Here is the first Test of Instant Update 001 for Lucid 5.2.8
(Also applicable to Three-Headed Dog)

Click the link to download the pet and then click to install - Reboot

X libgconf2-4_3.1.6 to enable Chromium-based browsers
X libgconf_DEV-3.1.6
X Help -> LupuNews puppylogo96 image without being connected
X update Firewallstate 2.0 tasmod
X update PupControl 1.7 radky includes very cool PupSysinfo
X update Pburn 3.3.5 zigbert
X change to Start with Playlist in gnome-mplayer for dvd’s otherwise gnome-mplayer shows black screen with audio until one changes size of screen - for dvd's, XineDVD is still better, but some people might expect the default media player to play dvd's with no fuss, not unreasonably Wink
X add Getflash (modified) from Slacko to update (or install) Flashplayer
X add Cloud Puppy by sszindian, under Utility

From rerwin:
# 1. Update /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG.
# 2. Reduce occurrences of DNS not being set for ppp connections to some USB-modem ISPs. (/etc/ppp/wvdial)
# 3. Retain access to prename script if devx also loaded (with a different script of the same name) (usr/share/applications/prename.desktop).
# 4. Set "show_msg=NO" configuration option for both of dillo's dillorc files (adding the one in /etc/dillo).
# 5. Correct missing "fi" statement in bareview script.
# 6. Personal Settings updates:
# . . a. Complete the hostname-change process by cycling connections and prompting user to log out.
# . . b. Simplify numlock preset logic.
# . . c. Avoid "barks" during full country-settings display but retain them for first runs with no pupsave files or full installations.
# . . d. Integrate firstrun-1.8.4 into lupu version of personal settings script but exclude new "extralang" support (which could be provided by a dot-pet package).

Question for Everyone: Should Three-Headed Dog try to accommodate more drivers and firmware, even to the extent of growing by 5MB (or more)?

Just one users opinion..... since Three-Headed Dog has already passed the point of loading in ram on a 256 MB machine I'd see no problem with extra drivers in order to work on more hardware. Additionally, since it's using the same kernel as Slacko, drivers and firmware should work there too.And vice versa.

Go for it! Thank you for this distribution with the later 2.6.37.6 kernel. Lucid 5.2.9 is a solid release that should continue to raise the bar.

Thanks,
Jim

You're welcome, but as I understand your initial issue isn't solved.

I did a same test as you, searched for a video and selected to play.
It did play right away, without that black portion thus but it played stuttering, for which I blame my CPU not being powerful enough.

Normally, I'd vote 'NO' for any compact distro. However, this one is a pretender to greater, errr, greatness - a bit like Lighthouse & co. Since most boards running Wary do best with 192Mb+ of SDRAM, using strips of 128+64, they should have no difficulty fitting 2x 128 strips for the extra utility of running an Lupu.[Anyone requiring an extra strip of 128 can send me a reply paid Jiffy bag for a gratis strip.]. Furthermore, as an advocate of the Xfce DE, it'd be well worth the extra RAM to run James' latest option. Checks & balances, it would be a welcome development if BK could lower the minimum Wary requirement to a single strip of 128 for those boards that used to have issues with either a second filled slot (2 x64) or memory-matching, a common 'feature' from that era.

YES - I vote for adding more firmware for networking (wireless), since being able to get online seems essential to me. At least try to support the drivers already included in the kernel.
IMO, it's a bit of a waste for hardware to not be recognized only due to missing firmware.

Glad to hear that.
Yes sometimes one can't explain why a fresh install solves things.
Something was corrupted probably.

Béèm and backi, My testing is that there was some problem with the dailymotion site yesterday--it was having trouble getting to its advertising so the video would never play because the ad had to play first! So I think it is OK on both 528 and 529, on both gecko-browsers and chromium-browsers.

Stuttering *might* be helped by installing Xorg_High or the appropriate ATI or Nvidia proprietary driver (use Quickpet Drivers) if they are not already installed.

Oh dang, dailymotion is not working again. I wonder why.....

Add -> I uninstalled and re-installed the Test Instant Update 001 and it started working. So as Béèm says something may be getting corrupted. I will try to notice what I did just before if it stops again. Really, we are in good shape if we have time to try to run this little thing down Wink

I am not even sure what is playing the video--on youtube it is flashplayer but right-clicking on a youtube video gives flashplayer info, but not on dailymotion.
