Tried on AMD Radeon laptop
It got the correct resolution.
Videos playing in xine were very jerky. I tried different ouputs from xine but but that didnt make any difference.
libva and libvdpau errors. Dont know if they are relevant. See attachment.

Tried a different AMD Radeon laptop and x wouldnt start.
Xorgwizard said text mode disabled in this build.
Tried easy radeon.modeset=0 but still wouldnt start.

On an intel netbook resolution was correct and videos played ok.

wifi didn't work for me. It was missing the firmware driver rtl8712u.bin.

To solve the problem I went to the hidden folder:

/mnt/sdb2/.session/ (Wkg partition of the stick)

and created the following folders:

lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8712u.bin

to make wifi work.

Easy Linux 0.3
- very long time to start at 1st time.
- xine is better and smaller than vlc or kodi. Please keep xine only, it's my favorite.
- at first boot
Code:
 /etc/X11/xkb/symbols : No such file or directory

- xorgwizard doesnt work in console mode , too bad
Code:
Sorry, the text-mode Xorg Wizard is disabled for this build of Puppy.


Not alpha quality : X crashes (my video card is Radeon HD)
Code:
(EE) Backtrace :
Bus error at address 0x7f02e4c4a000

dmesg gives :
Code:
radeon 000:01:05.0 : GPU lockup ...
radeon 000:01:05.0 : ring 0 stalled ...

xwin gives in dmesg :
Code:
traps jwm[2963] trap invalid opcode in libpixman-1.so.0.34.0

I've tried unsuccessfully to get to the desktop.

I have noticed the Xerus64 (which works well) uses X Server 1.18.3

Easy 0.3 uses X Server 1.19.1 Release date 2017-01-11

Arch Linux uses
xorg-server-1.19.3-2

Fedora 25
xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.19.3-1.fc25.x86_64.rpm

Warning : these won't run on Easy linux because of dependencies

Thank you for sharing this knowledge.

As always, booting without drm_kms_helper ... no console and no desktop.

With boot parameter
Code:
 drm_kms_helper.edid_firmware=edid/1920x1080.bin
got a desktop.

renamed gpudriver.conf
Code:

mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/poulsbro.conf[b]HIDE[/b] /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/poulsbo.conf
after reboot got:
Direct Rendering Yes.

Name of that file does not matter (poulsb(r)o or 20-gpudriver.conf)
Important is only *.conf.

Note to Barryk:

If you are interested in backup software you should look at
Lucky Backup. It is free --> linux and windows versions
It uses rsync.

Running very nicely on Lenovo ideapad 110 with 2 X celeron intel @ 1.6 GHz of off Covfefe 16 GB USB stick.
Good job Barry, finally a 64 bit version that works for this laptop.
I like this new concept, I have always resented the fact that after selecting locales etc at first run, you had to do it all over after first shutdown.

This kernel is hot !

In easy 0.2 but surely the same in 0.3 :

- bugs in ppm due to language not english ?
For example, when installing xine :
Code:
# ppm
cat: /tmp/pup_event_sizefreem: No such file or directory
expr: syntax error
/usr/local/petget/installpreview.sh: line 101: [: 13757: unary operator expected

mkdir: can't create directory '/audit/deposed/libxine2_1.2.6DEPOSED': No such file or directory
mv: cannot move 'libxine2_1.2.6-1build5_amd64.deb' to '/audit/packages/': No such file or directory

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad W-510 with a Microsoft 3500 Wireless Mouse.
The mouse is dead and am stuck with the touchpad and trackpoint. Tried to fix as per the dead mouse option on the first boot menu but no dice

If you like to play around with glx you'll have to link:

and rename it to: libGLEW.so.1.9

Success!

Using 'rcrsn51's Samsung printer driver pet for 64-bit Puppies,
as well as his newest PeasyPDF v3.9 for cups printing.

The Print tool in old versions of PeasyPDF let you select a a range of pages to be printed. But that option has started to fail in some new, complicated PDFs that I tried. The print job would hang up in CUPS.

So v4.0 removes it. If you only want to print a selection of pages, extract them first using the Extract tool. This two-step procedure is a little slower, but works more reliably.

Thanks for all the feedback guys!

Sorry I haven't been very responsive recently, but I will get back to Easy.

Right now I am working on importing the remaining source packages into OpenEmbedded, see my latest blog posts.

After that exercise, I intend to read this forum thread and see if I can fix some of the issues, then do another build.
