I have been playing with the newest lighthouse and it is very nice.
Got it all as I wanted it yesterday with my DVB-t and cut down open office, firefox and java.
Then thought I would get the pwidgets application as it has that cool clock and side bar.
After I clicked on it in puppy package manager, it was very quiet. No message to say it was done and I found puppy had crashed.
Anyway no way would it let me get past the xwin bit on reboot.
Eventually today, I reinstalled it all over again.
This time I did it and then booted from cd and copied the pupsave file onto another hard drive aswell just incase it crashed again.
Well it did so if you have had an unexplained freeze, it might be the pwidgets install mucking things up.

Hi chrissy,
Thank you for the feedback. I will try it myself and see if there is a fix.

I suspect you have a different version of libxcb in Lighthouse Pup. This will cause the behaviour that chrissy describes.. as pointed out by Jim1911 and aarf in upup-457 built from woof by playdayz.

Perhaps the version of Pwidgets I specially made for Jim and aarf to test in upup will work in Lighthouse.. it is on this page.

I hope this helps.

Cheers
