easier to test.

Thanks,

well @rg66 (the original creator of x-slacko) can answer your questions about thunar.

Here are the changes in initrd:
* Easier pupsave management and upgrade (dialog command is implemented)
* Bugs for humongous initrd is fixed.
* A bug where pupsave 2fs/3fs/4fs file was still mounted (that supposed to be unmounted) if the user declines to upgrade is fixed.

@Pelo you can use touchscreen or tablet peripheral in X-Slacko Slim however its just an experimental. It does not guaranteed that it will work because I have no computer with a touchscreen. I noticed that the lxpup 4.10.2 kernel has touchscreen drivers. So I decided to add xorg driver for touchscreen and a touchscreen calibrator. But It does not affect the size of the puppy.

Subject description: kernel 3.14.56. Wlan1 is inop 3.14.55 would be the right choice
 

about people satisfaction our devs of course are working linked in their workshop. Think about people where wireless is hard to join, they bought a dongle for which a driver is needed and compiled for Puppy Linux (wlan1). That is much more important than PAE (useless IMO), bluetooh, and touchscree,.
My X-Slacko Slim running now is it the kernel 3.14.56. Wlan1 is inop. Wlan 0 is active just for a while. Simply use 3.14.55 I/O 3.14.56 would change my wworld, because driver is made available for Realtek 8192CU by rcrsn 51 in Puppy forum.
Thousands of people are concerned. I am sad that devs make life better to already rich people, but don't have in mind laptop owners. All the new kernels really don't bring anything for most of us.
One of reasons of great success for Puppy was to get old computers with XP continue their life, fast and easy With Puppy. Would Puppy nowadays changes its mind to deal only with bluetooth, wide screens and Tv , becoming unserviceable for its first 'customers' ? And unserviceable for Puppy makers themselves unless they buy new hardware ?

Subject description: Has a market
 

Mistfire,

Please continue your effort for slim x slacko. To be honest this puppy is the closest to puppy from earlier times. And small in size.
From your releases i understand you are not trying to create a new puppy, but are sharing whatever you are building for your personal needs. And that is great.
In fact it is one of the most vivid and inspiring developments on the forum.
Just look at the popularity of Barrys Easy linux. Hardly any activity. That was completely different in the Wary and Racy times.

Succes mistfire....keepp the good work.

@Pelo: Unfortunately, building a kernel has become a do-it-yourself procedure. So people want to churn out their own versions without considering how to provide extra drivers that are not included.

A better strategy for the community would be to build a small collection of reliable kernels that people can easily drop in using instructions like here.

Thank you. Actually I want it to make SFS even more smaller. Im still searching an more lightweight browser but still complies SSL, HTML5, and AJAX. Also I'm still searching for a smaller media player and a smaller initrd.

Volhout is right and so are you, misty - small and smaller is definitely on the right track. And so is rcrsn right. We cannot bug you to follow our personal prejudices and preferences, although suggestions might help you from time to time. The wider the utilisation the better, of course. Chasing a better, smaller browser is going to be a considerable challenge. Some developers have chosen to select a text browser or semi-text browser (Dillo) so that users can post-install a full-size one of their choice. However, that ends up with a larger overall package unless the preferred browser is reloaded every boot-up. Perhaps one solution would be an embedded command to install the preferred browser from the InterWeb at start-up without carrying the overhead in the .iso it would otherwise incur?

the browser benchmarks listed here might interest you.
Xombrero beat Chrome and Midori on some measures!
