Mostly I would like to know if PUI recognizes different partitions ok. And can you make puppy installation with it now. Does the mounted drive pngoverlay works straight. There are bugs in 500.2 so that version will be very temporary. I have already found that my pet for notecase missed some libs. I will add them to next build tomorrow.

Uget is still unresolved. I havent get good grip to any errors which would show me the way.

Anyway, quite a many bugs have been found and many of them has been fixed. I have now almost done the e17 pet which has those modified scripts included.

I just would need nice wm switcher gui.

If I promise to include all PupApps to the dpup, maybe radky could include e17 to the wm switcher or is it there already ?
Fine idea, I installed all of Radky's little applications including PupApps to Iguleders E17 squeeze dpup and they worked great, even included PupApps as an application executed from the E17 bar. I also installed all of radky's little apps to your experimental version. Looking forward to your E17 implementation. I thought that I would be switching back to JWM, however , Iguleders E17 is superlative and I elected to stay with it although he did share the necessary code to switch back and forth between E17 and JWM.

Haven't tried the installer, however, all my partitions including ntfs, ext3, ext4, and swap were recognized properly.

Cheers,
Jim

It seems to me that going back to JWM is typing in the X prompt xwin JWM.

According to Iguleder's response to my question about switching, it's a little more involved
Iguleder wrote:
In order to set JWM as the default desktop, exit X (Enlightenment->Exit or JWM's "Exit X Server" or whatever it was), then do this:
Code:
echo jwm > /etc/windowmanager

or that to switch to E17:
Code:
echo enlightenment_start > /etc/windowmanager

Then, start X again:
Code:
startx


That's all, the change is persistent.
However, I liked E17 and never switched to JWM.

Hi pemasu,

Please check your PM. Smile

Radky sent me wm switcher which worked nicely between jwm and e17. I will include this one to the next version along with e17.
There are some other minor changes I have to think about also.
I will now also test all Radkys applications also. And check the recent version status.
I am not sure if I can do all this today.

An other thing to consider. There isnt any udev package installed from squeeze.I dont know how this affect to for example usb 3g modem recogntion and usb modeswich function.

I tested squeeze package udev 167p and...it is much different than lucid udev 151-12. So much that it broke dpup.

Well....I hacked together udev package from Barrys udev 167p and from squeeze udev 167p....but I really dont have knowledge how to test the result. At least my laptop didnt suffer from my result. It would need devices which needs certain udev rules to function before I would know if rules are used.

Unfortunately it would need some guru like rerwin to inspect the result.
I wont include my hacked result to next version, I just reminded of the lack of it.

I gave 5002 a quick run live pfix=ram run on the Athlon XP box and did a full install in Vbox on another machine. Looked pretty good ,will test more later.

5.0.0.3 version is now processing. I made already build and tested it, but I had forgetten one icon and also my safety hack for muted sound at bootup. I added them to the build.
Next version has jwm, e17 and wmswitcher in the menu.
Thank you Radky.
Menu > Help opens Smokey01`s Phelp 101 version.
Radky`s all PupApplications are included. Thank you of your great apps, Radky.
Lxappearance is changed back to dpup gtk-chtheme. There is reasons.
Freememapplet_tray has right click to open Lxtask.
So far found bugs are hopefully fixed.
I compiled little older Uget version and it hopefully works now. I had that version from 3/2011 and so it fairly recent. Didnt bother to download atm newer version.
Menu`s submenu content has been arranged little better now.

Iso size now 127 Mb. I am reluctant to make this base version any larger.
One main sfs. No separate z...sfs. It hopefully helps Dave S.

I will probably upload it tonight.

Uploading now. I forgot to change default wm as jwm so next version seems to boot into e17.
I had forgotten couple of left over icons to Pinboard in the jwm. Remove them. They are obsolete. I dont know from what cache they are from. Need to chase them down.
I have also changed synclient to use wheezy one. It has better movement support for my touchpad. Might help others. For me touchpad movement slider didnt work over 1.0. Now it works as it should, even to the 10. Dont test. I tried it and had difficulties to get it back.

Before anyone asks. Wm swither in e17 is found under desktop in the Applications menu.

Now I should get familiar with e17 also. Luckily here is whole thread about it. And a lot info and link to the e17 guide in that thread.

frugal manual hdd install to ext3. broadom built in wl.ko connects via Frisbee flawlessly as usual. background wallpaper changer didn't work error about pinboard not chosen.

not used e17 so will take some time poking around to do the usual checks.

pemasu did you keep advancecomp and optipng in the devx.sfs? looking good!


------

wm switcher working here and in jwm background changer works.
------
renamed savefile on this install starting with fresh save and pfix=ram.
